Peach AC Control Mask
~
Peaches are rich in moisture and Vitamin A Retinol components which helps control the oil and water balance of the skin. It helps normalize the skin turnover cycle with Retinol by preventing troubles and taking care of dead skin cells and provide smooth, hydrated skin. The mask contains Tea Tree Extracts to help sterilization and takes care of trouble spots and pores.

Watermelon Moist Mask
~
Watermelon fruit has 92% of water which is excellent for moisturizing and soothing for the skin during the hot weather. It contains natural aminoic acid called Citrulin and Betain that forms a natural moisturizing membrane on the skin, leaving it moisturized  as well as a smoother skin that does not dry out. The mask also contains Lavender Extract which helps soothe sensitive skin and provides liveliness.

I tried the watermelon mask first coz its mamasan's favorite!
It has this mild floral and sweet scent with plenty of essences in the packet. The mask texture itself is really thin and can fit bigger faces as well. Application is easy with no messy drip! I only hope that the cutout for mouth area can be improved by the slightest but the price tag and it being functional is the biggest win so no complains!!! Love the adherence of the mask which allows me to walk around and do some house chores while waiting. Skin feels cooling and soft after however the essences does take quite awhile before fully absorbing into the skin. If you do not want to wait, just wipe away with toner or rinse off and seal the goodness with your moisturizer! ^^ 

I am surprised that most parts are still moist upon removal of my 20 minutes masking session. I advise to go in with the remaining serum while the mask is still on coz they say that a moist mask upon removal is better for the skin. 

A'bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster
This BHA Blackhead Blaster is an easy and quick triple treatment for blackheads, whiteheads and dead skin for daily care. It contains natural ingredients to help gently deep cleanse the pores and removing dead skin cells while preventing any irritation or redness on the skin. Recommended for oily and combination skin type!

Brand: A'bloom
Item: BHA Blackhead Blaster
Content: 8g
Cost: RM16
Rating: 4.5/5
Re-purhcase: Maybe but this one stick will last me quite a while ^^

Ingredients:
Natural BHA - deep pore cleansing while exfoliating away dead skin cells.
Apricot Seed Powder - remove excessive sebum.
Charcoal - absorb the dirt in the pores.
Tea Tree Leaf Oil - soothing properties prevent redness and irritation on the skin.

Packaging:
Plastic sturdy packaging. Convenient to use but less hygienic in my opinion.

How-to:
Dampen the skin. Apply the stick directly on targeted areas and massage in circular motions for 30 seconds. After that, rinse of with water.

Thoughts:
I find the packaging really cute with terrified blackheads on it XD However the usage makes me feel like its a bit less hygienic but convenient to use especially when everyone do not have enough time these days. At my current pregnancy stage I try my best to stay away from BHA and salicylic-based products coz I read its not adviced so. Tried twice and I quite like it. Picture-wise, not much of a difference after first use. When I look at it up close, it does feel smooth and my whiteheads are lesser. Will definitely be using this more after I give birth. Application is easy and exfoliation feels super gentle with the apricot powder in it. The applied area does feel a bit dry but nothing a moisturizer couldn't fix ^^
I also read from other butterflies saying good things about this upon first usage too! Go read their thoughts too by finding hashtags in instagram #altheeaangels

Super smooth nose. Lesser whiteheads. I do not have much of a blackhead issue yet so will be trying more after giving birth! ^^ Heard loads of good stuff about this from other Althea Angels. Go read their thoughts! ^^

Giant Meringue Puff

Brand: A'bloom
Item: Giant Meringue Puff
Content: 1 piece
Cost: RM8
Rating: 4.5/5
Re-purchase: Yes

Material:
Made of non-latex sponge with hydrophilic properties that can grow 1.5x bigger than its normal size when soaked in water, allowing makeup to be applied perfectly on the skin. 

Packaging:
Cute pastel, meringue-inspired puffs

How-to:
Use it wet for a moist, glossy finish OR dry for a matte, flawless finish.

Thoughts:
For my face makeup application, I usually use my fingers or brush but never a blender/puff coz I feel lazy needing to clean it each time after use but these just looks super cute and soft to touch, especially when its soaked with water. This is my first time ever using a puff for my foundation application and I am glad its the A'bloom Giant Meringue Puff. I love a more dewy finish so I soaked it in water and the big base allows for a seamless and fast application of my foundation! I do not really like the fact that the puff 'eating' my foundation, but a wet puff 'eats' lesser foundation while giving me the desired airbrush effect! It also works well for baking my under eyes with loose powders as well as spreading my liquid blusher & cream contour!

This is me using a damp A'bloom Giant Meringue Puff to blend my foundation. I was shocked with the tone of foundation I chose but the blender makes it look so good so I went out looking tan but fabulous! XD

Baby Meringue Puff

Brand: A'bloom
Item: Baby Meringue Puff
Content: 3 pieces
Cost: RM11
Rating: 4.8/5
Re-purchase: YES

Material:
Made of non-latex sponge with hydrophilic properties that can grow 1.5x bigger than its normal size when soaked in water, allowing makeup to be applied perfectly on the skin.

Packaging:
Cute pastel, meringue-inspired puffs

How-to:
Use it wet for a moist, glossy finish OR dry for a matte, flawless finish.

Thoughts:
I love using the baby meringue at my under eyes for concealer and they don't crease as fast and gives me more precision. Also my first time using a puff to blend concealers and I love the precision! I use exclusively for blending my concealers as it does a veryyyy good job in my opinion!

I love using this A'bloom Baby Meringue Puff as it gives me great precision when it comes to blending out my nose contour as well as my concealer so seamlessly!!!!! Usually the concealer between my brows are flaky but not today as the damp baby meringue puff did the work!!! <3
