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

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

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.

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.  

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

@l8totheparty  Yup, I felt some  tingling with this one too. Sorry to hear you experienced the same thing πŸ€”πŸ˜³

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

Tingling can definitely be a unwelcomed feeling if you are not expecting it! @l8totheparty 

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

Hmmm.... I literally picked this mask out of my bin the other day and then put it back. Thanks for the heads up about the tingling @l8totheparty; will keep that in mind. I should probably go now and write a note about that on the back of the mask. 

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

Oh that mask is so cute, @l8totheparty, too bad it caused tingling 😞

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

Oh I looked like a panda for sure! Lol It was a super cute mask. Alas, the tingling. @haleyvvvv @itsfi 

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

I had added on this Holler and Glow, "Fresh Outta Juice" (Watermelon) clay mask to a Target order without really knowing anything about it. I had never heard of this brand before, so it may be a Target brand. The name also reminded me of a band or song title, so we'll go with that. 

 

It's a pink clay mask. It dried down like a typical clay mask and had pretty typical clay mask effects. It was nice and refreshing, and I was surprised by how much was in the packet. I thought it was just one-time use, but there was definitely enough in there to use it twice. What I liked about it most was that it actually smelled a bit like watermelon. I thought that was cool because usually clay masks tend to smell like....clay.

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

@PrettyPaint  I tried a sheet mask from this brand and was not impressed, but this sounds much better! Will have to look out for this one, because a watermelon scented clay mask sounds wonderful! Glad you enjoyed it! πŸ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85  Oh I didn't even realize they had sheet masks. I'm not especially picky when it comes to clay masks, but it was nice to have a scented one. 

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

😌 @PrettyPaint a clay mask that smells like watermelon??? Yes please

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

@lmaster  Watermelon makes everything better! πŸ‰

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

I can see the brand name and mask name being a band name and song title @PrettyPaint! Loved that this smelled like watermelon! πŸ‰ Is this one you would repurchase?

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

@itsfi  I actually already repurchased because I needed to meet the free shipping minimum at target! πŸ™‚ I usually can't tell a huge, huge difference between clay masks (unless they are too drying), but I liked this one for sure. I am probably biased because of the scent, though! πŸ™‚
