Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It does look like a foot mask @lmaster! ๐Ÿ˜† The smell was fine just very very faint and not long lasting. I had to put my nose right up to it to pick up what subtle scent I did, and then it was gone. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

well this is interesting @itsfi .  Did you use the mask post wash or pre wash?  I always think I like the idea of these masks, but find that I end up grabbing the tubs of thick conditioner like masks instead.  Maybe I need to pick a month to concentrate on the cap versions. Super cool of the company to send this along with the replacements. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie, the directions say to wash with shampoo and then use the hair mask which I find is a pain in the patoots from a practical standpoint. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ I ended up jumping in the shower to shampoo my hair, what with having gotten sauce all in my hair and on me - yaaaay me! After towel drying my hair, I used the hair cap and then rinsed it out of my hair. 

It was super generous and thoughtful of them. Excellent customer service.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm with you on the pain in the patoots here @itsfi .  I always prefer to just leave the mask in while I'm finishing my shower.  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I was curious about these! The cap shape is quite interesting! The second photo looks like a foot mask bootie ๐Ÿค” My head is pretty big and bulbous so it probably wouldn't work for me either ๐Ÿ˜‚

What did it smell like? 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, โ€œbulbousโ€ is a great descriptor for the cap! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ The scent was suuuuper subtle, along the lines of the skin on grapes ๐Ÿ‡, maybe. Itโ€™s not a full on sweet, grape scent at all, and is very fleeting. I was trying to see if I could pick up an apple ๐ŸŽ scent, but nope.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I like the idea of the cap.๐Ÿค” I always have a hard time using hair masks because I would want to use it in the shower....may have to use just a regular cap dedicated to my hair masks. Have to admit, feel a bit dumb not thinking of it before๐Ÿคฆ @itsfi happy to hear about the good results though. And grapes are delicious! Would've happened at my house too๐Ÿ‡

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee, I highly recommend having a shower cap just for hair masks. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ  It took me a while to think of it but it really comes in handy. It doesnโ€™t have to be a fancy one either. I use the plastic ones that I can just rinse out after using a mask. The complementary shower caps that are in hotels work too.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhhh good idea about the plastic hotels ones. I do have the cheap ones lying around since teeni likes having her hair colored crazy. @itsfi I don't know bout you but I take everything from hotels when I stay. Within reason of course๐Ÿ˜‰ but I did go to HS with a girl when we were at state competition, fell head over heels with the down comforter & she took it home with her. ๐Ÿฉ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee, I used to take pretty much all the complimentary toiletry items from hotels. I wouldn't use the shampoo/conditioner or lotion during my stay (unless I forgot to bring my own and there wasn't a drugstore nearby or the hotel gift shop was closed), particularly when my stay at the hotel was work-related and I was there with other coworkers - my not using these items was because I didn't want to smell like everyone else. Hahaha! I know, I know - who thinks like that?! Well, clearly younger me did! LOL. Truth be told, I probably still feel the same way. Ha! In the last 5 or 6 years though, I've become very selective of which of the toiletries I take, in large part because I had accumulated so many DS and foils that I wanted to use up. I will take the mini sewing kit (comes in handy) and the shower cap; and, if there was a product or brand I liked. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Hubs usually use them when he goes out of town. @itsfi it saves him from having to use mine. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

hahaha gif.gif

Oh my goodness! My tummy and cheeks hurt from laughing @sonnydee! I'm still laughing. It's too much!

She took the comforter?!!! Noooooo!!! I'm assuming they charged her for it, yes?

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I have no idea. It was our senior year, 3 months away from graduation. But we were there for school -public high school -so whoever reserved/paid for the rooms. But yeah she rolled it up and stuffed it in her pillowcase I think? walked out with it. @itsfi 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

F is for factor and foam! This mask really did have a foam like texture that adhered well to my face. Not much excess serum. Not surprised because of the material. It was hydrating and had a pleasant fresh scent. Good one. And yes, I have difficulties posting images when I use the Sephora app.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart ohhhh I have tried a couple from this brand,, but not this one!! Love foam!!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

oh a foam mask sounds like fun @Weetart . I seem to have so many issues on the app too.  I keep deleting and reinstalling thinking I'll like it better. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  Foam masks are fun and this one definitely sounds nice! Glad you enjoyed it! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Okay I ordered masks from Missha that day brought up  the sale and they arrived already! @lmaster
