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, not a silly question at all. One of the steps can be a bit potent, but you can tone down the strength by using a less product and applying with a lighter hand / shorter duration or watering it down a little. 

 

Sugarfina has gummy bears in matcha green tea, peach tea and rose tea. They sell them in individual cubes and a set of three. The green tea and peach tea are the best of the trio; the rose tea version, at least the one I had, seemed a bit ... rubbery. πŸ˜¬ 

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

@itsfi  Thanks! I've been trying to be a lot more gentle with my skin lately, so I was curious.

 

I totally know what you mean about a rubbery consistency. I don't think I've tried a sugarfina one like that, but I've definitely had some from other brands that are too dense or something. 

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

@PrettyPaint, I applaud being gentle with your skin. It's so easy to go overboard with over-exfoliating. For gentle exfoliation, I like powder peels like AMOREPACIFIC Mini Treatment Enzyme Peel 0.7 oz/ 20 g or Tatcha The Rice Polish Foaming Enzyme Powder Gentle. If you want more of a chemical peel, I've found First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads to be gentle. 

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

@itsfi  The tatcha is one of my favorites. 😍 Many thanks to @eshoe for helping me to recognize that overuse of exfoliator was the culprit of my foundation pilling issue. Now that I've been a bit more gentle, my makeup is looking better. 

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

@PrettyPaint yay!!! What a relief to have pinpointed the problem and see results so quickly☺️ I wonder how many people are struggling with this issue, thinking it is the makeup, when it’s really aggravated skin? I have been using the Tatcha The Silk Canvas Protective Primer 0.7 oz/ 20 g more regularly now and it never causes pilling anymore. I am so, so happy that your skin is recovering!!

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

@itsfi  Oh my goodness, I agree with @lmaster - you definitely nailed the theme and successfully made me hungry! πŸ˜‹

 

I LOVE that Power Bright! I stocked up on a few as well, but I really wish they'd bring it back! 😒

 

I haven't been too impressed with the masks I've tried from the Sephora Clean line, but you definitely sold me on the Spirulina one - adding it to the cart now! 

Not surprised you like the Green Tea mask! EH has a nice, solid line of masks! I'll be trying this one out soon!

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

Awww, thank you @Shosh85πŸ€— Eating or masking, which comes first in a maskers life?! lol. 

 

Yeah, the lychee and spirulina masks in the new clean collection were favorites, but the Vitamasques Lychee mask dethroned the Sephora lychee mask, so spirulina is now the reigning fave. πŸ‘‘ 

 

The cooling feel of the EH green tea mask is really so nice - soothing, calming and general sense of relaxation. The 0.2mm air therapy series has been a favorite of mine for a while - I am pretty sure I tried and liked one (maybe the hyaluronic acid one?) in the very early days of my masking. It's cool that I'm coming back around to them again. Definitely staples in the mask library. πŸ’–

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

Nailed it!! @itsfi I'm definitely hungry 🀀

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

@lmaster, thanks hon! πŸ€— These were mostly healthy. Mostly. πŸ˜‚

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

Masks good enough to eat - I guess I want a smoothie haha

First up is the real essence coconut mask. This was actually very un scented and did not smell like coconut at all. The fit was a bit large, but it was the perfect shape and has the cut outs in great places. It was well saturated. Overall my skin felt very hydrated and non tacky after use. I would totally use this again! 

Second, the banana sheet mask. I love this mask - it smells like banana runts haha. I’ve reviews this before but it always gives nice refreshing results

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

Love that banana mask, @Kim888 and the coconut one sounds great as well! Such a good tropical summer theme you had going here!

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

I love that banana mask so much @Kim888 

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

@Kim888 all about banana runts!! πŸ˜†

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

@Kim888, something about a banana runts smelling sheet mask just makes a masking sesh even better. πŸŒ

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

@itsfi @Kim888 everything about a banana runts-scented sheet mask makes it betterπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

I loved to eat a strawberry and banana one at the same timeπŸ˜‹ Or strawberry & lime, yum!

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

@eshoe @Kim888 I LOVE a good artificial banana scent.  That mask sounds divine! πŸŒ

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

@Kim888  I LOVE that Banana mask! It really does smell sooo good! πŸŒπŸ˜‹

Choosing just one mask for this was a toughie! Fruit-scented wash-off and sheet masks are some of my favorite ones to use, so I didn’t have to dig far to come up with these. 

The Pacifica Crystal Lava Bubbling Charcoal Mask with Watermelon has a faint scent of true fruit. @lmaster talked this one up, and I am so glad I gave it a try. This is my second bottle, and it appears to have been discontinued. I would be more upset, but both pumps have broke, making it a challenge to use. It’s too bad, because it foams up gently, and leaves my skin feeling so very soft. If they repackaged it, I would definitely buy this one again!

The LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Gummy Bearβ€˜s grape scent is fun, and it would be a real challenge to name another lip care mask that works more effectively and lasts as long as this one does. The perfect formula for me!

The Kocostar Waffle Mask Blueberry was the last of my set and probably my least favorite, though still a wonderful treat to wear. The scent was blueberry-grape, and the abundant jelly serum was a pale, clear violet. The thick, waffle-texture mask (like an oversized gauze) fits and adheres just right. I left it on around 30 minutes and removed, patting the extra serum gently. I love this set, and would 10/10 use again!

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

@eshoe I'm so so so sorry your pumps broke!! What the heck 😳 now I'm super sad because the pineapple version seems to be discontinued as well 😭

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

Yeah I did a search for the pineapple as I had planned to purchase it @lmaster. Turns out I was too late. 🀞🏼 Pacifica is just getting a better pump for them!

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

@eshoe it just never fails!! 😞 Discontinued is the worst word ever
