Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I actually just cracked open a pack of the pearl eye patches from Look At Me @ShortErica , so far, they're both pretty much the same.  I'm aiming to try and do it as often as I can, but I know myself and I won't likely end up doing them daily.  

I do prefer hot tea during the winter, as I don't drink hot tea.  I honestly tend to get most either from David's Tea, a Canadian company I believe, or I grab random ones from Winners/TJ Maxx.  I usually pick fruitier ones.  In David's tea I just smell them all until I find something fun.  One of my constants is the Passion Tea from Starbucks.  It became an addiction when I ran one in a big hotel and I enjoy it hot or cold. This summer I've been deep into iced coffee.  I've lined up a half dozen flavour shot bottles and seem to go through about 2 Litres a day lol.  Do you have any favourites so far, or a category of favourites?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@missjeanie I tend to go with black tea varieties or something fruity. I've tried some more savory ones like caramel or chocolate type of flavors but have to be in the mood for them. I remember the passion tea and would get the iced tea version never hot. I'm sad Starbucks bought Teavana and closed their stores. It was always nice to try a tea before you bought it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Sounds like we have similar tastes @ShortErica .  I really enjoyed doing a tea advent calendar last Christmas.  There were for sure a bunch of the sweeter, caramel, s'more's, and birthday cake type of flavours, but it was fun to try them since I got enough for about two big cups of loose leaf tea each day.  I did find quite a few tropical and fruity varieties that pushed me to start with more in store purchases.  I drink my tea black and actually just had a 'Caribbean crush' this afternoon.  A tropical variety, it was nice.  I'm a bit on the ridiculous side lately and saw today that I need to drink more... I may or may not have gone wild and purchased a bit too much... I mean at least it doesn't go bad lol. Do you drink a lot of teas?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@missjeanie I probably do 1-2 cups a day. I want to get uncaffienated versions in the future. I'm still working through my stash. I thought I would be through them this year. But even with the extra time at home, I still have so much. Shhhhh but one of them is from when I went to Turkey in 2008. Still tastes good to me.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica You just made me feel better!  I don't have any from 2008!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Happy to help @missjeanie. πŸ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I think I had that marshmallow mask @missjeanie is it kinda iridescent pearl color?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Kind of a pale pink @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@missjeanie Mask twinsies! - I just used this one!..and oh my goodness, I loved reading your post!
Funny that you could post pictures with your phone and not your laptop, because it was sort of the other way around for me! - with the last post I could post one picture with my phone, but it wouldn't let me post any more than that. Then I tried posting the additional pictures from my Mac and that worked 🀷🏻

Interesting that you didn't pick up a scent on the Oozoo mask! - to me it had a sort of slightly strong perfumy scent. Haha! πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸ»

I totally agree with you on the Bliss mask - it's a great texture and feels good going on, but not sure it really did anything. I'm still enticed by anything with "marshmallow" in the title! (especially food πŸ˜‹)

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That dang marshmallow mask eh @Shosh85 , I mean I'm not mad at it by any means.. but ya... it's not likely to be a repeat purchase, but I'm sure I'd buy another mask labeled with marshmallow any day.  

I went back and stuck my nose in the pouch of the oozoo mask after reading your note and I still don't get much of a scent, maybe a generic soapy scent, which is why I likely didn't notice it the first go round.  

I usually tend to BIC on my MacBook, I just find typing easier on a keyboard and prefer the look of the page this way.  But the last few weeks I keep getting an error message when I try to post with a pic in the message.  I swap over to my IphoneX and it works just fine.  I'm no computer wiz (by any means at all) but I'm going to try to update my laptop again and see if that helps?  I hope yours starts working better on your phone!  Dang BIC... I just get used to things after 2 or 3 years and it changes up again lol

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@missjeanie I remember almost buying that marshmallow mask, but the ingredients list stopped me. I like that this mask is tied to a Target memory for you, though! Who can resist the lure of the big red bullseye, especially when there's not one near home? 🀣 

 

I'm also glad to see your review of that OOZOO gold mask. I've had that one on my "maybe try one" list, and now I might pull the trigger on it (if I can find it in stock anywhere). I'm surprised it had no scent, considering how much coffee oil it contains. In fact, I'd suspect tingling might've come from that ingredient instead of gold, except that you've had a similar reaction to other products that contain gold. Anyway, good to know this mask delivers on the moisturization claim! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Lol... @WinglessOne I swear I get to a good Target and I'm gone for a few hours.  My ex used to laugh when we'd go to visit his family in lower Michigan... every time I'd have to go in just for a couple minutes... that always turned into a couple hours.  I don't even think he heard me when he was getting out to pump gas and I was getting out to run to the store.  I did at least pick up Starbucks for both of us on the way out lol

I tend to enjoy masks from Oozoo that I've tried and this one was no different, even with the little bit of tingling I'd still use this one again.  My skin needs and wants all the moisture it can get.  Usually it's only bad during the winter... but I'm guessing that since I turned 30 it's been getting drier and I'm finally at the point where I'm dry/combo during the summer now too.  Dang aging.... I still think like I'm 25! lol

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Where to begin @missjeanie? I have so much to say in response to your fabulous post - love your memorable moments!

 

* oooh, ginger tea sounds delish! Maybe iced ginger tea for me right now - we’re in a heat wave! 🌞😩 

* LCBO - how have they not checked in to see if your refresher stash needed restocking?!! How rude! 😝 

* Target run - love that you made a pit stop into Target. I, too, would have been sucked in by the β€œmarshmallow”. I’m pretty sure I have a mini of that mask. Even more sure I just picked it up because it had β€œmarshmallow” in the name. πŸ˜‰ 

* That’s interesting about the tingling. I hope you are able to find out if you have a sensitivity to gold. 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hahah @itsfi  I'm shocked the LCBO hasn't checked in either.  The one near the boat I tend to frequent a lot more in the summer... they may have known my name last year lol.  I do work part time in a brewery so that's been covering boozy needs this year.  And yes... how can anyone resist trying a marshmallow mask?? I hardly ever make 'real' iced tea, I do enjoy the super fake powdered sugar stuff from time to time, but I'm thinking that I might need to make some sun tea tomorrow now.  Great idea!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oooh, sun tea @missjeanie! Yum! I remember the time I leaned from my mom how sun tea was made. Jar + water + tea bags + sun!! What kind of magic Is this, mom?!! 😳 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi I tend to do it with the flavoured teas more in the summer.  It really is nice to make a jug to have in the fridge.  Today was a black tea with peach.  Should be good to go for after dinner masking!  Thanks for the idea!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Black tea with peach?!!! Yum! That sounds refreshingly delicious @missjeanie! Enjoy! 😊

 still can’t add a photo from my laptop and need to do it from my phone??? Why???

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@missjeanie Mighty marshmallow!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ohh the one I'm thinking of is a melon mask @missjeanie

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster I'm pretty sure the melon one is in the same line.  Was it wowing for you?
