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

@itsfi  

The watermelon full sheet mask is a favorite in this house. I didn't know that Sephora had these peels until I saw your post. I like the sound of them being gentle. Will have to look into them more.

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

@missy94612, the new peels are nice - gentle but gets the job done. My skin felt so smooth (and still feels smooth). πŸ˜ is there a particular flavor you're leaning towards? If you pick one of these up, please let us know your thoughts on them (and your husband's too!) 

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

@itsfi 

They all sound great - that's the problem. LOL. We still have some exfoliating masks and peels so we're not in a rush. I have gift card and may pick up one of them to see how we like it and if we do, there's always room in the cart during the sale. Ha!

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

@itsfi  

That watermelon biocellulose is such a joy to use - soothing and refreshing. You're right about it being great after a peel. 

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

@elleb810, it's a good all year round mask; one of my favorites from the Sephora Collection. πŸ‰

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

@itsfi oh that peel caught my eye lol

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

@lmaster, I say, "get it!" πŸ˜  

 

Oh, wait. I think you are on a low / no buy, yes? In that case, I say, "get it during a sale or promo!" πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚  I'm trying to be a helpful and supportive enabler. lol. Which of the peels do you think you'd pick up - the papaya, lemon or orange peel?

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

Well, I literally just bought the PC peel but,,, if it's still available I would want to try the papaya @itsfi maybe by the next sale

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

Her new peel @lmaster
Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 25% AHA + 2% BHA Exfoliant Peel 1 oz/ 30 mL 

 

It looks interesting. I’ve read it’s similar to DE Babyfacial. I received a tube as part of a gwp but was waiting to give it a try. Would love to hear about your take on it after you’ve had time to put it to a good test run. 

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

Yes @itsfi I would absolutely compare it to DE, I've only used it once so far, so I'll keep you posted!

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

Hmmmm adding the peel to my cart now @itsfi.…sounds lovely and easy to use. Maybe as a nice 1-2x a month treatment!

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

@eshoe, it's a nice, gentle one to have in a collection. Is there a particular scent / flavor you're interested in?

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

Well @itsfi I took a peek and went with the SEPHORA COLLECTION AHA Peeling Masks Papaya. I also added the SEPHORA COLLECTION Vitamin Tonic Passionfruit and the SEPHORA COLLECTION Vitamin Tonic Dragonfruit might not be far behind. The mini needs a tonic but has no interest in skincare at the moment. Hoping something light, fun and fruity might appeal to her.

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

@eshoe, good reminder, I have a couple of those toners, or maybe, I just have one?! I think I just have one... Uh oh; not good that I don't know. 

 

Woaahhhh. Wait. 😯 The mini "has no interest in skincare at the moment." That hurts my heart a little. 

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

Oh I am curious what you think of them, @itsfi! If you locate themπŸ˜‚

 

It hurts my heart more than a little. Gentle hints didn’t help, so I recommended she begin a simple three-step routine. That was followed with a quick, β€œI am not interested in skin care.” I am still processing that. It may take me awhile😒 She still has plenty of time to come around!

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

@itsfi  I've been wondering about the SC Peel! Out of the three varieties, the Papaya is the one I was most interested in - so it's great to hear you enjoyed it! I like the sound of it being more gentle πŸ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85, I like that this is gentle on the skin. The most gentle peel in my stash are the First Aid Beauty Radiance Pads. I haven’t pitted them against each other side by side but I think the Sephora Collection papaya mask would give it a good run and may even be more gentle than the FAB Radiance Pads.

 

What peels / chemical exfoliants are in your rotation this winter?

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

@itsfi I totally forgot about the FAB Radiance Pads - I remember really liking those! I'll definitely have to add those to my next order. πŸ˜‰

 

Lately I've had a couple peels/exfoliants in rotation: Summer Fridays Overtime Mask 2.25 oz/ 64 g  which is a top favorite of mine,  and the other is the Purlisse Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant, that I kinda feel just meh about, but am trying to use up. Soon I'll finally be opening up thSEPHORA COLLECTION Instant Masks Grapefruit Peeling that I bought a while ago.

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

@Shosh85, the SF Overtime mask is a good one. I’m conflicted whether I like that one or the PTR pumpkin enzyme mask more. πŸ€” 

 

Oh my goodness, you just reminded me that I have that SC grapefruit peeling mask … somewhere …  Okay, now I need to figure out if I put it with my scrubs or masks. 🧐 Ugh, this always happens when I try a new system for organizing my things. 😝 

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

@itsfi  The SF and the PTR masks are pretty much a tie for me! I really love them both equally. It's like picking between a pumpkin spiced latte and a pumpkin pie πŸ˜„

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

Excellent point @Shosh85! We don't have to choose between pumpkin spice latte and pumpkin pie - they can, and do, co-exist. I feel better about not having to choose between them. Thank you, thank you!!
