Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Me too @Shosh85!!! I feel like starting a writing campaign, sending emails / letters to brands of well loved / favorite sheet masks to let them know how much the sheet mask is looooooved and to implore them to never ever discontinue it. ๐Ÿ˜† Iโ€™m only partially joking about this. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Iโ€™ve had too many sheet masks I absolutely adore go poof! Never to be heard from again. And without any warning so I could stock up and share with you and others that they are being DQโ€™ed so you can stock up as well. It all seems so wrong. ๐Ÿฅบ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Mmmmmm love love grape!! @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  Me too! Such a delicious scent! ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85  Sounds like an awesome mask! Is this line of masks discontinued? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather  Yes, unfortunately it seems they are discontinued! I'm so sad, because Peripera makes some of my most favorite masks! ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This weekโ€™s 3-step mask from Missha, thanks to the recent motm ๐Ÿ“ฆ 


My skin has been so disagreeable this week. Iโ€™ve had a few blemishes along my jawbone and dots havenโ€™t been helping, so I was hoping some exfoliating would help. This was the second (or third?) time Iโ€™ve tried the Youth To The People Yerba Mate Resurfacing + Exfoliating Energy Facial with Enzymes + Niacinamide 2...., and I still donโ€™t have any strong feelings about it one way or another. Lots of tiny granules, so I was extra careful when rinsing off.

This Missha 3-Step Nutrition Mask starts with Essence, which Iโ€™ve come to appreciate more as Iโ€™ve made it part of my skincare routine. It seemed superfluous at first, but thatโ€™s how I felt about serum a few years ago, too๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ I think as a first step, itโ€™s a great choice. This essence felt more like a rich serum, with a clean laundry-type scent. Step two, the mask, was a thicker, soft and stretchy fabric that felt lovely but fell away from my face to the point that I removed it after about 15 minutes of struggling. My skin felt quite soft and hydrated. Since step three was the hydrating cream, I went through my final steps and then applied it last. It was pleasant enough, no irritation so that was a plus. Itโ€™s not a mask I would repurchase, but I loved having the opportunity to try it, so a very big thank you and hug to the person who included it in the box, it was greatly appreciated!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe that's what I love about motm, getting to try new ones out ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Me too, @lmaster. Itโ€™s all about the adventure, doesnโ€™t matter if they are good or badโ˜บ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Too bad you donโ€™t have thoughts on the YTTP Iโ€™ve been debating it for a bit. I might have to see if I have a sample. I totally agree with you about serums. A few years ago I didnโ€™t use them but now I canโ€™t get enough!!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@atherI guess as much as I love physical exfoliatants, I realize they are not a good match for my normal/dry skin. I love them, but tend to overuse them as a result. The granules in this one are small, but noticeably rough. If your skin can handle it, this might be a brilliant fit for you. Itโ€™s fun to use and I love the brand overall; the Youth To The People Superfood Air-Whip Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid 2 oz/ 60 mL is my all-time favorite daytime moisturizer.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  In the summer I might be able to get away with a physical exfoliate but in the winter I think I am to dry!! I will definitely check that moisturizer out!! Thank you!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I love that MOtM allows us to try something we might not want to purchase ourselves. This sounds nice @eshoe. Hope your face calms down. I've been having some blemish issues too. Ugh!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes @ShortErica Iโ€™ve had fun trying new masks. They havenโ€™t always panned out, but isnโ€™t that how it works, at least in part? Itโ€™s the most fun trying them, if they arenโ€™t a god fit, then I just know what I donโ€™t like/need ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  All three steps on this one sound pretty decent! I'm happy MOTM gave you a chance to try it out! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

They were good, @Shosh85! Iโ€™ve been using the Missha Time Revolution and along with the CosRx, they have helped me see what a difference an essence can make in plumping the skin. 3 step masks used to seem like a lot of work, but I kinda donโ€™t mind them anymore๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Glad you're enjoying the CosRX! I'm lovin' the stringy-sliminess of the snail products! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Me too, @Shosh85. Itโ€™s kind of a game, if I can apply it to both cheeks without a thread leaving its mark across my face๐Ÿ˜ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

A 3 step gifted my the ever so thoughtful @eshoe 



Step 1 is a peeling gel, I liked this one better than the boscia version, it did leave my skin feeling softer. Step 2 is a thin white sheet, the scent was light and hardly noticeable and highly saturated with clear serum. Fit was pretty good, and I have started to perform surgery now and I'm kinda kicking myself for being too lazy in the past because it does really help!! After I removed the mask, my skin felt nicely hydrated! Step 3 is a balancing gel, this is a step im not familiar with, I have never used a balancing gel before. I noticed after applying it, my skin turned pretty matte. I think that is pretty beneficial for someone who has oily skin in the summer and wants to wear makeup. Overall I enjoyed this 3 step mask and would repurchase if I came across it, thanks again lovely!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

So happy to hear this one worked out for you, @lmaster! I really enjoyed it, too:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe it's a winner absolutely!! Thank you ๐Ÿค—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

With the balancing gel step, it sounds like this might make a good morning mask (for someone not too rushed in the a.m.), @lmaster.
