Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

@itsfi - that bear is so cute.

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

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

@itsfi ohhhh love that lapcos honey mask!!

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

It's such a wonderful mask @lmasterπŸ’›πŸ―πŸ’›πŸ―

 

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?!! πŸ› I missed that entirely. @Shosh85 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Very odd, right @eshoe?!! I had no idea I would find sheet masks while looking online for a housewarming gift!!! πŸ˜²  

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

@itsfi The Briogeo and Lapcos mask are definitely loves of mine! I've never tried that Blithe mask, but it sounds wonderful! What does it smell like? 

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

@Shosh85, the Blithe splash masks came in handy when I had a longer commute; I'd jump in the shower, dilute a capful of the product and splash-splash, pat-pat; hop out of the shower and move on directly to my moisturizer and SPF. Easy-peasy. πŸ˜ƒ

 

I didn't pick up a scent from the foil sample; could have been because I hold my breath when I am splashing the water and the product onto my face. But, I just went to open a new bottle and give it the good ol' sniff test and it has a very light, citrusy (slightly lemon-ish) scent. Pleasant, not overpowering.

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

Thank you for reviewing the blithe mask @itsfi ! I was always curious about that ! I was sad when Sephora stopped carrying them 

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

@Kim888, the Blithe splash masks are great any time but I love it when I'm short on time. Blithe has a really good array of skincare products. I agree its a bummer that they are no longer available at Sephora. Fortunately, OhLolly, YesStyle and Revolve stock their products. Were there any Blithe products you really enjoyed?

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

@itsfi @I used the pressed serum for a while and I really liked that! I guess I kind of forgot about it !

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

@Kim888, there’s been an explosion of wonderful skincare products in the market and with it not being as widely available as before, it makes sense that it might slip your mind. I’m very happy to be seeing them again. πŸ˜ƒ

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

Oh that Blithe mask @itsfi! The Tundra Chaga pressed serum was so, so good...I must imagine this was, too.


Also smiling to myself at β€œTencel is the US brand name for lyocell.” I remember a tee feeling soooo extra comfy and raising my brows at lyocell. Makes for a great tank as well as a mask😊

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

@eshoe @I really liked that pressed serum as well! I haven’t thought about it in a while, I should buy it again!

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

I had forgotten about it too, @Kim888! Time to hunt it down again:)

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

@eshoe, that serum is available online at iHerb, Yes Style, and Jolse (on sale now).

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

@eshoe, splash masks are great; all the ones from Blithe are good! Blithe Tundra Chaga pressed serum has been a repurchase of mine for years. πŸ’— Have you tried any of their other pressed serums?

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

No, I haven’t @itsfi. But I have now added that to my wish listπŸ˜‰

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

Not on theme here. I had planned on using this eye mask during "S" week, but life happened. So now I'll go with T for too late, or maybe twosome? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜† A big thank you to the sweet @itsfi for sending me the eye mask!

Sexy Look Moisturizing Black Eye Mask

This is a medium thick, butterfly-shaped, black eye mask. There was plenty of clear, watery serum, that had no scent I could detect. It adhered well the 20 minutes I had it on. When I removed it, there wasn't any tackiness. My skin looked a smidge brighter, felt nicely moisturized and was noticeably smoother.

This had great results and the shape of it makes it even more fun. I'd gladly repurchase if I happen to see it again. I do remember seeing these at TJ Maxx at one point, so hopefully I'll run into them again!

Side note: Thought it was interesting that Sodium Hyaluronate is listed twiceπŸ‘‡ πŸ€”

OleHenriksen Balance Cold Plunge Pore Mask

This is a turquoise colored clay mask that goes on easy/smooth and has a sort of minty scent. I had it on for about 20 minutes. It has a refreshing and cooling feel that especially feels great after a hot day. It dries down, but not to the point where it's hard, cracking and uncomfortable. It washes off easy and afterward my skin feels super soft and smooth and a little brighter.

I really enjoy using this one and especially love using it with the OH Facial Sauna Scrub (Sauna Scrub 1st, Cold Plunge 2nd) - both of which will definitely be repurchases for me!
