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  Thank you for the tag - I'm interested in this for sure. It seems like it could be very helpful for migraines. 

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

@PrettyPaint, good point about possibly helping with migraines! 😊 Will be interesting to hear more about it as well as any trends that come along. 

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

This is just intriguing, @itsfi- I really didn't see acupressure coming in sheet mask form, but I guess it makes sense! It'll be interesting to see if other brands also jump into the fray and what new options may pop up over the next couple of years. 

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

Definitely interesting, right @quspork?!! I'm not sure the Mediheal mask has it down entirely and time will tell with the CT one, but there does seem to be some movement in that direction. It does make some sense. I think about times when I've gone to get a facial and those head and face massages are quite lovely, I must say; especially that head and neck massage that comes with it. πŸ˜ I also think of how jade rollers have been incorporated by some into their sheet masking time and myofascial massage in skincare routines. If anything it's made me think again about skincare as self-care.

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

Oh @itsfi thank you! I remember seeing a mask with cryotherapy tech and I was thinking to myself…how can it stay cold? I obviously need to educate myself on this so I can be in the loop!

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

@eshoe, there has been a huge uptick in the number of masks on the market in recent years, both of the wash off and the sheet mask variety, which for skincare mask lovers like the folks here, has its pros and cons. Innovations come not just in ingredients but sheet mask material and all sorts of things like the Mediheal acupoint masks as well as this new CT one that is expected to launch later this month. It seems like we all need to educate ourselves to stay in the loop (though there are some things when it comes to masks that I could see myself being completely happy with just staying in the same lane forever! πŸ˜‰) We'll just keep learning together. 

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

Okay... curiosity peaked @itsfi !  I wonder how this works with different face shapes and sizes?  I'm gonna sit here and repeat that 'I don't need any more masks' a few times.  June/July I have fallen off the wagon big time.  Need to use more up!

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

Hahaha @missjeanie! Oh yes, the things we need to remind ourselves of ... constantly!!!! πŸ˜‚ It reminds me of the days, back when I was a kid (hahaha! I'm now saying things like that! Ohhhh goodness gracious!) when punishment might be writing something on the chalkboard:

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 

 

Let's just say we hit "pause" in June and July. It happens. We just press "play" again. You got this, missjeanie! I know you do! 

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

Oh man… @itsfi  you’re not the only one who had to β€˜lines’ after call Somedays lol!

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

Thanks for the tag @itsfi ! How cool is that! Def going to investigate it. 

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

@Sunnysmom, I've used a sheet mask a year ago, maybe longer, that combined acupressure and I've used masks that have cooling effects (as well as ones with warming effects) so they're not completely novel ideas, but it's interesting to see a brand like CT combine the two different form of therapies. It would be interesting to know what lead to this - I assume that there's a financial/revenue component to it, but wondering more about what science is behind it. If you find anything interesting in your investigation, let us know!

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

Hee Hee I love that! πŸ₯° That’s so cool that you’ve tried some of these before @itsfi . You’ve got such good insight into them. I’ve only used very basic masks plus ones you guys recommend, or that I maybe receive in an Allure box etc. It’s all quite new to me so it’ll be a true learning experience whatever I find out! 

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

Thank you @Sunnysmom! 😊 Basic masks can be some of the best ones - no muss, no fuss masks that get the job done! πŸ‘πŸΌ Yay for starting out on masking! β™₯️ The learning curve can be fun and there’s such a great resource here on BIC. 

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

β€œNo mussin no fussin β€œ just like the funny commercial @itsfi ! πŸ˜‚ Yup and you guys all have great recommendations and advice, thanks for all of it! πŸ€—πŸ˜˜

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

These types of masks intrigue me, @itsfi. Accupressure is stressful for me but something like this on a smaller and controllable scale is much more attractive. A definite need-to-try this year!

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

@eshoe, you should give these a try, this one and the maybe another from the line, with different balls to press. The other masks from this line have raised β€œbuttons” for lack of a better word, but they look flat, or flatter, compared to the acupoints here.

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

Just started a new cart and added it, @itsfi. I will also have a look around for any of the others that might be in the similar camp. Time to get out and explore!

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

Wow @itsfi this mask really intrigues me. I love acupressure (and acupuncture) info and having it implemented into a mask sounds so interesting! Good to hear your thoughts on it and that you probably wouldn’t rebuy though. Boo. 

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

@Sunnysmom, I think the concept of acupressure massage is interesting πŸ‘; I'm just not sure that the ball where the acupoints are supposed to be, on this mask are necessary. I wonder if I could go through the steps of pressing each acupoint 3 times right after applying the mask and right before removing, but with a different sheet mask. Maybe something I'll try with another mask, if I remember. πŸ™‚

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

Yes me too @itsfi . Keep us posted please as you experiment! πŸ’ž

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

@itsfi wow!!! This one sure does look interesting!!
