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’–

@lmaster, it was a good mask pack, and peachy scented too! Based on the varieties I've tried from this brand, it seems like my skin prefers the mask packs meant for evening use. 

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

I had planned to use this mask for "D" week, for a "do over" but I picked up the wrong mask. Oops. Instead I'll try to stretch this one into innovative (?) or maybe beauty ideas to try in 2021 because it's a mask I tried in 2021. Hahaha! This will just fall into the category of "not following the challenge" mask.

Spoiler
Mask:Mediheal Golden Chip Acupoint Mask - Illuminating
Material:Charcoal mask
Adherence:Good
Fit: Width was fine; length was off at the forehead (1" too short) and the chin (1/4" too long). 
Essence / Serum:Clear; standard viscosity, not too runny
Scent: Very subtle scent with a slightly herbaceous / plant scent
Claim(s):Brightening, toning, stimulating
Other Noteworthy Qualities:This claims to have some acupressure benefits with acupoints on the side of the mask that is to be applied to the skin. Directions call for pressing these acupoints upon initial application and before removing the mask, the latter of which I forgot to do. Oops. 
Results:I'm not sure about the acupoints, both due to my only use this mask this one time and also I'm not sure what I should have expected from it. From the sheet mask ingredients themselves though, my skin felt hydrated, dark spots and redness looked lighter / faded and my complexion looked brightened. 
Repurchase?:Probably not. I am a huge fan of Mediheal and their catalog of sheet masks. The results of this one were wonderful but I'm not altogether certain that they couldn't be reproduced with another mask, and one at more wallet friendly price point - the acupoints in this masks drives the price up.

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

Apparently, acupressure and masking may be the next trend. Who knew?!! Well, Mediheal did. πŸ˜†

 

Looks like Charlotte Tilbury will be releasing a new mask that combines cryotherapy and facial acupressure. Available mid-August for $40. πŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ @SportyGirly125 posted info from Trendmood on the new mask in the product release and Charlotte Tilbury threads https://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confidential/2021-PRODUCT-RELEASES-THREAD/m-p/5922109/highli...

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

More details. I did further research and here's what I learned:

  • reusable
  • silicone mask
  • claims: reduce / eases puffiness, tones down redness, diminishes dark circles, relieves tension
  • there are pockets situated above the brows, along the cheekbones and jawlines that are filled with metal beads for cooling
  • Before use, you put the mask in the freezer for a minimum 30 minutes 
  • To use, fasten mask with the velcro straps and keep on the mask for 10 minutes during which time, you massage the metal beads on the pressure points - this is said to ease headaches and tension
  • Results: Claims that after 8 weeks, testers reported their skin felt lifted by 253%, more firm by 238% and that fine lines and wrinkles looked less prominent by 52% [NOTE: just reporting on what was claimed; unsure how they arrived at some of these percentages]

I found the above information in an article on Get The Gloss website, titled "Charlotte Tilbury's New Ice Mask Promises Firmer, Lifted Skin in 10 Minutes".

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

@itsfi I will try a reusable mask that lifts my skin 253%πŸ™ƒ β€¦and it has pockets?πŸ€— @ather @lmaster @missjeanie @PrettyPaint @quspork @Shosh85 @Sunnysmom 

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

Yeah @eshoe, I could see not being so sure about this one if it only lifted the skin by 252%. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

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

@itsfi that is serious stat! I would have loved to have been in on the study. Maybe somedayπŸ˜„

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

@eshoe, we should do our own study. I wonder if we'd come up with the same percentages. πŸ€”

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

@itsfi @ather it is on my to-do list!

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

@eshoe  Hmmm I love when my dresses have pockets maybe masks with pockets is the next cool thing πŸ₯Ά

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

I love pockets, @ather, don’t we all? I am appreciating the value of hidden ones more and more, too. They tend to not lose stuff. I was out in nature this week and when I didn’t have on my sweatshirt with pockets, I kept trying to place my hands there. Thankfully I had backup pants’ pockets.

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

@eshoe  Oh no I hate when I do that and I’m wearing leggings. So no pockets to be found!! 

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

Yeah, the key pockets are nice but I need lipgloss pockets @ather β˜ΊοΈ

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

Excellent point @ather @eshoe ! I β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️ pockets in my dresses or skirts. It could be a huge plus with a sheet mask. Even better if there was a feature on the mask that let you snack or drink while masking.

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

Those might be called two-part hydro-gels, @itsfi @ather πŸ˜‚

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

@eshoe @itsfi  I guess we can always dream πŸ’­ 

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

@itsfi  Thank you so much for the added info on this. I agree that the "data" sounds a little sketch, but I'm still interested in trying it out. 

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

@PrettyPaint, definitely let us know how it performs if you pick it up. The cooling sounds like it would be nice when the weather heats up 

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

@itsfi thank you for your extensive research!!

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

@lmaster, no problem. Hope it was helpful.

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

Thank you @itsfi . It sounds like something to try that’s for sure. I love those % CT use! πŸ˜‚ But firming! Lifting! I’m in! Will be looking for feedback if some of you guys get it too.
