My Beauty Diary Mask Review

I finally have a chance to try My Beauty Diary Mask. I have wanted to try this mask brand since the first time I saw it at Eki's blog post. Then I noticed that many beauty bloggers have tried also and they made such great reviews.

The bad news is, MBD is so hard to get in Indo and I don't have credit card, so I can't buy it from overseas online shop like sasa or amazon etc. 

After tried to find local importer and I got it from facebook. For Indonesian who wants to try MBD. I recommend you to go here. The range selections are not to many, but it's a good start for beginner like me. 

How To Use My Beauty Diary Mask:

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



First try: 
MBD Apple Polyphenol

Purpose: 
Tightening pores, regulates sebum secretion

Skin type:

Ingredients: 
Roselle Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, Gentle Nano

First time tear the packaging and pulled out the sheet,  I had an awkward moment. I didn't know how to use it because the sheet was folded in a strange way (in my head). I've never used sheet mask before, so that was my first experience xp.
I like the scent and how the sheet felt so cold and fresh on my skin. It was really really good! really!

I love the mask. Very unique scent combination. But it was a little disappointing. I expected to smell more ice cream scent..


Here few pics of me wearing the masks. Please ignore my 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' faces.






Happy, healthy and refresh face after used the mask. 

The conclusion is:
The masks are moisturizing, RICH of essence, refresh and soothes the exhausted skin, nice scents and also affordable. 

I can't pick my favorite because actually, I couldn't distinguish the difference between each mask because I only used them once. But I will repurchase few of them (because I don't really love black cherry choco and red wine) and the other types to see more improvement to skin.


I highly recommend this brand! (just like everyone who has tried it)

Experience yourself guys! You won't regret it! ^^

  1. Thank you for the detailed and neat review. I love MBD masks coz most of them are very light and does not cause any sensitivity or outbreaks on me.

    My favourite one is a black sesame mochi smelling one. See, I can't even remember the name but the scent itself lingers on and trigger memories of it. Haha... I almost wanted to wat my sheet up when it smell so much like black sesame mochi.

  15. Great review Joan! I love these masks, but honestly, I have to admit that I can't tell much difference between each mask either because I don't use them long term. I like to try new flavors so I'm always switching the ones I use :P
