I recently came across this tablet-mask thingy which is basically a dry and very compacted piece of cotton mask. Apparently, when soaked in a toner or a treatment in watery form, the pill will expand and become your very own homemade sheet mask! Cool, isn't it?
Read on for more details and the transformation pictures...
First, I placed the tablet into a little container. Then, I gradually pour in the Shu Uemura Deepsea Moisture Replenishing Lotion. Look at that thing expanding! You will need about 10ml of fluid to soak up the entire mask.
So, what's the big deal? Basically, now you have the freedom to make any sort of mask that you want! If you're looking for whitening, you can use whitening toners (eg. RMK Skintuner Fruit) or if you want anti-acne perhaps you can try a toner with salycilic acid (eg. Clinique Clarifying Lotion)? Heck, if you wanna make an SK-II Miracle Water mask, you can too. The possibilites are only limited by the type of toners that you can get your hands on.
You can find these tablet-masks in Daiso and SaSa. They're quite cheap -- RM9.90 for 15 pieces from SaSa, which is the one I'm using.
