To Post:

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. Don't forget to include a grade (thanks to @ShortErica for the idea) to help others along the way.


Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Looks like you @Shosh85, @lmaster and whoever else can be Guinea pigs for me and others. Let us know how they are! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  I keep telling myself I'm not buying anymore Sephora masks because I just feel like they should have a better ingredients list for the price........ but it's so hard to resist new masks! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm definitely going to give them a go @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Nice! I'm so curious about them! I told myself wasn't going to buy any more Sephora masks, but this with the 20% off is a pretty good deal......... I guess we'll see if I cave ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, I was super curious when I saw the tagged product since I hadnโ€™t seen the set before. ๐Ÿ˜ Then I read the part about the star ingredient being low on the list alcohol high. ๐Ÿ˜” Well, that means my very low, low-buy is still in play! ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi ohhhhhh alcohol??? @Shosh85 ugghhhh that might be a pass then

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  The ingredients don't show alcohol, just high fragrance.... @itsfi, did you mean to write alcohol?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Lol @Shosh85 @itsfi phewwww!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ack! Sorry @Shosh85 @lmaster! I thought alcohol was high up on the list of ingredients. Oops. ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Unfortunately it seems the key ingredient being low and fragrance being high, is something all these Sephora masks have in common. I just did a quick glance through all the Sephora masks, (both the original and clean versions) and ALL of them had fragrance higher than their key ingredient, with the exception of the Aloe one - which has Aloe Juice higher than fragrance but the Aloe extract is lower.
Also, just because I thought it was interesting, in the ingredients list of the Coconut clean mask, fragrance is higher than coconut, but Watermelon is higher than them both! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค” (there's no watermelon in the original version ๐Ÿ˜†)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  I remember I received one of the customer opinion surveys that they sent out about 1 week before they hit the shelves (if that -- maybe less).  Mainly it asked do you like the packaging?  Would you buy it based on the packaging?  Do you believe it is clean?  What if it only has 5 ingredients would you buy it?  Of course they only show the front of the packaging and I thought em, no... there's gonna be fragrance in there.  To me the survey was not to see if people were interested in such a product but if they would buy it based on the ridiculous product packaging and front of package claims (personally, I don't like their packaging - old or new as it just seems so busy.  I understand others may love.  It's just not my style).  But my take away was there was less focus on the ingredient / quality than there was on the marketing and packaging.  Which is disappointing because Sephora does seem to be trying to develop a cleaner (note I said cleaner, not clean) skin care line at a reasonable price point.   Sad the key ingredient is so low down on the list.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sigh. ๐Ÿ˜” @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Thanks! I hadn't noticed this set. I kind of feel like buying it too - probably because it's a better deal than purchasing separately.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Yeah, I think that's why it's more tempting - they're cheaper than what Sephora masks typically go for. That fragrance being so high is why I hesitate ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

N for night new to me

Fresh peony brightening night treatment mask, it's expensive & massive but not on Sephora's site. 

Laneige grapefruit lip mask

Fit?cream mask

 

Smell? I'm beginning to think alot of fresh products have that cucumber smell to them.-except for the rose line of course. It's tolerable but I can see myself getting sick of it. 

 

Consistency?creamy, thin, white but it will blend in nicely to your skin. 

 

Ease of use?spreads easily, but turns greasy feeling & makes me look greasy. Maybe that's their brightening they promise.๐Ÿคท it's not sticky, which is good but I scratched my face & came up with gunk under my nails. ๐Ÿ˜(This is hour 3)you don't have to wash off remainder because the site says every thing will be soaked in. 

 

Would I  purchase/try again? Depends on how I wake up tomorrow๐Ÿ˜ if I would try this again. But the smell would most likely keep me from buying this. And the tub is huge. Drier skin would appreciate this more. 

Lip mask:

I like the different flavors they have, I found I personally have to use a good amount for it to soften my lips. This smells good so it may be a fs purchase. Nothing like my OG bite but that's been discontinued. I like to also use these during the day.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee, I have not tried that Fresh mask ... yet. ๐Ÿ˜† I think the scent may keep me from that (and because Iโ€™d want to try a sample first). Freshโ€™s signature cucumber scent isnโ€™t bad, but itโ€™s something I need to be in the mood for.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

When you are hungry for a salad @itsfi ๐Ÿ˜ I totally get that - use a sample first. I try to use a foil over a ds anyday!๐Ÿค—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

๐Ÿ˜‚ @sonnydee, that made me laugh. I will be sure to smell my salad during lunch today. ๐Ÿฅ— ๐Ÿ˜ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It's so disappointing when masks only come in size XL, @sonnydee. It would be so cool if Sephora had a 'mask bar' where you could build your own DS kit of like three, five, or seven masks. So many of the Fresh masks intrigue me, but the size and cost are prohibitive. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Or fresh could just do a holiday mini collection set of just their masks.  Im sure it would sell & you would get a good feel for their masks. But the cucumber smell would get to me๐Ÿคข @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm not much for cucumber scent either @sonnydee
