Annie's Way Arbutin + Hyaluronic Acid Brightening Jelly Mask

My journey into K-beauty has also taken me into T-beauty. That's Taiwanese for those who don't know. Annie's Way is a Taiwanese brand that pops up a lot when T-beauty comes up, so I decided to find a mask and try it out. I recently won an auction for this on eBay, and got this massive 250 mL (8.33 oz) tub for 6$. SIX DOLLARS!!! The lowest priced tub on eBay the day that I'm writing this review (7/21/16) is going for 17.49$. But enough about what a great deal I got on this product. Let's get into the details!

Each tub comes with a tamper evident seal.

Claims: Whitening, moisturizing, reduces fine lines

Ingredients: Water, Carbomer, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tocotrienols, Ascorbic Acid, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Panthenol, Fragrance, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Alpha-Arbutin, Propylene Glycol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Methylisothiazolinone, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate.

When the sticker is removed, this is what you're left with: a bunch of voids.

Process: After cleansing and applying toner, apply the mask with the provided spatula to a thickness of 0.3-0.5 cm. After letting the mask set for 30 minutes, gently scrape off the mask and wipe off any residue with a tissue, then rinse the face. Apply moisturizer. Use twice weekly, or as needed. For sensitive skin, wear for only 15 minutes.

This definitely looks like hair gel.

Performance: I followed the directions listed on the packaging as closely as I could. I definitely left the mask on about 10 minutes longer than I should because I went out and walked my neighborhood playing Pokemon Go with my sister, but give me a break! Once I dried my face, my skin felt so incredibly soft. It LOOKED soft. And it felt super smooth and hydrated. There was an immediate brightening effect, too.

The evolution of the mask: (L) when first applied, (C) after 30 minutes, (R) after removal.

Final Thoughts: I'll definitely be adding this into my regular rotation. The claims on this are spot on. I love anything with hyaluronic acid in it, and it definitely plumps up my skin. I'm probably also gonna buy 1 (or all?) of the other varieties of jelly mask Annie's Way offers.

Where to Buy: Amazon | eBay | Yes StyleBeauteque | Beautibi

Kiss, Kiss
