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!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  It's too bad about the scent, but everything else sounds wonderful! Glad it turned out nice for you! 🥕😃

We Bare Bears X Missha Herb In Nude Sheet Mask ~Moisturizing Care~

This is a thin and transparent cotton sheet mask that was saturated with serum and enough extra in the pouch for neck and hands. It had a light rose scent that wasn't too noticeable while the mask was on. The fit was ok - just a little too long at the chin and a teensy bit too wide at the temples. It had great adherence and was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. After removing, it took less than 10 minutes for the serum and tackiness to absorb. My face felt refreshed, nicely moisturized and was soft and smooth. 

This is the second mask I've tried from the line and I really enjoyed them both. I'm not sure I'd put a whole lot of effort in finding these but I'd definitely use again!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 I bought this one after you tried it awhile ago and loved it. Nice mask, the eye ones are good, too!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe  I've never tried this one before, but I did try the hydrating version that has a white bear on the packaging. Both great in my opinion though! Glad to hear you've enjoyed the brand so far too! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 @Ha, that show is super cute.  Ice bear is my favourite.  Did it have a bear print on it?  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@heartsmyface  The bears are adorable and I would've loved if the mask had some kind of print, but it was just a plain ol' sheet mask 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 these are really cool themed masks, happy you enjoyed it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  It really is a fun theme and those bears are so cute! 🐻

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Haha, I tasked but didn’t mask last night. I’m lucky to have gotten a barebones skincare routine done at all. But here’s what happened over the weekend: 

 

Sunday night’s mask was Peripera Sparkling TokTok Time - Cherry Refreshing. A friend sent this to me after I asked where she got her last batch of Peripera masks—because I was kinda iffy about ordering again from RoseRoseShop. (They carry the Peripera Smoothie and TokTok masks.) I didn’t expect her to send me a bunch of ‘em! Anyway, I’d never tried any of the TokTok masks until last night. 

 

The TokTok Time masks are new to me.The TokTok Time masks are new to me.

Notes: 

Spoiler

Claims: Combats wrinkles; provides refreshing hydration; protects fatigued skin. Peripera says the Sparkling TokTok Time masks will “clear away sebum, grease, and impurities with clean carbonated water.” I’m not so sure about that, but I do believe the anti-wrinkle, refreshing hydration, and skin protection claims after reviewing the ingredients. 

 

Ingredients: Ooooh, 3 peptides, including Matrixyl (palmitoyl pentapeptide-4) which can indeed reduce lines and wrinkles. Sweet cherry extract is a good vitamin C source. Peripera specifically calls out Pollustop® (the brand name for biosaccharide gum-4) as the fatigued skin protector, but cherry extract’s antioxidants are also effective protectors. I also see licorice root extract and 3 forms of hyaluronic acid, plus skin-soothing wrinkle-fighting adenosine. 

Spoiler
Water, Glycerin, Butylene glycol, Propanediol, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Arginine, Carbomer, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Allantoin, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Prunus Avium (Sweet Cherry) Fruit Extract (1000ppm), Methylpropanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Biosaccharide Gum-4, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, Glutathione, Oligopeptide-29, Oligopeptide-32, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Hydroxyacetophenone, Chlorphenesin, Fragrance 

Performance: Despite the mask’s name, sleeve front design, and carbonated water ingredient, it’s not fizzy at all. It’s a super thin stretchy sheet with no backing. I could really have used a mesh backing on this one. Nearly all the serum was on the sheet, with just a tiny bit left in the sleeve. The sheet covered my jaw and was a good length for my face; no scissor tailoring required. It was very cooling on my skin. The scent reminded me of cherry powdered Kool-Aid from my 1970s childhood; made me smile and wasn’t overbearing. I wore it for 30 minutes, then massaged serum into my skin for just 30 seconds. No tack or pilling, but my face did have a slight white cast. Thankfully it disappeared after a minute or two. 

 

Results: Nicely hydrated, mildly moisturized, and soft skin. More than anything, my skin felt VERY refreshed, as if I’d just held my face in a bowl of cool fizzy water for several minutes. I definitely needed moisturizer afterward, but my face didn’t feel dry anywhere. These results + the ingredients = a morning mask contender. This is another sparkling rosé, more brut than demi-sec, in the 90-92 point range. I’ll use another one of these this summer, when I think it’ll be more of a 92 point experience. 

