2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Hello lovely masking mavens! We have finally outgrown the original thread started by the wonderful @Aaliaa and are beginning another masking journey. Many, many thanks to her and excited you are here. Posting/original thread: 

Posting: Each week features a different theme, as well as a letter of the alphabet for coming up with new masking ideas. Feel free to post as frequently or infrequently as you would like, with or without following the challenge; they are guidelines and just something we do for fun. We love hearing about every masking experience, and suggestions are always welcomed!

Please include the brand and name of the mask you are trying out, as well as a photo if possible. Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase. Don't forget to include a grade (thanks to @ShortErica for the idea) to help others along the way.

Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

omg I'm really freaking out a little bit,,, so last night I decided to try another foot peel mask... says to leave on for an hour..ummmmmmm well probably should of not put them on at 930 pm and probably shouldn't of fell asleep until 5 am 🤦 well,,, needless to say the peeling that's supposed to start in 3-4 days yep it's already started.... has anyone left these on for this long before?

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Wow @lmaster !  Did the serum leak at all?  Fingers crossed it doesn't peel too much skin off!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ahhhhh @lmaster . I have never left one on much longer than the instructions state, but maybe I should. I have never actually had a foot peel successfully peel my feet, which is so disappointing. I don’t get it! I literally get no peeling whatsoever. 


Anyhow, I hope your feet don’t peel too much! 

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I have had very mild peeling in the past @PrettyPaint but I also didn't know that you should soak your feet for ten minutes each day for better results. I will say my feet are peeling already, and the calluses are peeling, and that's what I've been trying to get to peel with the past 3 masks I've tried

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  I didn’t know about the soaking the first time I tried a foot mask, but I did do a daily soak this latest time and used the boscia peel. Still nothing! Smiley Sad My heels have really bad calluses, though, so maybe that’s why. I haven’t seen the brand you used, so maybe I’ll try that one next. 

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@PrettyPaint from what I'm seeing, the longer you keep them on the better the results. 🤦 I swear I can't believe I had them on for 7.5 hours 

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

It sure sounds like it @lmaster . Please do keep us updated, and I truly hope they don’t get painful or anything! Hopefully you will be callus free soon! 

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Will do 👍 @PrettyPaint 

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster Oh man! That's a long time to have all that alcohol on your feet! I think the longest I've had one on for was 2.5 hours. It might me a good idea to moisturize. I think you'll definitely have some soft feet! Keep us posted!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 they are peeling already on my bottom left side and my calluses are peeling, and that's what I've been wanting to peel 😆 I just can't believe I fell asleep!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh no @lmaster😬 The longest I’ve left them on is 2 hours. Hopefully it will be ok🤞

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

They are so dried out @faeriegirl  uughhhh well...I guess that's what I get for wanting peeling feet 🤦

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!


You are going to have some seriously soft feet @lmaster  Smiley Very Happy

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe right now they look pretty darn dried out 😂😆 oh my 🤦

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

For L week last night I used Sephora Collection Lychee sheet mask and Laniege eye sleeping mask.


The sheet mask is an A it is one of my favorites. The eye mask is just a B. I’ve had this DS for awhile and I don’t think I would buy a full size.

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I don't know why, but I keep forgetting about my Sephora Collection masks!  I just went to look and I do have an L one!  Thanks for the reminder @faeriegirl !

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I hope you like it @missjeanie! I love the Sephora Collection masks❤️

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I think anytime a DS sits around for awhile, it’s a clear sign of ‘meh’ @faeriegirl 😂

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yep @eshoe 😂 It wasn’t bad it’s just not as good as the regular ones I use😊

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Glad to hear the Lychee worked out well for you, @faeriegirl! I haven't tried that one yet, so I'll have to put it on the list. Sephora definitely makes some nice sheet masks.
