@Shosh85 

I've seen these at my Target every once in a while and wonder about the line. Good to know you liked this one.

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

@nuinui933  I've tried one other mask from this line, and I liked them both. Wouldn't say they're anything spectacular, but they get the job done πŸ˜‰

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

More samples from last week's theme, with a B for berry (Laneige lip mask) and bees (honey - I'm From mask), a C for clearing clay (Innisfree clay mask), and D is for detox, de-gunk and decongest (Innisfree and I'm From Honey)

Innisfree Pore Clearing Clay Mask
Spoiler
innisfree Pore Clearing Clay Mask 3.38 oz/ 100 mL is a repeated repurchase. I've gone through one full size jar and am a third of the way through my second jar. This gentle but effective mask is like a bear, it hibernates in the winter. It sees more activity from spring through the earliest days of winter. I mainly use on my nose to "de-gunk" my pores, and all over my chin and along my jawline where I can get clogged pores. I noticed in the beginning days of covid-mask wearing that this mask was really easy on my skin, but still got the job done. Something that was and still is very much appreciate. It also gets used from time to time as a spot treatment on smaller, less angry zits. The power house of clay masks is GLAMGLOW Mini SUPERMUDοΏ½ Charcoal Instant Treatment Mask 0.5 oz/ 15 g, but that product can be really drying on my skin so I reserve that for the larger, more painful and angrier blemishes.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
Spoiler
I have a mini, DS or full size of almost every flavor that has been produced of the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C. I deliberately passed on the LE peppermint flavor that came out during the holidays because the line had to be drawn somewhere. lol. I do like this lip mask a lot - it isn't the thickest or most emollient, but it has enough of both to be able to make my lips feel soft and moisturized. In the interest of making my way through some of my existing lip masks, including the ones from this brand, I'm holding off on picking up any more lip masks from the brand but it's a temporary hold and I fairly certain that there will be a purchase of another Laneige lip sleeping mask.
I'm From Honey:
Spoiler
I'm From Honey Mask is made of 38.7% real, organic, pure honey 🍯 - it's the first ingredient listed!! β™₯️ It also contains loads of wonderfully moisturizing oils (macadamia seed oil, sunflower seed oil, argan oil, hazelnut seed oil, jojoba oil) and, wait for it ... snail mucin. 🐌 The scent is a mix of real honey and something that's a cross between herbaceous and earthy. The consistency is on the thicker side, somewhere between goopy and creamy, and it spreads beautifully and smoothly across my skin.

For the entire 30 minutes I had this on, the mask felt soothing and moisturizing - there was no tingling or stinging, though it does feel ever so slightly tacky while it sits on the face.  The mask washes off fairly easily, but following up with a lukewarm washcloth will be helpful in making sure that there's nothing left.  Results are fantastic - every time I use this mask, it 
makes my skin feel very soft, smooth, supple, and nourished. A definite repurchase. πŸ‘πŸΌ 
 

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

I'm from honey,,,, oh this sounds delightful @itsfi 

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

@lmaster, you were one of the lovelies here that I thought of when I tried this mask - nourishing goodness! πŸ’›πŸ―

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

@itsfi  

The Innisfree one - I have to dig up my DS of it. Pretty pic.

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

@nuinui933, thank you! Ooh, if you locate your sample of this mask and have a chance to try it out, I'd be interested to know your thoughts on it. In the summer months, I like to use it on my nose, chin and jawline and then soak some cotton rounds with the Innisfree green tea hydrating skin (or the toner from the line) and place those on my cheeks and forehead. 

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

Oh, glad to hear the I'm From Honey mask works nicely for you, @itsfi. I've got a travel-size of that somewhere I need to dig out and try. 

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

It's a fave @qusporkπŸ’›πŸ― I've been finding that after I use this mask I'm telling myself "this must be what they mean by glass skin." I mean, I can still see the areas where my skin struggles to be where I want it to be, but there's definitely an all over hydrated glow about my face that I would be happy to see more often. πŸ˜‰ When you get to giving this mask a try, I'd love to hear your take on it, and also how you think it compares with the other honey masks you've used.

 

Have you tried other I'm From products? I've only tried a couple and have been pretty happy with them. 

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

I haven't yet, @itsfi. I have the honey mask and the mugwort mask to try out... actually I think I may have tried Mugwort sheet mask now that I think about it. But that's it. They have a lot of interesting looking products though. What have you liked so far?

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

@quspork, in addition to the I'm from Honey mask, I've used and liked the I'm From Rice Toner and the I'm From Mugwort Essence. I have a couple more products of theirs that I plan on trying soon, but waiting for what I think may be better times of the year to reach for them. 

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

I need to try their mugwort essence, @itsfi. I tried the Instree Mugwort Ampoule last year and wasn't overly impressed with it, so this one is next on the "mugwort" list. (Which sounds really weird now that I've typed mugwort several times, LOL. Who has a mugwort list?! πŸ˜‚)

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

lol @quspork! One of the many things to love about you is that you have a mugwort list! πŸ’š I do feel with all the single ingredient products that have entered the Kbeauty marketplace in the last year or so, it actually wouldn't hurt to have an INCI specific list - just to keep them all together ... for future research and testing purposes, of course! πŸ˜œ Ahhhh, that science, gets us everytime. πŸ”¬

 

I had a good chuckle at your comment about typing mugwort several times - my phone and computer now suggests words like "mugwort", "centella asiatica" and "artemesia" or "houttinya cordata" so easily and often now. Hahaha! I didn't realize I used them so often that they appear as recommended words when I'm not even working on anything skincare or mask related. πŸ˜‚

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

@itsfi  You have sold me on the Innisfree mask!

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

@Mellmars1185, it can be difficult for me to find a pore purifying mask that does a solid job decongesting my pores without causing drying out some of the more drier, sensitive parts of my face and my face is blessed to have some of those parts overlap a bit so "yeah me!" but this Innisfree clay mask has been good to my skin. I recall reading that Innisfree closed all (or nearly all) of its free-standing stores in North America last year due to the pandemic πŸ˜ž but most of their products are available online and Sephora carries select products from the brand, including this mask - I *think* it's available on the Sephora Canada site. I have seen larger sample sizes of this mask pop up in the Rewards Bazaar every so often. 

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

@itsfi Yes! They sell it on the Sephora Canada site! I am looking forward to trying it!

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

Yaaaaay @Mellmars1185! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ˜ƒπŸ›

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

@itsfi  The I'm From Honey Mask sounds so wonderful! I feel like a may have almost bought it once, or it also may be sitting an online cart somewhere πŸ˜‚ I will definitely have to remember this one!

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

@Shosh85, it makes my dry skin happy! πŸ˜ I'm also happy to see more mini / travel sizes of the I'm From products available for purchase on the AB online retail site. 

 

Hahaha! I know the feeling - I often find myself thinking I already have a product, but when I go to look for it, nothing. Then, some time later, it'll show up in a couple of shopping carts. πŸ˜

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

The honey mask sounds perfect for this time of year @itsfi !  Good to know about the Innisfree as well.  I found the Glamglow wasn't for me but it would be nice to have some alternates!

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

It's so nourishing to my skin @missjeanieπŸ’›πŸ― Speaking of alternatives to SuperMud, have you tried Origins Clear Improvementβ„’ Charcoal Honey Mask to Purify and Nourish 2.5 oz/ 75 mL? It's a good mask both decongesting pores and soothin and nourishing the skin. I can use that all over as well as a spot treatment for pesky pimples. It's the soothing and hydrating version of Origins Mini Clear Improvementβ„’ Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pore 1 oz/ 30 mL
