Not quite one in a “melon” | 😔🍉🤷🏻‍♀️
GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask After trying a couple products from a Glow Recipe kit I purchased at Sephora, I wasn’t very impressed by the brand. Despite this, I’m determined to get through the rest of the set even though I’m feeling a lil let down. Next up was the Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask, a well-loved and mostly well-reviewed product. My first impressions: ✨ Once again, the smell of the watermelon Glow Recipe products is sooo good. This one definitely has a bit more of an alcohol fume happening, which can be a bit overwhelming for some people, but I didn’t find it too be too bad. ✨ This mask is meant to be put on before you head to bed, working its magic while you sleep, and allowing you to wake up to refreshed, radiant skin. I didn’t notice a huge difference with this, but it definitely had some good hydrating properties. ✨ Hyaluronic acid hydrates while AHAs gently exfoliate to help reduce the appearance of pores and smooth your skin. I did notice that my pores were slightly tighter the next morning, but without that super stiff feeling some products give. ✨ This product is part of the Clean at Sephora section, and Glow Recipe is a cruelty-free company. Overall, I didn’t fall head over heels for this sleeping mask, but I did notice a few tiny differences that might have a larger effect over time. I used this mask every other day for two weeks, so it’s possible this one needs a month or so to really show you what it can do. But hey, the smell rocks 💁🏻‍♀️ What’s your favourite sleeping mask? Let me know below so I can find a holy grail! 🙏🏻

🌼My Current Faves🌿
I'm in my early 20s and I have oily acne prone skin. It is very oily in hot weather but it becomes more combination during the winter months. I also almost never wear foundation. If and when I use makeup I usually just do my eyes and a little bit of blush. I try my best to keep my skin clear of acne and blemishes. For the past few months I've been trying new products. Some were good, some bad. These are my current 5 favorite products. FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm This cleansing balm is amazing. It removes my eye makeup and sunscreen so effortlessly. It has no overwhelming scent. I really really recommend this for those who wear foundation and makeup everyday. Kate Somerville - EradiKate Acne Treatment Perfect to get rid of acne overnight. I use this everytime I get an annoying pimple. The smaller pimples dissappear overnight, the big deep ones take 2 or 3 nights to dissappear but this product speeds up the process leaving no scars. I use a q-tip to apply the product. FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask This is definitely one of my all time favorite masks and I own A LOT of masks because I enjoy the little spa experience at home. This mask is weird in a good way because it has a very thick honey like consistency which I don't mind because it turns into a white cream when you massage it into the skin. I leave it on for 15 minutes and it feels so warm, not a burning sensation but like someone is hugging your face, this is a 10/10 mask. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser This cleanser is so gentle on my skin. It smells like a salad but it is not overwhelming. This does not irritate me, the bottle is beautiful glass, and my skin looks so healthy after using this cleanser. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask This was one of my first ever skin care products I purchased from Sephora. I got my first jar years ago when I was a teenager. I still repurchase this little watermelon glass because it reminds me of the beginning of my skin care journey. I love the smell, it feels amazing on the skin as it is very cooling. I sleep with this mask on sometimes and my face looks bright and hydrated in the morning.

🥑GLOW RECIPE AVOCADO MELT RETINOL SLEEPING MASK
🥑 - GLOW RECIPE AVOCADO MELT RETINOL SLEEPING MASK - 🥑 I purchased this Sleeping Mask from Boxycharm Add-ons because I’ve always wanted to try this brand. I really wanted the Watermelon one but they didn’t have it. BUT you can’t beat the price I paid for it. Lol This cozy, Retinol-Powered Sleeping Mask has Avocado, Matcha, gently smoothing PHA and encapsulated Retinol which is released throughout all hours of the night for skin recovery. This Sleeping Mask is Cruelty Free, Vegan and Free of Harmful Chemicals. - My First Impressions - I have said this before, and I’ll say it again, I’m a sucker for pretty packaging. This Sleeping Mask comes in a cute little glass jar. It’s green because it’s an Avocado 🥑 product. This product makes for great pictures and it’s totally shelf candy. - Scent & Texture - I honestly thought this product was going to smell like Avocados 🥑 but it doesn’t. Kinda let me down but that’s ok. It almost is scent free but it has a very faint fresh scent. The texture is so LUXURIOUS! It’s super thick, like a Balm mixed with a cream. - Effectiveness & Results - I can’t believe how satisfying this Sleeping Mask is to apply! It feels like it just melts into my skin! It doesn’t leave my skin looking and feeling greasy or sticky like other Sleeping Masks do. It isn’t heavy either. It absorbs really fast without leaving any film or residue behind. It moisturizes so well! I apply it before bed, then wake up glowing! My skin looks brighter and lighter. It looks hydrated and healthy. I even like using it as a basic facial moisturizer. It’s light enough for everyday use. At least it is for me. - My Conclusion - I am thoroughly impressed with this Sleeping Mask. It’s super effective and fairy affordable. It is gentle enough for sensitive skin (at least I think so?) I definitely recommend it for any skin type or tone. It would make a great Christmas Gift for all you Hubby’s and Wifeys out there Gift Searching! Thank you for sticking with me on this one! Thank you for reading as well! I hope you all enjoyed this article and this product! Any questions, comments, complaints or suggestions? Let me know in the comments below! UNTIL NEXT TIME LOVELIES.................. 🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑 GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask

