Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Love those thin hydrogel masks @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This was the thinnest, @lmaster! I wish they were less, I cringe at spending more than a few $ on a mask๐Ÿคจ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  I've never heard of Whamisa

but this mask sounds wonderful! I'll have to add this to my list - do you remember where you bought it?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think you would really like this one, @Shosh85. I found it on iHerb, they have the other two I mentioned as well. They carry a variety of k-beauty masks & other products, and ship fast!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Good to know! I'm pretty sure I've bought something from that site before ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The Whamisa mask sounds really lovely, @eshoe!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It really was, @quspork. Iโ€™ve been interested in calming/soothing masks more recently, and this one fit the bill nicely ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I had a hard time coming up with a "gross mask," but I really wanted to contribute. I don't personally find this gross because I like kimchi, but I could see how it may not seem that appealing (as well as the imagery on front)


Anyhow, I used Yadah's Daily Vegi Kimchi Mask. The advertised key ingredient is Bacillus/Cabbage Leaf Ferment Extract Filtrate. Don't worry - it definitely didn't smell like fermented cabbage. The smell was very light and pleasant, and I couldn't detect a kimchi smell. It fit my face quite well, which is always a pro. In terms of effects, it was very refreshing, comfortable to wear, and hydrating. I would definitely repurchase this one.



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

lol @PrettyPaint I saw the photo and thought it was a bacon mask with a veggie name.  I'm not a huge kimchi fan myself but it sure sounds better than the bacon mask I was envisioning!  I'll have to keep an eye out for this one, it actually sounds quite lovely. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Oh my goodness! Haha. Could you imagine a bacon mask? I think my entire face would break out if it contained bacon grease.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Some masks you want it to smell like the name and others not so much. Glad this one worked out so nicely @PrettyPaint!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica Totally true! ๐Ÿ™‚ I do wonder if there are any masks that actually have a savory food smell!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint this one sounds awesome!! Glad it didn't smell like cabbage!! ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  I really liked it! ๐Ÿ™‚ And yes, I'm definitely glad it didn't smell like spicy cabbage. I definitely don't do well with gross smells.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Hmm, I don't think I've seen this one before. The ingredients look solid to me, except for orange peel listed among the ferments... I wonder if my skin could still handle it, though. I might have to look for one of these to try! Bonus points for not smelling like kimchi. I mean, I like tasting kimchi but wouldn't want my face to smell like it. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm glad this mask worked well for you! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  Thanks so much! Oh yikes, I didn't notice the orange peel in the ingredients. I know you definitely have some trouble with the citrus skincare. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like a sheet mask would be a very easy product to do a patch test with!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  To patch test a sheet mask, I usually apply some of the serum to one or two of my usual patch test areas and then put the opened sleeve (with mask still inside) in a zip-top plastic bag. If the serum passes the test within 1-2 hours, I'll use the sheet on my face. Ideally I'd wait 24-72 hours for results but I don't like leaving mask sleeves open that long, even if sealed in a plastic bagโ€”which is kinda funny, considering how much I do trust LuLuLun's resealable multi-sheet pouches. Anyway, it's easy to patch test a sheet mask, though the test is shorter than usual. ) 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  Oh, so you do test sheet masks? That's smart. I should probably start doing that because I'm afraid one of these days I'm going to have a disaster. I hadn't thought to wait just two hours or so, but I think I usually can tell if my skin is going to react to something pretty quickly.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Huh- this is an interesting one, @PrettyPaint. I'm glad to hear it worked out nicely for you!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @quspork. Itโ€™s definitely not an ingredient I have seen in masks before! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint @Oh I think I have this one too and Iโ€™ve been thinking it looks weird haha - glad to hear it works well and had no strong scent !
