Review: Bio-essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask

Disclaimer: Product was sent to me for honest review.

Bio-essence has been a familiar brand to me,
ever since it's No.1 selling Bio-essence Face Lifting Cream was launched.
My mum is a hardcore fan :D

They have since launched other series of successful products as well,
such as the Multi-Effect BB Cream, and the Tanaka White series.

I'm honoured to have had the chance to try out Bio-essence's new product from their new range:
Bio-essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask!

This is part of their new Hydra Tri-Action Range,
which incorporates Bio Aqua Crystals to deliver long lasting hydration benefits.
It aims to combat four common skin problems:
- Brightening dull and tired skin,
- Refining enlarged pores,
- Moisturizing dry and rough skin
- Regulating oil and moisture levels

I'm sure everyone has heard of the famous hyaluronic acid, right?
Okay if you haven't:
Hyaluronic acid is a natural glycosaminoglycan, which can also be found in our bodies.
Medical uses of Hyaluronic acid includes treatment for joint disorders, and for burns and ulcers.

There are two types of Hyaluronic acid molecules in the mask,
Power Nano Hyaluronic acid : teeny tiny sized, which ensures fast absorption into the skin,
and regular Hyaluronic acid : which forms a water locking network to secure moisture.

And there is Cranberry Extract .
If you ask me, the cranberry extract is the most hardworking ingredient in this mask.

Other than contributing to the moisturizing effect,
it also improves skin elasticity and suppleness, as well as nourishing the skin.
AND cranberry being cranberry, a powerful anti-oxidant,
skin is also protected against harmful free radicals, UV damage and the environment.

That's why the range is called Hydra Tri-Action: Hydrate, Nourish and Protect.

Now for the product.


I love the product packaging!
So much that I used it for nailspiration, hahah.
Classic Tiffany mint color with silver accents.

#handdrawn with the new nail brush my aunt got for me from Taiwan.

I'm no trained manicurist, but you can view my nailwork via #jtsmani if you'd like. (:

Another point I love about the product is the fragrance, no doubt from the cranberry extract.
It's light and not too overwhelming for my sensitive nose.

The mask feels slightly waxy, but is easy to scoop out.
I just wish it came with a seperate spatula for more hygienic dispensing.

See Bio-essence's Bio Aqua Crystal Technology at work.

Apply a bit of product on your skin.
Massage gently in a circular motion.

See the water droplets form!
At this point, I was like woah. It really works. :o

You don't have to massage it for very long,
and it leaves a very light, non-sticky feel.
Didn't expect that, due to my first feel of the mask.

Pat the skin lightly to ensure absorption.

Though it's a sleeping mask, it can be used as a daily moisturing step too.
You can apply a thin layer for daily use.
Or slather on happily for more intensive hydration while sleeping.

As always, I popped the mask into my fridge for storage.
Applying the cooling mask is one word: shiok.
Like a drink of cold water for my skin.

This is my first time doing a non-nail polish/food review, so please bear with me as a learn. :D

and OPI Haven't the Foggiest for the lines.

Had time to chat with mum and I told her how every Wed I had classes at NUH
She paused for awhile and said: "wah like that, you can tahan ma?"

I paused to think about it.

Work - I've got JCI, licensing audits coming up.
Meeting Minutes to be submitted in 3 days' time
I/C going on no pay leave for 3 months.

School - Exam in 3 weeks,
Logbook to finish and report to start on.

Plus the SACB course now - every Wed till Oct.

All this was running through my mind, and I think my expression betrayed me.
My mum shook her head and called me a 大忙人

I know its only less than a year till graduation, in fact, 5 more months to go.
People keep telling me its short, hang in there, etc.
All I can say is, I'm trying.

I still cant help but think if this is still fighting for my future, or torturing myself.

Missing out on countless family trips,
with ahma feeling disappointed every time I say I cant make it.

Its probably the suckiest feeling.

Sometimes its hard to squeeze out time to spend with bf/bffs too.
Hate the feeling of having to book appointments with them one month in advance.
Luckily they're all quite understanding and sometimes spontaneous. hahah.

Oh wells.

Right now, I'm only looking forward to my Korea Trip after exam. :/
