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.

F is for The Face Shop

Sheet Mask

Spoiler
I've been bombarding parts of my face with some heavy-duty zit zapping skincare products and for the most part, the few ugly, large acne spots that have crept up are being effectively treated, if causing me some heartache. Sigh. ๐Ÿ˜ž To soothe my skin and add a little brightness to my complexion, I reached for The Face Shop Bio-Cell Brightening Face Mask, a soft, thin, gel-like bio-cellulose sheet mask geared toward brightening the complexion. The mask feels cool against my skin as it melds easily to the contours of my face, and wraps comfortably like a blanket around my face, the slightly herbal and very lightly citrus scented essence infused in the mask. 
 
Glutathione is the star ingredient in this particular sheet mask - it is a non-enzymatic antioxidant that is naturally found in the body but like most things, gradually depletes from our body as we age. It is a tripeptide that works to diminish the visible signs of aging and environmental damage and helps to brighten the skin by inhibiting the production of melanin-producing enzymes. This seemed like a good go-to mask for the post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that inevitably follows my breakout. After 20 minutes, my skin felt soft, looked hydrated, refreshed, and brightened. My acne spots are less red and even the largest of them seemed less angry. The mask did what it claimed to do and is one that I would repurchase. Thank you to the wonderful @keana1 for sending this lovely mask my way!

Lip Balm

Spoiler
Laneige Lip Glowy Balm - Gummy Bear is a lightly moisturizing, pinky/purple lavendar tinted balm, the consistency of which reminds me more of a cross between a gloss and a balm than a pure balm. It glides on smoothly, makes my lips soft and adds a light sheen to them. It's a nice complement to the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask - Gummy Bear, which I used last night and which has a thicker, slightly tacky consistency like the other flavors in the brand's lip sleeping mask collection.  @SportyGirly125  likened it to grape candy, and keana1 said raisin candy. I had a harder time picking up on the grape flavor; whenever I smelled both products, all I could think of was gummy candy, no particular flavor. sportygirly125 put her detective skills to work and uncovered gummy lifesavers and I think that is spot on! ๐Ÿ˜Š

I can't seem to tag the new LE Gummy Bear flavor . . .

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi now you did get both the balm and lip mask in the gummy bear flavor? If so do they both smell the same to you?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, I did pick the lip sleeping mask and the lip glowy balm in the same gummy bear flavor. Some have picked up a grape ๐Ÿ‡ candy flavor but my nose hasnโ€™t gotten grape yet. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ But with the peach lip glowy balm, I also didnโ€™t pick up a peach scent either. The scent is more pronounced in the lip sleeping mask and last night it smelled sweet and fruity-ish.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi ok good to know! I did pick up the grapefruit balm, the gummy bear mask and the sweet candy I believe lip mask

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, ohhh, you picked some good ones!! The grapefruit lip balm is my favorite scent of the bunch! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi I really love the grapefruit lip mask, so I figured I'd go ahead and try the balm ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I've definitely been curious about the new flavor @itsfi - interesting to hear it's grape-y

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Kim888, I know others have picked up a grape scent; I canโ€™t seem to for whatever reason. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Maybe itโ€™s because I associate grape with the flavor of childrenโ€™s cough syrup and I donโ€™t get that scent from it. I can pick up a sweet fruit scent. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

So glad to see the new flavor of Laneige popping up, @itsfi. As a gummy candy lover, I'm intrigued by this new flavor!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I love gummies too @quspork! ๐Ÿ’• Itโ€™s been a while since Iโ€™ve had some; may need to change that. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maybe a visit to the Sugarfina website is in order. ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi 

 

I was super disappointed about the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Original since it just felt like it was sitting on my lips.  I'm super interested in the new Laneige Gummy Bear lip balm tho!  I'm a sucker for that purple color and would love to try that gummy bear scent/ flavor!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@RAWRitsRED, oh, Iโ€™m sorry to hear that the Laneige lip mask feels like it sits on top of your lips; Iโ€™ve heard that from a couple of people. The lip balm has a lighter consistency than the lip sleeping mask so it would be less moisturizing, but do you also get the same feeling of the product just sitting on top of your lips with the balm as you do the lip sleeping mask?

Iโ€™m trying to think of another balm that has a purple tint to it but am drawing a blank at the moment. BITE made a lavender lip mask but my recollection is that it has more of a pinkish hue. Nothing else is coming to mind at the moment, but if I think of something, Iโ€™ll let you know. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi 

I haven't tried their balm yet but maybe I'll try it out since there's a sale coming up!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I love your post @itsfi ! I meant grape candy, I suppose I was thinking in French! Raisin = Grape ๐Ÿ™„. Iโ€™m so glad that the BIO-CELL Brightening Mask improved your skin! Your reviews are amazing, I love the details you include in them ! ๐Ÿงโค๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Aww thank you @keana1! ๐Ÿค— Thatโ€™s very kind of you to say. Itโ€™s fun to talk about masks. 

 

Oh, I should have made the connection with raisin = grape in. French. All those years of French and I missed it. Thank you for sending this one my way - Bio-cellulose masks feel especially nice when my skin is irritated. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@keana1 @Glad to know you think it smells like grape candy too 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Maybe @itsfi will eventually agree with both of us @SportyGirly125 ! ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ’œ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@keana1, I donโ€™t pick up grape specifically for some reason. Great that you @SportyGirly125 do. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I can understand @itsfi . Iโ€™ve never been able to smell the peach in the LaNeige Peach lip balm and youโ€™re able to! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Happy to hear you enjoyed the sheet mask! Those results sound wonderful! This is yet another line of masks on my list to try sometime ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ
