Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thatโ€™s completely understandable @PrettyPaint! I usually just skim through the inci list to make sure it doesnโ€™t have any ingredients I know my skin might react poorly to. Some days I do a better job of skimming than others. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Hmm, I don't think I've never seen a Tofu mask before! Another mask ingredient to add to my bucket list. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Too bad it wasn't anything special. I feel like this brand makes a lot of filler-type masks 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah @Shosh85, it's the first I've seen of a tofu sheet mask. That's actually why I purchased this one; had to give it a try, you know?! I feel like there might be one or perhaps a line of sheet masks from Mitomo (though I could be mistaking the brand) that I liked more than the others, which as you said, seem to make for good filler masks. I think that makes sense in some respects as filler masks can make for good daily sheet masks and that (daily sheet masking) is, for the most part, fairly common in Japan and Korea. I have a few more from this line that I'll work through, but after trying two from this line, my expectations will be that these are fine masks but not necessarily standouts. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Still rolling with the healthy food tie ins eh @itsfi ?  lol, I know what you mean about being picky on moisturizing and hydrating masks.  I find that I almost defend 'brightening' or 'firming' masks as needing more time/consistency to have an effect on my skin while I expect a moisturizing one to have an immediate effect. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahaha! I think that's my last food themed masking for the week @missjeanie! I had half a cupcake this week, some ice cream last weekend, and pizza last night (so good!), so maybe the healthy food tie-in is probably my attempt to balance out the other food happenings in my life the last couple of weeks. ๐Ÿ˜… Rest assured, there will be a less healthy food tie in at some point. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

 

That is so me - oh, a hydrating or moisturizing mask, you say? Or both are claimed? Hmmm... Better be good. ๐Ÿ˜‚  And then there's brightening and anti-aging, a single, isolated use is hardly enough to test the accuracy of the claims... Yeah, I can see the double standard there. Oops. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฃ But seriously, sheet masks are ordinarily intended to help with hydration so if really needs to meet that minimum standard stat, right?! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I've only been doing groceries every two weeks so my ice cream supply is nil at this point.  However I did have ingredients on hand to make snickerdoodles this morning... I could be eating one right now?  Salad for dinner though lol! 

 

And yes!  I get a bit of brightening from any sheet mask I find, a bit of a plumping, but I expect any sheet mask to act as a bit of an essence or serum and I unless it says clearing or some other form of acne control on the mask, I expect to leave feeling more hydrated... and if you're claiming hydrating.... I want some juicy skin!  The double standard is real in this house, you are not alone.

B is for Blueberry

Another excellent mask from the brand, this one did have a faint blueberry scent mixed in I could also smell a clean scent. Extra clear serum in the pack, non tacky, which I love! Once again the fit on these is perfect. After removing my skin felt more balanced and looked happier! My skin always feels so hydrated and lightly moisturized after using these!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  This looks lovely and is really making me want to try out some goodal masks!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint I honestly feel like this is a perfect mask

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  So happy to hear you're loving these! I just bought a bunch of them and I'm super excited to try 'em out! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 they are really really great!! I hope you love the material and fit too

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh so nice that there was no tackiness with this one @lmaster , I know how much of a bummer it is to so many.  And a nice light blueberry scent sounds just lovely this time of year. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I don't mind a mask that's tacky only if I knew in advance @missjeanie that way I could use it as a primer mask for makeup

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

This is the "flavor" from the line that I'm most keen to try @lmaster! Love blueberries! Love Goodal. Making a note that this is a winner for you!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I'm really enjoying these, still more to try ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

B is for Broccoli

Spoiler
What I Liked: The 100% biodegradable HI-Tencel material of the Farm Skin Superfood Salad Refreshing Broccoli Mask adheres nicely and wears comfortably for the half hour I had this one. Although the material is thin, it has enough heft to it hold in all the clear, slightly viscous, fresh scented liquid essence without having it dripping all over. My skin looks refreshed/revived and brightened and feels soft and hydrated.
 
Area(s) for Improvement: These are really just small nits. The fit on this particular mask seems to be off compared to other masks from this line. It was longer at the chin / jawline than I'm used to - it was about 1-1/2" too long and the size, shape and location of the eye holes were off. These are hardly dealbreakers as a few adjustments with my trusty mini scissors are all that's needed to customize the fit. 
 
Would I Repurchase?: It's pretty safe to say that I'd happily use the masks from this line. It really comes down to which masks in the line I like more than others. That said, this is one I would repurchase though it may not be my first choice.

@missjeanie, doesn't this make you want to have a plate of broccoli right about now?! ๐Ÿคฃ

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Always funny when masks from the same line fit differently. Mmmmm....I love broccoli. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Right @PrettyPaint! Iโ€™ve just assumed they use the same mold / template for masks within the same line. Guess not. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Yes to broccoli! I donโ€™t think I was a fan as a kid but itโ€™s a go to veggie for me as an adult. ๐Ÿฅฆ 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Mmmmm broccoli @itsfi not so keen on the scent of broccoli steaming,,, but love the taste. Great choice

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster, Iโ€™m happy it didnโ€™t smell like broccoli steaming. That would be hard to get over. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Mmmmm broccoli ๐Ÿฅฆ
