A month of sheet masks #CBBGetsSheetFaced – week 4 review (LUXE week)

This past February I was doing a sheet mask per day along with Jayne (Cosmetic Proof) and Renee (See the World in PINK). I can’t believe the month is already over! πŸ™ It went by so fast, and doing this month of masking was so much fun! The last week’s theme was LUXE, which means we used masks that cost over $5. Let’s take a look at the masks that I tried…

Day 22: Living Nature Bee Venom Mask

This mask has a funky scent. The expiration date is December 2019 so it has not expired yet, but I’m really not a fan of the smell. This mask has so many slits around it, I’ve never seen a mask with so many before! Given that it has so many slits it still fits oddly on my face. I cut between the eyes but that did not help it at all in that area. The fit is just odd.

The notes say to keep this mask on for 10 to 20 minutes, and I usually go for the max, but I stopped at the 11-minute mark because I was just not enjoying it at all. This mask is different from all the other masks that I tried because you have to rinse the solution off your face once you are done. So I rinsed off my face and proceeded with the rest of my evening skincare routine.

I did not enjoy this mask.

I bought this Living Nature mask for $12.34 CAD (reg $12.99) on Well.ca.

Day 23: Innisfree Jeju orchid enriched cream mask

This mask has a very pleasant floral scent. It is a cream mask so it has a creamy white solution instead of the usual more water-based clear essence. The fit is a little bit snug and it’s comfortable. This is one of the smallest masks I have ever used because it barely touches my hairline on the sides and kind of misses the part in front of my ears/behind the cheeks. It also doesn’t wrap around my chin and gives me a little mini mask goatee because it is a little bit longer than my chin but just not long enough to wrap underneath. I did my cutting tweak between the eyes, but I only did slits on each side and did not cut fully through, and it helped the mask fit better at the top of the nose. I did not have to fill in the gap because the mask was long enough, it just needed little slits on the sides. The more I wore the mask the more the chin area would come off from my skin.

I kept the mask on for 20 minutes. After taking the mask off I massaged in the cream for a few minutes but it did not fully absorb. It felt like I was massaging in my evening cream and put on way too much – it had that consistency. I was going to check my face before going to bed to see if it had absorbed more, but I completely forgot.

This mask was okay. I definitely enjoyed this scent more than anything else. The fact that the chin area was coming off as I was wearing it even though I was not talking kind of turned me off a little bit. This is not a bad mask, I guess it just all depends on the shape of your face and how it fits for you. It just didn’t impress me enough to buy it again.

I bought this Innisfree mask for $4.11 CAD (reg. $6.32) on Cosmetic Love.

Day 24: Oh K! Intense Hydration Snail Sheet Mask

This mask has a very pleasant fresh scent. The mask itself has a good fit after I did my little tweaks. It does bunch a lot around the chin area, but otherwise, it fits well.

I kept the mask on for 20 minutes. Afterwards, I massaged in the remaining essence and it fully sunk in. There was some tackiness but it was very little so I proceeded right away with the rest of my evening face care routine.

This mask was good and I would try more from the brand.

I bought this Oh K! mask for $6.99 CAD at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Day 25: Dr.Jart+ Dermask Rubber Mask Firming Lover

This mask is a two-part mask where the first step is applying a serum to the face and the second step is applying the mask. The serum has an opaque white jello texture that melts once you rub it on your skin. It has a little bit of a medicinal scent to it, but it’s very faint. The mask fits very well on the face and is quite comfortable to wear. It is not very long; it does not reach under my chin. It sticks well to the skin and does not slide down with gravity, so I don’t have to lie down while wearing it.

This mask has the longest wear time that I have seen so far at 40 minutes. After removing the mask I massaged in the rest of the solution. Within a few minutes, it was fully absorbed, but my face felt really tacky. I let it sit for a few minutes while I cleaned up the washroom, and the tackiness went down so I applied the rest of my evening skincare routine.

This was definitely a fun mask and I am interested in trying the other ones from this line.

