Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I think you sent me the Green Tea one @Shosh85 that I still need to try. I hope you get to try the Chamomile to compare! I feel like I can do a slight lavender mask as a pre-bedtime treat but it's got to be for a specific occasion.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica I'll definitely be curious to try the camomile one - I hope you like the Green Tea!

I think I'm just weird about floral scents in general. Lavender is one of those scents that is almost always too strong for me - and instead of making me sleepy, it gives me a headache. Why can't my nose just be normal! 👃😢

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

💗 your comparison, @Shosh85! I am so grateful you introduced me to this line. I have some dried hibiscus leaves as well as that mask (from you as well) so I will pair the two and see how different they are. I am so excited to try it, since you rated that one the best in terms of scent:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Oh nice, that sounds like a fun comparison - I'll be interested to hear what you find out! Hope you enjoy it! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I will, @Shosh85. It falls into the ‘it’s so pretty I don’t want to use it’ category:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Me too @eshoe! It's so unique compared to the others in my basket. I feel like I need to save it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yeah it’s tough working through that category, @ShortErica ☺️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This is a nice comparison, @Shosh85. Lavender is definitely one of those scents that can be nice in small doses but easily becomes overwhelming when it's too strong. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork  Exactly - small doses is key. I feel like it's generally such a strong scent with most products.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85  I love that you always want to try everything. I think that’s such a good idea!!! I always love reading your thoughts! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather  It is super fun to be able to try a whole line of masks and compare them with each other. Though, I have to say, @ShortErica is the "gotta catch 'em all" queen! 👑😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hahaha @Shosh85, it always feels like a mission. I'm lucky to have so many sweet BIC friends that share with me. But yeah, wanting all of the varieties of a mask made me go on a no buy so unfortunately catching em all does have consequences. Only 4 months left though!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica No more Holika Holika 10-packs for you! 😜😂 Are you strictly on a mask no-buy, or just skincare in general? 4 months seems like a long time, but it goes by quick! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Only the aloe Holika Holika but considering I bought 2 10-packs last year, not even those @Shosh85. Mask only no buy. I think I can get my inventory down to 100 which will be good since I feel wash off masks are forgotten in the sheet mask madness. Hopefully I'll be able to get a balance.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Love the comparison @Shosh85! ♥️ These masks are nice; I think lavender in masks is a hard one because the potency of the fragrance can be too much.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  These really are nice masks and such a unique concept! 

I can rarely ever do lavender scents because it's usually so potent, but the great results on this one sorta evened it out 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

A 3 step gifted my the ever so thoughtful @eshoe 


Step 1 is a peeling gel, I liked this one better than the boscia version, it did leave my skin feeling softer. Step 2 is a thin white sheet, the scent was light and hardly noticeable and highly saturated with clear serum. Fit was pretty good, and I have started to perform surgery now and I'm kinda kicking myself for being too lazy in the past because it does really help!! After I removed the mask, my skin felt nicely hydrated! Step 3 is a balancing gel, this is a step im not familiar with, I have never used a balancing gel before. I noticed after applying it, my skin turned pretty matte. I think that is pretty beneficial for someone who has oily skin in the summer and wants to wear makeup. Overall I enjoyed this 3 step mask and would repurchase if I came across it, thanks again lovely!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

So happy to hear this one worked out for you, @lmaster! I really enjoyed it, too:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe it's a winner absolutely!! Thank you 🤗

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

With the balancing gel step, it sounds like this might make a good morning mask (for someone not too rushed in the a.m.), @lmaster.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork I was very happy with all the steps in this mask, definitely a great morning mask 👍
