Texture & Scent:
This mask is quite wet, so you're really getting your money's worth for this! lol!! For some reason this stung my face a little after the 10 minute mark. This does leave a sticky feel after, but it disappears quickly This have a really mild perfumy scent!


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

This fits my face quite well, except for the mouth part, which is a little 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 is quite moisturizing, it's great to use weekly to boost moisture for your skin! :D

My $0.02:

This is the last mask left to review in this range!! Wheee!! :D

Like the other masks in this range, this did not fail to deliver! Although its stated that this comforts skin, i find that this brightens my face a little too (which is really nice!!)! :D

Here's how i look after using this:

All in all i think this is quite a good mask (although it did stung my face a little), but i'll only repurchase if its on sale as it's kinda expensive!! hehehe!! :D
