To Post:

Each week features a different theme, as well as a letter of the alphabet for coming up with new masking ideas. 


Please include the brand and name of the mask you are trying out, as well as a photo if possible. 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. Don't forget to include a grade (thanks to @ShortErica for the idea) to help others along the way.


Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I can say @itsfi @Shosh85 it definitely helps boost the love meter ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  I'm so happy to hear you loved it! This, along with the Blueberry and Raspberry ones are a few of my most favorites from the brand! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I didn't want to take it off!! @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This pops up in just about every Ulta gwp bag so I wanted to try it & fit the theme for the week

 

Fit? Its a mud mask, its gray, dries & gets tight but you only notice if you really open your mouth wide (like a yawn) but i also left this on longer. I left it on for 6 min instead of 2

 

 

Smell?faint, like a herbal mud. Not bad & I had to really try to be able to sniff the scent

 

Consistency? Creamy clay but only spreads ok. It asks for a generous layer & i used the entire sample..not sure if a brush or applicator will make it easier 

 

Ease of use?ok after I got it all on. The generous layer is probably to help with the removal & i guess i wasn't generous enough๐Ÿคท. I used a cloth & still had to almost scrub to get this mask off. The good thing is it doesnt strip your skin..

 

Would I  purchase/try again?....my skin doesnt feel detoxified or fresh, if anything it felt like it left a bit of a residue. Not deeply clean like it promises. But it pops up on the reg so I can always try again leaving it on for 2 min...๐Ÿ˜’ ( smiley face is rolling its eyes. I don't like masking for such a short amount of time) i think you can get the same effect by just washing your face๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ewww @sonnydee we don't want any residue now ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee Thanks for sharing! I feel like everything I have tried from this brand is akin to your review - it's all fine but nothing is mind blowing 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Alot of their stuff I have tried is also heavily perfumed. But their hand cream is pretty good๐Ÿค—@Kim888 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee Thank you for the review of this mask.  Its great to read thorough feedback from other customers prior to trying products.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee Thank you for trying this mask! I have a couple of those samples (thanks a lot, Ulta) but haven't used them; haven't even looked up the ingredients for this mask yet. Your review tells me I'm not missing much. ๐Ÿคฃ

no, not missing much except for some frustration over a meh...mud mask that doesnot deliver what it promises..@WinglessOne oh well, more room now for other better masks

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee, your review has me chuckling. For this round, just washing your face, 1; free gwp Ahava mud mask, 0. ๐Ÿ˜† Perhaps just leaving the mask on for just 2 minutes will make all the difference... ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

One more entry for multi-masking week: V = very silly of me to over-apply this particular retinol serum under my eyes. 

 

Yes, I know 2 of these items aren't masks. :D But they're the reason I used both these green tea masks.Yes, I know 2 of these items aren't masks. ๐Ÿ˜„ But they're the reason I used both these green tea masks.

Last night was my first ever use of the SOBEL SKIN Rx 4.5% Retinol Complex Night Treatment 1.7 oz/ 50 mL, which is a bit stronger than my usual (The INKEY List Retinol Anti-Aging Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL). I used it atop my 10% AHA exfoliant, since I routinely use TIL Retinol that way, and had no discomfortโ€”except under my eyes, where I accidentally applied more retinol than I meant to. Oops. To stop the pre-burn tingle from going all 5 alarm on me, I slapped on my trusty JayJun Green Tea Eye Gel Patches. Aaaaah, instant cooling soothing relief! 

 

That put me in a green tea mood, so I chose a soothing and hydrating sheet mask for full face insurance: LuLuLun Premium Kyoto Green Tea Mask. I've reviewed this mask (and those JayJun eye patches) before in this thread, but hereโ€™s a super-shortened rehashed review: 

Spoiler

Claims: Evens out skin texture; hydrates, firms, and conditions skin. Relaxing green tea scent. (Um, I can just barely smell green tea in this mask.) 

 

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Propanediol, Panthenol, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinesis Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Seed Oil, Silkworm Cocoon Extract, Prunus Yedoensis Leaf Extract, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Fragrance 

 

Results: Soft, slightly firmer, and very happily hydrated and moisturized skin. Reduces my redness; calms and softens my skin. 

This reminds me to order more of the LLL green tea mask. I have just this one pouch of 7 sheets, and now there are 2 sheets left. I definitely want to have more of these on hand for the rest of the year. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  Love the green tea combo! I feel like green tea is great all year round, but it's even better the summer! 
The eye gels really sound great and I'm glad it could help soothe. ๐Ÿ˜Š Im running low on eye masks, so I'll have to make sure to try these out next! ๐Ÿ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 I hope you like the JayJun eye patches if you try them! And yes, green tea is a great all-season soother! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne Love green tea products.   I've got to try them!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@tjffc There are so many good green tea sheet masks out there! In addition to LuLuLun, Farmskin makes a good one; you can find all varieties of their masks at innerest (dot) net, and if you're lucky, you might find them in your local TJ Maxx or Marshalls (if you're in the US). Whichever ones you choose, I hope they work for you! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne I just bought those eye gels ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster Yay! I hope they work well for you! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Love the green tea pairing @WinglessOne! Makes me want to have a cup of green tea myself right now! ๐Ÿต In fact ... ๐Ÿ˜‰
