Labotica True Nature Sheet Masks

Labotica True Nature Masks by Leaders Cosmetics

We recently read an article about a study from the World Health Organization that found microplastics in drinking water. Another article that found microplastics in the air and in raindrops. As you can imagine, a buildup of microplastics in our system can be detrimental to our bodies. So, of course, we must be a bit more discerning about what we put in and on our bodies. Since skincare products are absorbed into the skin, we started paying more attention to beauty products. We were recently introduced to the Labotica True Nature masks by Leaders Cosmetics, a range of environmentally-friendly, hypoallergenic sheet masks made with natural organic ingredients.

Labotica True Nature Sheet Masks

Every formulation of Leaders Cosmetics’ Korean sheet masks is developed by a group of 15 leading dermatologists; their goal is to provide pure, natural and effective skincare. Leaders Cosmetics empower women to take care of themselves from the inside out. Their skincare products and formulations work in just 20 minutes of “me time”; and we all know how important self-care is. The Labotica True Nature masks boast four skin-loving sheet masks, each geared toward resolving a skin issue.

Labotica True Nature Sheet Masks

Labotica True Nature Brightening Mask – Perfect for those looking for a visibly brighter skin tone. The Rosa Damascena Flower Extract helps provide excellent brightening and moisturizing effects to brighten the skin tone.
Use this mask to brighten dull and tired skin, get rid of uneven skin tone, and fade dark spots. It deeply hydrates your skin and smoothes rough dry skin, leaving it dewy and supple.

Labotica True Nature Moisturizing Mask – Coconut Fruit Extract has an excellent moisturizing effect. It makes your skin feel soft and moisturized by providing an abundant amount of moisture. It’s excellent for those looking to resolve issues with rough, dry skin and signs of aging. The superbly Moisturizing sheet mask intensely moisturizes and soothes skin, provides essential nutrients, and promotes oil-moisture balance.

Labotica True Nature Revitalizing Mask – Looking to revitalize and nourish your skin? The Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract in the Revitalizing sheet mask provides excellent effects to improve skin resilience for healthier skin. It helps with loss of firmness and elasticity and dull, tired skin. It improves visible lines and wrinkles, deeply hydrates skin, leaves skin firm and smooth, and stops premature aging.

Labotica True Nature Pore Clearing Mask – This is our hero sheet mask. If you’re like us and looking to soothe and purify your pores, the Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract in this mask has excellent effects of tightening pores and soothing skin, leaving you with a smoother skin texture. It’s great for the treatment of acne, enlarged pores, and the appearance of scars. It refines and tightens pores, balances oiliness, and soothes troubled and irritated skin.

The Labotica True Nature masks retail for $3.00 each and $27.00 for a pack of 10. You can also purchase the Tencel Mask Kit, which includes one of each of the four sheet masks and an adorable Cat Ear Headband.

Cold Conditions Give Skin Relief: The NEW Snow Fox Skincare Collection

It is not even summer yet and the humidity is already doing a number on our skin. We don’t know how you guys are handling what feels like a layer of oil, dirt, heat, and grim on your faces (seriously, we feel the need to wash our faces all the time) but we need a bit of a cool touch to make our faces feel clean whenever we’re outside for more than 20 minutes. As the saying goes, ask and you shall receive. When it comes to cool things, nothing beats snow, so of course, we opted for a little arctic skincare pampering with the NEW Snow Fox Skincare Collection.

Say hello to the 3-step regimen that will keep you cool, and looking fresh-faced during those upcoming hot and humid summer days. The Snow Fox Skincare Collection includes a Soothing Facial Cleansing Mousse, Day & Night Multi Defense Cream, and ArcticBreeze Detox Cooling Mask that will leave skin looking and feeling flawless.

#IGiveASheet About our Planet: Innisfree X Earth Day New York Initiative

What do you give a “sheet” about? With all the problems of our world, it may be easy to remember that we all live on one planet that reacts and adjusts to what we do to it – good and bad. This next sentence bears repeating over and over – we only have one Earth, if we destroy it, we destroy ourselves. This is why we are fully supportive of the Innisfree X Earth Day New York Initiative. We had the pleasure of celebrating the Korean beauty brand’s NEW biodegradable My Real Squeeze Masks and their #IGiveASheet campaign.

As an Earth Day New York 2018 Official Community Partner, the Innisfree flagship will be one of 5 stops on the Earth Day 5K Green Tour, in honor of its new LEED Silver-Certification as a green-friendly location. Everyone is invited to visit the Innisfree’s brand experience booth and their flagship store to learn more about the brand, their special ingredients from Jeju island, their sustainability programs, and enjoy skincare samples and giveaways. You are also invited to (this is something we highly recommend you do) try out their biodegradable My Real Squeeze Sheet Masks and participate in their #lGlVEASHEET Campaign by sharing what you care about this Earth Day (check out our video below).

Watch video!

Made from 100% biodegradable Eucalyptus fibers, Innisfree’s new My Mask Collection is their latest Earth-friendly innovation. With 18 naturally derived ingredients to choose from (including 6 new flavors – broccoli, tomato, ginseng, fig, oatmeal, and cucumber), the collection offers diverse solutions for ever-changing skin concerns. So no matter what your skin is craving, Innisfree has a sheet mask for you, plus they’re only $1.80 each!! Perfectly timed with Earth Month, the launch will be spotlighted by Innisfree’s #lGlVEASHEET Campaign.

