Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@ather, Mediheal really does a wonderful job with their masks, and they have so many. 😍 Of the ones you’ve tried, so you have a favorite? Or favorites? 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  I think my favs would be the P.D.F and the N.M.F. I was thinking the placenta one was also mediheal but I can’t find the picture. I usually always keep the NMF on hand. I find it helps keep my face feeling better when I have any irritation or if I accidentally use to much acids on it. I haven’t found one I didn’t like!! I think I saw you really enjoy the collagen one! I need to pick that one up next time I see it! 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

image.jpg@ather  This one?  

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@heartsmyface, do you like this one? 
@ather 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@heartsmyface  Yes!!!! It’s so good also!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@ather, is this the one you’re thinking about?

I think I have this from a variety set but haven’t tried it yet. I do remember you liking it so its one I’m interested in.

 

Here’s  the collagen mask. It’s a nice one; makes my skin plumpy.

And I forgot about this one - I don’t know how I could forget; this one is fantastic. So moisturizing and nourishing. I picked up a pack of 10.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  Yes that’s it. I thought it was mediheal!! I really enjoyed this one. I remember it really making my skin feel good! It is a bit of an odd ingredient but I’ve read it’s actually a really good one!!! I’ll have to grab the collagen and the DNA one. I can’t turn down a mask that will make my face plumpy! I’ve seen them around. I also really like the fit and adherence on this brand. I am not overly picky but if it’s sliding down it’s definitely a no for me!! 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@ather, the brand went through a recent (maybe a year ago actually) repackaging and redesign of their sheet mask - don’t think the ingredients changed, at least not the masks I tend to go for more frequently; just to the look of the packet and the sheet. The newer version includes a sheet with an imprint of the Mediheal logo lasered(?) throughout the material, the idea being that when you see the Mediheal logo appear on the sheet, it’s time to take it off. I think it’s super helpful, especially for those new to sheet masks, but also for those for whom sheet-masking is almost an instinctual part of our skincare routine. It is interesting to see how the logo appears on certain parts of my face first - the more parched sections. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  that’s so cool!!! I love how knowledgeable you are about this brand. I really need to do more research!! They seem so innovative also! 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Awww, thank you @ather! I tend to like to do a deep dive of brands with multiple products I really enjoy, if / when I have the time. 😊 

 

I think skincare has seen a lot of innovations, both in the Asian and North American markets, and in other countries as well. That’s always so fun for me. Though it means I have to work harder to not go overboard with picking up all the latest products. πŸ˜‚ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Good review, @itsfi! It definitely sounds like Mediheal was taking some liberties on the color spectrum with their black ingredients LOL. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@quspork, Mediheal sheet masks have been good to me so I’m willing to give them some creative license with their claims. πŸ˜† @heartsmyface mentioned below ⬇️  that some wording may have been lost in translation. In any event, my face likes bamboo charcoal sheet masks in the warmer months and this is one I’ll keep stocking every so often. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi I'm always on the hunt for a charcoal sheet mask that gives me similar effects to traditional charcoal masks. So far I haven't had much luck. This one sounds on the promising side, I might have to give it a go. The search continues, lol.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@QueenMarceline, hahaha! Does the search ever come to an end? πŸ˜‚ There have been a few masks I've found that I would be happy with using that mask forever and then it gets discontinued. Story of my sheet mask life. Sigh. I do like charcoal sheet masks but for the oilier parts of my face or areas where I'm more prone to clogged pores, I prefer a wash off clay mask. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi Ugh! Story of my sheet mask life too. I loved some of the old discontinued Sephora sheet masks. The new ones can be fun but nothing feels quite the same to the gold/precious metals editions of the Sephora masks from a few years back or the Lavender and Almond foot sheet masks... sigh. Can we please bring these goodies back? πŸ˜­

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@QueenMarceline, if you have a petition to sign for discontinued sheet masks we'd like to bring back, you just direct that signature page my way. And while you're at it, everyone on this thread would probably sign it as well for one discontinued sheet mask or another. πŸ˜‰

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi Hahah, oh I am sure of it! Maybe we need to start those petitions. πŸ€£

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi   Well, technically blueberries are purple πŸ˜‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@heartsmyface, ha! I guess 10 black foods is a better marketing angle than 7 black foods, 2 purple ones and a green one. πŸ˜† This has made me wonder what other foods they could have included that are black in color and have skincare benefits. πŸ€” So far, I’ve come up with black tea, black currents, black caviar, black Mission figs and chia seeds. πŸ–€

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  I suppose not!  Poppy seeds?   Wait why does it need to be black?  Did something get lost in translation?  

edit- ah ha!  I’m going to bet the Korean version says pitch dark

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Ooh, poppy seeds! Great idea @heartsmyface. I noticed that the front of the packaging calls out that the mask as having "10 black foods" as a draw. I'm not sure what the significance of that is, because the 10 listed, along with the others in the INCI list are great.
