Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster Not that I noticed.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Samtian that's what I thought when I seen the packaging but wasn't certain

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That's shame that it was so meh for you, @Samtian

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork Thanks. Win some lose some. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yea, yea. We know. I love this mask. They have came out with a smaller & cheaper tube though! I couldnt tag the specific one but its $35. Might have to get that sooner than later I would love the tube form! And I'm trying to just kill the instamud. Its fun. 


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

A tube is definitely the way to go with this one. Unfortunately, I've had issues with it drying out in the tub. Glad it works for you, @sonnydee!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yea me too. When that would happen I would just add a tad of water & mix - good as new 🤗@quspork 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II


I got the GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD® Charcoal Instant Treatment Mask 3.5 oz/ 100 g as a sample and loved it!  It's pretty expensive so not something I'd buy unless there was a sale.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@RAWRitsRED they have smaller sizes- the mini jar is $25 & will last you a surprisingly good amount of time. But you can accumulate quite a stash with gwp, promos, etc. I actually haven't had to BUY any in a few years. -until I saw the mini tube. I ordered it today😍🖤 cantbewithout

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II


Ooh, I'll have to get a mini in a few days when the sale starts!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oooh. SuperMud is in tube form now @sonnydee?! 😍 I have to pick that up before my “no buy” starts. Tagging @Shosh85 - it’s in tube form!!! More hygienic and less messy! ♥️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi @sonnydee  Oooh nice! I think everything should be in tube form! 😃👍

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

F is for The Face Shop


Sheet Mask

I've been bombarding parts of my face with some heavy-duty zit zapping skincare products and for the most part, the few ugly, large acne spots that have crept up are being effectively treated, if causing me some heartache. Sigh. 😞 To soothe my skin and add a little brightness to my complexion, I reached for The Face Shop Bio-Cell Brightening Face Mask, a soft, thin, gel-like bio-cellulose sheet mask geared toward brightening the complexion. The mask feels cool against my skin as it melds easily to the contours of my face, and wraps comfortably like a blanket around my face, the slightly herbal and very lightly citrus scented essence infused in the mask. 
Glutathione is the star ingredient in this particular sheet mask - it is a non-enzymatic antioxidant that is naturally found in the body but like most things, gradually depletes from our body as we age. It is a tripeptide that works to diminish the visible signs of aging and environmental damage and helps to brighten the skin by inhibiting the production of melanin-producing enzymes. This seemed like a good go-to mask for the post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that inevitably follows my breakout. After 20 minutes, my skin felt soft, looked hydrated, refreshed, and brightened. My acne spots are less red and even the largest of them seemed less angry. The mask did what it claimed to do and is one that I would repurchase. Thank you to the wonderful @keana1 for sending this lovely mask my way!

Lip Balm

Laneige Lip Glowy Balm - Gummy Bear is a lightly moisturizing, pinky/purple lavendar tinted balm, the consistency of which reminds me more of a cross between a gloss and a balm than a pure balm. It glides on smoothly, makes my lips soft and adds a light sheen to them. It's a nice complement to the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask - Gummy Bear, which I used last night and which has a thicker, slightly tacky consistency like the other flavors in the brand's lip sleeping mask collection.  @SportyGirly125  likened it to grape candy, and keana1 said raisin candy. I had a harder time picking up on the grape flavor; whenever I smelled both products, all I could think of was gummy candy, no particular flavor. sportygirly125 put her detective skills to work and uncovered gummy lifesavers and I think that is spot on! 😊

I can't seem to tag the new LE Gummy Bear flavor . . . 

LANEIGE Lip Glowy Balm Grapefruit 

LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Original 



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi now you did get both the balm and lip mask in the gummy bear flavor? If so do they both smell the same to you?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, I did pick the lip sleeping mask and the lip glowy balm in the same gummy bear flavor. Some have picked up a grape 🍇 candy flavor but my nose hasn’t gotten grape yet. 🤷🏻‍♀️ But with the peach lip glowy balm, I also didn’t pick up a peach scent either. The scent is more pronounced in the lip sleeping mask and last night it smelled sweet and fruity-ish.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi ok good to know! I did pick up the grapefruit balm, the gummy bear mask and the sweet candy I believe lip mask

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, ohhh, you picked some good ones!! The grapefruit lip balm is my favorite scent of the bunch! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi I really love the grapefruit lip mask, so I figured I'd go ahead and try the balm 😊

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I've definitely been curious about the new flavor @itsfi - interesting to hear it's grape-y

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Kim888, I know others have picked up a grape scent; I can’t seem to for whatever reason. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Maybe it’s because I associate grape with the flavor of children’s cough syrup and I don’t get that scent from it. I can pick up a sweet fruit scent.
