Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface I'm glad! I tried capturing that lol.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  This is a nice one! Glad it turned out great, even when doing your lazy routine 😂 I think we all know how that is 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Thank you! Haha yeah most my masking days seem to fall on those days too lol.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian, ahhhh, Dr. Jart ceramidin sheet mask! Such a great mask. Just my own opinion, but I love the idea of having both a regular skincare routine and a "lazy" one. Or, as I sometimes tell myself a "super efficient" one. Hahaha! 🤣

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi   That’s a good spin on it!  Using that!  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface @Samtian, it just feels better to have a “super efficient” routine in the mix, because let’s face it, life happens and sometimes we can’t pamper our mugs like we’d like to or should. I’ve also told myself that my “lazy” routine is a “Back To Basics” routine. 😂 It’s all about perspective. 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi That is a great way to think!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

R is for Rose Quartz 😍 and it looks like @eshoe and I were twinning it again, this time with different rose quartz eye masks. 😆

Some days you just want to feel a little extra. For those days, there's the Sephora Collection Rose Quartz Eye Mask. This beauty has a slight weight to it, but not so much that it feels heavy. It's great as an add-on to a weekly facial (which, I need to be better at), or for unwinding after a run/workout, as a luxe prep in the morning to depuff eyes and cheeks, or, for me the last couple of weeks, when I get up in the wee hours of the morning and can't fall back asleep.I keep it on anywhere from 5-10 minutes depending on my mood and how much time I have. I learned of this pretty treat from the lovely @ElizaPRO (thank you for the rec!), who mentioned this eye mask also works well over a sheet mask. I think I'll give that a try in the next couple of weeks. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhhhh @itsfi how luxe are you?? 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahaha! 😆 I was feeling the need to be a faaaahhncy @lmaster! 😉 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Ahhh, that’s one of those products that never stays in the cart!  So you think it’s worth the $80? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface, it's $80 CAD? Woah! I wouldn't (and didn't) pay full price for it. I picked it up on sale and used up a balance on a gift card. The one from Sephora is far less expensive than others that I've seen online, but it's still spendy. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I found a jade version of it on Amazon for $25 I decided to order.  Hopefully it makes a good dupe.  


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That’s an excellent find @heartsmyface! 😍 Will be interested to hear how you like it! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Oh, I've wondered about this one! It sounds so nice, and I love the idea of using it over a mask! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, I'm used to doing various things around the house while I have a mask on, but this gives me an opportunity to just lie down and relax. 😀 I think it'll be good over a sheet mask. Will report back soon with my findings!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi thanks for reviewing ! I’m always so curious when I see that!!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888, I wavered back and forth over it a lot. It's not a "must have" but it is a nice treat. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ooooh this has been in and out of my basket more than a few times, @itsfi 🤩 It seems as though the gentle weight from it would be very soothing. I was concerned with just HOW chilly it might feel, but with a sheet mask as a barrier (like @ElizaPRO mentioned) makes it all the more appealing! May have to put this one back in my cart.., Hope your sleep patterns reset so you can resume full nights’ sleep again soon:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, it has more of a cooling sensation to it than a chilly feel, which does add a sorta calming element. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That’s good to know, @itsfi. My little roller can really ‘wake up’ my skin, I’d much prefer something gentler, and this sounds like it might be it:)
