Secret Key Snow White Milky Pack Review

Secret Key Snow White Milky Pack

Secret Snow White Milky Pack is a facial mask I recently picked up from one of my favorite E-bayers. This was a tempting little morsel of a face mask since it contains niacinamide. Since it is a wash off pack you have to question whether that niacinamide is even worth the bother.

But apparently there is a method to Secrey Key’s madness.

Take a look!

I have a love hate relationship with Secret Key Snow White Milky Pack so this is both a rave and a rant and everything else in between.

This has a high level of niacinamide which is proven to improve skin’s elasticity and help with discolorations and just giving skin a more healthy tone and texture.

In fact this is a whitening pack so niacinamide is used to brighten your complexion.

This is very thick, very creamy, and incredibly difficult to wash away. Even after you wash it away it leaves a thicker film on your face which you pat into place so in fact you’re not completely washing away all the good stuff in this mask. Believe you me it sticks around well after you’ve washed it off.

That’s part of the oddness for me and possibly the dislike part as well. I don’t love that I can never fully rinse it away. It’s just clings like nobody’s business. Seriously this is just not moving. I suggest a thinner layer left on for two to three minutes and washed away with lukewarm water. The results are instant. Your face will appear brighter and yes, whiter as in pasty white. The effect is temporary however, the brightness when used with the Secret Key Snow White Cream not long term.

Secret Key Snow White Milky Pack Swatches

I personally think they use the same trick that many Korea white pack masks use to get the whitening effect which is titanium dioxide. You know that strange pasty effect your sunscreen gives your skin? The same method is used in many Korea facial packs…they use titanium dioxide to give that white, bright effect after using it. Granted, it is temporary but it does appear that your face looks quite a good deal whiter. Granted if you’re tan or olive complexion it will look odd but if you have fair or medium fair skin it actually works to ease dullness and give your skin a more uniform appearance. You can take a look at some before and after shots here.

Personally, the mask is an oddity but not like other items I’ve tried in the past. I do like the effects of using this along with the facial cream/primer they make in the same line. When used together my face looks less dull and more brighter and lively. Although difficult to wash away I have to admit I like the effect of this overall and I’d probably continuing to use it weekly.

I’ll review the face cream shortly as well.

Anyone try this?

Love to hear your thoughts!

I purchased this item.

    Interesting how it works! I don’t really like masks that leave residue behind, so I’ll probably pass.

    Hi, I have just bought one because of this great informative article!
    But can you please help me? Can I use it and go out in the sun without worries? Or it would darken the skin like acid, bleaching agents do when exposed to the sun? There’s also no SPF protection on this one from what I know. So should I use it on my face and then apply my sun block SPF 60 upon it?
    Thank you!

    • the Muse

      it’s a wash off face mask why would you go outside with a mask on your face? your questions are a little confusing pinnsia?

      • asdfsdfd

        She means that if you wash if off if you can still walk in the sun. Because when I usen argain oil on my face and go out in the sun light, even when I wash it off, my skin gets dark in no time

    Which gives the best result to a permanent whitening? Secret Key’s Snow White Cream or the Milky Pack? I read that the Milky Pack whitening lasts longer(8-10hrs) while the cream lasts only for a few hours. But I want something long-term that would make my skin white as in permanent after certain time of using it regularly, I was wondering which is better for it? The pack or the cream?

  • jelly

    Which one would you prefer the milky pack or cream for longevity?

  • Too Too

    I think it is used together while they are sold as a set

    it is really one of the best items that I sold

    It becomes a Hot Selling product before adding it to my online store 😀

    really I like it

    the best thing is that your skin becomes more natural and no one can know that you put something on it

    they will just ask you about your white face *WOW*

    finally, I recommend that product for all of you 😉 I am sure, U will like it 🙂

    • Too Too

      Trust me and use the SnowWhite Lotion ( orange one ) it is the best and it is used for Face and Body and no need to wash it after use 🙂

    ‘Topically applied niacinamide has been shown to increase ceramide and free fatty acid levels in skin, prevent skin from losing water content, and stimulate microcirculation in the dermis. It also has a growing reputation for being able to treat an uneven skin tone and to mitigate acne and the red marks it leaves behind (known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation).

    I use the Citrus Clear Pore & Blackhead Mask because it has these excellent ingredients for wrinkles and breakouts. Apply the Citrus Clear mask, let dry in about 10 minutes, rinse and off you go. I do it once per week, and I see results right after the first use.

    Can I use this product and still go out in sun or do I need a sun protection after I have used it?
