THE FIT: So this is not the best fitting mask. Although they say it is designed to fit any face, I did not find that to be the case. The ‘design’ feature I think they are referring to is the many slits around the edges (which is a huge plus). This is something different from the typical Asian sheet mask which I usually have to make slits in order for them to fit properly. I am not sure is the largeness of the mask is due to the idea that the bone structure of Westerners is larger than that of Asians. The lifting edges will make it difficult to sit upright so it is best to lay down or sit in a reclined position. Even then due to the thickness of the mask it does not lay flush to the skin.

MY THOUGHTS: Despite my comments on the fit of the masque/mask, I actually think it is working. I have only used a couple of the masks to date because after use I noticed a bit of dryness and peeling. The exfoliating effects of NeoGlucosamine® at work? But I have noticed that my skin looks a bit lighter. I am not using any other whitening/lightening/brightening masks or products so I am quite sure that the difference I see is due to this product. I can only use this once every two weeks (I use soothing and hydrating masks in between) because of the dryness but I am willing to use all the mask in order to see the difference. I will try to post a 12 week update.
Another thing that I noticed is that right out of the packet the masque appears and feels dry. In the Asian mask world this would be frowned upon. However, it is moist to the touch which I find strange and even will the ill fit, after the 10 minutes one does observe the solution [essence] remaining to be massaged into the skin.  The masque also has a light blue color which I thought would transfer to the skin but it did not and as it dried (well to me) the fabric turns white.At first when the description said lift-off masque I thought it was one of those new rubber or modeling clay masks that you would actually have to lift off. But alas this is a sheet mask. 
The masque (6 masques at 0.60 fl oz per masque packette) retails for $65 on Exuviance. A fair price for a well formulated product that works. 

Made in the USA.
