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’–

Yaaaaaaay!! @itsfi so glad you enjoyed the hand mask as much as I did ๐Ÿ™Œ

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

@lmaster, it was a good one. In my top 2 for hand masks. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ 

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

Yeah, I was not impressed at all by the lavender Flower Fusion mask a while back, @itsfi. The scent was just overwhelming and the rest of the masking experience did not make up for it. I'm thinking this is a problem across most of that line, but do keep us updated if you decide to try out any of the others. 

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

@quspork, hearing your experience and @Shosh85โ€™s with the masks from this line makes the idea of giving this one another try less desirable and less likely. I know not all sheet masks are and not everyone feels the same way about a sheet mask but it doesnโ€™t appear as though the other masks in the line would perform significantly better. Weโ€™ll see. The likelihood seems even less likely than before though.

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

@itsfi  Yuck! Paint thinner?! Good grief, that's even worse than floral! Haha! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I tried a mask from this line a while back and wasn't too fond of it either. Sorry this one was such a bummer!

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

@Shosh85, ha! It is most definitely worse than the most heady and cloying floral fragrance out there. I was so taken aback by it that I poked my nose into the packet (yes I did!) just to make sure that was what I smelled. Sadly, it was. ๐Ÿ˜” 

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

@itsfi paint thinner is one of the worst scents I could think of adhering to your facial area. That sounds absolutely awful! Thankfully the OhK! Hand mask more than made up for it. I plan to try that one at some point, it really does sound lovely.

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

@eshoe, it would never have occurred to me that paint thinner could be a fragrance for a sheet mask! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I think youโ€™d like the Oh K! Violet hand mask! It performs well and the scent really is quite lovely.

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

Oh my gosh... so many masks! I want to recommend the Sephora collection watermelon after sun mask. they are discontinuing the old one and repackaging it into a new one that is clean. I don't know if they are the same feeling yet, but i really love the original. It not only cools and soothes sunburns, but it also visibly helps them. it helps a lot with me and my sister because we have fair skin and get burnt very easily. Also only $5:00!

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

@MaddyMads511  I've tried the original, and it is so refreshing, especially on a hot day! ๐Ÿ‰โ˜€๏ธ

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

@MaddyMads511 thank you for the heads up and recommendation!! I have both of these but have not used the clean version yet. I love that there is extra coverage on the dรฉcolletรฉ area. Perfect for the sunburns that inevitably happen!

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

@MaddyMads511, the original version is such a nice one. I just finished using both of them and will post a more detailed review soon, but the original and clean version have a lot of similarities. One difference is the size, shape and feel of the decollete part of the mask, which is much larger/wider and thicker in the new clean version. ๐Ÿ‰

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

A cute little panda to meet last weekโ€™s challenge, which was a challenge in itself as my mask drawer is nearly empty! I was very thankful for this little panda gem, and to @Shosh85 for another entertaining theme ๐Ÿ˜„




On a Friday, too - so the Summer Fridays R + R Mask 2.25 oz/ 64 g  fit in just right ๐Ÿ™‚ This one is nearing the end, unfortunately. I love the scent in this rich, emollient yet gritty (a little harsh, I think). It is so visually appealing as well, with its thick, clear jelly flecked with deep rose and white granules. As I am approaching the end, I am contemplating a repurchase. There are lots of masks that I would repurchase, but donโ€™t for one reason or another. This may fall into that category, unless a solo mini becomes available. This has lasted nearly two years, shifting locations every few months in the hopes that I would remember I had it and use it more frequently...and that is truly more than I intended to say about this one!


The Biossance Balm (cannot tag the pot, maybe it is only in a tube now?) is a love. It reminds me of the Tatcha The Kissu Lip Mask 0.32 oz/ 9g in just about every way. I have a small sample of the by Terry Rose which I cannot wait to compare to this one! At any rate, I have temporarily banned myself from lip balm purchases for at least the first month of my no buy because there are categories of products I have actually run out of that take priority. But I would buy all of them if I could. Tubes, jars, pots....I love them all!


Finally the byCien Tuchmaske Splashy Panda. I pulled this one from the MOTM box awhile ago, and it was most definitely a cute little one to try.


I felt a bit like I was prepping for a Dia de los Muertos festival! 

One thing I did differently in my routine before applying this mask is use my Violette_Fr Boum-Boum Milk in lieu of mist and toner. WOW. I have found its purpose in my life. I feel like it helped the mask adhere better, and my skin felt positively softened and soothed after my masking. But back to the mask! It had a soft, almost fruity scent that may have been attributed to the prunus serrulata flower extract (Japanese flowering cherry) or the perfume (last ingredient). Either way, it was light and not noticeable one on. The fit was pretty good, and I left it on for a solid 25 minutes before removing. My skin responded well to this, and I really appreciate the opportunity to try it. Thank you to whoever included it in the box! And thank you @lmaster  for all of the work you have put into keeping it active and running. You are amazing!






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

@eshoe - omg, that panda mask is so cute.

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

@nuinui933 printed masks kind of get a pass, donโ€™t they? Cuteness makes any less than desirable nuances less noticeable, and I am ok with thatโ˜บ๏ธ

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

Awwww how cute!! Sounds like you definitely found a pre mask product!! Great idea โ˜บ๏ธ @eshoe 

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

Yep I am loving the multi-functionality of it, @lmaster! Extra goodness in less steps๐Ÿ˜

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

@eshoe, that's a cute panda mask. ๐Ÿผ It'll feel good when you are all done with the SF mask; that one felt like a never ending tube. It smelled wonderful and I liked it so I didn't have any complaints. By the way, is that the Summer Fridays R + R Mask 2.25 oz/ 64 g? The tag product looks like their pumpkin-based exfoliating mask. 


Interesting that you found the R+R to be a little harsh; I've read other reviews that have mentioned similar experiences. With your next use of the mask, you might want to try adding a little bit of cleansing oil to the pads of your fingertips as you massage and rinse off the R+R mask. I would do that to help tone down the filmy/waxy feel that would sometimes remain from the jelly part of that mask.

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

Oops, good catch, @itsfi! I did tag the incorrect one, thank you. The oil cleansing cloth sounds like a solution I wish I would have known about oh, maybe a year and a half ago ๐Ÿ˜„ I will remember to put that to use for the remaining product.

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

@eshoe  Oh, what a great looking panda mask! ๐Ÿผ The results sound great and the Violette_Fr Boum-Boum Milk sounds like it was a wonderful addition! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85 it is always a relief to open a mask and find a fruity scent; even more so when the packaging has no clue as to what it will be like ๐Ÿ˜„


The Boum-Boum has found just the right place in my routine, I am happy to say. I might even try diluting it a bit for summer, or use it 1-2x a week as it is heavier than just my Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist 2.53 oz/ 75 mL and Pixi Milky Toner. It will be interesting to see how it performs during the winter!
