Review Digest: Sister Diary 妹日記 Masks

I love Sister Diary 妹日記 masks, which are made in Taiwan and I guess they are easily found in drugstores out there, like Watsons.  But they are REALLY difficult to find here in the USA, so I was thrilled when Beautius started to carry them, when I asked about that brand.  I have reviewed the Natto Collagen mask in the past, but I will repeat it here.  I fell in love with this brand when MaskGenie put an Apple Polyphenol Platinum mask in one of the monthly pouches and I haven’t been the same since!  These reviews originally appeared on my Instagram account over the last several months.

Sister Diary is a hot face mask brand in Taiwan. It is a quality brand which has a focus on deep hydration treatment, using the finest and natural herbal extract in their products. 

Sister Diary 姊妹日記 Cherry Arbutin Mask  Sister Diary masks are VERY difficult to get here stateside and the only place that I have been able to find them has been at Beautius ~ I had specifically requested them and Tracey got them in stock! I hope she will continue to stock Sister Diary, as I find them to be a fantastic mask brand. I like them more than My Beauty Diary!! Sister Diary masks are thin, like MBD and are soaked with essence. This mask doesn’t have a scent (I was hoping for cherry!) and it is very cool and refreshing on my face. The mask fit is just a bit smaller than what I would like (me & my big face), but I love these masks so much, that I put up with the smaller fit. After 20 minutes, removed and my face feels very hydrated, smooth and refreshed. My face looks a little bit more brighter ~ due to the Lactobacillus Ferment ingredient ~  and I can really tell that this mask also helped with oil control as well.

Sister Diary Natto Collagen (Hydrating +Skin Firming ) Mask   I love their Apple Polyphenol Platinum mask, which brightens my face like no other mask has done. I purchased this one at Beautius, as they do carry several Sister Diary masks, which are very hard to get outside of Asian markets.  This mask is soaked in essence, really drenched, and has a slight scent to it, but it is disappears after applying to my face. The mask is thin, and has that plastic (pearl) paper to help you adhere it to your face. The fit is really good ~~ it covers everything nicely with no gaps. After 30 minutes (and the mask is still moist), I removed it and I am pleased to say that my face looked brighter, moisturized, but not oily. In fact, my face looks mattified, while smooth and firm to the touch. I really am impressed with Sister Diary masks and I remember thinking that they were a copy cat of My Beauty Diary, but I do feel that their masks are better than MBD. MBD has a great variety, but Sister Diary, for me, is superior. Two thumbs up!  This is one of the few collagen masks that I can use without feeling like a film of stuff is sitting on my face.

Sister Diary Mask Pearl Bird’s Nest Mask    Moral of tonight’s masking ~ you cannot put a wet gel mask on your neck and try to take a photo standing/sitting upright. The mask will slide down into your boobs. And the mask is kinda clammy. So tonight’s masking is with two really nice masks, despite my disgust face. I am wearing Sister Diary Pearl Birds Nest Mask (Taiwan) and ToGoSpa White Tea Neck mask (just got them tonight!!) After I took this picture, I went and laid down for 20 minutes. First up, ToGoSpa White Tea Neck mask ~ this is from my monthly ToGoSpa Society Box, which includes 6 eye gels monthly and a “Benefit” ~ which is a great product that they pick out (could be theirs or some other vendor). This month is a brand new mask ~ a neck mask ~ and it is made with the same gelly formula as their eye gels, which is really lovely and cooling on the skin, but slips and slides all over the place if you are not lying down. It is a nice moisturizing mask and my skin is not tacky or sticky when I remove it. 

Sister Diary Pearl Birds Nest Mask  This is another one of my rare Sister Diary masks, using pearl powder, peony and licorice to help brighten your skin tone and refine your skins complexion. It also has swiflet birds nest extract, which is basically the spit of swiftlets and it is rich in vitamins and proteins. It will also help brighten your skin tone as well as normalizing your skin’s cellular turnover and help assist in forming collagen. This mask is really wet ~ I mean soaked with essence and there was a lot of it in the bag too. I found that the eye area was a bit off with this mask, like the Cactus Loofa mask, I had to rip the corners of the eye area so I wouldn’t have mask poking me in the eyes! It has a slight floral scent, but nothing overpowering and it disappears soon. After 20 minutes, I removed the mask and my face does feel a lot smoother and refined. I didn’t notice a dramatic difference in brightening, but I did notice the smoothness and also my face felt very hydrating, without any excess residue. One of the reasons why I love Sister Diary is that my face is hydrated, but NOT DEWY. These are the perfect masks for me as a morning mask, as the essence just absorbs so quickly into my skin and gives my skin a more matte look ~ for oily skinned types, this is a feature, not a bug. Another two thumbs up for Sister Diary!

