Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This is a wrap up from last weekโ€™s fruit and veg I theme - Pumpkin battle  

Spoiler
so I tried out three pumpkin masks last week - 

The  Purlisse Detox mask is a creamy clay mask. It does smell like pumpkin and clove though itโ€™s not a super sweet smell. It didnโ€™t dry down fully but it did get fairly dry and tight. I did experience some tingling. The exfoliating beads in this one are on the larger side. After, my pores did look slightly refined but my face also felt a bit dry.

I tried the Trader Joeโ€™s pumpkin mask as a wash off mask and an overnight mask. This one has a very light pumpkin scent but does not have that pumpkin pie thing going on. It is a gel like consistency similar to other night masks. As a wash off mask, I felt this was fairly useless. It didnโ€™t really make any difference with 10 minutes on and my face really didnโ€™t feel or look different. As an overnight mask, my face felt nicely hydrated in the morning similar to the glow recipe ones . I will definitely use again that way. 

the PTR one is already a favorite of mine and still the best of the three imo. It smells like pumpkin pie and is a great resurfacing mask that brightens  skin and exfoliates slightly but the beads arenโ€™t too large. I do experience some tingling when it first goes on

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Kim888 I laughed at your observation that the TJโ€™s mask was pretty useless as a wash-off. Iโ€™ve come to appreciate those types of masks as they fit the bill for rote skincare. No gain, but also no pain, ha! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Kim888  Oh, such a great pumpkin duel! I love that PTR pumpkin mask too - definitely a favorite! ๐ŸŽƒ 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Fabulous duels!! @Kim888 thanks for sharing these

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Kim888, nice seasonal theme to weave into your masking week. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This is a great lineup, @Kim888. I love the PTR but I might have to also seek the other two out to try now!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Kim888  I already know I love the PTR, but all of these look quite nice. The Purlisse actually looks pretty neat, although it probably would be something I would need to use in targeted areas rather than the whole face.  And I wish they would build more Trader Joe's because those pumpkin products always look so great!!  Love the pumpkin battle! ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@PrettyPaint @I do feel very ready for fall now lol 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

The L'arvore Lemon mask is very on theme.

Claims
Brightening 

Ingredients 
So many flower/plant extracts. Lemon is 10th.
Spoiler
20210918_003503~2.jpg
Fit 
Meh. Too tight around the eyes. A little short in the forehead.
Spoiler

Essence 
Clear, thin. Not a lot. 
Slight citrus smell that goes away quickly.
No tack. 

Wear Time 
10-20. I wore about 15. Mask was starting to dry. 

Effect 
None really? Like a slight hydration. 

Grade 
D. Wouldn't repurchase, had no effect, a bad fit and I don't like extracts being used in place of the actives especially so low in the ingredient list. But it didn't harm me. 

Rael Beauty Vitamin C Brighten+Glow Mask

Now this I really like. I don't remember the full list of things, but I have a few more so I'll take better notes over the next few weeks.

This was fine. Definitely some pore refining but fit was terrible.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@haleyvvvv  Too bad the L'arvore mask wasn't anything special, but I'm glad the Rael mask could make up for it! I've only tried two Rael masks, but liked them both! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I was so pleasantly surprised by the Rael mask. Glad to hear they're also winners for you, @Shosh85!!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Oh wow @haleyvvvv, there are a lot of floral extracts in that first mask. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I actually made a ๐Ÿ˜ฌ face when I ran through the INCI list. Glad to hear that your skin didnโ€™t experience any irritation from it but I can see how itโ€™s not a mask youโ€™d repurchase. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Definitely not a repurchase, @itsfi, but since I got it as a sample or part of a pack, it's not so bad.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I'm glad the Rael is a good one!!! @haleyvvvv 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Thank you, @PrettyPaint!! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@haleyvvvv @I agree about those nose masks - they are very confusing to me 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

They are SO confusing, @Kim888!! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

That's too bad about the first one, @haleyvvvv, you'd think you could at least get a decent amount of brightening out of a lemon mask. But the Rael sounds promising!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I was very surprised about the L'avore mask, @quspork!! I had heard good things. I have a couple other "flavors" of them and I'm curious if they're all like the lemon ones. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

โ€œBut it didn't harm me.โ€ 

Way to make lemonade out of a lemon, @haleyvvvv ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ‹!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Lol, it's my standard D grade reasoning, @eshoe. it didn't work but since it didn't cause any negative side effects, not a true fail. ๐Ÿ˜‚
