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’–

@Shosh85 Yeah definitely not bad. I have the rose gold version left, I believe. I hope that one is even nicer πŸ™‚

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

@QueenMarceline  Sounds like a decent filler mask! 

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

@PrettyPaint Could see this being nice for travel or on-the-go use. πŸ™‚

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

@QueenMarceline, the end results - soft, hydrated skin - sounds good. This seems like it might come in handy for traveling, or a nice way to try out the mask before purchasing a larger size (if the mask comes in a larger size). Is there enough product in the packet for more than one use?

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

@itsfi Personally, I don't think there is any way that one could get more than a single use out of this satchel. Unfortunately πŸ˜•

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

Interesting @QueenMarceline- I don’t think 20 minutes before total dry down is a great wear time ! But always good to have a filler mask around 

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

@Kim888 Admittedly, it could have been a touch longer. However this is also a traditional face mask opposed to a sheet mask.

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

@QueenMarceline  Wasn’t all terrible!! 

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

@ather Definitely not πŸ™‚

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

I meant to use these masks earlier in the year (for the months when C or M were included in the monthly letters challenge), including last month, but time and work deadlines got the best of me, so here we are, and to make it work with a mask challenge theme this month, we're going to go with ... wait for it ...

G for green πŸ’š
and a throwback ode to @sonnydee's rainbow mask theme from June (eeek!) that I meant to do then.
For the last week-and-a-half, I've been doing some multi-masking a couple of times per week with the two wash off masks - Axis-Y Gel Mask on my cheeks and along my hair line and Axis-Y Wash Off Mask on my T-zone, along my jawline and the area just under my chin.
Axis-Y New Skin Resolution Gel Mask (lighter, olive green tube):  
tl;dr: A lightweight, slightly herbal scented, pale olive-green hued, plant-leaf infused gel that cools and soothes skin on contact and leaves it feeling soft, smooth and lightly hydrated in just 10 minutes.
Mask:Axis-Y New Skin Resolution Gel Mask
Brand Origin:South Korea
Manufacture Site:South Korea
Claim(s)Hydrating, repairing, soothing, brightening and evens tone
Key Ingredient(s)
Niacinamide (brightening) (2%);
cica extract (soothing);
Houttuynia Cordata extract (soothing; anti-inflammatory);
fig extract (hydrating, regenerating);
allantoin (soothing; protecting);
mugwort (soothing; calming);
madecassoside (soothing; healing, antioxidant) 

Consistency / Texture:Lightweight, pale olive green hued gel (though slightly runny in texture, it adheres well to the skin) with tiny bits of plant leaves scattered throughout
ScentFresh and refreshing, with a soft herbal bent
PerformanceThough leaning on the thinner side as far as gels go, this one  applied smoothly and easily, and adhered nicely to my skin without dripping. A little of this product goes a long way and the gel feels cooling and soothing on the skin. The mask felt lightweight on the skin, wore comfortably for the 10 minutes I had it on, and rinsed off easily with a lukewarm water and a washcloth.
Results:Skin looked and felt smooth, more clear, brighter, and lightly hydrated. 
Best Suited For:All skin types in the warmer, summer months; though it seems that it's more suited for those with combination or oily skin. It may not be hydrating enough for those with dry or very dry skin. 
Will I Repurchase?:A little of this goes a long way and while I like this mask, it's not one I feel that I must have, and, as a result, I may not repurchase it immediately after finishing this tube.
Axis-Y Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash Off Pack (darker green tube)
tl;dr: A creamy, herbal and minty scented, mugwort and kaolin-clay based mask that soothes and calms inflamed and irritated skin as it gently exfoliates it with the Adzuki Bean granule sprinkled throughout the mask and soothes.
Mask:Axis-Y Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash Off Pack
Brand Origin:South Korea
Manufacture Site:South Korea
Claim(s)Pore clarifying, exfoliating, soothing
Key Ingredient(s):
Mugwort extract (revitalizing; soothing) (61%); 
Adzuki Bean (exfoliating); 
kelp (revitalizing, nourishing);
artichoke leaf extract (antioxidants; anti-aging);
mung bean extract (moisturizing; brightening; strengthening)
Houttuynia Cordata extract (cell regeneration)
lotus (cell regeneration; helps control sebum production; brightening)

