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


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.


Additional Info:


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

There are 2 ways to edit a response:

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


Thanks @eshoe for putting this together!



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.
How To: 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.
Most Important: 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: RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Amazing! Oui love it! Sorbet is such a good follow up to this mask 🍇💦

RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This philosophy mask is my absolute favorite for getting glowy skin! I picked it up during weekly wow and I’m so glad I did. I’m always looking for good vitamin c masks and the results of using this are great! My skin looking immediately glowy and brightened after use. I always pull it out before special occasions to give my skin a bit of pep!

TELL ME MORE @Kim888 is it a chemical exfoliator or is it...

TELL ME MORE @Kim888 is it a chemical exfoliator or is it vitamin c? Or both? I must know 🤔

Re: TELL ME MORE @Kim888 is it a chemical exfoliator or is it...

@GG84 It's a exfoliating enzyme peel (tbh I am not like super knowledgeable on differentiating between exfoliating mask types but I don't think that's a chemical peel  ). The first step is a gritty sort of sugar feeling vitamin c infused consistency and you rub it into your skin for about a minute and then step two goes on top and that's a Lactic/Salicylic Activating Gel which warms and foams up over step 1. It's super quick - like 4 minutes in total and delivers immediate results. 

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Kim888 I love love love this peel! I used to use it ALL the time and don’t know how I ever forgot about it, thanks for the reminder!

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ooh, good to know!

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Kim888   I've heard good things about this Philosophy product. Thanks for the input, will have to look into this. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

So I wasn't sure where to post these but these are a good deal and have good ingredients. Has anyone tried these? 



It comes with 30(!) sheet masks.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I haven’t tried them but i’m scared of larger packs of face masks cause it’s easy to contaminate them.  I had a pack of placenta ones go moldy on me once and that was it for me with larger packs. I’m sure if you use them up daily like they say they’ll be fine but something to watch out for if you’re switching up the masks you use.  @makeitup305

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@heartsmyface Yeah that's something that I hadn't considered. Thanks for the heads up!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

The value is there if you’re just looking for filler in your routine, but these larger packs tend to have lower concentration serums.  I see these month packs a lot in Japanese pharmacies (not this brand)  and they seem pretty popular so they can’t be that bad.  @makeitup305

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oooh, my local store has these in stock...

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!


I've been seeing these types of daily sheet mask packs online and reading about some of them on various blogs, but I've never purchased one before. If you end up trying them, I'd be very interested to hear what your thoughts after you've had a bit of time to test them out.

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!


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!)
