I’ve been using these My Beauty Diary sheet masks for a couple of weeks now so its time to share my thoughts on them. Picture shows the Skin79 BB Cream. That will come in a later post. Patience grasshopper! 😛
Overall view on My Beauty Diary Masks
The masks are a very good fit on my face. The only bit that might be too big are the eye holes which are HUGE. I feel a bit like a manga character – I almost expect myself to have HUGE limpid eyes. But I don’t so the eye holes are too big. The rest of the face fits like a glove.
There is a plastic sheet folded into the sheet mask which I find odd and waste of resources. No one can tear the mask by unfolding it carefully and its quite tough anyway. Do away with that useless plastic sheet.
The sheet mask was very wet but not dripping which is good. When I had the mask on my face, it did not dribble all over my hair and pillow. Whatever essence there is on the mask takes a very long time to dry too – I had the mask on my face for 1 hour while I watched telly.
Now onto the 3 “flavours” of masks that I had – Red Vine, Mixed Berry and Nano Platinum Colloid. Why are they called “flavours” and not “range” or “scent”?
Red Vine Mask
This was the first My Beauty Diary mask I tried and I was not quite sure what I was expecting. I used the Red Vine Mask because I had illusions of wine floating around my head. I actually thought it was Red WINE mask but instead it smells of a sweetish fruity scent. It strongly resembles the scent of the Passionfruit Gel Cleanser from The Body Shop but less sharp. I wasn’t too perturbed by the fragrance in this one and I had it on for nearly an hour!
The mask is supposed to “whitens, tightens skin and fights against oxidization. It is ideal for all skin types, especially loose and dull skin.” I had nicely hydrated skin that was super cool to the touch and even toned. Most sheet masks do this for me so I’m not especially thrilled. There was no discernable whitening or tightening of skin but you probably have to use it everyday for a few months to see any effect.
