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.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I must have missed the initial scent on the sheet mask @eshoe. We're semi-twinning it with the rose quartz eye masks too. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I’ve noticed that even in multipacks of the same exact mask, there are nuances in size/scent sometimesπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ There was a mask @Shosh85 @recently used that I had a 10-pack of, the Jin Jung Sung 🐌, where I found some fit better than others. Nothing major, but worth noting. 

The rose mask is really pretty. Something like that would be a great way to bring some variety to getting through a 30 (or 32πŸ€”) day mask pack!

Finished off the for innisfree & compared it at the same time to GG Supermud. Going to keep this short since GG is a known love for me & i just reviewed Innisfree. But hey no redness tonight! I purposely avoided that cheek area with Innisfree & nothing. I mostly did some tzone & along the jaw line,. one mask on either side. GG was harder to wash off but I felt cleaner on that side. I think Innisfree leaves a residue, maybe to mattify? .. Yup, I'll stick to my GG for my pesky problem area. @itsfi  here is the back of that GR Avocado

foil. It does mention a pha ..edit: I think this is the original, this one contains honey, the new retinol doesn't. I need to dig around to see if I have a sample of the new one. Nice catch @itsfi πŸ’š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee yep that is the older version, I have the new one but have not tried it yet

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Supermud is one of my most favorite spot treatments! Happy to hear it works for you too! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, this is the original version @sonnydee. That's the one I prefer, but I don't think they make it anymore. Which I just tell myself is probably for the better as I have plenty of sleeping masks already. 😁 I didn't realize the original contained PHA; or maybe I did and just forgot. Interesting about the feel of the Innisfree vs. GG after rinsing off; I'll have to try them both out together at some point. I like both and I can see myself having both in my stash - of course, I can, right?! Hahaha! πŸ€£ GG is definitely one when I need to zap the life out of my zit stat. I like it more as the occasional spot treatment; well, it seems less occasional nowadays. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

So the new version is not that great @itsfi ? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee, I haven’t tried the new one - it has retinol in it and since my skin has a history of not responding well to retinol, I’ve been too scared to try the new version. I know a lot of folks like it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Still working on my Q masks...This time, Q is for a sheet mask that quietly quenches dehydrated or dry skin and is quintessentially "Papa Recipe quality", making it, without question, one to keep in the queue! πŸ˜

Mask Material, Essence & Noteworthy Ingredients 
Papa Recipe Bombee Pepta Ampoule Honey Mask Pack is one of two new sheet masks to the Papa Recipe Bombee Honey family and, from my perspective it is a welcome addition to a collection already full of fantastic masks. The thin, soft material of the mask is Hanji,  which is traditional handmade paper made from a mulberry tree native to Korea. It is thoroughly saturated, though neither dripping or heavy, with a clear, ever-so-slightly-viscous essence bearing a light, sweetened honey scent that reminds me of a less sweet, more toned down version of the fragrance in the Secret Key Honey Banana Mask Pack that has sadly been discontinued.  The essence is chockful of wonderful skincare ingredients, including extracts of honey, propolis and royal jelly, five forms of hyaluronic acid, copper tripeptide, ceramide, panthenol, centella asiatica and licorice root, to name a few. 
 
Adherence & Fit 
Adherence on this mask was near perfection and fit easily followed suit with a few, very minor adjustments - I took off about 1/8" from the chin, jawline and placed the sliver of a strip over my forehead to make it reach to my hairline. Width was just a smidge wide at the temple, too small to even bother over. I made a few small incisions to the corners of the eyes and mouth holes to make the mask lay and wear more comfortably and to ensure that none of the essence went into my eyes or mouth. I also deepened the slits for the sides of the nose so the material would lay better along the sides.
 
