Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85  Last year (I think?), when Sephora had a CBD oil promo, I took advantage twice. The first time I ordered a DS of Lord Jones Royal Oil 1000mg Pure CBD Oil 1 oz/ 30 mL; the second time I got a DS of Flora + Bast Age Adapting CBD Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL. I'd already been using and loving Herbivore Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil 1 oz/ 30 mL by then and was just curious about other brands' offerings. I'd never tried anything by Flora + Bast before. I liked that DS so much, I bought a full size bottle. It's all cannabis oil, not a blend of other oils like Lord Jones (cannabis + grape seed oil) or Herbivore CBD (cannabis, meadowfoam, sunflower, & MCT oils). The Flora + Bast oil is as good as the Herbivore CBD oil at calming my inflammation. But I get more antioxidants from the Herbivore oil because it's a blend of many ingredients. 


I can't speak for anything else Flora + Bast sells. πŸ™‚ I just really like this particular product of theirs. Also, I feel obligated to mention: if marijuana is legal in your area, you can probably get a CBD oil from a dispensary that's more potent than anything Sephora sells. I'm just sayin'. (CBD is non-psychotropic; THC is the stuff that gets people high.) 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  I think people do often get CBD, THC and hemp confused with each other. I just finished my FS bottle of the Herbivore Emerald Oil and I loved it, but like you, I want to explore other CBD options. The Flora & Bast sounds pretty great - I might just have to try that one next πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This mask sounds more appealing to the longer I read your review, @WinglessOne. I think my skin could tolerate the oils well. Interesting point you make about pinpointing the part of the tree that is used. I can’t recall which mask it was, but I learned that different parts of the plant held different potencies of certain ingredients, and they also had slightly different Latin names on labels.  

I am going to try a couple of other masks from this line, too. My watermelon had added fragrance that was more reminiscent of lotion than watermelon πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ But I’m betting there is a live out there, somewhere. A five-minute mask certainly sounds good in theory!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne Did you have a favorite of the old version or ingredients in one of them you enjoyed?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  I don't remember using the old versions of Sephora's sheet masks, though I'm sure I have. Either they're not memorable to me or I'm confusing them with other masks. I do recall using some Sephora eye masks, and I've used some wash-off masks. Hmm... I just looked up some of the old face masks and I think I've used the aloe one before. I wish my old mask spreadsheet was still usable so I could look up my notes... sigh. 


My main issue with Sephora's masks in general, though, is that their star ingredients are often at or near the end of ingredient lists. The old aloe sheet mask is a good exception. Do you have a favorite old version? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne I haven't tried any of the old version. I'm hoping if there was a winner from the previous style that it is mostly the same. Too bad about the star ingredients. I have so many aloe masks. I really should try to focus on using one a week this summer. And oh no, I don't know that I should ask about your old notes.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  Heh, I was just thinking "I should start rolling through all my aloe masks soon." They're so nice for summer weather. Now I'm trying to remember if anyone got an updated "clean" aloe mask. Hmm... I've seen folks review lychee (one of my favorite tasty fruits!), hemp, matcha, grapefruit, and another one I'm forgetting right now... I need to skim that thread again. 


My old mask log was a massive Excel spreadsheet. It got corrupted and now it's a big ol' mess. So I've been rebuilding a new one from scratch. I use Excel so I can filter and sort various data points to my heart's content. Nailing down the new format (something I'll actually fill out for each mask without grumbling) and adding all the mask data is taking forever, but eventually I'll be so glad I redid this. πŸ˜„ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh yeah @WinglessOne. I'm sure the new one will be worth it. Sorry yours was corrupted. I have a "product inventory" spreadsheet and the makes notes are all in just one cell. I'm wondering if having different columns for fit, ingredients, etc. would be better than lumping my thoughts together. Let me know how you end up structuring yours.


I had the pineapple mask which might be the one you're forgetting but there might be another too, coconut? I'm curious how many varieties they'll have.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  Ah, coconut! That's the one I forgot, and now I'm pretty sure I've used the old version of it. And yep, also forgot pineapple. Note to self! 


I'll tag you when I share my mask spreadsheet. πŸ™‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I appreciate it @WinglessOne!
