I bought the My Beauty Diary Alice in the Wonderland set from T&T Supermarket for a bit above $20. Since I'm relatively new to face masks (I've only tried the apple one before), I thought this would be a great chance to test out which ones I like and which ones I don't. There are 3 different Alice in the Wonderland set in the market (pink, blue, and yellow). It comes with 15 different masks: Strawberry Yogurt, Southern France Apricot, Bird's Nest, Mixed Berry, Japanese Cherry, Black Pearl, Cooling, Sake, Apple, Pearl Powder, Aloe, White Rose, Natto, Q10, Red Vine, and Collagen, plus 2 extra masks (the flavour depends on which set you get). The flavour of the bonus masks in the pink set is Arbutin Whitening Mask.
For my Mandarin speaking readers out there who watch newapplearial's youtube videos, in one of her "favourite" videos, she mentioned she really likes the Arbutin Whitening Mask. I've wanted to try it for a long time but I couldn't find a pack that sells standalone Arubtin Whitening Masks.
I decided to try the Cooling mask today, and thought it would be fun to give my after-use impression. I chose to tryout this one because today was oh-so-hot. And out of all days, the air conditioning in my car wasn't working :(
When I first opened the package, I wasn't impressed with the scent. It smelled like licorice, which I'm not a big fan of. After putting it on my face for a few minutes, the smell disappear (fortunately), and it became more pleasant. As suggest by the name "Cooling Mask," it had a cooling effect and gave off a minty feeling. Its ingredients include licorice root extract (hence the scent), peppermint and menthol (cooling the skin). My face feels extremely refreshed, cooled, and smooth after usage! It's definitely a different experience from using the Apple flavour which I'm more used to. I always thought there are no distinct differences between different MBD face mask flavours, and that it was a more of a gimmick, but I guess this proves me wrong. I'll continue to use the rest of the package and let you girls how it goes :)
