Last weekend, two of my oldest, closest friends came up to Toronto for a visit. We had such a great time! For our Saturday evening festivities (yes, we are wild), we thought it would be fun/silly/amusing to have a few drinks and play around with some Asian skin care products, namely the wonderful, creepy phenomenon that are sheet masks. You know, those superbly hydrating fabric masks that form to your face and also make you look like a mannequin/ghost/serial killer? Yeah, those ;) We opted for the My Beauty Diary Broccoli Face Masks, and hilarity ensued.
I chose to spare my friends some public embarrassment here, but I decided to share the most charming aspect of our little spa night- that my boyfriend decided to join in as well! He's such a champ! And I must say, his skin was all the better for it ;)
I offered my help with the mask application, but he was determined to go it alone. When he emerged from the bathroom looking like this, I nearly fainted from laughter:
Turns out, sheet masks don't adhere to beards. I did my best to make the mask fit, but his facial hair was a definite obstacle.
We took one more ridiculous photo together, then he decided to get creative.
"I'll just trim the mask!", he exclaimed, and off he went to the bathroom with a pair of scissors and an air of determination. Here are the remnants of his experiment:
And voila! A perfectly-fitting sheet mask that let his beard breathe. I must say, he looks rather serene here ;)
No matter how many minutes passed with him wearing that mask, I couldn't get over just how hilarious and endearing the whole experience was. Despite my best efforts, I could not, for the life of me, stop laughing. Here I am chuckling so hard that it looks like I'm crying. He thinks it's pretty amusing :)
So there you go, even more evidence that my boyfriend it pretty awesome. I don't feel bad sharing these picture (and I did get his permission, of course), because clearly he looks way better in this mask than I do. While I looked like a dilapidated ghoul, he somehow ended up resembling some badass superhero. I think it was the headband. And the fact that he is pretty badass ;)
I hope you enjoyed this peek into how I spend my weekends. Despite my uncontrollable laughter, I was able to maintain my blogging integrity and truly put this product to the test. Look out for a full review of the My Beauty Diary Broccoli Masks coming soon!
Have a wonderful Monday! xo
