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

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

This is for the theme of Extraordinary Exfoliators

It is Ole Henriksen's PowerBright, which is sadly discontinued. I really, really wanted to try it and dear @itsfi was kind enough to give me this opportunity. However, I do think @olehenriksen needs to bring this back - please, please please! I will make it worth your efforts.

 

So clearly I love it...

 

It comes with three little mask containers to be used in 3 stages: 1) a polish (an exfoliating sugar mask), 2) brighten (Vitamin C concentrate), and 3) glow (a melting cleanser). 

 

Basically you put on the sugar mask and leave it for 10 minutes, massage, and rinse. Next, you apply the vitamin C concentrate and let it dry down a bit (~2 min.). Finally, you add the glow cleanser and blend it on your face. There's a nice, gentle warming sensation. Finally, you wipe it off after 15 minutes. It smells so good and citrusy! 

 

My skin is sensitive, and I didn't experience any irritation. What I did experience, however, were some instant results (heck, yes!). I have never had an actual facial before, but perhaps the results are similar to this? My skin feels so smooth and soft that I seriously keep touching my face, and it has this nice natural/healthy glow.  Why does this good stuff have to get discontinued?

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Omg I totally forgot about these @PrettyPaint ! I remember when they came with like everything! I did really love them! 

The philosophy micro delivery 2 step gives pretty similar results if you’re looking for options! 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint I love that feeling of instant gratification!  Not many masks do that for me so it's always fun to find one that DOES.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint Sounds lovely, I love most of the OleHenriksen products I have tried thus far. This looks like a great mask, such a shame it has been discontinued. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

That sounds sooo luxurious @PrettyPaint and that you really had fun with it 🀩 enjoy the extra smooth skin! And the way you described the smell  I bet it was yummy πŸŠπŸ‹

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Oooh this is a fun conversation.  I love taking the time to use masks, it's soul healing time for me when I make the time for self care and masking is soo relaxing. πŸ₯°

There are so many on here I've never heard of or tried, I'm going to spend some time reading what you guys have tried, love and keep on using! I'm sure I'll see something I'll just need to give a go myself πŸ˜…

 

I'm currently experimenting with a few masks at home,

 

The Stem Cell face mask is a pack that came with 30 sheets, but I received a Jumbo one it has 60 ( I received it with my Dermabeam Pro LED face mask) I love that it came in a large pack rather than single use waste but it is tricky getting them out to use, they've all clumped togeather πŸ˜…

 

My favorite hair mask right now is the Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kindβ„’ Avocado + Kiwi Mega Moisture Superfoods Hair Mask 8.0 oz/ 240 mL  thou I have it in the trial size.  The Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair!β„’ Deep Conditioning Hair Mask is very good but my hair dosent love it as much as the Kiwi Mega Moisture. I also use K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Mini Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask 0.5 oz/ 15 mL **ooops not pictured** when I need it, but that's more treatment than mask but it says mask lol

 

I received the City smart Peel off mask by Elizabeth Arden as a promotion, and i just ran out of my amazing Dr.Jart masks (I love them most of all!) 

My absolute favorite is Dr. Jart+ Cryo Rubberβ„’ Masks 0.14 oz/ 4 g Ampoule + 1.41 oz/ 40 g Rubberβ„’ Mask with Soothing Allanto...  **not pictured**

 

I have 2 test size masks by Youth To The People Mini Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask 0.5 oz/ 15 mL  and Juice Beauty KATE HUDSON loves JUICE BEAUTY Revitalizing Acacia + Rose Powder Mask 1.7 oz/ 50 mL to try at some point

And the 3 glow recipie masks I have right now are fabulous

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial Mask 2.03 oz/ 60 mL 

Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask 2.3 oz/ 70 mL 

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment 2.02 oz / 60 mL  **2nd bottle**

 

The LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Intense Hydration with Vitamin C Grapefruit is so hydrating the little tester I have is almost gone, very awesome product imo

 

Lol, this is me saying hi and can't wait to read up on this thread!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@CynthieLu  Welcome! I haven't tried that particular rubber mask. My experience with them hasn't been that great, so maybe I will need to give that one a try. πŸ™‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Thank you @PrettyPaint Everyone has such different skin πŸ’š mine defintley loves the k-beauty lines for masks. The one I use mostDr. Jart+ Cryo Rubberβ„’ Masks 0.14 oz/ 4 g Ampoule + 1.41 oz/ 40 g Rubberβ„’ Mask with Soothing Allanto... helps calm my red and sensitive skin and I find it just really gentle and plumping, great at adding moisture and my skin is for sure on the dryer side of the fence πŸ˜…

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@CynthieLu Welcome to the thread, I think you're going to love it here πŸ™‚ Some amazing mask choices that you left there. I've been wanting to try the Dr. Jart masks for what feels like forever but I have yet to pick any up. 

