Texture & Scent:
This mask is really wet, so you're getting your money's worth of essence in this mask! :D The essence sinks into the skin almost immediately after you massage it in, and it leaves so sticky feel after!

This has a light floral scent which I'm not crazy about, but can live with! :P

Packaging:


This mask is individually packed into their respective foil packs and is sold by the piece. For once, a mask from this brand that doesn't have a huge mouth opening:



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 wasn't really expecting this one to perform because I have disappointed by the two masks i've reviewed in the past two weeks, but this one really surprised me! :D

This mask is really wet fresh out of the pack, and it remains so after the 20 minute mark! Once I removed the mask, my skin felt really moisturized and comfortable and firm! :D

This is how i look after using this mask:



Unfortunately, alcohol is the third ingredient in this mask! I also experienced some mild stinging at the beginning. Usually i'm ok with some stinging, but I'm not sure if i'm willing to risk breakouts by using an alcohol-laden product often. Hence, I won't be repurchasing this mask (which is quite a shame, because I happen to really love the effect it has on my skin!!).
