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!

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@l8totheparty  Awe! Sounds like such a fun masking session! Glad everyone enjoyed their masks! These really are some great masks! 😃

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I’m so glad you liked the BioBelle mask @l8totheparty!

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Loved that you had a family masking sesh @l8totheparty! 💕 How fun! 😊 Great mask choices too! 👍🏼 

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

What a fun family time @l8totheparty !

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Sounds like other than the tackiness you all had some good masking @l8totheparty 

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@l8totheparty awwww that sounds like a blast!! 

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

It really was!  We relaxed and masked. 🎄🎄😊😊 @lmaster 

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I tried to get into the holiday spirit with my masking thanks to @missjeanie 

 

First up was this elf mask

The fit was awkward on both masks. Especially the eye area. I was able to place the snowman one better - yay experience?! They were also long on the forehead and chin. I guess I shouldn't complain about masks being short on the forehead because long seemed weird. The elf one did not stay put on the chin area which was sad.

 

But onto the better. This was a medium cotton mask that was fine in terms of comfort. It had a typical mask scent which is always cool with me. I'm not into heavy fragrance. Both masks were moist with serum. I wore them 20 minutes then folded and placed on my neck.

 

The serum on my face absorbed pretty quickly. The elf mask did help some with my lines. The snowman made my skin look fresh. No wow factors but nice masks. Neither left any tack for me. There was a little extra serum to apply on my face and neck.

 

I'd say B. The fit was the most distracting part and using scissors would have helped that. And if only the theme on the front was also on the mask..then they'd up the cuteness factor and get a B+. Thanks @missjeanie for two doses of holiday cheer!

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

The Snowman mask is so good to my skin, @ShortErica but that fit. Maybe we will all be pleasantly surprised and their holiday masks this year will fit like a dream;) Happy New Year!

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yes, low expectations and possible improvement sounds like a good way to look at it @eshoe. Happy New Year to you too!

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@ShortErica  The Creme Shop is pretty notorious for ill-fitting masks. They really should make the mask itself an Elf or Snowman! That always bumps the grade up for me too 😉 Glad these turned out decent for you! Love the holiday theme! ☃️

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

The creme shop = surgery @Shosh85 - got it!

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Holiday cheer for everyone! @ShortErica 

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

So cute, I'm glad they were fine masks. @ShortErica 

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @emaisgr8!

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@ShortErica  well the packaging is super cute 😉 TCS really comes out with some cute holiday packaging. At least they were decent. 

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I know @GalPalVal17! The package had me fooled the mask would also have a design.

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Biore stuff ahead..only for those interested..

 Last week I tried this mask for Holiday masking. I chose this mask hoping it would put some bounce back in my skin. I love the holiday packaging. This mask definitely had a strong fragrance. It helped some, but I would not buy it again due to the fragrance. 

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ugh added fragrance can really ruin a masking session @emaisgr8, sorry to hear this one ha dot abundantly 😆 the giraffe is very cute, though!

 

Happy New Year to you!

Re: UPDATE: 2020 Q1/2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@emaisgr8  too bad on the strong scent. I totally understand you as I don't like ones that have such strong scents. It can sometimes take away from the experience. I laughed at the packaging "This is not food. Do not eat". Ya know, just in case.. lol.
