This new mask is from their Fantasy Land series. It is made of ultra thin invisible silk and is 1/3 thinner than regular mask. Sensitive to smell will like this one. It absolutely smells nothing. Not cooling though. However, I loved this second skin fit. Finish was matte with absolutely no sticky residue. I didn't feel any firming but my skin looked even and vibrant.
You’ve heard of My Beauty Diary, now meet Sister Diary! They’re also a Taiwanese Beauty brand with a specific focus on sheet masks ♥️ I received both the Black Pearl Q10 and Pearl Bird’s Nest masks to try. They’re packaged a lot smaller than traditional sheet masks, which makes them ultra cute 😚
I loved how thin the cotton of the masks were — if you’re not careful, you can very easily rip it! Most Taiwanese sheet masks are absolutely thicksass, so this was a welcome surprise 💕
The formula is thin and serum-like, and doesn’t leave a sticky residue. However, it does have a strong fragrance, so if your skin is reactive to perfume I’d advise you to be extra careful and read the ingredients!
The sheet mask did sting the sensitised skin of my cheeks, but calmed after a few seconds. I left it on for about half an hour, after which my skin felt much brighter, bouncier and hydrated. The results weren’t miraculous, but then again, most sheet masks don’t do that lol so I’m not disappointed. The next time I get a chance, I’d love to try the rest of the range too 😍
The masks are also alcohol and paraben-free, which is always a big plus 🙌🏻
CLAIMS : "Deeply hydrates the skin with a unique moisturizing formula, delivering a beautiful, healthy glow.
MASK TYPE : It is cotton material soaked in clear and watery essence. There are a white plastic protective film to help open up the sheetmask.
MY SKIN TYPE : Combination-dehydrated skin
Upon opening there was a fresh scent, the fit and adherence was great. There was enough leftover essence to apply my neck and arms. No skin irritations while the mask was on. I had the mask on for 20 minutes, and the edge were beginning to dry out. After taking it off, the essence absorbed into my skin to a matte and non sticky finish. Right away my skin was really hydrated. Overall I had no problem with this mask, so I really like this mask. The packaging is so beautiful and reminds me of summer waves.
I used the #annieswayCharcoal Black Jelly Mask which I purchased from @mystylingbox and on their website it says it effectively controls oil, deep cleaning and whitening the skin. It also draws out oil, dirt, toxins, softens and hydrates skin leaving it firm and smooth. The jelly helps eliminate redness, calm and renew skin.
Some of the main ingredients are Charcoal Powder with it's strong absorbability and activeness. Charcoal Powder can buff out dead skin cells, leaving skin smooth and pores cleaner; Licorice Root Extract helps diminish discoloration and hyperpigmentation, regulates the skin's oil production, fights inflammation and signs of aging; Sodium Hyaluronate, anti-aging benefits, retains skin moisture and keeps collagen synthesis up. ...
🌹The mask comes in a 40 ml clear plastic package and because of the packaging I found it hard to read the ingredients and directions. It comes with a giant spatula so it is easier and less messy when removing the product and applying it. I didn't notice a scent and it has a thick consistency. It feels like and looks like jelly but it isn't watery so there is no dripping and it doesn't feel sticky. 🌹My skin type is normal-oily, dehydrated and acne-prone. After cleansing my skin, I used the spatula to apply the jelly mask evenly and approximately 0.3-0.5cm thickness all over my face, it felt very cooling and soothing. I left it on for 30 minutes, then used the spatula to gently but firmly scrape off the jelly mask, next I rinsed my face with lukewarm water and I kept repeating this until all the jelly was off. On the spatula I saw all the gunk and grits it had removed (gross but oddly satisfying). Then I continued on with my skincare routine. 🌹This mask was amazeballs, my skin looked instantly a lot brighter and my redness was gone. It felt hydrated, softer and smoother. It definitely decreased my oiliness, cleansed my pores and brightened my skin. 🌹I'm so impressed with my results after one use of this product that I will purchase it in the jar from now on!!!
Some of the ingredients it contains are Hematite Extract, stimulates Collagen synthesis to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and pores, provides skin with minerals it needs to help tighten and strengthen skin; Epilobium Angustifolium Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract (Fireweed or Willow Herb) has soothing and antioxidant effects on skin; Soluble Collagen is thought to penetrate skin better, rich in Amino Acids, delivers deep nourishment to skin to increase elasticity and firmness; Sodium Hyaluronate holds up to 1000x it's weight in water, has anti-aging benefits, retains skin moisture and keeps Collagen synthesis up.
🌹The sheetmask features an outer gold foil layer and a black inner layer to deliver nutrient-rich essence more effectively for better absorption by skin. It comes as 2 pieces so it is easy to apply and adjust. When I removed the mask from the packet it was saturated in a beautiful floral scented essence and it fit and adhered perfectly.
🌹I left the mask on for the recommended amount of time and it was still damp when I removed it. I then patted the excess essence into my skin and I was surprised how quickly it completely absorbed to a semi-matte finish. There was a lot of essence left in the packet which I put in the fridge to use the next day. 🌹It left my skin feeling really moisturized, hydrated, firmer, refreshed and plumper. My skin had a lovely healthy glow and my redness was diminished. I also love that the effects lasted all day and my makeup went on smoothly over it. 🌹This mask was awesome and I would definitely repurchase.

