Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

@itsfi 

Banana candy sounds yummy.

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

Oh I am so glad you reviewed the Honey Sugar mask, @itsfi. I have held off on it as the Black Sugar is chock-full of granules, and isn’t something I can use regularly. I might need to try this one soon.

 

 

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

@eshoe, yeah, sometimes too many granules can be a bad idea. Have you tried using the original as just a cleanser, taking just a small amount and mixing it with a cleaning oil? Or, to use as a mask, taking a little from the jar and mixing it with a creamy, hydrating mask like Summer Friday Jet Lag or even the Peach Slices snail mask? You’d get some physical exfoliation as you spread the blended product onto your skin but the hydrating mask would add a bit of buffer to the scribbles as you’re massaging the products onto your face.

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

Hmm, no, I had not considered something like that, @itsfi. What a great suggestion! I need to buy another jar of the Peach Slices as I am almost out (again), and this gives me even more reason to do that asap. Usually I just repurchase extra-scrubby face masks as body exfoliators, but I like this idea☺️

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

@eshoe, extra scrubby or harsh face exfoliators work great as body scrubs! I feel like I have a backlog of body scrubs for this reason! πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

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

I suppose having exceptionally smooth skin would be a side effect of this backlog then too, @itsfi - fine by me πŸ˜‰β˜ΊοΈ

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

@itsfi love that banana mask!!

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

@lmaster, you’re in good company; it’s well regarded by many of our fellow maskers.

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

@itsfi  Oooo I love a forgotten wonder! This masking sesh sounds Devine! 

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

@ather, at one point, I had so many masks, they were, as @missjeanie has once said, almost all forgotten wonders! πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ I have a more manageable lot now with mainly mask packs and a handful of individual sheet masks, many tried-and-true and a handful of new ones that I've picked up out of curiosity as well as a few BIC inspired / enabled sheets. Banana and honey, ather, that's a good combo! I think honey will be making more of an appearnace in my masks this fall and winter. πŸ’›πŸ―

banana_despicable_me

 

Yes to all the bananas, @itsfi. The Ulta one is a nice one to have around for when you need something yummy smelling. How do you like the Le Paradis balm? (and have you tried the watermelon version as well??) 

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

Love this gif @quspork! It put a smile on my face. I love the Le Paradis lip balms - the banana and the watermelon one - it's balmy but not greasy or sticky, and my lips feel hydrated and lightly moisturized. It says it imparts high shine but I think it's more of a sheen; it's not a gloss or lacquer. The balms are packaged in a metal aluminum (?) tube, which is great from a sustainability but in the warmer months, it can be problematic. I do hope they bring out other flavors but I don't think that will happen anytime soon. They have a very small, selectively curated collection of products - all deliciously scented. They just released a face oil; I'm debating over it. Fragrance, naturally derived or otherwise, is not something I mind in my body care products, hair care, and fragrance, but when it comes to face products, other than the lips, I'm a bit more careful and picky. @missy94612 

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

Thanks for the review, @itsfi! I haven't tried the brand, but I think I'll be adding them to my list to check out over my holiday spending time coming up, haha!

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

@itsfi 

Love to know your thoughts on the banana lip balm too.

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

Never have I ever come across a banana mask, reading the comments I can tell it's pretty popular πŸ˜„

Great description @itsfi sooo informative. I feel like I know all the important points on this one now.  It sounds yummy!

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

@CynthieLu, there were more banana and banana-honey sheet masks about 6, maybe 7, years back. I don't see brands making them so much nowadays. This one is the more accessible one, at least in the US.

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

I picture the smell of honey banana mask and I'm just like yummy @itsfi πŸ˜„

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

@itsfi  The honey mask sounds like a winner for me.  Not too many granules, light exfoliation.  I love the banana one .  Laffy Taffy  gosh I have not thought about it for years πŸ˜ƒGlad you had good results with these!

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

@Cissy63, the Laffy Taffy was definitely a throwback. I mentioned it the other day to some of my younger cousins and I just got a blank look. The honey scrub mask is lovely. Definitely worth a try; even better if you can get your hands on the sampler set that includes it, the strawberry scrub mask and two other masks.

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

Great idea! @itsfi 

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

@itsfi  That sheet mask is a nice one! ..... I'm definitely a sucker for anything banana scented!🍌

The wash off mask sounds wonderful! I've been curious to try it! Glad it turned out nice!
