Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  It's such a great combo! 🍯🐌😍

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It’s one of my favorite combos @Shosh85 and one I’ve been using for my skincare for the past couple of months. 😍🥰♥️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I love this one, @Shosh85! I also bought a 10-pack and am down to my last one. Curious if you find the eye openings oversize at all?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  I really enjoy this one too - happy I took the chance on them! The eye holes may have been a little larger than average, but I do like them a little on the big side. I'll have to pay more attention to the next one. Were they too big for you?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It’s weird, @Shosh85 - I didn’t feel like they were overly large on the first couple, but then I had one with crazily enormous openings! But yes , I will take that over ones that are too small. Just a good excuse to wear some eye gels👍🏼

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Used these last night. 

First used the Feel Brilliant bamboo charcoal facial sheet mask


Fit?almost perfect except it was short on the nose area & I have a pretty average nose


Smell?Typical sheet mask scent 


Consistency?this was a thinnish black mask. Serum was nicely saturated. Clear serum, thin side but not watery


Ease of use?you leave this on for at least 30 min. For my first experience, it started drying out & hanging off at the 30 min mark so I took it off & patted the serum in. It absorbed with no tack. My pores may have looked smaller. I didn't feel detoxified, but I depend on my mud masks to do that. My skin didn't feel tight but wasnt really hydrated either so used the DE fbalm for that.


Would I  purchase/try again? Yes I have more, I got in a 4 piece set from ipsy. I looked around for the price & from what I found. They are not cheap $35 but I didnt see if that was a set or for 1. This is said to take the place of a weekly facial. I don't think it's worth the price but will use if received again. 

And now for the Fbalm

I used a thin layer overnight. Its white,looks gritty but you dont feel the little beads in it.  Didnt rub it in, but didn't leave enough on my face for it to be visible. No issues with it being stuck to my blankets or not. I did wake up to soft, somewhat hydrated skin. But my skin didnt feel oily either. I do have more to test but so far its pretty meh🤔.... I have better. It also has a scent to it. Not unpleasant enough not to use but not pleasant either. I don't think its worth the price tag but maybe I'll see something great. Who knows?!🤷



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I like that brilliant mask @sonnydee 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I liked the fit @lmaster maybe I'll see more results with more use. I have 3 more

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee @It’s too bad it cost so much. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I forgot to note it did "cool" but literally only a few minutes 😕 @ather 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee so much of the feedback I’ve heard on the DE echoes your experience. The beads are pretty cool, it’s fun to have a different texture, but it’s a pricey option if you’re just after fun beads☺️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I honestly don't look at reviews until after,  to go into a product with a open mind @eshoe agreed pretty penny just for some fun beads. 😉 because it really doesn't do much. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee I feel like I've heard a lot of people think the Fbalm is pretty "meh." I've only ever tried a sample, but wasn't too impressed. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I figured it out after I used the GR Avocado Melt. It didn't give me balanced hydration, my cheek for example inside middle - ok feeling. Around my jaw line & cheek bone, not dry like the Sahara but like it had nothing on it. @Shosh85 it didnt surprise me. I can use very little of DE products without breaking out. And the ones I can use are just meh... It kinda makes me sad because you hear all these great reviews but i spent enough time in the dermatologist office as a teen to know my skin so it's not the purge stage or I have to use only DE exclusively to see results. Its DE, not me! 😂😵

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Yeah, I've heard a lot of people say that DE products cause them break outs. Sorry to hear this is the case for you. I don't really have a strong opinion about the brand, but I do love the pump jars they package their full size products in 😉 I may not repurchase the DE but I will re-use the jar! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That sheet masks sounds fabulous @sonnydee; love the black and white design on the packaging too! 😍

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I kept putting it off due to the long wear time but I'm glad I finally had the time & desire to try it. I dont know if its worth $11 - found on Amazon for 1 mask 😳but I'll use the ones  got. They'll probably pop up on ipsy again if I really like them  @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I use this year round, but the smell was like extra appealing because, it’s the season! Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer 


smells like pumpkin pie. And my skin always feels like a baby after using it. It has a tingle, doesn’t take long. And a jar lasts forever. I like how they sell their big jars in packs and those packs go on super sale all the time. But like I said, takes forever to get through a jar because they don’t skimp on the product. 



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Love this mask, @Weetart!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  Such a great choice!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This is a favorite of so many @Weetart! You are right - if it’s a favorite, it’s great to have a hearty jar and frequent sales👍🏼
