Texture & Scent:
This mask is really, really wet!! I wiped my entire body with the used mask and it's still quite moist after that!! Thankfully the essence from the mask is kinda thick though (gel-like), so it doesn't drip! Surprisingly this does not leave a sticky feel behind although it's so thick! This product is perfume free, so it does not have any synthetic fragrance, but it does have the typical "fragrance free" scent though!!

Packaging:


This mask comes in a card board "envelope" thingy housing it!! The mask itself is wrapped in the usual foil pack:


Sorry for the used pack, i forgot to take a photo before using it! :P

And for once, i found a mask that fits my face almost perfectly!!! :D



Time Test:
15 minutes is all you need! :)

Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at RM8.90 each and should be available at most Watsons / Guardian outlets as well as your local supermarkets! :D

Usage:
I can foresee myself using this alot for my weekly moisture boost (especially after using the Aspirin Mask!)! :D


My $0.02:

Normall, i wouldn't even take a look at products from Nivea because i haven't had good experiences with their skin care so far, but I got suckered in by the "No Alcohol" wording on the pack!! :D

Well, 15x more moisture compared to the day cream is a lofty claim indeed! And while i do not think it's THAT moisturizing, i have to say that this one's probably one of the most moisturizing masks i've came across!! :D

Not only is it moisturizing, it brightens pretty well too (though not as significant as the My Beauty Diary Strawberry Yogurt Mask! :D

Here's how i look after using this:


Hello bright plump skin!! :D


This is now officially my holy grail moisturizing mask, along with the Neutrogena Deep Hydrating Mask.

Rant: If Neutrogena had not raised their box price by a freaking RM13.90, i would have stuck to them!! I'd still buy, but since this one is a little cheaper, i would be purchasing this more often then! :)

  11. Are you dumb? Panthenol IS alcohol. Tsk.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Panthenol is alcohol but listed as emollient and a moisturizer.. it is not alcohol denat that will dry out your skin and is mostly avoided by people with dry&sensitive skin..
