Midweek Mask ~ Formula 10.0.6 Be Berry Smooth

Happy Hump Day, y’all! I am getting excited, finally haha My hubby comes home Wednesday to help get out daughter moved back to school and my truck is ready! Not exactly sure which I’m most excited for, at this point hahaha He’s been working out of state since the end of June, and he’ll be going back a few days after we get her moved … sigh … pretty bummed about that, honestly. We gotta do what we gotta do sometimes, even if we don’t like it. That’s one of the things about adulting that I don’t love. Ah well, I am also elated to be getting my truck back. My transmission went out, then my distributor went haywire and this time, my spark plugs were a mess, likely a result of the distributor. The repair guy (a longtime family friend) said it runs like a totally different truck now hahahaha I am going to assume that’s a good thing.

I also got several deliveries today … YAY! In one of those deliveries, was a whole box of skin care from Ulta! Sometimes, Ulta and Sephora take forever, to process and ship my orders. I have no idea why, but I placed this order on the 11th. Not too bad. Anyway, I had forgotten what I ordered, so it was quite a treat to open the box and find this guy, begging to be reviewed tonight haha

I was more than happy to oblige! I have never purchased a peel off mask in a tube. It’s always been the one use packets, not that they are all that different. Then only difference is I can use much less when it’s packages like this. When I’m using the one-time use packets, I really feel like I have to use all of the product (no matter how much is really in there), so that it doesn’t dry up and go to waste.

For starters, this smells amazing. Definitely fruity, but not sickly sweet kind of fruity. You can pick out the berry and the pineapple. It also has some interesting ingredients: actual blueberry fruit, coffee, morinda citrifolia, also known as cheese fruit (lol, whatttt?), mangosteen, pomegranate, tea leaf, and açai. WOW!!! This mask is chock full of botanical, superfruity goodness! It says it will reveal “super soft berry smooth skin”. Let’s just see about that …

To begin with, I used significantly less that I usually do, simply because of the packaging. This resulted in a much thinner coating on my face. I’m not sure how I felt about it being thinner, and may use more the next time I use this one, to see if it makes any difference.

It’s a sheer lilac color, and smells incredible. It goes on just like normal peel-off mask and the instructions say to leave on 10-15 minutes, or until dry. Mine dried fairly quickly, except for my forehead area. That took a bit longer, for some reason. Removal was pretty standard, except it said to rinse thoroughly with warm water. Is that standard with peel off masks? Hmm lol for the life of me, I can’t recall! Now, was I moisturized?

Umm … maybe. My cheek area, below my cheek bones felt a bit dry initially. That may have been from rinsing with warm water, really. After waiting an hour or so, my skin does feel quite hydrated. Is my skin “berry” smooth? It didn’t magically remove texture, but my face does feel quite nice. Maybe with multiple uses it will work on my texture? That would be cool, and I will be paying attention to that, the more I use this.

I really like this one. The price was fair ($7 at Ulta), the smell is pretty awesome, and my skin feels pretty nice. I’m looking forward to seeing what repeated uses will do for my skin! Do you have a favorite peel-off mask? Lemme know all about it!

Mid~ Week Mask ~ Pineapple Peelie

Good evening, friends! Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday! I had to make an unexpected visit to the doctor today. Turns out, I have an ear/throat infection and thrush. Welcome to life with an autoimmune disease! I’m on a Zpack, a round of Diflucan and a Nystatin mouthwash. Yay. Needless to say, I feel awful, which is why this post is coming so late. I took a late three-hour nap this afternoon … the kind of nap that causes you to question what year it is when you wake up. Then, I took a second, hour and a half nap and woke up again about an hour ago.

Because of all of the above, I felt like a needed cheery mask. I dove into my mask collection and pulled out this one, from last month’s Target beauty box. There are still boxes available for this month. You should check them out!

This mask smells AHHHHMAZING! It was definitely the pick-me-up I needed. Like most peelie masks, the liquid is incredibly thick and just kind of messy to deal with. Of course, it dripped everywhere while I was trying to get it on my face haha

These types of masks always feel super weird to me while they are drying. One kinda cool thing about it: when I touched my face, I couldn’t feel it in places, once it dried. It just felt like my skin. This required 20 minutes, or until fully dry, so I just kicked back while it dried.

Removal was … different. It actually hurt a little. I’m not sure why. I didn’t apply it thick, but it really didn’t want to leave my face haha

I tried going slowly, but that just made it worse. This had to be ripped off, just like a bandaid. Polyvinyl was the second ingredient, so I’m guessing that’s why it stung so much. Yikes, y’all. If you try this brand out, be very careful. There was also a casualty.

If you look closely, there’s a hair in that clump of dried mask. I lose enough hair … I don’t need any help with that. To be fair, that was my fault. I applied it a bit too close to my hairline.

Final thoughts … hmmm The packaging claims this mask is hydrating. I don’t feel hydrated. My skin doesn’t feel particularly soft. It stung like crazy when I took it off. This was not my best peel-off mask experience. The only thing this mask has going for it is the scent which is very nice. If you get this mask in a box, I’d say give it a shot. If you see it and want to spend money on it? Nah … I would recommend that you pass on this one. There are plenty of peel-off masks from Freeman that don’t hurt and smell lovely. I highly recommend any of theirs.

Have you all tried this brand before? Did you have a similar experience? Lemme know! I’d love to hear your experience with it!
