Étude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack review






It will come as no surprise that I have been trying out some new skin care. Skin care, and keeping my skin hydrated, is my eternal struggle. As we enter the summer this problem multiplies. My skin does not agree with heat. Air conditioning dries me out, I get heat rashes everywhere, and I am UV sensitive due to a mix of medications and being pale AF so sun worshipping is just not an option; And so I bathe in everything that promises moisturising and reparative properties.

Case in point this Étude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack I found in TK Maxx. Using black tea this gel mask also contains 'moisture capsule bubbles' which you can burst and mix in before applying to your face for what is apparently an extra burst of moisture. It's all neatly packaged up to look like a cup of bubble tea which is a popular drink all over in Asia and makes sense given that this is a Chinese brand (despite their French name)

The ingredients listed are a bit of a muddle but I've managed to pick out that it does contain elements of hyaluronic acid (sodium hyalyronate), sweet almond, Natto Gum (fermented soybean), and of course black tea (camellia sinensis). All known to have moisturising properties. All good to my knowledge. Now would be time for a disclaimer that I am not a scientist or an expert, just someone handy with google and a good enough knowledge to know that it's about how something is used that makes the difference


So... does it work? Initially I was sceptical. When I first applied the gel to my skin it felt sticky to the touch and I wasn't sure whether I was going to wake up even drier than normal. I do not enjoy stickiness so I was underwhelmed. I was pleased to wake up and find that over night my skin had softened; not by a lot but enough to be noticeable to someone who touches themself a lot during the day (easy… nervous habit, not a rude thing). As for the bubbles I can't really tell what difference they make. They seem to be there just to add a novelty factor. I don't mind it because it's fun and you get to squish them all up in to nothing in your hands which is satisfyingly cathartic but ultimately pointless in terms of skin care. 
The major selling point that would make me buy this again (or try one of the other two strawberry and green tea varieties) is the size. It is huge! For 12.99 you get 100g of product but as you can see from the portion below you are only using a fraction of that each time. This beast of a tub is going to last ages! I love when I can say that. 

As mentioned I got the bubble tea sleeping pack from TK Maxx for 12.99 but it is available at Amazon* for 15.70 if you can't find it near you.

  1. ooh this sounds interesting. I've never tried a sleeping mask before. I think I'm going to try it out.

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems. This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take. And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low

Scented Scandals with Filthy Velvet

"Meet me at the tennis courts by The Ramore" It wasn't long into our afternoon together that Karen, one half of Northern Ireland's newest candlemakers  Filthy Velvet , laughed about the dodgy nature of our first meeting. It's not often that I'm asked to meet a stranger down a back street (albeit a very busy one near my favourite Portrush attraction) to then be led through stepped alleys and lanes back to their house! It's all a bit... Naughty. It's a good thing then that being a bit naughty is all par for the course for Karen who spends her days making and marketing her "Scandles". With names such as Filthy Shades Of Grey, Sext Me, Me So Thorny and scents including Leather, Irish Black Stout & Apple Pie these Scandalous Candles have been giving giggles to everyone I've heard talking about them. "Oh I want VPL!" Said no-one ever before their Vanilla, Peach, Lavender creation came into being.   It's fairly bril
