Medius SOS Water Balm Mask Review

Medius is Korean beauty brand that specializes in sheet masks. Thanks to Lipstick Plz, I had the opportunity to try their SOS Water Balm Masks. They come in 4 variants: Pore Care, Moisture, Soothing and Brightening. I haven't used a lot of Pore Care sheet masks so I picked this one for my review.

Medius SOS Water Balm Pore Care Mask

This sheet mask penetrates moisture into the skin for a more radiant glow.

Key Ingredients:
  • Centella Asiatica - acts as an anti-oxidant and strengthens the skin
  • Peaonia Suffruticosa (Moutan peony) - stimulates skin and brightens complexion
  • Tea Tree Extract - soothes and reduces skin inflammation

Observation: The packaging comes in remarkable colors and has vintage feels. Attached on a mesh is the sheet fabric which is not the thinnest I've experienced but is lightweight and adheres well on my face. The essence has a pleasant fragrance and has a viscous consistency.

It's good because...
  1. the sheet mask provides a visible afterglow.
  2. it yields the kind of moisture I want.
  3. there's a lot of essence inside the pack and more than enough to cover neck, arms and legs.
  4. the mask feels comfortable to wear.

Even better if... none!

Conclusion: Yes, Medius SOS Water Balm Pore Care Mask leaves an annoying sticky residue on the face. But don't wash it off! I top it instead with Aloe Vera Soothing Gel and it does the work. It may not completely matte-fy the face but it will give a nice dewy look without the tackiness all over.

I like the benefits of this sheet mask most especially the radiance it lends. However, those who are oily-type may find its essence too rich for their skin.

You can get this for P150 through Lipstick Plz Shopee.


  1. I'm so curious to try this mask sounds really good.

  2. Love the packaging! Sounds lovely too!

  3. Never knew you could remove the tackiness with aloe soothing gels! Thanks for the tip ☺

  4. You got me curious about those masks!

  5. I sometimes do that! Coz I love aloe gels. Haha My fave is the nature repub one.

    1. I will get that Nature Republic soothing gel soon.

  6. This was the first variant I've tried too and I loved the hydrating power! I'd hoard if I could :))) Thanks fr the review!

  7. I already tried the moisturizing and soothing variant. I find the essence a bit oily though. Parang may slip na di ko ma explain but it does give me a nice glow the next day. 😊

  8. Try mo lagyan ng aloe gel para mag-matte. Hope it'll work.
