@itsfi  Good thing I like basil ! πŸ™‚  

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

Today was all about honeyπŸ’›πŸ―5912C5B3-2CD7-4CE0-912B-FBB3C828B1D8.jpeg

 I forgot how much I love honey potion. I think it is my favorite wash off mask. I love the warming sensation and it always makes my skin so soft. The BioBelle unicorn glow is my favorite BioBelle mask. It has lots of serum, makes my skin glowy and hydrated, and doesn’t feel tacky. I almost let it expire😬 I have to be more consistent in masking because I have several more that will expire the next few months. I wish they would make the Briogeo honey mask permanent, it smells so good and my hair loves it.

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

I've not tried the briogeo honey hair mask!! @faeriegirl I need to, hopefully it will come back again

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

Yes, love the Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask , @faeriegirl!! It is definitely also one of my faves. Great honey line up!!

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

@faeriegirl  What a perfect honey grouping. I have all of these and love them. That's so funny that you mentioned the biobelle almost expiring, because I just realized I have several of these that are about to expire as well. I had them in my 2021 box and hadn't looked through it until recently. 

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

We were masking twins with the Farmacy:) @faeriegirl 

 

That Briogeo mask is really good, and the fact that they brought it back for the holidays give me hope it may become a permanent fixture 🀞🏼

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

@faeriegirl I have a travel size of the Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask that I've only used once and there's at least a few uses left in it; I'd nearly forgotten about it so now that I've seen your post I'll have to "shop my stash" and dig mine out πŸ―.

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

@faeriegirl  Oooh, one of my most favorite themes/ingredient! I love everything you used here...... absolutely agree they should bring the Briogeo Bear back permanently! 🍯

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

Yes to honey themed masking @faeriegirl! 😍 Love all your choices here and I 100% agree with making the Briogeo honey hair mask permanent. I was happy to see they brought it back during the holidays but making it part of their collection year round would be even better! πŸ’›πŸ―πŸ’›πŸ―

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

The mask I will be using this week will be the Aloe Vera from Sephora. These ones are the most hydrating ones.

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

Great choice, @Sabah55! Have you tried any of the eye masks? The caffeine one is especially nice☺️

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

Yea I use the caffeine one from Inkey. I use the eye one.

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

@Sabah55  Always a good idea to have Aloe masks on-hand! πŸ˜ƒ

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

@Sabah55 love aloe! 

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

@Sabah55, aloe is so refreshing and a wonderful hydrator! πŸ˜

Wash Off Mask:

Spoiler
Papa Recipe Eggplant Clearing Mud Cream Mask is an unscented, purple hued kaolin clay mask containing walnut shell powder for a gentle physical exfoliation and several soothing and hydrating ingredients to keep skin from drying out. It’s one I’ve used before, last fall. I liked it then and I like it now. πŸ’œ

What I Like:So many things to like about this mask:
  • Unscented
  • Gentle exfoliation
  • Doesn’t harden or dry down
  • Cleanses without stripping skin of natural oils; no irritation, no tightness
  • Baby soft, smooth, clear, brightened skin
  • Easy to apply and wash off
  • Fun purple color
 
Area(s) for Improvement:

None, as far as I'm concerned.
Overall Thoughts:I purchased a set of 10 of these capsules and have quite a few more left. These capsules sure come in handy for travel but that's won't likely be in the cards for me for quite some time (and that's fine). After I've gone through these capsules, I'll likely pick up a full-size tube of this one. I like the gentle but effective exfoliation it provides and can see it being put to good use as an aid for clearing out my nose and the oilier, clogged areas around my nose.
 

Sheet Mask:

Spoiler
The cotton fiber material of the XOY Eggplant Mask is soft and thin to make it feel beautifully comfortable against the skin but is also sturdy enough to hold in the clear, slightly viscous and unscented essence it is saturated in without any of it dripping.
 
What I Like:
  • soft, thin-ish sheet wears comfortably against the skin
  • results were great - my skin looked and felt refreshed and hydrated
  • ingredients list is pretty good
Area(s) for Improvement:Not readily accessible
Overall ThoughtsThis is a good mask, but I'm not so enamored with it to consider it a "must have" mask. It's certainly a sheet mask I would happily use again and one I would repurchase as well, but it's not one I'd necessarily rush out to repurchase.

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

I'm intrigued by the Papa Recipe eggplant wash off mask, @itsfi!! It sounds amazing. I've been using some of the Papa Recipe eggplant skincare and it's been hit and miss, so I'm not sure how similar it would be.

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

@haleyvvvv, the PR eggplant mask is super gentle. I can see it being too gentle for some folks. Which of the products in the eggplant line did you enjoy most? I’ve tried their honey propolis ampoule and thought it was good. πŸ‘πŸΌ

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

@itsfi I really likes the cleanser, lol, but the cream, emulsion and clearing skin were a bit too drying (and I didn't even layer them, I used them one at a time) and they didn't really clear my skin. I used the non cream items on my partner for spot treating and they were okay. I have Tea Tree products, to try for clearing, but I am also a weary to try. The honey products look lovely though. 

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

@haleyvvvv, so sorry to hear they were so drying. Ugh! πŸ˜– That’s always a challenge with clearing products. Lately, my main go to’s for clearing products have been the Peach & Lily Reboot Resurfacing Mask and the Origins Clear Improvementβ„’ Charcoal Honey Mask to Purify and Nourish 2.5 oz/ 75 mL. I use the Origins one on areas where I tend to be more dry; the honey helps. The Peach & Lily is good for decongesting clogged pores; it can be drying so I tend to concentrate it on the oilier parts of my face.

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

It is!! That's why I really like the Farmacy BHA toner for maintenance pore decongesting and the Sunday Riley UFO oil for spot treatment, both work well on my dry skin.

I'll have to try out the Honey and Charcoal mask, @itsfi !! I like the regular charcoal mask and my partner uses it, but I like the Boscia one better. Maybe I'll pick him up the Honey Charcoal one and try it that way, lol.
