In my last post, I talked about Japanese Beauty Products Must-Haves and I mentioned Minon Amino Moist mask in the list. As one of the most popular facial mask in Japan, it always stays on the top of Cosme Ranks. While I don’t fully believe in the ranks, I still want to give it a try. A lot of my friends love it, but is it good for me as a combination skinned girl? You can find my answer in this minon amino moist review below.

Now its popularity has spread all over the world and you can buy it online or in your local shops.However, the first box of my minon amino moist mask comes from a friend who went to Japan frequently about 3 years ago. In fact, my first time to hear about it is through my friends’ Facebook post and caught my eyes so I ask her to bring me this mask from Japan.


I love pink so I like this light pink packaging. The box comes with 4 sheets in it and every sheet is just the same size as the kracie mask I introduced before. Yes, it is typical Japanese style. The Japanese character on the cover shows that this minon amino moist mask is designed for sensitive and dry skin.

As a product designed for sensitive skin, the ingredients in it should be very careful. When you look at the ingredients list, you will find that it does what it claims to do. It is fragrance-free and alcohol-free. A lot of moisture properties had been put in it such as butylene glycol,pentylene glycol, and glycerin that will provide enough moisture for your face.

You may notice the name of this facial mask contains “amino”. Hence, other important ingredients in this “amino mask” definitely include a few of amino acids-for example, arginine, glutamate, and threonine. Amino acid works well on retaining moisture and boosting the healthy metabolism.

When I opened the mask bag, I was a little bit surprised by its jelly texture. As you know, most of the essence in sheet masks is watery but this one is not. The sheet is made of pure cotton and infused with jelly essence.

When I apply this Minon Amino Moist Mask on my face, I feel quite comfortable and breathable. Due to their careful selection of ingredients, I don’t get any itchy feeling or irritation. It just likes the touch of mom, gentle and soft.

When I take it off,  I find that my face absorbs the jelly essence very well and only left a little. My skin becomes plump up and soft.  This “moist” mask does its job and makes my face well moisturized and this feeling can last to the next day.

Besides, This mask is big enough for most girls.


I always use it after my deep cleansing mask and will use a moisturizer to lock the essence into my face. Besides, I like to use it when I go to a very dry area or before attending an important party. I always put the extra essence left in the mask bag on my neck and arms. I usually use it 1-2 times a week.


My sensitive skinned girls love this amino moist mask because it is the only one face mask they can use when they get redness or irritation. It can help to make your face “clam down”. As I am not sensitive skinned so I use it as hydration mask. I have to say it is one of the best hydration I have ever used. It not only offers enough moisture for my skin but also makes me feel quite peaceful.  I use it as rescue mask and weekly mask at the same time.


  • Very good moisturizing effect
  • Fragrance-free
  • Alcohol-free
  • Designed for sensitive skin
  • Easy to absorb



For me, Minon Amino Moist is the best Japanese face mask I have ever used before. It is gentle and effective which suit for all skin types especially when your face feels thirsty.  For sensitive skinned girls, you should give it a try! It is safer than other brands and may help you to reduce redness or irritation.
