Texture & Scent:
This mask quite wet, so be careful when you remove this from the foil pack to avoid the essence dripping all over the place! :D This mask gives an almost alcohol-laden-product-like cooling feel to your skin when you put it against your skin. This also doesn't leave a sticky feel behind after you removed the mask!

This smells like lavender scented toilet cleaner!! *slaps forehead*

Packaging:


This mask is individually packed into a foil wrapping like your usual sheet masks. It also comes in a box of 2 or 10!

This mask is a little big for my face:



Time Test:
20-30 minutes, which is a little longer than what i'd like!

Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at about RM3 each depending on seller. You can get this from Guardian too for a high price of RM16.90 for two.

Usage:
I thought this would be great for destressing after a long day out, but since the scent reminds me of the toilet, i think i would use it only when i need a brightening boost prior to an event! :P


My $0.02:

See the word "lavender" and you'll most likely see the words "anti-stess, relaxing, etc" attached to this wonderful scent! Well this mask certainly does relaxes the skin and makes it feel comfortable and soothed, but i don't think the scent relaxed my poor frazzled self! lol!! :D

I'm also pleased that this mask brightens really well! :D

This is how i look after using this mask:



Super brightened skin! Loves! :D

The gripes i have about this mask? Like i mentioned above, it doesn't really smell like a nice, relaxing lavender scent but more of a household cleaner product lavender! lol!! :P Also, this is not easy to get at a reasonable price locally!

Will i repurchase? Maybe! I like what it does to my skin, but not the scent! I'm sure that there are masks out there that works the same but with a nicer scent!! :D
