Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Haha, I love this line of masks. They aren't the most amazing masks ever, but for the price they're actually pretty decent masks. And how can you not love the names?? ๐Ÿ˜‚ @Shosh85 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@quspork I'm sure a lot of people pick these up just for the name alone. ๐Ÿ˜† They definitely have a genius marketing/design team!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

That mask name ๐Ÿคฃ is so good!! Glad it worked okay, @Shosh85!!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@haleyvvvv I'm a lot of these masks get sold just because of the title! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

The names of these masks are really great @Shosh85. Love โ€˜em! โ™ฅ๏ธ Would be interesting to put it to the test when your skin would really benefit from that great ingredients list! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  The names for these really are great! Catchy names like that always suck me in! ๐Ÿ˜† I love that it's also printed on the actual sheet too ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I have a box of them, so I'll definitely have to whip one out when my face is in need of some soothing! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

The last of the bunch from my week of hyaluronic acid masks.

Hello hydration!!!Hello hydration!!!

tl;dr: These 4 hyaluronic acid based mask sheets pack quite the punch in terms of hydration and those with dry or dehydrated skin will likely be huge fans of any one, or all four, of these beauties for that reason alone.  WIthout making any  modifications, the sheer amount of essence in each of these masks may be too much for those with normal, oily or combination skin, except possibly in the winter months when the cold weather wreaks havoc on everyone's skin.

 

% Dr. Ceuracle: delivers on its claims  "to restore dry, dehydrated or rough-looking skin lacking hydrating.


Rael:  is  a thinner leaning, medium density, bamboo-yarn sheet mask soaked but not dripping in a clear, slightly viscous, liquid essence that does as it claims - leaves skin moisturized and dewy.


Celloine Tears: Parched skin will be crying tears of joy after spending 30 minutes with  this clear, slightly-viscous, liquid essence -soaked gauze-y sheet mask. I would consider breaking a sheet mask no buy to pick up more of these Celloine Tears masks. 

 

Biobelle: The volume of clear, lightweight, watery essence saturating this thin Tencel sheet makes it entirely possible to leave this mask on for close to a full hour without it drying out. Half that time was more than enough to douse my skin with a heavy dose of hydration and leave it looking fresh faced and awake.

 

% Dr. Ceuracle Hyal Reyouth Lifting Mask:
Spoiler
Material: The material on the % Dr. Ceuracle Hyal Reyouth Lifting Mask is described by the online retailer where I purchased it as an "eco-friendly and biodegradable cotton and gum tree sheet mask." What's gum tree? Glad you asked. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It appears to be a species of the eucalyptus tree, which makes me wonder if this is a cross between a cotton sheet mask and a tencel-like mask. It certainly feels like that could be the case as the material, though soft and leaning on the thin side like Tencel, has a resiliency and certain weight to it that reminds me of a more traditional cotton sheet mask.
 
Essence: This mask holds plenty of the clear, slightly viscous, liquid essence, probably enough for at least an additional 15 minutes more wear time than my half hour masking sesh.
 
Fit: In terms of size, this mask similar to the royal propolis version from the same line is just all around "extra" - extra long, extra wide, extra essence. The large size and shape of the mask will make it accessible to more face sizes and shapes, but will require adjustments by most, if not all. I needed to make a small incision to the inner corners of the eye hole to minimize the possibility of any essence falling into my tear ducts.
 
Adherence: Very good. I wouldn't say it felt like second skin, but it did cling smoothly and comfortably to my skin.
 
Claims: Firming, lifting and hydrating
 
Performance & Results: Not sure about the lifting claims, but it did leave my skin nicely plump and supple, and definitely provided some much needed hydration and moisture, which made for a happy complexion. 
 
Overall Thoughts: On the reverse side, the mask claims "to restore dry, dehydrated or rough-looking skin lacking hydrating." It could have just said "itsfi, you need this NOW! lol. This'll be one I'll keep in my handy dandy skincare first aid kit for when my skin is parched.

Rael Hydration Sheet Mask:
Spoiler
This Rael Hydration Sheet Mask is a thinner leaning, medium density, bamboo-yarn sheet mask soaked but not dripping in a clear, slightly viscous, liquid essence that, to me, smelled subtly like paper, cardboard paper, in fact. Odd, right? Adherence was fine and fit could be made to work with adjustments to the eyes, nose and mouth, and with taking the extra half inch of material at the chin and jawline and moving it to cover the rest of my forehead. This one is shaped for a smaller face than your typical sheet masks - width was great for me but there was noticeably less material for the forehead than with most sheet masks. 
 
Instructions suggested keeping the mask on for 10-20 minutes which seemed like an awfully short period of time for something so heavily drenched in essence. I ended leaving the mask on for my usual 30 minutes and using the quartz roller for a brief facial lymphatic draining massage. When I removed the mask, there were parts of my face that looked like they were doused in the essence, which, once fully absorbed, left only the slightest amount of tack. My skin looked brightened and happily hydrated, with a nice bounce to it, so it satisfied its claims of providing a "boost of moisture and an instant glow." Those with dry skin or in need of a refreshing dose of hydration will enjoy this one. It's definitely one I'd consider keeping on hand, especially in the cooler months. I could also see this working well in the spring when my allergies suck the life out of my skin.

