Face Q Sheet Mask (various)

Sasa recently listed those ubercute sheet masks from a Taiwanese brand called Face Q. The box of 10 cost about US$12 for 10 pieces so I quickly grabbed 3 boxes of different sheet masks... I wish I hadn´t!

Face Q is produced by PPC Life, a Taiwanese pharmaceutical company... when I saw the website addy printed on the back of the box it looked familiar to me but I couldn´t remember which product I tried before from the same company...

Well, I tried on the Red Grape & Green Tea Mask and it was very nice, with an excellent fit and feel. The sheets are made of natural pulp instead of cotton so they adhere and adjust to the face shape very well.
I washed the essence that was left over on my face off and used my usual skincare before I went to bed.
I woke up in the middle of the night to notice that I had a very swollen, red and itchy I assumed it must have been the mask as I didn´t use any other new things that day.

The next day I checked the website and to my horror found out that it´s the same company producing My Beauty Diary! I had a horrible allergic reaction to the masks form MBD some time ago (maybe couple of years?) and seems the same irritant must have been used in the Face Q masks, too!
Had I checked the website earlier I probably wouldn´t have tried the masks *sigh*.

Anyway, if you are sensitive to MBD I suggest staying far away from Face Q but if you like MBD you might just love Face Q.

I am selling the boxes so if anyone is interested, please let me know. The boxes of Luffa & Adlay and Red Pomegranate & CoQ10 are still sealed whereas I took 1 mask from the Red Grapes & Green Tea masks. If you are interested please email me (

awww, sorry about your reaction upon these masks. I love to try out new skincare as well, but sometimes (I know) it can be a bit of a let-down.
P.s. I hope your horror exam went well!
