@erikarosenim, this sounds like a good resurfacing treatment.

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

@erikarosenim @Only needing it once a week doesn’t sound like a con to me!  Unless you love the masking process and accidentally overdo it.  Putting this one on my list , though I’m technically not supposed to buy more exfoliators til I have two empties in that category.  

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

@erikarosenim 

This one sounds powerful but really good.

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

@erikarosenim @This one is really nice ! Glad you found something that works well for you!

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

So I tried creating my own extraordinary exfoliator. I used Foreo Imagination DIY Mask Base. I receieved this as a GWP from Shoppers Drug Mart.

I read that rolled outs can be used in a home made mask. After applying I noticed that the bits of oats were falling off my face! I ended up sitting for 15 min and just relaxing while the mask did its thing. The base was nice and nourishing on my skin and did not irritate it. The oats did not really seem like a good exfoliator, except for maybe when I wiped the mask off. Anyways this was an interesting experience!

@Mellmars1185 Have you tried a coffee grinder for the oatmeal?  I used to try to DIY a lot more and found that once it was pulsed to a powder it was quite lovely. 

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

@missjeanie No I have not but great idea! I have one hqndy in my kitchen!

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

@Mellmars1185  Sounds fun! I always enjoy hearing about others DIY masking experiences! Glad it turned out nice! πŸ˜ƒ

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

Kudos to you for trying, @Mellmars1185! You never know when you might stumble upon something fantastic unless you try, right?!

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

How cool!! @Mellmars1185 thanks for sharing, looks so fun

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

This sounds like a fun little DIY mask, @Mellmars1185!

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

@Mellmars1185, I didn’t realize Foreo had this product; sounds promising. I love @heartsmyface’s suggestion for grinding the oatmeal first. 

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

@Mellmars1185 @If you mix the oats in a food processor you get a much better paste when you add the honey and water;) 

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

@heartsmyface Great suggestion! I just got one too!

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

I dug the Elemis Thousand Flowers Peptide Mask out of my sample skincare stash to try out and I have to say that I was less than impressed.  Is this supposed to do something?  First of all, the packaging looks so pretty--I love the purple ombre--so I was kind of expecting a light pastel purple-colored mask.  Uhhh, no.  It's black.  And it feels like toothpaste that never dries.  I left it on for the suggested 10-15 minutes before washing it off and it felt like a wasted 10-15 minutes πŸ˜‚.

@CookieGirl1 Oh my gosh... toothpaste??? Reminds me of being a teenager when we'd hear that toothpaste would zap zits. lol

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

@CookieGirl1  I think I would of expected a nice purple mask too! Sorry to hear this was unimpressive 😐

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

@Shosh85 Obviously some people like it; it just wasn't for me.

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

@CookieGirl1 I think you and I are at polar opposite ends of the skincare spectrum! I am sorry to hear this one was a bust for you. I tried this one and loved it, I recall the scent and unusual texture being the primary reasons why. Results? I did not notice any, major ones either, I have to agree. It’s so interesting and helpful to hear what you think  (just like the KS Wrinkle Warrior), I guess if you aren’t a fan I will probably love it, ha haπŸ˜„

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

@eshoe there's definitely something for everybody out there!  I'm glad that you liked it πŸ™‚

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

Black toothpaste?? @CookieGirl1 good for you for trying it out πŸ˜†
