To Post:

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. Don't forget to include a grade (thanks to @ShortErica for the idea) to help others along the way.


Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface @Shosh85  Peripera's parent company, Clio, has done some brand restructuring. Peripera is now focused on cosmetics and no longer creates skincare. Goodal is now the skincare-focused brand in Clio's lineup. So if you love Peripera masks and want more of them, buy them whenever you see them somewhere. There most likely won't be more produced. ๐Ÿ˜ž 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  I'm not happy about this at all! ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜  I've honestly liked the Peripera masks a lot more than the Goodal masks tried. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Who knows though, maybe Goodal will come out with some new masks that I'll love.๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I kept forgetting if I've tried many (or any) Goodal masks, so I added 3 to my last YesStyle order. I hope they're at least decent. I wish Goodal had just taken over Peripera's existing mask lines, but oh well. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  I don't remember a whole lot about the ones I tried since it was before my note saving days, but I feel like they've been good, just nothing stand-out. I guess it's possible I just haven't tried the right ones! I think I have a few more in my stash, so I'll be interested to see how those turn out. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  I'm glad you enjoyed this one! I've used this one but don't think I ever reviewed it here. I remember the serum smelling a lot like apple candy in the sleeve compared to barely smelling like anything on my face. It's one of the few times I wished there was a stronger scent during use. Still, it's a very good mask! Hoard 'em while you can! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  I can't remember if I smelled it in the sleeve or not, but I definitely wouldn't mind it being a bit stronger too!

I'll be super sad when they're not available at all anymore! ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I am currently using a sample of Tarte Clay mask. It is a multi mask sample, one side is clay the other gel. I didn't have enough room for both so I'm just working on one side at a time. I also finally finished the snowman mask haha.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian, Iโ€™ve seen this mask before - itโ€™s in a huge tub with a pretty top but itโ€™s a lot of product, I recall. Iโ€™ll be interested in your thoughts on the clay mask after youโ€™ve gone through your sample. Does the mask have a noticeable scent to it?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I looked it up, it is really pretty! I honestly don't remember, but I'll be using it again on Thursday so I'll be on the look out for any scent.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Whatโ€™s your thoughts! Iโ€™ve seen it but never tried it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ather I'm going to do it again tomorrow night so I'll post on Friday my thoughts and stuff, because I honestly don't remember.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Sounds good!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh that sounds pretty cool @Samtian never tried that one before

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster It's pretty interesting.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian   Well this brought a smile to my face.   My brain thinks clay and translates that to drying which I know isnโ€™t always the case.  Is this meant to be more a hydrating or clearing mask?  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface I'm glad, I love making people smile. This one is supposed to be clearing. It has a gel part with it that does the hydrating. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian Oh my gosh, I love this photo! ๐Ÿ˜What kind of results did you see from this one?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  ๐Ÿ˜„ ha thank you! I didn't notice anything but oily in the morning. i'll keep a closer eye next week.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Your photo is amazing @Samtian! Does the clay mask seem effective?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica haha thank you. I didn't notice anything. I was really oily when I woke up but later in the day it went back to normal. I'll have to keep a closer eye out next week. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hitting all 3 of last weekโ€™s themes: J = Japan, Q = Q10, and a vibrantly colored serum. Sunday nightโ€™s mask was the DHC Coenzyme Q10 Pack Sheet. 

 

I've tried 2 other DHC masks before, but this one's new to me. Love how compact DHC's sleeves are.I've tried 2 other DHC masks before, but this one's new to me. Love how compact DHC's sleeves are.

Notes: 

Spoiler

Claims: Deeply hydrates and restores elasticity; soothes and moisturizes; neutralizes free radical damage. 

 

Ingredients: Oh hey, thereโ€™s our good friend lecithin again, placed high on this list. Some folks might freak out over phenoxyethanolโ€™s presence, despite the fact that itโ€™s a safe preservative (seriously, what is with โ€œcleanโ€ brands/lobbyists/influencers/fans demonizing good preservatives?) that's approved by the European Commission on Health and Food Safety in concentrations up to 1%, and the FDA hasn't deemed it dangerous. 

 

โ€œBut wait, Q10 appears after phenoxyethanol in this list! That means youโ€™re getting less than 1% Q10 in this mask; seems like a ripoff. Why isnโ€™t the star ingredient higher?โ€ Well, Q10โ€™s been shown to be effective in topical skincare products at concentrations as low as 0.3%, so Iโ€™m not concerned. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But this is a good example of how product formulation matters as much as its contents. Iโ€™m still gonna whine about sodium hyaluronate being so low on this list, though. I also see an oil-soluble form of vitamin C (ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate) that sounds great on paper but needs more study to prove efficacy, since our bodies have to convert it to vitamin C before it can do its magic. 

 

As for the last ingredientโ€ฆ yeah, Iโ€™m still not convinced that topically applied collagen molecules can actually penetrate deep enough into skin (if at all) to do much good, so I donโ€™t care that itโ€™s in last place here. 

Spoiler
Water/aqua/eau, butylene glycol, glycerin, triethylhexanoin, pentylene glycol, hydrogenated lecithin, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, polyglyceryl-10 myristate, phenoxyethanol, glyceryl stearate SE, ubiquinone, tocopherol, carbomer, ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, dipotassium glycyrrhizate, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, serine, squalane, xanthan gum, potassium hydroxide, sodium hyaluronate, allantoin, biotin, olea europaea (olive) leaf extract, soluble collagen 

Performance: This thick, non-stretch, white sheet was unevenly coated in a very thick, yellow, and unscented cream serum. 

 

It was hard to get that yellow serum evenly distributed.It was hard to get that yellow serum evenly distributed.I assume the yellow hue comes from all the triethylhexanoin (an emollient) since there arenโ€™t any colorants listed in the ingredients. Anyway, this sheet also had large forehead tabs, much too big to leave in place. I cut those off, along with the eye flaps, and used all the trimmings to cover exposed skin at my jaw and forehead. (The sheet did cover a good amount of my jaw, but I like coverage all the way to my ears.) 

I didnโ€™t need to widen any holes (the eyeholes were generously sized), and the chin was just short enough to not fold under at all. As with many thick sheets, this one didnโ€™t stay adhered everywhere, but it behaved better than I expected. After 30 minutes of wear, I spent maybe 20-30 seconds massaging in residual serum. My skin quickly soaked it all up, leaving no pilling or tack behind. 

 

Results: Moderately hydrated and mildly moisturized skin that felt firmer and had a bit of glow. Folks with normal to oily skin might find this mask quite moisturizing, but my combo skin wasnโ€™t that impressed. I mean, it doesnโ€™t fail in the moisturization department, but itโ€™s nowhere near the best moisturizing masks Iโ€™ve used. This mask did deliver on DHCโ€™s improved elasticity claim. If I used this mask regularly for a month, Iโ€™d probably notice even bigger improvement. But honestly, Iโ€™d rather frequently use a bottled Q10 serum than this sheet mask. 

 

If anyone plans to try this mask, be sure to massage the sleeve for a minute or 2 before opening it to try evenly coating the sheet with serum. I wish DHC had included that in their instructions.
