My experience:

Missha Homemade Modeling Mask (Mung Bean) is the second mask from this range that I am happy to test out for you. I love using something new, especially when it is a good modeling mask. After last disappointments with the ETTANG brand I am back on my MISSHA fix. This MISSHA modeling mask comes in 2. parts: It has the active gel and a sachet that contains rice powder together with the other ingredients which make gel harden on your face.

The essence gel comes in a plastic capsule and contains 50 ml of the product which is a lot. It is enough to cover the entire face and what I found out later, was plenty to cover the neck area as well. I mixed the green powder into the gel and stirred it well to make it one uniform mass. Gel has a nice floral fragrance (unexpected but I guess bean scent would be repelling for some). Once the mixture is clump-free, I applied onto my face. This time with spatula.

The mixed goo is very runny in the beginning and tends to slide off the face. What I learned from last time is that it is better to use it all over the face, including over the mouth and neck areas. In that way it does the job at a larger scale and doesn’t drip off my face. After about 30 minutes it was the time to remove it as it was hardened in all the thick places.

Even though the mask is solidified it is still feeling moist to the touch. It is hard to describe but it felt like a silicone layer that was giving off moisture if I pushed in it with my fingers. This mask also came off in one piece. So far so good. My skin is left hydrated for an entire day. Same as with the rice mask, it evened out my skin complexion and soothed my red irritated skin (overused my AHA last night, don’t even ask). There was no tacky or sticky feeling left on my skin after I removed the mask. Overall it is a very fun product to try out with your friends. The down side for me is that it took a half an hour of my life but the end result is great. I managed to listen to a good book and relax instead of running around like a headless chicken. To me these still remain as something extra fancy for the skin on the days it needs resurrection. Still convinced it  fits all skin types  ?
