 Nope, no witch hazel. @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Awesome!! @sonnydee thank you 😊 going on the list πŸ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This one sounds fun, @sonnydee, even the scent πŸ˜„ 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 time😝

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 πŸ˜‚ Happy to hear this one performed well!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

No talking with this one @Shosh85 πŸ™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 πŸ˜‹

RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

D is for Deep Purifying. I whipped out your Charcoal Face Mask. My skin felt nice and smooth after a good soak. Of course I’m not sure if I have found a lookatme mask that I haven’t liked. Really a lovely mask. Light lemony slight fruit scent. Comfortable but a bit short in the forehead, not a dealbreaker.

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

@Weetart  I'm not a big fan of charcoal masks because of my skin type, but I thought this one was great! Happy to hear you've been enjoying the line! πŸ˜ƒ

RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Happy you enjoyed this one, @Weetart-it really is a nice charcoal mask:)

D is for Dewy Skin Mask. I love this sheet mask - one of my favourites. Makes my skin feel incredible - so plump and hydrated.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ladyassassin  This one's on my list to try sometime! Happy to hear you love it! πŸ˜ƒ

RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ahhhh this is on my to-do list, @ladyassassin! Curious if you’ve tried both, and if so, you have a favoriteπŸ€”

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

@eshoe Tatcha's other mask? Hmm, I have not. I will have to look into it though! See which one I like better!

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

The Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Lifting Mask 4 x 0.68 oz/ 20 mL masks is the other one that I know of, @ladyassassin. I don’t see it in a single here, unfortunately! The brand has it, though, and at $25 it’s quite a splurge for a single use mask😳 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ladyassassin  This is my fav too!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

W = watermelon. Tonight’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 one’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 didn’t cover as much of my jaw as I’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 cupid’s bow. I’ll have to remember to make all these cuts on each of the Sephora Clean masks I boughtβ€”preferably before I put them on my face. 

 

There wasn’t much of a watermelon scent… more like a very light watermelon scent that’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 mask’s fragrance clung to my skin after I applied moisturizer; I can’t smell it much right now, but I still hope it completely disappears overnight. I keep picking on the scent but I don’t hate it… eh, it’s just not at all what I expected from a watermelon mask, and it’s not my favorite skincare scent in general. 

 

If this mask didn’t have this β€œhey, that’s not watermelon” fragrance and Sephora lowered the price of singles (or offered a value-priced pack of 5 or 10), I’d consider buying more of this one. $5.50 USD seems a bit high for what’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, so… I’m just sayin’. 

 

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! πŸ‘Œ I was pleased with the results as well, but it's hard to get past that scent. 😬

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne those old "dirty" masks πŸ€£

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  🀣I will forever be annoyed by the whole "clean" beauty trend.
