Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork It really is nice! So perfect for dry skin ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

So excited to do the theme - Gross/Odd/Unusual Ingredients! Last time I was busy playing the expiration game but this time it's spirulina and snail and donkey, oh my!

 

Thanks to @quspork for the donkey and Leaders snail! I used the donkey one first

The scent was not something I expected and very interesting - almost like a hot cinnamon candy scent. The serum was creamy lotion-like but most stuck in the package vs on the mask. Because of that, the mask wasn't moist enough to stick on face. Solution: cut open and apply serum on mask to make it wet and stick to my face. I also put some on my neck. I wore it 20 minutes. Due to my uneven excess application, some areas of face had serum remaining. I massaged it in and my face felt soft and moisturized. I had no tack. After I applied eye cream but not moisturizer and my face felt nice. I think the scent and needing to transfer the serum onto the mask make the experience a B+ but I'd be up for doing a donkey mask again. My skin was definitely moisturized and I liked the serum, just wish more of it was on the mask to begin with.

Next is Leader snail. You really can tell the difference between the lines. Insolution is superior to the Mediu line I picked up at TJ Maxx/Marshalls

This had a mostly plain scent on the mask itself but floral notes when smelling package. It was dripping out of the package so I tried to apply it quickly. It had a good fit, just some slight smooshing by the chin. I wore it 20 minutes then put it on my neck. It left a slight tack. The tack remained at least 10 minutes but didn't touch face for a while (hour) and it was gone then. So somewhere in between it disappeared which is good. My face looked even and nice. The nice fit, mild scent masks are the ones I tend to enjoy most. I wish I felt to see how long the tack really lasted. A-

Next was spirulina from @lmaster - definitely not something I've run across before

I peaked at @Shosh85's review. I wanted to not be biased but I was too curious. It had a very good fit for me. I think I got more floral + grassy. I wore it 30 minutes then accidentally 20 min on neck. My skin felt hydrated but intense is a stretch for its claims. I'd say I enjoyed it because I didn't notice the scent during wear but it was strong in the package. Nothing to run out and buy but I'd use one again. B+

I tend to buy 10 packs and then not try them until later on, you know, too many masks problems. I figured it was a good time to throw in the Yadah Royal Snail I bought not too long ago

So I have enjoyed most things Yadah (except you nose strip!), though not all may be my preference but I can appreciate them. When I saw this in the store similar to the Collagen, Aloe, and Rose I was like okay, break the no buy, this should be good. Collagen was my favorite, aloe was fine, and I'm not big on rose but I liked it well enough. So going in my expectations were high.

So talk about disappointment when the smell out of the package was herbal/medicinal with floral. Luckily it didn't linger during wear/I had to search for it when the mask was on to notice it. The mask did have a good fit but touched my hairline lightly by ears. There were a few folds around chin. There was a generous amount of extra serum I used the next day on face and entire top half of body. I think the fit is just like the others so the scent and the lack of helping wrinkles was a let down. My guess is collagen is still my favorite followed by aloe then not sure between rose and this one - I will showdown in the future. B+ and I'll use the pack (doing the showdown will help with motivation) but will not repurchase.

I took another snail out of a Masks on the Move box. I am familiar with the Frudia blueberry, grape, etc. line but this one was intriguing with its different style

It was a very plain scent with the package having a tiny bit of floral. This had a similar good fit to the Yadah, and touched my hairline slightly by the ears. I wore it 20 minutes then on my neck. There was a slight tack. My skin looked fine and I used moisturizer. I did get pilling after applying moisturizer so not sure if I didn't let serum absorb enough. I don't know that I'd seek this out but I would use it again. Points for good fit and mild scent so I'm leaning A-.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Glad you were able to try them, @ShortErica! I do agree with you about wishing more of the serum was on the actual mask with the Elizavecca one. That seems to happen (for me at least) with some of the thicker cream serums. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork I'd say I've only tried a handful of masks with thicker serum. Good to know it's typical. It has been so fun trying so many different masks this year thanks to all my sweet BIC friends. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Nice mix of masks, @ShortErica@quspork sent me that mask last year and I can almost guarantee that had it been labeled anything other than โ€˜Donkey Steamโ€™ I probably would have left it on more than a few minutes๐Ÿ˜‚ My stomach is just not that strong. The serum was fantastic, though. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

HAHA, @eshoe! It can be hard to get over some of the more squeamish ingredients! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

You have helped ease my fears a little bit, @quspork ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, the creamy lotion serums are very nice @eshoe. Next time have you daughter open the mask so you dont know what it is ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

She would probably pick that one out because it looks interesting @ShortErica. She is not squeamish at ALL๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

excellent theming @ShortErica .  I didn't even realize there was a Yadah snail in that line.  I used the snail one from Frudia the other day and remember thinking that it was good, but not amazing.  I wonder if I'm getting a lot harder to impress with sheet masks lately?  A lot of them fall into the 'fine' category, but aren't anything wowing like this one. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Agree @missjeanie. There are so many where it is an enjoyable masking session and the mask was nice and I'd use again but don't feel motivated that I need to buy it. That's probably a good thing since I went wild last year.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Great reviews and I love the masks you used for theme @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @lmaster!

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.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

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
