I am always down for an extra step in my mask. Especially with this one from Meg. I received this being apart of the second generation of Cupidrop’s Beautiful Pioneer Program in return for my honest opinion. (They also sent me some CosRx holiday stickers that I love too much to put on anything yet) Meg. Cosmetics is not a well known brand at all. Actually I had to do some digging myself to pull up some background on the brand.
Meg. Cosmetics is a ‘k-beauty’ New York based company. What I get from that is Americans using korean formulations and manufacturing (the mask is made in Korea). The name Meg was chosen because of it being a common american name. They also use the same high end nail formulation that brands like Chanel and Dior use.
This mask set is really awesome though. For $6USD you get a AHA peeling swab, or this jumbo Q-Tip soaked in Lactic Acid, a more gentle exfoliating acid, as well as BHA (pore care), Chamomile and Centella (soothing). You swab this over your face removing any unwanted dead skin buildup, debris, dirt, etc. & pave way for a perfect masking session; maximizing absorption. There’s a little bit of sting but no more than any other AHA swab i’ve tried. It came pretty saturated as well, but with no excess essence for ‘double dipping’
The jelly mask itself is where the magic is. Containing A.M.F or Artificial Moisturizing Factors (a patented moisturizing factor said to be superior to Natural factors N.M.Fs) this helps skin retain moisture for up to a whopping 120hrs. Also you’ll find natural extracts such as jasmine for soothing and damask rose for soothing and hydrating. It has a soft fragrance accompanied but a subtle metallic scent? Maybe it was the packing, who knows. My favorite part of this mask is the adhesion! It wasn’t a problem for my facial hair and I felt like the essence absorbed better than many sheet masks i’ve used.
Overall I give this sheet mask a 9/10 I just wish I could keep this on hand, but at $6 it’s not a mask I would do frequently.
& Thanks again to Cupidrop for the chance to share this mask!
