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, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase.

Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Looks like a nice round of masks! 

I really love the masks with milky/creamy serum and the Donkey Steam mask is one I've always wanted to try! I'm super intrigued by your description of the scent - I think I'm even more interested in trying it now ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿค”


I plan to do a showdown between those 3 Yadah too! I think I remember liking the Aloe the most, but it would be good to refresh my memory. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I was so excited when I saw that Yadah Royal Snail mask, but that scent is kind of a bummer. I definitely would be more excited and motivated to buy it if you had said it smelled like honey! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I know I can be picky about scents like I don't like tea tree at all so maybe someone else would appreciate it @Shosh85. I was hoping for honey with whatever snail is (usually I feel they do some floral fragrance with it). Now I want to compare them for results. I've been not analyzing my before and after faces as much as I used to.

 

And yeah, I was so not expecting that scent for the donkey one. I'll be interested in what you think.

Horse fat for gross week ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿด

Mediheal Horse Oil Proatin Mask

This is a medium thickness cotton sheet mask that was saturated with a white, creamy and milky serum. It had both mouth and eye flaps. The scent was pretty pleasant- sort of fresh & clean with a little floral. The fit was ok - a little too long at the chin and not quite wide enough by the ears. It was comfortable to wear, though the extra length at the chin needed some occasional re-patting. I left it on for about a half hour. After removing the mask, I pressed in the leftover serum and it had a tacky feel that lasted about 15 minutes. My face felt great - refreshed, plumped, moisturized, hydrated and had a nice glow.

 

I really enjoyed this one! Besides the horse fat (6th ingredient) it also has several other ingredients I love as well. Unfortunately it has fragrance halfway down which isn't a deal breaker for me, just something I try to avoid when I can.

I definitely wouldn't hesitate to use again though, especially during the colder months. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ahhhh @Shosh85, I remember using a horse fat mask a couple years ago, or maybe it was more than that, and my skin being very happy with me for choosing it. I've come to conclude that if most people find an ingredient 'gross' or not something they'd really be up for trying, most likely, my skin will loooove that ingredient. Oh yes. That seems to be the pattern. 

 

By the way, I love that the brand wants us to know that this is made "with Jeju" horse oil. ๐Ÿคฃ As opposed to horse oil from another part of South Korea, or anywhere else for that matter. South Korea is on my list of places I'd like to visit and Jeju Island is one of the spots I'd like to go to while there because well, I feel like I need to experience it, what with all the reference to it in sheet masks and skincare products I use and love. ๐Ÿ˜ My list of places to visit consists primarily of skincare places and food. I know, I'm so predictable! Hahaha! There are other cultural hot spots on that list too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Most definitely gross, @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜† But isnโ€™t that how it works...those masks are the ones that do wonders for the skin.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Love this mask, @Shosh85- I don't know what it is about horse oil but my skin just adores it. Glad to hear it was a good one for you too!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Happy to hear you liked this one too! So far the masks I've tried with horse oil have been really great! Would definitely love to try more ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿด

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

First reaction: Ewwww thats gross!  but glad it was worth having fat. On. Your. Face. @Shosh85 ๐Ÿด

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Haha! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ I really do love the ingredient! .... it's not like I put straight up fat on my face or anything ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I'm loving the results you got from this one!  I haven't tried horse fat as of yet, but maybe someday!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  I have loved the horse fat masks I've tried so far and would definitely like to try and find more! .... I'll have a nice lil' curated collection of horse fat and salmon egg masks! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I feel like I'm supportive of this... but... if you managed to find a salmon egg and horse fat mask all in one... now that I'd be extra excited for!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Oh my goodness. I haven't tried a horse oil mask before, but I'm glad the scent was pleasant. It sounds like it was really effective in terms of moisturizing! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  I have really loved the horse fat masks I've tried so far! It definitely seems like a great ingredient for dry skin!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Don't know that I have any horse in my stash but definitely worth checking out @Shosh85 from your review.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  I've had great experiences with the ingredient so far! I've only tried 3 masks, but loved them all! It does seem like an ingredient more geared for dry skin, and I do try to save them for the colder months or just when my skin is feeling drier than usual.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Getting back into masking...and of course it was an Oozoo one. I don't like this brand lol. This was hard to get drained out, I couldn't even tell if it had. I ended up opening it and stabbing it with a knife just to make sure. But oh man. This mask had so much serum/cream stuff, I can't think of the word. It was dripping every where at a very fast rate. It even went up my nose!!! And my face looked rather greasy in the morning.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhh @Samtian, I'm so sorry about your experiences with these interactive masks. I have to say that I tend to just take a pair of scissors to many of these types of sheet masks - it's just easier that way, and better for my sanity sometimes. ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Well after an experience like this, I might have just given up masking altogether @Samtian ๐Ÿ˜‚ So sorry it was a bust, just goes to show one mask does not fit all!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe Haha it definitely solidified my view of the brand. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian Awe man, sorry these are giving you trouble! It's so much easier to just take a mask out of the package and slap it on your face. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ It's too bad it left you feeling greasy- I'm wondering if this one is just not for your skin type. ๐Ÿค”
