BCL Saborino peach.jpg


I've been moving more to multi-mask packs - I still use, and will continue to use, individual sheet masks - but have been spending some time trying out different mask packs. I've tried several different variations of the Saborino mask packs; there are two types - ones geared for morning use and ones marketed for evening use. 
My preference has been for the evening mask packs from this line - the morning versions contain menthol and while that is probably a great ingredient in the morning to wake up the skin and user, it's too much for me. The nighttime versions I've tried so far do not contain a menthol scent. 
I'm happy to share that the BCL Saborino Good Night Melting Fruits Mask does not contain a menthol scent. I'm even happier to share that it contains a lovely peach scent. It's sooo good. It's not 100% peach but definitely peachy. 
Like many multi-mask packs, the sheet in these are on the smaller side, but is piable and can stretch to fit many face shapes and sizes. The openings for the eyes and mouth are on the narrower side, but not so narrower as to be restricting for my facial features and because the material is stretchy, it can be adjusted for a more comfortable fit
These sheets are surprisingly more saturated than other packs from the brand. Surprising because I did not turn over the pack (to let the essence make their way to the top sheets) like I normally do and these still did not dry out after 10 minutes of use (recommended wear time is โ€‹1 minute). My skin felt hydrated and bouncy. These are definite winners and are no longer a forgotten wonder. Thanks so much for this theme @missjeanie - it made me look deep into my stash. This is one I would repurchase once I make my way through all 28 sheets.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Not forgotten but definitely a wonder! Clarins Cryo-Flash Instant Lift Effect & Glow Boosting Face Mask 2.5 oz / 75 g tones, tightens and tackles time in ten minutes, all with a lovely cooling sensation that lasts long after the pale mint gel cream is tissued off, leaving skin feeling more hydrated, supple and slightly more taut. ๐Ÿ’—

This jar will last me a while but it is one that I would repurchase once I make my way through it. And now, off to pull out and set on my counter a couple of masks for @missjeanie marvelous forgotten wonders theme! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi oh I agree, this one is a winner!! It was in my November favorites too ๐Ÿ˜„ 

 I also wanted to let you know I tried another one of the SEPHORA COLLECTION Hot Cocoa Face Mask 1 mask / pack and guess what, this one had a playdough scent to it,,, guess what else I found out, there was a tiny pin poke hole in it. I'm not sure if the hole lead to the scent smelling off, I'd be curious if yours happened to have a hole in it that went undetected, or somehow was exposed to the air before we actually opened it, either way super disappointed 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Yaaaay! We're mask twinsies @lmaster! How often are you using the Clarins cryo mask?


Oh noooooo!!! You picked up the playdoh smell?!! Grrrr!! I was holding out hope that I just got a dud! Ugh. Okay, I'll pull my other one out and try it. Wait, what?!! There was a pin poke hole in the mask?! Do you remember where you saw it? Lemme know when you get a chance and I'll take a look. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I'm using it about 2-3 x a week, my skin feels softer and softer the more I use it ๐Ÿ™Œ 

I'm going to do my photos for my empties tomorrow and I'll pull it out, I actually think my other one has a hole in it as well. 

I'll lyk and take a pic of the hole so you can see it

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–



I have not looked at my last mask yet to see if it has a hole in it, but if it does, something is suspicious ๐Ÿค”

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

omg @lmaster, if only this platform had sound to accompany my reply. There would have been a huuuuge intake of breath and a big gasp when I saw your pic. WHAT?!!!! Oh, definitely suss (as I think the kids are saying these days ๐Ÿ˜‚ or maybe they used to say it. If I know about it, it's probably something they used to say. I'm not current). I'm even more intrigued now. 


This could be a mystery caper for the masking thread, Inspector Lmaster!!! ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ˜‰

@itsfi that word is fluent in my household ๐Ÿ˜‚ with two boys 8&9!! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This sounds like a good one, @itsfi. Soft and supple are always nice results to have! Clarins is such an underrated brand IMO. They deserve more love!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Sheโ€™s a beauty @quspork! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ’ฏ agree - Iโ€™ve been a fan of Clarins masks for some time but it seems like theyโ€™ve really upped their game (and potentially their marketing) of their skincare line simultaneously with their reformulations and repackaging. What Clarins products do you like or love?

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi This sounds absolutely lovely, the cooling sensation would be fantastic for a pick-me-up in the morning time. Thanks for sharing! โค๏ธ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

That's true @QueenMarceline; I've been rushed to get out the door most mornings so I hadn't thought about using the Clarins in the morning but you're right, that cooling feeling would be a lovely. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I love that picture of the product. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Thank you so much @Samtian! I'm pleased with it. It was a bit of a happy accident and the frame turned out better than I could have imagined. Sometimes that's the way it goes.

A little "me" time 

sc foot mask.jpg



The holiday edition of the Sephora Collection foot mask is something I purchase every year, usually in multiples - so I have a few for myself and several to include in care packages, as stocking stuffers, or for house guests during the holidays. This year was no exception. I first used this mask about a month ago (the photos are from that masking session but the performance and results this go around are pretty much the same. 
There's a lot to love about these foot masks - easy to use, quick (recommended wear time is 20 minutes, but there's enough serum in the packet for a longer wear, if desired or needed), and they perform beautifully. Usually, the hardest decision to be made is whether to just sit back, unwind and relax with them on, with a book or TV show; or, whether to put on a pair of socks so I can walk around the house and possibly do some chores. With Thanksgiving dinner complete, dishes done and most folks either watching the football game or doing some online shopping, I decided to go the relaxation route, with a pair of beauties secured to my ankles, a glass of wine on the side table, and my laptop open to the BIC forums. 
The cream inside these booties was evenly dispersed (yay!) and my skin drank up the moisturizing goodness in the 20 minutes I had on the foot mask. The only "cons" with these masks are minor - the pattern is always a fun one but this year's design isn't my favorite and it would be nice if they had a special scent for the holiday versions of these masks. It's all good though, as it is truly the results that count, and they were wonderful here! Whenever I see these results, I'm reminded that I need to be consistent with my use of these foot masks. So far, I've used them monthly. Fingers crossed that holds true and I reach for another one of these masks next month.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Holiday Coconut Foot Mask is currently out of stock online (hopefully to be restocked) but there should be some still available at your local store. 


Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Wow!! @itsfi that's incredible for your feet!!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

It did an amazing job @lmaster!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi These are probably my favorite type of foot mask SC produces. I hope they never get rid of this one, the discontinued Lavender was a great close second.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@QueenMarceline, sorry to hear they discontinued your lavender foot mask. I love these holiday versions - the foot mask sells out every year. Good news though is that the coconut flavor is available year round since it's part of the permanent line. No holiday print or packaging on it, but same great results. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I think the Coconut is the one that has been a staple since they made the masks, Lavender I believe was replaced with Cactus which is still nice but for some reason the Lavender gave a very nice cooling effect (at least for me) that I've yet to find a replacement for. Fingers crossed that Coconut is here to stay, because she is a STAR ๐ŸŒŸ
