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: It's heeeere... so here's the real question: do I just ad...

So, I've decided I actually am going to use these all up in a month, starting February 1. Too ridiculous an idea to resist!

Re: It's heeeere... so here's the real question: do I just ad...

Woohoo!!! There are some great masks in that set - the lip masks are the best ones of that type that I've used.  Looking forward to hearing all about your month of masking @fieldsofclover!

Re: It's heeeere... so here's the real question: do I just ad...

What I do is gauge how my skin is feeling every day cause it always needs something different based on what i’ve been doing or simply by how i’m feeling.  I usually won’t use the same type of mask two days I a row and will try to address a different skin concern than I previously did so i’m not stressing my skin out.  For example using an exfoliating mask back to back may irritate you’re skin or using clarifying masks back to back may strip it). I have dry skin to a good fallback mask for me for everyday use usually boasts hydraulic acid. @fieldsofclover 

Re: It's heeeere... so here's the real question: do I just ad...

@fieldsofclover That's a whole lot of masks!! I've never tried Sephora brand skincare...are they any good?

Re: It's heeeere... so here's the real question: do I just ad...

@GG84  They're good "starter" masks, imo... full of glycerin and aloe juice and castor oil or something like that. They're definitely not high-end, but they don't claim to be so it's fine. I'm skeptical about whether there's much variation between "flavors" but they smell different and the illusion of choice is nice. Now that I have a more involved routine (daily DDG peel in the AM, retinol/mask/overnight treatment in PM) I use these when my skin needs a break from more active masking... for me they're like a lazier version of the Fresh rose mask.

 

 

They were my sheet/sleeping mask gateway drug - I get one here and there to hit the $25 buy-in for promos so I've tried at least one of each type in here already.

 

 

The only one I would actively steer clear of is the lip mask, though. They're newer than the others and there's something off about the formula... I just found it useless/mildly drying, but a lot of people have actually had a reaction.

Re: It's heeeere... so here's the real question: do I just ad...

What an amazing reward @fieldsofclover so tempting!!

Re: It's heeeere... so here's the real question: do I just ad...

On a totally selfish perspective I would say do them all in a month! This way it will be easier to compare and know which ones you love and want to repurchase (and would recommend to us!) Also given next weeks challenge, a lot of these could be very useful! @fieldsofclover

Re: It's heeeere... so here's the real question: do I just ad...

@Aaliaa I'm actually thinking I will do it this way... I think some of these are going to be discontinued which means this is stock they want to turn over. I'm not concerned about any of it expiring, but it will be more fun to use it all while it's fresh!

I just scored Dr Brandt Needles No More 3D Filler Mask at Marshalls for $29.99!!! They had a whole bunch of PTR Cucumber Aloe for $15.99...it was red stickered...and the box looked weird so I didn't get any of those but excited for this one even though I've never tried it lol I know a good deal when I see one.

@GG84 Wow that's one of the luckiest deals I've seen there! Great find! 🍀

Re: I just scored Dr Brandt Needles No More 3D Filler Mask at...

What a score indeed @GG84!  Nicely done!  You'll have to let us know how you like it!

Re: I just scored Dr Brandt Needles No More 3D Filler Mask at...

My mom loves this mask and says that she sees immediate improvement on forehead wrinkles. Hope you love it, too! Great find!

Re: I just scored Dr Brandt Needles No More 3D Filler Mask at...

Nice score @GG84! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on this mask!

Re: I just scored Dr Brandt Needles No More 3D Filler Mask at...

I love Dr. Brandt but never tried any of their masks. Let us know how you like it @GG84!

Masking Trivia #02 - Whats the First Mask you ever used?

My Answer

Spoiler
I think it was a mask from 'The Body Shop' when I was in middle school. It isn't available anymore but I remember it being pretty good. I remember going for a Guinot Facial at 16 and my love affair wth skincare started!29859-Blue-Corn-3-In-1-Deep-Cleansing-Scrub-Mask.jpg

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Definitely a drugstore Freeman mask! Back in the day they only made a few kinds, so it was either the cucumber peel-off mask or the avocado/oatmeal one... those two got me through all of the 90s.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Aaliaa I'm too distracted by those puppies to even think 😍😍😍

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Haha, aren't they!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

On summer vacation probably around 1988/89 my mom bought me a clay mask face (I asked for it, she wasn’t dropping hints or anything). It was a generic, no-name drugstore thing and OMG it was IN-TENSE. I had no idea what I was doing, except being very glamorous, and I slapped a thick, thick layer on my face and my little sister’s and we then proceeded to let the clay eat our skin off for the next hour or so. We were raw, red little lobsters after that. But I’m pretty sure we kept using it because we didn’t know any better. I was probably 12 and my sister was 9. Glamour girls!

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Mask of Magnaminty from Lush. I was at science summer camp in Middle School and my roommate introduced me to Lush!

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

@ChicagoEngineer That was also my first LUSH mask Smiley Very Happy People in Korea call it the "Shrek" mask. 

 

@Aaliaa My very first mask was ... and then I realized I couldn't remember, and it's almost like realizing you don't remember your first kiss. lol. I think it was something from CVS, one of the peel-off cucumber masks.
