Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase.

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

You're right, @Shosh85, the packaging on the waffle masks is so fun! And I agree, a nice light maple syrup scent would have been really nice with this one. 

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

@quspork  I really liked the Bite lip mask that had a Maple flavor and I guess I was just hoping it'd be similar to that ๐Ÿคทโ€ Oh well 

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

Oh that Bite Maple is so good, @Shosh85 - it also reminds me of brown sugar, yum!

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

@Shosh85, waffle masks are great! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ As are waffles. ๐Ÿง‡๐Ÿ˜‚ I donโ€™t understand why they went with a rose scent? Even if they couldnโ€™t go with a maple scent, why rose? Looking at the inci list, there were other good options too; like pineapple! ๐Ÿ 

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

@itsfi  It didn't even smell specifically like rose to me - I actually don't mind a fresh rose kind of scent, but this just smelled like a mix of floral. Seriously, why? I wouldn't have minded pineapple, but of course it just had to be floral! Good thing the results made up for it ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿง‡

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

@Shosh85, the one good thing about it not smelling like maple or maple syrup is that I'm less inclined to want to eat a waffle. ๐Ÿ˜‚ It sounds like the results of all the masks in this collection that you've used have been excellent! That's fantastic! ๐Ÿ˜

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

@itsfi  Besides this one I've only used the Honey one so far - but I've heard good things about the others! 

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

@Shosh85 @Yum that packaging looks delicious ! Too bad it did not have the waffle scent, but the texture sounds like it was nice !

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

@Kim888  It was a really great mask, with great results, so I can't complain too much! I think because the Honey one smelled like honey, I got my hopes up that this would smell like maple ๐Ÿ 

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

W is for white flowers

Like the other sheet masks from this line, the Etude House 0.2 mm Air Therapy Sheet Mask White Flowers is a very light, ultra soft, super thin cotton mask. Despite its delicate feel, this mask holds quite a bit of the floral-scented, viscous, almost goopy, ampoule essence.  In fact, I'd say it was dripping in it when I removed the sheet from the packet. The floral scent from this mask comes from a blend of Damask rose oil and extracts of chamomile, lotus flower, edelweiss, freesia, and cabbage rose. White florals tend to have a heavier, sometimes heady scent, but that was not the case here. The scent, while discernible, was light, not overpoweringbut if floral scents are not your thing (ahem, @Shosh85), you might want to pass on this one. 
This particular sheet mask aims to brighten and moisturize skin. My complexion has a dewy glow to it, but it's not necessarily that much brighter than what can be expected with most sheet masks. As for its moisturizing claim, it did pretty well. Because of the viscosity of the ampoule essence, there's a noticeable tack that remains after removing the mask and pressing / patting the ampoule essence into the skin. Alcohol is high up on the inci list here (fifth listed ingredient @lmaster), but even so, my skin did not feel dry or tight. Once the ampoule essence is fully absorbed, my skin feels well nourished, moisturized. The ampoule essence masks within this line are great - of the various types of essences in this collection, I feel like the ampoule essence masks work best with my skin in the transition months, late-spring to early summer and the fall months when my skin leans more dehydrated-combo. These ampoule essence masks are definitely ones I would happily use again.

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

This is a really lovely image, @itsfi. I am with @quspork, the entire set is a must, what a fantastic line!  

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

@eshoe, thank you! Love flowers! ๐Ÿ’ They definitely brighten up a desk!  This Etude House line is just fabulous all around! โ™ฅ๏ธ So many great โ€œflavorsโ€. @quspork 

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

Love this line, @itsfi! You've reminded me that I want to pick up the whole line and really do a good comparison of all the masks. I have tried all of them before, but it's been AGES for some of them and even then, I used them haphazardly. So, it'd be great to do a more concentrated trial and compare/contrast all the masks. 

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

@quspork, Iโ€™ve been finding that I really have such a love for sheet masks from what Iโ€™ll fondly call old school Kbeauty brands, like Etude House and this line in particular. Donโ€™t get me wrong, I have many a fave sheet mask from newer brands as well but thereโ€™s something about the brands that have been around for awhile and that were among the first sheet masks I used that really make my skin happy! โ™ฅ๏ธ 

If you do a compare / contrast with all the masks in this line, I would love to know your thoughts! If you choose to do it, Iโ€™d actually be interested in joining you in that experiment! ๐Ÿงช๐Ÿงซ๐Ÿ”ฌ 

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

Oh nice! @itsfi I'm not as scared to use masks or products with alcohol like I was before, as long as it's not on a daily or weekly basis and my skin is nicely hydrated ๐Ÿ™Œ

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

@lmaster, you might like this one. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ I love the material in the EH 0.2mm mask line; it feels so comfortable and the masks are very reasonably priced. โ™ฅ๏ธ

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

@itsfi  Yep, there's a few masks in this line I've purposely avoided because of the possibility of a floral scent... but this one does sound really nice!  I love a good ampoule essence too ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

@Shosh85, smart to avoid them. I havenโ€™t tried all of the sheet masks in this line but from what I have tried, it seems like theyโ€™re all good and it will largely come down to preference for type of essence, scent, and main ingredient. 

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

This masking session was inspired by @itsfi @Shosh85  Thanks!!!!


Trying to fit this with the present week's theme. We'll go with W for "What the ?!?!?!"

23 Years Old Seaweed Silky Mask, a mask with no mouth hole. This was my first experience with this variety of mask. It was slightly cooling at first, but then it started to become a bit itchy towards the end of the experience. It was kind of like wearing a slimy COVID face mask and was quite claustrophobic. Will I repurchase? No.

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

@PrettyPaint I laughed (good thing I wasn't eating!) out loud at this comparison! It's perfect for such a terrifying mask.


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

HA! It's too bad about this one, @PrettyPaint, but I can't definitely see what you're saying about the lack of a mouth hole getting a touch claustrophobic!
