Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

B is for Black Rose - gifted to me by the wonderful @itsfi ๐Ÿ˜˜





Celebeau Black Rose Aqua Mask

This is a medium thickness cotton sheet mask that had plenty of serum and an imitation rose scent. I'm not a big fan of rose/floral scents, but it was light enough it didn't bother me. The fit was great and just a little too long at the chin. I kept it on for about a half hour. There was some light tackiness after removing that took less than 10 minutes to absorb. My face felt refreshed, soft and moisturized and the hydration lasted for quite a while.

Even though it's not my favorite kind of scent, the results turned out great! Definitely a great mask for dry skin! I'm not so sure I'd go through a lot of trouble to purchase, (mostly because of the scent,) but I'd use again for sure!

(I tried to post ingredients, but for some reason the site isn't letting me today)


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Glad to hear the results were good for you @Shosh85; sorry about the scent on this one. 

2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I used the skyn Blemish dots again last night, not because in the almost 24 hours I left them on {yup, I didn't go anywhere yesterday & they are almost invisible anyways) they did anything to my blemishes but mainly to get rid of them - they have been hanging out in my drawer way too long๐Ÿ˜ณ- ....they are useful to help me from touching/squeezing/ picking but that's about it. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ one each for the almost invisible & they come in different sizes. I'm soooooo glad I just redeemed some ipsy points for these phew! ๐Ÿ˜™down to 3. Also used OG Bite Beauty lip mask in candy cane๐Ÿ’‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  It's too bad the blemish dots weren't too effective- but at least it's keeping you from touching them! I've used up dots like this doing the same thing. Sometimes it's just so hard to keep your fingers away!๐Ÿ˜ฌ

exactly. I have one thats under the skin on my jaw๐Ÿ˜  @Sho...

exactly. I have one thats under the skin on my jaw๐Ÿ˜  @Shosh85 i can't keep myslef from pressing on it....๐Ÿ˜œ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Agree @sonnydee; the dots do keep me from touching / picking. Have you found any acne dots youโ€™d consider favorites, or worth repurchasing? 

peace out dots are really good! @itsfi I have others oh k...

peace out dots are really good! @itsfi I have others oh k !, another brand starfish or something star...i got it from ipsy.TCS makes good ones too. ๐Ÿค”thats off the top of my not at home to really look.

Re: peace out dots are really good! @itsfi I have others oh k...

@sonnydee, the Peace Out Acne Healing Dots 40 Acne Healing Dots are amazing! Love them! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’• Good to know about TCS ones; I picked up a couple of boxes earlier in the year and still need to give them a try. 

Re: peace out dots are really good! @itsfi I have others oh k...

I still need to try the oh k & the star? I like to pick them up but have a hard time branching out from what I know works-PO or TCS. @itsfi hoarder problems!

Re: peace out dots are really good! @itsfi I have others oh k...

@sonnydee, I usually rotate between the Peace Out dots and ones from CosRx and Peach Slices, plus whatever else Iโ€™m trying out or trying to finish. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ โ€œHoarder problems?โ€ Nah. I say itโ€™s all part of your โ€œskincare aficionado researchโ€!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

B is for Baobab Tree. The โ€œMy Skin-fit Sheet line from Aโ€™pieu is a winner for me. It is a little wide on my forehead and a little narrow on the nose, but not enough for me to care. Mild scent, could barely notice it. Lots of extra serum for the tattoo love.

Re: RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Weetart  So great to hear this has been a good line of masks for you! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I've tried a lot from A'pieu, but nothing from this line yet! I'll definitely have to start trying them out! Do you have a favorite? 

Re: RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This one sounds nice; love when thereโ€™s extra serum @Weetart. ๐Ÿ’•

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

โ€œBโ€ is for Biocellulose. Or is it?


Started off with a little Wild Berries lip balm from @l8totheparty, yum! This hitched a ride in a box full of Canadian treats recently. The snacks are long gone but fortunately, this is here for tonightโ€™s masking. Thank you, my friend!

I applied a thick layer of the Ole Henriksen Berry Nurturing Gel Mask, which is scented more of lavender than berries. I left it on about ten minutes. For reasons unsure, my skin has decided to become more sensitive than usual and Iโ€™ve had to watch any enzyme masks/acidic toners for redness and welts. Iโ€™ve been consistently using Bakuchiol every other night for a few months now, alternating brands every two weeks. It is touted as safe and non-irritating, so I wonder if there are ingredients in some of the brands that are bothering my skin. Never encountered this while solely using the Herbivore๐Ÿ˜ข Iโ€™ve suddenly found myself Struggling to find a mask in my stash to leave on for more than 10-15 minutes that my skin will tolerate๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Finally, I was extra excited to try the Freeman Superfood Sheet Mask. Itโ€™s star ingredient: artichoke! Itโ€™s material: biocellulose! I couldnโ€™t be happier about this combination, though my preference for artichokes is roasted and dipped in garlic butter. So I open this with great  anticipation - what is that scent? Hmmmm. Hairspray? Aquanet, I think ๐Ÿคญ

A single protective layer that felt like a mesh/plastic hybrid helped to make it easy to apply. It was a little tricky, as the shape was slightly oversize and stiff, despite feeling on the thin side. It was...awkward? My entire top lip was covered, and the chin area was wayyyyy more than necessary. I didnโ€™t trim it, just kept patting it back. It felt a little itchy at times, but that dissipated quickly. I left it on as long as I could, maybe ten minutes, and removed. 

There was a bit of tackiness, not too bad. I just did a mirror check, and my skin looks not happy. Itโ€™s maybe worse than when I started ๐Ÿ˜‚ You win some, you lose some. At least I didnโ€™t buy a box;)




Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Oh no, so sorry about the Freeman's mask! Is your face back to normal now? I've only tried one Freeman's sheet mask (from a different line) and actually ended up liking it a lot! Too bad this one was a bad experience for you! ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Sorry to hear that your skin is more sensitive @eshoe. It may be an ingredient or ingredients in the products you are using; or that the products are not working well together. Also, it may be reacting to the different Bakuchiol products being introduced - you mentioned not encountering this when your routine consisted solely of Herbivore bakuchiol. Our skin responds to products / ingredients differently depending on a host of factors, and โ€œsafe and non-irritatingโ€œ isnโ€™t always a one size fits all sort of thing. 

Have you tried pausing on masks for the time being and maybe just applying aloe (the more pure the formula, the better) to your face to help with soothing. 

oh such a let down on the scent for you ๐Ÿ˜’@eshoe at least...

oh such a let down on the scent for you ๐Ÿ˜’@eshoe at least the lip balm was a treat

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Glad you like it! @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II


Y is for Yadah

Under the sea mask pack is a thin white sheet saturated in clear bubbly serum, which included plenty extra in the sleeve. The scent,,, ok I know what seaweed smells like because I have a pond,,, and it definitely is pretty close! Fortunately you can't smell it while it's on your face. Wear time was 20 minutes, I could tell the sheet was starting to get close to being dry, after removing my skin was nicely hydrated, extremely soft and plump, very lightly moisturized. Great results not so great scent



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, I find that the fragrance on many sheet masks dissipate quickly, and are undetectable by the time I apply the mask to my face. Very happy to hear that was the case with this one; the results sound wonderful! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
