My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask Review:
MY SCHEMING should be a familiar name for any mask sheet fans, although it’s originated from Taiwan not South Korea. However, don’t underestimate Taiwan sheet masks since they have their own superiorities compared to Korean sheet masks. I personally haven’t tried a lot of Taiwan sheet masks brand, especially because they aren’t very popular in my country so that finding a local seller is very very difficult. Nevertheless, I frequently heard that MY SCHEMING is one of the popular brands beside My Beauty Diary, Dr. Morita, LOVEMORE, etc.
I finally had the opportunity to buy MY SCHEMING sheet masks during my holiday trip to Taiwan two weeks ago. And, my goodness, Taiwanese is just like Korean when it’s related to sheet masks; there are so many brands with various ranges and variants plus different discounts and promotions too! Fortunately I found a store that sells MY SCHEMING masks, allows me to buy three different variants which one of them is MY SCHEMING L-Ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask.

My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask Review:
MY SCHEMING L-Ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask comes in a tosca blue packaging with a funny girl and a dog characters printed on its cover. Also, Taiwan sheet masks have smaller dimensions compared to Korean masks, makes them more handy to pack.
You can find the product’s name, ingredients, volume, directions to use, all printed in both Chinese and English, make them easier to understand.
Once it’s opened, you can see that the essence’s amount is medium; still have some of it left on the packaging after using the sheet masks. The essence itself is transparent, floral scented, with quite runny consistency.
Taiwan sheet masks usually have a plastic cover (or the pearl paper, it said) to ease the unfolding process and I think it really helps. This mask have medium size, the holes fit quite well with my face. It is made of thin material, which I like because the sheet mask could attached perfectly to my face and yeah, I could feel it when the essence diffuses to your skin.
I used this sheet mask during my Taiwan trip, when the weather was hot, sunny, and humid since it was summer. I was lack of sleep too, because I always came back to the hotel late at night after exploring the city. That time, my face was dull and a little bit dry, and this mask just came at the right time to save my skin.
MY SCHEMING L-Ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask isn’t like woaahh – it’s only decent especially when I focus on its brightening claim. However, I could say that my face was moisturized enough and finally felt like before. I also don’t really believe any brightening claims which come from a sheet mask, since brightening is not an instant process. I woke up with a healthy face the next morning, and it was nice enough for me.
I’d like to recommend this mask for anyone! It has nice smell, perfect size, thin material which are my basic requirements for sheet masks. But don’t buy this hoping you will get an instant brightening effect in the morning.
The moisturizing effect is also nice and perfect for my oily combination skin, but a dry skin-bearer might think that it’s not enough.
However, some people should be aware of cosdna analysis of this mask. It shows some unsafe ingredients with safety point number 3, which most of them are solvent, surfacant, or viscosity control. But there are also two preservative ingredients with the safety points 4 – 6, so for you who are concerned with this safety scoring system by cosdna, just be careful.
Overall, I’m OK with My Scheming L-Ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask due to its size, material, and moisturizing effect. However, this benefits could be found in many other sheet masks, so I don’t think I’ll buy this sheet mask again.
I’d like to try other variants of My Scheming masks which I bought together with this one. Let’s see if it has better effect than this mask!
