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

@itsfi  I think I remember liking the blueberry one the most..... my son doesn’t have a favorite- he just likes to stare at all the colors together πŸ˜‰

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

@Shosh85 - grape soda mask looks and sounds refreshing. That's such a bummer that the brand isn't making the sheet mask anymore. Sounds like one to stock up on now.

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

@eshores It always seems to be my most favorites that get discontinued! There are two lines of masks from this brand that I love almost every single one of πŸ˜₯ 

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

@Shosh85 @Yum grape soda sounds good! Sad when a good brand stops making masks !!!

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

@Kim888 It’s SO sad! This is my most favorite brand of masks! -  It’s always the masks we love that get discontinued  πŸ˜’

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

Wow, the third time with the A by Bom mask, @Shosh85 - that sounds like a possible favorite! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

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

@eshoe  Yup! Definitely had to squeeze it in for favorites week! 🍯🐝

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

Favorite mask of all time has to go to the Eminence Snow Mushroom & Reishi Masque. Eminence is an organic skincare line from Hungary, I usually buy their products at my local salon/spa but they are also available online at retailers such as Amazon. This mask targets anti-aging and goes for $70-80 so it is quite pricey for your typical mask. However, a little goes a long way, it lasts a long time and its absolutely divine on the skin. No mess, no smell (completely unscented) and no fuss. It's almost a thick cream-like texture and you mix it with a few drops of water to get the "masque" effect. Most masks are quite messy but this one is not due to it's color and consistency. Having this on your skin almost makes it feel like your face is being hugged by a cloud. When it goes on it's almost completely clear, so it does not even appear as if you are wearing a mask. I always keep this mask on for ridiculous amounts of time because of how gentle it is and how nourishing it is, which is something you usually cannot get away with while using other anti-aging masks. The effects are also great, my skin always feels so soft and regenerated. This is a great mask that I reach for all the time and I love that I can use this anti-aging mask even on the days where my target skincare routine is somewhere else (such as combating acne). For example, I recently used a new product that caused a severe and painful breakout and after many days of salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide treatments I reached for this mask because of how gentle it is on the skin. It really calmed down some of the pain and redness in my face from the breakout and it almost had an "aloe vera on sunburn" effect. I love this mask for that reason, it's the star of my beauty regime and I think it is worth every penny-definitely will continue to purchase this for years to come.

@QueenMarceline So glad you have a mask you love so much! 

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

@QueenMarceline  Thanks for the great review- this one sounds wonderful! I bought a bunch of samples from the brand and am slowly working my way through them, but so far I’ve liked what I’ve tried! Will have to remember this one 😒

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

@Shosh85 OOOH, what's your favorite product you have tried from them from your samples so far? I'm super curious.

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

@QueenMarceline  I've only tried 3 so far - the Blueberry Soy Night Recovery Cream, Sour Cherry Masque and the Hungarian Herbal Mud Treatment. I loved the Night Cream and am definitely considering purchasing the full size. I liked the other two, but wouldn't say I loved them.

 

This is what I have left to try:

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

@Shosh85 I've honestly been eyeing that blueberry soy cream, it's usually on my recommended page on Amazon. That chocolate masque looks super interesting too. This brand definitely get an A+ from my on creativity and scent. I want to try everything πŸ˜‚ 

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

@QueenMarceline  I totally agree - A+ for scent! All three of the ones I've tried so far have smelled great! πŸ‘ƒπŸ˜‹

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

Thank you for the very detailed feedback on this mask, @QueenMarceline. I have yet to try a mask from that brand, although I have tried a couple of their other products. It sounds quite soothing!

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

@eshoe You should definitely grab a (hopefully free-I know they charge $2 for samples of Eminence at my salon πŸ‘€) sample of it. Revisiting this thread makes me want to put it on haha!

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

That is quite reasonable, @QueenMarceline - thank you for the tip!

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

Sounds very soothing @QueenMarceline 

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

@lmaster Honestly, the best of the best. I had a hard time picking my "all time favorite" because I love so many masks, but it had to go to this guy. It was a no brainer once I narrowed down my top faves.

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

@QueenMarceline, I am a fan of Eminence products πŸ₯° and this one caught my eye. Mushroom πŸ„ in skincare products have worked very well for me. I have a few Eminence products to work my way through but am making note of your feedback on this one. 

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

@itsfi Can't say enough good things about it, seriously. I've already turned my mom and sister onto this product and at least 3 friends. If you ever get a chance, try it out. Especially if mushroom works great in your skincare :).
