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’–

Love this concept with the rainbow, @eshoe. It's too bad about your reaction to the Danielle mask.

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

Only one questionable mask out of seven works for me, @quspork. I am just glad it didn’t cause hives or welts!

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

Ohhh lemon pop @eshoe glad the retinol mask worked well!! Looks really cool too

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

Any mask that reminds me of candy is a good one, @lmaster πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

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

@eshoe  

Woah; that's a lot of sheet masks. That forehead mask sounds like something I need to track down.

 

The print in your background is beautiful. 

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

The forehead mask was shaped just right, @missy94612. I think it’s great for some targeted masking when one is not up to committing to the entire face.

 

Thank you, I think the gold accents on it are such a nice touch!

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

@eshoe, the ROYGBIV approach to the rainbow mask challenge always makes for a good week of masking. The scent on that Bling Pop mask sounds fantastic! πŸ‹The Julep 3-step mask is one of the few 3-step mask packs that I really enjoy - great for travel. It's too bad it had expired. 

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

@itsfi I am pretty sure I have seen it in one of your posts first! 

I bought the Bling Pop on Facetory at the end of the year last year. I am still very saddened that their site (business model?) changed so much that they no longer offer individual sheet masks other than their own brand. I really loved the quick shipping as well. 

 

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

@eshoe, I was so focused on getting through my masks that I didn't set aside masks for all the colors of the rainbow; and that indigo shade is a hard one to come by, too! lol. 

 

I was on the Facetory site last month and it seemed like many of their product offerings were from their own brand, which is a business model that some companies have been moving towards. It makes sense, on one hand, but can be disappointing for consumers. I've found myself in that camp in the past with other companies - happy for the brand as they grow but it's a bummer to lose a valued source for variety. I noticed that they have some, but very few, sheet masks from outside their brand that you can purchase individually - perhaps surplus from their subscription boxes? 

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

@itsfi I was just re-watching Glow Recipe on Shark Tank, and had forgotten how they originally started. Same model! I do love what they have done, and suppose that  profit margins are much higher when the focus is on an in-house brand. Yes-good for them, a bit sad for us!

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

@eshoe  Great job masking daily! I love that you did all those colors!

Its too bad the Julep one had issues. Have you used it before? From what I remember I really liked it when I tried it, but mine wasn't expired. 

If the Innisfree mask reminded you of the Missha Ice mask, it's definitely one to look into, especially because I think the Ice masks may be discontinued... of course. 😒

 

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

Ooooh any beloved mask will be discontinued @Shosh85- although the last time I checked, the When Last Choice was still available. It’s one of my first repurchases next month. 

I have tried and loved the Julep, I think this was just old. I think the material must begin to break down and become fragile, as I am not sure if I tore it or if it has already broken down in the packet. 

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

For the duel, I tried to use up some Facetory masks (each from their "Everyday" line). There was the Acai (rejuvenating), Almond (Skin strengthening), and Jasmine (moisturizing). The fit seemed to be cut the same for all three masks and was pretty decent (just a bit large). The acai was cooling, and my skin felt slightly tacky yet clean. It was fairly generic smelling, though slightly citrusy. The jasmine had a slight lavender smell, and I experienced some tingling while wearing it. There was also some residual tackiness with this one. I experienced the least tingling with the almond, but it had similar tackiness to the others. 

 

Honestly, it was pretty difficult to distinguish any major differences. They all had a fairly similar, generic sheet mask smell. I would probably best classify them as filler masks. Of the three, I think I probably enjoyed the almond most because it was the least irritating to my skin (the others contained some citrus and lavender ingredients that sometimes cause some minor itchiness).

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

Love this comparison, @PrettyPaint. And good to know about the slight tingling. I've some similar issues with citrus in masks. 

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

@quspork  Yep - I'm finding that my skin is sensitive to some citrus and sea ingredients in masks! 

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

I was actually more drawn to the almond just by the picks @PrettyPaint β˜ΊοΈ happy that's your favorite!

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

Mmmm I love almonds @lmaster 

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

@PrettyPaint  Great idea for a duel!! πŸ™Œ Sorry to hear they caused some irritation! I'm glad to hear the tingling didn't turn into anything serious. πŸ˜… I haven't tried any masks from this, mostly because I've heard they weren't anything too impressive. Great job getting through them! 

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

@Shosh85  Yeah, I probably wouldn't intentionally seek them out! πŸ™‚

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

Great duel, @PrettyPaint. I am honestly so disappointed that Facetory is selling mostly branded masks at this point. I feel your experiences here and can concur that many are filler masks. There are a couple of standouts (the Detox one was great!), but I miss the variety. Thank you for doing the hard work for all of us!

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

@eshoe  Yeah, I have noticed the trend towards mostly branded masks - I have managed to accumulate quite a few through the subscription.
