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!

Mask Hacks - Here are a few to get started thanks to our lovely BIC-ers, a big thank you for these fabulous ideas!

Squeeze tube lip balms (like Bite) into pans and place in magnetic palette

sonnydee

Layer lip sleeping mask (such as Laneige) over regular balm

cianni

Derma plane prior to a peel-off mask to ease the pain of removal

Warm water helps remove clay masks quicker than cold

cianni

Lay sheet masks flat prior to use so the serum is more evenly distributed 

eshoe 

Remove clay/difficult masks in the shower to keep towel clean and removal easy

itsfi/BIC

Use an HA serum prior to trying a mask with alcohol high on the ingredients list

keana1

Use a Makeup Eraser to remove wash-off masks

lmaster

With a detox mask, apply a thicker layer where pores are

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

Well, that's a bright side that you won't have to buy masks from them if you know they haven't turned out very good @emaisgr8. Though I do love the warning "THIS IS NOT FOOD. DO NOT EAT." I know there are many masks that smell good enough to eat. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

That tickled me too @ShortErica . It makes you wonder what happened for them to include that statement.

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

โ€œ I am finding that I do not like this brand.โ€


lol at this, @emaisgr8, and your nails are absolutely STUNNING๐Ÿคฉ

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

Too bad about the mask, @emaisgr8 but your nails look gorgeous!

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @quspork !

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

Such a shame! Super cute mask packaging tho @emaisgr8 

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

@emaisgr8  I definitely don't care for masks with small mouth holes. It makes me feel anxious/suffocated for some reason. Your nails are incredible. Love them! 

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @PrettyPaint 

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

Adorable! The packaging and your nails! @emaisgr8 

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thankyou @missy415 

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

@emaisgr8 Oh my goodness, I LOVE your nails! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’…

Sorry to hear this one wasn't so great. The packaging is super cute though - goes great with your nails! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŽ„

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @Shosh85 !

Farmskin Superfood Salad Softening Avocado Mask

This is a thin-medium cotton sheet mask that was saturated with a white milky serum. The scent was light and was sort of a mix of fresh & clean and floral. It had a great fit - it was just a little too long at the chin and the eye holes were just slightly too small for my preference. I kept it on for about a half hour. When I removed it I massaged in the creamy serum and it wasn't sticky or tacky at all. My face looked brighter, felt comfortably hydrated, soft and smooth and had a nice glow.

Another great salad mask to add to the list! I really enjoyed this one and would definitely repurchase!46C73575-5E32-47BF-B04E-3DCBC728E4AA.jpeg

 

 

 

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

This Farmskin sounds like my kind of mask, @Shosh85 - that serum! Lately Iโ€™ve been running into more masks with smaller eye openings, Iโ€™m pretty sure it is just a coincidence but I am ready for a change of pace;)

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  These salad masks are all turning out great so far! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Definitely loved the serum on this one! Have you tried any of these masks yet?

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

I have, I think a tomato one @Shosh85. I have the carrot one yet that @faeriegirl gifted me. Iโ€™m excited to use it!

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I tried the blueberry and tomato and gave them both A grades and still have the carrot to use!

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

Maybe we can try it together @ShortErica!

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sounds good @eshoe!

Re: 2020 Q1 Mask of the Week Challenge

The consistency of the serum sounds so nice on this one @Shosh85
