About Me Medi Answer Collagen Lift Up Band Review

May 24, 2019

Hi guys, today I'll be sharing my review of About Me's Medi Answer Collagen Lift Up Band.


If you didn't already know, Stylekorean is a K-beauty shopping website that offers international shipping, 100% authentic products, free samples and a return/refund policy. Stylekorean constantly curates new products on their website and they sent a few items for me to try out before they launched them on the site!


One of the things they sent over for me to try out was this set containing About Me's star products!

About Me is the Samyang group's beauty brand (yes, that Samyang), and their philosophy is “Different Ingredients, Different Results”. They've been around for almost 100 years now since being founded in 1924. 

The PR box it came in was uber pretty + looked really chic:


Inside the box were two products: the Medi Answer Collagen Lift Up Band and the Medi Answer Collagen Firming Up Mask. There was also this little protractor tool for me to measure how much my skin has been lifted.


These two products use the technological know-how of Samyang BioPharm, and Samyang BioPharm is renowned in the life science and bioindustry field for its effective lifting effects that can be delivered efficiently deep into the skin layer.


In this post, I'll be sharing my review and experience using the Medi Answer Collagen Lift Up Band!


WHAT IS IT
About Me's Medi Answer Collagen Lift Up Band is a lifting product that lifts both the inner and outer skin of the face, effectively giving a more defined face shape. It uses a new type of lifting band that adheres perfectly on the skin and provides 6 different lifting effects just with one use.


Once applied, it fills the inner skin with collagen, and this collagen is delivered deep into skin via the TDS technology I mentioned above.


WHERE TO BUY
This product is available on Stylekorean for USD34.65. There are 4 pieces of bands per box.



PACKAGING
The product comes in a silver box with easy instructions + info in Korean:


Here's the back:


The bands are individually wrapped:


Overall the packaging is nice and secure:



INGREDIENTS
This product uses Samyang's TDS technology to deliver ingredients into the skin. Transdermal Delivery System is a patented technology that delivers active ingredients through the skin transdermally.



The ingredients are all pretty clean:


This product is paraben-free, sulfate-free, alcohol-free, silicone-free and EU allergen-free. The main ingredient in these bands is the 29,600ppm of hydrolyzed collagen, and hydrolyzed collagen helps promote skin elasticity, giving it a youthful texture.

Aside from collage, it contains Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) which is good for brightening and anti-aging, as well as several moisturizing ingredients good for those with dry skin (Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Evening Primrose Oil)


FRAGRANCE & TEXTURE
There is no fragrance at all, and here's what the bands look like:


They attach pretty well onto the skin, considering they don't have any holes. Although it's super stretchy, it maintains its original shape:



HOW TO USE
1. Apply daily skincare after washing face and remove the band's film
2. Stick band to skin
3. Hold band along the chin line and jaw line and stick it
4. Remove after 15-20 minutes, finish with skincare


The packaging mentions to not apply it on bare skin, not wear it overnight/over 20 minutes + to not reuse it.


MY REVIEW & VERDICT
I've used 3 of the 4 bands included, and I find them to be pretty...useless for me hahaha. I think it may be because my jawline is pretty sharp already, but I did not see any extra lifted effect. Similar to the Avajar one I tried before, this one made my jaw/chin area feel tight and snatched, but after a few hours, I felt normal again.


After applying the band, I did notice that the skin/area the band stuck on to was pretty soft and smooth.


WILL I REPURCHASE?
I think this product is good for quick fixes like for photoshoots/etc., but that for someone of my age (early 20s), it doesn't show much visible results. If you're someone who's more mature, maybe you can give this a go. It might help. As for me, I don't think I will be repurchasing this.


Aaaand that's it for this post! I hope you found it informative/helpful. See you in my next post!
