WHY I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
I rarely buy any premium face mask (Shiseido, SK-II, etc) because I find them really expensive and as a student, I can’t quite afford it. Plus, you only use it once and then it goes in the trash. This is a drugstore mask that I discovered a little over a year ago. Honestly, drugstore masks are getting better and better for moisturizing and whitening. Purederm is one of the brand that’s under Adwin Korea Group, which is a company that’s from Korea. In Hong Kong, you can find this brand in Watson’s, SaSa and many other drug/beauty stores, which is where I first discovered this brand. They have a wide range of masks: Hydrating (purple), Moisturizing (yellow), Brightening (pink) and Refining (green).


This specific mask is the Brightening (pink colour) and when you first open the mask, there is a very light herb scent. This mask is not sticky but it’s actually quite slippery. It absorbs really fast and it leaves my skin feeling really soft. It makes my skin looking radiant the next morning. However with that being side, even though this is a whitening mask, the whitening result is not intense. I would recommend My Beautiful Diary masks for better whitening result. You can find this mask in Wal-Mart and they usually sell for $1.50 to $2 CAD each but sometimes they sell them in packs of six for around $6 CAD, which makes each mask for $1 CAD. That’s a really good deal!

RATING
Product (4/5) – Just because the whitening results are not intense
Cost (5/5)
Ease of Use (5/5)
Packaging (4/5) – Some of the writings are in Korean and I can’t read it.
