Very much so @eshoe !  I'm thinking if I keep it up I'll have anything older than 2021 done in the next month. I'm not super worried about expiry dates but I'd like to make sure they're getting used a bit more timely than years out of date lol

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

 Not much regular routine for me lately, this year sure started off a bit hectic, as we had to make a bunch of adjustments at work for winter events due to Omicron. Anyway, I have a three day weekend for MLK, so that’s nice, though I still have some work I’ll need to do. Often, I do a mask on Saturday mornings but yesterday started fast, haha.

Anyway, just relaxing and doing chores today. Decided to do some masking while the house was quiet. 

1st, the second half of this sample alpyn beauty Wild Huckleberry 8-Acid Polishing Peel Mask . Goes on nicely, felt a bit of tingling after about 5 minutes. Has very gentle beads that I massaged in while rinsing. Had a bit of redness in a line where the mask stopped so I think anyone with very sensitive skin would want to use caution. Skin felt smooth but a bit tight after rinsing and drying.

I decided to add a sheet mask, the Lapcos Aqua. This is from my 7 variety pack. This has that same gel consistency, plenty of serum and the mask fit really great, nice and smooth. Stayed on for at least 20-25 minutes while I cleaned the bathroom and made breakfast. Left a tacky feel but took away any redness from the alpyn peel mask and felt nice and hydrated.

 

I didn’t realize this Wander beauty lip oil Wander Beauty Lip Retreat Oil is tinted, kind of a brownish tan nude, but it feels and looks pretty nice

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

@sister13  The Lapcos mask is a nice one! Glad it turned out great for you! Have you tried any others from that set yet? I really loved the Honey one πŸ˜‰ They have two new sets now, and I'm especially interested in the Cica, Escargot, Ceramide and Propolis masks. πŸ˜ƒ

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

Good time to use a hydrating mask!! @sister13 

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

My thoughts exactly! @lmaster 

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

@sister13, thank you for the note about being cautious with the alpyn peel mask - my sensitive skin is making a mental note! 😊 I've only used the honey version of the Lapcos mask (I found one I like and have been sticking with it) but am intrigued by a few others from the brand, including this Aqua one now - tack from a sheet mask isn't a dealbreaker for me and I really like the sound of the Lapcos Aqua taking away redness. 

 

I hope the rest of the long weekend is productive and restful for you! 

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

Yes, my skin is not usually sensitive, so I was a little surprised to see those red lines from the peel under my eyes. I can’t remember if I mentioned, the Lapcos Aqua didn’t have much scent, if any at all. It was a great fitting mask and my skin today feels nice and hydrated, though I am also trialing a new moisturizer as of last night. @itsfi 

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

That Alpyn Beauty mask is a great little 5-minute skin softener @sister13 - but yes, a timer is vital with this one! It is potent. Just a note, the granules are spherical, so they are supposed to be more gentle in the skin than other physical exfoliants. 

That Lapcos set is a nice one, I agree. Good to have a few of those on hand!

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

Yes, it’s funny, I do don’t t remember having a sensitive reaction the first time I used the sample, but could be any number of things, I suppose, that made it more sensitive this time. I read the product page and reviews after I used it, so I saw that it’s bamboo spheres and multiple acids. I would consider buying this if I didn’t already have too many masks in my stash! @eshoe 

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

@sister13 I found the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial Mask 2.03 oz/ 60 mL to be remarkably similar to the Alpyn mask. Just another option for when you aren’t swimming in masksπŸ˜‚

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

@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.
