Okie… so I’m on a MASK frenzy lately as my skin has been feeling very blah. I’m pretty positive that it’s due to stress.
My sister in law did rave about Cortry Face Mask some time ago so I got one during lunch at Guardian for 2SGD ( really cheap!)Here’s my thoughts on this all natural herbal treatment.
*I love taking pictures with mask, it hides all my imperfections*

What it did for me?
This Cortry Starter Pack contains 2 mask, one neck mask and one face mask.
I slapped on Cortry’s Face Mask for 15 minutes exactly and I must say that the mask was a strange brown color ( totally weird) and a little funky smelling. I did not expect it to be super herbal but at least I know that the brown color was most likely coming from the Active Herbal Ingredient Ling Zhi.
After 15 Minutes, my face felt seriously moisturized. My skin felt like it had been soaked in a herbal bath and the after feeling kinda left me with mixed feelings. The mask made me feel like my skin had been totally moisture deprived.
Towards the end of 15 minutes, I was desperate to get the ill fitting mask off my face only because of the funky herbal smell. It reminded me of the black Chinese Tonic ( holds nose) that my dad used to brew.
Afterwards, my skin looked very plump, very moisturized without any oily film and very relaxed. Yea, I know it’s a bit strange to say that my skin looks relaxed but it seriously looked like I had gotten a good night’s rest and there was a mild brightening effect too ( I suspect that this is the effect of the pearl powder ingredient). Another plus is that my red post acne scars looked less inflamed.
Ingredients wise, I am quite a fan. It’s not packed full of a thousand different ingredients but I know that it contains a few potent ones such as pearl powder, green tea and Ling Zhi,which is one of the most effective Chinese herbs around.
~A little info on Herbal Ingredient LINGZHI~
Ling Zhi Health benefits:
Aids in strengthening of immune system, chronic bronchitis & Asthma, Diabetes, etc… & Boost Beauty Benefits:
Lingzhi retains and regulates water in the skin and helps maintain the skin's elasticity, keeping the skin hydrated and smooth. It also helps to inhibit the formation and deposit of melanin in skin. Today, Lingzhi beauty care products are becoming new stars in the cosmetic industry. By adding Lingzhi into the bath, not only can skin be kept smooth but it can also help prevent bacterial infections.
Would I repurchase?
This is a mask I love and hate.
I would repurchase for the brightening and moisturising effectiveness. Plus the fact that it made my skin very supple. The mask has a lovely oriental packaging that gives no indication of it’s very affordable price.
I would not repurchase because it’s stinky, brown in color and it's too small for my face :( I am actually pretty particular about the packaging and actual look of a product…….Oh and I actually left the used mask on a piece of paper and it stained the paper brown too.. Kinda repulsive for a clean freak like me… hahaha
