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

@missy94612, they have a few different ones - in addition to the ones pictured, there's also a green mask, a purple one and a pink mask in the clay series. I just posted about the yellow one - so far, so good. I feel like my complexion looks more awake but I think I need to use it more regularly to see about its brightening claims. 

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

@itsfi 

The yellow brightening innisfree mask looks good. I like the innisfree Pore Clearing Matte Moisturizer with Volcanic Clusters 1.7 oz/ 50 mL mask and the cleanser for my breakouts but brightening sounds like it would be good.

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

@nuinui933, I'm intrigued by the brightening one as well. Will let you know how it goes. I meant to use it this week but needed to sub in some heavier moisturizing and nourishing masks from some tlc for my skin.

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

@itsfi the sheet mask sounds great! Fall/winter always causes more sensitive skin - glad it worked well for redness reduction for you!

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

Yes, so true @Kim888 - fall/winter can be brutal on my skin. I feel like this year, the dryness has set in well in advance of when it usually does. 

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

Lovely masking photos @itsfi 

 

I have a question,  anything you find that helps with redness of the corners of your nose.  I find lots of things help with my cheeks but nothing works on my nose. I just figure it's how it will be forever πŸ˜…

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

@CynthieLu, thank you.

 

Hmmm, good question. I’m not sure how to get rid of redness there forever. I imagine it will depend at least in some part based on the reason or source of the redness. Mine that night could have been the result of any of the following reason- dinner was too spicy, blowing my nose, the clay mask or removing it, etc. The redness went away and wasn’t present the next morning. To diminish the appearance of redness in that area, I’ve used Dr. Jart+ Mini Cicapairβ„’ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30 0.5 oz/ 15 mL.

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

For the Sample Dive theme :

 

Youth To The People : Hydrate and Glow Dream Mask

 

This mask boasts ingredients like Maqui, Vitamin C, Squalane and Hylaronic Acid

 

This is an over night moisturizing mask

The brand is Cruelty free and Vegan πŸ’›

I got this mask with a sample bag from Sephora early this September and hadn't gotten around to trying it yet,  I have used this type of mask before and they are right up my alley because my skin is on the dryer side and likes extra moisture.

 

Spoiler
The mask is thick and rich and yellow. It has a very faint smell, a bit sweet but not very strong. The scent was gone shortly after I applied it to my face.

It is a thick cream that didn't feel greasy to me.  It absorbed into my face in about 15 minutes,  there was a slight tackyness after,  since i was wearing it to bed I was not concerned about it at all. 
The mask had no tingly feeling or any sensation at all on my skin. 
 
In the morning I woke up and my skin looked plump and hydrated, similar to how it is after Pacificas Wake Up Beautiful sleep mask. Except this mask contains Vitamin C, whereas Pacificas does not. 

My skin looked nice and moisturized, and it carried through the entire day. 
I have one more sample I think I might save for a really cold and dry winter night and see how it helps combat the dry colder weather. My skin needs serious help during those extreme cold snaps. I'd hold off on considering a purchase until I put it to the test again. 

Happy Masking! πŸ¦„

 

 

 

 

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

@CynthieLu this is one of my favorite masks!

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

It's really nice @lmaster I am going to test it out this winter, when the weather here is dry and freezing, I hope it'll help during that time ❄️ 

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

@CynthieLu 

THis is a great mask. A love in our house.

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

I can't wait to see how it performs in the chill and dry of our winter @missy94612 

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

Ahhhh, this is a favorite among many on BIC @CynthieLu! It does wonders for dry skin and with the cooler weather approaching (or having already arrived for some folks), it’ll be be in high demand! 

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

I can see why,  it was very hydrating. @itsfi  I've decided I have it's cheaper sister in another product lol,  they share alot of qualities. I'm very curious to see who holds up better in the extreme temperatures of January and Febuary.

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

Abib Gummy Sheet Mask 

Spoiler
I thought this mask seemed interesting since it claims it strongly sticks to the skin and can be stretched to perfectly fit your face. 

Unfortunately those claims are nonsense. It’s just a normal soft feeling mask that was actually slightly too narrow and a bit short on the chin. It really didn’t feel stretchy at all. I think it was slightly more likely to stick than some masks but there’s plenty of other make that I can get up and do stuff with it on. 

on the other hand, it didn’t have any particular scent and I actually thought it was pretty hydrating. It all absorbed within about 10 minutes. 

so I overall the result was a success but it’s not anything special

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

@Kim888, I thought the β€œgummy” referred to the serum in the mask; how interesting that it applies to the sheet. Your results sound nice; it’s too bad this one wasn’t a standout. That’s probably the case more often with all the masks you’ve used through the years; it gets more challenging for a mask to be considered special.

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

@Kim888 somehow a "gummy" sheet mask doesn't sound very appealing anyway πŸ˜‚

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

Hmmmm it sounds like β€˜gummy’ might not have been an applicable name for this one, @Kim888. It sure sounded good, though! 

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

Do you think you'd try it again @Kim888 ?

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

I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again but if I ended up with another I’d use it @CynthieLu 

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

@Kim888 that's very odd!! Gummy in the name sounds pretty cool, too bad it was nothing special
