Today, let's take a look at this wonderful product by My Scheming, it's called "Deep Cleansing Pore Minimizing Mask". The current version is a new upgraded formulation with "Hydrated Micro-Emulsifying Technology" (pardon my horrendous translation, but I'm already trying my best here >_< )
This Deep Cleansing Pore Minimizing Mask comprises Gentianae Radix extract, mulberry extract, liquorice extract, acerola extract and protease which accelerates metabolism, renews aged cuticles and enhances nutrient absorption. It repairs all aspects of skin problems and gives you brightness, lightness and fair skin.
Proper Usage: After thorough cleansing, remove pearl paper and place mask over your face. Adjust and press lightly so it adheres to every inch of the skin on your face. Remove mask after 20-30 minutes or when mask feels semi-dry to the touch. Remaining essence on the face is to be patted and left on for absorption.
Each box contains 10 pieces and the cost is a affordable S$14.50, technically a steal, I'd dare say. And each mask contains 30ml of facial mask essence.
Here's how the mask looks like within the package itself. And mind you, even as I was slowly snipping away the 3 corners of the packaging to show what it's like inside, the mask essence was already oozing out. It's definitely more than the 30ml stated on the box itself.
As usual, kitchen appliances always wants to share the spotlight when photographs are taken in the kitchen. Mine's no different as well. And immediately upon placing and adjusting the mask on my mask, I was surprised how cooling it made my face feels.
I like how the mask itself is adhered to this plastic face "mold" which happens to have little holes in them. This ensures that no matter what, less mask essence will remain on this plastic when the mask itself is removed for usage. I've had encounters where the mask essence practically "leaves" the mask and stayed on this plastic sheet when removed for usage.
I also liked how this Deep Cleansing Pore Minimizing Mask by My Scheming doesn't literally "overwhelm" my face. Meaning, it actually fits my face nice and snug instead of overlapping onto my hairline.
Before I proceed on to the review/verdict, here's another look on Facial Mask a.k.a Sheet Mask.
A sheet mask, my favorite type of face mask, is a soft and very thin piece of cloth containing different types of skin nutrients and ingredients. With sheet mask, skin nourishment are broken down into nano-parts. A nano is one billionth of a part. Since the nutrients are extremely small or nano size, your skin can easily take in the minerals. Your skin is your outer covering, and healthy skin protects the body; even small pathogens cannot easily get inside. A sheet mask is cut in the shape of a mask. It is made to fit your face, leaving your nostrils, mouth and eyes opened. When you leave the mask on for a specified time, your skin will take in the nutrients. Sheet masks come in different types to suit each skin type. They are suitable for both men and women and are applied after washing the face.
VERDICT: Truth be told, the reason why I always seemed to look underage (when helping friends buy alcohol) is because of my oily skin. Yes, us oilies look younger due to our oily skin, so it's not all that bad in the end. However, with oily skin comes enlarged pores, clogged pores and excessive sebum outflow. And not forgetting the usual yucky stuffs on our face called whiteheads (milia a.k.a oil seeds), blackheads and our not-so-likable BFF we call acne (or pimple for some of us).
Having these on my face is already a living nightmare, imagine having that pesky little acne that refuses to calm down nor ripened is even more nerve-wrecking. You are practically walking around with a hideous red dot on your face, wherever you go, announcing to everyone that there's an undecided acne camping on your face. And this is one of the reasons why I appreciate products such as the Deep Cleansing Pore Minimizing Mask by My Scheming.
For those of you who might still be looking for that facial mask that best suits you or maybe you just couldn't decide which one is better, look no further. My Scheming Mask, one of the fastest selling Facial Mask in Taiwan, aims to give each user a delightful and rewarding experience. With its several product variants, every woman can choose the best My Scheming mask that suits her best depending on her skin type and desired effect. Be it Whitening, Clarifying, Deep Cleansing or Brightening to Double Lifting masks.
The feeling I got on my skin as soon as I applied this Deep Cleansing Pore Minimizing Mask is utter bliss and relaxation and the mask actually "cools" the heat on my face as well. An instant soothing and refreshing sensation is the correct term actually, and the scent of the mask, is good too. The good part(s) about this brand/mask is that:
- The mask doesn't tear easily as I was re-adjusting repeatedly on my face
- The mask doesn't fall right off when I bent at a 90° angle to pick something off the ground
- It doesn't make my skin feel uber taut and tight, which is a No-No for our skin
- My face doesn't feel nor look oily hours after using this mask
As compared to other facial/sheet mask(s) I have used previously, the bad after-effects sometimes only happens hours after usage, maybe even days. I've been using this particular mask for the past 4 days, once daily, and I have to admit that my pores doesn't look so enlarged anymore. It won't go kaput overnight if it's already enlarged, but it still can be minimized with care. My face doesn't feel nor look dull and my blemish did look somewhat lighter as compared to before. I can't really say much for the fairer part as I'm already pale-looking, but I did look a little more brighter than before and an ex-colleague actually joked that my skin is blinding his eyes ^^; And best of all, no bad after-effects nor side effects were encountered despite using this facial mask for 4 days straight.
