Ohhhh nice to see a new mask that's worth trying more of!! @itsfi 

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

There are so many sheet mask brands out there @lmaster! πŸ˜ƒ It ensures our faces will

always have sheet masks! πŸ˜‚

P is for prickly pear (aka cactus) πŸŒ΅

Without being drippy or feeling weighed down, the soft, pliable cotton cupra of the SNP Jeju Cactus Mask πŸŒ΅ holds a lot of essence, which here, has a clear, lightweight, slightly viscous, light, fresh and somewhat herbal/plant scented consistency. The mask adheres beautifully and with a few incisions here and there, can yield a tailored fit. Results-wise, the mask lives up to its hydrating claims, leaving my skin feeling and looking refreshed, smooth and more plump. πŸ’š It also did a nice job of calming and reducing redness, making it a good fit any time of the day, including part of a morning skincare routine and in preparation for makeup application. Thank you @Shosh85  πŸ€— for sending this one my way; it's definitely repurchase-worthy. πŸ‘

The Chesapeake Bay Candle Cactus Pear Home Scent has a clean, fresh, fruity-ish scent that is refreshing and the throw is pretty good. The scent is a nice one in the kitchen and bedroom; the throw doesn't quite fill up a larger space, like the family or living room.

I picked up a subtle mix of tart and fruity flavors from the Tazo Prickly Pear Cactus Herbal Tea🍡 Not sure how folks feel about tartness in their teas; I didn't mind it at all, but it may not be for everyone. I do think this one might work well for an iced tea, maybe adding some honey infused ice cubes to it before serving. πŸ˜‹

The light tint from the Sonoran Rosie Prickly Pear Cactus Lip Balm is a hit with me. β™₯️ I've been keeping at my desk while working from home and this may be one of a few I keep at my work desk when it comes time to being there more regularly.

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

All of the prickly pear goodness in this photo is very appealing @itsfi! That mug is especially cute, what a clever design.

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

Thank you @eshoe. The mask was wonderful and it was fun to pull a few prickly pear items together to mask with. πŸŒ΅

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

@itsfi  Soo happy you liked the sheet mask! It's been awhile since I tried it and I lost my notes on it, so it's good to hear your thoughts! 

 

Also, that cactus mug is the best πŸ˜ƒπŸŒ΅

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

Thank you again for sending this one to me @Shosh85! I really am finding SNP to be a solid brand for sheet masks. Ones like this cactus mask definitely raise its profile. The mug is a lot of fun; I sometimes just set it on a table and use it to hold my lipbalms or lip glosses. Ha! πŸŒ΅

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

Yes for cactus!! @itsfi 

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

It’s got such good soothing and hydrating properties @lmaster; and rich in vitamins too! 🌡 

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

@itsfi Ooh I love Prickly Pear!! I'm going to have to look these ones up.

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

@Samtian, the only prickly pear things I remember having are these jelly candies and a prickly pear margarita, though I didn't have them at the same time. I may have had it in a salad once but I just don't remember for certain. After using this mask, I am interested in actually trying prickly pear. 🌡 Will have to look for them around here and also for a recipe that I can't mess up. πŸ˜‚

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

Oooh that mask sounds great @itsfi !!

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

It made for a very nice masking time @Kim888😁 I've been impressed with the SNP sheet masks that I've used so far.

I'm sad I couldn't smell this one haha. This is just a filler mask for me. Nothing negative, but no results either.

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

@Samtian well that is a bummer to miss out on the scent on this one. No irritation is something I often forget to note when a mask is otherwise blah. You are a masking hero for always looking for the positive!

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

Awwwww @Samtian darn!! Wish there was some great scent that came thru for you!

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

Aw, I'm sorry you missed out on the scent for this one, @Samtian. That was one of the perks for this mask for me. And I agree with you on it being mostly a filler mask. Nothing wrong with having a few of those around!

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

@Samtian  Awww, I'm so sorry you couldn't smell it. It's been a long time since I used this one, but I think I recall it being nice but not incredible. But I do think I enjoyed the scent.

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

@PrettyPaint Thank you! I'll have to see what my mom thinks when she tries hers.

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

@Samtian, agree, this one isn't bad, but it's not a standout, other than the super cute packaging. I find a lot of The Creme Shop masks to fall in the filler mask category. I do like the scent on this one though - I am so sorry you haven't gotten your sense of smell back yet. 

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

@itsfi Fillers are better than negative reactions lol so I'll take it.
