6ADE6F2B-300D-4DE5-8A89-DEBA0CC45743.gif

Welcome to the 2024 Masking Challenge! 

 

This year is going to be a little different - simplified. Easy. Every month will have a new theme, and that's it. Feel free to join in whenever and wherever. Most importantly - have fun!


Spring Fling - Baskets and bouquets, showers of much-anticipated rain...this month's focus is herbal and floral sensory delights ๐Ÿ’ฎ

Spoiler
JanuaryFresh Starts - Time for a re-set, or morning masking? However you see it, this month is all about new beginnings.
FebruaryWinter Love - Whether it's a mask you adore, or something extra-special to care for dry winter skin, this month is for some soothing TLC.
MarchMarch Madness - Competition is in the air! Find a $ dupe of a $$$ mask that is share-worthy? Or find a dupe that works even better than the original? Details, please!
AprilSpring Fling - Baskets and bouquets, showers of much-anticipated rain...this month's focus is herbal and floral sensory delights.
MayDew Drops - May Day lore says to wash your face in the dew you collect in the morning of the first day of May for radiant skin. This month is for absorbing all of that good-for-you H2O.
JuneSummer Sunshine - Ice cream, sunglasses, SPF, check! Once the sun is down (or before it's up), extra care is most necessary. How do you give your skin cooling repair?

Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Too bad about the tack, @Kim888. At least there was some decent hydration out of it!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Kim888 well, that's too bad, it sounded so promising too

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Kim888  That sounds nice that there was plenty of essence, but too bad about the tackiness. I tend to have issues with that as well...though I don't mind too much as long as I don't have to apply makeup right afterwards. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@FullCoverageBB, if you're interesting in trying the strawberry face mask, this deal might make it worthwhile to pick up some masks from the clean line.

D for Dewytree 

Dewytree 100 Mask - CicaDewytree 100 Mask - Cica

Spoiler
The serum for this sheet mask is made of cica, and just cica. ๐Ÿ˜ @Shosh85, I thought I'd be able to share with you what my take on cica's scent after using this mask, but my nose didn't pick up any scent from this 100% centella asiatica extract serum. Hmmm... ๐Ÿค”
 
This mask is drenched with serum and it is runny and drippy coming straight out of the packet; it's also light mocha / tan in color, which having saturated the sheet material, tints it a similar shade. The sheet mask material is said to be made up of a blend of cotton, eucalyptus fiber and algae/seaweed. It's soft, thin-leaning and lightweight. Size-wise, it's overly large for my face shape, which is standard for sheet masks, and, as with most sheet masks, a few incisions are needed to the corners of the openings for the eyes and mouth, to help the fabric lie flat against my skin. The mask bunches up ever so slightly along the sides of my face which is not common but is easily remedied. I love cica for how it calms and soothes my skin, reduces discoloration from acne / PIH or dark spots, and hydrates. This mask did not disappoint and accomplished all those things in the half hour I kept it on my face. So far, I've used the cica and quince mask from this Dewytree 100 line and of the two, I prefer this cica version.  

ETA: Shosh, @WinglessOne picked up a scent when she first reviewed this mask about a year ago:  https://community.sephora.com/t5/Skincare-Aware/Mask-of-the-Week-Challenge/m-p/5547108/highlight/tru...

 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  I remember @WinglessOne reviewing this one and her description of the scent! It makes me really want to try and grow a Cica plant! This mask certainly sounds great! It's hard to go wrong with 100% Cica! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85, how great would that be if you were to grow a cica plant?!!! I am barely keeping my aloe plant alive; the orchids are so much easier for me to care for. ๐Ÿ˜‚  I've enjoyed the masks I've used so far from this Dewytree 100 line. I can't seem to pick up a scent from any of them though. โ˜น๏ธ But I'll keep trying! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi @WinglessOne  I've started to research how and when to grow, and instead of seeds I may be able to get a plant that's already started! I just want to make sure the timing is right ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85, how great would that be if you were able to get one that is already started - brilliant! I'm staying tuned for developments. @WinglessOne 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85 @itsfi  Each time I use this mask, I'm surprised it doesn't have a stronger scent. I don't know why since none of my other heavily cica skincare products have much of a scent (if any), but I keep expecting a 100% centella asiatica mask to make its presence known to my nose while covering my face. But yeah, I do still detect a green, almost pine, just shy of medicinal scent each time I sniff this mask serum. Years of wine sniffing & tasting have trained my nose well. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

 

I'm glad you enjoyed this one, itsfi! It's still among my favorites. And Shosh, definitely let us know if you grow a cica plant! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@WinglessOne @Shosh85, smelling a cica plant is actually something I now want to do, but that'll have to wait for a while. In the meantime, I might have to follow your lead winglessone and train my nose - if that means I need to make more occasions to sniff and taste wine, well, so be it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I think I have this one!! @itsfi ๐Ÿค” it looks really familiar ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster, if you have it, it's definitely a good one to try. Soothing, hydrating, and 100% cica!! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  I'm pretty confident I have this one somewhere. This makes me want to try and find it and see if I can detect a scent. I don't really know what cica is supposed to smell like, though.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@PrettyPaint, if you find it, I would love to know your thoughts on it and if you pick up a scent. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I found it this morning - yay! Luckily it was at the top of my bin. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Woohoo!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ I'm sensing a cica masking sesh will be in the works soon @PrettyPaint. Yes!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi Ooh that sounds nice!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Samtian, I have 2 more from the line to try and am looking forward to them. It's great for seeing how the skin responds to that one ingredient! ๐Ÿ˜€ If I find one I like more than the others, I might see about picking up a week's worth and seeing how my skin responds if I did some daily masking with just the mask. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi., it's only made of one ingredient?!! That's cool.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@nuinui933, very cool, right? It's great to see a mask that's literally just about the touted ingredient. ๐Ÿ‘
