Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  You know, that makes me wonder if Disney has created many sheet masks featuring their own characters. (My brain's often in tangent thought mode. πŸ˜‚) I've visited Disney World at least once a year for decades... this will probably be the first year in ages I don't go. Anyway, the only place in DW I remember ever seeing sheet masks is, unsurprisingly, Mitsukoshi at Japan (Epcot World Showcase). Next time I visit DW, I'll pay closer attention to any skincare items available. 

 

Anyway... I hope you don't have a neem sensitivity and the culprit ends up being something else. It's such a good ingredient. If you try an Abib mask, I look forward to your thoughts on it! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That’s pretty incredible that you’ve made DW an annual tradition, @WinglessOne. I’ve never been to DW, only to Disneyland a few times. Seems like you would need more than one day to soak it all in. 

I tried a Mickey Mouse mask a year ago or so-it was in one of the traveling mask boxes. It was imprinted to look like Mickey, pretty cute. Now that you mention it, I’m kind of surprised there hasn’t been a collab with a company like CrΓ¨me Shop. Maybe Disney wants too much of the cutπŸ˜‚

 

Which one of the Abib that you’ve tried so far so you prefer? 

 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Heartleaf Fit is definitely my favorite Abib mask. It's almost perfect for me. 

 

About Disney World... 

Spoiler

Disney World takes 3-4 days to cover, depending on your ride tolerance and which parks you're interested in. Lines also have a lot to do with it: I hear Disney's finally overhauling their fast pass system, and thank goodness because it's such a joke, what with people (mostly annual passholders) booking all available fast passes for all the most popular rides several months in advance. 

 

My parents live near Orlando and I usually visit them twice a year: once in autumn, again for December holidays. We've done Epcot Food & Wine Fest each year since it began, except last year and, apparently, this year. 😞 That's where I spend the bulk of my DW time, but I also venture over to Hollywood Studios because that's where 2 of the best DW rides are (Rock 'n' Roll coaster and Tower of Terror). Hopefully DW fixes their fast pass problems by the time I visit again, so I'll actually have a chance to do some of the Star Wars rides. πŸ˜„ 

Animal Kingdom is a lovely place to stroll around. I'd love to have that park mostly to myself one day, just to use as a running course, because it's got small hills and winding paths. They do have the fairly new Pandora section open but, again, good luck doing the rides unless you're willing to wait 1-2 hours in line. (I've done that for one of the rides there; it was worth the wait.) And I like the Expedition Everest roller coaster. Their safari tour is also kinda neat, especially if you're with little kids. And they do educational animal presentations around the park, where a keeper will bring out an animal for show and tell. 

I don't go to Magic Kingdom unless I reeeeally get nostalgic for one or two of the rides there, or I'm visiting with family/friends who have small kids. I hear a new ride's coming to Tomorrowland, a coaster I think, and it'll be next to Space Mountain. That'll be interesting! 

I googled some Disney sheet masks. Mad Beauty's done series of princesses and villains, and the masks in both sets are hilariously creepy. 🀣 I think they're still available but, um, I prooooobably won't buy any. I'm sure your Mickey Mouse mask looked much better than these! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I’ve heard DW is something that takes a few days to soak in, @WinglessOne. That must be terribly disappointing for people who don’t consider the FastPass spots would all be reserved😳 I’ve only done that at Six Flags (not sure what they call it, but it was well worth it). We’ve offered to take my daughter to Disneyland a few times as she’s gotten older, most recently a year or so ago, and she really has no interest. Which...I cannot complain, at all! The food and wine event sounds like a blast , though. Good grown-up fun;)

 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Didn't you do a Disney mask before, @itsfi

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I did @Shosh85. There was a set of Disney Villians sheet masks that I had. I’ve seen some Mickey Mouse ones too a while back. I think at Target at one point but I didn’t discover them in time and missed out on picking those up. @WinglessOne 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  I love honey masks and this one sounds wonderful! I'm not so big strong fragrances, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't mind a strong honey scent! 🍯 Glad to hear this brand is turning out great so far!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ohhhhh this honey mask sounds unbelievable!!! @WinglessOne 

2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

A for Apto Healing Turmeric Mask. And this also checks the pet peeves challenge. Why you ask?.... 1. the color, it reminds me of baby πŸ’©sorry.... so for that alone it makes me not want to try it😬 2. wash off masks that dont come off THAT easy. this definitely needs a cloth toremove ,which i used. But also is strange because it doesnt dry down allthe way🀷 3. Strong smells, it definitely is a smell you can either live with or not. it stays the whole time you have it on- 20 min 4. * didn't affect me that I saw* but reviews have said this can STAIN your skin😳 I think I have 1 more use out of this ds. After removing my skin did feel softer but i think I would like this better if it exfoliated.πŸ€” I might have to try this again & exfoliate before.....by itself its ok but I like stuff better. πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee, this is the first I’ve heard of this brand. Just went to look them up after your review. They have some interesting masks, but sounds like this particular one that is just okay. The possibility of it staining your face makes me a bit nervous about it - I can totally see me keeping it on longer than I should, forgetting to take it off and then staining my face. 😳 I’ll be interested though to know how it performs after exfoliating.

yes, that would be a BIG con to walk around with jaundice...

yes, that would be a BIG con to walk around with jaundice looking skin! @itsfi if it stained, I didn't see it but it might be more visible on more fairer skinπŸ€” the green ( balancing) I did see, near my hairline, it didn't " stain" but I did have to go over it more than once with my cloth. maybe that's what they are talking about....

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  Too bad this one was unimpressive! I'm not so sure I like the sound of it potentially staining skin 😬

Can't love them all @Shosh85 but im ok with that- making...

Can't love them all @Shosh85 but im ok with that- making room for my go tos.πŸ€—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydeeI tried the Nourishing a Mask from this brand and it turned my skin red and itchy (guessing the culprit is the spirulina?) This one seems like worth a try. The color sounds similar to the KORA Organics Turmeric BHA Brightening Treatment Mask 3.38 oz/ 100 mL

yikes! 😬 @eshoe I do have some others from this line- πŸ€”...

yikes! 😬 @eshoe I do have some others from this line- πŸ€” pomegranate & balancing. Gotta love ipsy

Re: yikes! 😬 @eshoe I do have some others from this line- πŸ€”...

I hope you share how it goes with the other ones, @sonnydee. I was pretty excited, it looked like it would be a good one!

Re: yikes! 😬 @eshoe I do have some others from this line- πŸ€”...

Of course @eshoe πŸ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee very interesting,,, I'd be willing to give it a try though πŸ˜†

thats the spirit!πŸ’›πŸ‘ @lmaster i got it in my ipsy bag one month but I have gotten others as well, maybe it'll come around again

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  Aw, I know some (okay, many) folk don't like the scent of turmeric, but I do. I'm glad you still got some good results from this mask! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Well this mask definitely does turmeric justice! @WinglessOne I'm in the can stand it group. Not something I would want my deodorant or perfume to smell, like but i can deal with.
