Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather  This Dr. Jart one is definitely my favorite so far! I have a few different peels and have had great experiences with all of them........ I would LOVE if I could get my husband to use a foot peel! πŸ˜‚ Which one do you have?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85  Will your husband do a regular foot mask? Mine seems to love doing them. It seems it’s been our COVID treat.

 this is the peeling foot mask. We tried it tonight. We will see what happens. I don’t have much that would peel but my husband has pretty bad feet. 
His review is that he didn’t like that you had to cut the booties to get to the sock part. Unlike the others we used it’s not open already. And the sock was not easy to separate. It had a strong lavender scent mixed with a chemical smell. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That is so fun it has a warming effect! That alone makes them tempting @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Weetart  My thoughts exactly πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‰ Wven in the summertime my feet are always cold! 

RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

C is for Cooling. Most of us know all about the skyn eyemasks so I won’t go into too much detail. I love how they are kinda puffy and springy. And how they actually work. I woke up, washed my face, was shocked at how much my age spots and freckles have been fading, finally seeing good results but made a grumpy face when I saw my eyes. Sooo out came these puppies. Thank goodness I still have a stack of these. Wonder sponges. Smooths everything out and makes me appear more well rested than I actually am.

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

Yesss, love these patches. Glad they worked their magic on you, @Weetart!! 

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

Love these eye gels, @Weetart!

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

@Weetart Interesting!

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

Oh yes the Skyn Iceland eye gels @Weetart! I have a couple bags of them but still I hoard them. I need to get them out.

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

These are great eye masks @Weetart happy to see they are a winner for you too 😊

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

@Weetart  These are great!! I love them!

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

@Weetart  I agree, these are magic! Just wish the effect lasted longer! Glad you enjoy using these too! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

C = collagen, an ingredient I’m still not convinced does much when applied topically (vs. consumed orally), but here we are with the JayJun Collagen Skin Fit Mask. 

 

Used this on top of AHA, BHA, and retinol tonight.Used this on top of AHA, BHA, and retinol tonight.

Notes: 

Spoiler

Claims: Hydrates skin; improves elasticity and firmness; reverses dullness. 

 

Ingredients: I chose this mask more for its ginseng than collagen, along with the high listing of niacinamide. I’m not impressed by the presence of anise (in the essence) and mistletoe (in the mask), as both can irritate skin. But I do like that ginseng and niacinamide are listed higher than both of those in these lists. I always love to see sodium hyaluronate, and there are other wonderful dry skin extras like calcium pantothenate (the salt form of vitamin B5), urea, a ceramide, squalane, imperata cylindrica root, and trehalose. Also, the essence step contains a stable form of vitamin C. 

Spoiler

Step 1 Essence: Water, Methylpropanediol, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Panax Ginseng Callus Culture Extract, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sea Water, Allantoin, Betaine, Calcium Pantothenate, Beta-Glucan, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Pyridoxine HCL, Tocopheryl Acetate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Hydroxyethyl Urea, Butylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Starch Octenylsuccinate, Maltodextrin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Silica, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance 

Step 2 Mask: Water, Methylpropanediol, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Niacinamide, Panax Ginseng Callus Culture Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ceramide NP, Squalane, Saccharomyces/Viscum Album (Mistletoe) Ferment Extract, Lactobacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Saccharomyces/Imperata Cylindrica Root Ferment Extract, Trehalose, Betaine, Allantoin, Butylene Glycol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Adenosine, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Diethoxyethyl Succinate, Disodium EDTA, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Phospholipids, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance 

Performance: The hyaluronic acid essence was a very thick clear gel, almost a jelly texture. There was so much, I could’ve easily used just 1/3 of the packet. But I used the whole thing and would up applying to to my neck, chest, shoulders, hands, and wrists. The sheet mask serum was a thinner gel; there was enough of it left behind in the step 2 sleeve to cover my neck and chest. 

 

This mask uses a very thin and soft cupra sheet that just needed a bit of snipping at the eyeholes’ inner corners and mouth hole corners for a good fit. The nose was too long but I folded it up rather than trim it shorter. There was a warm floral scent that wasn’t strong enough to make me sneeze, but was present throughout the 40 minute wear time. It took a good 3 minutes to massage and press all residual serum into my skin, leaving no pilling but quite a bit of tack. 

 

Results: Glowy, plumply hydrated, and moisturized skin with a mild brightness. All the deep lines under my eyes were softenedβ€”still visible of course, but softer looking due to plumped up skin. Thanks largely (I assume) to the squalane and ceramide in the mask serum, my skin said β€œpsh, we don’t need a moisturizer on top of this!” But I wanted to tame the tack, so I applied a very thin layer of Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion everywhere I’d applied the mask serum. 

 

This is definitely a cold weather mask. Maybe also one for very dry climates, or for folks with a full face of very dry skin. My oily zone wasn’t so sure about it while I was massaging in residual serum, so I tried to sweep some of the serum off my nose area and onto my dry-zone cheeks. An hour later, my nose seems to think β€œhuh, that serum’s not so swampy after all,” and my cheeks are super plush and happy. 

 

I’m pretty sure I’d used this mask before, but apparently it’d been a while because I couldn’t remember how my skin felt about it. Now I’m glad I have a box of these to use this winter. 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne This one had me intrigued when I saw the word collagen.  Great info

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne I need to start using more multi step masks, this one sounds like it turned out great

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  I'm always hearing good things about these multi-step JayJun masks and I'm happy to hear both steps were great! Glowy, plump, hydrated, moisturized and brightened definitely sound like wonderful results! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I ought to use my leet access to all academic journals to see if there have been any conclusive studies, maybe one day I'll remember too lol @WinglessOne 

 

At least it does the plumping job. I never get enough of that. Plump the wrinkles and dark circles away!!!!

RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Love herbivore prism glow facial mask! It’s amazing and leaves your face literally glowing!

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

@lindseyyfaye  Glad to hear you love it! I've only tried their Emerald oil, but it's something I can't be without! πŸ˜ƒ

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

Ooooh! I’ll have to look into that! @Shosh85

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

I haven't tried any of herbivore's masks @lindseyyfaye I should take a look sometime!
