2019 Mask of the Week Main Thread & Misc. Info:

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!

Most of the Weird and unusual ingredients aren’t a choice for me due to religious reasons so I’m throwing g in again something not in accordance with the week’s theme.

Too cool for school egg cream mask. It was used to be sold at Sephora but not anymore. Other day I saw them at Walmart and nostalgia made me pick some. I had forgotten how much I was used to enjoy it

Egg Cream masks are hands down my favourite sheet masks. Sheet is a thick soft cotton with a hard mesh removable lining and serum is a thick cream which I prefer over the usual watery serums in most sheet masks. Fit is actually pretty decent other than eyes holes that are a bit small but it gives me a chance to close my eyes and relax so I don’t mind much. There is plenty of extra serum in pouch to apply over neck and arms ( and in my case to my baby’s pretty face who was insistent to wear mask with me 🤣) Removing after 20-25 minutes my face has plenty of serum that easily absorbed in after massaging for a while. It leaves skin super soft and very well hydrated and I don’t feel the need to apply any more layers of skincare on top.
In short this mask is a winner



Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Walmart you say @fatimamummy !!  I'll have to keep an eye out.  I've tried their mask in the blue packet that looks like this one, and I quite liked it.  I'll have to check out Walmart next time I'm there to try the yellow!  Very pretty flat lay too!  Im always jealous of everyones ability to do pretty photos.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Wow this one always surprises me when it’s a favorite, @fatimamummy - plenty of love for it but I couldn’t get over the stringiness 🤷🏻‍♀️ Glad you found some though!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Love your photo @fatimamummy! 😍 This is a good mask; I was bummed when Sephora stopped carrying it. 😔 I do see it stocked at the Target near me.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Sunday evening I went with the Forgotten Wonder category. I purchased a 5 pack of Frudia Blueberry Hydrating mask awhile back and had never gotten around to using it. This was a slight yellow mask that had a natural scent to me. I paired it with the Huckleberry lip balm that the sweet @shoe gifted me.

The mask had a fabulous fit. There was very little  tackiness and my face felt nicely hydrated afterwards. 5 stars. 



Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

omg that flavor if lip balm sounds awesome @emaisgr8 and always amazing to rediscover a mask you love!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

It really does smel amazing @Kim888 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@emaisgr8  That Huckleberry lip balm is sooo good isn't it? It's one that I have to make sure to hide from my 5 year old 😂

Happy to hear you you enjoyed the Frudia mask! This is my favorite out of the four! 👍

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85  I absolutely love that balm. It smells so yummy.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I've been using this one lately as well. It's nice for the skin! @emaisgr8 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Great to hear your skin liked this mask @emaisgr8. 😃 It’s well liked by many on this thread. 💕

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Well you reminded me of another balm I need to get crack in’ on, @emaisgr8! These forgotten mask weeks are so helpfulSmiley Happy

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@emaisgr8  I've been using that lip balm that @eshoe gifted me as well. I love the scent of it. I'm almost out now Smiley Happy  The Frudia masks sounds great. I've tried a different "flavor" from this Frudia line and similar results. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@GalPalVal17  I think it's one of my favorite scents for a balm.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I would be lying if I said I was excited for tonight’s masking. I think this beats out horse oil, now I can add donkey oil to my list. Many thanks to @quspork for making my gross-masking dreams come true!E444C7EA-30E2-4417-AE0B-EB00114EA1A7.jpegBite, Elizavecca & Volition


I started out with VOLITION BEAUTY - Turmeric Brightening Polish I especially like this for my t-zone area, while using a hydrating mask on my cheeks to avoid the cracked skin like I experienced last summer. I applied a generous amount of the BITE BEAUTY - Agave Lip Mask - Maple which I also need to use more now that it’s nearing winter. This was from a set last year, time to finish!


Next up, the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Silky Creamy Donkeysteam Cream Mask Pack from quspork. I didn’t think a mask could make my stomach turn more than than the Mediheal horse oil one I tried for the first gross challenge. I was wrong!


Donkey oil is far enough down on the list, at only 100ppm, which...gave me some relief, maybe? The remainder of the ingredients are pretty standard; cetearyl alcohol, grape seed oil, shea butter, even sodium hyaluronate. Fragrance is listed toward the end, but I couldn’t detect anything artificial-it was more like an oil-scent.


The mask itself was covered in a very thick (lotion-like) serum. More than once I had to brace myself. I love masks like this, but I couldn’t stop thinking about the name. Only 100ppm, I can do this😂 It fit beautifully of course, as was adherence. There was plenty of extra serum in the packet for me to apply, which I did on my cheeks and forehead. I checked the recommended time, 15-20 minutes, so I set the clock for 15. No need to go all crazy here.


While wearing it I noticed a bit of itching and uncomfortableness. I didn’t want to be a wimp, so I left it on and removed the mask promptly once the timer went off. I rinsed it off immediately, so I don’t have a report on the tackiness, HOWEVER. My skin was so, so smooth. Yes, probably the smoothest I’ve experienced from a sheet mask. I would love to know how soft a Babyfacial-Donkeysteam combo would leave my skin but I’m not up for that challenge! This mask was an A+ but not one I would purchase. For the more adventurous, this is a must try!





Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe I was waiting to see you try this lol. Yuck. I actually just got done googling it and it is really disturbing. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yeah I’m not gonna google it @Samtian I really don’t even want to know😆

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe  You are braver than me. Glad the grossness atleast gave you some wonderful results!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Great point, @emaisgr8 - no major reactions and baby-soft skin helped alleviate the ick-factor!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe  I've wanted to try this one because of all the positive reviews I've read about it! Good for you for trying something out of your comfort zone! Sometimes just the title of a mask can be a real deterrent! 😂
