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. 🤗

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This one sounds good @sonnydee! Love that there's enough in the packet for more masking. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on how it performed overnight.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Updated the post with my overnight thoughts @itsfi. happy to have used it. It was hanging out in my stash for far too long

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee, I’m sure I have a “few” masks that have been “hanging out in my stash for far too long” as well. But, you know, just a few. 😂 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

What?! Us?! No. 😉😁 @itsfi

blind pick


This is one of my favorites thanks to @ShortErica thin white sheet, clear serum, scent is fresh fit could be a little better in the eye area.
Here's some info from the Leaders dot com site Screenshot_20200807-233845.png


 i love how my skin feels so hydrated and nourished after using this mask. There will always be one in my stash

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  I really liked this one too! It's definitely great for dry skin! 😃 I think the only thing I didn't like about it was the scent - I picked up more of a floral smell, and floral is just not my favorite. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 I smelled this one again, It to me was on the line between fresh/ slight cleaning scent 🤷 I'd take floral though 😆


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Aww, glad you like this one @lmaster!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I do, I do!! I bought a few more since then @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster I think after my spree last year I kinda hope for finding 5 packs vs 10 packs. That way I have some to try and share but am not overwhelmed. Glad to hear you have more on back up.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I absolutely understand that! @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

The masks from this Leaders line are nice @lmaster! 💕 There’s a nourishing honey / propolis one (black packaging) that your skin may like during the colder months. 🍯 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I'll have to check that one out! @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Blind Picks: Multi-masking edition with a F for favorites 

(and a jump start on next week's "sheet mask focus" challenge)

I decided to do some more multi-masking last night and implemented another pseudo-random selection process. I grabbed three bags - in Bag #1, I put in a few wash-off masks that I knew would not irritate my skin as it recovers from a few spots. Bag #2 held a few pre-selected soothing sheet masks and Bag #3 contained several trial sized hair masks. Here are the trio of masks I drew:
blind picks.jpeg
Wash Off Mask:
Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask is one of my favorite wash-off masks. The slight warming from the mask feels nice and relaxing, especially as it's cool outside. After about 25-30 minutes, I rinsed the mask off in the shower and with a microfiber wash cloth, and my skin felt soft, bouncy and hydrated.
Hair Mask:
After applying the Farmacy mask, I worked a bit of the Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask, another favorite of mine, through the length of my damp hair and I very lightly apply whatever remains on my hands of the mask to the crown. Then I cover my hair with a shower cap and wrap a towel around my head to keep the mask from dripping everywhere. This also helps to retain some of the heat from the shower, which helps the ingredients from the hair mask better absorb into my hair. I leave the mask on for about 20 minutes before rinsing it out of my hair while washing off the Farmacy mask.
Sheet Mask:
The Face Shop Dr. Belmeur Daily Repair Soothing Gauze Sheet Mask could also be a mask for tomorrow / next week's challenge, as the sheet mask material is a thin-ish, gauze-like fabric made with a patented lanseal technology and that adheres beautifully to the skin, like a soft, warm embrace. There's a rather unique feel to the mask - somewhat bouncy, stretchy and squishy at the same time. The mask is heavily saturated with a clear, thick-ish, jelly-like gel-serum that feels wet, but not runny. Interestingly, once you apply the mask, it feels like the gel-serum almost transforms into a more watery-like though still viscous essence - as if upon contact with the warmth of the skin, the gel thins itself out. Also interesting is the scent which seems to be light blend of fresh, subtly medicinal and slightly citrus-y scents. 
Directions call for 20 minutes of wear time, but there's enough serum for double that amount of time. I left it on for 30 minutes and there was still quite a bit of serum remaining on my face when I removed the sheet. I also get a very slight tacky-to-the-touch feel to the skin immediately after it's absorbed all the essence, but it doesn't linger. As for the results, my dehydrated, combo skin that's slowly recovering from a bad reaction to a concealer could not be happier - the two largest and angriest spots near my chin look noticeably less angry, less red, and my skin feels hydrated and moisturized and looks refreshed and less dull.  This mask really does calm, soothe, nourish, refresh and brighten the skin. In keeping with the letters of the week, it's an F for fabulous and a U for the ultimate skin savior for dehydrated, dry, sensitive and irritated skin. 
This mask is a definite repurchase - in fact, I would break my sheet mask no buy to do so, but fortunately I don't have to - I picked up a couple of these earlier this year, not realizing I already had one! Ha! I'd like to say I must have subconsciously knew I would like it and that's why I picked up multiple back-ups, but I'm sure I just forgot I already had this particular mask from the line. 🙂
