Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@PrettyPaint, I've tried 2 of the creepy baby face masks - the one in the yellow and blue packaging which I think is for hydration and then I think there's one that orange and teal, but I don't recall what the purpose of that one was. So (and I have to tag @Shosh85 about this), I just typed "creepy baby face mask" to do a search and those Dr. Jart masks pop up!!! ๐Ÿคฃ True story.


Another true story . . . a while back I was in a Sephora store and they had the creepy baby face masks on one of the shelves. I don't remember exactly how many, maybe half a dozen? And they assembled them in a pyramid of sorts with all the creepy baby face lid facing outward, so that that is what everyone saw. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฉ  Let's just say that someone rearranged the display so that the cups were all standing upright with the creepy baby face and the "straw" poking out of the baby's mouth was facing the ceiling, rendering it not visible to passersby. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ 


Ahhh, Mediheal N.M.F., that is such a great mask! ๐Ÿ’™ The Farmacy one too! 



Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  Oh you are hilarious!! And brave for trying them. I also just googled creepy baby face and there were these disturbing clay macarons and even more scary food-related creepy baby face items. Apparently this is a thing. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@PrettyPaint, after reading your post, I just haaaad to type in "clay macarons creepy baby face" to see what would pop up. My eyes!! My eyes!!! ๐Ÿคฃ I scrolled through the article on nerdist (dot) com and saw the ice cream cone with the creepy baby face macarons! Ohhhh my. I may never look at macarons or a scoop of ice cream the same again! lol. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  haha!  "Creepy Baby Face Mask" is apparently their new name now! ...and no creepy-baby-face-pyramid for me, thank you ๐Ÿ˜‚ I must ask though, where did you type it in?..... I Googled it and some super disturbing pictures came up ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚..... also, those are the two I've tried as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰The orange and teal is the "Luminous" one. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Oh no?!! Disturbing pictures @Shosh85?! That doesnโ€™t sound good. I put it into Google and it showed pics of the mask - the cup and the creepy baby face. It also pulled up articles from beauty based publications and I saw a reference to the writer saying the  lid looks like a creepy baby face with a stick coming out of its mouth. Lol.


Weโ€™re masking twins when it comes to the creepy baby face masks. Hahaha!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  All that comes up for me are some super creepy baby face Halloween masks. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Maybe Iโ€™ll hand out creepy baby face masks for Halloween this year @Shosh85!! ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  Haha! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I think you're on to something! Definitely a fun handout at an adult Halloween party! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Masking with numbers, with 100% Camillia Japonica oil:



Theร‚ Suqqu Moisture Rich Maskhas been reviewed here before; it is a comforting and hydrating mask that is very thick, jelly-like and subtly rose-scented. It turns from a clear gel to milky when applied with anything more than a light touch. From what I've read online, you don't want it to turn white, but I find it difficult to do this as I cover my face. It is one I reach for often, but can't say I would repurchase it as there are other options for hydration that seem to work just as well.


The Starskin 100% Camellia Nourishing & Brightening is a 2-step mask. The first part is a capsule composed of 100% oil from camellia japonica seeds. It is considered to be a dry oil, because it doesnโ€™t leave the skin feeling oily. It was scentless, and absorbed quickly. After using a generous amount, I still had almost 2/3 remaining. The mask itself had a single protective coating, and appeared to have a mesh-like texture. The fit was comfortable, and after smoothing down, adhered to my skin for the next 30 or so minutes. After removing, I found my skin pleasantly plumped, with minimal tack. No redness, irritation, or swelling - this one was a winner! I would love to use this again, everything about it felt like a special treat.





  To finish, I applied a layer of the Tatcha The Kissu Lip Mask 0.32 oz/ 9g on my lips and Glow Recipe Mini Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask 1 oz/ 30 mL. I meant to apply the remaining camellia seed oil before falling asleep, but since I didn't, I will use it tonight. My skin felt smooth this morning, a tad dry, but I think the oil would help in sealing it all in. I have a feeling that might not be the correct order, I always seem to get the two mixed up! Either way, it was a very pleasant masking. Thank you @emaisgr8, loved this week's challenge idea!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe  This whole combination looks so nice. I haven't tried the suqqu mask, but I have a special place in my heart for suqqu products. And I am 95% sure I have that sheet mask somewhere - now I need to find it! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

The mask was from last yearโ€™s June Allure box, @PrettyPaint. The same one with the watermelon Pรผrlisse charcoal cleanser.


Do you have any beauty items form Suqqu? I love how they look and the fact they are sheer (though I personally have never tried them). The brushes are what first caught my eye, but I havenโ€™t tried those yet, either. Maybe some day!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe  Aha!  - that's probably why I have that mask. I did have an allure subscription back then (I cancelled when they raised the price). I always misplace sheet masks when they come in beauty boxes.


I haven't purchased suqqu in a couple of years so I'm not sure if their shadows are still the same, but really do love their eye shadows and enjoy their sheer texture. I also like their liquid eyebrow pen. I really wish suqqu was easier to obtain in the US. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@PrettyPaint I really hope to try their blushes and shadows at some point. The sheerness is what appeals to me, too!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe, camellia oil is a wonderful ingredient for dry skin. Nice to hear the Starskin mask worked out so well for you.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

You recently used another two-step camellia mask, too @itsfi - I think it was one from Facetory๐Ÿค” It seems like a good oil to have on hand for winter! Usually I just mist and tone prior to a sheet mask, it was good to get out of the everyday box and try a new method.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe, the mask was from the brand Blossom Jeju ~ I think all of their products are centered around camellia oil. It was one of the brands curated by Glow Recipe before they made their own products. Have you tried applying a sheet mask after your essence and serum step? That's another method.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

No, I havenโ€™t tried that, @itsfi; it sounds like it would be a good way to encourage the skin to soak up extra moisture. Will test it out this week, although with all the rains it doesnโ€™t feel like the typical dry winter! โ„๏ธ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe, I usually go through my skincare routine through my serum / ampoule step, then a sheet mask, then my moisturizer + oil. It's been raining here every few days, which is good; we really need the rain.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

That makes a lot of sense, @itsfi. I am mixing it up a bit, now if I can just retrain my brain to remember it every night;) The rains have been wonderful! We are headed to play in the snow today, itโ€™s nice to have some winter weather!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe  Sounds like such a great masking session! I've never tried anything from Starskin, but this mask sounds lovely- definitely a special treat! So happy you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

It was, @Shosh85! Using the rest of the camellia oil tonight, too. I found it online, might just pick up a small bottle at some point to incorporate in dry weather pre-sheet masking:)


Iโ€™ve tried the prickly pear mask form Starskin, and am currently using the celery juice cleansing balm which is so, so gentle (but more than I want to spend on a cleanser ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ).
