Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I love that packaging, @itsfi = very old Hollywood glam. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes @qusporkπŸ˜€ It's what drew me to the mask in the first place. 😍 I see that they have other skincare products as well, which makes sense. I may have to take a quick peek another day, maybe another day after I've used up a bit more of my stash. πŸ€£

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Gaahhhhh!  It's G&T week!  Now I know I need to plan out a mask!  I've done a few masks the last week or two, but just haven't gotten to posting.  Today I remembered to snap a pic and the masks were more memorable. My skin has been feeling dry the last few weeks and it's been showing after I apply my base products.  I don't really go out anywhere other than to my part time job and to see my nieces.  My nieces think anything with high amounts of glitter makes you extra pretty and couldn't care less about my skin, but I figured since I had to go into work today I wanted to look a little more moisturized (I swear my laugh lines around my eyes, which don't normally bother me have gotten worse the last few months... how do they know I turn 40?).

I popped open the Kiehl's Calendula & Aloe Soothing and Hydration Masque last week and finished it off this morning before my shower.  I always had this view of Kiehl's being this super cool brand that wasn't easily attainable but was somehow for the cool girls when I was in my teens/twenties.  Truth be told, having tried more of their products in my 30's... it's been kinda meh.  Does anyone have a standout product they love? Are my expectations just too high based on my memories of my 20 year old selfs desire to be a cool New York chick? This mask had a lovely scent to it, it didn't sting my dry skin (I usually only feel stinging when I'm extra dry in the winter).  It went on nicely and I kept it on while getting my shower iced coffee ready and the scent dissipated as it sat on my face.  It came off easily in the shower and while my skin did feel a bit better afterwards I'm not sure based on the daily use of this for a week that it had much effect.  I'm not mad at the mask by any means, and I'm glad to have tried it, but it's not likely to be a repurchase and I'm glad I had the smaller set sized pot.  I really should have all masks in this size before committing to a full size.  Could this have been better if my skin wasn't so dry right now? Maybe.  Would I suggest it to someone with normal skin just looking to have a relaxing mask experience.. I wouldn't dissuade them, but I'm sure there are a million other masks out there that are equally fun.
The When mask... now this was a beauty this morning.  I'm a fan of the light citrus scent as a relaxation piece (but I'm still torn knowing I shouldn't like fragrance in my skincare).  I'm a big fan of the bio cellulose.  I'm a big fan of how the mask sat on my skin like a second skin needing no adjustments. I'm a fan of how my skin enjoyed the serum on the mask, it felt more refreshed and looked much healthier after this mask.  I spent the morning before work perusing BIC and making a few purchases here and there online and I had to stop myself from buying more of these.  I have to use up more of what I have before I buy more sheet masks lol!  Birthday spending spree came pretty close to including more When masks though.  I'm always impressed with these, and once I do get my collection down a bit I'll be adding some without hesitation. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Eh, birthday splurging is totally a good decision @missjeanie. I will say I've found the Kiehl's Since 1851 Rare Earth Deep Pore Minimizing Cleansing Clay Mask 4.2 oz/ 125 mL to be one of the more effective wash off pore masks I've tried. Don't remember if I've tried other products but if so, they didn't make an impression.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  Oh, thank for reminding me about this one! I've a few heard others say they liked this one too! πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ @missjeanie 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 @ShortErica I actually checked last night and I do have a mini of this one as well.  Hopefully it's my hidden Kiehl's jam!  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

You'll have to let us know after you've tried it @missjeanie πŸ€ž

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Will do @ShortErica .  I have two or three wash offs I'm trying to finish up before the end of August, so I might get to fit it in once I check on my progress.... too many open products that have spilled from my cabinet onto my washroom sink.... ughhhh but I want to try everything all the time lol

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@missjeanie my stuff is hidden under the sink so I'm not as enticed to open it all. I feel like I try to limit myself to 2 like skincare products open at once. Sometimes it does make it not as fun though and I need to lighten up a bit. Another reason I'm not having too many open is so I can get through some samples. They pile up so fast! You'll get to it and I hope you like it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yeah for birthday shopping @missjeanie . I feel the same way about Kiehl's . I love minis. Wish all items came in them for trying out and to keep from getting bored with one product.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Getting bored is my thing @emaisgr8 ... I want to try it all out all the things but then feel bad having a 6oz pot of something open and not using it. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II


Yay! Happy Birthday month! πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰

Your nieces are too cute! I remember going through a glitter/shimmer phase! and I still get distracted with sparkly, shiny products!😍


I haven't tried too many Kiehl's products, but what I have tried, I agree, were all kinda "meh" - like they weren't really doing anything. πŸ€”

I really enjoyed that When mask too and it's actually my favorite from the line!The scent and results were both fantastic - so happy to hear you loved it!πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85  I generally love glittery makeup, just not on me. I feel for the most part I wear a very β€˜natural’ look, but the brights and glitters in my collection sure are getting love from the 5 and 7 year old who love all makeup! 
Ive got some more Keihl’s to try out but i feel let down from my expectations for sure. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

So glad to hear the When mask worked out so beautifully for you, @missjeanie. Happy Birthday month!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thanks @quspork ! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@missjeanie, happy birthday month! πŸŽ‚ Your nieces sound adorable. Mine also looooves sparkle. πŸ’– The When mask is a beauty! I hear ya on added fragrance - while I prefer it not be included, I can (and do) certainly appreciate a lovely scent. As for Kiehl's, I like the body moisturizer. Their masks are ones that I generally consider to be okay. Of all their masks, this calendula and aloe one is the one I gravitate most towards, but not so much for major hydration. I like it as a soothing mask that provides some hydration - a nice one if I've been out in the sun and need something gentle to soothe / calm the skin. It can be a nice one too, to use a day or two after a professional peel, but it's not a mask I'd consider a "must have." 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thanks @itsfi , Birthday this year was much more subdued than years past but I’m ok with that. I actually think I have a deluxe size of the Kiehl’s body moisturizer from a kit around here somewhere. I’ll give it a shot today! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@missjeanie, yeah, most birthdays are probably more subdued this year with all that is going on. I'm happy that you were able to do a birthday shopping spree! Glad you treated yourself. Let me know how you like the Kiehl's moisturizer. In the wintertime, I like to apply an oil after drying off after a shower, letting the oil absorb a little and and then sealing it all in with the Kiehl's. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi I tried the creme de corp body moisturizer yesterday and I'm kinda torn... There's no scent to it.  Now Iknow this is probably a good thing, as it'll let my perfume shine, and I shouldn't want to put fragrance on my skin.... but... I do love a lovely fragrance in my body products (dang that SDJ is so yummily scented).  I did feel like it actually gave a good layer of moisture to my skin though.  It was thicker than I'd anticipated and sank in nicely on my legs, on my decollate it appeared to leave a lot more glow than some of the others I've been using, though admittedly I'm new on the body moisturizer bandwagon.  I've got likely another 3 or 4 applications in the bottle and I'm curious to try it out longer term, first impression I'm feeling like this one is good for cooler months where I'm naturally more dry.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Another blind pick from last week



Unfortunately I can't remember how or where I received this mask,, im thinking TJ Maxx. It's a medium thickness sheet, fit was mmmk scent was rosemary herbal, clear bubbly serum, no lasting tackiness. I enjoyed the benefits of this mask very much. My skin felt instantly calmed and appeared refreshed more hydrated and plump. Depending on the price if I seen this again I would pick it up.
