@heartsmyface haha thank you. It was already cold brr

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

On my way home today, I noticed there’s an It’s Skin shop in Flushing! I don’t know how I missed it all these years...but now I need recommendations for sheet masks from them and know you beauties can help me! I have combo oily skin and tend to prefer cleaner ingredients. 😁

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

@lnum jealous that you have an entire EH store! The .2mm Air ones @itsfi is referring to are some of my favorite daily masks. Inexpensive, fit is lovely, and make my skin happy. Have fun shopping!!!

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

The main thing is that you've know about the storefront now @lnum😍 

 

Hmmm . . . not sure how much help this will be because our skin types are different, though I do get more oily in the summer. Sheet masks from It's Skin that I enjoy are primarily within the brand's Prestige line - one is the ginseng sheet mask (red packet) - note that it does contain snail mucin; another from that line is the black rose mask, but that is heavily fragranced so if you're sensitive to scents you might want to pass on that one. There's also a two step or two part mask pack - snail centered - includes under eye gel patches and a sheet mask. 

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

@itsfi Yes! The red ginseng one absolutely caught my eye. I’ll pick it up if I see it. I also think there’s an Etude House nearby there that I discovered yesterday and I don’t think I’ve tried anything from them. I clearly need to look up when I’m taking the bus instead of being glued to my phone. πŸ˜…

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

Hahaha @lnum! I can understand being glued to the phone! πŸ˜‚  Ooooh, an Etude House storefront?!!! How fun!! 

 

  • 0.2mm Air Therapy Sheet Mask collection - there are 4 (maybe 4?) different types of essences / serums in this collection. I love how thin and soft the masks are! πŸ˜ Some of the "flavors" contain alcohol but I'm not sure if that might be due to the type of essence. I have a handful at home and can take a look for you when I get back.

 

  • Soon Jung Panthensoside Sheet Mask - the packet is white and the writing on the mask is in blue and black. It's made of 100% bamboo and is good for sensitive and/or damaged skin.

 

  • Red Ginseng gold hydrogel mask - I don't know the full name of it. It's in a pretty metallic packaging with a ginseng (?) print on it. It may be discontinued or on its way out, but I remember seeing it in a few boutiques right before the stay-at-home. I don't think it's part of a skincare collection so it might be displayed on its own.

 

  • Moistfull Collagen Mask - this may not be something your skin likes - it's intended to be moisturizing and plumping; it may be too heavy for your skin type.

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

@itsfi Thank you!!! I took screenshots lol! I went to its skin today and strangely they closed at 5:30pm on a Saturday so I was 20 minutes too late. I’ll have to try visiting both again next week. 

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

@lnum, there are 5 different essence types within the 0.2mm Air Therapy sheet mask collection. I don't have all of the 'flavors' but of the ones I have, I do have at least one of each of the essence types. 

 

  • moist water type - Green Tea (moisturizing & soothing)
  • ampoule type - White Flowers (moisturizing & brightening)
  • emulsion type - Honey (rich moisturization) and Snail (smoothening & firming)
  • jelly oil type - Camellia (lifting & skin radiance)
  • cream oil - Olive (firming & moisturizing)

 

Here's how to tell what type of essence is contained in the sheet mask:

Have fun shopping next week! πŸ›

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

@lnum   If they have them, they make the best makeup remover wipes!  All oily and wonderful...sigh.  

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

MΓ©diheal you’ve done it again:). N is for Nattogum.  Nattogum is (fermented soybeans boiled in natto ) high in vitamin K2 which has been shown to prevent fine lines and Gamma Polyglutamic Acid (PGA) which finishes wrinkles, facilitates skin turnover and is skin smoothing.  This Tencel sheet mask is soaked in sticky milky serum which smells strongly of roses (wasn’t expecting that) The mask fits well but I added a few snips around the eye-nose area to make it perfect.  The sticky serum really makes it stay well.  My skin was extremely tacky (okay sticky) afterward for about fifteen minutes.  Then it was plump moisturized and had a firm bounce to it . I am very pleased.  off to go see if this is still available.

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

@heartsmyface   Oh, this one gave some great results! Happy to hear you enjoyed it! πŸ˜ƒ

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

@heartsmyface I had to look up natty to see if it was short for annatto, but nope - something new! This one sounds beautiful ❀️

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

@heartsmyface nice!! The packaging is visually appealing and looks like it fits wonderfully!! Results too... πŸ˜ŠπŸ™Œ

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

This one sounds really nice, @heartsmyface! You're right, so many Mediheals really hit the spot. I picked up the pro-jelly from the Meience line a little bit ago and can't wait to try it. 

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

I need this mask @heartsmyface! Making a note now. This one sounds fabulous! 😍 There are very few Mediheal sheet masks that have been fails for me. I have a natto sheet mask set aside for later this week; hoping it will give similar results. πŸ€ž

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

@itsfi  yeah you do!  I’ll put my seal of approval on it;).
ouhhh, I hope so!   i can’t wait to hear if yours is equally as sticky!  It delivered and settled down on its own so I really don’t mind.  

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

Exactly @heartsmyface! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ I actually made a note off to the side that says β€œhearts approved”. β™₯️ Good to know stickiness should be expected  - that does make sense with natto being a key ingredient. I’ll be sure to use the natto one in the evening, when I have more time to wait for the sticky to settle down. 

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

Well dang if this doesn't sound delightful @heartsmyface !  Glad you found a winner!

 

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

@missjeanie   It was!  I was half expecting it to smell gross based off the photo but it wasn’t at all.     

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

@heartsmyface  That looks like a great one! I had not heard of nattogum before. The results sound really nice, and I love a mask that stays put. 

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

@PrettyPaint   I didnt think we’d had it either cause I thought I would remember something looking like that photo, but according to D, we have it all the time in our miso soup and with kimchi.  πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ
