Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Hahaha @Shosh85! If you pick up the Farmhouse Fresh chocolate sundae mask and do a taste test, just be sure to have something chocolate-y nearby. ๐Ÿซ Er, so you can compare it to what it should taste like. Yeah, that's it. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Oh, I meant that the sheet mask tasted very vaguely of milk chocolate (not dark chocolate like the mask's name). But I will make sure to try all different kinds of chocolate the next time I use the mask. For science, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰


I must be so used to snail mucin or the CosRx snail mucin essence because I don't find it stringy at all. Hahaha! ๐Ÿคฃ When I was pressing in the excess serum, the lightbulb totally went off and I thought "ohhh, I wonder if this is what folks mean by 'stringy'?" Now I know. ๐Ÿ˜Š


The Crate 61 chocolate lip balm is so good! ๐Ÿซ I've been hoarding it but did a declutter of my lip balms and that was one that not going anywhere other than on my lips! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  Have you tried the CosRx Advanced Snail 92 All in one Cream? That one is pretty stringy to me and I actually find it to be more stringy than the essence. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85, so I pulled out my DS of that CosRx cream. I agree that the cream is stringy and more so than the essence. The XOY dark choco mask is more stringy than the cream. Speaking of the cream, did you find it moisturizing enough on its own? It could be that my skin is extra dehydrated and dry right now, but Iโ€™ve used it for the past few days and I donโ€™t find it moisturizing enough. ๐Ÿค” Just curious what your experience with it has been. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi   I think I need to try this stringy milk chocolate sheet mask ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am super curious! 
I definitely agree the cream isn't moisturizing enough on it's own, which is why I usually layer it with something. I'll be interested to see how it does in the summer. ๐Ÿค”

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Ah, I see. Iโ€™ll also be interested to see how the cream holds up in the summer @Shosh85! My skin leans oilier then but is also dehydrated so I can see the CosRx cream coming in handy. Iโ€™ll include my FS in the summer rotation. 

If you try the XOY chocolate mask, ๐Ÿซ  would love to know your thoughts on it. I think the stringy-ness works in its favor! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85, I haven't tried the cream but I have a full size and DS of it. I'll have to give it a try. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

The chocolate mask looks super interesting @itsfi ! The stringy thing sounds weird though! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Kim888, it was a bit odd for me, but mainly because I don't know, for some reason, I don't find snail mucin super stringy? But the essence / serum from this mask certainly was. Not in a bad way; just meant more pressing / patting of the serum into the skin. I've used other XOY masks (an eggplant one) and it had a completely different consistency. I have another one of this dark choco one and I've made a note on the back of it to check for "stringiness". ๐Ÿ˜

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This looks like a delicious lineup, @itsfi but I love the caution on not actually trying to taste the Sundae Chocolate mask haha. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Haha @quspork! Gotta make sure us maskers are forewarned!! It tasted like I would expect something with actives and enzymes to taste - not good! ๐Ÿ˜‚  At least, I had some actual chocolate to nibble on to mask ๐Ÿคฃ the taste.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

N is for nourishing




Cosmetea Black Tea Mask

This is a thin cotton sheet mask that was saturated with a white milky serum. The scent was mostly black tea, but I feel like I got a few random whiffs of floral too.

The fit was very good and was only a little too long at the chin. The adherence was good and it was comfortable to wear the 35 minutes I had it on. There was some slightly sticky tack and it took about 45 minutes for the tackiness to completely go away, which makes me curious to try it as a primer. My skin definitely felt soothed and moisturized and also had some shine/glow to it.

I really enjoyed this one and will be happy to use up the ones I have! If it not for having a ton of these still, I probably would consider repurchasing.



Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85 I did like this one too!! Happy to see it make its way back on the thread 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster Glad to hear you like it too! The green tea one from the same line is good as well, and I definitely think both are great everyday masks! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Ooooh, I had forgotten about the serum in this one, @Shosh85. Like @quspork mentioned, a great everyday mask โ˜บ๏ธ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe  Yeah, the milky serum feels so nice! Definitely a great everyday kind of mask! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This one sounds lovely, @Shosh85. I haven't tried this version but have found that most other Cosmetea masks have been nice hydrating "everyday" masks. Glad to hear this wasn't an exception. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@quspork  I've only tried a few Cosmetea masks, but I agree they make great everyday masks! Would definitely love to try more! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85, ooof!! ๐Ÿ˜ฃ I know floral scents donโ€™t agree with you; this one probably wasnโ€™t too bad if you kept it on, yes? Whoa! ๐Ÿ˜ณ It took 45 minutes for the tack to completely disappear?!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ The final results sound wonderful - Iโ€™m all for soothed, moisturized and dewy skin! โ™ฅ๏ธ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  I actually liked the scent - It smelled mostly like Black Tea to me. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I know I could just put moisturizer on, but tack never bothers me, so I just like to test it and see how long it lasts. Next time I'll definitely have to try it as a primer! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I love that you test out how long the tack lasts @Shosh85 - you are a dedicated masker, my friend! I don't mind tack, either; I find it helpful most of the time - good for really gripping my next skincare products or makeup. ๐Ÿ˜

M is for magnificently moisturizing masks

More M's - Moonshot Moonbright MaskMore M's - Moonshot Moonbright Mask

Moonshot Moonbright Mask is a soft, very thin microfiber sheet mask coated in a slightly sweet, slightly earthy floral-scented, light-but-rich creamy essence. Adherence is wonderful, and fit along the perimeter and at the corners of the eyes and mouth can be adjusted for a more tailored fit. This mask claims to moisturize, brighten, and tone the skin. I'm not sure about that latter claim, but it definitely moisturizes and brightens. My skin felt soft, smooth and very nourished after having this mask on for my usual half hour. My complexion also had a fresh, bright, dewy radiance to it. This is a love and an absolute repurchase . . . once I figure out where I picked it up. ๐Ÿค”


M - Dr Belmeur moisturizing.jpg

The Face Shop Dr. Belmeur Mild Derma Deep Moisturizing Mask is a fresh, floral-and-citrus scented, cream serum soaked gauze-y mask that beautifully clings to the skin in a soft, cozy, nourishing embrace, soothing and moisturizing it along the way for, in my case, an half hour. My only regret is that I waited so long to use this wonderful sheet mask. A definite repurchase.
