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:

Spoiler
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 FebruarySmiley Happy

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!

I'm pretty easy going with this @eshoe @lmaster .  Whatever works best for everyone else.  I don't have a ton of high end masks, maybe three or four, but again... What's considered high end?  In my usual purchasing I consider 6$ and up higher end for one mask, but then I do have a few that run 20$ ish a mask. (Lets be real here people, I only buy those with a good discount!)

Re: Masks on the Move!

@missjeanie I need to know where you find a good discount on a great pricey mask!  

Re: Masks on the Move!

@l8totheparty @Always watching for a sale lol! I only have a few over the 20$ mark. But I’ve been tempted into maybe a dozen or so over the 7$. But my favourites are still the under a dollars masks!!

Re: Masks on the Move!

We are considering high end anything over 7$ @missjeanie 

Re: Masks on the Move!

Over $7! Hmm, indeed. I have at least one of those then. Here I fretted that they would be over $20 each (can't trade on those! Haha). 

@lmaster 

This will be exciting!

Re: Masks on the Move!

Oh okay... that's not so bad... I've got more of those ones @lmaster ! lol

Re: Masks on the Move!

We are going to put the luxe masks in their own pouch @missjeanie, that will also help avoid any uncertainty about a mask’s valueSmiley Happy @lmaster 

Re: Masks on the Move!

@eshoe @lmaster @@Awesome idea!!

Re: Masks on the Move!

@eshoe @missjeanie sounds like an excellent plan!

Re: Masks on the Move!

That's a good idea, @eshoe 😊

Re: Masks on the Move!

Lux- over how much $ would that entail/mask to be considered lux? Curious!  😊 

 

Also, is there an option to just participate in the one box- nourishing/glow option?? I don't want to make it difficult, but if there are 2 boxes anyways....?

I may not have any super lux masks. Besides that, just throwing this out there, if anyone receiving the pkg into/out of Canada/USA on a $$$ pkg of pricy masks (10x$20+ per mask for example) gets dinged for duty it would really suck. And to insure on a $$$ pkg for $50 and for it to go missing in transit would make me ill if I was the one (obviously the sender should have to cover and resend, but ouch$ you know?). Anyone have insite into this? Thoughts? 

 

I respect any decisions made. 

 

@eshoe @lmaster 

 

Re: Masks on the Move!

@l8totheparty @ShortErica @lmaster thank you for weighing in! It sounds like it might be better to do two envelopes, both identical in that they have close to the same ratio/blend of different types of masks.

 

That way no one feels pressured to contribute any one type of mask, and more people can be involved. So, to reiterate: two envelopes (not boxes), each with 20 masks including some of each type, so that both boxes have a similar selection/value.

Re: Masks on the Move!

@eshoe I think that's what I was thinking. Having a variety should get the most participation. 🤞 And as always posting should ensure like to like trades. Will 20 fit in an envelope?

Re: Masks on the Move!

Yes, I think a bubble wrap mailer will hold up to 40 if packed neatly @ShortErica!

Re: Masks on the Move!

Awesome @eshoe! I feel like lately I've used boxes and didn't remember how big the envelope was.

Re: Masks on the Move!

It has always been important to me to keep it to an envelope at max, @ShortErica. I want it to be accessible to anyone who wants to join, so if we work to keep shipping down, anyone who wants to, can @lmaster 

Re: Masks on the Move!

Totally agree @eshoe @ShortErica 

Re: Masks on the Move!

I know what you mean. I dont have many or possibly any luxe masks @l8totheparty. And I didn't think about the duty in Canada.

 

@eshoe @lmaster so 20 masks in each box? We are moving out of the envelopes? Is signing up for both boxes or can you do one vs. the other? I guess I assumed it would be one theme with two boxes going opposite directions on the list of participants. Like l8totheparty said though, you're the bosses and I defer to you. 😊

Re: Masks on the Move!

Re: Masks on the Move!

@eshoe  Thanks so much for the tag! I am trying to catch up on reading posts now - totally behind. 

Re: Masks on the Move!

I appreciate the tag @eshoe!  I've got a lot going on for the next couple of months, so I'm going to have to pass on this round, but may jump in on a future one.  Smiley Happy
