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

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi, do you know if they make a green tea version? I'd love to try a mask that is 100% green tea!!!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@nuinui933, I wish!!! πŸ˜ Right now, this line has 4 different varieties - birch, cica, hibiscus and quince. I would be onboard if they made one with 100% green tea. πŸ΅

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi This one seems very interesting. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@tjffc, it was really good! πŸ‘πŸΌ Years ago when my skin was super dehydrated and dry, birch water did wonders for hydrating and moisturizing it to a healthier state, so I jump on the chance to try the ingredient in a sheet mask (and other products) when I see it. 😊 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi I did love this one!! Funny story, my dad has a birch tree in his yard, when I was little, I used to call it a bubblegum tree bc if you peel the "bark" it is a pink color underneath πŸ˜†

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@lmaster, I love that! I had no idea (and I wouldn't have if you didn't share such a great story) that a birch bubblegum tree is pink in color under its bark. πŸ’— That's very cool. I am making note of that!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi β˜ΊοΈ yeah I was a curious kid! 🀦

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@lmaster, I love that!! β™₯️

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

I love the packaging on this one, @itsfi. Birch trees are so pretty. A match up at some point would be fun to see!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@eshoe, agree; I love the packaging on this one; something very calming about it in my eyes. πŸ˜ Have you tried these Dewytree 100 masks?

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Sorry, @itsfi, I missed this tag!

 

I have tried the Cica and I have the Hibiscus that I just received in my Facetory sub. I wasn’t overly impressed with the fit, but yay for one-ingredient masks! Plus, it’s helpful to have anything cica on hand for caring for skincare blunders;)

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

I liked this one too, @itsfi. It would definitely be interesting to see how continuous use could help amplify any positive effects. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@quspork, I'm thinking I'd like to put the cica and birch ones to an extended wear test. I still have the hibiscus mask from this line to use though, so we'll see how I feel about the hibiscus variety first. Have you used the hibiscus one?

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

I haven't tried the hibiscus yet, @itsfi but did like the others, so I can't imagine that the experience with that one would be too different. Hopefully, it's just as nice!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  This line of masks certainly sounds great! It would be fun to do a duel of the 4 varieties (that's all I've seen anyway), but the Birch and Cica definitely seem the most promising! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Shosh85, a showdown of the 4 would be a fantastic idea! πŸ’‘ I used the cica and birch ones close enough in time but find them equally great. Wish I had saved the quince one to do now. I’ll get to the hibiscus one soon and I may try your duel idea after my next sheet mask haul. If you get to trying β€˜em all out around the same time, I’d love to know your thoughts. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  inspired me to find this mask in my stash and use it...

 

Dewytree's 100% Cica Mask. Yep - 100% Centella Asiatica Extract. 

 

There was a good deal of extra, watery serum. The sheet was a little large (particularly in the chin area), but the fit was decent overall. The sheet adhered closely to my skin (with just a bit of hanging at the chin area). My skin seemed to absorb the majority of the serum - There was just a tiny bit of tackiness after removal, but nothing bothersome. It was soothing and refreshing, and my skin felt nicely hydrated. I am definitely a Cica fan, so it wasn't too surprising that I enjoyed this one. 

As for the scent...
It was pretty faint and not detectable while wearing it, but I definitely smelled a tiny bit of an herbal/plant scent when I smelled it. The scent was extremely light, though, so I probably wouldn't have noticed it without intentionally sniffing it.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint love cica!!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@lmaster  Totally agree. β€οΈ Cica

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint the idea of single ingredient masks is pretty cool, and something I could get behind! I think that I have one more of these, I want to pay extra-special attention to the scent:)

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@eshoe  Can't wait to hear what you detect!
