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.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah @Shosh85, for $50 a pop, it needs to firm, tighten, lift, clear, nourish and make my face look airbrushed, and all that without having to rinse off the serum. At the very least. And that's before we even get to the dinner criteria @missjeanie talked about - oh, that had better be some dinner, too! ๐Ÿ˜‚

B is for B12

The Creme Shop B12 Complex Face Mask

This is a medium thickness cotton sheet mask that was saturated with serum and had a fresh & clean/floral kind of scent. It had a typical Creme Shop fit - too long, too wide and the space between the eyes was too wide. This one also had eye flaps. Despite the big fit it adhered well and was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. There wasn't any tackiness after removing. My face felt soft and smooth and maybe just lightly hydrated, but that's about it.

This one was pretty unimpressive and I wouldn't repurchase.

@Shosh85

Me before reading your review on this one: "hmmm, I don't think I have this one." ๐Ÿค”

Me after reading your review on this one: "yeah, I won't need to pick up this one." 

This sounds like it might have been fine, maybe even a good mask, if you haven't been using sheet masks for a while. ๐Ÿ˜† The shosh85 seal of approval (or lack thereof) makes for an excellent roadmap when it comes to my future sheet mask purchases! ๐Ÿค— Looks like I'll just stick to my supplements to get in my B12. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Haha! Yeah, I've definitely gotten more picky about masks!  I wouldn't say this one was bad at all, it just really didn't seem to do much of anything. Kinda felt like a wasted a half hour. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Well.. you just saved me 10$ @Shosh85 .  Lol... every now and again I look at TCS masks again and think that I have enough of them already, but then other times I'm on a "gotta try em all" race.  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  I totally know what you mean! The Creme Shop masks are so hit-and-miss and yet I just can't keep myself from buying them. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ฌ 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888  This was really a neat theme this week. Thanks so much for thinking of it! 

 

I didn't have to search in my stash too much, but I felt this one fit the artistic theme nicely.

 

NOHJ 24K Gold Mask - Peptide.

 

I used this earlier in the week, so I unfortunately can't remember all of the details. I believe there was a bit of a floral smell, but nothing too terrible. The actual mask was lovely, and it seemed hydrating. While wearing it, I felt like my skin felt the tiniest bit itchy (it could be from the lavender or lemon extract), but honestly it could just be my skin. If I'm feeling anxious, my skin tends to freak out in general. That being said, I would have liked to have kept it on longer, but I removed it a bit sooner than usual just in case.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

So pretty, @PrettyPaint - it's a shame it caused a little itchiness. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Yes - so fancy! I am prone to itchiness, so I imagine most people would be totally ok. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint @Thats disappointing to hear! I do have this in my collection so Iโ€™ll be sure to be pay extra attention when I try it !!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888  I wouldn't be too worried about it, but I'll be curious to hear your thoughts. My skin is extra sensitive this time of year and when I'm stressed, so I anticipate you'll be totally fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Oooh, this one's so fancy! I'm happy it turned nice despite the itchiness! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks so much @Shosh85. It was a nice treat.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thats one classy looking mask @PrettyPaint !

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Haha! I know. I felt like I should be going out somewhere afterwards. In reality I just stayed home in yoga pants.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint What a gorgeous mask!   I'm glad to hear it was hydrating. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@tjffc  Thanks so much! I always get excited when a mask has a print. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Now, that is an artistic mask @PrettyPaint! Gorgeous!! ๐Ÿ˜ Sorry it gave your skin the itchies. Hopefully no other adverse effects from it. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I was glad I was able to find it in my nearby stash for the week! ๐Ÿ™‚  My skin is doing fine currently, so no negative reactions. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

B for Black

This came from a MOTM box & I love Erno so I was really looking forward to it & have been looking for it at the TJ/M I visit

 

Fit? Its a 2 part,slippery mask that sandwiched between layers. If you are a frequent masker, its no trouble-you are pretty used it it by now. Some of the reviews however must not be frequent maskers. They knocked off stars for this ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜’

 

Smell? It was just last night. And I don't remember. ๐Ÿ˜‚ it was pleasant enough

 

Consistency? The mask itself is black. The serum is on the thicker side, almost gel like. It as net like texture on one side, i guess to hold the serum better

 

Ease of use?no issues. I think i left this on about 40 min..i couldve went longer. I did have some pilling on my neck but the everything soaked in eventually with very little tack

 

Would I  purchase/try again? I did have some tingling, not unpleasant but noticeable. {From past experiences I take note & pay attention in case it gets worse. It didn't & actually went away. My pores did look smaller after removing. I think will continue to look for it as a set in a box at a TJ or M.  @@ a deal, in other words would make me pick this mask up. I don't think I would pay full price for 1 mask. You can get the same immediate results with a much cheaper mask. Can't say whether or not long term results. I did like it though. Thank you to whoever put it in. ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค
