As you know I’m quite the fan girl when it comes to My Beauty Diary Face Masks so when Face Q (made by the same company) started popping up on the scene I made double sure to haul a few boxes and see what all the hype was about.
If you’ve never used a face mask they are truly a treat. Sadly, the Western market hasn’t quite caught the facial mask bug and they aren’t something you’d easily have access to at your drugstore unlike Asia where they are available at both high end counters with large price tags and drugstore for mere pennies.
Let’s take a look at the Face Q Peony, Snow and Sake Yeast Whitening Masks.
I purchased a box of Face Q Peony, Snow and Sake Yeast Whitening Masks a few months ago for obvious reasons, WHITENING! My dull, dehydrated Winter skin could definitely use a pick me up and these were a welcome addition to my facial mask stash.
I was a tad put off by these as I’m not keen on full facial and neck masks. Basically they not only wrap around your face but your upper neck and throat as well. But turns out the fit is perfect and it fits the contour of my face and neck brilliantly. The mask has ear loops which allows the mask to fit snug around your face and your neck. The fit is very comfortable and I really like how the mask adheres perfectly to my face so the essence can easily sink in without dripping all over the place. Each mask is saturated nicely with lotion that’s both moisturizing and hydrating although I admit that some Face Q masks leave my face a tad tight after use.
Face Q Peony, Snow Lotus and Sake Yeast Whitening Mask contains peony and snow lotus as two of the main ingredients which supposedly have anti-aging benefits as well as whitening ones. It promises to brighten and whiten your skin while repairing and moisturizing skin.
I’m on my second box and can’t say it whitened my skin but it does brighten it, soften it, and keeps it less than dull. As far as anti-aging that remains to be seen. I did get a tight feeling after but following up with moisturizer definitely helps.
If you’ve never used an facial mask before it’s pretty fun and very relaxing. Each mask is individually wrapped so you simply tear open the package, remove the mask, and place it on your face. In this case you can use wrap the ear loops around your ears to hold the mask snug to your face. Now sit around for 20-30 or more minutes and allow the mask to do the work. Each mask is made of a heavier cotton which is saturated in essence/lotion so it’ll feel kinda wet and cold on your skin. I normally sit around with it on my face for an hour and proceed to pat my skin after use and allow the product to sink in.
That’s about it!
You’ll wake up with beautiful skin in the AM or sometimes you can see almost instant results with some masks.
If you like My Beauty Diary masks I do suggest trying out Face Q. They have a very comfortable fit and the product seems to work quite well overall although some formulations of the mask do leave a bit of a tight feeling behind.
I purchased mine from Sasa a while back ago and replenished my stock by swapping with a reader who lives in Taiwan. However, Sasa no longer carries them but I do recommend Imomoko who sells a box of 10 for $15.99 where I recently purchased a few from.
Have you tried Face Q Facial Masks?
