Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@PrettyPaint  BioBelle makes some great masks - their originals are definitely my favorite.

Im not a big fan of the TM I'm Real masks either, but I have heard good things about the Master Lab line! Glad you liked it! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 Thank you! The Master Lab mask seemed so different from the I'm Real masks that I could hardly believe it was the same brand. Definitely a pleasant surprise. πŸ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I used that Biobelle recently as well, @PrettyPaint. I was hoping for a little more moisturizing maybe, but all in all it was pretty decent. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork  I feel like some of their other versions that I've tried are a bit more moisturizing. From what I remember, there also wasn't much in the way of extra serum. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Any night you are able to mask for a bit is nice, @PrettyPaint. I’ve had more off nights than on recently, and I’ve had to accept that it’s totally ok. I just add some extra hydration in the AM to help even things outπŸ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  I haven't been making the time for masking as much lately either (some nights I'm just too tired). I think I'm going to make a bit more of an effort, though. Fortunately my skin isn't too dry at present with the weather, but I had forgotten how relaxing an evening mask can be.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@PrettyPaint my phone is full of β€˜intended to’ masking session pics 😊 Sometimes just getting a good cleanse and moisturizer is enough. And that will just be ok:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

C is for Coconut 



The new Sephora collection clean sheet masks finally were available and I grabbed a few. I was generously given the matcha tea version in the gratis from @TeamBIC which I loved!! 
This one is said to nourish and soothe.
The price is a bit high for one mask $5.50, I'm hoping these will be in some kind of a deal like buy 5 get one free....
Thin white sheet, beige colored serum with plenty extra in the sleeve. The scent was coconut, just not the sweet coconut I'm used to but still nice. The fit was pretty good, I could of made some cuts in the inner corner of the eyes, but as per uge I didn't πŸ˜† wear time was 15 minutes,, not 5.. I want to get my money's worth here. After removing my skin did feel soft and moisturized while massaging in the serum. A touch more hydrated but the tackiness on this one lasted, and you would need to apply moisturizer of some sort, or use it as a primer mask.
I have another one I'll use, but this particular version will not be a repurchase for me. I'm giving it a B


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  I need to try more of these out too! I tried mine for 5 minutes, because I was super curious to see if anything could happen in that short amount of time, but when I buy more, I'll definitely be wearing them loner! Glad this one was t least decent for you! Which other ones did you pick up? I really want try the Spirulina one! πŸ‘Œ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 I ordered watermelon, coconut, matcha, lychee and Grapefruit,,, but I'm going to get the other two today with the points offer πŸ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That sounds like a good deal, @lmaster πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I sure hope they do that deal @eshoe Sephora used to with the old version, I believe

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  Haha. I would also have definitely worn it longer than 5 minutes if it's $5.50. I agree that a sampler pack (at discount) would be perfect!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@PrettyPaint @lmaster Yes a "Collect Em All" trial set with the different varieties at a discount would intrigue me!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes yes!! @ShortErica @PrettyPaint 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@PrettyPaint with the old versions they did have a deal, so I'm hoping Sephora will do the same for these new ones sooner than later πŸ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Masking Hacks! I feel like I've learned so much on BIC. Here are the hacks I use and mostly don't know who to credit:

  • Use spa scissors for mask cutting 
  • Using/saving the extra serum in the packages for use on a different day
  • Putting a still moist mask on your neck after removing it from your face
  • Increasing wear time by using the extra in the package on the mask dry spots (I did this with the jelly masks)
  • Using makeup erasers to remove wash off masks - thanks @lmaster!


I'm sure there are plenty of others I've learned here but onto the masks. I went with some Yadah for the "Y."



My face
I started strong with the Brigthening. This is one I've bought two packs of last year and am glad I did. It is wonderful to use and share. I'd describe the scent as a medium level citrus. It has a nice fit and the material is a mesh like cotton. I applied extra gel in package to areas not as moist like nose and also on not covered areas like neck. This made it so I had a 30 minute wear as opposed to the 10-20 recommended. When removing there was gel still on some parts of the face. I rubbed it in and after it absorbed (which did take some time), I had not tack. My skin was bright (lives up to the name) and looked even. The scent is slightly strong for me but this is a repurchase mask. A.

