We love trying out new beauty products as much as the next person, but there’s something to be said for products that stand the test of time, especially in a world constantly inundated with new launches. Haul: It’s a place to share products whose excellence has earned a permanent place in our lives, rather than just for a moment.
My best friend and I talk about how there are things we enjoy more in theory than in practice. Her example: Take a boat. For me it’s a sheet mask. I love those ideas, but I rarely sit with a cold dripping cloth over my face for 20 minutes.
But when the weather changes, you haven’t slept well, and your face looks like a dry prune, only Mediheal’s NMF Intense Hydrating Masque will instantly soothe dry, dull skin.
Developed by a team of top dermatologists and estheticians, Mediheal is Korea’s #1 sheet mask brand for years due to its efficacy, relatively affordable prices, and wide range of products for different skin concerns. It is a title that has been firmly held for a long time.
I’ve tried everything from foaming detox masks to acupressure masks, and they’re all good, but the NMF Intense Hydrating Mask has been an all-time favorite for me.
Each mask contains ingredients such as sodium hyaluronate, aloe vera, witch hazel and mushroom extract to soothe and replenish dry skin. Also, the ultra-fine he is made from 100% cotton for extra softness and breathability. I also found that it fits my face better than other masks and that it actually adheres to my skin instead of sliding off the moment I start moving.
In that regard, there’s a cool feature about Mediheal masks that’s often overlooked. Each mask has a logo pressed onto the surface that makes it more noticeable when worn (usually around 15-20 minutes). This indicates that it is time to remove the mask. This is important. Because, contrary to my mom’s belief, you need to keep the mask on as long as possible to soak up all the benefits. Drying out your skin actually pulls moisture out of it and can set you back at the drawing board. So (mom) get rid of them on time. Then you will be golden.
I have used these masks for years. Whether it’s when you’re traveling, at the change of seasons, after doing any kind of laser treatment or exfoliating facial, when you wake up with a puffy face, or when you need a quick boost before an event. , and always leaves my skin soft and soothed.
