Review: The Face Shop Milk Calcium Nail Pack

I am finally going down Miri tomorrow for a day trip. I am supposed to go Miri on a weekend in February when Andrea came home from Singapore and another time when Jennie and I planned to be in Miri to meet Grace. But I wasn’t able to make it to both as I couldn’t find transportation to meet Andrea at the very last minute and meeting up with Grace was cancelled because I had to move house on that particular Sunday. But nevertheless, the gathering still carried on without me. LOL!

The reason why I am going Miri tomorrow is that I needed to visit the traditional Chinese doctor for a medical consultation. It’s been more than 6 months since I last went to him and I don’t even remember what’s the direction to his clinic. KinG drove me there twice and I did not really check out the directions as I know he is capable of remembering the routes. Hopefully, Alan will be able to find the place tomorrow given the minimal knowledge from me.

The Face Shop Milk Calcium Nail Pack

Anyways, I decided to give my fingernails a little bit of pampering yesterday evening whilst watching the latest episode of The Mentalist. I bought The Face Shop Milk Calcium Nail Pack in early of last month while I was window shopping with Joo Sie. She was still short on couple of bucks to make it for their membership. So, I helped her out a little by buying this product and The Face Shop Paraffin Nutrition Nail Pack.

The instructions at the back of the packaging were all written in Korean language. A foreign language which I couldn’t even understand a single word in it. So, I decided to Google about the product and see what other beauty bloggers mentioned about the directions of usage. How pitiful!

This was how my fingernails looked like before the nail pampering. They don’t really look that bad, don’t they? LOL! The cuticles on my thumbs are usually drier compared to my other fingers.

I know I got the application method all wrong as the cotton parts were supposed to be facing the nails. I did turn them over after this picture was taken as I couldn’t be bothered to take another picture after they were switched over.

So, please do remember to use it the other way around instead of what was illustrated in the above picture. Leave them on your fingers for at least 10 – 15 minutes before removing them. When removed, gently massage the remaining essence like how you would usually do when applying lotions onto your hands.

So, this is how my nails looked after I removed the nail pack like 15 minutes later.

A packet of The Face Shop Milk Calcium Nail Pack came with 10 pieces of these nail mask caps and they were separated in 5 for easy usage. These nail mask caps came in quite a big size as there’s still plenty of space left after I slotted them onto my fingers. They were drenched in generous amount of essence and they were a lot more sticky compared to the essence on facial sheet masks. In terms of the fragrance, I would say it smelled quite nice but powdery to me. But I would prefer if it comes with a minimal scent than what they are having right now.

As for the effectiveness, I would say the effect was short lasting. Why? I could see that my cuticles had returned to it’s original state this morning. My fingers indeed felt moisturized and soft after application though.

So, here’s what I think of The Face Shop Milk Calcium Nail Pack in a nutshell:

Pros:
1. Smells nice but powdery to me.
2. Nail mask caps were drenched with generous amount of essence.
3. Fits majority sizes of fingers.
4. Nails felt moisturized and soft after application.

Cons:
1. Prefers if the scent is less stronger.
2. Effects don’t last long, only for the night.

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5

Price: B$2.90

Repurchase? Don’t think so
