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.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ok the leg marinade does not sound appealing, @WinglessOne 😄 But a major bonus that you were able to cross off another item on your to-do list while getting clean. This one is on my list, it's the second time I've seen it here recently, and I do like the Nurse Healing mask (despite a somewhat strong perfumed scent).

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne piling is so annoying 🤐

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  Well it's too bad about the pilling, but otherwise sounds like a wonderful mask! Glad you enjoyed it! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah i think I had the pilling too @WinglessOne it wasn't to bad but I saved this mask after a hot beach day. I never had it happen before so I had to think about what was happening 😁 but I also used the extra goodness. Maybe next time I wouldn't put so much on my face & just use it on the rest of my body. The legs would take up alot. 🤗🏖💙💚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Went with the Sephora Pineapple mask for House Brand week 🍍

Sephora Collection Pineapple Face Mask

This is a super thin cotton sheet mask that was saturated with serum and had a pleasant pineapple scent. The fit was ok - a little too long at the chin, not quite wide enough by the ears and the mouth hole was just slightly too small for my preference. The adherence was good and it was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. There was some light tackiness after removing that only stuck around for a few minutes. My face looked brighter and felt lightly hydrated. I wouldn't say my pores looked any different, but my skin did feel super soft and smooth.

I don't like that all these Sephora masks have fragrance/parfum so I high up in the ingredients, but I did really enjoy this mask and definitely wouldn't hesitate to use again - I just don't think it's worth the $5.50 retail price

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Pineapple!!! 🍍 I love the smell of fresh pineapples but I hear ya @Shosh85 on added fragrance being so high up on the ingredients list. I think there’s a different take on added fragrance in skincare / masks and since Sephora’s parent company is based in France, I can see how added fragrance might be seen through that lens as an added benefit to a product. 

On another note, have you tried the pineapple mask in the new Sephora clean line? Interested in how they compare. I picked one up to try both but just haven’t had the chance to get to it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I think I've decided I'm not buying anymore Sephora masks. I had a couple I was thinking about getting, but really, I've never been too impressed with any of them - the fragrance is the biggest concern, but I also just haven't been too amazed with the results either. I'm just always tempted because I love Sephora 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I guess that is why the holidays are the best time to stock up on the Sephora masks! I share your feelings about the price point. Also good point about the scent. Some are pleasant while others are overly 'clean.'

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Yep, I really only buy the Sephora masks when there's sales. $5.50 per mask is just too much 😬 I'm thinking, unless there's a really good deal, I won't be buying anymore - the ingredient list and results just aren't worth it to me. 🤷🏻

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes so hard to pay $5.50 for just one mask @Shosh85! At least this one sounds enjoyable.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Yep, every time I see a mask that price now, I think to myself, "I could get a box of masks at TJ Maxx for that price" 😬

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Happy you like this version! @Shosh85 I'm noticing some I do like and some I don't lol this one I was in between on

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  I think this may be one of my favorites from the brand so far! I haven't tried too many of the "clean" products, but so far I think I might be liking the originals a wee more. 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I love the original version so much more,,, but I think it all comes back to the sheet itself

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  That's exactly how I feel about the Sephora masks in general: fragrance is too high on the ingredients list, and the masks are enjoyable but overpriced. I don't know what costs Sephora incurs to produce these masks, but I wish they'd drop the price or sell these in a value bundle/box. Still, I'm glad you enjoyed this one! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  Yeah, I usually pick up a couple here and there, but only when there's sales. I can't say I've been too impressed with any of the Sephora masks I've tried - that fragrance half way up just kills me! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

M is for moisturizing

Had to grab this cutie! It's a more flexible sheet from tonymoly fit was a bit long at the forehead and did bunch around the mouth area. Serum smelled like lavender, clear and bubbly with a little extra. Wear time was 20 minutes, most of the serum had absorbed nicely after I removed the sheet. I did feel like my skin felt more hydrated and a bit moisturized. Not super impressive,,, but definitely has the cute factor!! Not a repurchase 🙄IMG_20200929_073717971.jpg

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

How cute are you @lmaster!! And how cute is that mask?!! 😍 Too bad it doesn’t perform as well as it looks. I’ll know what to expect when I reach for mine.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It's cute @itsfi no regrets, but not one I'd seek out

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This mask is adorable @lmaster 🥰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It is @eshoe sucker for the cute packaging!! 🙋
