Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yessss, I'm right there with you on the impatience for certain masks, @Shosh85. I reorganized all of mine by expiration back at the beginning of the year and have been good for the most part, but now I'm down to the last few that need to be used before the end of the year and every time I go to pull one- there's a newer one that I really want to grab instead!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Yeah, it's all the 10 packs I bought that are killin' me - especially the ones I feel "meh" about. I'm telling myself no more 10 packs unless I've already tried it and know I love it. Another reason TJ Maxx and Marshall's are dangerous places for me to shop ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork Great reviews on the masks!  The papaya one seems interesting. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork hanalei lip balms are so good. I have a ...few๐Ÿ˜‰ they are thick like the bite OG version

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This is just the kind of comment I need to push me over the edge into building a cart, @sonnydee


So, I thank you even if my wallet does not. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Thanks for the reviews. The cool lime looks really appealing. I know I've tried at least one of the papa recipe honey masks, but I'm not totally sure if it was the original. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The lime was definitely a nice refreshing mask, @PrettyPaint and I love most of the Papa Recipe honey masks. The honey butter was a favorite, but I think that version was discontinued ::sad face::

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Another Jelly mask ๐Ÿ˜‰ This one was gifted to me from the lovely @mrsmouse! @ShortErica also posted a wonderful review about it just recently. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ




Kina Cosmetics Jelly Essence Nourishing Face Mask


Material: Thin and meshy cotton


Serum: Thick jelly essence - I loved it!


Scent:  Light and fruity. My first impression was that it smelled mostly like cucumber with maybe a hint of watermelon - but neither of those are listed in the ingredients (and I remember ShortErica said she thought it smelled floral), so I must just be crazy. Floral would make more sense ๐Ÿคช


Fit: The fit was a little off-  A bit too wide by the temples, little too long at the chin/jawline and the mouth hole was a bit too big. Despite all the smooshing and folding I did, the mask was pretty comfortable to wear and adhered well


Wear Time: About a half hour


Tack: Kinda sticky and lasted about 30 minutes. Not ideal, but it doesn't usually bother me.


Results: There was a little bit of pilling, but my skin felt nicely moisturized and hydrated with a little bit of plumpness.


Repurchase? Maaaybe - the results were nice, but I wasn't too crazy about the pilling. I definitely wouldn't hesitate to use again though! I think I'd agree with ShortErica - I wouldn't pick it up if it was in a pack, but I would if it were being sold in singles. I liked that Sodium Hyaluronate, Caviar extract and Cica was so high up in the ingredients. It's also great when put in the fridge beforehand ๐Ÿ‘ 





Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I liked this one @Shosh85 but there's some better jelly ones out there

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  I need to add this to my try list!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ather  Definitely a great one to try if you like jelly! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Jelly sheet masks are always the bomb @Shosh85 ! I wish I could say the same for jelly sleeping masks... as I have expressed repeatedly over reviews. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  I agree, I definitely love the jelly! Not sure if I've tried a jelly sleeping mask before - if you could remind me, what is it that you don't like about them?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ha ha I am laughing at your comments on the scent, @Shosh85! Sometimes I second guess myself when others describe a scent completely different from what I experienced.   Just an excuse to try it again, lol โ˜บ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Haha! Yeah, sometimes the scent can be tricky! I definitely feel like this one deserves another sniff test ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ahhhhh, a jelly essence sheet mask @Shosh85. A dream for those of us with dry or dehydrated skin! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Yup, absolutely! This one definitely felt great on my dry skin - the thick jelly is wonderful! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 now that you mention it, I got some pilling too but mostly on my neck. Weird about the scent difference but I feel like I'm smelling floral everything lately ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  I feel like I need to try this again, just to see if I smell something different. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I definitely loved the jelly serum! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
