Texture & Scent:
This mask dripping wet, so you get your money's worth with this one! lol! :D After removing the mask, do pat your face gently to aid absorption of the essence. At this point it'll be tacky and sticky. Do pat until the lotion is fully absorbed, you'll then experience the "bounciness"!! :D This being fragrance free do not have a scent, but i can actually smell the alcohol in it!! :S


This mask comes in a box of 4! Each mask is invidivually packed in their respective foil packs:

This mask fits my face quite well! :D

Time Test:
10 - 15 minutes, but you need another 5 minutes after that to pat the lotion in! :)

Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at RM39.9o (approx. US$11.08) for a box of 4 masks. It's currently only available at Guardian.

This is perfect for a weekly (or bi-weekly) moisture boost, since it's quite moisturizing! :D

My $0.02:

After hearing so many raves about the lotion from this range (which is still can't buy cuz i gotta finish up my current bottle first!!), i gave in and got the mask!! :D

And i'm really happy to report that this DOES live up to its claims of giving "toing toing" skin!! hahaha!! XD

After using this mask, my skin feels really moisturized and comfortable. And after patting the lotion in, you'll get to experience the "bouciness" this gives... it's REALLY ADDICTIVE!! lol!! XD

This is how i look after using this:

I know, i'm so zit-ty. Darn stress and PMS! T_T

This mask doesn't really give a glow to the skin, but it moisturizes like crazy. It's perfect to add to your skin care regime as a weekly or biweekly treat!!

The only gripe i have about this product is that it contains alcoho (cries: WHY?!!!!!!). While i did not experience any adverse effects yet, i'm not sure if i'm willing to risk it (alcohol almost always breaks me out after awhile). So i'll put the repurchase for this product at MAYBE. Hada Labo, if you're reading this, please remove the alcohol and i'll be your most loyal customer ever!! lol!! XD

  1. I'm really tempted to try this out, sounds great! Do you know of any shop that ships it internationally, i.e. Europe? :X Thank you! Love your reviews!

  2. the packaging itself looks very yummy! xD I like the moisturizing part but too bad ada arak... hehe

  3. aiyoh why is everyone raving about this now?! i m so so so so tempted!!!

  4. Junkie: awww thank you!! I don't know of any sites that're selling this internationally, but i can help you get it if you want! :)

  5. Sue: hehehe!! ya man, why must they put alcohol in there!! :(

  6. xin: because it's THAT good!! hehehe!! Faster go try!!! :D

  7. the famous moisturizing lotion do not contain alcohol. How come this one got? Hmm..

  8. Ya!!! That's why i'm so heartbroken!! :(

  9. Thanks Jenn :) I've found out that AdamBeauty carries both the masks and the lotion! They're both sold out though XD but since I'm broke anyway, it's no problem! I'm really excited about getting both the masks and the lotion!

    Btw, I haven't said so on the post you talked about it, but your hair looks really pretty! The color is really nice and suits you!

  10. your skin looks so hydrated, is it like that a long period of time? looks great! but true to what Connie said, no alcohol!!!

  11. Junkie: icic!! That's great!! Hope you'll be able to get them when they're back in stock!! :D

    And thank you!! You're too nice!! :D

  12. Nikki: haha thank you sis!! Must be the mask + long term use of the H20+ hydrating treatment!! :D

    Ya i don't know why must they put alcohol in there!! >.<

  13. alcohol is a necessary additive in skincare. cheap alcohol, which is produced by cracking petroleum, is the real culprit behind negative reactions in cheap products.

  14. hada labo is supposedly alcohol free, fragrance free, colorant free and oil-free? what do you think is the best of the best hydrating/moisturizing mask? is it comparable with your HG neutrogena mask? sorry if you've addressed this, i'm new to your blog ^^

  15. 4n1g3r: well i can't say that alcohol IS necessary in skincare, unless you're talking about alcohol in general (not just the "bad" ones) :)

  16. ♥ vey: Thats supposed to be the case, but i can't say the same for their masks! :(

    Best hydrating mask for me is still the Neutrogena one :) Which is your favourite? :D

  17. I don't have a favorite. Still new to the whole hydrating thing. :D
