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

@Kim888, I have tried the CT dry mask, when it was first released. The side of the Eco Your Skin mask that faces out feels like the outside of the CT dry mask. The side of the Eco Your Skin mask that is meant to be applied against the skin, however, resembles a hybrid of a biocellulose mask and a traditional lotion/cream serum saturated sheet mask - like a biocellulose in that the serum is infused in the mask and not really noticeable until worn - there’s no serum oozing or dripping from the sheet. Like a traditional sheet mask in that when you apply it against the skin you can feel the serum / essence (as opposed with biocellulose masks where I don’t always feel the serum until after I removed the mask and feel some remaining atop my face). 

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

Oh wow that sounds super interesting @itsfi!! Thanks for sharing !! 

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

@itsfi a warm cozy blanket is definitely wintery. The white jade one looks cool with part of the syringe glowing like that. Is it lit up on the packaging in real life?

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

@nuinui933, this time of the year, I have blankets everywhere around the house. lol. I think that package on that Banobagi mask turned out that way because of the lighting in the room or maybe the flash from my camera, because it doesn't light up or glow like that in real life. I'll have to see if I have another one of these masks or if I have one of the other 3 varieties - and will try taking another photo. 

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

@itsfi  These all sound like some decent masks! The plump, bouncy, and dewyness of the Leaders mask sounds pretty nice! πŸ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85, I was pleasantly surprised by the Leaders mask. I shouldn’t have been though - that brand has really been good to my skin over the years.

 

When I first started masking, Leaders probably made up a good 70-80% of the sheet masks in my stash; been thinking a lot recently about how to incorporate more of them back into my mask collection and still have a good mix of new masks or masks from new brands, without having a stash that is out of control - been there, done that and don’t want to do it again if I can help it. πŸ˜‰ Ohhh, the decisions to be made. 🀣  I hadn’t tried this one until now; definitely one worth using again. 

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

@itsfi  Yeah, when I was new to masking, Leaders was one of my favorite mask brands, but after years of masking, that has changed. I still like them, they're just not a "love" anymore. I think that's due to the fragrance in most of the ones I've tried. My favorite Leaders mask so far is probably the "Juicy Pina Colada Bright Mask" - it's smells sooo good and has great results.

So, I'm sure you knew this was coming, πŸ˜‰ but what has been your favorite Leaders mask? 

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

I need to use that Leaders pina colada mask again @Shosh85! I remember it smelling really good! 

 

"So, I'm sure you knew this was coming, πŸ˜‰ but what has been your favorite ..." 

πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

 

Yes!! And I looooove that for as many years as we've been masking and posting here that we still ask that question. Hahaha! I have two favorites, in the order I discovered them: (1) Leaders Aquablend Oil Pocket Mask (Nourishing) - in the brown packet though the moisturizing/hydrating version in the blue packet is also nice and (2) Leaders 17V Derma Pibu Wang Mask - the one with the cat on it. This one isn't on the Leaders site anymore and on iHerb it says it's been discontinued. Huh? I wonder if they are redesigning the package though - my wishful thinking coming into play. Ugh, another mask being discontinued. πŸ˜£ I did find a set of 5 on Soko Glam site and while I wasn't planning on buying until I finished up with the sheet masks I recently hauled, I'm making an exception here if it's being discontinued! So to your question, I guess I don't have a favorite Leaders mask anymore. Sigh. 

 

This has (sadly) been discontinued for at least a year now...This has (sadly) been discontinued for at least a year now...

What?!!! It looks like this one is discontinued too!!! WHAT?!!!What?!!! It looks like this one is discontinued too!!! WHAT?!!!

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

@itsfi  Oh, I loved that White Truffle Oil one too! I had no idea it was discontinued, but I guess I'm not too surprised! πŸ˜•

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

@Shosh85, it was one of the first, if not the first, oil serum sheet masks I used. The good news is that more brands have oil serum sheet masks in their collections now. 

 

Yes, of course, these would be discontinued. Maybe I'll just start applying a reserve psychology approach to reviewing masks since there are some masks that are passes for me that continue to stick around while so many of the ones I consider favorites have gone on to be discontinued. πŸ˜†

W is for Watermelon 

 

Spoiler
Creme shop watermelon and kombucha sheet mask. 

Like other creme shop masks, the fit was slightly large but the mask itself was soft and well saturated. This had a sweet watermelon scent. 

i liked this better than the other fusion one with matcha I tried. This one was non irritating and very hydrating. 

overall, nothing super exciting but a good staple mask, I would use again.

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

This one sounds great @Kim888 always nice to have a good staple when you need it

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

@Kim888  I haven't tried this one yet, but it sounds like a typical Creme Shop mask! A good scent is always a bonus! πŸ‰

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

@Kim888, I had a similar take on this mask. It’s a nice one; not one I would consider a must have but I would be happy to use it again.

W for watermelon 

W - watermelon.jpg

 

Spoiler

The clear, slightly viscous essence saturating the super thin Tencel sheet of the Too Cool For School Natural Vita Mask (Hydration) has a delicious watermelon candy scent - not a watermelon jolly rancher scent that many of us have become familiar with when it comes to watermelon sheet masks, but more like the watermelon scent from watermelon gummies. The sheet feels soft against the skin, the thinness hugging every curve like second skin, with the lightly cooling sensation from the essence creating a sense of refreshing calm. (FYI: The actual watermelon πŸ‰ was actual refreshing! πŸ˜‰) A few adjustments to the length at the chin and the openings for the eyes and mouth are all that's needed for a tailored fit and the claims of hydration are felt even before removing the mask. The packaging may have you believe that this is an ideal mask for the warmer months and I don't doubt that, but having used it this week, I'd say that it could work beautifully year round and will most certainly be repurchased.

To the product development team at Too Cool For School, well done! πŸ‘ This is a great addition to the TCFS family and its sheet mask collection. Now, if you can spare a few minutes, might we talk about bringing back the Coconut Ceramide Mask?

Yes maskers, I will take every opportunity to try to bring that lovely mask back. πŸ˜‚ @Shosh85  

 

 

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

Ohhhh and it's packaging is so tempting!! @itsfi added to list 🀣

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

@lmaster, yes! A good mask all around! The packaging definitely draws you in. πŸ‰ It did me! πŸ˜‚ 

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

@itsfi I tried this one as well and enjoyed it much more than the Kale version. Sounds similarly like real life πŸ˜„

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

Oh, was the kale mask not good or was it just that the watermelon version is better @eshoe? Haha! I like kale-watermelon-and-berry smoothies but if given a choice of just one, I'm with you, go for the watermelon! πŸ˜‚ πŸ’“πŸ‰

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

Hmmmm yes watermelon smoothies, please @itsfi πŸ˜‹

 

It seemed to me that everything about the strawberry mask was superior; even the fit. That being said, the kale mask wasn’t bad. It  was just more of a filler mask for me. I actually did not touch the watermelon one for awhile because my expectations toward it were dampened. Luckily, it was a case of unintentionally saving the best for last!

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

Oh man..... I looked at this and thought "I don't remember this TCFS mask... Almost let myself wander over to a purchasing site until I remembered that I still had a few of the coconut ceramide left... in my suitcase of masks that I've barely touched all year... Dang @itsfi your photos always tempt me!!
