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

@itsfi  This kit sounds amazing!!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather, this set was a fantastic way to sample the wash off masks from the brand. It’ll be a shame if it’s eventually discontinued. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Oh darn why are they discontinuing it

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Whoops, sorry @ather, I don’t know for certain if they are, but I’m not finding these masks on sites where I’ve seen them in the past. 😔 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Oh oops. I read it wrong! Hopefully they don’t. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Great masking @itsfi ! The Purifying and the Nourishing Masks are calling me ! Where did you find these little treasures? 🥰 ( I now know that I can use bee venom, I tried a sample of the Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence ❤️ )

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@keana1, I’ve found these mask pods online at SkinStore in the past, but it doesn’t look like they have these masks anymore, even though they still stock the brand and its sheet masks. I see that you can get them directly through WEI Beauty but they don’t seem to ship to Canada. Grrr! 😖 Hmmmm... I wonder if they are discontinuing, reformulating or repackaging these pods. 🤔 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I looked at the Skinstore website and I didn’t find the masks @itsfi . It’s too bad, I won’t be able to try some of them ! I didn’t take a peak on the WEI website but I’ll take your word ! Thanks for letting me know! You’re such a wonderful friend Fi ! 💋

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Good to know about the purifying mask and the sensitivity, I also have this mask to use and that'll be good to keep in mind. Thank you for the insight, @itsfi!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv, I hope the mask works well for you. 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Sounds like a decent multi masking set! I'd have to agree with the others, the bee venom mask sounds the most intriguing! I've only used one bee venom mask before and my skin did fine, but like you, I'd get a little nervous each time I used a different product with that ingredient. 🐝

 I love the tip to use oil with exfoliating masks that are too abrasive- I'll definitely need to remember that!
I'm glad to hear the purifying mask worked out better after adding a hydrating mist and shorter wear time! I'm sorry if I missed it, but do these masks have any discernible scents to them?

P.S: no need to apologize for a long post! I really appreciate how detailed and thorough you are! I always look forward to reading your posts/reviews! 😊

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85, so sorry I forgot to answer your question. Oof!! 🤦🏻‍♀️ All these masks are unscented.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That tip from @keana1 about the oil works so well @Shosh85. Awww; thank you @Shosh85. You’re very kind! 🤗  I debated over one long-ish post with spoilers or four posts of about each mask. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Re: lovely pic @itsfi

Thank you @sonnydee! 🤗 Masking, taking photos, beauty talk and hauls ... BIC has it all for me. 😉 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I’m with @lmaster@itsfi - the Bee Venom mask sounds like a keeper!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It feels quite luxe going on @eshoe @lmaster.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi and the bee venom is sold 😆 I have to have it

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh @lmaster, it felt so nice applying that particular mask. I don’t know if it was because it has been such a loooooong time since I’ve had a professional facial, but it felt so soothing and calming. ♥️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi oh I know!! It's been toooo long for me as well 😩

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Posting a couple while the posting is good 😉



Some quick notes; the Lip Bubble Choosy was a total bubbling lip goodness from @heartsmyface (a pack of five which has brought some laughs over the past year🥰) 

The Peach Slices Travel mask, while not my favorite, is still soothing and relaxing. The fit was off, but the overall relaxation was nice.

The re:p Real Calming Mask is a very pleasant mask that does not obliterate the senses. The Farmstay Real Peach Essence has a peach scent I will seek out again, both are loves and easy mask choices for the tired soul.
