Oh how fun!! I would love to apply, however I just dont have enough time to put in enough effort for this, plus my social media is all private and hidden so I wouldn't be the best influencer! I'll sit aside and cheer everyone on who applies!

I know you can use hydroquinone and retina products together, I have been prescribed a script with both included and apply once a day. I am debating on changing treatment to reduce the percentage of the retina. If I use the two products separately which do I apply first. I will be using a 12% hydroquinone script once daily and 0.04% Retina Micro (more gentle)?

The last of the bunch from my week of hyaluronic acid masks.Hello hydration!!!tl;dr: These 4 hyaluronic acid based mask sheets pack quite the punch in terms of hydration and those with dry or dehydrated skin will likely be huge fans of any one, or all four, of these beauties for that reason alone. WIthout making any modifications, the sheer amount of essence in each of these masks may be too much for those with normal, oily or combination skin, except possibly in the winter months when the cold weather wreaks havoc on everyone's skin. % Dr. Ceuracle: delivers on its claims "to restore dry, dehydrated or rough-looking skin lacking hydrating.Rael: is a thinner leaning, medium density, bamboo-yarn sheet mask soaked but not dripping in a clear, slightly viscous, liquid essence that does as it claims - leaves skin moisturized and dewy.Celloine Tears: Parched skin will be crying tears of joy after spending 30 minutes with this clear, slightly-viscous, liquid essence -soaked gauze-y sheet mask. I would break a sheet mask no buy to pick up more of these Celloine Tears masks. Biobelle: The volume of clear, lightweight, watery essence saturating this thin Tencel sheet makes it entirely possible to leave this mask on for close to a full hour without it drying out. Half that time was more than enough to douse my skin with a heavy dose of hydration and leave it looking fresh faced and awake. % Dr. Ceuracle Hyal Reyouth Lifting Mask:SpoilerMaterial: The material on the % Dr. Ceuracle Hyal Reyouth Lifting Mask is described by the online retailer where I purchased it as an "eco-friendly and biodegradable cotton and gum tree sheet mask." What's gum tree? Glad you asked. 😉 It appears to be a species of the eucalyptus tree, which makes me wonder if this is a cross between a cotton sheet mask and a tencel-like mask. It certainly feels like that could be the case as the material, though soft and leaning on the thin side like Tencel, has a resiliency and certain weight to it that reminds me of a more traditional cotton sheet mask. Essence: This mask holds plenty of the clear, slightly viscous, liquid essence, probably enough for at least an additional 15 minutes more wear time than my half hour masking sesh. Fit: In terms of size, this mask similar to the royal propolis version from the same line is just all around "extra" - extra long, extra wide, extra essence. The large size and shape of the mask will make it accessible to more face sizes and shapes, but will require adjustments by most, if not all. I needed to make a small incision to the inner corners of the eye hole to minimize the possibility of any essence falling into my tear ducts. Adherence: Very good. I wouldn't say it felt like second skin, but it did cling smoothly and comfortably to my skin. Claims: Firming, lifting and hydrating Performance & Results: Not sure about the lifting claims, but it did leave my skin nicely plump and supple, and definitely provided some much needed hydration and moisture, which made for a happy complexion. Overall Thoughts: On the reverse side, the mask claims "to restore dry, dehydrated or rough-looking skin lacking hydrating." It could have just said "itsfi, you need this NOW! lol. This'll be one I'll keep in my handy dandy skincare first aid kit for when my skin is parched.

Odd, right? Adherence was fine and fit could be made to work with adjustments to the eyes, nose and mouth, and with taking the extra half inch of material at the chin and jawline and moving it to cover the rest of my forehead. This one is shaped for a smaller face than your typical sheet masks - width was great for me but there was noticeably less material for the forehead than with most sheet masks. Instructions suggested keeping the mask on for 10-20 minutes which seemed like an awfully short period of time for something so heavily drenched in essence. I ended leaving the mask on for my usual 30 minutes and using the quartz roller for a brief facial lymphatic draining massage. When I removed the mask, there were parts of my face that looked like they were doused in the essence, which, once fully absorbed, left only the slightest amount of tack. My skin looked brightened and happily hydrated, with a nice bounce to it, so it satisfied its claims of providing a "boost of moisture and an instant glow." Those with dry skin or in need of a refreshing dose of hydration will enjoy this one. It's definitely one I'd consider keeping on hand, especially in the cooler months. I could also see this working well in the spring when my allergies suck the life out of my skin.

Celloine Tears Mask:SpoilerThe gauze-like material on the Celloine Tears Mask is reminiscent of the Merbliss Nurse Healing mask, though a smidge heavier(?), and feels lovely on the skin. It's saturated in a clear, slightly viscous, unscented liquid that has a consistency of an essence and a serum. Adherence is wonderful and a few little snips here and there make for a more tailored fit. My skin feels very hydrated and looks dewy immediately after removing the mask. The very light tack fades quickly once the essence-serum is fully absorbed, leaving my complexion looking balanced, soft and smooth.

This one is worth seeking out.Biobelle #Sweet Glow Facial Mask Plumps & Hydrates with Hyaluronic Acid & Collagen (aka ice cream truck mask?):SpoilerMaterial: Light, thin, eucalyptus fiber (Tencel) Essence: Clear, light, and watery essence. The mask is very saturated but not dripping in this essence. There's an extremely light scent to this; the scent reminds me a little of plastic. The scent is subtle and, fortunately, fleeting. Fit: Fairly standard fit; adjustments needed for a more tailored and comfortable fit. For me, that meant shaving off about 3/4" from the length at the chin and jawline and using that strip to cover the 1/2" gap between the top of the sheet mask and my hairline. Width on this was perfect. Slight incisions were made to the corners for the eyes and mouth for better fit and to ensure the serum did not leak into either my eyes or mouth. Adherence: Very good; there were a few air bubbles, but they were easily smoothed over. Claim(s): Plumps and Hydrates (and with the "#SweetGlow", I'm going to say it also claims to brighten) Performance & Results: The mask felt cooling on my skin and wore comfortably for the entire 30 minutes I had this on. Even though my wear time exceeded the recommended 10-20 minutes, this mask held so much essence that I could have easily kept it on without any issues with drying for another 20-30 minutes; at least! There was zero tack or stickiness after removing the mask and patting and pressing the essence into my skin to help with its absorption. As for its claims, the "sweet glow" is more of what I consider a fresh faced liveliness - my complexion looked and felt soft, smooth and awake, as if I had gotten in a good amount of sleep even if that wasn't actually the case. The most noticeable result was how hydrated my skin looked and felt. Overall Thoughts: I haven't been too impressed with the new Biobelle sheet masks . . . until now, that is. This is hands down my favorite of the new ones. The hydration my dehydrated skin received from this mask was fantastic! This makes for a great morning mask for those with dehydrated or dry skin, or anyone who could use a boost of hydration, and in the winter, that could be all skin types. This one is a repurchase for me.

Hi, I've been using this oil for the past 4 years and at first I thought it was fabulous because it absorbed easily and didn't leave an oily feel. With my current bottle, I find it is not as absorbent as it use to be but rather sits on the face. Has anyone noticed this or knows if the company has changed their formula?

@Emy10 I love the flawless powder! I hear what you mean about not using a lot of stuff. There are two parts of me: one that wants to be responsible and sustainable, and not purchase things to avoid being wasteful, and then the other part of me that just wants all the things for no good reason.
