Review – My Beauty Diary Face Mask (我的美麗日記)

My Beauty Diary Face Mask also known as 我的美麗日記 (Wo De Mei Li Ri Ji), is Taiwan’s hottest selling facial mask and its popularity has remarkablely increased within Asian markets, such as China, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore. This brand was introduced by one of my colleague and there are 11 different masks in this box. Each with its own benefits to suit consumer’s need.

My Beauty Diary Face Mask is designed to suit different users according to varies skin conditions. Allows women from all age range, to keep their own facial diary and see the result of a healthier glow skin every day.

These mask essences contain natural ingredients specially formulated for different uses such as Anti Aging, Anti Oxidant, Brightening, Calming, Clarifying, Cooling, Firming, Moisturising, Nourishing, Tighten Pores, Regenerating, Soothing and Oil Control.

In addition, with Nanospheres Technology, it is said to help for easy absorption of the essence and the effects will be seen with 1 use.

I bought this box at S$18 (from my colleague who happened to travel to Taiwan) which I think is pretty expensive if you compare to some local sites that are selling this product too. Selling each mask at S$1.30 or RM$3.00.

The 11 Benefits

1. Aloe Vera Mask

All skin types, especially dry, damaged skin

Product Profile
Removes dead skin cells and lighten pigmentation spots. Hydrating and repairing. Retains & replenish moisture and soothe sensitive skin.

Side notes
Good for moisturizing. Very little benefit for lightening result. Aloe Vera Mask contains good ingredients like hyaluronic acid, milk protein, squalane, aloe extract, collagen, L-ascorbic acid and vitamin E acetate. But it contains tiny amount of skin irritant ingredients like lemon and kiwi.

2. Apple Mask

All skin types, especially for skin with enlarged pores

Side notes
Ideal for moisturizing. Little benefit for pores tightening and skin clarity. No benefit for firming. Apple Mask contains good ingredients like hyaluronic acid, bladder wrack and aloe extract. But it contains tiny amount of skin irritant ingredients like albumin, fragrance, lemon and arnica extract.
3. Black Pearl Mask

All skin types, especially for dull-looking skin and lack of firmness.

Product Profile
Firming, regenerating, moisturising, whitening and brightening the overall complexion.

Side notes
Good for moisturizing. Little or no benefit for firming, regenerating, whitening and brightening. Black Pearl Mask contains tiny amount of royal pearl extract which has no effect on the result at all. It contains good ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe, pineapple and vegetable collagen. But it contains perfume and lime tree which may irritate skin.

4. Bulgarian White Rose Mask

All skin types, especially for dull-looking skin.

Product profile

All skin types, especially for skin overly exposed to the sun and tired-looking skin. Not ideal for very sensitive skin.

Product profile
Cooling and refreshing sensation, moisturizing the skin at the same time. Skin feels soothed, softened and hydrated. Refresh tired skin and improves skin metabolism.

Side notes
This Cooling Mask helps to refresh the skin effectively. Skin feels fresh and hydrate. My favourite mask of all. It contains good ingredients like hyaluronic acid, witch hazel, aloe and pineapple. Although it contains handful of skin irritant ingredients like arnica, peppermint extract, rosemary extract, menthol, ethanol and perfume, but my sensitive skin doesn’t get irritated at all.
6. Lavender Mask

All skin types, especially sensitive skin

Product profile
Helps to calm the nerves and relieves stress, prevents skin sensitivity. Skin becomes soothed and hydrated.

Side notes
Although lavender aroma is known to help calms and relax the tension of mind and body but I do not agree to use lavender to calm the skin at all. Theoretically, lavender is a fragrance ingredient with no proven benefit for skin. It can be a skin irritant which may not be suitable for very sensitive skin. Other skin irritant ingredients include peppermint and arnica.
7. Natto Mask

All skin types, especially dehydrated, dull & lack of elasticity skin

Product profile
Anti aging and firming effect with supplementary moisturizing element. Skin elasticity improved and very well hydrated.

Side notes
Good for moisturizing. Very little benefit on firming and skin elasticity. Natto gum, its key ingredient, is a fermentation of soy protein which may be a potent antioxidant. It contains lemon, arnica extract, grapefruit and fragrance which may irritate skin.

