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 does sound really nice! 

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

@lmaster, it was! Then again, it is a propolis mask so we were off to a good start before even opening the packet! πŸ˜‰ πŸ’›πŸ―

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

This sounds like a great everyday mask, especially nourishing!! @itsfi 

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

@haleyvvvv, it’s such a comfortable and comforting mask. πŸ’›πŸ―πŸ’›πŸ― Wonderful for this seasonal shift in temperature and weather conditions. I’ve been very happy with several generous samples / gratis that have come with some online Kbeauty purchases. πŸ₯° I don’t think I would have known about this brand otherwise.

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

Truly K beauty online retailers' sample game is fabulous, @itsfi!! 

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

@haleyvvvv, they sure know how to entice repeat business. I’ve learned of some great products through the years just from the samples. 

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

I'd Forgotten about the When masks I have in my collection, so I pulled out one for my Saturday firming mask. 

20210905_002036~2.jpg

Cotton linter Bemliese(?) sheet that purports to help revitalize worn out skin through firming and antioxidant ingredients. 

 

Ingredients 

Standouts: Sodium hylauronate (4th), Arginine (7th) 

Sadness: While an effect dose could be small, the ingredients called out in the front start at ingredient 10. Lemonene and fragrance (although thankfully last)

Fit 

Width was good. 

Eye holes good. 

Nose area not great. 

Chin too long and kept falling down. 

Sheet was thin and lovely texture. 

Spoiler

Essence 

Thin, clear, aqueous. 

A bit extra but not overflowing. Enough to use on my decollotage but not arms.

No real scent. 

Definitely tacky but I mask at night so I don't mind. My neck was still tacky in the morning. 

 

Wear Time 

10-20 but I left on like 25-30. Sheet was only drying around edges at this time. 

 

Effect 

On my decollotage my skin was definitely smoother, softer and plumper. On my face it was a little plumper and softer. However that seemed to go away when I added the rest of my nighttime routine. I don't think a single sheet mask can do a lot for firming though. 

 

Overall Grade 

A solid B/B-. The sheet itself was great. I'm excited to try it with a different formula. The serum would be a great neck serum, not so much the face. 

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

@haleyvvvv When masks are nice, but the chin flap does seem to be a persistent problem! 

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

Agreed, @eshoe!! I just used another one and it was the same issue. But other than that it was pretty good fit!!

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

@haleyvvvv, the Simply When sheet masks are nice. This one does sound like it would make for a fabulous neck serum. I find myself often wishing that brands would bottle the essence / serum from a mask as a standalone product. 

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

@itsfi I'm really impressed with the sheets themselves!! I have 4 more made on the same type so I'm excited to see how those work!! 

 

Yes!! There's quite a few mask essences that I would just buy. 

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

I’ve never seen this version before @haleyvvvv ! 

i agree though, the firming masks are kind of hard to judge because what could happen in one use! It sounds like it was nicely plumping though !

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

@Kim888 I got it as part of one of their sample packs!! I just checked and it's still a mask they make. 

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

@haleyvvvv  When makes some great masks! It's been a while since I tried this one, but I remember liking as well! πŸ˜ƒ

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

I have a few different When masks with later expiration dates in my stash that I'm excited to try, @Shosh85!! 

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

@haleyvvvv the ingredients sound really good!

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

Yeah, I just wish some of them were higher up in the ingredient list, @lmaster.

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

J for a jelly mask...

 

SNP's Fresh Vita Water Jelly. This one is very jelly-like in consistency (no surprise), and there's a ton of serum. It's a cellulose sheet that adheres very well. It's quite hydrating, though it's a bit sticky/messy. As a result, it's one I'd probably avoid if I had to apply makeup afterwards because it didn't fully sink in and left a bit too much film on my skin than I would prefer. It's a good stay at home/weekend mask, though.

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

Film seems to be the issue of the day, as I am catching up, @PrettyPaint. Bummer about this one. You sure have a positive attitude; that can sure come in handy when masking!   

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

@PrettyPaint 

Sticky, messy and too much film definitely sounds like it's better to use this when you don't have anywhere to go.

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

@missy94612  Oh for sure! I don't think it would be possible to apply foundation over this one.
