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

@itsfi  Both the Ceuracle mask and the AM Piggyhead masks sound wonderful! Repurchasing that Ceuracle mask definitely seems like a no-brainer ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ

 

The Farmskin Salad masks are nice - perfect everyday masks. Too bad about the plastic scent though! It's been awhile since I've tried this one, but I didn't mention any plastic smell in my notes - so now I really want to go see if I have another one so I can do some re-sniffing! ๐Ÿ‘ƒ

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

@Shosh85, of the 3 varietals in the Dr. Ceuracle sheet masks, I like 2 a lot - propolis one and this tea tree one. The hyaluronic acid one is good too, but the propolis and tea tree masks stand out. ๐Ÿ˜ I really like a few of their skincare products too (including their propolis line) so I may pick up more masks when a skincare haul is in order. Or, I may just pick up the sheet masks on their own - hahaha! 

 

Yeah, I'm not sure what happened with the Farm Skin sheet mask; it's the first time I've picked up a "plastic" scent from that brand. Re-sniffing. ๐Ÿ‘ƒ Love it. ๐Ÿ˜† If you do have another mask from Farm Skin and use it, I'd be very interested in hearing whether yours has a plastic smell to it or if this one was just a one-off (likely). 

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

@itsfi another T for Twinning with @Shosh85 for the tea masks ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ™Œ

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

@lmaster @itsfi  Yay! for twinning! ๐Ÿ‘ฅ ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ

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

Yes @lmaster! Great โ€œTโ€ tie in - love it! ๐Ÿ˜Š The Dr Ceuracle tea tree mask was a nice one too! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Itโ€™s never a bad thing to be twinning with the fabulous @Shosh85! ๐Ÿค— 

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

T is for Tea Tree

Rael Beauty Tea Tree Sheet Mask

 

Material:

Thin comfortable bamboo sheet

 

Serum:

Clear, watery 

 

Scent:

Tea tree. Smelled a little strong if I stuck my nose right in the package, but wasn't too noticeable while the mask was on my face. Honestly though, tea tree doesn't really bother me - to me, it's better than floral. ๐Ÿ˜…

 

Fit:

I little too long at the chin and not long enough at the forehead

 

Wear Time:

Half hour.

 

Tack:

Very light, and only stuck around for a few minutes.

 

Results:

I felt a nice cooling feeling while the mask was on. When I removed it my skin felt refreshed, soft and smooth. Skin tone looked more even.

 

Repurchase?

If not for having plenty of backups, this is one I'd consider repurchasing. It's always nice to have a good tea tree mask on-hand ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

@Shosh85, I laughed and laughed when I got to the part where you said โ€œif not for having plenty of backupsโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚ Ohhh, backups - love โ€˜em but they can get in the way of a large mask haul. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

 

Agree about having a good tea tree mask on hand. I used the Etude House 0.2mm Tea Tree earlier in the week and not bad; have another in the queue for this weekend. Do you have one (or two, or ... ๐Ÿ˜†) that you like to keep on hand? 

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

@itsfi  I would have to say my most favorite Tea Tree sheet mask so far is the Ariul 7 Days one. Other favorites are from Whole Foods, Facetory and Mediheal. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Taking notes @Shosh85๐Ÿค— Thank you!! I'm pretty sure I have the Mediheal tea tree mask and can't imagine not liking it - it is Mediheal, after all. I think there's only been one Mediheal mask that I've considered a pass or no. I may possibly have the Whole Foods version too; gosh, now that I think about it, I haven't been inside a Whole Foods since about a week into the lockdown last year. ๐Ÿค” Will check my stash for both of those. I feel like I had the Ariul mask in my stash at some point. ๐Ÿ˜‚  Good to know that the Facetory tea tree is one you like. I have a vague recollection that I used their acai mask and thought it was just okay. 

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

I am with you on the โ€œTea Tree > Floralโ€ @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผBamboo is always a plus, too. Itโ€™s interesting that this line has masks that are each geared toward different time periods throughout the month, very well thought-out!

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

@eshoe In general, I would say that floral is my least favorite scent. ๐Ÿ’

 I definitely think this would another line of masks that would be nice to try out - I'll be trying the hydration one next! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85 ohh I may have this one? Great to hear it's one worth having a back up

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

@lmaster  It's a nice one! I'm glad I have backups, but to be fair, I only have them because I happened to find a 10 pack at Burlington Coat Factory - good thing I liked it ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

T for Throwback with a nod to honey, one of my favorite skincare ingredients, and in keeping with the "throwback" theme, going back to last week's letter of the week, with a S for Shosh85 who very kindly and generously gifted me the LAPCOS Honey Nourishing Mask.

