The print on this package reminds me of the Ruth Asawa forever stamp, @sonnydee . 




Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

๐Ÿ•ต i can see why that would remind you @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee sorry to hear you had such trouble

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  I haven't used this specific mask, but I have used half-face bubble masks before (I know Berrisom makes one) - and when it comes to bubble sheet masks I actually like these more because you have a better chance of not getting it in the eyes (though, it sounds like you did anyway๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป) 

yes, @Shosh85 probably as I was rinsing but this bubbled...

yes, @Shosh85 probably as I was rinsing but this bubbled up so didn't matter if this was a half mask or not

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I had no idea Goodal made a bubbling mask, @sonnydee but boy, does it sound like they like their bubbles! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I had a opaque bubble beard @quspork 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee Huh, that's interesting... I'm not sure I've seen many bubbling half-masks. Then again, I haven't used many Goodal masks. Sorry this didn't work out for you! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This is the first half mask I have seen @WinglessOne ๐Ÿคท you win some & you lose some. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh nooooo!! I canโ€™t believe I sent you a bubble mask. Sorry @sonnydee. And it was a messy one, too. Ack! Why do I have this feeling that I didnโ€™t even know it was a bubble mask. I think another G is for โ€œGood grief, Fi!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚ Youโ€™re a good sport! Itโ€™s unlikely youโ€™ll be getting more bubbling masks from me as Iโ€™m not going to buy anymore bubble sheet masks (or well, that I know of - we both know Iโ€™m probably going to pick up some bubble sheet masks without reading the back to find out what it is. ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

No worries ๐Ÿค—@itsfi i thought it was a mud mask. No where on here it mentions bubbles. I dont mind bubble masks. Spalife & TCS both make good ones that aren't as messy.

T is for Take Two (aka "Do Over")
G is for gold (rose gold in particular) and "giving it a good ol' college try"
Sheet Mask Focus: Bubble sheet mask

Sheet Mask:
Bubble masks and I don't get on super well. It really is a case of "it's not you, it's me." If I go for a bubble mask, it's usually of the wash off varietal and I have a strong preference that it is tinted as it helps to keep it away from the eyes by making it easier to see where it will foam up.  I used the JMsolution 24K Gold Premium Peptide Mask Rose Gold Limited Edition in the spring and it was a hard pass for me. But alas, I have another in my mask bin so here we are. 
To give it a fair second shake, I decided to make some adjustments to how I approached the mask in the first place. Since being overwhelmed with bubbles is a concern of mine with these types of masks, my plan this go around was to perform a little mask surgery immediately upon removing the mask from the pouch - a feat made slightly more challenging because the opening on this one is rather narrow. To address that, I just opened it from the bottom. Easy fix there. 
Then it was time to turn the mask from a one-piece sheet mask to two pieces. Instead of cutting the mask horizontally so that there's a top and bottom piece, I decided to cut the mask in half vertically, giving me a piece of the mask for the left side of my face and one for the right. Much of my fit issues with sheet masks has to do with the area between the inner corners of the eyes - it's usually too wide so parts of the mask hover uncomfortably close to my tear ducts. I was hoping this would address that or at least put more space between mask and my eyes. And, it did. Though I wouldn't say it revolutionized the way I view bubble sheet masks. That would be asking for a lot.
Results-wise, my face felt cleansed, soft and smooth - my complexion had that fresh / refreshed look to it. As with most bubble masks, certain parts of my face felt dry as well; it wasn't unbearable, but it was noticeable. As I mentioned, that's not an uncommon result for me so I quickly followed up with a hydrating and moisturizing skincare routine after rinsing off the serum from the bubble sheet and then I topped off my evening routine with the Sephora Collection Water Gel Mask as an overnight mask before climbing into bed. The immediate results from the bubble sheet mask carried over to next morning and it seemed using the Sephora Collection Water Gel Mask as a sleep mask helped to keep my skin from feeling dry and tight. 
Overall, I'm happy with the results, but it's unlikely I'll repurchase either of these masks. I have a couple more bubble masks to get through, and the design of both of those masks seem more likely to be something that I, dare I say it, would like, so it'll be interesting to see how they perform. But those are for another day. 
Wash Off / Sleeping Mask:
The Sephora Collection Water Gel Mask contains amino acids  and claims to hydrate and refresh. My skin is dehydrated year-round, so it generally doesn't get enough hydration from gel type masks like this one, except in the warmest part of the summer. However, I've found that these gel masks do make decent sleeping masks - as the last step of a moisturizing skincare routine. The night I used this mask was warmer than most nights we've been having so the conditions were great for seeing how this one performs. In a nutshell, not bad, but not a standout for me either.  The scent on this one isn't horrible, but it is stronger and more perfume-y than I prefer. That, coupled with the fact that I'd be limited to when it would be put to optimal use makes it a pass for me in terms of a repurchase.  For my part, with it looking like the weather will cool down sooner, I've been working through the product by repurposing it for my hands and feet, with the occasional use, like the other night, as a sleeping mask. Even though it's not hydrating enough on its own for me, I do think someone with oily or oilier skin might enjoy this one. 
Lip Care:
Most lip products work pretty well for me; it's not often that I come across one that just doesn't work for me, but these two, StackedSkincare Hydrating Lip Peel and the Sara Happ Sweet Clay Lip Mask are ones that I haven't been able to get on board with, after several tries and through different seasons. The Sara Happ I'm surprised by as I love pretty much all of her products. ๐Ÿ™ Now, I'm just trying to find the best way to re-purpose these two items.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi I kinda like bubble masks ๐Ÿคท as long as my skin doesn't get too dry

