Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Anastasiya13   Oh my goodness thatโ€™s adorable!!!  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@heartsmyface  Thank you. Feels nice on the skin too, and such a cute print.

Coscodi Sparkling Wine Sheet Mask

This is a thin and meshy cotton sheet mask that was saturated with plenty of serum but there wasn't any extra in the pouch. It had a light and sort of sweet green grape scent. The fit was great and was only a little too long at the chin/jawline. I kept it on for about a half hour. There was some tackiness after removing but absorbed in about 10 minutes. My face looked a little brighter and my skin felt refreshed, soft and moisturized.

Even though this was about two months expired it turned out great! Haha! I'd definitely repurchase ๐Ÿ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Expiration dates are just a suggestion ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sounds very nice @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  Haha! Exactly ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜‰ I thought I was done with all my 2020 masks, but this one was hiding! 

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

This one sounds nice, @Shosh85! Even post-try-me date;)I found one recently that expired earlier this year and it worked just fine, too. Good reminder to go through and double check for any lingering 2020โ€™sโ˜บ๏ธ

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

@eshoe  I have all my masks organized by year (and alphabetized within each year) and I had already gone through all my 2020 masks, but this one had slipped under neath the drawer I was keeping them in. I'll definitely need to purchase a fresher one soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

Thatโ€™s a great idea for organizing them, @Shosh85. I might need to go through mine again, to weed out any lingering 2020 masks. Thanks for sharing your organization technique:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 Ooooh.  I like the name of this mask.  ๐Ÿ˜€

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@tjffc  The name got my attention too and so did the refreshing-looking packaging! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85  Sounds like a great mask!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather  It was wonderful! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 I LOVED that mask!   Two months expired is probably alright in most cases.  I get a little hesitant around the four month mark.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@heartsmyface Glad to hear you loved it too! I always hate to waste a mask if I don't have too - and I figured it was a good sign that it smelled great when I opened it ๐Ÿ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 the light grape scent and niacinamide is a winner all around!! Expired and all ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It really was a nice one, @lmaster! I was somewhat worried I'd smell something rancid, so I was pleased it was a yummy grape scent ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hitting D and W is the Dr. Jart Water Replenishment Mask. 

 

Possibly the only Dr. Jart mask I can even consider using anymoreโ€”and even this one irritates me a bit. :(Possibly the only Dr. Jart mask I can even consider using anymoreโ€”and even this one irritates me a bit. ๐Ÿ˜ž

Notes: 

Spoiler

Claims: Replenishes moisture barrier; soothes and hydrates skin. 

 

Ingredients: Matricaria flower water at 2nd place is good! Witch hazel at 7th place is not. Collagen, ehโ€ฆ juryโ€™s still out on that. But hyaluronic acid, cactus flower, panthenol, and olive are sure bets. What really impresses me about this list is the absence of yucky essential oils Dr. Jart often puts in their masks. Added fragrance is present, but at least itโ€™s in last place. 

Spoiler

Water, Chamomillia Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Water, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glycerin, PEG-32, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Glycereth-26, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Cereus Grandiflorus (Cactus) Flower Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Extract, Panthenol, Polyphosphorylcholine Glycol Acrylate, Arginine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance 

Performance: This stiff, medium-thick, cotton sheet was covered with nearly all the clear gel serum. All the holes fit fine, but there was enough bunching along the sides to make me cut a narrow wedge out of each side of the mask, between temple and jaw, and then pull the sheet together for a much smoother fit. The philtrum was slightly too tall but I didnโ€™t cut it shorter. 

 

This mask smelled like baby powder. Not annoying to me or strong enough to induce sneezing or headaches, but very present. Around the 10 minute mark, I started to feel pre-burn tingling on various parts of my face. I stuck it out for another 5 minutes before removing the sheet. It was so juicy, I couldโ€™ve gone a full 45 or more minutes with this mask if I wasnโ€™t worried about irritation. But nope, I only did a full 15 minutes and then spent 3 minutes massaging and pressing residual serum into my skin. I had no tack or pilling afterward. 

 

Results: Well hydrated and mildly dewy skin. My face wasnโ€™t as plumped up as itโ€™s been after some other hydrating masks, but it did feel hydrated and a bit moisturized. This mask didnโ€™t do much for my redness; eh, chamomile usually doesnโ€™t. Unfortunately, it also didnโ€™t soothe other irritation: I still felt a little tingling, especially anywhere Iโ€™d applied my 9% BHA spot treatment. To calm that down and moisturize my skin, I patted 2 drops of Herbivore Emerald CBD Oil on my whole face. 

 

Had this mask contained chamomile flower extract instead of water, and omitted witch hazel, it wouldโ€™ve caused less or no irritation. Since thatโ€™s not the case, this mask is a pass for me. I donโ€™t see this mask on Dr. Jartโ€™s site, so I assume theyโ€™ve discontinued it. I wouldnโ€™t buy it again even if it was still available. I have too many better hydrating masks that donโ€™t irritate my face. 

 

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

Hmmmm I didnโ€™t know cactus flower is such a promising ingredient, @WinglessOne. Iโ€™m going to have to keep my eyes out for that one. Thank you for the tip;)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  Darn why must they use irritating ingredients 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  I haven't been a big fan of the masks from this brand and there's only 2 that I'd repurchase if I saw TJ Maxx. If it's being discontinued, I guess it's a good thing you don't love it ๐Ÿ˜‰
