Mask of the Week Misc. Info & Previous Year's Links:

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

NEW!!! Got an idea for next year's challenge? Let me know! Was there a challenge you'd rather not repeat? Share below, so we can start building the 2021 schedule:



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

J is for Jelly IMG_20200425_132236521.jpg


This is a white sheet tons of clear serum, to me it didn't really resemble the jelly masks that I've come accustomed to. The scent was unnoticeable while wearing, but if you try to smell in the package, you will get a typical sheet mask scent. The fit was good other than the eye holes were a bit small. Wear time is 15 min, after removing my face looked brighter, the redness was completely gone, I noticed a touch of hydration, and moisturizing benefits before the serum fully absorbed. I wouldn't choose this mask based on the claims of moisturizing, but definitely the claims of brightening. Another note is this  mask does stay tacky unless you apply moisturizer. I personally like to use these as a primer mask before makeup
It gets an B+ 



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yep I recall the tackiness on this one, @lmaster - but such a nice mask!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe I know everybody has their own specific preference and usually I don't like tackiness, but I've always liked this brand

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I’ve gotten to a point that I don’t mind it so much anymore, either @lmaster. There are certainly worse things!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yay for adding brightness and helping to eliminate redness, @lmaster!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh absolutely! @quspork can't complain one bit about those results 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

This jelly sheet mask definitely makes for a lovely primer mask @lmaster

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi yes they do, I usually use them for that purpose, but I have a few expiring soon, so no better time than for the challenge 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  I've been looking for masks that would be good for the morning before makeup. This sounds interesting. Where did you get it?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@divaknits I'm thinking I bought it from yesstyle dot com

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  This one sounds pretty good!!! Glad it was able to take all your redness away!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Completely @ather wasn't even expecting that either

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  Glad it was a decent one for you! My notes on it say pretty much the same - a good morning mask because it brightened and stayed tacky a while 😉👍

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 yes if you don't go in with moisturizer pretty quickly it will remain sticky/ tacky until you do

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I finally tried my sample of the SUMMER FRIDAYS - Overtime MaskThe scent was really nice , I massaged it in for the recommended 60 seconds and left it on for 10 minutes. I did notice a little bit of tingling but it didn’t last very long. After I rinsed it off my face felt soft and smooth. I would definitely use it again. Hopefully they will make a mini one.



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yes- this is such a lovely mask, @faeriegirl! Maybe they'll put out another set with some minis around the holidays. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@faeriegirl  I’ve been hoping for a mini on this one too!!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@faeriegirl  Glad to hear you liked this one! This is my most favorite Summer Friday's mask 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

It is definitely a great one @Shosh85! If I didn’t have so many masks now I would get one.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@faeriegirl I hope summer Fridays comes out with more masks, in general they are all pretty nice

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I hope they do @lmaster, I have really liked everything I’ve tried from them.
