From left to right: Extra Rich, Whitening, Elasticity


Since my Kracie Black mask and Eye mask review, here come my second part of Kracie mask experience. I spotted the complete mask range in Watson’s MY and I decided to give the others a try since Watson’s TH did not carry the complete range. I grabbed Moisturizing (red), Whitening (blue) and Elasticity (orange), the only one that I ignored was the anti-acne mask in green packaging. Each of them costs MYR9.80/sheet if I remember well.



  • Moisturizing Extra Rich (25ml/sheet) is infused with Hyaluronic acid and Royal jelly for severe dry skin.
  • Moisturizing Whitening (20ml/sheet) is medicated treatment with concentration of Vitamin C derivative and botanical extracts to hydrating and brightening.
  • Moisturizing Elasticity (25ml/sheet) is enriched with coenzyme Q10 and soybean essence for skin moisturizing and firmness.


About the ingredient lists: Well, the translated ingredient that listed on the mask packaging does not belong to the correct mask. Following the product’s claim, the ingredient list Moisturizing Extra Rich’s and Moisturizing Whitening‘s are wrongly swapped and I finally searched a correct ingredient list of Moisturizing Elasticitys that matches with its original Japanese ingredient list. Some of the Japanese products that sold in Thailand are also not having correct and matched ingredient list with the Japanese translation, obviously only minority concerns about ingredient list.

About the direction: Best use on night time so you can see the good result in next morning. Use it after toning/lotion, leave on for 10-15 minutes, massage the remaining essence into skin, follow by moisturizer. Personally I misted a mineral spa water prior to placing on the mask and left it for 20~30 minutes! Even after 30 minutes honestly, the mask sheet was still very juicy! I feel guilty to waste.


About the mask essences: All three contain hydrating factors, so moisturizing effect can be expected. The mask essences of these three are almost scentless, non-sticky, non-irritating eventhough accidentally contacted with eyes and it can be easily massaged into skin. Probably slightly heavy for oily skin but for me, they worked very fine in humid weather. In fact, Kracie mask is one of those very few that I do not mind to leave on the mask essence without rinsing it off after the application. Interestingly, the mask essence of Elasticity was in the form of emulsion, unlike the clear gel-fluid consistencies of Extra Rich and Whitening.

About the mask sheet textures. I love they were very well-adhered to skin good through the 20~30 minutes mask time. Only thing was that the cutting did not fit my smaller face perfectly, hence I need a little time to adjust the placement.


About the results. In fact my skin looked rather red right after mask applications due to increased skin temperature (suffocated by mask) as my sensitive skin was easily flushed with heat/warm temperature, but that was only temporary for few minutes.


With the Moisturizing Extra Rich, my face was very well-moisturized, temporary only. I tried this in the morning and I actually rinsed off the mask essence because I wanted to use my antioxidant serum on latter time, thus the moisturizing factor of the mask had been voided. However when I smeared the little remaining mask essence over the face again (after sunblock), the dry lines and pore size were immediately refined again. This is good.


With the Moisturizing Whitening, I saw immediate moisturizing effect but no brightening result, nor even skin tone. I did not rinse off the essence this time so I just applied sunblock on top of the mask essence. It provided moisture as good as a moisturizer but failed to deliver as a whitening mask in my opinion.


With the Moisturizing Elasticity, the noticeable effect was only limited to subtle moisturizing (my skin was well-balanced at that time), nothing more. I applied sunblock over the mask essence, it kept the skin non-drying in humid weather but nothing impressive to be honest.

Conclusionally, these three Kracie masks have shown justifiable, lovely moisturizing results but not much in other aspect. They are very nice in term of application as well as comfortable wearing, provided you are not result-oriented of what they claim (Extra Rich, Whitening and Elasticity).
