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’–

Agreed, @nuinui933, this is an ok mask, but it's not really wow-ing for a green tea option. 

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

@quspork, exactly. Do you have a green tea sheet mask you like? 

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

@nuinui933 I've enjoyed the green tea versions from the Etude House Therapy Air line and the Tosowoong Pure line.

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

@nuinui933 I've had some tingling with some masks from this line as well, which is why I'm not a big fan of these new masks! Sorry this one was just okay!

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

@Shosh85, thanks. It could have been worse. Now I know this one will be a pass.

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

@nuinui933, sorry to hear about the tingling. I've experienced the same from a few of the masks in the clean line. The few where I didn't happen to be the ones that I like. I completely understand how this would not be a 'must have' for you. Have you tried any of the other sheet masks from this collection?

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

@itsfi, I've tried the watermelon one which was okay. I don't know if all the masks in this set are all just going to be okay. Are there ones you've used and like? 

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

@nuinui933, of the masks in the new, clean line that I've tried, I like the strawberry, spirulina and lychee ones best, though with lychee masks, I think Vitamasques makes my favorite lychee mask. I've tried the watermelon after sun mask, both the original and the new clean versions and like them both. 

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

@nuinui933 good to know!

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

@nuinui933  Do you have a favorite green tea mask? I love matcha/green tea. 

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

@PrettyPaint, same. Matcha green tea is so good. I could drink it or eat matcha green tea cookies all day long and be happy. Good question. Oh let's see. The Innisfree ones I like for ones that are easy, no -brainers - they are simple, affordable and the store by my parents' house has them in stock all the time. itsfi sent me an assortment of green tea masks and there was one from SNP that I really like and another one that I don't remember who made it but you seeped a green tea bag into the mask packet with a solution. I thought it was just a marketing ploy but it turned out great.  

 

What's your favorite or favorite green tea masks? I'm always interested in trying out new ones.

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

@nuinui933  The SNP sounds really nice. As much as I love green tea and matcha stuff, I don't feel like I've tried many sheet masks of this variety. I've heard great things about that tea bag one, but I haven't personally tried it! 

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

@nuinui933, thank you for your honest review!! 

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

@FullCoverageBB, you're welcome.  

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

"Kind of" multi-step. This is the same mask that @lmaster posted about πŸ˜„

 

Y.N.M. (You Need Me) Quick Morning and Night Care

-Both sheets were pretty comfortable to wear; they were slightly large, but the cutouts were nicely placed for my face.
-The morning mask had a serum that smelled citrusy. It was refreshing and a bit cooling, but I didn't experience any irritation. There was a bit of tack afterwards, so I had to apply some lotion.
-The night mask smelled like lavender (appropriately themed for nighttime). I sometimes get a bit itchy from lavender and this was no exception. I also experienced the residual tackiness that @lmaster  commented on. It was really verging on sticky, I'd say. I had to apply a whole heap of face cream before going to sleep so my hair didn't get stuck to my face.

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

Oh yikes @PrettyPaint, stickiness and itchiness before trying to fall asleep? No thank you! I think more people are averse to lavender than those who love it. It can be quite overwhelming, which isn’t exactly relaxing. This sounds like an easy pass for me.

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

@eshoe  Yeah, it's never fun to wake up and have your hair stuck to the side of your face. And glad I'm not alone regarding the lavender. πŸ™‚

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

@PrettyPaint Those sound like no-go to me! Sorry you had itchiness!

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

@PrettyPaint  The lavender is pretty fitting for nighttime, though I'm not huge fan of that scent - sorry to hear it caused some itchiness! I know you're not the only who's experienced that reaction to lavender!

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

@Shosh85  Yeah, I feel bad not always loving lavender because it seems like most people tend to like it quite a bit! πŸ™‚

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

@PrettyPaint, the scents (and the names) on both these masks seem fitting for the intended time of use; it's too bad that the lavender scent made your skin itchy; hopefully that was the only effect of the lavender.
