Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

@eshoe @WinglessOne I was really surprised about how much...

@eshoe @WinglessOne I was really surprised about how much a pain this mask was. I wish there was more serum for me too add a blank mask too & try again but no such luck. oh well, ๐Ÿคท can't all be winners

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee Wow, this mask sounds like more trouble than it's worth. Gotta love those sheet masks that try to fly or slide off your face... Sorry it didn't work out for you! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

For the next few weeks I plan to do Holika Holika masks because I think they fall into the Blind Pick (which one of them will I use), Sheet Mask Focus and letter H. A big thanks to @Shosh85 and @missjeanie for helping me get so many varieties!!! If anyone wants to buddy up and compare with me I'd love to have motivation of which to use next. So far I've done lemon and acai berry.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  Yay! I was just wondering when you were gonna do a Holika Holika showdown! I've only tried 3, (lemon, strawberry & rose) and I think Lemon is my favorite so far! I'm pretty sure the Pearl is up next in the schedule for me.... I'll definitely have to compare notes when you've gone through them all! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

And darn! I still have the Mugwort one with your name on it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh yay! Looking forward to your thoughts too @Shosh85. And no worries, there will likely be a smaller but still quite a bit of variety Holika Holika part 2 showdown in the future. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Wow!! That looks so cool @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thanks @lmaster! It will be nice to see which ones stand out

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I can't wait to hear your thoughts @ShortErica . I always love your comparison posts.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thanks @emaisgr8! That's encouragement to take good notes. So far lemon > acai berry for me.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

U is for Ultru

Ultru I'm Sorry For My Skin pH5.5 Brightening Jelly Mask

This is a thin cotton sheet mask that was LOADED with super thick and slimy jelly serum. There was enough extra serum left in the pouch for my neck, chest, arms and legs. It had a mild citrus scent - lemon and orange is what stood out the most to me - and it wasn't as noticeable when the mask was on. The fit was good- just a smidge too wide by the temples and little too long at the chin. It adhered well and was comfortable to wear the 45 minutes I had it on. When I removed it my face felt great and so refreshed. There was some light tackiness that literally lasted an hour and a half! I actually don't mind tack at all and wouldn't even notice it unless I touched my face, which something I try not to do in general- but I do touch it after I mask (with clean hands) for the sake of detailed notes. ๐Ÿ˜‚My skin looked slightly brighter, and had a nice glow and the moisture and hydration from it was long lasting!

I loved this one and would absolutely repurchase, especially if spotted at TJ Maxx again!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 @Oooh this looks interesting! I love ph oriented masks - this sounds great! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Kim888 It really was great! This is only the second pH mask I've used, but I've loved them both! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Havenโ€™t heard of a bad pH5.5 mask yet, @Shosh85! This sounds especially inviting, given the extra serum๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  I loved the thick jellly serum! The only other pH5 mask I tried was the Heimish one and loved that one, so, so far so good! Would definitely love to try out more pH5.5 masks!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

How would you compare it to the Brightening Yadah Jelly @Shosh85? Do you repurchase both at TJ Maxx or prefer one or the other?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  It would be easier to compare them if I did them closer together, but from what I remember and according to my notes, it looks like I like this Ultru one better -  it has thicker jelly serum, a wee bit better scent and was better at moisturizing and hydrating. So, I actually probably wouldn't repurchase the Yadah, now that I've discovered this one! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That's good to know - means I gotta check these out at some point @Shosh85. I think the Yadah jelly have been my favorite jelly mask so far.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 slight tackiness is ok good thing it wasn't sticky ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster Yup, the tackiness was light, it just lasted forever....  I think it'd make a great morning/primer mask ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‰

ohhhhhh๐Ÿ˜ patiently waiting for the day to spot at TJ or...

ohhhhhh๐Ÿ˜ patiently waiting for the day to spot at TJ or M...the scent & mask sound lovely @Shosh85

Re: ohhhhhh๐Ÿ˜ patiently waiting for the day to spot at TJ or...

@sonnydee  Yeah, I found a bunch of different ones at Marshall's right before all this COVID stuff happened. I still haven't been back to TJ Maxx/Marshall's since then, so I'm hoping to find some more too! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
