Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Hey ladies-

 

After starting yet another mask trying spree, it occurred to me that it might be a great idea to have one thread with our common knowledge of various masks in one place- a BT guide to masks if you'd like.  We have the swatch board for makeup, but nothing like that for skincare.

 

If you submit a mask, please include the following:

  • Name of mask
  • Type of mask (rinse-off, peel-off, etc)
  • What type of skin you have
  • Your experience with it
  • Do you recommend it? To whom?
  • And is there anything else a BTer should know?

I'll get started here in a minute...

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Perhaps it's the purging period you're going though? That really stinks! I'm always scared of trying new products at first just because of my acne-prone skin. I feel for ya!

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

It's crushing because I'm a grown adult with excellent skin (aside from my 1 or 2 hormonal zits each month, which I'm happy to welcome at this point in my life...).  I don't break out!

 

That's why this is so mystifying.  The one actually throbs!  I'm throwing everything I can think of at it to try to coax it out sooner rather than later.  If it keeps blowing up, I don't know what I'll do!

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Has it gotten any better now that it's been a couple days or still getting worse? I wish I could help more :/

D: Oh noooo! Try a sample of Peter Thomas Roth's Therapeutic Sulfur Mask on those cysts. It's been a godsend for quickly drawing out my cystic acne/deep whiteheads.

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Oh man, this is the one I was excited to try but I break out very easily and very badly, so I might steer clear...

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Name of Mask: Boscia Bright White Mask
Price/Availability: $38 at Sephora
Type: Peel-off
My skin: Severely dry with Breakouts and Acne scars

My experience: This is supposed to Brighten, hydrate, and smooth the skin. But i only does one out of the 3 for me. It does make my skin super soft, and smooth but i don't see any brightening benefits. And maybe i am a big baby but it hurts so much to peel off. I don't handle pain all that well though. 

Do you recommend? If you can handle the pain of peeling it off, Yeah.

Who should use it? Anyone wanting to smooth their skin, maybe not sensitive skin types. 

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

Ooh, interesting- you had the same experience with the white mask as I did with black!

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

I saw no different results with the black mask as well! 

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

My skin was crying after the black mask- the removal process was just brutal on it.

Re: Masks, Masks Everywhere- Share Your Experiences Here

What hurt so much?? I've never had a problem at all. It comes off in one piece and peels satisfyingly! My eyes usually water and get red pretty easily, but I've never noticed any problems with the black mask or any... fumes? I don't know?

 

It sounds like it was just a terrible experience all around for you Smiley Sad I like this mask a lot, so it's really weird.
