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!

Trim off long chin and add to forehead for sheet masks

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

cianni

Derma plane prior to a peel-off mask to ease the pain of removal

heartsmyface

Warm water helps remove clay masks quicker than cold

Lay sheet masks flat prior to use so the serum is more evenly distributed 

eshoe 

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!

@WinglessOne  I saw that Facetory carries some of these! Fred Meyer carries the face wipes and micellar water from the Fresh Food For Skin line but not the masks, just the masks from the salad line 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85  Yep. In fact, I think my grape and mango masks came from Facetory. My cranberry ones came from Francesca’s, of all places: last month, while I searched for more of the kale and olive masks, Francesca’s was one of the results—but not for those 2 varieties. Looks like they’re now all sold out of what stock they had online, though. 

 

I just searched for the cranberry mask again and hey, Innerest (dot) net has them ALL! I don’t think I’d never seen the fig one before. Not sure why it never dawned on me to check Innerest when their name’s on the back of all these masks, along with Farmskin. Smiley Very Happy Gonna order my olive and kale masks soon! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@WinglessOne  Hmm, I haven't heard of the Innerest site before - will definitely have to check it out!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Good to know @WinglessOne! Thanks @Shosh85 for the tallies!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85  I’m glad you loved this one! It’s one of my favorite Farmskin masks and I’ve been trying to track down more of them (or the Superfood Salad kit it comes in). 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@WinglessOne  I don't know if you have a Fred Meyer near you, but I noticed they just started carrying the Salad Masks. (Not sure if it's all stores or just certain ones) I've hesitated only because it's twice as much as the ones I bought from Marshall's- but I have a feeling I'll give in soon, 'cause I really love these masks! 🥗😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85  Nope, no Fred Meyer here, but they’re part of the Kroger family; in Chicago, that includes Mariano’s. Next time I visit a Mariano’s, I’ll look for Farmskin masks! Thank you! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@WinglessOne Facetory carries them as well, but I think only a few different ones. Fred Meyer carries the kits, so that's probably what I'll end up doing. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Looks like one I need to try, @Shosh85 - I love to eat olives, at least😆

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe  Mmm, I love olives too, especially the stuffed kind 😉 This was another good one! I really love the milky serum. 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

And this is what I miss about the grocery store, @Shosh85 - the olive bar. There are no cute olive gifs, they were all pretty terrifying but yes this is what I love, too 💗 also, that serum sounds so good!A7957AA8-450A-4C6C-B941-2D81F7A51D88.jpeg

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe  Mmm, this picture looks delicious! I love the olive bar too - I usually get artichokes and olives 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe  Each time I come back to this thread and see your photos, I get a strong urge for my favorite olives (picholine). And now I’m going to see what kind of olive gifs are out there... curiosity compels me. Smiley Very Happy 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@WinglessOne @eshoe @ShortErica 

Had to look myself 😉C66A1F26-9B62-4459-9C59-3686904DB544.gif

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@ShortErica  These are great! That last one is a little sad - it makes me feel so bad for that little olive 😂

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Update on the Earth therapeutics foot peeling mask gifted to me from the kind hearted @faeriegirl 

Spoiler
It only took one full week for the entire peeling process to be done. I love the time frame on this peel because I've tried some that took almost a full two weeks to finish. I'd say out of all the earth therapeutic masks this is one I'd love to purchase!! It gets an A 

Next M for madecassosideIMG_20200403_143818407.jpg

 

Spoiler
I had high hopes for this one.. That's never a good start to a review 😔 well madecassoside is derived from the plant centella, it's supposed to be an anti redness and smoothing ingredient. The mask itself was the issue, it came with two perforated "ear" looking tabs at the top,, and I couldn't tear them off, and was too lazy to cut them lol so they hung like ears, the material was more of a medium thickness, fit was decent enough. White thicker milky serum, scent was herbal. I'm just trying to understand why these ear things are even here! 🤣 After removing, my face seemed less red and a bit moisturized. Very minimal tackiness. I wouldn't go out of my way to repurchase these. I'm just a no non sense kinda gal, just let me get the mask on please lol 
It gets a B- for all the fuss

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yay for the foot peel and boo for the mask! Sorry it didn't live up to expectations @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@ShortErica yeah I was bummed!! But like everyone else says.. On to the next!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  Sometimes those tabs annoy me, too. I usually cut ‘em off. Sounds like you got decent results, at least. And I’m glad the foot peel worked (and quickly) for you! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@WinglessOne all the masks I've tried,,, I've never seen these,, or at least if I have, it's been quite some time. Super annoying 😆