Time is the cure
First post, the photo on the left is my forehead one year ago on October 11, 2019. The photo on the right is my forehead from today October 11, 2020. I’ve struggled with acne since the summer before 6th grade. I’ve tried a lot of acne products. What I learned over the years is that over drying my face would not help my acne at all. I started using moisturizer and spf which helped brighten my dark spots and protect my skin. I’ll list the products that I am currently using. My skin type is definitely acne prone but oily to normal. COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser I use this morning and night. It’s says a gel cleanser but it foams up when you rub onto hands. It has a herby fragrance which is nice. It’s gentle for morning and night. REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Toner I use this only at night after my cleanser. I feel like it has helped lighten my dark spots and gentle exfoliates any dirt left from my skin. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I use this morning and night. About 3 drops. bareMinerals - SKINLONGEVITY Vital Power Eye Gel Cream I use this morning and night. It’s super light and hydrating. However I don’t feel like it really helps with dark circles when I have those late nights. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer I use this in the morning. I love it because it’s not heavy and great for oily skin. However the fragrance was extremely strong for me at first which I did not like. Great under spf. Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion SPF 30 with Sunflower Extract I use this in the morning. I absolutely love this spf bc it does not make me break out at all. It gives me a dewy glow throughout the day. If you don’t like the dewy look then I wouldn’t recommend but I like it. It doesn’t feel heavy for my oily skin either. The scent reminds me of tiger balm. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream I use this at night bc it’s a little heavier than my daily moisturizer. I thought this would make a bigger difference in my skin but it did what any moisturizer could’ve done. Nothing super amazing so not worth the price tag. I only got it bc it was a gift. DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum I use this at night on every other night. I think it helps with my skin but on the first few nights of using it, I felt like it was stinging my face. Especially around my nose where it could get dry. I only got this to minimize pore appearance around my skin under my eyes. Overall, it does take time to notice a difference for my skin. I typically try to use products for 2-3 months if I haven’t broken out to see results. If I do breakout when using a product after 1 week then I definitely stop. Good luck on your journey! sn

The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser fav oil cleanser ever!!! i cannot suggest this enough everyone needs to try it. so cheap too!! i use a dermaveen foam cleanser, it’s not on here to tag but yes i do double cleanse!! The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 4 stars because i only started using it & i really like it i just need to see some results!! The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% idk how i feel about this. i’m not sure if it’s the right fit for my skin & it burned me the second time i used it!! i was fine w it tonight when i used it so i’m not sure what caused it. for eye creams i am open to suggestions!! i need to find a good one so send your favs my way!! i mix DRUNK ELEPHANT - A-Passioni Retinol Cream with the GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream & honestly?? best combo i’ve ever tried!!! makes my skin soooo soft & the retinol absorbs really well into my skin. obsessed!! again, i am open to face oil suggestions, but i’ve been using DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil & i like it so far, but not enough to repurchase!! let me know your favs in the comments!! thank you all for the love so far!!! i appreciate it so much, you are all so sweet!!💞💞💞

