Product tested by Yashoda.

Name of Product :

Real Nature Mung Bean Face Mask by The Face Shop. 20g/0.70oz. Made in Korea.

From their website :

The pore-tightening sheet mask with mung bean extract temporarily tightens pores to create a smoother complexion.

• Natural Grinding Extraction Process

Natural grinding extraction is a process where natural plants are ground and blended with a moisturizing water-based ingredient to create a natural extract.

• Natural Adhesive Mask

The natural adhesive mask formulated with tree extracts clings tightly to skin to infuse it with essence.

Unique Ingredient:

Phaseolus Radiatus (Mung Bean) Extract : did you know that raw mung beans are extremely high in protein with 23.86g per 100g of beans! Although many cultures in Asia cook/boil the beans which brings down the protein content to 3.04g per 100g of beans.


Pros :

  • Attractive, easy to open packaging
  • Good instructions in 3 languages
  • One size mask
  • No irritation or tingling

Cons :

  • Poor adherence of mask
  • Smelled like alcohol
  • Mask was drying out after 35 mins of wear
  • Not impressive results

My Review :

2/5 stars – I would definitely not repurchase.

Packaging : The design is attractive with a vibrant green mung beans on the front. The packaging includes instructions in English, French and Korean. It is easy to tear open.

Product : One size sheet mask with decent fit but very poor adherence around the jaw and chin. It kept bunching up and did not sit flat on the skin – likely due to the thickness of the pulp sheet. Smells like alcohol which remained a faint smell while it was applied. Mask was decently saturated with a clear watery fluid. No irritation or tingling.

I kept it on for about 35 minutes and found it was drying out at this stage.

After removal : It is meant to tighten pores leaving skin clean and smooth which I did not see any noticeable change. I found that it only evened my skin tone.

Where I purchased it? Cost?

I purchased this at The Face Shop warehouse sale in Canada. It retails for $3 CAD online.
