Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi   The thought of hot dog water makes me gag.  😂😅🤭

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, the best part was when it faded away @heartsmyface!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I feel like a lot of the Vitamin C products I've used have a citrus cleaner kind of scent...... but hot dog water!?! Oh my! I feel grossed out, yet intrigued by that description. I think I'm weird enough that I might actually prefer hot dog water scent to citrus cleaner.. haha! 😂 Just out of curiosity, do you happen to remember where you got this hot-dog-water mask? 🤔😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, hahaha! I love your curiosity and adventurous spirit, Shosh! You're awesome. This was part of a unicorn mail, but they sell these on amazon, in a pack of 3. Some vitamin C have a smell that to me was not something I could describe and then one day, I think I was perusing the beauty counters inside a store (so a while back! lol) and I overheard one of the sales associate warn a customer beforehand that a particular vitamin C serum didn't have a great smell and that it smelled a little of hot dog water. You know that moment when you realize, "yes, that's what it is?!!" well, I had that moment when I overheard that comment. 😅 It was like when Cher from Clueless suddenly realized that she is in love with Josh 😂🤣😂 but minus the lights, fountains and music in the background without the montages leading up to that realization. 

clueless i love josh gif.gif


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

thanks for the Clueless gif @itsfi're speaking my language. 😂  what was the exact line? "totally, completely, head-over heels, butt-crazy in love w/josh"? lol, at least I thought I remembered the butt-crazy part from somewhere.  used to have the whole movie memorized lol. 😉 🤗


thankfully I've never come across a vit. C serum of that variety.  mine always smell like bright citrus. 🙂  I can only guess it's from the limp bizkit line, lolllllll. 😉 😂


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yaaaay, another Clueless fan @treestar86! Such a fun film! I think you're right on with the quote! That movie had some great quotes. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  how could anyone not love it!?!? 😍 😎

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi are you enjoying the StackedSkincare after using it for awhile? Curious if you have grown fonder of it over time! Also, that SEPHORA COLLECTION Clean Face Mask Lychee is quite pleasant! The scent reminded me very much of Living Proof No Frizz Intense Moisture Hair Mask 6.7 oz/ 200 mL - and really, a few of their products 🙂 I also see @ather has excellent taste in candles, yum!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, I can't seem to make the StackedSkincare lip peel work for me, on my lips or elbows, though I keep trying. 😂 Did you get a lychee scent from the Sephora Clean lychee mask? 

@ather has excellent tastes, which includes candles. I haven't tried all the Voluspa candles - I usually keep going back to the same ones, though I have picked up a few new scents this year, all also good. 💕

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ahhhh good to know @itsfi. I was thinking about trying it, but remembered you were on the fence so was happy to find it again here! Sounds like a pass, for now, at least.


I've never tried a fresh (raw?) lychee, so it would be hard for me to say. I have tried that candle, and still find the Saijo Persimmon to be my favorite. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The Saijo persimmon candle smells wonderful @eshoe. 🧡 It’s also a sentimental favorite for me, being my first Voluspa candle; the one that kickstarted it all for me with Voluspa. 🥰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Funny you mention that, @itsfi - it was the first candle I bought of theirs and it’s been my favorite ever since. I am very happy they still make it, hope it is always part of the collection!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi   I LOVED that honey lip treatment and the huge applicator!  I went through a whole tube in like three months!  So good!  The lip peel looks intriguing.  Do your lips actually peel or is it more a gradual exfoliation? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface, I think I picked up the honey lip oil 🍯 because of you!!! 💖 I have the stick balm and it's alright. Now, this lip oil on the other hand, it's wonderful. I like the oversized applicator; makes me chuckle how large it is. 😂 


The lip peel is something I've been disappointed by - either by it or by my inability to make it work for me. 😐 My lips haven't peeled, even when I've used it on consecutive days, though to be fair I don't do that for very many days, primarily because I can't stand the chemical taste of it. It might be meant as a gentle chemical exfoliation, but I'm not seeing the results. I wanted it to work because how great would it be to have a gentle peel for the lips, but it seems that my lips prefer the scrubs. I've removed the rollerball from it and mix in a little bit of it with a lip oil to apply to my lips, or I've occasionally re-purposed as a "peel" for my elbows (I'll add a drop or two to my moisturizer) and then apply on my elbows.


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi What a beautiful theme. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @Samtian! 😄 If only I had real lychees. Next time...

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  mmm that would have been nice!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhhh, but look at what I just found @Samtian


Sure, it’s not the same as having it around the masking time, but I can live with that. 😆 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Awe say what! I wish I had cool things like this near me.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

L is for a limited edition.   I think I have two of these left. I’ve enjoyed these masks so much.  they’re my favorite crème shop mask but all good things must come to an end.  Enjoying it with some Sakura royal milk tea.  


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

What a lovely masking sesh!! @heartsmyface gorgeous tea cup 😍
