Missha Real Essential Sheet Mask (Ceramide) Review

Uhh, right off the bat. I had such a hard time unfolding the mask. Since it has a few slits around it (I guess so that it would be easier to fit around the face) I had to be careful in opening it so I wouldn’t tear it. To be honest, I don’t even know if you can rip it—I haven’t experienced it yet. It fits well on the skin, but because there is a really generous amount of essence, it was kind of slippery and my hands were soaked in essence by the time I finished putting it on my face.

It smells pretty nice, nothing weird. It actually reminds me of baby wipes, hehe. The Cupro mask is really really moist but it sticks on the face well after it’s placed well. It feels kind of tingly on the face in the beginning. Again it’s probably because this mask also has alcohol.

The steps for this mask are the same as other masks. You unfold, place it on the face, wait 15-20 minutes and then massage the essence into the skin, patting for better absorption.

After the 15-20 minute treatment period, my face felt softer and refreshed. There was enough essence for my face. It absorbs well, because I didn’t have much for my neck. I had to stick my hand into the packet it came in and rub the excess from there onto my neck.

Ceramide is supposed to be for “intense anti-trouble care” (which means anti-acne) and claims to make our delicate skin “calm and soft”. And it did, even now my face feels soft! And it’s been… an hour since I had the mask on.

Also, after putting in the mask—I continued my skincare regimen and the last few steps absorbed so well compared to other nights before using it.

Missha sent this mask for free with my order, but it’s standard. And obviously a small blog like this would not be sponsored. This is my honest opinion and everyone’s skin reacts differently.

This mask should be available at whatever retailers sell this (store locations can be found at the Missha website) and if you live in the US you can purchase them at Misshaus.com. They sell for $2.99 and are available in other different kinds of target treatments—like Collagen for Anti-Aging, Platinum, etc.

It’s been a day later: The blemishes I had on my forehead got smaller, and my face was still really soft. I hope it’s because of the mask—I’m willing to go and order more. 

Here are pictures of the mask in it’s packaging and close up of the sections in both Korean and English… I’m not really comfortable with taking a picture with the mask on (LOL).

That was all I had to say about the mask, this was entirely my opinion and I hope it helps you out in learning more about the mask.

As a note to you about my skin, I’ll add what I put in a previous post:

  • I’m Dominican; I believe our backgrounds play a role on our genetic make up and skin.
  • I have oily, acne prone skin (controlled by Proactiv).
  • I blot excess oils every 3-5 hours… Depending on how shiny my face gets.
  • My skin has large pores and they get clogged pretty easily… (clogged sounds kinda disgusting… -__-;)
  • I get dark spots and acne scars easily.

Thank you for reading!

Ga In – Irreversible English & Spanish Sub

This was the clearest of all my subbed videos. It was the first video on a new channel, Emsunnie. I would have continued, but after receiving a complaint on a different video for F.Cuz’s Midnight Sun– I had given up.

Video: iluvtwilight32123
Lyrics: (see below)

The hangul of this song, I credit, romanization.wordpress.com. The english, I borrowed from kpopsubs1, and translated the actual hangul, compared it to kpopsubs, then interpreted as I saw fit.

I did the best I could with the spanish, without letting strange vocabulary pop in– cause you know… Dominicans may not have the best Spanish in the world or at least that was my case years ago.

Davichi – Time, Please Stop Spanish Sub

This subbed video includes the Hangul, Romanization, English and Spanish Translations. I made this video (it was the first few) on June 5, 2010. The English lyrics were abundant, so I decided to make a Spanish Sub. The video isn’t clear, and I’m sorry about that. It was (and probably still am) a noob at the whole subbing thing.

I’m pretty sure the English lyrics I used, were from kpopsubs video– so I give her the credit for the English. It has been more than a year since then and I don’t know why I didn’t credit those videos.

Missha Thanksgiving Weekend Sale – What I Ordered

Today is the last day for Missha’s Thanksgiving Weekend Sale. I was able to enjoy 40% off of all their products and free shipping for any orders over $40 (I can see a pattern with the 40). Also, while supplies lasted, their Pure Source masks would be added as a free gift (only ONE and RANDOMLY selected). Their signature BB Cream, M Perfect Cover BB Cream was on sale for $8.99—a sales perk I could not take advantage of because no. 23 was out of stock. The final and great perk, was the free gift included with orders totaling $60, $100 and $200.

This post will be picture heavy because I took a snapshot of everything I ordered, just so you could get a description and image of what each product is and does.

The image above is a crop out of my email confirmation, as you can see the order totaled $71.96. But you can also see, there were a lot of free gifts included with my order. It is my first time shopping for Missha products, but I have read a good amount of positive reviews and with a sale like this, I thought, what the heck? The value of the order, without the sale and included free items would have totaled $219.92. I say, I saved a lot of money with this Weekend Sale.

The first product I’ll talk about is the one I was most interested in. The one thing that bothers me about my skin is my hyper-pigmentation– I get dark spots so easily, and it is so hard to get rid of. When I went to Everyday Beauty Supply, they had given me samples of The History of Whoo Whitening Lotion and Whitening Skin Balancer. It worked well, but to get the whole “system” would cost me an arm and a leg. So I am opting to try this out and see if it works.

The next item is the Super Aqua Refreshing Aqua Foam. It does not match with the set mentioned above, but I didn’t want to get the Pure Revolution one. I love refreshing cleansers for the morning to use with my deep cleansing brush. Lets just hope my face doesn’t break out… even though its pretty hard for my to break out with cleanser.

