So for those who have come across ‘kkk’ when talking to a Korean person online might wonder what it means – though it might be obvious to some, it may be less to others!
I for one thought that, because in English ‘kkk’ can mean ‘okay okay okay’ or ‘kay kay kay’, ‘kkk’ might mean the same thing and that this wasn’t a Korean thing they were typing. But it is indeed Korean!
‘Kkk’ is the Korean equivalent of ‘hahaha’ like ‘www’ is for the Japanese. The sound of kkk is one made with your tongue pressed against the roof of your mouth, it’s supposed to sound like a kind of stifled laughter. Obviously this doesn’t mean people actually laugh like this in real life, some do some don’t, it’s just text talk to show laughter. Like ‘haha’ or ‘lol’.
Just a lil’ post on how, obviously, kkk = heeheehee
Yoyo, gonna get straight into it babys because my final exam is next week and I’ve gotta revise EYYY!
But yes this is my review of the Lemon sheet mask (part of the Etude House ABC collection), which claims to tone and clarify your skin.
I used this mask after I’d had a shower and it specifies on the back to use toner on your skin before you apply it – which I did! I use toner by the brand Simple, it’s gentle and well, simple! I never use anything too crazy on my skin – personally the more expensive something is the less it makes me want to purchase it (unless it’s through delivery prices from Korea to England hohoho).
So, the instructions are:
1.) Apply toner to the skin after cleansing
2.) Apply the mask
3.) Remove after 15-20 minutes and lightly massage the remaining solution into your skin
This mask is fabulous! It felt so refreshing after I’d laid it on my face, my skin felt cool and hydrated and once I’d taken it off it definitely felt refreshed!
Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of my skin beforehand, all I can say is that it was pretty normal but dull and tired. Here is a couple of photos after the mask had been removed:
My skin was considerably brighter, it DID feel toned and clarified as well – they’ve got the description right!
Personally I have an oily T-zone so this didn’t really last all day when it came to keeping the balance of my skin as I has some oil production later on naturally but that’s not exactly what it was supposed to do anyway. It lived up to it’s name and I’d definitely use it again!
I’ve got 9 more of these masks to get through so I’ll be reviewing them m’dears, laters! :3
