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

@eshoe, I find milky, cream, lotion type essences in sheet masks are great for moisturizing and nourishing my skin when it's dry, especially in the winter. ๐Ÿ˜€

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  This one sounds great! Love that milky serum! I'm even more excited to try mine now ๐Ÿ˜‰ So happy to hear you loved it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oooouh, I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the masks from this line @Shosh85. Did you pick up all three? Milky serums are great, aren't they? So soothing and nourishing for dry skin! ๐Ÿ˜My skin loves 'em! ๐Ÿ˜ 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Yup, I picked up all three and I can't wait to try them! I would have  to say milky/creamy serum is my most favorite! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi would you say the tarte lippies have a good scent??

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Hmmm....for the most part, yes, @lmaster. While I do pick up a yummy strawberry scent from this one, there is a slightly artificial bent to it and I initially smell a very light plastic scent as well. That plastic smell does go away pretty quickly. Here's what the balm looks like (it looks more rosy red in the photo, it's more of a pink IRL):

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I feel like your love of lip balms has influenced my love of lip balms @itsfi .  I don't need anymore either... yet I just placed an order, so I mean... if your protege can place an order.....

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Lol @missjeanie! I think weโ€™re more peers when it comes to our looooove โ™ฅ๏ธ of lip balms. By the way, you are so the person I was thinking about when I was writing about these lip balms, but of course I didnโ€™t want to be too enabling and tag you. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Next time youโ€™re getting tagged. Because there will be a next time. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I was thinking today about going through some of mine and seeing if I could declutter any... then I looked at what I had just on my side table where I work.... nope.  I'm not a declutter gal, and not my balms.  Even the ones I don't love... still have their place. Its silly but I've got a list of balms in my phone that I go to look at whenever I see a sale pop up. Miss Piggy got here yesterday.  I couldn't resist. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ooooh, how are you liking the Miss Piggy balm @missjeanie?! 

Yeah, I hear ya. It's hard for me to declutter; well, unless it is just well past its prime or causes me to breakout and I can't find a good way to repurpose it. I'm working on being better at it, but like you, lip balms sorta get a pass from being a candidate for decluttering. I don't know why; that's just the way it goes. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I just tried the Miss Piggy balm today @itsfi  so I can't really comment on how long wearing it is etc etc... However, The packaging is fantastic, kind of reminds me of the milk lipsticks a bit, it's a good weight, has a click magnetic closure and ... so totally only something a big beauty fan would appreciate, but there are imprints on the bullet of positive moi affirmations, and it's a touch that I love.  The pigment isn't super strong, it's very much in the tinted balm category and not a sheer lipstick, a lighter pink colour that you'd expect from a Miss Piggy moment.  So far I really like it.  It makes me smile to see it, I feel like the packaging is excellent, and the balm feels nice, it's got some slip to it, but I like that it feels thinner and slippier as it is a balm.  It's no lip mask by way of hydration, but I'm okay with that.  So far I'm super happy that I picked it up.  And I'm even happier that I snagged it on sale. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

W is for watermelon. I also think Icing or The Icing would be a good band name ๐Ÿ˜‰




A'pieu Watermelon Icing Sweet Bar Sheet Mask

This is a super thin and transparent cotton sheet mask that was soaking with serum and had a yummy watermelon scent. It didn't smell like fresh watermelons, more like a sweet/candy type of scent - pretty comparable to the GR Watermelon Mask. It had a good fit - just a little wide at the forehead and the mouth and eye holes were a little too small. I took it off after about a half hour. When I removed it there was still some slightly tacky serum on my face, but it absorbed within minutes. My face looked less dull and slightly brighter, my skin felt soft and smooth and stayed hydrated for quite sometime. This is one I really enjoy and will definitely continue to repurchase! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‰



Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  This mask sounds wonderful!! To bad the scent wasnโ€™t a little more watermelony 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Mmmmmm ๐Ÿ˜‹ watermelon @Shosh85 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Right? It is sooo good! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  I like "The Icing" as a band name! ๐Ÿ™‚ I recall trying a yellow version of this line (maybe lemon or something), but the watermelon sounds much yummier! ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  There isn't a lemon one in this line, so it must've been pineapple ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ƒ  That one has a pretty delicious scent too! ๐Ÿ˜‹


PS: I love the creative theme!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Yay! I definitely need to pick more of these up. I got curious and looked this line up. I think the one I tried was actually called Hanrabong! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I know I have an icing mask... but is it a watermelon one?  Gonna need to check it out today!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  It's definitely a deliciously scented line of masks! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

That's a splendid inci list on that sheet mask @Shosh85! I don't know why but I tend to hoard this A'Pieu watermelon sheet mask. Everytime I look at it, I think "ohhhh, you're a good one!" but then I just keep it set aside for a special day. Hmmm.... Gonna have to make some changes there because this one's too good to keep on the sidelines. ๐Ÿ˜


The Icing is a great name for a band. I'd buy their record, and merch if they had it. Can you imagine what kind of great merchandise a band named Icing or The Icing could have?! ๐Ÿ˜†
