I ordered a few facial masks from Hollar.com (surprisingly they do carry a small lineup of Kbeauty products, I was like- whatttt whatchu guys doin’ here). The masks I bought are from Mediheal. I never tried this brand before, though I know it’s a pretty popular one, so I was like let’s see if I have been missing out on anything. They were like 2.25 to 2.50 USD each- typical face mask pricing.
I’m going to jump into a short review of the P.D.F A.C Dressing Ampoule Mask that I used last night. Whoever names Mediheal‘s masks must be obsessed with acronyms, like I get that you like them acronyms but damn gurl.
This mask’s formula is aimed towards acne-prone skin, which I needed because my skin has been breakin’ out the past few months. It’s like a pimple party is getting it on up here.
Here are some better shots of the packaging I took this morning if you like to do duh package reading.
Packaging is sleek and cute ofc (when it comes to Asian skincare when is packaging not cute).
The mask is soaked, like drenched soaked, and there is a mild perfume-y scent to the ampoule. The sheet is on the thicker side of masks and it almost has a gel-like feel to it. The shape of the mask fitted my face nicely and I left it on my face for like 30 to 40-ish minutes, until the mask started loosing it moisture.
After I took off the mask, I patted my face to help absorb the residual ampoule sitting on my skin and that stuff would just not go anywhere. The formula was just slipping and sliding on my face. It felt so heavy, greasy, sticky, and tacky. I tried massaging it into my face for a few more minutes and then, I left it sitting for another few more minutes (in hopes that it will dry or be absorbed into my skin), but no girl no. I ended up wiping it off with a tissue.
It made my hands all tacky and when I took the better/clearer photos of the packaging this morning, the empty package was stillll feelin tacky. Just ugh. Why would you do this to me, Mediheal? What have I ever done to cross you?
After, I wiped the excess sticky ampoule off my face it felt a bit more comfortable. Went to bed and woke up this morning with typical morning skin. I don’t see any difference in my skin from the mask, no improvement but also no …dis-improvements (is this a word? but you kno what I mean).
All in all I would not buy this PDF AC mask again, but I’m still going to try out the other masks that I ordered from Mediheal (crossing my fingers that those won’t be as sticky). For giving no difference to my skin, that nightmare tacky/sticky feeling it gave me was just not worth it. I give this mask a 1 out of 5 stars. #stickyaf
