We are always on the lookout for new beauty products that are not only great for our complexions but are innovative too. The Shiseido Waso Silky Smooth Mochi Mask ($15) ticks all our boxes.
It’s a DIY formula that allows you to freshly create a soft, mochi-textured mask that adheres effortlessly onto skin. It contains Japanese hydrolysed rice extract to boost radiance, as well as citrus unshiu peel extract to keep skin plump and hydrated.
But first, how to “make” it.
The cup comes with a pre-packaged powder agent, a liquid agent and a spatula. To “cook” the mask, pour the powder into the cup and add the liquid agent. Stir the mixture for about 30 seconds until it is well blended.
Once it forms a mochi-like texture, apply the mask onto clean, dry skin. The Shiseido Waso Silky Smooth Mochi Mask will give off a warm sensation for about 5 minutes. The heat is supposed to boost blood circulation and enhance the absorption of your follow-on skincare. Once the Shiseido Waso Silky Smooth Mochi Mask starts to cool and harden, you can peel it off.
This single use mask was more fuss-free than I expected it to be. The entire “cooking” process took less than a minute and didn’t create any mess at all.
After one use, the Shiseido Waso Silky Smooth Mochi Mask left my complexion feeling softer, smoother and refreshed, as if I had just gone for a spa. I also love how my skin looked brighter immediately after.
The effects are definitely worth the minimal effort. Plus, you can’t deny how cute the packaging is.
The Shiseido Waso Silky Smooth Mochi Mask is exclusively available at Sephora.
