@lmaster 

It's so pretty I don't know if I could bring myself to wear it. Awesome that you got really good results from it.

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

@nuinui933 I didn't even know what the sheet looked like until I opened it 😍

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

Such a pretty print on that one! Sounds like it worked out well usage wise too, @lmaster.

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

@quspork oh it was a treat!! Beautiful art and great results 😊

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

Wow sounds like a winner @lmaster and that is so pretty! 

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

@Kim888 the detail is beautiful! 

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

@lmaster, I think I have this mask! It sounds amazing - I’m down with extra hydration. πŸ’¦ And it just looks beautiful. 😍

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

@itsfi oh it was beautiful!!! Just an added perk to an already fabulous mask

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

Rewinding to last week’s summer/fall mask routine (thank you @missy94612!). Keeping the skin exfoliated and soft has been my goalπŸŒžβ›±πŸ•Ά

I did a little dance when I found the Biossance Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask 2.5 oz / 75 mL in a mini size. I had wanted to try this for awhile now, mostly in part due to  raving reviews. Peels and exfoliating masks make me a little nervous, because I never know just how serious the actives will be. Thankfully, this was just about as gentle as it could get. The pale pink creamy mask had tiny granules throughout that provided gentle physical abrasion. As far as chemical exfoliation, I was anticipating some tingling due to the glycolic acid, but it failed to transpire. After leaving it on for about five minutes (recommended time is 3-10), I very carefully rinsed with a Makeup Eraser. My skin felt softened and smooth to the touch, without a trace of redness. It was a winner for me, and this little tube should last awhile with 1x a month use.

The Kaja Balmy Bento Lip Balm + Scrub PiΓ±a Colada is a repeat; I love the gentle pineapple scrub on the bottom. I wish the coconut lip balm had a sweet coconut scent, but that is the only thing I would change about it.

 

The Skin of Queen Soqu Vitamin C+ Aloe Vera Brightening Mask is an oversized-on-the-sides, cushy, stretchy thin-medium weight sheet that is one of the easier ones I have unfolded. It has a scent that seems to try to lean citrus, but it is too faint and too close to β€˜clean’ to stand out. The clear gel serum is lovely, and there is just enough to add extra to my forehead and cheeks before the packet was empty.

 

I removed the mask after about 25 minutes. My skin felt cool, without any sign of tack. I didn’t notice any brightening, but it was enjoyable to wear and checked the sheet mask off my daily to-do list. This is one I will happily use again.

@eshoe 

What great goals. What I'd give for soft and smooth, exfoliated skin all the time. My skin has been so dry that I'm somewhat scared to using any exfoliation other than once per week. 

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

@missy94612 oh no, I promise you I have been there. One thing I changed in my routine that helped and made a notice difference in a couple of weeks was my cleansing routine. I stopped doing my AM cleanse, and went down to one cleanse in the evening instead of two (oil then either a balm, gel, foam, etc.).

 

Since doing this, I have slowly added exfoliation back into my routine, where I  now feel comfortable doing it a couple of times a week, although they are usually weak. No crazy peels more than once a month! 

 

Stress could also be a factor, it was for me. Skin just doesn’t seem to like it much, any more than we do☺️

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

@eshoe  The sheet mask sounds nice! I love using aloe masks in the summertime! β˜€οΈ

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

Yes, they are so refreshing, @Shosh85! This one especially, it was such a comfortable fit☺️

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

@eshoe  Ooooo I like exfoliation and gentle!! I definitely need to try the Biossance! Great masking sesh! 

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

Biossance in general has been good for my skin @ather. I don’t think I have heard much in terms of irritation from others, either. Always good to end a masking session with happy (rather than red, angry 😑) skin πŸ˜‚

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

Thanks for sharing @eshoe ! I don’t remember hearing a lot about that Bioessence mask! 

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

Yes, I haven’t heard much about it either, @Kim888. I sure do miss their Rose Vitamin C mask, though. 

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

@eshoe, soft, smooth skin is always a plus. πŸ‘πŸΌ 

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

Yes, @itsfi, especially in summertime when the heat and humidity can wreck a little havoc. This is a good little β€˜stabilizer’ πŸ˜„ 

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

@eshoe sounds like a marvelous mask!! I love the kaja you gifted me so much 😍

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

@lmaster it is a good one, have you tried it? I found this little tube at TJ Maxx while ago but was too scared to try it for the longest time. Turns out to be much gentler than I anticipated.
