Oh no?!! Disturbing pictures @Shosh85?! That doesn’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.


We’re masking twins when it comes to the creepy baby face masks. Hahaha!

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

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

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

Maybe I’ll hand out creepy baby face masks for Halloween this year @Shosh85!! πŸ˜‚ 

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

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

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

For the numbers theme, I went with a tried and true favorite 😍 Pulled this one from Masks on the Move πŸ˜‰




Hectic It's Pack Time AM 7:00 Mask

This is a two piece mask that had a plastic coating on the outside and a soft cloth kind of material on the inside - it kinda reminded me of a mud sheet mask. Only the inside was coated with a thick white creamy essence, that looked similar to lotion. It had a light and fresh, lotion-y kinda scent - maybe a slight hint of fruity/floral in there. It was pretty pleasant and not too noticeable while the mask was on. As with most two piece masks, the fit was perfect. It adhered well and was very comfortable to wear. I took it off after about 35 minutes. The serum leftover felt soothing as I messaged it in and it wasn't tacky at all. My face was a little brighter and had a more awake/less dull kinda look. My skin felt soft and smooth, nicely hydrated and had such a nice glow!

I loved this one and will definitely be repurchasing!





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

@Shosh85  Oh, I keep meaning to try this one! The packaging is so fun. So glad to see the results are nice too.

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

@PrettyPaint  It really is a fun one and the material is so unique! Would definitely like to try the others! πŸ˜ƒ

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

This one sounds really good @Shosh85! 😍 Interesting that it reminds you of a mud sheet mask but your description of the material makes that make sense. I will have to put this one on my list, and maybe use it at 7:00am. πŸ˜ The names on this line of masks are cute. 

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

@itsfi This is such a good one! Even though I am awake at 7:00 AM, I'm not sure I'm awake enough to mask.... but I'm sure a cold sheet would wake me up though! πŸ˜† Have you had the chance to try any of these?

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

I don't think I've tried any of the ones from this brand/line @Shosh85. I can't remember how many there are - 7:00am and 10:00pm are the only ones that come to mind, but I feel like I've seen a mid-afternoon one. Maybe that's just me though and I feel like there should be one for mid-afternoon masking? πŸ˜† I saw them a few times at Nordstrom Rack pre-covid but I was actually being good then about my no-buy! πŸ€£ I know; that is actually possible. πŸ˜…

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

@itsfi  What, you actually stuck to your no-buy? That's unheard of! Haha! Good job Fi! 

These are the masks I've seen.... unaware if there's any others. 


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

Ooouh; thanks @Shosh85! Does that top left say β€œ1:00am?” 😳 I’m sure it’s marketed for use after a night on the town. For me though that 1:00am mask would be for use when I get up in the wee hours of the morning and can’t get back to sleep. πŸ˜” There is a mask for every occasion, it seems. 😝 Seeing these, I’m not sure I’ve used any. 

I know! I’m shocked myself really about the sheet mask no buy. πŸ˜‚ It even happened pre-covid and lasted months, plural. Crazy! Of course, the more recent months, with the stay at home, the no buy has been a lot easier (broken by my purchase of the JLo mask), which has made possible a sheet mask collection that now fits neatly (as opposed to spilling over) in a bin. ☺️ 

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

It was a numbers theme earlier this week. 

Avocado - 5 step b.jpgAvocado - 5 step a.jpg

My initial impression after using the JiiNJU 5 Step Travel Kit Vacay Glow earlier in the week was that the cleansing oil (Step 1) was my favorite of the steps (I loved the lightness of the oil and it did a pretty nice job for a first cleanse), followed by the toner (Step 3) and the sheet mask (Step 4), which while overall very large, adhered well and left my skin feeling plump and moisturized. Both the cream cleanser (Step 2) and the moisturizer (Step 5) were thicker than I prefer with the cream cleanser being more challenging to spread and massage over my face without first thinning it out with water.

Unfortunately, my impression of the mask changed the next day when I noticed that I broke out from something in one or possibly all of the products. Ugh. There's another D, for D'oh!!!! Fortunately, the reaction wasn’t as bad as it could have been and for that I’m grateful. It's better now, almost as it was like before I used the mask. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the fun theme @emaisgr8


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

Wow, 5 steps! I think that's the most I've seen packaged together in a single mask, @itsfi. It'd be a great idea for a travel kit. That's too bad something didn't agree with your skin though! 

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

I was surprised and impressed that there was a 5-step pack like this @quspork, with both skincare and a mask. I feel like this is something that would translate well for brands like CosRx, Etude House and Missha -  traditional skincare and sheet masks from those brands tend to be good overall. 

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

Boo to breakouts, @itsfi!! Too bad, it was such cute packaging 


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

Yes @haleyvvvv, I agree - boo to breakouts! (Lol; autocorrect wanted to say boo to breakfast!). The packaging is super cute; perhaps a reminder not to judge a book by its cover. I am curious to know what I’m these items broke me out. Not so curious to try each step again but separately. πŸ˜† 

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

@itsfi  This one goes so nicely with the theme. Sorry you had a breakout, though. I feel like I almost picked this one up at some point...but ultimately decided against it. Maybe because I'm really bad at opening up packaging like that. Whenever I am in the shower and have a sample shampoo/conditioner packet, I wind up having to tear it open with my teeth (which I find kinda gross and hate doing). I usually end up with a mouthful of shampoo, too.

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

I so relate @PrettyPaint to getting a mouthful of shampoo / conditioner when trying to open a foil packet in the shower. Blech! πŸ˜Ÿ If I remember, I try to reach for my scissors to snip off the corner before jumping in the shower. Doesn't always go according to plan though.


It's too bad this set didn't work out; would have been handy for the next time travel is an option. Just thankful my reaction wasn't too bad and that, for the most part, no more bumps. 



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

@itsfi Hmmm, I don't think I've ever seen a 5 step mask before! I love how colorful it is πŸ˜ƒ

It's too bad it made you break out! I wonder if it was caused by steps 2 and 5, since they were so thick. I know there's been some thick moisturizers that have caused break-outs for me. Could you tell if there's any ingredients that might've been the culprit(s)?

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

@Shosh85, I have a feeling it was all the pretty colors that made me pick it up; it looks fun and I thought it might be a good one to pack with me when I had a one-day trip. At first, I thought it might be the yucca root extract in the moisturizing cream because I don't recall using anything with that ingredient in it before this 5-piece set, but that's not an ingredient in the cleansing foam wash. Yucca root extract is also in the toner though. All steps seem to contain limonene, linalool and fragrance - maybe having so much of those products collectively is what caused me to break out? Hmmm....
