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

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I’ve noticed some hydrogel masks itch around the edges, @PrettyPaint. It’s uncomfortable, and unfortunately results in early dismissal:/ Have you tried the Skyn eye gels yet?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh wow @PrettyPaint. It’s not often you hear that an undereye patch sticks so well. πŸ˜† You mentioned it containing lavender, can you smell the lavender in the eye mask?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sounds like another win for patchology, @PrettyPaint

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  The Patchology mask sounds wonderful! So happy it worked out so well for you! πŸ˜ƒ

Its too bad the Milk patches caused a little irritation! The stick-on type is my favorite kind!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I apologize if this was posted in another thread somewhere, but I just noticed this new set of masks that's out πŸ‘‡

SEPHORA COLLECTION The Vitamins Masks Kit 

Of course in all of them fragrance is super high and the star ingredient is low - and watermelon is higher than mango in the Mango mask 🀷🏻...... and yet I still feel compelled to buy them for some reason πŸ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Looks like you @Shosh85, @lmaster and whoever else can be Guinea pigs for me and others. Let us know how they are! 😁

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  I keep telling myself I'm not buying anymore Sephora masks because I just feel like they should have a better ingredients list for the price........ but it's so hard to resist new masks! πŸ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm definitely going to give them a go @Shosh85 πŸ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Nice! I'm so curious about them! I told myself wasn't going to buy any more Sephora masks, but this with the 20% off is a pretty good deal......... I guess we'll see if I cave πŸ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, I was super curious when I saw the tagged product since I hadn’t seen the set before. 😍 Then I read the part about the star ingredient being low on the list alcohol high. πŸ˜” Well, that means my very low, low-buy is still in play! πŸ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi ohhhhhh alcohol??? @Shosh85 ugghhhh that might be a pass then

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  The ingredients don't show alcohol, just high fragrance.... @itsfi, did you mean to write alcohol?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Lol @Shosh85 @itsfi phewwww!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ack! Sorry @Shosh85 @lmaster! I thought alcohol was high up on the list of ingredients. Oops. πŸ˜œπŸ˜¬

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Unfortunately it seems the key ingredient being low and fragrance being high, is something all these Sephora masks have in common. I just did a quick glance through all the Sephora masks, (both the original and clean versions) and ALL of them had fragrance higher than their key ingredient, with the exception of the Aloe one - which has Aloe Juice higher than fragrance but the Aloe extract is lower.
Also, just because I thought it was interesting, in the ingredients list of the Coconut clean mask, fragrance is higher than coconut, but Watermelon is higher than them both! πŸ˜‚πŸ€” (there's no watermelon in the original version πŸ˜†)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  I remember I received one of the customer opinion surveys that they sent out about 1 week before they hit the shelves (if that -- maybe less).  Mainly it asked do you like the packaging?  Would you buy it based on the packaging?  Do you believe it is clean?  What if it only has 5 ingredients would you buy it?  Of course they only show the front of the packaging and I thought em, no... there's gonna be fragrance in there.  To me the survey was not to see if people were interested in such a product but if they would buy it based on the ridiculous product packaging and front of package claims (personally, I don't like their packaging - old or new as it just seems so busy.  I understand others may love.  It's just not my style).  But my take away was there was less focus on the ingredient / quality than there was on the marketing and packaging.  Which is disappointing because Sephora does seem to be trying to develop a cleaner (note I said cleaner, not clean) skin care line at a reasonable price point.   Sad the key ingredient is so low down on the list.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sigh. πŸ˜” @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Thanks! I hadn't noticed this set. I kind of feel like buying it too - probably because it's a better deal than purchasing separately.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Yeah, I think that's why it's more tempting - they're cheaper than what Sephora masks typically go for. That fragrance being so high is why I hesitate 😬

I really enjoy this version, the white sheet is highly saturated so that makes it more flexible and adheres better than the other two I've tried that seemed like they barely had any serum holding in the sheet. Scent was lemon/citrus wear time was 20 minutes, nicely hydrated and moisturized plump and felt great! Definitely a repurchase,, no notable tackiness that lasted 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Happy to hear this one worked well for you @lmaster. I have this one too but haven’t pulled it out yet. Good to know what to expect. πŸ˜ƒ
