So here we are at day three of my Sheet Mask Marathon. You can check out the intro post here for more information if you need it. After that, check out:
Today is all about the charcoal! I found myself having a breakout one week along with dryness. So I reached for my Mediheal WHP (white hydrating power) Charcoal-Mineral sheet mask. Mediheal (from my research… if I’m wrong, please correct me) is a sister brand to Leader’s. Both of these brands are popular in Korea and many k-beauty enthusiasts love their sheet masks.
On the front of the package, it says:
“Mediheal is a cosmedical brand that was created and tested by aesthetic specialists using principles of treatments. Mediheal incorporates special skin prescription and know-how of skin specialist to provide custom solution for individuals based on their skin concerns and renews the skin to look and feel like it has received professional skin management. Mediheal uses a highly concentrated formulation of natural materials, helps your unbalanced skin become healthier by making it resistant to stress and restoring skin balance.”
What it does: Charcoal is used in skincare for its purifying properties. Additional ingredients provide brightening (“whitening”) effects and hydration.
Ingredients: Niacinamide is very close to the top of the list, providing the brightening effects. Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract is also pretty high on the list. I looked it up and it’s essentially acai extract which provides antioxidant power. Arbutin helps with brightening as well and charcoal is near the bottom for purification.
The fit: The sheet was drenched in thick serum, making it a little heavy on my face. (I recommend lying down if possible.) The sheet wasn’t overly thick, but thicker than the Etude House mask. There didn’t seem to be much wiggle room in the form of slits for me to adjust the mask, but I found that it actually fit very well without having to adjust a ton. Although you can see a few wrinkles around my mouth and cheeks, this was one of my favorite fits.
The smell: The smell wasn’t over powering. It smelled clean and fresh… not at all like charcoal, thankfully.
Rating: This mask has become one of my favorites. In fact, I’ve since ordered a whole stash of these masks which is funny because I’m not really known to be super loyal to one brand or type of sheet mask. Immediately after taking the mask off, my skin was plump and glowing. The next day my skin was still fresh and bright. Some acne flare ups had also been calmed. I’m a convert! I give the Mediheal WHP Charcoal Mineral mask 4.5 pomegranates. One of my have-to-haves.
