Minon Amino Moist Whitening Milk Mask Review

This new mask is MINON Amino Moist’s latest innovation to help those with sensitive skin achieve brighter, fairer and smoother skin. It is targeted at people with dull or uneven skin tone, and face pigmentation problems such as freckles and dark spots.

It is soaked in a thick, milky serum that keeps skin soft, smooth, and moisturised. Besides moisturising your skin, the Whitening Milk Mask goes a step further to help reduce spots and freckles by reducing the formation of melanin. It contains a combination of anti-inflammatory and whitening ingredients that reduces the formation of rough skin and spots.

MINON Amino Moist's Whitening Milk Mask and Moist Essential Mask


Reviewers of both types of masks agree that these masks from the MINON Amino Moist range are definitely safe and suitable for people with sensitive skin to use. None of the reviewers have suffered from allergic reactions, despite many having sensitive skin that is prone to redness and irritation.

All of them also pointed out that the masks adhere very well to their face without worrying about the serum dripping from the masks. This even allows some of them to do their work while using the masks! An overwhelming majority were also impressed that there is so much serum in the masks.

The Whitening Milk Mask has a serum that is thick and milky in texture, but it is lightweight enough to be absorbed easily by skin, even for the reviewers who have oily skin and clogged pores. Many reviewers report seeing brighter, smoother, and more supple skin after usage.

For those who tried the Moist Essential Mask, it is commonly reported that they not only see more hydrated skin immediately after using the mask, but also a healthy glow that lasts. Some commented that the mask is more moisturising than other masks they have used before, so it is perfect for people with dry skin.

Concerned with dull skin, pigmentation, and enlarged pores

The Whitening Milk Mask is moisturising enough without feeling sticky at all, which I love. I also saw that my dull complexion became brighter after using the mask. I also have to say that the serum is very generous, so much so that I had excess to use on my neck area as well. It’s a gentle mask that I can use every night to relax my skin just before bedtime, and I get to wake up to brighter, supple-looking skin in the morning.

Concerned with dull skin, acne, and oily T-zone

I have acne and an oily T-zone, so I am impressed that this thick serum felt nice and hydrating instead of being too heavy for my pores. It is a very soothing mask, and it is something I will use again. I think my sister who has dry and sensitive skin will like this mask as well.

Rachel Leong
Concerned with dull skin, dry spots around nose and chin

There are many things I love about the Whitening Milk Mask. For starters, there is a generous amount of serum in the packet so I was able to use the excess to concentrate on problem areas. My skin felt hydrated and supple after using the mask, though I may need to use it more often to see if it will really brighten my complexion. The milky serum was also not runny and did not drip or create a huge mess. I think this product is good for those who want to brighten their complexion while hydrating their skin.

Stella Tan
Concerned with dull skin, pigmentation, enlarged and clogged pores

For someone with dull skin and enlarged, clogged pores, I think the Whitening Milk Mask from MINON has worked well for my skin type. Although the mask is soaked in a lot of milky serum, it did not drip at all – so impressed! I saw that my skin looked brighter and felt softer, and I want to share about this mask with my friends, especially those with sensitive skin.

Concerned with dull skin, blackheads, and pimples

This mask not only brightened my dull and uneven skin, but also moisturised it. I love using this to relax because it is so hydrating, and fits so well on my face without creating messy residue, making it super easy to use. I am satisfied with the results I have seen – much smoother and brighter skin – so I want to recommend this mask to my friends and colleagues!

Catherine Yap

My main skin problems are pigmentation, blackheads, and dry skin. Using this Whitening Milk Mask helped to make my skin look a lot more supple, and I saw that my skin problems have been alleviated. I love that this adheres very well to my face, and it feels very milky and smooth on my skin. I will recommend my friend (shout out to Denise!) to relax with this mask!

Diana Khor
Concerned with sensitive skin, uneven skin tone, and pigmentation

My complexion is generally clear, but I do suffer from dry, sensitive skin. Using this mask, however, did not give me any allergic symptoms despite having sensitive skin. I like how this mask doesn’t drip serum, so it’s not very messy to use. It also feels very cooling on my skin. I’ll recommend the mask to my friends!

Concerned with dull skin, pigmentation, dark rings, and eye bags

I like the thick milky serum on the mask, which really works to brighten my dull skin and actually tighten my pores. Personally, I find that the mask does not fit me perfectly, but I will share this with my sisters who have sensitive skin. I think the Whitening Milk Mask is quite mild, and certainly suitable for people with sensitive skin.

