Mediheal Dress Code Mask Violet Review:
Admittedly, I did buy this mask due to its pretty masquerade design. Gimmicky, but it totally works in piquing the interests of potential customers. There are a few variations, but I ended up choosing this specifically as I usually prefer moisturizing, hydrating and/or soothing sheet masks over others. So, does this mask actually stand out besides its entertaining design?

Now, as the mask is chock full of pretty neat extracts, I can’t possibly fit everything in (without dying of exhaustion), so I’ll just highlight the noted ingredients mentioned in the product claims above.
Sodium Hyaluronate: Hydrating; a humectant which (ideally) draws H2O from the surroundings into the skin.
Hydrolyzed Collagen: Enhances the appearance of dry or damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness.
Panthenol: Also known as pro-vitamin B5. Used primarily as a humectant as it has the ability to attract and retain moisture.
Trehalose: Is a type of sugar found in plants, fungi and invertebrate animals. Functions as a hydrator due to its water-binding abilities, and also works as an antioxidant.
Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract: Also known as acai berry extract. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins A, B, C, and E. Hence, provides anti-aging benefits while also assisting in healing damaged skin cells and restoring moisture.
Punica Granatum Fruit Extract: Also known as pomegranate extract. Naturally contains high levels of vitamin C and antioxidants which help prevent cell damage. Also assists in repairing sun damaged and aging skin.
Morus Alba Fruit Extract: Also known as mulberry extract. Rich in antioxidants, and also contains resveratrol which protects the skin from harmful UV rays.
How to use:
1. After cleansing and toning, apply the mask.
2. Leave on for 10-20 minutes.
3. Remove the mask and pat in the leftover essence for absorption.
*Recommended to use 2-3 times a week for 4 weeks considering the skin’s average turnover rate.

Mediheal Dress Code Mask Violet Review:
Okay, so the design on this packaging and the sheet mask itself still makes me happy just from the photos because it is very much entertaining (that, and I just enjoy the idea of masquerade parties to this day). In terms of the mask material, I found it relatively thin and that it clung well to my skin.
The masquerade designs are inked in, so it just feels like a regular sheet mask. It fit my facial contours decently, but as always, too short for the forehead area (a problem I’m used to with most masks). However, it did keep slipping down my eyelid area so that was a bit of a discomfort.
Wearing it at the maximum recommended time of 20 minutes, I did notice the scent to be on the mild-moderate side. For some reason, it reminded me of the scent of oregano – basically a “spicy”/herbal scent. I wasn’t bothered by it too much, but it’s definitely not my favorite scent.
During wear, it felt soothing at first, but at one point, I did notice some slight ‘burning’ sensations. Not enough to hurt, but it just felt weird and a bit alarming… first, it was at the non-inked areas, but then I felt some “tickles” at the inked area at the top of my eyebrow. Kind of weird.
Taking the mask off, my face did look a shade or two brighter, which was a nice surprise (because I wasn’t expecting much, to be honest). Skin also felt more hydrated and plumped with moisture where prior to masking, it was quite dehydrated.
Patting in the remaining essence (as there was a lot of leftover in the sachet after use), I did notice the essence being on the thinner side. However it is not drippy at all and absorbs well into the skin.
But, well, as much as I wanted to like it, the weird sensations I experience during the masking session came back to haunt me the next day in the form of small pimples near my eyebrow area – the exact same area I felt “tickles” at.
So, that’s… sad. Also, just a note that the effects of hydration/brightening I experienced right after taking off the mask did not last overnight at all.
Hence, I would probably rate this a 2.5/5. I was initially going to rate it a decent 3, but I just feel that docking a half mark due to the odd sensations during masking and the appearance of the small pimples the next day was well deserved. However, as always, YMMV!
