The Sheet Masks I Used This Month October 2018

Sheet masks used in October 218

After my big push to get back on a good skin care routine in August, I am now on a more stable and manageable routine. In August I used a sheet mask every day and blogged about it. But now I am doing something close to every other day, but I know there will be some times when that doesn’t happen. My goal is to use between 12 to 15 masks a month, but I want to be flexible with that.

If you want to find out what I used in August, there were four separate post. Check out week one, week two, week three, and week four(really more than a week).

This post is going to be a little different from most of sheet mask posts, and it will most likely be like this from now on for these recap posts. I am posting only pictures of the packaging here with links to where you can purchase them and price. If you want to see each one being worn by me and my commentary on the masks, you can find that on my Instagram and Facebook page.

We will be looking at three masks at a time. Lets get started.

sheet masks from SOOAE, Burt's Bees, and Skin79

1. Freeset Donkey Milk Skin Gel Mask Pack Healing (it says Freeset on the link which I think is the parent company, but this is from SOO AE). On Amazon you get 10 of these for $30.00 with free prime shipping. You can also occasionally get these on Hautelook or in various subscription boxes.

2. Burt’s Bees Purifying Sheet Mask With Kiwi Extract. I bought mine in store at Meijer for $2.99 each. You can also purchase these on Burt’s Bees website and other stores that carry Burt’s Bees products. They are also available on Amazon’s website as an add on item.

3. SKIN79 Rice Bubble Cleansing Mask. On Amazon you can get 5 for $19.99. You can also occasionally get these on Hautelook and YesStyle, but neither place consistently has them.

 

 

4. Innisfree Strawberry It’s Real Squeeze Mask. On Amazon you can get a 10 pack for just $7.50. You can also find this one on Beauteque and YesStyle, but on YesStyle it is only available in a multi-pack.

5. Elizavecca 24K Gold Water Dual Snail Mask Pack. On YesStyle you can get a 10 pack for $17.90. You can also find this mask on Amazon.

6. A mask from Hello Skin. The rest of the packaging, outside of the brand name is in Korean. I tried to track this down, but no luck, so I can’t link to it. If anyone recognizes it could you leave the name in the comments.

 

 

7. Holika Holika Green Tea Real Hydrogel Mask. Find this one on YesStyle for $5.90 for a single mask. There are a couple of other versions available when in stock.  I have not seen this mask anywhere else that I shop.

8. Skinfood Black Bean Beauty In Food Mask – On Amazon you can fins a 10 pack for  masks with free prime shipping.

9. 7 Days Natural Pomegranate Sheet Mask. On Amazon you can get a 7 pack with a package of facial wipes for $15.19 and free prime shipping. You also have the option of getting it in a multipack with all the other varieties.

 

 

10. Esfolio Pure Skin Snail Essence Sheet Mask. On YesStyle you can get a 1 pack for $12.90. This mask tends to pop up on various sites at different times, but I do not currently see it available at any of the other places I buy masks.

11. A hydrogel mask from Mediental. This is another mask that is completely in Korean, so I can’t tell you much beyond the brand name. I do know that it is 6 free, I can recognize the symbols for that. If you have chemical sensitivities then these are usually a good place to start looking. I couldn’t find this available in any of my usual places to buy masks.

12. NOHJ: Calming Intracell Sleeping Mask. On Beauteque purchase this mask for $3.25 each. You can also find this mask on YesStyle, but it is more expensive for individual ones on there. But you can by 10 packs that are about the same price.

 

And that is all of the sheet masks I used this month. Tell me in the comments what sheet masks you used. Do you have a favorite sheet mask or favorite place to shop for sheet masks?
If you are looking to try some new masks, Sally Beauty has a special going on right now. Shop 5 for $5 Single Use Face Masks. This sale is from 11/1 to 11/9 and does not require a coupon. I know I will be picking some up to try.

Sheet Masks I Used – Week Three August 2018

The masks I used week 3 of August 2018

I can’t believe three weeks have already passed. Really by the time you will be reading this most, if not all, of the month will have been over. I have already used a lot of sheet masks this month. If you missed what I used the first two weeks I also have recaps of week one, and of week two. Make sure to check those out.

