Texture & Scent:
My, you REALLY do get 30ml of product in this mask!! What i usually do is i will squeeze the foil containing the mask then put the mask out so that the excess essence will drip into the foil pack instead of all over the floor, but this mask STILL drips after i did that so you're really getting your money's worth! lol! This mask smells like some kinda perfume (which for the life of me i can't remember!! Grrr...), but the smell disappears quickly!


This mask is individually packed into a foil wrapping like your usual sheet masks. It also comes in a box of 6.

This sheet mask is a little big for my face, hence it doesn't fit very well! Here's how it looks on my face:

I look like an alien this time!! lol!! :D

Time Test:
15-20 minutes is all you need to use this mask! :)

Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at RM7.90 each, and should be available at most Watsons outlets in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines! :)

I usually use my sheet masks after a deep cleansing mask like a clay mask or the aspirin mask to moisturize my face! I also use it on its own sometimes as a treat! :D

Tip: Do store your masks in the fridge before using for an ultra-relaxing treat! :D

My $0.02:
I bought this mask on a whim, since i've heard raves for it and decided "what the heck"! lol!! :D This mask isn't exactly cheap for a house brand, but i'm really impressed by it!! First of all, like i've mentioned above, you really get ALOT of essence with this. I wiped my entire body with the remaining essence and it's still quite moist after that!! Amazing!! I also like how glowy and plump this made my skin felt!!

The only thing i didn't like about this mask is that it leaves your skin feeling rather tacky!! That shouldn't be a problem for those who sleeps in an air conditioned room, but for those who don't (or are going out after this, or just simply do not like the sticky feeling) you may want to rinse your face after using this mask!! :D The stickiness does disappear after 15 minutes or so though! :)

Here's how i look after using this mask:

See how glowy my face is? :D If you squint, you can still see the tacky essence on my skin though!! :D

Overall, methinks this is a great drugstore mask that works beautifully! I will repurchase for sure! :)

  1. LOL on the funny caption, I wonder why I haven't seen this at watsons down here!

  2. It's only available in some countries. :)

    My mum bought these so I might be stealing hers. Haha.

  3. Bird nest! :D But I don't think I'll like the feeling of tackiness from ur experience. -_-"

  4. I hate those tackiness feeling too, so I always rinse my face after using sheet masks! Anyway, this sounds really good, didn't expect such good results from a house brand ;)

  5. Nikki: lol!! i really looked like an alien!! :D

    Do check it out and see if you like it or not!! :D

  6. Lisa: lol... i'm sure your mum don't mind sharing some with you!! hehehe!! :D

  7. Sue: yeah... it's kinda sticky which is not very pleasant!! But the results are so worth it!! haha!! :D

  8. Cyndi: icic!! I don't like that sticky feeling too, but since the weather here is kinda dry, i just leave it on! :D

    Yeah i'm surprised at the quality of this one too! :D

  9. I love this mask very much. Like you, I also use it on my whole body cos there's just so much. I got lucky one time when Watsons was having its anniversary sale or soemthing in January, and I hoarded like 1/2 dozen boxes at RM15 each and already finished 3 boxes.

    And the masks are for my personal use. I use it almost every other day.

  10. wow you look great after using the mask
    but rm 7.90 is expensive.
    nowadays sheet masks can go really cheap.
    guess i wont be getting this. :(
    am eyeing on xinji. hope its good

  11. Vonvon: i think i saw that promo!! Too bad by the time i saw it, it's over already!! RM15 is really a great deal!! It's like you're getting 4 pieces of mask free! :D

    Yes, this mask is really wet!! hahaha!! :D

  12. Yeah, RM7.90 for a house brand is kinda expensive!! :(

    i wanna try out the xinji and beauty diary masks too!! :D

  13. Hehehe. I always love your masked looks :p

  14. lol thank you!! I was thinking of you when i posted that picture!! hahaha!! :D
