Directions:




Texture & Scent:
Like the other masks from this range, this mask is pretty wet fresh out of the pack. However, unlike all the others, this one leaves an unpleasant film on my skin after using :(

This one has a fresh floral scent which I'm ok with.

Packaging:


This mask is individually packed into their respective foil packs and is sold by the piece. I'm glad that the mouth opening is not too wide! :D



Time Test:
15-20 minutes is all you need! :D

Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at RM6.90 each and is available at all The Face Shop outlets.


My $0.02:

I was pretty taken aback by this mask! Seeing how the other masks in this range are lovely, i sorta expected this one to be the same as well.

While it moisturizes ok, is cheap and easily available here, I don't like how it leaves a film on my skin after using it. It takes agesssss before it sinks in (about 2 hours) and even then i couldn't stand it and had to wash my face! :( This also didnt make my skin feel as "clean" as the Tea Tree & Bergamot one although the description states that it "purifies" the skin.

I'm realistic - most dark eye circle products don't work overnight, so I'm a little put off by it claims to "reduce dark circles under the eye". "Reduce dark circles under the eye with frequent use" would be more apt ;)

This is how i look after using this mask:


ps: you likey the new "format"? :D


Needless to say, I won't be purchasing, especially when its sisters are doing a much better job than it is :)