Is Glow Recipe...the Right Recipe?
Now this brand can be considered luxury with relatively high price points. Much like other luxury brands, a lot of the formulations have high amounts of fragrance which can be very irritating. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner -Great source of proven hydrators and leaves a healthy glow -Antioxidant rich formula that is alcohol free. -Helps smooth texture. -Fragranced and the ph is outside of the ideal PHA and BHA needed to effectively exfoliate. GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser -Contains a good amount of antioxidants. -Effectively removes dirt and oil then rinses cleanly without leaving the feeling of tight skin. -Stings eyes when used to remove eye makeup. -Contains fragrance which is potentially irritating and product cannot fight acne as claimed. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask -Lotion-gel texture that absorbs quickly and includes skin soothing ingredients. -Includes sodium hyaluronate and antioxidant rich plants. -Fragranced and packaged in a jar which can compromise the ingredients. GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask -Spreads easily and absorbs quickly which leaves skin hydrated. -Includes four forms of avocado which contains fatty acids and antioxidants. -Contains fragrance and is packaged in a jar which can put the ingredients at risk. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer -Lightweight, gel-like texture which is perfect for combination to oily skin. -Contains fragrance. -It also contains two kinds of antioxidant rich watermelon extracts. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask -Mask has very moisturizing and soothing ingredients. -It’s easy to use and isn’t overly saturated -Contains fragrance which can be irritating GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist -Fog-like mist settles lightly while refreshing both skin and makeup. -Includes hyaluronic acid and soothing extracts. -Contains fragrance. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Lip Pop -Adds a sheer pink color that can be built up for more pop. -The balm doesn’t offer long lasting hydration compared to the best formulas of today. -Contains potentially irritating fragrance which can worsen dry lips. -Doesn’t exfoliate as well as claimed GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm -Lightweight cream that contains extracts rich with antioxidants. -Effectively removes makeup, dirt, oil, and spf. -Fragranced which can be irritating. Conclusion: This brand has too many products that have fragrance which can be very irritating to the skin. There are products with other issues such as packaging that can put the ingredients at risk and cause hygiene issues. Although I wouldn’t recommend this brand, the oil free moisturizer is actually pretty good.

Plump and Juicy Beauty Routine
My skin is the most important thing to me on my face. When my skin is looking right and tight I feel beautiful and confident. My beauty routine can be used day or night and is great for dry skin. I love a plump, juicy, and firm look to the skin and I’ve found this system keeps me looking snatched! It’s important to do this routine in order for the best results. 1. I start with cleansing the skin using the Kate Somerville Eradikate daily foaming cleanser after I’ve dampened my face with warm water. I love this cleanser because of its acne treating ingredients like 3% sulfur. I find it gives me a really deep clean and removes both my makeup and whatever dirt I have. I like to massage it into my skin for about 30 seconds and then rinse with warm water. 2. After I pat my face dry with a clean towel I then tone the skin with the Glow Recipe Watermelon glow toner. This toner has a lovely smell and feel, it has PHA and BHA to tighten pores and plump the skin. I simply apply it on the palms of my hands and pat it gently on to the face and neck. 3. This product is new for me but I’m absolutely obsessed with it. The Kate Somerville DermalQuench liquid lift serum is kinda a game changer for me. It comes in a spray bottle which you must shake well and then you spray it all over the face and neck, it tingles on the skin and foams, you must immediately massage it into the skin after application. This serum honestly firms, lifts, hydrates, and tightens the skin. It’s an oxygen facial and a hyaluronic serum all in one and I’ve seen immediate results with it. 4. The lashes mustn’t be neglected! I then use the Grande Lash lash enhancing serum on the base of my lashes. I’ve seen very fast results with this product, my lashes are growing in thicker, longer, and darker after using the serum day and night. 5. Once those serums have soaked in I then apply IS Clinical’s Youth eye complex to the entirety of the outside area of the eye. This product was gifted to me and I’ve been using it for 2 months now. It gives nice hydration and luminosity to the eye area and is Gentile. I apply half a pump to my ring fingers and pat the product in all around the eye. 6. The moisturizing step is the most important! I have a serious addiction the the Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream. I’ve never tried a moisturizer that made my skin look so good. This moisturizer activates dormant stem cells in the skin and deeply hydrates. It has a Devine creamy texture that literally melts into the skin. I dispense 2 pumps onto my finger tips and begin massaging it all over my face and neck. I do a little lymphatic drainage by massaging from the center of the face towards the outer part of the face, then down the neck to reduce fluid build up in the face and decrease puffing especially I the morning. The best part Is this moisturizer perfectly primes my skin for makeup application as well. 7. This last step isn’t necessary unless I’m feeling like I need an extra jolt of moisture and glow. If I need it I will use the Augustinus Bader The Face Oil on top of the Rich Cream. This gorgeous oil plumps my skin and adds the most healthy luminous glow.

