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 

Sorry about the no go ingredient. My daughter wants the koala. LOL. My husband is on board with wearing the mask for her. Do you remember where you got this one?

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

@missy94612, your daughter has good taste - the plushie is quite soft. 🐨  I picked up the sheet mask at a local boutique where they had a few from this line available for individual purchase - this koala and a panda one. I’ve seen10 packs as well as a variety pack from time to time at TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Amazon, though the latter seems to be harder to come by. 

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

@itsfi super cute!! Sorry you had to wash the serum off!!

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

@lmaster, her koala plushie is super cute, and really soft too! πŸ¨  This isn't one that worked for me, but I can see the mask being a nice hydrating one for someone else. 

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

@itsfi That face mask and plushie are both so cute. I'm a sucker for animal printed masks, tbh. Sorry that the ingredients don't mesh well with your skin, what a bummer. 

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

@QueenMarceline, sheet masks with animal illustrations can be entertaining. Yeah, I should have known better than to pick up this mask with brown kelp in the ingredients: another reminder to be more mindful of the INCI list. 

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

@itsfi Awe, that plushy is super cute! Did you borrow this one from your niece? πŸ˜‰

 I don't have any notes on it, but I'm pretty sure I remember liking this one. Too bad you had to wash it off! if you don't mind me asking, what ingredient is it that you're trying to avoid?

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

@Shosh85, ha, yes, this photo shoot was made possible because of my niece’s collection of plushies 🐨 and some hard fought negotiations. That kid! πŸ˜† 

 

Oh, whoops. Sorry about that. My skin doesn’t respond well to brown kelp. I can handle seaweed, algae, and other forms of kelp but that particular ingredient, usually listed as laminaria japonica extract, is a no-go for me. πŸ˜” I somehow just missed it in the INCI list when I bought it, or perhaps I didn’t look at the ingredients list carefully enough. 😬 Note to self. πŸ“ I was distracted by the coconut water being the third ingredient - I see that on a sheet mask and think β€œcould you be a dupe for the discontinued TCFS Coconut Ceramide mask that I love(d)?!” (Please read  that as dramatically as possible because there’s much drama when I say it in my head?! 🀣)

 

Here’s a snapshot of the full INCI list from the skinskoolbeauty site.

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

@itsfi  I feel like I've heard a lot of people who've said they are allergic or sensitive to seaweed/kelp/algae - it's interesting that it's specifically brown kelp for you. Glad you realized it as soon as you did!
Alcohol being so high in the list isn't too great either!

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

@Shosh85, I learned the hard way about my skin’s sensitivity to brown kelp. Ugh. The Whamisa sea kelp mask, while fancy, is a big no for me. But in so doing, lesson learned. πŸ˜† I didn’t realize it was just brown kelp until I started going over my notes on my sheet mask usage. There were seaweed / algae / non- brown kelp masks I used (spirulina for example) and my skin was fine, but that laminaria japonica extract comes up, no thank you; pass, please. πŸ˜² 

 

I learned too that some brands don’t specifically call out the brown kelp and lump all similar marine based extracts into one description (greeeaaat) so I try to be extra careful. 

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

The print is sure cute 🐨 @itsfi 

I think print masks for me are more fun than functional, but I love ❀️ 😍  cute stuff lol 

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

@CynthieLu, the cute stuff just pulls us in, doesn’t it?!! 😍 I can go into a store, determined to just pick up what I went in for and then … β€œoooh, cute!” Or, β€œwhat is THIS?!!” and then focus is a little harder to maintain. πŸ˜‚ The print masks are often mostly about the prints but there have been a couple that are repeated repurchase for me, namely The Creme Shop Cica-Mend mask with the cute tiger. 🐯 My skin really likes that mask.

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

Yeees @itsfi I feels this hard. Cutesy stuff gets me often πŸ˜… especially animal themed cuteness. The stores know my weaknesses 🦊 πŸ¦„ 🐱 🀩 I'm just over here like take my $$ 

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

Hahaha @CynthieLu. If the animated animal sheet masks are a weakness, you’ll need to hold onto your wallet with the holidays approaching. πŸ˜‚ πŸ’Έ In past years, I’ve seen quite a few of the animal print masks from The Creme Shop in Marshalls / TJ Maxx, both from their permanent line as well as special holiday editions. Other brands will put out cutesy animal print masks for the holidays too.

Ooh I've never heard of this line before, it sounds like a really good one! I'm glad you enjoyed it @Shosh85 it sounded lovely 🍯 πŸ’›

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

@CynthieLu  This is a pretty solid line! I haven't really been disappointed by any of them so far! πŸ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85  This sounds like a perfect mask! I love it when a mask makes my skin look brighter and feel softer. I'm glad you enjoyed it. 

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

@PrettyPaint  Yup, it's definitely worthy of a repurchase! Makes a great morning mask!

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

@Shosh85  What a combo! The results sound amazing!!

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