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.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Looks like a good, low-maintenance mask. I find the packaging really appealing too.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Yup, exactly! This one is a nice one! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Still working on my Q masks...This time, Q is for a sheet mask that quietly quenches dehydrated or dry skin and is quintessentially "Papa Recipe quality", making it, without question, one to keep in the queue! ๐Ÿ˜

Spoiler
Mask Material, Essence & Noteworthy Ingredients 
Papa Recipe Bombee Pepta Ampoule Honey Mask Pack is one of two new sheet masks to the Papa Recipe Bombee Honey family and, from my perspective it is a welcome addition to a collection already full of fantastic masks. The thin, soft material of the mask is Hanji,  which is traditional handmade paper made from a mulberry tree native to Korea. It is thoroughly saturated, though neither dripping or heavy, with a clear, ever-so-slightly-viscous essence bearing a light, sweetened honey scent that reminds me of a less sweet, more toned down version of the fragrance in the Secret Key Honey Banana Mask Pack that has sadly been discontinued.  The essence is chockful of wonderful skincare ingredients, including extracts of honey, propolis and royal jelly, five forms of hyaluronic acid, copper tripeptide, ceramide, panthenol, centella asiatica and licorice root, to name a few. 
 
Adherence & Fit 
Adherence on this mask was near perfection and fit easily followed suit with a few, very minor adjustments - I took off about 1/8" from the chin, jawline and placed the sliver of a strip over my forehead to make it reach to my hairline. Width was just a smidge wide at the temple, too small to even bother over. I made a few small incisions to the corners of the eyes and mouth holes to make the mask lay and wear more comfortably and to ensure that none of the essence went into my eyes or mouth. I also deepened the slits for the sides of the nose so the material would lay better along the sides.
 
Performance & Results 
I left the mask on for my usual half hour but there's so much essence in this mask that I probably could have easily kept it on for an additional 20, maybe even another 30, minutes without issue. For as much essence remains after removing the mask, it does absorb quickly and smoothly into the skin and once it's been fully absorbed, my skin feels soft, bouncy, hydrated and moisturized, so moisturized, in fact, that I didn't feel the need to apply my moisturizer until just before I went to bed. A definite mask for the dry or dehydrated skin types among us! ๐Ÿ˜ This is one mask that I would happily use again, and again, and again. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Love all the q's! Haha! I think you hit your Q quota. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Oooh, I want to try the new ones soon! This one sounds wonderful, especially the scent! *sigh* I miss that Secret Key sheet mask - it was one of my most favorites. Just another reason I need to try this one ๐Ÿ˜‰ Glad you enjoyed it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, lol! I had planned on using this one during H week and P week and for one reason or another never got around to it. I was determined to make it work and get in whatever Q I could come up with! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

 

I love that Secret Key mask! So good! Iโ€™m bummed itโ€™s been discontinued. Who makes these decisions?!! ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This sounds like a great mask for winter @itsfi ! Love the ingredients list also! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes and yes @keana1! My skin can't help but be happy after using this mask! ๐Ÿ˜ Hope you and your family are well! ๐Ÿค—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Great to hear @itsfi ! We are well and healthy! Iโ€™m unable to post pictures in the BIC ( again! ) which is a complete bummer ( Iโ€™ve tried the website and the app and nothing is working, Iโ€™ll try again later today...) I hope that you and your family are also doing well ! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi this literally sounds like the perfect mask!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It is @lmaster! I'm very happy that I decided to pick it up, even though I was on a sheet mask no buy at the time! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿคฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Used this Sunday night  to finish my forgotten mask week..

I have forgotten to take a pic of the mask but i want to post while i still remember the details so screenshot! 

The Creme Shop Chia sheet mask

 

Fit?this mask was thicker than the usual CS masks. It was also smaller. I ended up ripping off the below nose part it was really wide, they have been really plaguing me lately ๐Ÿ˜’

 

Smell? Typical sheet mask scent but strong

 

Consistency?very saturated & the serum was sticky at first . Not tacky but plain sticky! I skipped my night moisturizer because I doubt it wouldve helped..๐Ÿ˜ณ

 

Ease of use?this is one that i did watch the clock. Its thicker so I did have to press it down a few times. I like low maintenance masking๐Ÿ˜‚

 

Would I  purchase/try again? I do have more &, the results were good, my skin felt good waking up & I wasn't sticky anymore. I hope,if they even make this one anymore, that the mask itself improved.

โ€ƒ

But i do love the coconut/chia 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

My skin likes the chia seed mask @sonnydee so I'm looking forward to trying the coconut chia one. Sounds like it would be hydrating and moisturizing! ๐Ÿ˜

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 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85

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
