Welcome to a new year of masking adventures!

Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread two years ago, and giving us a place to share our love for masks. Below is the 2020 schedule. Feel free to post as frequently or infrequently as you would like, with or without following the challenge; they are guidelines and just something we do for fun.

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!

That mask holder is becoming a little lifesaver @lmaster! I haven’t seen this Naisture one, it sounds nice as long as the scent isn’t crazy strong.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

No it's definitely not strong @eshoe 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  I don't think I've ever seen a white rose mask before 😃 Glad to hear it turned out decent 😉

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 me either,,I had to try it 😊

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

U is for Ultra moisturizing & brightening84BBFA33-0FC9-489D-8FA7-76A1148682FC.jpeg


Sephora Lychee Face Mask

This is a super thin cotton sheet mask with plenty of serum and a pleasant clean and fresh scent. The fit was almost perfect, but was just little too long at the chin. I felt some very slight tingling, but it wasn't too noticeable. I left it on for about 20 minutes. After removing, I massaged in the leftover serum and it wasn't tacky or sticky. My face did feel moisturized and looked slightly brighter, but I wouldn't describe it as "ultra." It was decent and I'd use it again, but it's not one I'd repurchase.



@Shosh85 I still have not tried this one,, idk why but it...

@Shosh85 I still have not tried this one,, idk why but it's never really called my name 🤷

Re: @Shosh85 I still have not tried this one,, idk why but it...

@lmaster  I know what you mean - I've had this one sitting around for awhile! 😉

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I always forget about the SC masks I have stashed.  I'm not sure why, but I think that none of them really wow'd me.  Is there one that stands out to you @Shosh85 as better than the rest?

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie  The Pineapple and Pearl have been my favorites, though I'm not sure if I'd consider them to be wowing. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I’m so glad you reviewed this one, @Shosh85. Of the Sephora ones I haven’t tried, this has been on my to-do list. Seems like everyone who has tried it likes it well enough! I like a little tingling too, maybe  between the ascorbic acid, citric acid & sodium citrate that’s what works that magic? Sounds good enough to try, anyway!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe  It was pretty good! If it were cheaper, I'd put it in the filler mask category. 😉

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Uhhhh, my post is gone again.  This is discouraging.  

U is for unicorn.  It fits just alright.  Is long In the nose area.  Smells like strawberries and cream.  Lightly moisturizing.  It gets a B. 34D1299A-4B65-4893-9B15-00497E98714C.jpeg




Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Such a good unicorn face @heartsmyface! I wore my first animal face mask and feel my face shape doesn't make them as cute as they are on you and @Shosh85. Love this one especially with the vest!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!


The print made me smile - thanks for sharing <3

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I could swear I’ve tried this one and it didn’t have the cute unicorn print @heartsmyface! It’s adorable and I’m guessing that vest could tell some stories😄

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe  Oh do they change them up every now and then do you think?  

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

They must, the one I tried was from a multipack I think. Maybe the individually sold ones are fancier to justify the price difference? Sounds logical to meSmiley Wink

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

When your vest matches your sheet mask. Smiley Happy

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@PenelopeBT  Haha,  i was trying to look more unicorn-esqueSmiley Very Happy. Just in case the mask didn’t look unicorny enough on my face. 

mmmm this one smells delicious @heartsmyface

mmmm this one smells delicious @heartsmyface

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I love how you went "all in" with the theme @heartsmyface!  Glad it was okay, but wish it had been a better one because it's just so cute!
