MEDIHEAL Placenta Revital Essential Mask EX

Today’s post is on a MEDIHEAL mask that I’ve been looking forward to try the most. This was the sheet mask that started my sheet mask shopping binge last July. I wanted to try a sheet mask from MEDIHEAL and I read a few great reviews about it on Reddit that I had to get it. I ended up getting this and a few others from Stylevana as it wasn’t available on Amazon then. Here’s my thoughts on the MEDIHEAL Placenta Revital Essential Mask EX.

MEDIHEAL Placenta Revital Essential Mask EX

First thoughts? To be honest, “Placenta?! Eww!” but it definitely piqued my interest. Rest easy, this is vegetable placenta. Historically though, placenta in beauty and skincare has not always been from a vegetable source and has been sought after for it’s health benefits. This is the description online: “Premium ingredients, Hydrolyzed Animal Placenta Extract and Hydrolyzed Chitosan energize, nourish, and protect to support the appearance of healthy, glowing skin. Silky cellulose mask fits tightly to the skin, ensuring optimal delivery of essence.” I placed an almost dripping wet sheet mask on my face and kept it on until it was mostly dry to the touch — roughly 40 minutes or so. The cheeks area was still slightly damp when I took it off. I rubbed whatever is left on the sheet mask onto my neck, arms, elbows and feet. My face felt refreshed after use. Like the MEDIHEAL N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule Mask EX, I find that this dries down pretty well and the slight tackiness left over was easy to layer over with my face moisturizer.

Any negatives? I purchased a bunch of these in a sale and I’m hoping I’d see better results with consistent use of this. Right now, although I like it and it’s one of the top 3 sheet masks from this brand for me….it hasn’t secured its spot in my repurchase list from this brand. The results didn’t blow me away or anything.

DERMAL Cucumber Collagen Essence Mask

The mornings are starting to get a bit chilly here now. I have to go through my clothing and start sporting long-sleeved shirts. This makes me start thinking about the holidays too. It’s still too early for Christmas shopping but I’m putting together a list as I don’t like feeling rushed for it in December. As I wrap up this busy month with work, I am still going through my sheet mask stash pretty good. Today’s post is on the DERMAL Cucumber Collagen Essence Mask.

DERMAL Cucumber Collagen Essence Mask

First thoughts? This is one of the 39 sheet masks in a set that I got on Amazon a few months ago. I am actually thinking about getting it on Black Friday or Cyber Monday if the price goes back down close to when I got it on Prime Day. It felt so nice and cooling when I slapped this onto my face. I left it on until it felt mostly dry to the touch. The leftover essence on the used sheet mask was rubbed onto my neck, elbows and the tops of my feet. I was looking for a soothing or calming sheet mask as I have a few breakout bumps here and there on my face that I tend to pick on (don’t pick on your face!!!). The scent is definitely of cucumber and is on the light side. I do notice the scent the entire time I have the sheet mask on. Usually if the scent is on the lighter side, I don’t notice it at all but I did with this one. It doesn’t bother me much but if you’re not a fan of cucumber scents just note that the scent might stay around when you have the sheet mask on. This dries down almost as beautifully as the DERMAL Aloe Collagen Essence Mask. The slightest hint of a tacky feeling is there when I touch my face but that is not a problem at all when I follow up with a face moisturizer and/or sunscreen.

Any negatives? None at all really. While the scent isn’t my favorite, I don’t mind it at all and it’s light. Because of how it dries down, it’s one of my favorites from this brand. I noticed that on their Amazon store page they now have listings for 10 sheet masks of the same kind like for this one here. Very excited about this option as I’m not a fan of all the ones I’ve tried so far and I’m sure there’s more as I keep on testing in the set of 39.

MEDIHEAL N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule Mask EX

I was very excited to try out one of MEDIHEAL’s most popular sheet mask today. I’ve seen this on a log of online blogs and articles that I had to give it a try. I got this sheet mask in a variety set of 20 here on Amazon a few months ago. Here’s what I think of the MEDIHEAL N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule Mask EX.

MEDIHEAL N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule Mask EX

First thoughts? Looking on their website, the version there is REX instead of EX so maybe the one I have is being put out of production for a newer, updated version. This is the description online for the REX version: “N.M.F (Natural Moisturizing Factor), Sodium Hyaluronate, and Witch Hazel Water quench thirsty, dry skin, while Allantoin with Trehalose support a tightening and lifting effect. The Bamboo Cellulose sheet forms a tight fit over the skin to ensure maximum delivery of the essence. As the mask dries, it turns white and contracts, providing a slight tightening effect.” The sheet mask I have is made of a silky cellulose fiber, as stated on the back of the packet. Not sure if it’s bamboo cellulose or not though. I read that this is one of the most moisturizing sheet masks from this brand, leaving faces plump and hydrated. I placed an almost dripping wet sheet mask on my face and kept it on there until it was mostly dry to the touch. The upper lip area dried completely first followed by my chin area then the forehead area. The cheeks area was still damp when I took it off. I rubbed whatever is left on the sheet mask onto my arms and elbows. My face felt hydrated after use. I find that this dries down pretty well and the slight tackiness was easy to layer over with my face moisturizer.

