[SKINFOOD] Acorn Jelly Mask

Happy New Year 2012!!

Exactly 1 year ago I celebrated New Year's Eve in Taiwan with my boyfriend. Time goes fast!! 

Anyway, I'm getting busy from now on therefore I can't write a review everyday.
For the last time in 2011 I wanna review 2 products: One of them is the Acorn Jelly Mask from [SKINFOOD]. This wash-off mask is good for people with oily skin and large pores.

Description: A mask pack that effectively tightens oil-clogged enlarged pores and exfoliates layers of dead skin cells with powdered acorns from Jiri-mountain.
The Mask comes in a (glass) jar and contains 100g. It has a brown plastic lid and the product description is written on that small booklet. Under the lid is another translucent plastic cover to protect the product.
The Acorn Jelly Mask comes with a small spoon/ spatula which makes it easier to take out the product. It has a brown, jelly-like consistency and becomes more watery when I massage it on my skin. The fragrance is very strong and weird. Smells kinda nutty! 
I'm pretty sure that is the scent of acorns.
When I use the mask I massage it over my skin and wait for a few minutes before I wash it off again. Some people say it starts to burn on their skin and that they can barely wait for 1 minute. I don't have that problem, though.
I'm not really sure how the product shall work in such a short time but my pores looking a little bit smaller and some dead skin cells are removed as well. 

How to use: After washing, apply an ample amount onto the face and massage gently.
Leave for 1 minute, and then rinse off with lukewarm water.

Price: around 12,- €/ US$16 
Bought at: eBay (zinopark) 

What I love:   
There is nothing I really love! 

What I don’t like: 
The scent is weird but thats almost all.   

Will I buy this again? No, I won't! 

I also got a Sample of the Acai Berry Mask which I will review fast, too:
Description: A mask pack that quenches thirsty dry skin with abundunt moisture in the extract of Acai Berries from the Amazon jungle. 

This Acai Berry Mask is good for dry skin and comes as full-size in the same design as the Acorn Jelly Mask
It has a gel-like consistency which is slightly pink/ reddish with some red/ brown granules inside. These granules peel your skin plus, it smells like berries!
After using this Mask my skin felt smoother.

How to use: After washing, apply an ample amount onto a damp face and massage gently. Leave for 5 minutes, and the rinse off with lukewarm water.
