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. Don't forget to include a grade (thanks to @ShortErica for the idea) to help others along the way.


Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

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.

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!
