Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

From last week, F for firming in the Manyo Bifida Ampoule Wrap mask




This is a seaweed gel mask that promotes skin barrier health and turned out quite nice. It's a 2 piece mask so lends itself to a nice fit. There was a ton of clear serum left in the package as well. It is quite scented but nothing offensive. It had an earthy scent with a hint of mint. I'm assuming that's all in the rosemary water, Irish moss water, and eucalyptus leaf oil coming through. While on, it felt very cooling, almost tingly- quite invigorating. It did seem to dry out quicker than I would have liked, less than 15 minutes in. After removal there wasn't too much tack left and while I didn't notice a visual difference in my skin, my skin did feel nice. I'd probably use this one again in the morning for a nice wake-up-the-skin mask. 


Then for Flash masks, the Patchology Flashmasque Illuminate 



Well, I finally found a Patchology mask that I would not repurchase. I usually love their masks, but this one just wasn't kind to my face. It's a cotton sheet with a super cute lace design on it. But that's really where the positives end. The scent, ugh, the scent. It smelled like acetone. It was quite off-putting. The fit was 100% terrible- far too long and narrow. If you're insanely skinny with a Tyra Banks 5-head though, you may have better luck in that arena. While my skin did feel a little softer and smoother after removal, there was no brightness as one would expect with an "illuminating" mask and I did have bit of redness. That went away after a couple hours, but still, not ideal. They can't all be winners!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhhh the scent acetone ๐Ÿ˜ฃ yikes sorry about that one!! @quspork 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork, Iโ€™m intrigued by the Man:yo mask; Iโ€™ve heard good things about their skincare in general. The Patchology mask though is a pass for me, but I loved reading your review. ๐Ÿ˜ I think Tyra Banksโ€™ forehead has me beat on being extra, and it cannot be said that Iโ€™m insanely skinny so this one doesnโ€™t seem like it would be a good fit. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I've heard good things about the ampoule that the Manyo mask is based on, @itsfi, but I haven't tried too much from their brand yet. A lot of it looks nice though! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Haha! Your "Tyra Banks 5-head" comment cracked me up! ๐Ÿ˜‚ The scent alone would keep me from trying this one!๐Ÿ˜ฌ Sorry to hear it was unimpressive! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I used to watch a lot of America's Next Top Model, @Shosh85 - that phrase is etched in my memory ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Love the two piece masks @quspork , but you're right, they can't all be loves, at least now you know that that Patchology mask is a pass. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

So true, @missjeanie - at least it frees up future purchasing for better masks!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I've tried a ton. Miss Spa's Hemp seed mask is great. Avon's Put Your Cool Face On mask is my all time favorite. I love how they are cut, it provides lift. It's calming effects are phenomenal. I recently tried Neutrogena Hydro Boost and did not like it. I did not like the consistency, the fact it came in two halves. Would not recommend. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Danielle103, I didnโ€™t even know Avon carried sheet masks. I tend to just restock what I need when Iโ€™m on the site, and maybe get lost in the various lip balms they have ๐Ÿ˜† but will make a note to check out that mask as it sounds wonderful! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The bottom piece was slipping off. I couldn't even talk. I haven't tried many others in the Miss Spa collection, I ordered some today.  The Avon one is cut like a face lift. I ordered some more from there today. I will let you know. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Danielle103 I haven't thought to check out masks from Avon, great idea!  I love two piece masks, mostly so I can get a better fit and can take off the bottom if I want to snack lol.  Hope you find some new fun masks on the thread!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

E for Vitamin E



This is the last mask for the 3 pack I tried. Out of the 3 this one is my least favorite. The sheet was fine, same as the others, the scent was horrendous,,,๐Ÿคฎ an absolute deal breaker. To me it smelled foul, that's the best description. Wear time was 15, I wanted to give it a fair shot despite the scent. It completely was underwhelming!! It claims quenching,,,I felt very minimal hydration, nothing screamed soothing and nothing felt moisturizing about this mask. Major fail. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ack!! ๐Ÿ˜ซ Sorry to hear this 3-pack was underwhelming @lmaster. ๐Ÿ˜Œ Appreciate your thoughts on each of the masks. Knowing masks that are not worth picking up is just as helpful as knowing the good ones. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi the experience is worth the price ๐Ÿ˜† usually

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I just ordered one. Ugh. The smell is going to be a killer for me too. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Danielle103 I'd love to know what you think of these masks, we can compare scents โ˜บ๏ธ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Too bad only the one was a good one for you @lmaster .  Good on you for giving it a fair shot after a nasty scent though!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It literally reminded me of the smell of a poorly kept pond @missjeanie 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Aww, dang. Sorry to hear this one didn't turn out so well! A bad scent and unimpressive results definitely sound like a fail to me. ๐Ÿ˜•

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 ughhhhhh major fail ๐Ÿ˜’
