Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

I have them both @heartsmyface , and the masque is more. Better and stronger. The powder is a nice touch up, an in-between type of thing, but you will notice the masque as having deeper action, and having more noticeable results. Can not use it everyday, unlike the powder.

I love the masque. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@l8totheparty Ahhhh, thank you (but also β€˜how could you!?’ πŸ˜†) onto my list then!  It’s clear I’m going to have to declutter masks that didnt 100percent wow me to make room to try new ones.  
I need to remember to opt for minis of masks I haven’t tried yet if they’re an option cause I’m more likely to get through them

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

I have noticed the powder as a mini, but not the masque. I find it hard to throw away skin care that doesn't wow me, so if you manage- all the power to you! @heartsmyface 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

A couple more "B" masks from last week. Will post a band name mask at another time.


B is for bubbles . . . for the face and the lips

B - Bubbles.jpg


I'm always a little nervous with bubble masks that the bubbles are going to get into my eyes. That anxiety is allayed a bit with this Berrisom Soda Bubble Mask - PoreTox Fruit is not a full sheet mask. It's a little larger than a half mask, covering my face from under my eyes to my chin/jawline and my nose bridge. Given my concerns about bubbles getting into my eye, I'm very mindful of how quickly the bubbles foam up on my nose bridge. Most times I'll snip off that section, but this time, I elected to keep it as is. The viscous but drippy essence in this mask has an effervescent fruity candy scent that, while not offensive, isn't very pleasant to me. This bubble mask has a fluorescent yellow-green (or is it green-yellow?) hue that reminds me of the color of lemon lime Gatorade and contains a print around the cheek area that resembles cheetah spots. The bubbles on this mask foam up quickly after I applied the mask. Instructions recommend leaving the mask on for 5-10 minutes and I'm sure my wear time was closer to the 5-minute mark before I removed it and rinsed off the bubbles and essence from my face. 
There are three (3) different varietals in this line; this one claims to purify and detoxify the skin and tighten pores and the mask lived up to some, but not all, of its claims. I did not notice any tightening or shrinking of my pores. I did, however, notice that my pores were clear and decongested after using this mask, and my face looked refreshed and bright. These results to me are the best part of this Berrisom bubble mask. That said, however, I find that I can get the same or very similar results with a regular (non-rinse off) and non-bubble/foaming sheet mask. So, while this mask did not convert me into a bubble sheet mask fan, this Berrisom mask, as well as a Mediheal bubble mask I used last year, are probably the two bubble masks I would consider using again; that said, I wouldn't run out to buy one.

B is for Bawdy, and butt, bum, behind, bottom and brrr ... πŸ˜†

B - Bawdy + Bum.jpg 
The Bawdy Beauty Shake It Marine Algae Butt Mask is so cold! B-r-r-r-r!!! The sheets put next to each other spell out the name of the particular butt mask; in this case, "SHAKE IT", which I think could be a catchy tune for a song. Not sure about how Bawdy or Marine Algae would fare as a band name, though. Eh, I'll try to post my band name mask later this week. Back to this butt mask though, even if you did shake it a lot, it's unlikely these sheets would come off - they adhere very well. You can definitely multi-task with these on if you so choose. So what's the bottom line (haha! pun totally intended) with this marine algae butt mask? I don't know about how well the mask performed as far as its firming and illuminating claims go, but it was fun. If I were to describe these this mask in a few words, I'd go with: cheeky, cold, and good for giggles. 

Last time I used one of these bum beautifiers, I shared a pic of Gudetama's cheeks πŸ˜‰. Gudetama's too shy this time to parade his behind. lol. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  I love that the masks you used are called, "Oops" and "Shake It!" Definitely sounds like an entertaining masking session! πŸ˜†

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Hahaha! If I were better coordinated @Shosh85, I would do these masks together. But I can see it being a recipe for disaster for me to shake anything let alone my bum while wearing a foaming bubble mask! Lol πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  ...... well, it would kinda make sense - "shake it" followed by "oops!"  πŸ˜†

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

hahaha! Love it @Shosh85! Yes, the "oops" would definitely follow my shaking it! 🀣 Of course, it would! πŸ™„

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi Those sounds like fun masks! 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Gotta make masking fun, right @Samtian?!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi Haha. Those butt masks are a real pick me up kind of product.  You can’t help but smile while doing one.  I love sticker type masks as well. You can get things done in them. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@heartsmyface, these make for a good laugh! πŸ˜† I do like that they stay on. Got my laundry done, did some prep work for cooking, etc. All while masking my bum! Must-tasking at its best. πŸ˜‚ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

At least the bubble mask was not a complete fail @itsfi love the "too shy" reference πŸ˜†

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Lol. Modesty when it comes to those butt masks @lmaster! πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ It’s nice to have a couple of bubble masks I like if I were to want to use one. πŸ‘πŸΌ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Rock On 🎸  and B's 


-Animated Llama would make for a good band name, or maybe a DJ name? This Brightening mask works about as well as the similar Creme Shop masks. They're more cute than effective. The fit wasn't great, no discernable scent, wear time 25+ min. A bit brightening, a bit hydrating, not as cute as the penguin. C


-Generation Clay could be like a 90s style alt rock band name. Or a Clay Aiken cover band? This is a fine Clay mask, not my favorite, but nicely works to get into pores without over drying (if follow the wear time). I prefer the Origins, but for anyone who doesn't like how exfoliating that one is, this would be a good option. 


-Dragon's Blood is SUCH a good band name. I'd go see them when this is all over. These were both fine. The eye masks help depuff and brighten my under eye. The lip mask was difficult to apply and I eventually figured out to take the second mesh, and the gel mask got all twisted. I eventually got it right and it was nicely hydrating (the night before I'd done a lip scrub, so my lips needed a little more TLC). Overall good. I wouldn't repurchase either, but would use again. B/B-


-I love the Hanalei masks, and the Lychee soothing one was no exception. I needed it after using the following two. 


-Timeless Beauty Bar. Ooof these both were terrible. I got them from Ipsy. The Face the Day was a rough, paper texture which irritated my skin. I barely had it on 5 min and had to take it off. Maybe not enough a serum? But wow, was that a dream compared to the Glam and Glow one. This was immediately irritating and started to burn/tingle a bit. I took it off and things seemed okay that night but my skins been extra sensitive since then. Blah. D-/F





Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Your band names are excellent!! @haleyvvvv 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Thank you, @lmaster!!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Love the band names @haleyvvvv😁 I'm looking forward to using that lychee mask; just have to work my way through a few more in the bin first. Does it smell like lychee?

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Thank you, @itsfi!! The mask didn't really have a lychee scent.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Mask the other evening: 




I am not sure what part of this mask made my skin tingle, but no ill effects occured from it. However, I'm not a fan of tingling skin without a cause and expectation, so this will be a pass in the future. It was a light, watery mask from recollection, and did not create tackiness. 


Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@l8totheparty  Aw, yeah it’s somewhat reassuring when masks tell you some tingling is expected so you can brace for it and not worry when you sense it.
