Hello girls, today I am going to post an article on how to differentiate My Beauty Diary Mask from Taiwan. In fact, I was being cheated by a large online shopping company in my country for selling me the FAKE mask. Actually you can tell which is genuince and which one is not, by looking at the box. I started to grow suspicious when the sales person sent me a photo of the expiry date and lot numbers. Coincidentally, my friend bought me 2 boxes - Bulgarian Rose and Red Vine - of MBD mask from Taiwan in April, hence, I decided to do comparison on both with the Arbutin and Rice Mask that I bought from that website.
There are few issues that I would like to address:
1) Anti fake sticker aka something like that, in circle shape.
In the official MBD website, it was something like the below photo, not the circle shape
"Fake" anti-fake sticker!
2) QR code
Those I got from Taiwan and from Myimart have a different QR code. Please refer to the photos. I compared both RICE and ARBUTIN with those I got from Taiwan - BULGARIAN ROSE and RED WINE
3) The pre-cut slits
Bulgarian rose is 1.0 cm while the arbutin is 0.8cm
4) Stains and mark/miscolour on the date of manufacture and expiry
5) Lot number font and colour
Bulgarian Rose - Thin, bold and clearer with 6 digit serial number at the end of Lot W.B
Arbutin - pixelated and large without serial number after C.B wording
6) The Box
This method is shown by Hong Kong authorities on how to spot the real and fake masks. They are all on the news.
7) Watermark in front of the packaging.
There is a watermark of serial number for REAL mask back to the year of 2010/2011 where many bloggers spotted. However, in 2013 new packaging there is no watermark, yet I found out that there is a watermark on the Arbutin mask that I bought from M******
Left: Arbutin Right: Red Vine, Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen which my friend and sister got for me from Taiwan
8) Picture of the Mask sheet
compared both pictures
These are the 8 findings that I spotted so far!
I will be reviewed its content in Part 2. Stay tuned! I will inspect the mask since the person in charge of MBD in Taiwan claimed that they couldn't help to identify the authenticity based on the outlook. But she reassured that the content inside in 99% NOT THE SAME!
PLEASE BE AWARE AND DO NOT GET CHEATED!
WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS ITS CONTENT INSIDE THE FAKE MASK THAT WILL CAUSE HARM TO OUR SKIN!
