Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Love the purple πŸ’œ These masks that have such a short wear time always interest me! Sounds like it did well in 8 minutes! I definitely feel like you need two - so you can compare an 8 minute wear time to 15-20 minute wear time. If you do end up doing this, I'll be curious to know what you find out! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Me too @Shosh85! πŸ˜ƒ I typically see sheet masks with shorter wear time as being part of a daily sheet masking pack, with the idea that it’s meant to provide a quick burst of hydration (or other properties are being touted) that when used consistently over time provides more lasting results or perform better at improving the skin’s hydration / moisture barrier / elasticity / balance, etc. This one was quick and provided some good results. πŸ‘πŸΌ  I’ll definitely use it again but for my usual 30 minute wear time. Will keep you posted!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@rosegoldlovely, I tried the peeling mask a few weeks ago Dr. Jart+ Dermask Ultra Jet Peeling Solution Dermask Ultra Jet Peeling Solution. It was a bit mess that didn't do much more than any other peel mask but did work. But if you search a little back in the thread, my full review with pictures will be there.


I haven't tried any of the new ampules (I hate glass ampules, I have to use them a lot for work and they're annoying to open) for the Dr Jart+ rubber masks, but I do like the texture of the rubber masks themselves. I really liked the older formula of the rubber mask serums, though.


To note, I have normal-dry, sensitive ish skin.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv I've never used a peel mask before, so I'm very curious. I also did a Google search of their of the Cryo Masks. Apparently there was a Clear Skin and Nourishing Cryo mask. I know that the box design is old, but they discontinued and are sticking to the current 4 they have now. I have acne prone, oily skin. I would've loved to have tried the gray Clear Skin one.






Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I didn't get to try either of these, @rosegoldlovely, just the hydrating and firming ones, which still exist with different packaging and maybe different ingredients.


If you haven't tried a peel mask before, is your skin used to exfoliation? These masks often have higher concentrations of AHAs/BHAs than leave on chemical exfoliators, as well as be physically exfoliating, as this one is. If your skin isn't used to exfoliation, I'd start with a lower % one and work your way up.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv my skin isn't sensitive at all. I use exfoliators with every face wash and I'm fine. I love using masks at night, while I'm listening to music or watching a video. I don't mask everyday, but I do about 2 or 3 times a week.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Using a wash off exfoliating cleanser and a non exfoliating mask is a lot different, @rosegoldlovely. I've overexfoliated my skin, so I just warn people if they're new to certain exfoliation type products.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv How will I know if I over exfoliated?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Unlike, @sonnydee, @rosegoldlovely, when I overexfoliated, my skin skipped over being sensitive and went right to moisture barrier disruption. I had to be very delicate for 2+ weeks, no actives, no clearing masks, only hydration and ceramides. Sometimes people's skin gets tight and shiny and sensitive. So I just thought I'd give you a heads up if you were new to peeling masks and exfoliation in general. Hope it works out for you.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hi, im oily, acne prone myself. For me if I over exfoliated. I either break out easier. Or more common, my face gets sensitive, when my face is usually not sensitive. ie: you use a product that you used before & it stings some in places.  usually the upper cheek area, right under your eye socket. So if i exfoliate with a harsh one- I don't exfoliate again until days later. Also used the peel mask & liked it. It was a gentle peel. And if you shop at Tjmaxx or Marshalls be on the lookout for these masks I have seen & purchased from there. Even found the grey clear skin@rosegoldlovely 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

M is for Missha




Missha Real Solution Hyaluronic Acid Tencel Sheet Mask

This thin tencel sheet mask was drenched with a thin slimy serum and had a light, clean & fresh sort of scent. It had a great fit - just a little too long at the chin/jawline. The adherence was great and it was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. When I removed it my face looked and felt refreshed. There was a little tack but it absorbed in about 10 minutes. My skin felt soft and smooth and comfortably hydrated.

This mask turned out great, though it's not one I'd repurchase, due to the alcohol.



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 same!!! @itsfi uughhhh why does AD have to be so high up there!?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  I know, right?! AD in 4th place is just too much! It's probably the best mask with high alcohol that I've tried though! πŸ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ughhh!!! 😩 Denatured alcohol!!!! 😠 That’s such a bummer @Shosh85. I think (hope) as more and more brands are sourcing better ingredients that older masks will be reformulated with better for the skin ingredients without losing the effectiveness of the older version. It will be interesting to see how longer standing, popular skincare brands, including Missha respond. Let’s hope a new and even better version of this mask comes out (without bad alcohols). 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I definitely hope more and more brands/companies strive for cleaner, better ingredients! I don't have sensitive skin, so there really isn't a lot of ingredients I try to avoid....... except that dang alcohol! 😐

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Darn about the alcohol, HA is usually good to my skin so I was hoping it was a winner. Glad it gave good results even though it isn't a repurchase @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica   Yeah, I'm all for the HA, but I feel like the high AD kinda cancels it out. 😬 Although, it's  probably the best mask I've tried with that high of alcohol - so that's something πŸ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Great mask.  Sorry about the alcohol.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@tjffc  Well, they can't all be winners 🀷🏻

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This sounds like it gave some nice results, @Shosh85! Sorry the alcohol content holds it back for you.
