Review: MBD LE Hello Kitty Mask

Ever since I had read about there being limited edition Hello Kitty My Beauty Diary masks, I had been on the lookout to buy it. I recently found out that it was being sold only in Taiwan, which is the reason why I hadn't been seeing it on my usual online stores.

The masks come in two formulations, Strawberry Milk and Honey Strawberry. I decided to go with the Honey Strawberry since honey helps to moisturize while the strawberry helps to brighten. The Strawberry Milk is supposed to whiten and brighten. Each box contains 10 masks and there are three different package designs, so you get 3 sets of each design plus one extra. I'm not sure if the 1 extra is the same in every box. They are so cute that I don't want to use it.


I did used one mask the other night and here is my thoughts on it. It is your typical MBD mask as far as the size and shape of the mask. Like all of the other masks, it is saturated very well. The scent of this is really pleasant, a lightly sweet scent. I kept the mask on for about half an hour and as I usually do, I massage, pat and work the remainder of the essence into my skin and going down my neck. This took quite a bit of work! I think that the honey makes it stickier and tackier than the other MBD masks that I've used. It took a long time to work it in and I even rubbed it onto my arms! What I didn't care for was how my skin felt sticky even after it had dried. When I woke up the next morning I was glad that my skin wasn't still sticky. It was very moisturizing but I didn't really notice a brightening effect.

While it wasn't the best MBD mask that I have used, I'm glad that I was able to get it--even just as a collector's item. I'm thinking of perhaps trying to get the Strawberry Milk mask to see how that is. For your info, I bought 2 boxes on ebay.

hm... how sticky was the essence? lol
but the honey ingredient making it stickier and tackier seems to make sense~ good to know it wasn't sticky the morning after && moisturizing =]

BOOOOOOO only available in taiwan??? *sniffles* i was hoping to get my hands on some in HK =[

packaging wise it's definitely a collectors item, but i feel like they should release it as is, as well...

@Steph--Yes, I know! I was quite disappointed when I heard from Jennifer that it was only released in Taiwan. That's when my search for a way to purchase these masks seriously began.

@Jennifer--They really do smell quite nice and pleasant! Not heavily scented at all.

@sugar sugar--That is precisely why I purchased two boxes! I wanted to be able to use it but also wanted to keep it because it's so cute. I will be saving one mask of each design as a keepsake.

@Nic Nic--It's true, MBD has a lot of different flavors! I'm trying to stay away from purchasing the chocolate ones because I just may end up forgetting myself and try to eat it.

Have a great Golden Week!!!

Oh nooo.. I wanted to get this.. =( Don't know if it's safe to get online. You know.. There are so many fakes nowadays.

@Isabel--Yes, I've heard that there are many fakes nowadays. Unfortunately for those of us who don't live in areas where it is easy to purchase from a regular store, we have no choice but to purchase online. I know that I'm taking a chance but oh well...

Thanks for commenting!!!
