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!

G is for Goat Milk

Spoiler
The essence in this JMsolution Goat Milk New Zealand + Australia Mask Black has more of the traditional, slightly viscous, liquidy consistency found in most sheet masks than a creamy, milky one I had expected. You can see the milkiness of the essence but it is watered down. This super thin mask holds a lot of essence - I mean, a lot. It definitely felt like it was drenched in the essence, but at the same time, I did not experience any dripping from the mask. The essence itself had a subtle fermented scent to it, maybe a slightly goat milk lotion scent; it did not linger. Adherence was fantastic; in fact, part way through my wear time (and I don't think I was imagining this), I felt the mask clinging even more firmly to my skin, in a good way. Save for some minor snips to the corners of the mouth and eyes, the fit on this one was near perfect, both length- and width-wise. ๐Ÿ˜ Yaay! 
 
Directions called for 10-20 minutes of wear, but I kept with my standard MO of 30 minutes - there was so much essence in this mask I probably could have left it on for at least another 30, maybe even 40 minutes. There's a slight tacky feeling to the skin even when the essence has been fully absorbed. It's not an issue for me as disappears after I follow up with my moisturizer. If I didn't already have a few backups of this mask, I would quickly repurchase as my skin (which is leaning more and more on the dry side as we inch closer and closer to winter) feels hydrated and nourished after using this mask. The hydration lasted overnight as well - I didn't see any dry spots the next morning. ๐Ÿ˜
 
NOTE: I'm not sure why this mask references "black" - I initially assumed it might be a charcoal bamboo sheet mask, but nope, that's not it. Maybe black goats from New Zealand and Australia? I dunno. Any thoughts? ๐Ÿค”
 
My Two Cents: If your skin leans dry or dehydrated or is feeling particularly parched, this'll give it a much needed boost of hydration and moisture! Except perhaps in the deepest part of winter, those with normal, combo or oily skin will likely find the amount of essence in this mask to be too much without some adjustments (i.e., squeezing out some of the essence, not leaving the mask on for the full duration recommended).

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi love the theme of the mask. Sounds great for winter skin for sure.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That description sounds lovely and also leaves me perplexed, @itsfi. The black notation makes me think maybe silt? I did see whitening goat milk masks, but Iโ€™m stumped๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Silt @eshoe? I don't think I saw that in the inci list but I just skimmed it quickly. I'll have to search for other names for that and comb through the list more closely when I have more time.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This entire mask sounds delightful @itsfi !  I always worry with watery serums that they'll be drippy but it's so nice when everything comes together like this. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Agree @missjeanie! ๐Ÿ˜ There are some masks that I wonder how they can keep the essence from dripping everywhere, especially those masks that lean on the thin to ultra thin side. I mean, I love that combination but I'm always curious how they do it! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I agree @itsfi with @Shosh85 the serum in this mask sounds very nice!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The serum is great @lmaster! ๐Ÿ˜ Definitely one that is very well suited for anyone with dry or dehydrated skin or anyone struggling with dryness this time of the year! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Oooh, I love the milky masks and this one definitely sounds great! 
I tried to do a quick little search, but couldn't figure out what "black" is referring to - I did see other masks (non-goat related ๐Ÿ˜‰) that said "black" as well and also others that said, "prime," "clear," "rose," and "rice." ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป If you figure out what it means, let me know! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, the serum in this mask is very nice, consistency and formula-wise. Yeah, the "black" in the name is stumping me. ๐Ÿค” I may pull some of the other JMsolution masks I have and do some more sleuthing over the holiday weekend next week. Will definitely keep you posted if I find out. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  My first thought was that it has something to do with the ingredients, but that wouldn't explain the ones that say, "prime" or "clear." I wonder if it has something to do with how their lines are categorized- black line, prime line, clear line, etc. ๐Ÿค”

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, I think you are into something with it being how their lines are categorized. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Good thinking. ๐Ÿง I went onto the companyโ€™s website the other day to see if I could find out info about lines but didnโ€™t get very far. To be continued...

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

In preparation for next week, I plan to use S for the Superfood Salad masks. I've been gifted a few in unicorn mail (I'll shout out the specific lovely ladies when I review) but was curious if anyone wanted to Buddy Up. My options are

  • Mangosteen
  • Green tea
  • Carrot

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ooooh Iโ€™m in if I can use other brands, I donโ€™t think I have any Superfood masks left, but I might have some with the ingredients @ShortErica @Shosh85 @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes!!! That would be cool @eshoe! Especially seeing what ingredients one vs the other have or don't.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica @lmaster  I just recently did the carrot one, but I'll do the other two! (I actually already had the Green Tea lined up for this week ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yaaaaaaay!! @Shosh85 @ShortErica  I think @faeriegirl might have these as well ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Woohoo @Shosh85๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜€

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica I have them all, I'll be your buddy ๐Ÿ™Œ what order do you want to use them in?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Woohoo buddy @lmaster! How about we do Green Tea tomorrow (Tuesday) and then you pick the next one? ๐Ÿ˜€
