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’–

@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 ❣️

Spoiler
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

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...

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

O is for Oozoo, One Love, organic, and ocular (eye), with an ingredient focus on roses

O - Oozoo + Organic + Ocular.jpg

 

Sheet Mask:

Spoiler
The Oozoo Fresh Capsule Rose Petal Mask is a soft, thin cotton sheet mask with tiny holes all throughout the mask that resembles the inside lining of men's swim trunks. Using this mask is an interactive affair - the mask becomes saturated with a milk, cream-in-oil serum upon "breaking" the rose oil filled capsule and working the oil into the mask (that presumably is already coated with milky cream serum) by massaging the pouch, The scent is subtle and reminiscent of fresh roses.

Adherence is good and fit can be made to work for me with some adjustments to the material at the chin / jawline and the corners of the openings for the eyes and mouth. The mask, with the creamy serum, feels cooling and soothing against my skin and wears comfortably for the entire 45 minutes I left the mask on. I typically leave on masks for an half hour but there was so much serum to this (and extra in the pouch for the other parts of me) that I left it on a bit longer without any concerns that it might dry out. There was no tack or stickiness immediately after removing the mask or after the serum was fully absorbed. My face looked  brightened and felt well moisturized.
 
I'm not typically a fan of interactive masks, but this one, along with the royal jelly version from the brand, are ones I really enjoy and would repurchase.

Wash Off:

Spoiler
The creamy consistency of this activated charcoal and rose kaolin clay grey hued One Love Organics Love + Charcoal Masque makes it easy to spread. It feels cooling and gentle on the skin upon application and throughout the 15 minutes I left it on. Despite containing exfoliants in the form of lactic acid and willow bark extract, I did not feel any tingling or stinging. It does dry down, but does not harden or feel tight, which I attribute to the Cupuacu butter (Brazilian cocoa), aloe vera leaf juice, and alpine rose. My skin feels soft and cleansed without feeling tight or stripped, and looks more clear. I like using this mask as an all over treatment every week or every other week, or on an as-needed basis, as a spot treatment on blemishes, or on my lower T-zone and along my jawline. I received this in a past sub box and would happily use this again. I'm not sure whether I'd repurchase this one, in large part because I really enjoy the Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Honey Mask, which works similar enough to this one that I don't feel like I need both. 

 

Steam Eye Mask:

Spoiler
Steambase Daily Steam Eye Mask - Rose Garden is a 20+ minute aromatherapy steam thermal eye mask. I love steam eye masks. This one has a subtle rose scent and a very cute design. Compared to the Megrhythm gentle steam eye mask, the scent on this Steambase mask is stronger; that is not to say it is strong as the rose scent from the Megrhythm steam eye mask is so subtle it's almost non-existent. This mask feels less gentle than the Megrhythm, both in the feel of the mask itself as well as the experience of being lulled to sleep. I felt that the steam base of the mask felt more rigid over my eyes, where as with the Megrhythm version it wrapped itself around my eyes more smoothly and softly. It could just be this particular Steambase eye mask. I have other varietals from the line and will give them a go to see if this is just a one-off or if from a design and function perspective, they are as noticeably different this particular use. We shall see. Stay tuned.

Origins Clear Improvementβ„’ Charcoal Honey Mask to Purify and Nourish 2.5 oz/ 75 mL 

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

@itsfi curious if you found the Steambase to last as long as the MegRhythm. 

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

@eshoe, I may have fallen asleep 😴  before I could check. Oops. Sorry. 😬 It felt like the Steambase one took longer to warm up though.
