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!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Glad to hear this gave you good results @WinglessOne. I like the serum in this mask pack; though my preference for the thinner material when it comes to sheet masks rings true for this one.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  This one sounds nice - glad it could help calm things down! Where would one go to smell a Cica plant? I'm super curious as well ๐Ÿค”

I've never heard of EURO-NApre, but now I feel like I need to do more research on it! Hopefully it was a mistake ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne Iโ€™m just jealous that you have a working Mac. Mine had its WiFi lose all sense when the keyboard got a tiny bit of water on it. Iโ€™m tethered and annoyed but at least I can type ๐Ÿ™„

 

โ€So I poured this maskโ€™s serum into the dry sheet pouch an hour ahead of time.โ€ That is a beautiful hack, and I want that scent in my next mask. I am curious about the silver you mentioned, also as you mentioned-will have to look that one up. I think itโ€™s fair to say you have exceeded your great masks per month quota๐Ÿ˜Š

 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Aw, sorry about your Mac. ๐Ÿ˜ž I resisted buying a new one (a laptop) for years because Apple stopped making them easily customizable a few years ago. I'm still getting used to this one's touch strip above the keyboardโ€”I somehow keep accidentally touching itโ€”and the enormous touchpad. ๐Ÿ˜‚

 

@Shosh85 I'm trying to remember where I first heard about the EURO-NApre issue... Lab Muffin, maybe? I haven't heard anything more about it, but I also haven't kept track of it, what with all the other worse and confirmed badness happening in the world this year. Anyway, this is the kind of thing I'd love to hear more chemists weigh in on. Yet another reason I wish I knew Korean: it'd be much faster to search for info at Korean sites, news, and journals, without relying on a Korean-to-English translator. 

 

Apparently you can buy potted centella asiatica from etsy. I'm very tempted to buy one! I wonder if any local nurseries carry it. There might also be 100% cica powder available from a few places, especially those that sell "traditional" medicines... hmm... the lengths I'll go to just to know for certain what something smells like... ๐Ÿคฃ I went through this exercise back when I was first training my nose to identify various notes in wines: I read some wine pros' tasting notes on specific wines, and anything they identified that I didn't already know the smell or taste of, I tracked down just to smell and taste myself. Decades later, I still do it whenever there's a taste/fragrance note I can't identify, like cica. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Heading over to Etsy now, @WinglessOne, Iโ€™m too curious. Eta: bought the seeds, letโ€™s see if I can get them to sprout.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  I  โค๏ธ your X!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

These look really cool @WinglessOne sounds wonderful as well, price point idk maybe a good mask to splurge on once in awhile?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne I think @Shosh85 mentioned an $8 sheet mask was a bit beyond her liking and I'm in the same boat. I'll be very curious about your final decision at the end of the year. I'm glad it does give great results.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

is for The Creme Shop Cold brew mask

OMG I loved the light coffee scent on this one. The mask itself was humongous. It felt nice and cooling on my face this morning and my face felt more firm afterwards. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@emaisgr8  Love the scent on this one! I'd definitely use it a lot more too, if it weren't for that dang alcohol! Glad you liked too! ๐Ÿ˜ƒโ˜•๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@emaisgr8 love the scent on this one

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It really smells good @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yay for the scent and results @emaisgr8! I wish The Creme Shop would step it up in the fit department. They are so accessible and it's a bummer that they don't fit a little more nicely.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I agree @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Last night I used Bombee Fruitables White Squeeze Balancing mask.

I had a nice serum. I had a hard time unfolding it. It felt wonderful on. It is supposed to balance damaged areas and smooth skin texture. I can really use that right now with all the irritation my face coverings are causing.

I woke up with nice calm skin.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@emaisgr8 Love these masks! Happy to hear this one worked wonderfully for you! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I like these so much @emaisgr8 I hope they come back around Marshalls

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ooo these are nice and I appreciate the slim packaging. @emaisgr8 have you tried any of the others from this line. The white sounds great!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I have @ShortErica ! I've like all of the ones I've tried.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

C is for coconut ๐Ÿฅฅ

Peripera Juice Time Coconut Sheet Mask ๐Ÿฅฅ

This is a medium thickness cotton sheet mask that was saturated with a white milky serum and had a very light coconut scent. The fit was good - just a teeny bit too wide at the temples and a little long at the chin. The adherence was great and it was super comfortable to wear. I kept it on for a half hour. There was some very light tackiness for the first 10 minutes after removing. My face felt refreshed and looked a little brighter and my skin felt slightly plumped and super moisturized.

This made my face feel happy and would definitely be great for the winter/colder months. I loved it and would absolutely repurchase! (For as long as they're still making them, anyway ๐Ÿ˜ข)


(The site is still not letting me post the ingredients picture for some reason - apparently I'm only allowed one picture at a time ๐Ÿค”)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh boo about the picture @Shosh85! Glad the mask was good though. Not sure how I feel about some of the latest updates. I'm disappointed we can't switch to the html because I enjoyed messing with the code if something I was doing wouldn't cooperate how I wanted. Hopefully they get the picture thing fixed. I was able to add a ton when I just posted so maybe it's resolved.
