Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface, awww, thank you, hon! ๐Ÿค— These avatara masks are nice; Iโ€™ve liked all the ones Iโ€™ve tried so far. I wish I had picked up more when I first happened upon them. 

โ€œWhy Iโ€™m looking for more masks is beyond me...โ€ Itโ€™s for science, hearts. All for science. ๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿงช๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The vintage-looking packaging of the Kokostar mask is so appealing, @itsfi!  Sucked me in immediately (as did your entire flatlay).  And I LOVE the YTTP dream mask--it was my go-to winter moisturizer last year and I actually have one just waiting for me to start using in a month or two when the air gets colder and drier.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@CookieGirl1, thank you for your kind words. โ˜บ๏ธ Oh yes, 100% agree with you - I like (and miss) the vintage packaging on the Kocostar slice masks. My recollection is that the packaging for their hand, foot and hair masks are still styled with this vintage design. Functionality is the same but thereโ€™s something visually appealing to me about the original packaging and seeing it on my table. ๐Ÿ˜

 

I can definitely see how YTTP is a winter go to. โ™ฅ๏ธ Do you use it day and night? My primary winter moisturizer is a combo of belif moisturizing bomb + The Ordinary rosehip seed oil, and Iโ€™ll reach for a heavier/creamier moisturizer when needed. The YTTP is looking like itโ€™ll be that moisturizer. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I CAN use the mask as a moisturizer both day and night because it actually seems to sit well under makeup but I prefer to use it primarily at night, for the most part, unless my skin is extremely dry. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That makes sense @CookieGirl1. It is very nourishing. ๐Ÿ’›

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Such a great picture, as usual! Yellow is such a cheerful color ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‹

The Avatara mask sounds wonderful! Glad it could help calm and brighten! Love that you got an added bonus of bouncy-ness ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Awww, thank you @Shosh85! ๐Ÿค— Yellow puts a smile on my face. ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’› Bouncy skin is something I like more and more with each passing day. ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I feel the same way @itsfi love the flavor of the scrub,, but wish it didn't melt so fast

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Something about lemonade draws me in @lmaster! ๐Ÿ‹ It would have been great if they kept the formulation but were able to put it in tube form. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Okay!  I decided to do a pedicure last night and that never happened but I told myself Iโ€™d do one this morning instead.  I got the foot bath down from my closet and ended up cleaning and reorganizing my palettes๐Ÿ˜…  Itโ€™s now 3pm and hot water is in the foot bath.  I stuck my feet in and of course it spilled out all over so I had to clean that up and add some cooler water cause ouch!   Settled in and soaking my feet. 
Step 1 - salt soak.  The soak smells like straight up cinnamon and is tinted orange.  I suppose thatโ€™s one of the pumpkin spices so not mad just not what I expected.  It still smells great!  There are no instructions for how long to soak my feet so I am going with 20 minutes cause Iโ€™m enjoying the vibration and massage and I didnโ€™t pull this foot bath out and clean my closet for nothing! 
Step 2- sugar scrub- this smells like pure cinnamon as well.  Whereโ€™s the nutmeg and clove?  A quick look at the ingredients says they didnโ€™t bother with anything but pumpkin extract and cinnamal. Is cinnamal another word for  cinnamon? Oh itโ€™s what gives cinnamon itโ€™s scent. And itโ€™s toxic for fish if it gets into the water supply.  Hmmmm.  The scrub feels great and smells great even though it doesnโ€™t smell like pumpkin spice.  
Step 3- mud mask-again just smells like cinnamon.  Is this why this product was in a subscription box?  The mask is suuuuuper creamy.  Itโ€™s to be kept on for 3-5 minutes.  Iโ€™m going with 5 cause Iโ€™ve gotta make this process and the cleanup afterward worth it.  The mask doesnโ€™t dry down and is easy to rinse off.  
Step 4- massage butter- cinnamon scented massage butter.  Itโ€™s thinner than what I consider massage butter but itโ€™s still thick moisturizing and smells good.  Thereโ€™s more massage butter than you could possibly need for your whole body in a packet so I will smell like cinnamon for a while:D 
All in all a good experience.  My feet are happy for the love and smell like cinnamon:). Iโ€™d recommend this but donโ€™t expect pumpkin spice.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That foot bath looks super relaxing, I'm sorry getting it out though was a bit of a hassle, @heartsmyface!! Glad the mask set seemed to work out, although too bad it didn't smell like pumpkin!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface  Well, it's a bit of a bummer there was no Pumpkin scent, but cinnamon still sounds great and the foot bath just looks SO relaxing! Glad you could pamper yourself a little! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'll take cinnamon spice!! @heartsmyface looks so relaxing!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This sounds like a cinnamon-foot heaven, @heartsmyface!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface oooh sounds fun! Is that the one that came in FFF this season?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888   It is!  :D.   

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sounds like a treat @heartsmyface. In high school I had a paraffin wax bath that I'd use for my hands and feet. Now I want some type of pampering device again!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Ouhhhhh, that sounds divine and also somewhat messy.  How do you clean a parrifin bath?  ๐Ÿง. 

exit- Iโ€™m watching how to videos on wax baths!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface As long as the wax was mostly clean, we left it in and it would harden. Then when we would use it again, just reheat. It was the kind that you plugged in and it melted and kept it warm. Once the wax looked gross we would dig out the solid pieces and add new wax. I forget if that was what was instructed or we felt more confident disposing it that way than dumping out warm wax.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica   Okay that doesnโ€™t seem so bad  knowing beeswax is antibacterial.  And cooled off seems a less messy way of doing things.   

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface  Omg I need to invest in one of those foot baths!!! And the scent of that soak sounds so yummy!! Perfect treat!
