Review: Mediheal Sheet Masks, Part II

The last time I wrote about Mediheal sheet masks, it ended up being this lengthy, convoluted post that never seemed to want to stop. So this time around, I have decided to make this post’s format a little more compact and easier to read. Here’s the TL;DR, first off and then I will get into a brief description and my thoughts for each.

Would Repurchase

Watermide Hydrop Essential Mask REX

Ingredients: Purified Water, Glycerin, Propanediol, Niacinamide, Sodium Hyaluronate, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Xylitylglucoside, Anhydroxylitol, Xylitol, Panthenol, Trehalose, Betaine, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Portulaca oleracea Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Beta-Glucan, Sea water, Cactus extract, Swiftlet nest extract, Hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) leaf extract, Fomes officinalis (mushroom) extract, Xanthan Gum, Butylene Glycol, Boswellia serrata resin extract, Carbomer, Allantoin, Polysorbate 60, Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, Arginine, Disodium EDTA, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrances

My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this mask as I thought that its hydrating and brightening effects were bar none. Skin felt super comfortable, soothed and brightened afterwards, and existing blemishes felt as though they’d decided to take a backseat, if only for a short while because, well, adult acne is a real thing. Skin felt great throughout the next day too.

Whitening Bubble Tox Serum Mask

Ingredients: Water,Hydrogenated Polydecene,Polyisobutene,Methyl Perfluoroisobutyl Ether,Methyl Perfluorobutyl Ether,Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride,Niacinamide,1,2-Hexanediol,Cyclopentasiloxane,Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate,Cetyl Alcohol,Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate,Glycereth-26,PEG-100 Stearate,Glyceryl Stearate,Glycerin,Betaine,Decyl Glucoside,Acrylates Copolymer,Hydroxyacetophenone,Dipropylene Glycol,Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer,Stearyl Alcohol,Myristic Acid,Hydrogenated Lecithin,Carbomer,Arginine,Myristyl Alcohol,Allantoin,Disodium EDTA,Lauryl Alcohol,Butylene Glycol,Zeolite,Milk Protein Extract,Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Water,Pearl Extract,Ethylhexylglycerin,Hydrogenated Polyisobutene,Equisetum Arvense Extract,Lycopodium Clavatum Extract,Glutathione,Anemarrhena Asphodeloides Root Extract,Fragrance,

My Thoughts: This mask bubbles up as soon as it gets in contact with air and it feels as though your face is getting licked by kittens. All gimmicky bubbliness aside – which I enjoyed tremendously, by the way, I am not above a good gimmick – this mask was, again, very hydrating and brightening, with results that lasted throughout the next day. This would be a great little treat for when you’re having a little spa day or just want a bit of fun in the bathroom. 😉

Just OK

Bamboo Charcoal 4D Black Mask

Ingredients: Water, Methylpropanediol, Propylene Glycol, Bambusa vulgaris Extract, *Vaccinium angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, *Rubus fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit Extract, Caviar Extract, Glycine soja (Soybean) Seed Extract, Sesamum indicum (Sesame) Seed Extract, Vitis vinifera (Grape) Fruit Extract, Morus alba Fruit Extract, Solanum melongena (Eggplant) Fruit Extract, Oryza sativa (Rice) Extract, Laminaria japonica Extract, Undaria pinnatifida Extract, Chlorella minutissima Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Charcoal Powder (10 ppm), Glycereth-26, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Betaine, Panthenol, Allantoin, Erythritol, Hydroxyethyl Urea, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Chondrus crispus Powder, Dipropylene Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Adenosine, Tropolone, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Pentylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Carbomer, Potassium Hydroxide, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Ethyl Hexanediol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Phenoxyethanol

My Thoughts: This was a nice enough masks but I just did not see it do anything besides cooling down skin after I left it in the fridge. The fit was good, the material was cushy and comfortable, and it was lightly hydrating though, so I’ll have to give it that. I also appreciated that it was not fragranced.

My Thoughts: This mask was hydrating but it contained fragrance. On the other hand, the mask material was not bad at all for the price. For some reason, it just was not very memorable and as soon as I had used up all of them that came in that pack of five, I moved on without ever thinking twice.

A Zero Shot Pharmask

Ingredients: Water; Glycerin; Propanediol; 1;2-Hexanediol; Zeolite; Beta-Glucan; Glycine Max (Soybean) Seed Extract; Pisum Sativum (Pea Extract); Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Extract; Lavandula Augustiflia (Lavender) Extract; Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract; Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract; Cymbopogon; Schoenanthus Extract; Xanthan Gum; Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Extract; Panthenol; Trehalose; Betaine; Carbomer; Allantoin; Polysorbate 80; Arginine; Disodium EDTA; Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate; Tocopherol Actate; Centella Asiatica Extract; Houttuynia Cordata Extract; Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Extract; Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract; Saururus Chinensis Extract; Portulaca Oleracea Extract; Chrysanthellum Indicum Extract; Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil

My Thoughts: This mask supposedly eliminates redness and is meant to soothe stressed, sensitised skin. Well, I did not experience either of that. Plus, the mask material was sort of flimsy and too thin, in my opinion. On the other hand, there was no added fragrance and skin felt hydrated and refreshed, the refreshing effect being mainly due to me putting it in the fridge beforehand.

