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.

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
Removes dead skin cells and lighten pigmentation spots. Hydrating and repairing. Retains & replenish moisture and soothe sensitive skin.
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
Reduces size of enlarged pores, regulates sebum secretion and helps to firm and moisturise the skin. Skin becomes clearer with more even complexion.
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.
Firming, regenerating, moisturising, whitening and brightening the overall complexion.
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.

Brightens and whitens the overall complexion. Skin becomes well hydrated and soothed.

5. Cooling Mask
All skin types, especially for skin overly exposed to the sun and tired-looking skin. Not ideal for very sensitive skin.
Cooling and refreshing sensation, moisturizing the skin at the same time. Skin feels soothed, softened and hydrated. Refresh tired skin and improves skin metabolism.
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
Helps to calm the nerves and relieves stress, prevents skin sensitivity. Skin becomes soothed and hydrated.
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
Anti aging and firming effect with supplementary moisturizing element. Skin elasticity improved and very well hydrated.
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
Moisturising, anti-aging and anti-oxidant, restores skin structure. Skin elasticity improved and complexion looks younger, firmer, hydrate and softer.
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
Firms and brightens skin complexion with the addition of anti-oxidant content. Improves blood circulation and skin becomes glowing and radiant.
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.

Whitening, moisturising and improving elasticity of skin.
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
Hydrating, nourishing and brightening effects.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Will I buy it again? Yes I will.
