Silk Whitia Aromatherapy Facial Mask (Lavender) Review

If you ask me what’s the best skincare product for both long term benefits and short term boost, I’d say facial masks especially sheet masks. Because they’re loaded with highly concentrated serum, with the wrap and pressure of the mask, the nutrients get better absorption by the skin. They’re also great before makeup which gives you a more even application. I’ve tried a lot of sheet masks from drugstore brands to department store brands. Most of them do more or less decent jobs and they greatly differ by scent and fitting. So today I will be reviewing the Silk Whitia Aromatherapy Facial Mask that I’ve been using for 3 weeks. I use one mask every other day.

Availability: Sasa.com

Price: $17.90 (5 piece), sometimes there’s a buy one get one free promotion

What It Says On The Package

Aromatherapy Facial Mask

Aroma releases pressure and helps blood circulation when used with collagen mask. Improves skin complexion and strengthens skin tissue with its enhanced moisture.

Lavender Whitening Mask

The refreshing and mild Lavender essence is the few that can directly be applied onto face without dilution. In light purple colour, the Lavender Whitening Mask effectively improves the skin by fading black dots and whitening the face. Good for all skin types.

Application:

Place the Lavender Whitening Mask onto cleansed skin and leave it on face for about 20 to 30 minutes, then remove and rinse face with water. Use daily for best results.

Contents:

Lavender, Cojic Acid*, Ascobet, Hydrolyzed Protein, Potanical Extracted*, Ginkgo Leaf Extracted

* I think it meant Kojic Acid and Botanical Extracts

And the Chinese information was printed as well if you’re interested. The material was from France. Do not apply on sensitive skin.

Compared to the other Silk Whitia sheet masks I had before, the Aromatherapy series is a little bigger and they come in a plastic bag packaging instead of the cardboard box. Read my previous post here to see the packaging.

Inside the packaging there’s also a difference. The non-Aromatherapy masks are just folded in the packaging but the Aromatherapy ones have a foam sheet inside the mask. That makes it easier to unfold the mask and it also helps preserve more serum.

My thoughts about Silk Whitia Aromatherapy Facial Mask in Lavender:

What I like:

– Like all Silk Whitia masks, Aromatherapy Lavender has thin and stretchy materiel which makes it fit better on the face.
– The lavender scent is light but very refreshing and relaxing. It makes a great aromatherapy product.
– There is a noticeable whitening effect immediately after removing the mask. It also does a great job in smoothing and moisturizing.
– They give you plenty of liquid on the mask, so literally your skin is soaked in the serum.
– It can be used daily.

What could be better:

– Not recommended for sensitive skin.
– After removing the mask, the fluid needs to be rinsed off.
– The whitening effect does not last over several hours.
– Without promotion discount, it’s pricy.
– Typo on the packaging really lowered the value of it.
– Hard to find. I only see the brand on sasa.com.

Rate it:

Packaging: 8/10
Pricing: 7/10
Value: 8/10
Scent: 9/10
Product: 8/10

Overall: B

Final thoughts:

I like the Silk Whitia masks mainly for their fit. All of them are made of high quality stretchy material that fits nicely on my face. As for this specific mask, the fainted lavender scent is not too strong but it’s good enough to make you enjoy the aromatherapy. It does what it claims, whitening and moisturizing. I do wish the whitening effect could last longer though. That’s why on the package it says “Use daily for best results”. Compared to the popular My Beauty Diary masks, Silk Whitia is more expensive even with “buy one get one free” discount. So if you want to try these masks, I think you should get them when they’re on sale. But overall, I really like them and they’re worth trying.

    i’ve heard so many people trying (and raving) about silk whitia but i haven’t tried anything from it so far ^_^!! thanks for the review, i’ll prefer the beauty serum to be absorbed (vs. rinsing off) after peeling it off 🙂

      yea that’s one thing that really sucks. not sure why i need to rinse it off but oh well. i wish i could rub the goodness into my skin instead of washing off.

    i’ve heard so many good things about silk whitia masks… but i’m so hesitant to try them…
    because of the price…
    if i fall in love with them && can’t afford them it would be quite sad =[ lol
    lovely review~~ it sounds like a good product to try because of the whitening even though it only lasts a couple hrs

      you should try the ones that have buy one get one free. sasa always have several types on sale and you’ll probably find one that you like. that’ll bring the price down ^^

      i think the result is better with silk whitia and i do like the stretchy material as well. but MBD has a lot of selections that i really like. so i use both brands.

    Silk Whitia masks are great! The whitening + moisturizing mask is my favorite, even if the brightening/whitening effect doesnt last, i feel it helps speed up brighten my dark spots. 🙂

      it’s in the yellow packaging right? does it smell bad? i’m scared of the asian herbal scents.

        I thought the packaging is blue and green. I use the anti-oxidation one (blue) and the whitening one (green). They actually smell really nice. ^0^
