[REVIEW] Let Her Make-Over White Jade Aid Magic Cleansing Mask & Magic Glutathione Mask

When I ordered my first box, which is their Holiday Launch Box, from hellodaint.com, I was really excited because all the items in the box were products that I have never tried before. It was through this box that I learned about the brand Let Her Make-Over and their White Jade Aid sheet masks. The box came with both of the White Jade Aid masks – The Magic Cleansing Mask and The Magic Glutathione Mask. Daint also provides a how-to on their boxes, and with these masks a demo video was linked along with the application method. These masks are meant to be used one after another (a step 1, step 2 kind of thing) – but to be fair, they’re masks so you can generally use them whenever you see fit. I used them on two separate occasions.

This may be a long post, but I’ll try to be as concise as possible so please bear with me! I will review the Magic Cleansing Mask first, then the Magic Glutathione Mask. If you’re only interested in one of them, I’ve made sure to split them up so you don’t need to read through the entire thing :)! You can find the info on price, pros/cons, and whether or not I’ll repurchase first and if you want the more in-depth goodies, they’ll be down below.

Price

Magic Cleansing Mask

$16.99 for 5 masks on EBay (Does not ship to Canada – I couldn’t find any other reliable site that sold this besides Amazon, but that one is pretty expensive)

Magic Glutathione Mask

$3.50 each on Facetory

If you’re interested in trying these out, here is a list of store locations listed on their site.

Quickie

Magic Cleansing Mask

The Good

  • Interesting, different concept
  • Deep cleansing with a mask – great for people who don’t like to use cleansers

The Bad

  • Gimmicky
  • Messy
  • Time consuming (40-50 minutes)
  • A little similar to a clay mask, but it’s on a sheet mask instead
  • A peel-off mask – so if you’re not a fan of those – stay clear of this mask (see ‘effectiveness’ for why I am definitely not going to repurchase this)

Magic Glutathione Mask

The Good

  • Hydrating, moisturises
  • Brightens skin
  • Soothing and cooling effect
  • Finish is not too sticky

The Bad

  • Price does not justify the effects
  • Can get cheaper masks that can do the same or even better

Will I buy this again

No. It doesn’t feel like it’s worth the price. The Cleansing Mask is interesting, but feels gimmicky. There isn’t anything too special with the Glutathione Mask – the effects are easily replaceable with other masks in the market.

Packaging

The packaging of the masks are like the typical sheet masks that you see in the market. The one thing that stands out about these masks is the cute design. It’s got a giraffe in the middle and this card type theme going on. I think they designed it so that you could also tell that the masks are part of the same set.

A while back, Kevin from Skincarisma reached out and I figured I could include both sites analysis here because it Skincarism provides more infographics/images on their site.

Ingredients that might irritate/cause acne: Butylene Glycol, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine

Texture

The texture of the sheet mask was interesting – it reminded me of cheese cloth. It has little holes in it which I think is meant for the clay aspect of the mask. It dries up stiff, but you are able to rip it apart if you put a little more force into it. It feels a little coarse when it’s dry. The clay side of the mask when you first apply it is pretty sticky.

The mask when you first take it out of the packaging looks like it’s a thin layer of clay on a sheet mask. You’ll know what I mean from the pictures below.

Application

Before I get started on how I applied the mask, here is an image on the fit/shape of the mask in hopes to give you a better idea of how it may fit your own face if you were to try this.

My take on this mask was that it’s supposed to either be the first  or second step of your routine. Since the packaging recommended to wash the face first, I only used water because I was testing this out in the morning.

The mask comes in two pieces. Each piece is surrounded by a clear/transparent plastic cover and a white plastic cover. Being a good child, I followed the instructions and removed the transparent cover first. These steps can get a little messy since the mask is sort of clay-ish and can get everywhere if you’re not careful. I wasn’t a huge fan of it getting everywhere..

I started with the bottom half first, because it just happened to be on top of the top half. I don’t think it matters which half you decide to put on your face first. I put on the mask with the white cover sheet. With caution (lol), I slowly peeled the mask away from the cover sheet. It adheres to things quite well, which can get frustrating if the mask ends up sticking to itself.. I loved how well it adheres and sticks and doesn’t move around. But of course, it should since it is supposed to be like a deep cleansing ‘clay’ sort of thing. There was a nice cooling effect when I applied it on my skin.

After I put on the other half, I tried to smooth out the mask as much as I could, but with some difficulty because it just stuck so well on my skin. I went about my way for 50 minutes (I waited until it was dry). Here’s where the ‘peel-off’ aspect of this mask comes in. By 50 minutes, the mask would be pretty dry. I have never tried those peel-off masks because they look absolutely painful.. and my pain tolerance is not that high. I peel this off slowly, and it didn’t hurt at all as I was peeling it off. It wasn’t completely dry, but it was dry enough to act similar enough to a peel off.

There was some residue left over after I peeled the mask off (which was expected). It’ll look something like what you see on my hand! I washed it off with warm water, and patted my face dry.

