Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase.

 ugh I just wrote out my reviews and it just reloaded when i added the photos.  

nomakura hello kitty infrared eye patches- sticker type patches that claim to increase circulation and decrease puffiness by draining the sinuses.  There was a four minute delay before I felt a warming sensation.  I didn’t notice any real depuffing but my under eyes feel moist and look plump.  Oh the instructions say to apply toner before sticking them on cause the stickers are strong.  I didn’t do that and they still came off easily.  I won’t reuse them ‘up to six times’ like they say you can.  I’m too much of a germaphobe.

Etude house demask rose mask- sheer cotton mask dripping in thin heavily scented rose serum.   It confirmed well and was very cooling.  My skin feels happy and plumped up and a little tacky.

purederm shiny and soft foot peeling mask- smells heavily of alcohol.  The booties fit my feet well.  There isn’t a whole lot of acidic serum like the babyfoot ones have but my feet still feel well coated.  It will take 7-10 days to see the final results so tbc. 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I can't wait to hear how the Purederm foot masks go, @heartsmyface. It's always interesting to see how different ones work out. How long did you have this pair on for?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork   I did the whole 90 minutes and maybe a bit longer?  My feet are feeling pretty dry today which is a good sign.  The waiting part is the worst.  I want instant gratification 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I’m with you on reusing masks @heartsmyface! I tried the Charlotte Tilbury sheet mask that says it can be reused up to 3 times and it was hard enough getting myself to use it a second time for the sake of trying it out. 😫 I would go nuts 6 times!!! It is interesting though that the eye patch would presumably heat up all 6 times. I don’t know about that. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 

 

I like the EH 0.2mm line. 💕 They’re ones I consider simple (in a good way), reliable sheet masks and there are a few from the collection that my skin responds well to. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi   Did the CT one perform as nicely the second time round?  The eye patches are still sitting on my night table so there’s still a chance to reuse them... I’m a little curious.  Maybe I’ll try them out on my arm to see if they reheat.  My elbows would likely appreciate done love.  
The ET Collagen masks are my favorite from the line!   I agree they’re slightly better than filler masks but at filler mask prices.  They’re a pretty solid brand overall.  I am trying to recall if I ever used a dud product by them and nothing is coming to mind.  I didn’t like their micellar water but then I don’t like micellar waters in general.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Last night I used the Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin™ Facial Barrier Mask Ceramidin™ Facial Mask It was drenched in a thicker serum. It worked decently well, I think if I had done my normal skin care routine with it instead of my lazy one it would have been even better.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  I can literally see how moisturizing that mask is! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  This is a nice one! Glad it turned out great, even when doing your lazy routine 😂 I think we all know how that is 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Thank you! Haha yeah most my masking days seem to fall on those days too lol.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian, ahhhh, Dr. Jart ceramidin sheet mask! Such a great mask. Just my own opinion, but I love the idea of having both a regular skincare routine and a "lazy" one. Or, as I sometimes tell myself a "super efficient" one. Hahaha! 🤣

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi   That’s a good spin on it!  Using that!  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface @Samtian, it just feels better to have a “super efficient” routine in the mix, because let’s face it, life happens and sometimes we can’t pamper our mugs like we’d like to or should. I’ve also told myself that my “lazy” routine is a “Back To Basics” routine. 😂 It’s all about perspective. 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi That is a great way to think!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

R is for Rose Quartz 😍 and it looks like @eshoe and I were twinning it again, this time with different rose quartz eye masks. 😆

Some days you just want to feel a little extra. For those days, there's the Sephora Collection Rose Quartz Eye Mask. This beauty has a slight weight to it, but not so much that it feels too much. It's great as an add-on to a weekly facial (which, I need to be better at), or for unwinding after a run/workout, as a luxe prep in the morning to depuff eyes and cheeks, or, for me the last couple of weeks, when I get up in the wee hours of the morning and can't fall back asleep.I keep it on anywhere from 5-10 minutes depending on my mood and how much time I have. I learned of this pretty treat from the lovely @ElizaPRO (thank you for the rec!), who mentioned this eye mask also works well over a sheet mask and I think I'll give that a go in the next couple of weeks. 
 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Ahhh, that’s one of those products that never stays in the cart!  So you think it’s worth the $80? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface, it's $80 CAD? Woah! I wouldn't (and didn't) pay full price for it. I picked it up on sale and used up a balance on a gift card. The one from Sephora is far less expensive than others that I've seen online, but it's still spendy. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Oh, I've wondered about this one! It sounds so nice, and I love the idea of using it over a mask! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, I'm used to doing various things around the house while I have a mask on, but this gives me an opportunity to just lie down and relax. 😀 I think it'll be good over a sheet mask. Will report back soon with my findings!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi thanks for reviewing ! I’m always so curious when I see that!!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888, I wavered back and forth over it a lot. It's not a "must have" but it is a nice treat.
