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.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I usually don't mind a light perfume scent, but this one was a bit too much to enjoy

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Well thatโ€™s a bummer, @lmaster. This brand is usually better, boo!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I know! The scent though... They need less perfume,, maybe more of a fresh scent ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve seen this version before @lmaster- sorry it ended up being meh!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888 yeah I'm bummed it wasn't impressive 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  I've been wanting to try more from this line, but it sounds like I'll be passing on this one! I'm always down for some snail, but that scent definitely does not sound like my cup of tea ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Happy to hear you got some nice results!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 they just need to cut the scent back a smidge ๐Ÿ˜’

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Escargot makes it sound so much more fancy than a regular ol' snail mask, @lmaster ๐Ÿ˜„

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork were classy around here ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  I think @quspork is right... Escargot sounds so much fancier!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh yes @missjeanie so high class ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster too bad this was a touch disappointing. I absolutely love snail masks. Bummer it didnโ€™t make the cut. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

If they just eased off the perfume scent @Weetart it would be much better

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Friday's F masking involved more Farm Skin and fruits, but this time, it was all about the hair!
Sorry, no photo with fruits - I set out a bowl of grapes to include with the apples, but it seems folks decided to eat all the grapes. Oh well.Sorry, no photo with fruits - I set out a bowl of grapes to include with the apples, but it seems folks decided to eat all the grapes. Oh well.

I hadn't planned on using this hair mask until Sunday night, but an unforeseen (there's my U) accident with my hair and my dinner ๐Ÿ˜ฉ meant that I needed to wash my hair again, so I decided to give this Farm Skin Fresh Food for Hair Care Hair Mask Deep Moisture Grape & Apple a try as well. I received this mask as a gift from Farm Skin. I purchased sheet masks and some clay masks from them a while back and a couple of the clay masks were crushed in transport. They quickly sent me replacements and included this hair mask for the inconvenience - very good of them. I wasn't expecting it at all. 
 
The design of the mask makes it very interesting - see for yourself. My takeaway from this mask session is that while my face leans slightly smaller than most sheet masks, my head is slightly larger than this third generation hair mask. My efforts to get the top of this hair mask to cover the entire top of my head was comical, but I got it all in . . . eventually. It was easier to get all my hair into the bottom portion of this hair mask. Thinking about it more clearly now, I see why the top part needs to be smaller, it helps to secure the mask, but because of the sizing and fit, this hair mask may not be for everyone.
 
The inside of the hair mask is coated with the serum and, per the directions, you are to massage it into your hair once the mask is on, which probably is another reason for the tighter fit at the top - again, to help the mask stay snug and secure. I left the mask on for the recommended 20 minutes and my hair felt light, silky and smooth as I was rinsing out the mask. This also makes a wonderful detangler. After letting my hair air dry, it looked soft, with no frizzies and a healthy shine to it. I also noticed that my hair also looked to have just a little lift to it as well - sometimes a hair mask can leave my hair looking flat, especially at the crown. Not so here. I struggle with lack of volume so that was a really nice and welcome result for me. 
 
While the fit of the top portion of the mask takes some work to get right, the results from this Farm Skin mask are good. I'm undecided on whether I would repurchase; certainly, from a results perspective, yes. This performed well for me. I'm just not sure I like the cap set up. On the other hand, if the actual mask essence/cream was available separately for purchase (apart from the cap), I would seriously consider picking it up, despite having plenty of hair masks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

That looks like a foot mask @itsfi ๐Ÿ˜† did it smell good?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It does look like a foot mask @lmaster! ๐Ÿ˜† The smell was fine just very very faint and not long lasting. I had to put my nose right up to it to pick up what subtle scent I did, and then it was gone. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

well this is interesting @itsfi .  Did you use the mask post wash or pre wash?  I always think I like the idea of these masks, but find that I end up grabbing the tubs of thick conditioner like masks instead.  Maybe I need to pick a month to concentrate on the cap versions. Super cool of the company to send this along with the replacements. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie, the directions say to wash with shampoo and then use the hair mask which I find is a pain in the patoots from a practical standpoint. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ I ended up jumping in the shower to shampoo my hair, what with having gotten sauce all in my hair and on me - yaaaay me! After towel drying my hair, I used the hair cap and then rinsed it out of my hair. 

It was super generous and thoughtful of them. Excellent customer service.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm with you on the pain in the patoots here @itsfi .  I always prefer to just leave the mask in while I'm finishing my shower.  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I was curious about these! The cap shape is quite interesting! The second photo looks like a foot mask bootie ๐Ÿค” My head is pretty big and bulbous so it probably wouldn't work for me either ๐Ÿ˜‚

What did it smell like? 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, โ€œbulbousโ€ is a great descriptor for the cap! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ The scent was suuuuper subtle, along the lines of the skin on grapes ๐Ÿ‡, maybe. Itโ€™s not a full on sweet, grape scent at all, and is very fleeting. I was trying to see if I could pick up an apple ๐ŸŽ scent, but nope.
