Review: FaceQ Mask

Hello lovelies, how was you day?

Mine have been quite dull and I need to find a job. Honestly speaking, today would be my day 3 in viewing over jobs offered in jobstreet. So far, most of it don't seem like the "fun" job as desired. I supposed real corporate world are like that? I mean, hmm, it should be rephrased as such: "As long as it is something not of our preference, it would not be the "fun" that we would choose to seek in the offered job position". To be real honest here, I have been dreading and not wanting this day to come forth. I was even trying to bury it to my unconscious until yesterday. Got to discipline myself and search online for it. Before this, I was really looking forward to it when my last paper of degree was done but that eagerness faded when I was sitting back and relaxing at home until now.

Well, anyway, here's a mask review to relax myself awhile and continue with my search later on,...,and on, and on, till I find a job. The mask have been receiving great reviews over other blogs. There are also a few that isn't so great about it. Disregard of all the positive and negative comments, I would still want to give it a try since my sister recommended me to buy it last year.

I bought a box of faceQ mask (10 pieces each) with my sister last year at MaskSlim. She bought the purple box while I bought the red one. We then exchange 5 pieces each (smart way to save huh?).

So what do consumers like you who buy masks look at the first thing before you buy the product? Well, for me, I look for the expiry date first! I would prefer it to be a year or two from the current year. Just to be on the safe side (almost anything) since I use them so slow (the main reason for using the products slow are plain laziness, undeniable).

Getting back, I bought this FaceQ - Red Pomegranate + CoQ10 mask

It is made of 100%  wood pulp sheets (30g each).

That's the rest of the information in Chinese which I barely can fully comprehend. #sadcase

How to use:
1. Apply mask on cleansed and toned face.
2. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes.
3. Remove mask (from chin and in the upward direction).
4. Tap to enhance the absorption of the serum.
5. Follow by night cream/whatever products that is in your routine.
*You can use this mask between 1-3 times a week*

What stands out:
1. "Chamomile" is a healing agent which helps to treat eczema, acne, soothe skin rash as well as minor
2. Rehydrates, whitening & brightening, oil control, reduces appearances of fine lines and spots, and serves as an antioxidant to the skin.
*(Whatever claims of the product as written in point 2 is what I found from other reviews online)*

My thought:
About the scent, I think it smells light and fresh. There are quite some essence in the packet but I usually just throw it away as to avoid any dripping of essence of the mask (I did not try to apply more essence onto the masks to see if it does or not, shall update when I do!!). I think it does make my face brighter and am glad that the remaining essence leaves a non-sticky feeling on my skin once it is all dried. However, I cannot answer now as to whether it does what it says for the lightening of fine lines and spots as only on a long term basis only I can tell. My face is definitely not oily a few more hours after that. The con is that it does not wrapped well around my face which leaves me looking like the pug....sad looking "human pug" here. Argh

That's my pug-looking selfie
(No offense to any pug and pug lovers. It is just an example and I have no bad intention about it. I know that pugs are adorable as I am a dog lover!)(pardon me for looking manly here =.= )

Here is the purple packet of FaceQ - Grape Seed + Green Tea mask


100% wood pulp sheets

Information at the back (30g).

Closer view (if you can comprehend it). That's the expiry date 2015, just nice for a snail slow user like me.

How to use:
1. Apply mask on cleansed and toned face.
2. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes.
3. Remove mask (from chin and in the upward direction).
4. Tap to enhance the absorption of the serum.
5. Follow by night cream/whatever products that is in your routine.
*You can use this mask between 1-3 times a week*

What stands out:
1. Antioxidant
2. Whitening and brightening
3. Enhance skin elasticity (Grape seed, you rock!)
4. Moisturising
*(Whatever claims of the product as written in from point 1 to 4 are what I found from other reviews online)*

My thought:
I was looking forward to the scent but it was rather weird. Artificial maybe and not much of a grape or tea smell. There are quite some essence which I did not manage to finish. It does leave a smooth finish when the remaining essence is all well-absorbed into the brighter-looking skin. The con for this mask is the same, me looking like a "human pug".

Front view. The mask do not fit my face well making me looking like a "human pug" once again.
(pardon me for looking manly here =.= )

Side view for a closer look of how it all not fit my face.
