Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I am currently using a sample of Tarte Clay mask. It is a multi mask sample, one side is clay the other gel. I didn't have enough room for both so I'm just working on one side at a time. I also finally finished the snowman mask haha.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian, Iโ€™ve seen this mask before - itโ€™s in a huge tub with a pretty top but itโ€™s a lot of product, I recall. Iโ€™ll be interested in your thoughts on the clay mask after youโ€™ve gone through your sample. Does the mask have a noticeable scent to it?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I looked it up, it is really pretty! I honestly don't remember, but I'll be using it again on Thursday so I'll be on the look out for any scent.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Whatโ€™s your thoughts! Iโ€™ve seen it but never tried it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ather I'm going to do it again tomorrow night so I'll post on Friday my thoughts and stuff, because I honestly don't remember.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Sounds good!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh that sounds pretty cool @Samtian never tried that one before

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster It's pretty interesting.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian   Well this brought a smile to my face.   My brain thinks clay and translates that to drying which I know isnโ€™t always the case.  Is this meant to be more a hydrating or clearing mask?  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface I'm glad, I love making people smile. This one is supposed to be clearing. It has a gel part with it that does the hydrating. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian Oh my gosh, I love this photo! ๐Ÿ˜What kind of results did you see from this one?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  ๐Ÿ˜„ ha thank you! I didn't notice anything but oily in the morning. i'll keep a closer eye next week.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Your photo is amazing @Samtian! Does the clay mask seem effective?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica haha thank you. I didn't notice anything. I was really oily when I woke up but later in the day it went back to normal. I'll have to keep a closer eye out next week. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hitting both themes this week for Autumn and P (as in pumpkin)- a face-to-face duel of the Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask and the Summer Fridays Overtime Mask 2.25 oz/ 64 g

Both of these are wonderful masks that I know many of us have enjoyed so I thought I'd do my own little comparison on how they compare to one another. I used the PTR on one side of my face and the SF on the other and here are a few thoughts:

-On general formulation: The PTR is a more viscous consistency. It's a deep pumpkin-orange color with small, silty grains. The SF is a thicker, yellow cream with larger exfoliating granules. 

-On scent: The PTR is closer to a straight pumpkin scent while the SF exudes delicious pumpkin pie. I really prefer the SF scent because it just smells amazing with that hint of spice and sweetness. 

-On use: Both apply easily. The PTR has a bit of a cooling/tingling sensation for me. Whereas, I didn't even notice that I had the SF on. Both rinsed off easily. 

-On results: Both left my skin feeling very soft and smooth to the touch. The side of my face that has the PTR was noticeably brighter and had less redness (which I can be prone to) than the SF side. 

 

In the end, these are both masks that I would (already have) repurchase(d) but for different reasons. The SF is, for me, more of the spa-experience mask that I use when I want a hit of that yummy scent to get me in the fall mood. The PTR is what I reach for for function, giving great results beyond just the smoother skin. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Both sound lovely ๐Ÿ˜Š 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Love your comparison @quspork 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks for the side by side comparison, @quspork!! I'm working through the PTR right now, but have the SF one in my stash and now I'm curious about my own side by side.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Love both of these masks @quspork  you're bang on in that they help you get into the fall mood!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks for the comparison @quspork! I had the PTR ready for this week but it is still way too hot for me to be in a fall mood. Hopefully by November/December ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Yumm! Love this comparison! These both are favorites of mine as well and I definitely agree both have delicious scents! I feel like your conclusion of these is spot on - the PTR seems more for function and the SF seems more like a gentle exfoliating spa mask ๐Ÿ‘Œ Happy to hear both masks are ones you enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
