    This sounds awesome! I agree with you on using this during travel, my skin tend to get drier, even though I just travel from Sarawak to Kuala Lumpur LOL If this product has lots to apply, do you think we can use half for today, half for next time? My face is quite small so whatever products I use tend to last longer compare to other people and whatever excess I have, I will end up apply around my neck, chest and hands, haha.

    Will you also make follow-up blog on this product after several uses?

      Oh yes, travel really messes up your skin. I could just do a road trip and still end up with messed up skin at the end of it LOL! I suppose if you were very careful to use a spatula and not contaminate the product, seal it up and store it in the fridge, you could use it 2 days in a row, but I wouldn’t recommend it simply because it’s like a disposable contact lens you know. Once you pop the blister pack, it’s exposed and there’s a risk of contamination. On the upside, you could give your neck, chest and arms a nice treat! :) I’ve been using this for about 2 months and almost finished with the box because I don’t use it very often. The pix were taken a while ago and my thoughts on it remain the same 2 months down the road :)

    Oh my goodness, this is too cute!! I love that there’s a little “mochi” of product that you have to mix in!

      Haha indeed! That is what I think captured my imagination the most :D

    I’ve never really understood the concept of sleeping packs in general. How do they differ from a good, rich moisturizer? And don’t they get all over your pillow? You’re right about the packaging though. That is really cute!

      Sleeping packs are generally found in Korean and Japanese skincare and operate as a mask that you can sleep in. They deliver more potent ingredients like a leave on mask, and usually contain hydrating benefits, but they aren’t as rich as a cream moisturiser which can clog pores if too much is used. Most sleeping packs have a gel texture which makes them more comfortable to use and absorb into skin better, so no, they don’t usually stay wet on the face and won’t mess up your pillow unless you sleep face down :)

    The packaging is so cute!! You’re right, it does look like a contact lens packaging. Too bad about the scent though.. And for a pack of 16 at RM110, it comes down to about RM6 per mochi, which is okay. And its really super convenient for travelling, no more of that drying aeroplane air, gosh.

    PS: Hows the Nanoblur testing going? LOL! :)

      That’s what I thought too, that the price point was pretty decent because it could potentially last you longer than a product in a big tub. Plus if you use this on board a plane, you don’t have to scare your fellow passengers as you would with a sheet mask LOL! :D Haven’t gotten round to testing the Nanoblur yet – been too blur recently with work LOL :D

      I have to hand it to the Koreans and Japanese for coming up with these cute yet functional products! Hopefully you get it in your country soon :)

    I was just combing thru your old postings for this last night as my good pal is going to Korea tomorrow and I have asked her to pack this back for me.. And now you have posted a detailed review on this! Haha! Intend to get 2 boxes to try as I do like their sleeping mask! ;)

      Haha talk about serendipity! :D The scent is much stronger than the sleeping mask though, Anne so I hope it won’t bug you! But the regular sleeping mask is pretty good stuff too!

      Thanks! That’s why I include the ingredient list, so we can all make decisions as we see fit :)

    I don’t know, seems gimmicky to me. Plus, why the alcohol?
    But it could be great for travelling, that’s true.

      LOL Absolutely gimmicky Julia! But I can’t deny the functionality for people on the go :) From what I can tell, a lot of Asian skincare brands aren’t alcohol free with Japanese brands being huge culprits. It’s also why I don’t use a lot of Asian skincare not because I’m sensitive to alcohol but because I don’t find them as moisturising for my skin which could be attributed to the alcohol. But there are also exceptions and these do work, but perhaps not for those who are sensitive to alcohol in skincare :)

    I agree totally with you on this mask. I was taken aback by the scent when i first used it. Wish they would tone it down or make it scent-less?? However, i really like how my skin looks the day after. My skin would be well hydrated and bright. I usually use it neat after my deep cleansing clay mask. Maybe i should try putting their white plus serum before the mask to see if the effect would be better?

      Whew! So I’m not the only one who found it far too perfumed! It would definitely be great if they could totally remove the scent. I didn’t notice immediate brightening, but my skin seems nice the next day :) Definitely try layering products and see if it works better. I like putting a thin layer of oil and it seems to make my skin look better too.

    I have the water sleeping pack and I love it. The scent doesn’t bother me that much. I think it’s cause my body lotion I use is a lot stronger in scent than the face mask, so it doesn’t seem as bad to me.
    I have been wanting to try this for a while. I don’t think it’s available in Canada unless I order it online. But I have so many face cream and sleep masks I have to use up… I think I’ll wait till I’m close to running out because I buy this.

      Did you mean the one in the tub? That’s nice too and it works well doesn’t it? This one’s a lot more perfumed than the Water Sleeping Pack though so it’ll be one to note :)

        Yeah, the sleeping pack in the container. I love that stuff! I put it on right before bed, and my skin just feels amazing.
        I will definitely make note of that! =)

    I am SO glad you posted this!
    Perfect timing gurl!
    Been after these since you last posted about them and recently got a couple to sample before investing in the full 16 pack. Just spent the last couple of nights mesmerized by the cute mochi ball – kind of intimidated, too as I didn’t have a clue what to do with it. Voila! This happens. Muchas appreciatus.

      Haha glad the review was of help! Did you like it? I like how my skin feels after using it but the scent is just far too strong for me especially when I have to keep it on all night!
