Texture & Scent:
This mask isn't as wet as your usual sheet masks, so it doesn't drip! There's a slight sticky feel after you remove this mask, but that disappears quickly. It has a faint fresh floral scent that i kinda like! This is the best smelling one in this line! :D


This mask is individually packed into their respective foil packs and is sold by the piece.

Like its Ginseng brother, this mask fits my face well except for the mouth part, which is quite big!!

Time Test:
15-20 minutes is all you need! :)

Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at RM9.90 each and is available at all The Face Shop outlets. For girls in the US, you can get this at Walgreens at 2 for US$5.

Since this one quite moisturizing, i can foresee myself using after a long week in the dry air-conditioned office! :D

My $0.02:

I personally think that all 5 masks from the Imperial Herbs line is quite good! And this one is no exception! :D

True to its claim, i feel that this one is the most moisturizing out of the 5! After using this, my skin feels really comfortable!

Sadly, this one doesn't brighten the face as much as i'd like it to! It would be nice if it does! :D

This is how i look after using this mask:

Overall i think that this is a quality mask that everyone should at least try out once! :D I will repruchase this one, but not before trying out other masks since there's so many out there! :D

PSSSST: This mask is going for RM5.90 currently at all TFS stores in Malaysia!! This offer is valid until 31st Aug, so go stock up already! :D
