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

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

We share that hope, @itsfi! Maybe the @olehenriksen gods and goddesses will hear our prayers. ๐Ÿ™

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork  Definitely a favorite of mine as well! Happy to hear you love it too! I'll be sad when we stop seeing it at TJ Maxx/Marshall's! ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Most definitely, @Shosh85. But then maybe they'll bring it back (or some version of it) -- here's hoping!

The subtle blend of scents from the Inna Organic Frankincense Rich Revitalizing Facial Mask is very calming and soothing to my senses - it's slightly herbal, slightly sweet, and slightly woody, with just a tinge of fresh, subtle citrus fruit, and this is without any added fragrance! ๐Ÿ’–
 
The sheet mask itself is soft, thin, and feels extraordinarily comfortable against my skin. Adherence is wonderful and fit was made better with a few snips here and there to the corners of the eyes, nose and mouth. Directions recommend 10-20 minutes, but since the mask felt so comfortable on and the slightly viscous essence didn't feel anywhere near close to drying out, I ended up keeping the mask on for my usual 30 minutes. The results from this mask are wonderful as well - the essence absorbs quickly, without leaving any tackiness, and my skin looks and feels refreshed, hydrated and soothed. I even noticed that a couple of slow healing spots seemed a lot less red. I have all of the masks in this particular line and have tried the Rose Geranium mask, which results I liked though the scent was not my favorite. This Frankincense Rich Revitalizing varietal is a winner all around and one I will definitely repurchase. Love.
 
Ingredients:

Demineralized Water, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Glycerin, Cupressus Sempervirens (Cypress) Leaf Water, Propanediol, Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Flower Water, Sodium Levulinate, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Maltose, Agave Tequilana Leaf Extract, Sodium Anisate, Boswellia Neglecta (Frankincense) Resin Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Lavendula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Fusanus Spicatus Wood Oil, Buddleja Davidii Extract, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate
I paired the mask with the Smashbox Mindful 5 Nourishing Lip Oil, which has a drier consistency than I expected from an oil. I think of oils as either thin and runny or thick and goopy, so the texture on this one took me a little by surprise. It's lightweight but with a slightly goopy consistency. I wouldn't describe it as emollient - my lips feel coated but not greasy or heavy, which is nice. I'm not sure though whether this gives me enough hydration or moisture on its own. I'll continue to use it for the next few weeks to see how it performs and how my lips feel about it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi sounds incredible!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, this was so nice. ๐Ÿ˜ Wish I used it sooner but it will definitely be a repurchase.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Mmm frankincense!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Mmm is right @Samtian! I really loved the scent on this one. So relaxing and calming.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi I seem to remember you trying this brand earlier this year; the ingredients stuck out to me. Not sure if Iโ€™ve heard of another one with frankincense!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

From what I've used, and it's only been 2 sheet masks, I am liking this brand, @eshoe. This mask in particular was very nice. I made a note to look more into their skincare products after I've gone through some more of my stash. ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ok you sold me, @itsfi ๐Ÿ˜‚ I wonder if any of their skincare uses the same scent formula. A mist would be lovely!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe, a mist with in this frankincense scent would be fantastic. I just looked online and it seems like thereโ€™s a toner in a spray bottle ๐Ÿ˜ that you can get through amazon, and thereโ€™s a face oil you can get directly on their US site. I cannot justify another mist, but my skin loves face oils in the fall and winter. Hmmm ... ๐Ÿค” Thereโ€™s also a mini travel kit ... Hmmm again ... ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ooh, a frankincense mask! That does sound like a good one, @itsfi

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork, it's the first I've heard of frankincense in skincare. It's lovely and I just saw that they have a line of skincare products featuring frankincense as the star ingredient. I may have to check that out after I've gone through more of my skincare stash. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  I've never heard of this brand! I'm not sure I've ever used a Frankencense mask before - will have to research that one! So happy to hear you loved it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85, the brand only has a few masks but theyโ€™ve been good. Iโ€™m excited to try out the others I have! โ™ฅ๏ธ I thought I saw on their site that they have a sampler set of all the masks in this line and itโ€™s currently marked down.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I donโ€™t think I have any 3 step masks so Iโ€™m going with for Royal pearl! I picked up a box of these last time I was in the city and noticed the expiry date is super close. So I will be trying to use these guys fast! Had a good fit. I normally need to smoosh into place. Stayed on well I left on for 30 minutes maybe longer I donโ€™t remember looking and tracking the time super closely. Claims radiance mask. Pretty much the only English on the box. More research says hydration and whitening. Not sure how much whitening I can see Iโ€™ve got a crazy tan going on. I felt very hydrated tho. I would use it again if I had it but I donโ€™t think I would search it out.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather good job getting through those masks! I like mbd masks, but whitening is a claim I'm unsure of

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  This is the only one Iโ€™ve tried from this brand. I may have to look for others to try!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes, beat those expiration dates @ather! I'm never sure what to expect by whitening claims either. ๐Ÿคท

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  I agree. Like is it my whole face or just spots?! Hmm ๐Ÿค”
