Texture & Scent:
This mask very wet, and remains so until the end of the 30 minute mark! :D I like that this one doesn't leave a sticky feeling behind. However, it stung my face! :(

This one smells like antibiotic syrup again!! Not my favourite scent but thankfully it's quite mild! :P

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 around the mouth part as usual:


Ignore the Nexcare acne patch on my chin! :P

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, or RM59.90 for a box of 10.

Usage:
This is a great firming mask - so i guess i'll use it when the skin of my face feels "saggy"!! lol!! XD

My $0.02:

This is the last MBD mask in my stash!! Hurrah i've used them all!! lol!! :D

Like most of the other masks from this range, this one did perform well!! It brightens my skin and moisturizes well. This also did made my face felt firmer! lol!! :D

However, this one stung my face from the 5th minute onwards until I removed the mask, so it's not the most pleasant experience i've had with a sheet mask!

This is how i look after using this mask:



Check out my reddish face from the stinging! And my skin was super sensitive for a few days after... even gently touching my face hurts! I got tiny bumps all over my face too! :(

This being a yogurt mask makes me anticipate a sourish, maybe sweetish scent to it (much like the Strawberry Yogurt one from this line), but was instead greeted with a sickly sweet scent much like the antibotic syrup i had when i was a child! Ewww! 

So in a nutshell, while i think that this mask performs quite well, but i'm staying very far away from this because it broke me out and made my skin super sensitive! :(
