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. πŸ’– 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.  πŸ˜„  

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! πŸ˜‚ 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! πŸ€£ 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?!!! πŸ˜†

Masks that make you hungry...

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 πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi yes yes yes!!! It was a delicious mask πŸ‰ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Wow @lmaster watermelon πŸ‰ 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! πŸ‰ Can't wait to try mine! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I know some people don't like the cuts in the sheets, but I really really liked them!! Really nice results and scent

After reading about the Suqqu Moisture Rich Mask, I thought it might be a good fit for dry, dehydrated winter skin. It is packed with plenty of good-for-skin ingredients like pear juice ferment (helps to retain moisture), ecotine (helps to increase the skin cell’s ability to retain water and protects proteins and enzymes, which help to condition the skin), Glycyrrhizate and Adlay Extract (have an anti-inflammatory action to help soothe skin), and Coix Lacryma-Jobi Ma-yuen Seed Extract. Which I learned is another name for Job’s Tears, which I’ve been curious to try!

 

The tube is a plus. Easy to use and no need to clean a little spatula after using. The mask itself is a very thick gel, almost like melted hot glue (or a thicker Honey Potion). Immediately I sensed this would be ideal for locking in moisture, as it felt like it was sealing it in while on my face. Only a small amount is necessary, seems like less is more with this one. The scent is like a soft, fruity rose mixed with white tea. Green tea is an ingredient, but the scent itself may be due to the added fragrance. It’s very subtle, and relaxing.

 

I left it on around ten minutes, though the recommended time is only around five (!) I did not use a tissue to remove any of the excess (which is also recommended) but instead rinsed off with water. Next time I will leave it on longer and try that method for added hydration. While I didn’t notice a big difference in appearance, my skin felt good. Really, really good. I can’t wait to use this more in the coming months!

The Jigott Angel’s in the Sky Lotus Real Ampoule Mask claims to brighten and calm skin. This one includes lotus extract, cucumber, pearl, and potato - another first for me! The scent, hmmmm. This does have added fragrance as well, and it was sweet, somewhat floral like I imagine what a lotus flower would smell like. It wasn’t overwhelming. The fit, not bad. A couple of snips around the eye area. It actually fit really well on the lower half of my face. The serum was pretty drippy and as I added the remainder in the packet, it was a little messy.

 

Left this one on over JayJun’s Green Tea Eye Gels for about 25 minutes before it started to dry. Only a slight tack remained, though my forehead felt a little dry. After reading about the ingredients I see that lotus is supposed to help control serum production, so maybe this wasn’t the best match for a heavy duty moisture maskπŸ˜†. Still, pleasant to use but wouldn’t go out of my way to repurchase.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Suqqu is very nice @eshoe.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Their blushes look so pretty, @itsfi, though I’ve never tried them. I found out about the brand here from @Mochapj’s posts. Their brushes look incredibly soft, too!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The aesthetics of the brand (and the quality) are great. Their brushes are nice too @eshoe

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  I bought a bunch of those Jigott masks a while back and still haven't had the chance to try any of them. Too bad this one wasn't too impressive . I'm usually the least excited about floral masks - the black snail, caviar, placenta and honey are probably the ones I'll try first. πŸ˜‰ Hopefully the others are better - do you have more from the line?
