FaceQ Almond and Shea Butter mask

The bunny is going through a mask craze lately. Last night, I tried Face Q's Almond and Shea Butter Mask which I received as a gift with purchase from Sunnanz during my My Scheming masks haul.

FaceQ is a sister brand of My Beauty Diary and manufactured by President Pharmaceutical Corp.,Taiwan. It uses a unique hydrogel micro-emulsion technology that allows moisture to quickly penetrate into the skin.

The mask sheet is made from 100% wood pulp. As compared to My Beauty Diary, the cutting of the mask seems to be much bigger, especially at the chin/jaw area, so it doesn't fit my face well. Also, it's much much thicker and doesn't seem to stay nicely on my face. :(

The mask smells just like Body Shop's Shea Butter Body Lotion.

After I had the mask on for 20mins my skin felt really bouncy and smooth. I usually don't wash off the serum and simply pat into my skin but I had to with this mask as the serum is white and it was drying with white streaks on my face.

Overall, I liked the effects of the mask, but I don't think I will purchase it. It's too much of a hassle to keep adjusting the mask for the entire duration of 20mins when it's on my face.