I bought this Dr.Jart+ sheet mask for $9.87 CAD (reg. $15.18) on Cosmetic Love.

Day 26: Banila Co VV Vitalizing Bio Cellulose Mask

This mask has a perfumey scent but I don’t find it overwhelming. It could be a bit strong for people with scent sensitivities though. When you take the mask out of the packaging you would almost think that this is a cotton mask because the bio-cellulose mask is sandwiched between two gauze sheets. The mask itself is very thin and feels good on the face, but it just has a weird fit. It sticks very well to the face and does not give me a mask goatee. when I was fixing the mask on my face I mistakenly ripped one of the sides of the nose so it is making it look a bit more odd than it should be.

I kept the mask on for 30 minutes. When I removed it, it almost felt dry. I really didn’t have a lot of essence left on my face and fully massaging it in literally took less than one minute. There was no tackiness whatsoever so I immediately followed up with the rest of my evening skincare routine.

This mask just didn’t do it for me and I don’t plan on buying it again.

I bought this Banila Co mask for $4.74 CAD (reg. $6.32) on Cosmetic Love.

Day 27: TONYMOLY Pureness 100 Caviar Mask Sheet

This mask was not over $5, but caviar is just so luxe so it fits. πŸ™‚

This mask has a fresh scent that is a little bit perfumey but I really really enjoy it. The fit is pretty good. I do find the eye holes a little bigger than what I like to have, but that is the main complaint about this mask. Otherwise, I like the fit. It does go a bit too far into my hairline which I’m not a fan of, but folding that area over is a quick fix so it’s not something that bothers me. I did do my cutting tweet between the eyes and that definitely made the mask fit better at the top of the nose. The mask is made of non-bleached cotton and has cotton seeds in it.

I kept the mask on for 30 minutes. And I completely blanked out on getting the rest of my notes. πŸ™

However, I can say that so far this week this is my favourite mask.

I bought this TONYMOLY sheet mask for $1.85 CAD (now $1.75) on Chuusi.

Day 28: Sexylook Disney Princess Black Mask in Ariel

This mask was not over $5, but princesses live lives of luxury, right? πŸ™‚

This mask has a very fresh scent that reminds me of being by the sea. It’s not salty or fishy or anything like that, but there’s just this freshness about it that reminds me of home (I grew up by the sea). I don’t know if the fact that Ariel is on the packaging affected my thoughts on the scent, but I do really enjoy it. The fit is very good, and this has got to be the widest mask I have ever tried because it actually touches my ears on both sides. I did fold it back where it was going into my hairline on the side of the face, and I also did my cutting tweak between the eyes, but those are minor details that do not bother me about the fit of a mask. The mask itself is made of cotton and it is really comfortable. It was drenched in essence, but it had just enough so that it would not drip down my face.

I kept the mask on for 15 minutes. I massaged in the remaining essence but there was too much so I stopped after a few minutes to let the rest absorb by itself. After about five minutes it was fully absorbed and there was no tackiness whatsoever so I proceeded with the rest of my evening skincare routine.

This is the second cotton mask from Sexylook that I tried and I really enjoyed both of them so I will be trying more from this brand.

I bought this Sexylook sheet mask for $2.30 CAD on Chuusi, but it’s no longer available.

Final Thoughts

This week was off to a bad start, and it was my least favourite week overall. I had way more duds than winners this week, and my two favourite masks were the less expensive masks of the week! The TONYMOLY and Sexylook masks definitely blew the other masks out of the park.

Out of the luxe masks, I did enjoy the Oh K! and the Dr.Jart+ masks, but I wouldn’t place them in my top 5 of the month.

Jayne and Renee both had better luck than I did during luxe week, and they also had pricier masks than I did. Make sure to go read their recaps.

I absolutely LOVED doing this month of masking with two fellow beauty bloggers that I love and admire. And this is not the end of our sheet mask challenges as we’ll be back in April featuring sheet masks from green beauty brands, so stay tuned!
