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.

 

Rules

Spoiler
Each week there will be a new Masking Challenge posted. It will range from type of mask, brand specific week or fun challenges along the way.
How To: Choose mask, take picture (with mask on or before), place mask on face, relax and dream of the next Sephora purchase you want to make, remove mask for healthier skin.
Most Important: Have Fun!!

P.S. If you have any suggestions or challenge recommendations feel free to message me and I'll add them to the list.

Sephora Aloe vera face mask and Sol de Janeiro bath bombSephora Aloe vera face mask and Sol de Janeiro bath bomb

 Happy Saturday 😄 This evening I really wanted to relax and unwind so I drew a bath and grabbed the Sol de Janeiro bath bomb and my Aloe Vera sheet mask 🛀🏻 I love masking after a hot steamy bath or shower because it really opens
up my pores so the mask can reach it’s full potential ☺️

Spoiler
Aloe Vera Face Mask
This mask claims it will moisturize and plump skin for a more elastic looking, smooth surface. This mask was easy to unfold and peel away from the plastic baking, I’m clumsy so I’m always afraid of ripping my mask, this one did not rip 😄 It was easy to get in place on my face and the package contained quite a bit of serum, so I massaged the excess on my neck, chest, and shoulders. This serum dried down slightly tacky, almost sticky, but not enough to bother me. The instructions say up leave on for 15 minutes, but at that time the mask was still very damp so I kept it on for another 10 minutes. At that point I was done with this mask, and it was done with me (it began bagging up and looking like elephant skin 🐘  hahaha) After removing the mask and allowing my face to dry, my skin felt replenished, fresh, and very soft, but I did need to apply a nice layer of moisturizer as my skin began to feel dry and only slightly tight (although my skin typically feels like this, it drinks up all of my moisturizer and serums!). Over all I did enjoy this mask and would use it again, but I’ll definitely be trying out the Rose and Coconut masks first because they look like they may be more moisturizing😊

Before bed I’ll also be using my Laneige Water Sleeping mask; I discovered this mask in 2018 (as part of the challenge) I hate that it contains silicone but this one doesn’t bother my skin. When I use it, I always wake up with soft, plump, glowy skin. It reduces redness, helps with dry spots and makes my skin feel soft. I really love it 😍💦

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@bakeamuffin It looks like you had a soothing and relaxing night!! The bath bomb looks great for a hot, summer night and the mask looks interesting! I haven't tried the Sephora AloeVera mask but have been pleasantly surprised by the Pearl and Pomegranate ones. I too love the Laneige Sleep mask. It helped so much this past winter, but not sure how my skin would do during this hot, humid weather! Thanks for the great reviews and enjoy your soft skin!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Great review @bakeamuffin; thank you!  Aloe is one of my favorite skincare ingredients.  And, my skin loves the Laneige water sleeping mask - so hydrating and leaves my skin soft and supple.  <3 <3 <3  

 

The bath bomb is so pretty - your bathroom must smell amazing!!!  Sol de Janeiro did a fantastic job with that scent!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Awe thank you @itsfi ☺️ <3 I had your wonderful reviews in mind when I wrote this one, I was hoping it would come across as thorough 😄

I’m so glad to hear your skin love the Water Sleeping mask too! It’s such a staple in my skincare routine, I couldn’t live with just samples and DS sizes, it’s definitely worth spending the money on (and it’s toly reasonably priced!)

 

They totally did! It’s the perfect summer scent! ☀️ I don’t know how I’ll find a Winter scent that even compares to how good this is! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you for such kind words @bakeamuffin!  I LOVE sleeping masks - the Laneige one was the first one I tried; I purchased it at Target back when they carried the brand. The Glow Recipe watermelon one is nice too. 

 

I have faith in you @bakeamuffin - you'll find a fabulous scent for the winter when it comes time for it.  Smiley Happy 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I really like the Sephora brand masks, @bakeamuffin. But MOST IMPORTANTLY- how was the bath bomb???

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@scott1201 it was wonderful 💚💙 it smelled so amazing, our whole upstairs smells like pistachio and salted caramel cheirosa ’62 now, and it’s HEAVENLY 😍 When I put it in the water it stayed near the surface and really fizzed! It turned my

 bath a beautiful turquoise colour and left me with some bath foam 😄

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I woke up early and decided to make the most of the peaceful time with some masking. MY skin 🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽 has been pretty good recently with a more minimalist skincare routine but I felt like a spot coming and decided to go all in.

