it’s Monday yet again! And if the only thing you’re thankful about it is the
fact that the day is almost over, girl, you need to switch gears and de-stress.
How about some skin pampering? With something unconventional like eye patches,
perhaps? Here’s the complete Luke Skin line and how I find them to be performing on my skin…
Luke Cleansing Nose Strip (PhP189.75) – Each box has 3 strips of
nose strips inside and comes in 3 variants: Mugwort in sky blue, Lemon Tea Tree
in yellow and Charcoal in black.
everyday stress and pollution from commutes (it’s extra hard to book Uber or
Grab on a Monday) have not exactly been kind to my face, especially the centerpiece of it –
my nose. And to focus on cleaning out my pores and make blackheads a thing of
the past, I use nose strips. Luke Cleansing Nose Strip works really well,
although I need to note that it removes a lot sometimes, but few in others. Not
sure if this inconsistency is on the
product or due to my, well, nose. Of course it has a sting when being removed,
but more of a blood rushing into the area kind of sting rather than a burn.
has 3 variants, probably to match every skin type, but the packaging doesn’t
actually tell what is for what. Usually Charcoal is for deep cleansing, Mugwort
(based on my Googling) is for oily/acne prone so this is what I use the most,
and Lemon Tea Tree maybe is for sensitive skin, at least that’s the typical
option. What do you think?
Luke Hydrogel Eye Patch (PhP199.75) – Each box has 5 sets of eye
patches inside and comes in 3 variants: for Eye Puffiness in fuchsia, for Dark
Circles in green and for Wrinkles in red.
I first applied the Luke Hydrogel Eye Patch, I was unsure how I felt about it. The
inner side is soft containing the
Hydrogel but the outer side is dry and
stiff, it’s like a sticker! But once removed and by the second, third and
so on application, I was sold. I don’t have major problems with wrinkles yet
(just 1-2 lines under each eye whenever I smile) but on some days I get some
serious puffiness and sallow-looking dark circles. Whenever that happens, I pop
some patches on for about 30 minutes and afterwards they leave my eye area
brighter, hydrated and plump enough to make the fine lines disappear, albeit
temporarily. These patches are good companions when I’m reading a book or
writing a blog post, little treats to pamper myself.
don’t see much of a difference in the variants in terms of immediate results,
but since my concern is eye puffiness, I tend to reach for that one more.

Luke Essence Mask (PhP59.75) – The price is per sachet and it comes in 5 variants: Aloe
in dark green, Green Tea in light green, Hyaluron in blue, Snail in gold and
Collagen in orange.
have 99 problems and which face mask to use next is a lot of them! Oh what a
nice problem to have, but seriously, I have a big variety of masks in a basket
near my bed. I try to keep them as organized as possible but flicking through
them deciding what I want to use on a given day is super overwhelming. My
point? There must be something really special in this mask to warrant being
off, I like that the mask is very saturated and has a lot of excess essence,
the sheet was swimming in it! The result is always a hydrated face that my
cheeks are almost bouncy. When I have the time or whenever I remember it, I
like to put the mask inside the fridge before use, because for me, masks work
best when cold. Do you agree?