Sister Diary Cactus Loofah Mask   These aren’t a high end brand, but I really enjoy these masks a lot. Luffah extracts contain antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties to help soothe your skin. Opuntia ficus (cactus) is full of antioxidants, such as ascorbic acid, taurine and also flavonoids. Helps with purifying, soothing and calming the skin.

This mask is a traditional Taiwanese mask, thin and drenched with essence ~ the scent is very light and goes away ~ it is a bit bitter. The fit is fairly decent, my only complaint is around the eyes ~ I have to “tear” them a bit at the edges as I felt that the eye shape was not long enough, horizontally. This mask feels so hydrating and wonderful on my skin ~ I removed it 30 minutes later, and my moisture level was over 55%. My face felt smooth and refreshed and I have been fighting blemishes due to issues with my C-PAP device rubbing my skin the wrong way, so this helped out a lot to reduce redness and swelling. Two thumbs up!! I would LOVE it if MaskGenie would do a limited edition special pouch featuring Sister Diary!! I love these masks so much and they are very hard to get here.

Description: With the ingredients of Cactus and Luffa, the natural nutrition forms a protective layer on the skin, thus effectively reduce the loss of moisture in the skin. It helps to clarify, brighten, soothe and refine the skin, provides enhanced hydration to the skin for better elasticity.

Sister Diary Apple Polyphenol Platinum Mask (Hydrating + Brightening + Pores Tightening + Oil Controlling)     My facial expression doesn’t really reflect how much I LOVE this mask.  I look really upset here, don’t I?  This is one of my favorite masks ~ when I first received this in January 2015 in my  MaskGenie bag, I thought it was a “ripoff” of My Beauty Diary. I have come to learn a lot of Taiwan masks have the word Diary in them and they are all unique. I had reviewed My Beauty Diary Apple Polyphenol mask the other week and whereas that is a good mask, this one is 198% better, imho. Why? I am glad you asked😉 First up, lets talk about the ingredients ~ this mask contains a patented ingredient called ApplePhenon, which is just a high concentration of apple polyphenols, and have a strong antioxidant benefit and helps tighten your pores, regenerate, hydrate and lock in moisture to your skin.  Polyphenol are antioxidants and apples rank about 48th in the list of fruits and vegetables that contain polyphenols. This also has platinum, and supposedly, platinum helps remove dead skin cells, renews your skin, control excess oil, helps skin absorb other ingredients and improves skin clarity.

I don’t know about that, quite frankly. What I DO know is that any facial mask I have had that has platinum in it as greatly improved my skin tone and made it brighter and even. I mean ~ within the first try of this mask, I was totally shocked to see how much more brighter my skin tone had become. The mask is thin, but strong, and the essence formula was specifically created in Japan. It does not contain alcohol or parabens. I will say this mask does not smell like apples at all ~ it is a bit bitter smelling and medicinal, but the scent goes away quickly. I usually leave this mask on for about 35 minutes and then WOW! My face is brighter and my face feels matte, but not dry, hydrated and without any sticky residue. I guess Sister Diary masks are commonplace masks, found at drugstores in Asian markets like Watsons, but for those that live elsewhere, these masks are hard to find. I purchased more of these masks at Beautius and it looks like Tracey just restocked them after being sold out for a while!! 

Key ingredients: Spatlauber Apple (Rare species found in Europe) – effectively tightens pores, regenerates skin, hydrates skin and locks in skin moisture.  Platinum – helps renew dead skin cells, and effectively controls skin oil secretion. Tightens and brightens skin, and restore clarity and youth to skin. Natural hydrating factors also help skin absorb nutrients and keep skin nourished and moisturized. 