Consistency / Texture:There's a rich creaminess to this kaolin-clay based mask, with Adzuki Bean granules sprinkled all throughout.
ScentHerbaceous, earthy with a slight minty scent; noticeable but not pungent, disappears after rinsing off the mask
PerformanceThe Adzuku Bean granules are gentle on the skin and do a nice job of exfoliating. The mask feels comfortable on the skin for the 15 minutes I had it on, and interestingly, I feel some cooling on the skin as the product begins to dry down (without feeling drying). It washes off easily with lukewarm water and a washcloth.
Results:Clears skin and makes it feel fresh and cleansed without making it feel dry or tight, always a plus from a clay mask. My skin also feels soft and plump, with some redness and darker spots appearing to have been diminished. 
Best Suited For:Any skin type, even dry skin. The Adzuki Bean granules are really gentle so those with sensitive skin might enjoy this mask as well.
Will I Repurchase?:Yes, though it may be a while before I need to as a little product goes a long way.
Dr. Belmeur Real Calming Face Mask - Summer Mugwort:
tl;dr:  Soft, thin, possibly Tencel sheet saturated without dripping in a clean, thin, slightly herbal scented watery essence that after half an hour of wear, diminishes the look of redness on skin, and leaving it looking and feeling soothed and nicely hydrated.
Mask:Dr. Belmeur Real Calming Fae Mask - Summer Mugwort
Brand Origin:South Korea
Manufacture Site:South Korea
Claim(s)Soothing, calming, relieves skin irritation
Material:Soft, thin, possibly Tencel?
Fit:Good, can be tailored to fit face shape and size with some adjustments
Essence:Clear, thin and watery but not so runny as to drip everywhere
Scent:Fresh, with a very slight, fleeting herbal scent that disappears just almost as quickly as it is detected
Viscosity:Low, just enough to keep the essence from dripping
Performance (during 30 minutes of wear):The sheet wears comfortably and is saturated with essence that you can feel it hydrating your skin even as you have it on.
Tack / Stickiness:None
Results:Redness on my cheeks appeared to be lessened / diminished. Skin was nicely hydrated and soothed. 
Best Suited For:All skin types, but aimed at those looking to calm / soothe skin irritations
Will I Repurchase?:Yes. 
I also used the LANEIGE Lip Glowy Balm in the pear flavor/scent (not pictured) but it doesn't seem to be available (or taggable) and the VOLUSPA Mini Havana Mint Mojito Glass Jar Candle 5.5 oz/ 156 g 1-wick candle (can't seem to tag the trio set that this tin was part of).

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

@itsfi The Dr. Belmeur mask sounds really nice, and I love the simplistic packaging!

Ive never heard of the Axis-Y brand, but both of those masks sound lovely! I'm always attracted to masks with Mugwort! πŸ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85, this Dr. Belmeur one is part of a series that is based on the seasons that apparently does not include the spring? πŸ˜‚ Or, I just can't seem to find one, online or in store, for spring. User error is a possibility, always. πŸ€£ I keep pulling up these versions but nothing for the springtime. lol.


Summer Mugwort

Fall Hemp Seeds

Winter Aloe
Yes to mugwort! I found the Axis-Y brand while browsing a couple of Kbeaty online retailers - I'm suuuuuure I was just looking for one sheet mask and somehow a few other products ended up in my cart when I checked out. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ 

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

@itsfi  Ha ha! What do they have against Spring? πŸ˜‚ 

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

I know, right @Shosh85?!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ I keep thinking, did I miss something? Did we lose a season along the way here?

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

@itsfi  Sounds like a Gggreat masking session!! 🀣 I am green with envy! Sorry couldn’t help myself!! I love the green theme I just painted my nails and used a shade of green in them!! The Dr Belmeur mask sounds amazing! They all sound pretty good. I love that voluspa scent! I have it in the reed diffuser I keep it in my room because it’s not overwhelming! What is the plant you have pictured? 

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

Hahahaha @ather! I love this. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ You’re on a roll; you go, girl! Your comments are gggold! πŸ₯‡ 


Oh my goodness, I would looove to know what this plant is - Trader Joe’s calls it β€œfiller” for floral arrangements. I was putting a couple of bouquets together and picked this up. No idea what it is. I even tried searching for similar plants based on the photo in Google but to no avail - I’m not the most tech savvy so that is not a surprise. πŸ˜† Would love to know what it is - it does hold up quite well!! That small sprig has lasted over a month!! 😳 

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

@itsfi  Oh interesting. I’ll have to take a picture of it and see if I can figure it out. I’ve been trying to have a green thumb and I’ve been propagating succulents and cactus. I love having fresh flowers in my house and fresh plants! 

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

That’s so cool @ather! I love having fresh cut flowers in the house - I hadn’t realized how large dahlias can get πŸ‘€. Succulents and cactus sound great though I am sure I would prick myself a lot with the cactus. 🌡 Please keep me posted on how it goes! I tried my hand with an aloe plant and that went well for a couple of years but then … RIP aloe plant. I was told they were strong and could survive anything. Oops. πŸ˜” πŸ˜‚ 

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

@itsfi What an amazing photo! ❀️ All of these look super fun to try.

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

@QueenMarceline, thank you, I’ve tried a few sheet masks from Dr. Belmeur and have really enjoyed them. Axis-Y is a new brand to me, a newer brand to the Kbeauty space actually. I thought the mask pack set was a good way to try out the brand. πŸ‘πŸΌ 

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

@itsfi I think the gel mask catches my attention the most, I've been wanting to try one of those out for a while now,
