Banish thirsty skin and soothe irritation with the Mediheal N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule Mask from Korea. A sheet mask designed to balance a variety of skin types including acne-prone, combination, dry, oily and sensitive, this definitely earns a place in my beauty obsessed heart.
Sure, I’m no stranger to Mediheal sheet masks and when AKOCO sent me their exclusive Launch Box to celebrate the launch of their new K-beauty platform, I couldn’t wait to try this.
Although the main purpose of this sheet mask is to boost the skin’s moisture levels, it also contains an impressive range of anti-ageing ingredients. Adenosine, allantoin, hydrolysed collagen and sodium hyaluronate all encourage supple skin. Beta glucan calms irritation, seals in moisture and protects skin from early signs of ageing.
Willow bark extract contains acne-fighting salicylic acid to soothe skin irritation and there’s also aloe vera and extracts of boswellia serrata to reduce inflamed skin. This sheet mask also contains witch hazel to eliminate symptoms of problematic skin like dryness or rough patches.
Mushroom extracts help encourage a brighter complexion and rosa centifolia flower water hydrates dry skin and soothes facial redness. Perfect for gals with rosacea. This mask also contains amino acids like arginine, alanine, glutamine, glutamic acid and phenylalanine. With known antioxidant properties, these also help skin retain moisture.
Polyglutamic acid (also known as PGA) is another ingredient to highlight. It holds as much as ten times the amount of moisture compared to hyaluronic acid and is commonly found in fermented soybeans (natto). Not only am I huge fan of eating natto but I love it in skin care. This powerful ingredient eliminates dry skin and offers intense hydration. I only wish it was higher up on the ingredients list!
To add a certain special touch, this sheet mask is embossed with the Mediheal logo. Made from an incredibly soft material, it had a delightful second skin fit. I often struggle to find sheet masks that fit smoothly around my square jaw but this fit my face perfectly.
From the moment it was applied, my skin felt refreshed and soothed. After removing it, I was impressed at my bright and clear my complexion. While the redness across my cheeks didn’t completely disappear, the rough texture had gone. My skin was instantly hydrated. Because this sheet mask contains lots of moisturising ingredients, my skin still felt baby soft several hours later.
The remaining essence absorbed into my skin within seconds so I was free to follow up with an eye cream and moisturiser. It’s been a pleasure reviewing the Mediheal N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule mask. For such a great price, I’d definitely stock up in the future!
