Blogger Mail | The Hiro House Matcha Face Mask

Saturday, 2 June 2018

Around early last month, I’ve started looking for some locally produced face masks and I’ve encountered @thehirohouse (such a coincidence that we have major love for concrete deco pieces!) and after exchanging DMs via Instagram, they sent me this mask just to try and although they didn't request me to review the product, I've decided to do it anyway so let's get into this! 




Description:

The key ingredients:

  • French Green Clay: has the ability to absorb oil and bacteria from your skin and pores. It’s beneficial in removing impurities and tightening the pores, toning the skin, exfoliating dead skin cells and reducing inflammation in acne. 
  • Green Tea: Powerful antioxidants provide powerful skin detox, stimulates and rejuvenates skin cells. 
  • Aloe Vera powder: Ability to soothe, hydrate and nourish the skin tissue.

Packaging:




The face mask comes in a simple glass jar with a white lid and packaged within a brown box with product label on it.  I actually kind of digging this kind of minimalist style although I do wish that the box is sturdier however they shipped the product with layers of bubble wraps so I was relieved that it actually survived 1000 miles trip from one end of Malaysia to my place.





There's a full English product description at one side of the box; explaining the product star ingredients and their suggestions of product usage. Although the mask comes in powdered form, it's still to be used up within 12 months as indicated on the box.


Impression:





I honestly don’t think I ever tried a powdered mask up to this mask so it is indeed a first for me. I gotta say that the first few times were a struggle to get the right amount of powder and water ; it can me too thick I felt like I wasting product or too thin as the mask kept on running down on my face to my shirt but after I’ve gotten that measuring spoons from Daiso, I’m good. The ratio for me is 1 (spoonful of product) : 1 (spoonful of water)  which is just perfect.






I was mixing this in a small bowl on the kitchen counter when mum walked in.

Mom: Is that drinkable? I think I've seen those matcha powder in Starbucks before.
Me: Sure, mom. 

Mum wanted to take some into a cup and then I freaked out as she didn't get my sarcasm. So, yes. Please don't leave this around unattended. :D Now, let's get to the next part of this review!


Application:



I applied the mask using facial brush (not in picture) on my whole facial area (avoiding eye area) and slightly on the neck area. There’s a faint scent of green tea which is fine and I do feel the tightening sensation when the mask started to dry out and then I'll rinse it off after 20 to 30 minutes; depending on how early I got in the morning.




I just love how smooth and soft my skin becomes after every usage, I don’t feel this drying out at all but of course, I’d be misting my whole face with facial mist that I have in my bathroom to prevent that as I'm not taking any chance! I’ve noticed that whenever I use this mask in the morning, my T-zone area becomes non-oily and I didn't have to reapply finishing powder or to blot even if I were to merely use tone-up sunscreen for the day.

Final verdict:

I haven’t been into wash-off masks for so long (other than my Skinfood wash-off masks which are staple) but after seeing @lezelasrie doing wash-off masks so religiously (thanks, babe! for all the awesome tips!!) almost everyday makes me want to get some for myself.

Overall, 5/5. To my fellow Malaysian beauty enthusiasts, this mask is simple and great so do check them out! I’m not gonna stress on the less fancy packaging that some of you might not be fan of as I no longer a sucker for packaging for the past year or so. I've also been clearing out lots of boxes and packaging of products that I've kept for so-called aesthetics then I've realised they're all trash that I need to get rid of.

I’ve actually liked this face mask so much on the first try enough for me to get the rest of its sisters from Picksum.com the very next day plus I think they were having promotions on these so I guessed, why not?




I’m loving the part when I get to use different mask at different facial area with different concern; my fave combination so far is Matcha and Calm so do let me know if you want me to show you guys on Instagram Stories.


I guess that's all from me! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and please let me know your thoughts by leaving comments down below. Until next post!
