2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Welcome to the 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!


Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread two years ago, and giving us a place to share our love for masks. Below is the new 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. We love hearing about every masking experience, and suggestions are always welcomed. Looking forward to sharing some new masking ❤️ with you all this year!

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

cianni

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

Ather

Use a resurfacing exfoliating spray (such as Kate Somerville’s Liquid ExfoliKate) before a detox mask to better clear out your pores

Miamia27

Re-use a large sample jar for a blank sheet mask pellet and fill it with essence/toner

Itsfi

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

YES!!!! Doctor Who! @heartsmyface  <3

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@heartsmyface omg this looks like it's out of a horror movie

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@heartsmyface  Haha! 😂😆 This GIF is both creepy and hilarious! 🤣

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Kim888  Glad it was decent enough! Smiley Happy This is also a mask I've never seen before. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@PrettyPaint I'm lucky there is an Asian beauty store about 10 blocks from my office so sometimes I just walk down there and see what's around 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Have you ever left empty-handed @Kim888 😙

2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

U is for changing U magic foot peeling shoes tonymoly. I feel like I have used this one in the past,,, based on the super funny wording on the back..."steps that can transform an average looking woman into an attractive lady" 🤦 I don't think I had good results last time I used this because I didn't leave them on long enough,, I'm now automatically leaving peeling feet masks on for a minimum of 3 hours. I left these on for 3 hours and 20 min. the scent wasn't too bad, and honestly the masks themselves were very comfortable,, I did put socks over them so I could still walk around without slipping 😆 I used these Monday night, I'm already seeing major drying out on the bottoms, so updates to come

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster, hahahahaha!!! Smiley Happy I recall you using this one too - and what triggered it is because of that marketing!! I look forward to hearing how these turn out for you. I think I have written down in my planner to "transform into an attractive lady" sometime next year so these could prove helpful. LOL!

 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi it's classic for sure! The wording is hilarious! I sure hope I transform soon 🙄

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I think it might be time to do another foot mask!  I hope this one works out for you @lmaster 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Can't wait to hear about you results, @lmaster!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@quspork day 5 a little bit of peeling on the sides, but no major results as of yet

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh yes, I remember this one, @lmaster! Quality technical writing there😂

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe isn't it hilarious!!??

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

That wording is funny, I've used these before and never caught it and sure enough when I checked mine in the drawer it says it too. @lmaster 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@CC3616 we would be so uncool if we didn't use these 😂

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Good Call on a foot peel @lmaster .  I might need to do one this week now that you've got me thinking of them.  Hope these ones work out better than your last go with the brand.  I think you've got it right though, they need to be kept on waaayyyy longer than instructed. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie it is definitely perfect timing!! Hope you do one too 🙌

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  I hope it works for you. I believe this is one of the foot masks I've tried in the past that didn't work. I only left it on for the recommended length of time, though. Smiley Happy (and my feet basically refuse to peel with any foot mask, apparently). 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@PrettyPaint that's how mine were too, until I started leaving them in for at least 3 hours

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster  Yeah, my last failed attempt was around 2 1/2 hours, so maybe 3 hours is the magic number for stubborn feet Smiley Happy
