If you know me, you’ll know my love for sheet masks. They are easy to use, gives immediate results and are perfect on busy days when you want to look refreshed without spending much time. I recently came across the instagram page of Mond’sub and were kind enough to send me sheet mask samples which I’ll be reviewing today.
Why are sheet masks effective?
If you are wondering how these sheet masks work and why the world is going gaga over them, I’ve got the answer. A lot of normal skin care products evaporate when it is applied on the face and takes time to make a difference. But these sheet masks form a barrier and locks the ingredients in and prevents from evaporating. This is why sheet masks are different from normal masks and are considered magical.
This mask as its name suggests is a 3D mask which covers face, neck and ears. The main ingredient of this mask is brown rice which contains variety of nutritional enzymes, proteins, amino acids and vitamin ingredients. These can instantly penetrate into the skin, soften the skin, purify and brighten the skin. They also soften skin cuticles, enhance the elasticity of the skin, nourish the skin to make you look more gorgeous.
This also has a sachet of Pentapetide essence which is excellent for anti – aging, bleaching, anti – wrinkle and brightening.
Price – INR 200
Availability – Purplle
Apply the mask on the cleansed face, hang the mask onto ears. Keep it for 15 minutes and then remove the mask. Massage the excess product with finger tips before rinsing with warm water. For better results, use it 2 – 3 times a week.
This sheet mask was easy to apply as it has proper instructions on the pack in English. It gave me a cooling effect as soon as I applied it and was extremely soothing. I kept it on for 15 to 20 minutes and the mask had extra essence even after. My face had become soft, bright and nourished. I applied the Pentapetide essence and left it overnight which had worked well. I’m sure that this sheet mask will make the skin flawless if used 2 to 3 times in a week.
2. Mond’sub Anti – Wrinkle & Moisturising Facial Mask
This sheet mask has three layers of mask and the sheet mask to be used is in the middle guarded by a white pearlised film and a outer blue film. This way the goodness of the mask is locked safe. It is formulated with several plant extracted essences and this formula is specially designed for dry skin, mature or prematurely ageing skin. The mask can promote skin’s metabolism, balances skin nutrients and water.
Price – INR 200 (offer price INR 99)
Availability – Purplle
This mask was easy to apply, made my skin cool and relaxed my mind. After 15 minutes, when I removed the sheet mask, my skin was rejuvenated, moisturized, bright and glowing. The glow lasted for about 2 to 3 days even after hitting the beach. This impressed me so much and it is the best mask which I’ve tried till now. I can’t comment on anti – wrinkle claims but this made my skin look younger.
Overall, Mond’sub sheet masks have impressed me so much. I would highly recommend you all to try these masks and I’m sure that you will be impressed too. In my experience, I found the anti – wrinkle and moisturizing facial mask to be more effective. They have other exciting variants such as gold mask which I’ll be trying in near future. These are perfect if you are expecting a parlor like glow at home.
Note – Do an allergy test on skin before using the product. Apply little liquid behind the ear skin and test.

Hand-made soaps are a rage now and I’ve always wondered the reason till I started using this soap. My skin is sensitive and not many soaps suit me and I stick to only one brand. As soon as I opened my ZoBag, I could smell a strong mint smell and I picked this soap. The smell was so refreshing but I was skeptical about using.
The moment I opened the outer package, I couldn’t resist using it. It lathers well and is easy to spread. It gave me a strong cooling sensation which is similar to that of a prickly heat powder. My entire body was cool and refreshed.
I haven’t ever experienced this before and it soothed my heat boils too. It has definitely made my skin soft and minimized rashes. But I can’t comment on how well it works against age related skin problems.
This soap is perfect for summer and is one of the best products from May ZoBag. I’m so glad that the team chose this product and I would highly recommend ZoBag to you all. Have you ordered your ZoBag? If you haven’t, order here now!

Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon is the talk of the town and I had to try them or else the lipstick lover in me would feel guilty. Lakme lipstick was the first ever lipstick that I used (obviously from my mom’s vanity). They used to be in brown sturdy packaging back then and now have transformed to attractive crayon like packaging. Lakme enrich lip crayons are available in 10 shades and I bought the shade ‘Mauve Magic’.
The lip crayon resembles a crayon with a sturdy black cap. The packaging is color coded which makes it easier to identify the shades. The outer label has the shade name, manufacturing details etc.
Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon is priced at Rs. 180 for 14.4 g of product with a sharpener.
Embrace the all new formulated lip colour crayon by Lakmé and use your lips like a canvas to create a vibrant look. Get smooth and matte finish lips with this lip colour crayon by Lakmé that is infused with mineral powders. It has a soft texture and is available in 10 gorgeous shades that suit all Indian skin tones. It also has a rich blend of olive and jojoba oil that simultaneously conditions your lips. For your convenience, the all new Lakmé Enrich Lip Crayon comes with a sharpener.
Color & Pigmentation
The shade Mauve Magic isn’t a mauve shade exactly but is a more pinkish shade. This is a MLBB kind of a lip shade. The pigmentation is good and two swipes will make pigmented lips opaque.
The lip crayon isn’t completely matte and has a powdery finish. It is comfortable on the lips and didn’t make my lips dry though I skipped moisturizing.
The lip crayon stayed on my lips for about 6 to 7 hours till I removed it with a makeup remover. It isn’t transfer proof but survived few glasses of water, juice and dinner. After dinner, the color had faded just slightly.
The brand ‘Lakme’ needs no introduction and I was excited when they introduced their lip crayons at an affordable price. When almost all cosmetics are getting costlier, it is great to see a leading brand introduce affordable new generation lip crayons without compromising with the quality.
I was quite disappointed with the shade as it is more of a pink than a mauve shade. But other than that, I’m impressed with this lip crayon. It has a free sharpener as a limited period offer and saves the pain of finding a suitable sharpener. Mauve Magic is a perfect daily wear shade and is appropriate for college, office etc. It is travel friendly as the sturdy cap wouldn’t get lost in your hand bag (which is common with lip crayons).

The ZoBag is packed in a huge cardboard box filled with straw for safe transportation. The products are packed in a classy jute pouch which is spacious. The jute pouch was wrapped and had a ribbon bow which stole my heart. The jute pouch has ‘Be Your Own Queen’ printed on it which goes well with the theme and has a golden tassel.
The ZoBag is priced at Rs. 499 and has products worth Rs. 1339. How awesome is that?

‘Subscription bags are like a gift to me from me’ is a saying that is best suited for ZoBag as it was wrapped exactly like a gift. I had the same excitement of receiving gifts although I knew what was inside the bag. The theme ‘Be Your Own Queen’ is a well thought and unique concept. Right from the straw, jute pouch and the products inside, everything had a blend of nature and that makes this new subscription bag stand out from the crowd. The brands that they’ve chosen are very good and ZoBag has products which are almost triple the price.
‘It is very evident that the team has worked hard to curate the products and keep the customers excited even after opening their gifts.’
To be your own queen, order your ZoBag here and don’t forget to wear your invisible crown!

As soon as I opened the outer bubble wrap, I could smell the fragrance of rose and other herbs. It was a pleasant smell which didn’t irritate my sensitive nose. The consistency of the face pack was neither too runny nor very thick. I applied it on my face and neck and waited for nearly 15 to 20 minutes to dry. But it didn’t dry and still felt creamy which was quite new to me. It was easy to wash and left my face clean, soft and hydrated. My dry patches had been healed and my face felt nourished. The texture of my skin had improved and it looked fresh.
Hope you are all doing well.
