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 T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacialโ„ข AHA + BHA Mask Mini 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

Friday's F masking involved more Farm Skin and fruits, but this time, it was all about the hair!
Sorry, no photo with fruits - I set out a bowl of grapes to include with the apples, but it seems folks decided to eat all the grapes. Oh well.Sorry, no photo with fruits - I set out a bowl of grapes to include with the apples, but it seems folks decided to eat all the grapes. Oh well.
I hadn't planned on using this hair mask until Sunday night, but an unforeseen (there's my U) accident with my hair and my dinner ๐Ÿ˜ฉ meant that I needed to wash my hair again, so I decided to give this Farm Skin Fresh Food for Hair Care Hair Mask Deep Moisture Grape & Apple a try as well. I received this mask as a gift from Farm Skin. I purchased sheet masks and some clay masks from them a while back and a couple of the clay masks were crushed in transport. They quickly sent me replacements and included this hair mask for the inconvenience - very good of them. I wasn't expecting it at all. 
The design of the mask makes it very interesting - see for yourself. My takeaway from this mask session is that while my face leans slightly smaller than most sheet masks, my head is slightly larger than this third generation hair mask. My efforts to get the top of this hair mask to cover the entire top of my head was comical, but I got it all in . . . eventually. It was easier to get all my hair into the bottom portion of this hair mask. Thinking about it more clearly now, I see why the top part needs to be smaller, it helps to secure the mask, but because of the sizing and fit, this hair mask may not be for everyone.
The inside of the hair mask is coated with the serum and, per the directions, you are to massage it into your hair once the mask is on, which probably is another reason for the tighter fit at the top - again, to help the mask stay snug and secure. I left the mask on for the recommended 20 minutes and my hair felt light, silky and smooth as I was rinsing out the mask. This also makes a wonderful detangler. After letting my hair air dry, it looked soft, with no frizzies and a healthy shine to it. I also noticed that my hair also looked to have just a little lift to it as well - sometimes a hair mask can leave my hair looking flat, especially at the crown. Not so here. I struggle with lack of volume so that was a really nice and welcome result for me. 
While the fit of the top portion of the mask takes some work to get right, the results from this Farm Skin mask are good. I'm undecided on whether I would repurchase; certainly, from a results perspective, yes. This performed well for me. I'm just not sure I like the cap set up. On the other hand, if the actual mask essence/cream was available separately for purchase (apart from the cap), I would seriously consider picking it up, despite having plenty of hair masks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

That looks like a foot mask @itsfi ๐Ÿ˜† did it smell good?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It does look like a foot mask @lmaster! ๐Ÿ˜† The smell was fine just very very faint and not long lasting. I had to put my nose right up to it to pick up what subtle scent I did, and then it was gone. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

well this is interesting @itsfi .  Did you use the mask post wash or pre wash?  I always think I like the idea of these masks, but find that I end up grabbing the tubs of thick conditioner like masks instead.  Maybe I need to pick a month to concentrate on the cap versions. Super cool of the company to send this along with the replacements. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie, the directions say to wash with shampoo and then use the hair mask which I find is a pain in the patoots from a practical standpoint. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ I ended up jumping in the shower to shampoo my hair, what with having gotten sauce all in my hair and on me - yaaaay me! After towel drying my hair, I used the hair cap and then rinsed it out of my hair. 

It was super generous and thoughtful of them. Excellent customer service.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm with you on the pain in the patoots here @itsfi .  I always prefer to just leave the mask in while I'm finishing my shower.  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I was curious about these! The cap shape is quite interesting! The second photo looks like a foot mask bootie ๐Ÿค” My head is pretty big and bulbous so it probably wouldn't work for me either ๐Ÿ˜‚

What did it smell like? 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, โ€œbulbousโ€ is a great descriptor for the cap! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ The scent was suuuuper subtle, along the lines of the skin on grapes ๐Ÿ‡, maybe. Itโ€™s not a full on sweet, grape scent at all, and is very fleeting. I was trying to see if I could pick up an apple ๐ŸŽ scent, but nope.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I like the idea of the cap.๐Ÿค” I always have a hard time using hair masks because I would want to use it in the shower....may have to use just a regular cap dedicated to my hair masks. Have to admit, feel a bit dumb not thinking of it before๐Ÿคฆ @itsfi happy to hear about the good results though. And grapes are delicious! Would've happened at my house too๐Ÿ‡

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee, I highly recommend having a shower cap just for hair masks. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ  It took me a while to think of it but it really comes in handy. It doesnโ€™t have to be a fancy one either. I use the plastic ones that I can just rinse out after using a mask. The complementary shower caps that are in hotels work too.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhhh good idea about the plastic hotels ones. I do have the cheap ones lying around since teeni likes having her hair colored crazy. @itsfi I don't know bout you but I take everything from hotels when I stay. Within reason of course๐Ÿ˜‰ but I did go to HS with a girl when we were at state competition, fell head over heels with the down comforter & she took it home with her. ๐Ÿฉ
