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!

I'll be looking forward to what you think @eshoe 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@ShortErica  I've never heard of these either, but I'm glad they turned out nice! 
...and a couple days behind isn't so bad! - I'm about a few weeks behind πŸ˜‚


Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 I think @heartsmyface may have sent you one from this brand. Does this look familiar at all? @ShortErica 



Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe Yes! She gave me the brightening one! The artwork is definitely fantastic! 😍

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Wow that's intense packaging @eshoe! I have never seen anything like it before

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@ShortErica I have a few from hearts that are slightly intense. In the sense that, I won’t photograph with my daughter nearby. She has a sensitive little soulSmiley Happy

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yes, only cuteness for the little masker @eshoe! Smiley Happy

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

That's not exactly your fault @Shosh85 πŸ˜˜

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Well @ShortErica I've never seen these before now! Love trying new masks

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster It's so fun! I need to figure my lineup for the rest of December and then start looking at the 2020 themes. Yay!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Now after reading @lmaster's review, I want to add that there was some extra serum that I used the next day in both packages and I didn't get tackiness. I need to get back into the masking game so I remember this stuff.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!




W is for When snow song

This is a thin sheet with a protective film, clear thin serum, not too much extra in the package. The scent is lovely, I'm picking up fruity vibes. Fit was pretty good, didn't have to use any tools to hold it in place, and it didn't get in my eyes! This mask is to illuminate dull looking skin, ingredients of niacinamide and vitamin c are featured. Wear time was 20 minutes, the serum absorbed nicely, and I don't notice any lasting tackiness. My skin did look a tad less red in areas, but not a shiny glow and that's ok! I felt more hydrated than before and moisturized, so it's a win for me, I'd use this one again πŸ™ŒIMG_20191206_150136904.jpg


Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster Seems to me that When masks have a faint fruity citrus scent. I tried this one but it’s been so long-sounds like a good mask. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Such fun holiday winter packaging @eshoe it was time for this mask to come out of hibernation πŸ˜†

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Tell me about it, @lmaster - I used a mask that fell apart on me tonight because it needed to be used (aka loved)!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh my gosh @eshoe πŸ˜‚

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  I didn't notice too much illumination when I tried this one either, but it turned out great for me too! So happy to hear you loved it! πŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 it was quite nice, and the scent was beautiful! 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

This mask just seems so appropriate for December. Love the look and glad it had good results @lmaster!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I've definitely been hoarding this one @ShortErica time to use most definitely! 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!


I had a hard time coming up with masks for W week but thought these two might work for my winter saviors. I kinda happened upon this combination and the warming and cooling sensation I get from them was surprisingly really nice - first the warming from the Farmacy honey potion and then the cooling from the Kiehl's calendula and aloe. Both were hydrating too which was great! I think I'll be trying this combo again.
