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’–

@itsfi  Awe, you make such a cute tiger! This one is definitely in my top favorites for CrΓ¨me Shop masks - it's for sure my most favorite of the character masks. My two other top favorite masks from the brand are 

The Creme Shop Correct Solutions Color-Correcting Orange Sheet Mask and the Collagen Mask - have you tried either of those?

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

@Shosh85, I was so bummed when the entire TCS color correcting line was discontinued. πŸ˜– Not all of the sheet masks in that line worked for me, but there were not any similar functioning sheet masks in TCS collection. I thought they could have phased out some of their other masks instead of that line and instead of their photoshopped line. πŸ˜£  Is the collagen sheet mask the one with the syringe on it? If so, I have tried it - courtesy of you - and loved it. It was one of the first collagen-centered sheet masks that I tried. 

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

@itsfi  Oh, I forgot about the Photoshopped line! I don't have any notes on the one I tried, but I remember really liking it πŸ™‚

 

Yup, the Collagen mask package has a syringe on it. I love the unique ingredients it has πŸ‘‡ πŸ˜ƒ

@Shosh85 @itsfi @@Hes, lovΓ© lovΓ© lovΓ© this mask!! I wonder if I have any left? Hmmmm. 

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

@Shosh85,that INCI list is beautiful! So many of my favorite things all wrapped in one pretty little sheet mask! πŸ’–

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

This one works for both themes - 

111 Skin Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask  

 

A big thank you to the lovely @haleyvvvv for gifting me this one! I really appreciate the opportunity to try it!

111 Skin Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask

 

Material:

Pearly-peach colored, thin-medium hydrogel

 

Serum:

Thin but not runny

 

Scent:

Like a combination of fruity and rose - I thought it was pretty pleasant

 

Fit:

Just a smidge too long at the chin. There was a bit of slippage, but that's to be expected with hydrogels.

 

Wear Time:

Half hour

 

Tack:

None

 

Results:

Super soft and smooth skin that was a little brighter and comfortably hydrated

 

Repurchase?

Hydrogels in general aren't my favorite mask material, but this is definitely one of the better ones! I loved the results and the scent was great as well. I would repurchase this one, but just wouldn't pay full retail price for them, as they are pretty spendy (around $32 a mask)

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

Glad you enjoyed it, @Shosh85!! πŸ’–

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

Fruity rose??? Yum @Shosh85 you know that will bring me in πŸ˜†

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

@lmaster  Haha! Yup, the scent was really nice on this one! πŸ‘ƒ

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

@Shosh85, the scent on this mask is ahhhhhmazing! I remember being surprised by how much I loved the fragrance on it. β™₯️🌹 The results were good as well. The fit and the price but mainly that price was what has kept me from repurchasing. I have nowhere fancy enough to go for this mask. I suppose that’s not stopped me before but … πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ 

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

@itsfi  I was super excited to be able try this one - due to the price, I never thought I would! The scent and results were definitely the best part about this one πŸ™‚

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

@Shosh85 I will be using this mask tomorrow! Thanks for sharing! It seems like it was a good experience!

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

@Mellmars1185  Just read your review! Hydrogels definitely  aren't the easiest to work with, but the results turned out nice and that's what's most important to me 😊

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

@Shosh85 I'm currently using a serum from the brands Rose Gold line so I'm curious to try this one out.  Great to hear it's a good one!

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

@missjeanie  I've always wanted to try this one, but I am just too cheap πŸ˜‚ I definitely loved the results!

How have you been liking the serum?

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

@Shosh85 I'm pretty indifferent on the serum.  It's meant to be brightening and has a bit of a pearlescent to it, but If I put a base product over it, the shimmer is completely covered.  I haven't noticed any affect on my skin otherwise, so it's not something I'd spend on again.  But... it didn't do anything bad either.  Might be more for those who don't wear foundation/tinted moisturisers?

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

@missjeanie  Good to know. I've used some products like that too.

Catching up on last week’s Hydrating Heroes theme, while watching some Winter Olympics

I was so very excited to try the fresh Floral Recovery Overnight Mask with Squalane 3.3 oz/ 100 mL. So much so, in fact, that I did not realize it is an overnight mask. Nevermind. I used it as a soothing, hydrating mask, and my skin was just fine. Given the name, besides not knowing it is an overnight mask, I expected a burst of floral springtime gardens. Instead…there was olfactory silence when I opened the jar.

The consistency is thick, and although it appears quite shiny here, it does not seem to be so much on the skin. A couple of weeks ago, I tried a mask which was similar in consistency, but varied greatly in scent.

The Fresh mask, despite other masks by the brand which I have tried (Rose, Vitamin C Nectar), was unscented. An absolute surprise and one that I was happy to discover. Even though I have yet to try this as it is intended, I am very pleased to have discovered a simply hydrating mask that delivers.

The Dr. Jart + Foot Smoothing Mask was nearing the two-year mark in my mask drawer and may have expired in the meantime. I tried it a while back, with excellent, sock-warming results. Would it still warm, despite its age? Yes, it did. I was very pleased, and knew from the first time that sitting still allowed the heat not best permeate the booties. I still ended up walking around the house, but when I did have a seat, wow, did these toast my little toes! I would absolutely buy this again if it weren’t discontinued.

The It’s Skin Hyaluronic Acid sheet mask is an old favorite of mine, I found a box of ten at my TJ Maxx a few months back and have been carefully rationing these. This was my last one. The gentle, moly essence (lightly fragranced) and easy fit and adherence made this one a frequent choice for tired evenings. 

Finally, the Bite Lavender Agave Lip Mask is a nourishing option that has been sidelined thanks to never-ending jars of Laneige. I am only working on one at the moment (the Gummy Bear version) so I am doing everything I can to finish the three FS and two DS tubes of Bite that I have ☺️

 

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

@eshoe I was also very pleased with the sample of the Fresh mask, I love rose scents, but sometimes a little goes a long way, so I'm not complaining about the lack of scent

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

@lmaster that is good to know! Overall, I think Fresh masks are a hit for me. Glad to hear this one was for you, too!

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

@eshoe. yay for finishing up a pack of 10 of the it's skin masks. Is it one you would repurchase?
