My Scheming: Herbal Anti-Acne Mask Review

WHAT IS IT: My Scheming: Herbal Anti-Acne Mask


My Scheming: Herbal Anti-Acne Mask: The mask contains orris and green tea extracts that can balance oil secretion and relieve oily skin problems in teens. Allantoin, Hamamelis and Chamomile extracts in the mask can relieve skin problems, reduce inflammation and tighten pores, moisturizes the skin, improves skin quality and prevents an allergic reaction.

Each box contains 10 sachets of mask, each weighing 30g with the mask essence ♥♥♥

Here's a look at inside the sachet itself.

And I realized I tend to have the tendency to do facial mask such as My Scheming when I am fresh out of the shower xD

And when it's time to snap this photo, showing the plastic attached to the mask, I kinda have a feeling that this piece of thin plastic is trying to say "Ahhhh..." Oh well, I'm creepy with these type of things lol

VERDICT: Well, considering that this isn't the first My Scheming mask I have reviewed. But still, I want to go on and on about how I love My Scheming masks, I wish I have every box of available variety in my house, waiting for me to use them all!! But well, I'm afraid of the expiry date encroaching closer before I can use them all up. I bought this box a month back with the S$5.00 Watsons voucher that I have gotten for completing a health survey. I knew I need a box of mask, but well, I was short of cash. So, the survey was close to a nice early birthday present. I have tried looking at the Watsons near my area, but I always couldn't find them. Until I feedback to My Scheming on Facebook, and the very next night, I saw everything single variety of My Scheming masks displayed out in all it's pretty glory. *coughs* Watsons, you damn slow ah...

Anyways, I previously do have pimples popping up, but it's mostly 1 or 2 that showed up unexpectantly without warning and yet thankfully, managed to subside rather quick too. Until a week ago, I got all 3 of them around my chin area. I figured those 3 pimples could have been BFF since this is practically the first time I had 3 all at the same time. Oh no, I did wash my face daily, twice as a matter of fact, once in the morning when I crawled out of bed and another one more time before I go to bed and start my "Oinking" session. And no, I didn't really sleep that late since I wasn't playing any MMO games in the middle of the night and heck, I didn't even watch any TV too. Sleep is too important!!

So, I am guessing it could have been the weather, environment or something I ate that aggravated all 3 into making an un-announced arrival. And lucky me, I had this box of Herbal Anti-Acne Mask at hand to help solve the problem. As most of you are aware of, my pimples tend to be the stubborn type that shows up, lingers on my face for as long as it possibly can while causing me pain, anguish and agony whenever I accidentally brushed it before it finally decides to go away. And before that "pain, anguish and agony" chapter had even started, I used this mask for close to 4 days in a row.

According to what I read on the box packaging, this Herbal Anti-Acne Mask contains orris and green tea extracts which balances oil secretion, and the Allantoin, Hamamelis, and Chamomile extracts relieve skin problems, reduce pores and inflammation. And yes, I did moisturize every night before I sleep too. So, kinda baffles me where the excess sebum seemed to come from. Oh yes, I definitely do have the regular skin problems most people are suffering from. The only part of my face spared from pimples are actually my cheeks, no wonder people like to pinch them when they had the chance -_-"

As mentioned, I dutifully proceed with my usual facial cleansing regime every night, sometimes I switch around by doing those spreadable and peelable masks to lift away impurities and dead skin cells before applying this mask, so that my skin will be able to absorb the mask essence and do it's magic work on my poor "abused" skin. And not forgetting to mention that wonderful scent whenever I peeled open the sachet to get access to the mask, I just love it, it always manages to calm me down sufficiently enough for me to lay still and do nothing while the mask is doing it's work on my face.

And after 4 laborious days of applying this mask every night, I am happy and ecstatic to announce that my pimples trio didn't look as "inflammed" a.k.a red as compared to before. Normally, it will be a large blot of angry looking sore spot where the pimple is, making the pimples really obvious on my face when I have to step out of the house. But after using this for 4 days, I didn't see any large red and angry red spots at all. It's as if the pimples themselves look more like mosquito bites than actual pimples.

And remember in some of my previous posts on how I mentioned my pimples tend to take too long to decide whether it should ripen or go away? Well, by the 3rd day of using this Herbal Anti-Acne Mask, the pimples trio decided to ripen, to my surprise. I got rid of the pus via the not so recommended method, which is to pop them up manually. And I continued to use it on the 4th day, now those pimple trios are fast disappearing away into oblivion. And I believe I found another BFF in My Scheming masks, on top of the Milk Extract Brightening Mask and Deep Cleansing Pore Minizming Mask. This made it 3 BFFs I have found in the My Scheming mask range.

VERDICT: Controlling naughty pimples trio, checked!
