@itsfi @Thank you so much for the tag 

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

@SportyGirly125, you’re welcome. πŸ˜€

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

Thank you so much @itsfi! I think I will pass on the new version, hopefully they will rerelease the original at some point. 

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

@faeriegirl, I would love it if they rereleased the original. πŸ’›πŸ― I’m inclined to think that’s more wishful thinking on our part now that they have this new vegan version, limited edition though it may be for the time being. I’d be happy too if they just released the original occasionally, like in the past, for the holidays, etc. If that were to happen, I would definitely stock up. πŸ› 

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

Wow @@itsfi , this is such a thorough review.   can't believe it's still LE, though.. I'll probably get it, but I'm miffed about the scent change.  Also the price point, last year was $2 less and came with two masks, eh πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

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

Thank you @danielledanielle! πŸ˜ƒ I’m bummed about the scent change too. The scent on the original is one of those that is very distinctive, in a good way. Not sure whether the brand plans to discontinue the original with the intro of the new vegan formulation. I personally would like for them to keep the original. 🀞🏼 Even if it’s bringing it back on occasion, like in a holiday set, as they have in the past. If you do end up getting the new vegan version, I’d love to get your take on it.

I is for illuminating

I could not resist trying this after seeing @itsfi post a review, even though it was a bad one. It’s just such a weird concept for a mask 

the mask itself was a bit large and had a pleasant sort of medicine floral scent. I could see it being a love or hate it scent - it definitely reminded me of something but I couldn’t put my finger on it. 

I put the mask on and pressed the points as instructed and then left it in for 15 minutes. 

I would agree that this was kind of just a gimmick. My skin did feel hydrated and not tacky after so it wasn’t a total dud, but those pressure points did not do anything.

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

@Kim888  Darn for gimmick masks. Always sucking us in. 

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

@Kim888 taking one for the team!! πŸ˜† The pressure points are so interesting though, I totally get it!! Did you press on them at all while wearing it?

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

@lmaster The instructions said to press them when I put it on and then again before taking it off. It wasn't unpleasant or anything, it just didn't really seem to do anything. 

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

I know pressure points in the face have some part in relieving stress @Kim888 or something... Now I can't remember exactly 

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

@Kim888, sorry the pressure points on this one didn't work out for you either. The concept is interesting and makes you curious; it's too bad it didn't pass muster. One of the rare occasions when Mediheal missed the mark.

 you guys MUST get into this mask. The light exfoliation properties and the enzymes in this mask slowly breakdown all of the dead skin and rough patches on your face. It’s almost like a resurfacing treatment all within only 2 minutes !

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

@Bparker73  I've been curious about this one! Happy to hear it works great for you!! πŸ˜ƒ

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

@Bparker73, this reminds me that I have a promo sample of this resurfacing treatment. Nice to hear that you like it.

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

@Bparker73 so glad to hear this is working so well for you

H for Hanskin Hyaluron

This soft, thin, pink-hued microfiber sheet of the Hanskin Real Complexion Hyaluron Moisture Mask is saturated in a clear, medium thick essence that to my nose, has a slightly herbaceous scent. Given the mask is said to be free of pigment, it seems that its pink shade comes from the French rose water and strawberry and raspberry extracts. Adherence was good and fit was better than the typical sheet mask in that the only adjustments I needed to make were to cut away about 1-1/4"from the chin and jawline and to make a few minor incisions to the lower inner eye area to help the material lay flat against my nose bridge. The mask started to dry up in certain areas (i.e., philtrum) around the 30-minute mark, which is when I removed it. There's a good amount of extra essence in the packet that could have been layered atop the mask to extend the wear time. The tack that results is noticeable but not uncomfortable. Results-wise, skin looks and feels refreshed, hydrated and more plump. I feel that similar results could be had with other sheet masks but fit and feel of the microfiber sheet on this one lends itself nicely to unwinding after a long day, making this a mask I would happily use again or gift - a "nice to have" mask but not necessarily a "must have" one. 

 

LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Original is an oldie-but-goodie. I have a few mini sizes that I like to refill as I work through the tub, and leave in various places around the house and my desk at work.

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

@itsfi  Sounds like a winning combo!!  I like that you leave lip masks all over the place πŸ˜‚

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

@ather, it started out as a quick way to redistribute the number of lip balms that collected at the bottom of my handbag or nightstand - I’d place one in the laundry room, on the side table, in a kitchen drawer, etc., but it has turned out to be quite useful, especially with masks making my lips more prone to dryness.

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

@itsfi  Such a brilliant idea!! I left part of one at work and in my work bag in case my lips dry out but I might put more around my house now! 

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

@itsfi ooh, Hanskin! Thanks for your review πŸ™‚ Haven’t see that brand for a whileβ€”it’s not trendy on the β€˜gram etc these days (tho it was all the rage in Korea when BB cream debuted). Chokchok plump skin, always a plus! I liked your detailed review 🌷cutting K-masks up always annoys me a bit (mixed-race so the facial contours don’t fit me) but worth it. Curious Q, open to everyone: what do you do with the extra essence in the packet? I know a lot of ppl who slather it on their neck/dΓ©colletΓ©. 

i think I’m the one person who’s never used a lip mask. Just Aquaphor!
