ダイソー Vita White Facial Essence Mask Pack
二日前にブロガーで少し問題がありまして、私のブログはスパムと間違えられてアップ出来ませんでした。幸いにもブロガーがすぐに直してくれたのでもう大丈夫です。En in Tokyoにアップ出来なかった分を週末にアップし直したいと思います。今週リリースされた美肌一族のチョコレートシートマスクも手に入れてレビューしたいと思います。
There was a slight glitch with Blogger two days ago and my blog was mistakenly flagged for spam. Thankfully, Blogger fixed everything right away and now I'm back. I will be updating En in Tokyo on the weekend to make up for lost time.
I picked up two sheet masks from the local Daiso (Japan's 100 yen shop) over the weekend. One was the Vita White Facial Essence Mask Pack and the other was the Aloe Mask. The masks were 100 yen each and made in Korea, the sheet mask capital of the world. I was a little worried when I saw ethanol in the mask ingredients but decided to go ahead and try Vita White, a Vitamin C mask containing orange extract, ginkgo and arbutin. When I opened the package, I noticed a very strong-alcohol smell which made me nervous. Although the mask is supposed to be worn for 20-30 minutes, my face began to sting after two or three minutes. I immediately removed Vita White and washed off any remaining extract. It had burned my face and my skin was extremely red. I applied InnerSignal's Rejuvenate Extract and put on Chifure's Mask N to tone down the redness and calm my skin. Although my face was much better the following morning, it was covered in tiny red bumps and my rosacea had worsened. I cannot recommend this mask and I do not feel comfortable enough to try the Aloe sheet mask but I will post a scan of the ingredients for your benefit. This was, by far, the worse sheet mask experience I have ever had.
