very affordable peel off mask
Some beauty gurus say egg whites / albumin are good for the skin. However, I'm not really into putting fresh eggs on my skin (fear of salmonella!). So, while browsing products at BeautyMNL, I stumbled upon this Mistine Egg White Peel of Mask. It's made from Thailand and it's affordable so I tried it. It promises to "help tighten pores, firmer and smoothen skin as well as reduce acne, acne scars, redness and less breakouts. After applying this mask, your face will be become tighten, amazing whitened, poreless, tighten, good oil balancing, supple and in good texture." I followed the instructions. I spread it on my face and let it sit for 20 or so minutes. I couldn't move my face / I couldn't talk for 20 minutes ("tiis-ganda") . By the way, I find the scent too strong but at least it's not stinky as real egg whites. When I peeled off the mask, my skin felt dry, I had to put on a considerable amount of moisturizer. To be fair, the mask somehow tightened my pores. I'm not recommending this for those with sensitive / very low pain threshold. In my personal experience, I found it painful to remove and it's really drying on the skin. For the price, I shouldn't be complaining.
