This mask contains yogurt & lactic acid bacteria fermented extact to supply moisture & nutrition to tired skin. It aims to provide a moist & smoother skin. Also contains lemon, pomegranate & apple extracts plus adenosine to improve wrinkles.

 

Upon opening, there was an accurate yogurt drink scent; sweet with a tangy sourness, not too strong. Mask is quite thin with a soft texture, well-soaked with thick, clear essence. Fit is BRILLIANT; adhered well without air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were a bit large & nose flap was short. Kept on for about 35 minutes. Essence absorbed fast & left no sticky feeling. Some leftover essence in packet.

 

Thoughts: Love the scent; it is totally a yogurt drink scent & the accuracy of it made me very happy. Skin felt very soft when I woke up & felt hydrated. Pores were minimized & T-zone was not oily. There was a healthy glow to my skin! No skin irritations. Definite repurchase!

Forencos 7 Days Mask Wed - Caviar Moisture Silk Mask:  This intensive moisture care silk mask contains Caviar extract which enhances moisture effect on dry skin, and together with vitamin component, helps to prevent skin damage by penetrating deeply to form a layer of moisture. Main targets are for intensive hydration, soothing, firming & nourishing.

 

Upon opening, there was no fishy scent, it's a blessing it didn't smell like roe (I tried a caviar mask before & that one had an intense scent). This one had a perfumed plant-ish scent. Mask is thin with a soft texture, well-soaked with thick, clear essence. Fit is AMAZING albeit some extra folds which made it all wrinkly. This mask made me look like an angry person; the eye slits had a downward shape which made me look like I was frowning & mouth slit was a bit small. Nose flap covered sufficiently. Kept on for about 30 minutes. Essence didn't absorb well, took a while & left some sticky residue. Some leftover essence in packet, which I applied to neck.

 

Thoughts: Used this mask during the day, before I went out. The sticky residue made my skin look extra oily which I reduced with no sebum powder. I feel that it did provide great hydration to my skin all day as I didn't have to reapply the powder. Pores looked minimize & T-zone was not oily. In my opinion, this isn't a bad mask, it delivered what it claimed to do, but it could be cheaper with a fairly normal packaging. Definitely a marketing strategy, putting famous actor's face on there. The price would have been properly justified if it was a character mask (mask on & you become Song Joong Ki!) & would have been more fun to use. Won't repurchase unless there's a sale.

- An overnight mask that provides soothing moisture without residue as your skin rests.

- Major ingredients: Scutellaria root, walnut extract and Angelica Acutiloba deliver extra nourishment and reinvigorate your skin while you sleep.

- Scent/texture: Scent is light organic scent, in the form of cream, soft & easy to apply lightly.

- How I use it: I apply it last after my moisturizer (clarifying mask - moisturizer - OVM). Left it overnight & wash off in the morning.

- Thoughts: Skin was super soft & moisturized! Seriously the best combo, together with the Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask. My pores were barely visible & was very clean. Skin texture became very smooth & brightened.

- A peel-off mask that removes dead skin cells and impurities for smoother skin.

- Major ingredients: Solomon's Seal (plant), honey & Japanese Honeysuckle for glowing & clear translucent skin.

- Scent/texture: It has a pleasant hanbang + honey scent, thick & sticky texture. Easy glide over skin but need to be fast. Needs quite a lot for full face.

- How I use it: As suggested, I layered the mask onto skin after my emulsion step, not too thickly or thinly. Left it on for about 35 minutes & peel off.

- Thoughts: The experience of it is a luxury itself. Love the scent, not overpowering. The mask was easy to peel off properly & didn't hurt. First impressions are it brightened up my skin & gave a clean feeling to skin. No redness & skin irritations.

This mask contains Coconut extracts (oil, fruit juice & water) to provide intense skin hydration.

 

Upon opening, a pungent coconut oil scent can be detected, very obvious. Mask is thick & had a somewhat rough texture, well-soaked with thick, clear essence. Fit is a bit large with some extra folds, some parts didn't adhere too well to skin. The eye slits had flaps, and was quite large, mouth slit a bit small & made me look sad haha.. nose flap covered well. Initially when I applied mask to my face, there was a burning sensation but it lasted for about 30 seconds only. Kept on for about 35 minutes. Essence absorbed well. Some leftover essence in packet.

 

Thoughts: When I woke up, skin felt very smooth & plump. T-zone was not too greasy, skin felt hydrated. No redness, breakouts or skin irritations. I like the scent because it was an actual coconut scent. Good mask to try!

- This mask contains Shea Butter to help soften, protect & moisturize hands. Proline improves skin texture & aids collagen formation, while Morus Alba Bark Extracts brightens the skin.

- Has a unique dual-layer design: the inner layer is a moisturizing sheet mask & the outer layer the glove, enabling free use of the hands.

- Scent/texture/fit: A subtle plant-ish scent. Texture of the inner layer normal & thin, soaked with essence. Fit is similar to oversized gloves. Kept on till I fell asleep.

- Thoughts: Skin did feel very soft. My nail cuticles were smooth & there was no dryness around the fingers. Outer surface of my hands was hydrated & palms are smoother. A lot of the essence flowed to the arms so skin there was also softer. I don't really prefer the fit of this; it included a sticky tape on the corners of the wrists but it wasn't tight enough to avoid essence from flowing. Probably won't repurchase; I just need to consistently use hand creams for everyday care.

My Beauty Diary Apple Polyphenol Mask

- This mask targets oil control & pore constringing (tightening).

- Scent/texture/fit: Smells like Zappel (carbonated apple drink)! It's made from Tencel material so texture is soft & thin, well-soaked in clear, watery essence. Fit is GREAT, although nose flap is too short. Kept on till I fell asleep.

- Thoughts: Pores were barely visible! T-zone was not oily at all & skin felt hydrated. Will purchase!

This mask contains Lingzhi extract to help firm & improve resilience of saggy skin. The sheet mask itself contains air pockets that contain nutritional essence to provide moisture & nourishment to skin. The essence is created through the Oriental Herb Extracting Process whereby the herbs are grounded, roasted & decocted in the traditional way.

 

Upon opening, there was a subtle herbal scent but there was also a strong perfume scent. Mask is thick & texture is a bit rough, well-soaked in slightly thick, brown-coloured essence. Fit is quite large with a lot of extra folds; covered all areas properly but had some air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were well-shaped for me & nose flap sufficiently covered whole nose. Kept on for about 30 minutes. Essence absorbed well. Some leftover essence in packet.

 

Thoughts: As much as I didn't like the scent, I must say that this mask did help to firm my skin. Pores were barely visible & skin was somehow brightened. T-zone was only slightly greasy. No breakouts or skin irritations. I don't prefer the texture of the mask as it made the experience not enjoyable. Probably won't repurchase this but will try the other variants from the same series.

Containing Ruby powder, this mask aims to soothe & bring relief to tired skin. Also enriched with Hyaluronic Acid & Collagen, it provides a firming effect while preserving elasticity & luster.

 

Upon opening, a VERY STRONG perfumy scent, like cotton soap(?). Definitely not recommended for those who can't take strong scents, even I was overwhelmed. Mask is thick & soaked with clear essence. Mask texture is soft. Fit is GOOD; covered all areas with some air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were well-shaped (had eye flaps too), though nose area slightly wider & flap a bit short. Kept on for about 30 minutes. Essence absorbed well. No leftover essence in packet.

.

Thoughts: Other than the overpowering scent, which lasted for hours, the mask did give me quite good results. Skin was well hydrated & was smooth all day (I used this for my AM masking). Pores were in good condition; not too enlarged & T-zone was not oily. No breakouts or skin irritations. Won't repurchase because I want to try other Pure Smile masks.

This mask is an ultra smooth Silk Skincel sheet mask which reinforces the essence absorption capacity & moisture retention with active ingredients, in this case, Donkey Milk & Purslane Extract. Donkey Milk extract helps to regenerate skin with its protein content, improve skin lifting & elasticity, and target multiple signs of aging. Purslane extract is rich in minerals, Vitamin C & Omega 3 fatty acids to brighten, nourish, revitalize & soothe skin.

 

Upon opening, there was a strong milky + perfumy scent, a bit overpowering for those sensitive to scent. Mask is thin & well-soaked with slightly watery, milky essence. Mask texture is soft. Fit is AMAZING; covered all areas like a second skin & adhered well to skin without air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were quite perfectly-shaped for me (had eye flaps too), though nose flap a bit short. Kept on for about 35 minutes. Essence took some time to absorb. No leftover essence in packet.

 

Thoughts: Pulled off mask & left the essence to absorb. About 10 minutes in, itchy & red patches started to appear all over my face! Worse part was the forehead; looked like I was bitten by many mosquitoes. Itch was uncomfortable so I washed my face with water, mainly to remove the essence, and the redness & itchiness subsided and disappeared. Used my aloe vera mist for soothing after. Won't be in my purchase list!

I received this from Swanicoco as part of the SWANs program in exchange for my honest review.

 

This cream is a natural moisturizing cream that contains Pearl powder, Herbal extracts & essential oil. It's main target is for smoothing, soothing & moisture. This cream helps to smoothen skin texture for a softer velvety surface, protect skin from irritations & care for troubled or sensitive areas, as well as provide deep moisture to repair rough skin.

 

So the basics:

- Major ingredients (in no particular order): Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Extract, Ceramide, Soybean Ferment Extract, Mistletoe Ferment Extract, Poria Cocos (Fungus) Extract, Angelica Dahurica Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, etc.

- Scent: An obvious pearl powder scent (reminds me of old school products like Hazeline Snow or Olay).

- Color/Texture: Thick white-coloured creamy consistency, soft & smooth texture.

- How I use it: Because of its consistency, I use this as a my night cream/moisturizer before I sleep. Last step in my PM routine or 2nd last step if I use a sleeping mask. There is a spatula provided for hygiene purposes & very economical; I need to only use a finger-size amount for the whole face.

 

Thoughts: This cream made me realize that my skin might be secretly dehydrated. Initially, the cream's thickness was a bit too intense for my skin as there was a layer of sheen when I applied it. But after about 5 minutes I noticed that it absorbed really well & my skin felt moisturized. When I woke up, I was surprised to note that my T-zone was not oily at all! Using this cream for about a month now & I can feel that it is able to retain & balance my skin's moisture level. I introduced this cream into my routine around the same time I tried out the Belif Numero 10 Essence, and I think both has made a great impact on minimizing my pores & controlling sebum. However, I would recommend this as a night time use for normal/oily combo skin, and day/night time use for dry skin. Definite purchase in future!

This mask's main ingredients are Gold Obsidian, Aloe Extract & Hyaluronic Acid. The main target of this mask is to moisturize & repair skin.

 

Upon opening, there is a strong mineral scent that you usually detect on black masks. Mask is normal thickness & well-soaked with slightly thick, clear essence. Mask texture is very soft & had gold flecks all over. Fit is GREAT; covered all areas properly & adhered well to skin without air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were slightly smaller for me & nose flap a bit shorter. Kept on for about 40 minutes. Essence absorbed well. No leftover essence in packet.

 

Thoughts: Great mask for hydration! The feel of the black mask definitely helps to retain skin moisture. After I removed the mask, some gold flecks were leftover so I rubbed those into skin. Pores were minimized & flaky skin on my forehead was softer. Cheeks texture were smooth. T-zone was not greasy. No breakouts or skin irritations. Will purchase!

This mask contains mineral moisture from Salicornia Herbacea Water (mineral-rich deep seawater) that has purified enzymes. Also containing Hyaluronic Acid which helps to form a hydrating film onto skin that prevents evaporation of moisture.

 

Upon opening, there was a strong mineral water scent. Mask is thin & well-soaked with slightly thick, clear essence. Mask texture is soft. Fit is AMAZING; covered all areas properly & adhered well to skin without air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were well-shaped for me & nose flap sufficiently covered till end of nose. Kept on for about 35 minutes. Essence absorbed well. No leftover essence in packet.

 

Thoughts: Definitely noticed a change with my pores; they were minimized & smoother. Skin was sort of dehydrated because I fell sick & didn't do my skincare routine for 2 days, so this mask helped to increase the level of hydration of my skin. Skin felt slightly softer. No breakouts or skin irritations. Will purchase if available.

In case you missed it, this is a Naruko mask exclusive to Malaysia (and now available in Singapore, too!). The Bunga Raya (Hibiscus) is our national flower & the polar bears represent the ice-cooling part. This mask aims to provide hydration, even out skin tone & soothe skin.

 

Upon opening, there is a flowery scent that is similar to the Mamonde Hibiscus series. Mask is thin (I ripped a bit of the forehead area again) & well-soaked with clear essence. Mask texture is soft with a cooling feeling (I always put my masks in the fridge before usage so this felt super cooling). Fit is BRILLIANT, as always with Naruko masks; covered all areas properly & adhered well to skin without air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were well-shaped for me & nose flap sufficiently covered till end of nose. Kept on for about 40 minutes. Face was still wet, took a while for essence to absorb. Some leftover essence in packet.

 

Thoughts: Only had about 4 hours of sleep + a simple PM routine & this mask helped to keep my skin hydrated! Pores were minimized & skin had a smooth texture. No redness or breakouts. Didn't notice much brightening, though. This is one of my favourite Naruko masks because of the scent & the cooling feeling, and they work well for my skin. I already have loads in my stash!

