This is my favourite sheet mask so far: My Beauty Diary Bird’s Nest Mask! It took me quite some time to review it, because I’m always a bit lazy when it comes to sheet mask reviews, but here it is finally :) If you are a sheet mask lover you should definitively try out this mask and if you’d like to know my opinion about it, please continue reading my short review :)
My Beauty Diary is a well known Tawainese brand. Their sheet masks are amongst the most popular sheet masks, since they are effective and cheap in comparison to other brands. On their products site you can find detailled descriptions to each of their masks (in English!). The Bird’s Nest Mask is supposed to nourish, brighten, moisturize and firm the skin. Bird’s Nest Mask?! Yeah, that’s right. It is exactly what you think. So why use such an ingredient at all? Bird’s nest acid essence (Neuraminic Acid) promotes the production of Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid and thus contributes to hydration and elasticity of the skin. Apart from this, the mask contains a couple of other ingredients. All the ingredients are green or yellow flagged according to COSDNA except for the pH adjuster Triethanol Amine. If you know that you had previously bad experience with this ingredient, be sure to make a test on your arms either or skip this mask at all.
While using this mask I discovered that the cotton sheet is soaked nicely with the essence, but isn’t dripping wet at all. This makes the application easy and less messy. It gives your skin a cooling and refreeshing effect while wearing and you can feel the moisture provided. After leaving it on for 20-30 minutes it starts to absorb into the skin. As soon as it is absorbed fully it does not feel sticky at all. Moreover, it doesn’t leave a film or looks greasy. But the best part of this mask is the touch of my skin, wich feels soft like silk. I think, this is the first mask were I also experienced a direct “wow” effect after one usage. I couldn’t stop touching my face afterwards *_* All in all, this is a great mask and absolutely recommendable! You can buy this mask from ebay for around 14 US$ per 10 pieces.
