Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Lovely concept  Gorgeous and wonderful results!   

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@tjffc, when I first used these eye masks from The Creme Shop, I thought they were just so large but the size has really come in handy for me. It covers the areas where I'm prone to be more dry. It doesn't hurt that with this one at least, the scent is amazing! Highly recommend these eye masks.  ๐Ÿ˜

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Oh yes, this is such a nice one! I remember the first time I tried it I was surprised how good it smelled!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The scent seriously needs to be bottled @PrettyPaint! ๐Ÿ˜‰ An example of when added fragrance is done right. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Im embarrassed to say I have yet to try these. Maybe I'll wear one tomorrow while I'm cooking/getting ready for a party.๐Ÿ˜ I think i have all the variations too. @itsfi glad to hear its a good one, im just so bad about using eye masks. And I should since i always get the "you look tired". Duh, people. Duh. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

What @sonnydee?!!! People tell you that you look tired?! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I hope they were discreet about it. I shouldn't be surprised; in the past, there's been more than one occasion where I was told "oh, you really don't look so good." Thank you for that; no really; thank YOU! ๐Ÿคฃ Hahaha! The things people say. I've have these in my mask bin for ages it seems. I sometimes forget they are there but after using this one, I'm reminded how well these will come in handy when periodic breakouts or maskne means it might be better to not use a sheet mask on my chin / jawline area. Hope this one works out well for you. Have fun at your party!!! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Not really discreet ๐Ÿ˜ณ@itsfi. and i even had that comment come up not just from family or "friends" but even acquaintances. And even if I have a newborn. Smh. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ i havent heard it fairly recently since weve been at home more but I'm sure it's coming

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ugh! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ So sorry @sonnydee

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Its ok @itsfi just helps me sharpen my wittiness/sarcastic responses. And if i don't like the person...๐Ÿ˜พ...im not even joking the things I come up.with. Some people just lack common sense/manners/courtesy. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Excellent outlook @sonnydee! ๐Ÿค— Itโ€™s good to have a healthy dialogue of wit and sarcasm with yourself every now and again! Keeps the mind sharp! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

B is for Benton

Benton Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack

 

Material:

Thin cotton

 

Serum:

Clear and watery. A little extra in the pouch for hands and arms

 

Scent:

None that I could tell

 

Fit:

Almost perfect- just a smidge too long at the chin/jawline

 

Wear Time:

Half hour

 

Tack:

Very light and only stuck around for less than 10 minutes

 

Results:

Soft and smooth, lightly hydrated skin and a brighter, more even complexion.

I used a Biore nose strip right before this mask and it cleared up the redness I got from it.

 

Repurchase?

Yes, definitely! I would actually love to have permanent backups of this one. It makes a great soothing mask and a perfect one to have handy when my skin is acting up.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Nice!! @Shosh85 where did you find this one??

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Yay! I really like centella as a mask ingredient.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Oh, me too! It's definitely one of my favorite skincare ingredients! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm in 100% agreement with you on having permanent backups of this mask @Shosh85๐Ÿ˜ Benton has a small curation of sheet masks but they are so good! โค๏ธ 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Happy to hear it's a love for you too! I would definitely love to try the others from the brand! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, is this the first Benton sheet mask youโ€™ve used? They have an aloe one that I really like - it along with this Cica one falls into the category of โ€œmasks to keep on hand for skin emergencies.โ€ Both are in my skincare first aid kit. Benton also makes a sheet mask version of their popular snail bee serum. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Yup, this is my first one! I remember you reviewing the Aloe and Snail-bee ones and I would definitely like to pick those up sometime! I also saw a Fermentation one I'd like to try as well. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, how could I forget the fermentation one?!!! Especially since I took it out the other day. Oh goodness, how forgetful! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

B is for bean curd (aka tofu)

Spoiler
Mask:Mitomo Sincere Laura Tofu Facial Essence Mask
Material:It leans ever so slightly thinner than your standard sheet mask but there's also certain heft to it that feels more the result of the mask material itself (as opposed to the amount of essence it holds). It has a light gauze-like pattern to it as well. 

Purpose:Moisturizing, stimulates collagen production, anti-aging

Key Ingredients:Moisturizing - glycerin; glycine soja (soybean) seed extract; aloe vera leaf extract; sodium hyaluronate

Anti-aging - hydrolyzed collagen; ubiquinone (coQ-10); Boswellia serrata gum extract

Brightening - kiwi fruit extract; vitamin C (ethyl ascorbic acid)

Soothing - allantoin; aloe vera leaf extract

Full ingredients list in spoiler below.

Adherence + Fit:Adherence was good; fit is on the large side all around, which will make it suitable for many face sizes. A notable feature is that the eye holes are larger (both length and width-wise) than your standard face mask. This one included eye flaps as well.

Essence / Serum:Watery essence; there was plenty of essence to saturate the mask and some extra in the packet.
Scent:There's a non-lingering scent to the essence, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what it is. 

Results:There's a definite tacky feeling after removing the mask and pressing in the essence, but it eventually dissipates. My skin felt cool to the touch and this cooling feel remained for some time after removing the mask. 

Would I Repurchase?Maybe. There are just so many sheet masks geared at moisturizing the skin that it becomes more challenging for a mask of that kind to stand out. This isn't a bad mask; it's pretty good and one that I could see working well for daily sheet masking. 

My Two Cents:There are some great ingredients in this mask, but I can be very particular (read: picky highly selective) ๐Ÿ˜‰ when it comes to masks with moisturizing as its primary purpose. On the one hand, that's the type of mask that's very well suited for my dehydrated and dry skin in the cooler months. That though, coupled with the fact that there are a lot of moisturizing sheet masks out there means that it's harder for any moisturizing mask to really "wow" me. This particular tofu mask is what I'd consider a good mask, but not a great one.
