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

Thanks @Shosh85! I was very happy the lip mask stuck on so well. I didn't attempt talking but you're right, the couple I've tried were slippery. It always cracks me up how comically big they are.

2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Weird theme - another bubble mask..in sheet mask form. Fit?Almost perfect, it started bubbling as soon as oxygen hit the packaging so i had to work fast. i did have some trouble with the nose flap. it got tucked underneath & then when I finally got it down- half covered a nostril.๐Ÿ˜’ Bubbles up your nose is a bit annoying so I had to adjust again.. Smell? Roses. Real rose scent but it not listed. Lavender is & that is what I was hoping it would smell like. But this was a more than pleasant scent for me ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒน Consistency?It did bubble underneath & on the mask itself to the point I was worried it would slid off. I left it on for about 18 min..by then the bubbles had done there thing but still were hanging out ๐Ÿค— Ease of use? I remained still but sitting for this one. i was able to walk around but I didn't talk. i didn't want to risk getting bubbles in my mouth๐Ÿ˜ I did get some bubbles in my hair so on a messy scale from 1-5..1 being not messy & 5 being holy bubbles everywhere. I would give this a 3. Would I  purchase/try again?My skin & pores did look & feel cleaner. If it exfoliated, it was gentle. i added this on with a direct order and I would again. Would happily buy a box if I saw it at TJ or M. {in fact. that would be great. A single mask costs $4.} ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ the mask performed well.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee ohhhh this one sounds really good!! Does it happen to have witch hazel??

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

โ€ƒNope, no witch hazel. @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Awesome!! @sonnydee thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š going on the list ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This one sounds fun, @sonnydee, even the scent ๐Ÿ˜„ So much better when you can find a box of five for about the same price as one, though, isn't it?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Exactly@eshoe.   & I remind myself that & it helps curb some of my spending & shopping for sheet masks. Most of the time๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  Bubble masks can be a lot of fun, as long as you don't get any in your eyes or mouth! Probably a good decision to keep your mouth closed ๐Ÿ˜‚ Happy to hear this one performed well!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

No talking with this one @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ™Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

TJ Maxx boxes are so the way to buy masks @sonnydee! Hope it pops up there for you.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Me too. If not I'll just add 1 in my direct TCS orders @ShortErica to hit the free shipping mark ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

W = watermelon. Tonightโ€™s mask was the new Sephora Clean Watermelon Face Mask. 

 

I wish I could remember how I felt about the original "dirty" version of this mask, for comparison.I wish I could remember how I felt about the original "dirty" version of this mask, for comparison.

Notes: 

Spoiler

Claims: Hydrates, plumps, and tones skin. 

 

Ingredients: As with most Sephora sheet masks, this oneโ€™s star ingredient is near the end of the ingredients list. But rice ferment has high placement, so this mask should provide some brightening. And the amino acids found in sake should help to smooth skin texture and provide hydration. 

Spoiler
Aqua (Water), Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Rice Ferment Filtrate (Sake), Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Hydroxyacetophenone, Lecithin, Parfum (Fragrance), Sodium Polyacrylate, Sorbitan Caprylate, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrullus Lanatus (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate 

Performance: This thin, meshy, eucalyptus fiber mask contained almost all the clear runny gel serum available in the sleeve. Like the grapefruit mask, this one didnโ€™t cover as much of my jaw as Iโ€™d like. I did lots of eyehole tailoring, widening the holes at both corners and the top, mostly to keep the sheet from drooping down into my upper lash line and getting serum in my eyes. I also shortened the nose, widened the mouth hole, and shortened the philtrum to keep it off my cupidโ€™s bow. Iโ€™ll have to remember to make all these cuts on each of the Sephora Clean masks I boughtโ€”preferably before I put them on my face. 

 

There wasnโ€™t much of a watermelon scentโ€ฆ more like a very light watermelon scent thatโ€™s quickly lost in a rather prominent scent of sea shore candle buried in powdered laundry detergent. The sheet was comfy and cooling. This mask is meant to be worn for 5 minutes but I went a total of 35, then spent a couple minutes massaging and pressing in residual serum. I had no pilling and some mild tackiness. 

 

Results: Nicely hydrated and brightened skin, with a bit of bounciness. The maskโ€™s fragrance clung to my skin after I applied moisturizer; I canโ€™t smell it much right now, but I still hope it completely disappears overnight. I keep picking on the scent but I donโ€™t hate itโ€ฆ eh, itโ€™s just not at all what I expected from a watermelon mask, and itโ€™s not my favorite skincare scent in general. 

 

If this mask didnโ€™t have this โ€œhey, thatโ€™s not watermelonโ€ fragrance and Sephora lowered the price of singles (or offered a value-priced pack of 5 or 10), Iโ€™d consider buying more of this one. $5.50 USD seems a bit high for whatโ€™s mostly a hydrating rice ferment mask. My superstar hydrating mask (Abib Mild Acidic pH Heartleaf) costs $4 per individual sheet, and the box of 5 LuLuLun Premium Kyoto Geisha masks (which contains sake lees) works out to $4.60/mask, soโ€ฆ Iโ€™m just sayinโ€™. 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  I was having trouble pinpointing the scent on this one and your description was spot on! ๐Ÿ‘Œ I was pleased with the results as well, but it's hard to get past that scent. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne those old "dirty" masks ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  ๐ŸคฃI will forever be annoyed by the whole "clean" beauty trend. 

RE: Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne, this is the version I had in my recent gratis, and I think I described it as having a laundry detergent-type scent. It really threw me off guard! I bought the Lychee version to try, hoping for better luck with that one. Iโ€™ve never tried to cut a mask prior to placing it on my face; most times Iโ€™m lucky just to get it unfolded before dripping most of the serum all over the sink. I might try it just out of curiosity sometime ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Re: RE: Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  That laundry detergent fragrace seems to be in a lot of Sephora's sheet and stick masks. Sephora really loves that scent for some reason! 

 

I also bought the lychee mask, and a few other: spirulina, pomegranate, pineapple (which I might regret; we'll see how my face handles it), and coconut. Interestingly, the coconut mask contains more watermelon extract than this watermelon mask. ๐Ÿ˜„ Anyway, can't wait to hear your thoughts on the lychee mask! Let's hope it doesn't smell like laundry. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  Have you tailored a mask while it was on your face? If so Iโ€™m impressed!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather  Yep, I tailor most masks while they're on my face. ๐Ÿ™‚ I use a pair of blunt nosed brow/beard trimming scissors that have curved-out tips, so I can't accidentally stab myself while cutting. 

 

I'm still considering buying a second larger pair of scissors for jobs like chin trimming, but these do the job just fine.I'm still considering buying a second larger pair of scissors for jobs like chin trimming, but these do the job just fine.

I do cut some masks before putting them on my face, though. I use a lot of different LuLuLun masks, so I pretty much know how their sheet fits me. I can tailor those as soon as I pull 'em from their pouches/box. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne I didn't care for this one much, I agree the scent was mehhh, and I felt it stayed pretty tacky

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  I wasn't too annoyed with the tackiness; I've used masks with far more tack than this one. Moisturizer helped tone it down some. But that scent... could've done without that. This mask should've smelled like watermelon, dang it! 

 

Also, I don't know why Sephora markets this as a watermelon mask. They should call it a rice/sake mask instead, since there's more of that in the formula than watermelon extractโ€”and rice ferment is good stuff. Hmpf.
