Maybe the name “power mask” doesn’t rings a bell for most people. “Mask of Magnaminty” is the name that it is known as in the UK and US.

This mask contains ingredients of adzuki, honey that makes it an ideal mask for pores and keratin care.The mask is not only cooling and fresh, but also, the minty fresh scent gives a very soothing feel.

Adzuki exfoliates and unclogged the pores without being harsh on the skin, leaving the skin smooth, supple and brightened.

Besides face, you can use it at the back, elbow, or even on the heel.

Lip & cheek makeup

This limited edition (limited stock) dual purpose makeup for the cheek and lip is a new release.

Application on the lip adds a faint shade of red to it and the result is natural.
The trick to achieve a florid complexion or enhance the coloring is to use it as a base, prior to the application of cheek makeup or lip gloss.

Reviews are good, with many saying that the result was very natural although they were surprised by the “blood-color like” when they first opened up the cover.
