Texture & Scent:
This mask has the right amount of essence in it - it doesn't drip yet it remains sufficiently moist throughout the 20 minute treatment time! :) What I love the most about this mask is that it sinks in super quickly and doesn't leave a sticky feel behind! :D

This one has a similar scent to its Black Bean sister, but is less strong. But still strong enough to make my eyes fly open when i smooth this sheet mask on! lol!


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:

After being let down by the previous few TFS masks i've reviewed, I didn't really have much hope that this one will work for me. But just when I am contemplating chucking the masks from this brand aside for good, this one did surprise me with its goodness! :D

This one moisturizes my skin well and makes it quite soft! The part I loved most about this mask is that it sinks in super quickly with minimal human aid (lol!)! A quick look at the ingredient confirmed my suspicion - this does contain alcohol! Bummer!! :(

I also didn't like how this has quite a strong fragrance to it! It makes my poor nose feel kinda itchy from the insides! lol! And I know i sound like a broken record now, but the mask doesn't fit my face well! :( Last but not least, this doesn't make my face radiant as claimed! :(

This is how i look after using this mask:

In a (Walnut) shell, i think that this is not bad! But at this price, it just gotta be more than just not bad! I will not repurchase because of this! :)
