WATSONS Bird's Nest Essence Whitening & Firming Facial Review

Watson $18
Another sheet mask review, because I currently on a sheet mask addiction! I brought this while I was in Hong Kong. You can purchase this from Watson stores or online. The one I purchased in particular is a single facial mask and eye mask. It is also available in a box of 6 facial masks. 

Descriptions: "For centuries, bird's nest has been recognised as one of the most valuable beauty supplement. With its nourishing power, Watsons Bird Nest Facial Mask leaves your skin silky smooth and with natural radiance."

Benefits: "Maintains skins youth glow and fairness. Energises skin to enhance natural resilience and preserve vitality of skin"

When I opened the packaging, the scent was very VERY strong, it does fade however some people may find it overwhelming. It reminded me of Comfort - a UK brand fabric conditioner... The sheet was soft and slightly thicker than other sheet mask, so it won't tear. Neatly folded and drenched in a rich gel-like solution. The sheet has multiple slits, so that you can adjust it accordingly to your face shape. It also has a flaps for the eyes, which is really nice feature when laying down.

I used this mask after cleansing my face and left it on 25 minutes. I was quite disappointed with the results; considering the solution was rich, you would think that it would leave your skin plumped, that was not the case - I did not notice any hydration to my skin. It also left some residue and excess essence behind, which took a while for my skin to absorb. On the bright side, my skin tone was slightly more evened.

Rating: 3.5/10

Pros:
  • Durable sheet
  • Nice sheet design - adjusts to face shape and has flaps for the eye area
  • Loads of essence
  • Slightly evens and brighten skin tone
Cons:
  • Strong scent, some people may find it overwhelming
  • Did not moisture my skin very well
  • Leaves residue
  • Not easily accessible
Would I recommend?: Nope - probably the worst mask I have a tried so far. It did not offer any hydration and left quite a bit of residue. Not much benefit to my skin.

Have you tried any Watson products? ^^

  18. I realised all my sheet masks are all expired now so i'm on a sheet mask addition now too! I just bought a few, not a lot since it's expensive here and to import as well >__> lucky you stocked up in HK!! But $18?!?!?! I'm going to assume that's HKD... but it's still expensive xD like $2.80
    Would have been worth it if it actually did something good :(
