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!

@cianni  Ooooh, this sounds amazing! I'm willing to experience a little pain if it brings great results! So happy this worked out so well! πŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ

2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

O is for Oxygen pixi O 2 I used this exactly how it says to, I honestly thought I liked the Pacifica mask better, but now I think I like them both equally 🀦 this one contains lactic acid, and has a much shorter wear time, my skin did feel a little bit softer with this one. the scent on the Pacifica was better, this pixi had more of an earthy scent. my skin felt nicely clarified with this one as well. Both of these will stay in the collection, next to use bliss the final oxygen mask to see if I equally like them all πŸ˜‚

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

With an earthy scent @lmaster this one sounds like one to try. @Shosh85 may be on to something - ginseng always seems to produce a scent like the one you are describing. Thank you for the comparison as well. I pick up a lot of Pacifica stuff for my daughter but I try it out too. I like most of it, some stuff causes her to break out though.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster I wonder if the earthy scent you're picking up is from the ginseng? πŸ€” Happy to hear you loved this one just as equally! They both definitely sound wonderful! πŸ˜ƒ I'll be interested to hear how the Bliss ranks with them!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

You may very well be right @Shosh85 didn't even think of that πŸ˜†

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Both of these are overnight masks. I alternated using these every other night this week and I'm partial to the Origins - it's very nicely moisturizing for my skin. I'm still not seeing any firming effects from the Kiehl's overnight but my husband, however, is a fan - he likes the cooling feel and that his skin feels smooth and a bit tighter. He's not a huge fan of the scent but said at the same time that it's not horrible and he could live with it. I'm glad he's being so accommodating of the scent now that it seems he has commandeered this mask for his own. lol.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missy415, completely agree with your thoughts on both masks! I used the Origins last week and my skin was very happy.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

The origins one is really nice, isn't it @itsfi. I've been fairly pleased with the masks I've tried from Origins and Kiehl's.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missy415 100% in agreement with you on the Origins! And I'm thinking my husband might enjoy the Kiehl's, if only I could get him to try it Smiley Very Happy

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

You should definitely try to see if your husband will give masking a try @eshoe. Mine surprised me that he's keeping up with it. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missy415  The Origins mask is seriously one of my most favorites! 
Good to know your husband likes the Kiehls mask! I'm impressed he masks at all!πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

He's been on this masking kick for a couple of months now @Shosh85. I keep wondering if it's a passing phase or if he's going to be my forever masking bestie. LOL. 

the origins drink up is one I've not tried yet @missy415...

the origins drink up is one I've not tried yet @missy415 good to see reviews from the hubs too πŸ˜‰

Re: the origins drink up is one I've not tried yet @missy415...

It's so creamy @lmaster. I have a feeling I'll be using it a lot this winter.

O is for Oolong Tea6D4BDD16-E62F-404A-B120-9F6762357C14.jpeg


Cosmetea T1 Hydrating Tea Ampoule Mask

This is a super thin and transparent cotton sheet mask that was drenched with a floral scented serum. The eye holes on the mask were too big, but because the material was so thin, smooshing them down smaller was easy and made the rest of the mask fit perfect. The mask adherence very well and was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. When I removed it, the serum leftover was a little tacky but it all absorbed in about 5 minutes. My face felt soft and smooth and very comfortably hydrated.

This was a decent hydration mask, but I wouldn't say it was anything special and I didn't love the scent. I'd use again but wouldn't repurchase.AE4E4903-1C6C-4D8D-8A17-3CC1D4A58915.jpeg


Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I haven’t seen this Cosmetea line before - do you know if it’s a different line from the other Cosmetea sheet masks or the same mask but just repackaged? Oolong tea sounded interesting @Shosh85, but I’m not sure about the floral scent on this one. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi  I'm pretty sure it's a whole different line. πŸ€” I definitely wasn't crazy about the floral scent and think that's what made the mask just ok to me. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Interesting to hear about other Cosmetea masks, @Shosh85. From the packaging, I expected much better results. Goes to show it's what it on the inside that counts Smiley Happy 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

That's absolutely right, @eshoe πŸ˜‰ I liked this one, but the packaging definitely made me expect a little more than what I got πŸ˜ƒ

@Shosh85 I know I've used this one in the past...I think...

@Shosh85 I know I've used this one in the past...I think 🀦 good to know your thoughts, so I don't have to run and use it πŸ˜‚
