Sheet Masks I Used – Week Two August 2018

Sheet Masks I used week two of August 2018

I saw drastic improvements in my skin in week one of August. If you missed it, make sure you check out what sheet mask I used in week one of August. I started week two off with very minimalistic patches of textured skin and dry spots. And I have some of the leftovers of a allergic reaction around the parameters of my face where a sheet mask will never touch. Over all it is not a bad place to be starting week two from.

Sheet Masks I used week two of August 2018

I tried to switch it up a bit more this week. I used a lot from my favorite brand last week, so I decided not to use it at all this week and I tried to put a little more variety of types of sheet masks I used. I have also slowly been working on doing some daytime skin care this week. I won’t be sharing that here in this post, but you may see a couple of things I tried pop up as review posts.

Just like last week I will be linking each one to the cheapest place I can find to purchase, and if they are priced the same at multiple places I will choose the one I think is most convenient for the majority of people. So let’s take a look at what I used in week two.

Day 8

Lady

On day eight I used the Acai Berry Lifting Ice Cold Mask from Ladykin. This mask is not currently in stock, but I have linked to the page so when it comes in stock you can get it. This particular mask is great for its anti-aging properties. It is a type of cellulose mask, but it feels like a very thin hydrogel mask.

I personally love how this feels, but I hate trying to apply this type of cellulose mask. Its like trying to use cling wrap. Its constantly sticking to its self, and applying it quickly and easily is something I apparently lack the skill for.

 

Day 9

For day nine I used the Real Solution Tencel Sheet Mask in Ceramide from Missha. This mask is both hydrating and very soothing for sensitive skin. I actually think this mask feels colder on the face than the previous days mask which is called the Ice Cold Mask.

My only complaint for this mask is the fit isn’t the best for me. I shared a side view of me wearing this one so you can hopefully see the patch on the side of my jaw that just is not covered.

 

Day 10

On day ten I tried another new to me mask. This is the 3 Step WITHBEE Honey Bomb Mask from Wonjin Effect. Honey is obviously one of those ingredients that is very moisturizing. It is also antibacterial and good if you have issues with acne. I am not typically acne prone,  but I do enjoy the occasional honey mask.

This one in particular had a really great smell, like clover honey. I actually really enjoyed the milk cleanser that came with it, I may even look into purchasing some in the future if I can find it. And these three step kits are really handy for travel, so I would definitely purchase this mask again for that alone if for nothing else.

 

Day 11

The mask I used on day eleven is Mediheal’s Cacao Ade Sheet Mask. I couldn’t find this mask listed anywhere that I trust, so I didn’t link it. As I have mentioned before, there are a lot of Korean sheet mask out there that are seasonal, so you can only find them for a limited time each year. So if it is something that you want or need in your skincare routine year round, you should stock up for the year. Don’t stock up too far ahead though, because they can eventually go bad.

This particular mask is on the favorite list for me. Actually I really love this brand, and I especially love this particular line of masks from them. This one would make my top ten sheet masks. It not only does great things for my skin, but it also really smells like chocolate, so its great for giving you that spa like experience at home.

 

Day 12

The mask for day twelve was the Stayed Up Late Mask in Emily from Tsaio. This is unfortunately out of stock everywhere so I have linked it to the page and you can hopefully get it when it comes back in stock if you are interested.

This mask is used for brightening the skin and firming. Obviously it is black mask. Black masks are quite popular. Honestly they don’t do anything special for me. I mean they aren’t bad, but I haven’t found one that I thought was amazing either.

 

Day 13

Day thirteen had me bringing out the Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Mask from Annie’s Way. This is a super thin mask. Probably the thinnest one I have tried so far. It fit my face really well, but because of how thin it was and the fact that it was clinging to itself it took forever to put on.

I don’t really have a bunch of wrinkles to speak of, so I don’t know if it does anything in the immediate. However I think it can’t hurt to use it as a preventative.

 

Day 14

For the fourteenth day of August and the last day week two I decided to pull out a hydrogel mask. I decided to go with the After Shower Look Face Mask from Faith In Face.

