Empties 2012.03.03 - Sheet Masksss

I short-list a bunch and ask my boyfriend to choose 1 for me each night randomly
In the past week or so - late March/early April, I have been really working hard on my sheet mask stash and used up quite a bit.  You can see before, after pic of most masks - quality of pic just mediocre as they were taken by iPhone 4.

#078, 079 - My Beauty Diary, 2-Step Winter Bright Pack
(Step 1. Olive Leaf Mask, Step 2. Shea Butter Creamy Gel)
HK-exclusive Taiwan-made.  Not sure if this was limited edition, but I'm definitely running out to get more!  Since Summer'11, My Beauty Diary has been bringing out these seasonal "Sheet mask + gel cream" combo sets.  This was such a brilliant concept and I did get all but the Summer'11 one. This Winter'11 one consists of 2 produts.  (see the full packaging here)
First, a mask that smells very fresh and did reminds me of olive leaf (probably the body shop olive body butter or shampoo?), lovely thin sheet with not too much essence, and firm enough not to break, moisturirse and soothes, and brightens too!  Second, a gel cream that seals in the moisture; it was very lovely, not too thick not too thin, and the scent reminds me of honey and vanilla (like the body shop honey/oat 3in1 scrub mask). 
Rating: 5/5 + Repurchase: Yes, already did and will + Reason: Love-this!

#080 - Bioglo, Whitening n Anti-Pigmentation Mask
Taiwan-made.  I used to love this very much.  Helps brighten skin well.  Decently mositurising.  Soft nice scent.  Super soft thin easy-to-break sheet. 
Rating: 4/5 + Repurchase: Maybe + Reason: just ok, bored...

#081 - Beauty Friends, Red Ginseng
Korean.  Amazing ginseng scent, but the mask itself did nothing to my skin.  Not moisturising nor calming nor brightening - NOTHING! 
Rating: 2/5 + Repurchase: No + Reason: blah.

#082 - Naudia, Marine Caviar Collagen Sheet Mask
French, as the packaging says.  Biggest mistake - the cloth cutting was wrong.  So wrong it either miss out a big chuck of the centre of my face, or end up in folds at various areas.  Hence the bandaged-mummy look of the above pic...The jelly like serum doesn't do anything to my skin, nor is the texture/smell of the mask impressive... Disappointed!
Rating: 0/5 + Repurchase: No + Reason: Hate.

#083 - SkinLite, Relaxing n Calming Lavender Mask

Korean.  The sheet texture is perfect.  The cutting was alright.  But the serum/solution smells and feels like soapy water.  Not the best thing to feel on the skin, I must say! 
Rating: 2/5 + Repurchase: No + Reason: soapy feeling.

#084 - Neutrogena, Fine Fairness Deep Whitening Mask
Smells exactly like the sunscreen(s), which smell is not one I'm most fond of...  Lovely net style cloth that does work nice on my face... Moisture okay, whitening okay...
Rating: 3/5 + Repurchase: No + Reason: Price and scent.

#085, 086 - My Beauty Diary, Spring Mask Pack
(1. Mountain Cherry Blossom Mask, 2. April Cherry Blossom Creamy Gel)
This is the new Spring set, similar to the Winter one mentioned above.  The mask is perfect - 5/5.  Cloth, serum, moisture, everything.  The gel is thinner, but still fits the description as 'creamy gel'.  The gel is milky with small tiny dots of pink suspension, they are some microspheres with vitamin c (and some extras?) that adds brightening effect.  Not super moisturising.
Rating: 4/5 + Repurchase: Maybe + Reason: not too sure of the gel.
