Review: TheFaceShop Raspberry Roots Sleeping Mask

Tuesday, 11 February 2014

Hello, beautiful people! How are you guys! It's been about a month since I last did a review. hehe I was on vacation and right after that I have to settle with my university registration week. Phew! Getting in line while fighting with first year students to register one subject ain't easy, I tell you.

Anyway, today I'd like to share with you guys about a sleeping mask that I've been using for about 4 months now. I really love it but I'll tell you guys why I won't be repurchasing it again.

As the title of this post, it's the Raspberry Roots Sleeping Mask from TheFaceShop. I got this during October last year and have been using it especially on those nights I'm lack of sleep and need quick fix the next day.


Drawing on the pure and natural strength of the Himalayas, extract of Himalayan Raspberry Root tones and lifts skin for refined facial contours.

Raspberry Roots Extracts 0.1%

First, let's get to its Product Description. From the box.

Skin problems? Try sleeping on it with this overnight beauty mask and wake up to porcelain smooth skin. 
Himalayan Raspberry Roots and Grain Extracts optimize elasticity and tighten pores while thoroughly hydrating and replenishing skin of lost nutrients.
Additions of plant extracts in the formulation promote the natural secretion of pleasure-inducing beta endorphins and stimulate the formation of collagen for more youthful skin.

Before going to bed, spread evenly over face avoiding the lips and eye areas.
Rinse thoroughly with warm water the following morning.

Net volume: 100ml 3.37 fl. oz

Packaging:



Like the picture above, the product is housed within the white bottle with the peach hues illustration which I don't even know whether that's raspberry or not. hehe


From what I heard, this product has been in the TheFaceShop line of products for a long time. About 5 or 6 years? Well, that's the BA told me where I got this product from. It even changed its packaging like once before. But I honestly don't like this kind of packaging as I can't see the amount of product left as it's an opaque bottle. 


The bottle comes with this pump. I never seen another product with a pump like this before. It works well and dispense appropriate amount of product every time.

Texture and consistency:


As I have oily-normal combo skin, I really love the gel-like texture of this product. it absorbs quickly and doesn't left me with stickiness or oily face in the morning. it hydrates my skin as well. 

As for the scent, it's a pleasant scent though it's actually fragrance. 

Final verdict:

As some of you may already know, as an architecture student, sleep is like a luxury to me. No kidding. So on those days where I have to spent all day and night at the studio, lack of sleep, then when I have to present in front of architects and lecturers the next day, this is something that I used to rejuvenate my skin. 

Just putting this mask on after cleansing my face properly, whether it's 8 hours or merely an hour of sleep, I'll wake up with a brighter and soft to touch skin. Give the nice and firm skin that I need before putting on my BB cream and simple makeup after that. Ah, I wonder if that's what it's like to have a porcelain skin. hehe

Not even once I break out after using it so I guess it's a huge plus. 

If you guys are looking for a quick fix, then I guess this is great. Though the effect won't last more than a day. but I believe it'll help to contour your skin with a prolonged use of the product. 

But unfortunately, like I have highlighted on the ingredients list, it contains parabens. Sigh. I didn't know while grabbing this at the store as during that time, I'm still new to this beauty products range. 

Score: 4/5. Though I won't be repurchasing this again. I guess I need to find replacement soon as the bottle is getting lighter. 

I bought this at the store with retailed price of RM99.90. I think I got 15% discount at that time. 

Anyway, I guess that's all for today's review. Do share if you guys ever tried this product and of you have a nice recommendation of sleeping masks that work the same as this, definitely tell me. 

Until next post, au revoir!
