Last time I wrote you about My Beauty Diary’s Christmas pack that I bought lately. I already did a review on Black Pearl mask from this set. Today I will review another mask: My Beauty Diary Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Mask.
As usual (like any kind of sheet masks) this mask comes in a one-time-use sachet. It is a sheet mask that you apply on your face. It is soaked with some kind of an essence or a gel. You have to keep it on for 20-30 minutes and then massage whatever’s left of this gel into your skin.
When you live in a hot humid climate you would think your skin doesn’t need a lot of hydration. At least, that’s what I used to think. But it turned out to be not true: as it is so hot and humid, you’re always hot. You’re always sweating and thus your skin gets dehydrated really fast. So I thought this mask could fix it. I mean, unlike the other My Beauty Diary masks, the purpose of this one is clear: hyaluronic acid is the best hydrator. Besides, it helps your skin retain moisture. Sounds great to me!
I applied this mask after another cleansing mask – Avene Cleanance. I enjoyed the relaxation and cooling effect of this mask for about 35 mins and then I massaged it into my face. My hand felt dry after massaging the resting gel into my face which is weird as my face felt hydrated. Because the mask is too small for my face there was some product that got into my eyes and irritated them but this feeling was gone after couple a of minutes. Except for that, the mask smells nice and fresh and feels nice, hydrating and cool on the skin. I needed to apply a cream after this mask but my skin did feel more hydrated than normal.
Here is the before photo:
Here is the photo that I took after I removed the mask and before application of my cream:
I don’t see any difference between the two pictures! The mask was nice and hydrating, my skin did feel softer but that was it. No super hydration. I was a tiny bit disappointed after the Black Pearl mask which I liked a lot. I mean, it is not bad but not wow either. I hope the other masks in the set will be better!
Overall note: B.
Where can you buy it:
I bought mine in a small shop in a shopping mall in Guangzhou, China. But recently I’ve spotted them also in Watsons (it is a drugstore network here). You can also order them at sasa.com
