Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

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).

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

mask with numbers theme

IMG_20210122_175038646.jpg

  • โ€ƒalthough I'm not sure what exactly the numbers mean, this sheet fits the theme ๐Ÿ˜† gifted to me by the kindest of hearts @WinglessOne thank you!!
  • This sheet was highly saturated in a clear serum that smelled sort of light herbal. Tons of extra serum 
  • The fit on this one was larger on the sides than most masks I've used, so I did some folding in areas, otherwise the sheet stayed out the entire time
  • Wear time was 20 minutes
  • After removing, holy hydration!!! This mask definitely delivers some much needed hydration and it plumped up my skin wonderfully, lightly moisturized and looked more radiant
  • I noticed a touch of tackiness that lasted about 5 minutes
  • This is a great sheet, especially in the winter where I live, it's brutal and extreme low temps, so my skin was more than happy with these results

 

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

@lmaster  Yay, I'm glad you loved this mask! I like this mask serum better than the bottled Raw Sauce essenceโ€”and I used to loooooove Raw Sauce. Definitely a great choice for our current weather conditions. ๐Ÿ‘

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

@WinglessOne thank you thank you!!! This mask literally saved my skin, I had no idea how much hydration I was lacking until I seen how my skin just soaked this serum up!!

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

@lmaster  This looks amazing. I have only tried the raw sauce by this brand (which I like a lot), but now I want to seek out this mask! ๐Ÿ™‚

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

@PrettyPaint it was a skin saver for me, I have to go out every night in the cold to lock the chickens in their coop and lock the barn doors, it's been pretty darn cold around 15-25 degrees (could be worse) and my skin has definitely felt underhydrated! 

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

@lmaster  Oooh, I love this one! The raw sauce is pretty awesome too! So happy to hear you loved it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜

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

@Shosh85 what is your take on the scent? It was hard for me to pinpoint, I was feeling like it had a light herbal scent ๐Ÿคท 

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

@lmaster  It's been awhile, but my notes say "a light clean & fresh scent" ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป 

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

Ok @Shosh85 I knew it was not an overpowering scent that jumped at me, in my mind, I was thinking herbal/clean. Still could not pinpoint, thank you

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

This is one of my favorite sheet masks @lmaster! I really love the May Coop Raw Sauce essence. Regarding the numbers, here's information from yesstyle dot com:

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

Thank you so much for this info!! @itsfi 

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

@itsfi @lmaster  I also found this on the May Coop website..... just a tad different than yesstyle's version: ๐Ÿ˜‰
