Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oof, too bad about the redness, @Samtian. Lemon extract does that to me often. Hopefully it fades soon!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork Thats a bummer! Oh well, if it doesn't I just wear a bump cap over my 5 head anyways lol.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Okay, @Samtian this is one of the best names and packaging for a mask I've seen for a while. Hah!

And your forehead is red? Is this one a touch harsh?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart Ha ha yeah the name and packaging is pretty great! It appears to be. I didn't have any issues with it on, just after wards.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian waking up with fun skin probs is never fun! I get the "reds" a lot. Sucks. Randomness... last night I ended up passing out with my firestick remote and woke up to lovely deep button marks and a hard line. My skin doesn't bounce back like it used to so... yeah. I am happy to be in quarantine at the moment.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart haha oh that sucks! Glad you don't have to go out!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

F is for Farmskin. F is also for favorite, because out of the 12 I've tried, it's the one I enjoy the most 🍯

Farmskin Superfood Salad Illuminating Honey Mask

This is a thin cotton sheet mask that was loaded with a milky serum and had a light and yummy honey scent. The fit was pretty good - not quite wide enough by the ears and a little too long at the chin/jawline. I kept it on for about a half hour. There wasn't any tackiness after removing and my face felt comfortably hydrated and looked less dull. My skin felt soft and smooth and had a nice glow.

This is a love for me and a definite repurchase! 🍯

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That is one scent I always hope for when it's in the ingredients - honey! Sounds wonderful @Shosh85!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Me too! It's definitely one of my most favorite scents! πŸ―πŸ˜‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhhh honey!! @Shosh85 sounds absolutely perfect

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  If only it were biocellulose, then it'd be absolute perfection!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Bahahah @Shosh85 how did I miss Farmskin for F masks?? I think I still have a honey one, I'm gonna try to save it till the end of my Farmskins to enjoy it the most at the end. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Haha! It took me a second to remember why I put it in the pile for this weeks theme πŸ˜‚ Hope you end up liking it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, loving your F themes on this one! β™₯️ The combo of honey and Farmskin are an excellent pairing! Soft, smooth, hydrated, glowy skin definitely make this a repurchase! 🍯 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I can't resist a combo of milky serum and a honey scent! I'd definitely like to buy a 10-pack of this one! πŸ˜‹πŸ―

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

100% agree @Shosh85! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ Says a lot if a mask is not only a repurchase but one you’d pick up in a pack of 10. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

A milky, honey serum @Shosh85 ... this is going on my to do list right away! Thank you for the heads up, it’s a set I need to try.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Yup, milky serum, honey scent and great results! Definitely something I need backups of! πŸ―πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This sounds like such a nice one, @Shosh85!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork It really is nice! So perfect for dry skin πŸ―πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Besame Cosmetics Skin Care - I'm outside the challenge but I wanted to share my sample trying! 

Spoiler
Besame has 4 new skin care products. I got 2 uses out of each so I tried everything twice. 

Scent wise, all 4 products has the same scent. I'm not sure exactly how to describe it except to say it's how I would expect vintage lotion products to smell. Like a lotion-y scent with a little something. It was a calming scent that dissipated either way. 

1. Cold Cream: This was a medium thick lotion texture that smoothed over my skin nicely and easily removed makeup including mascara. It was very gentle and did not cause stinging and after my skin felt very smooth. Full priced is $36. I think that's a fair price for what I would consider a more upscale ponds products. I have a few cleansing balms to finish but I can totally see using this instead when I am ready for a repurchase. 

2. Day Cream:  A+ for hydration, F for absorption. This was a medium thick lotion that easily applied. In terms of hydration and moisture this does an amazing job. My skin felt super hydrated and plumped, I was really impressed. However, it actually takes about 1 hour to absorb. My face was still tacky for almost a full hour after applying. I actually really like this, and I think it's fine for my life right now, but assuming we go back to normal eventually this wouldn't be a practical product for me to use on days where I was getting ready for work. 

3. Night Cream:  Nice but nothing special. Like the day cream, it's a medium thick consistency that applies easily. I actually found it absorbs faster than the day cream but I did not find it quite as hydrating. My skin still felt hydrated the next morning after use. If it had a lower price tag, I think i'd be easier on it. But at $83, when I compare it to DE prontini and lala retro, I just don't think it's as good. 

4. Vanishing Cream: this makes me think of that episode of Rugrats haha. This is a very interesting product. It is a lighter consistency that takes a bit of effort to rub. It really has a cream to powder texture leaving my face feeling soft and mattified. I totally think it lives up to it's claims. Like most priming moisturizers, this isn't enough hydration for someone like me with dry skin; I would need to layer a moisturizer or serum under, When I compare this to other moisturizing primers I've used, like the Glossier one, I would say this is clearly superior. 

Overall, I do think once I was wearing makeup again on a more regular basis I could see buying the Vanishing Cream and Cold Cream. I would  not buy the night cream as I just don't think it gave enough for the price tag. I'm torn on the day cream; it's un-useable for me as a day cream but I could actually see using it at night. I can't wait to hear other people's thoughts!
