Green Bean Powder wash off mask

Have you tried making your own face mask?
Recipes can be found everywhere online and since most ingredients are natural, i have heard great reviews of them from those with even the most sensitive skin.

Whilst longtime readers will know i am a really big fan of washoff masks, i am also extremely lazy. Which is the reason why i have never tried making them myself.

But after hearing raving reviews of the masks below…i crumbled and decided to give them a try

Face Wash powders
From left : MungBean [Green bean] , Coix Seeds

I’ve only started using this one so i’ll have to review the other one in another post.

But this facewash powder doesnt just contain green bean powder

Contents: MungBean Powder, Coix Seeds Powder
So its semi premixed i guess?

The other coix seeds face mask powder contains a higher percentage of coix seeds powder and some other stuff, will review in another post.

Directions: Add distilled water to make a paste, can be used as a facewash, face mask and bath soak.
Also makes a good scrub to remove dead skin cells. Can also be mixed with honey or milk to make a mask.

Pros:
- very cheap. About USD$3 for the entire bottle.
- all natural, i assume its generally ok even for sensitive skin
- Can be used daily

Cons
- really smells like green beans XD
- messy. its powder afterall?

EDIT:
if you want to buy it too, i asked miss Sizbelle who told me sasa.com sells it and the brand name is kuan yuan lian. sasa.com ships internationally ^^

I have used it about 5 times so far and my skin really feels smooth after usage. I have tried it both as a facewash and a face mask. Its very gentle yet cleans out my pores well but does not remove the more stubborn blackheads T-T <– might have to keep on using it to find out. Will keep you guys posted.

You can learn more about these masks from the maker’s website [From Taiwan] : http://cucumber.com.tw/

For those of you who think its a little messy and troublesome, there are single packaged powder masks such as the green tea mask from SkinFood [green cup below]. And there is always those VOV washoff masks [NOT powder form!]

Remember how i mentioned i went to the flower market in Victoria Park Causeway Bay last week?
I dont really have photos to share as it was crazy crowded but luckily the husband took a few photos.

In other news, how was everyone’s lunar new year or valentine day’s weekend?
The weather in hong kong took yet another sharp turn and became oddly cold and rainy over the weekend.
Alas for me, i got caught in the rain on Saturday and my cold took another turn for the worse as well [i was already much better but now i am worse than i was before]

I might have to venture to a doctor tomorrow. My immune system is just not adjusting to Hong Kong T-T

Hope you are all doing much better than me
XOXO
