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!


Summer Sunshine -
Ice cream ๐Ÿฆ , sunglasses ๐Ÿ˜Ž , SPF ๐Ÿงด, check! Once the sun is down (or before it's up), extra care is most necessary. How do you give your skin cooling repair?

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?

Bought this one because it had the word "chocolate" in the title. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿซ

Volition Chocolate Macadamia Hydrating Mask

 

This is a thick and creamy, brown wash off mask.

It smells wonderful- like chocolate cake mix or brownie batter. Seriously smells so delicious! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿซ

It felt and looked like I was smearing chocolate pudding on my face.๐Ÿ™‚ (Of course my husband said it looked like feces and now calls it my "poop mask.") ๐Ÿ˜‚
I had it on for about a half hour and it did not dry down or harden. It stayed soft and flexible so my face felt comfortable the whole time.
It was pretty easy to wash off, but a wash cloth made it easier. My face felt super soft and smooth and my skin tone looked more even/brighter. My face was a tad dry, which is normal for me, but it was definitely a lot less dry compared to most wash-off/clay masks - I didn't feel like I had to rush for the moisturizer.

 

I really loved this mask, and will definitely continue to use it! The scent alone makes it worth it to me!

@Shosh85, I waaaant this! ๐Ÿ˜ I really shouldnโ€™t pick up another clay mask but the scent is making it really hard to pass on it! ๐Ÿซ 

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

@itsfi  Haha! It's hard to say no to chocolate! ๐Ÿซ ๐Ÿคค

This was a lovely mask, my only critique is the lasting tackiness.

I think I found this in a pack at Marshalls

 

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

@lmaster  I don't mind some tack, but sometimes it's just too much! Definitely sounds like a great one to try as a makeup primer!

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

Ahhh, Marshalls. A helpful but also dangerous place when it comes to sheet masks @lmaster. The ingredients on this one sound great but that lasting tackiness is a bummer.

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

@itsfi it's funny because when I apply moisturizer like I usually do, it doesn't bother me, this time I waited in hopes I wouldn't need to, but the tackiness thought otherwise ๐Ÿ˜†

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

@lmaster  I like the sound of those ingredients - too bad about the tackiness though. Hope you enjoyed it otherwise!

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

It was good @caitbird I just wasn't planning on it being so sticky however it could be a great primer mask before makeup 

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

@lmaster  that's a great idea to make the mask work for you, I love that!

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

This looks lovely! I hope you enjoyed, minus the tackiness part! Itโ€™s always a nice treat โค๏ธ @lmaster

June 2024 Masks

6.2024 Masks 3.jpg

Anua Heartleaf Cream Mask Night Solution

Spoiler
TL;DR: Thin-leaning microfiber sheet covered in a not too thin, not too thick, unscented, cream serum that feels luxuriously soothing and moisturizing against the skin. Left mask on my currently dry and dehydrated skin for about an half hour and was left with soft, smooth, supple, soothed & nourished skin. Highly recommend for those with dry, very dry, or normal skin with adjustment to wear time, as needed. Those with combination or oily skin will likely fare  better with this mask in the cooler winter months. 
 
I had high hopes for the Anua Heartleaf Cream Mask Night Solution and it met my expectations. The thin-leaning microfiber sheet holds a not too thin, not too thick, unscented, cream serum that feels luxuriously soothing and moisturizing against the skin. Fit will be a personal matter but this is wide and long (extra long) enough to cater to many different face shapes and sizes. The openings for the eyes and mouth are sufficiently wide and the amount of material covering the nose bridge (between the inner eyes) and the philtrum (above upper lip) areas are generally good. Thirty minutes on my uncharacteristically dry skin this time of year was exactly what I needed - soft, smooth, supple, soothed and nourished skin
 
This one is a beauty, one I would highly recommend, especially for those with dry, very dry or normal skin (with adjustments to wear time, as needed). Those with oily skin may find this to perform best for them in the winter months. This mask is comparable to Dr. Jart+ Ceramidinโ„ข Cream-Infused Mask 0.63 oz / 18 ml  and the Lancome Renergie Lift Hydrating Sheet Mask, both of which are ones I also really enjoy.