Ingredients: water, trimethylolpropane triethylapplephenonhexanoate/glycerin/cetearyl alcohol/ceteareth 20/glyceryl sterate/PEG 100 sterate/stereath 2/dimethicone/ceteth 24/choleth 24/phospholipid/propylene glycol/disodium EDTA, propylene glycol, hydroxyethyl urea, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) extract, cucumis sativus (cucumber) fruit extract, applephenon, 1,3 butylene glycol, glycerin, PEG-120 jojoba esters, aloe vera extract, avena sativa (oat) kernel extract, palmitoyl tripeptide-3, acetyl hexapeptide-3, xanthan gum, dipotassium glycyrrhizate, methlyisothiazolinone/iodopropyl butylcarbamate, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, sodium hyaluronate, perfume, platinum analysis

Sister Diary Diamond + Arbutin Mask Like all of the Sister Diary masks I have used so far, the sheet mask is light, thin and transparent, and drenched with essence. This one is made with camellia, arbutin, vitamin C, peony, beta-glucan and niacinamide ~ all designed to brighten and deeply hydrate your skin. It also has diamonds in it and I guess that helps with anti-aging and cellular regeneration. Never used anything with diamonds before (I think) in my skincare… This has a very light floral scent and disappears quickly ~ due to the thinness of the mask, I can leave it on for about 25 – 30 minutes before it completely dries out. I have to say that there is a running theme in Sister Diary masks ~ they are hydrating, but also mattifying. It is almost as if they are made just for oily skin! Or at least the ones I’ve used so far. I have had no complaints with Sister Diary masks so far ~ this one is hydrating without any tacky residue. Sister Diary masks are formulated in Japan and are alcohol and paraben free.

Description: CB-II Intensive Whitening Formula. Formulated with Arbutin, Vitamin C Derivatives, Peony Extracts and other herbal ingredients to inhibit production of melanin, soothe and repair damaged skin. Contains Diamond Mineral Extract to instantly revitalize dull and dry skin. Known for its anti-aging properties, diamonds help promote regeneration of cells and boost metabolic functions of skin.

Ingredients: Water, 1,3 Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Urea, Glycosyl Trehalose/Hydrogenated Starch Hyorolysate, Chondrus Crispus Extract, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol/Ethylhexylglyceri, Beta-Glucan, Saccharioe Isomerate, Soluble Collagen, Niacinamide, Arbutin, Citric Acid, Sodium Sulfite, Acetyl Tyrosine, Saxifraga Sarmentosa Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Aminopropyi Ascorbyl Phosphate, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Glutathione, Glycerin/Hydrolyzed Cottonseed Extract/Trehalose/Glucose/Fructose/Sucrose/Inositol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Camellia Sinensis Flower Extract, PPG-26-Buteth-26/PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Fragrance, Methylisothiazolinone, Iodopropyl Butylcarbamate, Diamond Powder analysis

Sister Diary Gold + Hyaluronic Acid Mask I did a side view and also waited for the mask to dry a bit so you can see that it starts to lose its translucency as it dries. The sides on this mask does not cover the sides of my cheeks as well as I would like them to, and you can see that there is a lot of gap around the nose. Yes, I am wearing eye gels too! This mask has gold in it, but there are no gold flecks in the mask, alas. The mask is very thin, and made from cotton imported from Okayama, Japan ~ it really holds a lot of essence too ~ this mask is very juicy wet. Gold + Hyaluronic acid mask is supposed to help firm and hydrate while making your skin supple. The 24K active gold is using nanotecholgy to help nutrients penetration deeper into your skin. Hyaluronic acid is amazing as it will instantly hydrate your skin, while strengthening your skin’s moisture barrier. This mask is scentless or at least I didn’t notice a scent. Removing mask after 40 minutes, I did notice that my skin felt very moisturized without being greasy. Unlike other Sister Diary masks, my face did not look “mattified” but it was dewy. This mask is quite the moisturizing mask and even after several hours, I can still feel a “film” on my face from it. I am not a fan of this mask for daytime use, but more of a mask for the evening.

