Oh wow. I don't think I've tried a snail mask but the creamy serum on this one sounds like it would be wonderful. Another gorgeous photo. Do you usually keep notes on your masks in a notebook?

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

@missy94612, the serum on this mask was great for my skin. πŸ‘πŸΌ Snail mucin 🐌 won’t be for everyone but it works well for me; I love it. I know some folks here have given it a try and loved it as well. 


I have a few different ways of taking notes on masks, a combination of handwritten and digital ones.

Going way back to last month’s multi-step mask challenge, and an E for Electrolyte:

This Holika Holika Chamomile Tea Brew Sheet Mask was the final of four that I tried, the others being Lavender, Green Tea and Hibiscus. This is a straightforward two-step mask. After removing the tea sachet from the upper pouch, it is placed into the larger packet and allowed to β€˜steep’ for a few minutes. I kneaded it a bit, then removed and applied to my my face. Unlike the Lavender and Green Tea, this one did not have much of a scent. It  also did not turn pink, like the Hibiscus did. The serum was watery, and the mask fit fairly well, with a bit of flyaway occurring around the chin area after a few minutes. It felt soothing, although I preferred the Green Tea for its gentle and calming scent. Not a bad mask, I would definitely use it again but won’t be in a hurry to repurchase.

Vitamasques Electrolyte Watermelon

After falling in love with the Lychee mask, I picked up the Watermelon version to see how it stacked up. I was a little surprised to find the scent leaning more toward fruity-berry rather than watermelon. The fit was decent, much like the lychee, with a little snipping around the eye area to ease the comfort. I left it on around 25 minutes, then removed to finish the rest of my skincare including the last step, Glow Recipe Mini Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask 1 oz/ 30 mL. I also used the Yensa Watermelon Lip Oil, which I find to have a deliciously sweet watermelon scent. It is a very thin oil so I use it as a base and usually layer the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Gummy Bear for staying power. The Vitamasques was good, and I look forward to trying others; this just wasn’t my favorite of the two I have tried so far.

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

@eshoe  Those Holika Holika Tea masks are fun! The Camomile is the only one I haven't tried yet - it sounds nice!

I have the Watermelon Vitamasques mask, but haven't tried it yet - I'm super curious about the scent now! I would've hoped for Watermelon, but fruity/berry isn't so bad either πŸ˜‰

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

You know, @Shosh85 - you  are right. Fruity isn’t bad at all. It’s just like when you take a sip out of a glass expecting water, but instead it is milkπŸ€ͺ🧐 

 

 

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

@eshoe  

The chamomile mask looks fun.

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

It was, @missy94612. But I am still curious how well a regular tea bag would work if I slipped it into an opened mask packetπŸ€”

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

@eshoe  

Do you think you'll try that? Would be interesting to see if you got the same results, wouldn't it?

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

@missy94612I have a pound of hibiscus petals that I ordered in error, and I do intend to steep them in a mask. Time to figure out if that will be a DIY or just placing it into a generously-soaked sheet mask packetπŸ˜‰

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

@eshoe  

A pound? Oh, I hope you or someone in your house likes hibiscus tea. lol.

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

Well I think I can use some portion for masks, @missy94612 - based on my experience☺️

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

@eshoe  The langeine gummy bear scent is to die for!! The watermelon mask sounds lovely!

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

@ather the lip mask reminds me of children’s ibuprofen πŸ˜‚ I enjoy the longevity but am really eyeing the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Peach Iced Tea

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

@eshoe  Oh no. I totally can get that now that you said that. I believe @lmaster  tried the peach tea one. 

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

Yep @ather @lmaster , now that I have officially finished my LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Original, I am on the clock as the gummy one only has around two years left!πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

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

@eshoe  😝 might need a back up!!! I actually like mini versions of lip masks and eye creams because for some reason they take me so long to finish and I end up throwing them out most of the time!

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

@ather @eshoe oh yes!!! It's so so so good

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

I am going to be trying it, @lmaster - hopefully sooner rather than later;)

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

@eshoe, I didn’t see anything in the INCI list to suggest a fruity-berry scent other than added fragrance and that just makes me wonder why the brand didn’t go for a fragrance that smelled fruity like a watermelon πŸ‰ instead?! πŸ˜† Nice to hear it was a good mask for you even if it’s not a favorite.

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

Have you tried this one yet, @itsfi? I tried a few different angles with the scents, but only came up with fruity. Which…I will totally take over floral! It wasn’t bad at all; fun, just not what I expected based on my first (and most amazingly fruit-basket-upset-scented) mask. Learning how to find more to love than dislike over the course of masking helps me to love it more in general. So fruity works sometimes, and that is okπŸ˜‰

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

@eshoe, I thought I had, but now I think I must have confused it with the avatara watermelon sheet mask. πŸ‰ The Target store closest to me carries both brands and I picked up one of each from both avatara and Vitamasques, or at least, one of each from the ones the store had in stock. πŸ˜‰
