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 - PART II

@Shosh85, Citrus dish soap sounds like a good descriptor. It wasn’t something that I liked. 

The Julep 3-step is one of my favorites from the brand, too. I was bummed when I heard Julep might close but then I saw these in Target and phew ...

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  I totally forgot about Julep closing! ..... gotta love Target! 👌

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Interesting about the scent you picked up from the icing mask @itsfi I recall loving the scents, maybe I have not tried this particular mask 🤔

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, I wasn’t expecting it. I thought it would be a lot more citrusy or fruity. I’ll have to check to see if it was an older mask. 🤔 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hopefully some minor mask surgery will help the other Apieu masks fit a little better than this one did, @itsfi.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I think it will @quspork. Most A'Pieu sheet masks just need a little snip here and there, and I think I expected the same from this one. I was a little alarmed when it came right up to the corner of my inner eye. A good reminder that not all sheet masks, even from the same brand, have the same shape and design. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Everything sounds exceptional, @itsfi! I have the A’Pieu in my drawer, very excited to try after your review☺️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Do you have all of the A'Pieu masks in this line @eshoe?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes, I believe so @itsfi; if there are four, then I have them. I still need to try the watermelon, pineapple and hanrabang. I just bought them last month after trying and loving the green (melon) one that @Shosh85 shared with me:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe, I’ll be interested to see if your hanrabang version hasn’t a similar scent to what I picked up. I’ve heard good things about the watermelon and pineapple ones.

2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Tonight's 3 step mask was a gift from the ever so generous @eshoe Step1: the cleanser Fit? it's a creamy, frothy wash. it took off my mascara the 1st time. It has a shimmer to it, reminds me of the AP cleanser that I love Smell?it does have a fragrance to it. I like it, actually reminds me something from my childhood that I cant quite remember what...🤔 Consistency?cream, rinsed easy Ease of use?no issues Would I  purchase/try again?I wish they sold this individually! Step2: the mask Fit?typical fit, extra to wrap around the chin Smell?it did have a fragrance, pleasant like the cleanser but different Consistency?it is a black mask, drenched in a thinner clear serum Ease of use? I did have to fight with the eyes, at the beginning- the area was a tight fit. Would I  purchase/try again?this left my face felling soft & moisturized. I don't feel the need to add the serum yet- im waiting until morning for everything to soak in even more. it's not tacky but I think it might turn greasy if i added the serum. Which surprised me, being a charcoal mask. Will update tomorrow with step 3.

And today was the 1st day of school so my morning quickly...

And today was the 1st day of school so my morning quickly turned into my afternoon before i remembered I still need to do step 3. I woke up to soft skin that absorbed most of the hydration from the mask but I do think adding the serum would be overdoing it. The serum is thinner than baby oil & actually does kinda smell like it. it's more faint, not so powdery & in your face though. I think this would be a great charcoal mask for the drier types. For a oily girl like myself, i could use thisagain dragging out the steps or if my face was extra thirsty- like a day in the FL sun. But had i known this wasn't a true charcoal mask, I wouldn't of used it yet. So can't really rate but did enjoy the scent! 🤗 @lmaster @Shosh85 @eshoe @itsfi

Re: And today was the 1st day of school so my morning quickly...

@sonnydee are you kids doing remote learning or in person? Just curious how different every school is. My boys are doing Monday and Tuesday in person, Wednesday and Thursday remote. While my daughter she's 13 her school is 5 days a week in person. 

Re: And today was the 1st day of school so my morning quickly...

We had a choice for all schools: in person, hybrid (what your boys are doing) & online. I only left the choice up to teeni & she choose in person. They missed it, especially my little ones.  @lmaster 

Re: And today was the 1st day of school so my morning quickly...

That's exactly right @sonnydee they miss the structure and friends! 

Re: And today was the 1st day of school so my morning quickly...

Yes, & all the "extra" google meets they had. 😕 i had to print out a weekly schedule to keep up with them all. @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ohh interesting! @sonnydee would love to know the final results

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  I haven't tried much from this brand and don't ever feel drawn to multi-step masks, but this one sounds like it's worth a try! Have you had a chance to try the 3rd step yet?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Soft, moisturized skin sounds good to me, @sonnydee

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ok guess I need to get one of those for myself, @sonnydee 👍🏼😊

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I think your skin would really enjoy this @eshoe 🤗 thank you for sharing it with me!