Next up I went with the Revitalizing which was sent to me by the lovely @missjeanie (she also spoiled me with the Soothing one - gotta catch em all πŸ˜‰ )


My face
This has the same fit as brightening and is the mesh cotton material. To me it had a floral yet earthy maybe scent (ginseng, broccoli, cocoa, avocado in ingredients). The scent is what gets me on the mask. One of the times I used it I was really off put by it and another it didn't seem as bad. This experience it was fine but I just found the scent odd and not able to pinpoint. I kept with the "hack" of using the extra gel on mask. I did a 30 minute wear and this time used it on my neck. The Revitalizing left some tack after it absorbed. The most tack I felt was under the chin. My skin looked bright and nice, and maybe helped with lines a little bit, but I could be imagining it. The only strikes are scent and the chin tack. I'm debating between A- or B+. This is my number 3 of the Yadah jelly masks.

So although my plan was the 3 Yadah jelly masks for the weeks I took a diversion. My neck was killing me. I think it is the whole working from home and not having a defined work space and my head is always at weird angles when I'm on my laptop. Anyway, thank goodness for @keana1 sending me the Lise Waiter Spa Stress-Relief Patch


I didn't take a picture but at first I didn't place on neck well and it would pucker where sports bra rubbed. Once I adjusted and placed it lower, it stayed nicely,. I didn't get any warmth but it had a nice cooling sensation. The cooling lasted over 2 hours. I usually associate warmth with stress relief but the cooling was nice and good for relaxation It helped with headache and neck tension. This was very enjoyable and effective. I was sad I couldn't find information online. It smelled like peppermint sometimes but I didn't find it overwhelming. I see how this would be useful vs. a heating pad like at work. For me, I'd see it as a special occasion use type of product. I'm so happy keana shared not this one but another with me. I don't want to have another headache and neck tension but if I do, I know what I'll be using!

Curiosity got the better of me and I again, put the 3rd jelly mask aside to retry another style of Yadah mask to jog my memory. Although I may have bought myself a box, this particular Yadah Collagen Mask pack was sent to me by @emaisgr8. You can never have enough snail in your life and I appreciate having another to use. πŸ™‚


My face
This was a medium cotton and had a decent fit (the jelly masks were better). It had a generous philtrum but was a bit wide around the nose and mouth for me. There was not mut (non-descript maybe like cotton/paper) but scent had flower and fruit extracts in ingredients. Snail is very high in the ingredients. It had a 20 minute wear then I used it on my neck. There was no tack and my skin looked even. I'd say the least enjoyable part was the material, oh no I'm getting to be a material snob! Haha. I prefer the jelly masks but will gladly use the pack I have of the collagen and packs of other kind with similar material and different theme. Again, I'm weighing between A- or B+ but leaning B+ because the other material is fresh on my mind.

I could have worn the last jelly, Soothing over the weekend and thought that would be great after being in the sun. But nope, the weekend got away for me. So yesterday (Monday), I snuck in this final Y mask after doing pore care.


My face
There was a clean with a slight touch of floral scent on the mask. Again, great fit and the mesh-cotton material I like. I added extra jelly like the others and did a 30 minute wear + neck. It was still very wet on my face. Once it absorbed, it had not tack. It was very soothing and enjoyable. My skin looked nice and even. I do wish the jelly masks in general helped a little more with fine lines but I don't think that's their claim so I'll give them a pass. A for this one too. I'd definitely pick up the Brightening and Soothing if I saw them after my no buy. I'd debate about Revitalizing but might feel bad leaving it behind.


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica Jelly masks are so perfect for the summer! If I remember right, I think the brightening was my favorite of the 3. Have you tried all 3 before? If so, which was your favorite?

The Lise Watier patch sounds relaxing! Definitely something I could see myself buying in bulk πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I did a jelly comparison of the Yadah last year around this time too (that's at least what my notes tell me πŸ˜‰) @Shosh85  I think Brightening eeks out Soothing by results though I appreciate the more mild scent of the Soothing one.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortEricaI really, really enjoyed the Lise Watiers Spa masks that @keana1 sent me. They were soothing and for pretty much anywhere; shoulders, neck, dΓ©colletage. Thank you for the run-down on all of the goodies!
