Sparkle with Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask!

Being an Althea Angels, i am so excited to be their beauty ambassador for all the K-beauty awesomeness that Althea have to offer. Recently, Althea has sent me a sparkling product for review and i am so excited to share my review with all~ But before that, let me refresh your memory about Althea!

In June 2015, Althea was founded to bridge authentic K-beauty to SEAsians. Despite the increasing popularity of K-beauty items in the world, there was not a one-stop shopping destination where every and anyone in the world could enjoy authentic K-beauty products at a reasonable price, just as Korean consumers do in Korea. Althea innovates the cross border distribution channel to connect K-beauty suppliers directly with SEA consumers. Althea offers comprehensive K-beauty selections at the lowest price to our consumers and strives to become the gateway to the world, most favored by K-beauty suppliers.

What i love about shopping on Althea is that they carry a lot of brands and the website is so easy to navigate. Moreover, prices are competitive, products are authentic and delivery is fast (Do you know that there will be free shipping if your purchases are above $29?)! I have always love Althea’s secure packaging so that you are rest assure that products without damage 🙂

I have received the Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask for review which will give my skin the royal treatment! This innovative peel-off mask pack contains 99% 24k real gold to exfoliate dead skin cells, brighten and improve the elasticity of the skin, giving my skin a youthful glow worthy of a princess. It’s also made with moisturizing ingredients that prevent flaky dry skin, so I’ll be left with supple, smooth skin. Ready to go for gold? I’m sure is!

Do you know that gold mask therapy is popular ingredient in aesthetic treatments to improve pore and skin tone? Not only that, the gold molecules helps with anti-aging to lift and firm skin. It also helps to calm skin, improve skin texture and radiance! Likewise, the Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask promises to purify, improve transparency, exfoliate, life, brighten, moisturizing and nourishes the skin!

Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask is suitable for all skin types and it contains real 24k gold to hydrate, nourishes, purifies and exfoliates the skin for a smooth complexion.

Key Ingredients:

24k Gold – purifies the skin and improves circulation

Snail extract – moisturizes and encourages the regeneration of skin cells to lighten scars and smoothen the skin

Seaweed extract – rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants to protect the skin from environmental pollutants

Benefits of the Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask:

  • Reduce signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles and pores
  • Firming, Soothing and Calming of Skin
  • Deeply moisturize skin and helps with renewal of cells
  • Improve skin radiance and skin tone
  • Exfoliation of skin thus promoting skin purification, brightness and reduce black heads

 The Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask comes in a classy black and gold 80ml tub with a protective layer to keep the mask fresh and hygienic. Inside, it contains a plastic spatula to ease application of mask and also keep the mask germs free.

My husband saw the mask and was quite interested to try it out. Since his T-zone is full of black heads, i shall put the Gold Wrapping Mask to good use. Upon opening the mask, you will see a layer of transparent gel on top. Just mix it well with the spatula provided and it is ready to be applied onto the skin. Personally, i find it easier to scoop the mask onto the face and then use the fingers to spread it evenly.

The Gold Wrapping Mask has a thick yet runny consistency (reminds me of milk shake!) and it shimmers! So pretty! Due to the thick consistency, it took about 15-20 mins for the mask to dry before i can peel it off. Will recommend that you apply a thin layer first and then slowly build the layer. Also, try not to apply too much product as it will take forever to dry~ My husband said that there’s a cooling sensation when i applied the mask on and he finds it refreshing! Once the mask is dry and ready to be peeled off, it will feel taut. Before you peel it off, you can test to see if it is dry and just rub the mask on the side and the mask can be peeled off easily (No pain!)

After removing the mask, the black head on my husband’s nose area reduced! In addition, his skin is brighter, smoother and more hydrated! The acne on his cheek area also healed faster than before. The only downside about this mask is that the application is a little troublesome but other than that, it works so well!! Best of all, the mask is really affordable and one tub will go a long way! Try it for yourself today. 🙂

The  Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask retails for $23 on Althea and you can purchase it here

The Floral Blossom smells aromatic and the chamomile scent is distinctive (I like!).  The synergy combination of rose, chamomile and lavender with other ingredients makes the taste wonderful, tasty and refreshing! As the tea tastes light and refreshing, it goes really well with my egg tart to aid digestion and to remove food after-taste. With the right cup of tea, it will compliment the food that you are having and not mask the taste of the food~ Instead, you will bring the taste to a whole new level! 🙂

How to Look for the Best Florist Online?

Sending flowers to your loved ones can be a simple way for you to show how much you love and appreciate them. This can be the reason why flowers are considered to be a usual gift when celebrating important occasions or if you want to make an ordinary day special.

With the demand for flowers, more and more people acquire the service of a reliable florist. Instead of visiting a flower shop to order for flowers, you can simply look for the best for convenience.

4 Factors that Could Help You Find the Florist

When looking for an online florist, you will surely come up with lots of options to choose from. You might feel confused which one to hire because you will not only look at their rates but you also have to check the quality of flowers they have, the selection, services, and also the arrangements. So to help you find the best florist, here are some points that you should consider.

  • If you want the best service from a flower shop then it is necessary that you check the years of experience of the florist. The longer they are in this kind of business, the greater assurance that you will get satisfied with their service.

  • Another thing that you should look for when choosing a florist is the selection of flowers they have. Of course, having different flowers even the rare ones will surely give you an idea that they can make the flower arrangement you want.

  • There are times that you need the flowers to be delivered right away or failed to order the flowers ahead of time. So when looking for a florist, it is best that you check if they offer a same day flower delivery.

  • One important thing that people always consider when looking for an online florist is the cost of the service. They would surely go for a florist that could provide them affordable services and quality flowers and arrangements.

By considering these factors, for sure it would be easier for you to decide which one to hire when looking for the best florist. Having the best florist online is not just about the money that you pay for the service but with the happiness that you can give when surprising your loved ones with a bouquet of flowers. 🙂
