Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks again @eshoe! I had never heard of the brand, and now I want to look and see what else they have! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hi all! After a lengthy absence I am back!! Unfortunately I have experienced the affects of covid (in my social circle/immediate family and TBD if personally) and wasn't really feeling up to doing much, but seeing as we're going to be in this new normal for a while, I figure may as well try to incorporate at least a little of the "old normal" hahaha.

 

And right on time - my masking yesterday seemed to be right on theme!

 

Last night I used the MILK MAKEUP Watermelon Brightening Face Mask 1 oz/ 30 g . Not sure if anyone else has used this one, but if so, then you know the feeling of disappointment that it smells nothing like watermelon. It has the faintest clay aroma which I didn't notice or mind, but certainly was not what I was expecting.

 

Application was easy thanks to the stick and was mess free. It glides on a bubblegum pink color (on my skin tone) and turns a little more dusty rose as it dries. The instructions says leave on for 5-10 mins. Generally I like to leave brigyhtening masks on for longer, but the reviews indicated that some people experienced staining that looked like a sunburn, so I followed instructions and removed after 10ish mins. 

 

It didn't dry down totally so I still was able to move my face and rinsed off very easily with warm water. Some people stated that it stained their towels, so I used a pink towel to dry my face after removal, so I can't attest as to whether or not that may be an issue. 

 

Results - as with any brightening product, I'm skeptical that any long term results can be seen in one use. That being said, the clay did help control my oil, and my skin did look glowy and bright. It felt pretty soft, and it still feels really nice and soft today. 

 

Final verdict - I would use it again and liked the results! That being said - I will reserve this one for travel. I get similar results from other clay masks, but I don't like travelling with them because they're messy. This is the perfect travel clay mask for short term softness and brightness, but wish it had at least a bit of watermelon scent ๐Ÿ˜ž

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@cianni so happy to see you back!! Unfortunately this milk mask was a major fail for me!! The one I bought was dried out and after I opened it up,, it broke into chunks ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@cianni, so good to see you! The Milk watermelon mask stick was a good travel companion for me ... when that was something I did. ๐Ÿ˜‰ All in due time though. It does come in handy for trips. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Good to see you again @cianni! So sorry to hear about covid in your circle. Hopefully masking brings you a little joy and normal. Isn't it frustrating when masks don't smell like they are supposed to?! At least the results sound nice. Hope you stay safe and sane. It all still seems weird.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@cianni  Great to hear your thoughts on this one. Iโ€™ve been meaning to try it. I might wait to try it when travel opens up again!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@cianni we have missed you! So sorry to hear your news, I hope everyone is back to feeling normal again quickly.

 

Yes, this one would be good for travel, and ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผthat will be something soon again!



 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@cianni   It's great to see you around! I am so sorry to hear your news! I hope you and the people close to you get better soon!

 

I'm happy to hear you're liking the mask stick! I definitely agree it would've been better with a yummy watermelon scent, but I love that it's perfect for travel! ๐Ÿ‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@cianni @Sorry you havenโ€™t been feeling well but glad to hear you were up for some masking! Iโ€™m always a little skeptical of stock masks but they are nice for not making a mess!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Welcome back, @cianni! I'm sorry to hear you've been dealing more personally with Covid. I hope you and your loved ones are on the road to recovery. 

 

Switching gears, the Milk mask does seem like it would be a good option for travel. That's a great idea!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Masks that make us hungry. This has been sitting in my try now bin for a month or two so I thought it will fit in nicely with this week's theme. 

The Creme Shop Blueberry & Banana fusion sheet mask, a fave on here if I remember right. 

 

Fit?not bad, extra in the upper temple area. Got some in my hair. But fit my nose almost perfectly. And really hugged around my eyes-  I usually always have a gap so that was nice. But with TCS masks they are thin enough to just smush around for a better fit

 

Smell? Delicious. Like a blueberry & banana smoothie. So good!

 

Consistency?this was almost milky feeling, I rubbed extra on my hands & at first it was sticky but luckily it soaked in on my hands & face after removal with very little tack,if any. 

 

Ease of use?no issues.

 

Would I  purchase/try again? Definitely a winner! My skin felt great afterwards & even today. And I hope I have more๐Ÿค” will have to double check. 

๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ

Finished the night with Fresh coconut lip balm. Because i don't have a blueberry or a banana lip balm! ๐Ÿ˜ณi was surprised too! But I'm not fretting because this coconut can join in my masking sess anytime

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Blueberry and banana!! Yum @sonnydee breakfast ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I love TCS blueberry banana mask @sonnydee; it makes me want a smoothie. Great, now I'm hungry (though when am I not, really?!! ๐Ÿคฃ) I see your superhero powers are at it again. Off to see what I have to make a smoothie! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  This one sounds amazing!!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Love this one, @sonnydee! I am thinking of your โ€˜binโ€™ and wondering if you will discover a box (or two) in there๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I have it all inventoried @eshoe I just got to look at it. Now where the box would be...thats a different story. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee mm that sounds like a good combo!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @Samtian it was a great one. Yumyum

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Coconut, blueberry, and banana sound like a delicious match up, @sonnydee!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It was a great match all around @quspork & i found lanolip makes a banana lip balm so might have to fill that void after all @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee That's one of my favorite Creme Shop masks, especially because of the scent! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐ŸŒ
