The spotlight was on watermelon for most of my maskings during the work week, with a Y for yummy 😋, with a nod to @sonnydee's rainbow theme 🌈 since watermelon comes in many varieties and in many colors. There's the red variety that many of us are familiar with, along with yellow watermelon, pink watermelon, and orange watermelon. Who knew?! tl;dr: L'Herboflore Watermelon Vitalizing Hydromask: This Taiwanese sheet mask will make a nice hydrating mask for most skin types unless there's an allergy or skin sensitivity to a particular ingredient. It's larger in size and leans slightly thicker than most cotton sheet masks, but wears comfortably. The clear, watery essence has enough viscosity to keep it from dripping everywhere and is plenty for at least 30 minutes of wear. If only the fresh watermelon scent lasted that long. Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial Mask is pale pink hued, hyaluronic acid infused, non-drying, non-tightening and non-hardening, kaolin clay based, exfoliating and hydrating mask having a light, whipped, airy consistency and a berry-ish scent. I applied it to my nose, chin and jawline, and have mixed feelings about the results. It did a pretty nice job of decongesting pores on my nose without leaving my skin feeling tight, hardening, drying down or drying. Those results I'm all for. On the other hand, it didn't perform as well on my chin and jawline as other products, so I'm not inclined to purchase a full size. Sephora Collection Watermelon After-Sun Mask (Original vs. Clean): Both are fine and there are a lot of similarities between the two masks. Aside from ingredients and scent (the clean version smells of watermelon while I did not pick up a scent from the original version), the main difference is that the piece in the clean version of the mask for the decollete is much larger, wider and thicker than the original version, which I can see might make the clean version feel more soothing on sunburned skin on that area. L'Herboflore Watermelon Vitalizing HydromaskSpoilerI have yet to taste an actual yellow watermelon but y'all best believe that it's on my "to do" list. I'll have to stick to sheet masks like L'Herboflore Watermelon Vitalizing Hydromask in the meantime, and am interested in seeking out other yellow watermelon masks. Mask:L'Herboflore Watermelon Vitalizing HydromaskMaterial:Advertised as being a Japanese Multilayer Hydromask, this feels like a cotton fiber mask that leans slightly thicker than your standard sheet mask. Feels comfortable on the skin.Fit:The size, shape and fit of Taiwanese sheet masks tend to be extremely well suited for my face size, shape and features so I was a little surprised by how large overall this particular mask was in size, but that is really a non-issue as there are several strategically placed slits around the perimeter that makes it simple and easy to fold and adjust the mask to fit my face. The only incisions required was to the inner corners of the eyes, to help the material lay flat against my skin.Essence / Serum:Clear, watery but not runny liquid. I did not pick up any scent initially. Interestingly, the scent of fresh watermelon (not jolly rancher watermelon) was noticeable near the end of my 30 minute wear time and when I removed the mask. It was a pleasant and refreshing scent so I'll take it. Claim(s):Hydrates and brightensNotable Ingredients:The inci list on this one reads like a roll call for humectants: aloe, yellow watermelon extract, sodium hyaluronate, panthenol, sodium PCA, trehalose, and allantoin. Aloe and allantoin also known for their soothing properties and panthenol, can be converted by the body into vitamin B, which has been known to have some brightening effects.Performance & Results:The mask wore comfortably and felt refreshing the entire 30 minutes I had it on and there was plenty of essence to it that I didn't experience dryness or drying anywhere on my face during that time. My skin looked and felt hydrated and moisturized afterwards, with a healthy, dewy, brightness to my complexion.My Two Cents:This is a great hydrating mask, suitable for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin, unless there's an allergy to a particular ingredient. Will I Repurchase?:Happily, though I will pace myself since I'm trying to manage my sheet mask supply and I would also like to give other L'Herboflore masks a try as well.

