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!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks so much @Weetart. I haven't seen them around too much, so I wonder if they are being phased out...

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Sounds like a nice one! Glad to hear you enjoyed it! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint @Sounds interesting! A super nice fitting mask is always hard to find! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888  I totally agree. I quite frequently have trouble with mask fit, so it's always such a treat to try one that's low maintenance. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

J as in just catching up with the last couple of weeks of masking... I swear I don't know where time goes these days. But anyway, here's a quick overview of a few from the stash from the last couple of weeks (minus wash-offs).

Spoiler
Papa Recipe original Bombee Honey Mask- this one is a constant repurchase. I love it- so nourishing and hydrating, plus that honey scent- yum!

PXL_20201023_190455493.jpg

Spoiler
The Hanalei Papaya Mask - I grabbed this one out of the MOTM box, so thank you to whomever put that one in! This was a nice mask- tencel material that was comfortable to wear. It was slightly narrow on the fit and the eye holes were a touch too small for me, but overall, that wasn't an issue. There was maybe the lightest of fruit scents? Mostly just fresh. My skin felt nicely hydrated afterwards. I'd definitely use it again and now I'm checking out lip balms and oils on the company's site so... 😂

PXL_20201023_190427636.jpg

Spoiler
The Mitomo Royal Jelly and Cherry Blossom Mask. This has a really beautiful design for the packaging, but for me, the mask didn't live up to the beauty of the artwork. It was ok, but I wasn't wowed. I'd consider this a decent filler mask, I was nicely hydrated but not much else left an impression on me. 

PXL_20201023_190359187.jpg

Spoiler
Peripera Sparkling Cool Lime- I know @Shosh85 is a big Peripera fan and this is a nice cooling mask in their collection. It is certainly a refreshing one! The mask material was thin and fit and adhered nicely. It does feel cool against the skin. The mask claims to bubble a bit but it wasn't anything particularly noticeable for me. The scent was light, a little citrusy. This would be a great morning mask because it really wakes up your skin and gives it a really invigorating feeling. I'd definitely repurchase. 

PXL_20201023_190414942.jpg

Spoiler
The Creme Shop's Pomegranate Cranberry Fusion Mask- TCS is very hit or miss for me and this one was just kinda ok for me. I didn't care for the scent which hinted at fruity but really came off far too chemical. The material wasn't the best fit for me either. I did get some hydration but I would say that was about it. It's not a bad mask, but it's not one I'd go out of my way to use again. 

PXL_20201023_190339537.jpg

Spoiler
Isntree's African Baobab Seed Mask- Baobab is supposed to be a nice ingredient for helping with inflammation and is filled with various nutrients. The mask had no real scent and is made of thin fiber sheet covered with clear serum. The eye holes were slightly small, but overall the fit was decent. My biggest issue was that adherence wasn't great as it kept coming unattached at my chin. Aside from that, it was a nice mask though. It left me nicely hydrated with bouncy skin after removal. I would be interested to try it again during a breakout to see if it help with an of the acne inflammation. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think almost all these masks look delicious and refreshing! @quspork great choices!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ha, I don't think I realized how many fruits/foods were featured in all of these together, @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think I also took a hanalei out of MOtM so now I'm super excited @quspork. I have a duel of Mitomo masks for this week and between a blog I read and your review I'm keeping my expectations moderate so hopefully they work out as "fine" for me. Nice round up!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I look forward to your reviews, @ShortErica!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Great line up of masks!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks, @ather!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh my goodness @quspork, the Peripera sparkling mask - it has a cooling effect?!? I would stock up on those for summer 🏝 👍🏼 ☺️ Hopefully they aren’t part of the discontinued ones!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe @quspork Peripera won't be making masks at all 😢 Clio Cosmetics is the parent company of Peripera and Goodal. Peripera will now be focusing on makeup and Goodal will be focusing on skincare. (Please correct me if I'm wrong, @WinglessOne

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

With all of the discontinued/reformulated beauty lately, it’s hard not to feel a bit discouraged @Shosh85 @WinglessOne. I’m at the point where I want to kind of ‘settle down’ with a few favorites but this only prompts more experimenting🙄

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That's a shame, @Shosh85. Especially since Goodal discontinued my favorite line of their skincare too. Guess it's good for the wallet though!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 @eshoe @quspork  Yep, that's (sadly) correct. Clio has taken Peripera out of the skincare game and made Goodal their primary skincare brand. 

 

So if anyone wants any Peripera sheet masks (or any other of their skincare products), better grab 'em now while you can still find them. Seoulful took over the Club Clio USA online store (and offline stores, I think) so they still have some of the masks. RoseRoseShop also still has some for sale.
