Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hahaha @sonnydee! ๐Ÿ˜‚  The yumminess of the Eminence mask is limited to its scent. Definitely not edible. Yeah, Iโ€™m not a fan of this SpaLife mask; I donโ€™t think Iโ€™d categorize  it as a good filler mask. It didnโ€™t cause any breakouts, redness or other skin irritation, which Iโ€™m very thankful for, but itโ€™s just not for me. Oh well. On to the next mask. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Tonightโ€™s masking, โ€œVโ€ for Vargas and Venofye:

First, the Kosas Kosasport LipFuel Hyaluronic Lip Balm Pulse is minty and long-lasting for a balm. Plus I use it outside to protect my lips in that hot summer sun. Great balm and another likely repurchase.

The Joanna Vargas Exfoliating Mask is new to me and these are my first impressions.

Scent: yummy! Was not expecting that. On board. There is a deliciously subtle fruity-citrus scent to this. 

Texture: scrubbies are a bit harsh, albeit teensy-tiny. I had to apply this fairly thin clay-like mask carefully, so as to not rough up my skin too much. 

Appearance: looks like the untaggable Kiehlโ€™s Cranberry & Turmeric mask.

There is a golden sheen to it, which is very pretty. Rinsing was easy, I used a muslin cloth. The granules are rather rough, so I was very careful when removing them. My skin, especially the forehead area, looked brightened after using.

 

The Venofye Royal Honey Sheet Mask was a mask I looked forward to trying because it was from trusted mask aficionado @Shosh85 and also because of its crazy $$$ price tag. I am always curious if the amount paid reflects value received.

So first thoughts. The scent-I was not expecting heavy honey based on Shosh85โ€™s reviews, and true to her word_there was little to be noticed. Once it was on my face, I seemed to sense a bit of honey, but there wasnโ€™t enough there for me to say.

This is a medium weight sheet mask. The unfolding was extraordinarily frustration-free. The fit- perfect. Really, the best cotton mask fit Iโ€™ve tried. I left it on for nearly 30 minutes before it became noticeably dry under my nose. There was a tiny bit of serum for reapplying, which I used. My skin was just the slightest bit tacky, and appeared brighter after using-I donโ€™t think that was the goal, but it happened and I will take it ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe like @emaisgr8 I had no idea about the crazy price tag! Or maybe I did but forgot. Thanks for that reminder. I enjoyed the mask too but there's no way I'm buying it with that price tag. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

An absolute treat to try, @ShortErica - but not necessarily to buy๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  I really liked the Venofye mask also.  I didn't realized the crazy price on it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@emaisgr8 I never would have tried it, if not for @Shosh85โ€˜s generosity! How fun, and it also makes me realize that most masks really should be in the $1-5 range. $50 is absurd๐Ÿ˜‚

WOW just looked Venofye masks up. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿค‘ 1 mask better fi...

WOW just looked Venofye masks up. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿค‘ 1 mask better fix everything wrong with my face immediately & for a month for it to be worth it. @eshoe

Re: WOW just looked Venofye masks up. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿค‘ 1 mask better fi...

I agree 1000%, @sonnydee ๐Ÿ˜‚

โ€ƒitโ€™s absurd.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

How much is a hefty price tag @eshoe just curious why it would be so expensive? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I think @Shosh85 found them to be $50 for a single sheet, @lmaster ๐Ÿ˜ณ I...I just donโ€™t know. Thatโ€™s about $45 more than I want to pay for a mask๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe wow!!! That's is crazy expensive

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This sounds like a nice masking combo, @eshoe. I'm intrigued by the Joanna Vargas even if the granules did seem a little harsh. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Itโ€™s such a different texture than I am used to, itโ€™s pretty runny @quspork. Bonus is that it should last me awhile that way!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe 
I'm happy to hear the Venofye mask worked out nicely for you! It's not one I'd pay $50 for, (let's be real, there's not any sheet mask I'd pay that much for ๐Ÿ˜ณ) but I did enjoy it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Iโ€™m with you on that, @Shosh85 - I start to question rationale around $5๐Ÿ˜‚ It was so fun to try though, many thanks๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ!

RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Summer fridays duh!

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

Oooh I enjoy a couple of their masks, @nikkayy0! Would love to know if you have a favorite:)

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

Jet lag for sure!!!

2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

E for a gift from the Exciting @eshoe Thank you! Fit?good, usual extra on the jaw line. Did have to adjust the part under the nose..its really wide Smell?kinda disappointed it didnt smell like something๐Ÿคทit had a lot to choose from after all! but no, typical sheet mask scent. Consistency?cool jelly & lots of it. Used the extra on hands, shoulders, more on my face after removing it after 30 min Ease of use?no trouble. could multitask just fine Would I  purchase/try again? yes, this was nicely hydrating after a hot lake day. An excellent mask to have if you want to change it from using aloe/ after sun masks. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š* * It does have AD in it.- 5th ingredient

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I love jelly masks after being in the sun. So soothing @sonnydee 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee I really would of thought it had a fruity scent ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
