Foil Challenge

I know we all talked about this but I need it in writing to hold myself more accountable! I have picked out around 28 foils that I am hoping to get through by the end of Feb. thatโ€™s 1 foil a day unless I decide to stack more than one! Hereโ€™s what Iโ€™ve picked randomly!

Re: Foil Challenge

Great job, @missjeanie!  Seeing those eye masks is making me want to use some of mine because that sounds FABULOUS right now.

Re: Foil Challenge

@CookieGirl1 My eye masks (among others) were being forgotten... And they're actually some of my favourite masks of late are eye masks... easy peasy ones!

Re: Foil Challenge

@missjeanie I totally know what you mean!  For some reason I mentally tell myself to "save them" for "an occasion" and then the occasion never comes and they sit, unused, when I SHOULD be using them.  Don't ask me how that mentality makes sense, I don't know...

Re: Foil Challenge

@CookieGirl1 I do the same thing!  I'll just 'save' mini's and foils the same way?  Why?? Yes, they're handy for travel... but it's so fun to test out new things and enjoy them!

Re: Foil Challenge

This is a great variety of foils and DS goodies you have @missjeanie! The "ok, but coffee first" is speaking to me. ๐Ÿ˜… It's fun seeing what everyone has chosen for the challenge. . 

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi That mask came with 5 others in a coffee cup... I'm a sucker for both coffee and marketing lol

Re: Foil Challenge

@missjeanie  I love that you picked out DS. Thatโ€™s another area I need to work on!! 

Re: Foil Challenge

@ather lol... we'll see at the end of the month if I make those DS or not lol

Re: Foil Challenge

@missjeanie  I feel like if you use some it should count right lol 

Re: Foil Challenge

Great selection of foils @missjeanie You got this! ๐Ÿ˜„

Curious, what is that cute Aurora one? I can't see it, is it a space bear? ๐Ÿป  ๐ŸŒŒ 

Re: Foil Challenge

@CynthieLu It is a space bear!  It's a sheet mask from Oozoo that's way past it's expiry date lol.  You fold the ear over and 'pop' some extra serum into the pack.  I have a few more hanging around if this one is still good that'll get used as well.  Hopefully!

Re: Foil Challenge

That's a cute one! I hope is a good one to ๐Ÿ˜‹ @missjeanie 

Re: Foil Challenge

Here are my February Foils, or, at least, what I plan/hope to use up this month. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ 

 

February Foils.jpeg

I pulled out 30 foils - some alternates in case my skin is feeling finicky. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Placed them in this bin along with a few other things Iโ€™m wanting to get to this month.The plan is to go through 28 of the foils - there are some duplicate products; most are things Iโ€™ve used before and may have full sizes on hand, and there are a few new-to-me items. Iโ€™ll try to remember to update this post with a rundown of the category of products these foils fall into.

My basket of sheet masks (and a few other random treats that snuck their way in while I was trying to tidy up). Like the foils bin, I set aside 30 sheet masks - just in case a quick change of plan is needed to address any unplanned skin condition or concerns that come up. Thereโ€™s a pack of 10 masks as well as a 7-sheet mask daily masking pack. 

Thank you @ather for spearheading this challenge. I try to keep my foils to a small stash but that doesnโ€™t always happen and itโ€™s good to go through what I have. Never know when a new-to-me may become a love and eventually a tried-and-true product. Excited to hear about folksโ€™ progress and how the month goes for everyone! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: Foil Challenge

This is quite a generous group of samples, @itsfi! I wish you well on your little journey this month to work your way through them. Cute set-up, too. 

Re: Foil Challenge

Love the baskets @itsfi !  I've got everything set in my washroom in a BIC box to try and remind me to use them.  But I need to do a little hunt around the house for some cute baskets!

Re: Foil Challenge

@missjeanie, I have to put them right in the line of sight or it seems to just slip my mind. ๐Ÿคฃ And, even when they are right in front of me, I can sometimes pass them over. Hahaha!

 

I love that you keep them in your BIC box - that's fun! ๐Ÿ’—

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi  I love your baskets! They look amazing. I like that you picked out 30 to give you some changes. I noticed my skin needed something extra today and I had what I needed on hand but I wish it was in my foil basket. So itโ€™s smart to add extras. Itโ€™s nice to have them in your face too so youโ€™re like yes I need to pick from this basket. I have been horrible so far only day 4 but not using masks other than my DDG mask. I need to improve. 

Re: Foil Challenge

That's great that you're using your DDG so consistently @ather! It's impressive and inspiring. ๐Ÿ˜ It's about listening to your skin (or hair or whatever the foils are for) and doing what is best for it. 

 

We're almost thru 2 weeks of the February Foils and it's been interesting to say the least. One week, I'm very good with the foils - I find when I use the hair foils, I can sometimes get 2 in one day - gotta love the shampoo & conditioner foil sets. But, then, the next week, I'll be better with the sheet masks. Ha! C'est la vie. Speaking of sheet masks, I probably should cull through my basket and see what is on the menu for tonight - a new-to-me mask or a tried-and-true one? Hmmm... decisions, decisions... ๐Ÿค”

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi  I am off and on with the DDG but mostly good. I do miss once in a while. So does the shampoo count as one and the conditioner another one? I counted them as one but I like this loophole!!! I am like you. I can be good one week and terrible the next but having a โ€œchallengeโ€ helps me to be better. If I do it on my own I am not the best. I donโ€™t mind disappointing myself lol. Even if I get through 15 in a month Iโ€™m happy!! More is better than none! 

Re: Foil Challenge

I agree @ather; more is better than none. I count the shampoo packet as 1 foil and the conditioner packet as another foil. Because what if I just use the conditioner because the shampoo has something in it that doesnโ€™t agree with my hair or scalp. I should still get credit for using the foil of the conditioner, yes? Maybe Iโ€™ve been counting these foils wrong all along? ๐Ÿ˜ Since they can stand alone, I count it as one. If, say, they were the Dr Jart 2-piece sheet mask where the 2 pieces are in 2 separate packs, Iโ€™d count that as 1 because they need to go together. Whereas I see shampoo & conditioner as able to go together but they donโ€™t necessarily have to be used in the same hair wash sessions. 

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi  I love this!! I donโ€™t think thereโ€™s a way to count wrong. But I think it makes sense. So Iโ€™ll count mine as 2 now!! It will make me feel way more accomplished!!!
