Happy Almost-Friday! It’s high time we had an ALL NEW At Home Spa Day, dontcha think? Welp, beautifuls… today is the day we make it happen!! Your wish? Totally my command! Whoo Hoo!
If you know me personally, it should come as no surprise that I love green tea with a passion! I love to drink it, eat it (Green tea kit kats? Yessss!). It’s even in my deodorant! Incidentally, matcha green tea happens to be my favorite flavor of bubble tea, which is why I jumped at the opportunity to review this latest K-Beauty find!
Of course, some of you may first be wondering… WTF is bubble tea? Bubble tea (or Boba Tea) is a Taiwanese iced tea that has a layer of chewy tapioca balls on the bottom. The a tea base is usually mixed with milk, flavored syrups, making bubble tea a fun and delicious treat. Recently, I saw a bubble tea shop here in NYC that had a line going out the door. It’s THAT good, y’all! But how does a tasty, refreshing beverage translate into an overnight pack for your face? Excellent question.
Etude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack ($10.28, Amazon) is an overnight treatment designed to pamper your skin with luxurious moisture. In addition, it improves the skin’s elasticity for younger-looking, perkier skin. With green tea extract and moisture capsule bubbles working their magic to not only protect, but improve skin texture overnight, it’s all good! Here’s the 411 on what’s coming to bed with you:
- Green Tea The pack not only has green tea extract, but green tea oil. This results in hella moisture for the skin. This combo also helps to clear out pores and restore the moisture barrier, protecting the skin.
- Glycerin Excellent for those with dry skin, glycerin is a humectant, meaning that it attracts water. Glycerin also seals in moisture that might otherwise escape, which improves the appearance of your skin.
- Sodium Hyaluronate The secret to youthful skin, sodium hyaluronate secures moisture and creates fullness in your skin.
The one trepidation I had about doing this skin care product had nothing to do with the ingredient list. My concern was if the pack would end up on my pillow and not on m face overnight. I sleep wildly. No, I mean wildly. Have you ever seen Cirque du Soleil? I do routines from their most acrobatic performance in my sleep each night. Because of this, I had to think outside the box to ensure that the product wouldn’t be wasted when it seems so awesome.
The only time I tend to stay put when I’m sleeping is when I’m also drying my hair with Curlformers in the process. This was a good excuse for me to wash my hair a few days early! Because I didn’t want to miss Empire or Underground, I went the short and simple route, throwing my hair into the Curlformers at a break-neck speed.
Opening the pack, I had to laugh at the smell of the product. It smells remarkably like the conditioner that I had just rinsed out my hair, and has a texture similar to it, too!
The conditioner makes my hair look and feel great, so I was confident that the sleep pack would have the same effect to my skin!
Using the handy little spatula that comes with the jar, I scooped out a bit of the gel and 2-3 of the bubble balls onto the palm of my hand.
With the spatula (but mostly my nails), I broke the balls, and mixed the contents of the bubble balls and the pack.
Next, I began to evenly apply the pack onto my skin in a massaging motion onto my face. This step felt heavenly, as I realized that I was carrying a lot more stress in my facial muscles than I’d realized.
Once the pack was thoroughly on my face, it felt great, albeit very VERY shiny.
I had only one thing left to do. No, not finish my hair….
I had to enjoy a cup of tea, of course! With all of this green tea goodness on my face, I wouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to have some in my belly, too! And throw a crisp, chocolate full Milano cookie? What a PERFECT way to end a busy day!
While we are on the subject of tea… Do you want the tea on what happened when I woke up in this morning?
Be sure that you are following me on Instagram, because TONIGHT at 7:30 PM EST, I will be on live giving my final thoughts on the Etude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack! I’ll be pouring the tea on everything that happened after I woke up today, as well as answering any and all questions you may have about the product. Hope to see YOU there!
