Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I initially had a hard time coming up with artistic masks for this week. Nothing came to mind, but after digging into some of the mask I picked up at the beginning of the year, I was able to find a few, including this beauty! โค๏ธ

The Creme Shop Caffeine Masquerade Eye Mask is one of my favorites! ๐Ÿ’– A true oldie-but-goodie and very pretty too! It's what I would consider an eye mask on steroids. It covers about 3/4 of my face, which for me, works out very well as my chin/jawline are the areas that are more likely to be prone to clogged pores and is, therefore, an area where I sometimes make special accommodations for when it comes to sheet masking (i.e., cutting away any excess material from that area, wringing out some of the essence in that portion of the mask before applying, or in some instances, turning a sheet mask into two pieces (top half and bottom half) and only leaving on the bottom half for half or one-third of the time I would the other portion, etc.).
 
This eye mask is saturated in a clear watery essence that smells deliciously of chocolate! ๐Ÿซ Results are wonderful - skin feels soft and smooth and looks refreshed and brightened. I've repurchased this mask time and time again and will continue to do so. ๐Ÿ˜

Thank you @Kim888 for this fun and creative challenge theme! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi beautiful mask! These are really good, love that they have so many different variations

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster, all the eye masks in this line are good ones, even the kelp one worked for me without any irritation. This caffeine and the avocado one are my favorite, with this caffeine one being my top choice because of the scent. ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฅฐ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  When I saw the theme, this was the first mask that came to mind! This is definitely one of my favorites! The scent alone would make me repurchase ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Happy to hear it's a love for you too! ๐Ÿซ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, this one is so good and yes, that can be said for just because of the scent alone. ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ˜ Itโ€™s one of The Creme Shop lines I would like to see them add more masks to. Did you use one of these eye masks this week? 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  No, but if I had one I would've! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I'll definitely be buying more soon! ๐Ÿซ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I couldn't come up with any artistic masks either... but now I shall copy your masking session! lol.  Mask for tomorrow is now set.  Thanks for the reminder that I have a couple of these!  I love the shape of this mask too.  These types of eye masks are great, I feel like I get bonus mask. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

We'll be mask twinsies this week @missjeanie๐Ÿค— TCS eye masks are so good - the size of these masks has really worked out so well for me and my skin type. 

 

I did tell myself that maybe I should look into picking up more artistic masks in 2021. But the stay-at-home has really helped to reduce the number of sheet masks I have and while I can pick up a few more, I want to keep my library more manageable and on the smaller side. Well, smaller compared to what I had before. So, maybe just a handful of artistic masks in the bin at any given time. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I like that you call it a library @itsfi !

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie, I've had percolating in my mind for a few years now, the concept of a curated collection of masks that I would set up like a mini library. I do mean "mini" because I can't have the library be too large. I mean, the sheet mask library version of the Smithsonian, it cannot be. ๐Ÿคฃ 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Lovely concept  Gorgeous and wonderful results!   

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@tjffc, when I first used these eye masks from The Creme Shop, I thought they were just so large but the size has really come in handy for me. It covers the areas where I'm prone to be more dry. It doesn't hurt that with this one at least, the scent is amazing! Highly recommend these eye masks.  ๐Ÿ˜

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Oh yes, this is such a nice one! I remember the first time I tried it I was surprised how good it smelled!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The scent seriously needs to be bottled @PrettyPaint! ๐Ÿ˜‰ An example of when added fragrance is done right. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Im embarrassed to say I have yet to try these. Maybe I'll wear one tomorrow while I'm cooking/getting ready for a party.๐Ÿ˜ I think i have all the variations too. @itsfi glad to hear its a good one, im just so bad about using eye masks. And I should since i always get the "you look tired". Duh, people. Duh. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

What @sonnydee?!!! People tell you that you look tired?! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I hope they were discreet about it. I shouldn't be surprised; in the past, there's been more than one occasion where I was told "oh, you really don't look so good." Thank you for that; no really; thank YOU! ๐Ÿคฃ Hahaha! The things people say. I've have these in my mask bin for ages it seems. I sometimes forget they are there but after using this one, I'm reminded how well these will come in handy when periodic breakouts or maskne means it might be better to not use a sheet mask on my chin / jawline area. Hope this one works out well for you. Have fun at your party!!! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Not really discreet ๐Ÿ˜ณ@itsfi. and i even had that comment come up not just from family or "friends" but even acquaintances. And even if I have a newborn. Smh. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ i havent heard it fairly recently since weve been at home more but I'm sure it's coming

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ugh! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ So sorry @sonnydee

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Its ok @itsfi just helps me sharpen my wittiness/sarcastic responses. And if i don't like the person...๐Ÿ˜พ...im not even joking the things I come up.with. Some people just lack common sense/manners/courtesy. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Excellent outlook @sonnydee! ๐Ÿค— Itโ€™s good to have a healthy dialogue of wit and sarcasm with yourself every now and again! Keeps the mind sharp! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Benton Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack

 

Material:

Thin cotton

 

Serum:

Clear and watery. A little extra in the pouch for hands and arms

 

Scent:

None that I could tell

 

Fit:

Almost perfect- just a smidge too long at the chin/jawline

 

Wear Time:

Half hour

 

Tack:

Very light and only stuck around for less than 10 minutes

 

Results:

Soft and smooth, lightly hydrated skin and a brighter, more even complexion.

I used a Biore nose strip right before this mask and it cleared up the redness I got from it.

 

Repurchase?

Yes, definitely! I would actually love to have permanent backups of this one. It makes a great soothing mask and a perfect one to have handy when my skin is acting up.