I received this from Swanicoco as part of the SWANs program in exchange for my honest review.

 

So the basics:

- Major ingredients (in no particular order): Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Sophora Japonica (Japanese Pagoda tree) Fruit Extract, Pentylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Titanium Dioxide, Adenosine, etc.

- Scent: It has a minty scent, not too strong, a bit sweet smelling.

- Color/Texture: Creamy gel-like substance; easy to spread smoothly & economical, as you only need to apply about a small amount (I use about 2/3 of a thumb size for my whole face).

- How I use it: I use this as a daily sunscreen when I go out during the day, after my moisturizer & before my no sebum powder. It's recommended to apply 30 minutes before going out & reapplied every 3 hours.

 

Thoughts: This sunscreen is sufficient enough for daily protection. It doesn't leave a white cast, which I like, but it leaves a layer of sheen on my skin, which can be deemed as oily or glowy, for which I tone down with my no sebum powder. I like the scent as it's not overpowering & has a plant-ish element. Doesn't clog my pores & provides enough moisture to my skin, blends well with my skin tone & works nicely into my routine. I don't experience any sunburnt or flaky skin when I use this, plus no redness or breakouts. All in all, I would purchase this sunscreen after it's finished.

This mask includes 3 parts: Peeling Gel, Essence & Sheet Mask. This mask's star ingredient is Witch Hazel, which helps to clear & brighten by removing impurities from skin surface. It is recommended for those looking for a simple solution to targeted skincare & requires intensive purification and brightening due to environmental factors.

 

Step 1: Peeling Gel

- To remove dead skin cells & enhance absorption and effect of skincare products.

- The gel was a soft clear gel, a generous amount in a small packet. When applied & rubbed on skin, it will turn into white bits which help to remove dead skin & dirt on skin. Easy to wash off & skin felt smooth after.

 

Step 2: Essence

- A double synergy purifying essence to help increase effect of products before using sheet mask.

- Also a soft clear gel, a generous amount in the packet. Applied to skin & it absorbed quite fast, left a slightly tacky feel but not too bothersome. Skin felt slightly hydrated.

 

Step 3: Sheet Mask

- This is a black charcoal mask with enhanced purifying effect of Witch Hazel to help provide clear skin.

- Mask was dripping with essence, texture is soft, fit is a bit stretchy, eye/mouth/nose slits were wider than usual & nose flap was short. Mask had the usual charcoal mask mineral scent. Kept on for about 35 minutes.

 

Overall thoughts: Skin was very clear in the morning. Some PIH I had seems to be slightly faded. Pores looked cleaner & was not greasy. Skin texture is smoother & skin tone more even. Would love to repurchase this! There are also other variants in this 3-Step series: Hydrating, Brightening, Lifting & Nutrition.

This mask aims to increase moisture content in skin, nourish dehydrated skin & leave skin replenished with water.

 

Upon opening, there was a perfumed aqua scent, not too strong. Mask is normal thickness & well-soaked with clear essence. Mask texture is soft. Fit is AMAZING; covered all areas nicely & adhered well to skin without air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were nicely-shaped for me & nose flap was good enough, though not fully covering the nose. Kept on until I fell asleep (I woke up after a few hours & noticed that this mask didn't fly away, it got stuck to my skin lol). No leftover essence in packet.

 

Thoughts: Skin felt amazingly hydrated! Pores were significantly minimized & T-zone was not oily. Had a healthy glow even though I didn't get enough sleep. No skin irritations or breakouts. Would love to purchase this!

This mask provides an instant cooling & soothing effect. Containing mint leaves, aloe vera, witch hazel & other soothing extracts, this mask helps to deeply repair sun damaged dry rough skin & remove skin problems by reproducing moisturizing flawless translucent skin.

 

Upon opening, there was an ice mint scent, kind of like a mint shampoo. Mask is thin, translucent & well-soaked with essence. Mask texture is very soft. Fit is GOOD but a bit shorter on the sides of the forehead; adhered well to skin without air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were well-shaped & nose flap covered nicely. Kept on for about 40 minutes. Some leftover essence in packet which I applied to face.

 

Thoughts: While using this mask there was a cooling tingling feel which I enjoyed, highly likely because it has mint. Definitely helped to moisturize my skin, feels plump. Pores looked smoother & T-zone was not greasy. I looked well-rested even with 4 hours of sleep. No skin irritations or breakouts. Definite repurchase!

This natural fiber mask is infused with Blue Lotus & White tea, together with other restorative Asian botanicals, to deliver antioxidants & minerals to the skin. It also aims to fight free radicals & improve skin texture. Also contains White Mulberry for brightening & Anise to help with firming and provide healthy complexion.

 

Upon opening, there was a sweet-smelling tea scent, kinda like flower tea. Mask is normal thickness & well-soaked with clear essence. Mask texture is soft & had some texture, reminded me of bandage cloth. Fit is BRILLIANT; covered all areas nicely & adhered well to skin without air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were perfectly-shaped for me but nose flap a bit short. Kept on for about 30 minutes. No leftover essence in packet.

 

Thoughts: hydrated skin & minimized pores! I must say that my skin also brightened up & had a rosy glow. The essence absorbed well & skin texture improved, felt plump & smooth. T-zone was slightly greasy but forehead had no flaky skin. No breakouts or skin irritations. Would love to purchase if possible!

This mask contains Lotus extract, known to have vitalizing effects and help to brighten & purify skin, as well as to soothe skin irritations.

 

Upon opening, there was a pleasant flowery scent. Mask is thin & well-soaked with clear essence. Mask texture is soft. Fit is GREAT; covered all areas nicely & adhered well to skin without air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were well-shaped & nose flap covered well. Kept on for about 35 minutes. No leftover essence in packet.

 

Thoughts: Ooohhh skin brightened up a lot! Pores looked less visible & had a smoother texture. Not much effects on hydration but T-zone was only slightly greasy. No breakouts or skin irritations. I wouldn't mind repurchasing!

This mask is made of 100% natural wood-pulp fiber that allows pores to fully absorb essential nutrients & nourishing ingredients for ultimate hydration. Star ingredients include a blend of Hyaluronic Acid & Peptides (renew), Aloe Vera & Chamomile (hydrate), and Chinese licorice & Vitamin B (detoxify).

 

Upon opening, immediately noticed a pungent scent that reminded me of soap. Mask is thin & super soaked with slightly creamy essence to the point it was dripping. The mask's texture is really soft. Fit is PERFECT; covered all areas nicely & adhered well to skin without any air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were perfectly shaped & nose flap covered well. Kept on for about 30 minutes. No leftover essence in packet. I squeezed the mask & managed to get an ample amount if essence which I applied to my skin.

 

Thoughts: Skin feels VERY hydrated! I could feel a cooling sensation on my skin without it being tacky, and texture was smooth & supple. Pores were minimized & T-zone was not oily at all! No skin irritations or breakouts. I wish I could say I can purchase this, but it's not available in Malaysia.

This mask is infused with Orange Flowers to boost radiance & restore a healthy glow, while the crisp, citrusy scent is meant to stimulate senses. This mask is part of the new Origins Flower Fusion Sheet Mask Series. They have another 5 scents which are Raspberry, Lavender, Violet, Jasmine & Rose.

 

Upon opening, OMG THE SCENT IS AMAZING! Definitely the scent of oranges! Mask is normal thickness & well-soaked with clear essence. The mask seems a bit rough but the texture was soft. Fit is GREAT; covered all areas nicely but didn't adhere too well on the bridge of the nose. The eye/mouth slits were perfectly shaped & nose flap covered well. Kept on for about 30 minutes. No leftover essence in packet.

 

Thoughts: Skin did brightened up! My forehead & cheeks had a healthy glow. However, my T-zone was really greasy. No skin irritations or breakouts. I like the scent the most & might repurchase just for that.

This mask contains strawberry & yogurt extracts to to give a smoother and more even complexion. This mask is the China version (the Taiwan version is the Sweety Strawberry Whitening Mask).

 

I layered the sheet mask onto my face; the scent was more yogurt with a subtle hint of strawberry juice. Mask is thin & well-soaked with clear essence, texture is smooth. Fit is GREAT as always with this brand; covered all areas nicely & adhered very well to skin with no air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were well-shaped but nose flap was a bit short. Kept on for till I fell asleep. A bit of leftover essence in packet.

 

Thoughts: the L'Herboflore mask didn't really give much effects. I woke up to plump skin but slightly oily T-zone. No skin irritations or breakouts, though. 

 

Just a note, L'Herboflore has manufacturers of their masks in both Taiwan & China (such as the case of Hada Labo being manufactured in both Japan & China). I verified with L'Herboflore Malaysia & it seems like the one I have is manufactured in Guang Zhou.  Also, the picture below shows that my lips are also covered by a mask, but it's a different mask, as I was doing double masking. The L'Herboflore mas has a mouth slit.

This character mask is meant for whitening & enhancing skin tone, aiming to transform dull and rough skin into shining and smooth skin. Ingredients include Coconut water/Coconut fruit juice for moisture, as well as Morus Bark, Mulberry Root extract & Niacinamide for revitalizing. The mask itself is made from cellulose fabric that does not contain synthetic fiber, promising a stronger material & better nutrients absorption for the skin.

 

Upon opening, there was a strong perfumed scent. Mask is normal thickness & well-soaked with clear essence. The mask is a bit textured but soft (left some textured marks on the skin). Fit is GREAT; covered all areas nicely & adhered very well to skin with no air bubbles. The print on the mask was on point & correctly placed. The eye/mouth slits were well-shaped but nose flap was slightly large. Kept on for about 30 minutes. A bit of leftover essence in packet which I applied to skin.

 

Thoughts: can't say much for brightening but it was good on the pores & very moisturizing! Pores were minimized & skin wasn't oily at all. I had some flaky skin on my forehead but the mask managed to smooth that out. No breakouts or skin irritations. Might repurchase but not necessarily. 

This mask is part of the Lovemore Gwiyomi Series; it contains minerals from the pristine spring waters of Jeju Island, whereby they are naturally purified through a multi-layer volcanic rock formation, resulting in an extremely low level of impurity. It aims to provide a pearly smooth finish to skin to rejuvenate dull skin, and milk protein extract & trace elements help to enhance skin's elasticity.

 

Upon opening, there was a perfumed mineral-like scent, not too overpowering. Mask is normal thickness & well-soaked in clear essence. The mask has a slightly textured feel. Fit is BRILLIANT; well-shaped & adhered well to skin without any air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were perfectly shaped for me & nose flap covered well. Kept on for about 30 minutes. No leftover essence in packet.

 

Results after waking up: I had some redness during my PM routine, so this mask managed to soothe them away. Skin felt moisturized but the T-zone was really greasy. Other than that I couldn't see any major difference to the pores or any brightening. No breakouts or skin irritations. Don't think I will repurchase.

This mask is a product of Thailand; contains Glycerin, Trehalose, Egg extract, White Fungus extract & Hyaluronic Acid to provide whitening & moisturizing effects to skin.

 

Upon opening, a very strong perfume scent can be detected, almost overpowering. Those sensitive to scent will probably hate this. Mask is normal thickness & well-soaked in clear essence. The texture of the mask is soft. Fit is GREAT; well-shaped & adhered well to skin without any air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were well-shaped & nose flap covered well. Kept on for about 25 minutes. Some leftover essence in packet. I must note down that when I placed the mask on my face, I immediately felt a sharp stinging on my forehead area. When I removed this mask, my forehead had red patches.

 

Results after waking up: skin felt tight, not uncomfortable feeling. Seems weird, though. Skin was oily on the T-zone area but the redness was gone when I woke up. Didn't notice any changes to pores or skin tone, though. Won't purchase this.

This mask contains diamond powder & Glutathione to help nourish & smoothen the skin for a more vibrant, brightened & crystal-clear complexion.

 

Upon opening, there was definitely a sweet-smelling scent associated to honey; pleasant & not too strong. Mask is very thin & fully soaked with clear essence. The texture of the mask is soft & smooth. Fit is PERFECT; fitted my whole face shape on point & adhered very well to skin with no air bubbles, albeit some extra folds. The eye/mouth slits were well-shaped & nose flap covered properly. Kept on for about 30 minutes. No leftover essence in packet.

 

Results after waking up: definite brightening! Helped with lightening my skin tone even more. Skin was soft & moisturized but no major effects on the pores. T-zone was oily, though. I will try other Papa Recipe masks in future, I like the thinness & fit of it.

This mask contains night flowers (evening primroses) that blossoms by the spirit of the moonlight & aims to provide radiance to dry and flaky skin.

 

Upon opening, there was a subtle scent of "kuaci" (dried sunflower seeds) that was interesting! Mask is thick & well-soaked in milky essence. The texture of the mask is slightly rough. Fit is BRILLIANT; well-shaped & adhered well to skin. The eye/mouth slits were well-shaped & nose flap covered well. Kept on for about 30 minutes. No leftover essence in packet.

 

Results after waking up: skin was slightly greasy & no major effects on pores. Skin felt somewhat moisturized but no amazing results for me, sadly. Had sort of a high expectation for Goodal masks hahaha... but YMMV!

This mask contains fermented rose flower extract that aims to provide skin with optimum moisture. Natural fermentation boosts the flowers' effects to absorb easily into skin for a healthy glow.

