Texture & Scent:
This mask is not as wet as some of the masks out there (like the Garnier Light and Watsons Bird's Nest ones! :D), but its the wettest one among the 3 My Beauty Diary "regular" masks i've tried so far! :D This one doesn't really have a scent to it! :)


This mask is individually packed into a foil wrapping like your usual sheet masks. It also comes in a box of 10 i believe.

And surprisingly, this mask fits my face quite well! :D

Still a bit big, but considered ok already la! haha! :P

Time Test:
20-30 minutes, which is a little longer than what i'd like!

Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at about RM4.60 each depending on seller. I bought mine from beauty_zone33 from There're lots of other sellers there as well!! :)

I use this mask for brightening! :D

My $0.02:

This is yet another mask from my My Beauty Diary masks haul! :D

I like how affordable this mask is, plus it brightens quite well!! It puts a nice glow on my face! hehe!! :D

Unfortunately this one stings my face a little! I also wished that it was more moisturizing! I still feel the need to apply moisturizer after this!

Here's how i look after using this:

Once again i'm not too sure if you can see the effect this has on my face clearly cuz of the lighting! So sorry for that! Ever since i started working i can only do my reviews at night! :( Excuse the slight redness on my cheek - i think the stinging caused it!

Overall i think this is an average mask. I would most probably not repurchase because i believe there are better masks out there, plus i would prefer masks that do not require applying moisturizer after using! :)

  1. Cute girl! that's a funny comment on the mask fitting your face well, I haven't really thought of that but come to think of it..its really nice if it fits !

  2. My face really nearly fits all the masks out there :) (with the exception of the odd Korean mask). Actually if it doesn't fit the nose bridge for you like in the picture, you could make cuts and thus flaps at the nose area so you can adhere the mask down better.

  3. Nikki: ahaha thanks!! Maybe my face is abit small, but most masks don't really fit my face very well... so yeah its always nice to have one that fits nicely!! :D

  4. theotherworldly: what a great idea!! :D thanks for sharing!! I'll try that out someday! hehe!!

    I'll usually just "bunch" them together so that the mask is touching every part of my face! haha! :P

  5. ooh... I still haven't used my cherry blossom one yet. Have you tried Rice? That's really moisturizing, IMO and one of my favorites :)

  6. I love cherry blossom!^^
    Too bad it's not available here, too.. great review,though! ^^
    First time commenting here, do drop by sometimes! ^^

  7. Connie: icic!! I'm gonna try that out next time!! So many masks to try la, too bad i have only one face!! hahaha!! :P

  8. Ceecile: thanks for dropping by! :D you can buy this from online if you wanna try it out! :D

  9. Hey, i bought a pack of masks from watson & it cant cover my nose like the one u showed in the picture, does this means anything?
