Review: Mediheal Black Chip Circle Point Mask (Swelling) ★☆☆☆☆
Another Mediheal mask I’ve never seen before! This is a very unique mask that comes with raised bumps that are meant to show you where to press on the skin to create an acupuncture effect. It contains peptide, horse chestnut extract, beta glucan, and indian oriental extract, to hydrate and reduce swelling. Just what I need after an extraction session.
My skin is a very irritated and dry today. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, it gave off a faint candy scent. The natural cotton sheet felt soft and somewhat thin, just like Mediheal’s Line Friends and Dress Code masks. Apparently, these masks are made of bemliese fabric that are made of short fiber cotton and have great liquid retention capabilities. Essence was a clear watery-gel.
Fit and adherence were great! I’m guessing that side with raised bumps touches the skin to better mimic acupuncture. Some one please correct me if I’m wrong. I had this on for 30 mins, where I pressed on all the bumps once in the beginning and again before I take the mask off.
I’ve learnt some basic facial acupuncture to try to release tension in the muscles that were causing my migraines. So I sort know where the points should be. The points on this sheet mask are some what accurate, but not quite. And since everyone has different face shapes, an accurate point for me may be inaccurate for others.
Essence did not take very long to dry down/absorb and leave behind a slightly tacky, semi-matte finish. Other than moderate hydration, I did not notice any other effects. My skin is still red, which I’m guessing was due to all that pressing. Also, the bumps left some indents on my skin that looked like acne box scars.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I think this is a creative concept and is a great #skintertainment mask for people who want a beginner’s intro into acupuncture. Other than that, I do not recommend it. Find more reviews of Mediheal masks here.
