Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It is pretty cool! @lmaster 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  it's too bad about the fragrance, but at least you got some nice results out of it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Yeah, it definitely wasn't unbearable, but it seemed to smell a bit too much like perfume.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Want to Unclutter some before the new year. And this lil ds (forgot to take a pic but it'll be in my empties)๐Ÿคฆ has been hanging around. Drunk Elephant Mini T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacialโ„ข AHA + BHA Mask 0.5 oz/ 15 mL  I've tried it before & I woke up the next morning to even more texture. Will update tomorrow if any negative results pop up but I plan on using Herbivore Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil - For Oily & Acne-Prone Skin 1.7 oz/ 50 mL #lapis tonight to hopefully counteract anything. Still won't buy, I'm perfectly happy withHerbivore Prism AHA + BHA Exfoliating Glow Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL & plan on trying out the mask. Will say if you have any "open" blemishes ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐ŸŒ‹ you will know. It burns! I thought i was far enough in the healing stage but guess not. It didn't last to long & I was able to keep the mask on for 20 min, used a cloth to wipe it off. I have others I feel do a better job at exfoliating, still pretty meh....๐Ÿ–ค for ease of spread. Dont care for the smell or taste, ๐Ÿคข if you accidentally get it your mouth or lip. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee I do like the DE but I only use it once a month, mainly due to the price, and I have so many others I need to get through ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I see they got a mini now @lmaster ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee I enjoy the DE Babyfacial, but I can completely agree with you that the taste is horrible!  I've got a sample of the herbivore that I'm curious to try to see if it can replace the DE for me as it's not available in Canada.  I'm glad to see you enjoy the line. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I have enjoyed a lot of the line @missjeanie Herbivore Jasmine Green Tea Oil Control Toner 4 oz/ 120 mL   not sure. It reminds me of the chloraseptic throat spray & I don't "see" or feel what it does. But i have a fs๐Ÿคท so plenty to see how i really feel about it.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Sorry to hear about your experience with Babyfacial! I hope it turns out better this time! 
FYI: the Babyfacial doesn't taste good either ๐Ÿคฎ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I got it on my lip & didn't know it. Soooooo bitter @Shosh85 ๐Ÿคข but no issues this morning

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Love your "U" @sonnydee! Yay for uncluttering. I need to get to that soon - your enabling powers have no limits, do they?! ๐Ÿ˜ 

Fingers crossed you don't experience any negative effects from DE Babyfacial! ๐Ÿคž

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

๐Ÿค— I try. @itsfi  I'm just glad to be done with it & more empties before the new year, the merrier.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

End of last week's gross/ G&T week

Started the day with the Boscia Tsubaki Oil Deep Hydrating mask.  The big takeaway from this mask for me was the scent.  I bought this from Sephora on sale a hot minute ago and now I'm wondering if it was out of date?  The scent wasn't the worst thing I've ever smelled, but it just smelled ... off.  I did still go ahead and use it since my skin was flaky in the morning when I woke up.  This one actually felt really nice since my skin was so tight when I put it on.  This one stayed on for about 30 minutes and I put on moisturizer right away since my skin was so dry to start off with.  No super oily feeling after removal which I was kind of anticipating.  I don't think this one is available anymore but I do remember thinking that I likely wouldn't have paid full price for it and so wanted to try it when it's on sale.  It was nice, but I likely wouldn't seek it out even if I was still around.  That said, I'd use it again even with the funky scent if I had more. 
Evening Mask was the Frudia Royal de Snail Green Mask.  Since I had such a flaky morning I figured the snail would be a good move.  I've read that it's meant to be healing.  Please take this with a grain of salt since my 'research' was mostly googling.  That said this was another enjoyable snail moment for me!  I like the other Frudia masks and this one is just as nice.  I have a few more of this (I really need to stop buying 10 packs of anything), and I like that they're masks I don't need to think about.  I'm learning more and more about my masking preferences the last few years and the will end up being filler/non-thinking masks for me.  



Beginning of this week

I missed a couple of my two a day masks the beginning of this week so I figured I'd triple up yesterday.  U & F/ quickie week for me lead me to some fruity masks, and a quickie eye patch. 
The Annies way Mango Bubble tea mask was as expected.  A lovely fruity pick up in the morning.  My skin has been uber dry and dehydrated and this was a nice little punch to my skincare before my makeup.  I'm pretty sure these have been reviewed a bunch here, so I'll keep it short.  I have more.  I 'll gladly use them.  I won't seek more out, just cause I have so much and always want to try more. 
The look at me eye patches are the sticker type and I put them on intending to wear em for a couple minutes while I did a family zoom.  Well the zoom was taking a hot minute for everyone to get set up with wine and snacks so I added in the Pineapple slices.  The pineapple slices while an F mask for fruity (they did smell fruity but not like real pineapple fruity, more like fake fruity?), were actually chosen as a mask for U&F week.  Or... as I've decided to interpret the week... FU week.  This is an FU mask as I just don't get enough serum/skincare from the mask and it seems more like a fun little thing to do rather than actual skincare.  Going forward I likely won't buy more of this style of mask.  That said, show me a fun package and I'll deny ever saying this.  My cousin did get a kick out of the pineapples and it was funny, so I guess it's a win there, but frankly, my skin needs more. The FU masks are basically masks that I don't need in my collection.  I'm going to see how many masks I can loose from my collection this week that I've deemed unworthy.  The FU is probably a bit harsh, but hey... I'm trying to fit a theme here. 
Oh... the eye patches.  These ones are the sticker kind and they're lovely.  I grabbed them at Winners and TJ maxx a few times so I'm glad to use more.  They're so much better than the slippery kind.  My under eyes were't transformed magically or anything but they did look good. 


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Yeah, I feel your pain with the 10-packs! I've told myself I'm not aloud to buy them unless I know I absolutely love it. 

Happy to hear the Annie's Way was decent! I have several packs to get through, and I've  heard the other varieties smell good too so it's nice to know I have that to look forward to. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

10 packs... I swear they're such a love/hate relationship @Shosh85 lol

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie What did we do before we were able to Google a question? Asked someone? Grabbed the dictionary or encyclopedia? Itโ€™s almost impossible to comprehend that kind of world now. 

Love those hydrogels, they are so pretty, too!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh @eshoe I remember going through the encyclopedias and the card catalogues at the library to research in elementary and a bit in high school.  Actually I remember even using them in university!  My old lady statement for the day ... "kids these days don't know how easy they have it with google right on their phones". lol

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Nice lineup here!! Love the Annie's way!! @missjeanie 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Iโ€™ll keep happily using the Annieโ€™s way for the yummy scents alone! They totally make the experience for me! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, the no thinking masks are moving up my personal rank @missjeanie. I still want to be cautious of 10 packs but it's great to discover our preferences with all this masking. Great job on your 2 a days!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Right @ShortErica I'm hoping no one takes my 'no thinking masks' as a bad thing.  I see them as an easy option when I look at a totally overwhelming collection where I know I'll be happy. 

  • The eye patches I reach for most often.

  • Thanks, YesStyle, for marring this packaging with your sticker.
