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

@elleb810 Etude House makes some great masks, and I agree, this is a good one for dry skin! Glad to hear you enjoyed it! πŸ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85  

This one gets used once a week at a minimum. It's one of the few sheet masks that my skin finds moisturizing enough. Have you used others from this brand? 

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

Yes, this is a great one for dry skin, @elleb810! Glad to hear it worked out well for you. 

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

@quspork  

My skin just lives for this mask.

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

@elleb810, this line of Etude House masks is one of my favorites! I love how thin the material is and the results are fantastic. I've not yet tried this Argan variety. Is the serum thick? Argan oil can be too heavy for me so I haven't been too quick to reach for this one when I go for a mask from this collection, but I like the sound of it being really good for dry skin. 

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

@itsfi  

I didn't find it too heavy. I've given a couple to friends and family. My sister liked it and she can have a hard time with argan oil, like you. She uses the Josie Maran light version of the argan oil because the original formula is too much for her most of the time.

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

This mask is so good, @elleb810! Etude House makes some excellent sheet masks, they are always on my repeat listπŸ˜‰ Have you tried any of their other masks?

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

@eshoe   

The olive oil one is a good one too. There's a bunch of the serum even though the material is thin. Which of their masks have you used?

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

@elleb810 I have tried quite a few from this line, but haven’t ventured out much after that. My favorites are the collagen, honey, and the olive, like you. There are probably more, but those are the first that one to mind. Any one of these works for me, though, and they are often my go-to when I don’t want to take masking notes, and just enjoy the masking itself πŸ™‚

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

@eshoe  

Thank you. Your favorites sound good. I jotted down the ones you like. 

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

@elleb810 Amazon has a little set of 13 that is great. Those are my favorites, but I enjoy every single one from the set and often reach for them when I am too tired to mask, but know that my skin needs it.

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

A for apple

A - Apple.jpg

 

tl;dr: The clear, viscous, jelly-like essence of the Cos.W My Real Skin Facial Mask - Apple leaves an initial tacky feeling after 30 minutes of wearing this thin, soft cotton cupra sheet mask. That tack dissipates once the serum is completely absorbed, leaving skin feeling wonderfully moisturized and looking beautifully glowy. The only disappointment is that the serum didn't smell of apples. This gwp mask will be on the "to buy" list for the next sheet mask haul. As will the Seraphine Botanicals Apple + Baume Glow Lip Mask🍎😍

 

Sheet Mask:

Spoiler
Mask:Cos.W My Real Skin Facial Mask Apple
Material:Thin, soft, cotton cupra
Adherence:Good; wears comfortably for the entire 30 minutes.
Fit: Large overall in terms of width and length, though from a width perspective, not enough to require cutting; length was about 1-1/2" too long at the chin. Adjustments needed to the inner corner of the eye openings.

Essence / Serum:Clear, viscous, similar to a jelly-like essence but is a little thinner in consistency.
Scent: Sadly, no apple scent. The scent my nose picked up made me think of grated ginger and bergamot. Lemon peel oil is included in the INCI list so that might explain the bergamot scent I picked up; not sure about the grated ginger though.
Claim(s):Brightening
Results:There's a tacky feel that dissipates after the skin has completely absorbed the serum. Skin feels wonderfully moisturized and looks beautifully glowy
Repurchase?:Absolutely! I plan to look into the other "flavors" as well.  

Lip Care:

Spoiler
The Seraphine Botanicals Apple + Baume Glow Lip Mask is a pinky-red tinted, lightly apple-scented, thick (but not too thick) balm that turns into a moisturizing oil upon contact with the warmth of the lips. It too is repurchase-worthy. I'll also be looking into the other lip masks the brand offers.

 

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

I received that lip mask in a boxycharm a few months ago and LOVE it!! @itsfi 

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

@lmaster, what a great product to receive in a sub box. I've been enjoying it a lot. Boxycharm seems to be a popular sub box on BIC and one that has some nice products! 

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

@itsfi I unsubbed like 4 months ago though, mainly because I was getting too much of products I was not thrilled with, very good deal though

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

@lmaster, I completely understand that. I’ve been free of all sub boxes for over a year now, except for a gift subscription I received earlier in the year. It’s nice to be able to manage the products I have, both in terms of number and type. 

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

@itsfi, this sounds like a nice one. I love it when they give you a mask as a gwp. Your photos are always so nice. 

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

@nuinui933, I agree. A sheet mask as a gwp is also a nice treat as far as I'm concerned. I especially like it as here when it's a mask I've not used before (or in this case, even heard of) and it turns out to be a good one.

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

The CosW mask sounds great even without that nice apple scent, @itsfi. It looks like they have a nice range of other focus ingredients, so definitely keep us updated if/when you pick up some of the others!

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

@quspork, will do! There's quite a lot of different masks to choose from in this line. I saw that amazon has a variety pack, which I'm usually always down for, but since I'm limiting the number of sheet masks I have on hand, I may need to be a little more selective about which variety packs I pick up. 

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

@itsfi ohh this mask sounds interesting! Sad it didn't have the apple sent but super hydrating sounds great!
