Apple and Honey Mask

honey_2110575Hi everyone! And welcome to another segment of Light Otaku Living! Since summer is heating up fast, I thought I’d share with you this mask!

I burn really easily in the sun and I heard that this mask would help reduce redness and retain moisture. I would say yes and no, or maybe it just doesn’t work that well for me. This masks works decently and it’s simple enough to make. The ingredients include 1 apple and 2 tablespoons of honey. All you do is mash up the apples, add your honey, mix and apply to the skin.

What I loved… Honey!!  It is literally one of the best ingredients to have in DIY masks

The Texture- The mash of apples plus the super smoothness of the honey is the perfect mix

My face does feel softer, smoother and thoroughly cleansed minutes after the mask is rinsed off. Great for people who have dry skin like me!

The Hassles… Apples are difficult to chop and mash especially if you don’t have a blender or food processor. I would advise you not to attempt unless you have a food processor because it took me a good twenty minutes to manually puree the apples… I also have an aversion to peeling apples (though I really don’t like eating apples with peel)

During the process- Gravity + apple puree on face = disaster. My sink was a mess.

Avoid the eyes!

However, I would say that the apples lightened my dark circles and I looked a few shades more refreshed. I don’t see absolutely glowing skin but since apples have antioxidant and exfoliating capabilities, your face will be absorbing vitamins A, B and C.

This DIY mask would have made three stars if it wasn’t for the massive clean-up mission that followed the application of the mask. Personally I prefer a mask with cooling sensations and glowing skin aftermath. The process of making and applying the mask was an endeavour on its own.

I hope you guys liked this quickie DIY mask review. I was planning on using this mask in Hong Kong because it helps sunburns but I think I might have to find something quicker and easier to use! I hope you guys liked quickie rant and review! Thank you so much for reading!
