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!

cianni

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

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

itsfi/BIC

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

keana1

Use a Makeup Eraser to remove wash-off masks

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

@Weetart  This looks really great, especially if it's both refreshing and hydrating. And I can see from the opening that there definitely looks to be a lot of extra serum in there. 

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

Oh definitely, I was able to keep squeezing more and more out. Bit sad it was my last one, I had a couple packs of these @PrettyPaint

2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

S is for Share it mask from tonymoly originally I wasn't too thrilled with these little holiday masks, I know one version was extremely tacky, and I assumed the rest would be similar. decided to go ahead and try it out again, preferences do change overtime,, at least mine have, one day I might love one, the next month, I might not ๐Ÿคท this one is the typical medium thickness, fit was decent but the material didn't feel super saturated, luckily it stayed on pretty good. I'm wondering now, if time has anything to do with the sheet not feeling as saturated, not sure, but it's another assumption.. this mask has a white thin watery serum, but there was not much left in the package. scent, was very nice too. left it on for 20 minutes, and my skin felt nourished, and moisturized nicely! a bit bouncy too, and I didn't notice any lasting tackiness ๐Ÿ‘ I probably won't repurchase these if they come out, I just want to love them if I'm going to seek them out. not mind blowing, but cute packaging

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

On the bright side, you certainly gave this line a fair chance to stand out @lmaster ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I did for sure! @eshoe 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  Too bad this wasn't mind blowing, but nice results and cute packaging isn't so bad! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 it wasn't a total loss for sure!! Decent experience ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

The packaging on these sheet masks are adorable @lmaster!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

They are too cute! @itsfi 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  Sounds fairly decent. And usually I'm not ready for Christmas this early in the year, but that packaging is making me excited for it. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@PrettyPaint I'm fairly certain my older masks are getting a bit less saturated with serum, but definitely a decent mask

RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

It is very cute packaging @lmaster too bad itโ€™s not the best mask.

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

I think there were 4 or 5 different versions in this holiday sweet last year @Weetart they all are so cute

First, my skin felt cold with this mask on. Significantly cold. It was an odd feeling. But my skin was very soft afterwards.  It's for the best that this is a small container, I have so many masks to go through! 

My Overnight of choice was the DR. BRANDT SKINCARE - Hydro Bioticโ„ข Recovery Sleeping Mask, a nicely hydrating mask.

 

 

 

 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

What a great pick for your first Fresh mask, @l8totheparty! They make so many good ones๐Ÿ˜„

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I like using the Fresh mask as an overnight mask @l8totheparty. Completely agree with the smaller container; most, if not all of my Fresh masks are deluxe samples and it still takes me a while to get through them. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

That was the first go with the Fresh mask, @itsfi . I will have to remember to try it overnight one of the next times!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@l8totheparty  I really loved that Fresh mask! The texture and cooling feeling is so nice! Glad you enjoyed both of these! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I liked that mask so much that I purchased the full size during F&F @l8totheparty .

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Sorry I didnโ€™t explain myself @l8totheparty. FRESH - Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Which one, @Loretta55 ? ๐Ÿ˜Š
