Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@treestar86  There might be other US recycling programs that take sheet mask packaging. TerraCycle's just the one I'm most familiar with. 

 

Wash-off mask packaging's not necessarily more recyclable than that of sheet masks, unfortunately. Sometimes it depends on the tube/bottle/jar's color. Example: blue plastic gets recycled to create more blue plastic; it can't be combined with white plastic containers that are recycled to make more white plastic. It's disheartening to read up on what actually happens to the things you drop off for recycling via local municipal programs, and learn how many things end up in landfills after recycling facilities reject them. 😞

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  that's true, but at least they can be re-used, for something - at least that's what I always think, anyway, but then I never use anything up, so I never have that problem, lol.

 

what about the masks themselves, do you have to just throw them away?  or are there biodegradable ones??  I assume the ingredients would probably keep them from being biodegradable, even if the mask itself is...

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@treestar86  When I asked TerraCycle about all of this, I didn't directly ask about the sheets themselvesβ€”but I should have. I did tell them I assume the sheets can't be recycled, and the customer service rep didn't address that at all. I might send them a follow-up question about it, unless someone else does that before I do. πŸ™‚ Also, one of TerraCycle's Zero Waste box categories includes used fabrics. It might be a stretch to consider microfiber sheet masks a form of fabric, but that's kinda what they are, so... huh. 

 

Some brands say their sheet masks are biodegradableβ€”usually those made 100% of cotton (eh, organic cotton), tencel/lycocell, bamboo, hemp, silk (though it takes much longer than the others to break down)β€”so theoretically those would be compostable. But I don't know if certain ingredients in mask serums might affect that. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

For some reason I didn't think I cared for this mask the first time I used it awhile ago,,, now that opinion has changed lol it was a pink sheet that was highly saturated with milky serum with plenty in the sleeve. The fit was great and had that second skin adherence. I would say a floral scent was more notable. Wear time was 20 minutes, after removing, my skin felt more hydrated, brighter and nourished. The moisturization factor was amazing,,I didn't have to apply any additional products and the minor bit of tackiness faded very quickly. This was an A experience this go aroundIMG_20200926_213639310.jpg

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Just goes to show you @ShortErica time of the year does matter with certain masks

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I know! Aren't there so many factors @lmaster?!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster I’m so glad this was better for you the second time around! I might need to retry it, I remember feeling a bit β€˜meh’ about it, too. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe yeah I totally loved it this time πŸ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Glad this one had a turn around for you, @lmaster! It's funny how much our experiences can change from one to the next sometimes. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork that's so true!! Guess it's all what our skin feels it needs at any given moment πŸ˜† thank you!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

 This lovely mask was a gift from @Shosh85 I soaked in the tub with this mask on. My face felt nourished! Not tacky or oily after. Can't go wrong with royal jelly! Thanks for the mask my lovely friend 😊

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ooo a good tub soak is always nice. Plus masking = win win @l8totheparty!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Indeed! @ShortErica
