Each of the 11 BeautyMate masks has a different function: Some soothes sensitivity, some to fight acne, moisturizing and most are (different phrasing on) whitening. I use them mainly to calm inflammation and flakiness (after squeezing zits on my face) and lightly moisturize and it seems very effective doing that, they all make my face feel moisturized but not too nourished (that I got whitehead afterward).
When I have them on my face, I notice a little bit of a tingling sensation that can sting a little on broken skin (I guess I shouldn't use mask on broken skin anyway) but it goes away pretty quickly and doesn't irritate the skin further.
A different packaging on masks with Aomori Green Apple and Yamagata Cherry - but the inside are pretty similar though. Different to other masks I have tried, the Beautymate ones all have plastic sheet on which the wet mask is adhere to, I suppose it's meant to keep the mask in place/shape.
And in case you wonder, this is the main item I want from the swap...
|"Knock! Knock!! Knock!!! Who's z'ere? We are Sexy Zone!"|
I thought I have seen it all, with NYC (which stands for Nakayama, Yamada and Chinen) Kis-My-Ft (No. Thank you!), Johnny-san has outdone himself again, coming up with the most awkward name in the history of boy band. When I first heard the news, I was skeptical ("What the hell is Sexy Zone? Clearance racks of Victoria's Secret?") but something happened (involving a few animated gifs of Sato Shori) and the next thing I know...I was looking up pictures of the kid and sniggering in front of my laptop, like a middle-aged perv.
Picture of Sato Shori alone - You know you want it.
