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’–

Haha, just now getting caught up on the post and so NOW I see this one, @itsfi! πŸ˜† I do find it interesting that the scent was just a bit different for each of us. I really got no fruity or floral notes on this one. I do wonder if it's more an interpretation on our parts or if the newer vs older version (mine expires in a couple of months so it age could play a part) is just slightly different enough to push a certain scent more forward. There's one or two ingredients that are flipped in the lists, so it's possible I guess. 

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

@quspork, haha! I'm still asking myself "how'd you pick up fruity and floral?" This just firms up in my mind that I need to repurchase this one and see about getting the one you picked up as well. This is going to fall in the "stay tuned" camp. πŸ˜‚

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

A perfect fit?? @itsfi yaaaaaaay!!! So glad you love it

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

Thanks @lmaster. Perfect or near perfect fits with sheet masks are a rarity for me, so I definitely take note when it comes my way. πŸ˜Š

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

@itsfi   

I've not heard of a couple of those ingredients before. You always have such interesting and unique masks. 

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

Yeah @missy94612! Hahaha! I am drawn to new skincare ingredients in the KBeauty space; well, pretty much any skincare space. πŸ˜‚ There's been a lot more soothing ingredients in the skincare market and that makes sense with all the mask wearing we were doing. I'm still partial to aloe, honey, calendula and centella asiatica, but I also just love seeing what's new out there and giving it a go. 

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

@itsfi  

A calendula mask sounds like it would be very soothing. I've really liked the Kiehl's calendula mask.

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

What a unique plant, @itsfi. It looks like it’s one that needs a lot of water and TLC! 

The scent on the mask sounds extremely intriguing, too. Adding another one to the list;)

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

@eshoe, the scent on this mask kept me busy and perplexed. I was able to find a couple English versions of the inci list and that has been helpful as I’ve been looking up more info on the various ingredients, which has helped to shed some light on why I pick up certain smells, including this occasional and very faint whiff of mint when I would stick my nose into the packet. πŸ˜‚ I’ll try to post more info this weekend on my findings.

 

No water needed for this particular plant. πŸͺ΄πŸ˜‰ One of the businesses near me is closing up (they’re moving out of state) and they were trying to offload as many things as they could so along with some stationary items I picked up, I got a faux plant. πŸ˜‚ I am wondering what real life plant it’s meant to resemble because it does look interesting (and like something I might want to have, depending on how much care it requires).

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

It is always reassuring to know there are others who share a passion for paper items, @itsfi! I think it is right up there with beauty for me. It’s hard to say no to a cute pen, or eraser, or washi, or stickers…thank goodness for small spaces, helps to keep me on track☺️


Well you picked up a beautiful little specimen, and I can definitely appreciate the low maintenance aspect of it!

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

@itsfi  Zaodam?... well that's one I've never heard of before! πŸ˜ƒ This mask sounds wonderful! 

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

@Shosh85, this entire sheet mask - name, ingredients - intrigued me, and gave me a lot of homework to do last night after work. Not too much out there but from what I can gather, it seems that Zaodam is a line/sub-brand in the Manyo portfolio. I was able to find an English version of the ingredients list and it’s slowly making more sense where the blend of scents I picked up is coming from. I have some more research to do but it’s been a fun little adventure. πŸ˜ƒ

Green Tea Showdown! 🌱

Green Tea duel

 

Material:

Ariul: Tencel

Etude House: Thin cotton

Holika Holika: Thin cotton

Innisfree: Thin cotton

 

Serum:

Ariul: Milky

Etude House: Clear, watery

Holika Holika: Clear, watery, slightly sudsy

Innisfree: Clear, watery

 

Scent:

Ariul: Light green tea

Etude House: Like rubbing alcohol with a hint of green tea (alcohol is 5th in the list of ingredients)

Holika Holika: Sort of a mix of citrus, floral and green tea. It was light and I didn't really smell it while it was on my face.

Innisfree: A mix of green tea and floral. It was light and not too noticeable while the mask was on.

 

Fit:

Ariul: Too wide at the temples and a little too long at the chin

Etude House: A tiny bit too wide at the forehead, a little too long at the chin and the mouth hole was too big.

Holika Holika: Just a little too long at the chin/jaw

Innisfree: Just a tiny bit too long at the jaw and a little too wide. This one also had forehead tabs, which I usually either fold over or chop off, depending on the kind of mood I'm in. πŸ˜†

 

Wear Time:

All were worn for a half hour

 

Tack:

Ariul: None

Etude House: Light tack - stuck around for about 10 minutes

Holika Holika: Very light that only stuck around for a few minutes.

Innisfree: None

 

Results:

Ariul: Soft and smooth, comfortably hydrated skin with a little bit of a glow.

Etude House: Soft and smooth skin that was lightly hydrated and little brighter.

Holika Holika: Soft and smooth, lightly hydrated skin

Innisfree: Soft and smooth, comfortably hydrated skin.

 

Who wins?

These all had nice results, but the Ariul mask was definitely my most favorite. The combo of great results, great scent and milky serum is hard to beat πŸ˜ƒ

 

Repurchases?

I would use all of these again, but the Ariul mask is the only one I'd repurchase

@Shosh85, I πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š green tea sheet masks! The Innisfree is one I always have around. I'll be sure to try these other ones.

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

@nuinui933  It's hard to go wrong with Green Tea!  πŸ΅

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

Love this comparison, @Shosh85! All of these are such nice masks.

Thanks @quspork! They really were all pretty great! 🍡

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

Wonderful presentation!! @Shosh85 

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

Thank you @lmaster! Green Tea is such a great ingredient, for masking and for consumption! 🍡

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

@Shosh85  

This looks like a fun showdown.

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

@missy94612  It was! Haha! I have accumulated so many Green Tea masks, I thought it was time to duel some of them out! 🍡🌱
