@sister13

A hydrating sheet mask that takes away redness sounds right up my alley. Going to pick up that variety set.

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

Yes, it’s a nice set! @missy94612  This Aqua one didn’t have much scent at all, but I’m also not very sensitive to fragrance.  I was trying to remember to notice for my review this time and definitely thought it had almost no scent this time but I trust you are right about these in general, masking queen! 😍😍 @eshoe 

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

@missy94612 @as long as you don’t mind a little scent, the Lapcos are great. They are fragranced, which is just a bonus to know ahead of time if you are planning to pick up a pack!

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

@sister13 I didn't realize the Wander lip oil had a tint either!  Great combo.  Glad you get another day to take some time this weekend. 

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

Yes, I think this was a Sephora code gwp, I looked it up, they have a few different tints to the full size, was just surprised by this one, though not in a bad way! @missjeanie 

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

B is for Herbivore Blue Tansy. Today my masking routine was pretty simple. I cleansed, patted my face dry with a clean towel and applied the mask. I left it on for 20 min. The mask has a blue tinge to it and it was a gel like consistency. I have to admit I didn't get much done this weekend so I cleaned the bathroom while the mask was doing it's thing. After wiping off my my skin felt a bit tighter and a bit dry. I applied Honest Beauty Hydrogel Cream to finish.

Theme: Share your Mask Routine - When I have more time after cleansing I used my face steamer before applying the mask so my pores are more open. I finish off with serum of choice and a moisturizer.

@Mellmars1185  Sounds decent enough! I'm usually multitasking while I mask too πŸ˜‰

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

@Mellmars1185 I did like this mask, but I noticed after about a month or so, it just doesn't perform like it does freshly opened 🀷

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

Mask while you task! Love it @Mellmars1185πŸ’ž Love the photo too. Is this Herbivore mask one you'd consider purchasing a full size?

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

@itsfi Hehe I like that! Although it was a nice mask experience. It did not leave my skin feeling hydrated or extra smooth so I would not buy the full size.

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

@Mellmars1185, have you tried Peach & Lily Super Reboot Resurfacing Mask? It's similar to the Herbivore in that it is intended to exfoliate and smooth skin. It also contains hyaluronic acid, cica, chamomile and aloe to help soothe and hydrate the skin. I use it in the warmer months to unclog pores along my chin and jawline. It can tingle but does a good job for me. 

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

@Mellmars1185 I love your jars, very pretty🀩 That mask is refreshing, if the scent isn’t too strong for your liking. Great idea to mask while cleaning, I might need to copy you in that tomorrow!

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

@eshoe Thank you!

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

@Mellmars1185 Very cool! I've been eyeing that blue tansy and I think I have a little sample somewhere but I'm taking a break from Herbivore this year, lol.

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

@QueenMarceline Lol! I think I recall you had a bad experience with the Herbivore Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Smoothing Serum 1.0 oz/ 30 mL ? There are plenty more fish in the sea 🌊

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

@Mellmars1185 Yes it was that product, how do you like the Blue Tansy?

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

@QueenMarceline It was nice to try as a sample. I don't feel like it did anything beneficial for my skin except for temporarily made it feel tightened. It has a light floral scent. I wouldn't purchase a full size but it was not a bad experience.

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

@Mellmars1185 I'll had to give my sample a shot once my skin calms down a bit from that mishap, it's... been a struggle.

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

Today is a "boring" day (at least for me, since I'm not trying anything new) I'm doing a porch gift exchange with some friends and I haven't been getting as much sleep as I liked. These eye gels are my "go-to" and probably (definitely) the ones I have the most of, I just re-stocked on a bunch of large bags of these during the 21 day sale when they were 50% off and they seem to make an appearance on the 21 day sale at ULTA at least once or twice a year, which is great for me. I have turned my sister and mom on to these eye gels as well that's why during the sale I also got them each a pack. Today I decided to simply wash my face, put on some moisturizer, serum and then slapped these on. I don't have much time for a routine/makeup (plus, it's a porch exchange and then I'm running errands lol) so I figured these would be perfect to give me a bit of a boost on this afternoon.

Key Ingredients (off ULTA site):

  • Hydrolyzed extensin helps skin cells lock in moisture, plumping fine lines and wrinkles and helping to restore tone and firmness
  • Ginkgo biloba leaf extract improves blood flow to brighten the under-eye area and help reduce puffiness
  • Acetyl hexapeptide-8 helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by calming muscles under the skin
  • Coenzyme Q10, a powerful antioxidant, helps fight free radicals
  • Icelandic Complex, a proprietary natural blend that replenishes the nutrients that stress depletes

 

My Thoughts:

Spoiler
As previously mentioned, these are my most used eye gels so I really do enjoy them. They have an outer "sheet" sticker and an inner (the part that touches your eye) gel-like consistency. The gel is always a bit cool to the touch and it really feels nice against the skin, especially the under eye area. I always use these as a quick refreshment but to be honest, at full price without the discount I usually get them for... I think they're a bit "up there" in price for what they do. They do indeed slightly depuff the eyes but if you have dark circles or want a brightening/tightening effect these are not it. I would describe them as the perfect, mediocre, go-to, reach for when you don't want to think about it type-of-eye-mask. Probably exactly why I like them so much, I'm sure there is definitely better eye masks out there that target fine lines, dark circles, bags-but I don't typically have a very large struggle with those ailments (only sometimes).

I genuinely enjoy the cooling effect, I feel that they "wake me up" in the morning and the consistency is really nice. One of my favorite parts is that they aren't messy, this isn't an eye gel that is drenched in serum or one that comes out sticky, wet and causes a mess. These are truly unique in that sense, they have an outer layer that is a sheet and an inner eye gel with the serum already infused into the "gel-like" padding on the inside of the eye mask. The gel padding adheres very gently but securely to the eye (unlike some other masks that can be slippery). Wherever you place these, they will stay until you take them off. The wear time for these states 10 minutes but I keep them on until the gel stops being cooling and refreshing and leans towards a bit uncomfortable-that's my usual "sign" (which is around the 15 minute mark). After wearing these the under eye feels gently hydrated and very refreshed.

Ps. Please ignore the dog hair on the mask, I was in the bathroom doing my routine and I could not say no to the puppy dog face so I invited her to come hangout in the bathroom with me. Then I just had to pet her, you know? πŸ˜‚
