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 - PART II

@Loretta55, you’re welcome. Lip oils are wonderful and this one seems to be a hybrid of a balm, a gloss and an oil. And from Ilia top! Seemed like it might be of interest to you.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Thank you for the tag 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

You’re very welcome @SportyGirly125. 🤗 You’re so good with tagging me for lip balms launches; one good turn deserves another.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes, I just purchased a few lipstories as well, @itsfi , for the first time! Thank you for the tag, I will be looking forward to it;)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I think you’ll like the lipstories balms @eshoe. I found them to be nice moisturizing, balmy. The color is buildable and lasts up to 1-1/2 to 2 hours on me, but my lips stay moisturized and soft even after the color is gone. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

You are right, @itsfi . Inadvertently I bought a matte, satin and metallic, and all three are pleasant and easy on the lips. Great product for such a small $!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I like the looks of it @itsfi 🤔 thank you for the tag! I'll wait for reviews...or a promo. I don't take cheating on my glosses lightly. 😋

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hahaha @sonnydee! 😆 So many releases coming this week! A promo for these would be lovely.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Omg this looks amazing! Thanks for sharing. I’m totally on a no buy but Langeine has a gummy bear lip mask and glossy lip balm coming up that I may need to break my no buy for 😬 I also got ILIA Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment Sing  and it’s sooo good. I can only imagine how good this lip oil will be 😝

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather, there seems to be a lot of new products being released this Tuesday. 💸😂  There’ll be sales popping up too. 🛍  Picking and choosing what to get and what to pass on is definitely the way to go. Perhaps at some point there’ll be a set of mini’s for these balmy glossy oils. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi ohhhhh that sour cherry mask sounds wonderful!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This is such a nice mask @lmaster! 🍒 The brand has a sour cherry whipped moisturizer that I want to try. 😍 It sounds like it would be amazing; and with it, I probably could do a skincare routine just based on cherries! ♥️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

First thought not going to lie: is it edible? 😂🍒 @itsfi the moisturizer sounds good too. I think the only Spalife sheet mask i like is there bubble mask.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hahaha @sonnydee! 😂  The yumminess of the Eminence mask is limited to its scent. Definitely not edible. Yeah, I’m not a fan of this SpaLife mask; I don’t think I’d categorize  it as a good filler mask. It didn’t cause any breakouts, redness or other skin irritation, which I’m very thankful for, but it’s just not for me. Oh well. On to the next mask. 😉 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

F is for Farm Skin and fruit, specifically, blackberries. 😋

Mask: Farm Skin Superfood Salad For Skin Aqua Shield Bio Cellulose Mask Blackberry

Material:3rd generation coconut bio-cellulose sheet mask

Fit:Almost perfect - about 1/4" too long at chin but also 1/4" too short at forehead. I made minor cuts to the bottom corners of the eye holes to help the material lay flat against my skin and to keep it from hovering too close to my eyes. I made similar small cuts to the material at the sides of the nose to help the mask adhere better.

Adherence:Excellent

Essence:I don't feel a lot of essence from the mask itself, which is par for the course when it comes to bio-cellulose masks. There's some extra essence in the pouch and from that you can glean that the essence is a viscous and slightly gel-ish, though not too runny or thick.

Scent:I didn't pick up on any scent, which is interesting because fragrance is listed as the last ingredient. 

Purpose & Notable Ingredients:Soothing - allantoin, witch hazel

Hydrating - blackberry extract and 5-fold hyaluronic acid (I've assumed this to mean 5 different forms of hyaluronic acid)

Moisturizing - sea buckthorn fruit and a new-to-me-ingredient, melia azedarach extract 

Performance & Results:I like to use bio-cellulose sheet masks after a peel or if I've been going pretty hard with AHAs/BHAs/PHAs and find them to be very effective and soothing and nourishing the skin in those instances. Since I upped my salicylic acid use this week in a concentrated attack on 2 zits threatening to wreak havoc on my chin, I decided to go with this bio-cellulose mask and my skin seems to be pleased with that choice. 

The redness from the spots seemed to be less red after 30 minutes with this mask and my skin looked and felt refreshed and lightly hydrated. I find that bio-cellulose sheet masks don't leave much essence, if any, and so you don't always get that feel that you do with other sheet masks where your face is awash in this watery essence that you come to expect will completely hydrate your skin once fully absorbed. Even so, my skin felt nourished - the drier parts of my face felt soft, bouncy and hydrated and the parts that produce oil looked healthy and moisturized without being overwhelmed with hydration. My complexion had a bright, fresh-faced glow to it as well, which to me, is always a plus.

Would I Repurchase?:If I didn't have another couple of these, yes. I would also be interested in trying out the avocado (firming) version from this line.


This is what I think of when I think of a bio-cellulose mask.This is what I think of when I think of a bio-cellulose mask.

FYI: If anyone was wondering, the blackberries were delicious - perfectly juicy and sweet. I will definitely repurchase. 😁😆

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Ahahaha the blackberry review. I love it.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I didn’t want the blackberries to feel left out @Samtian! 😆  They were as much a part of the masking experience as the mask itself. 😉 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I saw this mask on Amazon and almost bought it (along with the avocado version), but I couldn't find the full ingredients list so I resisted. I was also a bit skeptical because I didn't see it listed at Innerest's site (they do have the clay masks listed there); I wondered if these 2 sheet masks were brand new releases or old/one-off release masks. Hmm... can you post the full ingredients, even if it's just a screenshot of the back of the sleeve in Korean? (I can get it translated.) 

 

I'm still waiting for Farm Skin to release a watermelon sheet mask. 🙂 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne, I wholeheartedly second a watermelon sheet mask!! 😍 It would be a perfect addition to their salad line. Please, oh please, be listening, Farm Skin! 😉

 

Here’s a pic of the inci list from the back of the packaging. I wasn’t able to find it online. Let me know if you have a hard time reading it; I can type it out this weekend.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @itsfi ! 🙂 Whew, you just saved me some money: I see lavender, my face's arch nemesis. That makes this mask a hard pass for me. Too bad, because there's lots of truly beneficial stuff in the ingredients list. But I'm glad it worked well for you! 

 

Now I wonder what's in the avocado version. I know it contains rosewater, something my face is not a fan of. Hmm... asking Google again... oh wow, now I see both these masks at Farmskin's site (not Innerest) and I can't do the avocado one either, thanks to lemon fruit extract. Otherwise, the avocado mask looks really nice. The rosewater comes from rosa centifolia, not damascus rose: the former is far less irritating to my face than the latter. And there's niacinamide, peach extract, adenosine, Farmskin's usual ferment, pomegranate extract, rooibos tea extract, and of course avocado oil... man, if it weren't for that dang lemon extract, I'd absolutely buy this mask to try. If you try it, I hope you like it! 

 

In case anyone's curious about the avocado version's ingredients:

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne, you’re welcome. It’s really good you know what ingredients will not work for your skin. Yes, saves money but also saves you from having a bad reaction.
