Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

100% with you @Shosh85! The snail isn't unusual to me either - it's actually a staple in my collection. Can't be without it. πŸŒ I've seen black snail as a skincare ingredient but I don't think I've use a mask with that particular species (is it a species?! Will need to look that up.). Your mask also fits the letter of the week challenge - G for gastropod!!! πŸ˜πŸŒ The material and results from this one sound good! πŸ˜

 

Curious, have you tried other masks from this brand? I like the aesthetic on the packaging. Ummm, not that that would be the sole reason that I would pick up a mask... πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ But let's be real, it does catch my attention!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  Oh my gosh, how could I forget G for Gastropod?!! Haha! πŸŒπŸ˜‚

 

I have tried 5 from this line and have 8 more left in my stash to use. So far I would say they're in the, good-not-great, filler-type masks category. πŸ˜‰

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Good intel on the sheet mask @Shosh85! There was a time when I would have been all onboard for good-but-not-great sheet masks, but now that I know of so many more sheet masks and resources for them, I’m more focused on the ones my skin likes best. Having just one face also helps with not having too many filler masks. 🀣 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

From last week - unicorn!


I'm not too original here and I am so glad that @faeriegirl  mentioned this mask because I didn't realize it was expiring. Whoops.


I've probably reviewed this one before, but it's Biobelle's Unicorn Glow Mask. The mask is made of tencel, slightly hydrating, and has a light chocolate smell. There's a slight tingling sensation, but nothing concerning for me.


This was a good reminder that I need to go through my 2021 masks, though, and see if I have anything else about to expire.

@PrettyPaint  Such a great picture!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Thank you so much @ather 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

The packaging is just too pretty and magical @PrettyPaint 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@lmaster  I really like their packaging--and all the pics of treats!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

It's always nice to see those reminders about ones that might be close to expiration, @PrettyPaint

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@quspork  For sure! I really need to go through my 2021 masks and organize by month, I think. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint, ooh, light chocolate scent sounds wonderful! The original masks from Biobelle are all so great. So sad to see them go. BTW, that plushie is so cute. Is it one of the Squishmallows?

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  haha, fantastic job at the squishmallow identification. I actually should have photographed the unicorn squishmallow, but my son decided that one is his πŸ™‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

You mean Stella Unicorn @PrettyPaint?!! πŸ¦„πŸ˜‰ At one point, I knew all the names of the Squishmallows. I had too - I was quizzed on them by a toddler. Hahaha! πŸ€£

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi You amaze me with all of your special talents! πŸ™‚ 

 

Is it possible that some are unnamed? The tag doesn't have a name on it. I looked it up, and it's just called pink sequin unicorn. I am going to post a pic of it later tonight...haha.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint, I think it’s absolutely possible some are unnamed. I only wish the little had some unnamed Squishmallows; having to keep track of the names had my head spinning at times. πŸ˜‚ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi That's hilarious. I feel that way about the beanie boos. In my experience, all of them have names. Ugh--the Scholastic book fairs even sell these beanie boo "books" that show pictures, names, and DOB for all beanie boos that may be purchased. 

 

Here is the unnamed unicorn:

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Oh my goodness @PrettyPaint! Your unicorn Squishmallow is so cute! 😍 There are beanie boo books?! Okay, I am going to keep that information from becoming public knowledge for as long as I can. 🀣 Sometimes I don’t know what is better - that the plushies have names so I can look up what they are, or they don’t have pre-assigned names and she makes them up. Because sometimes, a plushie has a different name depending on the day. 😝 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  Oh yes, it even comes with a free poster.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint  I really liked this one - the tencel and chocolate scent is a nice combo πŸ˜ƒ

So sad these are discontinued though - glad you were able to use this one before it went bad! πŸ‘

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Shosh85  I know! I really wish they would bring back the classics. πŸ™‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

F is for fruit, and lychee was my fruit of choice for my various masking over the weekend

F - fruit Lychee.jpg

 

Sheet Masks:

Spoiler

Mask:

Sephora Collection Clean Face Mask Lychee

Vitamasques Vegan Collagen Lychee

 

Material:

Eucalyptus-derived fiber

Triple layer vegan cellulose (eucalyptus fiber)

 

Fit:

Pretty good. Fit can be made to work with adjustments to length an corners of the eyes, nose and mouth. The β€œhole” for the mouth is actually a slit (as opposed to a cut out). I don’t have an issue with this but I know that some prefer the traditional oval cutout shape.

