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. that’s 1 foil a day unless I decide to stack more than one! Here’s what I’ve picked randomly!

Re: Foil Challenge

That’s awesome progress @missjeanie! 😃 I find it can be so hard to gauge how many uses I’ll get out of a foil. There are some that seem to be never ending (looking right at you, Eminence neck cream and Guerlain L’Or primer samples 😝) and then there are some that have juuuust enough for one use! 

Yes to more sheet masking! 👍🏼 My skin seems to have changed a bit so that daily sheet masking is not as easy to do as before. Just an observation. Makes me have to work double time to keep from picking up more sheet masks. 

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi Yes!  It's so hard to know how many uses I'll get out of some.  I'm feeling on track for this month so far... Fingers crossed I can keep up for the rest of the month!

Re: Foil Challenge

🤞🏼🤞🏼 @missjeanie! You’ve got this!! 

Re: Foil Challenge

Mid-month update. 

February Foils Challenge - update.jpg

Following @ather's lead, I'm checking in with where I am mid-month with the foil challenge. Currently, I'm ahead of schedule with the foils at 18 (unless you count the individually wrapped nail polish remover pads I've been going through, then I'm really ahead but I'm not counting those for this challenge since I didn't include them in the foils challenge). As for my daily sheet masking efforts, I'm just barely keeping up.  

Re: Foil Challenge

Thank you for the update @itsfi your doing good!

I did that too, I used products I was familiar with first, so I didn't have to worry too much about interaction/reactions with products in my routines. With new to you products it gets more tricky 😅

Re: Foil Challenge

Tricky indeed, @CynthieLu! Gone are the days when I can swap out a new skincare product daily ... oh wait, I never had days when I could do that. 😂🤣😂 The skincare lover in me *might* have tried on several occasions to do just that, and failed over and over and over again. 😳 I've learned my lessons, the hard way. Stick to what my skin knows and likes, and intro new things after a patch test one at a time with lots of time in between. 

Re: Foil Challenge

18 is super impressive @itsfi !  Daily masking in itself is a wow, doing that AND using up foils... dang!

Re: Foil Challenge

Ahhh, thank you @missjeanie, but I sorta stacked the deck in my favor - there are only 6, maybe 7, new-to-me products in this batch so I’m more comfortable with using up what makes up the majority of goodies in the bin. 😆 This way I’m not intro’ing new items every day. My skin likes me more when I space out new products. 

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi @I was thinking along the same lines as well when I chose my stash. A few new, a few older, a few I know. 

Re: Foil Challenge

@missjeanie, I think having a variety is helpful for the challenge. It’s like sheet masking or having ice cream in the house - options are never a bad thing. 😂 

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi Great progress. Masking daily would be wonderful. I find i only fit it in on the weekends.

Re: Foil Challenge

Getting in time to mask whenever you can is a great way to go about it @Mellmars1185! Are you finding that you reach for the same mask(s)  every weekend or do you have a mix of them that you choose from as the mood (or your skin’s mood) dictates?

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi I am masking usually after running my errands and cleaning on the weekends. I usually wash my face in the mornings and use serums and spf. Then i have to wash them off to put the mask on. Then i wash my face again before bed. When I think about it, I feel like I am wasting product. Maybe it would be better to do as part of my bedtime routine so there is less washing and rinsing off product. The type of mask I use dependss on my mood lol. I am still trying to figure out my skin as it is unpredictable.

Re: Foil Challenge

Yeah @Mellmars1185, finding a good time in your routine to get it in can be challenging. If you're using a sheet mask, would you have time to use one after your serums and before your SPF?

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi Yes I can. Great idea. I can make that adjustment in my schedule. Thank you 😊💓. I will try that tomorrow. It is Family Day tomorrow where I live, so we have a long weekend. Self care Monday!

Re: Foil Challenge

Yaaay for long weekends! Happy Family Day to you and yours @Mellmars1185! I hope you have a very restful and rejuvenating self care Monday. Pamper away! 😍

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi  wow you are doing amazing!!’ Ahead of the game is the best place to be!! I bet it feels so good to be ahead of the game. 

Re: Foil Challenge

Thank you @ather! 😊 More than half of the samples are of products I’ve used before so it’s been easier to incorporate them into my routine without worrying about how they will interact with my skin or other products that are staples in my routine. This last half of the month will be a little trickier. There are a couple of foils for products I’ve never used before so I need to figure out how to put them to use and minimize the likelihood that I will have a bad reaction to it, if that’s possible. 😆 

Re: Foil Challenge

So since today is the 14th and there’s only 28 days in February this year I thought I would count my halfway progress!! I have 10 used. And thankfully thanks to @itsfi  I have 2 more in the shower!! So I’m around 12. I also did a mask the other night so I guess I could count 13!! I don’t think I found any loves that need to be purchased yet. I had some reactions to a couple and I have a breakout right now. But I’m pleased I am using up my foils!!

Re: Foil Challenge

Sorry to hear that you had reactions @ather 😔 That is such a bummer! 

 

I hope that your skin clears up and recovers soon 💗

 

 

 

Re: Foil Challenge

@CynthieLu  Thanks. It seems to be getting better! I’m going to dig through my mask foils and see if I can find a good one for tonight!
