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

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

@missjeanie, figuring out what would be a good target number for me was a bit of a challenge. My points of reference was either 10 (when I first started) and that lasted me a two months or waaay too much. πŸ˜‚ For me, what helped to at least get me started was to think about my purchasing practices when it came to sheet masks and also what mix of sheet masks (tried-and-true favorites vs new-to-me masks) I wanted in my mask library.

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

Awww, thank you @missjeanie! Yeah, 100. I can just imagine the looks on the faces of non-maskers here if I said 100 sheet masks. They'd think I was nuts. I'm not saying I'm not nuts, but not because I think 100 is a nice round number of sheet masks. Hahaha! πŸ€£ I felt like if I left it at 100, too easy to just go over that if there was a sheet mask that caught my eye. Y'all are the only ones who understand. 

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

Oh I understand all too well @itsfi  lol.  I'll be happy if I'm under 500 at the end of the year at the rate I was collecting for a couple of years there!

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

You can do it @missjeanie! πŸ‘Š I know you can . . . and will!!! Just have to keep chipping away at it. You got this! 

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

@itsfi I'm curious how many companies ever bring back discontinued products.  I can't think of anything I've ever liked that was brought back.

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

@greeneyedgirl107, yes, sadly not many. Herbivore Bakuchiol serum was discontinued. They had so many people asking to bring it back that the company looked into a way to reformulate it. They brought it back, in a reformulation, last year. 

There are a lot of Korean brands that produce sheet masks and then there are non Korean brands that make sheet masks too that the market has so many options (and competitors) out there. It’s been a while since this mask was discontinued so it’s not likely that it’ll return, but I keep holding out hope! 🀞🏼 It’s just so good!

Herbivore Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Smoothing Serum 1.0 oz/ 30 mL 

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

@itsfi  I was SOO SAD when I found out this one was discontinued! Not only is it my most favorite mask from the brand, it's just a favorite in general. My heart can't take any more of these discontinuations! 😩

Oh my goodness, congratulations on reaching your sheet mask goal! That's super impressive! I'd be happy to just get down to 200 πŸ˜‚

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

Wholeheartedly agree @Shosh85! This was such a good one - perfect all year round for me. πŸ’– I thought about holding onto it until the expiration date but didn't want to chance it drying out. Not a problem though as this was, even a month away from the expiration date, so full of the essence. Oh my gosh, tell me about it. I hear that a line or specific mask I really like, or even love, is being discontinued and I just feel so . . .  deflated. πŸ˜© I understand it needs to be done, but it just seems like so many of them all at once. Sigh. 

 

Awww, thank you! I went through the bulk of what was in my collection last year. I go back and forth whether I want to double mask until the day before the spring sale - that would get me down to 50 sheet masks, but I don't know if I have the discipline in me to do it over the next couple of weeks. We'll see, I might take it easy and just see how it goes. It does feel good to get to that number. Now, I just need to be extra mindful about not making huge hauls and not accumulating so many sheet masks. Easier said than done! πŸ˜

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

Last night’s was intended for β€˜M,’ but happily snuggled right into the theme for the week of most comfortable mask, too!

The Leahlani Meli Glow Illuminating Nectar Mask from the Mask Magic Kit is touted as an β€˜Illuminating, Plumping & Moisturizing’ mask. Most importantly, it has a berry scent- like strawberry or raspberry jam. Delicious! Hawaiian raw honey is the main ingredient, and it is sticky. I accidentally pulled my headband down, releasing my bangs into the mess. It’s like getting honey in your hair; funny, but not fun to get out☺️ 

I left it on around 15 minutes, and found it easy to rinse off. I noticed little granules in removing it that I hadn’t when applying it to my skin. It is a bit of a challenge to apply as it feels like a thick paste. My skin seems smoother after using this, but mostly I enjoy it for the sensory experience. 

