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

Spoiler
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!

itsfi

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

sonnydee

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

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

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

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

lmaster

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

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ha he is basking in the extra attention @averylayne good for him (and you!) 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe haha yup, he's like my third child 😂

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

haha this is funny @averylayne 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint we love finding humor in everything! Happy Sunday 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@averylayne  Modeling masks can be a lot of work, but also super fun and entertaining! Let us know how this one turns out! 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I don't know how they get the mask to look so even in the product pictures, but my application was very clumpy haha.  There's a lot of product in one package, so I shared with my hubby 😂 I've been exfoliating a lot lately, and wanted something more soothing, and the mask felt very refreshing and hydrating.  My hubs even commented that it made his luna oil absorb so much better 🤣 It was a fun mask to use!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@averylayne  That's awesome you and your husband mask together and was willing to try this! Love his Luna oil comment! 😉😆

These can be pretty tricky, because it's a race against time. You have to mix it super fast so you have time to make it smooth and get it on your face quick before it sets up. I definitely don't do these too often, partly because of the mess and the time it takes, but also because the whole mixing and getting it on your face in time kinda makes me anxious sometimes. Haha! 😂 It definitely have the fun factor going for it though! Glad this was a good experience for you and that you could share it with your hubby! 😊👍

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I agree, there's definitely a little bit of anxiety that comes with the mixing and applying 😅 My hubs doesn't need much convincing, I'm pretty sure he secretly enjoys using my products lol

Dillydelight is egg-cellent!

This little gem found its way into my hands last year from @heartsmyface. I honestly thought I would never use it; the packaging is way too cute. BUT the prospect of a teeny tiny spatula hiding in the package got the best of me.

 

The Dillydelight Real Egging Pack is a sleeping mask, and my experience has been that most are somewhat tacky. So I was going in with some expectations here. Opening the first compartment revealed-nothing! I thought for a minute it had been some biodegradable spoon and dissolved because I waited too long to try it. I checked the expiration date; that’s not it, it doesn’t expire for another year. I looked at the packaging and realized the punch-out is the spatula. Ha! Time to get to business.

 

My little helper first decided we needed a proper translation, to make sure the ingredient list was ok. Korean didn’t work, so I told her to try Japanese.


Is this the right one?Is this the right one?

Sea urchin? Not sure how I feel about the rest of that second translation 😆 After a good laugh, she mixed the ‘yolk’ into the whites (there is real egg white). The result was a water-gel/cream blend, with a pleasant but almost unnoticeable scent. I applied it to my skin and it went on smoothly, with a matte-like finish. This has a very unique texture, and I loved it. I decanted the remainder (this might last me a few days; I used it again tonight) into a little jar and set it inside my mini fridge.Before mixingBefore mixing

What an absolute delight this mask is, thank you so much hearts💕!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Wow this mask is intriguing! Love the visuals @eshoe!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Glad you enjoyed them, @ShortErica @it was such a fun mask and the visual appeal is 👍🏼

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  @heartsmyface  This may be one of the cutest masks I have ever seen! It looks like so much fun, and I love all the photos included! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint isn’t it adorable? I’ve had it a few months, set it out to try multiple times and put it back because it’s just so satisfying to look at 😄 I will just have to find more, glad I finally decided to go for it. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

If you find a good place to purchase them online, would you mind letting me know? @eshoe. It's just too adorable to resist Smiley Happy 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint @eshoe  I've looked for these before, and the only places I found it was Amazon, eBay, and a site called BBcosmetic.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks so much @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I’ve ordered from BBCosmetic before @Shosh85 @PrettyPaint, they had pretty fast shipping from what I remember and included a few foil samples inc. some DHC ones. It’s been at least a year but I would order from them again!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @eshoe. I hadn't heard of bbcosmetic before, so it's good to know they are legit! Smiley Happy

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Good to know! I am always a little hesitant when buying from a site I've never purchased from before. 👍

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That being said, @Shosh85 I hadn’t been on the site in awhile (I bought my Yadah foaming cleanser oh, at least a year ago). I’m a little less inclined to order from a lot of smaller/less known companies online now, but I had no issuesSmiley Happy

 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I will, @PrettyPaint! When I did my first look online I saw Ipsy carries (-ied?) them, but I don’t have that sub. Idk if you can buy from them without being a subscriber, but I am going to find out and will let you know😊
