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.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica I'm not familiar with them, I'll have to keep an eye out for more.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Glad this one worked out well for you, @Samtian!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Samtian  Glad this one was a winner!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather Thank you!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It's nice when you find a mask you end up loving @Samtian๐Ÿ˜€ This one sounds fabulous just by the looks of that ingredients list!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Thanks, I agree!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Samtian I know I liked a kina mask I used before, wish I could find more

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster @Samtian   The mask is available at masksheets (dot) com - a single mask for $1 and a box of 10 for $10. The e-commerce retailer is legit; I've ordered numerous times from them; errr... when I'm not on a "sheet mask no buy", of course.  ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Ooh I'm heading to that site now, thanks!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Go, go, go @Samtian. I hope youโ€™re able to pick up some. There $1 masks get picked up pretty quickly.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi I wasn't able to find it. But I saw some that looked really cool. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ohhhh ohhhh @itsfi looks like I'll have to check it out

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

You can definitely lose a few hours on masksheets, @lmaster ๐Ÿ˜‚ Iโ€™ve ordered from them too, been very pleased:) @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Haha!! @eshoe ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, have fun, hon! ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Samtian  Glad to hear this worked out so well for you despite it expiring! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘
Just curious, do you recall what it smelled like? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 my notes say it had a light floral scent and my grade was an A- if that helps.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 I don't recall a smell. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Last night I used the Shangpree Marine Jewel Hydrating Mask. 

 

I almost wish the sheet was this sleeve's deep blue violet color instead of white.I almost wish the sheet was this sleeve's deep blue violet color instead of white.

Notes:

Claims: Softens and deeply hydrates skin. 

 

Ingredients: If there are mermaids living on land and walking among us, they probably use this mask. Itโ€™s full of sea water, 5 algae extracts, pearl, oyster, chitosan, sodium DNA (thatโ€™s DNA extracted from a part of salmon that's a BIC bad wordโ€”because I guess standard medical/biological terminology is bad ๐Ÿ™„โ€”and treated with sodium hydroxide) and sea whip (a good anti-inflammatory extract taken from corals)โ€”all to make mermaids ashore feel at home again. Plus, the 4 types of hyaluronic acid should hydrate their skin, which probably dries out easily when theyโ€™re out of the sea. 

 

I wonder if the oyster extract is from the meat or shell of oysters. Thatโ€™s an investigation spiral for later. ๐Ÿ˜„

Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Beta-Glucan, Sea Water, BHT, Propanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans, Benzyl Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Ecklonia Cava Extract, Hizikia Fusiforme Extract, Algae Extract, Oyster Extract, Chitosan, Pearl Extract, Spirulina Platensis Extract, Plankton Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium DNA, Sea Whip Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Raspberry Ketone, Caprylyl Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Hydroxyacetophenone, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sodium Hyaluronate, Trideceth-10, Allantoin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrance 

Performance: This very thin sheet had a blue mesh backing that made unfolding easier. Once unfolded, I removed the mesh and found it loaded with serum, so I re-folded the mesh and pressed/patted it onto my neck. Then I applied the sheet to my face. It fit me very well: large enough eyeholes with inner corner notches, perfect overall length, all the holes lined up with my facial features, and nearly all my jaw was covered. 

 

This mask had a fresh warm floral scent and felt moderately cooling on my face. I thought the persistent fragrance would eventually grate my sinuses or trigger a headache, but it wasnโ€™t quite strong enough for that, thank goodness. Still, this isnโ€™t a mask Iโ€™d recommend to folks for whom floral scents are migraine or headache triggers. 

 

I wore the sheet for 35 minutes. It was still fairly wet, so I squeezed 1/4 handful of serum from it and applied that to my chest. I spent 2-3 minutes massage-pressing all residual serum into my skin. I had no pilling and moderate tack. 

 

Results: Bright and well hydrated skin. Fine lines were mostly plumped away, but a few stubbornly remained visible. My face looked calmer, which a bit of redness still visible around my nose and some new acne. My skin felt a bit moisturized as well, but I still applied my usual YTTP Superfood Moisturizer to lock in hydration. This morning, my skin still felt and looked hydrated and calm. 

 

I have 2 more varieties of Shangpreeโ€™s Marine Jewel mask line. All 3 of these masks share many ingredients, so itโ€™ll be interesting to see if they affect my skin differently. Meanwhile, this Hydrating variety isโ€ฆ hmmโ€ฆ a 90-91 point pinot noir, or maybe a cru beaujolais. You know, beaujolais doesnโ€™t get as much respect as it deserves, especially when you get into the โ€œvillages" and โ€œcru" classifications. There are some wonderful red (and white) wines in those categories, especially the crus which are the most structured beaujolais wines you can get. Theyโ€™re usually drinkable young, but aging a cru beaujolais for up to 10 years (or longer) can get you a dang good pinot noir dupe for less money. ANYway, those wines are generally lush and tasty and very easy to over-drink, and thatโ€™s what this mask reminds me of for some reason. 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

As always I love you wine comparison @WinglessOne. The packaging is beautiful and the mask sounds good to me!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  Iโ€™m sure if mermaids did walk with us they would totally use that mask! I love the packaging and Iโ€™m glad it was hydrating!!
