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.

GLAM AND GLOW MASKS (L&O)

20200917_232634~2.jpg

Thought a gold foil mask was pretty on theme for GLAM.

 

Fit:

Spoiler
20200917_232826~2.jpg

Pooooooor. Surprisingly short forehead. Waaay to long in the chin. Didn't adhere well and kept shifting as I laid down. Blah. Was a bit itchy.

Serum:

Spoiler
Not really present. Watery and thin, not a ton on the mask or in packet.

Claims:

Spoiler
Hydrating. Which is mild at best. I put on my Kate Somerville Retinol Kate Somerville +Retinol Vita C Power Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL before, and my skin felt extra smooth after, so I feel like the foil but worked well to really seal in that serum.

Ingredients:

Spoiler
Nothing standout. A lot of perfume mid way through which was definitely obvious, unfortunately.
20200917_232654~3.jpg

Sorry for the terrible photo, taking a picture of this packaging was hard.

Wear Time:

Spoiler
15 minutes, I left on closer to 20-25. It was drying a bit toward the edges, but I wrung some serum onto my neck and arms.

Overall Grade:

Spoiler
C-/D. It wasn't a good mask at all.

Bonus mask: Oh, isn't that cute, it's a polar bear (Ours!! ๐Ÿป๐Ÿงธ๐Ÿป๐Ÿงธ, en franรงais)

20200915_233622.jpg

Spoiler
Thats it. Its a cute mask that doesn't irritate. I've used a few varieties of these Masque Bar masks, and aside from wanting to try a few for cuteness, I think these are great for like a slumber party for the like my nerves *neices* or something (f-ing autocorrect).

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv  I wasn't a big fan of the Sephora mask either, but I haven't really liked any of the masks from this line. Glad the cute bear could make up for it! I agree, these masks are definitely perfect for parties or party favors! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, @Shosh85, both of these were a bit disappointing, but thats okay, they didn't outright cause any negative side effects. I tried the silver SC mask too and it also wasn't good.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Seems like no gold stars for the Golden mask. Sorry it was so bad @haleyvvvv. You make a cute bear and I'm sure your nieces would be too!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you, @ShortErica!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv Awe cuteness!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you, @Samtian!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, those SC foils just aren't great, unfortunately, @haleyvvvv. My experience with them was very similar to yours. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Seems like a pretty common reaction, unfortunately, @quspork. I hope they'll think about a reformulation going forward. I also tried the silver one and it wasn't good.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv I have to agree with you on the SC foil masks, they are pretty, but pretty mediocre unfortunately,, super cute animal mask!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, it was disappointing, @lmaster. I think id tried the silver one too and it was similarly bad. Maybe they'll reformat a "clean" version that works better. Thank you!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Agree @haleyvvvv, the Masque Bar Animalz masks have a fun quotient to them based on their design. You make an adorable polar bear! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you, @itsfi!! Yes, they are just too darned cute., its honestly a bit of a shame that they don't work better.

Playing a bit of catch up

 

Rainbow Week

Spoiler
Although the The Creme Shop Rainbow mask was so tempting - thanks for sending it my way @sonnydee, I opted for some other colorful varieties that had sooner expiration dates

First up was the Hello Kitty Problem Solver mask - not as colorful as my next Hello Kitty choice but wow did this one win me over. A big thank you to @emaisgr8 for sharing with me!

The mask had a good fit except eyes and nose - I prefer less gap by the nose and the philtrum area was thin. It had a nice material. To me it smelled like bath and body works products, somewhat fruity but clean. I wore it for 25 minutes. It had no tack. The results were quite nice especially since during the past few weeks I've had some blemish issues. My skin looked revitalized and the redness seemed lessened. I'd give this one an A. Not sure if I found the perfect "just what the doctor ordered" mask for my skin's current needs but I definitely will try it again when I'm off the no buy. Fingers crossed there will be some at TJ/Marshalls.
The next Hello Kitty for rainbow week was taken from a Masks on the Move box

Although it had a similar fit as other Hello Kitty, the likeness stopped there. I guess I did wear it 25 minutes too. I didn't notice the red shimmer/glitter on mask at first but this wasn't a pleasant surprise. After removing the mask, the glitter remained on my skin. The philtrum area felt somewhat irritated when putting moisturizer on top - was I rubbing in glitter? In good news, it felt fine 5 minutes later. I can't deny my skin was bright. Above the lip area reminded me of how "beauty gurus" put highlighter there which was kinda funny. The smell was light, mostly clean with a touch of lemon. I'd give it a B. Glitter on the face is a no go for me.
My final rainbow pick was the BioBelle #Dreamskin mask which I also took out of a Masks on the Move box

It had an enjoyable tencel material. The fit was good but a bit short on my forehead. I had it on for 30 minutes. There was no tack. I'm not sure how cleanses, tones, and moisturizes. My skin looked nice and felt moisturized. Again, not sure how it cleansed, and I washed my face before using the mask so who knows. Other than that claim, it was a good mask for me. I'd say A-.
And I can't forget my other enjoyable rainbow week experience thanks to @lmaster - a rainbow bath bomb! I love a good bath. ๐Ÿ™‚

I just couldn't get any Autumn feels with the heat in Florida, hopefully sometime soon. I was wanting to dive into the Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask 5 oz/ 148 mL but wasn't in a pumpkin mood. I also have a can of pumpkin just waiting to be turned into bread. So I opted for K and P

@eshoe gifted me a Heimish ph5.5 mask and I've seen some love for it on here

The mask had a very thin material. It was a bit hard to manage applying even with the cover. It had a good fit but I missed having more material around the nose area. It had no smell on the mask to me, typical mask but in package there was a hint of floral. The instructions said 10-20 minutes; by 15 nose was dry and by 20 so was the chin. I couldn't use on neck but put a little of the extra serum there. The blemish on my nose still felt irritated but otherwise my skin was good. My forehead lines seemed diminished compared to normal (best part). There was a generous amount of extra serum for face and neck on a different day too. I think I have a 2nd one that I'm looking forward to use again. First impression I'll say A-.


The only other thing I used that week was the Patchology Flashpatch Rejuvenating Eye Gels - a treat from @faeriegirl

These are medium-thin eye gels. They did not move around but also didn't "stick." The wear time said 5 minutes but I did 20 - I know, I'm such a rebel. ๐Ÿ˜‚ During wear I didn't get a cooling sensation but when I touched them and removed it, the skin underneath was cooler. These helped with lines, still temporary but it's something! My heart still belongs to Skyn Iceland but these are a thumbs up and I'd use again.

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  I love what you picked for rainbow week! That BB Dreamskin mask was one of my favorites, though, I'm a big fan of most their originals. 
I really enjoyed that Heimish mask too! Glad you saw some nice results from it! 

P.S - I have never liked the taste of anything pumpkin -- except your bread! That really was so delicious! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Haha @Shosh85 maybe I'll have to get you to try some other pumpkin things

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™ve never made pumpkin bread, @ShortErica - I bet itโ€™s delicious! Zucchini bread is my favorite, but now Iโ€™m curious. Time for something new!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe Pumpkin bread might be my favorite. I wouldn't pass on banana either but if I have to have a favorite. Growing up my mom would also make pumpkin pancakes in the fall.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica Its pumpkin season.  I can feel it in the air๐Ÿ˜€

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm so jealous @tjffc. My husband said our low will be 70 next week.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™ve never had those either, @ShortErica! I donโ€™t eat pancakes often, but make them for my daughter. I have always made them with wheat flour, and a couple of weeks ago accidentally grabbed the white flour. She calls them โ€˜mutant pancakes.โ€™
