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

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.

RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Update - I LOVED how soft the Sephora hair mask made my hair!!!!!!! I couldn’t stop touching it all day!

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ohhh I just ordered the same hair mask, @TinPanAli. I'm curious to find out how it worked out for you 😁 

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ive been super curious about the sephora hair masks! Looks great

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh wow 6 masks!! Thats amazing @TinPanAli!! How do you like the Sephora Collection masks?? I've been quite tempted with the hand and foot masks given the current weather here in Toronto. Do you think they are worth it?

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I really like the hand and foot masks. They don't perform miracles this time of year, of course, but layered with some lotion afterwards they do leave my skin feeling much softer and moisturized. 

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh, I’ve been super interested in these Sephora masks, @TinPanAli. I love the eye masks,  it so you think the other masks are worth the price? 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

So excited for this thread!  Thank you again @Aaliaa for hosting it!

 

Hydrating masks are one of my favorite types of sheet masks - my dry and dehydrated skin loves (and needs) the hydration!  For the first mask of the year, I went with Aritaum Fresh Power Essential Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask. This was a gift and I like the results. The mask has a light fresh, watery scent and contains a good amount of essence but is by no means dripping in it. There's extra essence in the pouch and I use it on my arms and legs - they need hydration too! Smiley Happy

 

Fit-wise, it is larger than many other sheet masks in the nose are, but it's nothing that a few snips with a pair of scissors doesn't fix. The essence is a little sticky once the mask is removed, but that feeling disappears once the essence is absorbed.  My skin feels nicely hydrated.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@myinsidevoice You're so knowledgeable!  I'm going to find and try this mask!  It looks clean and refreshing.  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks for all your love @myinsidevoice! My favourite sheet masks are generally hydrating ones as well. Happy Masking!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@myinsidevoice A lot of sheet masks tend to have narrower eye slots than my eyes so I end up just tearing them in the outer eye area.  I don’t have the patience to go find scissors Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@heartsmyface, I usually have the same issue with sheet masks - the outer eye area is just a smidge too narrow. I have a pair of mini scissors that I keep in the bathroom cabinet - and yes, those scissors are there specifically for use in adjusting my sheet masks! hahahaha! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Mask of the day! This was a random purchase last year while placing an order for my mum and a great surprise. 

Pro: Really hydrating

Con: Has silicone in it, which makes me question the penetration of the product, but again it does leave my skin hydrated and plump.

 

EDIT: My face feels like a babies bottom after using this.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Hydrating and gives you baby soft skin, @Aaliaa?  That's a great mask! 

 

Too bad about the silicones - are they listed near the top or bottom of the ingredients list?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I know I'm late but I would love to join if you have room for one more @Aaliaa! I have so many masks that I've been hoarding and this may help motivate me to use them more often! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@juliehnguyen Welcome!  I joined this challenge for the same reason you mentioned.  I have quite a stash of masks and wanted some motivation to use them.  And pampering myself is a nice perk.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

There's always room @juliehnguyen!  The more the merrier! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

You don't need to ask @juliehnguyen!! The more the better to motivate us to better take care of ourselves! Let the decluttering begin!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Tonight I used the Ginseng Royal Silk Gold Hydrogel Mask by Nature Republic.  The mask was gold and I looked like a Luchador but it was worth it!  I put the mask on and gave myself a pedicure.  After 30 mins I removed it and noticed my skin was brighter and felt moisturized.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ouhhhhhh!   This one looks good!!!! I love hydrogel masks!  @mishanyc

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@heartsmyface that was the first time I tried this mask.  I really enjoyed it.  Let me know if you pick it up or if you have a favorite hydrogel mask.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I'm going to have to check this one out, always great to test new sheet masks @mishanyc!
