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.

@PrettyPaint  Loving the name!!!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@ather  The name cracked me up for sure! ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Final masking for last week, a Wonder and a Dud:


Ice globes are the tools I didnโ€™t know I needed until @sprocketta surprised me with these. I keep them in the fridge rather than the freezer (which I am almost certain I would forget to remove after 10 minutes), and use them primarily under my eyes and on my closed lids. They are so incredibly soothing, and give my skin relief from lack of sleep. The most amusing thing is that the ingredients include Water, HA, peppermint, panthenol, and citric acid. Now, I am trying to wrap my head around how these are necessary/beneficial given that glass is non-porous ๐Ÿค” Whatever the reason, I love them and am very grateful to sprocketta for thinking of me! 

The BlingPop Cucumber Face Mask Hydrating and Brightening is the second Iโ€™ve tried from this brand. The lemon ๐Ÿ‹ was higher rated but carried a scent leaning toward cleaner and did not adhere well. This was much different. A light cucumber mint scent greeted me, with an easy fit and a generous amount of watery serum. I left it on around 25 minutes and removed to find pleasantly plumped skin. Iโ€™m glad I have a backup, this was a good mask that I will happily repeat!

Finally, the fail of the evening for me was the Innisfree Green Tea Capsule Recipe Pack. It is an overnight mask, with the typical fresh/clean scent and water-cream texture. I didnโ€™t mind it, but wasnโ€™t wowโ€™ed by it until I woke up with little white blemishes covering my face๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ At least the Volcano mask was a hit ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks for sharing about the ice globes!! @eshoe sorry the innisfree was a mishap ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

You win some, you lose some, right @lmaster? There are minor battles;) Tje globes are wonderful and will last, most importantly๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I'm glad you like them so much! It definitely took some searching and thought to come up with any skincare item you don't already have. I think it's hilarious that they're "infused" with anything.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

They are so fun to use, @sprocketta! I love that they are glass, so they wonโ€™t pick up on any vegetable scents while in the fridge;) Love them, they are going to be GREAT in the summertime ๐Ÿ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Oooo I was wondering about those ice globes! Now I might need to get some!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

They are really nice, @ather! Mine have little โ€˜handlesโ€™ which I guess helps the water inside remain cold. Makes them easy to handle, too. I love mine, canโ€™t thank @sprocketta enough for thinking of me:)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  That cucumber mask is really adorable. Love the packaging. That's too bad about the innisfree. I think I may actually have that laying around somewhere. I wonder what ingredient caused the blemishes?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, is your skin sensitive to silicones? That Innisfree masks seems to have quite a few silicones in it and I wonder if it's too much for your skin alone or in combination with the other mask or skincare products in your routine. @PrettyPaint 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi thatโ€™s an interesting observation ๐Ÿค” I use an SPF loaded with silicones (Dermstore Daily Mineral Sunscreen), but only on my forehead. Since the white bumps covered mostly cover my cheek area, that would make sense!


eta: also, a sleeping mask like this is likely to be on my skin longer than my spf, which might be the cause for the breakout - the silicones stopped up my pores for too long.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint Iโ€™m not sure yet, my skin isnโ€™t sensitive but I noticed all day today itโ€™s been redder than normal with a noticeable dark patch on one cheek. Hoping it goes away by morning, at least:)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Oh yikes. I'm just now catching up on posts, but I hope your skin is fully recovered now.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Much better, @PrettyPaint - spent the day in the pines and I think it was just what my skin needed:)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Totally thought that was gonna be a pickle mask @eshoe ! lol, glad it wasn't!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Hey I could go for a pickle mask, @missjeanie! If I end up with a mask maker, Iโ€™m going to try it just for the fun of it. In the meantime, I guess I could use pickle slices instead of cucumbers for soothing my lids?




Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I totally expect a pickle juice mask to the first one you test out!  lol I'm sure there's a study somewhere advocating for it... pretty much just vinegar and cucumbers no?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Add some pickling spices and youโ€™re set, @missjeanie! Somehow I donโ€™t think the scent would be soothing though;)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Oh, the rollers sound so refreshing! I bet it's even better in the summertime!


So sorry to hear your skin didn't like the Innisfree mask! That's never a fun a surprise! ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes the rollers can seem extra chilly right now, I am so excited to try them in the summer months @Shosh85! And another positive about the innisfree at least it was just a one/two use pod๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
