Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh perfect, @ShortErica 🌈!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Love this watermelon comparison, @ShortErica! I don't think I've seen the Masqueology one but it sounds like it turned out well!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes, I'd love a truer watermelon scent but otherwise it checks the boxes for me @quspork 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Now I'm super curious about the masqueology watermelon! @ShortErica love your battle!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Do you have a watermelon favorite @lmaster? I remember trying Glow Recipe in the past but there's probably lots of watermelon masks to try.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Purlisse has a great one too @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  I am loving this watermelon mash up!! They all had super cute packaging too. I may have one or two of these in my stash so I might have to dig them out and use them to compare!!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Sometimes dedicating a bit of time for a comparison is so worth it. I definitely recommend it @ather. Even with notes about the masks, it's hard to figure out which is the winner. Watermelon is so perfect for this weather and I can't wait to see what you think of them!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  I love watermelon!! I even have one of the Sephora watermelon masks!! The weather where I live is leaning towards fall already. It’s cold out. But I can’t complain we had a great summer!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  Oooh, love a watermelon duel! 🍉 I had no idea I'd given you so many watermelon masks, but it makes sense because I love watermelon and these are some of my favorites! 

It is super annoying how some masks have their star ingredient(s) so far down in the list - it does seem that all of BioBelle's new masks are like that.
Glad they all turned out great!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I was like, hey it's @Shosh85, and Shosh and Shosh again - thank you again! Yes, bioBelle seemed like it was effective despite having those ingredients at the bottom but yeah, a bit disappointing. The other thing I loved was that each of these masks had good size philtrum areas - nothing skimpy!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This week’s 3-step mask from Missha, thanks to the recent motm 📦

Spoiler
My skin has been so disagreeable this week. I’ve had a few blemishes along my jawbone and dots haven’t been helping, so I was hoping some exfoliating would help. This was the second (or third?) time I’ve tried the Youth To The People Yerba Mate Resurfacing + Exfoliating Energy Facial with Enzymes, and I still don’t have any strong feelings about it one way or another. Lots of tiny granules, so I was extra careful when rinsing off.

This Missha 3-Step Nutrition Mask starts with Essence, which I’ve come to appreciate more as I’ve made it part of my skincare routine. It seemed superfluous at first, but that’s how I felt about serum a few years ago, too🤷🏻‍♀️ I think as a first step, it’s a great choice. This essence felt more like a rich serum, with a clean laundry-type scent. Step two, the mask, was a thicker, soft and stretchy fabric that felt lovely but fell away from my face to the point that I removed it after about 15 minutes of struggling. My skin felt quite soft and hydrated. Since step three was the hydrating cream, I went through my final steps and then applied it last. It was pleasant enough, no irritation so that was a plus. It’s not a mask I would repurchase, but I loved having the opportunity to try it, so a very big thank you and hug to the person who included it in the box, it was greatly appreciated!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe that's what I love about motm, getting to try new ones out 😊

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Me too, @lmaster. It’s all about the adventure, doesn’t matter if they are good or bad☺️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Too bad you don’t have thoughts on the YTTP I’ve been debating it for a bit. I might have to see if I have a sample. I totally agree with you about serums. A few years ago I didn’t use them but now I can’t get enough!!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@atherI guess as much as I love physical exfoliatants, I realize they are not a good match for my normal/dry skin. I love them, but tend to overuse them as a result. The granules in this one are small, but noticeably rough. If your skin can handle it, this might be a brilliant fit for you. It’s fun to use and I love the brand overall; the Youth To The People Superfood Air-Whip Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid is my all-time favorite daytime moisturizer.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  In the summer I might be able to get away with a physical exfoliate but in the winter I think I am to dry!! I will definitely check that moisturizer out!! Thank you!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I love that MOtM allows us to try something we might not want to purchase ourselves. This sounds nice @eshoe. Hope your face calms down. I've been having some blemish issues too. Ugh!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes @ShortErica I’ve had fun trying new masks. They haven’t always panned out, but isn’t that how it works, at least in part? It’s the most fun trying them, if they aren’t a god fit, then I just know what I don’t like/need 🙂

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  All three steps on this one sound pretty decent! I'm happy MOTM gave you a chance to try it out! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

They were good, @Shosh85! I’ve been using the Missha Time Revolution and along with the CosRx, they have helped me see what a difference an essence can make in plumping the skin. 3 step masks used to seem like a lot of work, but I kinda don’t mind them anymore🤷🏻‍♀️
