Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@emaisgr8  Great choices!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@emaisgr8  I thought this was a butt mask from the thumbnail on the main page haha.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I did too @Samtian lol!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@emaisgr8  I like this mask too! The candle and lip balm sound like they make the perfect trifecta! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@emaisgr8 totally love this mask!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

is for Freeman’s Hawaiian Black Salt peel-off mask. 


I received a couple of Freeman’s mask from Influenster to review. Last night I used the Black Salt one. I really like Freeman products. This black salt peel-off masks just wasn’t remarkable to me. It took a lot longer than the listed 10-15 minutes for it to dry down, but that could have been me using a too thick layer. It did not hurt peeling off, which is a plus. I just do not feel it deep cleaned my face as the mask claims to do. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@emaisgr8 @I think a thicker layer is key to helping ease the pain of removing it, though it didn’t sound like you had any, yay!


I usually forget to check my skin after a detox mask. But they are nice to use!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@emaisgr8  I feel like a lot of Freeman's mask are hit or miss - sorry to hear this one was a miss! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh, I just got this in a Glossybox. Great insight, @emaisgr8!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@emaisgr8  Aww darn. It didn’t seem to live up to its claims!!

ughhh, πŸ˜’ let down. At least it didn't hurt @emaisgr8πŸ–€πŸ–€...

ughhh, πŸ˜’ let down. At least it didn't hurt @emaisgr8πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€ sounded i interesting though

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

B is for berries; strawberries in particular πŸ“ which I was inspired to use as my ingredient focus after chatting with @WinglessOne about the original Strawberry Shortcake!

The Creme Shop Strawberry Nose 3-Step Blackhead Remover was a gift with purchase TCS dropped into  an order. I tend to put off using these multi-step nose strips because I haven’t found them to work very well for me, but I decided to give these a try this week. My final thoughts are the packaging for this is cute but Biore still holds the top spot in this field. The Biore nose strips have been consistently good with helping to clear up my nose.


Pure Smile Strawberry Milk Essence Mask smells yummy and like other sheet masks from this brand is a good, filler mask. I was reminded I had this mask (and the Lanolips 101 Ointment Multi-Balm Strawberry) when I saw a post by @heartsmyface on both a couple weeks back. I don’t have a general preference between these milk essence masks and the regular watery essence masks; I tend to reach for the milkier ones when I’m looking to moisturize my skin as well as hydrate it (and the masks from the regular line for just hydration).

LovLuv Real Milky Strawberry Facial Sheet Mask is a two-step serum and unscented creamy cupra cotton sheet mask. I was a smidge disappointed that this one wasn’t scented, especially as strawberry extract is the second ingredient listed; milk extract is the first! The lack of added fragrance though is a plus, as well.


The first packet holds plenty of the clear, semi viscous serum for 2 generous layers and absorbs nicely, without stickiness. I’m not sure how purifying the serum is but it does seem to satisfy its nourishing claims fairly well. I may try the serum packet on its own to see how it fares.


There’s enough essence in the sheet mask to coat it without overwhelming it and some extra in the packet to add more to the mask. This extra came in handy for me as my skin was in need of a bit more of the soothing creaminess of the essence that particular day. Instructions recommend leaving the mask on for 10-15 minutes and that was about right for me as my skin really slurped up the essence.


Overall, the mask is a nice one; the ingredients list is great. I'm not sure this is one I would consider a must have for my collection, but it is one I’d certainly reach for. I’ll be interested in seeing how this one performs in the cooler months; I think it’ll be a nice one in the fall and depending on how I find the mask at that time of the year, I may change my mind on its place in my mask collection.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I am so impressed you still have Strawberry in her original packaging, @itsfi! Mine just lives in my memory bank;) Lemon Tart may be one of the newer ones-they have a newer animated series that is great for young girls, chock-full of positive messagesπŸ₯°

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That @eshoe, I’m sure we can thank my mom for. I have a feeling she kept that doll in its box and probably put it high up on the shelf in a closet after seeing how well my brother and I treated my dolls. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Love the theme, @itsfi. I was obsessed with Strawberry Shortcake and the rest of her little gang (especially Blueberry Muffin haha) when I was a kiddo!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes @quspork!! Love Blueberry Muffin!!! πŸ’™ I was trying to remember the rest of the crew the other day and only came up with Blueberry Muffim, Lemon Meringue, Huckleberry Pie, but I know there are more. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Plum Pudding- I loved her because she wore glasses like me haha! I know there were a bunch more too...


Actually I just checked wikipedia and it's a really long list- wow! I don't remember some of them but also a few are coming back to me, like Banana Twirl. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Plum Pudding @quspork!!! I loved purple as a kid so I’m not sure how she slipped my mind. I think at one point I had a Ginger Snap doll as well. The good old days. 😊 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Well they both sound nice and I'm glad to hear at least one of them had a yummy scent πŸ˜‰

Love Strawberry Shortcake! My sister still has her doll from the 80's and I swear it still has that scent! πŸ“

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85, that’s awesome that your sis still has her Strawberry Shortcake doll. I find myself all giddy and gleeful when I rummage through some old boxes and find things like that from when I was a kid! ☺️

It’s been interesting working my way through my mask stash as well. There are some that I’ve been happy and surprised to find (and excited to try) and others where I wonder how it found my way into my stash... or why I seem to have multiple ones of the same mask! πŸ€”πŸ˜†
