oh ho ho - another mask for my collection of mask reviews :] I feel I have reviewed so many masks that I'm becoming a little repetitive :| It's kind of funny because when people message me sometimes, their email will start off as "hey, it seems like you are obsessed with sheet masks so I was wondering...." -______- NOT UNTRUE. Sadly, there are so many sheet masks I never reviewed - mostly because I used it before taking pics/writing down my thoughts *sigh*
This is a rather short since I have gone into great detail on my previous MBD mask reviews and I don't want to repeat myself too much. Overall, this is quite simply an average sheet mask.
Purchased at: Sasa
- Brightening and firming
Mixed Berry Extract drawn out from blue berry, raspberry, cowberry and mulberry in an exceptional beauty agent that dresses skin up with vitality and charm. It protects skin from environmental aggression, correcting problems like uneven complexion, dullness and sagging. After use, skin becomes firm, bright and translucent.
- Purifying and refining
Extracts of Comfrey and Green Tea enable synergy benefit to soften cuticles. After use, skin is refined, radiant and velvety smooth.
Suitable for: For all skin types, especially skin suffers from uneven complexion, sagging or roughness.
Experience: Smells pretty nice, so wearing this was a nice experience. As usual, it fit nicely and there was no irritation. Sometimes my face warms up when I put on a sheet mask, but not this time around. It was mildly cooling, but I think that was just because I had something wet on my face and it is winter ^^ When I took it off about half an hour later, my face was plumper and brighter.
Fit: MBD always fits me very well. I feel like a broken record saying this every time >.<
Scent: Has a distinct berry-like scent. I rather liked it but the scent is so sharp it could come across as a little artificial.
Mask texture: Smooth, thin, and identical to all the other MBD masks I've reviewed. I love the thinness of these masks since they cling to your face well.
Excess serum: About a nickel amount, enough for putting on your neck.
- Uneven complexion - at least temporarily yes. I used a box of 10 over 1-2 months, but I tend to alternate masks so I can't say if this mask really lightened my scars.
- Sagging/Roughness - I think 90% of the sheet masks I use do this. In any case, this is a moisturizing mask that gives your skin a nice kick of moisture. Consequently, your face does seem softer and plumper for several hours.
Still not one of my super favorites; this falls in the category of "nice to have/try, but I'd rather try something new if I have the choice." It definitely works - your face becomes more radiant, brighter, and moisturized after using it. The next morning, makeup always goes on more smoothly. However, at the same time, this is not a particularly cooling nor the most moisturizing mask I have ever used. So, my ultimate recommendation is actually....pass. There are better sheet masks out there that have more dramatic results.
Fyi, I have given up on judging the "long term" value of sheet masks because there are so many outlying factors. The sheet masks I continue to re-purchase are the ones that make me look the most radiant the next morning.
