@itsfi I've never seen cotton like this!! 🀣 Definitely next generation

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Right @lmaster?!! To me, the Lanseal material incorporates the best of a microfiber cotton mask, a hydrogel and Tenal and gauze-type masks. Just extraordinary. I love masks (sheet masks and rinse off) and just skin care in general, so finds like this type of mask just make me happy! πŸ’– 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@lmaster  Ooh, this one sounds so nice! @itsfi  sent me the "Glow" one and I loved it! Definitely seems like a great brand to explore! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Shosh85 it is absolutely a great brand to get behind and hopefully they won't discontinue anything 😬

L is for voesh suns out pouts out Lip mask.  I’m not a fan of sheet style lip masks but am just using these up since I received them in a fff box.   They’re super cute and have a light scent of watermelon, stick on well enough snd have no talking/eating hole.  I made a snip so I have the option.  I appreciate the hydration around my lips more than the hydration on them so they’re still beneficial.  Around my lips felt super hydrated and soothed.  My lips themselves felt kinda normal like it never happened.  

The wander baggage claim eye masks are wonderful as per usual.  

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Such a pretty lip mask, @heartsmyface. Good point about the extra hydration outside of the lip lines, too. I forget that area needs some TLC once in awhile!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@heartsmyface  Love that you're color coordinated! The lip mask doesn't sound super impressive but I love the design and a watermelon scent sounds nice!

The Wander eye masks are one my favorites! Glad to hear you enjoy them too πŸ˜ƒ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Oh a light watermelon scent on the lip mask sounds nice @heartsmyface 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@heartsmyface, I hear ya about the hydration around the lips from lip masks like these. The print on the lip mask is really cute though. Reminds me that I have a similar lip mask to maybe reach for. The Wander under eye masks are great - I used to keep at least a couple of them in my travel bag. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

That is a fancy-looking lip mask, @heartsmyface!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Got my vitamins in earlier this week, thanks to @Kim888's great masking challenge. 

Cucumber, a source of vitamin K, took center stage for Monday's after-work "time out". πŸ˜‰

When I think "cucumber", I think "refreshing" and I was looking for a little refreshment Monday night.When I think "cucumber", I think "refreshing" and I was looking for a little refreshment Monday night.


Sheet Mask:

Spoiler
Generally speaking, I prefer the original Biobelle sheet masks. Most of the newer masks from the brand fall short when compared to the original versions. There are, however, a couple of sheet masks from the new range that I don't mind and like even; one being this Biobelle #FreshPop Facial Mask Tones and Refreshes with Cucumber & Kiwi Extract, an ultra thin Botanic TMF Fiber mask (i.e., eucalyptus pulp mask that resembles Tencel) saturated in a clear, watery but not runny essence that has a subtle fresh scent to it. Adherence is great and fit can be tailored with a few cuts and adjustments here and there, including for me at the corners of the eyes and mouth, and along the chin and jawline. I didn't experience any of its toning claims but I found that it satisfied its claims to refresh and plump the skin. It also left my skin dewy with hydration, a plus for my dehydrated and dry skin this time of the year. This made for a good choice for unwinding and I could also see it working very well after a long day out in the sun in the warmer months. This is one I would happily use again.

PSA: Biobelle sheet masks are on sale at kohls (dot) com - $2.39, marked down from $3.99. For those who are fans of the older version of the Biobelle sheet masks, there are 3 different varieties  of the older Biobelle masks available online.

Hand Mask:

I don't ordinarily use hand masks because I generally mask while I task, but decided to give myself a 15 minutes break from tasking with this Sephora Collection Clean Hand Mask (Cucumber). These are fine; I like having a couple of these masks on hand (hahaha!) for times when I just want to unwind or as a quick, last minute option to include in a gift bag. This cucumber version is part of the new Sephora Collection Clean line - it smells nice, like cucumber and something else (that I can't pinpoint), and has the cutest cucumber print on them. The serum in this one feels cooling and leaves the slightest bit of tack even after it dries down, which actually works well when following up with a hand cream. These have always made nice gifts and will continue to be repurchased.

Lip Care:

Elizabeth W Cucumber Lip Balm smells like ... cucumber - fresh and refreshing, does a decent job of keeping my lips soft and moisturized. One of the brand's storefronts is located in San Francisco's Ghirardelli Square, which is where I discovered it pre-covid while waiting for out-of-town guests to finish their tour of the Bay. Yes, we had ice cream afterwards. Of course we did. It's a nice balm and having reached for this, I'm making a note to see if the storefront is still open; if so, I'd like to go back and pick up some more treats. I meant from the store, not (just) the ice creamery next door! lol.

@itsfi  I still haven't got around to trying that sheet mask, but it's good to hear you enjoyed it! Love a good cucumber mask! πŸ₯’

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

If only we could get to all of them at once, right @Shosh85?!! πŸ˜† It’s a nice one; it’s one from the newer version that I like.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi ohhh cucumber does look so refreshing! Great line up

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Thank you @lmaster! Cucumber is definitely refreshing! πŸ₯’ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

What a fun theme, @itsfi! The cucumber balm sounds really refreshing, like it would be great for a warm summer day. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@quspork, the balm would be great for warm days; I could see this entire trio working out very nicely on a summer's day.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

This is from last week (Female-owned brands). That being said, I'm not 100% certain this is female owned, but to the best of my ability it seems to be:

 

Seolreim Cosmetics: Blooming Cell Pink Peel 2 Step Mask

 

-It comes with toner (it's just liquid in the package, so I put it on a cotton pad). The toner contains lactic acid. The mask portion contains green tea and honey. The mask fabric was very soft and comfy to wear, and the serum was a bit milky in consistency. My skin felt nice and bouncy and moisturized.

 

-It didn't have instructions for wear time, so I kept it on for about 20 minutes. 

-I think this is a woman-founded company. It looks like Seolreim Cosmetics was developed by dermatologists in the Seolreim Skin Clinic, which is run by female dermatologists.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint  Ahh, milky serum and moisturized bouncy skin sounds so nice! Did it smell like green tea or honey? 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint sounds like a nice multi step mask

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@lmaster  It was good! I always drip the toner out of the foils, though!
