MarchMarch Madness - Competition is in the air! Find a $ dupe of a $$$ mask that is share-worthy? Or find a dupe that works even better than the original? Details, please!
AprilSpring Fling - Baskets and bouquets, showers of much-anticipated rain...this month's focus is herbal and floral sensory delights.
MayDew Drops - May Day lore says to wash your face in the dew you collect in the morning of the first day of May for radiant skin. This month is for absorbing all of that good-for-you H2O.

This was a gift from the kind hearted @eshoe 
I am a foodie and specifically anything sweet, preferably chocolate scented masks are a  literal treat!!


This mask smelled like a fudge sundae 100% possibly the best ever!!

 

I applied to my face and waited about 15 for it to dry

 

Then I used a warm wet makeup eraser to remove the mask

 

My skin felt so soft and rejuvenated

 

I would recommend this one to all the sweet tooths out there ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Ha, your lyrical sense made me smile, @lmaster - you are so creative!

 

Yay for chocolate masks, the treat good enough (almost) to eat ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe haha!! I try โ˜บ๏ธ I made brownies last night, and the batter was very reminiscent of this mask ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿ˜

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster  Yum! ๐Ÿคค this sounds delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹ 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@ather out of every chocolate mask I've tried this one is so authentic to actual chocolate

This week was colder and it made my skin very uncomfortable and dehydrated. I needed a moisture boost so I decided to try a new sheet mask that I received as a gwp from Deauville Boutique ( U go coco- hydrating coconut mask by Avatara )

 

The product is vegan and not tested on animals. The mask has hyaluronic acid which is one of my favorite ingredients.

The quality is good for the price (itโ€™s worth 5$ CAN)

 

I applied it for 20 minutes. The sheet fitted well on my face. There was extra lotion in the pack so I applied it on my neck.

It felt very fresh and had a cooling effect.

It left my skin glowy and moisturized. There is a good improvement on the dry spots on and around my nose. I really liked it and itโ€™s something i would purchase in the future.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Lila12345678  Glad your skin got some love! Itโ€™s so cold where I live and my skin feels it! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Lila12345678, I haven't tried all of the sheet mask  varieties from avatara but have enjoyed the ones I have used. This one looks and sounds like a refreshing treat for the skin. ๐Ÿ˜€ How often do you use a sheet mask?

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi 

I try to use a sheet mask at least once a week in winter. Twice a week would be ideal for me ๐Ÿ™‚ 

 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Lila12345678 sounds like lovely results

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This mask sounds like type of hydration refresher we could all use this time of year, @Lila12345678! I also had to take a peek at Deauville Boutique, looks like they have some excellent masks ( ๐Ÿ’– Yon-Ka). Thank you for sharing, and introducing me to a new place to shop for masks ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe 

 

I ordered from them 3 times and I always had a good experience. Processing + shipping time were fast. I buy my haircare there (Davines products).

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

A few of us on the nails thread, @ather @caitbird, have been working on growing our nails and making them healthier. For a while, mine were suffering from breakage and peeling, but have since become stronger and are getting longer. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

 

During the holiday, I remembered I was gifted this Life Brands Cuticle and Nails Mask - Nourishing (Lemon Oil & Vitamin E) and thought it was a good time to put them to use. I've used finger masks like this before, but not from this brand. 

Life Cuticile & Nail Mask.jpeg

Finger masks.jpg

There's a subtle, very light, lemon scent that is pleasant and refreshing. It contains, among other ingredients, glycerin, lemon oil, vitamin E and various citrus extracts to soften and moisturize your cuticles. Instructions recommend keeping these nail masks on for 5-10 minutes though you can keep them on longer if you'd like. I lost track of time and had them on for about 15, maybe 20, minutes. 

 

After removing the masks and massaging in the remaining essence, I felt that my cuticles and the skin around my nails were lightly moisturized and more soft, so that's a check โ˜‘๏ธ for the mask's claims. These are fun for some specialized attention and TLC for the cuticles. It would make a nice pairing with a sheet mask.

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

These are especially fun masks, @itsfi. Nice that they are longer than some others to give more of your skin some pampering! 

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

@itsfi  ooo these are interesting! Iโ€™ve never seen a finger mask before? I like this idea! Really good way to make sure your fingertips are getting all the special care! 

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

@ather, these were really nice. Years back, maybe around the time the mask thread first started, the Le Mini Macaron brand had a couple of flavors of cuticle and fingernail masks. I don't think they make them anymore. The packaging was super cute  it was ice cream shaped. I first thought they were just for fun, but these really work wonders. You said it best - special care masking! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

Sounds lovely! @itsfi 

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

@lmaster, oh, they were; just what my fingernails needed.

BCL Saborino peach.jpg

 

Spoiler
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.
