Review: PureDerm Skin Solutions 'Myung-an' Brightening Korean Herb Mask

Lately my skin has been feeling a little dehydrated and taut. Looking through the different skin products I've hoarded over time, I came across the PureDerm Skin Solutions 'Myung-an' Brightening Korean Herb Mask for Dry Skin. I had purchased this a few months ago on a whim, seeing as it was very inexpensive. If I remember correctly, this mask was being sold for 2-3 $ at Walmart. There was a nice selection of Korean sheet masks aimed at helping various skin problems. I chose the one for dry skin.

I tried this mask on after taking my shower last night. You must first cleanse and dry your face, after which you wear the mask for 15-20 minutes. The mask fit my face perfectly. The only thing was the holes for the eyes could have been a little wider, but it wasn't that big of a deal. This sheet mask was very moist with the serum, and even after the 20 minutes it still was very wet. So much so that I decided to wring it out and see what would happen. So much serum came out! I massaged as much as I could onto my face, neck and hands. As I was massaging it into my skin, I could tell right away that my skin was way more plump than it had been before. My skin just felt really hydrated and healthy. 

I was a little nervous though while using this though, because this mask tingled my skin just a tad. It was kind of the feeling you get that lets you know you're going to have an allergic reaction to something. Thankfully, I didn't get any allergic reaction whatsoever, and that tingly sensation went away about 20 minutes after I had taken off the mask. I guess this was just the sensation of the Korean herbs at work? I don't know, haha. After the mask, I just applied my usual skin cream and went to sleep.

Super inexpensive (under 3$ for one mask)
Doesn't irritate my skin or cause an allergic reaction
Hydrates the skin, and plumps it up!

Results don't last very long (less than 24 hours)
Holes for eyes needed to be a bit wider (had to be very careful not to get any serum in my eyes because of this)

I will be honest, I was thinking that I probably wasn't going to like this mask. It was cheap, and the reviews online weren't that great. I was happily surprised, and would definitely repurchase this mask, as well as try the other masks made by PureDerm. I would recommend to use this mask a few hours before a big event, when you want to make sure your skin looks extra bright and healthy. However, you should for sure try it out before a big event, just to make sure your skin doesn't react badly to it. My skin is very sensitive, and I was fine, but it's better to be safe than sorry.


  1. the packaging looks so cute! It's been awhile since my last Purederm mask, maybe I should give this a try.
