Each week features a different theme, as well as a letter of the alphabet for coming up with new masking ideas. 


Please include the brand and name of the mask you are trying out, as well as a photo if possible. Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase.

@Shosh85 I could pick up other scents, but the honey did stand out more to me, I definitely enjoyed it, thank you again!!

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

@lmaster@Shosh85 @sent this one my way as well and I agree-it was lovely! Happy to hear your skin loved it๐Ÿ’–

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

Oh yes!! @eshoe can't beat a great honey mask ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

This kind of fits this week's challenge by a bit of a stretch. 

 

It's the Dr. Gloderm TABRX Whitening Mask. I'm not sure where I got this from - I think it probably came in a facetory box. I will put it out there that I'm uncomfortable with the mask label because even if it's not the intention, I do think it suggests a singular ideal of beauty...

 

Anyhow, it came with an oil capsule, so that's where the O will come from. I really am unsure of the majority of its claims. The Glutathione in the mask is probably meant to be the skin brightening agent. Upon just one use, I obviously can't tell a difference. The mask did adhere very well and it was nourishing. I applied the oil capsule afterwards, and I think I applied a bit too much as I'm quite oily now...haha. 

 

My skin is feeling very moisturized, though, I'll say!

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

@PrettyPaint I agree, I hope companies can change the wording on the mask claims, otherwise, sounds like a decent mask

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

@PrettyPaint, I have this mask! Iโ€™m excited about using it after reading your review! ๐Ÿ˜ It has a later expiration date of the masks I have remaining in my stash so I was setting it aside for another time but I may just have to use it sooner rather than later. Loading my face with oils has been a good way for me of keeping it moisturized and nourished. 

I 100% agree with you on the labeling of the mask and appreciate your commenting on it. I think some (though not all) Kbeauty brands are moving from how they have marketed masks in the past as whitening. It seems the larger brands are making the move more quickly than others to labeling masks as being a brightening mask. 

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

@itsfi  I can't wait to see your thoughts when you try it. By the way, after I used it, I read that you can actually apply some of the oil capsule before applying the mask to help it absorb better. The oil never fully absorbed with me applying solely afterwards, so this may be something you could try. 

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

Good tip @PrettyPaint; thank you so much! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ I made a note on the back of the mask to do just that. I'll tag you when I post my thoughts on this one. So interesting that the oil didn't fully absorb for you when you used it after the mask. I have a feeling my face will be very happy to in some more oils. ๐Ÿ˜‚ It seems to be that way after I've had a long day of wearing a mask. It can't seem to get enough oils. Sooo dry.  

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

The oil ingredients look great, @PrettyPaint! Lots of good stuff in there, at leastโ˜บ๏ธ

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

Thanks, @eshoe  ๐Ÿ™‚

M is for magnificently moisturizing masks

More M's - Moonshot Moonbright MaskMore M's - Moonshot Moonbright Mask

Moonshot Moonbright Mask is a soft, very thin microfiber sheet mask coated in a slightly sweet, slightly earthy floral-scented, light-but-rich creamy essence. Adherence is wonderful, and fit along the perimeter and at the corners of the eyes and mouth can be adjusted for a more tailored fit. This mask claims to moisturize, brighten, and tone the skin. I'm not sure about that latter claim, but it definitely moisturizes and brightens. My skin felt soft, smooth and very nourished after having this mask on for my usual half hour. My complexion also had a fresh, bright, dewy radiance to it. This is a love and an absolute repurchase . . . once I figure out where I picked it up. ๐Ÿค”

 

M - Dr Belmeur moisturizing.jpg

The Face Shop Dr. Belmeur Mild Derma Deep Moisturizing Mask is a fresh, floral-and-citrus scented, cream serum soaked gauze-y mask that beautifully clings to the skin in a soft, cozy, nourishing embrace, soothing and moisturizing it along the way for, in my case, an half hour. My only regret is that I waited so long to use this wonderful sheet mask. A definite repurchase.

 

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

Hmmm, the scent on the Moonbright sounds intriguing @itsfi. Earthy can be so soothing. The Dr. Belmeur also sounds familiar, going to have to check that one out as well.

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

@eshoe, the scent on the Moonbright mask was a nice one!

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

@itsfi  Oh nice, 2 great masks! Love that they both have creamy serums ๐Ÿ˜ I've never heard of/seen that Moonbright mask! It sounds wonderful- moisturizing and brightening is a great combo!

 

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

@Shosh85, yes to a moisturizing and brightening mask with a creamy serum! That combo always makes my skin happy. โ™ฅ๏ธ It figures that the Moonshot Moonbright mask isnโ€™t readily accessible. ๐Ÿ˜ Isnโ€™t that always the way? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Iโ€™m pretty sure I picked this up at a local shop. The entire Moonbright line seems to be mostly OOS which makes me wonder if I picked this mask up a long time ago, longer than I thought. 

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

Would love to know if you figure out where to purchase the moonbright mask from @itsfi 

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

@lmaster, Iโ€™ll definitely let you know if I can figure it out. Youโ€™re one of the lovelies who I thought would really like these masks! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I have a feeling I may have picked up the moonbright mask at one of the local Asian beauty stores pre-pandemic. Interestingly, I saw that Sephora Singapore carried or once carried the brand!

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

Last nightโ€™s was intended for โ€˜M,โ€™ 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 โ€˜Illuminating, Plumping & Moisturizingโ€™ 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. Itโ€™s like getting honey in your hair; funny, but not fun to get outโ˜บ๏ธ 

I left it on around 15 minutes, and found it easy to rinse off. I noticed little granules in removing it that I hadnโ€™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.

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 โ€˜Mโ€™ 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 couldnโ€™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 hadnโ€™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:
