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.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart hey at least you know where to find everything! It sounds like you have a good system in place๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  Nice! Love the organization! I just downsized from 3 drawers of masks to 2, so I'm getting there ๐Ÿ˜‚ I love that you have a spot just for the heated eye masks - those are definitely great to have on hand! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart These sound so great - minus the scent! I've only tried one mask from this line, but really enjoyed it as well.

Good for you for keeping to your one drawer rule! Definitely seems like a great system ... and eventually I'll get myself there ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

These sound great @Weetart , I recognize the packaging so I may have one from the line somewhere.  I'll have to take a look. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Glad to hear these work so well for you, @Weetart! And I commend your restraint on sticking to the one-drawer rule. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

F is for Firms. Iโ€™m stretching it for this one. I had a sample of Purlisseโ€™s Watermelon Energizing Marshmallow Peel Off Mask. โ€œPurifies pores, brightens skin, visibly forms and tightenโ€. If you love watermelon products and havenโ€™t tried any of Purlisseโ€™s watermelon line. I strongly suggest it. Super yummy. Their moisturizer is great! But this mask, itโ€™s a decent light peel off, of that makes any sense. I would say itโ€™s perfect for those who find the more grippy peel offs too intense. Iโ€™m more of a super grippy peel off mask person. But my face was soft and brighter after using this. The smell is amazing. I have no idea about the marshmallow part of the name. Absolutely no clue. Itโ€™s worth trying and I recommend to those looking for more delicate peel off mask.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  you had me at watermelon!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I have not tried the sheet mask! Didn't even know they had one.... I'll have to look into it. @itsfi @Shosh85 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The Purlisse watermelon sheet mask is a love for me @Weetart; I'll have to look into this one. ๐Ÿ‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  I haven't tried this one, but I do love the sheet mask! I wonder if they have the same scent, because the sheet mask smelled delicious too! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‰ Glad you've been enjoying it! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart same @eshoe ever since I used that lace peel off mask,,, I've been done with those kinds,,, but this one sounds better!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

โ€˜Peel-offโ€™ always scares me, @Weetart - but you say this is a gentle one? Iโ€™ve tried the cleanser from this line and agree with you in the scent. I will keep my eye out for this one, might be fun to try:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

S is for soothing

VT Cica Daily Soothing Mask.jpeg

 

Spoiler
What I Like
The material of the VT Cica Daily Soothing Mask is quite nice - it's a nude seal fabric, same as the Merbliss Intense Hydration mask I posted on previously.  There's a good amount of essence in these sheets, more so than I've seen in some daily sheet mask packs. There are also some good skincare ingredients in the essence - extracts of centella asiatica, honey, propolis and royal jelly, along with sodium hyaluronate and pathenol, to name a few.  These masks can be left on for 10-20 minutes (per the instructions) without it drying out and I find that amount of time to hydrate my skin nicely. It's not as hydrated as if I used an individual sheet mask, but I didn't expect it to. I was pleasantly surprised that it gave me more hydration than I thought it would. I also love the mini tongs that come with these sheet masks as well! These VT sheet masks claim to soothe the skin and I feel like it did, to some extent, at least. My skin wasn't super irritated to begin with when I used these. A couple blemishes looked less angry, always a plus. 
 
What's also a plus is that this mask pack contains, wait for it . . . 
 
30 sheet masks!!!
 
LOL! Not 20. Or 32. Or 36. Thirty. So there are actual months where this mask pack will be perfect for daily masking. Hahaha! Tagging @Shosh85 @lmaster, I wasn't sure I would come across a mask pack that had 30 or 31 sheet masks, but here we go. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚
 
Area(s) for Improvement
The packaging has its pros and cons. I would like to see a better way to close/seal the inside "door" to the sheet masks. It's easy to tear off completely, which is what I did the first time I used a daily sheet mask pack with this type of design (it was from A'Pieu). I learned my lesson and made sure not to tear off the inner lid completely. Still, though, some of the essence ended spilling out when the box fell from the sink counter, which means these are not safe for travel (but then again, I don't have any travel plans for the time I intend to use these sheet masks). Good news though, the two-lid system prevented any sheets from touching the floor - it landed on a closed lid so everything was intact, save the essence that seeped out. Could've been worse, but this is one of the areas with this mask pack can could benefit the most from a redesign. This isn't a deal breaker.
 
Would I repurchase?
I'd like to go through the entire box before committing to anything, but I'm definitely leaning towards this being a repurchase. I'll try to remember to post about these sheet masks again when V is the letter of the week. If all goes accordingly to plan, I'll pretty much have gone through this mask pack by then so the timing should work out very nicely.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I love the packaging and the tongs!! Sounds great!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I've been thinking about my beauty packaging more and more as well and I like the idea of these masks.  I've been great at reducing quite a bit in other areas of my life however I've found that beauty wise while I recycle where I can, there's still a significant amount of trash.  Are these packaged in a 'baby wipe' type of plastic box?  Do you find that they last open much past the 30 ish days?  I don't use makeup or cleansing wipes often but when I do I find that they dry out before I can finish the pack and end up adding water into them to 're-hydrate'. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  30? So that means even if you bought 12, you would still come up 5 short for the year ๐Ÿ˜‚ .... but I guess if you replaced a few of the 30 packs with the 32 packs, it'd even out ๐Ÿ˜†

Glad to hear these are working out well for you so far! I'll be super interested to know how you feel about them when you've gone through a pack! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜ Yes @Shosh85, these would not work for a full year without some additional masks. I like these daily mask packs but I donโ€™t think I like them so much that Iโ€™d just want to use one or just ones like this for a year. You know I get distracted by new sheet masks. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I have been thinking about what a good allocation of masks in my collection would be for me with daily mask packs, tried and true masks, filler masks and new to me masks, etc., so we shall see.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi @That sounds really interesting! Sometimes I do get concerned about all the packaging so this sounds like a nice compromise! Glad to hear they exceeded your expectations 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888, I really like sheet masks but the packaging has been something that I've given thought to. I'll continue to use individual sheet masks but will incorporate more of these daily mask packs in my sheet mask routine more frequently, now that I've found a few that my skin seems to like. ๐Ÿ˜

Buddy mask

This sheet was thin with extra clear serum, eye holes needed snipped in the inner corners, but otherwise fit nicely. The scent to me was more floral/sweet. I wore it for 20 minutes and massaged the remaining serum. Again nicely hydrated and moisturized and my skin felt nourished and clean. No noticeable tack ๐Ÿ‘ will use again for sure!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It was nice to buddy up and even more fun with masks we all enjoyed @lmaster!
