ARCHIVE: Masks on the Move!

UPDATE: The new thread is up! If you are joining in, or just prefer to sit back and watch, join @lmaster at:


Spring MOTM box will be starting in mid-February. If you are interested in joining, please take a moment to complete the brief survey below prior to January 31st. ***If you have not participated in this or other BIC traveling boxes/unicorn mail, please PM me prior to completing the survey.*** We hope to see and share masks with some new faces!!!


Some pertinent info regarding the NEW double-box-in-progess set-up:

We will have two boxes in process this time. We are currently discussing the box composition and will update once decided what works best for the group.

Two BIC'ers will start off the boxes and they will travel through the shipping order until they make it to the other person at the end. 

CA participants are welcome to join again, we just need to ensure we have enough participants willing to ship in/out of the country. This will affect shipping order; other than that, order will be tentatively arranged by region to help offset shipping costs for participants.

Thank you to all who joined in the last round, we ended up with almost quadruple the original masks, which allowed me to create two new separate boxes (I also added in the extras from the first MOTM). There will be a bag of extras as usual, you all are so generous and make this so much fun!

Looking forward to February:)

Thank you @itsfi for all of your help in setting up the framework for the MOtM, and your many helpful suggestions. The entire masking community here is grateful to you! 


  1. There will be 10 face sheet masks in the packet at all times. you can remove as many or as little as you would like; but there should always be 10 masks moving forward to the next participant. You may add in extras like eye, feet or hand masks, but they will not count toward the 10 masks (they are little bonuses😉). Let's just try to keep a good variety in the box, and if there is an ISO, please be kind and don't take it out as an extra. 'Filler' masks would be great bonus items to take out when there is an overflow. Really! Filler masks would be defined as daily masks, generally ones that can be found at TJ Maxx/Nordstrom Rack/etc. and/or are widely available
  2. How do I ship? Padded flat rate Priority envelopes are great for this, and can be ordered for free on the USPS site. Any packaging is fine, but please take care to ensure the masks are adequately protected. A smaller package will encourage more participation, which in turn makes things more fun! Think cost-effective for those shipping internationally. 
  3. Will this be open to US and Canada? Yes! As long as there is an interest and participants willing to ship, we would love to cross the border. This would be taken into consideration in the shipping order.
  4. Any eligibility requirements? Anyone who is has posted regularly to the previous or current thread is eligible. In addition, if you have been involved in other thread challenges on a regular basis/BIC exchanges such as Holiday, Galentine's or Halloween/traveling boxes, you are also eligible. We love new participants, please PM me if you are interested! 
  5. Approval: To be fair, a minimum of the person receiving the box and 3-4 others will suffice. If at all possible, please take into account any ISO's or skin type when moving the box forward.
  6. Mask Guidelines: The idea is to share your Favorite/Great Finds/Discoveries Masks. Please be considerate and keep in mind this is to give others (and yourself!) an opportunity to try some new and different masks. Let's not send gross masks/masks we just want to get rid of - this is to share our love of masking!
  7. What happens if the box gets lost? USPS provides a $50 insured value for free. If a box is lost in transit, you are responsible for shipping an additional box to the next participant. Declaring a $50 value ensures that you would be reimbursed by USPS in the event your package is lost; however this is a lengthy process and thus it would be your responsibility to keep the flow of the boxes moving by curating a new box and shipping it out as quickly as possible.
  8. How does the order work? I will use a random generator; if there are Canadian participants I would need to take that into consideration depending on how many people would be willing to ship in/out of country.


Re: Masks on the Move!

Thanks @eshoe  for gathering all the info. I don't really have a top 3 or am ISO anything in particular. I'll be happy and am sure I can find anything in the stash to find. Excited!

Re: Masks on the Move!

You’re welcome @GalPalVal17, I hope everyone has fun 😊

Re: Masks on the Move!

@eshoe  I like the suspense, but I do think it would be nice for people to take pictures when they get the package and maybe of what they choose to keep.

Re: Masks on the Move!

Thank you for the feedback, @emaisgr8! That is an excellent idea to take a pic of the package once it’s received and once everything is traded out. I don’t anticipate any issues with this group but it’s a good rule of thumb/habit to get into, especially if it there is a next go-round and it expands.

I think my top 3 ISO(I would buy myself if my mask stash...