8. Q10 Mask

All skin types, especially loss of elasticity skin

Product profile
Moisturising, anti-aging and anti-oxidant, restores skin structure. Skin elasticity improved and complexion looks younger, firmer, hydrate and softer.

Side notes
Ideal for moisturizing. Little or no benefit for anti-aging, anti-oxidant or firming. Although Q10 Mask contains collagen, but scientifically collagen is only a good water-binding agent with no benefit on building collagen in skin. In addition, although coenzyme Q10, its key ingredient, has been well received as an anti-aging topical solutions, but many scientists have found no evidence to be useful as a topical agent.
9. Red Wine Mask

All skin types, especially for dull looking skin and lack of firmness

Product profile
Firms and brightens skin complexion with the addition of anti-oxidant content. Improves blood circulation and skin becomes glowing and radiant.

Side notes
Minimal benefit on skin radiant and brightening. No visible result on firming. Red Wine Mask contains antioxidants like vitis vinifera (grape seed), green tea, chamomile and vitamin E acetate which help for reduction the effects of oxidation on skin. Other good ingredients include hyaluronic acid, mucopolysaccharides and yeast complex.

10. Sake Yeast Mask

Ideal for dull-looking skin, may not suitable for sensitive skin

Product profile
Whitening, moisturising and improving elasticity of skin.

Side notes
Ideal for hydrating. Little benefit on whitening and no benefit on skin elasticity. Sake Yeast Mask contains some skin irritant ingredients like fragrance and lemon extract which may not be suitable for sensitive skin.

11. Pearl Powder Mask

All skin types, especially dull & damaged skin

Product profile
Hydrating, nourishing and brightening effects.

Side notes
Ideal for moisturizing. Superficial result on brightening. Traditionally, although pearl powder is known to help maintain a beautiful skin when taken orally. But there is no scientific prove that it will improve the skin condition for topical use.

Common ingredients

All these masks contain purified water which is filtered water used in cosmetics. Other common ingredients found in these masks are parabens (preservatives), sodium hydroxide, xanthan gum, citric acid, carbomer, triethanolamine and 1,3-butylene glycol.

Usage

1. Cleanse face thoroughly before applying mask.
2. Excess essence from the packaging may be applied on the neck by massage.
3. After 20 minutes, remove mask and gently massage face to assist absorption.
4. Rinsing is not required.
5. You may apply toner, moisturizer etc. after application
6. Use daily for maximum effect.

Review

In my opinion, other than having different scents, these masks create similar results overall. All provide good moisturizing results after application. But sadly these results are temporary.

The only one which I can feel the different is the Cooling Mask. It gives me this nice cooling effect.

I like the essence in the mask which is concentrated and easily absorbed onto the skin.

My skin feels hydrated and smooth and fine lines are significantly soften. Overall, no visible result on brightening and firming.

Rating

Will I buy it again? Yes I will.

    Thank you so much for your review.
    I have oily skin, which mask should i use?

  6. Shirleen says:

    Hi Nan,

    In fact, all the My Beauty Diary masks are meant for skin hydration. Even if you have oily skin, you still can do hydration too.

    But if you prefer to find a mask that can help reduce the oiliness, you may want to try mask that contains clay. Clay mask is suitable for oily skin but not normal or dry skin.

  10. Sen Thai says:

    Hello, I was just wondering if these mask would be non-animal testing. That an they also say they use natural ingredients, but I am wondering if that weighs in more then the common ingredients as well. Thank you for your time. :] <3

  11. Shirleen says:

    Hi Sen Thai,

    I’m not too sure regards to the non-animal testing on these products.

    I believe they use natural ingredients but the amounts are miniscule. These products are not marketed as natural products hence there are handful of artificial ingredients in them.

  12. Lily says:

    Hello,
    My face is very sensitive and i have acne scar all over my forehead that i am trying to get rid of them and because of them, i want my face to bright up a bit more. Also, my skin is very dry especially since now it is the winter. So, I was wondering which face mask should I get? Ive already ordered the black pearl one to try, but is there a better one that you would recommend?
    thank you.

  13. Shirleen says:

    Hi Lily,

    For skin brightening effect, I personally prefer Red Wine and Sake Yeast Mask. The result may not be very obvious though.