Kate Tee
Concerned with dull skin and blackheads

This mask is very adhesive and fits my face better than other masks. I like the fact that there’s a generous amount of serum. I enjoy using this mask to relax, as it makes my skin look less inflamed. I also think my skin looks brighter after I have used this mask. I will buy this again because I find that the amount of serum is value-for-money, and I recommend this to people who have dry skin.

Catherine Roxas
Concerned with dull skin, pigmentation, and breakouts

I really enjoy using this mask because the thick serum feels very nice and smells great too. My skin feels smoother and softer after application, and I enjoy it so much that I will definitely use it again and recommend to my friends and family.

I have skin that suffers from a multitude of problems such as acne, dehydration, rough texture, and large pores. However, I saw really impressive results on my skin after using this hydrating mask. I get this healthy glow that lasts until the next morning, and I have also noticed that my makeup lasts well after usage. Having loved using it so much, I want to recommend the MINON Amino Moist’s Moist Essential Mask to everyone around me, and on social media!

I have dry and sensitive skin with acne and patches of redness; however, I was pleased that the Moist Essential Mask did not cause any allergies at all. I find that this mask is better than others that I have used, and I enjoy using it to relax after a long day. I really like how moisturising it makes my skin feel. It is also very nice that the gel serum does not drip, unlike other masks I have used.

Concerned with dry, sensitive skin, and uneven skin tone

The mask is thin and adheres well to the face. There is also plenty of serum left in the mask pack so do apply the remainder on your neck. I saw an improvement in my uneven skin tone. The mask suits my skin very well and I love how it is so easy to use after a long day. Another tip that I would like to share is that you should remove the mask after 15 minutes to avoid over-drying. I will recommend this to anyone looking for a moisturising and brightening mask.

Concerned with dry, sensitive skin, and redness

I really appreciate that the serum from the Moist Essential Mask doesn’t drip, and it fits so much better on my face than other masks. It is also big enough to fit my entire face and it stays even when I move – so impressive! My skin absorbs the serum very easily, so I don’t have to worry about sleeping immediately after masking. I would use this again if I need a fast nighttime skincare routine, and I totally recommend this to people who have no time to do skincare at night.

Concerned with dry, sensitive skin, acne, large pores, scars, and sagging

After removing the mask, the serum absorbs well into skin through patting, which was something I’ve not observed for other masks. There is also no residue stickiness. My skin felt firmer and more supple after usage. I also felt that the amount of serum in each mask pack is adequate. I think the design of the mask could be improved – the nose flap didn’t quite cover the sides of my nose. I also suggest that you don’t use this to entirely replace other skincare steps such as lotion or moisturiser. I’ll recommend it to people of all skin types below age 30, especially if you are always sitting in an air-conditioned room.

Melissa Loh
Concerned with dry, sensitive skin, uneven skin tone, and dark eye circles

This mask does not have a strong fragrance, which is good for my sensitive skin. The serum is comfortably moisturising, and my skin felt very hydrated after using it. There was some excess serum in the packet, but you can just spread it over the mask when it is on your face so that you don’t waste it. I’ll use this again, but maybe once a week as it is very hydrating. I like that the price is affordable, and because it is found in drugstores, I would buy this again because it’s convenient to get my hands on it.

Xue Ting
Concerned with dry, sensitive skin, and redness

I have sensitive skin with redness, but I did not face any allergic symptoms using the Moist Essential Mask – in fact, the mask even calmed down the redness on my skin! The gel serum also absorbs very well into my skin, and feels much more moisturising than other masks that I have used before. There isn’t a sticky or greasy feeling from using this mask at all. And because it adheres so well to my face, I don’t have to worry about it sliding off my face, or serum dripping everywhere. Of course I would repurchase and recommend this!

Lee Ching Wee
Concerned with dry, dull skin

I find that the gel serum on this mask absorbs very quickly into my dry and dull skin. The mask adheres better on my face than other masks, and the serum doesn’t drip at all. It did a fantastic job in keeping my face moisturised and worked very well for my dry skin type. I highly recommend this to my pals who are working in air-conditioned offices.

Sng Yu Han
Concerned with dry skin, whitehead and blackhead build-ups

My skin is dehydrated, which causes whiteheads and blackheads to build up. However, after I have used this highly-moisturising mask, I saw an improvement in my skin. I also love that the mask adheres to my face well, so I can actually do my work while masking. I definitely recommend the Moist Essential Mask to my friends and family.

Concerned with dry skin, acne, and pigmentation

This Moist Essential Mask is much better than other masks that I have tried, and I love relaxing at night while using this mask. I like the results I have seen after using it, there is an immediate improvement in my overall complexion just from using it twice. It worked very well for dry skin, and I’ll recommend this to anyone looking for a hydrating sheet mask.