Any negatives? At this point, I have 3 more of these to use up to see if it will definitely be on my repurchase list. It’s a good contender from this brand as it dries down very nicely compared to almost everything I’ve tried so far from them. My face feels plump and looks healthy immediately after use.

DERMAL Royal Jelly Collagen Essence Mask

Ah, Fall is definitely in the air. Aside from occasional cooler temps, all the Fall fan food favorites are out. Costco has a ton of pumpkin pies instead of their standard tres leches and tuxedo cakes in the open fridge section (I don’t know what they’re really called but y’all know what I mean) and of course Starbucks is out with the ever-so-popular PSL. Wanting a little something fun and different, I picked this sheet mask out from the handful that my son chose a month ago or so (he selected about 10 from this set of 39 and we’re down to the last 2 of his picks). Here’s my thoughts on the DERMAL Royal Jelly Collagen Essence Mask.

DERMAL Royal Jelly Collagen Essence Mask

First thoughts? Like one of the more recent sheet masks I’ve tried, the scent of this one stands out to me, so I’ll cover that first. The first thing I thought of is jelly followed by candy. The scent is pretty potent in my opinion but I only get a whiff of it here and there after a minute of slapping the sheet mask onto my face. I don’t find the scent bothersome but if it had lingered and was stronger, I probably wouldn’t have been able to keep it on. The essence in this one is more watery than all the ones I’ve tried from this brand so far. The sheet mask was literally dripping with essence when I took it out of the packet – something I haven’t really experienced from any sheet mask from this brand. Because of that, I was so excited to see how this one dries down after use. I dripped every bit of the essence that I could on the under eye area. It feels very cooling and luxurious on my face. It does feel luxurious but in all honesty the word that came to mind aside from cooling was delicious. :p Part of it is due to the scent, I’m sure. I kept it on until it was dry to the touch and rubbed whatever is leftover on the sheet mask onto my arms, elbows and tops of my feet. Sure enough, it dries down beautifully. No stickiness, no tackiness, nothing at all. I took whatever essence is left in the packet and patted it onto my face before applying my face moisturizer.

Any negatives? If the scent had lingered and had been any stronger, that would definitely land this in the never to repurchase again category. But it didn’t and being that it dried down so beautifully combined with the relaxing sheet masking experience this one brings, it’s a definite repurchase in my book.

MEDIHEAL Vital Firming Mask

It’s Fri-YAY! Writing that just makes me think of our sweet puppy dog that passed away a few months before our son was born. He loved and lived for Fridays. He knew what it meant….late nights hanging out with us, sleeping in on the weekend and just having us around more during the day. Anyway, let’s not dwell much more on that topic as it’s a very sad topic that hurts my heart to this day still. I miss him a lot. Even though the weather has continued to cool slightly every few days, we still get some days that reminds us of summer. I’m looking for a sheet mask to relax with at the end of such a day and this fits the bill. Here’s my take on the MEDIHEAL Vital Firming Mask.

MEDIHEAL Vital Firming Mask

First thoughts? This came in a combo pack on Amazon here for $14.99 but I got it for $9.74 before taxes on Prime Day. It’s a great price for 12 sheet masks if you like them. The sheet mask is on the thin side and looks translucent holding onto the essence from the packet. It could benefit with another cut in the sheet mask on the side of the face for a better fit for everyone. One can adjust it more that way and keep the sheet mask flush to the face. I kept it on until it is dry to the touch – which is over an hour! I had to wait even longer for it to dry down more but it never really did completely to my liking. My face is left feeling not just tacky to the touch but actually sticky. I sealed it off by tapping on my face moisturizer (not rub….I definitely do not want to rub the stickiness around on my face) on and calling it a night. My skin did look hydrated, plump and dewy after use and into the next morning.

Any negatives? Aside from leaving my face sticky, the scent reminds me of some perfume that is familiar but I can’t quite pinpoint which one it is. I do like the scent as a perfume though but not on a sheet mask on my face. While it wasn’t strong enough to prevent me from using it this time, it didn’t enhance my sheet masking experience or add to it like lightly scented ones that I like do. With so many other sheet masks that I like from this brand, I’d be hard-pressed to repurchase this.
