@Shosh85 sorry the holika wasn't impressive, I've not tried that one, but the packaging is pretty cool

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

@lmaster  The results were actually pretty good, the scent just wasn't the greatest.

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

I'm not a huge fan of earthy scents @Shosh85 

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

Good to see another Peripera winner, @Shosh85! It's such a shame they aren't going to keep making these.

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

@quspork  I don't think there's been one Peripera mask that I haven't liked!

111 Skin Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask

The 411:
Spoiler
What I Liked: Adherence on the 111 Skin Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask is good, especially for a hydrogel mask, which has a tendency to slip and slide around the face. The mask itself is a beautiful rose gold shade, smells wonderfully of roses and imparts a relaxing cooling sensation while worn and also for some time after removal. The essence in this mask boasts some good-for-you-skincare ingredients, including:
 
  • Brightening: niacinamide, licorice root extract, colloidal gold
  • Soothing: allantoin, panthenol, centella asiatica extract,
  • Hydrating and Moisturizingcarrageenan, allantoin, panthenol, trehalose, sodium hyaluronate, rose extract, hydrogenated lecithin
  • Anti-aging: hydrolyzed collagen, hexapeptide
 
Results-wise, 20 minutes of wear delivered a lovely, fresh and bright radiance to the skin, which makes this a very good choice to use to prep the skin for makeup before a special event or occasion. 
 
Area(s) for Improvement: Size and Fit of the mask were off in that I found the eye holes were very small and narrow (and I wouldn't say that my eyes are particularly large either), there was a lot of extra material around the nose, and the mask was overly wide, but that latter issue is a fairly common occurrence for me. Price is also another area that could be better, at least in my mind, as this pretty mask will cost you a pretty penny . . . $32 + sales tax worth of pennies. Though, it comes out to $27 per mask if you purchase a set of 5 and $25 per mask if you pick up a 10-pack.  I was very fortunate to receive this mask as part of a subscription box and also as part of unicorn mail. While I'm not adverse to splurging on a sheet mask every now and again, $32 is quite the splurge. FYI: this mask contains citrus fruit extract, alcohol and added fragrance, which have been known to be common allergens so those who are sensitive or just seeking to avoid such ingredients will likely want to pass on this one (your wallet thanks you for it!)

My last mask for the year. There's a little less than two-and-an-half more hours until the clock strikes midnight here, but I think I'm going with the East Coast which has already bid adieu to 2020. Wishing everyone a healthy, safe and happy 2021! ๐Ÿค—
 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Finally read your review on this one - totally agree that it's a nice one but pricey. Mine came from a subscription box, too. I'm not sure if yours was like this, but it was interesting that the eye/mouth holes still had the cut outs in the pack. I'm not sure if they are all like that. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint, one of the perks of sub boxes is being able to try things I might not otherwise pick up on my own. I just couldnโ€™t keep up with all the products I would accumulate between sub boxes and what Iโ€™d personally pick up. My 111Skin mask had the holes for this eyes but interestingly, not the mouth. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Haha. How random that yours didn't have the mouth hole. I really wish I knew about the mask manufacturing process, but I guess their hole punch thing was having issues (that's how I envision it, at least). 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Very random @PrettyPaint! lol. If I were to visit Korea, taking a tour of a sheet mask facility would be on my list of things to do. My parents traveled through parts of Asia years ago, including Korea. They, in fact, went to companies that made sheet masks and kimchi. They don't remember much details other than they were there. What?! It made me question whether we are related. Learning to make sheet masks and kimchi?! How do you forget things like that?! ๐Ÿคฃ 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

This one does seem to have better adherence than so many other hydro gels, @itsfi - but yikes on the price! There are some good ingredients, I am surprised by how lengthy the list is, though. Raspberry ketones are a new one, I have not seen that in a mask yet.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, it's definitely not a common ingredient in sheet masks. It's in the Callyssee coffee mask as well. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I wonder if it is used to add a pleasant scent, @itsfi ๐Ÿค” And thank you for introducing me to a brand I had not yet heard of; a good coffee mask sounds ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I'm always curious about these luxury masks, but never enough to buy one. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It sounds nice! Glad you were able to try this one out without paying full price for it๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

This one was definitely fun to try @Shosh85. There are so many new and innovative masks constantly coming to market, at various price points, that, at least for me, it makes a mask like this 111Skin, as lovely and luxe as it is, feel less like something that needs to be tested. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi wow that's a luxe mask! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It is definitely a treat @lmaster๐Ÿ˜

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi @Glad it worked for you! I also tried it from a subscription and agree - it was nice but Iโ€™m not sure Iโ€™d run out and spend $30 on it 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Exactly @Kim888! There are other sheet masks out there that can provide similar results at a fraction of the price. That said, there is a certain luxe element to this one that some might like. I'm happy I was able to try it though; I can see how for some, this could make a nice splurge. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Tuesday and Wednesday's masking focused on prepping my skin for the new year with honey themed masking sessions that included a bunch of goodies, including another mask from the Etude House 0.2 mm Air Therapy collection.

The 411:
Spoiler
Adherence and fit of the Etude House 0.2mm Air Therapy Mask (Manuka Honey - Rich Moisturization) is similar to the olive varietal from the same line, which is to say that it's very standard for a sheet mask requiring some adjustments at the corners of the eyes and mouth and to the length at the chin/jawline for a more custom and comfortable fit. The essence on this manuka honey mask has a milky emulsion consistency - I mistakenly thought the olive mask and this manuka honey mask had the same type of essence, but this one is more akin to a light, thin milky serum. It also has a very subtle scent - sweet, but to me, not really reminiscent of honey. It's not an unpleasant scent; I would have just preferred that it smell more like honey. ๐Ÿฏ I left this mask on for my usual half hour and after removing the mask and pressing in the excess essence, there's a slight tacky-to-the-touch feel that I don't mind as I find it helpful when continuing on with my skincare routine, but I know the subtle tacky feel isn't something enjoyed by all. As far as results go, my skin felt hydrated and bouncy, and my complexion looked clear, fresh and brightened. This manuka honey mask is a nice one; while it is not my all-time favorite honey sheet mask, it is one I like very much and one that I could see working very well for daily masking.

@itsfi   Ouhh everything here is so good! I think I just like honey.  And huge doe foot applicators!
