Please include the brand and name of the mask you are trying out, as well as a photo if possible. Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, fit, adherence, mask type (hydrating, brightening, exfoliating, detox, sleeping, etc.) as well as your overall experience.

Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

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

@lmaster, Iโ€™m not a huge fan of bubble masks but this is one I would use again. If youโ€™re someone who likes a lot of bubbles foaming up, there are probably better masks out there for you. 

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

@itsfi  

Oh, this one looks interesting. Does it really end up looking like the picture on the mask?

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

@missy94612, the mask does foam up but I didn't get as many bubbles as what shows on the packaging. For me that's not a bad thing, but I can see if others would want it to foam up a lot.

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

@itsfi  I would have loved to have seen your face when a sheet mask started to bubble unexpectedly the first time!  Too funny!  And I personally think stretching the theme makes it fun to see what everyone comes up with!

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

@missjeanie, hahaha! I feel like this might be a good indicator of my expression the first time, minus the fabulous hat and beautiful wavy curls:

Or, maybe this was more like it (gotta love Ramona and how expressive her eyes are):

Yes, I like the opportunity to be creative that comes with the weekly themes, both the actual themes and the letter of the week. 

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

@itsfi  I'm not too crazy about bubble sheet masks, but this definitely sounds like one of the better ones.... those results sound wonderful! Even if the results aren't that great with these, at least there's some entertainment! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85, the results were good. And it smelled like blueberries ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ’™ so thatโ€™s a plus!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Masks like this do serve a purpose so Iโ€™ll probably keep at least one bubble sheet mask in my mask library ๐Ÿ“š, along with possibly a product like the bliss oxygen mask or the ThirstyMud (if both are still around). This one is a nice one; my skin generally responds well to Shangpree skincare products.

V is for Volcanic

Spoiler

Betterskin Premium Volcanic Ash & 3D Sheet Mask

 

Material:

Two piece meshy cotton that was caked/saturated with clay

 

Serum:

Light brown clay

 

Scent:

Not really a scent, just smelled like clay

 

Fit:

Just a smidge too long at the chin and a teensy bit too wide at the temples

 

Wear Time:

The directions say you can leave it on for 40-50 minutes...... I made it to 10 because it just got so tight, dry and uncomfortable. Removal was a little uncomfortable as well and felt like a face-size Biore strip.

 

Tack:

None

 

Results:

After rinsing off the bits of clay that was left over, my face did look a tiny bit brighter and was definitely soft smooth - but it was also very, very dry

 

Repurchase?

Nope. Too uncomfortable. Peeling the mask off my face kind of felt like it was ripping my skin off with it, and that's just not my cup of tea.

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

@Shosh85 - ouch! A face mask should not hurt that much!

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

@Shosh85 ohhh ouch! If it dries that fast, no thanks!!

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

@lmaster  Yeah, it wasn't a very delightful experience for me ๐Ÿ˜

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

A full face pore strip???? @Shosh85 um... no.  wow.  I have a Betterskin mask that is in my 4 left over masks that I pulled out to use up for my miscellaneous may masks... I can't decide now if I should just open it and give it a shot tonight to get it over with or not.  I think it's a different shade of yellow so I may need to do a closer read of the package.  I'm so thankful for the warning either way.  

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

@missjeanie @itsfi  I've tried the yellow (detoxing) one too, and it was much better! It's not a clay mask and is also biocellulose, so no full-face Biore strip effect ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

@Shosh85 yes!  This is the one I found in my stash.  I decided against a detox since the clay sounded so harsh last night.  Maybe next week lol. 

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

@Shosh85 @missjeanie, my pavlov's dog reaction to hearing "full face Biore strip effect" is to touch my hand to my cheeks with a worried look on my face. ๐Ÿ™„ Biocellulose has never sounded better! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I took a pic of the clay one you used Shosh and wrote a big ol' "NO" on it, along with "full face Biore strip". We've all been sufficiently warned! 

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

@itsfi  Bahahaha! ๐Ÿ˜‚ It really should come with a warning label! ๐Ÿ˜†

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

@missjeanie, oh goodness! I misread part of your post - โ€œmiscellaneous may maskโ€ turned into โ€œmischievous may maskโ€ and I just laughed and laughed. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Then I thought, โ€œoh, that could be a fun theme!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜ I think there are several different masks from this brand because I feel like I would remember and wince at a face version of a Biore strip  - similar color blocking pattern as the one @Shosh85 used but with different shades of yellow, maybe? ๐Ÿค” 

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

@itsfi Yes!  I looked at it was a bit more on the orange side, but the same look to the mask for sure.  The one I had wasn't a clay or a two piece.  It shall be saved for another day.  

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

Oh yikes, @Shosh85! That looks like one I may have sent you and if so, I am so, so sorry๐Ÿ˜• I did use this one recently and thought it would be like the biocell exfoliating mask but it was indeed clay. I hope your skin isnโ€™t too ๐Ÿ˜ก!!!

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

@eshoe  Oh, you're so sweet, but this one wasn't from you - I actually got it in a Facetory sub!
My skin is doing fine, it was mostly just really dry. Nothing a good moisturizer can't fix ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Whew @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜ฅ! That must be where I received mine from, too. It didnโ€™t affect my skin the same way, thankfully. I do remember when I used it, realizing that there were two protective layers, not just one; and that I have been leaving one layer on with other clay sheet masks๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Still learning masking lessons, it never stops!
