Your skin was tacky the next day, @Samtian? Did you moisturize afterwards? Yikes, no thank you! 

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

@eshoe Yes I did. My mom's was tacky too and she didn't.

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

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!

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

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

@PrettyPaint, I have this mask! I’m excited about using it after reading your review! 😍 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: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

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

Good tip @PrettyPaint; thank you so much! πŸ‘πŸ˜ 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. πŸ˜‚ 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: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

The oil ingredients look great, @PrettyPaint! Lots of good stuff in there, at least☺️

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

Thanks, @eshoe  πŸ™‚

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

O for OMG ❣️


The Nuori Supreme Moisture Mask can be used as an Overnight mask, though I rarely do. My skin absorbs much of it by the 20 minute mark, so I think it likes it! The Bite Beauty Agave+ Vegan Mini Scrub & Sleep Lip Duo 
sleep mask just feels like a pot version of the tube product to me. Unscented and long-lasting, so far a good replacement for the original.

The Double Dare OMG! Red + Snail Mask was a colorful treat. It is packed with lots of good stuff including very slimy snail mucin. When I first opened the packet to pull out the mask, I thought there was a hair inside of it. Nope, just serum string. It was stringy as I removed the single protective layer, too. There was a little extra serum that I applied to my skin, it was a decent thickness, like the CosRx Essence. I noticed a very slight medicinal scent, which was pleasant. The bright red-orange mask was extra-cushy & soft, with generous eye openings and oversize sides. The adherence was excellent, and remained perfectly in place until it began to dry and I removed around 25 minutes later. My daughter said I looked like a Target model, as my face looked like a bullseye 🎯, ha. 

Surprisingly, the tackiness was minimal. I was expecting more, and would have been totally ok with it as my skin soaked up this mask very happily. There are at least a couple of other ones in this line that I hope to try, as this one was πŸ‘πŸΌ



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

@eshoe minus the hair scare πŸ˜† loving the sounds of this beauty!!

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

Ooh, the Double Dare mask! I have this one in my stash to try out as well, @eshoe so I'm glad to hear that you liked it. Definite A+ for your daughter saying you looked like a Target model lol! 

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

@eshoe  Haha! πŸ˜‚ Your daughter cracks me up! 🎯 Glad to hear you enjoyed this one! πŸ˜ƒThe picture on the packaging totally makes you think it'll be a hydrogel πŸ˜‰

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

@eshoe  That double dare sounds really appealing. Your daughter is totally right on with the target association! πŸ™‚

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

@PrettyPaint snail rarely failsπŸ₯° 🐌!

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

Both of these face masks sound like they're wonderful @eshoe I think I remember you saying the stringiness of the CosRx wasn't pleasant for you.  Did you ever grow accustomed to it? 

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

Ha, no, @missjeanie - I am looking forward to finishing it, even though it does my skin well. The Benton Snail Essence has the same thicker consistency sans string, so that will be my restock;)

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

@eshoe @That sounds very interesting! Great it absorbed well! 

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

@Kim888 it was different, the first I’ve tried with such a cheery, vibrant color! 

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

@eshoe, do you know what key ingredient(s) is/are touted by the Nuori mask? Is the OMG mask the same one that @heartsmyface used last year? Or maybe it was the year before last? It all blurs together these days. 😝 

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

@itsfi here is the Nuori’s ingredient list from Dermstore, where I purchased it. I don’t notice much of a scent, although perfume is listedπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ


Grape/Vitis Vinifera Fruit Water, Damask Rose/Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Squalane (plant Origin), Pentylene Glycol (plant Origin), Shea/Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Cetyl Alcohol, Avocado Butter/Hydrogenated Avocado Oil, Vitamin B3/Niacinamide, Betaine (plant Origin), Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Glycerin (plant Origin), Apricot/Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil, Bisabolol, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Chamomile/Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract, Hyaluronic Acid/Sodium Hyaluronate, Water/Aqua, Xanthan Gum, Maltodextrin, Geraniol*, Citronellol*, Sodium Gluconate, Citric Acid, Fragrance/Parfum*.

*From 100% Natural Essential Oils.

I thought someone here used it, but I couldn’t remember who! Maybe it was @heartsmyface, it looks like one she would try:) As a side note, I was expecting this to be hydrogel for some reason...
