Product Description & Description

Specially formulated with natural green tea extract. It contains Ascorbyl Glucoside which provides skin intensive whitening benefit, revealing a more luminous and radiant looking skin.


Actual Product Pic:


Texture & Scent:
This mask is really wet!! Like what i did with some of the other wetter masks in the past, i wiped my entire body with this one, and still it's quite moist! :D This one does leave a little sticky residue after you remove the mask, but that disappears after awhile. This one has a lovely green tea scent! :D

Packaging:


This mask is individually packed into a foil wrapping like your usual sheet masks.

This sheet mask is a little big for my face, hence it doesn't fit very well! I also find the part above my lips too wide! Here's how it looks on me:



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

Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at RM5.90 each, and should be available at most Guardian outlets.


My $0.02:

After trying out the Watsons one and liking it, i thought i'd give this one a try thinking since both of them are house brands and since both of them costs the same and since they're both the Green Tea variant, they should perform the same as well!

Alas, there is a difference, a huge one at that! While the Watsons one gave me nicely moisturized skin, this one does absolutely zilch for me :( It did not moisturize, and certainly did not deliver the "intensive whitening benefit" claimed!

This is how i look after using this one:


Got whiten meh? :(

Well, as with all my product reviews i always try to look for both the good and the bad in a product. The only thing i can think about why i liked this product is the nice smell! haha! :D And to be fair, it did soften my skin a little.

Overall, this mask is disappointing, so i will not repurchase! At this price, there are definitely better options out there! :)


ps: saw this on the pack:



Wonder if i can go get my money back? XD

  3. so funny, I really can't seem to see a huge difference on all face masks, but one major reason that's a big pro to me is the scent too :)
