Re: Empties - 2019

Mostly loves when it came to sheet masks ... which is surprising because it was the first time that I used these masks and many of them were for the 'gross' ingredients week in last week's Mask of the Week Challenge. 

"I love you forever" sheet masks! <3 <3 <3"I love you forever" sheet masks! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

Top row:
  • Elensilia-IntraCELL Escargot + Placenta Firming Mask - whoa! I actually felt that it provided some firming, around the under eye area - a pleasant surprise.
  • TonyMoly Pureness 100 Caviar Mask Sheet (Nutrition) - I'm not super keen on caviar or fish eggs, but this mask is very much a repurchase for me
  • Holika Holika Skin Rescuer Mask Sheet – Hyaluronic Acid - leaves skin looking and feeling refreshed and hydrated
  • TonyMoly Pureness 100 Placenta Mask Sheet (Vitality) - love the unbleached cotton sheet mask and ingredients list, including the soybean placenta that is used in the serum

Bottom row:

  • Holika Holika Prime Youth Black Sea Cucumber Mask Sheet - 2-piece hydrogel; one of the best fitting mask
  • boo Bamboo Sheet Mask Hydrating (Coconut) - great ingredients list; love the charcoal bamboo fiber material of the sheet mask; love the hydration and subtle scent to the mask
  • Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack - would make a nice everyday mask

"I like you a lot" sheet masks! :)"I like you a lot" sheet masks! 🙂

  • Heimish Low pH Hydrating Mask Sheet - good hydrating mask; this could make a good once-a-week or daily mask; will repurchase and test out to see if results get better with use
  • Secret Nature Fermentated Jeju Horse Oil Mask Pack - surprised I like this one (hydrated and glowy skin), but probably would not repurchase
  • Faith in Face Signature Gold Mask - lots of serum in the sheet mask; would repurchase but would try making different adjustments to the mask to help the part above the upper lip from slipping around so much

"Maybe" - not bad, but not a standout"Maybe" - not bad, but not a standout

  • Salon de Bi Joie Foot Mask Placenta Moisture Treatment Pack - nice fit, has a slight floral-ish scent that lingers after the mask has been removed
  • The Lotus Jeju Soothing + Whitening Mask (Step 2 of The Pure Lotus Home Spa Mask Pack) - the only mask from the 3 step mask pack that didn't tingle or sting

"It's not you, it's me""It's not you, it's me"

  • The Lotus Jeju Moisturizing + Wrinkle Treatment (Cream Type) Mask (Step 3 of The Pure Lotus Home Spa Mask Pack) - this is just "meh"; was fine but the tingling near the last 5 minutes I could do without.

"NO. It's you, it's definitely you!""NO. It's you, it's definitely you!"

  • The Lotus Jeju Exfoliating Mask (Step 1 of The Pure Lotus Home Spa Mask Pack) - I removed it after having it on my face for a minute because of the stinging. 


Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi , the stinging of the lotus masks does not sound fun!

Re: Empties - 2019

@curlychiquita, it was definitely not fun. I've never taken off a sheet mask so early or so quickly. It's just odd because my skin should be accustomed to lactic acid, but it was either too high a concentration for me or the combination with other ingredients wasn't something my skin liked. 😞

@itsfi good job getting through your "it's you" masks...l...

@itsfi good job getting through your "it's you" that 😉

Re: @itsfi good job getting through your "it's you" masks...l...

@lmaster, it was definitely not the most fun masking experience.😂

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi Wow! So many great masks, thanks for sharing 🙂


Re: Empties - 2019

Such a surprise how many good masks came out of last week’s mask challenge @RebeccaBT! Learned a lot about different ingredients and now my list of masks to buy is even longer!! 😂

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi Everytime I learn about new ingredients I am the same way!  



Re: Empties - 2019

😂😂😂 @itsfi love your commentary 😊

Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks @eshoe! 😃 It makes masking that much more fun! The “I love you forever” category is courtesy of @scott1201! 🤣💗

Re: Empties - 2019

Weekly empties 

I fell in love with the Sisley hydra global anti-aging moisturizer, but after seeing how much this costs full size...ummmm yeah not sure if 255$ is worth it 😮 I liked the momande mask, but it does contain "good" alcohol, I still want to avoid any alcohol so, I'll stay away from this and the age defying collagen mask was nice, but it contains a paraben 🙄 disliked the patchology clean af cleansing wipes..I didn't realize it says AF on the packaging, I have a 12 year old daughter that doesn't need to see this, so that alone, I will not repurchaseLovesLoves






Re: Empties - 2019

@lmaster, That Sisley moisturizer sounds nice but that price point does not. 😲 Love that coconut ceramide sheet mask!! 🥥 

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi I really don't know how that's justifiable! I had to get a few more of those masks 😉

Re: Empties - 2019

Oh my goodness @lmaster. Don’t let her browse the Tom Ford fragrances🙄

Re: Empties - 2019

Right! @eshoe  😂

Re: Empties - 2019

A few empties that I finally managed to photograph. I’ve had many empties recently thanks to shopping my stash but always tossed out the containers before taking a pic. 


This week i decided to part with a few things (the shadow stick and stila) that aren’t empty but had reached their expiration date.


One final point regarding the hourglass: I had a difficult time scraping all the product from this container. There’s a bit more left but i gave up trying to scrap out what’s left. 



Re: Empties - 2019

@trishavt  I hate it when my Stila glitters bite the dust :(.

RE: Re: Empties - 2019

I loooveee those Stila glitters!!

RE: Re: Empties - 2019

@trishavt Bonus Points for checking expiration dates! I’ve gotta step up my game.

Re: Empties - 2019

Nice work on shopping your stash, @trishavt ! Which Stila is that?

Re: Empties - 2019

@eshoe  It’s stila kitten karma.
