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). ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅš
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. ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿ˜‰
 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. ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿ˜€

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! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿณ๐Ÿฅš

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. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Love Gudetama. ๐Ÿ’› Dear Packer should do a special edition collab of this mask with Gudetama! I mean, no one asked me, but I'm just sayin'! ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

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

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @lmaster๐Ÿ˜ I'm coming to terms with the fact that the vast majority of my themes for masking involve food. Hahahaha! ๐Ÿคฃ 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. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ At this point though, regardless of which came first, I see it as I get to mask and I get to eat. Win-win! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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). 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˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Strawberries, cake and ice cream!


Besides the Perricone MD Cocoa Moisture mask, Skinfoodโ€™s Black Sugar Strawberry is one that is almost entirely too tempting, and just might be good enough to eat. Thank you @itsfi for this weekโ€™s theme which has been very, very enjoyable ๐Ÿ˜Š

The Kocostar Waffle Mask Ice Cream ๐Ÿฆ is the third one from this line that Iโ€™ve tried. I had high hopes for the scent, as the strawberry and honey versions were deliciously scented. This was ok. I didnโ€™t catch anything ice cream-like, though someone with a better nose than I might ( @sonnydee have you tried this one yet?). The fit, feeling and generous amount of thick, clear serum were a treat for my skin, though. This line has impressed me much more so than any other Kocostar masks, and will most definitely go on the repurchase list. 

Finally, a bit of Glossierโ€™s Birthday Balm dotcom, my favorite scent of those Iโ€™ve tried. It is more like a salve in my mind than a gloss, and has a true vanilla cake scent (does not taste as good as it smells, sadly๐Ÿ˜†). I am curious about the new fig scent, but because Iโ€™m not wild about the texture, itโ€™s easy for me to pass. Overall, a fun masking for a Friday night!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe You inspired me to grab a set of the waffle masks and they just came in this weekend- can't wait to try them out!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ooooh I canโ€™t wait to hear about them, @quspork! I hope youโ€™ll like them๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I'm really interested in the waffle masks!!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I have a hunch you would like them @lmaster they feel different than any other mask! And of course, the yummy scents for the most partโ˜บ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm have not tried any of the other waffle masks yet @eshoe maybe when the weather turns your choices!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I will be interested to hear which one is your favorite, @sonnydee!:)