Ingredients: Water, 1,3 Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Urea, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate/Propylene Glycol/PVM/MA Copolymer, Glycosyl Trehalose, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Xanthan Gum, Phenox Yethanol/Ethylhexylglycerin, Soluble Collagen, Glycerin/Hydrolyzed Cottonseed Extract Trehalose/Glucose/Fructose/Sucrose/Inositol, Aloe Barbadensis, Leontopodium Alpinum Extract Sodium Hyaluronate, PPG-26-Buteth-26/ PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Fragrance, Methylisothiazolinone, Iodopropyl Butylcarbamate, Alpinia Galanga Leaf Extract/ Xanthan Gum/Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hyalo-Oligo™ Sodium Hyaluronate, Gold Foil analysis

Sister Diary Black Pearl Q10 Mask  This mask contains CoQ10, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps assist in building collagen and elastin, so it will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.   Pearl contains calcium and has been used in ancient chinese medicine and skincare products for centuries, and will help help heal and brighten you skin, while providing anti-wrinkle protection.  Just like other Sister Diary masks, this is a thin cotton mask drenched in essence ~ it has a pearl paper (plastic) to help protect the mask and to enable ease of application of mask.  There is a scent to this mask ~ it smells like baby powder and it is annoying.   The essence is quickly absorbed into my skin when I remove the mask after 25 minutes, and my face does look brighter, but I can still smell the baby powder (uggh).   Sister Diary masks are made without alcohol or parabens, so they aren’t drying, but since glycerin is not one of their top ingredients, it may not be moisturizing enough for dry skin ~ however, for my oily skin, it is hydrating and soothing and does its job quite well.  Due to the scent of this mask, this is not one of my favorite masks by Sister Diary

Sister Diary Mucin Peptide Facial Sheet Mask  I have 3 Sister Diary masks left and I want to do a round up, so you can see the variety of masks they have. I have really enjoyed using Sister Diary masks, I think they are a fantastic inexpensive brand.  This one is their snail slime mask with a few anti-aging and antioxidant peptides tossed in ~ snail secretion filtrate is well known for its repairing properties and it works well on all skin types, I have found.  I love using snail masks for when I have redness, blemishes or just want to soothe my skin.  Snail slime has intense hydration and moisturizing effects and leaves your skin supple.  The multi-peptides will also help to hydrate and repair your skin, while brightening, reducing the appearance of pores and nourishing your skin.   This mask has a faint floral scent (why do snail masks smell like flowers all the time?) and once again, their is a lot of essence in this packet.  I am able to leave this thin sheet mask on for about 40 minutes, that is how much wet this mask is!   There is no tacky residue on my skin and this really reduced the swelling and redness from a blemish I have near my mouth (ahh, summer, breakouts are here!)   I love how Sister Diary masks do not make my face feel greasy or dewy ~ this mask left behind a satin finish.  

Ingredients: water, 1,3-butylene glycol, jojoba wax PEG-120 ester, chondrus crispus extract, xanthan gum, helichrysum italicum extract,  hydrolyzed silk, saccharide isomerate, phenoxyethanol, chlorphenesin, soluble collagen, palmitoyl tripeptide-3/glycerin, acetyl hexapeptide-8, dipotassium glycyrrhizinate, orchid extract, water/glycerin/hydrolyzed cottonseed extract/trehalose/glycose/fructose/sucrose/inositol,  aloe barbadensis, snail secretion filtrate, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, PPG-26-buteth-26/PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil/water,  sodium hyaluronate, fragrance, iodopropylnyl butylcarbamate analysis

Sister Diary Black Diamond Caviar Mask    This is a black charcoal mask made with diamond powder, seaweed peach and sweet almond extracts.  I am not sure why they have “caviar” in the name, because  I do not see any caviar in the ingredient list!  But there is DNA, which is scarryyyyyyy.   Anyway, this Sister Diary mask did not  come with a pearl/plastic paper, as the mask was thicker than their normal white sheet masks.  It was soaked in essence and I didn’t really smell any scent with it.  The fit is decent and it covered my face nicely (except around the nose area….need more nose coverage!) After 40 minutes, removed mask and the essence pretty much was absorbed into my skin, with no tacky residue or sticky dewiness.  In fact, like a lot of Sister Diary masks, this left my face feeling smooth, oil free and with a matte finish.  My pores looked fantastic (they looked marveloussss.. absolutely marvelous), my face looked brighter and I felt this was a good oil control mask. 

Description: Intensive Whitening:  Contains the extract of Black Diamond Caviar from Southern France , which is rich in protein, vitamins and minerals that could instantly pep up the skin and is well-known as a powerful anti-aging active ingredient. 