I had purchased this in a three pack a while back and only used one of them prior to this. It does okay things for my skin, but I honestly am not a fan of this one. It has a highly perfumed smell. It hasn’t caused a reaction from my contact allergy, but I really find the smell offensive.

 

And with that we have finished the second week of August, or at least the 14th day. Tell me in the comments about some of the sheet masks you have tried recently. Do you have a suggestion for one you think I should try or one you would like to see reviewed?

Week Two Of My Sheet Mask Challenge #newyearnewskin

New Year New Skin Challenge

For those of you following along with the sheet mask challenge this is the summary of the masks I used for week two. If you are brand new to the blog or just now checking out the challenge you can still catch up by checking out what I used for Week One Of My Sheet Mask Challenge.

Day 8

Etude house hydrogel mask

This is the Etude House Skin Note Calming Face Hydrogel Mask – Aloe Glacial Water. I am sorry to say this is the first Hydrogel mask I have ever used that I did not like. It was highly fragranced, unlike anything I have ever used in Korean brands. And the gel was not very moist. It dries out quickly. These sell for $3.50 at regular price.

 

Day 9

Missha Real Solution Sheet Mask

This is the Missha Real Solution Tencel Sheet Mask – Ceramide (Soothing). This was the first time I used this mask. I loved the cooling soothing feeling of this formula, but I was a little surprised at how messy and hard to deal with the actual mask was. That is unusual for a Tencel mask. But it was still a great mask and I will buy this one again. These sell for $3.25 at regular price.

 

Day 10

FoodAholic Cucumber Essence Sheet Mask

This is the FoodAholic Cucumber Natural Essence Mask. It is currently sold out at all the places I would feel comfortable referring you to buy from, but I am sure they will be back in stock soon at most places that carry this brand. I have used this mask before. They are a 3D mask. I don’t actually like the 3D mask, but I like the formula of the essence and haven’t found a suitable replacement. If you are unfamiliar with 3D masks, instead of being flat and you shaping it to your face they come pre-shaped like a face sort of. They don’t work so well for me as most are made for very small faces. But I can tear them a bit and make them work. When these are in stock they sell for $1.99 regular price.

Day 11

F+C Skin RX Facial Firming Mask

This is the Saference F+C Skin-RX Facial Firming Mask. This was another new one I tried. I could feel some sort of effect from it. There was slight tingling feeling. Not unpleasant, but I am not entirely sure I really saw any difference in my skin. But this was the hardest mask ever to unfold. I spent a minimum of three minutes trying to figure it out. I would consider giving this one another try, but I don’t think this would ever become a favorite. These sell for $2.39 at regular price.

 

Day 12

Beauty Concepts Pedi Patrol Repairing Foot Mask

This is the Beauty Concepts Pedi Patrol Repairing Foot Mask SPA Sock. This comes in a three pack. I had already used two of the pairs, and honestly I just wanted to use these up and clear out space. I am not a fan of these. I have tried other brands that do a much better job. These do make my feet feel a little softer for a day or two, but that is about it. I probably won’t buy these again. These sell for $16.99 a box at regular price.

 

Day 13

esfolio Black Caviar Hydrogel Eye Patches

This is the Esfolio – Black Caviar Hydrogel Eye Patches. They are cooling and have a slight brightening effect to the eye area. You get thirty pairs of these in a container, and the black caviar variety is just one option you can choose. I am not sure how many types esfolio makes, but there are two other options on Beauteques website. These sell for $14.99 at regular price.

 

Day 14

LadyKin Ice Cold Mask

This is the Ladykin Lifting Ice Cold Mask – Acai Berry. One final new to me mask for the week. Wow, I really tried a lot of new masks this week. Anyway, this is a cellulose mask. They are very similar to hydrogel mask in looks and feel. But there is enough difference that you can definitely tell the difference. This mask itself was very cooling and refreshing. I will definitely buy this again. This sells for $4.99 at regular price.

 

Tell me in the comments below if you have tried any of these masks before and what you think. Also make sure to let me know if you are also taking the mask challenge.
