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!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Then maybe 2nd time will be the charm and the mask will at least be okay instead of meh next time @missjeanie. Smiley Happy

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie  I've tried the Sand and Sky before, I actually think I still have some of my sample, and I enjoy it too. Definitely makes my skin feel soft. I didn't see that Holika Holika mask at TJ Maxx when I went but I did find the strawberry one like this. So, if I see this one, I may have to pick it up. Sounds like it  did pretty well for ya.

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

The strawberry is the one that I tried when I was in a bad mood @GalPalVal17 !  I need to revisit that one in a better frame of mind!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

The Holika Holika definitely sounds like a nice one, @missjeanie. They have some great products- I'll have to add this line of masks to my list to try!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I've been pretty impressed with the brand @quspork !  I've tried a few serums as well and quite liked them!

I'd love to try this green tea mask @missjeanie I don't t...

I'd love to try this green tea mask @missjeanie I don't think tj Maxx had them the last time I was there

Shoot me your address anytime @lmaster and I can toss a mask your way!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Last Thursday night masking theme was Cannabis Sativa oil ( hemp ). Funny, I thought that the ORIGINS - Hello, Calm Relaxing & Hydrating Face Mask with Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil 

was an overnight mask until I read the directions on the back of the tube that @itsfi gifted me with ( Thanks Fi, you’re so generous my wonderful friend 🤗 ! ). When I received a sample tube of this mask, I used it as directed ( leave on for 10 minutes then wipe off the excess ) and I thought ( and still think ) that removing the excess was wasting of a great mask. So now I apply a medium thick layer and massage it in my skin until the green color disappears. For an extra dose of moisture I added 2 drops of the Essencia Hemp Oil to the Hello Calm mask and went to bed after moisturizing my lips with the MILK MAKEUP - KUSH Lip Balm - Green Dragon. 

The Hello Calm mask always delivers great results in terms of moisture and nourishment for my dry/very dry skin.

Sorry I didn’t have time to mask last Friday. I woke up very late ( around dinner time ), had many boring chores to do and still felt tired so I went to bed early in the evening. I didn’t even think about using an overnight mask that day! It would have been so simple to use one, as if I didn’t have any to choose from 🙄🙄🙄 ! ...C31261F5-1483-46C3-9F1C-09B9D60CDA03.jpeg

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Nice theme and great products @keana1! Smiley Happy I will have to try the Hello, Calm as an overnight mask!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @itsfi ! If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have the Hello Calm mask to use ! Thanks for the lovely PM you sent me, it means the World to me! 😘 

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh nice @keana1 ! I'm a big fan of Hello Calm. I also put on a thin layer and massage until my face has just a light green tint and it still leaves the face soft and smooth after the 10 minutes and washing it off.

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Great @Weetart ! I’m glad that you enjoy it as well! It’s such a great mask, I usually leave it on overnight for extra moisture. 😉

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@keana1 have you tried the hemp one from the Sephora collection? I haven't just totally curious about it.

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

No @Weetart I haven’t tried it, I think it became available in Canada very recently ( I checked a few days ago and the hemp mask wasn’t on the Sephora Canada app ). I think that it’s geared towards people that have oily skin and/or blemishes. I’m in the dry skin spectrum. The Hello Calm mask isn’t even available in Canada so my dear friend @itsfi sent me a tube via Unicorn Mail.

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ahh Canada. I see @keana1 😀 that actually is why I am curious about it. The description  lists dryness among the skincare concerns that it addresses on the description so I am curious how hydrating it really is. Maybe I’ll just pull the trigger... once I get through a pile of samples I promised myself to finish before more wash offs .

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I also have to finish some DS masks and foils before buying new ones @Weetart ! I have so many and only 1 face ! 😜

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Great masking theme @keana1! All of them sound fantastic!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @faeriegirl ! 😉 Everything I used is very moisturizing for my eternally dry skin ! 

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

This sounds like a great set of products to use in conjunction with one another, @keana1!

Re: 2019 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @quspork ! Great for dry skin! 

excellent theme @keana1 😉

excellent theme @keana1 😉