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, what is it about them that you like? The results? The bubbling? I find my skin does better with them in the summer when itโ€™s more combo. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi I do like the bubbling and the clean feeling I get after using, I have used one recently that was too drying, but the others I have tried have been a good experience,, mostly ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi @I agree - bubble masks always seem to be more effort than they are worth 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Kim888, the novelty of them wears off pretty quickly. ๐Ÿ˜† Iโ€™m reminded of that whenever I use one. If only I remember that when Iโ€™m in the store or shopping for sheet masks online. Ha!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Bubble masks... ughhh. I mean I get the 'fun' factor, but I generally now think they're more for people who mask occasionally or for a girls night in laugh kinda thing.  I'm always scared to get them in my eyes too.  I'd never have thought of cutting it down the middle like that, glad it worked out okay!

That Sara Happ lip mask... I kept mine out on my counter for three months trying to get myself to use it more.  Let us know when you find a repurpose... I need one too lol

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@missjeanie, itโ€™s all fun and games until those bubbles get in my eye!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚  Have you seen (or used) the Elizavecca wash off bubble mask (not a sheet mask). There are photos and videos of how it foams up all over the userโ€™s face - it looks like a gray cloud over the face and all you see are eyes and lips. Most of the comments are  โ€œcoolโ€ or โ€œwowโ€ and all I can think of is how fast and hard my heart would be beating if it bubbled up like that on me.


Iโ€™ll let you know about the Sara Happ. I have a couple of ideas of how to get through it but need to actually see if any of those will make it better.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi funny enough that was the first bubble mask I've ever tried.  A guy I was dating had a tub of it.  I remember seeing it in his washroom and wondering "who the heck have you had over that's leaving a mask behind??" This is a guy who's idea of grooming was a bottle of two in one shampoo and body wash and then a face wash, whichever one was on sale at the grocery store.  Turns out he was trying to get rid of some acne and was too shy to ask for help so he bought this off amazon or the like.  We both did a mask together then I got him set up with a basic routine (which I recently asked about... still follows it to a T).  I remember laughing as all the bubbles kept growing!  I think the bubble masks are great for things like this, people having a laugh, enjoying the experience.  I'm not convinced they're amazing for great skincare though.  You just brought back an awesome memory!