Effectiveness

Okay, before I go on about the results of this mask, let us take a moment of silence for my eyebrow hairs that got ripped out from the mask… This made me dislike the mask quite a bit. I know peel-offs come with this risk but I wasn’t aware that it would rip out quite a few. The hairs that you see in the image are the remnants that I didn’t bother getting out. Ok. I know I’m being dramatic. But I love my eyebrows :(

Sorry if the image looks a little low in quality, I used my phone to take these because it was easier to get it consistent compared to my camera (in terms of lighting, angle, etc.). Hokay, so I noticed that my skin definitely whitened, and is less yellow compared to before. I had to double check this with several people (I showed them before and after and ask them what they thought the difference was). The things I do for this blog.. But it basically just looks how my face would look if I cleansed it with the SHU UEMURA blanc:chroma gentle cleansing oil.

As for my pores, my nose was slightly cleaner compared to before. I didn’t see any little blackheads/whiteheads poking out of the mask when I peeled it off. But I’d say it did clear my skin of yellow pollutants. Not too sure about unclogging my skin waste, although I do think it did work since my nose doesn’t look like it has as much dirt and residue in those little pores.

Packaging

(Same as above, but I’ll paste it here too). The packaging of the masks are like the typical sheet masks that you see in the market. The one thing that stands out about these masks is the cute design. It’s got a giraffe in the middle and this card type theme going on. I think they designed it so that you could also tell that the masks are part of the same set.

Texture

The texture of the sheet mask is the typical cotton material that is common to many sheet masks in the market. This mask is also a bit thinner if I am comparing it to the LEADERS INSOLUTION masks.

Here is how the shape of the mask looks – It’s similar to the Magic Cleansing Mask, except the Eyes and Mouth holes are wider. The shape of the nose is the same.

Application

The instructions on how to use this mask is pretty straightforward. I used this as my ‘essence’ and followed with a sunscreen afterwards. I also used this mask during the day.

The mask is soaked with essence, I’m a little sad that some of it dripped into my sink :( but it’s okay! Because it still had quite a lot on it anyways. Unlike the Magic Cleansing Mask, there wasn’t any plastic film on this one to keep the mask in shape. Probably because it doesn’t need it – but I personally like masks that come withe a wrapper just because.. it feels more sanitary?!

Here is how it fit on my face! It was a little small around the sides of my face, it didn’t reach all the way – there was a bit of skin left out of this essence-y goodness. I felt that the nose area could’ve also been a little smaller. The fit was okay, I could work around it, but it’s not great. This didn’t adhere as well as the Magic Cleansing Mask. The bottom part of the mask that you see, get coming off which was a little frustrating for me.

I was able to leave this mask on for 30 minutes, before it started to dry up. Since it wasn’t completely dry I put the mask on my neck for a few minutes to not waste it.

Effectiveness

The mask had a cooling and soothing effect. The finish wasn’t too sticky, and is light enough to get on with your day. I applied sunscreen on this afterwards and went on with my day. It did moisturize and hydrate my skin. It also gave it a bit of a glow (as you can see from my forehead), my skin looked slightly less dull.

With all that being said though, a lot and I mean A LOT of masks can render similar results. I like that it has Glutathione and Niacinamide for it’s ingredients, but it’s not like this mask was amazing. The results were okay, and there are cheaper options that can do the same thing.


In Summary

Frankly, while these masks to perform what they promise to do I don’t think there is anything particularly special about it. However, if you enjoy peel off masks, but you don’t have a high pain tolerance like me you could give the Magic Cleansing Mask a try if you don’t mind losing a few eyebrow hairs in the process. The Magic Glutathione Mask is alright, you could give a try because of it’s ingredients list; however, it wouldn’t be a staple or a repurchase for me. It’s one of those masks where I use it and my initial reaction is simply ‘oh’. They’re also quite pricey, slightly higher than $3CAD per sheet. And trust me, you can definitely find masks that are under $3 that do just as well of a job as the Magic Glutathione Mask (even though it might not contain Glutathione). Sorry for the long post, but I really thought these belonged together in one review (since they’re kind of like a set!)

Thanks for reading!

  1. Wow what an awesome review. Thanks for putting so much time and effort in putting it together. I know long posts take a.moment to come together. I have seen this brand’s masks floating around IG and was actually curious about them. And even though I can clearly see they gave you some results, they aren’t as drastic as I expected cleaning masks to be, if you know what I mean. Sure it’s nice to just apply a sheet to your face and wait for the magic, but I guess I’m going to stick with my clay masks grom the tube. Next one on the list is my french Pink Clay from Lovea Nature. What’s your fav clay mask?
    Xo

    • Thank for for taking the time to read it and leave a comment! Oh yes, I saw them float around as well. :) Yea, I thought I would be wowed or amazed but it was a oh.. so this is what it’s like. Usually clay masks dry out my skin a little too much :( but the one I’m looking forward to try next is the Jeju one from Innisfree! Have you tried that before?

      • Hey Ju, no in fact I haven’t had the chance to try the jeju from innisfree yet, even though I clearly have seen in around. Trying to going through my current stash and as my parents brought me some clay masks from Lovea from their vacay in France, I’m good for the next frw months. 😄🌼

      • :P !! I see I hope it works out well for your skin! haha trying to get through my stash as well, but for some reason it just keeps growing bigger and bigger!
