Now that I’m in my mid-30’s, I have made it my mission to really focus on my skin care regimen.   As you may have noticed,  Asians and Pacific Islanders really stand out when it comes to our skin, hair, and nails, and I’m no different.

I try tons of different skin care and hair care products all the time.  I was sent a couple of Taut’s Gold Standard Collagen Infused Masks to try and if you’ve read my past skin care reviews, then you know that I don’t hold anything back and I’ll give my down and dirty opinions on what I’m trying.

Size and Price:
5 masks in a package/$50
What Skin type is it for?
All skin types.
My skin type is oily.
What its supposed to do?
Tone, Hydrate, Brighten.
This mask refreshed my tired dull skin with this unbelievable, bipolar Florida winter weather we’ve had this year.  I also have had the worst allergies this year so the under of my eyes have been looking its worst in years.  This simply rejuvenated under my eyes and face that I’m glad that I was able to get these to try.
I’ve tried other sheet face masks and this one takes the prize!
Others that I’ve tried are very thin, paper-like and had a slimy feeling to where most of the products got on your hands more trying to spread them apart than actually getting the product on your face.
This thick, cloth-like masks has the products soaked into it so well actually stayed in place and didn’t drip everywhere.  The mask felt very natural against my skin as I laid and relaxed with it on.  I did however, had them on longer than the suggested 15 minutes, because they just felt so good.

Can you tell I was relaxed? 😉
How to apply:
Open the individual mask packet and separate it gently then apply against your skin.
It was perfect sizing for my face and fitted perfectly around my eyes.
Would I recommend? 
Most definitely!!
After I was done with my relaxing with it, my 7 year young son wanted to try it.  I took it off my face and used and the other side of the Taut mask for him.

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream Review

I received a little sample of the Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream from my Sephora perk points and I’ve used it for a month now.

The website it says the Origins GinZing eye refreshing:

– 80% reduction in puffiness

Now on to my personal review of the Origins GinZing Refreshing eye cream.

I chose this as my perk point freebie from Sephora because I love Ginseng skin products and I love the smell of Ginseng skin products.  BUT I have NOT seen any results of improvement from using this other than the fact that I’m tricking my brain since I’m using an eye cream, that I’m doing something good for my skin.

When I wake up in the mornings, I do my normal routine of washing my face, then I apply this by dabbing a little under and around my eyes.  NO unpuffiness going on, on this face.  NO covering of the dark circles…. Same Ole, Same Ole.

The cream itself has tiny lil speckles of glimmer and that’s what is supposed to “Brighten” around your eyes, but again with the brain tricks…. It’s only an illusion.

The shelf life of this product is 6 months and that gets me wondering on the efficiency of the essential oils that are in this jar???

I do know that I wouldn’t purchase the full-sized 15 ml jar for $30.

This may work for some but I haven’t seen or felt that I would recommend this to any of my friends or anyone that I know.  But, that’s just me.