Last week was a some exploring mixed with using up some things before they go bad. This week I wanted to keep trying some new items, but I also wanted to bring back some of the favorites. There was one misstep in the plan, and you will see that as we go.

The masks I used week 3 of August 2018I even added something on the fun side this week. So lets take a look at week three’s recap.

Day 15

This is the Yadah Moisturizing Mask Pack. I think the packaging makes it pretty obvious this has honey as an ingredient. This is extra moisturizing and honey is also great for pimples.

This is a great mask for anyone with extra sensitivities or someone like me who has a contact allergy. It says 4 free on the pack..It is free of parabens, fragrance, ethanol, and artificial colors. You can also find brands marked as 5 free and 6 free. It is often looked as a competition with some brands who can make their products the most natural.

 

Day 16

Day sixteen’s mask is the Pore Rosehip Mud Sheet Mask from JJ Young by Caolion Lab. I received mine in a subscription box, and unfortunately it looks like everywhere that carried this particular mask is out of stock. If you want to try something similar, you may like this It’s Skin Color Solution Mud Mask Sheet.

I had never tried one of these mud sheet masks before. It was definitely an interesting experience. I’m not sure that I am ready to pass judgment on whether I like them or not until I try another one or two.

I will say that I found myself worrying that it would stick to my brows or get in my hair. That didn’t happen, and I was pleasantly surprised by that. And it was a lot less messier and easier to remove than a traditional mud mask.

 

Day 17

Day seventeen comes with a bit of a story. This mask is the Superfood Broccoli Mask from Nohj. I had never used this mask before, but I have used broccoli masks from other brands before. As I was putting the mask on I realized it didn’t smell like the other broccoli masks I have tried, and I didn’t like the scent at all. But I powered past the smell and put it on. I had it on for about two minutes and started feeling my face having a burning and tingling sensation that I associate with an allergic reaction.

I went ahead and took the sheet mask off at that point. I went back and looked and sure enough there were several ingredients I react to with my Balsam of Peru Allergy. This was particularly odd because it was in my stash of sheet masks that were ready to use. I always check ingredients before putting any masks in there.

This was definitely not a case of it being a bad mask. I will say I did not care for the fit for me. I had to make some cuts around the eyes and mouth to make it fit, but there are

 

Day 18

Day eighteen was also a bit of a flub, but in different way. This the Wrinkle Infant Mask from Y.E.T(Yes! Enjoy Time). So the mask and the functionality of it was good. But I have used this one before, and I could have sworn this was supposed to have a baby face printed in the mask.

 

Day 19

On day nineteen I used the Pumpkin Ade Sheet Mask from Mediheal. I did tell you that I love this line of sheet mask. While the cacao one is my favorite, all of them do great things for my skin.

I do believe that this is another seasonal mask. I tend to stock up on the ones that I love when I see them, that way I can use them all year round. This should be back in stock  in the fall. With the exception of a few eBay sellers, no one seems to have them in stock right now. I wouldn’t personally recommend buying sheet masks on eBay mainly because of their shelf life. I don’t know of any similar masks to this one to recommend.

 

Day 20

You should know that I wouldn’t be able to stay away from my favorite brand for long. On day twenty I used a Pearl Essence Sheet Mask from eSfolio. Pearl essence is really great for anyone who has rough or dull looking skin. It gives you that glowing youthful look to the skin.

 

Day 21

Yes, your eyes have not deceived you. I have decided to use eSfolio on back to back days. But for day 21 I decided to go all out and use a hydrogel mask from them. This is their Aloe Hydro-Gel Mask.

This is currently sold out everywhere I know of that carried it. I am honestly not sure if this was a one time item or if it will be back. I bought mine on YesStyle in the winter time. Keep in mind many seasonal items are opposite of what they are for us. So aloe which we think of as used in summer, they have their summers as we have winter. However if you are just interested in trying a hydrogel mask, you might enjoy this ALL MASK STORY – Pearl Brightening Hydro Gel Mask.

 

That wraps up week three. There won’t be the same kind of recap for week four as I will be traveling. I will instead be doing a what skin care I traveled with post. I will still be sheet masking while traveling, but there will be some repeats. But if you want to see me using them you can catch that on my social media.

Tell me in the comments if there is a mask you would like to see me try out or give my thoughts on.