🌸 Fit: Have you ever realized how ill-fitting the masks you've been using lately are, after you finally use one that fits your face perfectly? That is this mask for me. 👏🏻 There's a bit of tenting near the bridge of my nose, but otherwise this fits and adheres really well. It's a bit on the bigger side, so larger faces rejoice!
🌸 Essence: Lots of thin, watery essence. 💧💧💧
🌸 Scent: Sort of herbal/yeasty. Pleasant, and not overwhelming. 👃🏻
🌸 Results: I'm still over here waiting on a #Naruko product I don't like. ✌🏻 This mask was so pleasant to use, and soothed my stressed skin with a cooling/tingling feeling the entire time I wore it. I removed it after about 45 minutes, and my skin looked noticeably brighter, more radiant, and even, and the pores on my cheeks/nose/forehead looked noticeable smaller. 😍😍😍 I am looooving the healthy glow this mask gave my skin - 🔟 out of 🔟, I'll definitely be picking up more asap!
🍳 Effects: There's approximately 0% English on the packaging, so I'm going to assume this mask is hydrating, for, you know, obvious reasons.

🍳 Essence: Lots of thin, watery essence. 💧
🍳 Scent: Typical clean, unassuming mask scent.

This MBD is an eye mask that has a unique shape/fit and this time comfortable & adhered nicely. It has plenty of essence that is nearly unscented & lasted about 15-20 minutes or so. I used this before my skincare steps to have better guage on the results.
I was not disappointed, my eye area was plump, any visible fine lines/darkness appeared less visible & my under eye area just looked more bright & awake. I would be happy to add some of these to my stash. I'm rating this an 8/10.
This was the My Scheming Blackhead removal 3 step pack.
Step one was a cloth nose mask which featured papaya enzyme. (I would've preferred a BHA) the second step was the charcoal mud mask which was meant to be applied, let dry and then peeled off. Then the last step is another cloth nose mask which was meant to help close off the nose pores featuring alcohol and witch hazel as the astringent ingredients.
Overall it was just okay, it would be better to add some BHA to your nose during part one since the peel off portion didn't get much other than some skin flakes. This peel off pack was very gentle though, so I feel like even more delicate/sensitive skin types might be ok with it.
No discernible scent to speak of, lots of essence though and I wore it for around 25 minutes. It was cooling on my hot skin, though I did feel a slight stinging sensation around my hairline and my cheeks. I don't want to say this was entirely down to the mask because my skin has been playing up all day today.
After removal, my skin didn't really look much different. Some areas looked slightly redder. Esepcially my hairline by my forehead. My skin did feel hydrated but honestly, that was about it.