 

Upon opening, there was a nice scent of rose, not too strong. Mask is normal thickness & well-soaked in creamy essence. The texture of the mask is soft & fit is AMAZING; covered all areas perfectly! The eye/mouth slits were well-shaped & nose flap covered well. Kept on for about 30 minutes. No leftover essence in packet.

 

Results after waking up: ooohhh I was very happy with how moisturized my skin felt & pores were smooth! Slightly greasy on the T-zone but not too bad. Skin was plump & soft to the touch. No breakouts or irritations detected. I don't prefer rose scents coz some are just too strong & make my nose itch, which is why I didn't really bother to use this, but this was a great mask. Their masks have not disappointed me yet so I might try more soon. Will probably repurchase this one too if I feel like it.

This mask contains Seawater & Hyaluronic Acid to provide moisture to the skin, as well as Amino Acids & Adenosine for wrinkle care. It is recommended for dry & dull skin. The metal sheet claims to be different than normal sheet; it doesn't tear easily, compactly perfect adherence & no evaporation for optimum moisturization.

 

Upon opening, the essence was unscented. Mask is normal & well-soaked with clear, watery essence. The texture of the mask is slightly rough, outer layer is metallic & inner layer is cotton. Fit is surprisingly good; covered all areas well, but I can't say it adhered that nicely to my face shape as there were a lot of folds & didn't settle well on the nose of the bridge. The eye slits were just nice, mouth slit a bit small & nose flap covered well. Kept on for about 30 minutes.

 

Results after waking up: skin was very moisturized! No oiliness on T-zone & pores were minimized! Skin was soft & plump & no redness/skin irritations ensued. It didn't dry too fast which I like, but the adherence was not as good as it claimed. Effects are good, though, so I might repurchase if I need moisturizing masks.

The jar I owned is the mini 15ml one. This mask is formulated without parabens, sulfates & phthalates, features the concentrated citrus blend fueled by Fresh's proprietary vitamin fruit complex which is a combination of vitamins C, E & B5, lemon & orange fruit extracts & revitalizing minerals to provide healthy glowing skin.

 

How I use it: I can get about 6-7 uses from this jar coz I don't like layering it on too thickly. Upon opening, there is citrus scent which smells amazing! It has a thick gel-like texture with citrus bits which I apply to my wet face right after cleansing. I use a spatula so that I can control the amount I use. I layer it as evenly as I can & wait for about 15-20 minutes until it's dried up. Because it's a bit hard to wash off as it sticks too well to the skin, I use a cotton pad to help with rinsing off the stickiness & fruit bits.

 

Thoughts: My face does appear to be instantly brightened after every use! There is a healthy clean face & glowing effect which I really like. I also don't experience any redness or breakouts after using it. The mask is a bit hard to wash off if you don't use a cotton pad or cleansing sponge. It delivers what it's meant to do. The pricetag for the bigger jar is a bit hefty for me but I will consider getting it because I really like it.

This mask contains extract of specially hand-picked French Lavender that has a fragrance to soothe emotions as well as effectively purify & balance the oil of skin and soothe skin discomfort. The Lavender Essential oil helps to reduce anxiety & emotional stress, improves sleep, restores skin complexion & reduces acne. In addition to Sodium Hyaluronate, Chamomile Extract & Proline, it moisturizes & repairs skin, improve roughness of skin & smoothen wrinkles.

 

Upon opening, there was a subtle herb lavender scent instead of the perfumy lavender scent that I expected, not overpowering at all & I really liked it! It did help me to fall asleep easily & calmed my nerves (I only had 3 hours to sleep & the scent helped to maximize my resting time). Mask is thin & well-soaked with clear, watery essence. Fit is AMAZING; covered all areas perfectly & adhered well to my face shape without any air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were just nice & nose flap covered well. Kept on until I fell asleep.

 

Results when waking up: definitely moisturized my skin! With the lack of rest, this mask managed to give my skin the 'well-rested' glow! Pores were smooth & T-zone was not greasy at all. Skin felt hydrated & plump, no puffiness. No redness, breakouts or skin irritations. A confirmed repurchase!

This mask contains white flower complex that claims to have brightening effects on dull skin & helps to improve skin tone. White flower complex includes Madonna Lily (retain moisture & facilitate blood circulation), Edelweiss & Lily of the Valley (both provide skin radiance). The essence also contains Mizon’s "vital essence", a formula made of Allantoin (recover skin condition), Trehalose (natural moisturizing ingredient), Hyaluronic Acid (for ultra moisturizing) & Sc-glucan (for soothing & revitalizing).

 

Upon opening, there was a strong herbal scent that was quite overpowering (smells a lot like when you enter a herbal shop). Mask is normal thickness, soaked very well in clear thick essence. Fit is BRILLIANT; mask is soft & textured. It covered my whole face nicely & adhered well to face shape without any air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were smaller than usual & nose flap covered well. Kept it on for about 25 minutes; the scent was too strong.

 

Results when waking up: minimized pores & definitely brightened up skin! My skin texture improved too; seems like it was hydrated really well. No redness or breakouts. T-zone was not greasy & there was a glowing effect. I've gotten great results from Mizon masks so this one didn't disappoint! The only drawback about this one for me was the scent: the herbal scent was too overpowering. Not sure if I will repurchase.

This Numero 10 essence is a hydrating essence meant to use after cleansing (immediately after towel drying), in order to properly retain the skin's moisture; as moisture evaporates within 10 seconds after cleansing. Containing the herb Rose of Jericho, it's target is to lock up moisture & increase skin hydration level within 10 seconds, and even boost the effects of the next skincare product in your routine. Also, there is no addition of mineral oils, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, synthetic preservatives or animal origin ingredients in this essence.

 

Used it everyday for about 2 weeks right after my AM & PM cleansing as per instructions. I was able to stretch this essence out for a long time as I only needed a small amount for the whole face. Surprisingly economical!

 

Thoughts: I truly 'belif' (harharhar~) this product did what it claims to do! After using it for a week I realized that my skin was secretly dehydrated; the reason why I say so is because my pores were SIGNIFICANTLY smaller & tighter after implementing this essence into my routine. It managed to minimize my pores faster than other pore care products I've been using. I also noticed that my T-zone area (where my pores are the most obvious) had a smoother texture and was less greasy throughout the day & after waking up. After this essence finished, I noticed that my pores became slightly more obvious again & also oilier. Definite repurchase!

As always, the packaging is too beautiful! This mask is part of the L'Herboflore Garden of Venus Series. It contains Yoshino Cherry Blossom extract that provides skin-softening & skin-brightening effects & helps to refine, nourish and moisturize the skin. With addition of Trehalose, Hyaluronic Acid & Aloe Vera, it also helps to provide long-lasting hydration & skin soothing effects.

 

Upon opening, there was a sweet, flowery scent that was pleasant & not overpowering. Mask is thin & soaked well with clear, watery essence. Fit is GREAT; covered all areas nicely & adhered well to my face shape with some air bubbles. The eye/mouth slits were just nice & nose flap covered well. Kept on for about 30 minutes.

 

Results when waking up: noticed a definite brightening! Skin tone was lighter & sunburnt patches almost gone! Skin felt hydrated on certain areas but T-zone was slightly greasy. No breakouts or skin irritations. Pores were also minimized & had a smoother texture. Already entered this mask on my purchase list!

This mask is from the L'Herboflore Aegean Sea Series; it contains Black Pearl Extract, rich in amino acids & trace elements, which can help to alleviate skin dullness as well as provide the skin with luminosity. With the mixture of deep sea water, MDI Complex & γ-PGA hydrate, this mask also aims to firm & keep skin looking youthful.

 

Upon opening, I could smell a mineral water-like plus stronger perfume scent, can't really confirm if this is a black pearl scent or not. Mask is thin & soaked well with clear, watery essence. Fit is AMAZING; covered all areas nicely & adhered very well to my face shape without any air bubbles, but I managed to rip this mask! I'm too violent haha.. it did seem rather flimsy compared to the Deep Sea Balancing one. The eyes & mouth slits were nicely shaped & nose flap slightly short. Kept on for about 30 minutes.

 

Results when waking up: more even skin tone! Pores also looked slightly firmer than yesterday. Skin was not oily at all; felt plump & hydrated. Definitely brightened up my face. No breakouts or skin irritations. Putting this in the list of future purchases!

This mask is part of the L'Herboflore 3D Mask series. This mask contains Tranexamic Acid & French Truffle extract that penetrates deeply into skin to provide a smoother complexion & refine dull skin. With the addition of Hyaluronic Acid, Silver Birch extract & Collagen, it helps to form a barrier to the skin for nourishing, revitalizing & moisturizing.

 

Upon opening, a plant-ish scent can be detected, not too strong. Mask is normal thickness, 3D type & soaked well with clear, watery essence. It also has ear pieces that you hook onto the ears & extra length to partially cover the neck. Fit is GREAT; covered all areas nicely with extra folds but some air bubbles did appear. The eyes/mouth/nose slits were perfectly shaped. Applied leftover essence on mask while wearing it. Kept on for about 30 minutes; halfway through I did unhook the ear pieces because it felt uncomfortable.

 

Results when waking up: No amazing effects with this one. This is my first 3D mask; skin felt somewhat moisturized but pores became more obvious! T-zone was not greasy at all, though, but not much brightening or whitening effect. No breakouts or skin irritations. Don't think I will purchase this.

This mask is part of the L'Herboflore Garden of Venus Series. It contains Moon Orchid extract that helps to provide a brightening, whitening & soothing effect to the skin. Moon Orchid is an internationally renowned orchid grown in Taiwan; an elegant, colourful flower which is the most precious species among tropical orchids, best-known as “the Queen of Orchids”. With addition of Trehalose, Hyaluronic Acid & Aloe Vera, this mask provides long-lasting hydration to the skin.

 

Upon opening, I could smell a flowery scent that was slightly pungent. Mask is thin & soaked well with clear, watery essence. Fit is GREAT; covered all areas nicely but forehead was slightly shorter. It adhered very well to my face shape without any air bubbles. The eye slits were slightly larger, mouth slit just nice but nose flap was a bit longer on this one. Kept on until I fell asleep.

 

Results when waking up: glowing & dewy skin! Felt very hydrated & T-zone was not too oily. It did help to brighten up my skin as well! Also, skin tone seems more even now. No breakouts or skin irritations. I do feel like the scent might be too overpowering for some. Would definitely purchase this in future!

This mask is part of the L'Herboflore Aegean Sea Series. It contains Red Algae Repairing Essence to effectively balance skin condition & regulates the skin to enhance moisture and smoothness. Also contains white willow extract to help soften skin cells & refine pores, as well as balance the oil & water levels of skin, together with deep ocean water that is rich in minerals that activates & soothes.

 

Upon opening, I could smell a mineral water-like scent that was not overpowering. Mask is thin & soaked well with clear, watery essence. Fit is AMAZING; covered all areas nicely & adhered very well to my face shape without any air bubbles. The eye slits were slightly larger, mouth slit just nice & nose flap covered well. Note: L'Herboflore masks have parts you can tear (for chin & outer cheeks area) to overlap the mask so that it properly covers your skin. Kept on for about 30 minutes.

 

Results when waking up: most noticeable & my ultimate favourite effect: BARELY VISIBLE PORES! Such firmness, I wish they could stay that way forever! Skin also felt very moisturized & T-zone was non-greasy, which I like because it means my skin is well-hydrated. No breakouts or skin irritations. I love the scent; reminded me of the sea. I've tried this mask several times before so I would definitely repurchase again!

This mask contains grapefruit juice extract to help increase skin moisture & carbonated water to provide a cooling & soothing feel.

 

Upon opening, I could smell a subtle grapefruit scent (like bitter citrus?) that was not overpowering. Mask is normal thickness but wasn't soaked well with the clear essence (some areas felt a bit dry), so I applied the leftover essence in the packet onto the mask while wearing it (felt some slight tingling due to the carbonated water, methinks). Fit isn't among the best but it adhered well to my face shape without any air bubbles. It did manage to cover the important areas for me like the forehead & cheeks. Eyes/mouth holes were decent although kind of crooked & nose flap covered well. Kept on for about 30 minutes.

 

Results when waking up: skin still had a cool feeling & pores were minimized! However, T-zone was oily & some parts of the forehead felt dry. I will give plus points to this mask because it did help to brighten up my complexion! No breakouts or skin irritations. Wouldn't mind purchasing!

This mask contains Olives aiming to keep dry, rough skin smooth & hydrated. Description on packet mentions "How Frodo the rich city dog protects his skin from dryness & keeps it hydrated!"

 

Upon opening, a strong flowery scent can be detected; not too sure if olives should smell flowery (the olive body cream I have had a more subtle scent) but it was not too overpowering. Mask is normal thickness with the Frodo face printed on it, soaked well in clear, slightly thick essence. Fit is GREAT; adhered well to face shape. The mask is quite large & covers whole face, even overlaps to hairline & half of the ears. In general, I don't mind too large masks as long as they cover the face well. Eyes/mouth holes had flaps so the whole face is covered; nose flap a bit short. Kept on till I fell asleep.

 

Results when waking up: greatly moisturized skin! I was sleeping in an airconditioned room so when I woke up this mask helped to keep my skin hydrated; T-zone was not greasy & skin felt plump. Helped to calm some redness from water activities & flaky skin on forehead were smoother. Pores were minimized as well. Will repurchase!