Week Four Of My Sheet Mask Challenge #newyearnewskin

New Year New Skin Challenge

New Year New Skin Challenge

So this will technically be for more than just week four. This month gave us a another half of a week to work with, so rather than make a second post for half of a week I am combining this into one. This will conclude the challenge and be the last post.

If you have not seen the previous posts and would like to get caught up on what I have done so far this month you can check out Week One, Week Two, and Week Three.

 

Day 22

Purederm Jojoba Oil Shiny & Hydrating Hair Mask

This is one of those days that I stretched the rules. This isn’t a sheet mask, it is a hair mask. It’s the Purederm Jojoba Oil Shiny & Hydrating Hair Mask. This is really one of the best hair masks for anyone who has very dry hair. I bought mine on Beauteque’s website. They are currently sold out and I couldn’t find anywhere else that has it in stock currently. However Beauteque does still currently have their Honey Vital Radiance Hair Mask and the Chamomile Nourishing Repair Hair Mask. They sell for $4.99 at regular price. And for most people there will be enough for two to three applications in a packet.

Day 23

NOHJ Tencel Sheet Mask

This is the no:hj Aqua Soothing Mask Pack Hyaluronic Acid. I bought mine on Beauteque, but they don’t seem to have these anymore. I have linked you to YesStyle. It is safe to buy from there, but expect a long wait as they ship from China. And their price on this is a little high. Most of their prices are reasonable, but not on this. I had paid $1.90 for this through Beauteque. On YesStyle it is $4.75. And quite honestly, I like this mask fine, but it is nothing special. If you really want to try it go for it, but I would get something better for that price tag.

Day 24

Heated Eye Mask

I received these in a Kira Kira Box from Japan Crate. I am not certain about the name because very little was in English on the package but I think it is from Graphic Co. It is a Heated Eye Mask. These are great in general. Very nice feeling when you are trying to fall asleep. I also like to use them for my dry eyes since my doctor wants me to use moist heat. These are so convenient. I can’t tell you where to get these, but you can find similar items on most websites that sell Korean skin care products.

Day 25

Holika Holika Monkey Glamour Lip Mask

This is the Holika Holika Golden Monkey Glamour Lip 3 Step Kit. I liked this mask set. It left my lips feeling soft, but I don’t think the results were long enough lasting. The first step is like a wipe that helps wipe away the dead skin on your lips. The second is a hydrogel mask for your lips for immediate hydrating. And the third step is a honey sleeping mask for your lips. This costs $6.99 at regular price.

Day 26

Vita Genic Whitening Jelly Mask

This is the Whitening Jelly Mask Infused with Jeju Oranges for Vitamin C Toning by Vita Genic . I really liked this mask. It was unique compared to other masks I have tried. It was like a hybrid between a regular sheet mask and a hydrogel mask. It costs $11.90 for a 5 pack or a $19.99 for a 10 pack.

Day 27

Dr. Morita Moisturizing Essence Eye Mask

This is the Dr Morita Moisturizing Essence Eye Mask 8 Pairs. These were unusual for me. It was the first time I have ever used an eye mask that is not hydrogel. They felt great though, very cooling and refreshing.

Day 28

I skipped this day due to not feeling well.

 

Day 29

Choosy Peach Lip Mask

This is another item I received in the Kira Kira box from Japan Crate. If you are interested in trying this I see that they are available on YesStyle. It is the Sun Smile – Pure Smile Choosy Lip Pack (Peach). I didn’t really care for these. There wasn’t anything wrong with them, but they just were not nearly as good as the ones I have used previously. This sells for $3.60

Day 30

Magical Beauty Deck Out Women Crystal Eyelid Patch

This is the Deck of Women Collagen Crystal Eye Mask Eyelid Patch. These are one of my favorite eye masks that I have been using for the longest times. I feel like I see the biggest results from these and they are really reasonably priced. Get a 20 pack for just $9.99

Day 31

Koelf Cosmetics Pearl Shea Butter Hydrogel Mask Pack

This is the Koelf Hydro-gel Mask Pack – Pearl & Shea Butter. I tried to save the best for last. It definitely didn’t disappoint in performance. It felt great and made my skin so soft. I was very disappointed however that it tore on me. That is the first time a hydrogel mask has torn on me. This sells for $3.80 at regular price.