Saturday night’s favorite scented mask was the LuLuLun Premium Amaou Strawberry Mask. They currently make 2 strawberry masks; this is the one I already know and love. 

 

My 3rd unopened pack, waiting for me to finish pack number 2.My 3rd unopened pack, waiting for me to finish pack number 2.

Notes: 

Spoiler

Claims: Brightens, plumps, and moisturizes skin. Improves elasticity and sheen. 

 

Ingredients: There are 2 ceramides listed higher than strawberry extract, plus seaweed extract, the humectant polyquaternium-51, and a fermented form of sodium hyaluronate. With all those ingredients, this should be one heckin’ moisturizing mask. 

Spoiler
Water, Glycerin, Propanediol, Polyquaternium-51, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate, Dihydroxypropyl Agrinine HCL, Ceramide AP, Ceramide NP, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Fragaria Ananassa (Strawberry) Fruit Extract, Sargassum Horneri Extract, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Phenoxyethanol, Methlyethanol, Fragrance, Butylene Glycol 

Performance: The soft semi-stretchy sheet fits like other LuLuLun sheets, requiring the same amount of cutting. The clear serum smells like strawberry gummy bears and, while the mask is on my face, feels like it doesn’t skimp on the ceramides. I wore the mask for just 20 minutes this night. For the last 2-3 minutes, I gently pressed my face (over the mask) with my palms. After removing the sheet, I needed just 30 seconds to massage and press the remaining serum into my skin. I had no tackiness or pulling afterward. 

 

Results: My face was well hydrated, very moisturized, baby soft, moderately dewy, and quite bright. My skin’s a huge fan of this mask. It’s a lush 94 point Sauternes whose score isn’t higher only because of the eye/mouth hole situation. I’m on my second pouch of this mask and I’m strongly considering buying a pack of 35 while they’re on sale, rather than keep buying one 7-sheet pouch at a time. 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

A pack of 35 @WinglessOne that’s a serious commitment 🤭 Nice work finding a mask that meets your needs. And also, I will need to try that Peripera it looks perfect for summertime  🍓 !

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85  @heartsmyface  @lmaster  I haven’t had a big problem with RoseRoseShop yet. I don’t get shipping notification emails from them and they can take a long time to ship, so package arrival time is always a total mystery. Smiley Very Happy That’s not a big problem for me since I live in a building with a secure package room, where folks are far less inclined to steal other people’s packages. It’s just annoying. I can see how it’d be a serious issue for folks who live in detached homes where porches are monitored by package thieves. 

 

A friend had lots of items dropped from her order without any notice, and her experience with RoseRoseShop’s customer service was bad enough for her to vow never to shop with them again. That seems to be a common complaint about them, so... hopefully I won’t have major issues with getting refunds for missing items. Hopefully no one here will, either. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@WinglessOne   That doesn’t sound too too bad. I forget I’ve made orders all the time - especially with things like sheet masks.  If it’s limited edition makeup or something that’s been hyped I don’t ever forget though and definitely want to track it. I’m usually good with just an order confirmation number otherwise.  We’re fairly off the beaten path and haven’t had problems with package thieves to date.  Hopefully it stays that way.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@WinglessOne   The tok tok packaging is wonderful!   What happened with Roseroseshop? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Can I ask, why you are iffy about ordering from roserose? @WinglessOne 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

You have all my attention on the tok tok @WinglessOne looks very refreshing!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@WinglessOne 

So happy to hear this mask is in the 90's for you - it sounds great! I have this plus 4 others from the line I still need to try. I'm hoping the others are just as good! 😃

Just curious, did you have a bad experience with the RoseRoseShop?

2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

N for new to me [I had FOMO], M for melon, & I did task while I masked so all 3 for checked off tonight. Fit was typical. Can't decide which melon though..honeydew?👃 it did have a good amount of serum but I do wish it had a lil bit more for my shoulders-i choose this because it says it helps soothe irritated & sun-exposed skin. Which I have currently have, trying to keep it fun & normal for the kids. It did such a wonderful job, I already placed a order for another set. Hope I get them to share with at least 1 box for motm. They definitely are on the always have on hand list🤗💚💚💚💚💚💚
