I love my face masks. At least once a week I'll slap one on and let the nourishing goodness seep in while

My latest mask is this sheet version from The Face Shop. I've tried a few from here since they are complete steal at $3-$5 and covered in delightful Engrish.
Today I've picked out the Real Nature Mask in Mung Bean to slap on my skin that's just starting to feel that winter drain. I have zero idea why I chose this particular one out of the apple, peach, milk and other desserty-sounding varieties because mung beans are foul little things with sticky fingers sent to destroy otherwise tasty dishes by being all gross and fermented up in their business.
The cloth mask thankfully didn't have a strong scent, just a light green soy smell. It's fairly easy to plop on, no excess fluid and the cloth was big enough to cover my entire face, even too big on the chin.
After 15 minutes, I rubbed in the excess serum left and chucked my night cream on top. This mask claims brightening and rehydrating properties and while I felt nice and smooth afterwards, there wasn't any obvious brightening benefits. I did get a nice my dose of moisture though and my cheeks especially felt zomg amazing the next morning.

What do you think? Is less pretty, more gritty okay? Or am I bringing super shame on Boyfriend for my dorkalicious snaps?
