Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ohh I'm loving these ingredients @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes @lmaster! I was happy when I took a look through the list and when I did some research on some of the ingredients I wasn’t familiar with. Lots of skincare goodies in this one. 😍

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Oh i still haven’t tried that one!   I kinda fell off the masking wagon recently and need to find a new time slot for masks. My masking session time allotment has been taken over by yoga sessions cause I’ve been such a ball of stress lately.  Yoga’s been helping A LOT!  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh @heartsmyface, I’m so sorry you are stressed. 😞 I’m glad you’re getting in time yoga - I find it to be helpful with stress as well. I really need to do it more regularly. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Firm, bouncy and hydrated sounds like my kind of mask! Happy to hear this one worked out beautifully for you! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ohhh, I think your skin will like this one @Shosh85. ♥️ I did some quick research on the brand’s other sheet mask offerings and they apparently have an hyaluronic acid based  one that is good. 🤩 I’ll hold off until I finish up the ones I’ve set aside for this year and make my way through some I picked up earlier this year, but after that . . . sheet mask shopping spree!!! 🛍 Well, sorta. I’ll have “rules” in place so my mask supply doesn’t get too out of hand again. 😬 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

G is for grape and Glow Recipe.   
i loooooove the scent of the pure smile grape essence masks!   Sad I’ve only got one more of this scent and the Japan conference isn’t happening (physically) this year.   I suppose this gives me an opportunity to actually use things up.  
the glow pop is fantastic.   This is my third tube.   How do they go so quickly?   


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@heartsmyface this sounds like a great combo! Hope you start feeling better!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@heartsmyface  Mmmm, I love grape scented masks! This one sounds great! It's too bad you won't be able to pick some more up for awhile, but I guess shopping your stash isn't such a bad thing - something I need to work on too! 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85   I’ve been saying I need to shop my stash for years so this is a good thing.  I don’t like that it’s being forced but hey, maybe we can get the mask hoarding under control and perhaps halved by Christmas?  🤞😁

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@heartsmyface, making a note to look for this mask after I get through some more masks and when the local boutiques reopen. Does your GR watermelon balm / scrub have a lot of scrubby granules in it? Mine seems more like a balm because it doesn't have much of the granules for any exfoliation.


Good to see you hearts! Hope you and the fam are doing well. Miss you! 🤗

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi   It’s slightly gritty upon application but not to the point I feel any heavy exfoliation.  It hasn’t replaced sugar scrubs or anything.  I think I might actually prefer it if they omitted the granules.  

2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

G for Gold, \"white Gold\" This stuff is sooooo thick! but does surprisingly soak in well & fast. I did have to bump the bottle on the countertop to get the thickness to drop. 😜 Theres enough in the packet for a good 2-3 masks, so i wanted to move the rest to a bottle to refrigerate. Leaving it on overnight so will update tomorrow. Next Morning Update: you do rinse it off in the morning, which i did with ease. Fit? its a thick cream Smell? its really nice! its familiar but cant place it? maybe sheet mask scent in cream form🤔 Consistency? soaks in good, without tack. You won't stick to your pillow or blankets WHICH is a huge plus for me! Ease of use? ok, no issues Would I  purchase/try again? it delivered on its promises. Yesterday was hot! and my face is feels restored & nourished. Happy to have more🤗

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes!! I'm in love with this mask @sonnydee 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It was a good performing mask @lmaster it just sounds gross!😬

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee   As much as I dislike the wording ‘donkey milk’ I have had nothing but good experiences with Products containing donkey milk.  I need to put this one on ‘the list’. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It just sounds so  gross! I kept passing up on it...maybe next time....but im glad now, i gave it a try @heartsmyface ah! "the list" ...ever growing & multiplying 😜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ohh, I love the Soo'Ae Donkey Milk Sheet Masks so I'm very excited to see how the sleeping mask version works out for you, @sonnydee!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It performed really well. I think i have the sheet masks too @quspork I bet they are especially perfect for wintertime

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  I've only heard positive reviews on this one! It definitely sounds like something my dry skin would like! Happy to hear you enjoyed it and it's great there's more for you to enjoy later! 👍😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I think your dry skin would love this one for any season @Shosh85 but yet ok enough for me to use with my oily skin as well. 🤗
