2) Make a hard dough out of it.
3) Keep oil in a pan for heating
4) Make small balls out of the dough and keep aside.
5) After the oil is sufficiently heated drop the balls in oil and fry them on low to medium heat.

Four Season Syn-ake Anti Wrinkle Time Reset Mask Review

Let's see the review of yet another Korean mask that is Four Season Syn-ake Anti Wrinkle Time Reset Mask

Brand claims
The mask helps improve fine wrinkles and return elasticity by giving tension to facial muscle.

Ingredients

Directions for use
Put on the mask for 15 -20 minutes after thorough cleansing. Discard after single use.

My experience
I have used the four Season Series and they all are hydrating and moisturizing. This mask is very hydrating and gives a little stretchy feeling and plumps up the skin a little bit. I don't have any wrinkles but I guess it will hide fine lines if any temporarily. Overall this mask is very handy when we are in a hurry or travelling. Plus they are travel friendly and budget friendly too. The fragrance is as usual subtle and soothing, whiteout being much bothering.


The In
  • Travel friendly packaging 
  • Compact packaging
  • Budget friendly 
  • Intensely mositurizes the skin
  • Hydrates the skin
  • Gives a subtle temporary glow to the face
  • Cures the dry patches 
  • More suitable for use in winters
  • Plumps up the skin
  • Hides fine lines if any temporarily


The Out
  • I didn't find any

Price and Shelf life - $0.85 on Skin18.com and shelf life not mentioned.

Availability - Available here

Overall thoughts
The mask intensely mositurizes and hydrates the skin. It is a travel friendly as well as budget friendly. These masks are hydrating and very easy to use also. Whenever we are in a hurry they come in handy. Plumps up the skin giving a temporary glow.

Repurchase - I like the Mirum Fresh Fruit series more than the Four Season Series.
Recommendation - Yes totally recommended!!!!

Four Season Multi Vita Brightening Active Mask Review, Price

Let see the review of yet another Korean mask. The mask I used is a mask of the Four Season Series and it is Four Season Multi Vita Brightening Active Mask



Brand claims
The mask contains concentrated multi vitamin essence that brightens and vitalizes the skin.

Ingredients


Directions for use
Put on the mask for 15 -20 minutes after thorough cleansing. Discard after single use.

My experience
The mask is similar to earlier masks I have reviewed, lightly scented, opaque essence and runny consistency. This time I squeezed out the essence from mask and applied thick layer to face. After this layer dried up I applied another layer.
The skin is instantly hydrated and mositurized. And since this mask is a whitening mask it gives a temporary instant glow to the face. The essence is runny so you need to be careful about the essence dripping from chin. Overall a relaxing and conventional skincare regime this is. After completely drying I rinsed with cool water and all I was left behind was smooth skin.

The In
  • Travel friendly and budget packaging
  • Compact packaging which takes less space 
  • Hydrates and mosirturizes the skin
  • Gives a subtle temporary instant glow to the face
  • Heals dry and flaky skin patches 
  • More suitable for use in winters.

The Out
  • Need to try again and again to see actual lasting effects

Price and Shelf life - $0.85 on Skin18.com and shelf life not mentioned.

Availability - Available here

Overall thoughts
The mask mositurizes and hydrates the skin sufficiently. It is a great way to treat your skin when you are travelling or don't have time to pamper your skin. The masks show effect when used back to back and I guess you need atleast 2 batches of mask sets. Overall they are worth trying atleast once.

Repurchase - Would love trying another series.

Recommendation - Totally atleast once. Yes for instant glow and mositurization as well as ease of use.

Four Season Red Ginseng White Clean Active Mask Review

Red Ginseng prevents aging, provides anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and immunity improving effects.  Also, cells are invigorated through blood circulation for healthy and smooth skin. Today's review is about another Korean mask which is Four Season Red Ginseng White Clean Active Mask

Brand claims
The whitening functional mask sheet contains concentrated Red Ginseng which replenishes the skin with nutrients, moisture and leaves skin shiny.



Ingredients


Directions for use
Put on the mask for 15 -20 minutes after thorough cleansing. Discard after single use.

My experience
As soon as you open the mask package you are greeted with a strong Ginseng fragrance. The fragrance fades as soon as we put on the mask and is not bothering. As always the mask doesn't fit properly. The essence is opaque in colour with a little runny consistency.

The essence is very sufficient for face as well as hands. The essence as always mositurizes and hydrates the skin intensely. The mask after dabbing the essence I removed it and let the essence dry up. After some time I rinsed the essence and it got washed off easily.

The skin feels soft, smooth and clean. The mask contains Ginseng which has anti aging properties so using this mask over and over will have more effects than just using one mask. The mask gives a subtle glow to the face, temporary though, which makes the skin look a little bit of fair. The mask cures the dry patches on the skin.

The In
  • Travel friendly and compact packaging.
  • Budget friendly 
  • Intensely mositurizes the skin
  • Hydrates the skin
  • Gives a subtle temporary glow to the face
  • Contains Ginseng which has anti aging properties 
  • Cures the dry patches 
  • More suitable for use in winters.


The Out
I didn't find any

Price and Shelf life - $0.85 on Skin18.com and shelf life not mentioned.

Availability - Available here

Overall thoughts
The mask intensely mositurizes and hydrates the skin. The mask gives a subtle temporary glow to the skin. The Ginseng contents of the mask have anti aging properties so using the mask over and over will have more effects.

Repurchase - Yes would love using it again.

Recommendation - Yes totally recommended to use at least once.

Skincare and Haircare Empties #1

Today am writing my first skincare and haircare empties post. I have seen a lot of bloggers writing this post so I thought of giving it a try. I had a tough time emptying these all products since I keep them in the cupboard and eventually forget to use them. So this time I stocked them up in my bathroom storage to I use them. Basically these types of posts give an idea to you as well as people who read this post, whether particular products are worth trying or not.
