Wine + Mask Wednesday (HobNob Pinot Noir + Scinic Black Dual Mask)

Mmmm... Wine and Mask Wednesday - there was no forgetting this week! My theme this week is "black" - you will have to work with me over the next few weeks, while I don't have access to my wine collection (from renos), some of my themes may be a bit of a stretch! 

My Wine of the Week is:

HobNob Pinot Noir ~ $19.99. Bright ruby colour with pink rim; cherry and raspberry aromas; dry, medium body; juicy ripe berry flavour with medium finish.

Pinot Noir - right, Noir is black in french! HobNob is made in the South of France. I love a good Pinot Noir, so I am looking forward to trying this! 

Here is a look at the Wine:

This is a very dark Pinot Noir - it was very rich and tasty! It was flavorful and had just the right amount of fruit flavor. This is actually a little too dark for my taste, it was good but I would probably search for a lighter Pinot Noir next time! 

Here to match my Noir wine, here is my Black mask:

Scinic Black Dual Mask (Aqua White) ~ $3.58 ($17.90 for 5). Two-part sheet masks are specially designed to address the specific needs of the T- and V-zones. T-zone mask regulates and balances oil secretion, refining pores and texture with regular use, while the U-zone mask moisturizes dry patches and firms up facial contours. Active ingredients of black sesame, black rice and black beans drench skin in amino-enriched proteins to promote skin health. Recommended for all skin types.

I got this black mask in the October Mask Genie Pouch. I love black masks and this one is a two part mask that targets different needs for different areas of the skin. 

This mask is applied a little different than most regular sheet masks: wash face, tone skin, apply the top piece of the mask, apply bottom piece to face, leave on for 20 minutes, remove both pieces of mask, pat essence in to skin, and complete skincare routine.

Here is a look at the pieces of the mask:

I loved that this mask came with 2 pieces and the bottom piece included a neck attachment as well. This mask was soaked in essence and I left it on for 30 minutes, but could have left it on longer! I really liked this mask - it made my skin feel great and I definitely will repurchase this!
