Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I like your 2 masks approach @WinglessOne. Sometimes when I use a mask I get the "why did I love this before?" or "why was I so critical before?" feelings and disconnect. So many things can impact a masking experience. Now I'll always be buying in pairs when I get to mask buy again. πŸ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It’s good to hear about Jolse @WinglessOne; I’ve never ordered from them but see them pop up elsewhere with positive reviews. I like to try new sites once in a blue moon, though I tend to space those purchases out. 

We were just talking about Jeni’s today, I think two months is too long to go without good ice cream😁

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  There's never a bad time to buy more Jeni's! Enjoy your next batch of delicious ice cream! 

 

I've yet to have a problem with a Jolse order. Their free trackable shipping minimum is $40 USD. And they always add freebies to orders. (My last order contained the most freebies I've ever gotten from them.) They're a good retailer to consider. πŸ™‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you for the feedback on Jolse, I think I will take a peek next time I need to make a mask order. Freebies are fun, especially when you don’t know what they are, and even if you are receiving them!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne, the masks from this line are beautiful - packaging and results-wise! I really enjoy a lot of the Shangpree skincare products as well. It's great that this one scored so high for you! πŸ˜ I'll be interested to know which of the 3 masks in this series you like best. Staying tuned...

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Very interesting info on salmon @WinglessOne gorgeous packaging!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  I love your review and the packaging on this is so pretty.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  Ooooh, I love the packaging 😍 This mask sounds wonderful! - yet another line I need to try out! I've tried a couple masks with salmon sp3rm and really enjoyed them! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I'm not on theme with this one, but here's the Dewytree Quince Mask!

Marketed as a single-ingredient mask that helps with balancing oil and "cultivates clear skin," this ended up being a lovely mask that I wouldn't hesitate to use again. It had a watery serum and a comfortable sheet made of a blend of eucalyptus, cotton, and seaweed. It had a light fruit scent and stayed moist for a good 20 minutes. I'm not sure if it really helped balance my oil, but skin did feel nicely hydrated after removal of the sheet. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hydrating is always nice. I wonder if over time it would help more with oil @quspork πŸ€·

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That's definitely a possibility, @ShortErica. Unfortunately for me, I am far too fickle with masks to use just one for an extended period of time so those long term effects are lost on my skin, haha! πŸ™ˆ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

There are some 10 pack boxes I want to try it with, just to use them up but I agree with you @quspork - better and more fun to use a variety.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

A light fruit scent sounds wonderful! @quspork 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Very refreshing, @lmaster!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork  Good to see someone review one of these Dewytree 100 mask varieties. I've considered trying the cica mask from this line. Glad the quince variety works for you! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I think the Cica one would be right up your alley, @WinglessOne - no extraneous ingredients, just pure Centella Asiatica extract. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork Dewytree makes some nice masks, and it sounds like this was no exception! Glad you enjoyed it! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

They do have some nice ones, @Shosh85. I have the birch from this line to try too- so excited to see how it works out. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This mask sounds wonderful @quspork! 🀩 I’ve been impressed with Dewytree sheet masks. Making a note about this one ... for when my mask count is less than triple digits. πŸ˜‰πŸ€ͺ

 

You are very much on theme! V is for vitamin C. Quince is a good source of vitamin C! ☺️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ha- true, Vitamins always sneak in there , @itsfi!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I multimask almost everyday, so just thought I'd share my normal Wednesday routine.

 

I start with an intense exfoliation or peel. Right now I'm using Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask 5 oz/ 148 mL right now. 

Spoiler
Whenever I sniff this in the jar, I'm like, "Yay, pumpkin pie." But when its on the face its a little too sickeningly sweet. It easily applies, especially with a brush.
I like that it isn't as intense as other sort of peel masks, I can leave on closer to the 7 min max recommended wear time. It only stings a little bit when I put it on (and usually only around the nostrils) and this goes away quickly.
It definitely helps smooth my skin, but isn't my favorite of these types of masks. Would use again if I got in a set though.

I follow up with a hydrating mask. I'm close to empty on the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask 5 oz/ 150 mL 

Spoiler
I am SO glad to be close to empty on this. It is not a good mask, IMO. First of all, it stings too (especially around the nostrils). It is almost greasy. It does hydrate a bit, but not as much as I'd like. One more use and it is done!

After the rest of my skincare routine, I end the night with a sleeping mask and lip mask. Right now I'm using the Origins Mini Drink Upβ„’ Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask with Avocado & Swiss Glacier Water 1 oz/ 3... and the old formula bite beauty lip mask.

Spoiler
This is one of my favourite sleeping masks. It smells so lovely and tropical. I like how it is creamy but liteweight, so on my normal to dry skin, it sinks in a little but isn't too greasy. Its great for the warmer months but isn't quite enough for the winter.

We all know the old school agave lip mask is amazing. I haven't had a chance to get the reformulation.
