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

@Kim888  I've never seen this one before - I love the artwork! Happy to hear the results were great too! πŸ˜ƒ

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

Isn't the packaging on this mask cute?

The bear on the packaging and the bears on the mask of this More Than Magic Carnival Treat Face Mask are super cute. Sadly that's two of the three best features this particular mask had to offer. The other "pro" to this mask (and it's not an insignificant "pro") is that it smells like vanilla cake batter. Yummy! πŸ˜‹ I'm not certain whether it's just how the mask is designed, or if I happened to get a dud, or if I've had this mask in my stash for longer than I should have, but there was little, if any, essence to this mask. It wasn't bone dry but it was far closer to that than being coated or soaked in essence. I ended up keeping the mask on for less than 5 minutes because there wasn't enough serum in it. Paired this mask with the LANEIGE Lip Glowy Balm Gummy Bear, which was nice. I'm a fan of the Laneige lip glowly lip balms and the lip sleeping masks, in all their flavors; despite not needing more of either, I still pick them up whenever a new flavor is released. Both the balm and mask version of this gummy bear favor are good. 

But, how were the actual gummy bears? Glad you asked. Haribo. They were delicious! Not too soft, not too hard. Has a good bite and chew to it.  A repeated repurchase. πŸ˜†

@itsfi - this mask is super cute; too bad it didn't have a lot of serum. hoping it's just a dud.

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

Me too, @nuinui933; me too. I may try it out again at my next sheet mask haul. 

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

@itsfi this looks like it should have been so much better, but a dried out (albeit very cute) mask, uh ohπŸ˜•

 

Thankfully you had some rescue gummy bears on standby! Those are repeats for me, too;)

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

@eshoe, I'm hoping it was just that that particular mask was a flop. I may pick up another one at a later date to see if that is the case. 

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

I haven’t tried any of those yet @itsfi @but when I pick up some of the Vitamasques I keep hearing about, I will try to remember πŸ˜‰

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

@itsfi super cute!!! And vanilla cake batter??? 🀀

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

@lmaster, the scent was sooooo good. I kept sniffing it trying to figure out what it was - it smelled so familiar and I literally went through pretty much every baked good I'm familiar with trying to pin point it. Cupcake? Not quite.  Cake? Kinda, but I don't pick up any frosting scent. And then, it hit me - vanilla cake batter!!!  πŸ˜

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

Omg that’s so cute!!!! @itsfi so disappointing it was a dud! 

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

@Kim888, the cute packaging and those adorable bear print on the masks make me think about picking up another one if I see it. My Target is currently undergoing a renovation / redesign of its interior layout so it's a bit of a challenge to find everything in one place, so I haven't seen it appear in the new sheet mask bar area that they've set up, but will go back and check once everything is in their place. 

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

That's too bad about the mask, @itsfi. I've tried a different one from this line and don't remember a specific issue with lack of serum, but I do recall that mask not being particularly wowing either so... there's that πŸ˜‚ But YAY for gummy bears! 

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

@quspork, yes, a bit of a bummer but experiences with good masks have far outweighed those with bad ones. And, no bad reaction with this one. πŸ˜‰ Gummy bears all the way! πŸ˜†

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

@itsfi  Sooo cute!.. but so odd that it was that dry! It sounds like it would've been a pretty great mask otherwise! 

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

@Shosh85, definitely odd. πŸ€”  Haven’t had anything like that happen before this. I may pick up another of these if I run across it, to give it a fair shake. 

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

@itsfi  It’s too bad the mask wasn’t moist enough. Maybe a defect? Love your review on the gummy bears!

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

@ather, I'm leaning towards it being a defect because there was so little serum in that mask and nothin' in the packet. I just haaad to get in that gummy bear review. Had to. πŸ˜‚

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

@itsfi  I wonder if there was a tiny hole in the package 

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

@ather, I hadn’t thought of that.  I didn’t notice any serum on the masks that this one was sandwiched between but it’s a possibility. πŸ€” 

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

This is off theme, but I just really wanted to try this one πŸ˜‰

OTZI Dough Therapy Pore Treatment Mask 3.38 oz/ 100 mL 

 

This white-colored, clay mask has a very interesting texture- sort of like a cross between dough and jelly. It is firm but also bouncy/jiggly at the same time. If you press your finger on top of it, it doesn't even make a dent, it just bounces back to its original form.

The scent is a little hard for me to explain - it was kind of a fresh scent that was maybe like a mix of clay and cornstarch? It was light enough that I could barely smell it while it was on my face.

I scooped a small chunk of it out, pressed it against my face and just smeared it all over. It smoothed down very nicely.

The directions say to leave it on for 5 minutes, but I left it on for more like 8. It didn't take long for it to dry - it was soft and flexible and not uncomfortable at all. Removal was easy and kind of turned into a milky consistency when I rinsed with warm water.

My face looked a little brighter and less dull, felt super soft and smooth and even had a bit of a glow. My skin did feel a touch dry, but for me that's to be expected with any kind of clay mask.

I've never used anything like this before, and I have to say, I really love it! It did everything it said it'd do! I can see this jar lasting a long time, but I'll definitely be repurchasing when I'm out!
