My Beauty Diary Sake Yeast Mask

I actually was a little reluctant to try this after reading some reviews online but I was reaching the end of my assorted box.

The smell... Urgh! Guess I saw it coming from the name and the reviews I saw. It's a fermented alcohol smell that is quite strong. Use in well ventilated room loll

This is the Cooling Mask but they all look the same. Comfy, good fit, thin hydrating sheet, very moist.

The box says this is for 'Shining & Radiance' but I only felt a moisturizing effect as usual. Strangely, the sheet was more yellowish compared to the others. Also, it irritated my skin slightly (itchy & red spots became more inflamed). I'm sure it's authentic cos I bought it from the pharmacy and it was in the same box with the other whiter masks.

I'm looking to stock up on these online but not really sure where I can find a cheap, local & reliable seller. I'm aware of fake MBD masks in the market. You can read on a few ways to differentiate the fakes from the authentic ones HERE.

My conclusion : Will not repurchase this specifically but will definitely get more MBD masks in other variants.


  1. yes, i noticed the sake ones smelled rather...yeasty hahaha 
    and omg i can't believe there are fake MBD masks out there, but i usually buy mine from Sasa or Watson's. hopefully mine are authentic =X

  2. I really want to try MBD mask but dunno where to get here, LOL XD

  3. If theyre from those shops, it should be ok. Those from night markets or online may be fake. My friend got red bumps after using one.

  4. online? Im not sure if Sasa has them

    Hahaha... Yeast? SKII smell. LOLX!

  6. Been reading your blog for quite a while but this is my first time commenting,  have you try aloe vera one? and bird nest one is good too! highly recommend ;)


  7. SKII smells like yeast? ewww.. hahaha!

  8. Yup! I got the assorted box from Guardian Pharmacy. I found the aloe average only.. Black Pearl still my fav. I feel they are all moisturising but only Black Pearl, Bulgarian White Rose & Earl Grey Tea had much brightening effect. Any idea where to get them locally (apart from shops cos they're pricey)? Any trusted online sellers?

  9. Hmm this yeast scented sheet sounds interesting, lol. I've been using the strawberry yoghurt and choc truffle sheets, and they seem to temporarily exaggerate my red marks too, but my skin is always super soft and smooth the next day.

  10. Oh? Maybe try another type like Black Pearl? I wanted to try chocolate truffle but here, we gotta buy it with the set which I don't want.

  11. I like yyour blog..i follow U! :)

  12. I never heard of yeast before! : D : D I think this is very interesting! When I go to Taiwan, I will be sure to buy this! 

  13. I'm pretty sure sake is much better as a drink :-)

  14. At first i thought it didn't do any thing, so i put it on and went to sleep, i put on a sleeping pack i saved the same mask and used it twice because the thing was dripping with serum and i used it again the next day let it soak in then was my face with Clearasil and pat on some lotion,my mother came up to me and said OH your skin looks good and so radiant ! i was shocked i didn't notice it but others did i would buy again ,i have a very dull skin and when she said that i was so happy , my skin feels great! sorry it didn't work for you

  15. i know a website you can get it in singles! Heres the fb page ^.^

  16. Glad it worked for you! =) The Black Pearl is still the most efficient for me
