To my knowledge My Beauty Diary is a Taiwanese brand which offers very popular sheet masks in tons of different variations for all types of skin.
Since I am a total sucker for sheet masks I decided to order the Lavender Provence Masks (10 piece box...supposedly calming!) and the big Xmas special set which contains 23 sheet masks in 11 different variations & a special Platinum Nano mask.
To my greatest horror the masks made my skin go crazy with a very strong allergic reaction I didn't experience for about 3-4 years now!
My skin is generally sensitive, but it got much better in the previous years so I could use almost all the stuff I tried out (all those BB Creams, foundations, powders, blushes didn't cause many problems).
I used the Lavender Provence mask and found my skin being itchy and rough and full of red patches the next day. I wasn't sure what to blame it on as I also used a Mandom moisturizer for some days when the allergic reaction happened.
I used cortisone cream for 3 days till my skin was fine.
A few days later I tried the Natto Mask at night and my skin felt so smooth and moisturized afterwards (I didn't use any other product that evening). However in the middle of the night I woke up to an itchy rough mess again so I quickly went to wash my face and apply the cortisone cream again for 3 other days *sigh*.
I have to be very careful with cortisone as my skin was addicted for some time about 5-6 years ago and it took well quite a few months to get rid of the cortisone acne (it's not really an acne, but it's the formation of red bumps due to the absence of cortisone...believe me the urge to put on more corisone was really hard as it makes skin so pretty instantly). My skin was really bad at that time due to using a certain brand of skin care... even though I always had had beautiful clear skin without any pimples or so but the products messed it up so bad so I used cortisone nearly daily for some time leading to even more problems on the long run.
Anways, now my skin is fine again and I will not bother with the My Beauty Diary masks again as I am probably allergic to some ingredient(s) they all have in common. I am not willing to try this out and get the itchies again!
It's a pity as the masks smell good and feel really nice when on =(
I paid US$12.95 & shipping for the 10-piece box of the Lavender masks and US$25.95 & shipping for the Xmas set.
