[Review] My Scheming Mandelic Acid Brightening Mask

My Scheming Mandelic Acid Brightening Mask Sheet Review:

Today’s review is on My Scheming Mandelic Acid Brightening Mask. Mandelic acid is a type of gentler Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) derived from almonds that can aid in skin repair. It is often used for combating hyper pigmentation and uneven tone especially those recovering from acne scars. My Scheming is a solid choice for sheet masks since these can effectively brighten, soothe inflamed skin and address a lot of other skin troubles.


Apart from repairing skin tone and fading blemishes, mandelic acid is effective in balancing oil secretion, making this an ideal sheet mask for oily/combination types.

This sheet mask can also provide a deep cleanse and also maintain healthy pores. As with all My Scheming masks, this one also provides a visible glow that comes with the mandelic acid working on skin’s pores.

My Scheming Mandelic Acid Brightening Mask Sheet Review:

I was experiencing some minor redness and breakouts on my cheek so I decided to use My Scheming Mandelic Acid Brightening Mask. I am currently not using any chemical exfoliants such as AHAs so this will be a great product for a newbie like me in AHAs since mandelic acid is the gentlest kind of acid.

The essence was so light and refreshing, I am instantly reminded of My Scheming’s Skin Pores Clarifying mask (reviewed). Unfortunately, there was no essence left inside the pouch, this ultra thin silk mask absorbed all this watery essence.

If you have oily or combination skin, this watery essence can feel instantly cooling and healing as well. There’s no discernible smell I can detect.

My Scheming Mandelic Acid Brightening Mask Review

The material of the mask is not the standard cotton hybrid that My Scheming uses but the one I have used is a silk version, which meant a delicate sheet mask. Be careful to unfold to prevent tearing. I also noted that the essence dissipated quickly due to its thin silky material, drying out the mask is less than 20 minutes.

After removing My Scheming Mandelic Acid Brightening Mask, I really did felt my skin was healed and refreshed. Any redness or irritation was almost gone and my skin tone was really even. There was a slight brightening effect but I have better illuminating results from other My Scheming masks.

Overall it was a relaxing, soothing experience and this sheet mask helped a lot with my irritation and blemishes that can potentially develop into real cystic acne. This mask helped in calming down my skin and prevented these pimples from appearing. Seriously, if you have an important event and you feel some bumps developing, this is a good and effective anti-acne sheet mask.
