Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@ather  This one sounds so nice! Glad to hear it turned out great for you! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85  My skin really enjoyed it! Thanks!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Last night I tried The INKEY List Kaolin Mask 1.7 oz/ 50 mL .  I was interested in it because my usual HG clay mask, Versed Find Clarity Purifying Mask, has been harder to get my hands on.  (Target no longer sells it in-store, and Dermstore no longer offers free shipping with any order but instead has a $35 minimum.)  I enjoy clay masks because they absorb oil and make my pores appear to shrink.

 

I was surprised that this was a white clay mask.  At first I didn't care, but then I realized that it was a little hard to tell when it dried down.  I applied a thin layer because that's what the directions said to do, but also because I didn't think it spread that well and was hard to build.  As the mask dried, the drier areas turned kind of transparent.  The thicker layers didn't dry that well and I got impatient after about 12 minutes or so.

 

As it dried down, I didn't get that dry/cracked feeling that ones does with clay masks.  That WAS nice.  This also rinsed off easily.

 

I truthfully wasn't that impressed last night, but today I noticed that my pores did seem more clear.  So yes, I will use this again!  (However, it didn't stop me from buying another two of the Versed mask today because I'm a beauty hoarder.)

 

One thing I really appreciate about this mask was the price.  I feel like it's OK to not love it, because it's so inexpensive.  I own three other items from The Inkey List, and I really think it's been a solid brand.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@greeneyedgirl107  I really like how you said that this one doesn't dry down fully yet isn't difficult to remove - that sounds like a great combo! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

So glad you reviewed this one @greeneyedgirl107 I've been curious about this one for awhile

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster Happy to help out ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@greeneyedgirl107  This one sounds pretty good, but I'm sorry to hear the Versed mask is harder to get a hold of! Does the Versed mask dry down super hard?

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85 The Versed mask definitely dries down, but I wouldn't say it dries down super hard or  uncomfortably so.  Whenever I've felt that uncomfortable too tight/extra dry feeling, it's always been b/c I left it on for too long.  You know, like when you can't wait the 10-15 minutes so you go on BIC and time flies!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@greeneyedgirl107  Oh, yes time certainly flies when your on the BIC! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Thanks for the info! Both of these clay masks sound like they're worth trying out! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Thanks for the review on this one, @greeneyedgirl107. I've been curious to hear more about it. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

My skin very much appreciates clay masks that do not dry down @greeneyedgirl107. I've used TIL kaolin mask before and enjoyed it; may have to check out Versed's version of it - well, first I'll check to see if I already have it. lol. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I didn't know that there were clay masks that didn't dry down.  You've broadened my horizons.  What other clay masks do you like?

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@greeneyedgirl107, innisfree Pore Clearing Clay Mask 3.38 oz/ 100 mL and Kiehl's Since 1851 Rare Earth Deep Pore Minimizing Cleansing Clay Mask have been good; they both contain kaolin and bentonite clays so Iโ€™ve been surprised that they are not drying on my skin. I typically only use clay masks on my T-zone and usually remove a little earlier than the recommended wear time.

 

Not clay masks but some charcoal and mud masks I really like for decongesting the pores  are Origins Clear Improvementโ„ข Charcoal Honey Mask to Purify and Nourish 2.5 oz/ 75 mL and Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask 5 oz/ 150 mL. I would say I like these two more than the clay masks. The Origins I used a couple times per week along my jawline when maskne first started its assault on my jawline. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi Those all look like interesting options!  I've esp been meaning to try the innisfree, but now you have me wanting the PTR and Kiehl's.  I haven't heard of the Origins Charcoal Honey Mask, but have heard of the Origins Mini Clear Improvementโ„ข Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pore 1 oz/ 30 mL .  I keep meaning to try that one, too!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

G for Goodal- in particular the Goodal Blueberry Infused Water Mask

I've used a few of the older, discontinued Goodal masks in the past and was pretty pleased with them so when @lmaster started saying some good things about the newer versions, I knew I needed to pick a couple up. This was a thin cotton sheet that gave me an excellent fit and great adherence. I didn't pick up much of a scent outside of general freshness, but maybe there was the slightest hint of a fruity scent? Or maybe I was wishing it into existence, ha! The sheet itself was well saturated and I was able to wear it for a good 20 minutes. After removal there was just a little bit of tack that faded fairly quickly. My skin felt refreshed and hydrated, and I did notice there was a little less redness in my cheeks than before the mask. All in all, I was pretty pleased with this one and wouldn't hesitate to re-purchase. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@quspork  Oooh - this looks really nice. Goodal is a brand I need to explore some more.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

They've had some great products over the years, @PrettyPaint. I really want to try their tangerine line at some point. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@quspork Ooh I'm adding this to my wishlist! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

It's definitely a good line to check out, @Samtian

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@quspork  This one sounds pretty great - I'm happy you enjoyed it! Definitely makes me excited to try out the line! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿซ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I hope you enjoy it whenever you give it a whirl, @Shosh85!
