Review: My Beauty Diary Masks

I've been using the masks religiously for the past few days and guess what?
THEY BROKE ME OUT!

My Beauty Diary Masks

I wish that they would be fantastic for me but the bad news is I'm getting small red bumps on my right cheeks. ARGHHHHH..... 

Anyway here's what I think about the mask..


1. Apple Polyphenol Mask (Hydrating, Tightening, Pore Minimizing)
I dislike the smell of this mask. It kinda reminds me of apple cider. But I liked how it felt on my face when I first put it on. It was very refreshing (since I took it out from the fridge and it was cold). After I took it off, I noticed that my pores did sorta minimize a little. Sad part was this actually cause little red bumps on my face. I feel so frustrated. =(
Rating: 3/5

2. Bulgarian White Rose Mask ( Whitening)
This was the mask that I was most excited about. It is said to have whitening/brightening effects which is something I badly need right now. The smell of the mask was okay. Again, I liked how refreshing all these masks are. However, for this particular mask, I did not see any brightening effects as it claimed. Utterly disappointing! Oh, this mask also added those red bumps on my face. I shouldn't continue testing out the mask after the initial one broke me out....I know...I'm very brave right? So brave that i feel like smacking myself... Haha..

3. Q10 Rejuvenating Mask (Brightening, Tightening)
Out of 3 masks that I've tested, this is the one I liked the MOST! The smell was good and I liked the after effect of the mask. This mask really did soften and brighten up my face. It also did sorta minimize my pores! I think I will repurchase this just to test out to see whether it'll break me out again. It will be such a shame to only give one chance to such a good mask.

If not for the fact that the masks broke me out, I would definitely rate them higher. This is so darn sad! If you wanna know how the packaging looks like, check this post

  11. Sorry to hear about your break outs but maybe you don't have to be too worry about it! Cuz sometimes you break out cuz of all the deep dirt that was underneath you skin are trying to come out. so that is why you break up. Just stop the mask for now and I'm sure you will be okie ones the break out wears out!
    hope your skin gets better :(

  13. oh no :(! I'm so sorry u broke out :( I know what it feels like to be so excited about something only to be disappointed...(stupid hope in a jar). I actually liked the apple poly mask though I do think it's "not gentle." I agree with the CoQ10 mask tho - that one irritated my face, I didn't break out but I got red :\

    tbh the best mask I've tried so far is the Skinfood Vita-a gel mask and silk whitia soy milk mask. Both are for sensitive skin so maybe that's why....we may both have really sensitive skin :(
