Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@nuinui933, I haven’t tried everything in the I’m From line but what I have tried, I’ve enjoyed. πŸ˜ƒ This was wonderfully soothing; my skin liked it. πŸ‘πŸΌ I thought the mochi was filled with some sort of mugwort paste l, which would have been a first for me, but it turns out, that the mochi has mugwort powder in it. It’s filled with red bean paste. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  This sounds wonderful for sensitive skin πŸ˜€

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Cissy63, it is! Mugwort is known for its soothing properties and the soft and thin  material do not irritate the skin. πŸ‘πŸΌ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  Well, you definitely sold me on this one! It sounds amazing! πŸ™Œ 91.45% is kinda an odd number though πŸ™ƒ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

This is a good one @Shosh85πŸŒΏπŸ’šπŸŒΏπŸ’š I think the offbeat percentage just makes it more interesting. Ha! I've come up with different theories in my head as to the reason for it - nothing to back it up other than just theories in my head. πŸ˜† A part of me thinks there must be a reason for it, but at the same time, another part of me hopes it's just something that happened to work out. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

A while back I had gotten a sample of the Lush Beauty Sleep mask with an order. I think I got a bad batch. It looks absolutely nothing like the pictures on the website. It's really dry and this is what it looks like...I like pairing it with the Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer 5 oz That stuff is amazing. If I'm ever near a Lush store I'll have to see what the mask looks like there before I ever order a full size. It smells absolutely divine though. 

 

It looks like acne all over lol. And zero of the purple mask.It looks like acne all over lol. And zero of the purple mask.Lush beauty Mask.jpg

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Samtian is it supposed to be mixed with a little of water? I've never heard of this one before

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Nope! lushusa dot com /face/masks/beauty-sleep/9999960254 dot html

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

No I would not use that product @Samtian!  Something is wrong with it.  I have to agree with you about PTR. Excellent πŸ˜€

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Samtian  Lush definitely has some nice smelling products! - too bad that was all this one had to offer πŸ˜•

Love that PTR mask - it's one of my most favorites! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Shosh85 Lush smells too good for my wallet. The Pumpkin ah HG for sure.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Yes to that PTR pumpkin enzyme mask @Samtian - love that stuff! πŸ’– That's too bad about the Lush mask. It does look very dry. I wonder if it's just gone bad - many of their masks have a very short shelf life. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi Possibly, it looked like that when I got it though. I'm trying to power through it lol. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Samtian @That’s a bummer! I always kind of forget about them as a brand ! 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Kim888 Haha I wish I could! 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Picked up this Ulta β€œfreeze” mask randomly because I was trying to get a gwp and needed a few more $$$ 

 

Spoiler
So I actually loved this and will totally buy it again. It is a two piece mask with a reasonable fit. The chin was a bit small but that happens to me for all two piece masks. It was gel like material, though not as high quality as some gel type masks. 

The mask itself smells heavily of aloe. I took it out of the fridge and it felt nicely cooling and comforting for the whole time I wore it. It was not tacky after. It wasn’t really hydrating but it was very soothing and comforting .

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Kim888 im always on the hunt for a nice soothing mask, you never know when you need one

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

I can see this in the summer @Kim888, especially after a beach day πŸ˜ƒ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Ohhh, this one has defnitely piqued my curiosity @Kim888! I'm all for a 2-piece mask - they generlaly maker for a better fit and feel in my experience. I've not seen the aloe + caffeine pairing but it sounds like it would be great. It's too bad that it wasn't as hydrating as you'd like but a soothing and comforting mask sounds like a great one to have on hand. I wonder if the hydrating effects of this particular mask would be better suited for the warmer months. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Kim888  Ooooh, I definitely need to try this one - it sounds wonderful! I bet it would be perfect for summer! β˜€οΈ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

I need to get through some of my masks so I can make room for new one!!! This one has the most amazing scent. Very sweet. Definitely melon scented. I left it on around 20 minutes. I did notice a bit of tingling because I have some problem skin from over use of acids. It claims to moisturize I think it did give some but I needed to add a bit extra. Over use of acids and shovelling snow in the freezing cold probably didn’t help my skin. The fit was ok a bit large not a deal breaker. I would definitely use again maybe better in the warmer weather!
