My Experience with La Shield Sunscreen Gel SPF 40 PA +++

I use it every morning before I go out, I feel it is a little greasy and it leaves a yellowish sheen on the face for some time. But it is amazing as a sunscreen as I have seen a major difference in my skin in terms of pimples, marks, and overall skin tone and pores. My skin feels hydrated and after I wash off the sunscreen I feel better skin every time than the days I didn’t use it.

I feel it is really good for oily acne prone skin. It does a little goodness to the screen.

Forest Essentials Soundarya Facial Ubtan Review 4

When I started using it, I had blemishes and acne marks, which were well visible, with first use I found my skin to become softer, I found that all the small pimples were gone. Within a week I found visible changes in the marks. To my surprise my skin felt very smooth, it reduces the occurrence of pimples and the marks, and it worked magic on them.  With IN two and half months (1 container is done) use of it, now my skin feels fresh, clean, no scars (mostly reduced), pimple free. As all the ubtan’s from forest essentials have tan removing capabilities, a nice glow, and naturally fresh skin are what the result was.

  1. Gives you smooth skin.
  2. No scars, clean skin.
  3. Skin feels refreshed and cool.
  4. Using it before makeup gives clean look.
  1. It’s Price, biggest of negatives.
  2. Not a travel-friendly packaging.
  3. Should definitely use a toner after using it.
Would I repurchase and recommend?

Yes, with a thumbs up.

I started using it when I had acne scars, a little pigmentation and yes acne too. But at first I was a little hesitating to use try it, but I became a fan of it from the first time itself, I have seen the results and they were amazing. I placed may be ¼th of the drop on a pimple and by next day morning, it shrieked visibly, It took a little while to show its magic on scars but on pimples it was amazing, it reduced an entire pimple in 3 days. I loved it, I always have one at office and one at home, to apply it on pimples, but for scars night time is the best, just by applying it on scars for about 2 weeks I could see difference, I actually applied it on my face and could see the change in pigmentation, my skin was visibly brighter and hydrated.

Innisfree Special Care Foot Mask Review 5

Innisfree Special Care Foot Mask Review

by Lalitha Lavanya

Innisfree Special Care Foot Mask Hello girls,I always like to have sheet masks and then Innisfree is among my top favorites, I tried their special foot mask, I loved it, I ordered it on nykaa and it came in just 3 days and I tried it after having a mini pedicure at home. Just some rock salt, lemon, jojoba oil drops in warm water, kept my feet in it for about 20 min and then pat dried my feet and tried the special foot mask. I suggest the same to anyone who wants to try this sheet mask first get your feet neatly washed and then try the mask for better results.

Innisfree Special Care Foot Mask Review


It is priced at 200.

My experience with Innisfree Special Care Foot Mask:

I have to say that yes I have expected the mask to make my feet soft and bring that glow which was very much needed and to my surprise it worked exactly the same.

Innisfree special care foot mask packaging is super comfortable, travel-friendly. You have to tear open the packaging and the mask for the foot is attached to each other you just have to pull them apart. I feel the mask was well packaged and the mask has a soft outer sheet which lets you walk around to do your work, which means you can do your work even after having them on. Firstly when you open the package you can smell the amazing fragrance.

I had the sheet mask and then left it for about 25 min and then I took the mask off to my surprise my feet felt so smooth like very smooth and of course hydrated, glowing. I didn’t wash my feet. I massaged and left that liquid to stay on my feet for the entire night. The morning I woke up to smooth and glowing feet, that’s something I liked  :)

It’s definitely a thumb up from my side, I had the mask again after 7 days and I really loved it, somehow I feel my feet are way smoother now.

Innisfree Special Care Foot Mask Review 4

Overall performance 

I like it, I feel like it’s the perfect thing I want before a party. I am completely satisfied with the product and its performance, but the only thing is that I feel 200 is a little expensive for one-time use.

