Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That might be a touch of over exaggeration, but @itsfi @Shosh85 I just smelled it again, it's not as strong as hot cocoa, but it's like it has that after effect scent if that makes sense πŸ€”

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  That's awesome you're getting a cocoa scent, even if it's subtle! It has been a long time since I tried it, so I'm due for a refresher! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 πŸ€ž I hope you can smell it

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yep @Shosh85 I just purchased these from masksheets so idk if they reformulated them

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Nice pick for smoothing, @lmaster - I read it quickly as β€˜S for something’ and got a little laugh out of it😊 The banana one is so good!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

🀣 @eshoe that's actually a good one!! πŸ™Œ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  Mmmm cocoa!!! Too bad it bunched up. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather the fit was terrible lol but at least it wasn't too thick

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Mmm chocolate @lmaster. Too bad about the fit!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica the scent was subtle and satisfying πŸ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  I'm jealous you got any kind of cocoa scent at all! I feel like maybe I need to try this one again, because when I used it I got more of a clean & fresh scent - not bad at all, just not a yummy chocolate scent like I was hoping for. 🍫 The banana one is definitely my most favorite from the line - have you tried that one yet? 🍌

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It was definitely cocoa @Shosh85 not extremely strong but my nose could pull it out πŸ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

A 3-step mask from the wonderful @lmaster!

Naisture Aqua 3-Step Marine Collagen Face Mask

The first of the 3 steps is the "Intensive Ampoule." It has a lightweight and milky consistency and a light floral scent.
The second step is the sheet mask. It is super thin cotton fully saturated with serum that had a light floral scent. The fit was good - just a little long at the chin. It adhered very well and was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. When I removed it I patted in the leftover slightly tacky serum and applied step 3 - the "Refresh Essence." It is clear and is a thick jelly consistency. It had a very light aloe kind of scent, that I could only smell if I stuck my nose right up to the package. It had a cool and refreshing feel and didn't make the previous tackiness any more or less noticeable. The tackiness absorbed in about 10 minutes and my face was left feeling plump, moisturized and soft & smooth.

Normally I don't gravitate towards 3 step masks, because they're more work and there's usually at least one step I don't care for - but I actually liked all the steps in this one. I'd definitely use again and would repurchase if spotted at TJ Maxx/Marshall's! Thanks again, Lmaster!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oooh this one sounds very nice, @Shosh85! I’ve seen more than one Naisture love of @lmasterβ€˜s here, not surprised this one was a hit with you, too☺️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  I don't think I'm ever really super excited about multi-step masks, but I'm happy I was able to try this one out - it definitely turned out better than expected! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh wow, a 3 step you would purchase @Shosh85, that's high praise!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  Haha! Yeah, I really loved the results! It would've been perfect without the floral scent, but at least it was light! πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This 3-step sounds so interesting @Shosh85. I ordinarily think of ampoules as being more viscous or thicker than essences, and was surprised that it came before the essence, but your description of the consistencies of both of these supports the β€œapply products thinnest to thickest approachβ€œ to essences, serums and ampoules. On another note, could entirely be me, but when I first saw the pic of the mask, I thought the illustration on the front was that of a brain. 🧠 πŸ˜† I’m tired so it’s Very likely just me. 😝 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Ha! Exactly! When I first read what the steps were I was a little confused - I didn't expect a lightweight ampoule and a thick essence!

Funny you say that about the packaging- I thought it was a brain too! 🧠

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I was the same way @Shosh85 until I tried these, and then my whole multi step feelings changed for good πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ so happy you had a good experience with this one

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  There's only a few multi-step masks I enjoy using and this is definitely one of them! πŸ˜ƒ
