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’–

Exactly @quspork! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ The results were spectacular! โ™ฅ๏ธ It sounds like the moisturizer included in the 3-step pack may be too heavy for warm weather seasons, but this 2-step worked beautifully for me this time of year. 

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

D is for Detoskin 

Spoiler
This celery cleanse mask from Detoskin is a very thin well saturated mask. The fit was average - it was a bit too narrow for my face but otherwise fine. It does not have any strong scent. 

I left it on for 15 minutes and it was still fairly wet. After my skin felt hydrated but there was no brightening. 

My skin did feel feel tacky for about half an hour after. Iโ€™m not having good luck with that lately and I was starting to wonder if I needed a dehumidifier but I used a creame shop one and that wasnโ€™t an issue so it must be the mask. 

overall, I would use this again but itโ€™s nothing spectacular

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

@Kim888, I'm not particularly a fan of celery as a veggie, but this mask sounded promising initially - thin, narrow, well saturated, light scent. It's too bad it didn't end up being a standout and that it stayed tacky for so long; at least you got some hydration out of it.

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

@Kim888 I felt the same way about this one, and their Kale mask as well. A very โ€˜fillerโ€™ filler-mask.

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

@Kim888  Sorry to hear it was nothing special- sounds like a decent filler mask ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Too bad about the tack, @Kim888. At least there was some decent hydration out of it!

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

@Kim888 well, that's too bad, it sounded so promising too

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

@Kim888  That sounds nice that there was plenty of essence, but too bad about the tackiness. I tend to have issues with that as well...though I don't mind too much as long as I don't have to apply makeup right afterwards. 

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

@FullCoverageBB, if you're interesting in trying the strawberry face mask, this deal might make it worthwhile to pick up some masks from the clean line. 

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

D for Dewytree 

Dewytree 100 Mask - CicaDewytree 100 Mask - Cica

Spoiler
The serum for this sheet mask is made of cica, and just cica. ๐Ÿ˜ @Shosh85, I thought I'd be able to share with you what my take on cica's scent after using this mask, but my nose didn't pick up any scent from this 100% centella asiatica extract serum. Hmmm... ๐Ÿค”
 
This mask is drenched with serum and it is runny and drippy coming straight out of the packet; it's also light mocha / tan in color, which having saturated the sheet material, tints it a similar shade. The sheet mask material is said to be made up of a blend of cotton, eucalyptus fiber and algae/seaweed. It's soft, thin-leaning and lightweight. Size-wise, it's overly large for my face shape, which is standard for sheet masks, and, as with most sheet masks, a few incisions are needed to the corners of the openings for the eyes and mouth, to help the fabric lie flat against my skin. The mask bunches up ever so slightly along the sides of my face which is not common but is easily remedied. I love cica for how it calms and soothes my skin, reduces discoloration from acne / PIH or dark spots, and hydrates. This mask did not disappoint and accomplished all those things in the half hour I kept it on my face. So far, I've used the cica and quince mask from this Dewytree 100 line and of the two, I prefer this cica version.  

ETA: Shosh, @WinglessOne picked up a scent when she first reviewed this mask about a year ago:  https://community.sephora.com/t5/Skincare-Aware/Mask-of-the-Week-Challenge/m-p/5547108/highlight/tru...

 

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

@itsfi  I remember @WinglessOne reviewing this one and her description of the scent! It makes me really want to try and grow a Cica plant! This mask certainly sounds great! It's hard to go wrong with 100% Cica! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85, how great would that be if you were to grow a cica plant?!!! I am barely keeping my aloe plant alive; the orchids are so much easier for me to care for. ๐Ÿ˜‚  I've enjoyed the masks I've used so far from this Dewytree 100 line. I can't seem to pick up a scent from any of them though. โ˜น๏ธ But I'll keep trying! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

@itsfi @WinglessOne  I've started to research how and when to grow, and instead of seeds I may be able to get a plant that's already started! I just want to make sure the timing is right ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

@Shosh85, how great would that be if you were able to get one that is already started - brilliant! I'm staying tuned for developments. @WinglessOne 

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

@Shosh85 @itsfi  Each time I use this mask, I'm surprised it doesn't have a stronger scent. I don't know why since none of my other heavily cica skincare products have much of a scent (if any), but I keep expecting a 100% centella asiatica mask to make its presence known to my nose while covering my face. But yeah, I do still detect a green, almost pine, just shy of medicinal scent each time I sniff this mask serum. Years of wine sniffing & tasting have trained my nose well. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

 

I'm glad you enjoyed this one, itsfi! It's still among my favorites. And Shosh, definitely let us know if you grow a cica plant! 

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

@WinglessOne @Shosh85, smelling a cica plant is actually something I now want to do, but that'll have to wait for a while. In the meantime, I might have to follow your lead winglessone and train my nose - if that means I need to make more occasions to sniff and taste wine, well, so be it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

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

I think I have this one!! @itsfi ๐Ÿค” it looks really familiar ๐Ÿ˜†

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

@lmaster, if you have it, it's definitely a good one to try. Soothing, hydrating, and 100% cica!! ๐Ÿ˜

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

@itsfi  I'm pretty confident I have this one somewhere. This makes me want to try and find it and see if I can detect a scent. I don't really know what cica is supposed to smell like, though.

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

@PrettyPaint, if you find it, I would love to know your thoughts on it and if you pick up a scent. 

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

@itsfi I found it this morning - yay! Luckily it was at the top of my bin.
