Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

No but I’ve thought about it, @Shosh85! It’s too big for my mini fridge, I did try😄 it seems like a masks that just needs to be chilled, though-I am going to do that for next time.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

The gel mask sounds interesting @eshoe you say you feel your skin is tightened,, do you think it's drying at all?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

No, I don’t think it’s drying my skin, @lmaster. it doesn’t feel that way once it’s removed. I just find it unusual when gel or cream masks that aren’t detox masks dry and tighten in the skin. I might be applying too thin of a layer, will note that for next time!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Good to know! Thanks @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Now I gotta ask what your favorite cica mask is @eshoe or ones you would repurchase 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I wish I had a list to go off of, @ShortErica 😞 however, most Cica masks I have tried have been good; this was probably the most ill-fitting of all. I am going to start using a physical journal to track my mask notes next month, for one year. Curious to see how that will pan out!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

The Huxley mask sounds nice, @eshoe. I've found that I need to rinse most wash off masks somewhere in the 10 to 15 minute time frame anyway, so the eventual drying probably wouldn't be too much of a deal breaker for me. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

If you don’t mind fragrance either, @quspork @it’s a nice mask to have on hand for when you don’t want to have to think about masking/what you’re putting on your skin. Enzyme and peels kind of stress me out, this kind of mask I can just forget about.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This week themes d for detoskin and it's a bubbly mask


This was a black sheet that fit really good, scent was nutty and there is witch hazel, but this is a wash off mask so I wasn't too concerned. It started bubbling pretty quick and the bubbles stayed out of my eyes, however close to the 15 minute mark, some decided to pop on my lips and yuk did it taste gross 😆 I went ahead and removed it at that point and washed my face with the good ol makeup eraser, and I have to say my skin felt very soft and clean and did look brighter, however about 5 minutes after my skin started to feel stripped uughhh so for that reason alone I wouldn't seek this one out again

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh bummer about the stripping @lmaster. I don't recall feeling that way with bubble masks but it happens to me a lot with foaming cleansers. Why do they make me just a little too clean?! At least you can focus on buying better masks than this one! 😁

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica yep some foaming cleansers are too drying for me too

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Too bad about the stripping, @lmaster. I've unfortunately felt that with the couple of bubble masks that I've tried as well. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I will admit @quspork I didn't think that would happen 😩 I had high hopes

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  Too bad this one stripped your skin! A lot of bubble masks do that to me. Tasting it doesn't sound delightful either! 🤢

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I was so hopeful too @Shosh85 after I felt how soft my skin was,, then it turned extremely dry 😭 why oh why

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh goodness, stripped skin is definitely NOT what I want from a sheet mask, @lmaster! Bummer because the scent sounds really interesting.


I am having trouble responding to tags, but I read your reply and the Biossance rose mask is no longer here, I just noticed that! I see it still on the brand's site, but it makes me a little concerned. Hopefully it won't be discontinued anytime soon.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe that's my luck,,, it'll get discontinued 😭😩

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

W is for Watermelon 🍉 




A'pieu Watermelon Icing Sweet Bar Sheet Mask

This is a super thin and transparent cotton sheet mask that was soaking with serum and had a yummy watermelon scent. It didn't smell like fresh watermelon, more like a sweet/candy type of scent - pretty comparable to the GR Watermelon Mask. It had a good fit - just a little big around the forehead and the mouth and eye holes were a little too small. I took it off after about a half hour. When I removed it there was still some slightly tacky serum on my face, but it absorbed fairly fast. My face looked less dull and slightly brighter, my skin felt soft and smooth and stayed hydrated for quite sometime. Even though I'd prefer the sodium hyaluronate to be higher up in the list, I really enjoyed it and would definitely repurchase! 🙌🍉



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I love the packaging on these masks @Shosh85! So refreshing and fun! There's a lot of great ingredients in this one, too! I've been really impressed with A'Pieu's mask line up. So happy this one is repurchase-worthy! 🍉♥️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  I agree, both the packaging and the masks themselves are pretty great! There's not one mask from this line I don't like!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 this line is great! So glad you enjoy it too
