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

@nuinui933 printed masks kind of get a pass, donโ€™t they? Cuteness makes any less than desirable nuances less noticeable, and I am ok with thatโ˜บ๏ธ

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

Awwww how cute!! Sounds like you definitely found a pre mask product!! Great idea โ˜บ๏ธ @eshoe 

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

Yep I am loving the multi-functionality of it, @lmaster! Extra goodness in less steps๐Ÿ˜

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

@eshoe, that's a cute panda mask. ๐Ÿผ It'll feel good when you are all done with the SF mask; that one felt like a never ending tube. It smelled wonderful and I liked it so I didn't have any complaints. By the way, is that the Summer Fridays R + R Mask 2.25 oz/ 64 g? The tag product looks like their pumpkin-based exfoliating mask. 

 

Interesting that you found the R+R to be a little harsh; I've read other reviews that have mentioned similar experiences. With your next use of the mask, you might want to try adding a little bit of cleansing oil to the pads of your fingertips as you massage and rinse off the R+R mask. I would do that to help tone down the filmy/waxy feel that would sometimes remain from the jelly part of that mask.

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

Oops, good catch, @itsfi! I did tag the incorrect one, thank you. The oil cleansing cloth sounds like a solution I wish I would have known about oh, maybe a year and a half ago ๐Ÿ˜„ I will remember to put that to use for the remaining product.

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

@eshoe  Oh, what a great looking panda mask! ๐Ÿผ The results sound great and the Violette_Fr Boum-Boum Milk sounds like it was a wonderful addition! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85 it is always a relief to open a mask and find a fruity scent; even more so when the packaging has no clue as to what it will be like ๐Ÿ˜„

 

The Boum-Boum has found just the right place in my routine, I am happy to say. I might even try diluting it a bit for summer, or use it 1-2x a week as it is heavier than just my Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist 2.53 oz/ 75 mL and Pixi Milky Toner. It will be interesting to see how it performs during the winter!

One more pretty packaging 

IMG_20210614_221112241.jpg

  • This is the first time I've used this particular version from the brand
  • This was a black sheet, that was drenched in clear serum
  • Tons extra in the sleeve
  • Scent was fresh and smelled so good!!! Not overwhelming at all!
  • Fit was excellent and stayed adhered the entire time
  • Wear time was 30 minutes
  • I'll gladly use this to help with wrinkles, in terms of results,, nicely hydrated, plump and smooth skin with a bit of moisturizing
  • Normally with this brand, there is lingering tackiness, I didn't wait too long with this one before applying moisturizer, so I'm not sure if it would of had lasting tackiness, sorry!!
  • Would definitely repurchase!!IMG_20210614_221117118.jpg

    โ€ƒthe sheet had gold flecks throughout

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

That does have some pretty packaging, @lmaster. It sounds like the mask worked out nicely as well. 

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

@quspork I was extremely impressed with this one,, more will be needed ๐Ÿ˜†

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

@lmaster, this one looks and sounds nice. Definitely a fitting choice for the pretty packaging theme. A fresh scent is always good but especially in spring/summer.

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

I do like the brand in general @itsfi but this one knocked it out of the park!!

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

@lmaster  Oh, this one looks and sounds so great! I love that has gold flecks! ๐Ÿคฉ

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

@Shosh85 this one has to be my favorite from the brand! Hands down!

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

@lmaster what a luxe touch, the little gold flecks are so pretty! Makes me want to search out this brand again!

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

@eshoe this one is awesome!! By far my favorite yet from the brand

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

Closing out last week's letter theme with an X for x-factor in the fight against maskne: propolis

X - x-factor maskne.jpg
 
The last 12-15 months have involved an on-off battle with maskne. Over the course of that time, I've found that there are certain ingredients that my skin responds very well to in that hopefully coming to a close fight against maskne. The two most helpful ones for me are propolis / honey and centella asiatica. These coupled with a salicylic acid serum for spot treating an area or a few spots like Paula's Choice BHA 9 Serum, a clay mask, an oil with anti-inflammatory properties like horse oil (thank you so much for that recommendation @heartsmyface), and acne patches like Peace Out Squad Acne Dots have worked well for reducing the size of pimples, getting rid of them faster, and healing acne scars and reducing discoloration / PIH from it.  
 
Wash Off Mask:
Spoiler
Innisfree Pore Clearing Clay Mask is easy to apply, dries down but doesn't get hard and tight. There's volcanic ash and lactic acid  in this mask that helps with the clogged pores along my jawline and nose. Additionally, when used as a spot treatment, it gently slurps up excess oil without drying the skin and helps to reduce the size of a pimple. It doesn't work as quickly as reducing the zit as say GlamGlow SuperMud but it's also a lot less drying than that product. 
Sheet Mask:
Spoiler
Missha Mascure Solution Sheet Mask Propolis is a mask that many of the maskers here have enjoyed using. Though late to the party, I'm happy to have the opportunity to try it out, all courtesy of our fabulous @Shosh85.  This "PT cell sheet" is covered but not saturated in a milky-cream liquid having a consistency between an ampoule and an emulsion, and a scent that resembles a blend of essential oils more than honey. I only pick up the very faintest bit of honey sweetness. There's extra in the packet as well. 
 
Material - PT cell sheet:
The mask advertises that it is made of a special derm sheet, which made me curious as to the material, so I did a little more research and learned that it is mascure PT cell sheet. I wasn't able to find much on "mascure" other than google inquiring whether I mean to look for massacre, which I assuredly did not. LOL. Makes me wonder if that is something proprietary because a search of that term yields masks from this Missha line. "PT cell sheet" seems to be a more generic term and used by other Kbeauty brands, including Mediheal; it stands for phase transition cell sheet. The "phase transition" seems to refer to the technology or process used to create the comfortable cellulose sheet mask. 
 
Adherence & Fit:
It's not super thin, but I'd describe it as slightly thinner than your standard medium thick sheet. Adherence is good and fit is near perfect - the only adjustment I made was to fold up about an inch of the material at the chin. 
 
Results:
After 30 minutes, my face still has a lot of serum on top of it though it absorbs quickly and without tack or stickiness when I press and pat it into my skin. Once the serum is fully absorbed, my skin feels soothed and nourished with a nice bounce to it, and it looks slightly brighter. Just the T.L.C. my skin needs. Thank you @Shosh85 for sending this one my way! I'm eyeing the ceramide one from this line next. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

@itsfi  Love all the products you used here! That BHA 9 is the best! 

I'm happy to hear the sheet mask worked out well for you! I really loved the serum in it. ๐Ÿ˜Š

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

@Shosh85, it's surprising how that BHA9 serum can be so effective without drying out my skin. ๐Ÿ˜ Loved propolis before and my love for it just grew by leaps and bounds during the pandemic. As much as I love it, I'm very much hoping that I'll need to incorporate it into my routine with a lot less frequency now. ๐Ÿคž

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

@itsfi I wonder if there has been a spike in acne dot sales over the past year. It certainly seems like they have been in more frequent rotation around here, unfortunately! 

 

 

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

@eshoe, I would not be surprised at all if there was a huge uptick in 2020 and this first half of the year in acne dot purchases and demand. ๐Ÿ™„ I know for myself, I was going through them at an alarming rate at one point. Ugh.
