Cucumber Facial Masque Update
Posted by Lauren on July 11, 2001 at 17:31:05:I did a very cool design on my hand for my high-school reunion (which
I will post as soon as I get the !@$^% @***~~ ! USB plug for my
camera...) and used the masque on it. I put toilet paper over the
masque while it was still wet, then wrapped with TP and plastic and
The Good News- no smearing, no running of the design, even where my
fingers bend! Great smell, easy to apply, nontoxic. Fun to peel
off, and where the masque had bonded to the paper, it all came off
with one peel. No residue, skin was very conditioned after.
The Bad News- although the design as a whole was clear, the edges
were not as crisp as usual. The center of the lines are dark but
there's a very small halo effect around each line which makes the
whole look almost as if it's not quite in focus. If the henna is not
almost-to-cracking dry, the masque may rehydrate it and mix with the
henna and smudge it and bleed. This will happen at once, so it's
possible to fix, but it's something to look out for. It's easy to
get the drips on clothing or whatever, but also washable.
Overall- the out-of-focus effect was really distracting, but I like
the other feautres a lot. I will have to try it again and see if I
can get the design in focus, and if I can, I'm sold!!
