Margaret Wu is proud to pioneer the ever first ‘Bio-Cellulose Mask’ that is made of a biomedical material, which is usually used as an artificial skin and cardiovascular repair material. Her first introduction to this skin-friendly material was during a visit with a biomedical lab. After further research into the production process of bio-cellulose and testing it on herself, she finally found the miracle answer to her unsatisfactory for cosmetic products for years and proudly launched the world’s first ‘Bio-Cellulose Mask’.
Melasleep Whitening Bio-Cellulose Mask, the hero product under Melasleep Whitening range, has achieved great popularity selling over million units since its launch. This world’s first revolutionary mask is made from the microbial fermentation microorganisms, and is evaluated by the US FDA and earned the recognition of high safety. It is made of the most subtle fiber in the nature with only 20 nanometers in diameter (merely 1/133 of an average non-woven fiber). It holds a great skin-friendly texture with iontophoresis effect and gives serum product a better infiltration efficiency.
This bio-cellulose mask is created with 3 world-renowned pharmaceutical patents and is claimed that one bio-cellulose mask equals the effect of one ‘iontophoresis’ treatment. Which means the serum can penetrate into the skin effectively.
Melasleep Whitening Bio-Cellulose Mask contains two skin-whitening patent formula from the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies – Lumiskin and Melaclear2 . Lumiskin is a key ingredient that is claimed to affect the formation of melanin, and interferes melanin formation by keeping tyrosinase in a non-active state. Melaclear2 contains protease which is claimed to accelerate the process of wearing off spots and removing dead skin cells, rapidly takes the skin to a bright and flawless state.
Matrixyl amino acid anti-wrinkling patent formula are added to the formula to stimulate the skin, activate the fibroblasts in the dermis, release collagen secretion, and improve aging problem caused by sun exposure.
The mask also contains antioxidants such as West Indian cherry extract, Aglycone soy isoflavone and Vitamin E to help combat free radicals.
Unlike other masks that are soaked with transparent fluid gel serum, this unique mask is actually soaked with an opaque white thick hydrating and whitening serum instead.
After slowly unfolding the multi-layered mask, I actually get a little confused on how I should use the mask correctly. The usage directions read :
1. Take the elastic and transparent bio-cellulose mask in the middle.
2. Apply the wet side (the one adhesive to semi-transparent paper foil) on face.
3. Take off the mask after 15-20 minutes. No need to rinse and continue regular skin care procedure.
The ‘wet side’? Both sides are wet actually! Semi-transparent paper foil? You mean the rough sheet? Hmmm……
It actually took me a while to figure out. There are 3 layers in the pack : the translucent bio-cellulose mask is in between a smooth sheet and a slightly rough translucent sheet.
The correct usage is to first remove the translucent rough sheet and spread the mask (where the rough sheet was) on the face before removing the smooth sheet later. I actually made a mistake by removing the smooth sheet first.
Bio-Cellulose Mask is made of a skin-friendly biomedical material, that is usually used as an artificial skin and cardiovascular repair material.
This interesting jelly-like translucent material is smooth, soft and it’s thicker than the usual paper mask.
The mask fitted my face perfectly and my skin feels super comfortable. It is pretty easy to put on and it doesn’t get messy at all, unlike other masks which are usually dripping wet.
As no washing is required, I can proceed my daily skin care regimen after the mask treat.
The mask is designed to cater for the eyes too.
Melasleep Whitening Bio-Cellulose Mask can be reused up to three times within a week. Keep the mask in the pack after use and store in the fridge. Wet it by spraying Melasleep Whitening Treatment Serum or Melasleep Whitening Treatment Awakening Serum before the next mask treat.
I have actually reused the mask 3 days after the first use and thankfully there is no irritation occurred. As it was still pretty wet after the first use, I didn’t require to spray any serum on it at all.
20 minutes after the first application, my skin actually feels hydrated, brighter, and smoother though the dark spots still appear visibly obvious.
Are you keen to try this innovative mask too? Well, here’s a great news! For Beloved One, Taiwan’s top-selling skincare brand, has exclusively launched at Sephora Singapore on end June 2011. For Beloved One will join the ranks of many prestigious beauty brands made available at all of Sephora stores island-wide located at ION Orchard, Great World City, Takashimaya S.C. and Marina Bay Sands.
