Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi @I recently bought a weighted blanket as well!  Itโ€™s a nice full body hug!  I find it comfortable for an hour or so and then itโ€™s too much.  Are you enjoying yours?  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface, I like the weighted blanket, though not as much as I did when I first got it. Yes, a full body hug! It's nice for helping my body relax a little more and fall asleep, especially when I pair it with a steam eye mask. Ahhhh! But, I'm still waking up in the early morning hours, well ahead of when I would like to get up. I'm determined to figure out what is at the root of this though. ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Ugh thereโ€™s some common grounds I wish we didnโ€™t have.  Iโ€™ve been having a hard time going to sleep in general and am waking up around 5am.   Iโ€™ve been trying turkey at night, yoga, warm baths... itโ€™s helping a little.  The yoga most of all.    I may have to cut out drinking tea altogether though thatโ€™s a last resort.  I like my tea. ๐Ÿ˜•   Are you experiencing more stress than usual? It could be that weโ€™re getting less exercise being home all the time?  so many variables to explore.    

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Wow, cutting out tea altogether ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ@heartsmyface?!! Would switching to an herbal caffeine free tea after a certain time help? For me, Iโ€™m sure itโ€™s a combination of sitting at my desk for too long, less exercise (and less outdoor time than I had before), and stress, the latter of which I suspect because I was doing things that are typically signs of stress for me (gritting my teeth, etc). Iโ€™ve been making some adjustments that have helped, like carving out time in the middle of my day to take a walk outside and giving myself more downtime (and without my phone or computer) before bed. I like your idea of yoga. Iโ€™ve been doing some stretches in the mornings and throughout the day, but a solid amount of time doing yoga would be good.

From Q week, Quret and Rose Quartz:

Spoiler
Like @itsfi I also selected the Nourishing Brazil Nut variety from Quret, though I did not have any food snacks on hand ๐Ÿ˜‰ I bout a 10 or 12 pack which also includes eggplant, broccoli, tomato, and a couple of other โ€˜flavors.โ€™ This is the one I found to be most nourishing and moisturizing. I detected a slight scent after first opening, faintly nutty, which was pleasant. It fades pretty quick. The fit is pretty good, with the eyes a little large which made the pairing with the Skin Gym All-Natural Rose Quartz just right!

I pulled these hydra-gel masks from the MOtM box, and they were a fun little treat. The Barbie pink gels with star shapes at the corners are adorable and fun to use. As far as efficacy? They were definitely soothing. I would use them again in a heartbeat, just for how cute they are. Thank you to whoever added them to the box, I really enjoyed getting to try them!

Also pictured is the Wander Beauty Lip Retreat Oil Skinny Dip. Love how this looks and feels. It isnโ€™t too heavy or sticky, and has a decent wearing time. Something I can wear as gloss that I can feel good about is a bonus!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe oh those eye patches look exceptionally cute!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

They are, @lmaster! I think I first saw them on @emaisgr8, and thought they were adorable โ˜บ๏ธ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe   I LOVE the wander lip retreat!!!!  Iโ€™ve been wearing it in excursion as my default lip product!  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It makes a great gloss, @heartsmyface ๐Ÿ’— So easy to forget itโ€™s a treatment!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe Those eye patches really are super cute! Glad they turned out decent! 
I've been tempted to try out that lip oil - will definitely have to add it to my next order! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I would say the lip is similar but not as thick as the Dior Lip Glow Oil Pink @Shosh85. Itโ€™s much more pigmented, whereas the Dior has a jelly stained appearance. Both are ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ, though!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Good to know! Thank you!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I've really enjoyed the Wander lip oil too, @eshoe!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Of the products Iโ€™ve tried from the brand, itโ€™s my favorite @quspork ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy yo hear it works for you, too!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I must have missed the initial scent on the sheet mask @eshoe. We're semi-twinning it with the rose quartz eye masks too. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Iโ€™ve noticed that even in multipacks of the same exact mask, there are nuances in size/scent sometimes๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ There was a mask @Shosh85 @recently used that I had a 10-pack of, the Jin Jung Sung ๐ŸŒ, where I found some fit better than others. Nothing major, but worth noting. 

The rose mask is really pretty. Something like that would be a great way to bring some variety to getting through a 30 (or 32๐Ÿค”) day mask pack!

Finished off the for innisfree & compared it at the same time to GG Supermud. Going to keep this short since GG is a known love for me & i just reviewed Innisfree. But hey no redness tonight! I purposely avoided that cheek area with Innisfree & nothing. I mostly did some tzone & along the jaw line,. one mask on either side. GG was harder to wash off but I felt cleaner on that side. I think Innisfree leaves a residue, maybe to mattify? .. Yup, I'll stick to my GG for my pesky problem area. @itsfi  here is the back of that GR Avocado

foil. It does mention a pha ..edit: I think this is the original, this one contains honey, the new retinol doesn't. I need to dig around to see if I have a sample of the new one. Nice catch @itsfi ๐Ÿ’š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee yep that is the older version, I have the new one but have not tried it yet

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Supermud is one of my most favorite spot treatments! Happy to hear it works for you too! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, this is the original version @sonnydee. That's the one I prefer, but I don't think they make it anymore. Which I just tell myself is probably for the better as I have plenty of sleeping masks already. ๐Ÿ˜ I didn't realize the original contained PHA; or maybe I did and just forgot. Interesting about the feel of the Innisfree vs. GG after rinsing off; I'll have to try them both out together at some point. I like both and I can see myself having both in my stash - of course, I can, right?! Hahaha! ๐Ÿคฃ GG is definitely one when I need to zap the life out of my zit stat. I like it more as the occasional spot treatment; well, it seems less occasional nowadays. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

So the new version is not that great @itsfi ?
