To Post:

Each week features a different theme, as well as a letter of the alphabet for coming up with new masking ideas. 


Please include the brand and name of the mask you are trying out, as well as a photo if possible. Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase. Don't forget to include a grade (thanks to @ShortErica for the idea) to help others along the way.


Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

Re: RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lindseyyfaye  Glad to hear you're enjoying these! I love the SF Overtime mask too! - It smells soo good!  ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

RE: Re: RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh my goodness does it ever! Also love the smell of the R+R! @Shosh85

Re: RE: Re: RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

The Summer Fridays R + R Mask 2.25 oz/ 64 g is my favorite mask of theirs, @lindseyyfaye - that scent!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I used a bubble mask for the first time last night. It fits the A theme as AAAHH what is it doing to my face?! That was a weird experience haha. I didn't realize it was actually bubbling up until my mom saw it and said I looked like one of those things out of a DC/Marvel movie.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Awww, I love that you gave this a try @Samtian. Iโ€™m not a huge fan of bubble masks so kudos to you for giving it a go. How did the kitties respond to seeing your face foam up?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Ha those b u t t heads didn't even pay attention to me. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ohh my gosh!! Abominable snowman from Disney @Samtian ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster Haha I like that!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Samtian  This one looks so cool!!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather It kinda was haha.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Samtian  Haha! You look awesome! Bubble masks are certainly super entertaining! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 Thank you! I'm going to have to watch them next time I do one.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Love it @Samtian!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica Thanks!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

 @Samtian you look out of this world๐Ÿ˜‚! Bubble masks are so bizarre. Especially the first time you try one. โ€œWhat is happening to my face?โ€ is something I can relate to.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe Haha those were my thoughts! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Continuing my A = Abib theme with Abib Mild Acidic pH Sheet Mask - Honey Fit. I used this one last night. 

 

Again with the unfortunate sticker placement.Again with the unfortunate sticker placement.

Though I love the transparent sleeves, I do have a pet peeve related to them: 

 

Thank goodness all this info's available at Abib's site, otherwise I'd strain my old lady eyes to death.Thank goodness all this info's available at Abib's site, otherwise I'd strain my old lady eyes to death.

Notes:

Claims: Nourishes skin with minerals and vitamins; strengthens skin's immunity; adjusts skinโ€™s pH. Contains 30ml bottle of ampoule. 

 

Ingredients: Unlike the Heartleaf Fit mask, this Honey Fit mask does contain fragrance. Iโ€™m glad itโ€™s almost the last ingredient here. I like seeing turmeric paired with the bee stuff (honey, propolis, and royal jelly), plus 2 forms of neem (melia azadirachta) plant. Thatโ€™s a great anti-bacterial/antimicrobial combo and antioxidant source. 

 

Leucojum aestivum bulb extractโ€™s trade name is IBR-Snowflakeยฎ. Iโ€™ve seen folks claim this stuff rivals Botox as a muscle contraction inhibitor and wrinkle reducer. Thereโ€™s lots of sciency stuff about harnessing the dormant state of the summer snowflake flower bulb and applying it to skin cells to slow cell proliferation and extend cell life, thus slowing agingโ€ฆ eh, yโ€™all can look that up and read about it. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Spoiler

Water, Glycerin, Polyglycerin-3, Butylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Honey Extract, Melia Azadirachta Flower Extract, Aureobasidium Pullulans Ferment, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Ocimum Sanctum Leaf Extract, Althaea Rosea Flower Extract, Propolis Extract, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Extract, Royal Jelly Extract, Corallina Officinalis Extract, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Fruit Extract, Leucojum Aestivum Bulb Extract, Betaine, Hydroxyacetophenone, Choleth-24, Allantoin, Tromethamine, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Panthenol, Dextrin, Maltodextrin, Carbomer, Caffeine, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance( Parfum), Benzyl Benzoate 

Performance: Same medium-thin ALBAM (ALbumin + BAMboo) sheet as the Heartleaf Fit variety, and just as loaded with serum. The scent of honey hit me as soon as I opened the sleeve, and this slightly-gooey runny serum was tinged yellow. It oozed a bit from the chin as soon as Iโ€™d finished smoothing the sheet over my face, but didnโ€™t continue to dripโ€”err, oozeโ€”afterward. This sheet seemed slightly narrower at the jaw than the Heartleaf Fit sheet, and the philtrum was a bit too tall so I trimmed it shorter. I also widened the mouth hole. The sheet fit well everywhere else. The sheet felt soothingly cool on my face and never felt like it would slide right off my face, despite its juiciness. 

 

If you hate the smell of honey, this is not your mask. I didnโ€™t find it aggressive, in fact I enjoyed it, but it was definitely present the whole 35 minutes of wear. After removing the sheet, I massaged/pressed residual serum into my skin for 1-2 minutes. The sheet was still very wet, so I rubbed it on my neck and chest. Then I squeezed a whole handful of serum out of the sheet. Yet another super juicy Abib mask. Once all the serum had soaked into my skin, I had no pilling anywhere. This is a honey mask so, of course, my skin felt sticky. 

 

Results: A beautiful natural glow on moisturized and nicely hydrated skin that felt more hydrated by the minute. Honey usually lets the environment leach moisture from my skin, leaving it dry (which is why I have to space out my use of honey products, and not use them in dry weather). So after most honey masks, I immediately mist my face and apply a moisturizer to seal in hydration. But after this mask, I swear I could feel my skin attract more and more moisture from the airโ€”which is exactly what should happen with a humectant like honey. I did still mist my face, neck, and chest, but didnโ€™t rush to do it. Then I applied a little moisturizer and went to bed. This morning my skin was still very moisturized and hydrated, and my oily zone was in slight overproduction mode. 

 

Iโ€™ve got a box of this mask coming and will wait til the weather chills down to use them. I think this will be a great cold weather mask. Iโ€™ll reserve scoring til then, but for now: I doubt itโ€™ll score as high as the Heartleaf Fit mask, but I did like it enough to order a box today. ๐Ÿ™‚ Itโ€™s in the 90s for sure. 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

A honey mask in the 90s, @WinglessOne??? Sounds wonderful. I know Iโ€™ve picked up this honey mask on multiple occasions so this time that works to my benefit. Ha! I will have to coordinate using it with a complementary wine. ๐Ÿ˜‰
