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.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@MCSSavvy  Awe, Im so sorry to hear what you've been going through! I've always been a very active, hyperactive person and had have many concussions in my life as a result - including one that was accompanied with 17 stitches on the forehead. I know migraines are pretty miserable, so I hope yours start getting better soon!

 

On another note, I love the concoction you threw together! Sounds like the perfect combo! 😃👌

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85   17 Stitches!!   Wow!   I've not quite done anything that spectacular.  I think the tie is between - broken tip of finger during midnight bowl at the uni or shard of glass in foot from dancing in the street.  Had to get a tetanus shot from that one.

 

Thanks for the thumbs up on my masking efforts!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@MCSSavvy so sorry you are having issues!! Your combination of products sound excellent

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I hope your head feels better soon @MCSSavvy migraines are the worst. 😰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh no, @MCSSavvy , I hope you're feeling much better now. I'm also a chronic migraine sufferer and can imagine the pain of that on top of a concussion. 😞 I hope you got some very good pain relievers (if your normal migraine med couldn't touch this one—assuming you take meds for them). ❤️ 

 

Your masking sessions sounds very nice. I kinda treat F-Balm as a lightweight moisturizer instead of a mask so, as soon as temperatures drop below freezing, my current bottle will go back into storage til spring. I'm glad you're maybe seeing good results from it, though! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  -  Thanks!  I've improved slightly but not by much.  I'm not sure what I'll do tomorrow when I go back to work since I look at a computer screen all day and spend a good portion of it on the phone.  The medication I'm on right now makes me sleepy / sleep so not quite conductive to work.  It keeps the pain at bay - particularly if I lie down in a dark room.  It's hard to get comfortable with the neck/back pain/spasms but I'm hoping it shall pass soon.  

I've tried F-Balm alone and while I like that it is lightweight I generally don't feel the right hydration balance if I use it after washing my face.  So I typically use it with a serum, serum and oil or with a moisturizer.  I think it will be interesting to see this winter how I use it.  You just reminded me of my YTTP  Superfood mask.  🙂 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Wishing you healing vibes @MCSSavvy . Sounds like you used some good masks.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Loretta55  -- Thank you. Much appreciated.  It's one of the worst migraine attacks I've had and I have chronic migraines. I've spent most the time in bed, in a dark room without tv, Netflix or music and little screen time.  I think the knot on my head is starting to go down a bit.   

Healing vibes are appreciated.  And it was a nice mask.  I think it will become a regular in the rotation.  🙂  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Taking a page from @Weetart's brilliant tie-in earlier this year for an O mask, I went with an O for oeufs (French for eggs). 🥚🥚
Eggs!!! (or for the letter of the week, ouefs!)Eggs!!! (or for the letter of the week, ouefs!)
Dear Packer Egg Ceramide Mask comes with two separate sheet masks, both fashioned after your traditional egg. One mask, the white mask, focuses on the egg white and the other, the yellow mask, shines a spotlight on the egg yolk. I used these masks earlier this week but having put up this post, I'm thinking an omelette might be on tonight's dinner menu. 🥚😉
Spoiler
 Egg White MaskEgg Yolk Mask
Material & Essence:Medium thick cotton mask saturated in slightly viscous essenceSoft, slightly thick-ish, stretchier yellow-hued cotton fiber heavily coated in a creamy, milky essence
Fit & Adherence:This mask seemed more narrow at the sides, which is actually better for me. About half an inch too long at the chin and slightly short at the forehead (though to be fair, I have a lot more forehead than the norm - lol). Holes for the eyes and mouth were very narrow and both required adjustments. Adherence was good.Similar to the egg white mask as far as width was concerned. Only slightly long at the chin and the holes for the eyes and mouth were slightly wider than the egg white mask, but I still made adjustments to the inner corners of the eyes for a better fit. Adherence was good.
Scent:Smelled slightly of a floral lotion. Fades away by the time the mask is smoothed over the contours of the face. Very faint scent, with perhaps a chemical scent. Not off-putting but not necessarily pleasant. Wears off almost immediately upon removal from packet.
Claim(s):Smooths rough, flaky skinNourishing, moisturizing and provides elasticity to the skin 
Performance & Results:Interestingly, about half way through my wear time, I felt light tingling on my right cheekbone for maybe a minute or two. I was paying extra attention after that and was prepared to remove the mask if the tingling continued but it (thankfully) stopped tingling. There was some essence remaining after I removed the mask but my skin absorbed it pretty quickly. My skin felt soft, smooth, hydrated and bouncy / plump. I felt a slight tingling in my lower leftside of my chin at around minute 3, but it didn't linger longer than a minute. Results-wise, oooouuuhh! This one will be nice for those with dehydrated or dry skin, or those looking for a nourishing mask on a cold night. My skin felt very moisturized after removing and I thought I might be able to forego moisturizer. That wasn't the plan but I ended up falling asleep shortly after removing the mask and without applying mymoisture (eek!). To my great surprise, when I looked in the mirror this morning, my skin looked and felt moisturized, without any dry patches and without any feeling of dryness or tightness.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

What a fun selection @itsfi ! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @Weetart! And, thank you for doing the O for oeufs theme first. 🥚😀

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Gudetama is so cute! His bare little booty always cracks me up!

 

So happy to hear the sheet masks turned out wonderfully despite the tingling! Is it something you'd repurchase? I can totally see how this session would make you hungry for an omelette! 😉😋🍳🥚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, I would repurchase the mask - it looks like it's currently out of stock at the moment, which is probably better for keeping me on the straight and narrow when it comes to getting through what remains of my stack of pre-2020 sheet mask. 😂 Love Gudetama. 💛 Dear Packer should do a special edition collab of this mask with Gudetama! I mean, no one asked me, but I'm just sayin'! 🤣

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi oh my gosh,,, super cute theme!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @lmaster😁 I'm coming to terms with the fact that the vast majority of my themes for masking involve food. Hahahaha! 🤣 I can't figure out whether I draw inspiration for a masking sesh based on the food item, or if the mask I choose makes me hungry for a particular food. 😂🤣😂 At this point though, regardless of which came first, I see it as I get to mask and I get to eat. Win-win! 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  - You are far braver than I.  I looked at the package and thought nope -- love eggs just can't imagine an egg based mask on my face.  Immediate thought - the boiled egg smell.  Sorry you had the bad sensation on your face.  Must say the first little package was quite thou.

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). 😂🤣😂 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

🤣🤣🤣  The thought of trying a mask again just to see if it has a boiled egg smell cracks me up. Pun intended!! @itsfi   😅😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sorry about the tingling, @itsfi, hopefully is wasn’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.
