One late Friday night after work I stumbled upon the 365 Daily Sheet Masks at Watsons. Though there was a multitude of different sheet masks dominating the entire shelf, what caught my eye was definitely the 365 Daily Masks simply because of the price tag: 2 sheet masks for SGD1.95. That is less than a dollar per sheet mask! Plus, the “Limited Period Only” at the bottom of the price tag pushed me to quickly grab one of each variety and head for the counter.
Getting down to the Details:
- Made in Taiwan
- Price on offer: 2 for SGD1.95
- Location: Watsons Singapore
- Green color packaging: Green Caviar (Elastic Mask)
- Purple color packaging: Water Lily (Hydrating Mask)
I found out over the Internet that there are other varieties of the 365 Daily Mask, such as the pink packaging for Cherry Blossom (with Whitening effects) and yellow packaging for Royal Jelly (Nourishing Mask). However, this particular Watsons store carried only the green and purple ones.

Me time with the Green Caviar Elastic Sheet Mask:
Out of the two 365 Daily Mask purchases, I was obviously more curious about the Green Caviar sheet mask, picturing the luxurious and exotic delicacy of caviar in my mind.
Therefore this was the first one I tried on Saturday afternoon, after a good cleansing and exfoliation of my face. I left both the sheet masks overnight in the fridge so by the time I took it out the next day and placed it on my face, I had this relaxing cooling sensation on my face to compliment the warm sunny afternoon in Singapore.
As I laid on the sofa while my skin absorbed all the goodness of the essence, a quick Google search revealed that the green caviar is a type of seaweed, with green beads growing on its steam (hence the name green caviar). Google images resembled something similar to the cartoony green grape-like picture on the sheet mask package. Amongst the many accolades for this superfood, one of them is that it claims to improve skin elasticity as it is a good source of healthy fats, collagen and antioxidants.
My take on the Green Caviar Elastic Sheet Mask:
The mask fits my face pretty well. After 30 minutes of relaxation, I gently peeled it off and noticed the immediate intense radiance and hydration boost it gave my skin. I massaged the leftover essence onto my skin for a few minutes before pausing and enjoying the effects on the mirror. I was really impressed by the end result!
Water Lily Hydrating Sheet Mask
Product Description at the back of packaging:
Feel the surge of moisture everyday with Water Lily Hydrating Mask.
Water Lily Extract: Its powerful nourishing properties instantly nurture and moisturize your skin. It helps enhance skin’s hydration and luminosity to let your skin bloom and shine.
Saccharide Isomerate: A remarkable water-binding ingredient that retains and intensifies hydration. Lock-in moisture, its long-lasting effects help maintain the perfect skin balance to boost radiance.

Usage: Use after facial cleaning. Place the mask sheet on your face. Smooth out mask to ensure perfect fir. Leave on for 20-30mnutes before removal. Gently massage the remaining essence into skin until fully absorbed.
Me time with the Water Lily Hydrating Sheet Mask:
After my usual pre-sheet mask ritual of cleansing and exfoliation, I was all set to try out the Water Lily sheet mask. As I let the cool sheet mask and essence do its magic on my skin, I decided to read up on the benefits of water lily for skin. Turns out, water lily is used as a natural moisturizer in the manufacture of skin care products due to its moisturizing properties.
My take on the Water Lily Hydrating Sheet Mask:
Similar to the Green caviar mask, this one was also a decent fit for my face. I removed the mask after 30 minutes and was expecting similar results to the Green Caviar mask. Though the Water Lily mask did a good job of leaving my skin hydrated, I was not as awed by its effects as I was after I peeled off the Green Caviar mask.
First of all, these sheet masks are affordable, and there was an abundance of the essence for my skin to soak in.
For those of you suffering from dry dull skin, I would highly recommend for you to try out the Green Caviar sheet mask. However, if you are on the oilier side of the skin spectrum, and would like to give your skin a gentle boost of moisture, my recommendation would be the Water Lily sheet mask.
In conclusion, for my personal use, due to its affordability and end result, the Green Caviar Daily Mask is the one worth re-purchasing!
