Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

O is for The Orchid Skin

Orchid (2).jpeg

Spoiler
Details: The Orchid Skin Hyaluronic Acid Mask is a soft, ultra thin "nude-cell" sheet mask saturated in a clear, lightweight watery essence that smells pleasantly of a blend of a light, slightly sweet lotion and a fresh, subtle fruity-floral scent that reminds me of pomelo.
 
What I Liked:
  • Adherence is superb - it literally feels like you are not wearing anything - love it! ๐Ÿ˜
  • Fit wasnโ€™t so bad; too large all around the perimeter of my face except the forehead area. The holes for the eyes and mouth were extra large too which were fine by me as I didnโ€™t have to make any adjustments except for the perimeter.
  • Results were outstanding - just the teensiest bit of tack to the touch after 30 minutes of wear and my skin looked and felt hydrated, plump and dewy. โค๏ธ
 
Area(s) for Improvement: If Iโ€™m being very picky, there could be more material for the area above the lip - itโ€™s a very thin strip that barely covers half of the length of the philtrum. Also, thereโ€™s added fragrance but as that is the last ingredient listed, itโ€™s not a significant issue for me personally.
 
Would I Repurchase?: In a heartbeat. ๐Ÿ’–

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I love how simple yet elegant your photo is!! @itsfi sounds like a beautiful mask

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @lmaster๐Ÿค— I find the packaging on this one to be very pretty; I was definitely drawn in by the aesthetics. ๐Ÿ˜ One of the stems from my orchid plant broke so I was trying to keep it going, and decided to use the broken stem in the photo.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Wow, @itsfi, what a treat this mask must have been! Curious if you picked up the Collagen. Their eye patches look interesting, too.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, I have their eye masks and plan to give them a go this week, which I guess means I need to use them tonight or tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜† I have a few other masks from the brand; I think the collagen mask is one of them. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  -- Is Orchid the brand?  Does the mask have fragrance of any kind?  I would anticipate since it is based on a flower most likely but I like the review and orchids are good plants.  Try as I might I never could get mine to re-bloom the next season.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@MCSSavvy, sorry for the delay in responding; I haven't been online regularly over the last few days and just saw your post. The brand is The Orchid Skin. I just looked at the back of the packet and added fragrance is the last ingredient listed. It wasn't an issue for me with this mask but I do have occasionally have sensitivity to fragrance and I know others do as well. 

 

I love orchids. ๐Ÿ’– I've had the most success with orchids re-blooming with those that I place near a window that has access to a good source of light, somewhere where the plant gets some but not too much direct sunlight, if that makes sense. And if I'm consistent with feeding it, too - 2-3 ice cubes depending on how large the orchid plant is, once per week. I've had a couple that I've had to say 'good bye' to, but have had one that's been doing really well for a few seasons now. *fingers crossed it keeps its track record. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Thanks for the info!  Orchids are beautiful and so glad to hear you have had some success on getting a few of yours to rebloom.  I do not get very much natural light in my flat in part due to shade from the tree in front and also due to the direction my windows face.  When I moved to my current flat I had some small potted palms and z-plants.  Unfortunately, the squirrels took a liking and alas I have pots but no plants!  LOL!  I'll look into the mask you tried.  I'm allergic to fragrance but if it's really lightly scented I may be ok with it.  ๐Ÿ˜„  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Sometimes the strip under the nose can be so skinny, it's a like thong for your face! ๐Ÿ˜‚ This one sounds wonderful! Happy to hear you'd repurchase in a heartbeat!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yessssss @Shosh85! You're a genius! That is an excellent way to describe it! ๐Ÿคฃ Whenever the strip covering the area above the lip is so thin I always wonder what happened at the design stage where they thought that would work?! Especially when there's so much extra width-wise all around and the length at the chin/jawline. Like, who thought making that strip just a bit larger than dental floss would make for good proportions?!!! ๐Ÿ˜†

This was a light pink sheet with tons of extra clear bubbly serum in the package, I love how it had snips in most of the areas I would need to do myself, so that's a major plus for me! It's long at the chin area and did bunch in areas around the mouth, however it adhered very nicely to my under eyes and around my nose. The scent was great and fruity, watermelon did stand out more than anything. Wear time was 20 minutes, after removing,, my skin felt hydrated and moisturized and looked more vibrant and nourished,, very pleasantly surprised with this one!! I would love to add more to the family at some point, I didn't experience any tackiness or pilingIMG_20201005_211244102.jpg

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh it sounds nice @lmaster. Is the material more similar to the Holika Holika aloe one or the Holika Holika essence line or something else?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Haha!! Not sure @ShortErica it was thin and pink with cuts in it,,, wish I could remember the other versions

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Just another reason to try them again @lmaster ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yum that sounds like a great mask @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888 it's going to give other watermelon masks good competition

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster, you nailed the theme! I'm craving watermelon looking at this sheet mask! Even better that it performed so well and smelled like watermelon. ๐Ÿ‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi yes yes yes!!! It was a delicious mask ๐Ÿ‰ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Wow @lmaster watermelon ๐Ÿ‰ extract is the first ingredient!!! Very impressive, now I want to go try this one:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I was impressed too!! I definitely want more, but after I get through more of the lookatme watermelon masks 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  So happy to hear you loved it! Love the packaging! ๐Ÿ‰ Can't wait to try mine! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
