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’–

@itsfi Haha definitely not. The packaging on the one looks like a butt from the thumbnail. 

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

Hahaha @Samtian! πŸ˜† That's funny. Fret not mods, I am not posting in violation of the rules. lol. 

 

Whenever I use an avocado mask, what runs through my mind is which maskers here might really love it and, of course, I think "oh. this will not be a mask samtian likes." 

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

@itsfi That makes me happy! Whenever I see yuckycado stuff while shopping I think of you guys lol.

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

My mask this week the Azure Rose & Collagen face mask. This was ok, but left my skin tacky even the next day, I don't like that feeling.

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

@Samtian yeah that's too long for tackiness to remain, sorry to hear that

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

@Samtian  Dang, that's some long lasting tack. Sorry to hear this didn't work out so well for you! 

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

Wow, that is some serious tack, @Samtian! I can definitely understand not being in a hurry to use that particular mask again. 

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

@Samtian  Darn that it left your skin tacky! 

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

@Samtian  Yikes, that's some long-term tack. 

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

@PrettyPaint I was surprised haha. 

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

@Samtian, I'm so sorry that your skin and your mom's stayed tacky overnight. I completely understand not liking that feeling!! I'm wondering if it is the niacinamide in the mask. It's the third ingredient listed so that suggests there would be a higher volume of it in the mask. Looking through the inci list, that seems to be the ingredient that is more likely to be tacky and take longer to be absorbed. Interesting. 

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

@itsfi I'll have to keep an eye out for that, thank you!

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

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!

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

@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™‚
