Mediheal Dress Code Sheet Masks Review

This is a review for the Mediheal Dress Code Sheet Masks Code Blue, Code Black, and Code Violet.

These are beautifully designed sheet masks ready for a masquerade but with extracts and essences that provide various benefits for your skin type and needs.  The overall fit of the masks is too small on the eyes. If the masks gets too close to the eyes, the essences can cause some stinging.  The nose area also does not fit flush on top and does not completely cover the entire nose.

Mediheal Dress Code Blue (Herb Aqua Care) Mask

Has a variety of herb extracts including baobab (Adansonia digitata) leaves, large flower cactus, medicine sage leaves, lavender, chrysanthemum.  It is supposed to control oil, have anti-aging and brightening benefits.

This smells great, it has a subtle light lavender fragrance! It has a cool tingling sensation, has enough essence to saturate the sheet mask.  Left my face feeling tightened, and taut afterward.  I’m not sure if this left my skin hydrated.  I only left the mask on for the recommended 20 minutes.  This contains Sea Water, which may or may not help with nourishing or hydration.

This was also cooling as I was wearing the mask.  My cheeks started to get itchy after 10 minutes though, which I did not experience with the other two.  There may be an ingredient that I’m sensitive or allergic to. I’m generally not sensitive or have allergic reactions to skin care products.  But, there is a first time for everything.

With this one, I did not feel or notice too much hydration or brightening effects.  Notable ingredients are acai berry (Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract), pomegranate (Punica Granatum Fruit Extract, and blueberry extract, all of which are antioxidants and are recognized as “Super Fruits” and has numerous benefits.

Ingredients:

Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium EDTA, Panthenol, Trehalose, Betaine, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Extract, Opunita Ficus-Indica Extract, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Water, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Myrciaria Dubia Fruit Extract, Morinda Citrifolia Extract, Punica Granatum Fruit Extract, Ficus Carica (Fig ) Fruit Extract, Morus Alba Fruit Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Nut Extract, Methylparaben, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Beta-Glucan, Allantoin, Triethanolamine, Polysorbate 80, Adenosine, Fragrance.

 

Mediheal Dress Code Black (Whitening & Nourishing) Mask

In my opinion the fanciest of the three.  It actually has red jewels on it! Formulated with Pearl Powder Extract to control Melanin formation and correcting skin tone.  This also has cacao extract, which is a bonus in my book (I’m a bit of a chocoholic).

Again, this had a cooling effect while letting the essence absorb through the skin. Afterward, there was some slight redness, skin felt tightened, but it also left my skin slightly tacky.  There was extra essence that I was able to rub onto my neck, decolletage, and hands.  I suppose my skin felt nourished but as far as whitening, I did not notice any whitening or brightening effects.  Perhaps, if I had left the mask on longer than the recommended 10-20 minutes, the whitening effects would be more noticeable.

Ingredients:

Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium EDTA, Panthenol, Trehalose, Betaine, Hippophae Rhamnoides Water, Glycine Max (Soybean) Seed Extract, Pisum Sativum (Pea) Extract, Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Extract, Pearl Extract, Honey Extract, Caviar Extract, Propolis Extract, Royal Jelly Extract, Paeonia Lactiflora Root Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Polygonum Multiflorum Root Extract, Phellinus Linteus Extract, Morus Alba Bark Extract, Sophora Flavescens Root Extract, Cimicifuga Racemosa Root Extract, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Extract, Angelica Gigas Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Methylparabe, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Beta-Glucan, Allantoin, Triethanolamine, Polysorbate 80, Fragrance.

Overall, these masks besides the beautiful masquerade design on the masks are not very much special than other masks I have tried.  They do have wonderful extract ingredients which have the potential to be effective.  Perhaps wearing the masks longer or multiple treatments may provide the claimed effects.  I do not overdo the masks as I have oily/combination skin and doing so can increase oil production on my T-zone.

I give these masks 4/5 stars.  1 extra star for the beautiful masquerade designs.

Jeju Natural Green Tea Mask and Volcanic Mask

A good sized mask, it has flaps so that you can fold the mask to fit your face if it is too big.  Too often, my biggest issue is the fit of sheet masks.  Bigger is better, we can just fold the over flaps.  The eye holes can be folded on the sides of the masks.  The nose flap could be bigger to fit/cover bigger noses.  These masks tend to fit smaller noses.  There is plenty of product essence to feel the effects, and stays on the face, it is not too wet.

Aqua Jeju Natural Green Tea 

This mask is to provide deep moisture & pure skin.  There’s a mild green tea fragrance that dissipates quickly.  This mask provided a cool, tingly sensation upon the first 5 minutes of wearing the mask.  After 20 minutes I removed the mask and massage my face with the remaining mask essence.  My face felt hydrated, I didn’t feel that I needed moisturizer.  My skin felt soft, plump, and supple.  It helped to hydrate my cheeks, as I was suffering from dry cheeks.

Volcanic Pore Care & Sebum Control Mask

This had a subtle floral, hint of rose fragrance that dissipates quickly.  Wearing the mask also provided a cool, tingly sensation.  After 20 minutes, I removed the mask,and massage the remaining essence to leave my face feeling slightly tacky, but felt moisturized, and hydrated.  Just not as much as the Green Tea Mask.  There was some mild redness, pores seem to appear smaller, and my face felt taut.

I’m giving these masks a 3.5 stars out of 5.  Just because there was sizing issue with the nose flaps, and I didn’t feel as much of a profound result on the Volcanic mask.
