Actual Product Pic:

Texture & Scent:
This mask is super wet, so be careful when you remove it from the pack to avoid dripping! This feels cooling on the face! After removing the mask, i find that this leaves a kinda sticky film on the skin!

This has a fresh floral scent that is soooo overpowering that my eyes teared up! *sweats*


This mask is individually packed into their respective foil packs and is sold by the piece. Like the other masks from this brand, the mouth part is ridiculously huge:

Time Test:
15-20 minutes!

Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at RM9.90 each and is available at all The Face Shop outlets.

My $0.02:

I stocked up on a few sheet masks from The Face Shop during their sale, so I'll be reviewing them for the next few weeks so stayed tune yeah! :D

This is the first mask i tried from the Cereal range! I have some kind of expectation for the masks from this range because I've heard people rave about these, but honestly I'm just a little disappointed by this particular one! :(

The first thing that hits me is the scent! It's SOOOOOO overpowering that my eyes teared up immediately after i put this on my face! Also, this leaves a sticky film on my skin after removing the mask, which is quite unpleasant! And oh, the mouth part is ridiculously huge too!

On the bright side, this mask does moisturizes ok, and it firms the skin too! :) This is how i look after using this mask:

In a nutshell, I think that this is an ok product (can do without). At that price i'll definitely be sticking to my trusty Neutrogena Deep Hydrating Mask, which makes my face super bouncy and moisturizes and bright and happy after using! Ok I'll shuddap now, I think you get my point already! lol!! :P
