Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  Wow - I am so shocked about the caviar mask. I'm so glad you liked it, mouthlessness and all. So if you were to repurchase, you wouldn't even cut a mouth hole? 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Me too @PrettyPaint! I was pretty skeptical about it when I decided to use it. It was a mask I picked up to give another try, a do over. I wasnโ€™t expecting to like it, let alone like it enough to want to repurchase it. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ 

 

I think I would keep it mouthless again, but that might also depend on when I use it. I feel like the thickness of the tension mask might feel too much, too heavy if itโ€™s really warm out. That rarely happens where I live but I could see that as not being ideal for this mask, and the lack of a mouth opening could be horrible in that scenario. Maybe my liking it was a fluke? I might pick up another one when it comes time for another sheet mask haul. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I think I can kind of understand why the lack of mouth hole might help with the tension...as long as it didn't feel suffocating. It definitely seems like you wouldn't want this type of mask if you had a cold or a stuffy nose. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@PrettyPaint, thatโ€™s exactly right! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ The thought of a mouthless mask makes me think of it being suffocating. I couldnโ€™t use this when itโ€™s warm or humid out. Or like you said when I have a cold or a stuffy nose or even allergies. But on a cooler day, to unwind and just relax, it surprisingly was nice. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi, these seem like great masks!! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@FullCoverageBB, they were! I was happy with the results from both sheet masks, though very surprised that was the case with the 23 Year Old mask.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

A very brief, concise and directly to the point review;)

Soooo much anticipation for the Clรฉ de Peau Precious Gold Vitality Mask. This is a seriously pricey mask, so I am expecting some big things. After reviewing the first few ingredients (water, glycerin, alcohol, dipropylene glycol) I was skeptical. Very, very skeptical. The product itself is a pearlescent gold:

After application, it appeared on the skin similar to the Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Pure Luxury Lift & Firm 5 oz Pretty! But what the PTR lacks, the CDP has in abundance: fragrance. Notable, and lots of it. It was strong, clean, and it stayed with me the entire masking. After removing, I examined my skin. It looked about the same, somewhat softer but that is the norm post-hydrating mask. Due to the scent, and the price, this one is just not for me. It is definitely fancy and pretty, though, so perhaps perfect for the right person.

The ILIA Lip Wrap Overnight Treatment 0.34 oz/ 10 mL took me by surprise. I tried it almost immediately after opening it, and it felt quite slippery. After allowing it to cool, I have found myself reaching for it often. This might become my new nightstand favorite!

The Dr. Althea Oasis Mask had a protective sheet which was helpful as the mask itself is on the thin side and soaked in a clear serum. The fit was very good, although the eye openings looked too small, they expanded to fit my face quite well.  I managed to maneuver it onto the rest of my skin, and let it sit a good 30 minutes. After removing, I found no remaining tack which was a plus. Although I would not buy this one again, I would use it in a pinch, as it was overall a pleasant mask to use. @Kim888 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe The CDP mask sure is pretty, but the price and scent would be a turn off for me too ๐Ÿ˜

I've been curious about the Lip Wrap! Glad to hear you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

The scent on the CDP was so strong, @Shosh85. It was a little surprising, actually. The Lip Wrap, on the other hand, very enjoyable๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe it sure is pretty!! Thanks for sharing

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

The shimmer and gold are definitely fun to look at, @lmaster. Thankfully I donโ€™t need this one on my life, though-so pricey!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe , the Cle de Peau sounds so fancy. Love the color.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

It was so pretty, @nuinui933, but like other similar gold masks, looked more impressive than it performed. That being said, it was non-irritating.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe, that Ilia lip mask is a new favorite of mine as well. โ™ฅ๏ธ I have it in 3 different sizes now - the full size on my nightstand, a DS at my work desk and the blister sample pack in my purse, though your reference to yours being initially slippery reminds me to put it in a ziploc bag. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

It sounds like you are covered, @itsfi! You know, I think the slippery-ness I felt was due to the product still being warm from traveling to my home. I have been wearing it almost every day since receiving it, and really enjoy it.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe, wash-off face masks are always interesting. But what a pretty, gold color!! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

It is pretty @FullCoverageBB - perfect for photos. Too bad the scent was so heavy!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe  Awww too bad the CdP was so highly fragranced. Good thing for samples, though.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

It is definitely a good reminder to try before you buy, @PrettyPaint. I wouldnโ€™t want to make this pricey of a mistake when it comes to a wash-off!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe thanks for the tag! It was interesting to hear your thoughts on the Oasis one! 

 

Reviewing expensive masks is always so fun - disappointing the Clรฉ de Peau one wasn't worth it, though sometimes at that price point it's for the best haha 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Kim888 I was relieved to not fall in love with the wash-off mask! It was definitely fun to try, though.