I think my top 3 ISO(I would buy myself if my mask stash wasnt so large currently....) 1. A'pieu milk mask (tried & really liked chocolate so any other flavor) 2. BioRepublic I have Pomegranate - would like to try others 3. any Peach slices sheet mask (they're not at my CVS😥)

Re: I think my top 3 ISO(I would buy myself if my mask stash...

@sonnydee  lol I always think of those masks as flavors too ! It's totally forbidden food like you can't taste it but the smells make me want to!

Re: I think my top 3 ISO(I would buy myself if my mask stash...

Oh i totally didn't even see that @Kim888! 🤣🤗 at least yall understand what I mean! I had to go back & re read what I typed!

Re: I think my top 3 ISO(I would buy myself if my mask stash...

Got it, thank you @sonnydee

like the suspense.! 😎🧐 what about adding iso (like top 3)for the participants or have we already suggested that? @eshoe

Re: like the suspense.! 😎🧐 what about adding iso (like top...

Great idea @sonnydee! I will add that to the OP. Please reply or PM me with your top 3 ISO all! @heartsmyface @lmaster @missjeanie @Kim888 @GalPalVal17 @emaisgr8 @Shosh85 

Re: like the suspense.! 😎🧐 what about adding iso (like top...

I really do not have a top 3. There are so many great masks that I'm sure I will have plenty to choose from. I'm looking forward to trying some of everyone else's favorites. 🙂 @eshoe 

Re: like the suspense.! 😎🧐 what about adding iso (like top...

Thanks for the feedback @emaisgr8!

Re: like the suspense.! 😎🧐 what about adding iso (like top...

@eshoe 👍

Re: Masks on the Move!

This mask “ train” thing is an excellent idea , what a neat  way to try new things . I would definitely be interested in participating next time ( I believe I missed the cut off for this one , it was yesterday )  

Re: Masks on the Move!

Thank you @RRilla, I hope you stick around, if all goes well we might try it again sometime! 

Re: Masks on the Move!

Ok I have an order for our masks! I will be sending preferences via PM, just to keep in mind when sending to the next person on the list. I would post here but for privacy think PM is best 🙂


I will be shipping out this week. Order is as follows:


  1. @eshoe  to @Kim888 
  2. @Kim888 to @sonnydee 
  3. @sonnydee to @lmaster 
  4. @lmaster to @GalPalVal17 
  5. @GalPalVal17 to @missjeanie 
  6. @missjeanie to @heartsmyface 
  7. @heartsmyface to @Shosh85 
  8. @Shosh85 to @emaisgr8 
  9. @emaisgr8 to @eshoe 

Let me know if you have any questions, this is the first go-round so it's all new for me too:) 

Re: Masks on the Move!

@eshoe can we have a quick procedural run down of what to do when we get the package? It's my first time doing a traveling box and since I'm first need some insight! Should I post the entire contents of the envelope and then request permission for what I want to take out and put in? or should I just share what I am hoping to swap?

Re: Masks on the Move!

If I may, in past TSBs people were asked to take photos of all the products that arrived for accountability purposes.   That way if something went wrong along the way it was easier to track where things went awry.  It was more to cover peoples butts if products were tested along the way,  I doubt we’ll have problems with this group or with a mask box, but it may be something to do on the dl and only share if there’s a problem.  @eshoe 

Re: Masks on the Move!

I agree @heartsmyface, I think it’s a

good idea to post pics as well! I don’t anticipate any issues either; I think limiting it to sheet masks makes it easier. Plus that’s all I’m really interested in 😄


Re: Masks on the Move!

@Kim888 I'm kinda new to this too, I have only participated in one other TSB but it was a large box! @CC3616 organized it and did a fabulous job. Here is the link:


My thoughts were that each person could take out as many or as little as they wanted, and replace that same amount of masks. That way there are always 10 masks in the box. We posted our trades on the other one, but it was kind of different since it was a variety of products/sizes. Maybe we don't even need to post our trades; although I think some people might be interested. I think that could totally be up to the group!


Once you have the masks you want out of the package, and have posted a pic if everyone thinks that is a good idea, contact the next person via PM for address (I do not have everyone's yet) and provide them a tracking # once you have it. 

Re: Masks on the Move!

@eshoe I peeked in on that traveling group while it was happening just because I was curious how it worked. Im so happy you thought of doing a mask version! I definitely like the idea of taking the "in and out" photos! So excited for this! 😍🙌
