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, fit, adherence, mask type (hydrating, brightening, exfoliating, detox, sleeping, etc.) as well as your overall experience.

Most importantly: Would you repurchase it? 


Second most important: Have fun and merry masking!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I almost always forget the blanket stuff, @Weetart! Luckily this year, I was looking for something else in the closet and came across the bin with this so it could be enjoyed haha!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oooh, the print your blanket sounds fun @Weetart!!! Love blankets; they’re so comfy and cozy. β™₯️ Halloween snuck up on me this year. πŸŽƒπŸ‘» 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork Lots of great masks!  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Sounds like a lot of great masking! So happy you liked the Peripera mask! I'm trying to get through some earlier expiring masks before I get into these, but I may have to sneak a couple in soon, because I'm getting impatient πŸ˜‚

Love that Papa Recipe mask! Glad to hear it's a constant repurchase for you too! 
I agree with you on the Mitomo mask (as well as the others I've tried from the line) - great artwork, but seem more like filler-type masks.

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 πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚

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 ...fewπŸ˜‰ 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. πŸ€£

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 πŸ˜‰ This one was gifted to me from the lovely @mrsmouse! @ShortErica also posted a wonderful review about it just recently. πŸ˜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 πŸ€ͺ

 

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 πŸ‘

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! πŸ˜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 ☺️

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 πŸ˜‚
