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

@Shosh85 I have a couple of these left, I love a good fragrance,,, but like you,,I want to see it at the end of the list

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

@lmaster  Fragrance high up in the list is annoying, but it's even more annoying that it's also higher than the star ingredients πŸ˜•

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

@Shosh85 that is disappointing it didn't do a good job! I always have high expectations for pumpkin !

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

@Kim888  It was fine, just nothin' special. I'd probably put it in the filler mask category. I would've loved if it smelled like Pumpkin! 

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

@Shosh85, having the spotlight ingredient at the end of the INCI list is disappointing to say the least, and just feels wrong. πŸ˜” It seems like that is how many of the BioBelle masks are formulated. πŸ˜– There are some good ingredients in this mask though; it’s just too bad the main one wasn’t further up on the list. 

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

@itsfi  I wouldn't say this is a bad mask, just not as good as the originals. It's especially disappointing when fragrance is higher than the star ingredients πŸ˜•

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

@Shosh85, the originals were hard to beat and I can't say that my experiences with the new varieties have come close to matching the originals. Like you said, they're not bad; they're just not the original version. πŸ˜†

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

Guys while I’m hanging with you all here ( ☺️) I have a question. Lol. Forgive if it’s been covered before but I don’t always stay up to date on here tho I know I should πŸ™‚ Have any of you tried the Sio masks? Do they even count as a true mask?! πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ They frequently offer good deals and I always wonder if they are worth a go? Signed, desperate as I get older, trying not to do anything invasive etc β€¦πŸ˜­

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

@Sunnysmom I have and use them. They really don’t do much that I have noticed.  I wouldn’t waste your money on it. 

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

Oh thank you @SportyGirly125 , good to know then. Money saved. πŸ™‚ 

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

Some recent masking, with a couple that I have been longing to try for awhile now!

This was from last week, after hearing how much @Shosh85 enjoyed this brand, I picked this up and was not disappointedFirst, I finished up a little DS of the #Kiehl's Since 1851 Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask 3.4 oz/ 100 mL. I enjoyed this exfoliating detox mask, and would repurchase at some point if I ever ran low on that category of masks. Which doesn’t seem likely for the next couple of years. I used REN Clean Skincare Evercalmβ„’ Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask 1.7 oz/ 50 mL on my cheeks, something I have learned to do whenever using a harsher mask on my T-Zone. 

When I opened the Vitamasque Vegan Collagen Lychee Mask, I had one thought: I want all of my skincare to smell this good. It was very fruity, yummy, and sweet. It reminded me of passionfruit, but sweeter - ridiculously sweet! The sheet itself was a little oversize on the bottom, flapping away from my chin. The rest felt like Spanx for my face πŸ˜„ After removing 25 minutes later, my skin felt only minimally tacky. I will be trying out others, I hope they are scented as wonderfully as this one!

I finished with PAT McGRATH LABS Lip Fetish Balm Tin and the Glow Recipe Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask 2.7 oz/ 80 mL (thank you, @SportyGirly125!).

Last night I soothed my skin with the Nuori Supreme Moisture Mask. This has been for the most part a nice hydrating mask, although at times it has caused a bit of redness. My skin just seems to be sensitive at times, but thankfully last night, it was not.

The Bioderma Atoderm Lip Stick is extremely soothing and has such a pleasantly soft scent, which I never would have discovered unless @missjeanie sent it my way (thank you so much! <3). The Jeju:en Lip Hyaluron Hydrogel Lip Masks are always a kick, and I wish I remembered to use them more often. I applied one under my sheet mask, and left it on for the remainder of my masking. I couldn’t say for certain if this really does much, but it feels lovely.

I anticipated the Glamfox Ice Aloe Vera Mask to mimic the Missha Ice Cooling mask, but this was not the case. It had a fresh, clean scent, and the medium-weight sheet fit my face decently. For the weight, I was surprised that it remained adhered so well. I left it on around 20-25 minutes, and upon removing, I felt a slight cooling to my skin. It left a slight tackiness, nothing too noticeable. It was a decent filler mask, but not one I would seek out again. On the positive side - no irritation or redness!

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

@eshoe  

Those hydrogel lip masks look interesting; do you think they work or would work if used regularly?

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

@missy94612 I think with consistent use, pretty much anything will affect whatever it is you area treating to some degree. That being said…I use balm/gloss constantly. I think of these as kind of gimmicky, but in my head, feel like I am giving my skin come extra love when using πŸ™‚

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

The scent on the Lychee masks sounds wonderful, @eshoe!

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

It is pretty delicious, @quspork. A wash-off with this scent would be amazing, too! 

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

@eshoe, all of that packaging is adorable! 

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

Companies do a great job of appealing to our visual senses, don’t they @FullCoverageBB? I love the glass jars and bottles, I like to try to find a way to reuse them when possible.

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

@eshoe, nice to hear the Vitamasques lychee mask did not disappoint. It's one of my favorite masks and, like @Shosh85, I've picked up more from the brand. Did you purchase any of the other "flavors"? 

 

Isn't that Bioderm lip balm great?! A thoughtful and excellent gift from @missjeanie!

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

So far the lychee one has been the only one I have picked up, @itsfi. Not sure which one to try next, but based on this one, I anticipate good things! If there is one (or more) you recommend for the next Target run, do tell!

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

@eshoe, "one (or more)" - heehee! Appreciate the wiggle room for recs. lol. The pineapple 🍍one from this line is nice, but it does have natural exfoliating properties so it requires some extra mindfulness when it comes to scheduling when to use that one. Also the watermelon πŸ‰ from the same line is great for hydration 🌊 - it markets itself as an "electrolyte hydrating watermelon" mask which makes me think I'm putting Gatorade on my face. 🀣 Not saying that's good or bad. lol. There's also 3-step cactus mask pack that looks good - that contains salicylic acid, or one of the steps does. I'm finding that each Target store in my city has a different inventory/selection of these Vitamasques sheet masks, so yours may have other ones from the brand's different collections. Tagging @Shosh85; she may have insight on other masks from the brand.

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

@itsfi I did not see this before my run to Target today, but did pick up the Watermelon Electrolyte one! I bounced back and forth between that and the Cherry one (the Cactus, alas, was not in stock but I had already added it to my online list). I also brought home the Avatara Peach Beach…really 🀞🏼 for a fresh πŸ‘ scent on that one! @Shosh85
