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 :)

Enjoyed reading my previous post
on the other flavour - Strawberry Milk Mask from My Beauty Diary as well?
Then you will sure to enjoy this post as well! :)
Presenting the ever adorable HELLO KITTY MASK IN HONEY STRAWBERRY FLAVOUR!!!
It helps to :
- Brightening, Nourishing, Moisturizing
- Regains skin suppleness & radiance
- Repair damaged due to skin dehydration
- Refreshing and minimizes wrinkles
Mask and packet are filled with essence of goodness! Remember not to throw them away after removing the mask. You can use the remaining essence for your face and neck massage! :)
So now you can see how terrible my dark circles are but I've got to clarify that I didn't remove my mascara on my lower lashes properly.
One main concern that I have with MBD masks is that they seem to tear more easily compared to their pioneer batches of masks. Also, the masks seem more translucent compared to the past. I guess perhaps this is the reason?
I used to mask while sitting and using the computer, just so I can kill 2 birds with 1 stone. But I've learnt that you face will sag if you do that and since I'm hitting the ageing age soon, I now religiously lie down while masking, thought my eyes will still be glued to my iPhone =x
Left it on for around 20 to 25mins and massaged the essence onto my face as usual. The smell of honey and strawberry was not as great compared to the Strawberry Milk flavour.
Once the mask was removed, I could see instant brightening of the face. Something similar to the effects of the Fancl's whitening mask as well as the MBD Hello Kitty Strawberry Milk flavour. But what differs this mask from the Strawberry Milk flavour is that it really soothens the skin and I was left with soft and supple skin after that! Very very soft like baby's butt cheeks! :P
Am very satisfied with MBD masks and hence, that explains my pending arrival of more MBD masks! Whoops =x
I skipped the revitalising cream from Kose Sekkisei Supreme and only applied the Moisturiser after that as I felt it might be too much and may cause oiliness over the night.
Overall rating :
I know that this Hello Kitty flavour range is not the latest updates by MBD, but will review them anyways :)
Exfoliation is always a must when it comes to masking because it open up your pores which allow the essence of goodness to seep into!
Will do a review on the exfoliating facial cleanser soon! :D
After exfoliation, pat your face dry, apply toner on your skin for better absorption of the essence! This time, I used the SK II facial lotion (toner) which was given as a trial set by Bellabox !
Will also do up a review on Bellabox too :)
After applying the toner, I then proceed to mask.
Bought 2 boxes of the MBD Hello Kitty masks - Strawberry Milk and Honey Strawberry :)
MBD Hello Kitty Honey Strawberry Flavour!
MBD Hello Kitty Strawberry Milk Flavour!
Way too cute right? Tried out the Strawberry flavour one which helps to whiten and smoothen the skin! :)
Mask is filled with lots of essence! Dripping kind - a little inconvenient because it might get a little messy...
It has strawberry smell too! :)
The essence keeps dripping to my neck although I was already lying down. I used to mask while sitting up but it's bad for your skin because it tends to cause sagging.
Held it on for approx 20 to 30mins and my face was really brighten instantly! I could see the difference! It had actually the same effect as the Black Pearl flavour from MBD.
I then massage the remaining essence into my face and neck, so don't throw away the package after you have taken out the mask!
After massaging, I then applied SK II facial essence (I know very kiasu right) and the SK II Cellumination Deep Surge EX from Bellabox.
Applied Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel after that... :)
Satisfaction level of product: 4.5/5 stars
Will I recommend this product : Yes :)
