I’m not allowed to call myself a Mediheal fangirl anymore because I had no idea this even existed. The idea behind foil masks is to utilize our own body heat to open up the pores for better deliverability and also to prevent the essence from evaporating into the air.
This foil mask contains 70% saccharomyces ferment filtrate, a by product of the fermentation process. It encourages cell turnover, leading to brighter, more even and hydrated skin. It also contains beta-glucan (heal), niacinamide (brighten), hyaluronic acid (hydrate), and honey extract (antibacterial).
My skin is feeling pretty good today, just some redness and a few post acne marks that need fading. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, I detected a strong fragrance that reminded me of expensive perfumes. Essence was clear and gooey. The mask sheet wasn’t as juicy as regular masks, mostly due to the fact that it’s foil on one side and cotton on the other. The foil side tends to stick to each other so be gentle unfolding them. I appreciate that it comes in 2 pieces, top and bottom, for better fit.
Adherence wasn’t fantastic but it’s the best among a couple other foil masks I tried. It did not lift up as much as other masks due to how thin it was. The material on the chin wasn’t long enough to tuck under the chin for better adherence, instead it stops at my chin and was barely clinging on.
There was a slight warming sensation, which stayed constant throughout the 35 mins of wear, unlike other foil masks which got too warm and uncomfortable the longer I wear it.
I flipped the bottom piece over to show the cotton side.
My skin felt hydrated, plump, bouncy and chok chok. I didn’t see any brightening effects but my skin looked so radiant and healthy! I looked as if my life had been nothing but a bed of roses heheh! Finish was silky and non-sticky. There was a slight redness most likely from the warmth.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I’d reckon this is great for hot summer nights. Find more reviews of Mediheal masks here.