Love the packaging! This mask is divided into two parts: essence & sheet mask. The essence, which is in the bear's ear, contains Cleomilk (inspired by Cleopatra’s beauty secret milk bath) which is a plant-based moisturizer made from rich sesame oil, black seed oil & aloe vera which hydrates and soothes dehydrated skin, renewing the skin's protective barrier & maintains moisture level.

 

To mix the essence & mask, we basically need to fold the ear part until it bursts into the sheet mask section. It was quite hard to press & I was anxiously doing it because I was scared the packet might burst open! After mixing, upon opening the body part of the packet, a sweet watery scent can be detected; wasn't too perfumy for me, not too overpowering. Mask is thin & soft, really soaked in clear slightly thick essence. Fit is good except for the nose bridge part; it just wouldn't stick to the skin 😂😂😂 Eyes/mouth holes nicely shaped & nose flap the right length. Kept on for about 40 minutes. Had a somewhat sticky after feel.

 

Results when waking up: I must say that my pores were really minimized! Pores seem to get better when I use a hydrating/moisturizing mask. However, T-zone was slightly greasy & cheeks area felt slightly tight. No breakouts or skin irritations, though, and it helped to calm down some sunburn redness. I wouldn't mind repurchasing again!

This mask contains natural aloe vera extract which possesses rare amino acids, proteins and vitamins to provide the skin with abundant moisture & promote skin metabolism as well as nourish the skin with nutrients. Vitamin E is an essential element that brightens & whitens the skin, providing a lighter, smoother & brighter complexion.

 

Upon opening, a mild aloe vera scent can be detected. Subtle, not overpowering. Mask is thin, well-soaked in clear essence, no leftover essence in packet. Fit is GREAT; adhered nicely to my face shape without any air bubbles. Eyes/mouth holes nicely shaped, nose flap covered nicely as well. Kept on till I fell asleep.

 

Results when waking up: super moisturized skin! Woke up to skin that was non-greasy, felt plump & smooth. Pores were minimized & no skin irritations/breakouts. Some dry flaky skin I had due to water activities were gone & also calmed down my skin redness. Will definitely repurchase this!

This mask contains essence from Mexican cactus that forms a protective barrier on skin to preserve natural skin moisture, helping skin stay supple & youthful. Also helps to increase skin's hydration level to soothe & moisturize.

 

Upon opening, a flowery plant-ish scent can be detected (scent is familliar, similar to the Innisfree Cactus Hydrogel Mask I've tried before). Mask is thin, well-soaked in clear essence. Fit is GREAT; adhered nicely to my face shape without many air bubble, although with extra folds on the lower part of the face. Eyes/mouth holes nicely shaped, though nose flap slightly short. Kept on till I fell asleep.

 

Results when waking up: greatly moisturized my skin! Prior to masking I only cleansed & misted my face, so this mask helped to keep my skin hydrated. Woke up to non-oily skin, didn't feel tight or dry. Pores looked really minimized & no skin irritations/breakouts. I have another piece of this mask; would definitely recommend anyone to try it!

Developed with a naturally-derived sheet made from fermented coconut, this bio-cellulose mask is formulated with centella asiatica extract to soothe dry & rough skin. Combination of coconut water & coconut oil provides dry skin with moisture, to form a moisture film to soften skin.

 

Upon opening, definitely detected a subtle scent of coconut water + coconut oil; not too strong (in comparison to the Too Cool For School mask I used before). Mask is a thin bio-cellulose mask that had a second skin effect so it adhered well to my face shape without many air bubbles; felt cooling but kinda dry. Loads of essence left in the packet, however, which I plan to use for another round with normal cotton mask pallets. Eyes/mouth holes were well-sized, nose covered nicely, but unfortunately the fit was rather small; it didn't cover whole forehead & jawline areas. Kept on for about 25 minutes; this material dries up fast & sticks hard to the skin if you keep it on for too long.

 

Results when waking up: It definitely did it's job coz it managed to soothe some irritated areas & calm the redness. Skin felt somewhat hydrated but T-zone was slightly greasy. Not much obvious changes to pores or skin tone. I like bio-cellulose masks but this fit was a bit too small. I do like how subtle the scent was since I don't prefer a strong coconut scent. Might repurchase but not necessarily.

This mask contains Vitamin C-rich lemon extract & Niacinamide (for whitening) to help tired dull skin look bright & clear.

 

Upon opening, I immediately could smell a lemony scent! Love it; smells fresh & citrusy. The name already indicates how thin this mask is; 0.2mm, really thin & soft, soaked well with watery essence. Fit is AMAZING; adhered well to skin shape with no air bubbles & nicely shaped eye/mouth holes. Both forehead & nose were also covered well. Dried fast - fully dried around the 20-minute mark. Some essence left in the packet so I applied to skin.

 

Results when waking up: Skin definitely brightened up! I also noticed a more even skin tone. T-zone was not oily & skin was hydrated. Help to calm down some breakouts on the chin area. Pores were normal. Would definitely repurchase again!

This mask is made of 100% natural silk sheet, which is a soft & thin. This mask contains pearl barley which helps with whitening & together with a milk base helps with tightening & brightening, aiming for a clear complexion. It is formulated with pure & stable deep ocean water which contains essential minerals, found off the coast of Southern Taiwan.

 

Upon opening, a milky scent can be detected together with a faint scent of barley water. Mask is thin, well-soaked in clear essence that was not too thick. Fit is GREAT; adhered well to my face shape without many air bubbles, eyes/mouth holes were slightly smaller but no big deal, nose covered nicely. Kept on for about 30 minutes; mask got a little bit too dry so it stuck a bit on forehead area.

 

Results when waking up: red patches on my skin was gone! There were some red patches on my skin caused by a disastrous modeling mask session that this mask managed to sooth. Skin felt hydrated & did seem brighter. T-zone wasn't oily & pores look smaller!

This mask is mainly aiming for whitening & wrinkle improvement, also freshly squeezed coconut water helps to recharge skin hydration. Ceramides acts as a skin barrier to prevent moisture from evaporating & forms a protective shield against fine dust and environmental stresses.

 

Upon opening, I could immediately smell the coconut oil scent. If you know what "kerisik" is, it smells EXACTLY like that ("Kerisik" is made by grating coconut then toasting/frying it, and then grounded to a paste; it is a significant component in some Asian dishes. It is sometimes referred to as coconut butter). I don't really like the scent of coconut oil & was expecting a coconut water scent, so that was a surprise. Mask was soaked with watery essence. Fit is EXCELLENT; it's a lightweight & transparent 'air-light' sheet mask that adhered really well to my face shape. The eyes & mouth holes were great for me and covered my nose & cheek areas well. Kept on for about 30 minutes. I applied leftover essence onto my face & neck.

 

Results when waking up: Great hydration! I used the Swanicoco Intensive Vital Swan Cream after masking and my skin just soaked up all that hydrating & moisturizing goodness! Pores were barely visible. T-zone was not oily at all & skin had a healthy glow. Helped to calm down some redness & eliminated the leftover flaky dry skin I had on my forehead. All in all, this mask was highly effective for me, but won't purchase coz I don't prefer the scent.

This mask contains Matcha (green tea) extract to provide extra moisture to skin. Made from 100% cotton, this Daiso Rich Moist Essence Mask Series has 6 types; Matcha, Horse Oil, Camellia Oil, Sakura, Pearl Barley & Black Pearl. All of them seem to have the same use, just different kind of extracts.

 

Upon opening, I could immediately smell a bitter green tea powder scent, but it was subtle & just right (reminded me of a green tea latte). Mask is thick & has a slightly rough texture, fully soaked by the watery essence. Fit is great; extra large on the sides but covers forehead well, has eye flaps, and nose/mouth areas are just nicely shaped. Dried fast - fully dried around the 20-minute mark. Loads of essence left in the packet.

 

Results when waking up: AMAZING; my skin looked & felt because of this mask! Skin was fully hydrated & had a healthy glow! T-zone was not oily at all; the dry flaky skin on my forehead was gone & my pores did shrink! It also helped to calm some skin redness I had due to sensitivity/hormones. Would definitely repurchase! I Will be using the extra essence with mask pallets.

This mask is made from Cupro fibre material, which is a soft & breathable silk-like material that is immersed in Korean Oak Root/Oak Tree Sap essence, which contains natural minerals & niacinimide, aiming to nourish skin & provide brightening. Paraben-free, it also contains Licorice extract to control hyperpigmentation & Olive leaf extracts + Ceramide for glowing skin.

 

Upon opening, a somewhat strong fragrant plant-ish scent can be detected. Love the scent; it was a nice flowery fragrance that suited the pretty packaging. Mask is thin, well-soaked in thick, gel-like essence. Fit is AMAZING; it adhered really well to my face shape without any air bubbles, nose/eyes/mouth holes were just nice, and fully covered other areas. Kept on for about 40 minutes; I noticed that this mask dried up evenly on all areas, which is impressive for me (most masks dry up faster in the central facial area for me). Able to apply another layer of essence on my skin after.

 

Results when waking up: GLOWING EFFECT! My skin was brightened up & had a dewy look. Skin felt hydrated on the cheeks + T-zone area & still had a cooling feeling. However, it didn't help with some skin redness I had; surprisingly my forehead area felt a bit dry & had a flaky texture (like after a sunburn?). I would give plus points for the pleasant scent, which I really enjoyed; mask fit & the cooling feeling I felt while using it/after; as well as the glowing, dewy look it provided my skin. Would definitely purchase this mask!

This mask is enriched with natural green tea leaf extract to effectively absorb excess sebum, reduce the appearance of skin imperfections & provide a clean, purified & matified skin.

 

Upon opening, there is a green tea scent which I LOVE; it's not too perfumy but a more fragrant plant-like scent. Not overpowering but not too subtle as well (just nice for me). Mask is well-soaked with essence, the outer layer had a pinkish shade which made it & the packaging together look like a watermelon haha.. Fit is PERFECT; it's a fibre mask & had a second-skin effect that adhered really well to my face shape. The eyes & mouth holes were perfect and it fully covered my nose & cheek areas. Kept on for about 45 minutes. I applied leftover essence onto my face & neck.

 

Results when waking up: OMG super minimized pores! And my skin had a glowing but matte look to it (am I explaining this right??) Non-oily skin too, plus no breakouts, no redness. Had some pimples but those were gone! Not sure if they sell this series here at our local Sephora but I definitely am gonna look! I need more in my life!

This mask contains honey which has natural hydrating factors, amino acids & vitamins plus milk to nourish, smoothen & repair rough skin. It also aims to increase skin's protective ability, strengthen skin anti-oxidants & enable skin to be silky smooth.

Upon opening, a mild honey scent can be detected; was expecting a strong honey scent but was surprised that it was so subtle. Mask is well-soaked with essence. Fit is AMAZING; it's a thin cotton mask that adhered really well to my face shape. Kept on for about 30 minutes; it dried quite fast than usual for me, maybe coz it's thin. I applied one layer of leftover essence onto skin, but still more left in the packet.

Results when waking up: It looked like my skin was glowing! Great effect on pores; slightly firmer. However, T-zone was oily but forehead & cheeks were really hydrated. No redness or breakouts. Would purchase this for the pores & glow!

This mask aims to provide moisture & luster to dull, rough skin. Upon opening, a pleasant flower + propolis scent can be detected. Scent is similar to some Mamonde Flower Essential Masks I've tried before. Essence is milky & thick. Mask is thick cotton, well immersed in the milky essence. Was surprised to discover that this was a 2-part mask; fit is perfect in the central part of my face, eye & mouth holes just nice, nose perfectly covered.. BUT it didn't reach to cover whole forehead & cheek areas (I think I look like "The Man in the Iron Mask" 😂😂😂). No stinging during usage. Fell asleep with this mask.

 

Results when I woke up: Skin was somewhat moisturized but T-zone was oily & no change to pores. No redness or skin irritations. A bit meh for me. Don't think I will repurchase.

Luffa is a genus of tropical and subtropical vines in the cucumber family, common name sponge guard. Methinks it's like a combo of cucumber & bittergourd. The description on the mask packet is in Chinese, but according to Ashley this mask has moisturizing & soothing properties.

 

Upon opening, a strong cucumber scent can be detected. Essence is watery, mask is soaked well & dripping. Loads of leftover essence in packet. Fit is amazing, covered my whole forehead, cheeks & mouth area. Cooling feeling, no itchiness or stinging feeling. Kept on for about an hour.

 

Results when I woke up: Oooooohhhh smaller pores & smoother skin texture! Also it hydrated my cheeks & forehead areas well, a slight layer of oil on the nose area. Great results, skin was bright & plump. The scent can put off some people, though, I know a friend of mine who avoids cucumber masks coz of scent. Would love to purchase this mask if I can!

This essence/serum was given to me for free from Amabie in exchange for my honest review. I've never heard of this brand before, and I learned that it's a Taiwanese brand. I had a great experience with the CY' Lab Triple Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Mask, so I was excited to try this. Description mentions that this essence/serum can help to repair skin, moisturize & maintain skin elasticity, soothe the skin, smooth fine lines, and delay aging by restoring skin's vitality. The glass bottle comes with a dropper.

 

Scent/texture:  The scent has a deep mineral kind of smell, kind of like a thick distilled water. Texture is thick & smooth. Colour is a light coral.

 

How I use it:  I only need 1 squeeze from the dropper. Will apply directly to the skin & pat the essence after.

