To Post:

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. Don't forget to include a grade (thanks to @ShortErica for the idea) to help others along the way.


Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Hmmm, I tried this one a long time ago, but I don't remember it being sticky. ๐Ÿค” I think I'll have to refresh my memory on this one, because according to my notes, I really liked it ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป It's too bad it was so sticky for you, but I'm glad to hear the results were good despite that. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It did give me good results @Shosh85 & I think  drier skin types or if I used this after being in the sun all day or cold dry weather would appreciate or not even notice the stickiness. There are a few that have heavier serum like this one & I use those after sun days. I'll probably try these out again during the colder months. โ›„

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Yep, I forgot we have opposite skin types. ๐Ÿ˜‰My skin is dry or dehydrated year-round, so that could've definitely made a difference

โ€ƒOily in my case. Or shiny depending in how you spin it๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee sticky is not my favorite, glad it didn't last

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes but it did have good results @lmaster hopefully this is a mask that they discontinued only to make it better. {Like the coconut/chia}

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

P is for pink and pearl, and for @sonnydee's rainbow theme - sure, technically ROYGBIV doesn't recognize pink as a color of the rainbow, a point acknowledged by my niece, but she also told me that it should be. I see her point. lol.

Sheet Mask:

 

Spoiler
I know I've used and posted about a few sheet masks in The Creme Shop Correct Solutions line, but I can't recall if I've posted about the pink mask in particular. It seems like the masks in TCS Correct Solutions line is being phased out as I no longer see it available directly on TCS site. Each of the various masks in this line are/were geared to a specific skin concern, or concerns, in some cases. The Creme Shop Color-Correcting Pink Sheet Mask is a pink hued thick-leaning natural eucalyptus sheet mask that contains rose water and pearl essence, targets "sallow, lackluster skin", and claims to counter "olive undertones to reveal a beautifully balanced complexion." There's an absolutely divine and fresh rose cream scent that I find beautiful, but those sensitive to fragrance will want to pass on this mask. I actually pick up a fruity scent in this as well, one that reminds me of lychees, which makes the scent on this mask stand out from other rose-scented products. If there was an actual cream or lotion with this scent, I would definitely purchase it. โค๏ธ
 
In terms of performance, I'd say that the mask lived up to its claims in that my skin felt nicely hydrated and my complexion looked brighter, more fresh and awake, but I'm not certain if it did so in any sort of way that set it significantly apart from other sheet masks with similar claims and ingredients. It's suited for all skin types except that those sensitive to fragrance (or another ingredient in the mask) or who don't like thicker, heavier masks may want to pass on this one. Also, those with extremely dry or very dehydrated skin might not find the hydration enough, except for perhaps the warmest part of the year. That being said, I found this mask to work nicely on my skin and it's one that I would use again if I had another of it, which I think I may. 

Ingredients:

Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Betaine, Allantoin, Arginine, Sodium Hyaluronate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Pearl Extract, Hydroexthylceullulose, Carbomer, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance, Disodium EDTA

Lip Care:

Spoiler
KNS Beauty Supa Scrub and KNC Beauty Supa Balm are two lip care products that I've used before - the scrub is gentle enough that it can be used every day and with the cool weather looking like it's more inclined to stay moving forward, I need to be better about exfoliating my lips more regularly and I think this will be one of the primary lip scrubs I reach for through the end of the year.  The KNS Beauty Supa Scrub comes in a set with a super cute physical scrubbing product made of silicone and shaped like a pair of lips, for some extra exfoliation. I tend to use the lip scrub on its own because quite frankly, I've just been too lazy these days to reach for the physical scrubber. I know, I know, do better Fi! Work in progress, folks; work in progress. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The KNC Beauty Supa Balm has a rosy scent to it and it kinda tastes rosy to me too. It's made of moringa, cotton and kukui oils and shea butter so it glides effortlessly on the lips and keeps them feeling soft and moisturized. Sephora currently carries the brand's under eye and lip mask patches and I'd love to see the range expand to include more of their products, including the new sheet mask sets in this brand's portfolio. 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi thank you for mentioning the eye patches from KNC Beauty, I am very interested in those and will check them out!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  The color-correcting line seems like a nice one! I haven't tried this one yet, but I have tried the Orange and Green ones and loved them! So happy to hear it's a repurchase for you! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi @A color correcting mask sounds really interesting ! Anything that visibly  brightens is always nice ! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The SupaScrub and Balm combo sounds like a nice one, @itsfi. Maybe Sephora will expand their offerings from the brand soon. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I haven't seen that mask around, but it looks really nice. And to my eyes, the indigo/violet transition reads a bit pinkish anyhow. ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I have this mask @itsfi nice to know its enjoyable. What?! Pink is not in the rainbow? Not according to my mini, teeni too. But she out grew it. ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ’–