  14. Amanda says:

    To Lily,
    One of my best friends has a very sensitive skin, just without the acne. Its so sensitive that even when she applies face cream, the skin gets all ret and irritating.
    I would recommend you to get rid of all the cosmetics you have that irritate your skin and try using skin care that contain Dead Sea Minerals in it especially the Dead Sea mud which work like a magnet to all the dirt inside your pores while leaving all the nutrients of the minerals inside. Meaning – its not just cleaning or hydrating;its healing your skin. “The Mineral Miracle” has the full range of Dead Sea products, Well worth a visit. Hope this helps.

  15. Baby says:

    Hello

    My skin is dull and lack of radiance which type of mask is good for recommendation.

  16. Shirleen says:

    Hi Baby,

    You may want to try Red Wine or Sake Yeast, both can help to brighten up the skin but the effect is quite superficial though.

  17. nuni says:

  18. Samantha says:

    Hi, I’ve been using Aloe mask every day in the past couple of weeks, is it ok to use it daily? fyi. i have oily skins, scar, and acne problems.

  19. Shirleen says:

    HI Nuni,

    For brown spots and dry skin, I will recommend red wine and sake yeast masks.

    Hi Samantha,

    For hydrating mask such as aloe vloe, it is alright to use daily.

  20. M says:

    I notice that there are 3 kinds of set. All in 1 blue , yellow and pink. so it’s different, right?

  21. Shirleen says:

    Hi M,

    The color of each pack indicates the ingredients used and they are all different. Hope I have answered your question.

  22. Katie says:

    Hi,

    I use the Bird’s Nest Mask and I lurbbb it! oh, and some of the makeup gurus on youtube are all talking about their new chocolate line, i think? Or is it Hello Kitty? Not sure… :////

  23. Irene says:

    Hi I have oily dull dark skin with acne, huge visible pores and scars left from acne. which mask would be best for me?

  24. Shirleen says:

    Hi Irene,

    Your oily and dull-looking skin may be due to dead skin cells surface on the upper skin layer. And the enlarged pores are due to pores being clogged with layers of dead skin too. The best way to treat these problems is to remove the dead skin cells using an exfoliant such as a gentle scrub or products that contain AHA or BHA.

    The masks above will only help to provide moisture onto the skin but they will not help to remove the dead skin cells. You can use the mask after an exfoliant for better result.

  29. Jenn says:

    Hi
    My skin type is sensitive to dry, meaning i’m a bit iffy about trying the my beauty diary mask in aloe, do you still recommend it, because this is my first time using a mask?

  30. Shirleen says:

    Hi Jenn,

    I guess it’s no harm trying it. Try not to have it more than 15 mins.

  31. Maiya says:

    Hi,
    My name is Maiya.I would like to try my beauty diary face mask. this is my skin type is oily between T-zone and dry and have some dark spots.Which one you will recommend it?
    Thanks,

    Kind regard.

    Maiya

  32. Shirleen says:

    Hi Maiya,

    I can’t find an appropriate one actually. Maybe you can check out Sake or Red Wine, both may help to improve skin brightness but they may not help to lighten dark spots.

  33. Maiya says:

    Hi Shirleen,
    Thanks for your recommend.I hope my skin will getting better after i use. How often i need to use it?

    Kind regard.

    Maiya.

  34. Shirleen says:

    Hi Maiya,

    Once or twice per week.

  35. Yeng says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    Which one of them are good for getting rid of acne scars and reduce pores?

  36. Shirleen says:

    Hi Yeng,

    Unfortunately none.

  37. Pynk says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    After using mask treatments such as the beauty diary (or those from SKII /Korean Brands), do you continue with your normal skincare regime? I understand that masks are usually used after applying toner. What about Paula’s Choice BHA exfoliants? Should I use them before mask treatments too?

    I usually use masks after my toner and don’t apply the rest of my regime because sometimes the masks feels too heavy on my face after using them.

  38. Shirleen says:

    Hi Pynk,

    I normally prefer to use a mask in the day however if I’m using it at night, I will ensure it’s fully absorbed into the skin before continuing my usual night regimen.

    I’m not comfortable using Paula’s Choice AHA or BHA exfoliant before any mask cos I do not want the product (AHA/BHA) to cause any unnecessary irritation when having the mask on. I will instead prefer to exfoliate my skin with a gentle scrub before using a mask and I will skip the toner actually. :-)

Got something to say? Go for it!
