According to the Sasa website description, all the main ingredients in this mask aim to mosturise, hydrate, nourish and promote skin elasticity. MBD reccomends to leave the mask on for 20-30 minutes, but sometimes I go longer to get that extra boost of hydration. Of course if you have sensitive skin, you should just go the 20 minutes.
You can choose to rinse the serum off after the treatment, or like me you can let it absorb into the skin. I always use the masks before bed, and the next morning my skin feels so soft and smooth~
Isn't the packaging is adorable? Each mask sheet is individually packaged in foil packets. Some people like to put their packets in the fridge before using, for an extra cooling and refreshing sensation.
There's quite a generous amount of serum on the mask, so I always use the excess to apply to my neck and elbows.
Here's a pic of what a sheet mask is shaped like, for those who don't know. I already used the mask though, this is just the template.
The shape should be a good fit for the majority of people. Not too small, nor big. I did find the lip area too low, so I often snip from the cupid's bow towards the nose, and fold the sheet so I don't have to constantly have serum smear on my lips.
- generous amount of serum
- good value
- super soft and smooth skin over the next day or so
- some brightening effect
- adorable packaging
- other masks in the MBD range will offer multiple benefits, while this one just focuses on hydrating
- scent is a bit artificial
- can't eat without dislodging the mask - can that count as a con?
If you're only after a mask that will hydrate the skin, you might like this. If you're after hydration plus other benefits such as whitening/brightening, pore tightening, blemish reducing etc, then it's worth checking out other masks in the MBD range. I've also been using the Strawberry Yogurt type so I'll review that shortly, too.
Since this box is nearly finished I'm going to be ordering more MBD masks soon. The only problem is deciding which to try first since there are so many different types! I heard the black pearl one is good, so I'll probably try that, but any other recommendations?
Hope everyone has a good Easter break ^^
My family will be gathering on Good Friday for dinner, but I don't think we have any other special plans. How bout everyone else?
