Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

For realz @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart Mmm, I LOVE this one! It smells SO delicious! Glad you enjoy it too! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It does smell like you can eat it! @Shosh85 dangerous around little ones... and big babies like me. But unlike Glow Recipe I'm sure it would be a disaster if I accidently got some of this in my mouth.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This is one of my favorite masks @Weetart! 💖 Love the scent, love the results! Perfect year round, but so fitting for the fall! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Same here @itsfi ! It's one that I actually get through a full container, then actually have to purchase a new one. A must on the shelf. Scrubby wise I also really like OLEHENRIKSEN Pore-Balance™ Facial Sauna Scrub it leaves my skin feeling fresh and soft as a baby bottom. I haven't tried OLEHENRIKSEN Cold Plunge Pore Mask ... why haven't I?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart @itsfi  The sauna scrub is one of my favorites to use, especially in the winter because of its warming effect. Mmm, feels so nice!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

100% agree @Weetart. 👊🏼 There are few wash off masks that I repurchase as a full size, and the PTR pumpkin is one of them. Ooouh, very good to know - I have a mini set with that OH sauna scrub. It leaves your skin soft and smooth like a baby’s bum? 🤔 Well then, I definitely need to give it a go soon. The Cold Plunge Pore is a nice one; I was “meh” about it the first time I tried it but gave it another shot and have really liked having it as part of my mask stash. 😍 The cooling sensation and color are added perks. 😉 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge




This refreshing gel mask helps refine texture & brighten to boost skin’s clarity—leaving you looking luminous.

A juicy burst of hydration for skin, this SuperFruit mask with Dragon Fruit & Vitamin C helps boost radiance to improve skin’s clarity. Crushed Walnut Shell exfoliators gently exfoliate & refine skin’s texture, and Tangerine, Lemon & Blackcurrant leave you feeling refreshed.


I didn't notice anything, but than again my sample is from when they sent them out to be tested. This is the one with the walnut shells in it, so I will be discarding this.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian I don't blame you for discarding it

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster It's a good lesson to remind myself, if I used things when they were new I wouldn't have to toss so much lol.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It's too bad about the shells and lack of performance, @Samtian. I think I remember liking this one ok when they sent out the samples, but I honestly can't remember which one I preferred at the time. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork Haha yeah it has been a while.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Sounds refreshing! Too bad there’s walnut shells in it. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ather Agreed!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian I haven’t tried this one, and now that I know there are walnut shells in it, can cross it off my list. Everything else about it sounds delicious!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe It does, but there were quite a lot of shells,I thought they were seeds at first.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  I'm not too fond of the walnut shells either - I voted for the Ginger Kombucha one 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Same here!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sorry about the walnut shells @Samtian. The "juicy burst of hydration" sounds wonderful. I think I have this mask ... somewhere. Will have to look for it and then pair it with an actual dragonfruit for a snack. I know Samtian, it's always food and masks ~ what are we going to do with me?!! 😂🤣😂

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I will never complain about seeing food lol.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This one has walnut shells in it?


also darn, sorry to hear it wasn’t the best. I’ve been wanting to try this forever because I love their masks. Maybe that’s why this one isn’t stocked as much as others.
