Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That many empties a day is impressive @missjeanie! I'm hoping for a more curated collection next year too. Have a few things in each category so I can have a few open at once but get through them all before their expiration and the end of the year 🤞

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie I am so, so excited to see another masking buddy! I share your feelings on these, I am 🤞🏼for another meetup before year end @Shosh85 @ShortErica @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm totally game @eshoe !  I saw you and @ShortErica talking about how you've whittled down your collections and did a quick count of the suitcase.... it's just at 500.... That doesn't include masks from MOTM or Unicorn Mail.... I'm gonna need to do A LOT of sheet masking in the next few months lol... My goal is to no longer need the suitcase!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I love the suitcase storage but totally understand why you dont want to need it @missjeanie. Can't wait to celebrate that empty with you - you should post just an open suitcase on the Empties thread 😂

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Wow just WOW @missjeanie 😆 I don’t think I hit more than a year’s worth, I am seriously jealous of both you and @Shosh85! It’s tough picking a mask at this amount, let me say. About 3 per letter, some less some more. Looking to restock in the New Year🥰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe yeah, I've been noticing I'm more limited when trying to match the theme and letters. But that's a good sign I'm making progress!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica @eshoe I blame 10 packs!  The upside to the border being closed is that I no longer have access to TJ Maxx so I haven't bought any in a hot minute.  We'll see how I do with using some up, but I'm soooo excited to get that dang suitcase gone lol.  It does work great, but it's a sure sign that I have waaaaay too much!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie I didn’t realize the border is still closed! Do you still have your PO Box?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe   They go month by month extending it now, so for now it's closed until November 21st, but I suspect by mid month they'll extend it again.  Covid numbers where I am (Canadian side) are pretty good, growing with the colder weather, but still okay, the numbers in Michigan just across the river from me are growing pretty quickly though.  They look at the countries as a whole when doing it though so I can't see it opening anytime soon.  I'll be surprised if it's open before spring, but I'm hopeful it somehow happens before Christmas.  I do still have my PO box, I just haven't been able to get to it.  The guys at the office there are super good though, and have told us that they'll have all of our packages waiting whenever we can finally pick them up, since there are a lot of us who are Canadian and have boxes.  Lol...I still have a Sephora box there from the Spring sale when I thought it would only be closed a few weeks!  I really am cognizant now of how much I crossed before.  I  dated an American at one point and was there every few days, after that I was back to once a week.  I'd check mail, hit up the grocery store (you guys have so much different stuff on your shelves), check out TJMaxx, and grab dinner at a few local places that I love.  Dang I miss the tex-mex at one of my favourite restaurants... going over was always good for me mentally to get into a good headspace of me time. Miss you Murcia.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I’m guessing it will be extended again too, @missjeanie. It’s definitely getting worse again where I am, unfortunately. 

That’s wonderful that they are being so accommodating! That’s so funny you have something yet to get from the spring sale😳 I hope it’s something you still need lol. I have only ventured out to a handful of stores on the past month, and some were better managed than others. Unfortunately at the TJ Maxx I visited (not my usual one), there were used masks on the ground in the store and in the parking lot. Many inside the store weren’t wearing them at all; for me it’s just not worth the risk. 

Tex-mex, yummmmm!!! I could go for some of that right now😂 I made nachos for lunch yesterday, but that’s just not the same. Hope you are doing alright up there, miss ya too. I am really grateful for all of the camaraderie here and the masking fun we shared. Good memories:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I'm very lucky the guys at the PO Boxes are so good.  Luckily what I ordered should be okay, a couple of powdered sunscreens and a bunch of SDJ, bumbum cream, body wash and the perfume I believe.  I actually have a US 100$ reward to use so I'll be sending them another soon.

The Winners here is open limited hours and we have mask by-laws here, but I haven't seen it as worth it right now either.  I'm lucky enough to have had a massive stash of stuff to get through and while Amazon Canada is no where near the beast that is Amazon USA, door to door delivery is a luxury that I'm thankful for. I can't believe people just tossing masks on the ground at stores, I've heard of people doing it here as well, it's just so inconsiderate.

November 14th is apparently National Homemade Guac day... so I'm thinking of doing a full Tex-Mex theme! lol  


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ooooh National guacamole day, I am going to need to make some tortillas @missjeanie YUM!!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I've got my avocados ready @eshoe !  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Mmmm pictures pretty please of your guac @missjeanie! Do you have a recipe you love?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Truthfully I don't really cook with recipes @eshoe , I will however post a pic tomorrow! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

For things like guacamole I don’t, @missjeanie. It either turns out great or a,”huh, that’s interesting.”

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Buddying up with the Superfood Mangosteen Balancing Mask, after trying out the Primera 10-Seed Nourishing Modeling Mask.


It’s been quite some time since I’ve used a modeling mask. This one has two complete sets, including two cups and one wooden spatula.

The first packet has a translucent green gel, which when mixed together...


magically becomes a beautiful sea foam mint green:


The scent reminds me of belif’s products, fresh and clean, but not laundry-detergent type clean. There was enough product for both my daughter and I (bonus buddy pairing) to generously cover our faces. We left it on around 30 minutes, then began peeling it off. It removed easily, though not in large patches. My skin felt soft and cool to the touch, reminding me just how much I love the after-effects of modeling masks! I do wish the packaging would minimized, and it made me realize why the Dr. Jart+ freaky baby masks are packaged the way they the user has a container to mix in, I think. At any rate, I really enjoyed this and would buy it again in a heartbeat!

The Farmskin Superfood Salad for Skin Balancing mask was a good follow up as I’ve had a pesky blemish on my chin this week. I didn’t notice a scent to speak of, and the sheet itself fit well, no snips needed. I left it on around 25 minutes and removed to find no remaining tack on my skin. This line is fun and I will happily use the remainder of my little salad pack🥗 Thank you @ShortErica@lmaster and @Shosh85 for suggesting and joining in for this one☺️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe Great Mask. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @tjffc , fun if you’re in the mood to make a mess!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  That primera mask looks so interesting. Modeling and peel off masks always make me a little nervous, but this one seems like it would be pretty gentle. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It’s a mood thing, @PrettyPaint - I’ve accepted that. Multi-step sheet masks are often pushed aside due to the extra effort required, so to have a multi-step and messy wash-off can seem even more cumbersome. I think you would enjoy it, it’s one of the best modeling masks I’ve tried yet:)
