Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi alrighty then!! Lol biocellulose it is 😆

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Lol @lmaster! We shall see. I still think it’s very similar to a hydrogel mask. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

R is for rice 🍚 




Leaders Labotica Skin Soft Mask ~ Rice


Material: Thin cotton


Serum: Clear, watery


Scent: sort of a mix of baby powder and floral, but it was light and not too noticeable while the mask was on.


Fit: Just a little too long at the chin

Wear Time: About a half hour.


Tack: Very light and lasted less than 10 minutes


Results: My face was noticeably brighter and felt soft and smooth and comfortably hydrated.


I wouldn't say this is a favorite, but it did sure do a great job brightening! I'd definitely use again, but the scent is what's holding me back from repurchasing.



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hmmm when I read your scent description it was easy to determine this would be a pass, @Shosh85. Baby powder and oil are a couple of notes I will happily pass!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  I'm pretty sure I haven't smelled anything like it before. Definitely not my favorite and not what I would expect from a rice mask, but at least it was light! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 baby powder and floral 🤔 I'm very curious

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Yeah, it definitely had a unique scent! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, great review set up. I love the thin material on these Labotica sheet masks! ❤️ I also really like rice as a brightening ingredient. 😍 It's been a while since I used this one; will have to try it again to see about the scent - the combination of baby powder and floral isn't something my nose generally likes so I understand that being  a 'no' for you with this mask.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I think this is a nice line of masks, but I'd consider them more filler-type. If the scent was just a little better on them they'd be pretty perfect. I definitely loved the brightening effect from this one! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, the longer I mask, or the more masks I try, the category of filler masks expands. I think I’m getting pickier  more highly selective. 😆 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi @heartsmyface  EXACTLY! These were some of the first masks I tried and I definitely feel like I liked them a lot more then. Now that I've tried close to 1,000 masks, its getting harder and harder to find ones that really impress me 😂 YES! We sure are masking connoisseurs! Love that!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi @Shosh85   ^^THIS!!!  I was way easier to please in the beginning.  I notice I am also easier to please after taking a break from masking.   We’re just masking connoisseurs.  ☺️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

YES!!!! @heartsmyface @Shosh85 And now I have proof!!! Thank you, hearts!!! 

Masking connoisseurs. LOVE it! 💖

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

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😄

Masks this YTD:


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!
