Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

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

@eshoe  Good job using up samples!!! I’ve been trying too and I used the flash one and quite liked it. What did you think?

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

Thank you, @ather! I enjoyed the Amika and loved how soft my hair felt while applying it. It definitely doesn’t condition with the same robustness as the Triple Rx one, but for β€˜flash masking,’ it isn’t bad. I have the Kure and since it works so similarly with my hair, I probably won’t be buying it anytime soon. But it could happen at some point down the road;)

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

@eshoe  My hair is on the dry side so I used conditioner before the flash. Maybe that’s why I liked it. I’m sure I couldn’t replace flash for conditioner. 

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

Oh I wish I had tried that, @ather. Thanks for the tip. Next time!

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

@eshoe, yay for working through a handful of samples. I've heard the Alpha-H treatment is pretty potent. I was interested in trying it out years ago but decided to hold off then after hearing that because my routine at the time already contained a few actives. The scent on ThirstyMud has been described as a tropical vacation in a jar/tube, depending on the packaging and I found that to be very apt. Smells wonderful and does a nice job at hydrating the skin overnight.

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

@itsfi the Alpha-H definitely caused some tingling, almost stinging. It felt right up there with tarte Knockout Texture & Pore Refining Pads 30 Pads (I had the liquid, not the pads, but I do not see it available to tag), so definitely one of the stronger ones I have tried. 

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

@eshoe  Love the photo! Great way to summarize!

You used some great masks here! That ThirstyMud is a top favorite of mine and o really liked that Amika Flash mask too! πŸ˜ƒ

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

I remember how much you love the Thirsty Mud, @Shosh85! It is always fun to get to test out others’ favorites around here ☺️ 

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

@eshoe I also love your review format!! Looks so professional!!

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

Thank you, @lmaster! Life has gotten to the point where detailing things like masking every day are nearly impossible. But I want to be involved, so I am hoping it will help me stay on track here.

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

@eshoe ooh I love the quick review format! I've been curious about the amika mask, good to know you liked it!

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

@Kim888 I am *hoping* it motivates me to post more often! The Amika reminds me of the amika Most Improved The Kure Multi-Task Treatment Hair Repair Set (just the bottle) that was in the Sephoria box 2.

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

Went with the "Sample Dive" theme. 🌢

Eminence Hungarian Herbal Mud Treatment

 

Consistency and color:

Dark brown with a thin, almost watery consistency. Very messy.

 

Scent:

Cinnamon

 

Wear time:

15 minutes.

 

Performance/Results:

There was a warm, tingly feeling the first 4 minutes and after that it dissipated into a light warming sensation. It set up to the point if I touched it it did not transfer to my hands, but still felt comfortable and flexible when I moved my face around.

 

It washed off easy just splashing water on my face. My cheeks were a bit pink, but to be fair, the packaging clearly warns you that there will be some tingling and possible temporary redness.

My skin felt clean and refreshed, and super soft and smooth. My face did feel a little dry, but not overly so.

 

Repurchase?

Probably not. This was a fun one to try out but I wouldn't say it was anything amazing. I'd use it again though.

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

Ok you just reminded me about these!! 🀦🀦 @Shosh85 now I have to locate the ones I have

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

@lmaster  Haha! Yup, I had totally forgotten about mine too! 

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

@Shosh85 I actually ordered a couple more last night πŸ˜† 

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

This sounds like a rather exciting mask, @Shosh85 πŸ˜‚

 

During an Alpyn Beauty Masterclass, the owner talked about redness that happens immediately after using a mask with enzymes (not sure if the one you used has them or not). She said that your skin will redden due to the increased blood flow from the enzymes. I always thought reddened skin = allergic reaction. At any rate, I would be hesitant to run out and buy a FS jar, too!

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

@eshoe  If the package hadn't warned me there may be possible tingling, I might've washed this off after the first couple minutes! It was almost too intense for me. It worries me more when I get that much tingling and nothing on the package mentions that could happen.
I definitely felt increased blood flow with this one!

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

Wow that is…intense, @Shosh85 πŸ˜³

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

@Shosh85 interesting! I haven't seen this one! Messy doesn't sound fun but the scent sounds yummy 

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

@Kim888  The messiness of it wasn't a big deal, just wasn't expecting that consistency from a mud mask. The cinnamon scent was definitely a nice bonus!
