My Beauty Diary has a new range of sheet masks that were released several months ago entitled Blooming of Beauty. These masks are a new range that are supposedly more effective than the the masks in the general catalog. They also sport a thinner material that allows the essence to be absorbed more easily into the skin.
Since I wanted to try the entire range of masks in the Blooming Beauty Collection I decided to get a the My Beauty Dairy Blooming of Beauty Mask Package Set.
Let’s have a look!
Sheet masks are a common staple in the Asian skincare world and are pretty much available at all beauty shops and drugstores throughout Asia.
Sadly, the craze doesn’t extend to the Western market and as much as I’d love to be able to walk into my local CVS and grab a cheap box of sheet masks…well…it probably won’t happen.
If you’ve never used a sheet mask before they are actually pretty amazing and very worth exploring. I actually have had to yank myself away from using them nightly. I’m cutting myself back to twice a week but at one time I was all about doing a mask a night as I really love the results. Each mask is saturated in a lotion/essence and has cut outs for your eyes, nose, and mouth. You simply lay the mask on your face (most are a perfect fit and adhere to your face like a second skin) and proceed to relax for 20 minutes or more (I like to leave them on an hour if I have the time).
My Beauty Diary Blooming of Beauty Mask Package contains a set of 12 Masks. I purchased it off of Sasa several months ago but Imomoko has it available as well. The set is $24.99 so you’re looking at $2 per a mask or so. This is vastly overpriced compared to the original Taiwanese retail but by US standards it is pretty inexpensive overall.
The set includes:
- Lily Mask
- Damask Rose Ice Cream
The masks don’t smell like their flower namesakes in my opinion but have a pretty fresh, clean scent so if you’re worried about a cloying floral scent, no worries you won’t get that.
They are made out of considerably thinner cotton than the original Beauty Diary Collection and they adhere quite nicely to my face. I actually like the thinner sheet as it seemed to allow the essence to absorb more easily into my skin.
The masks are suitable for all skin types and each addresses certain skincare issues which I’ve listed below.
- Tulip (Smoothing, Firming)
- Phalaenopsis (Whitening)
- Lily (Whitening, Soothing)
- Hydrangea (Oil Control)
- Sunflower (Extremely Moisturizing)
I haven’t tried Hydrangea as of yet since my skin is fairly dry but I’ll make use of it in the Summer when I get a bit more oily however the other masks all work very well. I’m particularly enamored with Sunflower which really hydrates skin crazily and I’ve since ordered a box of these on their own.
These are a bit more expensive with a bit less product than the regular My Beauty Diary range (5 masks per a box versus 10 in the regular range) but they do seem a step above the normal range and well worth picking up! Although I’m true to the original line I just might toe the line here and start purchasing these instead…!
Loves ’em lots!
I recommend a purchase on these particularly the Sunflower if you have super dry skin.
Anyone try the Blooming of Beauty Sheet Masks?
