Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

These are excellent!! @Shosh85 they smell pretty nice too

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  Yay, I'm glad Red Squeeze worked well for you! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne oh these are amazing! Thank you

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This mask seemed perfect for the theme ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŒˆ




The Creme Shop Rainbow Mask

This is a medium thickness cotton sheet mask that was white with cute colored hearts all over it. ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒˆ It has a yummy sweet/fruity scent, that to me, smelled like a mix of blueberry and cranberry- but maybe leaning more toward blueberry. The fit was better than your average Creme Shop mask - just smidge too long at the chin and teeny bit too wide at the forehead. The adherence was ok for the 30 minutes I had it on, but the chin part did pop up half way through and did not want to go back down. When I removed it, my face felt a little tacky, but absorbed after about 5 minutes. My face looked a little brighter and felt slightly plump, hydrated and soft & smooth.


This is a great mask and I'm definitely glad I found a few boxes of this one Marshall's - I'd even buy more if I spotted them again!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Such a cute mask, and definitely on theme. Nice, @Shosh85 !!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv  It really is super cute! I was happy the results turned out nice too! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85  Sounds delightful!! I will definitely need to seek this one out! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather  It's hard not to love a fruity-rainbow-hearted mask!  ๐Ÿ˜‹๐ŸŒˆ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I so want to do this one but since it has a later expiration date I'm trying to focus on other masks that are rainbow. Glad to hear it gets a good review from you @Shosh85. Maybe 2021 Rainbow week ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  I feel ya. There are so many later-date masks that I'm excited to try, but am trying really hard to save! I wouldn't normally have used this one, but it just fit the theme so well, I couldn't help myself ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŒˆ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 it was the perfect pick! I'm thinking it could have been a mask meetup. Hindsight is 20/20 and all

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Absolutely perfect for the theme!! @Shosh85 the packaging just makes me happy

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  It makes me happy too! It's definitely the kind of packaging that catches your attention! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

The rainbow mask! It sounds like it worked out nicely for you, @Shosh85. I love the packaging on this one- it just looks so cheerful. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork  It's definitely a cheerful mask! It's hard to frown at hearts and rainbow colors! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This one sounds great @Shosh85! I like that the scent leans more towards blueberry, too! ๐Ÿ˜ I'm looking forward to using this mask this week - if you and @sonnydee like it, it should mean it'll be a good one for my skin year-round. The hearts on the mask are so cute! ๐Ÿ’–

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  It's such a fun mask! I think if I could change anything, it'd be the thickness of the material. There's not too many Creme Shop masks that make it on my repurchase list, but this is one of them! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This mask is so pretty, @Shosh85! Love the font on the ingredients list, too, ha;)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe Right? The rainbow goodness is the reason I'd buy more! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŒˆ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Well I wrapped up my Holika Holika sheet masks weeks. My opinion is these serve as decent filler masks. With one big exception: if you don't do lavender (like @WinglessOne) all the versions I used except for the charcoal have lavender extract, lavender oil or sometimes both. I bought a few boxes at Marshalls and was sent some other varieties from @Shosh85 and @missjeanie - big thanks again to both of you sweeties!

The material is nice and thin and the fit was good for me. Easily smooshable where needed and although I'd like an extra centimeter on the forehead, I'll overlook it. Looking at the packages, the varieties seemed to have similar ingredients including good like centella asiatica and glycerin, maybe like matricaria extract which can promote wound healing but for some can be an irritant, and then going more into potential irritant territory with lavender, bergamot, orange and other citrus extracts. I personally enjoy lavender in baths as relaxation before bed but am not a floral scent fan, especially on my face. The wear time was 20-30 minutes. I don't know why some stayed moist longer than others but think I'd never go 10 from the instructions saying 10-20. Some tended to focus on nourishing or moisturizing while others claimed brightening, wrinkle-helping and other results. My conclusion is that in general the results weren't that different from mask to mask. My skin looked fresh and even but I didn't get a wow. I got minimal to no tack with all of them. I always put moisturizer over top because I don't think just an essence mask is enough to moisturize my skin. I tend to do this for almost every mask I use so these were no different. The packages only contained the slightest dab of excess serum to use on the neck -or- hands, not enough for both. But since I wasn't wowed by the serum, I didn't feel like I was missing out by not being able to use extra serum again on my face. Most fall into a use again but not repurchase category though I have some that I probably wouldn't yearn to try again because of scent preferences.


Breaking down the scents I got from the masks and if I saw additional results

Acai Berry - perfumy scent, had orange, bergamot and lavender in ingredients but didn't really pinpoint those scents just general perfume

Avocado - smelled like lavender but not overpowering, this one claimed it helped with wrinkles and well, no results in that category unfortunately

Charcoal - light floral scent, for some reason masks made of black material seem to have an edge on the others for fit, just a bit better than the rest for that

Cucumber - kinda floral scent, did not stand out

Damask Rose - smelled like..rose, so at least that was expected

Green Tea - light to medium green tea scent that lingered during wear, probably one of the better ones in my opinion because of green tea scent compared to floral

Lemon - pleasant lemon scent, also appreciated because that was expected

Pearl - heavy lavender smell but also maybe sage-like or grassy, my husband got medicinal from it, it did brighten slightly better than the others but not compared to other brightening masks I've used

Rice - holy lavender! I use I think mild scent with rice and this was right in your face

Shea Butter - also strong lavender scent, I used this one during tv time before bed which was preferable to lavender in the daytime

Strawberry - I tried this one before and remember it not giving any strawberry vibes. To me the scent was like a leftover lemon that had been soaking in iced tea with a touch of floral. Odd, but that's the best description I can think of for it. So the scent was odd but okay

Moral of the story: I'm on a mask no-buy to tame the collection. As I use more masks, it encourages me to be more selective in which 10 packs I will pick up in the future. Even with sharing there's a lot to use so it's gotta be a strong mask to warrant 10 coming into the collection. I'll use what I have and probably have a mini Holika Holika showdown again in the future. But in the end these wouldn't be ones I'd choose to pick up again. If there was a variety pack of these, maybe I'd play the Holika Holika comparison game again but I don't need 10 of one version. I like showdowns or duels or whatever with masks. Fine to try not to buy for me.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I'm with you on these ones @ShortErica .  I'm glad I got to try some out, but I wasn't wow'd by any of them.  They'll due as filler masks, but a 10 pack would be a no go for me again as well.  Those dang 10 packs are the death of me... I go through phases of 'use stuff up/don't buy too much' and then the 'you need to have everything' ones.  I've gotta start being a lot more selective when I start going back to stores.  Those TJ's/Winners 10 packs are easy to avoid when I'm not in the stores lol