 

I'm just starting to try out the GLOW Watermelon Clay mask and so far, I like it a lot πŸ™‚ Looking forward to trying more from them in the future.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Thank you @QueenMarceline I think I will, this thread checks so many of my boxes πŸ˜‹ 

That mask the  Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial Mask 2.03 oz/ 60 mL is sooo gentle for a clay mask, It is really nice. I heard they launched (or are launching soon) a more potent version of thier Watermelon Sleep Mask. I love the original so I'm very curious about this new one.  I'm a fan of GR for sure πŸ˜…

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Welcome @CynthieLu! Ahhh, I spy some fun and fabulous masks! πŸ˜ Those Briogeo masks are great - my hair feels so soft and hydrated after using them. I think I have that Juice Beauty x Kate Hudson mask ... somewhere in that mask bin of mine - good reminder that that is another mask I need to try. Love Laneige lip masks; up until recently, I would pick up every flavor that came out, but I put a pause to that practice for a time to work through my other lip masks / lip balms, but I did pick up the new, limited edition LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Intense Hydration with Vitamin C Mango and have been loving it. 

 

Agree wtih skin care as self care. I don't always treat my skincare routine that way but it really can provide a lovely, nurturing time-out for ourselves. Grab a cup of tea / coffee or other drink of choice, maybe a light snack, sit back and enjoy reading up on masks ... lots of masks! πŸ˜†πŸ’—

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Thank you @itsfi I'm very happy to be here πŸ˜€ I don't often use lip masks but I lucked into a trial size and it is the best! I was using a lip balm by Elizabeth Arden as a lip treatment (when it got wintery and dry) for years and it was good,  BUT  The Laniege lip products blow it completely out of the water, like left it waaay back in the dust. That line is really very hydrating and impressive imo

My Thoughts:

Spoiler
I received this face mask as a part of a Galentine's Day gift from a dear friend of mine but haven't reached for it because single-use satchel face mask packets aren't really my thing. The consistency is a white-colored thicker lotion that is neither fully opaque nor transparent but instead an in-between. When I opened this I didn't really pick up much of the advertised Japanese cherry blossom scent but instead smell was lightweight and resembled that of a generic face mask. I thought the feel of the mask was quite nice it definitely does not measure up to the comfortability of my Eminence mask but that's not necessarily a fair comparison. Overall, I was happy with the consistency and comfort. Unfortunately, I forget what the suggested/recommended wear time on this mask was but I ended up wearing it until it fully dried down, my total wear time was about 20 minutes. When this mask dries down fully it has a tiny bit of flaking, but compared to some other masks I've tried or owned this is very manageable and nothing too distracting to the point where it negativity interferes with the masking experience. I genuinely feel that the mask feels very nice and light-weight on the skin and was pleasantly surprised since I did not expect much going in. After rinsing it off my face, my skin felt hydrated, nice and soft. I must say that the results were nothing life-changing but I don't have any major qualms with this mask either. I'd say this is a nice filler mask if you're into single use satchels (I am not) but other than that, this is certainly not a "must-have" product either. Overall, I'm glad I got to try out this mask and get it out of my stash which is something I have been working on but I won't be repurchasing. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@QueenMarceline  Sounds like a decent filler mask! 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint Could see this being nice for travel or on-the-go use. πŸ™‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@QueenMarceline, the end results - soft, hydrated skin - sounds good. This seems like it might come in handy for traveling, or a nice way to try out the mask before purchasing a larger size (if the mask comes in a larger size). Is there enough product in the packet for more than one use?

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi Personally, I don't think there is any way that one could get more than a single use out of this satchel. Unfortunately πŸ˜•

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Interesting @QueenMarceline- I don’t think 20 minutes before total dry down is a great wear time ! But always good to have a filler mask around 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Kim888 Admittedly, it could have been a touch longer. However this is also a traditional face mask opposed to a sheet mask.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@QueenMarceline  Wasn’t all terrible!!
