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. 

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!

Mask Hacks - Here are a few to get started thanks to our lovely BIC-ers, a big thank you for these fabulous ideas!

Trim off long chin and add to forehead for sheet masks


Squeeze tube lip balms (like Bite) into pans and place in magnetic palette


Layer lip sleeping mask (such as Laneige) over regular balm


Derma plane prior to a peel-off mask to ease the pain of removal


Warm water helps remove clay masks quicker than cold


Lay sheet masks flat prior to use so the serum is more evenly distributed 


Remove clay/difficult masks in the shower to keep towel clean and removal easy


Use an HA serum prior to trying a mask with alcohol high on the ingredients list


Use a Makeup Eraser to remove wash-off masks


With a detox mask, apply a thicker layer where pores are


Use a resurfacing exfoliating spray (such as Kate Somerville’s Liquid ExfoliKate) before a detox mask to better clear out your pores


Re-use a large sample jar for a blank sheet mask pellet and fill it with essence/toner


Use a nail clippers to trip a mask if scissors are not on hand

RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Always have ❤️ in my heart for a zero-tack mask, @lmaster! I don’t think I’ve tried this one, the fit on the masks in this line were a little wonky for me🤷🏻‍♀️

yeah that philtrum area is huge!! @eshoe my fit was prett...

yeah that philtrum area is huge!! @eshoe my fit was pretty good, just a bit of extra material that needed squishing 😆

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Sounds like this one a winner for your skin, @lmaster!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

It does have a pretty wide philtrum area, @quspork kinda forgot about that, some might have to snip quite a bit, however, it didn't bother me and hydration from this mask was excellent

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Woohoo! 🙌🏼 We’re avocado masking twins @lmaster! 🥑👯‍♀️

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

We sure have been on the same brain wave recently @itsfi 🥑🍉 🙌

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Love it @lmaster! 💗 BDE76ECA-4FE4-4155-96E8-D470E274A05B.gif


Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

You nailed it! @itsfi 🤗🙌💖

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Actually on theme for P week! Peaches & Cream fusion



The fusion line from Creme Shop is consistently great and I’ve never tried a flavor I didn’t like. This one is the same! Great, moisturizing, simple. Not much smell, normal thin cotton material, and eye flaps (!!!) which are my favorite for sleepy time masking. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@scott1201  I'd definitely agree, the Fusion Line from The Creme Shop has been my most favorite! This is a great one and I'm happy to hear you like it too! 🍑😃

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@scott1201  I agree with you and the others, the fusion masks are great and haven't come across one I didn't like.  Glad you enjoyed this Smiley Happy

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

@scott1201 the eye flaps on these, ah yes. Besides that, the fusion line is one of their best I think. Besides the holiday ones, anyway.

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

Makes me wonder what has happened to all the other eye flaps that get cut out of sheet masks. It's like donut holes, only sheet mask eye holes  @eshoe 

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

That's such a good point @scott1201! They should use them as slice masks!

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

🤔 now that’s a question I will be pondering for the rest of the night, and then some @scott1201. They need to be repackaged as mask slices for a 2 step mask.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Glad you enjoyed this one, @scott1201!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I agree @scott1201, the masks in the fusion line from The Creme Shop are so good! 🤩 

@scott1201 sounds excellent for a sleepy time mask!

P is for Peripera


This Peripera Smoothie Time Avocado Mask (Nourishing) is amazing! I’ve had my eye on these Peripera sheet masks (both the smoothie and juice lines) ever since @Shosh85 first introduced them to the masking thread. Shosh generously sent me this avocado mask earlier in the year and I thought the last day of "P" as the letter of the week would be a great time to give it a go. This is a very thin cotton mask oozing in a rich but not heavy milky cream serum. I find that this type of serum are wonderful for dry skin, cold nights, post-flight or whenever skin has faced the elements. The scent on this is pleasant; I can’t quite describe it, but it does not remind me of avocado. It has a fresh, maybe subtly floral-ish, scent that fades away quickly. I kept the mask on for about 30 minutes, and the results after removing it were spectacular. My skin felt soft, plump, and moisturized; zero tackiness. These results lasted throughout the night, and this morning, my skin looked and felt soft, moisturized and nourished, and there was a nice bounce to it as well. Thank you for sending this over my way Shosh! Smiley Happy Loved this mask; of all the avocado sheet mask that I’ve tried so far, this one is probably my favorite. <333


Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi  I am so happy you loved this one! 😊 I've really been enjoying all these Peripera masks! 😃🥑

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I completely understand why you enjoy these Peripera masks @Shosh85! 😍 They’re amazing! 💚 A thousand thank you’s for sending this one my way! 🥰
