Mask of the Week Challenge!

Hello Lovelies! As we make our resolutions and check them twice, I thought we could start a skincare version of the Weekly Challenge. Many of us wanted to use more masks, shop our stash and focus on our Skin so hopefully this thread will be an inspiration to do just that. Join us with pictures and comments down below.

 

Masking Spreadsheet Info

Spoiler

Hello every, @eshoe and I are very happy to present the BIC Masking Challenge Spreadsheet. The idea is to have an easily searchable database of masks and reviews as a reference point when we are considering our next purchase. Data integrity was important to us so instead of everyone inputing data directly into the spreadsheet where theoretically information could be deleted or edited we have the questionnaire. It should take no longer then 1-2 minutes with the option for a more detailed review (which you can copy from your post on this thread).

 

Remember the idea is not to replace this thread. I personally love reading, commenting and interacting with all you amazing women here and that shouldn’t change. This would just be on top of that. Hopefully the more people that partake in this, the larger database of information we’ll have for reference. It will be extra effort in the beginning but then we would only need to input any new mask we’ve tried.

 

Additional Info:

Since we aren’t allowed to post links, please PM @eshoe or myself for it. You will also find this information on the original post so you don’t need a database to search for this post!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This morning I multi masked. I used my Devacurl Heaven in Hair moisturizing Mask under a heating cap. While sitting I used Miss Spa Chocolate self heating clay mask along with Kokostar Lip Mask in mint. 

I was disappointed with the Chocolate Mask. It had no scent and so far I am not noticing any difference. With all of the discounts at CVS these masks came to a little over $3.00 for 3 masks. I still feel some moisture from the lip mask so that is good. The Devacurl Heaven in Hair Mask is my go to hair mask which helps my wavy/swavy hair.

This thread has inspired me to book an appointment for a facial. My girlfriend recently started working at a spa so she told me of a special for the month of August for a facial and dermaplaining. I have an appointment for next week so I am sure this help greatly help my skin needs. I have not had a facial in at least 10 years so I am really looking foward to it. I have never tried dermaplaining either.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I have never had a facial or dermaplaning but I want to experience each at some point in my life! Smiley Happy Hope you have a relaxing experience! @Loretta55

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Look into getting a facial at a beauty school for a reasonably priced facial @SchylarR. All the students are supervised. When my mom was alive we would get our pampering done at various beauty schools in her area.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ohhhh @Loretta55 a facial sounds amazing!  I've never had dermaplaning done but a facial sounds lovely - you can lie down, close your eyes, relax/fall asleep and leave refreshed with calm, brighter, smoother and softer skin!  Smiley Happy  Enjoy your facial!!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you @itsfi! I hope afterwards I will not receive a hard sell to purchase additional products.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Fingers crossed🤞🏼 🤞🏼no hard sell for products after the facial, @Loretta55. I appreciate they need to run a business but sometimes the full on sales pitch is too much. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I agree @itsfi!!!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

That is fantastic that you are going to have some pampering at the spa, @Loretta55! I’m on the same facial schedule as you😂, once every few years or so. It sounds like your skin is giving you some of the same trouble mine is giving me, so I am really curious to see if the dermaplaning helps alleviate it!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I will keep up posted if the facial and dermaplaining helps to alleviate the problems @eshoeAlso I need about 6 larger pimples extracted that I believe I caused from my hair products.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Loretta55

Thanks for the heads up on the Miss Spa Chocolate mask. It's disappointing when a chocolate mask has no scent and doesn't give any results!!🤨 I've been getting facials again since I found a great esthetician that uses some great products!! I haven't ever had dermaplaning, but really enjoy the other available options! Look forward to how it goes for you!! Glad you get good results from the Devacurl mask!😊

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I have been noticing my foundation clinging to certain areas of my face that have small areas of fine hairs on my face. I am hoping the combination of the facial and dermaplaining helps to resolve that problem @yankeefaithful.

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Loretta55 Thats some awesome multi-masking!! I've heard great things about that Deva Curl! Glad to hear you liked it! 👌 

Masks are "hit or miss" sometimes! -not every mask that works for one person is necessarily gonna work the same way for another. 😉 Sorry to hear the Chocolate mask was a bit of a flop! I've tried a couple of the "Miss Spa" brand masks too and did not find them too impressive either. Whenever I see "chocolate" in the title on these masks, I'm reeeally hoping it smells like chocolate too! Haha! 🍫

I hope you enjoy your facial and dermaplaning! It sounds fabulous!👌🤗

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I agree about the Miss Spa masks @Shosh85. I purchased a lip mask that would not even stay on my lips. It fell on the floor when I moved so I felt gyped by that mask. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

For Friday's masking, I decided to go with what I know – the Dr. Jart+ V7 Toning Sheet Mask, which is one of my go-to masks for brightening and moisture, and the Sephora Collection hand and foot masks because the hands and feet need some TLC too!  Smiley Wink

Spoiler

I may have talked about the Dr. Jart+ mask before so I’ll briefly sum it up here –   this is a lightweight cotton brightening sheet mask with a creamy, milky essence. It has a subtle, fresh, citrus scent, and fits and adheres well to my face. Those allergic to certain facial oils or who have sensitive skin should definitely check the ingredients list as this mask contains a lot of oils.

This sheet mask touts the benefits of 7 good-for-your-skin vitamins (hence, the “V7” in the name) and white jade. I did some research on the 7 vitamins included in this mask and summarized the information below – if there’s anything that’s not right or that I’m missing, please chime in.

Vitamin

Skin Benefits

A

Encourages healthy skin cell production, slows down signs of aging and protects against UV damage

B3

Another name for niacinamide, which is known for its brightening properties

B5

Keeps skin soft, supple and hydrated

C

Promotes a brighter complexion and protects against sun damage and polluaging

E

Protects against sun damage, blocks free radicals and has anti-aging benefits

H

Also known as biotin, this vitamin helps protect against sun damage and protects against water loss in the skin

White Jade

Brightens and evens skin tone

 

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Great masking combo! Smiley Happy Also, thanks for the extra information/research! Super interesting! @itsfi

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

My pleasure, @SchylarR! It was fun learning about the different vitamins in this mask and what skincare benefit each provides. ☺️

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This Dr. Jart mask sounds great, @itsfi, especially if you buy it Costco style😆! Thank you for including all of the info on it as well, you are always so helpful. The essence sounds nice, too. I have one more Dr. Jart mask to try during the challenge but I may pick this one up-wondering if you think this could be a morning mask or if it is too rich for that?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Aww, thank you @eshoe. So kind of you to say. ☺️  I think morning masking with the V7 mask would be great. The serum isn’t very heavy, it’s just that it’s creamy and there’s a lot of it. Nothing bad about that, it may take some time for it to fully absorb though. Interested to hear how it works for you.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi This looks like the perfect TLC trifecta! Love those foot and hand masks! I'd never heard of that Dr. Jart mask! 7 vitamins in one mask certainly sounds great! I'll have to add this on my list of future purchases!! 🙌😉

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 the hand and feet masks are fantastic! I still want to try wearing the foot masks overnight like @bakeamuffin did when she used them, but I keep forgetting to.  

 

The V7 mask is one of my favorite brightening sheet masks ! It's one of the masks I buy in bulk now. Smiley Wink
