This is probably the last mask from the brand “Purederm” that I am going to use and review. I haven’t had a great experience with Purederm face masks, so I think its the end of the story with respect to Purederm for me and my New Year resolution in April (well, Telugu New Year started just a week ago :huh: and the Malayalee New Year will start on April 14, 2012), is to think at least one time more before buying any product with “brightening, whitening, mango, yogurt, apple” written on it and not to get carried away with fancy and glossy packaging. :nababana:
Purederm Brightening Korean Herb Mask is a hydrating skin treatment that contains Korean natural herbal extracts such as Acanthopanax Senticosus Root, Cnidium Officinale Root, Rehmannia Glutinosa Root, Sophora Angustifola Root and Japanese White Birch, which are especially good for dry skin. These unique ingredients penetrate into the skin gently and rapidly to keep a brighter and younger skin.
Rs. 80 for one-time use sheet mask.
How To Use:
Thoroughly cleanse and dry skin. Take out and unfold the mask the mask and apply it on your face. Wear the mask for 15 to 20 minutes and peel off slowly from the edges.
My Take on Purederm Myung-an Brightening Korean Herb Mask:
This particular mask is a one-time use sheet mask containing some “unheard of” Korean herb, “Myung-an.” This is supposed to bring on brightening and hydration to dry skin (not again :headbang:). The sheet mask comes securely packed in a pack and the mask is soaking wet with the “herbal” ingredient. It is cut out to fit the shape of a face and I had no problem unfolding the mask and pasting it on to my face. The fragrance of the mask is very subtle, very relaxing. I could close my eyes and go for a quick nap with the mask on. In my opinion, these kind of sheet masks are pretty good to use when you had a tiring day and just want to relax.
After 20 minutes, the mask had completely dried off and it easily came off the face too in one piece. There was not much change that I noticed after using the mask, just a teeny weeny bit of refreshing feeling. I did feel it imparted a bit of hydration because skin did not feel stretchy or dry and remained that way for the entire evening. Brightening wise, nothing happened, not even a bit, but I think using the mask just once would not be enough. However, it is a good idea for weekend pampering.
Its gross, but I had to show you the mask :dance:
So, summing up the pros and cons of this mask:
Pros of Purederm Myung-an Brightening Korean Herb Mask:
- Hydrating mask.
- Does not dry out the skin or make it stretchy.
- You will feel refreshed after using the mask.
- One can relax and take a quick nap with this mask on.
- The fragrance is mild and subtle, soothing.
- The mask comes in a soaking wet form and its quite refreshing to put it on.
- When the mask dries off, it comes in a single piece.
- Price is reasonable.
Cons of Purederm Myung-an Brightening Korean Herb Mask:
- Don’t expect any “brightening” effect, I didn’t see any!
- The moisturizing and hydrating effect lasts only for a short while, probably only a few hours.
Will I Repurchase Purederm Myung-an Brightening Korean Herb Mask Again?
Nope, but I do like this idea of sheet mask. Probably, I can make these type of cut-out masks and dip them in fresh mango juice or something and keep it on my face, ewwwww, but it might get too sticky!
