Each week features a different theme, as well as a letter of the alphabet for coming up with new masking ideas. 


Please include the brand and name of the mask you are trying out, as well as a photo if possible. Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@CookieGirl1  I was intrigued by it too! It seems like the weirdest and most unique ingredients give the best results! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I'm not sure why since it's salmon egg, but I picture pieces of smoked salmon laid out on your face lol.  I used a mask with salmon roe in it as well yesterday and I would't mind trying out more so I was glad to hear that you like this one! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Haha! Right?! That's exactly how I pictured it too! ..... I'm pretty adventurous, but I don't think I'd go that far! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Glad to hear you had a good experience with the ingredient as well! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™m even more interested in this unique ingredient now that I know it is @Shosh85-approved! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿค” I may also look at certain sushi items differently now. ๐Ÿฑ ๐Ÿ˜† I am pretty sure I picked up a mask with this ingredient earlier in the year because I was a little curious; may have to sneak that one in the queue for this year now. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  When I first got into the masking game, I would've never thought of putting that ingredient on my face..... but here we are ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'd definitely love to try more from the line and just more with that ingredient in general, because so far I'm loving it!


Also, speaking of sushi, this is what their eye patches look like๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahahaha @Shosh85! Those eye patches are hilarious! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I must have them. ๐Ÿ˜ Iโ€™m going to start a new list - masks worth breaking your โ€œmask no buyโ€ - and these are going on that list! Theyโ€™re just too funny, and kinda cute. Iโ€™m also going to give myself an one-time (but just one) pass from now through the end of the year to break my sheet mask no-buy. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I'll definitely be buying more of those eye patches! Not only are they cute, but they work great too!

.... and yay! for more sheet mask buying! I love looking at people's sheet mask hauls and I'll definitely be curious to see what you pick up! Not that I need any more, but I feel a mask haul coming too - now that I'm buying more singles and less packs, it won't add up as quickly ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Alaskan salmon is the best ๐Ÿคค but this would be hard for me to wear @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฑgood pick!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  I love both eating it and wearing it! Haha! Seriously though, they have given me some great results, - but I can totally understand why someone wouldn't want to try it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Last nights, S for Slices. H for honey, hazel, & heavenly

Peach Slices in firm 

Finished off the night with Glow Recipe lip pop in blueberry. Smells delicious!

 

Fit? Ok, usual extra in the chin

 

Smell?also heavenly a tart kinda fruity

 

Consistency? Thin, clear but alot of it. It takes sometime to soak in. I had some tack & even my choice of night moisturizer couldn't cover it all up

 

Ease of use?no issues

 

Would I  purchase/try again? Yes, I would definitely repurchase & have this one on hand, especially in the winter or if I spent a lot of time outside.-wind or sun

 The serum is on the heavier side but its also light. After removing, I did feel like my skin was tigut, sort of "lifted" but not uncomfortable like a mud mask so maybe thats the "firm" aspect of it. It also makes me wonder if this would be a good mask before makeup๐Ÿค” i really enjoyed this one. ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฏ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee Honey is the best!  Glad you loved it enough to grab a few more!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yaaay @sonnydee! Another winner from peach slices! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Happy to hear this one worked out for you. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I used to see peach slices more in Target and/or CVS. With Ulta now carrying PS skincare, I wonder if theyโ€™ll start offering the sheet masks from this line at some point. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That would be nice. @itsfi I almost put in another order after using this one. ๐Ÿ˜ฌbut i talked myself out if it. But i didn't see the piggy mud mask๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿท

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The piggy mud mask is super elusive @sonnydee! I canโ€™t remember if it was LE for Lunar New Year a year or so ago. ๐Ÿค” 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  This sounds great! Haven't tried this one yet, but the line seems pretty solid so far! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

After using this I - almost- submitted another order for more of peach slices masks to add to my stash. Almost...baby steps ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ’ช @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

An "H" mask from last week, for hydration

Merbliss Intense Hydration mask.jpg

Much has been written on the masking thread about Merbliss Wedding Dress Intense Hydration Mask so I will try to keep this post deep-and-brief. ๐Ÿ™‚ As someone with dehydrated skin year-round, the promise of "intense hydration" is always so attractive. However, since my skin also wavers between combination (oily T-zone, dry-ish elsewhere) to dry, there are times when I need to be more mindful of how much hydration certain parts of my face receive as it may be too much. It's a delicate balancing act. ๐Ÿ˜‰ That being said, while a mask like this is definitely a "go to" for me most days, it is a welcome treat in the cooler months.

 

Spoiler
In a NutshellMerbliss Wedding Dress Intense Hydration Mask is a light, soft, extra thin and transparent cellulose fiber mask that while leaning on the larger side overall, wears comfortably as it lovingly wraps the face in a gentle embrace, allowing the hydrating and anti-aging/antioxidant properties of the three different forms of hyaluronic acid, peptides and various botanical extracts contained in the clear, slightly runny, thin, watery and subtly floral-scented essence to absorb more deeply, leaving skin instantly (and as claimed, intensely) hydrated, super soft and smooth, with a dewy, fresh-faced glow. 
 
What I Liked: The second-skin feel and performance of this mask, along with the results were excellent. The ingredients list is amazing, too. A very luxurious mask, indeed! โค๏ธ
 
Area(s) For Improvement: To be nitpicky, added fragrance. It's in the middle of the ingredients list too, or at least, it is on the ingredients list on the back of my mask. I've seen a few online retailers that list the fragrance in this mask as the last ingredient, which is odd given the inci list on the reverse side of the packaging has it a lot higher up. In any event, there's probably not a lot of fragrance volume-wise. Also, I wouldn't mind in the least if this mask (and the aloe one in the collection) were made available as part of a daily sheet mask pack. Or, if the essence / serum were available separately for purchase.
 
Would I Repurchase?: Absolutely. โค๏ธ

 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

What a great mask @itsfi , I've often thought about how nice it would be to buy just the serum from some masks.  While I have no business buying a 7 day pack (at least for a few years) I do understand the draw!

BTW.... gorgeous ring!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah @missjeanie, there are quite a few things I have no business buying . . . or even thinking about buying for that matter, so I hear that! ๐Ÿ˜‚ The Merbliss sheet masks are quite nice and they do have some skincare, but I'll be good and not add anything new to the Merbliss goodies I already have. Well, for now, at least. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I don't think I've ever heard anything negative about a Merbliss mask! So happy to hear this one works great for you! The only Merbliss mask I've tried is the Nurse Healing one and I loved it, so I definitely would like to try more from the brand! What others have you tried?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, the Nurse Healing one is a good one too. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My favorite from the brand so far is another one from the Wedding Dress range - the aloe honey soothing version. Iโ€™m excited to give the other ones from the range a try.
