2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Hello lovely masking mavens! We have outgrown the original thread started by the wonderful @Aaliaa and are beginning another masking journey. Many thanks to her and excited you are here. *Half-year update will be posted at the end of the month* To post:

Spoiler
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, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), 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!

Mask Demographics Survey Results: @ShortErica wanted to know a little bit about our group. I noticed a major flaw in that I didn't include US: West as a region although it was listed on the map. My apologies to all of the lovely maskers in the West! I will re-run this survey again soon so that this group can be represented correctly.

Re: @Shosh85 that's great it stayed put for so long, I can't...

I didn't know Mediheal had foil masks @Shosh85. I'm such a masking novice!

Re: @Shosh85 that's great it stayed put for so long, I can't...

@lmaster I know what you mean! The ones I've tried have been pretty stiff😕

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Love the tin man look! Glad it worked good for you too

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

@CC3616 Thanks! It's always nice when a mask is fun to wear and gives great results too! Plus, I just really like the Tin Man, so it worked out well😂

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 You absolutely nailed it!  I think the fun tin man look only adds to the wonderful benefits of the mask!  Glad you loved it!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie Thanks!! Haha! This definitely was a fun one! 🤗

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yep you sure did, @Shosh85! Ok now I really need to get on it and order some of those masks. I don't care for tacky but it sounds like the moisturizer will tackle that Smiley Wink Thanks for the great photo as always!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe These have been great so far! Moisturizer would probably be a good idea👍 When trying a mask for the first time, I like to leave my face alone, and really see what it does. When I use this again, I'll definitely put on some moisturizer to get rid of the tackiness 😉

Can't be the Tin Man and not take a picture!😂

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I love how this mask looks on! Because of your review and how it looks, I am adding this to my purchase list!

 

Best,
Rebecca 

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

@RebeccaBT  Awesome!! This is the second one from this line I've tried and have loved them both! From what I hear they're all pretty good! I hope you like it as much as I did! The silver foil definitely adds to the fun😉🤗

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

ooh great to hear I needed to use this one @Shosh85  ! It's so nice we all sub to facetory so you always know what to expect haha

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888 Was this in the Facetory box? I'm actually not a subscriber, but have seriously thought about it! I have soo many masks as it is, getting masks monthly is just asking for trouble! Haha! 😂

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 it was! Funny coincidence then!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

I stumbled onto a great resource for all of you who are interested in ingredients - EWG(dot)org /skindeep. It’s a database of ingredients and products that scores ingredients on a variety of factors such as allergic potential, toxicity and restrictions on when it can be used etc. What I found most helpful is that it will give you the used, plus a bunch of synonyms for each ingredient, because sometimes a not-so-nice ingredient is labellled under something else that is harder to detect!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

@cianni Awesome! Thanks for sharing! 👍

@cianni that's great info ☺️ thank you!!

@cianni that's great info ☺️ thank you!!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

Awesome! Thanks for starting a new thread, @eshoe!

2019 Mask of the Week Challenge

started the lovely day with these masks. has anyone tried the panda eye masks??? ok A++++ my crows feet are gone, seriously gone! I still have some slight puffiness under the eye but that's ok bc it doesn't say it helps with that concern.the corner of my eyes, no lines! I will be buying these babies asap. next I used the frienvita mask, this is also another one in already scoping out to purchase more. the serum was very silky and I love that. fit was nice, stayed in place great. left it on for 25 min and I most definitely felt the tighteningsensation in my skin. there was quite a bit of leftover serum that I pat into place. scent was not bad either. this mask performed excellent for me A+++

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge
