Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Unfortunately it seems the key ingredient being low and fragrance being high, is something all these Sephora masks have in common. I just did a quick glance through all the Sephora masks, (both the original and clean versions) and ALL of them had fragrance higher than their key ingredient, with the exception of the Aloe one - which has Aloe Juice higher than fragrance but the Aloe extract is lower.
Also, just because I thought it was interesting, in the ingredients list of the Coconut clean mask, fragrance is higher than coconut, but Watermelon is higher than them both! πŸ˜‚πŸ€” (there's no watermelon in the original version πŸ˜†)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  I remember I received one of the customer opinion surveys that they sent out about 1 week before they hit the shelves (if that -- maybe less).  Mainly it asked do you like the packaging?  Would you buy it based on the packaging?  Do you believe it is clean?  What if it only has 5 ingredients would you buy it?  Of course they only show the front of the packaging and I thought em, no... there's gonna be fragrance in there.  To me the survey was not to see if people were interested in such a product but if they would buy it based on the ridiculous product packaging and front of package claims (personally, I don't like their packaging - old or new as it just seems so busy.  I understand others may love.  It's just not my style).  But my take away was there was less focus on the ingredient / quality than there was on the marketing and packaging.  Which is disappointing because Sephora does seem to be trying to develop a cleaner (note I said cleaner, not clean) skin care line at a reasonable price point.   Sad the key ingredient is so low down on the list.

Sigh. πŸ˜” @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Thanks! I hadn't noticed this set. I kind of feel like buying it too - probably because it's a better deal than purchasing separately.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Yeah, I think that's why it's more tempting - they're cheaper than what Sephora masks typically go for. That fragrance being so high is why I hesitate 😬

I really enjoy this version, the white sheet is highly saturated so that makes it more flexible and adheres better than the other two I've tried that seemed like they barely had any serum holding in the sheet. Scent was lemon/citrus wear time was 20 minutes, nicely hydrated and moisturized plump and felt great! Definitely a repurchase,, no notable tackiness that lasted 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Happy to hear this one worked well for you @lmaster. I have this one too but haven’t pulled it out yet. Good to know what to expect. πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think you will enjoy this one @itsfi πŸ€ž

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  So happy to hear you enjoyed this one! I have this and Matcha Tea on my list to order during the sale, since I seems like they have gotten the most positive reviews! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 yep I love both of those,, I think some I've tried,,, the serum was not saturating the sheet and it gave me a not so great experience,, I'm curious if it's certain ingredients that's not allowing the serum to deeply penetrate the sheet or if it was some other reason

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Sounds like this would be a nice hydrating one for the cooler weather! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint I really love this one,, it's a keeper πŸ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This one sounds like one to try, @lmaster! Do you have any left of the clean version masks to try?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm pretty sure I've tried all the smaller clean sheets, I have a hemp one that I need to try still @eshoe

Fit? wash off mask

 

Smell?....not great. 😁 herbal. I would not want to smell like this on a regular basis

 

Consistency? It has some grit to it. Its also a ugly brownish yellow color. Not mustard. Maybe mustard, if it went bad...lol. It does dry down but only mild tightness. It was pretty comfortable. I think this might be a problem for sensitive skin, I don't have ss but I think the lemon oil made me 'aware' when i had this on. Maybe getting deep in my pores?🀷

 

Ease of use?it says to rinse off but when you had water, it just gets loose but stays put. I just grabbed an eraser 

 

Would I  purchase/try again? I got this in a ipsy bag & I've been curious about it. It did make my face feel fresh but too early to tell if this will do anything. Luckily, it's a big tube

Finished off the night with laneige lip mask in lemon

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

If I didn't have so much laneige to get through I would be tempted by the lemon. Have you tried the Sara Happ lemon @sonnydee? I'm curious how the scent/taste would compare though I'm not supposed to be licking that lip scrub..oops!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

No i haven't tried Sara Happ anything @ShortErica . Wait! We aint supposed to eat lip scrubs?! πŸ˜³πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahaha @sonnydee! The fizz and bubble lip scrub @faeriegirl sent me directs you to lick it off vs the sara happ says not to ingest.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hmmm... I’m not sure the scent on that mask would be for me @sonnydee, especially if it’s strong. 😬 Now, the Laneige lemon sorbet ... πŸ‹ it’s cold out today but whenever I read lemon sorbet, it makes me want some. 😝 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It definitely is strong @itsfi πŸ˜–

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  I am SO tempted to get that Lemon Laneige, but I'm still ll working on the FS berry and I feel like I've had it forever! The lemon just sounds so yummy πŸ‹πŸ˜‹
