Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @haleyvvvv ! Aw, brunellos are fairly easy to find here in the States. If it was legal for me to ship wine directly to someone in Canada, I'd send you a bottle myself. 🙂 If you find any 2015 brunello at a fairly reasonable price, buy it—do not hesitate—and squirrel it away for a couple years so it can finish settling down. 2015 was a great year for these across the board. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think when I first came across them in Tuscany about a decade ago, that they weren't commonly importing (or at least this is what a wine guide told me, lol), @WinglessOne. But could also be hard to get outside of majorish cities. We do have some, it just isn't a ton, but I will definitely keep my eye out for 2015 ones, thank you for the tip!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

L is for Latte -  I did this one kind of recently, but it was in my pile of masks that are next to expire, so it gets another turn .... and I'm not mad about it at all 😉




HIDDENcos Latte Mask

This is a super thin and meshy cotton sheet mask that was drenched with a brown milky serum and had a delicious coffee scent. The fit was ok - a teensy bit too big all around the forehead and a little too long at the chin. I kept it on for about a half hour. There was some very light tack after removing, but it absorbed in less than 10 minutes. My face looked noticeably brighter and my skin felt soft and moisturized and had a nice glow.

I love this mask! The fit was really the only negative part about it - which is never a deal breaker for me anyway. I will definitely continue to repurchase this one!




Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yum!! This mask actually looks so good right now!! @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Yep, it definitely makes you crave coffee! 😋

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oooh, coffee masks that smell like coffee!! Glad this was a win, @Shosh85!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv  Yep, the scent did not disappoint! They also make an Americano one that is just as good! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I love both the coffee based masks from Hiddencos @Shosh85. ♥️ ️ I find I’m not consistent in which one I like more; they’re both good so it depends on how my skin is doing that day. 😆 BTW forgot to mention in your previous post that I’m liking the polka dots. 😍👍🏼

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I agree, both of the coffee masks are wonderful! They will both always be repurchases for me!

My starry night blanket is currently being used as part of a fort, so I'm using my boys' old baby blanket instead 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Awww, the boys picked a great blankie for their fort @Shosh85! 🥰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Wow!  Im so glad you liked it.  Adorable packaging

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@tjffc  Thanks! It's definitely a love for me! They also make an Americano mask that I think is equally as good! 😋

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Because I am seriously ridiculous, here was my attempt to do the fall mask theme that was what, like two weeks ago? At this point, I can't remember my feelings on the Pumpkin Spice Creme Shop mask. I think I liked it, but for some reason I can't remember it having much of a pumpkin scent. And I think it fit better than some creme shop masks...haha.


But I also did the PTR Pumpkin Enzyme mask in advance, which of course smells amazing. I'm sure I have posted about this one a million times, but I will always love it.



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That looks like a perfect fall picture @PrettyPaint!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks so much @ShortErica  💕

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This looks like such a great fall masking session, @PrettyPaint!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @quspork. I do love fall!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohh pumpkin fusion @PrettyPaint perfect for Fall theme

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Yes, I couldn’t resist using it for the theme! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  I don’t recall that one smelling like pumpkin spice but I think I was able to convince myself I could detect pumpkin.  
I don’t have any strong feelings about it either way so it must not have been terrible😅 

and I love the fall theme photo and am glad you posted it.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface  Awww thanks so much. I am glad my sense of smell isn’t missing in that case. I do wish it would have had that lovely pumpkin spice scent, though. I always feel like a wine (mask) connoisseur because I am always sniffing them.
