Sponsored Post: MINON Amino Moist Masks

 I always have this sense of guilt for not getting down to do a review of the beauty products I love.  Having said that, today I'm excited to share with y'all about these two masks which I've tried lately, and they cost below $25! Sometimes, you don't have to break your bank account to treat yourself at home. ;)

I am very sure that by now, this brand is no longer a stranger to most of you reading this. Especially if you’ve travelled to Japan often. MINON Amino Moist is a skincare series dermatologically developed by a pharmaceutical company for ladies with sensitive skin. MINON has also been a long selling brand of over 40 years that is highly trusted by medical practitioners as well as women in Japan.

Their masks are generally made with a gentle yet moisturizing formula
They are 100% Fragrance-free, Colourant-Free, Paraben-Free and Alcohol Free. 
If you don't already know, all their products are made of amino acids which are very moisturizing for the skin, making it highly suitable for people with dry skin

This mask is highly popular in Japan and has won numerous awards over the years. MINON Amino Moist Mask is the No.1 Mask in Japan for 2 consecutive years!

MINON Amino Moist's Moist Essential Masks help to reduce the appearance of fine lines caused by dryness and contains moisturizing ingredients which help to support barrier function and helps your skin to retain moisture more effectively. After putting on the mask, your skin will feel softer, supple and more hydrated.

Here is a close up of the mask, it is made of a soft fitting sheet with fibres that adhere closely to the skin without dripping.

I've tried last Thursday night and I really woke up with a more supple and hydrated skin! And they weren't lying when they said it helps in reducing fine lines caused by dryness. I was very impressed with the first usage. I like the fact that it’s neither dripping wet nor dry. It has the perfect amount of gel serum to it.

Even after masking, there is still so much of gel serum left from the mask! I’m not sure about you but I always want to get the most out of my masks, so I tend to squeeze the remaining serum from the mask or the mask sachet as I don’t want to waste it, I apply some on my neck, hands, elbows and knees. :)

MINON Amino Essential Moist Mask is unlike most masks in the market, it is soaked in a unique gel serum. They are indeed very moisturizing and absorbs very quickly into the skin. This definitely will come in handy, on days where I feel my skin is dry and less supple and I would love to give an extra moisture boost.

Moving on to latest whitening milk mask which was launched in April 2019...
"MINON Amino Moist introduces its latest whitening mask innovation to help those with sensitive skin achieve fairer and more beautiful skin."

A fairer, brighter and clearer skin is all that I have been trying to achieve! MINON Amino Moist Whitening Milk Mask goes a step further to help reduce spots, freckles and render a more fair and hydrated skin (especially for those with sensitive and dry skin, like mine!) Together with a low-irritant formulation, the mask will effectively retain moisture, delivers a whitening and soft skin effect and help in preventing roughness on your skin.

People with sensitive skin are more prone to external stimuli such as UV rays, air pollution and stress. Prolonged exposure to such stimuli results in accelerated production of melanin pigment that causes dark spots and a slowdown in skin cell turnover rate, which eventually leads to skin that is less supple and rough. 

Having to tackle this issue, MINON Amino Moist Whitening Milk Mask makes use of these 2 ingredients: 

Whitening ingredient - Ascorbic acid 2-glucoside 
(which helps in reducing melanin and protects skin from spots and freckles)

Anti-inflammatory ingredient - Dipotassium glycyrrhizinate 
(which moisturizes the skin, supports its barrier function and prevents roughness on the skin)

Used it right after I shower haha! 
Mask is made with a soft, form-fitting sheet with fibres that adhere closely to the skin without dripping. And recently I had to deal with an extremely dry, sensitive and dull skin and this mask was vital in getting my skin back in balance. The thick milky serum makes it extremely nourishing to the skin. I also love how it helps in brightening up my skin effectively and leaving it hydrated and glowing. I personally also figured out that the more I mask, the lesser breakouts I will get. (That includes choosing a right mask for your skin condition)

Yep no less, with the generous amount of milky serum content left in the mask has allow me to apply them onto my neck and both parts that are typically super dry like the elbows and knees. 

Before and after
I tried my best to take both under the same lighting~ Can you see the glow?! My skin felt so much softer, hydrated and healthier looking after the first application. Will use this on days where my skin needs a little pick-me-up! ;)

All in all, I enjoyed using them and treating myself a little after a long day at work. In fact, masks are usually very refreshing, and I always feel my whole skin is drenched in all the good stuff. You could say a mini spa at home. Both MINON Amino Moist masks are great for sensitive skin. Their sheet masks provide the skin with a lot of nourishment and moisture. Usually, I have to use several masks to notice how my skin reacts to them. But, I only need to use MINON's mask once and my skin already feels more supple and soft. It didn't clog my pores nor gave me any breakouts. My skin was also moisturized after using the mask; I can totally skip using a moisturizer that night! ^.^

MINON Amino Moist Whitening Milk Mask - $21.90 for 4 sheets

Now it is your turn to try it if you have not! 
Both masks are available at Watsons, Don Don Donki, Welcia-BHG, Tokyu Hands, Venus, Nishino, Mei-diya Supermarket, Metro, Robinsons and BHG.