 

My thoughts:  Been using this essence/serum daily for about a month.  I can see some obvious results such as firmer pores, plumper & smoother skin texture, as well as helped with lightening my acne scars! One thing I don't really like is that it leaves a tacky sticky sheen to the skin, but it's not a big issue. It's really economical as well since I only need 1 squeeze from the dropper.

Urban Dollkiss The Mask Vita Brightening featuring Selly Benign - This mask contains Hippophae Rhamnoides Water a.k.a. Vitamin wood, which has vitamin derivatives & fruit extracts to whiten and promote skin revitalizing.

 

Upon opening, a strong flower scent can be detected; some may find it too overpowering. Mask is well-soaked, essence not too thick but not much left in the packet. Fit is great, no air bubbles & adhered well to skin. Mask texture is normal cotton, thickness is normal. Kept on for about more than an hour.

 

Results when waking up: This mask did help to brighten up my skin! Skin tone looked more even. Other than that, no breakouts or skin redness. T-zone was not greasy but no major changes to the pores. Wouldn't mind repurchasing for brightening effects.

Urban Dollkiss The Mask Snail Care featuring Jasmin Charming - This mask contains Snail Secretion Filtrate to provide moisture to skin & maintain a glowy moist look.

 

Upon opening, detected a REALLY STRONG perfume scent, which is different from other snail masks I've tried. I'm usually not bothered by strong scent but this was quite overpowering. Mask is well-soaked with thick essence & not much left in the packet. Fit is great, no air bubbles & adhered well to skin. Mask texture is normal cotton, thickness is normal. Kept on for about 30 minutes (I felt that this one dried faster than the others).

 

Results when waking up: Great moisturization, skin was not oily. Pores looked firmer & no breakouts. This is a good mask as it delivers what it aims to. I like the mask fit but I don't like the strong scent. Don't think I will repurchase.

Urban Dollkiss The Mask Aqua Soothing featuring Emily Sensual - This mask contains Hyaluronic, Vitamin & Trehalose (which has high water retention capabilities) to help increase skin elastin & maintain high skin moisture.

 

Upon opening, a strong perfume scent can be detected; might be slightly overpowering for those sensitive to scent. Mask is well-soaked with essence & still loads of extra in the packet. Fit is great, similar to all the previous ones in this series. Adhered well to skin, mask texture is normal cotton, thickness is normal. Kept on for about 45 minutes & continued with usual PM moisturizer.

 

Results when waking up: Plump & smooth skin texture! Skin had a glow without any grease, especially the T-zone, and felt fully hydrated. Also helped to calm some skin breakouts I had; skin redness was gone. The only thing I didn't like would probably be the strong scent on this, but amazing hydration! Might repurchase but not necessarily.

Urban Dollkiss The Mask Collagen Power featuring Claudia Bouncing - This mask contains collagen to maintain skin elasticity. It claims to be suitable for sensitive skin & also helps with moisturizing.

 

Upon opening, a floral scent can be detected; obvious but not too overpowering. Mask is well-soaked with essence & still loads of extra in the packet. Fit is great, like the previous ones. Adhered well to skin, mask texture is normal cotton, thickness is normal. Kept on for about 40 minutes & applied leftover essence on skin.

 

Results when waking up: Ooooohhhh pores were almost invisible! 😍😍😍 I mean, they did shrink a lot (my pores are my main skin concern). Skin also looked & felt smoother. No grease on the skin at all & skin felt hydrated and plump! Would definitely repurchase!

Urban Dollkiss Black Pearl Shine featuring Erin Luminous - This mask contains Black Pearl extract to help prevent skin from drying & maintain a clear complexion as well as radiant skin.

 

Upon opening, a subtle perfume scent can be detected; it is vaguely familiar as I recall it to be similar to Etude House I Need You Pearl Mask. Maybe pearl powder scent, if anyone knows. Mask is usual cotton, texture is normal & soaked well with essence. Fit is great; adhered well to skin shape. One thing I noticed so far about this series is that the folds on the masks will somehow leave creases on my skin 😂😂😂 but it doesn't bother me much. Kept on for 40 minutes & then pat pat pat leftover essence.

 

Results when I woke up: skin was glowing! There was an obvious brightness, skin tone looked even & smoother skin texture. No breakouts & no oiliness on T-zone. Would repurchase if possible!

Upon opening, a flowery scent can be detected. Mask was fully soaked with essence, texture is usual cotton. Fit is REALLY GOOD. Adhered well to skin & shaped nicely. Kept on for about 35 minutes until it dried up. Loads of leftover essence which I applied on skin.

 

Results when I woke up: Great effect on skin brightening & minimized pores! My face visibly brightened & pores were significantly smoother. No oiliness on T-zone area & skin felt smooth & moisturized. Would love to repurchase this again!

This Chulala Herbal Soap was sent to me by Amabie for my honest review.  I love the packaging; the box has a recycled paper feel, brown colour with a simple design. The soap bar is oval shaped, white colour & doesn't have a scent.  The packaging mentions that this soap uses ingredients exclusive to Okinawa.

 

Scent/texture:  Soap doesn't have any scent.  It lathers well when you scrub it with wet hands.  Texture is bubbly soft & foamy.

 

How I use it:  I use this soap in my AM routine.  I will wet my hands with water & scrub this soap once, the apply the foam on my wet skin.

 

My thoughts:  It doesn't give my skin a drying feel!  It cleanses the grease on my T-zone well, and my skin feels soft & smooth.  I like how it lathers well & needs minimal use.  The soap bar doesn't soften when wet, or cause any residue on the container that I use to store it.  I think this soap can be used as a pre-cleanser if need be.  I like this better than the April Skin Magic Stone.

This cream contains California Aloe that utilizes concentrated ingredients. It gives an instant cooling effect & delivers maximum hydration, helps to moisturize, soothe & improve skin elasticity. It also claims to help with cell regeneration & beneficial to sun exposed skin. 

 

Scent/texture: Even though the name says it's a cream, it is actually more of a gel texture. There is a subtle aloe scent that is fresh. Feels cool when applied to skin. The gel-like texture slightly melts to a watery feel once it touches the skin.

 

How I use it: I use this as a night cream mostly, as it is light & has a cooling effect, which helps me to sleep. It is lightweight enough so that I can apply a sleeping mask over it without my skin feeling too heavy with product.

 

My thoughts: I like this cream! My skin loves aloe so this cream is just perfect for my PM skincare routine. This cream also helped me alot when I have sunburnt or irritated skin. It helps with the skin peeling off nicely if I have sunburn, and helps to calm down any skin redness I have. Would repurchase this but I would like to try other similar sort of creams to include in my night routine.

This is a sleeping pack that comes in a easy-to-store capsule that contains clear, gel-like cream that can be used for about 6 times. Bija & aloe aims to help with skin trouble & soothing care with bija and aloe ingredients (contains 100ppm of bija oil, 1,000ppm of aloe vera leaf juice extract & 1,000 ppm of aloe vera leaf extract). 

 

Scent/texture: It has a somewhat herbal smell (I'm guessing it's the bija) & has the cooling feeling of aloe vera. It is in the form of clear gel, easy to apply & absorbs well.

 

How I use it: I keep this capsule pack in the fridge after opening to retain it's freshness & to enable it to last longer. I use this sleeping pack when I have breakouts/skin irritations. I can use 1 capsule pack for up to 6 times; it depends on how much you apply onto the skin. It doesn't have a spatula, but I usually just apply it with clean hands. I don't apply it too thickly, just an even layer.

 

My thoughts: I love this sleeping pack! After I apply it overnight, my skin irritations/breakouts are ALWAYS gone the next day! It also gives a moist/supple feeling to the skin. I like how easy it is to store & doesn't take much space. I also like the herbal scent. Will definitely repurchase as it gives me the results I want.

This cleansing balm is considered as one of the best cleansing balms! It helps to perfectly remove heavy, tenacious makeup with only a little bit of product. It has a solid balm texture that then turns into silky oil during cleansing. It has a sorbet-like, lightweight feel that removes makeup while maintaining skin's natural oils. Contains papaya extract to naturally exfoliate skin & acerola extract to help brighten skin. It helps to clean skin of debris, tightens pores, rehydrate & soften tired skin. The balm comes with a spatula to ensure hygiene.

 

Scent/texture: It has a mellow scent that's not overpowering at all. Texture is like sorbet; it's solid when you scoop it out & put it on your hand, which turns to oil when you mix with water & apply to skin.

 

How I use it: I scoop some of the balm with the spatula, put it on my hand, then mix it with some water. At the same time I do splash some water onto my face before I rub the balm on my face. The first time I tried this balm, I didn't splash water onto my face, which caused some redness & breakouts to happen. I also feel that splashing some water on the face helps to fasten the cleansing process. After I rub my face I rinse with water & towel-dry.

 

My thoughts: I really LOVE LOVE LOVE this balm! It's my first pre-cleanser/cleansing balm & I don't think I will ever fall out of love with it. I have normal/combo skin so I think this one is perfect for me. I love the scent; it's not overpowering & really fresh-scented. The texture is a major plus for me; it's gentle & melts nicely onto the skin. This balm removes makeup really effectively & makes my blackheads/whiteheads easier to remove. Skin feels clean & fresh after use, and it's really easy to wash off without any feeling of residue. The 180ml jar is value for money & really economical; it can last for months. Will definitely repurchase this! Highly recommended & HG worthy!

This shampoo is a refreshing deep cleansing silicone-free shampoo. Contains mint formulation (mint oil + mint extract) for sebum control that controls excessive scalp sebum. The rich lather helps to thoroughly remove residue from hair and scalp. The green tea & silicon-free components add moisture to hair & refreshes scalp without leaving residue.

 

Scent/texture: Has a mint scent, strong but not overpowering. I don't like to eat mint but I'm okay with the scent. Texture is a creamy liquid, thick & lathers well.

 

How I use it:  The usual way; I pour some onto my hand, mix with water & apply to hair. As this shampoo is more for the scalp, I make sure that I scrub scalp gently with the lather.

 

My thoughts:  This shampoo does give a refreshing feeling to the scalp, feels clean & smells fresh. However, I have some dandruff problem & I feel this shampoo didn't help much with this. I still have white flakes in my hair. Also, this shampoo does not help much with hair-detangling.  I need to use this with the conditioner, only then my hair is smoother & detangles properly. While washing it leaves a tacky feel to the hair texture, which can only be resolved with conditioner. Won't repurchase this.

I've always been a fan of Mamonde, and always trying to find products for pore care.  Bought this toner in the flagship Mamonde store in Myeongdong, Seoul. This toner aims to effectively remove any dirt, sebum & dead skin cells that can clog the pores. It contains heartleaf houttuynia, which can help with skin detox, as well as effectively control oiliness & help with pore-tightening. The bottle does  mention 'pore & blackhead care'.

 

Ingredients:  Water, Houttuynia Cordata Extract (10,01%), Glycerin, Dioscorea Japonica Root Extract, Glycine Max (Soybean) Sprout Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Artemisia Vulgaris Extract, Xylitol, Dextrin, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Extract, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Octyldodeceth-16, Sodium Phytate, Propanediol, Fragrance.

 

Scent/texture:  The toner has a flower herb sort of scent, as well as a faint trace of alcohol (?). I'm usually not affected much by scent so I was okay with the scent. The liquid is average watery texture & is clear.

 

How I use it:  I pour some on to cotton pads & rub my skin to remove any dirt.  I focus mainly on the nose & upper cheeks area as my pores are prominent on these areas, as well as having whiteheads/blackheads. Sometimes I pour the toner onto my hand & pat pat pat on my skin.

 

My thoughts:  I do think that this toner helped with my pores!  This was actually my first toner that focused on pore care & blackheads, and since I used this, my blackheads/whiteheads have been lesser/easier to remove.  Usually the cotton pad that I use with this toner shows a decent amount of dirt removed. My pores are significantly smaller than they were a year ago.  Also, it helped with sebum control; my skin is less oily now. Really pleased with the results.  However, sometimes on days when my skin is sensitive, the toner does cause some redness. Nowadays, I alternately use this toner with other toners that I have.

 

Urban Dollkiss The Mask Honey Moist featuring Kate Cherishable - This mask contains Honey, Propolis & Royal Jelly extracts to provide deep moisture & nourishment to tired skin. Upon opening, a sweet honey scent can be detected immediately. It's not a strong perfume kind, just regular honey + sugar scent, which is pleasant. Essence has a slightly thick clear consistency. Mask fit is great! Mask adhered well to skin, no air bubbles. Kept on for about 30 minutes until some parts dried up. Pat pat pat leftover essence in packet. Results after waking up: SUPER MOIST SKIN! Felt moisturized & plump with all the honey goodness. It also helped to brighten up my skin & no oiliness even on the T-zone. Pores was not so enlarged but some breakouts on chin area. But I wouldn't mind repurchasing for the moisturizing effects.

 

Love the packaging of this series! Used this Urban Dollkiss The Mask Teatree Blemish featuring Dolly Gorgeous.  This mask contains tea tree extract to help soothe tired & irritated skin. Also aims to smoothen the skin & tighten the pores. Upon opening, an obvious tea tree scent, pleasant & not too strong. Fit is quite perfect, adhered well to skin. Mask is thin with a smooth texture, well soaked with clear essence, not much leftover in packet. Kept on for about 30 minutes. Results: Had some minor breakouts so was hoping this mask could help calm them down. Unfortunately they didn't 😢😢😢 However, this mask had a great effect on my pores! Barely visible & smoother skin texture. Slightly oily t-zone but felt somewhat moisturized. Would repurchase this but not necessarily.

