When I was 12 or so I kept a diary. I remember it was a small pink Hello Kitty Diary with a lock and key. Of course, I wrote everything that was of great import in my life at the time in it. At 12 I imagine it was some serious stuff. When I was 18 or so I recall reading back into it and smiling at the babblings of my 12 year old self. Granted, I had to literally splice open the journal to get inside because lord knows where I put the bloody key and honestly why I wanted to lock away any of those babblings is beyond me.
I’ve since grown up and in some ways my diary has become Musings of a Muse but I guess the closest I get to an actual diary these days are My Beauty Diary Masks.
As you know from my past reviews I’m a fond fan of My Beauty Diary Masks. I got quite a few e-mails after my reviews asking after the best masks for brightening and whitening which prompted this post.
Since the line is overwhelming with ALOT of variety it’s sometimes difficult picking the best mask for your skin or the best mask to address your issue. In this case, readers wanted to know the best masks to choose for whitening and brightening skin. This happens to be one of my own main concerns and an easy enough question to answer since I too, want brighter, whiter skin and an escape from dullness brought on by age, the weather, free radicals, etc…..In this case I recommend trying out two packs from My Beauty Diary.
My Beauty Diary Whitening Mask Set contains a total of 13 sheets with four varieties of masks for whitening skin. You’ll get the following masks:
- 4 x My Beauty Diary Japanese Cherry Blossom Masks
A mask that whitens and refreshes. Japanese Somei-Yoshino Cherry Extract whitens, soothes and firms. Blended with Extracts of Lemon and Kiwi, it refreshes and softens skin. Soaked in thread of Sakura aroma, skin appears whiter. Extracts of Arnica and Aloe soothe, repair and nourish skin. After use, skin glows with freshness.
- 4 x My Beauty Diary Black Pearl Masks
Whitens skin and restores elasticity for skin. Good for all skin types but particularly for dull skin in need of hydration. Ultimate whitening complex composed of black pearl extracts which is a beauty ingredient containing amino acid. Blended with marine and botanical essences, it activates skin’s natural hydrating and whitening mechanism, leaving skin silky and radiant. Natural vitamin C extracted from pineapple, rum and cucumber boosts metabolism and removes dead skin for fine, refresh, moist and whiten skin. Deep nourishment restores skin’s elasticity. Skin is revitalized after use.
- 4 x My Beauty Diary Red Vine Masks
Whitens, tightens skin and fights against oxidization. Contains polyphenols in Flavonoid serves as an effective antioxidant to fight against free radicals.
- 1 x My Beauty Diary White Peony Tea Mask
Formulated with White Peony Tea Leaf Extract, Peony Essence and Arbutin to maintain healthy, translucent and white skin.
On some levels brightening could be considered the same as whitening or can be treated in a similar fashion. For me it’s two different things. In cases of whitening I want my skin to look whiter, smoother where as brightening I’m looking to erase dullness and signs of fatigue.
My Beauty Diary Brightening Mask Set also contains 13 sheet masks but addresses the concern of brightening dull, tired skin versus whitening skin. Particularly great for tired, dull, dehydrated skin. You’ll get the following masks with this set:
- 4 x My Beauty Diary Aloe Mask
Provides extreme hydration to dry skin. Repairs skin with natural aloe extracts and contains various vitamins which provide moisture and nourishment. Rose essence is contained to repair dry and rough skin. Revitalizes with seaweed-yeast complex containing rich amino acid and microelements to nourish skin.
- 4 x My Beauty Diary Bulgarian White Rose Mask
Contains Bulgarian White Rose hydrosol, it soothes and hydrates tired skin. Blended with licorice and kiwi essence, it whitens and nourishes skin, for bright, fine, and whiter skin.
- 4 x My Beauty Diary Natto Mask
Enriched with Natto extract, which contains isoflavones to prevent formation of free radicals, reducing the appearance of all signs of aging, such as wrinkles, dulness, etc…
1 x My Beauty Diary Platinum Nanocolloid Mask
Hydrates, whitens skin while reducing the appearance of lines.
Each set features a variety of masks for treating dull, lackluster skin in need of extra hydration. Any skin type can use these but those with dull skin will experience the best results. Don’t be worried or scared of trying a whitening mask as it’s not going to take your skin tone down on any visible level but it will create a more fresher appearance for those with tired, drawn out skin. I particularly love the “themed” collections from My Beauty Diary as they address a single issue but with multiply masks to choose from to address the issue. Box sets are $16 on Sasa and come with 13 masks which breaks them down to around $1.23 or so per a mask. A dollar and change for the mask isn’t a bad deal at all as you will see visible results which the masks particularly if you’ve never used sheet masks before.
What is a sheet mask?
It’s a heavily saturated mask which shapes to your face like a mask with holes cut out for nose, eyes, etc….you’ll leave the mask on anywhere from 15 minutes to an entire hour if you want. I normally leave them on 60 minutes so all the wonderful essence is soaked up by my skin.
If you’re looking for a solution for your dull skin I highly suggest trying out the Brightening and Whitening range from My Beauty Diary.
