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

@haleyvvvv now the coffee lip scrub is divine!!! Guess we need to make sure it says coffee in the description and not caffeine ๐Ÿคฆ

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

@lmaster I saw the FB and right away thought of your newer purchases.  Too bad they don't actually smell like coffee!  That's frankly the best part to me of the lip scrub I use lol.  I am curious about the hair mask now that you say you've like it though! 

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

@missjeanie the coffee scrub is amazing!!! The hair mask I wish smelled like coffee but it's not a deal breaker

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

I just took a peek and it looks like their direct site delivers for free to Canada @lmaster ... I may need to see about getting some more of the coffee flavoured products at some point. mmmmmmmm coffeeeeeeeee

E for eggplant ๐Ÿ†

Wash Off Mask:

Spoiler
Papa Recipe Eggplant Clearing Mud Cream Mask is an unscented, purple hued kaolin clay mask containing walnut shell powder for a gentle physical exfoliation and several soothing and hydrating ingredients to keep skin from drying out. Itโ€™s one Iโ€™ve used before, last fall. I liked it then and I like it now. ๐Ÿ’œ

What I Like:So many things to like about this mask:
  • Unscented
  • Gentle exfoliation
  • Doesnโ€™t harden or dry down
  • Cleanses without stripping skin of natural oils; no irritation, no tightness
  • Baby soft, smooth, clear, brightened skin
  • Easy to apply and wash off
  • Fun purple color
 
Area(s) for Improvement:

None, as far as I'm concerned.
Overall Thoughts:I purchased a set of 10 of these capsules and have quite a few more left. These capsules sure come in handy for travel but that's won't likely be in the cards for me for quite some time (and that's fine). After I've gone through these capsules, I'll likely pick up a full-size tube of this one. I like the gentle but effective exfoliation it provides and can see it being put to good use as an aid for clearing out my nose and the oilier, clogged areas around my nose.
 

Sheet Mask:

Spoiler
The cotton fiber material of the XOY Eggplant Mask is soft and thin to make it feel beautifully comfortable against the skin but is also sturdy enough to hold in the clear, slightly viscous and unscented essence it is saturated in without any of it dripping.
 
What I Like:
  • soft, thin-ish sheet wears comfortably against the skin
  • results were great - my skin looked and felt refreshed and hydrated
  • ingredients list is pretty good
Area(s) for Improvement:Not readily accessible
Overall ThoughtsThis is a good mask, but I'm not so enamored with it to consider it a "must have" mask. It's certainly a sheet mask I would happily use again and one I would repurchase as well, but it's not one I'd necessarily rush out to repurchase.

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

I'm intrigued by the Papa Recipe eggplant wash off mask, @itsfi!! It sounds amazing. I've been using some of the Papa Recipe eggplant skincare and it's been hit and miss, so I'm not sure how similar it would be.

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

@haleyvvvv, the PR eggplant mask is super gentle. I can see it being too gentle for some folks. Which of the products in the eggplant line did you enjoy most? Iโ€™ve tried their honey propolis ampoule and thought it was good. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

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

@itsfi I really likes the cleanser, lol, but the cream, emulsion and clearing skin were a bit too drying (and I didn't even layer them, I used them one at a time) and they didn't really clear my skin. I used the non cream items on my partner for spot treating and they were okay. I have Tea Tree products, to try for clearing, but I am also a weary to try. The honey products look lovely though. 

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

@haleyvvvv, so sorry to hear they were so drying. Ugh! ๐Ÿ˜– Thatโ€™s always a challenge with clearing products. Lately, my main go toโ€™s for clearing products have been the Peach & Lily Reboot Resurfacing Mask and the Origins Clear Improvementโ„ข Charcoal Honey Mask to Purify and Nourish 2.5 oz/ 75 mL. I use the Origins one on areas where I tend to be more dry; the honey helps. The Peach & Lily is good for decongesting clogged pores; it can be drying so I tend to concentrate it on the oilier parts of my face.

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

It is!! That's why I really like the Farmacy BHA toner for maintenance pore decongesting and the Sunday Riley UFO oil for spot treatment, both work well on my dry skin.

I'll have to try out the Honey and Charcoal mask, @itsfi !! I like the regular charcoal mask and my partner uses it, but I like the Boscia one better. Maybe I'll pick him up the Honey Charcoal one and try it that way, lol.

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

@haleyvvvv, I rotate Sunday Riley Saturn mask for spot treatment. Hadnโ€™t thought to use the oil that way; making a note to give it a try. That entire range has been good for breakouts.

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

@itsfi  Hmm, I'm pretty sure I haven't used an eggplant mask before ๐Ÿค”  I have seen that Papa Recipe one and wondered about it, so it's good to know it's one you enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ†

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

@Shosh85, itโ€™s a super gentle exfoliator. Sometimes I like something stronger but my skin has been very sensitive and finicky this winter so this one works nicely. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Gotta baby the skin. ๐Ÿ˜† Iโ€™ve been impressed with Papa Recipe - the sheet masks are wonderful and what Iโ€™ve tried of the other skincare products have been good. 

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

@itsfi great choice for E week, happy to see it was a good sheet for you

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

Thank you @lmaster! ๐Ÿค— Iโ€™m finding that my skin is more receptive these days to a more frequent use of an exfoliating wash off + hydrating sheet mask combo. Gotta give my skin what it seems to want. 

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

@itsfi i donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve ever seen an eggplant sheet mask before! Thanks for sharing 

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

@Kim888, the only eggplant sheet masks Iโ€™ve seen are this one from XOY, one from Quret which Iโ€™ve tried and thought was just okay and from Skinfood.

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

E is for Eve Lom

  • โ€ƒa generous gift from the sweet as pie @eshoe 
  • Out of all the "luxury" masks I've tried, this one is my favorite
  • I'd say it's a medium, flexible sheet drenched in a milky white, thickish serum
  • Extra in the sleeve
  • Scent was not noticeable to me, I would go with light powder fresh scent
  • Wear time was 25 minutes
  • Results, my skin loved this milky serum, it soaked in nicely. Fabulously moisturized, nicely hydrated and my skin had a nice glow.
  • I did notice once all the serum absorbed, the tackiness did last about 10 minutes. 
  • This would make an excellent morning prep mask

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

@lmaster  This one sounds wonderful, especially the milky serum! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Perfect for you!! @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜Š

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

@lmaster, the scent on Eve Lom products can be too much for me; this one sounds like it has a much lighter scent.
