SANA Facial Moisturizing Mask

Posted on: May 29, 2010


36ml, this is truly a generous amount of mask essence that I have ever seen in drugstore mask. HKD9.90/36ml, sounds even better? It contains no mineral oil, colorant and fragrance, as well as brightening ……. I must grab one to try.



SANA is a Japanese drugstore line with the main ingredient – soybean. I had read their soy emulsion received a good rave for sensitive skin in Japan magazines, but I didn’t want to get their other products since many of them contain alcohol.



The ingredient list is in Japanese, the first ingredient is soybean, followed by water; hence the color of this mask essence is a tad opaque. It doesn’t smell like soybean, the smell actually got me thinking of hospital, kind of medicine odour, I guess that is the smell of fermented soybean?



With the amount more than a bottle of normal essence, I bet the mask will still attach to skin firmly even you jog and jump. I wore the mask while doing my housekeeping, for arund 30 minutes (double the time of 15 minutes that stated in the direction), the mask sheet on jaw line never fell and it stayed on well as though I newly placed on. I went for 10 seconds rope-jumping later, it passed my notorious test. (“b)



The mask essence is very gentle, non-irritating to skin and eye, totally comfortable wearing. The essence actually slipped into one of my eye a little bit, yet I felt nothing, no redness or irritation. After removing the mask, skin texture didn’t look refined but really moist all day long on the testing day, which was cloudy, less humid with cool breeze. Also, it was non-sticky and absorbed rapidly into skin. I don’t think it imparted any brightening anyway, the skin was glowing but not even-toned like whitening mask did. Because I wanted to apply anti-aging serum, so I rinsed off the excess mask essence with clean water, followed by soothing toner, serum and sunscreen.



I’m more than happy to recommend this calming, moisturizing mask to dry, dehydrated, sensitive skin. Bought this at Sasa store Hong Kong during my previous trip.
