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

@Cissy63  Oh my! I don't think I knew that was a type of dish. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@PrettyPaint  I am from an Italian American family. Christmas Eve is really a big deal.  And a dinner with 7 types of fish is important to some families.  Those snails trying to escape from that pot, were one of the fishes.  ๐ŸŒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

What a cute little snail on the front of the Factory mask, @PrettyPaint! Both sounds like they gave your skin some well-deserved love โค๏ธ 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe  They were so nice, and very much needed!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This will not come as a surprise, but Iโ€™m a little biased here as I think an E for escargot theme is perfectly fitting for the letter of the week @PrettyPaint. Loooove it! โ™ฅ๏ธ The Bisutang mask claims to be cleansing and moisturizing. I did a translation and snail mucin extract is included in the INCI list, albeit near the end. ๐ŸŒ Great to hear these snail masks work out for you!

 

Speaking of snail mucin, I heard on the news that thereโ€™s some place, relatively close to me, that has a โ€œspa treatmentโ€ with snails. Ummmmโ€ฆ. I love me my snail mucin / extract products but I dunno if thatโ€™s something I would do. Gonna have to research that a whole lot more, but my knee jerk reaction was โ€œI think snail mucin and I get along better from a distance.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  Thank you again for sharing these with me. 

 

I have definitely not heard of a snail spa! If you research it some more, I'd be curious to hear what you learn. They couldn't possibly have snails walking around on your face, could they? I don't think I could handle that. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

From last week I didnโ€™t have any opposite masks.  So I chose this Rice Facial Sheet Mask from Dermal. 

It was a good mask.  The sheet was thin but held a lot of milky thin serum.  There wasnโ€™t any extra in the pouch

 

Rice it says, โ€œ is known to glow skinโ€, โ€œintensively cares it clear and softens texture โ€œ .

 

The fit wasnโ€™t bad.  There were several separations along the edges to make a better fit.  The eyes needed a bit of added separation.   It didnโ€™t slide around .  It stayed secure for the 20 minutes I left it on.

 

 I had no skin issues during or after my use.

 

There was some tackiness left , but it absorbed within a few minutes.   

Afterwards my skin was soft and felt smooth.  Into the next day it still felt soft and smooth. I donโ€™t think I could say it was glowing.  But I was pleased with it and would repurchase.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Cissy63 I bet this one was great!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster  Yes, I did like it.  I would buy it again! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Cissy63 sheet masks that give some genuine 'glow' are far and few between. Thankfully the hydration factor was there! And it looks like your session fits right in - D for Dermal! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe  Thank you ๐Ÿ˜€

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Cissy63, I like rice based skincare products. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Theyโ€™re good to my skin. Glad to hear this one worked well for you. Dermal has done some rebranding and I think they have more lines of sheet mask, like this Superfood series. I donโ€™t recall whether Iโ€™ve tried the rice one but others Iโ€™ve tried from the line have been good. Will be interested to hear if you have a favorite among the collection.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi   Oh well the oatmeal and blueberry masks during breakfast week were from the line and I enjoyed both of them.  I have a few more to try too. Broccoli anyone!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Dang it, lost my post, so hereโ€™s an abridged, grumpy version! 

Needed some TLC today because (a) itโ€™s Complexion focus on the Makeup Challenge of the Week and (b) Iโ€™ve been neglecting my skincare and itโ€™s starting to catch up with me.

 

I checked this thread for the theme and looked at my mask shelf and landed on May Lindstromโ€™s The Clean Dirt: D for Dirt and opposites of Clean/Dirt. It fizzes up in the bowl and has a warm, spicy scent. Itโ€™s gritty and dried on the face. I applied on with the back of the spoon and then let it sit and used the grit for exfoliating when I rinsed off. I followed with a hydrating skin routine and will let it breathe for a bit before any makeup. Also used the Grande Cosmetics GrandePOUT Plumping Lip Mask .

From ML Website: An energizing blend of cleansing clays, warming spices, and restorative salts lifts impurities while a surge of H20-activated Vitamin C encourages cellular rejuvenation and undeniable luminosity. 

Our original powder-to-mousse cult favorite transforms and refines the skinโ€™s appearance and functionality through impressively-effective exfoliation. This stimulating treatment reduces congestion, discoloration, and post-acne marks, leaving you velvety smooth and gorgeously radiant.

 

Okay, well now Iโ€™m grumpier because my pics wonโ€™t post! ๐Ÿ˜ž

 

 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Oh wow, @sister13 - that May Windstorm mask sound extremely intriguing. Not just the warm, spicy scent, but the powder to mousse aspect. Time to head over to the Detox Market to see if it is available to test out. Thank you for the review!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@sister13 Ooh the dirt mask sounds amazing minus the Vit C!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@sister13  What did you think about it?  Itโ€™s sounds different.  Oh a warm spicy scent sounds wonderful.  

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

How do you like the ML mask? The description sounds interesting @sister13 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I really like it! I forgot about combining it with Mayโ€™s The Honey Mud, which honestly has the best scent (to me) of any skincare product Iโ€™ve ever used! The Clean Dirt starts out as a dry, grainy powder and you mix it with water. It foams up into a mousse texture. It tingles a little and has some chemical exfoliation, (I think) but also physical exfoliation when you rinse off and massage in. This one is a bit lighter than The Problem Solver, which you generally want to apply when youโ€™re planning to shower, because that oneโ€™s a bit more challenging to remove and easier and less messy Iโ€™m the shower. ML recommends to apply to face and then when you rinse off, to massage neck and chest too. Overall, all of her products have incredible, unique and relaxing/uplifting scents! @lmaster @Cissy63 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Thank you for the info!! @sister13 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@sister13, it frustrating when you lose your post! Grrr! ๐Ÿ˜– Oh, May Lindstrom! Beautiful skincare. I have a sample of the Dirt mask  somewhereโ€ฆ the warm spicy scent sounds interesting.
