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!

Thanks  but it's all good light and makeup 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@moxiepancakes

Your makeup always looks lovely, but it has a great canvas to work from - your beautiful skin.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Used a Sephora sleeping mask last night and was disappointed. Not hydrating and i woke up with a small pimple! Definitely not a keeper.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Weird, never tried the honey one... it's new. Sorry to hear it wasn't nice to you @nikki 😞

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Too bad it didn't work for you @nikki. I can't decide what I think about the Sephora brand masks, but I fin them quite expensive for what they are.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I agree with you, @Aaliaa. They seem cheap because of the low cost per pod, but when you compare the price to a jar of a better-quality mask, they’re not cheap at all. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Aaliaa@fieldsofclover @myinsidevoice it’s weird, since I’ve tried other Sephora sleeping masks and they’ve been ok. I really liked the pearl one in particular. Something in this one just didn’t agree with my skin. @Aaliaa I get you on the expensive for what they are. Plus I hate that they aren’t resealable because there’s definitely enough in there for more than one night 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@nikki I don’t like that about them either. Having a cling film-covered half-empty pod on my counter just annoys me. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@nikki @Aaliaa @myinsidevoice Yeah I've always found that really silly. Now when I use them I put the pack in a tiny tupperware container afterward and just try to go two days in a row.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh noooo, @nikki!  I've not tried the sleeping mask from the Sephora Collection - the other masks seemed to be fine.  So sorry to hear that the sleeping mask did not work out for you.  😞

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!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@mishanyc, I've been looking for good ginseng sheet masks to try.  Will have to look into this Nature Republic mask - if it brightens and moisturizes, I'm all for it! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@mishanyc Lol!! I wish you would post a photo of yourself in all your luchador glory, but I understand if you prefer not to 😉 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@PinkEvergreen My husband tried to get the Luchador picture!  But then he decided sleeping on the couch wasn't worth it lol.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

😂😂😂😂

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Happy New Year Everyone!! I decided to forgo all NYE plans to stay in and stay warm! I decided to kick of the masking challenge a little early using a new favourite Sheet mask (I get mine from Winners) by Danielle Creations. Its a thicker cotton mask with a fair amount of serum in it. I sometimes use the remaining serum mixed with a little essence and compressed sheet mask the next day for added value. To keep the serum sanitary, I use a bag clip and keep it in the fridge overnight.

I recently discovered the Jade Roller, and I use it after applying the mask to help 'push-in' the serum. The eye mask is ok and bite beauty lip mask is definitely hydrating (forgot to add it too the photo).

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I always use my jade roller with my sheet masks!!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Aaliaa @Kim888 I love the look of the jade roller! I ended up going a less pretty but quite effective route for getting my serums deep into my pores. I apply the serum to my face and then use my Foreo Luna Mini 2 to massage it into my skin. I’ve noticed that my results have improved vastly, and that I can use less serum. 

 

A cheaper alternative, for anyone that doesn’t have a Foreo cleansing device, is to use the Sephora Precision Pore Cleansing Pad. It’s quite effective as well, for under $10.
