My Beauty Diary (MBD) originates from Taiwan and their facial sheet
masks are a huge hit in Asia. I started using MBD masks when I was in
the UK and always have several boxes as back up.
Today I'll be reviewing the Mixed Berry Mask.
Functions: Brightening and firming
It's really moisturising, like most of the other MBD masks. My skin feels hydrated and has the toing! toing! effect after each application.
After remoing the sheet, I massage the leftover essence into my skin and it absorbs pretty quickly and doesn't leave a sticky feeling. It completely sinks into my skin.
Even if it's just a temporary effect, my skin definitely feels softer and smoother!
No break outs.
I dislike the smell. The scent reminds me very strongly of medicine, specifically antibiotics. Yuck! I literally had to force myself to use these masks and I was super glad when it came to the final sheet. This is just personal preference though and scents are very subjective.
The brightening and firming effects aren't very obvious and if any, are only temporary, anyway.
How I use it:
1) Cleanse face
2) Apply sheet mask for 20-30 minutes
3) Remove sheet mask
4) Gently massage the remaining essence on my face until fully absorbed
5) Apply moisturiser to seal in the essence
I'm a firm fan of My Beauty Diary masks, but I definitely wouldn't be re-purchasing this only because of the scent. I know many people say they love the smell of this mask, but it just didn't cut it for me. And yes, I'm very sure the ones I bought aren't fake nor expired.
Please note that there are plenty of fake My Beauty Diary masks (and other cosmetics and skincare items for that matter) out there. So do get them from reliable sources as you don't want to be messing with your skin.
