Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

H is for heavenly after weeks of long days and nights.
S is for soothing and superb sleep aid.
Iโ€™m sure these steam eye masks can be found in Asian drugstores or grocery stores.
Ahhhh...lavenderAhhhh...lavender
Spoiler
All the masks from this Dewytree line are marvelous and I owe my introduction to this lavender varietal to the fabulous @sonnydee - thank you, thank you! ๐Ÿค— The lavender scent on this Dewytree It's Pure Lavender Mask is perfectly soothing for winding down after days of sitting in front of a computer ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป. When I was younger, I didnโ€™t care for the scent of lavender but nowadays, I find it a relaxing scent that I welcome (so long as itโ€™s not too overpowering). Thereโ€™s a certain calm and relaxation from taking in the scent on this one. It's much like and exquisitely complements the calming "ahhhh" feeling from the second skin fit that the Tencel material from this mask brings. It gently clung to my skin and stayed on for the entire half hour I had on the mask, hugging the contours of my face and sealing in the goodness from the clear watery serum that saturates the mask. Despite my tiredness last night, it was a 30 minutes well spent. After pressing in the excess serum to help it along with absorption, my skin looked less dull and more hydrated, supple, and lively. This morning, my complexion looked refreshed ... and I'm sure my coworkers who had to see me in person or on calls are very grateful for that. ๐Ÿคฃ
 
To keep with the calming effects from the lavender, I reached for the lightly lavender scented and nourishing Milk Makeup Melatonin Overnight Lip Mask to keep my lips soft and moisturized overnight. I really like the consistency and wear of this lip mask; it's neither too slippery nor too thick. To help make my drifting off to sleep more relaxing, I went with the lavender version of an old faithful, Megrhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask. I love these eye masks. ๐Ÿ’– The warming action is wonderful for creating a sense of calm, relaxation, and peacefulness. I donโ€™t know what it is about these steam eye masks but they are seriously perfect for helping me to unwind. A definite go to - steam eye masks are superhero skincare beauties in my book!
 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Iโ€™m sure you always look fabulous! And your coworkers are lucky to have you!!  I need to check out this dewytree line. Adding to my watch list!!! I also love those steam eye masks. I take a hot bath every night and once and a while after I slip one on and relax!! I must use one soon. I think the only reason Iโ€™m avoiding them right now is because the back of my ears are a tad irritated from my masks. But awesome little treats. Iโ€™ve tried to get my husband to try them also but was given a hard no. Oh well more for me!!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Awww, youโ€™re so sweet @ather; thank you for always being so kind! ๐Ÿค— Oh my goodness, yes, this whole mask wearing has caused a lot of skin irritation. ๐Ÿ˜” But I tell myself itโ€™s a small price to pay. Safety first. Do you think the steam eye masks would stay on if you used them while lying down but didnโ€™t use the ear loops? 

How interesting? Did your husband say why he didnโ€™t want to try them? Is it because of how they look? I saw they made a man version ๐Ÿ™„ Iโ€™m sure itโ€™s just the pattern on them thatโ€™s different. I donโ€™t know that for a fact though. Note to self - โ€œSelf, pick up the โ€œman versionโ€ after your no buy to test out.โ€ Itโ€™s for research. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  I tried them while laying down without the loops on and it didnโ€™t give the best feeling. Better when the loops are on. I should try one tomorrow night. I donโ€™t leave my house much on my days off so my ears may feel better. Iโ€™ve ordered new masks as well. They are suppose to feel way better so that may fix my problem too. I agree Iโ€™d much rather wear a mask and protect myself and others then not wear one at all. Some places in my province are making masks mandatory which I totally agree with. I just wish they didnโ€™t irritate my ears so much. I have a few that go over my head but they fall down or push on my nose a lot and hurt. So I stuck to the ear ones!!! 

He didnโ€™t say why. Iโ€™ll ask him again next time I use them. Iโ€™ll keep my eyes on the lookout for the man version too. I actually saw that they have a chamomile version. I need to test it. I really enjoy chamomile tea. Maybe Iโ€™ll have a masking night theme!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather, I canโ€™t imagine wearing the masks for as long as you and your coworkers do. Thank you! Youโ€™ve probably tried it but do the headbands with the buttons help a little with the ear irritation? Yeah, Iโ€™ve been figuring out when and which different types of fabric on masks work better for me. A learning curve. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Yea the headbands help but they slide down my hair too. Itโ€™s to soft I guess. Oh well. Iโ€™m sure the elastic on my new ones will help! I think itโ€™s more the texture of the ones I have. My husband says his is really comfortable but he only wears it into places not all day. Iโ€™ve actually used his and itโ€™s super comfortable lol oh well! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather, I really hope your new masks are more comfortable. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This looks like a really great calming masking session, @itsfi! That Dewytree was in my cart for a recent purchase before it went out of stock, so I'll have to keep an eye out for when it comes back. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork, these are good to have on hand. I just saw that theyโ€™re back in stock at masksheets (dot) com. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Another creative work of art @itsfi so calming sounds perfect right about now

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you @lmaster! ๐Ÿค— Iโ€™ve been reaching for masks that are soothing and calming these days. Weโ€™ve been in a heat wave so I havenโ€™t been burning any candles. Itโ€™ll hopefully cool down tomorrow so I can bring them back out; itโ€™s calming and therapeutic having the house smell nice; or at least the area around my work desk.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee, no need for words; we have emojiiโ€™s. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿฅฐ Thank you so much for gifting me these Dewytree masks - such a beautiful line of sheet masks. ๐Ÿ˜ This one paired so nicely with the other lavender items I had. A good and welcome way to put me at ease. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi The lavendar mask has gorgeous packaging.   I love lavender as well

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@tjffc, yes!! Even the packaging provides a certain amount of calm. ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Looks and sounds like a the perfect pre-bedtime masking session!

Love those steam eye masks! They are great for headaches!  ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85, it was a nice way to unwind and relax a bit before getting to bed. Love these steam eye masks; they're phenomenal! ๐Ÿ’–

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  those steam masks are superheroโ€™s for sure! I canโ€™t thank you enough for introducing me. So wonderful during allergy season and during those chilly nights! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I just gave a box of the steam eye masks to one of my colleagues @missjeanie. Gotta spread the love!! ๐Ÿ’–

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

More S and H from this week:

 

S for G9 Skin Strawberry Milk Bomb Mask

I wanted to like this. It's got the slightly thicker woven cotton sheet that I love because it's so soft against the skin. There was plenty of serum soaking the sheet. But. That scent! Oof. I don't know that I can even place it. Maybe there was a hint of chemical strawberry but overall it was just overpowering and unpleasant. I ended up only having the sheet on for about 5 minutes because of that, so no real results to speak of. I'll stick with Apieu for fruity milk masks in the future. 

 

And for H the Biobelle #HappyHour mask  

 

IMG_20200821_144131.jpg

This is one of the older versions of Biobelle which I think a lot of us have expressed a preference for over the newer versions. The sheet is comfortable with plenty of serum, a good fit, and has great adherence. I had this one on for quite a while since it was so well saturated. Removal left just a bit of tack and had my skin feeling hydrated and plump. I think this is my last one of the Happy Hour version and only one of a couple of the older versions left in my stash, so that makes me sad. The newer ones are ok, but not nearly as nice as these were. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork sorry to hear about the scent! I wish I could of tried an older version ๐Ÿ˜ฃ
