The Mask Review
This Petitefee Gold EGF mask is a souvenir from Korea, and I have used it all up! I did second guess about finishing it, but I also did not want to let it go out of date on me. No regrets there.
Made in Korea, this transparent gel mask contains gold flecks as well as Epidermal Growth Factor. The Gold detox and is a skin tone enhancer, while the EGF promotes cell growth, in theory it reduces signs of aging by getting your own cells to grow more.
It does sound good in theory. How does it stack up in reality?
The answer is pretty well actually. I do not know the dose of EGF or how much gold they have in this, but I leave it on for a long time. Longer than the prescribed 40 minutes. Hence I did feel a good improvement on my skin after each use.
However, the effect does not last long, by next day it my skin’s glow would have dulled. If you are using it for a special occasion, do it closer to the time, like the day of event.
My only gripe, is that the transparent mask does not conform to my face very well.. You cannot see the little flecks of gold on the picture, I assure you that they are definitely there.
The good part about this mask that it is not full of fluid, and will dry out. The gel stays moist for a long time. I think the longest I left it on was for two hours, as I was reading

Before you say hang on! I would like to clarify that the cover on the iPad was indeed the cover of the book before the change. Personally, I prefer the one I had, much cleaner. But this second cover is more accurate, and makes me hungrier. Netgalley is a place for ARCs, so not surprising about the change.
This book is for the bakers who has a vegetable garden, or parents who are at a lost on how to promote more fruits and vegetables into their kids diet. I know I struggle, so any tip about increasing fruits and vegetable intake is welcome.
If you are like my husband, someone who hates sweet stuff, then The Harvest Baker is definitely for you. The author Ken includes a lot of savory recipes, and there is something for everyone. I love how the recipes are laid out, and not all are easy to make. At this stage, I think everything is difficult (because one hand is tied to holding a brat). Once things get easier I will definitely attempt the recipes in the book.
Overall, if you are a fan of healthy eating and baking, The Harvest Baker is the one for you.