This hurt my skin😡 Glow Recipe PHA+BHA toner😔
SKIN TYPE: Eczema, sensitive & acne-prone. Highly allergic to dust and pollen😔 I have a lot of clogged pores and comedones, unexplained bumps etc. but this toner helped the clogged pores and bumps🥵 GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner This product is a high-end toner that claims to deliver supple, hydrated skin through non-irritating acids (PHA/BHA) as an exfoliant for congested skin/clogged pores. While the glowy look and visible decrease in clogged pores/bumps was achieved it certainly had its cons when I use this product. I’ve used this product for ~2 months and I’m not entirely certain if it’s due to the fragrance or if it’s just not the right product for me but this product really purged tf out of my skin before giving me the dewy, glass skin look. I use the toner after I double-cleanse, using 1-3 drops patting into the skin all over the face until dry, finishing the skincare routine with Avène - Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream , Avène - Skin Recovery Cream & sometimes Bio-Oil - Dry Skin Gel orAvène - Hydrance AQUA-GEL orLA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 Soothing Repairing Balm  I found that a day after each use, my skin begins to dry up and either in angry red patches like a usual eczema flare up, except it’s not really itchy just red and raw kind of pain. This would continue for a few days to a week, sometimes resorting to using my prescribed corticosteroid ointment to get rid of the adverse reaction Although my skin did get angry and irritated like an absolute bitch, I found that my skin did visibly clear up from previous clogged pores and bumps, smoothing the skin and looked quite glowing. I don’t get really pimples anymore after incorporating this product into my routine and when they do occur they’re gone in a day I haven’t seen anyone with a similar reaction to this product hopefully it’s just a minor allergy reaction to ingredients or my bad in over-exfoliating as I found that using smaller amount of toner (1-2 drops) as spot treatments worked as effectively without the irritation Honestly the productGLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner did work for me just not in the way I expected it would nor recommend anyone to try if you know you would react badly to it. The price ($54AUD) could be justified that you won’t be using much at a time so it’ll last hella long and it does deliver what it claims to do which is exfoliate and decongest the skin. I didn’t find it particularly hydrating and has a tacky gel consistency that absorbed quickly into the skin but it did decrease my clogged pores and comedones🥰. After finishing this bottle I would not repurchase since there’s probably new products that wouldn’t cause such a reaction by the time I’m finished and probably cheaper if not better alternatives available.

“No Makeup” Look for Video Calls✨ #CheriePartner
Looking like I’ve put in effort before a video call is good, but sometimes I just want to look a little more “effortless” for my more casual calls. This is my go-to “no-makeup” makeup look for video calls when I want to look put together but not overdone! ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer I always always use a bit of concealer for my undereyes as they’re super dark (thanks mom!). This creamy concealer gives plenty of coverage and leaves a radiant skin-like finish. I apply a dot under each of my eyes and on any discoloration or acne scars on my face, and then blend it in either with my fingers or a fluffy brush. COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Pencil COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Gel Defining the brows helps to frame the face! I love these Brow Boss products from Colourpop because they’re inexpensive but perform just as well as any high-end brow products! The pencil is waxy but still creamy enough to show up in the brows. The gel is more of a whipped pomade texture and helps to lift and hold up the brows for a fluffy look! COLOURPOP - Super Shock Blush Adding a little bit of a blush to the cheeks AND to the outer crease of the eyelids will create a youthful look. I love this blush from Colourpop! It adds a natural radiance and color to the cheeks. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Lip Pop A glossy, tinted lip balm can also help to make you look more youthful and awake! This lip balm from Glow Recipe has AHA ingredients to exfoliate the lips and keep them soft. I also love the soft pink color that this gives the lips! What is your go-to look for video calls?

Step: ? Face wash
Continuing off the last post, were talking about what step is face wash in your routine? Depending on the routine will determine what step it is. The cycles are color coded and match up with my previous posts. The product I’m currently using is GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser I have been using this for the pass 5 months. ⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⠀ What I like about this product is that it is free from harmful ingredients that my skin cannot handle. I recommend it for anyone with sensitive skin. ⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⠀ Scent?⁣⁣⠀ Slightly sweet. Not over whelming ⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⠀ Texture?⁣⁣⠀ It’s like a jelly when it is first placed in your hand, then it foams up into a conditioning and thin lather. ⁣⁣⠀ Recommend? ⁣⁣⠀ 100% ⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⠀ Downsides? ⁣⁣⠀ It is on the pricey side as all of Glow Recipe products are. ⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⠀ What are some of your favorite cleansers?? Leave me a comment. ⁣⁣⠀ Checkout my step by step routine posts to determine what fit is best for you. ⁣⁣⠀ Have a wonderful day lovelies! 🥰🥰

GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask -Lotion-gel texture that absorbs quickly and includes skin soothing ingredients. -Includes sodium hyaluronate and antioxidant rich plants. -Fragranced and packaged in a jar which can compromise the ingredients. GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask -Spreads easily and absorbs quickly which leaves skin hydrated. -Includes four forms of avocado which contains fatty acids and antioxidants. -Contains fragrance and is packaged in a jar which can put the ingredients at risk. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer -Lightweight, gel-like texture which is perfect for combination to oily skin. -Contains fragrance. -It also contains two kinds of antioxidant rich watermelon extracts. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask -Mask has very moisturizing and soothing ingredients. -It’s easy to use and isn’t overly saturated -Contains fragrance which can be irritating GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist -Fog-like mist settles lightly while refreshing both skin and makeup. -Includes hyaluronic acid and soothing extracts. -Contains fragrance. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Lip Pop -Adds a sheer pink color that can be built up for more pop. -The balm doesn’t offer long lasting hydration compared to the best formulas of today. -Contains potentially irritating fragrance which can worsen dry lips. -Doesn’t exfoliate as well as claimed GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm -Lightweight cream that contains extracts rich with antioxidants. -Effectively removes makeup, dirt, oil, and spf. -Fragranced which can be irritating. Conclusion: This brand has too many products that have fragrance which can be very irritating to the skin. There are products with other issues such as packaging that can put the ingredients at risk and cause hygiene issues. Although I wouldn’t recommend this brand, the oil free moisturizer is actually pretty good.

Rosacea/Sensitive skin routine!
This is my new routine for the fall. I recently found out I have rosacea and hormonal acne so I have been experimenting with what products would best suit my skin. For reference: the hormonal birth control pill is what has cleared up my skin dramatically, and I cannot attribute my routine to clearing it up. But my routine is keeping my skin’s moisture barrier soft, healthy and glowing. I will add a brief overview of my routine and why it’s working so well for me! HERBIVORE - Pink Cloud Rosewater + Tremella Creamy Jelly Cleanser This cleanser is everything.... it’s low foaming, soft and gentle and effectively melts off any and all makeup and sunscreen. It’s non stripping, the only smell to it is very natural and not strong at all, and it’s also very hydrating. Tremella mushroom provides more hydration than regular Hyaluronic acid, and plant based squalane emulsifies all of the makeup and dirt on the skin to gently yet effectively whisk it away. When you rinse, your skin feels so comfortable and never tight/dry. My tried and true CeraVe hydrating cleanser started burning my skin so this cleanser has been a game changer for me! evian - Brumisateur Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray I made a post about this mist. I find that the water in NYC can be a little hard so using this resets my skin’s pH balance and makes for a very soothing product in my routine. I follow with moisturizer after using this lovely fine mist. Kiehl's - Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer This is such a lovely, simple cream. It has squalane, glycerin, apricot, avocado, olive and rice bran oils, and glacial glycoprotein. This moisturizer is thick enough to help the skin retain moisture and stay soft and supple without being heavy. I love this and I think it’s perfect for the fall to keep combination/normal/oily skin in check! DRUNK ELEPHANT - F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask Such a lovely product from drunk elephant! This is a multi use moisturizer/mask. It’s a leave on treatment chock full of hydrating and nourishing ingredients like electrolytes, vitamin F beads (they melt when you massage it in), a large dose of Niacinamide and squalane. This product is so lightweight yet moisturizing and really locks in hydration. I use this on top of my moisturizer night and day for glowy and happy skin! SUNDAY RILEY - Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream One of the only eye creams I actually like! There is a slightly botanical smell to it, but it doesn’t linger. This cream is very moisturizing, illuminating and instantly brightening/depuffing. When I use it I don’t have to use much concealer for my dark undereyes! GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask A very gentle retinol eye cream. No peeling/irritation. I find this helps to smooth texture and helps milia too! Not very clinical but still a nice product.

New AM & PM routines!
This is a major update to my previous routine post from a few months ago! I’ve been wanting to switch to primarily using one brand, and I just LOVE Sunday Riley. One of my favorite things is that all of her products are designed to work together — so minimal fear of negative interactions! And, if you check out my before/after post from a few weeks ago, you’ll see why I’ll be a longtime SR user!

First of all, I am obsessed with anything that is watermelon. So I was hyped when I saw this at Sephora and so right then I got my hands on it. Packaging is simple, yet cute. The product glides on the skin very nicely . When I wake up, my skin feels smooth. You should follow your skincare routine, and then apply this as a mask.
