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.

Week Three Sheet Mask Challenge #newyearnewskin

New Year New Skin Challenge

New Year New Skin Challenge

We are now at the end of week three of my sheet mask challenge. If you missed the previous post you can click here to find week one and here for week two.

 

Day 15

Esfolio Pearl Essence Sheet Mask

This is the Esfolio Essence Mask Sheet – Pearl. As you have probably heard me say way too many times now esfolio is one of my favorite brands because I really see results from their products. This pear essence mask helps with brightening. If you are unsure what that means you probably never had a problem with dull skin, but it can essentially mean one of two things. People usually mean that skin doesn’t have the radiance and brightness that youthful skin has, or sometimes it’s used in referring to uneven skin tone. This sheet mask cost $1.99 at regular price.

Day 16

berrisom Black Rice Horror Mask

This is the Berrisom Horror Mask Skull – Black Rice. This mask, while the picture was hilarious, was not a good fit. It did not cover my whole face. The essence is supposed to be for moisture and elasticity, however I really didn’t think this mask performed well. It did feel pleasant on. Like most of these fun mask, I would classify them more as a beginners mask. They are great to get people interested in skin care, especially teens. This sells for $3.00 normal price.

Day 17

Botanic Farm Avocado Mask

This is the Botanic Farm Natural Energy Mask Sheet- Avocado. This is a great mask. Super moisturizing, and it contains a lot of the vitamins and antioxidants your skin needs. It performs well. It is $16.00 for a box of 10.

Day 18

This day was skipped because I was ill.

 

Day 19

Mediental Soothing Sensor Hydrogel Mask

This is the Mediental- Relaxing Soothing Sensor Hydrogel Mask. I had a bit of trouble with the initial application and getting this to stay in place, but after the initial two to three minutes it was fine. The mask itself was very cooling and soothing feeling. I will definitely repurchase this mask. And it is one of the most affordable hydrogel masks I have tried. It cost just $3.00 at regular price.

Day 20

Holika Holika Baby Silky Hand Sheet Mask

This is the Holika Holika Baby Silky Hand Mask Sheet. This is great for softening your hands and cuticles, especially in the winter time. I hadn’t tried this particular brand before but I had tried similar. They all seem to work well. This sells for $5.48, and I believe you get two packs. The link goes to Amazon, but I bought mine somewhere else that is now sold out.

Day 21

Ettang Modeling Take-Out Cups

This is the Ettang Modeling Take-Out Cup Pack. We used these at the Korean Skin Care party I co-hosted with my friend Jenny. I used the Mulberry one. This is not a sheet mask obviously, but I didn’t get home till late and I had done so much skin care at this point, there was no need to do more before bed.

 

Let me know in the comments what masks you tried this week.

 

And don’t forget any of the mask that are available on Beauteques website you can receive 10% off your purchase with the code KAREN

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.

Week One Of My Sheet Mask Challenge #newyearnewskin

New Year New Skin Challenge

I had originally had intended for today to be a fashion post, but we have unfortunately this week been hit by a sudden and drastic drop in temperature as well as our first snow of the year(or as I like to call it Devil Dust). And doing a fashion post is both more time consuming as well as physically exerting, and I just don’t have it in me to do it right now. So consider today’s post brought to you by fibromyalgia. It sponsors a lot of my decisions in the winter time.
So what am I talking about today? If you saw my post from a little over a week ago about my goals for the year, then you know that all this month on Instagram I am doing a sheet mask challenge. I am using a sheet mask every day this month in my skin care routine with no repeats, so 31 different sheet masks. I have tried to share a little info about each one, but I thought I would do a summary each week on here with links to the actual masks as well as any additional info I thought might be helpful. I may end up sharing some of the same info, but not everyone follows me on Instagram.

New Year New Skin Challenge

And everyone is welcome to join in and participate with the sheet mask challenge, it’s not too late. If you don’t have or can’t afford enough sheet masks for the rest of the days of the month, just participate as you can.

Day 1

A'PIEU Sweet Mwlon Sheet Mask

On day one I used the A’pieu Sweet Melon Sheet Mask. This is a cotton mask that you leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. This is a pleasantly sweet melon scent. I am not sure what the melon is that is used, but the closest reference for scent that American’s will recognize is a Honeydew Melon. The mask is soaked in a mixture of melon and milk protein extracts. This is mainly used for moisturizing. It sells for $1.99 regular price.

Day 2

Holka Holika Juicy Aloe Sheet Mask

On day two I used the Holika Holika Juicy Mask Sheet – Aloe. This is used for soothing and moisturizing. It has a light fresh scent that you would expect from aloe. However if you detect a little something more in the scent, that is because there is also cucumber and cabbage extract in the mix. This mask can be worn for 15 to 20 minutes. It sells for $2.20 at regular price.

Day 3

A'PIEU Black Charcoal Sheet Mask

On day three I used the A’Pieu Pore Deep Clear- Black Charcoal. This is a black sheet mask. The main ingredient is black charcoal. It is great for not only cleansing the surface of your skin of impurities but also your pores. While a lot of clay masks that do the same thing may dry your skin out, no worry about that with a sheet mask. So all skin types are okay to use this mask. This sells for $1.99 regular price.

Day 4

esfolio Volcanic Ash Essence Sheet Mask

On day four I used the esfolio – Pure Skin Volcanic Ash Essence Mask Sheet. This is in my top ten favorite masks of all time. This is a must have mask for anyone that deals with skin issues that cause plaque like build up on the skin. It’s good for other people too. Like a charcoal masks it cleans out skin impurities, but it does it in a different way. I normally purchase this mask from either Beauteque or Memebox, but neither of them currently have it in stock for some reason. I looked and the only place I have purchase from before that has it in is yesStyle, so that is where the link leads. Please be aware if you order from yesStyle those items ship from China, so expect anywhere from a two to six week wait for your items. Also they seem to only be available by the box on this site, so it will be a higher price than just one at a time. They sell for $17.42 for a 10 pack.

Day 5

Shelim Ultra Hydrating Essence Mask Sheet in Coconut

On day five I used the Shelim Ultra Hydrating Essence Mask- Coconut. This was a new mask to me that I was really excited to try. I love anything coconut, and I was not disappointed. I want to give it another try, but this just might move into my top ten favorite masks. The smell was amazing, just like a pina colada. This mask is a real work horse to. Obviously from the name you know its going to be used for hydration, but it is also good for soothing damaged skin, helps with skin elasticity and vitality. And it says “The active component forms a protective coat on the skin, while locking in moisture.” You can keep this one on for 20 to 25 minutes. It sells for $1.90 at regular price.

Day 6

2017-01-06-22-56-28

On day six I used the MediHeal Cacao Ade Sheet Mask. I can’t link this because no one seems to have it in stock at the moment. I think a lot of items are seasonal. This is also one of my top ten sheet masks. It is meant to be a topical cleaning kind of mask, but it also is very relaxing to me because of the chocolate smell. Yes it smells like real chocolate. It feels very soothing on the skin, and it feels like a real spa like experience. This normally sells for $1.90 at regular price.

Day 7

SkinFood Beauty in Food Mask Rice

On day seven I used the Skinfood Beauty in a Food Rice Mask Sheet. I normally get these from Beauteque, but they are sold out. The only place I could find them currently was on Amazon, which is where I linked you to. However, it is for a full box. This mask moisturizes, smoothes, and brightens. It sells for $14.40 for a 10 piece box.

 

If you decide you would like to try any of the items mentioned from Beautque, don’t forget you can get 10% off your order(even on sale items) with coupon code KAREN.
