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’–

I love the packaging on this one, @itsfi. Birch trees are so pretty. A match up at some point would be fun to see!

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

@eshoe, agree; I love the packaging on this one; something very calming about it in my eyes. πŸ˜ Have you tried these Dewytree 100 masks?

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

Sorry, @itsfi, I missed this tag!

 

I have tried the Cica and I have the Hibiscus that I just received in my Facetory sub. I wasn’t overly impressed with the fit, but yay for one-ingredient masks! Plus, it’s helpful to have anything cica on hand for caring for skincare blunders;)

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

I liked this one too, @itsfi. It would definitely be interesting to see how continuous use could help amplify any positive effects. 

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

@quspork, I'm thinking I'd like to put the cica and birch ones to an extended wear test. I still have the hibiscus mask from this line to use though, so we'll see how I feel about the hibiscus variety first. Have you used the hibiscus one?

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

I haven't tried the hibiscus yet, @itsfi but did like the others, so I can't imagine that the experience with that one would be too different. Hopefully, it's just as nice!

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

@itsfi  This line of masks certainly sounds great! It would be fun to do a duel of the 4 varieties (that's all I've seen anyway), but the Birch and Cica definitely seem the most promising! πŸ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85, a showdown of the 4 would be a fantastic idea! πŸ’‘ I used the cica and birch ones close enough in time but find them equally great. Wish I had saved the quince one to do now. I’ll get to the hibiscus one soon and I may try your duel idea after my next sheet mask haul. If you get to trying β€˜em all out around the same time, I’d love to know your thoughts. 

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

@itsfi  inspired me to find this mask in my stash and use it...

 

Dewytree's 100% Cica Mask. Yep - 100% Centella Asiatica Extract. 

 

There was a good deal of extra, watery serum. The sheet was a little large (particularly in the chin area), but the fit was decent overall. The sheet adhered closely to my skin (with just a bit of hanging at the chin area). My skin seemed to absorb the majority of the serum - There was just a tiny bit of tackiness after removal, but nothing bothersome. It was soothing and refreshing, and my skin felt nicely hydrated. I am definitely a Cica fan, so it wasn't too surprising that I enjoyed this one. 

As for the scent...
It was pretty faint and not detectable while wearing it, but I definitely smelled a tiny bit of an herbal/plant scent when I smelled it. The scent was extremely light, though, so I probably wouldn't have noticed it without intentionally sniffing it.

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

@PrettyPaint love cica!!

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

@lmaster  Totally agree. β€οΈ Cica

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

@PrettyPaint the idea of single ingredient masks is pretty cool, and something I could get behind! I think that I have one more of these, I want to pay extra-special attention to the scent:)

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

@eshoe  Can't wait to hear what you detect! 

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

Glad to hear this one worked well for you too, @PrettyPaint!

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

Yay, thanks so much @quspork 

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

@PrettyPaint  I love Cica too, and this definitely sounds like a mask I need to try! I haven't heard anything negative about it yet! I'm happy you enjoyed it! πŸ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85  Thanks so much! I'm curious now how many other masks there are with just one ingredient. 

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

@PrettyPaint, yay!!! πŸ˜ƒ Happy that this was a good mask for you. I’m a smidge jealous that you picked up an herbal / plant scent, but that also makes me want to pick up another of this mask soon to see if I can detect that scent.  

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

@itsfi Now that your stash is so reasonable in size, you most definitely should πŸ™‚ 

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

@PrettyPaint, I probably will at the end of next month. The stash should be thoroughly  whittled down of new-to-me masks by that point. 😊 

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

D for detox and dependable!

 

First up, is a lovely mask courtesy of our beloved @eshoe who generously included this one in a group of masks she sent a while back. The MD's Pick I Don't Know Yesterday Purifying Mask.

This one was hiding behind a couple of other masks in my stash that I need to use up this summer because of impending expiration dates and I'm so glad I pulled it out this week! It's a black, well-fitting sheet that contoured and adhered well. And had tons of jelly serum both on the mask and leftover in the packet. There was no noticeable scent and it didn't leave my skin with any tack after removal. It was nicely hydrating and (most importantly haha) actually brought a little pimple I've had this week to a head after removal so that's beneficial! Thank you @eshoe for sending this delightful (look- another D!!) mask my way!

 

And in the "good, old dependable" category- 

 

The Tosowoong Pure Snail Mask

 

PXL_20210723_193053576.MP.jpg 

 

I'm sure I've reviewed this one in one of the mask threads before but it's been a while so here is it again! The Tosowoong Pure masks continue to be a favorite. The fit of this line of masks is wider than a lot of others which works really well for my face. The cotton is a slightly thicker sheet, but I've never had issues with adherence. There was a bit of a perfume-fragrant scent that was noticeable upon application of this one, but nothing overwhelming. My skin was left soothed and hydrated and this line will continue to be one that I purchase over and over.