Odacite Synergie [4] - Discovered 2018: This is my second time using it and I officially like it. Firstly I think you need a lot more then a teaspoon of powder and a lot less water to get it to a consistency that is easily spreadable. I ended up with a lot of mask but I just applied it down to my décolletage. I've been vary of trying Apple Cider Vinegar as the liquid mixing agent, but it recommends it so I might try that next time.

REN Glycol Lactic Mask - Discovered 2017: I discovered this after @GG84 raved about it and and its a great 'radiance' or 'acid' based masks. I think I prefer this to DE Babyfacial but I haven't compared them properly so I'm not sure. I do know my skin really likes glycolic acid, and since I've added the Paula Choice BHA 2% Gel into my morning routine my skin has been looking great.

Fresh Rose Mask - Discovered 2017: I've had a sample of this for ages but avoided it as I don't love the smell of roses. I discovered this last year through BIC and enjoy the cooling, calming and hydrating feeling once removed. I probably won't buy a full size but will definitely use points to stock up on samples.

TCFS Abracadabra Eye Mask - Discovered 2018: I love this! Not only does it fit well and look cool (think Madam of 
Zoro) my eye area feels really hydrated and refreshed after using this. If you can find one (I got it from RoseRosedotcom) I'd recommend trying it out.

I'm in this evening and I'm going to settle in to watch a movie and use another sheet mask and the Sephora foot mask. Happy Days =)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Aaliaa. I'm glad you're getting to mask!!The eye mask looks like it is one I need and would like!! Thanks for the great reviews!! Enjoy your movie!!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @yankeefaithful! I love all English period films/shows so I'm rewatching 'Elizabeth' with Cate Blanchett. I can definitely recommend the TCFC mask, I originally tried it after @heartsmyface posted about it in this thread.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

What a fun and fabulous menu of masks @Aaliaa!! <3 <3 <3  I'm intrigued by the Odacite mask. You mentioned apple cider vinegar - is the Odacite Synergie a detox mask?  That Too Cool For School masks looks like a lot of fun! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @itsfi! It was really fun to do and made morning chores a little more pleasurable! Its a really interesting mask, it contain four main components, the info below is from their website. It comes with a little recipe book for recommendations on what you can add depending on which 'synergy' you want to focus on. I've so far tried it with water and the Hada Labo Gokugyun and worked well for both.

 

SYNERGIE[1] DETOX & PURIFY PORES :The synergy of Clay + Activated Charcoal works diligently on your skin, leaving your pores visibly refined and free of blemishes. 

SYNERGIE[2] PEEL : The synergy of Enzymes + Fruit Acids works instantly to slough off dead skin cells, encouraging fresh new ones to the surface for a fresh, healthy glow. 

SYNERGIE[3] BRIGHTEN & EVEN OUT SKIN TONE: The fast-acting synergy of Vitamin C + Enzymes fades hyperpigmentation and prevents brown spots, revealing a radiant and even skin tone. 

SYNERGIE[4]  FIRM: The synergy of Vitamin C + Probiotics works in duo to boost collagen synthesis, providing the skin with the support it needs to stay firm and youthful.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This is a wonderful set @Aaliaa, I still have to try that Ren mask, especially since I can’t get my hands in babyfacial ☺️ You reminded me about the rose mask! I love this one! I used it in the winter and it was so hydrating and refreshing, it seems like it’d be very relaxing after a day in the sun, too. I hope you enjoy your evening of movies and maskin, keep us posted on what you use! 💕

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @bakeamuffin!! I find I spend a lot of time inside where its air-conditioned, so I like using hydrating masks to counteract that.

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Aaliaa I’m glad your skin is in a happy place! That’s the best 😁 you’ve got me curious about the odacite.

Re: RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @CC3616! Its an interesting mask because it dries down hard like more old school clay masks but once you remove it there was no dry or tight feeling at all. I normally feel like I need to follow with a hydrating mask after to counteract but I didn't have that sensation with the Odacite mask.

My kids laugh at me but I love this stuff. Origins Clean and Clear Charcoal Mask

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

That is one of the first masks I ever used @AnnieBalegan!  Works great on my T-zone.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

That’s one of my all time favorites masks, @AnnieBalegan! Enjoy your evening 😊

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Kids will be kids @AnnieBalegan, but I love this mask to!
