@ather it left a good impression! So I'm πŸ˜„

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

Sounds like a nice one, @lmaster!

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

@quspork it was perfect!!

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

@lmaster  Soft and hydrated skin sounds wonderful!  And I really like the picture.  Science can make beauty possible πŸ’•

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

Isn't that the truth!! @Cissy63 

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

@lmaster  I thought this was a nice one too!

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

@Shosh85 yaaaaaaay!! I'm glad it was not a dud!!

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

@lmaster @itsfi @Kim888 The Korean translation for viscous is often confused with the word gummy.  They’re synonyms or close enough that a less precise word is likely to have be chosen. The thicker serum is likely what they were referring to.   Checking the source of a mask with a language translator for any confusing words can often help to figure out what the original untranslated meaning was 

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

@heartsmyface this is indeed a rabbit hole 🀣 very interesting!! Thank you for the info!! 

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

That's interesting @heartsmyface. I thought the Korean word for viscous was pronounced "jeomseong" or maybe "jumdo"? Is there another Korean word for it that is specific to or often used in connection with skincare or sheet masks?

 

There is a Korean word the phonetic spelling is "gummy", but the direct translation for that in English is spider. Hmmm, this has now made me even more curious. πŸ€” @lmaster @Kim888 

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

@itsfi  Oh I’m not sure!  Hahah, it’s a rabbit hole going through the thesaurus in other languages in general!   you can get lost for hoursπŸ˜†

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

@lmaster @Kim888 The "gummy" descriptor is in reference to the sheet itself, primarily the fit of the mask, and not the essence or serum which saturates it. The design and component of gummy sheet masks are supposed to be of such quality that they adhere to and fit the entire face in such a way that there's no gaps between it and your skin - no air bubbles, etc. Maybe the "gummy" term is meant to suggest it sticks to the skin the same was as gum might stick to surfaces. The intended fit of "gummy masks" is what many of us have described as "second skin" or "hugging" or "cocooning" our face. 

 

lmaster, you mentioned you loved the fit - would you say it felt like second skin or that the sheet hugged or cocooned your face?

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

Yes yes!! Ok @itsfi @Kim888 this makes so much more sense!! Once again, I appreciate your knowledge 😘

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

Thank you for the info @itsfi !!! Mine didn’t have particularly stand out adherence so maybe that was the disconnect for me ! but they can’t all be winners I guess !

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

@Kim888, have you tried other masks form the brand? I tried one from another line, it was from their Creme Coating line (the beige one) and it was amazing - fit and feel were good and the results excellent - one I have in the queue for this brisk weather. So nourishing. 

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

@itsfi no I think that’s the only mask from the line I tried ! 

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

@Kim888, here's what the packaging of the mask I used looks like -

There's also one with blue packaging and an image of a block of ice that I'm recalling as being geared towards cooling. 

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

@lmaster @Guess gummy just doesn’t mean anything for them haha - but glad the mask was otherwise good! This looks like an interesting one!! 

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

@Kim888 it was a good one!! Just don't know where gummy comes into play 🀣

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

@lmaster @Kim888, I might suggest they include some gummy bears with it. I'd be even more incentivized to pick up a sheet mask if it included gummy bears. hahaha! πŸ€£ Clearly it's time to start making dinner.

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

@itsfi  I want gummy bears as a bonus with my masks too!  The gelatine in gummy bears has skin firming benefits so it would be β€˜on brand’ πŸ˜†
