Texture & Scent:
This mask is dripping wet, so be careful not to spill any essence when you take it out of the pack! This doesn't leave a sticky feel after using! :) The scent of this one is SUPER STRONG!! And the scent lingers on your skin... :P

Packaging:


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

Like the White Tree one, this mask comes in two pieces:



This is how it looks like on my face:



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 US$2.99 each (or get two at US$5!).

Usage:
Since this brightens really well, its perfect to use before an event to make your skin glow! ;)


My $0.02:

I'm back from my CNY "break"!! I sure had the most wonderful time pigging out and meeting up with relatives and friends!! :D :D

Ok back to the review! lol!! I'm always game for brightening masks, so when i saw this mask going for almost 50% off, i HAD to get it! lol!! :D

The moment i put this on, my nose was greeted by an overpowering scent of flowers and powder!! lol!! Seriously, it's been an hour since i took it off my face, and i STILL can smell it on my skin!! UGH!!

That aside, i have to say that this is a pretty good sheet mask!! The thing i love most about it is that it made my skin felt SUPER SOFT after using!! I can't stop touching my face!! haha!! :D Also, it brightens up my skin and moisturizes well too!! :D

Here's how i look after using this:




So in a nutshell, this is a good product, but i wish they didn't put SO MUCH fragrance in there! I won't repurchase because of this!

  11. I will try this one out when TFS is having a sale. Hm, I gather since you're not into strong scents, you are not into perfumes/fragrances? =) Let me know if I am wrong! =P

  12. I do like perfumes, but i don't wear them because i find that they turn rancid on me! Strangely, only i seem to think that way... it smells perfectly fine to the people around me!

    Come to think of it, maybe that's why... my nose can't take it!! hehehe!! :D
