Review: Mediheal Mask Dress Code Black

Mediheal Mask Dress Code Black (27 ml)
It's mask day today again for me. Let me introduce u this very cute Mediheal Mask Dress Code Black. 

Overall the mask is pretty and interesting to me. This is the first time I put on mask with print and jewel stones. Besides looking pretty during mask, it makes my skin smooth and hydrated.

Mediheal Mask Dress Code Black Summary
Benefits:
  • Whitening Care
  • Hydrating and brightening.
  • Contain natural ingredients
  • Smooth, radiant and nourish skin. 
  • Patented: Colorful mask sheet does not stain skin with ink. Cellulose sheet allow skin to absorb more essence and minimize irritation. 
  • Jewel Stone attached.
Ingredients.

How to use Mediheal Mask Dress Code Black?
Apply onto cleanse face. Put on the mask and leave it on for 10 - 20 minutes. Peel off after that and pat remaining essence into skin.

My Review
I had done a lot of mask. But this particular one really attract my attention. The mask is stated to look exactly like the one on the mask pack. 
How the pack of mask look like.
The mask sheet is pretty thin but does not tear easily. And I can see that it is covered with lots of essence. 
Lots of essence on the mask.
Ok I really did not read the mask pack properly or do any research before hand. I only know there is very pretty print on the mask like those Masquerade Party Mask. But to my surprise, there are gorgeous jewel stones on the mask as well. :D
How the mask look like.
I thought to myself, this is really ridiculous but surprising. They actually went to the extent of placing solid jewel stones on the mask!!! For the first time, I can't bare to throw it away after use. :P
Jewel Stones attached on the mask.
And this is the first time it kept me so busy taking lots of pretty pictures of myself when the mask is on my face. And a always boring mask turns into something so interesting. Erm....so do I look like I am ready to go party? LOL
Ready to go party!!?? LOL Just joking....:P
The mask stays intact on my face. No dropping or slide off when I move here and there taking pictures. And I must say the essence is enough for me to put on the mask for a long 30 minutes and still wet when I remove it. No drying at all. 
Mask stay well on my skin without drying and dropping.
Results? Well...yes....the mask is pretty and interesting. But the results is really normal. My skin feels smooth and hydrated after used. As for whitening, I really did not see any different. 

Also the eye area, opening which did not cover the area around my eyes means I need an eye mask after that. But its Ok. After all, this is not an eye mask. 
Every corner is well detailed. But too bad eye area is not covered enough.
It does is expensive with its effect. But if you like to have fun with yourself during mask instead of just lying in bed doing nothing, no harm buying it to use them once in a blue moon. Besides you can get discounted and cheaper one at Althea Online Store. ;)

Overall the mask is pretty and interesting to me. This is the first time I put on mask with print and jewel stones. Besides looking pretty during mask, it makes my skin smooth and hydrated.

Where to buy it?
Mediheal Mask Dress Code Black can be bought in Watsons, Sasa and Althea online store.

Event: Sasa Mother's Day High Tea And Makeup Challenge


Happy Mother's Day to all Mothers. 

My mum have a great Mother's Day Celebrating with Sasa SG over High Tea. How is your Mother's Day?

On 10 May 2017, My Mum and I went for an enjoyable Mother's Day Celebration with Sasa SG + Jannassa and Mum over High Tea + Makeup Challenge Workshop held at Fullerton Hotel, Post Bar.
Event is at Post Bar in Fullerton Hotel.
I have always wanted to bring my mum for Tai Tai Type of High Tea but always cannot find one that is cheap and delicious in order not to let my mum worry about my wallet. Thanks to Sasa SG, I am able to fulfill this wish in a High Class Hotel on the house. 

My mum is all dress up and happily enters the beautiful Fullerton Hotel. Off we go for High Tea and makeup workshop. :)
My Mum is all dress beautifully for the event.
This is the first time my mum and I came to Post Bar at Fullerton Hotel. The post bar feels classy and comfortable. 
Beautiful Post Bar.
Once we were there, we were brought to our seats with a customized card saying "To Ivy's Beautiful Mum", a black beauty box worth S$1000 and 2 beautiful flowers on the table. 
Customized card, Beauty Box and flowers.
I have to admit, my attention change immediately from admiring the Post Bar environment to looking at the beauty box on the table. So is my mum. LOL...Well, I will let you all see what is inside later.
All eyes on this Beauty Box.
The celebration starts off with the Makeup Challenge Beauty Workshop. We were told to makeup our mum beautifully using the products given in the beauty box followed by photo taking. Hehehe....I am given the offical approval here to "paint" my mum's face....:p...something she always refused to let me do at home as my mum don't like to makeup. :/

Sasa SG and sponsors are really generous here. The S$1000 beauty box is sure heavy to carry. But it's surely a happy burden to carry home. :D