Ingredients: water, 1,3-butylene glycol, hydroxyethyl urea, propylene glycol, beta-glucan, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) seed extract, prunus persica (peach) fruit extract, xanthan gum, saccharide isomerate, phenoxyethanol,  chlorphenesin, hydrolyzed fucus vesiculosus protein, glycerin/DNA/carbomer, soluble collagen, water/glycerin/hydrolyzed cottonseed extract/trehalose/glucose/fructose/sucrose/inositol,aloe barbadensis, sodium hyaluronate, palmaria palmata extract, PPG-26-buteth-26/PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil/water, fragrance, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, hydrolyzed royal jelly protein, tourmaline, diamond powder analysis

Sister Diary Grape Seed Hyaluronic Mask This is the last of the variety of Sister Diary masks I own. This is made with Highland white grapes from Germany and have high levels of active enzymes that will brighten, repair and hydrate your skin. It also contains sodium hyaluronate, which pentetrates deeply into your skin, enhancing and locking moisture deep in your skin tissues. This also contains Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid called Hyalo-Oligo.  According to the manufacturer’s description  “This is a low molecular size hyaluronic acid (hyaluronic acid oligomer) which is produced by fermentation method with streptococcus zooepidemicus and has average molecular weight of less than 10,000. It is highly purified and has excellent stability. Its high water binding property will give skin proper moisture to prevent them from drying and its excellent tissue affinity and penetration capacity exercises lubricating effect. ” (source)

Learn something new everyday! This mask has a nice light scent to it, I am not sure what it is smells like, but it is pleasant. Once again, this mask is soaked with essence and I have enough to put on my neck and arms. After 40 minutes, removed mask and it took about a couple of minutes for the essence to sink in, but when it did, my face was brighter, cool to touch and very smooth to touch as well. My pores looked tighter and mattified. I don’t know why Sister Diary masks are so great for cutting down on oil ~ but they are. I swear there is something in their mixture that makes their masks an oily skinned person’s dream!! Moisturizing without sticky residue or dewiness and oil and pore control.  

Ingredients: water, vitis vinifera extract, sorbitol, 1,3 butylene glycol, sodium PCA, ginkgo biloba extract, propylgylcol,d-panthenol, xanthan gum, niacinamide, aloe vera extract, methylisothiazolinone/idopropyl butycarbamate, allantoin,dipotassium glycyrrhizinate, sodium hyaluronate, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, fragrance, sodium hyaluronate(hyalo-oligo) analysis

Final Thoughts

If you have oily skin, you should try out Sister Diary masks ~ for some reason, they just seem to work really well in creating a matte finish and getting rid of excess oil. I don’t know why, but so far, the majority of the masks I have tried by this brand have been that way (there was a couple of exceptions)  My favorites are .. just about all of them!!  I really love Apple Polyphenol Platinum (my absolute favorite!!), Cherry Arbutin, Natto Collagen, Grape Seed Hyaluronic,  Mucin Peptide, Diamond + Arbutin and Black Diamond Caviar ~ the one lone charcoal mask.  I also really enjoyed Cactus Loofah and Pearl Birds Nest, but I cannot find those anywhere for sale.   In fact, it is very difficult to find these masks outside of the Asian market ~ I have only found one store that sells them online that ships internationally and that is Beautius. They sell a lot of the masks that I reviewed here and have been my supplier for several months ~ I asked Tracey at Beautius to stock Sister Diary and she did ~ and for that I am forever grateful! 

I totally recommend Beautius ~ this e-tailer operates out of Hong Kong and they sell not only K-Beauty, but Taiwanese, Japanese and Chinese skincare items, lots of fun masks and a great prices too.  Shipping is pretty inexpensive as well and I have always received my packages quickly ~ within a couple of weeks   Beautius also gives a lot of freebies and samples as well ~ it is like opening up a present sometimes!! 

If you haven’t purchased from Beautibus before, I would love it if you used my referral code You will earn 100 “Beans” which is $1.00 to use at their shop ~ also for every purchase you make at Beautius, they will give you more “Beans”! Easy cash!

One thought on “Review Digest: Sister Diary 妹日記 Masks

  1. I didn’t try this brand yet and to be honest I didn’t even hear about them, so I’m glad you are introducing them. And if you say you prefer them over MBD I’ll have to note this down on my wishlist😄
