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˜†

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Yeah, I know what you mean. I generally tend to hoard the good ones too, and this is definitely one of them!


Haha! There are endless possibilities for logo/merchandise with that kind of name! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿง

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

This mask is sooooo deliciously yummy, @Shosh85! These are an easy repurchase, and repeat:)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Yes, absolutely! If these ever go oos I'll be very sad! I will definitely repurchase these for as long as I can!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Challenge Theme: Mask that would make a good band name 

Challenge accepted @PrettyPaint๐Ÿคฃ

What a fun and creative theme @PrettyPaint! Here's my first band name entry: BTS

Band Name Mask - BTS.jpg



This mask also falls into another of this week's themes - W for whitening, which I'm going to assume means brightening. The name of this mask includes the name of an existing group, BTS. I know, I know, not at all creative on my part.  I first heard of the group when I came across some Mediheal sheet masks a year or so ago, as well as some "slice" masks with cute characters that the band members created. This is the second time I've used this particular mask, the first was sometime last year and it was the standard version and packaging (non-BTS collab / endorsed).


Mediheal W.H.P. White Hydrating Black Mask is a thick-leaning black charcoal mask saturated and nearly dripping in a clear, slightly-viscous-but-also-runny soapy-scented essence that fortunately is undetectable once the mask has been applied to the face. This mask feels cool against the skin and is meant to help whiten/brighten and hydrate the skin. Interestingly, it appears that I picked up a nutty flavor the first time I used this mask. Black charcoal sheet masks are among my favorite type of material for sheet masks because it tends to adhere beautifully and the same held true here. โค๏ธ Most Mediheal sheet masks can be easily tailored to fit my face shape and features and that also held true with this mask - I was able to get a near perfect fit after taking off about an inch of material from the chin/jawline and making slight incisions to the inner corners of the eye holes. I left the mask on for a little over an half hour. There was a slight tacky-to-the-touch feel after removing the mask and allowing the excess essence to absorb, but that eventually disappeared and my skin was left feeling soft, supple and wonderfully hydrated. In terms of whitening / brightening, my complexion looked more clear, fresh and bright, but not noticeably more so than other sheet masks. I wouldn't say my face looked lighter or white, but I didn't expect it to, though the mask comes with a recommendation to use this mask 2-3 times per week for a month. I'm not sure if I'd notice more of a whitening or brightening effect if I were to use this as recommended. My main goal with sheet masks is hydration and with that in mind, this mask delivers and is on the short list of sheet masks that I would happily repurchase and consider a staple in my library of sheet masks.


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I keep checking stock for those stick masks too. I'll let you know if I see them back. I feel bad because the only reason I know about BTS is from sheet masks. I keep meaning to give them a listen!! I'm just now catching up on posts, but you totally rocked this challenge! ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Awww @PrettyPaint, thank you! ๐Ÿค— "rocked this challenge" - I see what you did there! ๐Ÿ˜ It was such a blast to see what folks came up with. I was stumped at first with how to go about finding a mask to fit the theme, but after I started pulling masks I wanted to use before the end of the year, it made for a lot of fun - challenging and creative.


Oh, don't feel bad - I was the same way. I first heard of BTS because of sheet masks. I was in the store and the salesperson was trying to upsell the masks because they came with photocards of the band members. All I could think of was "ummm, I really do not need more stuff. I wonder if I can just take the mask?" but I didn't say that aloud. She looked surprised when, after she rang up my purchase, I offered her the photocards to give to her other customers. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I really hope they bring the mask sticks back! I was planning on buying a couple before they went oos.

Sounds like the mask stick would pair well with the Mediheal mask! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Me too @Shosh85! ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ Keep an eye out for the sticks to restock. I find that can happen after a sale and after the holidays, with stores clearing out and finding extra stock they have in the backroom after the year end rush.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhhhh I'm loving the sounds of this one! @itsfi 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster, I think you'd like this mask! ๐Ÿ˜ The material is so comfortable to have on and it's hard to go wrong with a hydrating + brightening mask! Mediheal has a couple of packaging redesigns for this mask, but as far as I know, it's just a change to packaging and not to formulation. I've seen individual use masks of this one at masksheets (dot) com and olive young, though I've not ordered from the latter ... yet. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I share your affinity for charcoal masks, @itsfi . They really feel cozy and like a comfortable hydrating blanket for your face:). It doesnโ€™t sound like the BTS version is much different (if at all) form the original, except maybe for the scent. Thatโ€™s a very good thing!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, I suspect the scent was probably off on one of the ones I used. I don't think the collab included any other changes except to packaging, to include the band's branding (like Mediheal does with its Line Friends collab) and also some picture cards with the band members for fans.
