My Beauty Diary Moisturising Wishing Box

These Wishing Boxes from My Beauty Diary were unveiled at the pharmacies this time last year. Waiting till now to snap one up made me save 50% off the retail price! There are three boxes to choose from: lifting, moisturising and whitening, and believe me, it was not easy to make a decision.


Name: My Beauty Diary 我的美麗日記 Moisturising Wishing Box 滋润保湿许愿礼盒
Price: RM 119.90 for the following
Aloe 芦荟 (23 ml ×7)
Bird's Nest 燕窝 (23 ml ×6)
Hyaluronic Acid 玻尿酸 (23 ml ×7)
Natto 纳豆 (23 ml ×6)
Lemon & Verbena Body Lotion 送柠檬 & 马鞭草身体乳 (100 ml ×1)
Made in: Taiwan

Bird's Nest

Price: ★★★★★★★ RM 3.46/sachet
Scent: ★★★★★☆☆ brings up fond memories of me rotting my teeth by eating too much chewy candies. Would anyone care for some Sugus?
Moisturising level: ★★★★★☆☆ +16.4%
Whitening degree: ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ zero brightening
Recommend: No. This mask does not make the cut if you want your mask to nourish as well as brighten.

The full ingredient list for Bird's Nest:

Hyaluronic Acid

Price: ★★★★★★★ RM 3.46/sachet
Scent: ★★★★★☆☆ almost scent-less! I can not decide whether this is a good or bad thing.
Moisturising level: ★★★★★★☆ +24.8%
Whitening degree: ★☆☆☆☆☆☆ minimal
Recommend: Yes. When I used this, I feel that it makes my skin look plump. Thumbs up!

The full ingredient list for Hyaluronic Acid:


Price: ★★★★★★★ RM 3.46/sachet
Scent: ★★★★★☆☆ surprisingly pleasant. It does not bear any traces to its namesake, the pungent and foul fermented soybean.
Moisturising level: ★★★★★★☆ +22.3%
Whitening degree: ★★☆☆☆☆☆
Recommend: Yes! It is the best at brightening amongst the three masks reviewed here and it really hydrates the skin.

The full ingredient list for Natto:

My verdict:
#1 Natto
#2 Hyaluronic Acid
#3 Bird's Nest

You can read my old review on Aloe over here. Lemon & Verbena Body Lotion will get its own entry!

Over to you! Have you taken a liking to any masks recently?

Love MBD masks, at some point I have the use up the small stack currently sitting in my dorm fridge lol. So interesting to hear about the Natto masks, I avoided those because I was worried they would smell like natto which is not my favorite thing in the world LOL. Will definitely check them out next time I'm in Taiwan.