This particular masking sesh was enabled by a bunch of BIC lovelies - @Shosh85 for sending the sheet mask my way; @heartsmyface  for the lovely facial roller, which I've put to use on numerous occasions,  and @lmaster  for her raves over the tgin hair mask. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! ๐Ÿ’–
Celloine Tears Mask:
Spoiler
The gauze-like material on the Celloine Tears Mask is reminiscent of the Merbliss Nurse Healing mask, though a smidge heavier(?), and feels lovely on the skin. It's saturated in a clear, slightly viscous, unscented liquid that has a consistency of an essence and a serum. Adherence is wonderful and a few little snips here and there make for a more tailored fit. My skin feels very hydrated and looks dewy immediately after removing the mask. The very light tack fades quickly once the essence-serum is fully absorbed, leaving my complexion looking balanced, soft and smooth. This one is worth seeking out.

Biobelle #Sweet Glow Facial Mask Plumps & Hydrates with Hyaluronic Acid & Collagen (aka ice cream truck mask?):
Spoiler
Material: Light, thin, eucalyptus fiber (Tencel)
 
Essence: Clear, light, and watery essence. The mask is very saturated but not dripping in this essence. There's an extremely light scent to this; the scent reminds me a little of plastic. The scent is subtle and, fortunately, fleeting.
 
Fit: Fairly standard fit; adjustments needed for a more tailored and comfortable fit. For me, that meant shaving off about 3/4" from the length at the chin and jawline and using that strip to cover the 1/2" gap between the top of the sheet mask and my hairline. Width on this was perfect. Slight incisions were made to the corners for the eyes and mouth for better fit and to ensure the serum did not leak into either my eyes or mouth. 
 
Adherence: Very good; there were a few air bubbles, but they were easily smoothed over. 
 
Claim(s): Plumps and Hydrates (and with the "#SweetGlow", I'm going to say it also claims to brighten)
 
Performance & Results: The mask felt cooling on my skin and wore comfortably for the entire 30 minutes I had this on. Even though my wear time exceeded the recommended 10-20 minutes, this mask held so much essence that I could have easily kept it on without any issues with drying for another 20-30 minutes; at least! There was zero tack or stickiness after removing the mask and patting and pressing the essence into my skin to help with its absorption. As for its claims, the "sweet glow" is more of what I consider a fresh faced liveliness - my complexion looked and felt soft, smooth and awake, as if I had gotten in a good amount of sleep even if that wasn't actually the case.  The most noticeable result was how hydrated my skin looked and felt. 
 
Overall Thoughts:  I haven't been too impressed with the new Biobelle sheet masks . . . until now, that is. This is hands down my favorite of the new ones. The hydration my dehydrated skin received from this mask was fantastic! This makes for a great morning mask for those with dehydrated or dry skin, or anyone who could use a boost of hydration, and in the winter, that could be all skin types. This one is a repurchase for me.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Oh I loved that Rael mask @itsfi .  Actually I liked all of their masks now that I think of it.  And now I'm off to see where these get sold in Canada!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@missjeanie Actually, your reviews are the reason I picked some up! @itsfi 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85 I want to say that I've seen the brand have a few other items I was eyeing at one point as well.... I believe when I first saw them they were doing cotton products, menstrual products and face masks, but I see now they've expanded quite a bit.  I have a few heating patches that stick onto your abdomen but haven't tried them yet.  And... now looking at their site they have a bunch of stuffs I wouldn't mind testing! Need to get back into the US to visit a Target!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Ahhhh, the circle of enabling!!! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ @Shosh85 @missjeanie 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@missjeanie, Rael sheet masks are available online at Urban Outfitters Canada. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Oh nice @itsfi , I always tend to forget about their beauty selection and it's actually a sizeable one.  I checked last night and I maybe have several of them in my collection already.  total face palm.  need to get through more of this stash clearly. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@missjeanie, youโ€™re doing an incredible job on working through your stash!! ๐Ÿ’– I hear ya on forgetting that UO stocks sheet masks. Thereโ€™s so many more resources for sheet mask these days. Great for us; well, sorta. ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi Thanks... it's been a bit of getting back into the groove, but I know that working through some of my 'boring' masks will help me bring the collection back into a manageable size that I can have fun with.  I found myself perusing the UO website and then had to draw a line with myself and close down the laptop for a hot minute lol

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Nicely done @missjeanie! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Itโ€™ll feel good when your mask collection is at your target level.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi Those are some great looking masks!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Thank you @Samtian! They performed really well too! My skin felt so hydrated and happy after using each of them!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi oh my goodness!! You used some great sounding masks,, I'm very interested in a couple of these as well

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Sheet masks have been a great way for me to get some more hydration @lmaster! It was a good week for my skin. ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This looks like a nice set of masks, @itsfi. I'm definitely curious to try the Rael and Celloine.
