My Beauty Diary Mask: Chocolate Truffle + Earl Grey Tea & Macaron

Thanks to Stephanie, I was able to try two sheets of beauty diary mask, chocolate truffle mask and earl grey tea & macaron mask. And yea, I'm here to write a quick review of the yummiest mask ever!


chocolate truffle ingredients

ChocolateTruffle Mask Description:
My Beauty Diary Chocolate Truffle Sheet Mask moisturizes and softens the face in 20 minutes.
The mask is made of carefully selected, quality cocoa bean extract from the southern part of Caribbean Sea and very precious truffle extract from the northern part of Italy. Cocoa beans give miraculously moisturizing and defending power while truffle provides deep nourishment and hydration. The combination makes skin feel very watery, silky and alluring.
Beta-Glucan, extracted from the endosperm of oat, together with rice protein, sinks deep into dry skin and continuously moisturizes. In addition, milk protein soothes and moisturizes excellently. The mask quenches the thirst of skin, leaving skin very comfortable, watery and elastic to the touch.
Suitable for normal skin, it is recommended for skin that tends to be dehydrated and skin with poor elasticity.

My comment:
Remember my old post about DIY Cacao Mask? If you want to skip all the hassle in making DIY cacao mask then buying My beauty diary Chocolate Truffle mask would be a great idea. It still contains all the benefit of cacao bean. It has a very tasty and yummy smell, imagine the rich smell of freshly baked chocolate muffin!

I absolutely love its sweet smell, which always entice me to lick the mask, lolz. But no I'd never do that of course, sweet smell bitter taste. =P~ But aside from the smell, I don't really like the result. The essence is too thick and it stays on the surface of my skin and absorbs very very slowly, leaving a sticky sensation on my face. aweee~ Bear in mind that I have an oily skin. I have to re-wash my face with water after use, though, once washed, I can feel my skin is hydrated, plumper, and softer. So yea, recommended for dry/normal skin, if you have oily skin type like me, just skip this mask. ('◇')ゞ

 


 So much serum! it keeps dripping~

Thin, but strong tissue.

Earl Grey Tea & Macaron Description:
My Beauty Diary Earl Grey Tea & Macaron Sheet Mask illuminates and clarifies the face in 20 minutes.
The combination of black tea ferment and bergamot essential oil gives a miraculously brightening effect. It brightens dull and yellowish skin tone, leaving skin briskly clear, fair and flawless.
Sweet almond protein and sugar cane extract are mixed to leave skin glittering and translucent, smooth and delicate. The fruit extracts of rosa canina, blueberry and acerola leave skin fair and perfectly clear, enhancing the skin’s translucency and ability to defend.
Suitable for normal skin, it is recommended for dull skin without lustre.


My Comment:
I personally like the name because it sounds cute! Earl grey tea and macaron, okay, feel like eating macarons now( ̄(エ) ̄)y. While writing this post I'm actually craving for chocolate muffins, macarons, and a cup of tea~ daaarn. Okay, the smell of this mask isn't as rich and sweet as the chocolate truffle's. Smell like a sweet tea with a drop of lemony juice in it.

Greatest combo: Macarons X tea!
This mask is supposed to give you a brighter radiance (it contains arbutin), and after I let the mask stay on my face for about 30minutes, I noticed that my face complexion has become slightly brighter. But still, I need to re-wash my face with water becase the essence is too thick to be absorbed, dang my oily skin!

All in all, I think beauty diary masks line are a little bit too fancy for those who are serious about skincare. They added too many fragrances (even though it smells like heaven lolz)  and additives substances (like butylene glicol, etc) Oh well, you can find butylene/propylene glycol in many skincare products, but yeaaa.....ヽ(  ̄д ̄;)ノ One or two masks from My Beauty Diary won't hurt~ ^-^

  1. I like MBD because they're the cheapest masks I've come across! :3 I have oily skin too, but I just let it sit and after another 30 minutes once I take the mask off, it seems to absorb...It hasn't broken me out so I think it's okay. ~
    Thanks for sharing your input on these two masks though. :)

  2. I'm always scared of masks with fragrances >< even such lovely fragrances like "Chocolate truffle." I have sensitive skin, so I always have to be overly cautious -.-

    Regardless, this is a great review ^^ thanks for sharing Lina~
