Before I start on My Beauty Diary Masks reviews, I thought I'd show some comparisons between the old and new MBDs. Which was something I was curious about when I first researched and started using them.
The 2 boxes of masks I'm comparing today have been manufactured on different dates, unfortunately I'm not exactly sure when the masks were changed in packaging and thickness.
Japanese Cherry Blossom : 2009. 11. 25 - 2012. 11. 25
Black Pearl: 2010. 07. 28 - 2013. 07. 28
MBDs have a shelf life of 3 years
I forgot to mention, on the new boxes the little mask on the front under the "flavor/ scent" is filled in with shiny gold, where as the old ones only have the outline...
Right Side View
not a significant difference, cherry blossom outline only/ black pearl two-toned, colored in
Left Side View
black pearl: company info on the side instead of back, has extra design detail, where as cherry blossom is solid color block
obvious difference in layout, graphics in BP
Personally I prefer the back of the new boxes more because the words are not as cramped, more "professional"looking and it's more aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Mask Pack Front:
the black pearl is 1/16" bigger at the top, but same size other then that
Mask Pack Back:
more info regarding mask on BP, I like this better because the user can recycle the box and still know info on the mask
old mask (japanese cherry blossom) thick, less flexible
new mask (Black Pearl), WAY thinner, more serum, more flexibility in fit
I will have one more post on MBD and it's tips to get the most out of your MBDs~
then I'll get on to the reviews =]
