Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Glow theme


 the creme shop all is bright

This was a medium thickness fit was bunchy around the chin, inner eye snips and all is well 😆 scent was lovely and smelled like perfume but not in a bad way, could be strong for some. Clear bubbly serum with a bit extra. Wear time was 15 minutes, about half of the serum seemed to have absorbed. Brighter a bit more hydrated and not so much of moisturizing. It's a decent one, not a repurchase however

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster Cute! Did you see the lip balm they have at Ulta to go with this?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

No I don't believe so @Samtian was it out last year or is it out now?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  This would be such a cute mask to include in Christmas cards!   

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Very true!! @heartsmyface hopefully they will come out with some cute holiday versions this year too

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  The packaging on these are all so cute! Not that I'm ready for Christmas or anything, but this one definitely gets me in the Christmas-y mood! 🎄Glad to hear you at least got some decent results! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think starting Christmas early would be beneficial to me,,, the last minute shopper over here 😆 @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The packaging on this one makes me smile @lmaster. Too bad it wasn’t more moisturizing; that would be great for the holidays.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It was just ok @itsfi but the packaging does make me happy 😊

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh, the packaging is so cute!!!! 🙂 @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It is so cute! Holiday spirit full speed ahead @PrettyPaint 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

So the Tarte mask is called-  Tight & Bright Clay Multi-Mask. The clay side is quite drying, has some larger granules in it, and zero scent. My face looks great this morning, like so great I might consider the full size! Detoxifying & purifying exfoliating mask: Perfect for the oily T-zone, this shine control mask helps tighten pores & detox your skin from the day’s pollutants. Amazonian clay works as a natural purifier to treat blemishes & blackheads, as gentle micro-exfoliants polish away dead skin cells to treat flakes & uneven skin tone without over drying.




Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

So great its working, @Samtian!! I think I have a sample of this around somewhere. Have you tried the Origins Original Skin™ Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay 2.5 oz/ 75 mL ? If you have, how would they compare?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  So happy you're seeing some nice results!
If I remember correctly, this is designed to be used as a multi-mask. (Obviously, you can use it any way you wish 😉) But I think they suggest using the clay mask on oily areas or on areas where you need some pore help. The gold gel is for the areas that are drier and in need of hydration.
For instance, when I used it, I put the clay on areas I'm more prone to acne- my t-zone, nose and chin. Then I put the gold gel on my cheeks, since they tend to get drier than the rest of my face. The second time I used it, I did a full face of the clay and then followed it with a full face of the gel. I don't really remember what the results were like, but it is a fun one!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Yep that is correct! I'll have to try one after the other when I get to the end of the clay side. I'm not doing both at the same time because the only area I'd have left open is the hollows of my cheeks lol. Here's one of the photos they use-


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Yup, this is pretty much what I did! Your skin type can definitely change the way you use this one - my face has always been super dry, so clay masks usually end up getting used as spot treatments anyway. With your skin type, I can see how you'd use up more of the clay than the gel. 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian, yes, this is the one I thought you were using. It’s too bad the clay mask is so drying. The jar is so pretty. 😍 I would be motivated to use up the mask just to repurpose that container! 😂 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Haha so would I. I don't mind drying stuff, that's my favorite liquid lipstick lol, plus it works. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'll have to check this one out @Samtian. I'm so intrigued by the two sides - I haven't seen a mask packaged like that! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint Me either, it's really cool looking.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Same @Samtian I've never even seen this one before!
