Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you @Shosh85! ๐Ÿค— Bio-cellulose masks have been nice after a peel or when my skin is irritated.

The Oozoo Fresh Capsule Royal Jelly Mask

This mask has a capsule of serum on the front of the package, that you are supposed to firmly press, releasing it into the pouch. After bursting the capsule, you are to massage the pouch, ensuring it all gets distributed evenly. This cotton sheet mask is soaked with serum that has a light, sweet honey type of smell. The mask  fit well and was just a little too long at the chin. It was comfy to wear and had good adherence, just the extra length at the chin popped up a couple times. I had it on for about 40 minutes. When I removed it the little bit of serum that was left was a little tacky, but it all absorbed pretty quickly. My complexion looked clearer and brighter, my skin felt smooth and hydrated and had a very nice glow.


This one never gets old. I will probably always continue to repurchase! I was so happy to find it at TJ Maxx!

@Shosh85 I will be using mine soon thanks to you ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hard agree on the whole "this one never gets old," @Shosh85. It's good, reliable staple!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork  Glad to hear you feel the same way! It's definitely a love for me! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿฏ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

"This one never gets old. I will probably always continue to repurchase!" 100% agree @Shosh85! This sheet mask is fantastic! So good! Love this honey version! If they packaged the serum and sold it separately, I would definitely pick it up! ๐Ÿฏ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Oooh, yes, I'd definitely buy a bottle of that serum too! Both this and the Rose one are great, but honey takes first place for me! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

And again, 100% agree with you @Shosh85! The honey mask is oh, so good!! ๐Ÿฏ The rose mask is a nice one as well but my heart belongs to the honey! ๐Ÿ’–

I can't believe I've never tried this one before!!! I love the scent it's fruity peachy goodness, white sheet that fit as good as most do. A bit of extra serum I used on my neck and hands. No lasting tackiness, wear time was 20 minutes, maybe a bit longer,, I'm really impressed with this one, the fusion of the brightness of my skin and the hydrating and Moisturizing and calming is a perfect match! I definitely will want more of these 5โญ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

The fusion line is possibly my favorite line from The Creme Shop and this peach one, the coffee one and the ones @Shosh85 mentioned, the blueberry and raspberry ones, are among the ones I  repurchase from the brand. Happy to hear this was a love for you @lmaster. It smells so good!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi it smelled amazing,, im going to need more from the fusion line ๐Ÿ™Œ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, definitely! They're so good! I'm excited for you to try the others and very interested to hear how you like them!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Mmmm, that Caffe Mocha one smells delicious! โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‹ @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 @lmaster, it does make me wonder whether I would love these fusion masks so much if they didn't smell so good! ๐Ÿค”

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  A good scent is definitely the cherry on top for me!

@lmaster 

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

U = ubiquinone, aka coenzyme Q10. Last night I used another blind selection from my one-offs bin: Yerma Q10 Collagen Essence Mask. 

 

I think this is the first and only Yerma mask I've ever used.I think this is the first and only Yerma mask I've ever used.

Notes: 

Spoiler

Claims: Nourishes skin and improves elasticity; reduces fine lines and wrinkles. 

 

Ingredients: Iโ€™ve said a few times that I love fairly short ingredients lists, as long as they contain beneficial ingredients with no bad-for-me stuff. Of these 17 ingredients, the only iffy one for me is fragrance. Q10 is good, of course; collagen is still in the โ€œIโ€™ll believe itโ€™s effective [applied topically to skin] when more dermatologists and scientists prove itโ€ category for me. More important to me than both those ingredients are soothers aloe and purslane (portulaca oleracea), plus good olโ€™ panthenol and vitamin E. Thereโ€™s also lots of vitamin E in purslane, which is also a great source of vitamins C and A, plus omega-3 fatty acids. Itโ€™s one of my favorite skincare ingredients. 

Spoiler
Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Panthenol, Polysorbate 80, Beta-Glucan, Tocopheryl Acetate, Hydrolyzed Collagen (0.126%), 1,2- Hexanediol, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Ubiquinone (0.01%), Fragrance 

Performance: This medium-thick cotton sheet had eye flaps that I snipped off. Otherwise, it fit me perfectly: big enough eye and mouth holes, great length and stretchable width, perfect philtrum (so many masks are too short or tall in this little space between nose and lip), and the nose had slits down the center (but not all the way to the tip) to help the sheet get full skin contact. The sheet was a fairly soft and nicely cooling experience. 

 

There was about a handful of thin milky runny serum in the sleeve. It had a floral scent, and Iโ€™m still trying to figure out what flower(s) it reminds me of. It kinda smelled like there was also a bit of tang in the fragrance, probably a citrus note. The fruit fly who kept trying to interfere with last nightโ€™s dinner decided to investigate this mask a couple times during the 30 minutes I wore it. By then, the sheet had given up nearly all it had. It took just a couple minutes to massage residual serum into my skin. I had no pilling and mild tack. 

 

Results: Moderately hydrated, slightly more radiant, and cooled down skin. My face felt very nice, even if it wasnโ€™t plump with hydration. Some of my redness was reduced, and my skin felt calmer. Iโ€™m sure aloeโ€™s to thank for that. With repeated use over time, this mask might indeed reduce the appearance of fine lines thanks to Q10. But I got no immediate results in that category, which I honestly didn't expect anyway. 

 

I think this is the first Yerma mask Iโ€™ve ever used, though Iโ€™ve had it for months. It makes me kinda curious about the other masks in this Collagen Essence line... maybe curious enough to find out what's in them. I assume they share a base set of ingredients including hydrolyzed collagenโ€”and that ingredient's not enough to entice me to buy more masks. This Q10 mask was nice but didn't outperform other aloe masks I already have. And that's primarily what this is: an aloe mask that also contains ubiquinone. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ahhh, ubiquinone @WinglessOne! I remember when I first learned it was another name for coQ-10. It was a relief as I first wondered if it was some derivative of hydroquinone. It came in handy to for one of the previous "U" week challenges as well. Do you like this mask enough to try other varieties in the line?
