About a little over a week ago I did a review on My Beauty Diary and its moisturizing aloe mask (which if you recall what I said: it was like my face was having an orgasm). They're found here (aloe mask) and here (My Beauty Diary Top 5 Best Sellers Pack).

This past Friday I went ahead and tried the Pearl mask.


From memorabledays-x3.blogspot.com since I was too lazy to take my own picture

Refer to the package all the way on the left with the bows on it. I know the old packaging doesn't necessarily have bows on them. I used to be plain white.



According to My Beauty Diary, it's supposed to be a whitening mask that softens the look of your skin and restores dull and damaged skin. The research I've done on this mask indicates that it doesn't actually whiten your skin, but more accurately brightens it. It's also fact that it's all the rage in Asia to consume pearl powder to improve beauty, but note that it's never been proven that applying pearl powder topically will improve skin.

Same with the last mask, these are relatively affordable (compared to other masks; price breakdown in the aloe mask review). The packaging was very nice. It has a very pleasant smell and its very easy to apply. Quote: "When I took the mask out of its packet it was very nicely hydrated. No excess serum was left on the bottom of the packet, yet the mask was sufficiently soaked with it." Also: "It comes with slits as many beauty masks do and from what I can see it can conform to many face shapes and sizes. It's very very slightly stretchy if you need to stretch it in a few places (for example: eyes or nose area), but overall there's not much stretching that needs to be done." Like other My Beauty Diary masks, you can massage the excess serum that gets onto your hands from application onto your neck and hands.

Quick Tip #1

I choose to applying this mask this week because due to stress my skin had started turning a bit yellow (Asian genes popping right out). Overall it was very dull. I thought the pearl mask would be the perfect solution.

What do I think of this mask? Well, it's tingly (in a nice way) like the aloe mask, but I don't get QUITE as much of a cooling sensation. It stays on quite nicely even though I sat up for the duration that I had the mask on (I hate masks that slide right off the face). When removed I could visibly see that a lot of the yellow sheen that I had to my skin was gone. By the next morning the majority of the yellowness had disappeared. I agree with other users that this mask doesn't exactly whiten the skin: it brightens it. HOWEVER, note that this was from one use. Continued use might actually help whiten your skin.
