Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork Dewytree makes some nice masks, and it sounds like this was no exception! Glad you enjoyed it! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

They do have some nice ones, @Shosh85. I have the birch from this line to try too- so excited to see how it works out. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This mask sounds wonderful @quspork! 🀩 I’ve been impressed with Dewytree sheet masks. Making a note about this one ... for when my mask count is less than triple digits. πŸ˜‰πŸ€ͺ


You are very much on theme! V is for vitamin C. Quince is a good source of vitamin C! ☺️

Ha- true, Vitamins always sneak in there , @itsfi!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I multimask almost everyday, so just thought I'd share my normal Wednesday routine.


I start with an intense exfoliation or peel. Right now I'm using Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask 5 oz/ 148 mL right now. 

Whenever I sniff this in the jar, I'm like, "Yay, pumpkin pie." But when its on the face its a little too sickeningly sweet. It easily applies, especially with a brush.
I like that it isn't as intense as other sort of peel masks, I can leave on closer to the 7 min max recommended wear time. It only stings a little bit when I put it on (and usually only around the nostrils) and this goes away quickly.
It definitely helps smooth my skin, but isn't my favorite of these types of masks. Would use again if I got in a set though.

I follow up with a hydrating mask. I'm close to empty on the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask 5 oz/ 150 mL 

I am SO glad to be close to empty on this. It is not a good mask, IMO. First of all, it stings too (especially around the nostrils). It is almost greasy. It does hydrate a bit, but not as much as I'd like. One more use and it is done!

After the rest of my skincare routine, I end the night with a sleeping mask and lip mask. Right now I'm using the Origins Mini Drink Upβ„’ Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask with Avocado & Swiss Glacier Water 1 oz/ 3... and the old formula bite beauty lip mask.

This is one of my favourite sleeping masks. It smells so lovely and tropical. I like how it is creamy but liteweight, so on my normal to dry skin, it sinks in a little but isn't too greasy. Its great for the warmer months but isn't quite enough for the winter.

We all know the old school agave lip mask is amazing. I haven't had a chance to get the reformulation.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv I love that ptr detox mask πŸ’—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I can see why its a lot of people's fave, @lmaster!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv  Looks like a nice routine! πŸ‘ The Origins and PTR Pumpkin masks are a couple of my favorites! The Origins wasn't quite enough for me during the colder months either, which is why I use the Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask with Vitamin C 2 oz/ 59 mL more in the winter.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you, @Shosh85!! I'm more of a Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask 2.25 oz/ 64 g gal myself in the winter. I tried a DS of the YTTP and wanted it to do more for my skin, unfortunately. I do have another DS, so I'll give it one more try in the next months.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv  The pumpkin PTR is too sweet smelling for me too.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Right?! I wish just a bit less scent, and it would ideal smelling. @emaisgr8 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oooh, the PTR pumpkin mask is a fave of mine πŸ₯° and I so agree @haleyvvvv, that Origins mask is a sensory delight! β™₯️


You’re a trooper for working your way through that PTR cucumber mask. πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ I know it’s well liked by some. I could never get it to work for me as a face mask, and have usually passed it along or found ways to repurpose it. Kudos to you for being close to finish it up. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ πŸŽ‰ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Lol, one more week and its done. I just can't not use products, it feels wasteful. Especially when it isnt causing any negative side effects. I wish I had thought to repurpose it.  @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

One more weejk @haleyvvvv? Yay!! For face masks that don’t irritate my skin but just don’t do anything for me as a face mask, I may set them aside for use during a different time of the year since my skin has different needs during the cooler and warmer months. If that doesn’t work or I’m just not up for holding onto the product for that long, I will try to repurpose them a few ways - 


* exfoliating wash off masks - either on my elbows or soles of feet. Or, sometimes, I may set them aside until winter time. There are a few times when it’s cold out that I will have some dryness along my hairline and I’ll use it there to slough away any dry patches.


* non-exfoliating wash off masks - I’ll slather some on the soles of my feet and pop on some socks for a foot mask of sorts. Same goes for the hands. If I can find my gloves for it, a sock works too but it limits what I can do.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Great ideas, thank you, @itsfi!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

You're using some masks that I love @haleyvvvv !  The PTR Pumpkin is one I really enjoy, I must have tough skin though, I tend to leave mine on for at least 15 minutes before enjoying the scrub action.  I do have the PTR Cucmber, but found it to be just meh, nothing bad, but nothing great either.  And the Origins Avocado and Swiss glacier water one reminds me of powdered iced tea every time I put it on.  It's my favourite product from Origins! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I love the Origins mask, it is definitely one of my favorite of theirs, glad to see others enjoy it. I want to try the Origins Drink Upβ„’ 10 Minute Hydrating Mask with Apricot & Swiss Glacier Water 2.5 oz/ 75 mL after my exfoliator but I have SO many masks. @missjeanie 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I hear you on so many masks @haleyvvvv ! I’ve had that one on my list to try out sometime as well!

When I saw them,i had to buy them & after seeing aloe& honey...I bought all the boxes I could..2. And after smelling these😍😍😍I'm so glad I did! Fit? almost perfect, the eyes were a bit too small. I made it work this time & its not uncomfortable enough for me to have to cut anything Smell?Extraordinary! the aloe & honey mix...πŸ€— so yummy! Consistency? gooey goodness. thick,clear gel. after removing skin felt soft & moisturized, slightest tack but some piling also. Will have to skip my moisturizer tonight. And will only use these when my skin is Extra thirsty. it was a beach day today. 😁 Ease of use?no trouble Would I  purchase/try again? *$#& yes!
