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!

The scent was lovely! Could be strong for some, but I enjoyed it! @byme4u 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  I’ve never seen this one!  The ingredients sound great and super moisturizing!  

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@heartsmyface I hadn't seen this one either! It really was great despite the "gross" ingredients 😂

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

WoW @lmaster !!! I didn’t realize all the odd ingredients in this one! I actually have a few I haven’t tried yet. Will need to do it tonight when I get home! Great review!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie the scent and benefits totally make up for the unique ingredients 😉

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  So happy it's a winner for you, and such a perfect one for this week! I really liked this one too and remember being really surprised at the variety of unique ingredients that's in it!..... that's probably why it's so good 😉

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Totally agree! @Shosh85 this mask in all is very unique, another mask I have to keep my eyes peeled for 😆

The Creme Shop Cica-Mend Sheet Mask 🐯

Since I had it, I started out using the Cica-Mend Toner. It has a light, clean scent, a nice fine mist and it felt soothing and refreshing. The mask is thin-medium cotton that had a cute tiger design on it. It was so drenched with serum, I had to shake it a bit before placing. It had a pleasant clean and fresh kind of scent that was hardly noticeable while the mask was on. The fit was great and was only a little too long at the chin. It was comfortable to wear and the adherence was good, except for the extra length at the chin that didn't want to lay flat. I removed it after about a half hour. The serum and tackiness that was leftover absorbed within minutes. I placed a couple drops of the serum on afterward as the package suggests. It had the same type of clean and fresh scent the mask did and felt soothing going on. It did make my face tacky, but only for a few minutes. My face looked a little brighter and more even and my skin felt refreshed, hydrated and soft and smooth.

I'm really happy I decided to buy 2 boxes of these, because I'll definitely have no problem using them up!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you, @mrsmouse! It reallywas so great! I'm glad I decided to pick up another package, but I think I might grab more if I see them! 😃🐯

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

So cute hah 🌺⭐️

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

Thank you, @Ninasa88!! 🐯

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

This masking lineup is amazing @Shosh85! Cute packaging and cica is such a wonderful ingredient! That mask is adorable! Fun and effective! Hard to top that!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you, @itsfi!!! I've really enjoyed this cica line so far! A fun and effective mask is always my favorite! 😃🐯

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85, so cute the collection, just like you!   I can't get the spoiler to open,

this site can be a pain, I had to sign in through conversations; go figure.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you so much, @byme4u! This Cica line has really been so great so far!


Also, I pretty much sign in through conversations all the time - it's usually the only way I can log in now 🤨

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85   The whole matching set of tiger skincare is very pleasing to look at.  Also jotting this down as an animal/print mask that actually resembles an animal when on.  

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@heartsmyface  Yeah, it's always nice when the mask actually looks like the animal it's supposed to be! I like the added touch of the bandaid on this one 😂😃🐯

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Sounds like a winning set of skincare! And a cute mask to boot! 😊🐯


I have one gifted to me I will have to pull out one of these days. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@l8totheparty  I really love all three of these and I love that the mask is both fun and effective! I hope you end up liking the mask as well! 😃🐯

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Your selfies are my favourite @Shosh85 !! I bypassed a few boxes of these telling myself I have too many Masks, must cut back... but maybe I’ll need to grab some. I do have one to try from the masks on the move! You’re convincing me to buy before I try lol!
