My Beauty Diary Review: Strawberry Yogurt Amino Acid Cleanser, Vanilla Soufflé Face Scrub, Chocolate Truffle Sheet Mask

I was running low on both cleanser and exfoliator and by chance recalled that I have an unopened box of My Beauty Diary Sweet Teatime Mini Set (甜蜜午茶迷你組) in my drawer.

Strawberry Yogurt Amino Acid Cleanser

Name: My Beauty Diary 我的美麗日記 Strawberry Yogurt Amino Acid Cleanser 草莓優格潔顏乳
Price: NT$ 109 for 90 ml
Made in: Taiwan

The cleanser is ensconced in a tub with a twist cap. Not the most hygienic packaging, which is why My Beauty Diary enclosed a little spatula in the full sized version.

It foams nicely and has little exfoliating bits that does nothing for me. It cleanses well but it does not leave my face soft and plump like my HG cleanser.

Vanilla Soufflé Face Scrub

Name: My Beauty Diary 我的美麗日記 Vanilla Soufflé Face Scrub 香草去角質舒芙蕾
Price: NT$ 269 for 120 ml
Made in: Taiwan

Vanilla Soufflé Face Scrub changed my perspective on peeling gels. It is amazing!

It is basically an exfoliator with a peeling effect in mousse form. After some gentle massaging on a dry clean face, the mousse forms eraser-like shavings.

My skin has never felt so smooth or bright. I am in awe and rightly so!

I immediately went out and got the full sized can. SaSa had a 46% discount for it but it is still considerably more expensive than retail in Taiwan. I can't for the life of me, understand why My Beauty Diary is so expensive in Malaysia.

Chocolate Truffle Sheet Mask

Name: My Beauty Diary 我的美麗日記 Chocolate Truffle Sheet Mask 松露巧克力面膜
Price: NT$ 219 for 1 box (23 ml ×10)
Made in: Taiwan

Price: ★★★★★★★ RM 2.28/sachet
Scent: ★★★★★☆☆ chocolate ice cream
Moisturising level: ★★★★★☆☆ +18.7%
Whitening degree: ★★☆☆☆☆☆
Recommend: Yes. It helped to moisturise my face and the scent is just out of this world yummy. I would suggest to those watching their weights to stay away; you would immediately crave for ice cream and that just beats the whole point of eating healthy. It absorbs a little slower than the Earl Grey Tea & Macaron variation, which is my favourite My Beauty Diary mask, but the essence does sink in eventually.

Great review as always! I wasn't impressed with the chocolate mask but I do like the Earl Grey Tea ones in the same line!

Im assuming the Vanilla Soufflé Face Scrub is similar to the Japanese Cure Aqua gel? :D I may give it a try! ^^ Hmmm, I have yet to try the early grey mask but the chocolate one does smell delicious!!

ooh the face scrub looks interesting! it reminds me of cure natural aqua gel--have you tried cure before?

The face scrub worked surprisingly well for me before my pre-freak out sensitive skin era. Gosh I miss using My Beauty Diary masks and all...they always smell so good and feel therapeutic on the skin. I just stick with a weekly clay mask and that's it.