This mask is aiming for intense hydration for a glowing & plumper skin. The packaging is cute! Designed by a young designer HAPOOOOOM. Upon opening, detected an aqua sort of smell. No perfume, all natural scent. This is a tencel sheet, made from cellulose, a more eco-friendly choice. Essence is clear & thick liquid type. Mask is thin, but fit is somewhat bad. Mask has eye flaps but it was badly shaped & didn't cover eyes properly. Areas around the nose & mouth were also slightly too large. Mask adhered well to skin, though, no air bubbles. Kept on for about 25 minutes until it dried up. Some leftover essence in the package so I applied that to the face. Results: Skin felt really hydrated! T-zone was clear with no oiliness, no breakouts & helped to soften my flaky sunburnt skin! Totally improved my skin texture & calmed my redness. I have more of this mask so will continue to use them. Might repurchase in future!

Thank you again, Amabie, for giving me a chance to try this mask! This mask is AMAZING! This is a Taiwanese mask; from it's name that this mask aims for intense skin hydration. Upon opening, a subtle floral + aqua scent can be detected. Pleasant, not strong, natural scent. The mask is super thin, seems like it's made from cellulose, had a plastic layer which should be peeled off after placing the mask on the skin. Mask texture is smooth & soft, and the Essence is slightly slimy-watery type, not too thick & non-sticky. Fit is WONDERFUL. It adhered to the face like a second skin, really translucent to the point that it looked like my face just brightened up. Nose flap was slightly shorter, though, only covered half of my nose. Eye areas slightly large but mouth area is perfect. Results: AMAZING! Skin was soft, plump & hydrated. No oiliness at all at the T-zone. Pores were barely visible & skin tone brightened up. However, it didn't help much with the breakouts I already had. Still a really good mask, probably one of the best I've ever tried. Would definitely purchase!

I love this brand - Hanna & Kent is a local brand in Malaysia. This mask aims to moisturize & boost complexion, to help rejuvenate skin. It says here, "instantly softens & refines skin for a clean slate from the all-nighters!" Yayyy!

 

Upon opening, a subtle aqua scent. The word 'bio-cellulose' somehow didn't register in my head & I was totally expecting a cotton mask 😂😂😂 one thing that made me immediately love this mask: it has eye flaps! I've never actually used a bio-cellulose mask that has eye flaps; immediate double masking there. The fit is quite big on the outer parts so it overlapped some parts of the hair. Kept on for about 30 minutes; into the 15th minute I felt that it started to dry fast & stick to the skin. Not much essence left in packet.

Results in the morning: AMAZING! It helped to shrink my pores; was amazed at how my skin felt hydrated & there was really no sebum residue when I woke up in the morning. Such a good local brand; will definitely repurchase!

This mask is meant for oil control & acne as well as tightening pores. Probably one of the WORSE masks I've tried on. It's too lousy, I can't even... URGH. Mask had a really rough cotton texture, that dried up in less than 5 minutes! Super watery essence, light flower scent, but mask wasn't even wet enough to begin with. Loads of leftover essence in packet, but it was just that: WATERY ESSENCE. Results in the morning: Nothing happened, be it good or bad. It's just water lol~ It's so bad; I'm so dumbfounded hahahaha..

Description on packaging: This fine delicate cotton mask contains hyaluronic acid to relieve skin dryness, leaving skin feeling dewy & hydrated. Had a slight pleasant citrus smell upon opening. Thinner sheet than normal ones, adhered to the face shape almost immediately. Dried faster due to how thin it is.  Results: skin did feel moisturized. Quite surprised at how plump skin felt with such a thin mask sheet. Would repurchase again!

This is a 3-step kit for nose-pore cleaning. Step 1 is to melt the waste, sebum & blackhead; Step 2 is the removal of dead skin cell & sebum; Step 3 is to sooth the irritated skin with natural bio-cellulose to refresh.

During Step 1: Felt a mild tingling sensation which lasted a while. Kept on strip for 20 mins.

During Step 2: Applied strip as evenly as possible; kept on for 15 mins. Results after pulling off: a lot of gunk pulled out from front of the nose, but not much from the side. Still, I'm quite satisfied with the results. Yayyy!

During Step 3: The essence was thick & had gold flecks. Not sure what it was for but the essence did help to calm down the skin irritation. Gold flecks were gone in the morning.

Overall, quite satisfied with this. Will repurchase!  It's very hard to find good nose strips.

From Peach&Lily website: This soothing mask contains lavender extract which is known to alleviate skin problems and help heal wounds. Often referred to as a natural painkiller, lavender has soothing qualities and effectively reacts to relieve sensitive skin issues. This Tencel sheet mask with its soft texture delivers the essence formula effectively to skin. It includes Mizon’s "vital essence" which is a formula made of 1) Allantoin to help recover your skin condition 2) Trehalose, which is a safe natural moisturizing ingredient 3) Hyaluronic Acid, a moisturizer that holds 1000 times its weight in water and 4) Sc-glucan, an ingredient that soothes and revitalizes.

 

Upon opening, a subtle lavender scent can be detected; really nice & calming. The mask is cotton type with patterns, thickness is average, slightly rough. Adheres well to skin & fit is great. Kept on for about 30 minutes till it dried up. No leftover essence in packet. Results: Skin immediately did feel the soothing effect when I applied the mask. Helped to calm some of the burning feeling. When I woke up my skin felt moisturized & less red. My current sun burnt skin has started to peel off nicely without much irritation. Quite pleased with this mask; will repurchase!

A'pieu Strawberry Milk One Pack Sheet Mask for Brightening - This mask contains real milk essence that gives hydration to skin & prevent drying, also contains Vitamin C rich strawberry extract that aims to brighten & provide a clear skin appearance. Upon opening, I was surprised to find a strawberry jam scent rather than a strawberry milk scent. I really like the scent! It was as if I was spreading strawberry jam on my face lol~ Mask fit is great, texture & type is normal cotton mask. Slightly diluted milky type essence, soaked well into mask sheet, not much left in packet. Kept on for about 40 minutes & pat pat pat leftover essence onto skin. Results: Wow my skin actually brightened up! Also noticed that skin tone was more even. Skin feels moisturized & only a bit oily on the nose area. Pores looked normal but did help to calm down some breakouts I had. Would include this in my next purchase list!

A'pieu Coffee Milk One Pack Sheet Mask for Firming - This anti-aging mask contains Coffee extract that helps to give firm elasticity for glowing silky skin care, as well as moisture & nutrition from hydrolyzed collagen helps to prevent rough skin. Upon opening, I could immediately smell a definite coffee scent, which reminded me of morning coffee. It wasn't too strong, very pleasant. Great fit, normal cotton texture & thickness. Soaked with diluted milky type essence so not much left in package. Kept on till I fell asleep. Results: woke up to firmer skin; pores were barely there! Only a bit of oiliness on the nose area; some redness on the forehead, but no itchiness, fortunately. Skin was well moisturized & felt plump. Would definitely include this in my purchase list next time!

 A'pieu Chocolate Milk One Pack Sheet Mask for Smoothing - This mask contains Cacao extract to sooth dead skin for silky skin care, as well as plum extract to purify skin for clear & brighter skin. Upon opening, a strong cocoa scent but somehow it also had a sugary butter cookie scent? A bakery scent lol~ wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (FYI I don't really like chocolate). Mask is thin & soaked with essence. Fit was HORRIBLE. The mask was stretched out badly, holes too big on the right side of the eye & mouth area. Kept on for about 30 minutes. Results: had some redness & itchiness during my night routine so this mask helped to calm them. Skin was quite moisturized & woke up to slightly oily skin but redness was gone & no itchiness. Wouldn't mind repurchasing this for the effectiveness but the fit is terrible.

 A'pieu Coconut Milk One Pack Sheet Mask for Moisturizing - This mask contains fiber, vitamin B & Coconut extract to provide deep hydration to the skin. It also has white mushroom extract to make the skin feel soft & smooth. Upon opening, there was a familiar floral scent (does somehow remind me of my liquid detergent lol); not too strong so it was pleasant enough (although I was looking forward to some coconut milk scent). Mask was thin and a bit stretched so the mouth & nose areas were really wide. Texture is normal cotton & was adequately soaked with essence. Easy to fit to face & started to dry up after the 20 minute mark. Kept on till I fell asleep. No essence left in packet. Results: skin was somewhat hydrated since I didn't moisturize well before & after masking. Skin texture was soft & pores looked slightly smaller. My favourite would still be the White Milk one in this series. I enjoyed this more than the Green Tea one.

This mask aims to reduce the appearance of wrinkles & signs of aging for firmer looking skin & a more even contour. Upon opening, had a subtle flowery smell. The eye patches are made from cotton & had a rougher texture (in comparison to TONYMOLY Panda's Dream Eye Patch). Great area coverage, the patches cover from the bridge of the nose till ends of the eye & even extends slightly above (extended half moon shape with curvy end, if that makes any sense, lol). Kept on for about 15 mins, dries up quite fast & not much leftover essence in packet, but it sticks well without sliding off much. Results in the morning: Somewhat brightening, but skin texture didn't improve. Will try the other types in the Sephora eye masks series.

This mask is made from soybean & is perfectly adhesive to skin. It contains propolis which deeply penetrates skin to ease & sooth redness & troubled skin for a clear complexion. Upon opening, you can smell a nice flowery scent. The mask is sticky & really adapts to face shape. Compared to a previous Second Skin mask I've tried, this one fitted better. Fell asleep with the mask on all night & had to peeled it off my face because it stuck very hard (gave the feeling of peeling off skin). Results in the morning: AH-MA-ZINGGG! Pores were super small, redness gone & some stray breakouts went away. Skin was really, really smooth & had a brighter tone. This worked so much better than the Brightening one. Smell is pleasant & love the feel of the mask itself.

This mask is made from soybean & is perfectly adhesive to skin. It contains vitamin C that deeply penetrates skin to increase vitality of dull skin to create a brightened complexion. Upon opening, there is a strong but pleasant citrus scent. The mask is sticky & really adapts to your face shape. A bit big around the lips & a bit small around the eyes. Kept on for about 30 minutes. Dried faster on the T-zone area. Results in the morning: Can't say much about brightening, but skin felt soft & hydrated. Love the smell, and I like how the mask adheres so well to the skin. 

This mask contains Milk protein extract to soften dry skin cells as well as Aloe extract to supply moisture with a soothing effect. Upon opening, immediately fell in love with the scent - it smelled like BUTTER MILK COOKIES, I KID YOU NOT! The mask is an average cotton mask, not too thick or too thin, well soaked with the essence. Fit is good (a bit short on the forehead part), easy to apply & adheres well to face shape. I felt super relaxed with the delicious smell that I fell asleep with the mask on. Some essence left in the packet so I will be using that with my Daiso/Muji mask pallet. Results: no lingering butter milk cookie scent (bummer!) but I woke up to really hydrated skin! Skin was plump & wasn't oily at all. I didn't go through my usual skincare routine coz I was tired so I just cleansed & used the Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel Mist to tone & moisturize. Really pleased with this mask in terms of scent & effects (the Green Tea Milk one in the same series was a major letdown) so I think I SHOULD repurchase this!

This mask contains Green Tea extract to sooth sensitive skin gently & hazel extract to improve skin condition by balancing skin moisture. Upon opening, a really strong sweet perfume smell detected. Some reviews mentioned how similar the scent was to floor cleaning products; they aren't entirely wrong there, the scent was quite overpowering. I don't think I'm very sensitive to smell but this mask was really potent. Was totally expecting green tea or milky scent. Felt a slight tingling earlier on but it went away soon enough. Fit is actually quite good & didn't dry too fast; kept on for about 35 minutes. Results: breakouts! Pimples popped up around the chin area as well as some stray ones on the cheek. Some minor redness as well. Maybe I'm allergic to the perfume? Skin felt somewhat moisturized but nothing amazing. Anyway, I don't think I will repurchase. Their packaging is super cute though, too bad they didn't work well for me.

This Mask sheet in Lemon aims to brighten dull skin for an even skin tone. It comes in individual patches, imitating mini lemon slices that allows you to place them onto the areas you need more help with. This series also has Cucumber & Tomato, which I have already reviewed before. Upon opening, had a fresh lemon scent, really nice. The patches are different sizes so basically you decide where you want to apply them. The patches dried up quite fast so I kept them on for about 15 mins only. Loads of essence leftover, so I applied that all over skin. Results: Meh, didn't see much results with this one. No breakouts, which I'm always grateful for. My favourite would still be the Tomato one, even though I liked the scent of this one. Won't repurchase this one.

This mask aims to tighten pores, control excessive sebum, and improve skin resilience. I'm a big fan of Mediheal masks, and I loved this one! Upon opening, there is a fresh scent, sort of like fresh water. The mask is charcoal type, quite thick but has a soft fibre-like texture & has a lot of essence. Doesn't dry too fast so I was able to enjoy it for almost an hour. Results in the morning: quite amazing! Pores did look significantly smaller & skin was well-hydrated. No breakouts or skin irritations. Will definitely repurchase!

