Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

V is for Vita




Mediheal Vita Lightbeam Essential Mask Ex

This is a super thin cotton sheet mask that was saturated with plenty of serum and had a perfumy kind of scent - it's not the strongest scented mask I've used but it was obnoxious enough to give me a slight headache. The fit was ok – too long at the chin and just a little too wide at the temples. It adhered well and was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. There was a bit of tackiness after removing but absorbed in 10 minutes. My face looked brighter, felt hydrated, soft and smooth and had a nice glow.

I really loved the results from this mask but because of the scent I wouldn't repurchase.



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Boo @Shosh85! I don't recall it having a strong scent but I swear these masks change on me. That's why I always love having a 2nd or 3rd look to see if my feelings match up. At least the results were good. Sorry about your headache. I'm sure the next mask you will use has to be better.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  It's funny you mention that, because for some reason I don't remember it being that strong the last time I used it - of course that was back when I wasn't saving my notes, so my memory could be off. 🤔 Great results though, so at least it wasn't all bad! 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Uhhhhh @Shosh85 I can't stand a strong perfume scent on a sheet mask 😩 so sorry

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  I can tolerate a strong fruity scent, more than a strong floral or perfumy scent! Im happy the results were great though! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Same here!! @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh no! That's a shame about the scent, @Shosh85. I hope your headache didn't last too long. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thanks, @quspork, it was fine, just needed

a couple Advil. A strong/perfumy scent is always a bummer, but at least I got good results out of it! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85  Darn sorry the scent wasn’t great. I hate when they give me a headache!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather  Heavily scented masks are just not for me! It's a bummer though, because the results were really great! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I agree that the results are good with this one. I’m so sorry m the scent was overwhelming for you @Shosh85. A headache is not something you want from your masking session. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  I do have another one of these, so I might just wait to use it when my allergies are acting up and my nose is stuffy 😉 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh wow a headache inducing mask is NOT relaxing, @Shosh85 😂 Reminds me of the Poppleton series...


 definitely not relaxing!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Oh my goodness, haha! I haven't seen this book before, but I'll definitely have to check it out now 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It’s great for younger kids, @Shosh85, and I didn’t mind reading them over and over again bc they were funny. There was a story where one character found sailing relaxing and the main one was terrified by the unknown sights/sounds of the sea. To one, it was completely relaxing, while the other kept shouting, “Not relaxing! Definitely not relaxing!” 

Reminds me of masking. To one, a mask is soothing and to another, definitely not soothing 😂

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

V is for Vitamasques 


This mask I traded in the motm box. It was a light pink sheet with extra bubbly clear serum that smelled really good. A mix of floral and sweet fruit. The fit on this one was excellent, just a bit long under the chin, but it fit like a glove, a second skin for sure. Alcohol is high on the ingredients, but I made sure to use a hydrating toner and hyaluronic acid before applying the mask. Wear time was only 10 minutes, after removing my skin felt nicely hydrated and moisturized. I really enjoyed this mask despite the alcohol, but probably not seek it out,,, if I seen it again in a motm box I would grab it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh no, yet another way to judge masks @lmaster - liked it, wouldn't buy it, but would grab it out of a motm - nice! 🤣

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Lol 😂 absolutely!! @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That one sounds fairly nice, @lmaster! I can get behind a floral, sweet fruit scent. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork it was a very light scent too, extremely enjoyable experience

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  This one sounds amazing!!
