My Beauty Diary Chocolate Truffle Sheet Mask [Review]

chocolate truffle my beauty diary

Have you tried on sheet beauty masks? They are super convenient to remove (you don’t have to scratch your face to remove every bit of it from it) and they can be very cheap… in Asia.

A few years ago, I bought the affordable Asian super-star: My Beauty Diary Sheets Masks Continue reading

Alorée Chlorovitae Radiant Face Mask [Review] *

After talking about the Lush face mask Catastrophe Cosmetic… let’s talk about an other one, Chlorovitae Radiant from Alorée. I received it in France (this French brand is sold by Sephora), but you can fond it easily online in the UK.

You know why I love face masks: they are real care for the skin, because we applied them on bare skin and leave them for a few minutes there for their active ingredients to work. This one from Alorée promise us to detoxify and purify our skin, and to protect us against ageing thanks to its antioxidant properties. Certified Ecocert Greenlife and Cosmebio, this Radiant face mask is supporting research on chlorophyl.

Adapted to sensitive skins, we can use this mask in three different ways: in 5-minutes mask when we are in a hurry, in 10-minutes mask when we want to relax (thick layer on the skin) or in a scrub (with the Chlorovitae powder). Even if this product is a little bit sticky on the skin, it’s easy to apply and it does not let your skin dry (never let your skin dry during a facial mask, never).

This Alorée mask smells good like chlorophyl (but less strongly than a chewing-gum, hopefully) and is easy to rinse with clear water. After using it, my skin is immediately softer (I can feel it with my fingers or just see it with my eyes), like purified. It’s definitely more radiant, even during winter!

Because I do not need to use a large amount of product every time I use this mask, my 50mL tube lasts months and I feel like it worths the price (24 euros). I do recommend you this product, especially if you have an oily skin as mine!

My review: 5 Stars (5 / 5)

Yes To Carrots C is for Hair Care Mask [Review]

Let’s talk about hair care today with my review of the hair mask “C is for Hair Care” from the brand Yes To Carrots.

Hair care masks are like facial masks: essential. Used twice a week, they provide a real treatment to the hair, especially because we use them when the hair is clean (less sebum on the hair = the active compounds can work easily) and because we have to leave them on the hair for a few minutes (the active have time to work).

Usually, hair care masks are not supposed to be applied on the scalp, to avoid making our roots too oily. This hair care from Yes To Carrots is particular as it is said to be designed to moisture the hair and the scalp. To be honest with you, I did not try it on my scalp, as my roots are already oily enough… and silicone is present on the ingredients list. Talking about this list, it’s not that bad: 23 on 33 ingredients are natural and non allergenic, and the first 10 are definitely good.

My “C is for Hair Care” mask is a big pot of 250mL of product. Let me reassure you right now: it does not smell like carrots! The smell is mostly flowery, very easy to deal with. A small amount of mask is enough to treat my lengths. They are definitely softer and less heavy: my curls are even more alive with this mask.

Available at Sephora in France, the brand Yes To Carrots doesn’t seem very famous in the UK. I found this mask on Amazon UK, anyway: £25 on Amazon for two pots, or less than 15 euros in France for one…
