Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Since I started my masking on Sunday night and finished in the wee hours this morning, this will count for last week's letter of the week (H for Holika Holika) and drugstore theme, as well as this week's 3-step theme. Thank you @heartsmyface! I ordinary take 3-step masks / multi-step masks with me when I travel, but as that's been grounded for a while, this helps to get through this part of my stash! The focus of this masking is my nose.
The aim of the Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Black Head 3-Step Kit is, as it says in the name itself, clear blackheads. Here's what each step is intended to accomplish and the time recommended for each step:
Step 1Opens pores, making it easier to remove blackheads15-20 minutes
Step 2Removes blackheads and dead skin cells10-15 minutes
Step 3Tightens, minimizes and soothes pores5-10 minutes
What I thought would be a 15-20 minute endeavor is actually a 30-45 minute project. My thoughts on each step are:
  • Step 1: This nose strip is drenched in the watery serum and there's more in the packet. Adherence is good.
  • Step 2: This is the set's version of the Biore nose strip. On it goes. It hardens to let you know it's time to remove and when I did, out came the whiteheads.
  • Step 3: The nose strip in this third and final step reminds me of a bio-cellulose sheet mask, but in the form of a nose strip. It's sandwiched between a plastic sheet and netting and is saturated in a viscous, somewhat sticky essence, which actually comes in handy as it helps the otherwise slippery nose strip stay on my nose. The cooling sensation feels nice. 
Overall, this is a nice 3-step. I was surprised by how well it worked. It is very time consuming and the 3-steps are something that I think can be easily replicated. 
  • Step 1: Run washcloth under warm water, wring dry and press onto skin
  • Step 2: Biore nose strip
  • Step 3: Apply pore minimizing serum to nose
Overall, this was a nice 3-step to try. If I had another one of these, I'd happily use it (when I have 45 minutes to devote to it), but it's not something I would go out of my way to seek out. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  These can be fun when you have the time, but 45 minutes sure seems like a lot of time to spend on just your nose! I do love the packaging on these though - I'm always tempted to pick 'em up just for the cuteness πŸ˜‰ 🐽

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes!!! That is exactly how I feel @Shosh85! 45 minutes on just my nose?!! I hope I remember not to be drawn in by the packaging again. That’s just a lot of time. I feel like 30 minutes of sheet masking on my face is a lot as it is. πŸ˜‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Wow, seems like a really intense mask.  45-minutes. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@tjffc, I know, right?!! When I use the Biore nose strips, it’s 10-15 minutes, and I feel like I get the same or better results. This nose pack isn’t bad, just more time consuming than I would like. Glad I tried it though.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I really like how you replicated this mask at the end, @itsfi. It’s very helpful, especially since this one seems like quite the pomp and circumstance for a little nose masking! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It is quite the TLC for the nose @eshoe. A little too much for me to do on a routine basis. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It seems that @SchylarR tried this one and had similar feelings about it, @itsfi. At least you’ve cleared out a bit of room for another mask now! πŸ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi wow that sounds really time consuming, I don't realize how long it takes

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It was @lmaster! Here I was thinking each step would take no more than 5 minutes each. Not so. πŸ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Sounds kinda fun! I need to dig out my strips. I hate them lol. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

You don’t like nose strips @Samtian?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Yes and No. I like looking at the stuff it pulls out, but it hurts lol.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II


the little piggy noses are so cute!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

They're super cute @nuinui933. Not gonna lie, that's why I picked up this set - the packaging. πŸ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I have some β€œS” to wrap up from last week! 

Volition silt gelee mask: 
so this is one of my favorite clay masks. I will say, this is a new tub and the formula doesn’t seem the same. The color is slightly lighter, the smell was slightly different and the texture seemed slightly different. It still did a good job but it wasn’t quite as creamy as my first tub which was disappointing 

briogeo superfood body cream: 
I am obsessed with this new body moisturizer. It smells amazing! It’s the perfect blend of coconut and banana though more heavy on banana. If absorbs really well and is non sticky 

when snow magic face mask. This is a standard bio-cell like sheet mask. The fit was nice as usual for the brand. If had a sort of citrus like scent which was pleasant. I left it on for the full 30 minutes and it was nice and cooling. I didn’t find it super brightening but it was hydrating, I would use it again! 

Also finally got to try the sol de janero strength and smooth shampoo and conditioner. So I did love how this smelled. My hair was left super soft after using it, but almost like too soft. I don’t think it did a very good job of smoothing - there’s this sort of thing that happens to my very curly hair that I heat style when it’s like too soft so it ends up just being puffy and frizzy. I’m glad I got to try it and I loved the smell but I wouldn’t buy 





Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Kim888  I didn't even know that body cream existed- it definitely sounds great! The scent you described sounds exactly how the Briogeo banana shampoo & conditioner smells - have you tried those?  
Glad to hear the When mask turned out pretty decent for you! I didn't find it to have the greatest brightening effects either, and I also don't love that there's alcohol- but like you, I'd still use this one again!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hmmmm @Kim888 the Briogeo sounds like Glow Recipe Banana SoufflΓ© Moisture Cream 1.69 oz/ 50 mL for your bodyπŸ₯°

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Kim888 The body cream sounds delightful!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

The briogeo body cream sounds so delicious @Kim888 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Kim888, I also thought the SdJ shampoo/conditioner left my hair feeling too soft. I thought it was just me. I *think* it may be the shampoo more than the conditioner, but can't say for certain. I am going to have to pick up that Briogeo body cream - the scent on it sounds fabulous!
