Good Monday you all, hope you guys had a kick-ass weekend!
So today, I will be talking about the trending “vampire mask” that has seen many Korean beauty brands developing and releasing their take and version of it.
The “vampire mask” that I have tried and will be talking about is the W.Lab Tone Line Change Pack which was kindly sent over to me for reviewing purpose by Q-Depot 2 weeks ago.
Read on to find out all about my experience with this mask!

|Try-out period||:||2 weeks; once a week|
|Personal take||:||I was actually excited to finally trying the so-called Vampire pack which has been trending on the Korean social media platforms a while back. But as the mask was drying up on my face, the “pulling” effect as the mask transits from moist to dry was a little….uncomfortable (read: painful).
My sensitive skin was a little…red after rinsing it away and on the second day, my BB cushion did not sat nicely on my skin and it appeared patchy.
Well, I considered using it just like a normal 9 mins wash-off mask (just before it dries completely) but then again, it would defeat the whole purpose of it being a “vampire mask”. Right?
|Will i recommend it?||:||No, despite the obvious after effect, it feels just a little painful when the mask is drying – when it’s transiting from wet to dry and the mask is “pulling” the skin|
