The Saem Power Centella Sheet Mask

 

Material:

Pastel green cotton that was sort of in between thin and medium thickness

 

Serum:

White and milky and there was a lot extra

 

Scent:

Sort of herbal and plant-like. I'm not sure what Cica smells like, but it's possible that's what it was. The scent was light and not very noticeable while the mask was on.

 

Fit:

Almost perfect- just a little too long at the chin and jawline.

 

Wear Time:

40 minutes

 

Tack:

None

 

Results:

My skin looked a little brighter and felt soft, hydrated, moisturized and had a little bit of a glow.

 

Repurchase?

Yes, absolutely!! The milky serum, great results and ingredients definitely makes it a repurchase for me πŸ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85 sounds like a major winner!!

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

@lmaster  It most definitely was! πŸ˜ƒ

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

This one sounds great @Shosh85! ! I just read that it might be one of your favorite Cica masks? <<eyeing mask stash to see if it might be time to pick up more masks ... nope! lol>> I'll keep this one in mind for my next sheet mask haul. Love that the mask is pastel green - probably from the cica extracts, yes?

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

@itsfi  I think the mask itself was green, because the serum was white/milky.
Cica is definitely one of my most favorite skincare ingredients and I've tried a lot of Cica masks, but I think the milky serum in this one just really sets it apart from the others. πŸ˜ƒ

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

I really love the sounds of this one, @Shosh85! When you mention the possible cica scent, I think of the Dr. Jart+ cica line. I wonder if that is a true representation of it. Herby & fresh. It is very pleasant:) 

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

@eshoe  I love Cica and this was probably one of my most favorite Cica masks! I'd really like to smell a Cica plant sometime, I'm so curious to know exactly what it smells like!

 

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

@Shosh85 I think at some point last year I looked on to buying some seeds to grow it at home. I decided against it because almost anything green I touch diesπŸ™„ I am so curious!

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

Vitamin C served as an overall theme for most of my masking this week, in honor of the letter of the week, starting with a spotlight on lemon / yuzu.

The material on the Etude House 0.2mm air Therapy Lemon Sheet Mask is exceptional - lightweight, super thin, soft, comfortable 0.2mm cotton, which allows the mask to adhere beautifully to the skin and around the contours of my facial features. While the mask is slightly too wide at the temples and too long at the chin, fit can be made to work; openings for the eyes and mouth are a smidge too narrow for my liking, but can be adjusted to lie better against my skin. This mask is drenched, and I mean drenched, in a faint lemon-scented, clear, watery liquid that is both runny and drippy coming out of the packet. There's enough serum here that my dehydrated-combo-currently-leaning-dry skin was fine with having this one on for 45 minutes. Its moisturizing and brightening claims are supported by the inclusion of niacinamide (4th ingredient listed), lemon extract (2500 ppm) and licorice root extract, and the results too, speak to those claims - my skin was well hydrated with a bright, radiant, healthy glow. An absolute repurchase. 
 
KAO Megrhytm Gentle Steam Eye Masks are one of, if not the, best discoveries I have made since focusing on my skincare and masking. It's a "go to" when I'm having trouble sleeping, or struggling with allergies, headaches or a cold. Good sleep is a gift but it's not always easily had, at least for me. These steam eye masks make it easier to come by. 

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

I agree @itsfi those eye masks are the most fabulous ever!!

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

@lmaster, they're just so good! πŸ’– My preference is for the unscented one but I really do love the scented ones as well. It's probably too early to use one <<said while sipping my morning coffee>> πŸ˜‚ Will have to use one tonight.

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

@itsfi  Lemon is such a great ingredient!!! I didn’t know the warming eye mask came in lemon!! Those are one of my favourite discoveries of 2020

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

100% agree @ather! I love lemon . . . in sheet masks, eye masks, cupcakes, water, etc. πŸ˜† πŸ’›πŸ‹ I think the steam eye masks list the lemon one as either yuzu or citrus or citron. It's one of the more heavily scented of the steam eye masks. When I first used it, I thought the scent might be too much for me, but it actually really helped. 

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

This EH line is just exceptional, @itsfi πŸ€© they are the β€˜my face but better’ of the sheet mask world!

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

@eshoe, this EH sheet mask collection is excellent!! πŸ’– Love the variety within the range too. Do you have a favorite or favorites among the different ones in the line?

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

@itsfi my personal preference is for those with milky-serum. I love the argan, ceramide and olive πŸ«’ best😊

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

@eshoe, yes to milky serum sheet masks! πŸ˜ I've used the olive one and like it very much. I have the argan and ceramide so it's good to know they're among your faves of the lot.

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

@itsfi the olive oil is just right, not a thing to change about it! These are the kind of masks I could use every night. I reach for them at least once a week, sometimes more. The fit, adherence, and how my skin feels afterwards are just right, every single time πŸ’— 

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

@eshoe, this line would be my first choice... yeah, my first choice, of individual sheet masks to use for daily sheet masking; mainly, the snail one πŸŒ with some of the other varieties thrown in here and there to mix it up.  

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

I don’t want to jinx it, @itsfi, but I hope this line is never discontinued.

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

@itsfi  I liked the EH Lemon mask too, but I didn't like that alcohol was so high up in the ingredients. I agree that the results are great!

 

Those steaming eye masks are sooo good! It's definitely easier to fall asleep with it on! πŸ˜ƒ
