Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

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

@itsfi I really like those waffle masks but like you said I got to use them when my skin is extra thirsty (oily skin here😁) excellent job on the pictures as usual. 😍🀀

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

Well hello there, waffle mask enabler @sonnydee!! πŸ˜Š  And, thank you for that. Your enabling abilities are always great. These are definitely best suited when skin is dry or dehydrated or parched from the weather or a long day in the sum. I like that there's a lot of the gel serum now, but come summertime when I'm more combo/combo leaning oily, these waffle masks will be too much. Ahhh, thanks; I only took snaps of the good ones - trust me, some were definitely not ready for their close up. πŸ˜‚

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

@itsfi  

You're enabling more sheet mask purchases and waffle brunches. πŸ˜‚ My husband has proposed that we do monthly waffle brunches and waffle sheet masks. My daughter is all on board (with the waffles) and she's already let us know the order - no surprise that ice cream is first. 

 

Do you use a mix for the gf waffles or make your own?

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

@missy94612, hahaha! Love it! πŸ’“ That's awesome that your daughter has put together an order for the waffles and sheet mask flavors. Of course, ice cream is first! The question though is, what flavor ice cream will your daughter want? πŸ˜† I followed the recipe for "Easy Gluten Free Oat Waffles" from Cookie + Kate for these waffles.

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

@itsfi

My daughter is over the moon that you've asked about her choice of ice cream and was putting a list, a rather long one, together. Her first choice is rocky road (for now at least), followed by chocolate and then cookies and cream and then chocolate again. 

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

@missy94612, she’s got good taste! 😍 All excellent choices! 🍨 

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

So cute and lovely! And your waffles look amazing too! @itsfi 

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

Thank you @sister13! The packaging is really cute; love that they perform well too. Gel serums can be too thick for some, but I just love β€˜em in the cooler months. πŸ˜ƒ

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

Mmmm the waffles look delicious, @itsfi! Gluten-free always seem to taste sweeter (and crispier!) to me. It was fun to read your mask rankings, too. And masking twice a day in the winter sounds like a great way to keep flaky skin at bay πŸ˜‰  

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

@eshoe, upping the hydrating products has been helpful for me this winter, and the weekends lend themselves to more masking time. 

Interesting about how gluten free taste sweeter to you. I haven’t noticed gf foods tasting sweeter; I notice more of a difference in texture. 

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

With almond flour, @itsfi, it seems like it brings out the sweetness. I made GF/DF berry muffins this week with coconut flour and they were incredibly crumbly. They completely apart while trying to eat them, made for a very messy breakfast. Next time, back to almond flour😁

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

@eshoe, I don't think I have used coconut flour before but will make a note about it being crumbly. πŸ—’ I used oat flour (certified gluten free one) for these. 

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

@itsfi oooooh why didn’t I think of that! Oats in a coffee grinder when in a pinch, noted.

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

@itsfi They look super eye-catching, where did you find these? I'd love to try the blueberry and the honey πŸ™‚

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

@QueenMarceline, I found a variety set of these waffle masks last year at Marshalls of all places. πŸ₯° I’ve seen the set at Amazon and you can pick one up as well as the individual flavors direct from Kocostar.

 

If you try one or more of these, do let us know how they work out. 

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

@itsfi I do see them on Amazon! πŸ™‚ I think I will pick up a set, going to throw them in my wish list now. My skin is currently doing some insanely weird things after a horrible reaction from Herbivore Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Smoothing Serum 1.0 oz/ 30 mL (literally almost a MONTH ago) so I've been avoiding trying new skin-care as much as I usually do especially recently because I don't think I can properly assess what I'm trying with whats happening on my face... which, really stinks. I have so many things I bought even from December hauls that I've been dying to try out, right now I'm feeding my fix by dipping into more eye products and trying those out since I think I can still fairly assess those products despite what is happening to my skin right now. I really want to try these ASAP 😞 -sigh- fingers crossed.

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

@itsfi Such a great review of those super cute masks! πŸ™‚ And oh my, that brunch looks lovely!

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

Thank you @QueenMarceline! Kocostar does do a good job with their packaging; very eye catching. I usually do a chart for mask comparisons but to me the only things that separated these masks were the featured ingredient and the scent. It’s a little odd and maybe that was just my findings but at the same time makes it easy to pick which mask(s) to repurchase. πŸ› 

 

Food, drink, masks - the essentials of life. πŸ₯°

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

@itsfi  Waffles you say.... guess what I'm gonna need to make for lunch now.  I can guarantee mine won't be as pretty.. but I swear you influence my menu as much as my masking lol!  I have to say that given the similar effects of the masks.... Blueberry scent would totally put it over the top for me too.  Great idea getting some extra masking in on the weekends!

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

@itsfi Okay... so mine weren't quite the same as yours... I have no fruit left in the house and they're from a keto mix lol... but still inspiring!

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

@missjeanie, mmm, waffles! No fruit? It’s all good. What are we going to top β€˜em with? Got any ice cream in the house? πŸ˜†
