Review: WEI Beauty #WEIBeauty #chinesemedicine

(product photos courtesy of www.weibeauty.com)

Wei Beauty started from the love of Traditional Chinese Medicine that Wei Brian has accumulated from years of knowledge since she was a young child. Traditional Chinese Medicine saved her son’s life. She combined the years of knowledge with her knowledge of skincare to create a prestige beauty brand: WEI Beauty. Not only does this brand have a complete line of skincare, but WEI Beauty uses Traditional Chinese Medicine and masks to help focus on specific skin. Pod Masks are more traditional masks to gently yet effectively treat all skin types for a healthy, radiant complexion. Sprout Masks in their innovative tube packaging, are sheet masks that float in the essence of each highlighted grain sprout. Extracts are pressed at the point of germination when plants are the most potent to treat specific skin concerns. Symptom Focused Sheet Masks offer simple skin solutions that highlight the benefits of proprietary herbal blends to provide immediate relief and results for skin concerns that are temporary. I tried out three different products from the WEI Beauty line. Below you will see my review of each product.

Rice Sprout Express Glow Illuminating Mask (SINGLE TUBE) $12.00/Pack of 6 $60.00

 
If your skin is in need of some radiance, then this is the mask for you. A sheet mask that comes from a rice sprout, the essence of the plant is captured as it rises from the seed at the moment of pure power releasing all its protected and stored energy to ultimately bloom and flower. WEI Beauty captures the precise moment of life and presses the essential enzymes, nutrients and vitamins when they are the most dynamic and concentrated. Rice has been used to cleanse and perfect the skin by many generations of Chinese women seeking to achieve a beautiful, immaculate porcelain complexion. This mask floats in a potent, nutrient-rich essence made from Rice at the point of germination. Following the 10 minute treatment, there is a visible reduction in appearance of dark spots and skin is invigorated, bright and glowing. Rich Rice Embryo contains proteins that help skin to retain moisture. Amino acids and flavonoids from Chinese Licorice work to improve skin’s clarity and strengthen its resilience. Vitamin C defends the skin from free radicals, illuminates a dull complexion and works to slow the signs of aging. 

After using this mask, my skin definitely looked brighter and had a glow to it. I cannot say whether or not if it dot rid of a good amount of hyperpigmentation but I do believe with continued use it would. My skin had a nice clarity to it that does come with the use of brightening and illuminating masks. This mask is a great way to help take control of your hyperpigmentation and sun damage, use prior to going tout at night for a beautiful radiant glow to the skin. Apply the mask, wait 10 minutes than massage the leftover gel into the face. Do not rinse it off. It even comes with tweezers to get the mask out of the tube.


Multitask Multi-Mask Collection $20.00/ 3 pods

 
This pack of three masks is a collection of extraordinary masks for skin that is in need of detoxifying, brightening and anti-aging benefits. It is great for travel or use at home. It even comes with a brush for application. The three masks are: Bee Venom Anti-Wrinkle Cream Mask, Brown Sugar Ready Glow Exfoliating Mask and Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask. Luckily these are all masks that are also available separately too. This pack is a great way to try out three masks you might not get to try otherwise. 

The Bee Venom Anti-Wrinkle Cream Mask helps to revitalize, hydrate and plump skin. This rich, moisturizing and plumping mask contains the highest quality Bee Venom Peptides and a proprietary compound of nine traditional Chinese herbs to revitalize, hydrate and plump the skin. It improves the overall elasticity of the skin, Lily, nourishing Chinese Angelica, and anti-aging Lingzhi Mushroom works to diminish the appearance of fine lines. Brown Sugar Ready Glow Exfoliating Mask polishes and brightens the skin. Sugar is often used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to detoxify. It is infused with molasses from brown sugar to hydrate and gently exfoliate the skin for a flawless, radiant complexion. Sugar acts as a natural humectant, drawing moisture to the skin. It also has glycolic acid to help exfoliate the skin. Molasses is a natural anti-oxidant that neutralizes free radical damage that can cause hyperpigmentation. Kakadu Plum is rich in Vitamin C and has renowned brightening properties. The Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask is also an excellent mask. Golden Root, often reserved for royalty, restores youth in the skin to keep it looking young and beautiful. The velvety smooth mud mask deeply cleanses the skin and purges toxins, impurities to minimize the appearance of pores and blemishes to create a flawless complexion. Golden Root counteracts the oxidative causes of cell damage. Pure China Clay absorbs toxins and removes dirt and dead skin cells. Jujube fruit extract has anti-inflammatory properties.

These three masks are all essential for great skin, as they provide nutrients and help task skin to do what is needed for a flawless complexion. My personal favorite is the Brown Sugar Ready Glow Exfoliating Mask. I love anything that exfoliates the skin, leaving it looking pink and glowing. 


Tibetan Chrysanthemum Correcting Eye Treatment Pads $60.00/10 pair

  
Tibetan Chrysanthemum thrives and blooms only in the harsh conditions way up high in the Tibetan mountains. One must climb up very high to harvest its natural beauty. If you have eyes that are tired, puffy and have dark circles, then this is the mask for you. These Correcting Eye Treatment Pads are perfect to help treat the previous symptoms. After one use, your eyes will look rested, refreshed and brighter. These are also used to treat swelling and have been a favorite among Chines women for centuries. Tibetan Chrysanthemum leaves eyes feeling relieved and “depuffed”. These herb soaked, correcting eye pads work in 10 minutes to visibly diminish the appearance of puffiness and dark circles for a more well-rested look. The main flower helps to reduce the appearance of puffiness. Mulberry Leaves help to minimize the appearance of dark circles. Soybean extract is an anti-oxidant that helps protect the delicate eye area from free radical damage. 
 
I love how these pads destroy puffiness. I wake up with puffy eyes sometimes and using these pads just gets rid of them. Dark circles are gone too. These eye pads leave nothing but beautiful eyes in their wake. Use before going out for the night or to start the day. Apply, leave on for about 10 minutes then massage in the remaining liquid gently around the eyes.
