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 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Too adorable ๐Ÿ˜ @CookieGirl1 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster, that's a bummer it didn't have a milky serum but the scent on this is intriguing, especially since some of the extracts in this have some very distinctive scents on their own. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I was definitely expecting it to be milky because of the packaging and name, but I'm not mad it's not ๐Ÿ˜ this was a great mask in every aspect 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster  The scent on this one sounds amazing! I need to keep my eyes out for this line! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Yes you do!! @ather I managed to grab the box right when the employee was putting it on the shelf ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Grape Laffy Taffy, @lmaster - now really, that is a good memory ๐Ÿ˜‚ I did not expect that, and now I know what to look for on my next TJ Maxx hunt, thanks to you! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Yes!!! I was not expecting it either @eshoe so I'm going to be obsessed at finding the other two to see how they smell ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

PSA: gwp promo of the innisfree Volcanic AHA Pore Clearing Clay Mask 3.38 oz/ 100 mL is available with minimum $25 spend. Iโ€™ve found this to be a gentle but effective mask for clearing pores and helping to flatten pimples.

The DDG peel pads are good too; this is the gentle version.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  Yes! I love that clay mask also! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Thanks for sharing! @itsfi

Lychee Mask.jpg

 
Spoiler
Each iteration of the Sephora Collection sheet masks get better and better - nice work, Sephora Collection Team! The soft, thin, plant-based sheet adheres well to the skin and wore comfortably for the entire 30 minutes I wore the mask. The clear essence saturating the sheet has enough viscosity to it to keep it from being too runny or dripping off the face. There's a scent to it, fruity but not fully a true lychee scent. My skin felt hydrated and looked refreshed and brightened. The lychee varietal in each version of the sheet masks have been among my favorite of the brand's sheet mask collection; this one was no exception, though it's more a mask I like than one I'd consider a love. The biggest "con" to the masks in this line is that they continue to contain added fragrance as an ingredient. This isn't a dealbreaker for me, but I wouldn't mind seeing it without added fragrance, though I understand how there's a value for that from a brand based in and a product manufactured in France. In addition to the plusses that the sheet mask offers, a couple "pros" of all of the sheet masks in this line is that the packaging is recyclable and the sheet itself compostable, that latter advancement being good progress for the sustainability aspect of sheet masks. I imagine there may be other brands following suit or coming up with something similar.
 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  I did not know they reformulated this one! I will need to test it out! Sounds amazing. Fingers crossed next reformulating will remove the added fragrance! Mmmm your bowl of lychee looks amazing! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Yes @ather, all the masks in this new range have been reformulated and repacked to be more eco friendly. Oh goodness, that would be something, wouldn't it, if a reformulation did not include added fragrance? All this talk of lychee is making me think I should include some in a smoothie. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi, this is the most encouraging โ€˜mask newsโ€™ I have read in awhile! The completely recyclable packaging is a huge win. My mini in-house sustainability expert has been zoning in on what can/cannot be repurposed, in effect restructuring the way we live (in a positive sense).

 

So far she has not made it to my mask drawer, but it has given me the time to weigh my options. Multipacks are definitely an option, but I think switching it up once in awhile is a necessity. 

I do hope, like you mentioned, other brands will follow suit ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe, it was definitely nice to see this reformulation, both in the blueberry version and this lychee one. Some Kbeauty brands have phased out their sheet mask products altogether, presumably because of sustainability issues and possibly the cost of manufacturing an eco-friendly alternative, and others seem to be making progress with each reformulation or offering. I wouldn't be surprised if we see more sheet masks like these from the Sephora Collection.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Hmm, that news does not surprise me @itsfi. Eco-friendly does seem to imply higher costs (and prices, in many cases).  I will be on the lookout for more of these masks, though. In fact, I suppose I should add this one to my cart now ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi That looks like a nice mask - it's always nice when they stay comfortable to wear that long!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I was pleasantly surprised by this mask @PrettyPaint

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi that looks appetizing 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster, they both were! Nice treats for my face and tummy. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Tonight I needed a little extra R&R and self care. And also maybe a little nudge from my husband! ( he also likes using foot masks)

IMG_0480.jpeg

โ€ƒ
These are the masks I decided to try out tonight! Both are new to me. I love a good foot peeling mask and I am excited to see the results on this one! 

The exfoliating foot mask said to leave on for 60-90 minutes so I left it on for 90 minutes. It said to wash off so I washed it off after the 90 minutes. It says it will start peeling after a few days. So we will wait for the results! 

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DermInfusionsโ„ข Lift + Repair Eye Mask  it says to leave on for 5-10 minutes. I left it on closer to 20 minutes. It says that it brightens and depuffs. It also says that you should use 2 times a week. I didnโ€™t notice a ton of brightness maybe a little. And the de puff I canโ€™t notice but I have some facial swelling going on right now so itโ€™s hard to tell. I will have to test it out again when I am not super swollen!! I would definitely use it again but maybe just as a special treat!

โ€ƒThis is what the booties look like. They are super cute.
