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!

If this Peripera mask is an indicator, they’re great for the skin! πŸ’—πŸ’• The sensory treat is a nice extra. @eshoe 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Now that's a glowing review! Sounds like this one is worth checking out, @itsfi!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Definitely worth checking out @quspork! It feels like the entire smoothie line and the juice line would be worth it. πŸ˜†

looks like avacado is there real theme this week πŸ˜† @itsf...

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Trying to get back into a bit of a masking routine after being so spastic with my skin care!

Monday - I Dew Care: Pure to the Pore, Cleansing Volcanic Ash Clay Mask - I used this one because I wanted to empty the container.  I figured there are no volcanos that I know of in Canada, so it was likely from a far away place.  I don't mind this clay mask, I'd use it again, but it's not so great that I'd re-purchase, there are too many other masks to try out there. I did this mask pre shower and rinsed off in shower for easy cleaning.  

I followed that evening with the Pacifica Sea Algae Anti Pollution Gel Mask.  This mask is an easy one that I can toss on for 5, 10, 60 minutes and then rinse off.  It's very forgiving on the timelines which is something that I'm horrible at, so it's a win in that department.  It's a very gentle mask and my face feels a bit softer after, so again, I'll keep using it, but likely wouldn't re-purchase, simply due to how many masks I have and still want to buy.  I'm also kinda skeptical about the anti pollution claims. 

Tuesday evening I gave the PTR Firmx Peeling Gel another go.  It's another one that I'm skeptical about, how much of my 'dead skin' is rolling off, and how much is just the product balling up?  Either way, my skin was again markedly softer after using, so I'm going to keep using it and see if I get a better feel for the product and my opinion on it.

Wednesday I went for the PTR Rose Stem Cell mask.  I've used this as a mask a few times, but tend to prefer it as a sleeping mask, I think it just has more time to sink in all the good stuff this way.  I went for a good 45 minutes on this mask and then set it on my bed side table to use as a sleeping mask this week.  

Thursday was the Peach Slices Mango Peace Popsicle sheet mask from @eshoe in this months unicorn mail.  I've seen these masks pop up on here a few times and was more than excited to give it a shot.  It had a super light mango ish scent to it, was easy to apply with only snips around my eyes (standard for me with 95% of the sheet masks I use).  I had it on for a good 35 minutes and could have gone a bit longer.  The extra serum in the packet went onto my legs and elbows!  I went straight to bed so I didn't get a good look at my skin, but there was minimal tackiness and my skin looked good the next morning!  I'd use this one again!

Friday & Saturday were working days that only got a sleeping mask.  The Origins Drink UP Intensive claims to have Swiss Glacier water.  I'll call that a far away place.  I use this as a sleeping max on the nights I wasn't using the PTR Rose mask.  I feel like it has an iced tea scent to it that I love.  This is an easy mask to use overnight.  I'd buy it again.  No reactions, and moisturized skin in the am.  Exactly what I want a sleeping mask to do.

Sunday- I used the Summer Fridays Overtime mask after seeing eshoe use the R&R and figuring that the pumpkin scent qualified as a P mask.  I like that I got a good exfoliation in with this one, I enjoy the scrubbiness of it.  The scent is a huge win for me as well.  I'm going to pick up the trio for the holidays even though I already have the Overtime in a full size.  This is one of my favourite masks.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie I'm ready for duel week and plan to compare the PTR with the Holika Holika egg - I'll let you know how it goes!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Just picked up an egg @ShortErica ! Great duel idea!

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

Wow @missjeanie one thing I admire about you is that when you dive in, you make it count! I have so many deleted pictures of masking sessions at this pointπŸ˜† Thank you for sharing all of your thoughts on these, I like Pacifica and @lmaster has already convinced me to pick up another mask of theirs. On another note, happy to β€˜see’ you around againπŸ€—

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

lol... I'm sure trying to get back into it @eshoe !  I need to delete so many from my camera role on my phone.  

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

Time for a fresh start, eh @missjeanie πŸ˜‰

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie  Nice job gettin' back into the swing of things! Looks like a lot of great masks! The Origins Drink Up and the Overtime mask are two of my most favorites! Happy to hear you liked them too! πŸ˜ƒ

Also, I'm jealous you picked up a mango scent from the Peach Slices mask - I sniffed and sniffed and only got a fresh and clean kind of smell - maybe I got dud πŸ€” Glad yours turned out a little better than mine πŸ₯­πŸ˜‰

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

The scent on the Drink Up is a winner in my eyes @Shosh85 !  And the Summer Friday's is a new go to.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

This looks like a nice selection of masks to help ease back into the ol' masking routine, @missjeanie. I just picked up that Summer Fridays set and can't wait to try out the Overtime one! 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh I'll be looking to grab that trio too @quspork , such a nice mask I assume I'll love them all!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Nice maskng @missjeanie 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @emaisgr8 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!
