To Post:

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. Don't forget to include a grade (thanks to @ShortErica for the idea) to help others along the way.


Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@veronika23, thank you, V! ๐Ÿ˜Š I didnโ€™t even consider the concealer could be the culprit until a BIC lovely @danielledanielle posted about a similar result from the concealer. ๐Ÿ˜” So thankful she mentioned it; otherwise, Iโ€™d probably still be reaching for it and making things worse!! ๐Ÿ˜‘ Now I know, and my zit zapper products have been working overtime. ๐Ÿ˜† Good thing about it is that Iโ€™m going through my stash at a faster pace. ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

 @itsfi   Ohhh. It's good someone posted about it then! Hahaha well at least nothing will be going to waste... I've been having a hard time using all my products/doing a full routine... I really need to use up what I have before it goes bad. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ha! Yeah, I've been breezing through my acne fighting products this summer! ๐Ÿ˜† And my hydrating serums and masks too, since I follow up with hydrating products to keep my already dehydrated skin from getting more parched. I guess there's a bright side to breaking out??!! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

 

I hear ya @veronika23! I gave away a box of unopen, full size masks and other products earlier this summer because I knew I wouldn't be able to get to them this year and I'd rather someone get use out of and enjoy them than I have to toss it either having used it a few times or worse, not having used it at all. It's made me more mindful about what I can buy more frequently and what should really only be a purchase if I've used up a comparable product. Lessons learned. Always so many lessons learned. Ha!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Totally understand you with giving away some products. I do that often... though I should have done it more with my makeup I think...  Hahaha yeah... wish we didn't have to learn these lessons the hard way. ๐Ÿ˜‚  @itsfi 

2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Shopped my stash tonight. ๐Ÿค— it's been a while since I've used the bears. Fit?really good. Almost perfect Smell? clean. reminds me of the typical sheet mask scent. not over powering, it was pleasant Consistency?Clear, jelly like but bubbly as well. Soothing & relaxing after a day at the beach Ease of use?only trouble was above the lip strip, had to adjust it 2x during the wear Would I  purchase/try again? yes!!! and i happily have a stash. I wore this about 30 min. it was exactly what my skin needed. Had extra to rub on shoulders & chest. Soaked in with very lil tack. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ–ค

Long time love @sonnydee 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  These Bears sure are a favorite around here! It was so exciting finding them at TJ Maxx/Marshall's! Happy to hear you loved this one! ๐Ÿป

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I was lucky enough to find them more than once @Shosh85 so exciting & money saving! ๐Ÿค‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ah OOZOO bear. ๐Ÿป Always a good one to have hanging around in the stash, @sonnydee!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Definitely will find a permanent place for the bears in my stash @quspork @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee @quspork thatโ€™s a good indicator of how well a mask performs - a permanent place in the stash is high praise.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yaay @sonnydee! The Oozoo bear ๐Ÿป makes another appearance on the thread. Such a great mask! โ™ฅ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

These are such great and easy-to use masks, @sonnydee! I think collectively we picked up quite a few boxes of their stock of this mask last year ๐Ÿ˜„

...it was the summer of 2019. Such a simpler time then. When a younger ShortErica was collecting masks beyond her needs. She wasn't alone in this endeavor. There were maskers around the country grabbing up the goodness of the bears ๐Ÿคฃ

@sonnydee Hooray for Water-Bang! Glad I'm not the only one who keeps a stash of this mask on hand. ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

E is for Etude House and V is for viola mandshurica flower extract (violet extract) 
Sparkly!!Sparkly!!
Etude House Jewel Beam Gel Mask Twinkling Diamond is a clear, thin, 2-piece hydrogel mask with a gauze-like pattern and scattered sparkles throughout. It's infused with a very soft, citrus-floral scented essence-serum that absorbs quickly and easily into the skin. There's extra in the packet to layer beneath or atop the hydrogel or for use on other parts of the body. This is one of the best designed hydrogel masks I've used in terms of fit and adherence. ๐Ÿ‘ This mask claims to hydrate and moisturize the skin and my skin did feel nourished afterwards, with a bounce and fresh-faced look to it. A very lovely mask that I would happily use again. ๐Ÿ˜€ More details in the spoiler. I wasn't able to find the inci list online, so I typed it out - I think I got the spelling right; my spell check sure didn't think so. ๐Ÿคฃ
 
Spoiler
Fit, Wear & Feel
I was surprised that the mask was clear; I was expecting it to be silver. It's a very pretty looking mask and fits beautifully - it's not so thin and delicate that it tears easily, nor is it thick and stiff to make adherence a problem. This really could be a prototype for hydrogel masks. The sparkles do not transfer onto your skin. It's a bit large width-wise for my face, but that's pretty standard for most sheet mask. What is not typical, and I was pleasantly surprised by this - I did not have to make any incisions to the eye or mouth holes. Interestingly, the instructions recommend 20-40 minutes of wear time, which is longer than most masks call for. I can see that this mask might be worn for a longer duration. It feels quite soft, melds nicely to the skin and wears comfortably.  I was able to walk around the house and do a host of things without any concern for it slipping or falling off. 
 
Claims, Notable Ingredients & Results
The mask claims to be hydrating and moisturizing and touts diamond powder, hyaluronic acid and ceramide as its notable ingredients. All of that sounds wonderful to me. Sadly, those notable ingredients appear near the bottom of the ingredients list, after added fragrance, no less. Even so, this is a very nice mask, both in terms of its aesthetics and its functionality. There's the slightest tack to the skin that wears off as all the essence is absorbed. My skin felt nourished and plump after removing the mask. Those with very oily skin might be able to get by with skipping moisturizer after this one, but for my dehydrated-combo skin, I needed at least a light moisturizer or sleeping mask. 
 
Etc.
There are 3 other masks in this line; I have 2 of the other ones and may track down the fourth at some point. This is a nice mask; not one that I'd consider a "must have", but it's definitely one that I would be happy to use and even one I'd consider repurchasing if I happened upon it in a store again.
