Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I went into Q & J / Overnight Mask week with some jelly masks pulled from @missjeanie ๐Ÿ˜

 

First up SNP Firming

Whoa this had lots of jelly serum on the mask. It smelled sweet leaning floral to me. The mesh-like tencel material was comfy and the fit was good. I wore it 25 minutes which seemed to be the correct time. I let the jelly absorb and applied some extra jelly from the pack to my neck. There was a very slight stick that went away quickly. Firming claims always make me double take but my face did look a bit firmed (around the checks seemed more defined). And although this wasn't intended for hydration, I forgot to apply moisturizer and don't think my skin missed it. There was tons of extra jelly that I saved and still have to use. I wish fragrance wasn't in the middle but the SNP was better than Kina for me, and I should compare to Yadah while it's fresh. We'll see what this week brings.

Next was SNP Hydrating

Same fit as the other but this one didn't feel like there was as much jelly distributed on the mask. So after I applied, I added jelly from the pack on my face. I wore it a little over 25 (lost track of time) but my skin felt similar. The remaining jelly absorbed nicely, only a light stick under chin which faded quickly. This one had more of a rose floral smell. My face was hydrated and I enjoyed it. Again, tons of extra jelly in this packet too despite me needing to use some on the mask. I saved it in a different jar and will be using both at some point. I'm not wasting it!

Both masks were a thumbs up from me. I'd say A-. I wish fragrance wasn't in the middle of the ingredients. These are the type where I would use again but at my current stash level, won't run out to buy. Thanks again missjeanie! What's everyone's favorite jelly mask? (Did I ask this last week? Mom brain is killing me)

 

I also planned to do a couple overnight masks but that didn't work out. My husband noticed dried blood on my check on day. I have a small mole next to my ear and it was cut somehow. The next couple days I kept finding dry blood but wasn't sure how it was being irritated so I went to the dermatologist and they removed it. So I limited putting products on, especially sleeping and moving it around of my pillow. Eh, I'll get to some overnight masks another time. ๐Ÿคท

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica those look like they fit perfectly! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, just little puckers by the chin but so so good @lmaster! Couldn't ask for much better than that. ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Happy you enjoyed these! It's been awhile, but I remember liking those too!

 

I have mom brain too, so if you did ask it, I don't remember ๐Ÿ˜‚ I have two jelly masks that are a tie for first place:  Ultru I'm Sorry For My Skin pH5.5 Brightening Jelly Mask and the Jin Jung Sung Snail Honey Jelly Sheet Mask I just posted reviewed on.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I remember reading your review about the I'm Sorry For My Skin @Shosh85 and unfortunately found a tampered box at my Marshalls store. That would have broken the mask no buy before the Yadah had all the masks been there. And I'll have to read the other one and take notes cause I don't want to forget.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

PSA: Certain masks are on sale at the Peach & Lily site for the next 3 days - peachandlily (dot) com - including a set of 4 Peach Slices masks for $8.

@Shosh85 @sonnydee @lmaster @eshoe @GalPalVal17 @Kim888 @m3rc3d3s @ather I think these are the folks that have expressed an interest at one point or another in these peach slices masks. I'm so sorry if I missed someone. Peach & Lily ships to Canada but I'm not sure what pricing looks like.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @itsfi! This is such a great deal! The brightening one is my favorite! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

These are great masks @Shosh85! Love the deal too. I wish each of these masks would available for sale in packs of 5 or 10. Maybe one day.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Thank you for the tag!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Youโ€™re welcome @Kim888! Gotta keep the mask stash full! ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @itsfi, I appreciate the tag! My masking drawer is thinning out and I am looking to restock, perfect timing๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Itโ€™s a nice feeling to work through your mask stash @eshoe. Hope you find some goodies from P&L; they curate a lot of great skincare. Happy shopping! ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›’ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Thanks!!! And Iโ€™m checking it out now!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Have fun checking out the site @ather! Lots of goodies. โ™ฅ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

J for Jeju Island volcanic clusters & overnight mask Glow Recipe Avocado Melt sleeping mask. A gift from the lovely @llmaster thanks lady!๐Ÿ˜˜ 

Both wash off masks

First Innisfree, the reviews say that this is a dupe for GG Supermud...๐Ÿค”...which I love. Maybe because they are both grey, mud & absorb oil/ help with blemishes. They dry down different. This is also smoother, creamer, doesn't have the tell all spots where your pores are. Innisfree you leave on for 10 min. I left it on longer probably about 20 or so. It doesnt get tight feeling really but at that point it did start cracking. The smell was ok..not mud but ashy but pleasant enough for me not to really take note of. GG & this I use a makeup eraser to remove. But while i have no issues with GG ever,. I did notice some redness almost itchiness from Innisfree on my cheeks- it may have been just from scrubbing but i don't get that from GG & anyone that has used GG know those leaves can get stuck! ๐Ÿคท my skin feels refreshed & deeply cleaned with GG but not really with this one. Sadly, I had high hopes for this, being from amore pacific but meh...๐Ÿ˜ i think I have at least 1 more use maybe half of a use out of the foil so may have to go head to head with GG for a mask duel this coming week. But i don't agree with the reviews that this is a dupe. Not for my face at least. ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค

Couldn't of picked a better mask to cool the redness from Innisfree than GR Avocado Melt. This is a thicker but creamy mask. I left it on overnight. This is not geared toward oily skin so I used sparingly but I liked it alot. Enough to see if i have a mini. It had maybe the faintest of scent of avocado but more green plant like maybe aloe...... I woke up to soft skin that had the balanced hydration that i was looking for but my skin lacked with DE F-balm. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee is this the innisfree Super Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Clay Mask? I got a deluxe sample in an order and am on use 2 with it. I wear it a while, more than 20 minutes and haven't had cracking so that's why I'm curious if it is the same. But everyone is different so who knows. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ Sorry it didn't work for you. The ingredients I'm curious about are corn starch, walnut shell powder, and methnoxypropanial (hopefully I'm spelling it right). Glad the avocado mask worked better!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes,that's it. it's not cracking into pieces that will fall off your face but around my mouth, I see cracks after it dries down & its been on there a while... I had it tonight & only left it on for about 15 min. too maybe I'm making my layer super thin๐Ÿคท @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks for confirming @sonnydee. I got big cracks with Kiehl's Since 1851 Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask but not this one. I will have to try the GG one since it seems you and lots of others like it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Spot test first @ShortErica it does have a reputation for burning people ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks for the warning @sonnydee 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica @sonnydee  I tried the GG as a full face mask once and it definitely made my face red. I still love it as a spot treatment though - it works great drying up blemishes!