This eye mask contains Aloe Vera & Collagen. Upon opening, a strong aloe vera scent detected but was not overpowering. These eye masks are large enough to cover from the undereye area to half the cheek area. Really cool feeling. Results in the morning: Undereyes felt smooth & plump. I love these Guardian eye masks coz they are cute & affordable. Would highly recommend them!

This mask contains an ample amount of Vitamins A, B, D, C and E & bio-polymers to moisturize & slow down the aging process. It also aims to intensely hydrate & leave your skin looking bright, radiant, and youthful. Upon opening, a strong flowery (?) scent. Mask is really thin but not 'second skin' thin, which I really like. Fit is great! Felt a somewhat burning sensation but it didn't last long. Fell asleep using this mask so kept it on until I woke up; it dried on the skin but wasn't stuck, so it was very easy to remove without any pain. Results: AMAZING - pores were smaller & skin was glowing without any oily finish. Skin felt quite hydrated even though I didn't moisturize before masking, major plus there. No skin irritations or breakouts detected. Would totally include this mask in my collection again.

Bought a bunch of b.liv masks & using them as soon as I can coz they are expiring end of this year 😂😂😂 This mask aims for youth preservation, preventing fine lines, firming & brightening. "Sheer off crease whisks off the age buster, whips up your collagen, and pulls a plug on your fine lines - by its Botox-like action." Such promise. Upon opening, a citrus smell & essence was orange colour. Mask fits well, able to adhere easily to face shape, smooth cotton texture & normal thickness. Didn't dry up too fast so kept it on for more than 30 minutes. Lots of essence left in package. Results: Can't really say if it gave much firming, pores looked the same. And I woke up with really greasy skin 😨😨😨 don't think I will repurchase.

Chose this coz I had some pimples popping up. "This exfoliating blemish treatment mask soothes problem of complexion's irritations & sends unsightly oil shine to far-off destinations." Uhuh. Contains Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate + Witch Hazel Extract + Hyaluronic Acid. Upon opening, strong chemical scent. Easy to apply, fit is good, texture is smooth cotton. Felt a slight burning feeling for a while, didn't dry off fast so kept on for 30 minutes. Results: No skin redness, which is good. Pimples/breakouts weren't immediately 'terminated' but they were calmer & gone faster than if I were to use pimple pads. Skin had a slightly greasy shine but not too oily. Probably won't repurchase coz it's a meh.

Bought this in Seoul. This mask contains Apple extracts (apparently Muzi is crazy about apples) that aims to sooth & moisturize rough, sensitive skin. Upon opening, a fruity scent, not sure if apples smell like that but it was quite strong. Mask has the printed face of Muzi, fit is good around the mid-face area but overlapped around the outer areas. Texture is normal cotton. I like this mask for it's eye flaps. Kept on for 35 minutes until it dried up. No essence left in packet. Results when I woke up: Somewhat soothing but not much difference to skin texture. No breakouts & no oily stickiness so that's a plus. Won't repurchase this, though.

This mask has the combo of Clay + Apple extracts to help with tightening & clearing up of pores for smooth skin. Upon opening, a subtle fruity scent, which is nice. I don't generally prefer hydrogel masks but this one was a pleasant surprise! Fit was AMAZING & didn't slide off easily. Easy to unfold & adhered really well to the face shape. Didn't dry up too fast so kept on for about 40 minutes. Results when I woke up: Pores were somewhat smaller but sudden appearance of blackheads. Though I did manage to remove those easily with a facial scrub. Skin was hydrated & didn't wake up to greasy skin. A good hydrogel mask but probably won't repurchase unless there was a discount.

This eye mask aims to nourish & revitalize skin around the eyes, as well as to prevent & lighten dark circles & fine lines. Upon opening, no scent detected; watery essence, not too thick, but no leftover essence in packet. Fit was slightly large around the eyes, didn't cover much eye areas. Felt like Batman with this mask! 😁😁😁😁😁 Nananananana~~~ dried up quite fast, about 15 minutes, so I removed it & continued with usual skincare routine. Results in the morning: no visible effect except for smoother skin. No brightening effects. I only like it for the design. Won't be repurchasing.

A favourite! Coz I love charcoal masks! It's super moist & has loads of essence! The sheet mask feel is also smoother than the normal mask sheets, great thickness, subtle smell & cool feeling. Didn't dry too fast so I kept int on for more than 30 minutes.  Skin felt very soft after use, no breakouts & hydrated skin. Definite repurchase!

This is a wrinkle-smoothing sheet mask enriched with French palmarosa extract to moisturize the skin and lessen wrinkles. Contains hyaluronic acid, chamomile extract, and proline added, this sheet mask can repair and restore the smoothness back to your skin. Upon opening, there is a slight flowery smell. L'Herboflore masks have a lot of essence, so mask was soaked & lots of essence left in packet. Surprisingly, this mask was very thin; I actually ripped some parts of the mask. Not much effect except for slight skin brightening. Will try other masks from L'Herboflore.

This mask sheet contains nourishing cream that aims to revitalize tired skin. Upon opening, had a milky scent. Mask is thick & had loads of creamy essence. Fit was great, felt a slight tingling on the skin. Kept on for about half an hour. Loads of leftover essence in packet. Results: skin felt soft but not much hydration. A bit of brightening & no breakouts. This is probably THEFACESHOP's best mask series. I like how creamy it is compared to their other series.

Can't tell much about this mask; everything was in Korean 😂😂😂😂😂 and can't find anything online about it. However, Lemon Balm is known for it's medicinal & anti-aging properties. Upon opening, there was a subtle citrus smell. The mask is quite big & easily torn but thick enough. Kept on for about 30 minutes. Results in the morning: Woke up to smaller pores & non-oily skin! Not much moisture but no breakouts. Would love to repurchase this but can't remember where I got it lol.

This mask promotes moist & healthy skin by providing mineral water to help nourish skin. Upon opening, no scent detected. Mask is the 'second skin' type of mask. Fit was not so good; mouth & eye areas were too small. Comparing this to other 'second skin' masks, this one didn't adhere well to skin. Some parts crumpled up & was hard to smooth over. Left on for about 20 minutes as it dried fast & started sticking hard to my skin. Results: Not too bad, skin felt hydrated & not oily when I woke up. Not much change to skin texture, but plump enough. May not repurchase; other masks are better.

This mask has soy milk properties, containing vegetable proteins that acts as a natural substance for skin to maintain flexibility, firmness & brightness. Upon opening, had a faint grainy (bean-y?) smell, but not overpowering. Mask is really thin but adheres well to skin. Fit is great; texture is soft. Kept on for about 30 minutes; dried fast on the T-zone so I applied the leftover essence onto the mask to prolong wearing it. Results in the morning: Not much can be said; woke up to oily T-zone but not much hydration on other areas. Won't repurchase.

This mask contains the precious & high-quality ingredients such as pearl powder, Ginseng and Chinese liquorice extracts to effectively nourish & moisturize the skin, improving roughness and dullness. Upon opening, there was a subtle sweet scent. No unpleasant herbal scent. Mask is thin; in between 2 layers of film. Fit is great, just a few bubbles. Kept on for almost 30 minutes until slightly dry. Results: not too bad! Skin was plump & somehow managed to minimize pores. Also noticed that the skin looked slightly brighter. Felt smooth. Wouldn't mind repurchasing.

This hydro gel mask contains olive ingredients to form a natural moisture barrier to the skin to help retain long lasting moisture within. Upon opening, had a nice scent, but not much essence. I don't particularly like hydro gel masks, but this was one of the 'not bad' ones. Mask can be easily applied & doesn't slide off face easily. Cool feeling lasted about 15 minutes, fit was almost perfect (a little bit wide on the mouth area). Applied leftover essence after removing mask. Results: woke up with super oily skin lol~~~ but felt hydrated and no breakouts. Will probably repurchase again.

This hydro-gel mask contains Jeju cactus ingredients to replenish skin moisture & elasticity while creating resilient & healthy skin. In all honesty, I'm not really a fan of hydro-gel masks 😅 this one had a really good scent though, but somehow the mask wasn't as cooling as expected. It's gel-like but somehow dried out fast. Cooling effect only lasted about 15 mins. And since I'm such a NOOB, I only realized halfway that I might have placed the wrong side on my face; both sides had different textures: one side was smooth & the other side had a stripy-like texture. 😂😂😂😂😂 My nails also scrapped the mask so it broke at some areas. Kept it on for 30 mins & applied remaining essence from the packet. Results: skin felt moisturized, no breakouts & pores considerably smaller. Might repurchase; I love the scent & I have to retry with the right side on lol~~ 

Its main element is Ginseng, aiming for dry & damaged skin.

Smell: Initially it had a weird smell that gradually faded so it wasn't bad; guessing it's the ginseng, not really familiar with how ginseng smells.

Look: The mask design is definitely fun to use & pretty to look at. Sort of like a masquerade mask. Initially thought it was an eye mask only lol~ 
Feel: Mask was quite thick, moisture lasted for more than half an hour. Skin did feel a lot smoother in the morning, softer texture & super moisturized!

Tried this cute Tony Moly Panda's Dream Eye Patch: Definitely works wonders! Consists of two pieces of dark-coloured patches, big enough to cover the eye area (below eyebrows & slightly above cheeks); practically making an appearance of Panda eyes! Has a light neutral scent & enough essence to keep patches moist on eyes. A cooling feeling for relaxation, and eye area does feel smoother. Personally pleased with skin texture after 1 time application.

This mask sheet contains Acai Berry extract to provide anti-oxidants for younger & healthier skin. Upon opening, had a subtle acai berry juice smell. Etude House I Need You Masks have a good amount of essence, this one included. Mask was soaked & even had leftover essence in the packet. The thickness of the mask is good, however the fit is a bit small. The forehead area didn't reach my hairline & the eye holes were small, they covered my eyelids! I have tried other Etude House masks but their fit was way better. Results in the morning: some breakouts calmed down, skin was plump & felt very soft & smooth. No major changes to pores. Will probably repurchase but Etude House already discontinued this series.

This mask sheet aims to provide radiant skin that is full of vitality. Upon opening, there was a subtle mango scent. Fit was good, soaked with essence & didn't dry fast. Kept on for about half an hour & applied leftover essence onto skin. Results in the morning: mask did an okay job. Can't claim skin to be radiant but pores were slightly calmer. Not much hydration though. Will repurchase, maybe, to retry.

This mask contains Snail Mucin to lock in moisture & supply a layer of nourishment to the skin. Ingredients include Red Ginseng Water & Snail Secretion Filtrate. Upon opening, a pleasant smell. Mask is a cotton mask which was soaked in essence. Lots of leftover essence. Fit is great. Kept on for almost 30 minutes, didn't dry up too fast. Results: Great effect on the pores! Pores were less visible. Also great hydration & skin fell smooth when I woke up. Helped to calm some of the skin irritations caused by AHA. Will definitely repurchase!

This mask aims to give a moisturizing effect for a smooth, gentle & hydrated skin. Upon opening, had a fresh watery scent. Mask is quite thick & thoroughly soaked in essence. Fit is close to perfection! Didn't dry too fast; kept on for about 45 minutes until I fell asleep & it flew away 😂😂😂😂😂 Felt a cooling & calming sensation. Loads of essence left in packet. Results in the morning: AMAZING! Shrunken pores & no oiliness; helped to calm some redness & breakouts that I had. Soft smooth skin that was well-hydrated. This was the 1st time I tried a My Scheming mask after reading loads of good reviews from the ABcommunity so will definitely repurchase more!

Contains Jeju Tangerine peel extract that provides fresh moisture to dull skin. Had a pleasant scent of oranges upon opening. Delicate cotton mask soaked in mildly watery essence. The pleasantness of the scent was short lived because the fit is HORRIBLE. Too big around the eyes, nose, lips area. Didn't enjoy the feeling & kept it on for close to 30 minutes only. Applied leftover essence in packet, which felt nicer coz of the scent. Results in the morning: not much hydration but didn't cause any breakouts so it was okay.

This is a sheet mask containing rice essence in its compact cell fabric to make rough skin look clear & smooth. Upon opening, had a strong rice scent. Mask sheet is thick & easily sticks to skin. Some areas dried out very fast. Fit was great, though. Skin felt calm & no skin breakouts reported. In fact, it helped calm down some stray pimples. Thick essence & none left in packet.

This is a sheet mask containing mango essence in its compact cell fabric to make skin feel moist & flawless.  Upon opening, had a very pleasant mango scent! I love mango so I might be a little bit bias 😂😂😂😂😂 Mask sheet is thick & easily sticks to skin. This mask didn't dry out as fast the Red Ginseng one I tried before but surprisingly the fit was horrible, too large at the mouth area. But amazing results in the morning, though! Pores were significantly smaller & skin was not as oily. Thick essence & none left in packet.

Had a strong ginseng smell that I didn't really appreciate, but the scent went away after a while.  Fit is good but dried up very fast.  Results in the morning:  some brightening but not much hydration.  Might repurchase just to retry.

T.P.O. Moisturizing Mask contains plant ingredients like Aloe Vera, Sage, Bamboo, Rosemary & Lily.  Upon opening, had a subtle freshwater scent. Fit is good & mask is thin. Kept on for goodness how long coz I fell asleep haha.  Results in the morning: Woke up to non oily skin. Pores were good & redness was gone!

