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’–

Ha! I would never consider myself a gardener @missjeanie, but, thank you! That is really kind of you to say. I will keep that in my back pocket for when my friend, who is really good at caring for plants, etc. makes a comment that "oh, orchids are easy." Ummm, no siiiir, missjeanie says I'm a "gardener extraordinare", thank you very much๐Ÿ˜‰ The only way my thumb is green is if I stuck it in something green, like Dr. Jart+ Mini Cicapairโ„ข Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30 0.5 oz/ 15 mL๐Ÿ˜‚ So far, for me, caring for orchids means giving them access to good, but not direct, sunlight, and a consistent weekly routine of ice cubes, sometimes more cubes or more frequently when the temperatures rise. 

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

Lol! You crack me up @itsfi ! I used to try so hard with the orchids but they just consistently  died until I felt like I needed to move on for both of our sakes! 

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

@itsfi, wow, your chart is awesome. The waffle material sounds interesting.

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

@nuinui933, thank you! I like charts. ๐Ÿ˜† Easy to read; lol. The waffle material on the Facetory Chamomile sheet mask was wonderful. 

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

@itsfi thank you for sharing this comparison! It was really informative! I've only tried one version but I really liked it so I may look into others (though it sees like the one I tried was the best one haha) 

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

@Kim888, you're welcome; glad it was informative. I've kept my sheet mask notes on a spreadsheet in the past and it makes it easy to read/follow. You picked the right one to try. The material on that chamomile mask is a nice one; the best of the bunch, in my mind.

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

@itsfi  I haven't tried this line of masks, so it's good to have comparisons! The Chamomile and Camellia definitely sound like winners! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85, it's been a while since I've used a mask from Facetory; I liked the variety in sheet mask material in this dream garden collection, but there were definitely standouts among the different varietals. I'd like to see a cream serum version within this line. ๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜

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

What a great comparison, @itsfi. I would have expected the Biocellulose to be the winner here, but that doesnโ€™t seem to be the case. I have been contemplating these, and you have cleared the air of any questions I may have had. Also, your pansies are beautiful๐Ÿ’—

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

@eshoe, I thought the biocellulose mask would come in higher than it did. Maybe I'm getting more finicky about biocellulose masks; I've noticed that the notes I take on them tend to be the shortest set of notes compared to the other type of mask material. Hmmm...๐Ÿค” Thank you; the pansies have been low maintenance, which I am sure is the reason they are doing well. ๐Ÿ’ฎ

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

Your flowers are gorg, @itsfi. I'm a little jealous of your gardening skills! 

 

This is a great comparison of this line. I don't think I've ever come across elderflower as a central mask focus before. They all sound really interesting! 

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

Aww, thank you @quspork! ๐Ÿ˜Š I think pansies do well with the mild temps in SF. I can't say the same for the other flowers I'm working on; I can't seem to coax some of them to fully bloom. But I shall keep trying! 

 

This is the first I've seen elderflower as the main ingredient, too; not just in a sheet mask, but in skincare in general. This one is such a pretty mask, too. I forgot to include a pic in the original post. The thicker microfiber really lent itself to a cozy, comfy wear.

@itsfi  

The camellia one sounds nice. Too bad about the stinging. Do you know what caused it?

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

@elleb810, I haven't been able to pinpoint what it was that caused the stinging. I have another one of the camellia masks so I will give it another try ๐Ÿ™‚; maybe when I know my skin is in top shape and is not sensitive.

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

@itsfi  

Wow. The chart is perfect. Makes it easy to find what you're looking for. Thanks for doing this.

Love your photos too. They're always so nice.

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

@missy94612, thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€ The chart makes it easy for me to see similarities and differences more quickly, especially if I don't use the masks I'm comparing close in time to one another.

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

@itsfi love seeing your comparisons!! I know I've used the elderberry and possibly the chamomile

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

Thank you @lmaster! ๐Ÿค— The waffle material on that chamomile mask is first rate! ๐Ÿ’–

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

Well I didnโ€™t use this while I was on the go, but I used it while cooking so Iโ€™m going to count it haha

This is the Tata Face Point mask. So I didnโ€™t realize until I opened it this was one of those masks with a bunch of small pieces you put on (like the slice ones). Im generally not a fan of these types of masks because I want my whole face to get the benefits of the mask, not just a few parts. Luckily, there was quite a lot of extra serum in there so I sort of rubbed that on first and then used the stickers. The mask was scentless and the pieces did adhere quite well to my skin while I was moving around. After, my skin felt hydrated and non tacky. Overall, I much preferred this to the slice ones, but I still like traditional masks better

@Kim888 , super cute packaging.

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

@Kim888  I'm not a big fan of the slice masks either, but this one sounds better than most! Glad it turned out nice! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