Innisfree is very well known for their green initiatives around the globe, their promotion of sustainable living, practice responsible sourcing, and their wide range of nature-derived skincare (we are so in love with their Volcanic Cluster Masks, Overnight Beauty Products, and their Green Tea product range is an absolute favorite with beauty fans).

Doesn’t getting involved in the Innisfree X Earth Day New York Initiative sound like a great way to experience great skincare products and help our planet?

Beauty Product Monthly: beautypress May Beauty Box

Spring is the season of renewal, so what better time than now to replace our old beauty products with new ones. Thanks to beautypress, we got to try out some innovative new beauty products for hair, face and body. Some of these beauty brands we’re already familiar with and others we’re now very happy to know. Journey with us as we get to know the wonderful products in the beautypress May Beauty Box.

beautypress_May_Beauty_Box_www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com

The contents of the beautypress May Beauty Box included full-sizes of It Haircare 12-in-One Amazing Leave-in TreatmentAHAVA Dead Sea Crystal Osmoter, two Eve Milan New York The Lacial MasquesJouviance Glyco Laser 5 Soft Peel Night CreamINNARAH VenoDefense Hydrating Treatment Creme, and the AHAVA DeadSea Plants Firming Body Cream.

It Haircare 12-in-One Amazing Leave-in Treatment

It_Haircare_Leave_In_www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com

Since our hair has been feeling a bit dry lately, thanks to the unpredictable and crazy fluctuations in weather, and because we live for good leave-in conditioners, we dove right into trying the It Haircare 12-in-One Amazing Leave-in Treatment. Not only did it do the unattainable and tamed our frizz, it helped to quickly detangle our curls, left our hair wonderfully hydrated, smelling amazing and left it feeling so soft. This will be a definite hair staple.

AHAVA Dead Sea Crystal Osmoter

Ahava_Dead_Sea_Crystal_Osmoter_www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com

As we mentioned above, the weather has been horrible for out hair……but our skin has had it worse. We were trying out the whole “Apple Cider Vinegar as a toner” hack, and I guess our skin is not a fan because it was incredibly dry. Thankfully the AHAVA Dead Sea Crystal Osmoter was one of the products in the box and it was a lifesaver for hydrating and moisturizing our skin. A little of this intense serum goes a long way and the day after we tried it, our skin felt significantly less dry and tight. We can’t wait to see what the full results of continuous use will be.

Eve Milan New York The Lacial Masques

Eve_Milan_New_York_The_Facial_Masque_www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com

A few days after trying the Ahava product, we tried the Eve Milan New York Moisturizing and Repairing Lacial Masque to get that extra boost of moisture and healing our skin may still need from the extreme dryness. First, we must say, we love the sensuous look of the mask (it’s all lace). Our skin felt quite soft and supple with all traces of dryness completely gone (we’ll be sharing photos via social media). We look forward to trying out the Brightening Masque very soon.

Jouviance Glyco Laser 5 Soft Peel Night Cream

Jouviance_Glyco_Laser_5_Soft_Peel_Night_Cream_www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com

Since we were experiencing very dry skin, we hadn’t tried the Jouviance Glyco Laser 5 Soft Peel Night Cream, but we’re super excited to try it out as we always opt for glycolic facials to get rid of dead skin and stimulate new cells when we can escape to a spa. We wanted to give our skin an in-between break between products, so we can indulge. We can’t wait to peel back the years. Look out for our photos on social media.

INNARAH VenoDefense Hydrating Treatment Creme

Innarah_VenoDefense_Treatment_www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com

We’ve heard about the wonderful effects that skincare products which contain snake venom can have on aging skin, so of course we were excited to try the INNARAH VenoDefense Hydrating Treatment Creme. We saved using this hydrating treatment as our night cream to help fight off the effects of the day. We sometimes experience skin inflammation and redness, but after using the VenoDefense Hydrating Treatment Creme for about three days, we noticed some improvements in both skin issues. Imagine the difference after two or more weeks, we can’t wait!

AHAVA DeadSea Plants Firming Body Cream

Ahava_Dead_Sea_Plants_Firming_Body_Cream_www.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com

Last but not least of the beautypress May Beauty Box products is the AHAVA DeadSea Plants Firming Body Cream. We’re lucky to have minimal cellulite, and we wanted to concentrate on the products for hair and face, so we’re saving trying out the firming body cream for a later date. We’re especially interested in its ability to smooth out skin’s texture, recover lost skin firmness and its Collagen repair.

Unmasking Your Skin’s Potential with Facial Sheet Masks

As the saying goes, “hydration is key” and not just internally, but externally as well. Whether you’re plagued with dry skin, or you’re recovering from a night of partying, it’s important to pamper your skin with a product that will hydrate, detoxify and refine it. Hydrating facial sheet masks give a boost of hydration that goes deep down into your skin, reinforcing your skin’s natural barrier, leaving you completely refreshed, looking plumper, and smoother. We’ve had a few late event nights that have left our skin parched but luckily we’re armed with two sheet masks, BioRepublic Fiber Masks, and MaskerAide Hydrating Facial Sheet Masks. With these two wonderful beauty brands, we’re ready for our #SheetMaskSelfie!

BioRepublic Fiber Masks
