Lapcos Sheet Masks

When I celebrated my birthday in March, one of the gifts I received was a sheet mask from Anthropologie. Until then, I didn’t even know that Anthropologie sold sheet masks! The nice thing is that a lot of the ones they sell are natural and from cruelty-free brands. Since I had the 15% off birthday coupon, I decided to head into Anthropologie and pick up another mask or two.

The one I received for a gift was the Leaders 7 Wonders Mask in the Mediterranean Olive Brightening Mask ($6 a mask). I really enjoyed this mask. It was pretty thin and fit my face nicely. It also didn’t slide off all the time, even though it had a good amount of serum. My face felt wonderfully moisturized and a bit brighter. I don’t know if it minimized visible dark spots, but it did even my skin tone a little bit.

I went into Anthropologie with the intention of purchasing more masks by this brand. Possibly either the calming or the moisturizing mask. But then, spotted on the shelf below these masks was a different brand in metallic packaging. The Lapcos sheet mask variety set contains all 7 of their masks as well as an exfoliating pad for $22. Considering the 7 Wonders masks were $6 a piece, I was tempted to try Lapcos.

Lapcos is a Los Angeles based Korean beauty company. I contacted them and they did confirm that they are a cruelty free company. The Variety Mask set contains one of each of the types of sheet masks that Lapcos Makes. This includes:

Pearl- a brightening mask with pear extract that is also meant to minimize dark spots

Milk- a moisturizing mask also meant to exfoliate the skin

Charcoal- a pore care mask that will extract toxins and tighten pores

Honey- a nourishing mask also meant to boot skin elasticity

Aloe- a soothing mask with aloe leaf and cucumber extract

Aqua- a hydrating mask also meant to revitalize skin

Collagen- an anti-wrinkle mask also meant to plump the skin

Milk Feel Exfoliating and Cleansing Pad- two sided pads that cleanses and gently exfoliates the skin

I am so excited to try these masks! I love that the variety pack is so inexpensive, since it allows me to try all of the products without making my wallet cry. Especially since there are multiple masks that have similar effects. I am most excited to try the honey, milk, and aloe masks. I’m also curious about the aqua mask and how it will differ from the milk and aloe masks.

I will try to do an update once I have worked my way through the pads to share my thoughts and feelings, as well as which one ended up being my favorite!

How do you feel about sheet masks? Do you have a favorite?

Most Anticipated Books of 2018- Update

At the end of December, I wrote a post about the 8 books I was most excited about in 2018. I have managed to make my way through half of the books on that list, so I thought I’d do a little update on whether or not they lived up to my expectations.

By the Book.jpg

By The Book- This was the first book on this list that I read. I would say that it almost met my expectations. It wasn’t bad, but looking back, I feel like I wanted a little bit more from it. It didn’t end up being a largely memorable book for me. It was definitely enjoyable, and it wasn’t a bad book by any means. Just with having had high expectations, it wasn’t as good as I wanted.

The Queen of Hearts- This for sure exceeded my expectations! This is one of my favorite books that I’ve read so far this year. It was different and a page turner and I would highly recommend checking it out.

The Wedding Date- This was the next one on my list, and I would say it met my expectations. Even though this was a highly anticipated novel, I didn’t have extremely high expectations for it. I expected it to be a cute modern romance novel, and that’s exactly what it was. It was an enjoyable read for sure.

The Way You Make Me Feel.jpg

The Way You Make Me Feel- Again, I would say this one met my expectations. I think this was my second most anticipated book of 2018 and that gave it some pretty high expectations to meet, so I think that is still high praise for this book. I had read one of Goo’s other novels in February and enjoyed it immensely, so I think I was also comparing it to that one. Either way, it was a wonderful book.

All in all, the books I was looking forward to have been very solid. I have enjoyed each and every one of these books and have yet to be disappointed by any of them. Of the 4 remaining books I was looking forward to, 3 of them are highly anticipated. The Wedding Date is the number 1 book I am looking forward to and I cannot wait to read it.

Have you had books you read any books you were looking forward to? Have you read any of the books that were on my list?
