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

B&BW had / has such a different approach to sheet masks - it seems as all of them are one-offs with no intention of bringing them back. No permanent sheet masks in their line. Itโ€™s too bad, ๐Ÿ˜” they had some that sounded amazing! 

100% agree, the PTR and Summer Fridays pumpkin based rinse off masks are the best pumpkin masks out there. I like the Eminence one but the other 2 are hard to top.

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

@itsfi  Yeah, that's why I don't by masks from B&BW anymore...... I fall in love with one and never see it again. ๐Ÿ˜

Oh, I totally forgot about the Eminence pumpkin mask! I think I still have a sample of that to try! Good to know you liked it! 

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

@Shosh85  Thatโ€™s such a let down. I hate when it doesnโ€™t smell like it should!

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

@ather  It was decent enough, just not what I was hoping for. I've tried better masks that cost half as much. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป

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

This weekโ€™s topic Chemical and Physical Peels, Enzymes. 

So I chose PTR Pumpkin  Enzyme Mask and Codage Masque Micro-Peeling a micro-peeling mask 

 

I have used the PTR Pumpkin Mask before.  It exfoliates, peels and polishes.  There are pumpkin enzymes. AHA, and aluminum oxides in this to resurface the skin and my skin always looks and feels better after using it.   Plus it stays that way for about 3 days. Apply to skin and use circles to massage the skin.  I left it on for 20 minutes before washing it off. Then used the rest of my skin care.

 

Codage is a French company with several skin care products.  This peel uses AHA  in several fruits to resurface and exfoliate skin.  It said that blackheads could come to surface for removal ( really???).  It warned me ahead that there would be minor tingling.  
I applied a thin amount to clean skin.  Yes, it stings.  But not that it needed to be removed.  I left it on for 15 minutes.  Washed it off and my cheeks were red. It looked like a butterfly rash on my cheeks.  No blisters or open skin.  This was gone the next morning.  My face looked brighter (not red) and felt smoother.  There was a tiny surface plug that came out.  It was a blackhead on my forehead that actually came out.  The felt it when I was washing my face and the washcloth removed it.  I was totally shocked ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

 

 I will repurchase the PTR Pumpkin mask but there is a lot of product in the jar so it will be a while,

I purchased CODAGE  from FFF. I can purchase it from the website where they can convert Euros to dollars.  
But I will reserve judgement on buying it after I finish the tube

@Cissy63 glad you enjoy it!

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

@lmaster  Oh for sure!๐ŸŒบ

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

@Cissy63 

The ptr pumpkin is amazing!

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

@missy94612  Absolutely, itโ€™s one of the best๐ŸŒบ

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

Love the PTR pumpkin mask, @Cissy63! And the Codage one sounds really interesting. I'm impressed that it met its claims for blackhead removal. 

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

@quspork  Thank you ๐Ÿ˜€ I just love using PTR Pumpkin, it smells soooo good ๐ŸŽƒ!.  I was shocked that this โ€œplugโ€ came to the surface on my forehead.  I know it sounds gross. But I was impressed!

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

@Cissy63 that mask sounds wonderful! Actual blackhead results? That's a big deal ๐Ÿคฉ

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

@CynthieLu   It was one blackhead in my forehead.  I have a few others. They are very stubborn on this part of my face.  But one came to the surface and I took it OUT!!

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

That sounds like a miracle, you found a great mask @Cissy63 ๐Ÿ˜

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

Oh wow @Cissy63! The Codage mask sounds fantastic! In addition to it getting rid of your blackhead, I like the sound of it brightening your complexion without reddening it first! Woohoo! ๐Ÿ‘ 

 

PTR pumpkin enzyme mask is a classic with a huge following - and for good reason! I looooove that stuff! Smells good, works beautifully! ๐Ÿ˜

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

@itsfi   Yes to Pumpkin.  The Codage is new to me as well.  But it helped to release one stubborn blackhead that had not budged in forever.  Now, there are more like this in the same area.  I will see how another masking session works out!

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

Keep us posted on the Codage please @Cissy63. It sounds like it could be the blackhead whisperer. ๐Ÿ˜Š 

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

@itsfi  Will do ๐Ÿ˜€

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

@Cissy63  I love the PTR mask. So good!! I havenโ€™t heard of the other brand before. 

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

@ather  Yes that Pumpkin mask is wonderful! The Codage I think came in a FFF box.  I had to look up the product line as I didnโ€™t know about it.  But it was good enough to use again and see if it workโ€™s another stubborn blackhead out!

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

@Cissy63  That PTR is one of my most favorite wash off masks! The yummy scent is a nice bonus! So happy had such great results! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