If there are more varieties in foot mask available, I would have felt much happier. I feel if there were mask targeting a specific problem then it would have been even better.

I wish there was an extra liquid pack available just to finish off by applying it on and leaving it for the entire night.  :)

  1. Smoothens
  2. Hydrates
  3. Travel-friendly packaging
  4. Easy to use sheet masks
  5. You can do you work, walk around with this mask on
  6. Less time and good results
  7. Glowing skin is the result.
  1. I feel it is a little expensive.

Different sheet masks are not available for the foot; this could have been more problem specific.

Would I recommend /repurchase?

A big yes, I gave it to my mom and she is very happy with it. I suggested it to my friend and she is using it way more than me.

Will I buy it again?

Ordered already.

Innisfree Cucumber Squeeze Mask Review 3

Hi Beautiful,

My love for sheet masks will never die and of course, Innisfree is always my first pick. Now Korean brands always come up with the product that has such amazing healing properties that I so love them, a foundation comes with skin healing, moisturizing and rejuvenating properties that are a thumb up from my side.I tried the Innisfree its real squeeze mask cucumber (sheet mask), guess what?

I am super impressed, now I bought it from nykaa, because Innisfree doesn’t have a store at my place but you can try their exclusive stores in Delhi, Mumbai etc or get it on nykaa, Amazon but I felt Amazon was charging way more than it should be, so you can try nykaa or you can get it from their Indian site, check this out, they always have some exciting offers on mask.

Innisfree Cucumber Squeeze Mask Review

 Basic Information about Innisfree Cucumber Squeeze Mask

Price: 100 for 20 ml.

Brand Claims:  This triple-layer sheet has a long-lasting moisturizing effect so that the essence can gradually be absorbed into the skin. Cucumber contains effective ingredients that make your skin clear and vital with natural moisture.


Innisfree Cucumber Squeeze Mask Review 1

My Experience with Innisfree Cucumber Squeeze Mask:

You have to see where the mask is inside the packaging and then move it down a little and use the short c’s provided to tear off the packaging carefully when I opened the pack it gave a little strong smell but when I had it on, it really gave a cucumber feel. I first cleansed my face, used a toner as suggested in the instructions and then had it on my face. I really wanted to see whether it is really that hydrating as it claims so I didn’t use the night cream the day before and the day I was putting it on I didn’t use the morning moisturizer and as I said I used the mask  after toning and let It stay on my face for about 20 minutes and then I took the mask off and wiped the mask around my eyes and the remaining liquid in the pack, the liquid in the pack can be refrigerated  and then you can apply it on your face, but I choose it to apply  after removing the mask, I let that stay on for about 8 – 10 min and then I rinsed off with lukewarm water as suggested.

 How did I feel?

Amazing, it was so hydrating that I really felt my skin was hydrated from inside and I really felt that glowing skin. The effect was there for about 2 days. My skin felt smooth, glowing and hydrating for 2 days. I liked the mask very much. If you have any party that suddenly turns up you can use this for that instant glowing skin.

How is it different from any other sheet mask?

Well, I don’t compare the cucumber mask with any other I have tried like the Innisfree lime, Innisfree tea tree. One thing that’s common is the hydrating effect among them and the smooth glowing skin that they give. But it is one mask that everyone, every skin type should give a try at. I somehow felt Innisfree cucumber was a little more hydrating than lime.

Innisfree Cucumber Squeeze Mask Review 2

The overall performance of Innisfree Cucumber Squeeze Mask

It’s a big thumb up and definitely a good try product. Hydrating effect amazing. Well, I am super impressed with the performance thing but I feel it could be a 2 sheet pack because the mask has excesssssss juicy content which actually comes down to the neck drop by drop, if it is a pack of 2 then it is appreciable.

Overall I am super impressed.

Would I recommend?

Surely yes,

I recommended it to my friends; I gave it to my mom. It’s definitely worth trying and I always keep one handy at home, just to help me during sudden party preparations.
