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.

Since we aren’t allowed to post links, please PM 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!


 Incase you need some help to filter/search results, try this :-

 

Search Specific Word or Phrase —> Edit -> Find and Replace -> Search Word

Filter/Organize by Columns --> Data -> Create a Filter -> Select Options
 

There are 2 ways to edit a response: 

1) Once you have completed a survey, click on the "Edit Your Response" link on that page. Once this page is closed, the only way to make a change is to:

2) PM @Aaliaa or @eshoe to make the change directly in the response spreadsheet

 

Thanks @eshoe for putting this together!

 

 

 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.

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.

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.

Merry Masking!

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I'm in  agreement with @nikki.  I like the way you have it set up.  If you change it-that's fine tho.  I figured if I didn't have a mask from a certain brand or type of mask that the challenge called for I would just substitute with something else I already have.  This way I'm still participating and using what I already have.  Looking forward to the consensus and beginning this challenge!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

That was my plan.  I have quite a stockpile of masks and don't necessarily want to add so I can use a specific brand.  I'm just glad this was set up so I actually use them. Smiley Happy

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I like the way you have it set up and people can skip or sub a different mask on weeks that are brand specific or they don’t have. So no one is penalized but it still encourages others to try different brands or nail masks or whatever

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Finally got a day to myself so I indulged in a little multi-masking session Smiley Happy It's been a frigid week in the northeast and my skin is parched and flaky, yet still somehow oily and slightly congested. Stupid winter.

 

Caudalie Instant Detox Mask - T-zone and cheeks

DDG Alpha Beta Peel Pad

Tony Moly Orange Sheet Mask  

Belif Aqua Bomb 

 

Then I put on my winter coat that's basically a down blanket with buttons and a hood, and ventured out for a mani/pedi. Following up with some wine and dinner with friends, then I can finally say goodbye to 2017 (and not a moment too soon! what a ridiculous year)!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@MissPuff my skin is mess right now too! my nose and chin have been really congested, but my skin is also painfully dry. i've been multi masking like crazy to try and get some relief. happy new year my friend, i'm also ready for a fresh start!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@unfungirl Happy New Year to you too! I feel like I've been misting my face non-stop but it's like the sahara desert! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

What a great note to end the year on @MissPuff! Love getting a peek at your mask sequence too ❤️

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

A few recommendations for weeks. @Aaliaa

Clay mask, peel off mask, drugstore favorite, hair mask, brand week: Sephora Collection, and eye mask.

Forgot to add foil/sample mask and New mask (try something new).

I use sheet masks a lot for moisturizing. 

 

Happy New Year everybody! <3 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

how are you even cute in a sheet mask @MSena? i've been using them a lot lately too! my skin is parched Smiley Sad happy new year!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@unfungirl Aww Hearts to you Smiley Very Happy 

 

My skin is super parched too. It's all the heating. 

I love sheet masks for prepping because without them, my foundation will harden and flake like nobody's business... 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

They are so nice to help seal in all the steps of your skin care routine @MSena! And yes, central heat and the cold air is so drying. I got a humidifier and I’m still so dry!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@unfungirl I should get a humidifier for my bedroom! 

Thanks for the reminder Smiley Very Happy I keep forgetting and wonder why I'm getting premature forehead lines ... 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

They really help @MSena! My hands wee cracked and like sandpaper before I broke down and got one. I use it in the bedroom with essential oils Smiley Wink

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I do the same. I have a small diffuser/humidifier and it helps with moisture, my allergies and overall making my room smell nice. @unfungirl @MSena

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I love eucalyptus especially @Aaliaa!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I was looking in my drawer and thinking about this challenge...

 

Masks are the one thing I purposefully seek out and hoard minis of. I've worked to get a consistent daily routine with a brand that works for me, so this is the one area of skincare where I indulge all my novelty-seeking, ooh-shiny whims.

 

Anyone else like that? Or do you mostly have a tried-and-true "default" mask and a bunch of unused samples?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@fieldsofclover masks are my favorite thing to experiment with too. i have a good skin care routine, but masks are a fun way to address certain concerns, and boost your everyday routine.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I’m totally with you - nothing gets me to place an order faster than a new mask GWP. I’ve found so many masks I love because of minis and samples. Skincare is just so expensive I want to try it out before taking the plunge. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

For years I just used a Clinique scrub and a clay mask. The last year as I've gotten more and more into skincare I've been using more masks and looking at ingredients and type of mask and what my skin needs that day. I recently got a sample of the Tata Harper Purifying and Herbivore Blue Tansy mask and I love them both. @fieldsofclover
