Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge




SEPHORA COLLECTION Sleeping Mask Pomegranate I had this in my nightstand drawer forever and just never got around to it. It’s actually decent. It reminds me of the Holika Holika Wine Night Mask that is like putting grape jelly on, except this time it smells like pomegranate jelly. And same texture. Honestly these things are way overpriced if purchased at full price. I think I got this through the mask exchange or unicorn mail at some point. It is yummy smelling. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  Sounds yummy!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart this mask sounds lovely! Similar to the Skinfood Cranberry Mask that I loved and was discontinued. I am going to check it out now, it might make a good wash off, too.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That's what I was thinking @eshoe , that it would make a good wash off. I only was able to use up the Holika Holika Wine night mask by using it mainly as a midday wash off. When I sat at the computer I'd put it on for a while then wash it off after I got up.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  Sounds nice! I agree, these masks are a bit overpriced, but I'm glad this one turned out decent for you! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It was alright for sure @Shosh85 , I will never be a huge fan of the jelly texture masks. I like gel, but jelly is too food like for me. But it did keep the moisture in and didn't react poorly with my night routine. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart, I picked up the orchid version of these SC sleeping pods when it was in the sale section. I liked it a lot and would be happy to find them in a fuller size as I agree that regular price for the amount you get isn't the best deal. 


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Did the orchid version have the same jelly texture? @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes @Weetart! 😊 It looks almost the same as your pomegranate version except the orchid one had more of a pale magenta hue to it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I actually had a Q mask. I don't know that this one is really being made anymore, but it's by A'Pieu, and it's a Quinoa mask. It's looks like it's from something called the "my skin-fit" line. I did think it fit nice and close to the skin. It didn't smell like quinoa (which is perhaps a good thing for a face mask). It was nice and refreshing and provided some moisture.



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I bet that mask was very nice! @PrettyPaint 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It was so nice and refreshing @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh how interesting, @PrettyPaint. I don't think I've noticed a quinoa mask before. I'm glad to hear it worked out nicely for you!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks so much @quspork. It seemed like a strange ingredient for a mask, but it was surprisingly nice!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint glad it was refreshing!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks so much @ather 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oooh it would be fun to try this one,

@PrettyPaint, but definitely not if it had a quinoa scent😂 It’s not terrible, just kind of...dusty? Anyhow, happy to hear you had a pleasant masking with it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Your description made me laugh. I actually was having trouble conceptualizing how quinoa smells, but I totally get what you mean 🙂

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint, it's always fun to read about a new to me skincare ingredient. Your results sound nice and, yes, good it didn't smell like quinoa. Not that quinoa has a bad scent to it, but it would probably make me hungry while masking. 😂

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Yeah, it did make me want quinoa just based on the fact that I haven't had it for so long.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint I have a few from this line and I do enjoy them. I may or may not still have this one around... forgot if I used it or gave it away. Glad to hear it was a successful mask!
