๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

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’–

@eshoe Wow, that fresh mask looks almost edible... I'm going to have to add that to the long running loves list. 

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

The lists just donโ€™t ever seem to get any shorter, do they @QueenMarceline? Well, if they do, somehow other options pop up to try! 

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

@eshoe Hahah, you're definitely not wrong there. ๐Ÿ˜†

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

PSA: Masking Mavens, it looks like Farmacy has reformulated its Honey Potion mask

Among other things, the new version includes apple extract, niacinaide, cica and ceramide. Hmmm... ๐Ÿค” 

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

@itsfi I saw this and am suuuuper curious!  I'm wondering if we'll see a promo for the new version soon.  I think I spotted it in the rewards bazar today.  Might need to go double check and place an order.  For science!

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

A new promo @missjeanie? I would wholeheartedly second, third, fourth ... that! ๐Ÿ˜ I'm 4 days into my mask no-buy (I know, sooo good, right?!! Hahahaha!) but I could see myself going into a store to purchase a bday gift for friends and perhaps asking for a sample of this new mask, for, as you put it, science. ๐Ÿ˜‚ It's hard to say "no" to science. 

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

@itsfi If it was a free promo... then technically you didn't buy it and it's not breaking a no-buy.  I mean... technically and all.  I did go to check and it was not the new mask in the rewards bazaar.  But... They'll have a promo soon right?? Right???

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

@missjeanie, I'm down with abiding by technicalities on this one! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Love it! It's also probably the smarter approach to sample the mask first, right? ๐Ÿค” In case my skin reacts poorly to it.

 

I have to think that there would be a promo of it, either at Sephora or Farmacy direct - I went online to the brand site and the current foil sample with purchase is from their greens range. I imagine it's only a matter of time. I've noticed recently that Sephora has had promo gwp codes for some of the newer launches (yaaaay!) and they're coming out closer to the release dates - it would be great if that held true for this new mask. 

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

@itsfi I'm considering getting a promo to be the responsible thing here.  I mean, a full size is great, but with my current collection size, I can't justify that (I might still have 3/4 of a jar of the original left).  I can however justify checking out the new one to see if I should buy it during a sale.  #fiscallyresponsible

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

Absolutely @missjeanie! I like your thinking!!

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

Based on this info, it sounds promising, @itsfi. I finished a jar recently, so I will be interested to see how the new formula compares @ather  

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

@eshoe @itsfi  Iโ€™ve been super interested in this. Also the new one Farmacy 10% Niacinamide Night Mask 1.7 oz/ 50 mL  I saw it as a DS but Iโ€™m on a no buy till April. Maybe they will come out with a kit that has both!!! 

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

Until April, @ather ๐Ÿ˜ณ I wish you the best of of luck, that is great and I know you can do it!!!

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

@eshoe  Thanks for your support. I do have a 100$ rouge reward that I can spend before April but I want to make sure itโ€™s something I want or really need. Before using it. 

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

Yes @ather I hear you on that. Best to play safe!

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

@eshoe  Probably soooo many new releases coming too!

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

@ather. ask and you shall receive ... there's a set available from Farmacy direct โฌ‡๏ธ, and 20% off. I'm shopping my stash these days, for the most part. I hope that a similar set (or perhaps one in deluxe sample or mini sizes) will be available during the spring sale. @eshoe

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

For the most part I am too, @itsfi @ather but that doesnโ€™t mean I am not just a wee bit curious about both of these. 

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

@eshoe  Me too. I have gotten a local friend super into Farmacy and she wanted the Farmacy 10% Niacinamide Night Mask 1.7 oz/ 50 mL  but was sold out online. But they had it in stores. But itโ€™s her birthday month and they didnโ€™t have the birthday gift. So she was torn. 

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

@itsfi omg thatโ€™s awesome. Iโ€™m shopping my stash too. I have a bunch of masks I need to use up first. 

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

@eshoe, not sure how the concentrations of the honey, propolis and royal jelly in the new version compare to their volume in the original formulation, but the additional ingredients are good ones, so it'll be interesting to see how the new one performs. ๐Ÿ˜€
