Mask of the Week: Acwell Honey Anti-Wrinkle Daanji Mask

I must say, I am loving My FaceTory subscription and the masks that I receive!  This time I tried the Acwell Honey Anti-Wrinkle Daanji Mask. My favorite thing about this sub is that these are all, pretty much, brands that are new to me as I dive deeper into KBeauty.

The My FaceTory sub is $6 per month, going up to $8, and for my first two months, the retail price of the sub items has been pretty much on par with the cost of the sub. While normally I would think that was a horrible value - what is the point of a bundled sub if you don't save some money? - here I am OK with it because if I had to purchase 4 KBeauty masks, in the US, and have them shipped to me, there is no way I would only spend $6 or $8 on 4 masks, even if they were all Amazon purchases.  So far, so good.

I decided to try the Acwell Honey Anti-Wrinkle Daanji Mask because I read great reviews about it on a KBeauty blog. Honey is supposed to be super moisturizing, which is something I constantly need in my skincare products.

First, let me tell you, the smell is amazing! While many masks have a simple, clean smell, this smells like fresh honey and springtime. It is not sweet or cloying at all, but just a fresh honey scent. Loved it!

What I did not love? The fit! Take a look below...

Seriously, I am convinced that my face is an odd shape. Is it just me?! This was a thicker fabric mask, drenched with essence, but really hard to mold to my face. It's got to be me.

I kept this on for about 20 mins. It stayed saturated the entire time and my face felt cool and smooth to the touch once I removed it. Con: it also felt a little sticky! You know, like there was honey in it? LOL. I followed this up with some Purito serum but overall, I wasn't terribly impressed with this mask.

Have you tried Acwell masks? What do you think?

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:


Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.


Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.


Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?



I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!



The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!

PS: Fuck Trump!
