Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, I've been reading and watching a lot about it. Clean hair, damp when applying, make sure to shampoo and condition after, so hopefully I'm doing it right. Hope you find the trick so it's magic works for you @eshoe. I know lots of people love it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That’s why I haven’t given up @ShortErica!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Boo! Sorry to hear the Biossance mask is discontinued! I seriously hate when that happens! Hopefully you can find a good dupe! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 this has been a tough year getting too attached to any skincare product! Moving forward, its going to be love lightly and don’t get too attached 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I noticed that awhile back,,,I was going to buy it,,, and it was gone 😭

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Maybe we were talking about it, @lmaster - so annoying though. I might send them a message to see if there are any plans to bring it back.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

If you do please keep us posted @eshoe 🙏

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster this is the info I was given:


The reason you can no longer find the Vitamin C Rose Mask on our website is because it has been discontinued.

For now, you can find a limited amount available in our Amazon store (with link included).”


After inquiring as to the reason behind it, this was my second response:


”I not privy to specific details, but many factors are taken into consideration that involve sales, upcoming new products, etc.

You might try our Glycolic Facial which is another fantastic mask.”


So, on to the next I guess!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

😔 @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I’m waiting to hear back from them @lmaster, I will let you know!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Interesting about the Biossance mask @eshoe. Maybe Biossance is just reformulating? Or repackaging?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I really wish I remembered who mentioned it here, @itsfi. I believe it was on another any rate, there seem to be a few skincare reformulations this year! I wonder if it’s just coincidence, or something else 🤷🏻‍♀️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I’ve reviewed this a while ago, but on my no buy kick I’ve actually been polishing off containers. And this peek of is “R”eally “I”ck. It smells gross, as a peel off I think it compares poorly to nearly every other one I’ve used, especially at this price point. Epic pass, but I am stubborn and am going to finish the tube. I have one or two more applications. 



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Awesome job getting through some containers @Weetart, especially ones you don't enjoy! That's my goal for next year now. With hopefully my sheet mask collection toned down, I'll focus on the container ones. 🙂

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  I admire both your stamina and stubbornness! Nice job! It's not easy to finish products you don't care for!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Empathizing with your resistance to giving up on this one, @Weetart. Nice work, it’s such a relief and sense of accomplishment to finish a mask you’d much rather toss.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart @Sorry to hear it’s disappointing! Especially with such cool packaging !

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart, good for you for working through your stash on your no buy. 👍🏼 It feels good to get through products. I’m sorry that this one smelled bad! Ugh! But I love your creativity with fitting this into the week’s challenge themes! 😆 @heartsmyface‘s rec to repurpose products on different parts of the body is a good one! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart   I’m stubborn like that too though if it’s really stinky maybe give yourself a pedicure and do a foot mask;). Or mask your knees and elbows with it!  That way you’re using it up but don’t have to suffer through it;) 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This arrived quickly!  I still need to wash it but am excited to use it tonight!  it’s got a nice weight and feels so cool to the touch!  I love the presentation and the little sachet to store it in!  


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Well this looks exceptionally calming, @heartsmyface 🏝☺️