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi pink should definitely be in the rainbow!! Awesome masking

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

From last week, O is for Orchid

Spoiler
I feel like I've posted about the Sephora Collection Orchid Eye Mask (original version) and the Hask Orchid & White Truffle Moisture Rich Deep Conditioner. Both are ones I enjoy. It seems like the original version of the Sephora Collection masks are being phased out with the new clean line of masks. The orchid masks, including the orchid face mask, were challenging to find even before the clean line came out so they'll likely be difficult to find if they have not already sold out. I have backups of both the orchid face mask and eye masks but both are ones I would pick up if I happen upon them online.
 
New to me was the Sephora Collection Orchid Sleeping Mask has a light, pleasant scent and feels cool and refreshing on the skin. I love that these come in pods as it's very convenient for travel. and while I'm not sure I use this consistently enough to say anything about its anti-aging claims, I can say that this sleeping mask leaves my skin looking soft, smooth and hydrated the next morning. I have plenty of sleeping masks but this is one I'd repurchase (or pick up if Sephora has a clean version of it). It's probably my favorite of the house-brand sleeping masks. 
 
The rich consistency of the Hask Orchid & White Truffle Moisture Rich Deep Conditioner is more akin to a hair mask than a conditioner and it's how I opted to use this product - as a hair mask. There's a lot of product in these packs and since the formula on this particular on is so rich, I don't need a lot at all; one of these packs can last me 4-5, maybe 6 uses on my long-ish hair. I really just apply to the strands and ends, avoiding the crown so that reduces the amount of product I need as well. Because the product is on the richer, creamier side, it can have a tendency to weigh my hair down if I don't make sure to do an extra rinse to make sure I've gotten all the product out of my hair. Results-wise, my hair looks shiny and healthy and feels soft. It also smells amazing!!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Sounds like a nice trio! I haven't tried that specific hair mask, but I have tried a couple from the same brand and the results were great! ... and it's even better you can get so much use out of the packet! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, Iโ€™ve been happy too with the Hask hair masks / deep conditioners that Iโ€™ve used. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I donโ€™t need to use a lot of product because most of them are fairly rich in consistency. I find them to be very convenient to have on hand for longer trips as well; Iโ€™ll plan to keep one or two in my stash for when that happens again for me but in the meantime, Iโ€™ll be working through what I have in my stash. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi @Iโ€™m curious if you have found any changes in the shape of the eye mask. I feel like it is somewhat different than a couple of years ago, the shape at least. Well, maybe the material - I thought it was bio cell but after recently using a pair was surprised to find them cotton some other fiber maybe, but definitely not biocellulose)๐Ÿค”

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hmmm . . . ๐Ÿค” @eshoe, I think the very, very first SC eye mask I tried may have been made of biocellulose, come to think of it. Biocellulose costs more to produce than traditional cotton / paper masks, so I imagine that may have something to do with the change. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @itsfi, I couldnโ€™t remember for sure and thought you might have better notes than I. It is good in a way, though - to have peace with a product and move onโ˜บ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi you're really selling me on the orchid sleeping mask.... Just saying ๐Ÿ˜†