Ingredients:

MASK

*HONEY (RAW HAWAIIAN), KAOLIN (ROSE CLAY), ROSE CANINA (ROSEHIPS), SODIUM HYALURONATE (HYALURONIC ACID), HELIANTHUS ANNUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL, EUTERPE OLERACEA (ACAI) FRUIT OIL, *PASSIFLORA EDULIS (PASSIONFRUIT) SEED OIL, CARICA PAPAYA (PAPAYA) SEED OIL, **FRAGARIA VESCA (STRAWBERRY) FRUIT EXTRACT, TETRAHEXYLDECYL ASCORBATE (VITAMIN C ESTER), **PSIDIUM GUAJAVA (GUAVA) FRUIT EXTRACT, LEUCONOSTOC FERMENT FILTRATE, AQUA, MUSA SAPIENTUM (BANANA) FRUIT EXTRACT, **CITRUS PARADISI (GRAPEFRUIT) FRUIT EXTRACT, **AVERRHOA CARAMBOLA (STARFRUIT) FRUIT EXTRACT, CLAY (KAOLIN), ***PARFUM, ASCORBIC ACID, TOCOPHEROL

*ORGANIC **WILDCRAFTED ***PROPRIETARY BLEND OF 100% NATURAL ESSENTIAL OILS, FRUIT AND PLANT EXTRACTS.

So excited that the Biossance is now available in a tube! When I finish my first FS Laneige, Biossance Squalane+ Rose Vegan Lip Balm 0.51 oz/ 15 mL will be next on the list. I am hoping the consistency is the same.

Finally, the Missha Mascure Propolis mask seemed perfect for β€˜M’ week (thank you @Shosh85 for this beauty!). When I opened it, I was delighted to find a very unique scent that was familiar but I couldn’t place it. Peppery honey? It was so good. There was plenty of rich, milky serum, enough to reapply to my forehead and cheeks. The mask itself is like a cozy, reading chair blanket and adhered to my skin for a good 30 minutes before reluctantly removing. There was only minimal tack, and interestingly, the areas where the mask covered my skin were slightly lighter than where it hadn’t. I immediately went online to find out where I can replenish this one:) Missha is one of my favorite brands, and this confirmed it once again. 

Note: The package lacked an English translation for ingredients, but Google translate treated me to this:

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

Everything about this one sounds fabulous! @eshoe 

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

@eshoe Those sound like really great winners!

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

@eshoe  That Leahani mask sounds so nice.  I dig the sticky wash offs lol

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

@eshoe  Everything looks lovely, but I am especially intrigued by the Leahlani Meli Glow Illuminating Nectar Mask. πŸ™‚

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

@eshoe  I honestly didn't love the scent on the sheet mask, (I picked up more floral than anything) but I really loved the results. I'm so happy it worked out great for you too! πŸ˜ƒ

One for Vitamins week

IMG_20210319_104907716.jpg

  •  this was more of a medium thickness sheet, it fit my face really well, the chin did have issues staying in place
  • Clear serum in the package, a little extra
  • I don't recall any strong or noticable scent with this particular mask
  • Wear time was 15 minutes
  • My skin felt nicely moisturized and looked less dull πŸ™Œ no lasting tackiness
  • I do like this brand, but this one didn't wow me enough to want to seek it out, but I'd use it if I received itIMG_20210319_104911205.jpg

     

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

@lmaster, I *think* I may have tried this Purlisse one in the early days of masking. Agree that it was nice, but not a standout mask. The watermelon mask remains my top choice from the brand, from a results and scent perspective! πŸ˜‰ πŸ‰

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

@itsfi yes the watermelon scent definitely helps boost my preference for it πŸ˜†

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

@lmaster  I haven't tried this one yet, but I absolutely loved the watermelon one! Sorry this one wasn't super impressive. 

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

@Shosh85 I love the watermelon version too and the charcoal πŸ‘

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

The β€˜less dull’ part sounds good, @lmaster! I’ve tried this one too, and remember not being overly impressed by it. Still...I think a mediocre masking > no masking at allπŸ‘πŸΌ