I love the watermelon jolly rancher scent on the products in this particular collection; the actual products within the line, however, are very much hit or miss, with my favorite product from the watermelon series being the mist.I'm pretty sure the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Jelly Hydrogel Mask is well past its prime; it's also been discontinued for years now. Conceptually, I like the idea of a watermelon infused hydrogel mask; it sounds refreshing and cooling, but it's just a slippery little sucker. I knew that would be the case going into using this mask so I made sure to apply it while I was near my bed and could just lie down for 20 minutes. Results-wise it's fine. If this hydrogel was still around, it would make a nice mask to reach for after a day out in the sun (and coming out of the fridge).New to the Glow Recipe family is the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial Mask (not sure why I am unable to tag this product). It's a pale pink hued, hyaluronic acid infused, non-drying, non-tightening and non-hardening, kaolin clay based, exfoliating and hydrating mask with a light, whipped, airy consistency and a berry-ish scent. With this mask, you're getting both a chemical and physical exfoliation. The chemical exfoliation comes from the polyhydroxy acids (PHA) and the willow bark extract (a natural alternative to salicylic acid) and the physical exfoliation comes from massaging the blueberry seed powder in the mask into your skin before rinsing the mask off completely. My cheeks tend to be the most sensitive parts of my face and my forehead has, for some reason, not responded so well in the past to PHAs, which is very odd as they are a more gentler form of AHAs. So, with that in mind, I concentrated my use of this new Glow Recipe mask on my nose, chin and jawline. It's recommended that this mask be left for 2-5 minutes. I had it on for about 2-3 minutes, maybe, before rinsing it off. I found that it did a pretty nice job of decongesting the pores on my nose, and I liked that it did not dry down, tighten or harden in order to do so. Sadly though, I didn't find that it worked as well on my chin or jawline. I picked up this DS as part of a gwp promo and I'm happy to have had an opportunity to try it out. There are other products out there that give me good results on my nose, as well as my chin and jawline and for that reason, I'll continue to use up the deluxe sample but will not be picking up a full size. The Glow Recipe Glow Lip Pop Lip Balm - Watermelon is a classic example of why giving products another shot can be a good idea. For whatever reason, I was just "meh" about this product when it launched and when I first used it. I've grown more and more fond of it each time that I use it. It has a subtle but delicious smelling watermelon Jolly Rancher scent. It glides on easily and leaves my lips feeling lightly moisturized, with a slight pink tint. This is a nice one to have on hand, to keep on at my work desk as well as in my handbag. This watermelon themed masking sesh showcased Kbeauty brand, Glow Recipe.

Sephora Collection Watermelon After Sun Masks (Original vs. Clean)SpoilerI'm a few days early for next week's masking duel theme, but we've been experiencing some unusually warm weather here in the Bay Area and it has made for excellent opportunities to give these watermelon after-sun masks a go. I've used the original version on multiple occasions. It's a great mask and now that SC has a clean line, the original version seems to always be on sale, which means it's a great add-on to put in my cart if I need to meet a minimum spend for a DS gwp. Similarities: 2-piece, 2-step hydrogel mask - one is your traditional sheet mask; the other is a mask for the neck/chest area The size and shape of the face masks for each version are identicalThe material for both feels the same as well and makes me think it is a newer generation bio-cellulose masks given how ultra thin it isClaims to be quenching and tan-perfecting. Both are hydrating, but I have no idea how to gauge how well each performs at perfecting a tan. What does that even mean? Differences:The clean version has a pink hue to the biocellulose mask while the original version has no tint to it.The clean version has a sweet, fresh, fruity scent, but it did not smell like a watermelon Jolly Rancher. I did not pick up a scent on the original version of the mask.The piece for the neck / chest on the clean version is much larger and thicker than the original version. The thickness of the neck / chest part of the clean version reminds me of the older version of biocellulose masks. This neck/chest portion of the newer, clean version of the mask also has a wide, heart-like shape, whereas the original version is a lot smaller and shaped like a Jelly Belly jelly bean. Ingredients lists are different for the masks. Overall Thoughts: Both versions of the after-sun masks are fine, though the price of the original version now that it's in the sale section at $3 (vs $5) is a better buy. The neck/chest piece on the clean version, because of its thickness and larger shape, seems like it would work better for relieving and soothing sunburns.

@Jaerae1 If you haven't found a moisturizer yet (I just noticed your thread's a month old): I assume your skin behaves oily most or all of the time? Morning: Try using your sunscreen as a moisturizer. You do apply sunscreen (at least SPF 30) each day, right? All year long? Regardless of weather or season? Most of the year, I use my daily moisturizer beneath my sunscreen. But now that the weather's dipping in and out of summertime heat, I skip moisturizer and just rely on a sunscreen that contains at least one good moisturizing ingredient like shea butter or dimethicone. Evening: When I don't use my usual daily moisturizer (which I won't recommend because it's squalane-based and might make you feel oilier), I use Paula's Choice CLEAR Oil-Free Moisturizer 2 oz/ 60 mL . Or sometimes I use a fragrance-free body lotion, usually Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion or the baby version (Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion, which has the exact same ingredients plus skin-soothing allantoin). For me, they're not heavyweight lotions. You could also try CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion or CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion; they contain several of the same ingredients, but the PM Facial Lotion contains niacinamide which may help reduce oil production, among many other things. If you haven't found a solution yet, I hope you do soon!
