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!

@itsfi  I appreciate your thoughts on these masks. I just found the sleep mask, didn't realize I had it. That one is def coming out for the season. I also recently tried the PTR pumpkin mask that I got from the gratis and I fell in love with it. The scent alone is to die for Smiley Happy 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I agree; the scent on the PTR pumpkin mask is amazing @GalPalVal17. One of the many reasons I love that mask! I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on the TCFS sleeping mask. It’s one of those sleeper hits (I didn’t plan for the pun but it works! Hahaha!) - can be easily overlooked and then you wonder how could possibly forget about it given the results. Hope it works out well for you. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Great pumpkin theme @itsfi 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you @lmaster! πŸ€— It’ll be winter holiday themes coming up soon, which I love as well, so I’m trying to get in my fall fix while I can! πŸ‚πŸ 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Went with the gross/odd/unusual theme, because there's nothing like salmon egg extract in the morning πŸ˜ƒπŸŸ960F1395-98C9-4F16-A283-DA7CB799A9E5.jpeg


Foreverskin Salmon Whitening Mask

This is a thin-medium cotton sheet mask that was saturated with a white creamy milky serum. The scent was sort of a mix of sweet/fruity and fresh & clean. The fit was almost perfect and was just slightly too long at the chin. It adhered very well and was very comfortable to wear. I took it  off after about 35 minutes. The serum absorbed quickly, but left behind some slight tackiness that went away after about 15 minutes. My face looked a little brighter, had a nice glow and felt bouncy and hydrated.

I really loved this one and will definitely be repurchasing!



Foreverskin Salmon Eye Patch

These are cotton eye patch that are thin-medium in thickness and have a fun salmon design that really makes me crave sushi πŸ˜‚πŸ£πŸ± They were saturated with serum and had a pleasant clean and fresh kind of scent. They were comfortable wear and adhered well the 15ish minutes I had them on. When I removed them, my under eyes looked a little brighter and smooth and felt moisturized.

I really wasn't expecting much from these, but was pleasantly surprised! I'll definitely repurchase these! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘



Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

This is great @Shosh85 !  made me smile! 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie  These were super fun! I'm happy it could make you smile! 😊

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

This eye mask made me giggle @Shosh85 . How fun.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@emaisgr8  Me too! Ha ha! I didn't know what they looked like until I opened it πŸ˜‚

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

haha @Shosh85  those eye masks are so darn cute. Glad they left great results for you. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@GalPalVal17  The eye patches were so fun! - I'll definitely have to get more soon! 🍣🍱

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

This masking experience is so well coordinated @Shosh85 love the salmon eye patches

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  I figured if I was going to get the mask I might as well get the eye patches too πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

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

Those eye masks are hilarious πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚

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

@Ninasa88  Aren't they?! They definitely made me smile! 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oooh, a new brand! 🀩 Both these masks sound amazing @Shosh85! πŸ₯° Those eye masks are super cute! If dinner wasn’t already prepped, I’d be heading for some sushi and sashimi! 🍣 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi  I really want to try the others from the line now! The salmon cheek patches look good too πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I went and looked up the cheek patches - soooo cute! And, there's also masks for the laugh lines! What a fun range of masks @Shosh85! I just love and appreciate your attitude towards masking! Smiley Happy 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi  I saw the laugh lines one too! Eventually I'll try them all πŸ˜‰

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Those look awesome @Shosh85!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@faeriegirl  They were so fun! πŸ˜ƒ
