For all you mask aficionados out there, I'm sure all of you have heard of Timeless Truth Masks (TT), the newest brand of Masks to hit our Malaysian shores :) I've always wanted to review one of their masks and thanks to Plusizekitten, The Butterfly Project, and TT's collaboration, I was given that chance!!!
But I digress :p Here's what's in the bulging envelope!!!
There are two different types of masks in there, one is the Swallow's Nest Whitening Mask (from Plusizekitten's Easter Giveaway) and the other is the Instantaneous Brightening Cooling Mask (which I got from The Butterfly Project's Big Mask Review Party). Suanne from TT accidentally added in an extra Brightening Cooling Mask, but I'm not complaining :D If anything, I'm even more thrilled!!! Included in the envelope there's also a 20% discount voucher, so I can use it anytime I want to buy more masks from TT :)
The mask that I will be reviewing today will be the TT Instantaneous Brightening Cooling Mask
The mask contains STAY-C®50 which reduces dark spots and slows down formation of melanin to allow even toned finish for the skin and brings back clarity. It is one of the best active ingredients for skin whitening, and builds a blockage for UV rays.
If you look closely, you would see little droplets of condensation on the pack. This is because I store the masks in the fridge to cool them down before I use them. I've read somewhere that they actually improve the efficacy of the mask and the coolness of the mask will give your skin a cooling sensation :) But then again, I don't think I needed to do it for this mask as this particular mask is a cooling mask :p
So here's a rare pic of me sans makeup and just after shower >.< as you can see from the pic, the mask fits perfectly on my face, but perhaps because the mask is not really stretchable, that it kinda lifts up from my nose to cheek area, making it a dead zone. I had to rearrange the mask quite a few times as the contact was not great in that area.
Verdict: 7/10. The one thing I loved about this mask is the cooling sensation. The minty feeling freshened me right up, and it absorbs fairly quickly into my skin after I took it off. My skin felt more supple after usage, and while there was no drastic change in my skin tone, it did brighten up my look a little. Another thing I liked was that the mask was drenched in the solution, thereby making it really moist and you don't have to worry that you don't have enough of the solution on your face when you put on the mask. Check out the excess solution in that pic above.
Repurchase: Yes :)
If you're interested in getting masks from Timeless Truth, they will be opening up a booth at this weekend's upcoming International Beauty Expo in Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from 18-21 May 2013. If you're around the area, go and say hi! and purchase some of those awesome masks because they will be selling it at a discount!
They will be in Hall 1, of the Taiwan Pavilion, Booth number 2003 and 2005. If you want a particular type of mask, please make your reservations with the team, as there will be limited number of units available during IBE itself. For more information, head on over to their facebook page!
I've tried another of their masks from the Mivva April box, and the review for that will be up soon :) Suffice to say that if you want a good mask, TT is the one to look for :)
