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

Last night I used the creme shop Hello Kitty Tea Time mask. I was bummed I can't smell it and hit myself in the nose with it trying to smell, and not realizing how close I was. It seems like an ok mask. My face was super red after. But in the morning my forehead was super slick and oily, the rest of my face looked fine though.


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian can you still not smell anything?? What about taste?? You feeling any better?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster For smell I can very very very faintly smell two things. Bum Bum Cream and Meteorites, and I can't smell them for long. If I spray perfume I smell for .0001 seconds and that is it. I cannot smell anything else at all. Taste is iffy. I can faintly taste a few things, but it is mostly liquids. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian oh man!!!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh no @Samtian! So sorry this one didnโ€™t work out for you. I wonder if thereโ€™s an ingredient or more than one that your skin is sensitive to. ๐Ÿค” 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I know Vitamin C but beyond that I don't know. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Bummer you couldn't get the scent from this one @Samtian .  If memory serves I only get a faint scent from it.  I'll have to try it again soon to make sure my memory is intact. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Aw, I'm sorry this ended up being disappointing for you, @Samtian. I hope your redness faded quickly!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork Thank you, thankfully it did!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Man, it seems like you have the worst luck with masks! Do you have sensitive skin? ๐Ÿค” Glad this one was at least ok for you. I feel like all the Hello Kitty masks are just ok. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป 
Have you tried any sheet masks you like?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Haha I have been having not the best of luck lately. Oh I've had masks I love. My skin isn't usually so sensitive until the last few months. Tea smelling things always smell good so that made me sad.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Tonightโ€™s masking with Volcanic and Vita:


The innisfree Volcanic Cluster Pack has been on my to-do list for a while now. It is a chalky grey, shiny clay that applies smoothly and seamlessly. No scent that was obvious or worthy of noting.

After leaving it on for nearly 45 minutes, it still had not dried, nor was it tight. After rinsing, my skin felt smooth and refreshed, highly unusual for a clay mask. I can see why this one is a favorite, it will be a repeat for me for one!

The Orjena Moisture Essential Vita Mask showcases โ€˜Cellulose Maskโ€™ at the bottom, which I hadnโ€™t noticed when purchasing. I was pretty elated and opened to inspect it closer. It did not appear to be a biocell mask, although the material conformed similarly well to my skin. It also felt close to one, although definitely not on par with the strict adherence of one. As with the innisfree, I did not detect a scent. It fit well on my face, and I left it on a good 30 minutes before removing. No remaining tack, plumped skin - this was a lovely mask and one I would repurchase in a heartbeat! I have a couple of others from the brand which I am now very excited to try.



Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Is this the same mask as innisfree Super Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Clay Mask ? @eshoe 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes. @lmaster, just the baby version ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The Innisfree mask is a nice one @eshoe. Good to hear it worked well for you. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I am (very) late to the game with that one, @itsfi, but happy to have tried it. I believe I have seen it in a pump, so I hope to try that after finishing my Pacifica Charcoal mask.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I felt the need to keep repeating to myself... "I don't need more masks right now" while reading your review lol.  What a great set to put together though!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It must be the new thing in masks, @missjeanie. I am using another one tonight that acts like a hybrid. Feels great but the fit is so awful๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The Innisfree volcanic mask sounds so nice, @eshoe. I love seeing clay masks that don't overly dry the skin. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Me too, @quspork. They are few and far between. I tend to forget I am wearing a wash-off unless it becomes uncomfortable. I prefer to wear a mask that way so itโ€™s an added bonus:)
