Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yep. Those worms can do that @lnum ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Lol @sonnydee this makes me think of those Facebook ads that show someone making a mask out of orange juice in a mask making machine... but with gummy bears.  I'm now considering melting down gummy bears and putting them on my face.  This isn't something I've considered before but, hmmmmmmm.....

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sounds like a lot of work @missjeanie fruit roll up on your face like a mask would be so much easier๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I like where your head is at @sonnydee !

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm not sure of why they choose gummy bear as the name either @sonnydee either way I love it too

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

๐Ÿคท still Tylenol grape chewables to me @lmaster ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Yummy! I just wish they made minis of them more available! It has taken me SOO looong to finish the FS berry I have! I do really want to try this and the lemon one though! ๐Ÿ˜‹ ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Agreed I would rather have minis too @Shosh85 this & the lemon are the only full size i own...i do wish they will add even more flavors too. Pineapple, orange. I like options๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Mmm, I wouldn't mind peach too ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‹

So I started off this morning using the farmskin kale mask.  Guys... I think Kale is disgusting.  This qualifies as a mask of the week for me lol.  All that said, this mask had no real scent to it, and had the same mask texture and fit as the other farmskin masks, it had a lot of serum soaked into the fabric and fit nicely.  I keept it on for 20 minutes while I got my coffee ready and convinced myself that I did indeed need to go to work (I'm not much for mornings).  After removal I'll honestly tell you my skin just looked like it always does after a face mask, a bit more hydrated, a bit more bouncy, but nothing crazy out the ordinary wowing.  Now... After having my skincare and make up on for about 13 hours I have to say my skin looked great!  Was it the skincare I put over it, the foundation I picked today, or the morning mask? Who knows but I liked it.  I'm going to do the same skincare and foundation tomorrow and see if a completely unscientific experiment will prove kale a new love for me.  

When I finally removed my makeup (I was honestly sad no one was seeing me up close and I had to take it off, it looked that good) I went in with the Beauty Diary's Hyaluronic Aid Ultra Moisturizing Mask.  I think I convinced myself this qualified as a G mask since there were gems on the front package.  I picked this knowing I'd be using a drying treatment serum tonight so I wanted to give my skin a pre-treatment boost.  The scent on this was super light and clean.  The material is a bit more paper like than the mornings farmskin, but it had pre cut slits that worked well enough that I didn't bother snipping the bridge of the nose. My skin felt really nicely hydrated after 20 minutes and the extra serum massaged in quickly with no real tackiness to speak of. Mid summer I could probably get away without a moisturizer after this one.  This time of year, I'll still need one for my dry skin. I have a couple more of these and I wouldn't shy away from trying out others from the line at some point. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

You don't like kale @missjeanie?!!! I don't have it nearly as often as I used to - a few years ago, kale was the main veggie in my life. ๐Ÿคฃ It, along with spinach, served as the main ingredient in my morning green smoothies. I'd have it in salads and even made kale chips and kale pesto. It was bit much, I admit. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I feel like I have this Farmskin mask in my stash; will have to look for it and try it out as a morning mask, before my makeup. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I just can't do it.  I mean if it's mixed into something I'll eat it, but I'm not the one ordering a kale salad. lol. I think I've always found it a bit too substantial for my liking I prefer a more generic romaine or spinach for my green salads and banana's and berries for my smoothies. I'm totally not the best at adulting with my foods.  Cookies deserve to be a breakfast food dang it! lol I'm trying to be better the last few years, and generally I do much more balance than at once point, when a loaf of bread and cheese was a full meal, but I just can't do some of the super healthy stuffs yet.  

I actually was reminded how much I do enjoy the farmskin masks last week.  I'm on a bit of my own 'theme' this week but I'll be happy to use up the ones I do still have in my stash!  The kale was for sure the surprise of the bunch.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I used kale in a vegetable soup and enjoyed it @missjeanie but don't think I've had it any other way. I need to use the rest of the bag. How have you had it? I doubt I would like it raw. Anyway, glad the kale mask was a winner!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica I've had it in salads and as 'chips'.  Neither impressed me.  I'm going to chalk it up to just not being my thing.  We can't like it all right?  That said, I'd try another mask or skincare with the ingredient. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie laughing because I LOVE kale, however in mask form, it never fails to disappoint ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Well @eshoe  I've tried to love it, I really have, but I just can't get there.  I love salads, I grow lettuces all summer, but I just can't do it with kale.  I did do my unscientific experiment and have determined that my skincare makeup combo just works well for me.  I'm back to hating on kale since it wasn't my skincare dream ingredient lol

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Haha. I absolutely love kale. Especially the curly kind - I'll eat a whole salad of it. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint do you have a secret recipe?  I swear I want to like it, I know it's good for me... but dang it I just can't get there... chips, salads, smoothies I'm maybe just not a kale gal?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  It must just be a tastebud thing. That being said, I find fresh kale from the farmerโ€™s market to be so much better than what is found in the grocery store. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Hmmm..... I'll be interested to hear if you get the same results from repeating the skin care/foundation combo! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  I tried the same thing today without using a mask of any kind this morning (ya girl hit snooze one too many times).  It turns out I can keep hating on kale.... the volition strawberry serum, mushroom serum, milk moisturizer and sheseido sunscreen with the Nars sheer glow, Dior concealer and MUFE powder were apparently the right combo I've been looking for.  Dang it really is wearing well today too.  I'm going to see how long I can keep it on for tonight and return the kale chips from my online grocery cart back to the virtual shelves.
