Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe LOVE those Dr. Jart foot mask!  Is it wrong that I picked up like a dozen when they were being cleared out and maybe have been hoarding them a bit? lol. Might need to do a good foot mask tonight! And the bite lip mask.... ahhhhh sweet sweet memories of my favourite lip masks.  

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Oh my goodness, @missjeanie - that was so smart of you! I went back for more and there were only two - you can bet I scooped those up ๐Ÿ˜„ I was so worried the heating element would be long gone, but nope - just as good as the first time I tried them. Perfect for these chilly winter nights!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe  I'm not a fan of floral, so I've been purposely ignoring and avoiding this mask..... but now I really want to try it! The consistency of it looks wonderful and I'm super happy to hear it's unscented! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Thank you for such a great review!

 

Oh, I really loved that foot mask - probably the best I've ever tried! .... so of course that means they'd discontinue it ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85 the name really throws one off! Knowing how so many of their other products have a noticeable scent, I was very surprised to find it without one. Not sure if the promo is still available, but it was definitely worth it. 

 

Of all the foot masks I have used, this has been my favorite. I feel your pain ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe @Now Iโ€™m wondering if Iโ€™m going crazy because @itsfi also mentioned after smelling it in store it wasnโ€™t scented but I so strongly smell something I canโ€™t put my finger on with the fresh mask! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Oh @Kim888 that is so strange! I just opened it and double-checked. I definitely do not detect anything ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Kim888  Interesting! I was just reading the reviews for this and there are several people who said "it has a pleasant scent." Now I'm super eager to get a sample of it so I can sniff it ๐Ÿค” It's funny how everyone perceives scents differently! 
@eshoe @itsfi 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85 @itsfi I have not read any of the reviews, but now I am curious. I double checked just a few minutes ago and definitely do not notice anything; fruity, floral, cucumber, or otherwise. I will be curious to hear how your DS is when you try it, itsfi.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Hahaha! @Shosh85, I wonder if we read the same review about it having a pleasant scent. I went to the store to do a smell test before picking up the promo because I didn't know if "pleasant" meant siganture Fresh cucumber-ish scent or if it was a floral scent. I was taken aback when I opened the tester jar, which was brand new, and didn't pick up anything. Maybe I'll pick up a scent in the promo jar I have. Wouldn't that be funny?!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  I am so curious to try this one now! I need to track down a sample of this so I can do a sniff-test ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe Wow, that fresh mask looks almost edible... I'm going to have to add that to the long running loves list. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

The lists just donโ€™t ever seem to get any shorter, do they @QueenMarceline? Well, if they do, somehow other options pop up to try! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe Hahah, you're definitely not wrong there. ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I saw this and am suuuuper curious!  I'm wondering if we'll see a promo for the new version soon.  I think I spotted it in the rewards bazar today.  Might need to go double check and place an order.  For science!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

A new promo @missjeanie? I would wholeheartedly second, third, fourth ... that! ๐Ÿ˜ I'm 4 days into my mask no-buy (I know, sooo good, right?!! Hahahaha!) but I could see myself going into a store to purchase a bday gift for friends and perhaps asking for a sample of this new mask, for, as you put it, science. ๐Ÿ˜‚ It's hard to say "no" to science. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi If it was a free promo... then technically you didn't buy it and it's not breaking a no-buy.  I mean... technically and all.  I did go to check and it was not the new mask in the rewards bazaar.  But... They'll have a promo soon right?? Right???

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@missjeanie, I'm down with abiding by technicalities on this one! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Love it! It's also probably the smarter approach to sample the mask first, right? ๐Ÿค” In case my skin reacts poorly to it.

 

I have to think that there would be a promo of it, either at Sephora or Farmacy direct - I went online to the brand site and the current foil sample with purchase is from their greens range. I imagine it's only a matter of time. I've noticed recently that Sephora has had promo gwp codes for some of the newer launches (yaaaay!) and they're coming out closer to the release dates - it would be great if that held true for this new mask. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I'm considering getting a promo to be the responsible thing here.  I mean, a full size is great, but with my current collection size, I can't justify that (I might still have 3/4 of a jar of the original left).  I can however justify checking out the new one to see if I should buy it during a sale.  #fiscallyresponsible

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Absolutely @missjeanie! I like your thinking!!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Based on this info, it sounds promising, @itsfi. I finished a jar recently, so I will be interested to see how the new formula compares @ather
