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!

@itsfi This is the first one that I've seen but it seems appealing. It comes down to $.66 a sheet mask ($.55 if you use the $3.50 coupon they always have) and the ingredients are pretty good. I might pick on up on my next order or if I find them in store.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@makeitup305

That is such a good deal and, with all the sheet masks being in the same container, it cuts down on all the packaging that comes with individual sheet masks. I really like that it has good ingredients.  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi that's what I thought. Even if I don't use all of them, the price is still a lot less than what I usually pay, even for a cheap one.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Whoa, they come out like face wipes?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@fieldsofclover it seems like it! I think it sounds great! Less waste if you think about it (although someone needs to figure out how to make those masks dissolve after use).

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@makeitup305 I haven’t heard of these. Let us know if you give them shot!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

So - is this week for Glamglow masks or masks that are Glam and/or Glow-y? Either way, I'm happy. I did use Thirstymud this morning as an intensive mask for the first time in forever. Usually I wear it overnight as a sleeping mask but today I slathered it on and left it about 20 minutes before wiping it off and my skin felt amazing afterwards. I keep wanting to touch my cheeks even though I know I shouldn't. I really love this mask and I'm down to only about 1/4 of the tub left. The trick will be to see if I can hold off on replacing it until I have used up more of my other masks or if I cave and replace it as soon as it is empty.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Okay, I am still stuck on the idea of getting my glow on with Glamglow since I wasn't around for the official GG week. I'll branch out tomorrow! I went with Gravitymud today since I don't usually focus much on firming but I have been under a lot of stress recently and my face has been showing every one of its years. It was my first time using it and I  only had a sample sachet so I would have liked to have had a smidge more product to use but I was really happy with the mask. I actually got online afterwards and picked up a couple tubes of the Sonic version to keep on hand. (And I know that my selfies are ridiculous. I am old and a Luddite and just can't figure out where to look or how to hold the phone!)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Alphaboo

Your selfies are far from ridiculous and you are not old!  I think your pics are great and you are totally glam and glowing in this GlamGlow mask. It says a lot about a mask if you went online to purchase it after using a sample! Glad to hear you liked the mask!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Alphaboo

This is a great mask - very hydrating and smells soooo nice! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Here is my mask for the Sheet Mask Challenge: Kocostar Lemon Slice mask sheet.  

 

I usually hate sheet masks but I liked this one because it comes in 2 different size slices (and not a full sheet!). I felt like my skin felt brighter, more even/less splotchy, and softer the next morning.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@CakesCakes

I'm definitely going to pick up some of these Kocostar masks.  You, @heartsmyface and @HeyMelissaa have sold me on these masks.I was in Anthropologie the other day and saw these after I had already made my purchases but will definitely pick up a few the next time I'm there.  Have you tried any of the other flavors?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi this is the first one I tried but the next one on my list is going to be the cucumber or Rose one. I hope it works for you!! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

That's a neat mask, @CakesCakes! I'm glad it works so well!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@curlychiquita Thanks! It was an impulse buy! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ohmigosh this comes in lemon too? That's so cool @CakesCakes!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@fieldsofclover I picked this one up at Target! They also had cucumber and rose ones. I’d love to try a strawberry one though!

it comes it tomatoe, lemon, cucumber and another flavor i...

it comes it tomatoe, lemon, cucumber and another flavor i cant remember @fieldsofclover

Re: it comes it tomatoe, lemon, cucumber and another flavor i...

@GG84  @fieldsofclover

I've also seen these Kocostar masks in strawberry, watermelon, kiwi, apple, rose, sunflower and tulip at Anthropologie and Neiman Marcus.

Re: it comes it tomatoe, lemon, cucumber and another flavor i...

OoO No Neiman in Canada but we have a few Anthropologies...I'll have to pick some up!

Re: it comes it tomatoe, lemon, cucumber and another flavor i...

This is the kind of mask I need to impulse-buy. I should see if the flagship Nordstrom stocks them 🕵️‍♀️
