Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

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

@Shosh85, I don't often get boba tea drinks, but I always think about it when I see these Annie's Way masks. Love the results you got from this one. 

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

@itsfi  I still have never tried Boba Tea, but these masks make me want to try them!! I'm excited to try the others from this line! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85, if / when you go for boba tea, just be prepared for many options. Many, many options. I love tea but wow, there are a lot of options.

@Shosh85 yaaaaaaay! For Annie's way ๐Ÿ™Œ 

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

@lmaster  Annie's Way definitely makes some great masks!! ๐Ÿ™Œ

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

@Shosh85  Sounds like a decent mask!!! 

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

@ather  It was pretty great! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85  

The packaging is cute on this one. Nice to see that the scent is from the ingredients and not perfume.

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

@missy94612  Definitely love the packaging on this line of masks! I agree, having a good scent come from the ingredients and not added fragrance is always a nice bonus! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Masking Duel: Original vs. Clean versions:

mask duel.jpg

Spoiler

For my mask duel, I tried the original and clean version of the Sephora Watermelon After Sun mask.

First up: the SEPHORA COLLECTION Clean Face Mask Watermelon.


This two-part mask has protective layers on both sides, which seems to be the norm for biocellulose material. The mask itself has a light pink hue, which seems to come from the serum as the protective layers are also tinted pink. It had a clean, fresh scent, and fit my face quite well. I left it on for around 30 minutes, and found no residual tackiness. My skin appeared softened, and I was pretty pleased with the results.


The next night (last Sunday), I re-tried the original SEPHORA COLLECTION After-Sun Mask - Watermelon Watermelon. This also had the same clean, fresh scent, this time in a clear serum. The eye openings seemed slightly smaller, but overall the fit was superior to the clean version. The neck/decollete portion was fun to use, and I found having an extra biocell mini-mask to soothe my skin a huge bonus. I wrapped it around my neck, and much like the results on my face, found the skin there to be smoothed after using. 


I would use both again, although I found the Original version to be my favorite for fit. It is currently OOS, not surprising as it is also on sale. Of all the Sephora branded masks Iโ€™ve used, these are by far my favorites. 

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

@eshoe, the watermelon after-sun masks are great additions to the Sephora Collection masks.

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

They might be the only facial Biocellulose masks Sephora has, @itsfi, at least that I have seen. I would love a full size coffee biocell โ˜•๏ธ 

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

@eshoe, I think thatโ€™s right, at least for the masks in the non-square packaging. Iโ€™ve not tried many of the ones that come in the square packaging though (going to tag @Shosh85 as she may have more insight there), but my recollection is that these after sun masks are the only biocellulose masks.

 

The full face masks in the not-quite-a-full-circle packaging are made of Eucalyptus fiber (Tencel). Having a few more biocellulose masks in the collection would be a good thing, in my opinion. Iโ€™m all on board with a full face coffee biocellulose mask. Where do I go to sign that petition? ๐Ÿ˜† 

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

I am not sure, @itsfi -  but if you find out, please let me know๐Ÿ˜‚

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

@eshoe great idea to pit these two against each other! 

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

Either that, or they would both have expired waiting for a โ€˜special day,โ€™ @lmaster ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

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

@eshoe  

My husband and I did a test of these masks this weekend after reading @itsfi review a few weeks ago. He liked the new one; I like the fit of the older one. Definitely great ones to use after some fun in the sun.

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

How fun, @missy94612! It is great when you can enjoy masking in general with someone in your household. Actually, that is kind of like the dream๐Ÿ’– ๐Ÿฅฐ 

 

If a mask has an unusual scent, or something that I think I am getting, but unsure of, I share it and ask for an opinion. It is so helpful, and another reason why the ability to share scents online would be so cool.

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

@eshoe  Well, it's good to hear the fit was really the only difference! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I haven't liked the formulation changes in the clean versions I've tried. I agree that a watermelon scent would've been nice! Great duel! ๐Ÿ‰

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

@Shosh85 I am with you; of all of the Sephora masks that I have tried, only these two (and the caffeine/coffee eye mask) would be on my repurchase list. Due to the biocellulose material, these get a pass. Add in the bonus sheet-which I used on my neck and loved, for a reasonable price, and itโ€™s an easy win.

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

@eshoe  I wonder why they changed the fit between the original and the clean version.  You reminded me I should have pulled mine out this week after I had been in the sun so much I had heat exhaustion. I bet it would have felt amazing!! Iโ€™ll have to dig it out for our next heat wave!
