2019 Mask of the Week Main Thread & Misc. Info:
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: RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!
@SherandaPRO, I just saw this Farmacy mask when I was going through my bin recently! I need to give it a try; it sounds great! 😄
And on another note, love the color of your nail polish! 💅🏼
Re: RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!
@SherandaPRO Love it! - you look fantastic! I've been curious about the Farmacy mask- how is it working out for you so far?
Those eye masks are great - they definitely feel refreshing! 🥒
Re: RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!
@Shosh85 Thank you!, I love it, my skin just glows afterwards and it feels so smooth. I recommend this if you are looking for that spa like finish of a radiance peel.
Best To You!

@sonnydee how far apart are your kids? I have what they call Irish twins 😂 my boys are 13 months apart... 5&6 years old now!! I sooooo remember why my oldest son is 8 years older than my daughter, and my daughter is 7 years older than the little boys. Anxiety through the roof 24/7
