Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Exactly @lmaster, always good to have a few on hand! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85, I agree with you about it being a good filler mask. In general, the masks in this particular Yadah line seem well suited for daily masking, especially if you can find them in a box of 10 at TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners. I've used the snail version for daily masking for a week and was pleased with the results, which makes me curious how many different flavors are in this line - I doubt there's enough for a different flavor per day for a month, but I wonder if there's enough different varieties that you could use 2 or 3 in a month. Hmmm....

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Yeah, I agree, these masks would be great daily masks! I've thought about using the snail/collagen one consecutively, but I feel like I'd get too bored, even just for a week ๐Ÿ˜‚ - but alternating the different flavors is a great idea!
I *think* there's 6 different varieties, and I've tried all but the lime/brightening one. I'm pretty sure the snail is my favorite ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ˜‰


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 I think I saw what looked like a seaweed one in @lmaster's empties. From the packaging it looked like the same line but I could be wrong.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I didn't like the scent on this one at all lol @ShortErica @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  oh yeah, I remember that one! It didn't show up in the group images online. So that puts the total to 7! Could definitely do a week of Yadah @itsfi! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

We'll see @Shosh85. A week with a variety of masks is doable. Maybe I'll do it in the fall or winter. I don't typically use sheet masks in the summer as often as I do in the cooler months, mainly because of my skin's temperment. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I believe I have some of these! Must use down my stash. @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@l8totheparty  I accidentally loaded the picture of the Mediheal mask that I'm doing tomorrow - today was Yadah ๐Ÿ˜‚ Which mask is it that you have?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Haha the Mediheal! Although I do believe I have a few of the Yadah that were gifted to me as well! ๐Ÿ˜Š @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 Always a bummer when it doesn't adhere very well, at least the results were decent!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Kim888  Yeah, "decent" and "filler mask" are definitely words I use to describe this one. ๐Ÿคทโ€

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

I did my own challenge for March to use up a bunch of Creme Shop Masks.  I have confirmed that the brand has such a wide array of fits, serums, and such that I certainly ended up liking some way more than others.  After looking at how many I used in March, I'm going to continue with Creme Shop as my theme for April and then see where I am at the end of that.  I'll be honest here, a lot of these are older and were purchased in 2019 from TJ Maxx, Winners etc.  Those dang large packs for 5$ and under hooked me! 37 sheet masks used this month and I did double mask each day (normally use a wash off before I shower and then a sheet mask after.  Some days I ended up triple masking by adding in a sheet mask in the evening.  Top down from ones I enjoyed to ones that were less than stellar. 





An Elfs Workshop Resveratrol Anti-Age & Plump -- This was my favourite of the bunch.  A bit longer in the chin and forehead but the material was such that I could easily just fold it, no cutting needed.  This is also one that is more suited to my extra dry (and fine... mature) skin these days.  There was a good amount of serum in the packet and I used the extra to cover my decollate and arms.  I recognize that they likely wouldn't come out with this again, but it's a good one and one that I'd re-purchase should I happen upon them.
A Snowman's Story Hyaluronic Acid Moisturize & Glow -- My second favourite of the bunch, same longer fit, easy to fold material, and extra serum as the Resveratrol.  This one didn't feel as moisturizing, but may have been more hydrating.  Again, I'd buy more if I came across them.
NICE Forever Young mask -- Another good one, a little less serum in the pouch than the ones above, but the sheet itself was still saturated, with the slightly thicker serum.  This one felt a little soothing on the skin with only a very very light floral scent to it that
dissipated after I had it on.  
NAUGHTY Energy Boost mask -- same fit as the NICE mask, maybe a bit more soothing and moisturizing.  Was perfect after a couple hours at work in a cotton mask.  Would buy again. 
Vitamin C infused mask - This mask was okay fit wise, however it had much less serum in the pouch and so the mask itself was much drier and didn't stay stuck to my face nearly 10 minutes.  I ended up using this, and all the others with the little fruits on the packages as 'quick' masks since they all had less serum in them.  Good for a quick something something before doing the rest of my skincare, but not nearly as nice as the ones above for soothing my dry skin and helping to nourish it back to health. 
Peach Infused mask - It did have a nice light peachy scent to it if you stuck your nose right up to the mask, but same as the Vitamin C, it was only a quick wear time before it started piping off my chin area.
Watermelon Infused -- Can join the party with Peach, super light scent, but nothing to write home about.
Pineapple Infused -- Same as the Vitamin C, Watermelon and Peach.  Meh, no harm, no foul, but I wouldn't buy from this line again.  Nothing noticeable to help my skin, but nothing aggravating either.
Dear Diary Peppermint Acne & Oil Control -- Okay, I'm not the target consumer here, lets get that out of the way.  I could use a bit of acne control at times (If I'm wearing a cotton non-medical mask more I'm finding small breakouts along my jaw line), but oil control.... I'd need oil to control.  This also had a super strong peppermint scent to it that I could feel in my eyes.  I used them, but they didn't stay on long as I was fearful they'd dry out any oil production that I did have.  These could be great for someone who was super oily, but this gal is gonna say no.  Side note... is peppermint oil okay for your skin?  I feel like that may be a no and it could be super sensitizing?  Same fit/serum as the others in this line.
Rose Infused -- Same fit and serum as the others in the line, but with a light rose scent, I'm not into rose/floral scents so this one ranked lower than the others in the line. 
Santa's List Charcoal Detox and Renew - Same fit/serum as the others in the line but again, not for my skin type.  There was peppermint oil in this one as well, though not as strong as the Deer Diary.  This was also a black material in lieu of the white of the others in the line.  
Clean Up, Skin Koala infused with Detoxifying Charcoal - This one is .... meh.  It's not a formula type made for my skin so I pretty much saw it as a fun selfie moment.  At least this one didn't have any peppermint in it.  The sheet material on most of these animal masks seems to be a bit harder to have it lay against my skin well so it only stays on for about 15 minutes before it starts to dry out and start to lift at the chin.  I wouldn't buy these again, but I could see them being nice for a girls night/teenagers who want the Instagram photo.  This falls into the just not for me category. 


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

Wow!!! I'm impressed with your dedication to the brand ๐Ÿ˜‰ @missjeanie I agree, some are definitely more stand out than others

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

Well the purchasing happened over a few years, so many so cheep at TJ's and Winners kept me wanting to try them all @lmaster .  When I saw how many I had just from them it was eye opening.  It's actually been easier to just put a handful of them out on my bathroom counter and only pick from them, feels more like working through them than being excited for a masking session, but I'm trying to do all the 'meh' masks first hopefully leaving myself with 'fun' ones by the end of the year. 

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

I'm using that same technique @missjeanie I'm grabbing a bunch that will fit theme and close to expiring and laying them on my bathroom counter, makes it so much easier ๐Ÿ™Œ

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

Glad to know I'm not the only one @lmaster !

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

@missjeanie  Dang! Nice work! I have tried all of these and I would totally agree on the ranking ๐Ÿ˜‰ I definitely know how hard it is to resist a box of masks from TJ Maxx ๐Ÿ˜†

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

The temptation is so real at TJ's @Shosh85 !  I can't actually get to mine right now and it's totally saved me from becoming a totally ridiculous mask hoarder lol

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

Holy cow, @missjeanie!  You managed to go through a lot of masks ๐Ÿ™‚

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

It's been a very conscious effort this year for sure @CookieGirl1
