To Post:
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 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe  Haha - at "I see lots of O's." I've been having trouble finding much for the O theme this week other than the oozoo bear masks and I think I posted about those before. Anyhow, I'm so glad to have found the new thread! I liked the collagen lookatme results, but I think I remember the fit was really strange on me for some reason. It's always so interesting to hear how masks fit various people in different ways. 

RE: Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Aghhhh I am so sorry I did not tag you!! I was having such a difficult time scanning the old thread, I went through a few pages and tagged names and then started having issues tagging πŸ™„ I am so glad you found it too!!! Thank you for being so persistent πŸ˜„ If you have any ideas for challenge weeks next year, let me know, too.

2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I'm going with O for Oil again with this Pacifica pineapple bubbles clarifying mask... love how it says slay oil and dirt πŸ˜† I've used this mask a couple times before, but my sinuses must have been acting up because, I could definitely smell the pineapple this go round! and it smelled amazing!! it is pinkish color, I'm assuming that's from the clay, you pump it into your hands and smooth it all over your entire face,, then it starts to bubble. it was tingling πŸ™Œ not a hurting type tho, more like a tickle. I left it on for 20 minutes, and wiped it off with my wet makeup eraser, and it came off very nicely. it says you can also tissue it off instead of rinsing,,idk if I'll ever do it that way. my skin initially was so so soft while it was wet, after my skin dried, it really felt clean and clarified, 100% i will continue to use this one, and probably repurchase after I'm out. it gets an A

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I’m happy to hear this gets an A from you @lmaster, but I have to confess that my first thought was β€œdoes it smell like pineapple?” Nice that you were able to pick up a pineapple scent! 🍍 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi I think it's more of artificial pineapple,, like those pineapple life savers,, that's what it reminded me of

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

This one sounds great @lmaster!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

If you have acne or need a good cleansing, this one works well @faeriegirl 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  Oooh, I like how this one sounds! Happy to hear you enjoyed it! I'll definitely have to try this one out! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘

@Shosh85 this one might be my favorite compared to the bliss and pick version

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

This looks super nice @lmaster. For some reason this particular mask was completely off my radar, so I'll have to look out for it. The smell sounds lovely - I always enjoy pacifica scents.

Pacifica has really impressed me with their price points and results, it's definitely one to keep an eye out for @PrettyPaint

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh this sounds like the belif foaming pore cleanser I love, @lmaster! Will have to try this one for sure.

@eshoe I think I might like this one better than the bliss and pixi ones I've picked up

Sounds like this one worked out well for you, @lmaster. It's great that the scent was nice and pineapple-y!

@quspork if you are sensitive to scents, this one would probably not be one to choose, but if not, you will most definitely enjoy it

O for oil- the Leader's White Truffle Oil Aquablend Oil Pocket Mask

 

IMG_20191008_113107.jpgIMG_20191008_113113.jpg

 

I love Leaders, but this one was a toughy for me. This is a pocket mask so you're supposed to fold and squish the package to pop the serum into the section with the mask. Or so I gathered from the instructions. But that part didn't work so well for me. Leader's mask package: 1, quspork: 0 

 

I ended up just putting on the mask and then cutting open the top portion and rubbing the special serum (since there was already serum on the mask) on top of the mask. Positives? There was no offensive odor (not really much of a scent at all), no tackiness after removal, fit was ok, and my skin did look pretty radiant and felt nice after removal. The only negative is the packaging and the fact that is was too darn hard to get the seal between to two sections to break. That left the mask a touch drier than it should have been I think. I will, however, own that this might have been user error, LOL. So in the end, I would use this again, but wouldn't necessarily run out to buy it. I'd give it a B. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Sorry to hear this one didn’t work out so well for you @quspork. It’s one of the oil masks my skin likes a lot but I completely understand how interactive masks like this one can make it really difficult to use. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@quspork  It's too bad you had a hard time with these! I've tried this and moisturizing one and really liked them both πŸ˜‰ Popping them can be challenging! It seem similar to the Oozoo Bear masks - sometimes I can get right it right away and sometimes I have to really fight with it. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@quspork  Ok, so reading about this mask made me hungry I'll admit. Smiley Happy I don't know how I feel about masks where you pop the package to squeeze the serum into the mask portion. I'm assuming this might be similar to the oozoo bear ones (and the last time I used this one, the ear didn't have any serum in it so I think I accidentally must have popped it while storing it or something). Not sure if it's gimmick or whether the mixing serves a purpose, though I could just be naive about it. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Seems like I've tried this mask @quspork and I'm about 99.9% sure I didn't do it right based on your experience. Sounds like I didn't miss out too much, though :/ Bummer!

I know white truffle oil sounds delicious πŸ˜‚ @quspork sorry you had such a hard time
