Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Ooooh, love the color! 💜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Love eggplant!! @itsfi wonderful theme as usual!! Great creativity and presentation

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @lmaster! 🤗 Eggplant is great - I didn’t care for it all as a kid but have really grown to like it as an adult. The cream mud mask is a good find too. 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Love the purplelish theme! I’ve been wanting to purchase the gummy bear but I’m still working on my Apple lime and am trying to not horde so much. @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart, not hoarding is a good thing. 👍🏼 Laneige puts out different flavors with some frequency; love that they give a lot of product but with these balms, I’m happy when they have mini’s. 😉 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The Papa Recipe mud mask sounds like such a nice one, @itsfi. It's always nice to find a mud mask that isn't overly drying. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes @quspork! 100% agree. I’m happy to see more and more non-drying mud masks coming into the market. 😍

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi   The gummy bear flavour is oos right now but I am stalking it and hoping it’s not TOO limited edition.  
Honestly I forgot I owned the Milk lip treatment!  😇Pulling it out to put into rotation.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface, the MILK lip mask is such a good one. 👍🏼 I often wish Laneige would make mini sizes of their lip sleeping masks and lip balms. Makes it easier to try all the flavors, especially the LE ones. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi   That would make such a good gift set!   Minis of all their flavours!  
I pulled the lip mask out and used it last night.  Sooo good.  I’m just going to keep it on the nightstand since drier skin season is upon us . 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge



Thought a gold foil mask was pretty on theme for GLAM.




Pooooooor. Surprisingly short forehead. Waaay to long in the chin. Didn't adhere well and kept shifting as I laid down. Blah. Was a bit itchy.


Not really present. Watery and thin, not a ton on the mask or in packet.


Hydrating. Which is mild at best. I put on my Kate Somerville Retinol Kate Somerville +Retinol Vita C Power Serum before, and my skin felt extra smooth after, so I feel like the foil but worked well to really seal in that serum.


Nothing standout. A lot of perfume mid way through which was definitely obvious, unfortunately.

Sorry for the terrible photo, taking a picture of this packaging was hard.

Wear Time:

15 minutes, I left on closer to 20-25. It was drying a bit toward the edges, but I wrung some serum onto my neck and arms.

Overall Grade:

C-/D. It wasn't a good mask at all.



Bonus mask: Oh, isn't that cute, it's a polar bear (Ours!! 🐻🧸🐻🧸, en français)


Thats it. Its a cute mask that doesn't irritate. I've used a few varieties of these Masque Bar masks, and aside from wanting to try a few for cuteness, I think these are great for like a slumber party for the like my nerves *neices* or something (f-ing autocorrect).

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv  I wasn't a big fan of the Sephora mask either, but I haven't really liked any of the masks from this line. Glad the cute bear could make up for it! I agree, these masks are definitely perfect for parties or party favors! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, @Shosh85, both of these were a bit disappointing, but thats okay, they didn't outright cause any negative side effects. I tried the silver SC mask too and it also wasn't good.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Seems like no gold stars for the Golden mask. Sorry it was so bad @haleyvvvv. You make a cute bear and I'm sure your nieces would be too!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you, @ShortErica!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv Awe cuteness!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you, @Samtian!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, those SC foils just aren't great, unfortunately, @haleyvvvv. My experience with them was very similar to yours. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Seems like a pretty common reaction, unfortunately, @quspork. I hope they'll think about a reformulation going forward. I also tried the silver one and it wasn't good.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv I have to agree with you on the SC foil masks, they are pretty, but pretty mediocre unfortunately,, super cute animal mask!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, it was disappointing, @lmaster. I think id tried the silver one too and it was similarly bad. Maybe they'll reformat a "clean" version that works better. Thank you!!
