Young Skin review and "Me and family post"

Let’s start with the review!
Young Skin Plus Aloe Sheet Mask
Came as freebie on one of my latest purchases, but quite honestly I don’t remember which!!! They are available online, on ebay.
I don’t know this brand and I haven’t searched any reviews about it. It’s Korean and it reads “made in Korea” on the back.
This mask contains Aloe. However the smell is completely different from the My Beauty Diary Aloe mask!!! I can’t describe it exactly but it’s stronger.
Lots of liquid
No plastic comes attached to the mask to prevent parts from getting glued to each other and of course it’s much harder to unfold it!!! Must be very careful. However the sheet is stronger and thicker than the My Beauty Diary ones.
Still folded
Unfolded and it’s big
Instructions in English!!!!! Yay! How helpful! There are two ways to use these according to the instructions: for summer you should keep them in the refrigerator and for winter dip them into hot water 2 to 3 minutes before using (still inside the package of course). I tried the normal temperature one! In need of a mask so just used this one that was close to my skin care goodies in my room. Felt refreshing, but not as refreshing as the My Beauty Diary ones. In the end you still have a lot of liquid to massage the face until it absorbs everything.
Too big for my face. Bigger than My Beauty Diary
When I removed it my face looked a bit red but after absorbing everything it became normal. My skin didn’t feel smooth. After about 15 minutes however my skin started burning a little. So I guess these don’t work for me and after a couple of hours before going to bed my face started to look red again…
Between Young Skin and My Beauty Diary, the second is definitely better for my skin!!!!

Now for the “Me and family Post”.
How was Easter everyone??? Lots of chocolate eggs??
Ours was not bad considering our grandmother got run over by a car a week before!!!!!!!! Will take so much time for her to be able to do what she did before and run all over the place filled with energy! She can hardly move and can’t sleep on the bed, has to spend most of the time sitting down which is terrible and she can’t rest properly. Well at least the Easter lunch went well with a lot of help since grandmother can’t do much. And at least we were all together!
From left to right: middle sister Ipa chan, “unseeable” grandmother, grandfather and mother. (I was taking the pictures) and little sister was away with her father.
Two pictures and couldn’t get grandmother on camera! Well I don’t think she wanted to be seen looking a bit down. Just hope she recovers although the doctors said it will take very long and a few problems will remain.

      I'm sorry to hear about your grandma, I hope she gets better, I get the feeling you'll find yourself researching pain management non stop in the next few weeks!
