Each week features a different theme, as well as a letter of the alphabet for coming up with new masking ideas. 


Please include the brand and name of the mask you are trying out, as well as a photo if possible. Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase.

Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@MCSSavvy, I would consider myself a scaredy-cat when it comes to a lot of things, but for whatever reason, I'm fairly adventurous when it comes to sheet masks and skincare (well, for skincare, if it passes the patch test). ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ Fortunately, the tingling sensation was only temporary; it was just odd that when and where I felt it. Oh, interesting you bring up the boiled egg scent. I know I mentioned that one of the masks reminded me of a chemical scent; your comment triggered my thinking of the sulfur smell typically associated with hard boiled eggs but that wasn't the chemical scent I picked up. Interesting. Hmmm... I may need to pick up another of these masks sooner rather than later to figure out what that scent was.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ  The thought of trying a mask again just to see if it has a boiled egg smell cracks me up. Pun intended!! @itsfi   ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sorry about the tingling, @itsfi, hopefully is wasnโ€™t too uncomfortable. It sounds like a pretty nice mask despite that, though - especially the yolk part! The mini egg reminds me of Dillydelight.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, the tingling was temporary and didn't cause any irritation or negative reaction so it's just a minor and fleeting inconvenience. It's nice that this pack came with 2 separate masks, all for $5. Not too bad.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Mmm an omelette sounds amazing. I love that little egg guy. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Aw yes! Gudetama!!! ๐Ÿ’› That little egg makes me smile; and he's a good reminder to take it easy. ๐Ÿคฃ What kind of omelette would you like @Samtian? I'll whip one up and send it your way! ๐Ÿ˜‰

L is for Leaders

Leaders Mediu Amino Clearing Mask

This is a thin, meshy cotton sheet mask that was saturated with serum and had a slightly strong floral scent, but it was tolerable enough. The fit was pretty good - a little too long at the chin and the sides of the forehead were a little too wide. The adherence was good except for the extra length at the chin that popped up a couple times. I removed it after a half hour and patted in the remaining serum. There was some light tackiness that stuck around for about 45 minutes. My face looked a little brighter and felt lightly moisturized and soft and smooth.

 

This mask was ok. The results were good but it just didn't wow me and I didn't love the scent. I'd use it again but probably wouldn't repurchase.

 

Side note: I find it funny that a lot of masks, (like this one) has the word "ingredients" written in English, but the actual ingredient list is in a different language ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค” Here's the list in English:

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I agree, these Leaders are something I'd use but not purchase again @Shosh85.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, it's so interesting how different masks within the same line can vary, though it makes sense and speaks to how ingredients and the combination of them (and fragrance, too) play into how a mask performs for us. At least you know now that this is not a repurchase - sometimes I think with all the sheet masks we have and want to try out that knowing ones that are not repurchase-worthy can be such a good thing - for our wallets as well as our collections. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I feel like I liked these more when I first tried them, and don't remember the scent being as strong. I don't know if I'm just getting pickier to scent or if the scent just wasn't as strong in the first masks for some reason. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, I think we become more discerning and particular the more masks we try. Our preferences change too; and seriously, we have to be that way - there are just too many masks to choose from. ๐Ÿ˜‚ You're not picky, just discerning and selective. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It's what makes you the masking aficionado that you are. ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 oh I'm so sorry this mask wasn't a winner for you ๐Ÿ˜”

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Well they can't all be! Thank goodness for that! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Most scents in masks are tolerable if they arenโ€™t too strong, @Shosh85. doesnโ€™t sound like this was one of them! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Yeah, this wasn't the strongest scent I've experienced from a mask, but it was almost headache-inducing ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh yikes @Shosh85. The longer I mask, the less inclined Iโ€™ve been to love a laundry-scented masks. Especially if you use scent-free detergent, would that be annoying! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Itโ€™s good it didnโ€™t wow you. Because of the scent was only tolerable it would need to knock off 20 years for it to be worth it ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ather  Haha! Exactly. If the results were wowing enough, I might be able to look past the scent!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I feel the same way about this one, @Shosh85 - it's ok, but not the best Leader's has to offer. For a clearing mask, I much prefer their AC Clear one. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Yes! The AC-Free one is actually my favorite from the line so far! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘

Neogen Dermalogy Super Hydra Aqua Capsule Mask

This is a two step mask. With the first step you are to snap the big capsule at the top of the packaging, releasing the ampoule onto the mask. You are then supposed to massage the package a little bit to ensure it's evenly distributed.

The second step is the mask. It is thin cotton and had a light scent that was like a mix of clean & fresh and floral. The fit was just ok - it was about 1.5 inches too long at the chin, not quite wide enough by the ears and the mouth hole was a bit too small. The adherence was great and it was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. There was some light tack that stuck around for about 15 minutes after removing the mask. My face felt soft, hydrated and moisturized and had a nice glow.

I really enjoyed this mask and would definitely repurchase. I feel like this one would especially be great for the winter/colder months.
