My Beauty Diary Pearl Powder Mask [REVIEW]

Recently I switched to Pretty and Cute for my Asian skincare and cosmetics needs--and one of the first items I ordered from them was the My Beauty Diary Pearl Powder Mask ($2.00 at prettyandcute.com).  Here's what it claims to do:

My Beauty Diary Pearl Powder Mask trace elements of amino acids which penetrates though the interior layer of skin. It creates a soft, fair look of radiance. Vitamin B and seaweed extracts activate and nourish the skin making soft. Recommended for those with dull and damaged skin.

Made of Japanese-imported multi-layer, cotton sheet that can hold additional nutrients and moisture. The use of nano-technology makes the cotton sheet ultra soft and adheres closer to the skin, so nutrients can be effectively delivered without running off.

The description is pretty Engrish heavy, but it basically claims to soften, brighten, and whiten the skin, containing all of those happy chemicals for naturally soft skin.

Does the Pearl Powder Mask Really Work?

I think it works--but I mostly noticed how soft it made my skin feel.  Even my husband agreed!  And he doesn't agree with me on many things...

Pretend this doesn't look weird.
To use the mask, first cleanse your face--and then apply the mask on your face, patting it onto the surface of your skin gently.  The mask is covered in a translucent, water-based treatment that dries slightly tacky.

My Beauty Diary recommend using this for 15 to 20 minutes, and then massaging the extra residue over your face until it dries.  The actual mask didn't fit my face well, but the treatment felt relaxing and cool against my face.  I took a short nap while the treatment absorbed into my skin.

Fun fact: The sun's rays fear me, because I seriously can never get tan.
After 20 minutes elapsed, I took off the mask, massaged the residual treatment into my skin, and my skin looked like this after 10 minutes.  The result: Soft, somewhat dewy skin.

As for its brightening effect, I don't know if it works, but it seems like my undereye circles are less prominent.

I'm going to be trying more brightening masks from My Beauty Diary soon--and oddly enough, I recently found out they're available in 10 packs at Walmart.com.



Update: I'm about ready to go to bed here (11 a.m.--I'm very sick right now, bleugh!), but I quickly washed my face, and that wonderful dewy, softening effect of the mask is gone. Boo! Guess it's a really temporary treatment. Don't expect it to last long.
