Texture & Scent:
This mask isn't as wet as the other masks in this range. In fact, i find that it dries up a little before the 20 minute mark is over! :( I'm not a fan of Danggui (Angelicae Gigantis Radix), so i'm really glad that this mask doesn't smell like the real thing! haha! It has a mild perfumy scent to it instead! :D

Packaging:


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

Once again, the mouth part is too biggggg:



Other than that, the mask fits my face quite well! :D

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.

Usage:
Since this is quite moisturizing, it's great to use weekly to boost moisture for your skin! :D


My $0.02:

Like the other masks in this range, this one did not disappoint! After using this mask, my skin feels really moisturized and "bouncy" (toing toing feel, in Paris' speak! haha! :D). This is how i look after using this mask:



All in all methinks that this is a great mask to add to your weekly moisture boosting treatment regime! :D Personally i'll put the repurchase of this mask at "maybe", since i feel that it's a little expensive, and also i prefer my masks to give my skin a glow after using as well. But i know that i'll definitely pick this one up again when there's a sale! :D
