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’–

Ah, sorry that I forgot to mention that @itsfi. It is a translucent baby blue that changes into white bubbling foam once it has been applied.

R is for root vegetables, with this particular masking sesh focused on carrots, Bugs Bunny's favorite snack. 
Ingredient focus: carrotsIngredient focus: carrots

 

Sheet Mask:

Spoiler
A while back, when my sheet mask no-buy was briefly lifted, I saw what looks like a new line of Innisfree sheet masks.  At the very least, they are new to me. 

All the sheet masks in this Innisfree Jeju Root Energy collection are made of a thin, soft, biodegradable material that adheres very well to the skin. Fit on this Innisfree Jeju Root Energy Mask (Carrot) surprised me in that it fit quite nicely and with minimal adjustment. It's a smidge too wide at the temples for me and maybe an 1/2" too long at the chin and jawline. The slight extra amount of fabric at temples wasn't enough to make it worth it to snip off, but I did cut away the extra length and made some incisions to the corners of the openings for the eyes do the material could lay flat against my face. 

There are different types of essences in this line; this carrot varietal contains a thin, watery essence that has clean, fresh scent that reminds me of leaves from a plant with maybe hints of a floral fragrance. Hard to know which of the listed ingredient(s), including added fragrance, is giving this mask its fragrance. 

The mask was dripping in it when I pulled it out of the packet but there was no dripping once I applied the mask to my face, nor did I experience any dripping during the half hour I had it on. After removing the mask, my skin had that dewy glow that is common after using a sheet mask. The essence that remained was quickly absorbed, leaving zero trace of tack or stickiness. My skin felt soft and more hydrated and my complexion looked visibly refreshed, clear and brighter. 

I agree with the mask's claim to brighten the complexion - that it does. As for its moisturizing claims, my skin felt slightly moisturized but I would couch the results as more hydrating than moisturizing. Still, a very good mask and one I would happily use, and repurchase, again. In fact, I plan to pick up a few of the other masks from this collection as well. 

Hair Mask:

Spoiler
The Eco Love Hair Mask For Normal to Dry Hair is alright. It performs well enough, leaving my hair soft, smooth and moisturized, but the scent is very strong. Very. strong. While I like the results from this mask, they are ones I can get from other less potent scented hair masks. I'll finish with this tub but will not repurchase.

 

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

@itsfi The carrot innisfree sounds just perfect for this time of year! 

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

It's a good first intro to this new sheet mask line from the brand @PrettyPaint! So far so good. πŸ₯• Hoping the other couple of masks I have from them work just as well. πŸ€ž

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

@itsfi  The Innisfree mask sounds nice! I bought the whole line but still have yet to try any of them. I wonder if they'll be similar to the Farmskin Salad ones πŸ€”

 

Ugh. Sorry about the strong scent on the hair mask! Definitely sounds like a mask I should avoid 😬

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

@Shosh85, please take my word for it and steer clear of this hair mask; your nose will not appreciate the fragrance. It's too bad because it did perform nicely. I will be focusing on using this tub up as soon as possible. I wonder if I can dilute the potency of the scent by mixing it with another hair mask??? Hmmm πŸ€”

 

Oooh, the whole line? Fun!! I have 2 other ones. I'm excited to hear your take on this line and compare notes over the ones we both have! 

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

@itsfi the innisfree sounds very refreshing 🧊 I like your tie-in to the theme; very creative! 

 

The hair mask, not so much. You didn’t mention the exact notes of the scent...Since it wasn’t pleasant I am thinking lotion-yπŸ€”

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

@eshoe, oops, sorry about that. Went to grab the tub to give it a good whiff. It smells heavily perfumed, maybe every so slightly powdery but very much just a cloud of perfume. It actually made my eyes water a bit this time when I went to smell it. That's not happened before when it's been used. 

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

Ooof @itsfi, powdery is a big β€˜no’ for me. I recently finished a DS of the Christophe Robin Regenerating Hair Mask with Prickly Pear Seed Oil 8.33 oz/ 246 mL and found the scent very off-putting. A hair mask needs to be pleasantly-scented!

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

@eshoe, a case of every nose has its preferences - I like the scent on that CR prickly pear hair mask, but I know that it is not for everyone. Finishing it means you don't have to smell it anymore. That's how I look at what I have left of the Evo Love hair mask - just gotta work my way through it. πŸ˜† 

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

This one works for both themes - a cute Rainbow mask πŸ˜‰

The Creme Shop Rainbow Mask

This is a medium thickness cotton sheet mask that was white with cute colored hearts all over it. 😍🌈 It has a yummy and refreshing fruity scent, that to me, smelled like a mix of blueberry and cranberry. The fit was better than your average Creme Shop mask - just a little too long at the chin. The adherence was ok for the 30 minutes I had it on, but the chin part did pop up half way through and did not want to go back down. When I removed it, my skin felt a little tacky, but absorbed after about 5 minutes. My face looked a little brighter and felt slightly plump, hydrated and soft & smooth.

 

This is a great mask! I'd definitely buy more if I spotted them at Marshall's/TJ Maxx again!

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

@Shosh85 I scored some of those a while back. I haven't tried it yet but my mom loved hers. I hope I can smell it when I get to use it. 

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

@Samtian  Oh, I hope you'll be able to smell it too! It's such a pleasant fruity scent. Glad to hear your mom enjoyed it! πŸŒˆπŸ˜ƒ

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

The scent on this one sounds delicious, @Shosh85πŸ˜‹I am already planning out my TJ Maxx trip in July, I will be on the lookout!

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

@eshoe  Not much to dislike about this one! It's one of the very few Creme Shop masks I'd repurchase πŸ˜‰πŸŒˆπŸ«

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

This is such a cute mask @Shosh85!! β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ I have one you sent me and will give it a go later this week. I'm finding that I may need to be a little creative with the masks in my stash and "R" week! But I have some masks lined up for the cute mask - such a fun theme you came up with! πŸ˜

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

@itsfi  This is definitely in my top favorites from the brand and the cute hearts are a nice bonus! I hope you enjoy it too! πŸ˜ƒπŸŒˆ

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

That's good to know @Shosh85😍  Some of the newer masks from The Creme Shop (well, some of the older masks from them as well) are just 'meh' so I'm always happy to hear when there's one that performs well. That it's one of your favorites from them says a lot to me about it. 

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

R is for Rose

IMG_20210425_210913669.jpg

  • Can't recall where this beauty came from, but thank you to whomever sent it to me 🀦 
  • This was a very saturated thin sheet that had a little extra serum in the package
  • It fit really well over all areas of my face
  • The scent was fabulous!! I love rose, but some rose scents are too strong for my skincare,, this one was light and true to a fresh rose scent
  • Wear time was 15 minutes
  • Results were typical, nice hydration, moisturizing but not too much more
  • No lasting tackiness
  • The scent alone would raise this mask above filler level for me

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

@lmaster I have tried a couple from this line, and they are definitely good filler masks! 

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

@eshoe yes absolutely!! The scent just pushed it a little better for me πŸ˜‰
