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’–

@itsfi  Oh man. I was hoping it had an eye mask. Too bad. Glad the results were awesome!!! 

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

Me too @ather! Maybe one day … 🀞🏼 

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

@itsfi I got excited before I even read your review, because I saw the words "snail" and "cream" πŸ˜‚ This definitely sounds like one I need to try! Glad to hear it was a love for you!  πŸŒ

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

Yes @Shosh85! Get this, it also contains royal jelly! 😍 I forgot to mention that in the original post but it’s right there on the face of the mask. This has your name written all over it. 

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

@itsfi  Oh man, that's triple the goodness! 😍

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

@itsfi very high praise to want to buy other skincare items from the brand

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

@lmaster, the pairing of skincare ingredients I really like and in a cream consistency? That’s just asking to be purchased!! πŸ˜‚ 

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

@itsfi Always love the snail. Side note, I also use a dot journal for like, everything. 

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

Yessssss @Weetart! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸŒβ™₯οΈπŸ‘πŸΌ That’s awesome that you use a dot journal for so many things! 😎 I’ve only been using a dot journal for a few years now - started using them to keep notes for projects; have some lined journals that still need to be used up. I don’t know all the tips and tricks to dot journaling yet but am learning. 😊


This is the first time I’m using a journal for sheet masks. The timing worked out when I started afresh with masks I purchased / received in 2021. I still keep notes for sheet masks on my spreadsheet but having notes, sometimes in shorthand, in this dot journal has been great. 

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

@itsfi Yeah.... it's easy to end up with extra journals in waiting. I got into it because I already have always used graph paper, habit from all my maths and physics.


I'm like, I can make a list in any direction I want, hah! I've come across some neato ideas on pintrest etc.


I like to make a table of contents. I use it for budgeting, random todo lists (like my list of tv shows to binge)... Mainly, I do a daily I update twice a day, morning and evening. I fill it mainly with like, super obvious things like "brush teeth! Morning sheet mask! Shower! Take meds! Pet cats!" then in the middle sneak in "submit updated draft of chapter one!" that way I have an excuse to slap on a bunch of reward stickers for a day well done... even if my draft is still in progress. 


Part of me wonders if it's really an excuse to give myself physical gold stars... I took a shower! Unicorn sticker! I did my weekly laundry?! Kitten stickers all over! I'm fine with that excuse πŸ™‚

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

@Weetart, oooh, a table of contents. I haven’t gotten there yet but one day maybe. A big β€œyes” to physical gold stars. 😊 Here are some digital ones being sent your way! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

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

@itsfi oooh! thank you!

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


Oh wow. I don't think I've tried a snail mask but the creamy serum on this one sounds like it would be wonderful. Another gorgeous photo. Do you usually keep notes on your masks in a notebook?

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

@missy94612, the serum on this mask was great for my skin. πŸ‘πŸΌ Snail mucin 🐌 won’t be for everyone but it works well for me; I love it. I know some folks here have given it a try and loved it as well. 

I have a few different ways of taking notes on masks, a combination of handwritten and digital ones. 

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

Going way back to last month’s multi-step mask challenge, and an E for Electrolyte:



This Holika Holika Chamomile Tea Brew Sheet Mask was the final of four that I tried, the others being Lavender, Green Tea and Hibiscus. This is a straightforward two-step mask. After removing the tea sachet from the upper pouch, it is placed into the larger packet and allowed to β€˜steep’ for a few minutes. I kneaded it a bit, then removed and applied to my my face. Unlike the Lavender and Green Tea, this one did not have much of a scent. It  also did not turn pink, like the Hibiscus did. The serum was watery, and the mask fit fairly well, with a bit of flyaway occurring around the chin area after a few minutes. It felt soothing, although I preferred the Green Tea for its gentle and calming scent. Not a bad mask, I would definitely use it again but won’t be in a hurry to repurchase.



Vitamasques Electrolyte Watermelon 



After falling in love with the Lychee mask, I picked up the Watermelon version to see how it stacked up. I was a little surprised to find the scent leaning more toward fruity-berry rather than watermelon. The fit was decent, much like the lychee, with a little snipping around the eye area to ease the comfort. I left it on around 25 minutes, then removed to finish the rest of my skincare including the last step, Glow Recipe Mini Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask 1 oz/ 30 mL. I also used the Yensa Watermelon Lip Oil, which I find to have a deliciously sweet watermelon scent. It is a very thin oil so I use it as a base and usually layer the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Gummy Bear for staying power. The Vitamasques was good, and I look forward to trying others; this just wasn’t my favorite of the two I have tried so far.

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

@eshoe  Those Holika Holika Tea masks are fun! The Camomile is the only one I haven't tried yet - it sounds nice!

I have the Watermelon Vitamasques mask, but haven't tried it yet - I'm super curious about the scent now! I would've hoped for Watermelon, but fruity/berry isn't so bad either πŸ˜‰

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

You know, @Shosh85 - you  are right. Fruity isn’t bad at all. It’s just like when you take a sip out of a glass expecting water, but instead it is milkπŸ€ͺ🧐 



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


The chamomile mask looks fun.

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

It was, @missy94612. But I am still curious how well a regular tea bag would work if I slipped it into an opened mask packetπŸ€”

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


Do you think you'll try that? Would be interesting to see if you got the same results, wouldn't it?

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

@missy94612I have a pound of hibiscus petals that I ordered in error, and I do intend to steep them in a mask. Time to figure out if that will be a DIY or just placing it into a generously-soaked sheet mask packetπŸ˜‰
