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’–

@eshoe  The results from the test tube mask sound great! I still have one I got from you that I'm excited to try! πŸ˜ƒ

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

This was from the same β€˜batch’ @Shosh85, I hope you enjoy it!

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

Thanks for the feedback on the DDG body peel @eshoe. I've been curious about those, but for the price I'm not sure how much improvement it would be over a good body scrub. 

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

I agree, @quspork - and that is why I felt it should perform better/be more of a β€˜wow’ experience. Maybe for someone who has more specific skin issues, using it regularly might produce greater results. But for the price, I am happy to slather on my scrubs!

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

@eshoe love the test tubes!!!

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

I am a little surprised there aren’t more masks like this, @lmaster! I suppose the packaging is more expensive than just a foil packet. 

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

Yeah that more than likely the reason @eshoe but I still love em

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

V is for Vita.... gifted to me by the wonderful @eshoe!

Faith in Face Vita Jelly Sheet Mask

 

Material:

Thin meshy cotton

 

Serum:

Thick-ish jelly with a lot extra leftover

 

Scent:

It really didn't smell like much. If I focused real hard and sniffed straight into the package I think I could smell something lemony - maybe just very slightly leaning toward cleaner - but I couldn't really smell anything while the mask on.

 

Fit:

Just a little too long at the chin. Good adherence and comfortable to wear.

 

Wear Time:

Half hour

 

Tack:

Light tack that lasted about 45 minutes

 
Results:

Brighter, moisturized, soft & smooth skin with a nice glow.

 

Repurchase?

I think would repurchase this one, especially because I think it'd make a good morning/primer mask and I want to test out that theory πŸ˜‰

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

Oooh! This one sounds like it checks off a lot of boxes @Shosh85. I support you testing out the primer theory. Do it, Shosh!! Buy another one. For science. πŸ˜‰ 

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

@itsfi  Yup, I loved that jelly serum and the results were soo good! Definitely wouldn't mind repurchasing..... especially for science πŸ˜‰

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

The results definitely sound nice for this one, @Shosh85!

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

@quspork  The results were really great and so was that jelly serum - no complaints here! πŸ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85 sounds great!! Nice to have a primer mask line up too πŸ˜‰

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

@lmaster  Definitely! I should really start making a list! πŸ˜ƒ

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

This line has so much serum packed in to that pouch @Shosh85! You are certainly a very patient masker to wait that long for the tack to wear off ☺️

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

@eshoe  Love it when masks are loaded with serum! Tack has never bothered me, in fact I kinda like it - it makes a good primer for makeup and helps other skincare products 'stick' better! Thanks again! 😘

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

Awww you are so welcome, @Shosh85 πŸ€—

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

Hey maskers! Here are some Memorial Day sales on masks that y'all may be interested in. πŸ˜

This πŸ‘‡ had me cracking up, but so perfect! Yes, try one sheet mask before picking up a box! Have they been listening to our conversations?! β¬‡οΈ Trying not to tag folks who are working through their stash or are on a mask no-buy.  @Shosh85 @lmaster @PrettyPaint @Kim888 @emaisgr8 @quspork @emaisgr8 @SAlyFitz @Samtian If I'm missing someone or if folks who are on a no-buy would like to be tagged in the future, let me know.

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

@itsfi

Are there any sheet masks you would thinks are worth picking up at one of these sales? There's just so many to choose from; I don't know where to begin.

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

@missy94612, masksheets has a pretty good selection and its set up is a little easier to navigate than yesstyle. I tend to really like the following brands for sheet masks: Mediheal, Leaders, Papa Recipe, Etude House. The new Innisfree ones are nice too.

 

For ingredients, I go for honey / royal jelly / propolis, aloe, snail, hyaluronic acid (may be listed as sodium hyaluronate), green tea, catctus for hydration. Ceramides, olive oil, honey, milk, or milky creamy serums for nourishment. Centella asiatica (cica), chamomile, aloe and calendula, allantoin for soothing. Pearl, niacinamide, licorice root for brightening.

 

A lot of it is trial and error to see what your skin likes and doesn't like, either as a single ingredient or in combination with things. I've found it also helps to identify a few of the maskers here who have a similar skin type to yours to see what masks they rate highly. 

 

I generally like to pick out my sheet masks but there can be so many to choose from, as you said. Signing up for a subscription box can be helpful to get a variety of masks to try until you get to a place where you have a better idea of what works for your skin or what types of material or ingredients you like. I did Facetory for a time and many others here have as well, including @eshoe. If I were to do it again, I would just say to pick a sub box that allows you pick a subscription period, as opposed to being locked in for a year - most have 3 and 6 month plans. You'll get a good amount and variety with just one box. And if I pass on a lesson learned, it's keep an eye on how many sheet masks you have - they can pile up pretty quickly. lol.

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

@itsfi  

Thank you! You're always so helpful and knowledgeable. I followed your recommendation and checked out the masksheets store. You were right - there's a good selection. I picked up a few of the ones on the list you and @Shosh85 made for me. I don't use sheet masks as often as the two of you, so I only picked up a handful, enough for a few nights of masking with the husband.
