My Beauty Diary Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Mask Review
Happy Mask Monday! This week, I'm reviewing the My Beauty Diary Hyaluronic Acid masks. I've been using My Beauty Diary (MBD) masks for a few years now but I didn't get around to try their Hyaluronic Acid masks until late 2015. I didn't try the HA masks until late 2015 because they didn't really excite me. Plus, most sheet masks are moisturizing on top of their other skincare properties, so I didn't feel the need to buy masks that only focused on moisture. However, late last year I picked up a box to try because they were on sale. Now that I'm nearing the end of that box, I thought I'd share my thoughts on it.
My Beauty Diary Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Mask
box of 10 masks,

The masks are formulated with hyaluronic acid, various fruit extracts, and herbal extracts. Together, these ingredients helps to enhance the skin by facilitating micro-circulation, purification and moisturization of dry skin.

Packaging: I bought a special edition mask box which comes with 11 masks instead of the normal 10. The packaging is the same format as most MBD masks and comes with a lot of information which includes the ingredient list. The box comes with an authenticity sticker on the side, which can be used to check the mask's authenticity.
Scent: I had a hard time picking up a scent for this mask. The scent is very faint, like it's hardly there. It's like a light morning dew on leaves mixed with light floral notes kind of scent. It's crisp, fresh and really subtle. It reminds me of a super mild version of my foam hand wash, which is the Bath & Body Works Rainkissed Leaves by the way. Fragrance is added to this mask.
Color: The essence is colorless and the sheet mask is white.
Texture: The essence of these sheet masks are the same as other MBD masks. It's liquidy but not as thick as serums. The mask sheet is the same as other MBD masks. The sheet is soft and easily tear-able. It adheres to the skin nicely.
|Authenticity Sticker is found on the side of the mask box. Instructions on how to check the authenticity of MBD masks can be found in the review of the Imperial Bird's Nest masks.|
Michelle's Thoughts: I didn't know if I would like this mask or not when I got it. However, after giving a couple a try, it was easy to see that it would land in my decent pile. This isn't a super amazing mask but I do like its moisturizing effects for the winter times. For my combo to oily skin, this mask's moisturizing properties are enough. The mask provides my skin with a boost of hydration without making my skin produce excess sebum (which happens sometimes when a product is too moisturizing for my skin). The mask leaves my skin feeling hydrated and moisturized. It works well at keeping the moisture in and makes my skin feel soft after each use. I do like the scent of this mask as well. It's light and pleasant. Like most MBD masks, these My Beauty Diary Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Masks comes with lots of left over essence. I usually apply the left over essence as a light moisturizer over my body or apply it on my face and neck that following morning. It's not enough for a second mask session but there's no point in wasting it.
The main downside for this mask is its fit. As you can see in the image below, I tore apart the sheet mask so it can fit my face better. The overall fit is so-so but the cut is always the issue for me. I just end up making my own cuts on the masks and it helps with the fit a lot.
-one size fits all mask, might not fit everyone well
My Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ♡
Final Thoughts: I think I was right, this mask does not excite me. It does a decent job moisturizing my skin but it's not a mask that I feel like I must have in my stash. I'm on my last one right now and I don't feel the need to stock up on it anytime soon. Since I have a lot of masks that offer multiple skincare properties, this masks just doesn't feel on par with those.
Would I purchase it in the future? Maybe. I'm in no rush to repurchase it anytime soon. However, if shops has awesome deals on this mask again, I might just pick up a box. Do I think this is worth a try? Maybe. If you are looking for an exciting mask that offers multiple skincare effects, this is probably not the mask. However, if you are just looking for a moisturizing mask that's inexpensive as well, then definitely check out this mask.
