Beauty x Giveaway: [MASK WEEK] Dr. Morita Ultra Slim Facial Masks & Snail Essence Watery Cream

Hey ladies! I decided to do something a little different this week (and actually force myself to be more hardworking in posting on my blog) XD I'll be doing a Mask Week this week where I'll be introducing a different mask that I've tried out and share my review everyday. For this first mask set from Dr. Morita, I'll be reviewing it with a special guest which is my sister! To make this series extra special, we'll be doing a giveaway as well so make sure you read till the end to find out more!

Dr. Morita is a Taiwan brand that specialises in skin care that contains medical-grade natural ingredients. Their facial masks are made of high quality of Tencel Silk cotton mask to pamper and nourish the skin. It's the No. 1 Best Selling Facial Sheet in Hong Kong and Taiwan and I've always wanted to try it. There are 13 series of facial sheet mask and 2 watery cream in Malaysia currently. I got to try out 2 of these masks and the Snail Essence Watery Cream.

   Whitening Essence Ultra Slim Facial Mask (Narcissus)   
Dr. Morita Whitening Essence Ultra Slim Facial Mask is known contain no harmful or toxic ingredients. Because it is so thin, it can penetrate into the skin's pores and reach into the layers below to nourish the cells from within. The packaging is pretty straightforward and simple, notice the little red narcissus on the top as it's the main ingredient of the mask. Some ingredients include narcissus tazetta bulb extract that inhibits the generation of melanocytes, effective for blemished skin. It also contains brightening properties which helps in maintaining the skin's youthful and healthy glow. Mandelic acid, which is a natural ingredient extracted from almonds, is a gentle and soothing agent that helps to lighten skin tone. Organic lavandula angustifolia extract brightens dull skin while organic chamomilla recutita flower extract conditions the skin and balances the moisture level, making skin supple and moisturised. 

I tried the whitening mask while my sister tried the one for repairing. There are 5 sheets in a box. Once you open it up, you'll see this little rectangular sheet inside with the shimmery foil. I believe that you're supposed to use it as a guide to fit your face before peeling it off. See how thin the mask is beneath the foil? After cleansing the face, apply the mask and leave for 10-15 minutes then gently pat the essence into the skin. For best results, use daily!

Honestly, I don't see much difference before and after using the mask, though it does look like I'm fairer in photos (might be the lighting). Of course, my skin is much more moisturised after using the mask and it's safe to say that the mask does not leave a sticky feeling. Of course, the mask should be used everyday to get more obvious results.
Price: RM22.90
Volume: 5 pcs/box

   Repair Essence Ultra Slim Facial Mask (Snail)   
Spoiler alert: The Dr. Morita Repair Essence Ultra Slim Facial Mask is the better mask of the two :p It contains hydrolysed yeast extract that works to give you supple, firm and moisturised skin. The main ingredient is snail secretion filtrate. Now, the snail trend has been on the rise for a few years now in skin care products as it can moisturise and repair the skin while actively promoting skin cells regeneration for a youthful glow. Organic buddleja davidii extract and peucedanym ostruthium leaf extract from the European Alps makes it suitable for soothing sensitive skin and effectively reduces the loss of skin's production of hyaluronic acid. It also contains anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties that helps in capturing free radicals so as to reduce aging and tissue damage.

I got my sister to try out this mask since she was back for her sem break. From the photo, you can see that her skin is less red and looks much brighter. Don't let the snail ingredient scare you off, the smell is quite soothing! My sis did note that the mask dries pretty quickly too, which means it gets absorbed quickly into the skin. I believe this skin would work best for people who are trying to combat aging.

Us being noobs with our facial masks on XD The mask fits my sis, but it's actually slightly bigger than my face, was pretty sad that it's not a perfect fit. I've tried thinner facial mask than this, but the texture of this silk mask is really soft that it actually tore when I was applying it. 

What we like:
- Soft texture of the silk mask
- Soothing scent from both masks (mine smells like narcissus flower)
- Absorbs really quickly into the skin due to its thin texture
- Brightens up and moisturises face well

What we don't:
- Slightly larger size sheet, doesn't fit my face perfectly
- Whitening mask does not really work for me
Price: RM22.90

   Snail Essence Watery Cream   
After using a mask, it's important to use a moisturiser to lock in the moisture of your skin. The packaging is a simple plastic tub and the instructions on the box are all in Chinese. Fortunately for me, there are English instructions on the outer plastic layer :p 

Just like the mask, this Snail Essence Watery Cream contains naturally extracted snail secretion filtrate as well to moisturise skin from within which makes it the perfect pairing for the Repair Essence Ultra Slim Facial Mask. Other ingredients in the mask include hyaluronic acid (sodium hyaluronate) which has a super moisturising factor to keep your skin in deep hydration all-day long, supple and wrinkle-free. It also has tremella fuciformis sporocarp extract that contains mucosaccharide and other moisturising agents to promote skin hydration and avoid moisture loss. Last but not least, this moisturiser also contains hydrolyzed collagen which has the ability to strengthen skin firmness and elasticity while smoothing fine lines to prevent skin aging.

I've tried other snail filtrate skincare before which are in cream form, this moisturiser reminds me of my water-based gel moisturiser from Cremorlab. The scent is similar as well, sort of reminds me of agar-agar? It's a very pleasant scent and is not overpowering so I don't hate it.

You can apply this moisturiser from the center of the face towards the contour and neck area daily, in the day and night. Admittedly, my skin has been really dry lately so this Snail Essence Watery Cream really hydrated my skin from within. You can even apply a thicker layer and use this moisturiser as a sleeping mask. However, it doesn't have the brightening effect that my Snail White cream has the next day. 

What I love:
- Smells pleasant
- Almost instanteneous hydration, suitable for people with dehydrated skin
- Reduces redness, doesn't stimulate sensitive skin
- Non-sticky
- Affordable

What I don't:
- Doesn't have much of a brightening effect
Price: RM39.90
Volume: 100ml
Where to Buy: Exclusively at Guardian pharmacies nationwide
