Face mask is something that I use once every two days. That is almost 3-4 times per week. It's just a quick and easy way to re-hydrate and rejuvenate my skin the quick, easy and efficient way. This would also mean that I've gone through a whole lot of different brands of face mask and there's bound to have good and bad ones.
Recently, I've been loving a brand called Dr. Morita.
Almost four years ago, I came across this brand in Singapore and I tried one of their face mask which was really good. But over the years, I've never really seen it in Malaysia and I go through so many face mask that it did not really come across my mind until recently I've been spotting it in Guardian Malaysia and friends have been talking about it.
My all time favourite would be the Hyaluronic Acid Essence Mask (The Blue One). This goes into my #monthlyFavourites as well as #HolyGrail
Dr Morita also has a starter pack that comes with
- Narcissus Whitening Essence Ultra Slim Facial Mask
- Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Essence Mask
- Collagen Repair Essence Mask.
The packaging on a first impression looks the same as any other face mask but what's really good about it is that their face mask sheets are made of Tencel Silk cotton mask, a man-made fiber that allows all the essence and active ingredients to be absorbs and to the skin and not only that, it doesn't feel tacky, sticky, hard, and dry after applying it for 10-20 minutes.
Packed and sealed nicely
They aren't many sheet face mask with really good quality. One that isn't harsh that irritates the skin or the ones that dries out quick.
The few problems that I face mostly with other brands sheet mask are; (something that i define bad)
- Cotton sheets are too dry/Face Mask dries up and stiffens after 15 minutes.
- Face Mask are either too dry or too "drenched" and ends up either NOTHING being absorbed onto the skin or essenve/water dripping everywhere
- Face mask sliding down my face or not fitting well.
but with Dr. Morita face mask, not only it's drenched with the right amount, it doesn't leave essence dripping down my chin or face. The face mask is quite a good size fitting without it sliding down my face as well. Not only that, after 15-20 minutes, it's not dry and I can still easily remove and put it on my neck/hands and leg for a hand-me-down mini pampering mask session.
So, i've tried the few Dr Morita mask for the past two weeks, and I have to say, my skin has become brighter, clearer, smoother and much more moisturising.
Due to the whole El-Nino and the heat that this country is facing. My rosecea has been flaring up really bad. #noJoke and I shall talk/share about it one day.
But, let me show you a before after photo of my left chin to show you the effects.
Throughout my entire skincare routine for both day and night HAVE been the same with the same products that i've been rotating throughout the month and the ONLY thing i've changed and added is the Dr Morita face mask.
Right before this, I've been having de-hydrated dry sensitive with rosecea flaring up which can be quite annoying. Moisturisers, Face Oils and Serums were not enough to re-hydrate my skin.
I'm SERIOUS! If you look at this photo and the "BEFORE" photo, you can actually see the dry skin patches that are now no longer around thanks to Dr Morita. I think my pictures have shown much more than my words can describe. Those who knows me will know that I always say no matter skin type you have, in whatever weather you are in, be in dry, oily or combination - hydration is always important. Just because you have oily skin doesn't mean you skin your moisturisers or you can ignore hydration and just because you have normal skin doesn't mean you can ignore. Prevention is better than cure remember?
