Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Good luck with the other two ๐Ÿคž or maybe not, if your goal might be to not repurchase @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica unless they start selling them as singles that probably won't be too tempting to repurchase the set at this point

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ick that smell does not sound good @lmaster - sorry it was disappointing ! Hopefully the others will be better 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah it was not what I expected @Kim888 ๐Ÿ˜”

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Also from last week, figured it isn't in that same line of Mitomo so I'd make a different post, is the Diamond Essence - thanks for sending it to me @eshoe!

Since I forgot to mention it below, eye flaps - oh, I just don't understand. All folded down nicely but I'd rather just have a complete eye hole with no flap. The scent was baby powder with perfume for me. The fit seemed good - less folding and didn't get into my hair. I wore it 30 minutes. Shame on me - I did not look for brightness but the big yes! moment for me was that I had a hard pimple I had popped a few days earlier that left a little red dot by my upper lip that was driving me nuts and after wearing the mask, it looked smaller and less red. A-. I thought my face looked good but I was distracted by other results. I do wish the scent was less prominent on it. I kinda want to try it again and look for brightness. I still have a little extra serum in the pack - perfect for a morning use so maybe I can test if there is radiance from it. I'll share what I find or if someone else has used it, let me know what you saw for results - thanks!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Boo! to the scent, but yay! for your blemish looking better! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ

I know exactly what kind of scent you're talking about, and it's definitely not my favorite either ๐Ÿคฎ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The eye flaps @ShortErica ๐Ÿ™„ The last thing I want in my eyes is serum, yikes! You are a good sport, finding the silver lining in an otherwise marginal mask:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe thanks! It is nice getting to be picky so I don't need to buy them all.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica I've only tried one,, maybe two different variations of this mask. I would be curious to try the others. Good to know they are all pretty similar

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, I'm all for gotta try them all @lmaster. If only TJ Maxx/Marshalls sold a variety pack vs 10 of the same mask.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica I wish I had the time to just lay down with the eye flaps actually covering my eyes

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Seriously @lmaster @ShortErica who does that๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm embarrassed to say that I am one of those who does that.... @eshoe @lmaster @ShortErica  I'm totally weird I know!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Donโ€™t be embarrassed @Weetart- good for you!!! Itโ€™s a treat and you should be able to enjoy it as you wishโ˜บ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think if I didn't have 5&6 year old boys @Weetart @eshoe @ShortErica I would be able to.... Future goals!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Or lucky @Weetart! I tend to multi-task while I mask. ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe @lmaster seriously, if elected I will add an extra hour to every day just for masking with eye flaps! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Though I would propose eye flaps fold down from the top instead. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

For Masking Duel II Week I finally got into my stash of Mitomo masks. I was sent a variety in unicorn mail from @missjeanie@Shosh85 and @faeriegirl so I never felt tempted to buy 10 packs at Marshalls/TJ Maxx

 

Here's the variety for the week:

I'll start off with my rating B+. Being honest, I went in with not the best expectations. Seeing these at Marshalls/TJ Maxx, I googled and found a blog discussing each of the masks in this line and the review had really mixed results. Also seeing @quspork's recent review also tempered hopes to be wowed. After trying them, I really think the only big difference I could tell between them was the scent.

  • Collagen + Lithospermum - familiar floral scent - not rose, why can't I determine it, maybe it's a floral clean scent
  • Royal Jelly + Cherry Blossoms - very plain like paper plus a small hint of cherry, in the package I could get more of the cherry scent but as a more subtle scent it better person, I enjoyed the level on the mask itself
  • Gold + Cherry Blossoms - strong cherry with a hint of earthiness
  • Camellia Flower Oil + Matcha - I'm not sure what matcha smells like but I can see it as part that and part floral

 

So now with the similarities. The material seemed fine and folded where I need it to to make a decent fit though they did get into the hairline on the sides. Not that big of a deal but I don't have a small face so if you do, just something to note. I wore them all around 25 minutes (recommended time was 20-30) and thought it was the right amount. The nose area tended to get dry around the 15-20 minute mark. In general I had a very light tack that went away. I think that some had a little less or more though moral of the story is good after face feel as opposed to some super tacky masks - looking at you TCS Clear Up Skin. My face looked nice and fresh after. I didn't notice anything with fine lines or plumping or super moisturizing - not that they made any of those claims. There wasn't much extra serum but that's okay. Overall, I'd say it is a fine mask. I wouldn't purchase them. Definitely one of those where a 10 pack isn't for me. If one crossed my path, I would use it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Love that you dueled these! I unfortunately had bought a few 10 packs of these, and while they're decent filler masks, I definitely didn't need that many! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Glad you could try a nice variety of them without committing to 10 packs! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘


I really love the artwork on these!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I feel like sometimes 10 packs are risky but at least they will be used though not a favorite @Shosh85

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I am also cast a vote as the royal jelly and cherry one being nice, the relaxing factor and price point for the amount of hydration is why I think it would make a good filler mask. @ShortErica 

 

FYI matcha is a ground green tea powder.
