This is my fourth set of My Beauty Diary sheet masks, and yes, they do meet my expectations - performing well to give my skin that brighter, smoother, and softer sensation after usage. However the Apple Polyphenol is not one of my favourites, simple because I prefer hydrating sheet masks over oil controlling or pore tightening masks.
These masks do make my skin tingle a little after I put them on - most likely an indication of the pore tightening ingredients working its magic on my skin. I generally wear sheet masks when I want to relax and hydrate my skin, so I don't really appreciate the slight itch.
And, similar to the Strawberry Yoghurt sheet masks I tried before, these masks did cause some slight, temporary redness. Again, that's probably due to the pore tightening ingredients, and also because my skin type is quite easily prone to redness. Despite this, I think sensitive skin types can still use them - maybe just ensure that you don't go over the recommended 20-30 minute timeline, and maybe rinse the serum off instead of letting it absorb.
- as with other MBD variants, skin feels hydrated, fresh and super smooth after use
- a nice and refreshing apple juice scent
- can feel some pore/skin tightening (a tingling sensation)
- I have a feeling oily skin types would really like this!
- generous amount of serum left over - good for neck and elbows
- sometimes it causes some slight itchiness
- seems to cause some temporary redness for me
- would require repeat and constant usage to see a permanent change in size of pores
So, if you're looking for a sheet mask that works well on oilier skin tones, or skin with visible pores, this Apple Polyphenol mask may be what you want. I really like the apple scent too - it really has a summery feeling, lol.
