Nothing like recovering from a sick week with a sheet mask.
Except having to constantly blow your nose once you put it on.
This is the second mask I’ve tried from My Scheming, and probably my current favorite mask of all time. Why? Because it actually does what it’s supposed to do, and I dig that. So I’m telling you now, this will be a positive review. I feel like it’s important to state that, since I feel like I haven’t had very many of those lately.
Also, it’s black. BLACK.
If you can remember pretty far back, I was disappointed by the My Beauty Diary Black Pearl Mask (my very first review!) because I wrongly thought it would be black. It wasn’t. But this one is! Almost a year later, I can finally indulge in the wonder that is a true black face mask. Even if it feels kind of… wrong. You understand.

From My Scheming:
High concentrations of hyaluronan provides excellent moisturizing power to skin and can effectively improve rough, dry, and cracked skin conditions. Pure hyaluronan provides refreshing sensation when using and can be easily absorbed by your skin and can thus provide your skin with the additional moisture it needs with a silky, smooth touch.
[Directions for use]
1. After facial cleansing, open the mask and apply flat on the face.
2. Use fingers to gently adjust the mask until it is properly attached to face.
3. Wait for 15 – 20 minutes before removing the mask.
4. Pat the essence on face lightly until it is dry and fully absorbed by skin.
5. Cleanse face once again by individual preference even thought not necessary.
Yay! Black! This mask even feels more velvety than its white counterparts. Maybe I’m imagining it. But seriously, it’s so soft and luxurious. This mask also comes with a TON of wonderful hydrating liquid that’ll be leftover in the pouch, so make sure to utilize that when you’re done!
It also smells incredible. The last My Scheming mask (which I thought was going to be black also, but NO) I covered smelled hideously like Clinique Happy. This one… well, it kind of does, but in a way that’s not like Clinique Happy at all. Similar but good. You got me? Also, if you have an aversion to strong scents, you should probably stay away from this one.
This mask also has a really good fit for my face. Looking at the picture it might not seem like it, but… it fit like a glove. A face-glove. Yeah, the nose part never fits perfectly, but the rest was awesome.
After I took it off my face felt super hydrated and stayed that way until I woke up this morning. The kicker? My skin wasn’t as oily as normal this morning. A miracle? Well, I don’t know, but I think I’ve found a keeper.
I can’t read that.
Pros: Super hydrating, good fit, nice scent, BLACK.
Final Verdict: I’m definitely going to stock up on these, and I recommend you do too, whether you have dry, oily, or normal skin. Find them on eBay for $2 USD a pop, not including shipping, or in packs on other various international e-commerce sites.
