Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahaha @heartsmyface! Just look at that face!!! This one sounds good - I don't recall using a Tencel mask from this brand. Making a note to look into this one. The ingredients list looks good and I love the results - plump hydrated skin!! ๐Ÿ’– I'm sure I will recognize this mask if I see it on the store shelves. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface awww that's too cute!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh, this mask packaging is hilarious, @heartsmyface!! Glad it was such a winner!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface  Oh my gosh, I remember this one! It is hilariously cute! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Happy to hear you got some great results!

Peripera Juice Time Apple Sheet Mask ๐Ÿ

This is a super thin and transparent cotton sheet mask that was drenched with a clear watery serum. The scent was mostly just your standard sheet mask kind of scent with just a hint of a green apple smell - which is probably because apple is so far down in the ingredients. The fit was good โ€“ just a little too wide at the temples and a tiny bit long at the chin. The mask adhered well and was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. There wasn't any tackiness after removing and my face looked a smidge brighter and skin felt soft, smooth, moisturized and had a nice glow.

I really enjoy using this one and love the results! I will definitely keep repurchasing all the masks from the Juice and Smoothie lines for as long as I can!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Awesome review!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

These peripera ones look and sound so good @Shosh85! I love apple masks too! I have one of these and will be sure to savor my masking sesh. Why do they discontinue the good ones?!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I love these masks so much! I don't know why they always gotta mess up a good thing! ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Apples definitely make me think of fall! @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Me too, especially caramel/candy apples!! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85   Apple, peach and strawberry are scents that I absolutely want to linger on the mask for the whole wear.  Iโ€™m glad you liked this one.  Is there significant threat of them not making them anymore?  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface  Mmmm, I just love fruity scents in general! ๐Ÿ˜‹

@WinglessOne was the one that informed me of the discontinuation of Peripera masks, and since then I've been trying to load up from the sites that still sell them. It makes me sad, because it's one of my most favorite mask brands! ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface @Shosh85  Peripera's parent company, Clio, has done some brand restructuring. Peripera is now focused on cosmetics and no longer creates skincare. Goodal is now the skincare-focused brand in Clio's lineup. So if you love Peripera masks and want more of them, buy them whenever you see them somewhere. There most likely won't be more produced. ๐Ÿ˜ž 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  I'm not happy about this at all! ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜  I've honestly liked the Peripera masks a lot more than the Goodal masks tried. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Who knows though, maybe Goodal will come out with some new masks that I'll love.๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I kept forgetting if I've tried many (or any) Goodal masks, so I added 3 to my last YesStyle order. I hope they're at least decent. I wish Goodal had just taken over Peripera's existing mask lines, but oh well. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  I don't remember a whole lot about the ones I tried since it was before my note saving days, but I feel like they've been good, just nothing stand-out. I guess it's possible I just haven't tried the right ones! I think I have a few more in my stash, so I'll be interested to see how those turn out. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  I'm glad you enjoyed this one! I've used this one but don't think I ever reviewed it here. I remember the serum smelling a lot like apple candy in the sleeve compared to barely smelling like anything on my face. It's one of the few times I wished there was a stronger scent during use. Still, it's a very good mask! Hoard 'em while you can! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  I can't remember if I smelled it in the sleeve or not, but I definitely wouldn't mind it being a bit stronger too!

I'll be super sad when they're not available at all anymore! ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

P = Premium series of one of my favorite mask brands, and an ode to my favorite season. Last nightโ€™s mask was the LuLuLun Premium 2019 Autumn - Japanese Maple. 

 

Doesn't get much more fall themed than this!Doesn't get much more fall themed than this!

Notes: 

Spoiler

Claims: Hydrates and firms skin; prevents inflammation and gives a healthy glow. 

