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!

@lmaster 14G, 10B, 7B, 5G. First 2 planned down to the day. 2nd being a Christmas present to the hubs. he wanted a baby I gave a pos test on Dec 23rd. Yea, I'm THAT fertile- I can plan it down to the day. last 2 were surprises, I was on birth control even 2 forms when i got pregnant with my last😬 I always wanted 4 just didnt want them that close-Im high risk during my pregnancies. they are 22 months apart. That was hard having a newborn preemie & a 2 year old. 😲 couldnt imagine having 13 months apart

Re: @lmaster 14G, 10B, 7B, 5G. First 2 planned down to the da...

@sonnydee wow!! That's so sweet though,, we were trying for a girl with the two boys,, didn't happen and DONE!! 🤣 mine are 21B 13G 6B and 5B 

yay! this would be on the only triplets I want @lmaster (...

yay! this would be on the only triplets I want @lmaster (hats off to all those who have them, i wanted twins until I had my first child...changed my mind. it'll be too hard!) 🤰👯

Re: yay! this would be on the only triplets I want @lmaster (...

@sonnydee how far apart are your kids? I have what they call Irish twins 😂 my boys are 13 months apart... 5&6 years old now!! I sooooo remember why my oldest son is 8 years older than my daughter, and my daughter is 7 years older than the little boys. Anxiety through the roof 24/7

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Masking twins! @sonnydee 😊 Glad you also liked it. This is a nice mask to gift for sure (and to use!). 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Love this one, @sonnydee!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@sonnydee too cool you and @l8totheparty were mask twinsies - and for a good mask - double cool!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@sonnydee  This is such a great mask! Glad to hear you enjoyed it too! The cute packaging and pretty mask is definitely a plus! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I’ve haven’t tried this one yet @sonnydee @it’s so pretty! 

I think your dry skin will appreciate it @eshoe thank you...

I think your dry skin will appreciate it @eshoe thank you for sending it my way🤗

This lovely gift was just the thing to help relax and moisturize. It has a cute gold honeycomb pattern on it, and is that the faint scent of honey? It was moisturizing without leaving any tackiness. I'd definitely use one of this again. Thanks, itsfi!

This fun and nourishing mask hit the spot. It was a thicker cotton mask, and my skin must have needed it (hello dehydration! I need to drink more water at home. I have no excuses). It didn't leave any tackiness. Fun mask! 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yaaay! So happy to hear this worked well for you @l8totheparty! 😍 It’s a tried and true favorite of mine❣️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

I can see why! @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@l8totheparty love the kale mask hit the spot!! So cute you are ❤️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Glad to hear these both worked out well for you, @l8totheparty. I love the hydration of the Papa Recipe mask!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@l8totheparty  I love that Papa Recipe mask and the Kale mask sounds great! 😃 I'm curious, what kind of scent did the Kale mask have? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

The kale mask had no discernible scent.  Was there even a fresh scent? Hm, I do not recall. @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

mmmmm fresh veggies @l8totheparty ☺️ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Fresh pressed in a mask for sure 😉 @eshoe 😆

Farmskin Superfood Salad Firming Olive Mask

This is a thin-medium cotton sheet mask that was saturated with a white milky serum and had a light, fresh & clean scent. 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 there was a little tack leftover that took only 10 minutes to absorb. My face felt plump, moisturized, and soft and smooth.

Definitely another great salad mask to add to the list! I really enjoyed this one and would love to use again. I know I'll be repurchasing more of these sets soon, because so far there hasn't been one I haven't liked!