 

Good. Width was perfect fit. Adjustments needed to length at chin and inner corner of eye hole and corner of mouth hole.

 

Adherence:

Good

Good

 

Type of Essence / Serum:

Clear, semi-viscous essence

Typical sheet mask essence, perhaps slightly thinner, but not runny.

 

Scent:

Fresh and slightly floral scent; I don’t pick up lychee per se.

Yum! It smells more like peach and lychee, with the scent leaning more towards peach. I wouldn’t mind the scent in a hand lotion.

 

Claim(s):

Moisturizing and glow

Plump and moisturize

 

Results:

Skin is hydrated, plump and looks bright and dewy.

There was a lot of essence remaining on my face even after 30 minutes of wear. Leaves a slight tack as the essence is pressed and absorbed into skin. Skin felt hydrated and bouncy, and had a fresh-faced and dewy brightness to it.

 

What I Liked:

Results are really good. This is one of my top 2 from the Sephora Collection Clean sheet mask line.

So many likes with this one. Fit, feel and results were great. IT smells wonderful, too! Happy to hear that the sheet is biodegradable. Price point is good as well - $2.99.

 

 

Area(s) for Improvement:

Would love if this had a lychee scent. The price ($5.50) for this mask seems a smidge high. I’d like to see Sephora’s previous sheet mask offer apply for the new clean line (buy 3, get 1 free) and for that offer to apply to all of clean sheet masks and not just select flavors.

 

Availability. It seems like Target (online and certain stores) is the only source for these masks. Not a bad thing as I am quite fond of Target.

 

Will I Repurchase?:

 

I’ll repurchase if I need to hit a minimum spend for a promo gwp, or perhaps if there’s a good offer or sale. Now that I’ve discovered the Vitamasques version of the lychee mask though, the Vitamasques one will likely be the one I’ll reach for more often.

 

Absolutely. If I wasn’t so close to reaching my target sheet mask number, I’d break my no-buy and pick up a few. But I’m going to be good and hold off.

 

 

Sleeping Mask:

Spoiler

The Sephora Collection Clean Face Sleeping Mask Lychee has a lightweight, slightly pink hued, jelly consistency. The texture is reminiscent of the Laneige waer sleeping mask. This has an extremely subtle scent. It smells more floral to me, albeit a very, very light floral. I don’t pick up any fruit, let alone lychee, scent. On the one hand, I think the light scent makes it suitable for more people, which is great. On the other hand though, I did pick up this lychee mask hoping for a lychee scent. I know, it’s like a no-win situation If it were heavily fragranced, I’d want the scent to be subtle. The sleeping mask absorbed nicely into my skin overnight. My skin looked slightly hydrated and I’d say my complexion has a less dull cast to it, which is a plus. This sleeping mask isn’t bad; but I’m not sure it stands out from a results perspective. The price point on this one, $5, is good. This one seems like it will be better for me in the warmer months, when my skin is more dehydrated-combo (oily T-zone; normal-to-dry everywhere else). @lmaster, my recollection is that you picked up a couple of these sleeping masks as well; would love to hear your take on them after you've had an opportunity to give them a good try.

Lip Care:

Spoiler
For all of last week, I paired my masking sessions with the LUSH Unicorn Lip Scrub, a sweet fruit scented sugar based scrub that gives the gentlest of exfoliation. Thank you again @Shosh85 for sending this one my way; gotta keep the lips soft and smooth! πŸ˜  Lip oils are one of my go-to's during the colder winter months for keeping my lips hydrated. Over the weekend, I followed up the LUSH scrub with the Ciate London Burst Hydrating Lip Oil Lychee & Acai, which has a light, pleasant fruity scent and does a good job of adding a sheen to my lips while keeping them from drying out. This one has come in handy @ather; thank you! Can't have enough lip oils on hand during the colder months. πŸ€—
