Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

We can thank @WinglessOne for the inspiration @missjeanie! Iโ€™m always interested in wine pairings; thatโ€™s typically involved food, but Iโ€™m completely open to expanding that to masks. ๐Ÿ˜‚ It may mean I have to sip my wine through a straw, which makes me cringe ๐Ÿ˜ฌ  a bit when I think about it, but if the wine and the masks are good, I can live with the cringe and the judgment that may follow. ๐Ÿ˜ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Most Argentinian malbec you'll find in stores comes from the Mendoza area, but a couple other regions also produce good wines. If you've ever had a French malbec, expect the Argentinian version to be more fruit-forward and softer (less backbone). It's generally very tasty. It's a great red wine that nearly everyone likes, once they've tried itโ€”even folks who turn their noses up at "new world" wines. Malbec out of Argentina is getting more expensive each year, as those wines gain more popularity and notoriety. But one of my favorite things about these wines is how they illustrate that "more expensive" doesn't automatically mean "better." 


ANYway... I also wondered if there are any sheet mask brands from Argentina. I couldn't think of one off the top of my head, so I added it to my rabbit hole list. If you fine one, let me know! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Completely agree with you @WinglessOne  on pricing and quality - they are not necessarily reflective of the other. Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™ve had a Malbec or two at some point, ๐Ÿ˜ but itโ€™s probably been a while. I get set on certain varietals and havenโ€™t been venturing out to try new ones as often as I did previously. The Argentinian Malbecs sound like something I would enjoy.


Iโ€™ll be sure to keep you posted if I find an Argentinian mask. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Would love to know if you discover anything going down that rabbit hole. ๐Ÿ˜‰ With my mask stash โ€œdwindlingโ€ down, Iโ€™ve been thinking of how I want to approach curating new masks. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  Iโ€™m not a big wine drinker, but I love a good Malbec. I was lucky enough to work at a 5 diamond restaurant where the sommeliers allowed us to try all the wines... it was the best education in wine and was a huge benefit when I started officially learning more later in my career. 
your comparison has me sold in this mask! And sold on needing to crack open some wine I have in the bar! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That sounds like an amazing experience, @missjeanie! What a great way to not only be able to try all of the delicious wines but also learn from the professionals about their qualities. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Wait, wait, wait . . . @missjeanie, you tried all the wines at a 5 diamond restaurant??!! *swoons ๐Ÿ˜ With the sommelier?!

(thinks about that again . . . *swoons) ๐Ÿคฉ 

What an incredible opportunity! โ™ฅ๏ธ So happy to hear you were able to do that! ๐Ÿค— 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

lol @itsfi It was a lot of work at the time but it was a big introduction to the world of food for me, the start of a lovely career.  I look back on those memories with a big smile.  I actually just looked up the restaurant and it still has it's rating.  I'd love to go back some time once we're cool to travel again. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ohhh @missjeanie, thatโ€™s awesome that you have those memories! ๐Ÿฅฐ You should definitely go back when you can. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@missjeanie Ooooh, that is lucky! I think that's one of the best ways to learn about wines. If only everyone could have access to what I'm sure was an amazing wine collection! 


I hope you enjoy this mask if you try it! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It was a super nice place, every shift in our pre service meeting we'd do a tasting of one of the wines and one of the menu items.  @WinglessOne at the time I was working in their pastry shop and it was one of the most amazing things for me.  I was in my early 20's and had just left home where dinner was meat, potato, vegetable.  Seeing all of the amazing foods and wines was an eye opener for me!  I just looked up their restaurant as I haven't in years now... I really should carve out some time to travel back there once traveling is kosher again!

Autumn Masks / K&P - MISSHA Potato

I dunno why, but fall makes me think of roasted Potatoes. Plus aside from the PTR Pumpkin (so perfect for this week with Fall and P's, but has been extensively reviewed already) this was the only potential Fall themed mask I could find in my stash.





This is one of MISSHA's Airy Fit sheet mask, so it lighter than their regular ones?? Honestly this felt thick and heavy to me, but not like in a way where I thought it would stay well in place, like a hydrogel, but just thick? I can't really tell, but are they rice based? I do like the idea of wearing a glutinous rice cake, but thats not quite the sense I got from this.

As you can see, not a great fit for my face, but it wasn't terrible.


Says it is watery but more creamy/milky. Not a ton in the package, but A LOT on the mask. No real fragrance or scent that I could detect.


Brightening. It definitely brightens after and the next morning. Does it do it better than any other one? No, but it does definitely brighten.



Wear Time:

Recommends 15-20. I left on 40-45 when it was starting to get a little dryer around the forehead edge, and it still had a TON of serum on the mask that I applied to my neck, arms and hands.

Overall Grade:

B/B- It definitely brightens and the serum was nice, but the fit isn't great and I get the same Brightening effects from wash off masks.


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think this is the first potato mask I've seen @haleyvvvv. Good to know it didnt have a scent. Love the smell of potatoes to eat but probably not the same on the face. Too bad the results weren't more impressive.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I feel like if it smelled like any variety of cooked potatoes, I'd be so happy, but also immediately hungry, lol. But raw potatoes, not so much, @ShortErica., so I'm glad it didn't smell like that. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv  Aww the fit looked awkward a bit. Sounds promising! I think I have one in my stash I might need to dig it out to try!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm curious as to how you find it, @ather!! I hope it works nicely for you and fits your face!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv  I will keep you posted!!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Too bad about the fit, @haleyvvvv! At least there were some nice brightening effects. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Eh, its okay, I'm resigned to most sheet masks not fitting me, and since I love wash off ones and serums (or maybe that makes me love wash off masks) its not a big loss, @quspork!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Fantastic review, @haleyvvvv! We all need plenty of filler masks, and this one seems well enough. Potatoes remind me of fall too, which....just means one step closer to โ„๏ธ!!!!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Nooooo donโ€™t say โ„๏ธ Iโ€™m not ready ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ha ha itโ€™s all about perspective, @ather! ๐Ÿ˜Š If I had to drive in snow, I would most definitely not be looking forward to it!
