Good Mask! My Scheming Masks 我的心机面膜

Here I am out of town again.  Without much entertainment, (actually, home or away) I frequently end up purchasing items that are not of immediate urgency.  Decided to pack light this trip, I brought along the travel trio pack of Biotherm Aquasource (This will be blogged about REAL SOON I promise), seriously forgotten about any serum/essence for the extra oomph.

Well, having not much to do my friend and I stepped into Watsons (again), and I bought myself 2 more masks from My Scheming!

1 I brought from home, 2 I just bought.

1 I brought from home, 2 I just bought.

They are each :

– My Scheming Pearl Whitening Mask (I’m getting curious about the effects of pearls, a lot of big cosmetic brands are listing or making it a key ingredient.)

– My Scheming Aloe Vera + Vitamin E Mask (This is more of what I like, logical, proven, and down to earth, no funky ingredients or sources that make u go, “eh?”)

– My Scheming Hyaluronan Acid + Sponge Cucumber Extract + Hydrating Silk Mask (Eh?)

So out of ’em three, I choose you, Aloe Vera + Vitamin E Mask.

For those who are more organic-conscious consumers, please note that  propylene glycol is the 2nd main ingredient.  I just noticed that.

Unlike the previous mask from My Scheming I posted, this has a different sheet.  It’s closer to a gel mask yet undoubtedly sheet (wait does it make sense?)  It kisses your skin perfectly, without lumps and bumps.

Can you see the oh-so-smoothness just sticks and kisses my face? Loving it!

I put this on for 30 minutes, as usual.  One thing you might like to consider is the air-conditioner, as it dries up the mask faster than it should.  Better to have all the juicy essence be absorbed to your skin than let that stupid air-con to dry up your mask.

How did the result do?

The result was as expected, skin is brightened up.  Hydrated, from the inside.  It’s strange, somehow you can just see that the hydration comes from the inside.  Pretty cool isn’t it?

This is the result after 30 minutes of mask application.

It doesn’t leave a layer of wax or melted kitchen wrap on your face like the previous Skinfood mask.You tap the remaining essence into your skin lightlly, and apply the remaining essence in the wrapper on your necks, collars, decollete if you will!

Verdict?

Beautiful.  Never falls below expectation.  As usual it delivers the 3 promises of Moisturization, Hydration and Brightening Effect.

So ladies, please head on down to Watsons and hoard up on those My Scheming Masks like they are the most nutritious can food for you to survive an apocalypse cause it’s going on Sales!  2 Masks for RM10.35 on the dot.

Man, year end sales is fun.

GOOD MASK! Q10 + ROYAL JELLY DOUBLE LIFTING MASK by MY SCHEMING BEAUTY

I stopped exploring sheet masks for a long time now, unless I have a 2 weeks long meetings, being caged in the hotels from beginning to end.  Waking up at 6am everyday for 2 weeks!  Things will definitely take a toll on you, that’s when I first bought this mask, yunno, giving self a lil RnR while away on business trips.

Q10 + ROYAL JELLY DOUBLE LIFTING MASK by MY SCHEMING BEAUTY

Of all the sheet masks that I’ve tried, and with so many options out there online, chain stores and all, I truly think this one deserves the credit.  So much so this is the 4th one I’ve bought!  I mean, after I found out how good this mask is, I wanna try its other lines, but hah!  I’m the kind that enjoys meeting expectations.

About The Product

My Scheming is a brand from Taiwan, most prominent with their masks, which can be found in Watsons in Malaysia.  Over the whole shelf of masks in Watsons, this prices itself above RM10.00 bracket.

The product consists of Q10 with Royal Jelly as its main ingredients, with the promise of lifting.  Q10 is commonly associated with anti-aging effect for its antioxidant properties, and Royal Jelly is known for its energizing effect.

Product Features

This mask is slightly different from other common sheet masks as this offers a extra sheet for your neck!  Hence it’s “double lifting” title in the product title.  Not only that, this mask has “ear hooks”, featured on both the face and neck masks.  WIth this ear hooks, you no longer have to lie on your bed/couch like a corpse.  With the hooks on, at least you can get up to get yourself a glass of water or so, you can walk in and out of rooms.  Pretty neat stuff.  Well thoought out.  You sitll need to be in lying down mode most of the time, just that the ear hooks offers a little leverage for you to get up and down a little.  Answering calls?  Still a no no.

Personal Experience

Side View :  See how the hooks hold up the masks thus increase your mobility instead of lying stuck on your bed/couch with your conventional masks.

Well, more like experience(s)!  Hah.  Let me tell you, I have ALWAYS disliked the feeling of things hanging on my neck.  The facial packages I signed up with my beautician, I voluntarily ditched the neck mask eventhough its included in the package.

But with this I thought it’d would be a waste of money if I discard the neck mask.

So I went with it,  I tried.  And I was BLOWN AWAY.

 

How did it blow my mind?  IT IS THE MOMENT THE SHEET MASK WAS REMOVED FROM MY FACE AFTER 30 MINUTES,  right upon removal, the finelines on my neck disappeared!  Can you imagine how amazing it is?!  It’s like that neck lines (although, they’re fine) just got ironed out.  It was no visible AT ALL.

So now tell me, how can I not be addicted to this specific product line out of other masks from My Scheming too?  Cause the results were dazzling!

The Results

Q10 + Royal Jelly Double Lifting Mask by My Scheming Mask

 

I hope in this pic you can see the brightening effected, and my skin is supple, ever so delicately hydrated from the inside.  How about the after feel?  NO WAXY FEELING AT ALL.  NADA.  Upon removal of the sheet, your face feels so light, and it definitely brightens up!  The product left on your face are just pure light essence and with some light tapping it gets so easily absorbed into your skin.

Verdict :

I definitely will introduce this to everyone (except for severe acne prone skin).  This mask runs a good price with the quality it offers.  And friends, please go ahead and explore it’s other range too cause I’m so sure they would be as good!  While Q10 is proven a powerful antioxidant, but there are virtually not enough studies to scientifically prove that Q10 can indeed reverse skin aging – and hence the lift.  But I am head over heels for Royal Jelly, my complexion brightened up after I started using this night cream (salon brand) with Royal Jelly as main ingredient.  So basically, I’d grab anything that with Royal Jelly as main ingredient.

For the remnants of “mask juice” in the pack?  Use it all up!  Apply it all over your body!  Let that nutritions flow baby!