WOULD NOT BUY AGAIN

Paper Mulberry 4D White Mask

Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycereth-26, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Mulberry Root Extract (19,000 ppm), 1,2-Hexanediol, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Betaine, Phenoxyethanol, Arginine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Carbomer, Allantoin, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Platycodon grandiflorus Root Extract, Radish Extract, Albumin Extract, Milk Extract, Coconut Extract, White Asparagus Extract, Disodium EDTA, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate, Onion Extract, Ginseng Extract, Cauliflower Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrance, Tremella fuciformis (Mushroom) Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ethylhexyl Glycerin, Caprylyl Glycol

My Thoughts: The fit of this mask was not that great – it sort of slopped and flopped around and was too large on the forehead, but at least the large eye flaps meant that I was able to give the skin around my peepers extra moisture. Plus, the material was absolutely gorgeous and I feel as though the photos do not do this mask justice – it is kind of like expensive, silky craft paper and it adheres to your skin really well, apparently that is thanks to the mulberry that was used in manufacturing the mask material. The mask was also a little hydrating. What seriously put me off about the mask was the irritating fragrance. It smells like 90s hand towelettes, the cheapest kind you could get at the supermarkets at the time. It is a strong scent that lingers while you have the mask on, thankfully it disappears once you continue with the rest of your regime. I’d give this at least one more star if it were not for the fragrance. So unnecessary!

Placenta Revital Essential Mask REX

Ingredients: Purified Water, Glycerin, Propanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Hydrolyzed placental extract (5,000 ppm), Hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) water, Glycine max (soybean) seed extract, Hydrolyzed chitosan, Wheat amino acids, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Panthenol, Trehalose, Betaine, Disodium EDTA, Butylene Glycol, Boswellia serrata resin extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Portulaca oleracea Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Beta-Glucan, Allantoin, Polysorbate 60, Adenosine, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Arginine, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrances

My Thoughts: This did… nothing? Plus, I did not like the mask material, which supposedly is made from bamboo. Again, I found it kind of crappy and too thin to really feel good on skin. And while I am not squeamish about the fact that it contains placenta extract, I do not appreciate that Mediheal does not reveal what placenta we are talking about. Sheep? Human? Cow? Curious minds want to know.

Tea Tree Care Solution Essential Mask REX

Ingredients: Purified Water, Glycerin, Propanediol, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) extract (150 ppm), Tea Tree Leaf Oil (50 ppm), Centella Asiatica Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Glycine max (soybean) seed extract, Pisum sativum (pea) seed extract, Salvia officinalis (sage) extract, Lavandula angustifolia (lavender) extract, Chamomilla recutita (matricaria) extract, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Xanthan Gum, Butylene Glycol, Boswellia serrata resin extract, Panthenol, Trehalose, Betaine, Carbomer, Allantoin, Polysorbate 60, Arginine, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ethylhexylglycerin

My Thoughts: This mask was advertised as to contain tea tree oil, which supposedly is meant to soothe sensitive skin in particular. If you have acne, this is also meant to keep breakouts at bay due to its anti inflammatory properties. I however did not feel as though I reaped any benefits whatsoever, and I did not like the silly mask material either. This did quite honestly do nothing for me whatsoever but at least it was not fragranced.

Final Thoughts

Well, not too difficult what my final thoughts here might be. I’d recommend Watermide and Whitening Bubble Tox.

  • I will have to say that I did get confused by Mediheal’s choice of wording at times. In some of their ad copy, they proclaim proudly that their masks do not contain phenoxyethanol, a safe preservative according to Incide Coder, and yet two of the masks in this post do contain it (Bamboo Charcoal Black and Mulberry White). What’s good, Mediheal?
  • Generally speaking, I would rate many of their masks higher if they did not contain fragrance and if the material was a bit nicer.

Have you tried any Mediheal masks as of late?

  1. I still haven’t tried the tea tree one that I have (I have a 6 normal and 1 dust version), I feel like I need a little breather from sheet masks because nothing really wows me. I’ve tried the placenta one before but really placental extracts in products won’t do much topically it was just something interesting to try out haha and you’re right they should say where it’s from too. When I worked for DHC any of their products that had placental extract was from pigs if I remember correctly, but they only told us that during product training and didn’t mention it on the products 😀

      1. I always thought they use placenta from cow. Maybe I read about somewhere, but not sure at the moment.

  2. 🙂 This one with tea tree is my must-have mask. It does soothe and hydrate, but yes its anti-blemish properties are so la la, I think could be more. But as sheet mask its very good for oily blemished skin.