This mask is immersed in essence containing Cotton Seed Extract & Niacinamide that helps to brighten & make darker skin lighter and radiant.  Upon opening, had a strong but pleasant tangerine smell 😍😍😍 fit is good although a bit larger on the chin & head area. Texture is thick, which I really like. Kept on for almost 30 minutes.  Results in the morning: BRILLIANT! Pores were non-existent, skin tone was definitely brighter & skin was plump. Not much hydration, though, woke up to slight oily film. I got this when I was in Seoul, will repurchase.

Cute packaging containing two eye patches, placed on the under eye. Had a subtle cucumber scent. Cooling feeling that helped to relax. Results in the morning: skin around eyes felt very soft & smoother. No dark circles!

This mask sheet helps to brighten up dull & exhausted skin. Contains lycopene, an effective antioxidant that helps eliminate toxins that cause dullness & stress. What's unique about this mask sheet is that it comes in individual patches, imitating actual tomato slices that allows you to place them onto the areas you need more help with. This series also has Lemon & Cucumber.  Upon opening, had a subtle tomato juice scent but a bit more chemical-ish. The patches are different sizes so basically you decide where you want to apply them. The patches dried up quite fast so kept them on for about 15 mins only. This is my 1st time trying it & I found it a bit funny. Lots of essence left so after removing the patches, I applied it directly on skin.  Results: AMAZING! Pores actually shrunk! So amazed hahaha.. but not sure if it's a lasting effect 😂😂😂😂😂 Pretty satisfied with this mask so I may repurchase it. 

This Mask sheet in Cucumber provides moisture and nourishment while giving your skin a nice cooling effect for better relaxation. It comes in individual patches, imitating actual cucumber slices that allows you to place them onto the areas you need more help with. This series also has Lemon & Tomato.  Upon opening, had a fresh cucumber scent. The patches are different sizes so basically you decide where you want to apply them. The patches dried up quite fast so kept them on for about 15 mins only. Not much essence leftover compared to the Tomato mask I tried, but sufficient enough to apply all over skin. Results: Ultra moisturization! Skin felt so hydrated & soft. So far not disappointed with this series so I may repurchase it. 

Cute packaging containing two eye patches, placed on the under eye. Has a subtle flowery scent. Cooling feeling that helped to relax. Eyes were less swollen & skin around eyes felt smoother. Cute & works nicely - will repurchase!!!

Did a spontaneous pore gunk cleaning using the manual steel blackhead remover, so skin had some irritations & painful red patches *cry* So I chose this Innisfree mask with hope for skin calming & soothing.  Sheet is thinner than most masks; fine delicate cotton mask immersed in Vitamin C essence. Had a nice tangerine smell. Surprisingly this mask didn't dry out as fast. Kept on till I fell asleep.  Skin condition in the morning: red patches all gone but still feel some soreness around the nose area. Pores did look smaller & skin was brighter & supple. 

This mask is meant for skin lifting & regeneration of skin texture & elasticity. Roe is basically fish eggs 😂😂😂😂😂 This is my first time trying out My Beauty Diary; the mask is quite thin but has loads of essence. The smell was weird: wasn't fishy but had a bit of chemical smell. Essence was quite watery. Results in the morning: pores became smaller & skin felt softer. No breakouts as well! Will try other MBD masks.

This mask is meant for skin soothing/purifying & highly effective hydration. This mask's essence is made with T.E.N. thermal water blended with chamomile extract & black tea ferment.  T.E.N. thermal water is found in Geumjin, in the Korean peninsula. Naturally created over time & found at 1,100 metres below ground level, this water is rich in natural and rare minerals such as selenium, vanadium and zinc & has an alkalinity similar to that of the human body. These properties combined ensure greatest and most efficient absorption into the skin.  Upon opening, had a pleasant light flower & tea smell. Mask is quite thin so had to be handled carefully to avoid tears. Fit is great, almost perfect. Kept on for about 30 minutes before it started to dry out. Applied leftover essence directly onto skin.  Results in the morning: woke up to super greasy skin! Not much hydration? Just oily, blergh... I had high expectations for this mask but it's just so-so for me. Didn't cause any breakouts but there were some redness on the cheek area. Won't repurchase as it's quite pricey.

This is an older version of this mask; they have a new packaging now (if I'm not mistaken). This mask is similar to Innisfree's Second Skin Masks. It's a bio-cellulose mask that fits perfectly to face shape to maximize absorption of hibiscus seed extracts. Upon opening, there is a pleasant flowery scent that is not overpowering. Easy to apply to face, but the mouth part is a little too big. Fits easily & doesn't slide off so was able to multitask. Kept on for about 30 minutes but the mouth area dried up quite fast & started to stick hard to the skin. Results: Noticeable effects were non-oily skin & skin felt plump and moist. Not much difference to pores but no breakouts happened. Not sure if I should repurchase, somehow cotton masks make me feel more comfortable.

This activated carbon mask is designed to help cleanse pores & balances sebum production while providing hydration to reduce blemishes & post blemish marks. Upon opening, there was a pleasant plant smell. Thick mask sufficiently soaked in essence. Fit is perfect; cooling feel. Kept on until I fell asleep. Results in the morning: Man, this mask is FREAKING AWESOME. Helped to calm my skin irritations (after I did a blackhead session) & pores were almost non-existent! Skin was supple & no oily residue. LOVE THIS & will definitely repurchase!! 

Had some minor breakouts which made me start trying COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad. 1 jar has 70 pads & acts sort of like a toner/oil controller, suitable for oily & acne-prone skin. Contains natural BHA & Whitewillow Bark Tree to fix uneven skintone, control sebum & trouble care. I like how the smell is pure & non-chemical. Just take 1 pad & rub it all over your face accordingly. You can use both sides of the pad: Embossed side for pore cleaning, waste removal & moisturizing, while Soft side is peeling, increased skin density & control oil.  However, after using this (about 20 pads in), didn't have much effects on the breakouts.  Sometimes made it worse & skin texture became rougher.  Stop using it & ended up giving to friend.  Only giving it stars coz of smell & the convenience of using the pads.

The fine delicate cotton contains BHA to remove accumulated dead skin cells, leaving your skin texture feeling sleek & smooth. Sheet is thinner than most masks. Subtle but no specific kind of smell, pleasant. Mask didn't dry out as fast so kept on till I fell asleep. Love this one! Washed my face in the morning & with the help of my Etude House Magic Bubble Peeling Creamy Peeling Wash, the dead skin cells were easier to remove. Skin felt soft & smooth. Helped with the skin peeling off due to sunburn.

This mask aims to provide healthier & smoother skin texture. Upon opening, there is a pleasant herbal smell (close to flowery scent). It comes in a pair of masks for your feet, sort of like socks; plastic outer layer & cotton sheet layer inside. Kept it on for about half an hour & applied leftover essence up to the knees. It certainly does it's job: you'll get scented feet with a silky texture 💕💕💕💕💕 the scent & texture lasts the whole day even when you wash your feet. I like how it feels & will repurchase it.

This mask sheet contains Green Tea essence that helps to treat oily or problem skin more effectively. Upon opening, had a pleasant flowery smell. Mask sheet is a slightly thicker cotton sheet, but was a bit hard to unfold & did cause a tear. Kept on for about half an hour. Applied leftover essence on skin. Results: woke up to a no-oil finish! Skin was plump & not oily at all. Especially the T-Zone area! I feel it would be good to use as a day mask before going out; it will help to control sebum & shine. Will repurchase.

Tried out the famous April Skin Mummy Mud Mask. It's aim is to remove excess sebum & brighten skin. The mask has a cotton-like texture & is immersed in mud. Comes in two parts for the face; apply mouth section first & then eye section. I usually put my masks in the fridge but I forgot with this one; still felt cool but could have felt cooler. Fit is good on the forehead, slightly larger as you can see in the picture below, I had to fold a bit over, and the inner cheek area (as pictured), didn't have full coverage. There's also a slit in the mid nose which is kinda funny. Scent was subtle, no over-powering mud smell. Left it on for more than 30 minutes. Didn't dry so fast & not much tightening effect. After peeling off, could see some excess sebum on the cheek area & T-zone (does that mean my skin is getting less oily?? Yay!) & skin felt as soft like you would feel after applying a clay/mud mask manually. Would try this again coz I love mud/clay masks & this is kinda cool. Personally I still prefer manually applying mud masks for total coverage.

This mask is aimed to provide moisture & hydration to your skin & brighten dullness.  Has a strong flowery scent & mask sheet is very soft! Sticks to the skin immediately & didn't have much bubbles. Essence is nice, not too watery. Kept on for almost an hour & didn't dry up very fast. It did help to calm some of the redness, pores looked good & skin feels hydrated instead of oily.  The fit is a bit weird though; it has a large gap from the nose to the mid-cheek area & the nose part doesn't cover till the tip.

Great results! Essence is the milky type & mask was evenly soaked. Kept on for more than half an hour; dried fast on the T-zone area. Fit is excellent! What I noted most was that I didn't wake up to oily skin at all; instead skin was smooth & moisturised. Even felt the same after cleansing. Ah, too bad this series has been discontinued.

Great body lotion! Gives your skin a healthy glow & hydrates well.  Love the smell coz it's not too overpowering.  Takes a while to finish so it's really economical.  The bottle has a press nozzle so it's easy use.  Lotion texture is not too thick & absorbs fast without the sticky feeling.  Will repurchase.

This product turned from a great product to a bummer!  I was using this for almost a year; it worked great with my routine, for skin moisturisation, until one day it caused red patches to appear - and they were really itchy!  I had to re-cleanse my face again to remove all the residue, wait 24 hours until all the redness & itchiness calmed down.  Made me so scared & almost cried because of the itch.  Everyone who saw my skin mentioned how red the patches were & how my skin suddenly looked rough.  It also caused my pores to become very visible.  Somehow, it might have been a little too strong for my skin (my skin is not sensitive at all, though), and these were the delayed effects.  Needless to say, I discontinued using this product, even though it still had three quarters left.

I was very surprised with this hand cream, as a lot of TFS's products are a miss for many.  This hand cream absorbed quickly & made my hands soft & smooth.  Love the subtle sugar apple scent.  No sticky or oily residue/feeling, which is really appreciated.  Will definitely repurchase.

Love this mist!  It is light to the skin & sufficiently provides quick hydration when needed.  Easy to be brought around, especially during travels, and I usually use this as a substitute for toner.  It absorbs fast & refreshes the skin immediately.  On my lazy days, I just spray this mist over my skin after cleansing & it helps to prevent breakouts with ample moisture throughout the night.  The aloe vera scent is subtle yet you can smell the freshness of it.  This is HG worthy!

This mask contains asiatic pennywort, tea tree leaf oil & witch hazel extract to help deliver a reinforced soothing effect as well as to help calm sensitive & tired skin. Upon opening, a subtle flowery scent. This mask is a really thin wood pulp fibre cloth mask, but it stuck well to the skin & was easy to shape. Fit is PERFECT. It's shaped well around the eyes, nose & lips and had a soft texture. Kept on for 30 minutes, didn't dry fast, which is good. Results: definitely calmed down the pimples that popped up, reduced redness & smaller pores. I especially liked how perfect the fit was. Will definitely repurchase.

Bought this during Seoul trip. This is a special edition Mediheal mask made especially for Nami Island & is only sold at Nami Island.  This mask helps to improve skin tone and deep moisturize to ease dry skin problems. The charcoal mask sheet improves the effects and helps to recover skin's vitality & uses a highly concentrated formulation of natural materials, helping unbalanced skin become healthier by making it resistant to stress.  I love the thickness of both the essence & mask. Very comfortable & had a subtle smell of charcoal. Mask was soaked with essence & none left in packet. Fit is a bit small in the eye area, though. Results in the morning: skin felt really moisturized & hydrated.  I love charcoal masks & would repurchase this again if I have the chance.

Bought this during trip to Seoul. This is a special edition Mediheal mask made especially for Nami Island & is only sold at Nami Island.  This is basically a moisture-boosting ampoule mask for dry skin with natural moisturising factor (N.M.F) system to provide intense hydration containing hyaluronic acid & ceramide to seal in moisture. It is also loaded with witch hazel to shrink pores & control sebum, fill in fine lines while boosting skin vitality.  Love the thickness of both the essence & mask. Very comfortable & had a light watery smell like the rain (?). Mask was soaked with essence but not much left in packet. Fit is FANTASTIC. Results in the morning: skin tone was brighter & pores were smaller! Love love love!!!

Bought this mainly because I needed some overnight lip care.  The ingredients Honey & Milk are what attracted me to get this.  It's an affordable lip sleeping pack (in comparison to Laneige's).  Love the smell, subtle scents of milk & honey.  It helped to moisturise my lips during sleep & after using it for a few months, it somehow made my lip colour tone more even & plumper!  The one thing that I don't really like is it's stickiness; it's quite hard to wash off with only water & so you need to use your usual cleansing water/balm to remove it.  Other than that, I would really recommend this for it's price & effectiveness.

Love this cleanser!  The texture is sort of like a soft scrub & has the light colour of volcanic ash.  It effectively removes all the dirt & sebum after a long day.  Since using this cleanser, I hardly get any breakouts & makeup is removed even without double cleansing.  It smells nice, a subtle fragrance, not overpowering.  Been using this for few months & it's really economical as you only need to use a bit of it.  The after-cleanse feel is a clean, non-drying feel, and skin feels hydrated & soft.  The closest product I can compare this to is the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam, but somehow the Innisfree one left a drying feel, which I didn't really appreciate.  Highly recommended product!
