Didn’t think I would post this, so no fancy photo. It’s a three-peat for “R

Fell in love with the Beltune Real Eucalyptus Oil Mask the first time I tried it, I was sick and the Vicks scent was reassuring. The second time, seemed like everything was off. Last night, I used my last one as apparently it expires sometime this month. The scent wasn’t as significant. The fit, perfect. Kept it on for at least 30 minutes before it started to dry. No remaining tack. I don’t think I’ve tried another mask from this brand and now I want to. It’s probably too late😄

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, sounds perfect for when you are sick @eshoe. I remembered to use my steam eye masks but forgot about the Kina I what to breathe better one that is eucalyptus - that would have been a good opportunity. I'll try to remember in case I'd see the brand to let you know.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I’ve tried the Kina one, @ShortErica! I do think the fit on the Beltune is better for my face shape, but I would use the Kina again. The scent is just so soothing.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Why is it too late?? @eshoe did they stop making masks?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster it went OOS shortly after I repurchased a couple. Wish I would have bought more, but I’m sure another one will come along for me to 💕 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It's always so nice to have a perfect fitting mask. I think I have one of these masks from a long ago Facetory subscription box so good to know about the scent and the expiration date @eshoe😬 I thought I used all of my sub masks up already but it looks like I'll have to get to using this one sooner rather than later. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That’s where I first discovered this one, @itsfi. I looked for it again just now and it seems to still be OOS. The set looked like it would have been wonderful to try!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  This definitely sounds like great mask to use if you have a cold! Why do you think it might be too late to find others from the line? I'd be interested in hearing how the others compare to this one. Glad you enjoyed it!

 Look at all those masks! I'm impressed you got it all in one picture!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 after I last purchased this, I went back to buy more and they were OOS. I just need to dig in a bit to find others from the brand/this line, which I haven’t yet done. I think it would be worth the time, though!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

A eucalyptus mask does sound like it be good to have around for that inevitable cold, @eshoe - glad to hear it worked out nicely for you!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I’ve been saving it in case I got a cold, @quspork. But with being away from people so much, it’s hard to catch anything! I’ve been on the lookout for a similar mask since this one has been discontinued.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think I could actually get behind a vick's vapo sheet mask of some sort, @eshoe. I'm not sure how the ingredients would work out skin wise, but it seems like that would be so nice when you're laying on the couch with a stuffy nose and headache... 🤔

 ugh I just wrote out my reviews and it just reloaded when i added the photos.  

nomakura hello kitty infrared eye patches- sticker type patches that claim to increase circulation and decrease puffiness by draining the sinuses.  There was a four minute delay before I felt a warming sensation.  I didn’t notice any real depuffing but my under eyes feel moist and look plump.  Oh the instructions say to apply toner before sticking them on cause the stickers are strong.  I didn’t do that and they still came off easily.  I won’t reuse them ‘up to six times’ like they say you can.  I’m too much of a germaphobe.

Etude house demask rose mask- sheer cotton mask dripping in thin heavily scented rose serum.   It confirmed well and was very cooling.  My skin feels happy and plumped up and a little tacky.

purederm shiny and soft foot peeling mask- smells heavily of alcohol.  The booties fit my feet well.  There isn’t a whole lot of acidic serum like the babyfoot ones have but my feet still feel well coated.  It will take 7-10 days to see the final results so tbc. 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface the eye patches sound really nice!! I don't believe I've ever used some that had a warming sensation

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface  I've been wanting to try out the Purederm foot peels - would love an update when the actions starts!

Glad you liked the Etude House mask! There are some pretty decent masks in this line. I think my most favorite so far is the snail one!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  we’re two days in and my feet are dry and crinkly in the arches.  No peeling yet but they’ve got that sheen of chemical burned skin.  This is when it gets difficult to resist the urge to moisturize.   The wait continues. 

oh I love the snail one as well!  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I can't wait to hear how the Purederm foot masks go, @heartsmyface. It's always interesting to see how different ones work out. How long did you have this pair on for?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork   I did the whole 90 minutes and maybe a bit longer?  My feet are feeling pretty dry today which is a good sign.  The waiting part is the worst.  I want instant gratification 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I’m with you on reusing masks @heartsmyface! I tried the Charlotte Tilbury sheet mask that says it can be reused up to 3 times and it was hard enough getting myself to use it a second time for the sake of trying it out. 😫 I would go nuts 6 times!!! It is interesting though that the eye patch would presumably heat up all 6 times. I don’t know about that. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 

 

I like the EH 0.2mm line. 💕 They’re ones I consider simple (in a good way), reliable sheet masks and there are a few from the collection that my skin responds well to. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi   Did the CT one perform as nicely the second time round?  The eye patches are still sitting on my night table so there’s still a chance to reuse them... I’m a little curious.  Maybe I’ll try them out on my arm to see if they reheat.  My elbows would likely appreciate done love.  
The ET Collagen masks are my favorite from the line!   I agree they’re slightly better than filler masks but at filler mask prices.  They’re a pretty solid brand overall.  I am trying to recall if I ever used a dud product by them and nothing is coming to mind.  I didn’t like their micellar water but then I don’t like micellar waters in general.
