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

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface Sold! Does this come through Prime? We are doing our annual family pictures for the kids' birthday and this would be great to prep. Off to Google now.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica @Not this one specifically.  I couldn’t find this one at all online but they did have a few varieties available through prime.  πŸ™‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That's what I found too @heartsmyface. Now to sift through reviews. πŸ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface, you’ll have to let us know the results of your research. The pic of the back side of this V-Lifting mask gave me a good chuckle - I never knew there was an ideal face line! πŸ˜† Good to know these call for an hour or two of wear time. I’ve only used these types of masks a few times and have only kept them on for 10-20 minutes. Now I know that is not enough time to get my face line to the ideal place. πŸ˜‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi   I know in Korea the ideal is heart shaped petit and soft.  It’s a big deal.   Not so much here that I know of...
The two hours is important with compression so they lymph nodes have time to drain but not to allow a lot of fluid to come back and sit and collect.  The results are temporary but noticeable.

I have a fabric compression band that acts the same way as these sticker masks which you’re supposed to wear overnight.  It’s a little uncomfortable but maybe I’m just not desperate enough for results yet.  


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ahhh, that makes sense @heartsmyface! I dunno if I have 2 hours in me to give to a mask like this, but I will try for an hour the next time I use one, though I'm not sure I can muster through if it's too uncomfortable. But I shall try. For science, and for you! πŸ’–

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I don’t know why I can’t seem to add more photos to my post but this gave me a giggle.  I always want to be a special person Today’s Cosme.   Always!  




Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This is what makes Google translate so special, @heartsmyface πŸ˜„

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

 Haha! I love finding things like this! @heartsmyface, I'm 100% positive you're a special person whether or not you use this πŸ˜‰
So happy to hear you've been loving this one! It sounds wonderful! πŸ˜ƒ


P.S - What does the second thing you underlined say? I'm having trouble zooming in 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85   You say that now AFTER I used the mask!  It works!!    πŸ˜†

Yeah sorry about that.  The photos are clear on my phone but burry here unless you click on them.   It says β€˜we recommend that you talk’.   I am uncertain if they truly recommend this to get the lymph nodes drained or if something was lost in translation.  Either way, I made a point to talk to my cat cause the instructions said so.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Haha, don't we all, @heartsmyface? I'm glad to see you're getting decent results from these!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

L is for Lapcos




Lapcos Milk Feel Exfoliating & Cleansing Pad

This is a cotton pad that is saturated with a slightly thick milky essence. The scent was like a combination of milk and rubbing alcohol- but it was light enough that it didn't bother me. I stuck my fingers into its convenient pouch and lightly rubbed it all around my face. It foamed up a little and there was just the very slightest bit of graininess that didn't feel abrasive at all. It didn't take much rubbing before the essence started balling up/getting chunkier (which was supposedly part dead skin cells), and I rinsed with lukewarm water. My face felt refreshed and clean and was SOO soft and smooth!


I really loved this and the alcohol in it is the only thing keeping me from buying a box. I would definitely repurchase, but it couldn't be something that I could use regularly.


Lapcos Aloe Soothing Sheet Mask

This is a thin meshy sheet mask that was fully saturated with a thick gel serum. It had light and refreshing scent that was like a combination of aloe and cucumber. The fit was a little big and was too wide and long at the chin. The adherence was great and it was comfortable and cooling to wear. I removed it after about a half hour and my face instantly felt soothed and refreshed. There was quite a bit of tackiness that stuck around for about a half hour. My face was lightly moisturized, hydrated and had a nice glow.

I really loved this one, and it's the perfect mask to use after being out in the sun. I love that it has cica in it, and I find it kinda funny that cica is listed higher in the ingredients list than aloe. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ I will definitely repurchase this one!



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Milk and rubbing alcohol, @Shosh85? Not sure about that one. My first thought was curdled milk and I would most definitely not want that on my skin. The aloe one is so enjoyable, though! Looks you you might be working through your Costco stash πŸ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  I have to admit, the Milk Feel pad did have an odd consistency! I wouldn't say it was exactly like curdled milk, but I could see how some people wouldn't like it πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚


Yup, this was actually the last of the Costco pack! I also found a 10 pack of Honey at Burlington Coat Factory that I'm still working on - which is fine, since that is my favorite one from the brand so far! Next I'd like to try some of the new ones; Cica, Escargot, Ceramide and Propolis are the ones I'm most interested in. I'd really like to compare the Cica mask with the Aloe one (since the Aloe mask had cica higher in the ingredients than actual aloe) and I'd also like to compare the Propolis mask with the Honey one! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sounds like a nice masking session, @Shosh85. The aloe one sounds so soothing!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  A lot of the masks from this line seems to have floral/perfumy scents, so I was happy this one was so good! Definitely refreshing! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85   This looks like a nice combo for a moisturizing pamper session.  
i feel that way about the Curel Natural Aqua Gel.  I love how it makes my in feel but the heavy alcohol content makes it only an occasional treatment.  All things in moderation:D 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface  Exactly. Moderation is key πŸ˜‰ I would definitely repurchase and use again, but the alcohol certainly keeps me from going crazy and buying a bunch! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That sounds like a great combination!! @Shosh85 minus the alcohol πŸ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  It really was a great combo! The Aloe mask was a good way to balance out the alcohol πŸ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I've wondered about both of these Lapcos masks @Shosh85. So happy to hear that these were great for your skin! πŸ’– Love the results you got from the Milk Feel - soft and smooth skin is great any time of the year but especially as the weather starts to cool.
