I know this product ain't the latest product Skinfood carries but I will still share it here :)
I used to refrain using rice mask because I had a minor breakout after using the rice mask from The Face Shop, but I couldn't 100% confirm if it was due to the rice mask since I had only tried once and that was eons ago.
Decided to give rice mask another chance and so I ordered this rice mask wash off from Skinfood online :)
So far so good, guess I'll have to monitor when I wake up tomorrow to observe any potential breakouts.
Doesn't smell like rice to me but very fragrant nevertheless :)
Doesn't feel very coarse in its grains
5 mins after application. it dissolves...
Left cheek with my sexy moles. Did I mention I have tonnes of moles? Sometimes I feel I can play 'Connect the Dots' on my face...
Need to first clarify that the red pinky patch is not due to any allergy or whatsoever, it's actually the reflection of my hot pink camera LOL
I think I include the freckles as one of the 'dots' for the game. Had freckles since I was very young, I'm thinking that I'm born with them.. :(
Forehead. Red pink reflection of camera.
Skinfood Rice Mask Wash Off
Exfoliating wash off scrub mask with minerals, vitamins and gamma oryzanol. Moisturizes and whitens the skin.
How to use?
Apply evenly after cleansing. Avoid eye and mouth area. Gently scrub and wash off with lukewarm water after 10 - 15 minutes.
To note :
1. Do not exfoliate before using the mask. Cleanse it as per normal using facial cleanser. As this mask acts as a scrub, over scrubbing and exfoliating might dry out and too much for your skin to take.
2. Do take note to apply the mask before applying toner.
Results : Immediate brightening but not as effective as the results I achieved using My Beauty Diary and Fancl masks, but still satisfactory nevertheless. Also, my skin feels smoother and more supple now. Application wise, though messy but I guess it's common for most similar masks which requires application using fingers.
Note that if you skin is smoothened, it's relatively easier to apply foundation/compact powder over it too :)

Kindly pardon my freckles, moles and disgusting dark circles :(
Tried the nose pack last night before I turned in. Bought these some time back.
Honestly, I do prefer the Biore Pore Pack which I have been a fan of for many years. Itching to try on new products, hence I bought these bean nose packs.
Comparing them to the usual Biore pore packs, this skin food ones are not as 'sticky'. They do not have a sticky back on the black smooth surface shown, unlike the Biore ones which stick onto your fingers before you can even stick them onto your nose!
But comparing the effectiveness, I do think the Biore pore pack does a better job. If you would like to achieve the sense of elation and satisfaction, you may also get the Black coloured Biore pore pack. From the contrasting colours of black pore pack and white heads, you can then see how many parasitic whiteheads have been residing in your pores and on your nose. Designed to remove both white heads and black heads, using the white coloured ones do allow you to view the black heads too! :D
And yes, there's a bean smell when using this bean nose pack. HAHA :D
To share the steps of using nose packs :
- Please exfoliate before sticking them on. This is to open up your pores for greater effectiveness.
- You are then required to wet your nose a little before you can stick them out, especially for this Skinfood nose pack, since there is no sticky element, you need to wet your nose even more so that they can stick better on your nose.
- Leave it on for 15 to 20 mins and then remove.
- Apply toner to close up your pores.
- Moisturise :)
For me, I do get itchy on my nose after using pore pack on certain attempts, regardless of the brand used. And for this time, using the Skinfood black bean nose pack did itched my nose :(Overall rating :