 

Ingredients: Most folks (myself included) think of peony as a skin brightening ingredient. But peonies are also possibly anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and firming, thanks to their paeoniflorin compound. The main reason I bought this mask, though, was acer palmatum (maple) leaf extract. My skin loooooves maple extract; thatโ€™s why I was a huge fan of May Coop Raw Sauce (and its maple sap content) for years. I stopped using Raw Sauce because it was getting harder to find. Now when I try to use it on my face, the added fragrance overwhelms me. ๐Ÿ˜ž So I thought โ€œhmm, this mask contains a different type of maple extractโ€ฆ and itโ€™s LuLuLun, soโ€ฆ how can this go wrong?โ€ Especially with lactobacillus/pear juice ferment, which sounds like a nourishing treat for my face. 

Spoiler

Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Paeonia Albifolra Flower Extract, Acer Palmatum Leaf Extract, Lactobacillus/Pear Juice Ferment Filtrate, Punica Granatum Fruit Extract, Hydrolyzed Coix Lacryma-Jobi Ma-Yuen Seed, Dimethylsilanol Hyaluronate, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben 

 

Nerd(ier) moment: dimethylsilanol hyaluronate (trade name โ€œDSH C Nยฎโ€) is the ester of a silicon and sodium hyaluronate. According to Biosil Technologies, Inc. (the company that owns the reg), this stuff โ€œacts as an anti-aging, anti-stretch mark, firming and regenerating (repairing) agentโ€ฆ It contains double quantity of biotechnology sodium hyaluronate.โ€ It immediately hydrates the epidermis and maintains long lasting hydration by bonding with all the water it can get its hydroxyl groups on, whether that waterโ€™s free or already bonded. It sounds like sodium hyaluronate on steroids. The Cookie Monster of sodium hyaluronate, where cookies = water. Cookie Monster has been my favorite Sesame Street character since I was a baby, watching the show from my crib in the 1970s, so again: how can this mask possibly go wrong? ๐Ÿช๐Ÿช ๐Ÿช High hopes! 

Performance: The soft sheet had the same medium-thick material and fit of other LLL Premium masks. Since Iโ€™m very familiar with this brandโ€™s sheets, I often scissor-tailor them before putting them on my face: widen the eyeholes all the way around and snip the mouth hole corners a bit wider. I had no problem stretching this sheet to cover most of my jaw. Once smoothed down, it stayed put. 

 

The thin watery gel serum was scentlessโ€”eh, maybe just a tinge of โ€œcleanโ€ mask scentโ€”and the sheet felt wonderfully cooling. I wore it for 25 minutes, then squeezed 1/3 a handful of serum out of the sheet and applied that to my face and neck. I spent a good 4 or 5 minutes slowly and gently massaging all that serum into my skin. Such a relaxing experience! No pilling afterward but quite a lot of tack. 

 

Results: Deliriously happy skin. Super hydrated, refreshed, and quite cool to the touch, as if my pores just drank a 2-liter of cold filtered water. Fine lines were plumped away. Deeper undereye lines remained, of course, but they were noticeably softened. My whole face felt comfortably bouncy-firm and had a nice glow. So did my neck, and I hadnโ€™t pressed the sheet against that skin at all. And the only surface redness left was on a couple of pimples. 

 

I applied my usual YTTP Superfood Moisturizer to seal in all that hydration and soften the tackiness. Once everything dried down a bit, I applied my retinol serum and went to bed. This morning, my face was still crazy hydrated. This result mightโ€™ve happened because I squeezed excess serum from the used sheet and applied that to my face post-mask, giving my skin an even greater hydration boost. If LLL bottled that serum and sold it separately, Iโ€™d buy lots of it. That stuff is magic. 

 

Gosh, whatโ€™s the most thirst-quenching wine I can think ofโ€ฆ something very lush, refreshing, juicyโ€ฆ maybe something fruit-forwardโ€ฆ Glaetzer Amon-Ra shiraz comes to mind. Anything thatโ€™s the Amon-Ra of hydrating masks deserves 94 points easily, if not more. Iโ€™m so glad I bought a full box of these 7-sheet packs! My skinโ€™s gonna love these, especially as temperatures drop. 

I haven't done any masking yet tonight, but I'm very tempted to use this mask again. And I very rarely use the same mask on consecutive nights. ๐Ÿคฃ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  I will definitely look for this one!!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

You've definitely sold me on those multi sheet packs once my no buy ends @WinglessOne!