Dior Capture Dreamskin 1-Minute Mask 2.5 oz / 75 mL 

Spoiler
The name says it all - one-minute dream skin - in as little as one minute, my skin is left feeing lightly hydrated, soft and smooth, not tight or dry, and looking fresh and brightened. This contains glycolic acid but is gentle and effective. A little goes a long way. Great for prepping skin before applying makeup. 

A Medley of Masks

Spoiler
fresh Umbrian Clay Pore Purifying Face Mask is a quick and easy (5 minutes) mask for decongesting pores and smoothing skin. Great for a weekly all over mask or for spot treating pesky pimples.
 
Bath &Body Works Champagne Toast Lip Mask is a pink tinted cream with finely milled granules for gentle exfoliation.
 
The thicker consistency of and nourishing ingredients in the Jack Black NightModeโ„ข Lip Treatment 0.25 oz / 7 mL work together to soften and nourish lips overnight.
 
Another great overnight product is the LANEIGE Bouncy + Firm Radiance Boosting Sleeping Mask 2 oz / 60 ml  - my favorite from this sleeping mask collection remains the cica version but this cherry blossom one does a lovely job of softening, soothing and moisturizing skin while you sleep. It has a floral scent that I found pleasant but if you're sensitive to fragrance, this one might not be for you.
 
K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Mini Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask 0.5 oz/ 15 mL (gratis) delivers wonderful results in less than 5 minutes - my hair consistently looks and feels bouncy, silky smooth and shiny after every use. This one is a keeper.

 

Superegg Calm Movements Eye & Cheek Mask

Spoiler
My under eye and cheek area are prone to dryness and this Superegg Calm Movements Eye & Cheek Mask does a nice job of soothing, depuffing and lightly hydrating those areas, with just one use, too (although results are temporary). The hydrogel adheres well to the skin and feels cooling on contact. Great for travel.

 

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

@itsfi  So many good ones here! The Anua mask sounds especially wonderful! Glad to hear the results were so great! 

How did I not know B&BW had a lippie in Champagne Toast! ๐Ÿ˜ณ That is my favorite B&BW scent! Will definitely need to pick that one up! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

@itsfi  ooh, sounds like a wonderful collection of masks! I definitely don't need any more masks at the moment lol, but I will be noting down some of these for future reference! Thanks for sharing your thoughts + info on them all!

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

"I definitely don't need any more masks at the moment" ~ heehee @caitbird ๐Ÿคฃ I feel like it might be easier sometimes to just list the beauty products or category that our collections could use more products, but then I would be thinking for an awfully long time trying to figure out what that might be. Hahahaha! Curious to know, do you prefer wash off masks or sheet masks? Or both? 

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

@itsfi  you and me both ๐Ÿคฃ Hmm, I don't know if I really have a preference? I try to rotate in a clay mask, an overnight mask, and a sheet mask fairly regularly (operative word being "try" ๐Ÿ˜…), since they all kind of have different benefits (and of course there are so many different types of sheet mask, too). I do like that with sheet masks, it's easier to try different ones more frequently, whereas I try not to have too many "tub" masks open at once (operative word being "try" again lol), so I tend to work through the same couple for a while.

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

Beautiful collection of masks @itsfi  im glad so many worked out, I like how you included hair masks too. Very informative! Thank you for sharing ๐Ÿซถโค๏ธ 

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

@peculiarzmakeup, the whole masking thing is a head-to-toe affair. ๐Ÿคฃ Not always a head-to-toe sesh all the time; actually rarely, but it's great to have a mask for every part of the body. ๐Ÿ˜ Hair masks are great; one of those things that I didn't know I needed (or would enjoy) until I tried my first one and then ... well, I'm sure you and others here know or will come to know how that story goes. Our lovely @lmaster has used and shared some fabulous masks over the years - her hair is gorgeous so her thoughts on hair masks are certainly worth noting. 

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

Wonderful! I recently used the Oribe Gold Lust Transformative Hair Mask 5 oz/ 150 mL  it was so amazing. I hope I come to know your experience. And you and @lmaster always have amazing suggestions I love being inspired by everyone here at BIC โค๏ธ @itsfi
