Actual Product Pic:

Texture & Scent:
This mask is quite wet, so be careful when you're removing it from the pack to prevent the essence from dripping! :) Like the Original one, this one needs some patting for the essence to sink in fully. It's not as sticky, and the "bouncy" effect is not as pronounced as well! :D

This doesn't really have a scent to it, but i can actually smell the alcohol in it! >.<


This mask comes in a box of 4! Each mask is invidivually packed in their respective foil packs:

This mask fits my face quite well! :D

Time Test:
10 - 15 minutes.

Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at RM39.90 (approx. US$11.08) for a box of 4 masks. It's currently only available at Guardian.

This is perfect for a weekly treat or before an event to give your skin a lovely glow! :D

My $0.02:

I know i said that i won't purchase products with alcohol in it, but i really loved the Original one (and i got suckered in by the SALE word) so i decided to try this out too! :D

Like the original one, this moisturizes quite well (not as well as the former, but still quite well! lol!! XD). It also brightens up my face beautifully! :D

This is how i look after using this:

Sorry for the weird looking expression... i just woke up! :P

Super brightened face!! I really like it!! :D

All in all methinks that this is a really good sheet mask, but would be even better without the alcohol in it! I might repurchase though, because I really liked this! :D

  1. Your skin looks so bright and moisturized! Too bad the mask contains alcohol though.

  2. You glow, girl!! :-D

    I'm afraid of alcohol in skin care products though, so won't be buying.

  3. gio: yeah its really a shame!! It's quite amazing otherwise! :D

  4. milktea: thank you!! Hehehe!! :D

    I'm afraid of it too... so i try to avoid this ingredient as much as i can! :D

  5. kirstyb: you're most welcome! :)