Ingredient Spotlight: HoneyIngredient Spotlight: Honey

 
Blithe Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey Patting Splash Mask 
Spoiler
I find splash masks like this Blithe Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey Patting Splash Mask to be efficient and effective. Lactic acid, honey, and citrus fruit extracts and oils are notable ingredients in this version of Blithe's splash mask (the brand also carries a green tea version as well as a berry one). These splash masks are highly concentrated and must be heavily diluted with water before applying to the face. As the name suggests, these types of masks are applied by splashing the diluted product onto and patting it into the skin. There are several ways to use splash masks; my preferred approach is to use it in the shower, pouring a small amount in a cupped palm and then splashing and patting my face with the water from the showerhead running and the liquid for about 15 - 20 seconds. Every time I use a Blithe splash mask, my skin looks and feels clear, soft and smooth with a fresh faced radiance. It's also perfectly primed and prepped for moisturizer, sunblock and makeup afterwards and that fresh faced glow from the mask really comes through beautifully under makeup.
 
Splash masks can be used day or night, but my preference has been to use it in the mornings. They're especially great for those mornings when I am running late or when I want to streamline my skincare routine but still get the benefits of an exfoliating product, toner and essence in a fraction of the time. If used as part of a regular skincare routine, it can be used 1-2 times per week. 
Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Honey Moisture Deep Conditioning Mask
Spoiler
It would be an understatement to say that I love the Briogeo hair masks. Nancy Twine has done a stellar job at creating beautiful treatments and masks for hair of all lengths, types and textures. 
 
The Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Honey Moisture Deep Conditioning Mask (which I affectionately refer to as the Briogeo honey bear mask) is a limited edition honey version of the brand's original Don't Despair, Repair mask. This honey version is my hands-down favorite of all the hair masks from Briogeo.  The one con is that it's limited edition, but it has been brought back before, most recently in a LE holiday set, and I hope Briogeo continues to bring this beauty back time and time again. Until they decide to make it a permanent part of their collection (which I'm all for!!), I will pick it up a couple of bottles whenever this honey bear hair mask comes out of hibernation. 
LAPCOS Honey Nourishing Sheet Mask: Where to even begin?! Well, with manners. Thank you @Shosh85  for sending this fabulous mask my way. 
Spoiler
tl;dr: Soft, thin lyocell sheet mask heavily saturated in a sweet, lightly-scented essence having a jelly-like consistency. The honey and centella asiatica work with other good-for-the-skin ingredients for soft, smooth, dewy and nourished complexion after just 30 minutes of wear. A slight tack remains after the serum has been fully absorbed but becomes undetectable once moisturizer is applied. A definite repurchase.
 
Fun Fact:  Tencel is the US brand name for lyocell.

Mask:
LAPCOS Honey Nourishing Mask

Material:
Soft, thin Lyocell. It's very delicate and while it didn't tear, it is very pliable.

Essence:
Subtle and sweet-scented jelly-like consistency. Scent dissipates almost immediately and is undetectable once the mask is applied to the face. There is quite a bit of essence which is great for using on other parts of the body, but it presented   a challenge to keep it from dripping all over. 

Fit & Adherence:Adherence was great. Fit is fine; the mask is just a smidge too wide at the temples and a hair too long at the chin but not so much as to require some sheet mask surgery with my mini scissors.
 

 



Openings for the eyes and mouth were very large; almost excessively so with the eyes. Iโ€™m not sure whether thatโ€™s just how the mask is designed (doubtful) or if I may have stretched it out more in my efforts to unfold the mask which surprisingly, I had quite a bit of trouble with.  I'm fairly certain it was the latter since the shape of the eye openings looked out of place too. 

Notable Ingredients:Honey extract: anti-bacterial; anti-inflammatory; hydrating; nourishing

Centella asiatica (cica):  soothing; healing; reduces redness

Claim(s)
Nourishing

Results:
Soft, dewy, nourished skin after just 30 minutes. Thereโ€™s the slightest bit of tack to the touch even after the serum has been fully absorbed (and that can remain on the skin for 10+ minutes), but that tack becomes undetectable once I followed up with the rest of my skincare routine.

Repurchase?:Absolutely
 

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

@itsfi - that bear is so cute.

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

Right @missy94612?!!! Love packaging, the scent and the results from that honey bear hair mask. It's just an overall great product; if only it were part of the permanent collection!

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

@itsfi ohhhh love that lapcos honey mask!!

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

It's such a wonderful mask @lmaster๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿฏ

 

FYI for the Lapcos honey sheet mask lovers out there, it's on clearance for $1.99 online at Crate & Barrel. I know I haven't been in a C&B in a while, but when did they start selling sheet masks?!! ๐Ÿ› I missed that entirely. @Shosh85 

 

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

Very interesting!! @itsfi thanks so much for the heads up!! ๐Ÿ™Œ

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

I have the same question @itsfiwhen did they start selling sheet masks???

Probably right around the time they realized the markup was so spectacular ๐Ÿ™„

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

Very odd, right @eshoe?!! I had no idea I would find sheet masks while looking online for a housewarming gift!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
