Obsessed With Strawberry Skincare

As of late I've been so preoccupied with catching up on reviews and giveaways that I haven't done a skin care routine or favorites post in ages!  So I want to talk about a couple of products I've been really loving lately.  And they all just happen to be strawberry based products!

The first (and my absolute favorite) is the Baviphat Toxifying Masque.  Yes you read that right -- TOXIFYING (it says it in Korean on the label).  Haha good ol Koreans and their sometimes retarded English.  I'm sure they meant de-toxifying (or at least I really hope so!).
I was pleasantly suprised with this product.  I bought it because I thought the packaging was cute but I never expected the deliciously awesome mask inside!  It's a soft creamy, almost mousse-y texture and the scent is OMG good.  Now the Asian version of a strawberry smell is completely different from the American version.  If you've ever had Asian strawberry ice cream or candy you know exactly what I mean.  It has a more tart, fresh, and well, ASIAN scent -- unlike the cheap, fake, American version.  Think Pinkberry yogurt mixed with fresh strawberries!


The interesting thing about this masque is that it stays soft upon application.  You would think it would dry up like a typical mud or clay mask but nope -- it stays wet and can be a bit of a mess to take off.  Think of it as a thick thick creamy moisturiser -- and I guess I shouldn't be too surprised since most Asian masks are wet masks.  Anyways love love love this stuff -- I definitely want to try the entire Baviphat fruit line now!


Next is the TimeBalm Skincare Strawberry Nourishing Facial Serum.  This serum contains alpha hydroxy acids to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and is infused with strawberry extract.  Unfortunately, this serum DOES have the cheap smelling strawberry scent.  But the serum itself is wonderful.  It's not too sticky and sinks nicely into the skin.  I use it nightly under a moisturizer for a nice little skin care boost!

Finally -- I'm sure you've all heard of or tried this mask before -- the My Beauty Diary Strawberry Yogurt Mask.  My Beauty Diary masks are cult favorites and with good reason.  They're so affordable and work great!  They offer tons of "flavors" and I've tried a majority of them but the one I always go back to is the Strawberry Yogurt Mask.  It soothes and comforts my skin and leaves it feeling super duper soft.

For some reason, despite being a Taiwanese brand, this mask also sadly has the "cheap" strawberry smell but I love it nonetheless.  I definitely recommend the Strawberry Yogurt mask to those that are interested in trying My Beauty Diary for the first time because I think it's universally loved by "mask enthusiasts".

I used to love stawberry skincare too! but come to think of it, most stawberry skincare added a lot of fragrance, that's a cons for me =/ so I switched to Vitamin c ^^
