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

@lmaster  This one was nice! The design is super cute! 🦄

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 , I love the little design on the mask.   Sounds like a great filler mask.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie  The cute little design was a nice touch! I wouldn't quite put this in the filler mask category, maybe a step above a filler mask 😉😃

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

nice @Shosh85 .  Even better!

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85  that mask has a cute little print on it. At least it gave you decent results and looked cute. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@GalPalVal17  A cute mask with nice results is hard to complain about! 😃

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Sounds like it performed well @Shosh85 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@emaisgr8  It really turned out nice! 😃

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Finishing  off T & gross week with these lovlies

The Timeless Ferment Snail eye mask was ok. It did stay in place well which is good for the hydrogel mask. I usually have a hard time with this material as it slips  often but gave it a try anyways. Results weren't miraculous but then again it's just one use. Would use again if came across but wouldnt run out to get them.
Also used the PTR 24K Gold mask. This mask is a fun one to use because its so pretty. Can't say I see results from this, maybe if it were used regularly but not something I would go out and purchase.

I liked this OhK Bamboo Water  mask with Tumeric. Didn't have any scent that I could remember or stood out to me. Fit was decent and my face did feel hydrated after. No tackiness which is always a plus for me. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Pretty sure we were masking twins Tuesday, @GalPalVal17; used the 24k along with the Moor Mud on the t-zone. Haven’t seen those eye patches, but nice that you tried them. I think you hit the nail on the head; it takes consistency to notice any results. That’s why I’m in it for the fun😊

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@GalPalVal17 nice masking.  I'm more and more a fan of eye gels, but I too find some are slippery little buggers that don't want to stay in place.  

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@GalPalVal17  I've tried bamboo masks and I've tried turmeric masks, but I don't think I've ever tried one with both! Glad to hear you liked it! 🐼

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Love seeing all these different eye masks @GalPalVal17 super cute Panda packaging 

RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

T is for Trehalose. It’s an ingredient that was in both step one and two of the mask I used. Facetory woah that h2o. I’m reviewed this one before, still underwhelming, but I have a couple left in my stash so gotta use them up. I also featured my Amorepacific moisture bound spray. This stuff is my go to between masking for skin hydration. No other spray matches in quality for my skin.

Re: RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I need to know more about the AP spray, @Weetart! An empty bottle kinda speaks for itself😉

Re: RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Weetart great to know about the AP spray.  I've dabbled in hydrating sprays (as opposed to setting), but haven't ever found a love I'll have to put this on my loves list to give a go next time a sale rolls around!

Re: RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie I absolutely LOVE hydrating mists prior to masking and makeup. I have used the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing mist for years, and  now I’ve been trying some others. The GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist is good and smells amazing. I’ve read that certain ingredients in the mists can help attract moisture from sheet masks-so I’ve made it a habit. This coming from someone who notices the most minute changes in her skin. I am pretty certain the outside world sees no difference in my using a hydrating mist or not😉

Re: RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I have peeked at the Glow mist @eshoe , if memory serves it looked pretty small? I tend to use the ones I’ve tried more when I’m all sweaty gross in the warmer months as a refreshing spray. I should start trying them to put more moisture back in now that I’m back to the Sahara with my skin.

Re: RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie It’s 75ml, the spray is so fine it seems to last awhile, though.

Re: RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Weetart Too bad the mask was unimpressive! - it seems like a lot of people feel the same as you about this one 😉

Re: RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Weetart wasting masks is just not acceptable is it 😂 I know the feeling
