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

@missjeanie that is so interesting that you don’t notice a peach scent anymore in that mask; only fragrance. Combined with the unhappy skin, makes me think hormones, tooπŸ€” I hope everything resolved quickly! 

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

@eshoe I swear it was peachy at first... but now... straight up random floral fragrance.  I even did a rapid test wondering if my sense of smell was off.  Nope... just getting over that mask I guess.  

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

Well at least you know you are healthy, @missjeanie πŸ˜‚

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

@missjeanie  I feel like most Tony Moly masks are just "run of the mill" - I don't remember ever hating any of them, but I know I also haven't loved any of them either. 
That Yadah mask is good, solid and dependable! I think it may have been the first snail mask I ever tried and will always hold a special place in my heart. 😊🐌

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

Big yes on all the Tony Moly @Shosh85 .  I do think they've got some great marketing that makes me want to try them all... but they're all pretty basic filler masks for me at this point.  Unless I hear a grand review of one or get a steal of a deal, then I'll pick one up lol. I can always be swayed. 

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

@missjeanie, you're masking, treating your skin with what it needs (hello winter, please stop sucking my skin dry!!! πŸ˜«), and working through your stash - that's awesome! 

 

Love β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ the sample made you buy it tie-in! πŸŒ I remember finding those Yadah snail masks in TJ Maxx / Marshalls and going crazy! I picked up 5 boxes. FIVE!!! Yeah, it was then that I realized I had a problem with sheet masks. Yes, only then. πŸ˜‚ I will not  be doing that ever again! But, you gotta love an E for escargot mask! πŸ˜‰ You also have an A for anti-aging ingredients theme going with all the masks here! Just sayin'! 

 

It'll be interesting to see which masks are ones you'd repurchase after you make your way through your mask stash, and if there's another snail mask that you pick up before this one. I'll stay tuned to find out. πŸ˜Š

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

@itsfi I know there are a few more snails in there to be had over the year!  I'm curious to try and find my favourite masks in several areas, hydrating, glowing/brightening, snail, clearing and full on save me my face is flaking off.  Snail is the only (at least so far) ingredient that I know I love and want to find my favourite of. 

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

That will be a lot of fun @missjeanie! I'm interested in seeing what your picks will be for those mask categories at the end of the year!

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

I totally feel you on using up some older masks. Definitely the perfect time for that, @missjeanie

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

@quspork I think from my little frolic through my collection last week I'll be on the older mask train for the next month or so lol I proooooobably should have checked some dates before now lol

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

@missjeanie Same! I went through my mask stash this week to re-organize (by date) and have a handful of masks that probably should have been used before the end of 2021 so those are moved up to the front on the pack. 

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

@missjeanie you make me laugh!! I swear you never liked that lip mask πŸ˜† I didn't mind it, I kinda liked the pink shade, you have reminded me to see what condition mine is in

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

@lmaster @missjeanie, I tried so hard to make that lip mask work for me as it was intended - on my lips! But it was just not meant to be; I ended up repurposing it, but it was fun to have received it to try. πŸ˜

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

@itsfi repurpose?? Do tell πŸ™

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

lol @lmaster! I rotated it as a β€œmask” for my elbows, my heels, sometimes even all over the soles of my feet. One time, I made a whole pedicure / foot care routine with it - soles of feet, rinse off and then do a foot soak, then moisturized my feet and put on a pair of socks, though you could substitute a foot mask like SEPHORA COLLECTION Clean Foot Mask for that last step. I don’t know if it performed any miracles but I did finish the jar and well, that felt like a miracle at the time. πŸ˜‚ It was a never ending jar!! @missjeanie 

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

@itsfi wow!! Great idea,,I would of never thought to repurpose it in that way!! 

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

@lmaster, I was having a heck of a time trying to work through it so I just started finding body parts to try it out on. πŸ˜‚ In hindsight, I should have just called it quits and de-stashed it. Lesson learned.

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

Lol I love the idea of a mask just for your elbows @itsfi !  I do feel like if I end up finishing it it will be a miracle!

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

@missjeanie- can't neglect our elbows! πŸ˜‚ 

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

@lmaster I really never did! lol... I think the shade and the fun looks I gave myself in the mirror were my favourite part!  That and that a brand wanted little ol' me to try their product.  I actually had such hate for it in my mind, but it really wasn't as bad as I remembered. 

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

Take two! Note to self: always, always, always type up a post in Notes.

 

Going with C for Camellia and Citrus.

Tonight I used the Chanel Hydra Beauty Camellia Repair Mask. This is the second time I have tried this, with some tweaks based on my first experience.

 

The scent of Chanel skincare is something I have enjoyed in the past, so I fully expected it in the mask. It would be safe to say this is highly fragranced. On my first use, I applied a thin layer to my entire face. The scent became nearly overwhelming. I would almost dare to say that it was too much of a good thing. The next time, I applied it only to my cheeks, the one area of my face that tends to be dry.

 

The texture of this mask is where it excels. It is a thick, matte, almost waxy cream that seems to almost disappear on the skin. If not for the scent, I would likely forget I am wearing it, and head off to sleep. Suggested wear time is 10 minutes, but I left it on around 20 each time. By that time, the mask was invisible to my eyes, although I could still catch the scent and feel it on my skin. Removing it was easier than I anticipated. Splashing with water and using my hands to rinse off was all that was needed.

Results were as expected. My skin felt soft and supple. The thing is, there are a plethora of hydrating/repairing masks that perform just as well, without the heavy-hitting fragrance. I suspected that might be the case going in, and I might need to work around it. Using it as a β€˜spot’ or β€˜patch’ treatment for dry areas, while detoxing the ready of my face with a clay mask, seemed to do the trick. I doubt I would reach for this as a repairing mask, but rather as a special occasion mask for times when I need a little mood boost.

Ingredients:

Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Glycol Stearate Se, Jojoba Esters, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Camellia Oleifera Seed Oil, Dimethicone, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Methylpropanediol, Polyglycerin-3, Panthenol, C10-18 Triglycerides, Isostearyl Isostearate, Sodium Polyacrylate, Camellia Japonica Flower Extract, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Phytosteryl/Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Parfum (Fragrance), Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Chlorphenesin, Caprylyl Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Acacia Decurrens Flower Wax, Helianthus Annuus Cera Seed (Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Wax), Dipropylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenylpropanol, Phytic Acid, Sodium Citrate, Tocopherol, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, IL40A.

The Lohas no:hj Milky Glow Shining Mask is a dry winter skin’s dream: soft, cozy sheet drenched in a generous amount of opaque white serum. It fit beautifully, remained in place for close to 30 minutes, and left my skin amply hydrated with minimal tackiness. This might be my favorite of those I have tried from this brand! Oddly enough, this mask has a boatload of citrus and other fruit extracts. Although it did not irritate my skin, it is something to note for those who are prone to sensitivities.

I have been using the Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Cream 0.5 oz/ 15 mL for a couple of months now, 3-4 times a week. I like the way it feels, and seems to fill in the skin around my eyes. I have not experienced any dry or irritated skin, which is another bonus considering it has retinol. I would consider repurchasing this at some point. The Tatcha The Kissu Lip Mask Original is an old favorite πŸ’—