Performance & Results 
I left the mask on for my usual half hour but there's so much essence in this mask that I probably could have easily kept it on for an additional 20, maybe even another 30, minutes without issue. For as much essence remains after removing the mask, it does absorb quickly and smoothly into the skin and once it's been fully absorbed, my skin feels soft, bouncy, hydrated and moisturized, so moisturized, in fact, that I didn't feel the need to apply my moisturizer until just before I went to bed. A definite mask for the dry or dehydrated skin types among us! πŸ˜ This is one mask that I would happily use again, and again, and again. β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Love all the q's! Haha! I think you hit your Q quota. πŸ˜‚

Oooh, I want to try the new ones soon! This one sounds wonderful, especially the scent! *sigh* I miss that Secret Key sheet mask - it was one of my most favorites. Just another reason I need to try this one πŸ˜‰ Glad you enjoyed it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, lol! I had planned on using this one during H week and P week and for one reason or another never got around to it. I was determined to make it work and get in whatever Q I could come up with! πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

 

I love that Secret Key mask! So good! I’m bummed it’s been discontinued. Who makes these decisions?!! πŸ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This sounds like a great mask for winter @itsfi ! Love the ingredients list also! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes and yes @keana1! My skin can't help but be happy after using this mask! πŸ˜ Hope you and your family are well! πŸ€—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Great to hear @itsfi ! We are well and healthy! I’m unable to post pictures in the BIC ( again! ) which is a complete bummer ( I’ve tried the website and the app and nothing is working, I’ll try again later today...) I hope that you and your family are also doing well ! πŸ₯°

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi this literally sounds like the perfect mask!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It is @lmaster! I'm very happy that I decided to pick it up, even though I was on a sheet mask no buy at the time! πŸ˜‰πŸ€£

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I went into Q & J / Overnight Mask week with some jelly masks pulled from @missjeanie πŸ˜

 

First up SNP Firming

Whoa this had lots of jelly serum on the mask. It smelled sweet leaning floral to me. The mesh-like tencel material was comfy and the fit was good. I wore it 25 minutes which seemed to be the correct time. I let the jelly absorb and applied some extra jelly from the pack to my neck. There was a very slight stick that went away quickly. Firming claims always make me double take but my face did look a bit firmed (around the checks seemed more defined). And although this wasn't intended for hydration, I forgot to apply moisturizer and don't think my skin missed it. There was tons of extra jelly that I saved and still have to use. I wish fragrance wasn't in the middle but the SNP was better than Kina for me, and I should compare to Yadah while it's fresh. We'll see what this week brings.

Next was SNP Hydrating

Same fit as the other but this one didn't feel like there was as much jelly distributed on the mask. So after I applied, I added jelly from the pack on my face. I wore it a little over 25 (lost track of time) but my skin felt similar. The remaining jelly absorbed nicely, only a light stick under chin which faded quickly. This one had more of a rose floral smell. My face was hydrated and I enjoyed it. Again, tons of extra jelly in this packet too despite me needing to use some on the mask. I saved it in a different jar and will be using both at some point. I'm not wasting it!

Both masks were a thumbs up from me. I'd say A-. I wish fragrance wasn't in the middle of the ingredients. These are the type where I would use again but at my current stash level, won't run out to buy. Thanks again missjeanie! What's everyone's favorite jelly mask? (Did I ask this last week? Mom brain is killing me)

 

I also planned to do a couple overnight masks but that didn't work out. My husband noticed dried blood on my check on day. I have a small mole next to my ear and it was cut somehow. The next couple days I kept finding dry blood but wasn't sure how it was being irritated so I went to the dermatologist and they removed it. So I limited putting products on, especially sleeping and moving it around of my pillow. Eh, I'll get to some overnight masks another time. πŸ€·

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica those look like they fit perfectly! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, just little puckers by the chin but so so good @lmaster! Couldn't ask for much better than that. 😁

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Happy you enjoyed these! It's been awhile, but I remember liking those too!

 

I have mom brain too, so if you did ask it, I don't remember πŸ˜‚ I have two jelly masks that are a tie for first place:  Ultru I'm Sorry For My Skin pH5.5 Brightening Jelly Mask and the Jin Jung Sung Snail Honey Jelly Sheet Mask I just posted reviewed on.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I remember reading your review about the I'm Sorry For My Skin @Shosh85 and unfortunately found a tampered box at my Marshalls store. That would have broken the mask no buy before the Yadah had all the masks been there. And I'll have to read the other one and take notes cause I don't want to forget.