As for M Perfect Cover BB Cream in no. 23 Natural Beige, I just want a BB cream with more coverage than Skin 79’s Triple Solution BB cream, for those days I feel really tired. When I’m tired, my face is dull and I have a lot of redness accompanied with larger pores. I didn’t get it for the sale price of $8.99 but rather the sale price of $17.99 (40% off).

The final product I paid for was the Pure Source Sheet Masks. I only got two because I don’t want to use too many new skin care products. I’ll put up a review– like for all the other products mentioned– in the near future.

Now onto the free gifts. There are only two, it would have been three but the Pure Source Sheet Mask was not included… don’t know why.

The first free gift came with the Time Revolution White Cure Set I. The free gift is the Time Revolution White Cure Blanc Activator. I read that it goes after the toner, and before the other serum (which I did not purchase). I guess I will be using it before the moisturizer.

The next free gift was the M BB Boomer. I received this because my order totaled over $60. I’m looking forward to this, because I wanted a primer for quite a while, and if it does what it says, I might end up using the M Perfect Cover BB Cream more than my Skin 79 BB Cream.

Because I am a first time buyer, and I had just recently made an account on the Missha website, they had given me a “coupon” to use in order to receive the M BB Deluxe Sampler for free. I’m looking forward to using all these BB Creams and the Deep Cleansing Oil. I don’t have trouble removing BB Cream but if the M Perfect Cover BB Cream is thicker than Skin 79, I might need it.

That’s it for what I bought from Missha. Thank you for reading. Hopefully I’ll be able to receive my order soon and be able to review the products with a few weeks of usage (especially the skin care ones).

AA – Because I’m Crazy (미쳐서 그래) Spanish Translation

(Juwon) Tik tik tock tock tik tik tock
Tik tik tock tok tik tik tock
(Aoora) Aunque pase el tiempo, solamente pienso en ti
Estando ebrio, menti diciendo que queria terminar*
En poco tiempo ya estas el los brasos de otro
“Te necesito, te amo”
Esas palabras me vuelven loco
(Woosang) Alejate,
Finjiendo ser fuerte dije que te fueras
(Hoik) Pretendí que esto no era gran cosa,
Dije, “Basta, no nos vamos a ver de nuevo.”
(Hoik) Pretendi que esto no era gran cosa, pretendí estar relajado*
(Woosang) Pero miro hacia atrás y me arrepiento una y otra vez

(Hoik) Los días sin ti, no tienen sentido
Los días sin ti, no puedo vivir
Nadie puede consolarme
(Aoora) Oh mi amor
(Hoik) De nuevo a mi
(Aoora) No quiero estar sin ti

(Kimchi) Aun cuando me emborracho para que usted vea
Aun cuando me descompongo* para que usted vea
Aun cuando este con otra persona
Estoy adolorido, estoy solo, te extraño, sigo pensando en ti

Estoy así porque estoy loco loco loco
Estoy así porque estoy loco loco loco por ti
Porque te odio odio odio
(Aoora) No te vayas mi amor mi amor mi amor
No te quiero dejar ir

(Juwon) Creo que estoy tan loco por ti, loco por ti.
Yo no sabía que te ibas a ir así.
No puedo parar de pensar en ti y no puedo vivir sin ti (no!)
(Aoora) Todos los días, cada día, es muy aburrido para mi
Baby, dejame amarte*
Rompe mi corazon, rompa tu corazon
Vamos hacia hacia hacia hacia hacia el comienzo

(Hoik) Los días sin ti, no tienen sentido
Los días sin ti, no puedo vivir
Nadie puede consolarme
(Aoora) Oh mi amor
(Hoik) De nuevo a mi
(Aoora) No quiero estar sin ti
(Kimchi) Aun cuando me emborracho para que usted vea
Aun cuando me descompongo para que usted vea
Aun cuando este con otra persona
Estoy adolorido, estoy solo, te extraño, sigo pensando en ti

Estoy así porque estoy loco loco loco
Estoy así porque estoy loco loco loco por ti
Porque te odio odio odio
(Aoora) No te vayas mi amor mi amor mi amor
No te quiero dejar ir

(Woosang)
No, aunque yo grite que te quiero borrar
Aunque mi corazón me bloquea
Llamame loco loco
No te puedo dejar ir
De nuevo a ti

(Kimchi) Aun cuando me emborracho para que usted vea
Aun cuando me descompongo para que usted vea
Aun cuando este con otra persona
Estoy adolorido, estoy solo, te extraño, sigo pensando en ti

Estoy así porque estoy loco loco loco
Estoy así porque estoy loco loco loco por ti
Porque te odio odio odio
(Aoora) No te vayas mi amor mi amor mi amor
No te quiero dejar ir

(Kimchi) Estoy así porque estoy loco loco loco
Estoy así porque estoy loco loco loco por ti
Porque te odio odio odio
(Aoora) No te vayas mi amor mi amor mi amor
No te quiero dejar ir

*Terminar – Break Up (Hay muchas formas de decir esto, yo he escuchado “terminar” y decidi poner eso.)

*Relajado – Cool (Yo no sabía que poner para la palabra “cool”. Como que en el sentido de la oración, no era ser chevere, ni chido…)

*Descompongo – Break Down (No sabía como traducer eso.)

* Dejame Amarte – Love You Down (No se como decir eso, pues no le hize caso al “down”.)
