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!

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!



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: Mask of the Week Challenge!

The results from the honey masks sound great, @itsfi!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

The honey mask was very nice @curlychiquita!  The next time I make a purchase from The Creme Shop, I'm going to purchase a pack of that one.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

These look and sounds so nice @itsfi, I love our skincare choices! 😄

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you @bakeamuffin!  These particular pairings worked out really well; I'm going to use them more frequently!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi Great masking choices and pairs! I still have that avocado 🥑 eye mask waiting for me- glad to hear you liked it! The Caffeine one is definitely my favorite, plus, it smells like chocolate! 👌🍫

It seems strange the honey mask fits so differently than the others- I would think they’d all be pretty much the same!🤔 My face usually reacts well with Honey products🍯😉

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @Shosh85! I can't wait to try the caffeine eye mask. I really like these eye masks; that the caffeine one  smells like chocolate just adds to the appeal! 🍫 


I do think the sizing of the  propolis mask that I used may have been a one off because the fit of all the ones in that particular range of sheet masks that I've tried have all fit the same. There will be another purchase from The Creme Shop in my future (though maybe later this summer since I need to get to using others I've been wanting to try) and I'll pick up another propolis mask to see if the misfiring mask was a one-off. 🍯


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi I’ll have to do the Honey one next so I can see if the fit is any different than yours🤔

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ooh, yes, I'd love to know. Fit it into your masking routine when it makes sense.  Hoping I just got a dud. 🤞🏼 It will be very noticeable - it was so wide it would have covered a 1/4 of my eye if I didn't cut it. 😂  Thanks @Shosh85

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi Well, if yours was a dud, then mine came from the same batch 😬 mine was just as you described, and I just cut straight across like you did and it was just fine. This one also felt so good on my face! I see what you meant about the scent- sort of a sweet honey and floral smell. 🍯💐


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh my goodness, yesss @Shosh85!!  I guess mine wasn't the lone dud.  I'm fine with cutting it straight across because I like how the mask performs and it is very refreshing, but it is odd that it's shaped so differently than the other sheet masks from the same line. 

RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Hi lovelies! Miss you all,to share this great gratis I got from space nk! It’s the malin and goetz brightening enzyme mask, releasing July 1st. Pumpkin and pomegranate natural AHA. I was concerned when I got this because my skin has been haywire since moving (bad air and water quality, yikes!! I’ve been washing my face and hair with bottled water 😂) so I’ve been a little scared to try anything new as to not upset it further. But I gathered up some courage last night and was really impressed. I am dull/dry normally, exacerbated severely by where we are now 0plus some irritation. I was an acid user before moving and I have cut back a little with the irritation, but do still have lactic, glycolic, aha, and bha in my routine. this stung a tad toward the end of the 5 minutes, but no irritation when I washed off and my skin was glowing!! It’s been a long time since I’ve seen it look so good here honestly. I haven’t used a lot Of malin products, and what I have I felt meh about, so that made me extra impressed. I will defiantly put this in my rotation! 1st pic packing sheet, second with mask, third skin today with just skincare and tinted moisturizer on💜

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@CC3616 Good to see you again!!! Hope you’re all settled in from the move!

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This looks like a great mask, @CC3616!  Thanks for your review!

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@CC3616  Nice to see you around! 😉

You (and your skin) really do look fantastic! That mask sounds like one I need to try!! Thanks for that great review!

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!


Your skin looks amazing!  The Malin + Goetz mask sounds great!  I've used products with pumkin enzymes before but never pomegranate ones; will have to stop by Space NK to see about a sample.  Thank you for sharing!

RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This is hands down the most effective acne ask I have ever tried. Absolutely nothing beats it. After using it for 1/2 hr there is a marked decrease in the size of whiteheads. It does contain sulphur so if you’re sensitive to that, do not use. I know this doesn’t go with the theme, but it’s def a HG for me so had to share!

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@mermadelove  This one sounds awesome! I’ll definitely have to pick this up soon! 🙌

Seriously tho, stop being so darn cute, haha!🤗

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 I buy it in the Space Race Kit. Its more cost effective that way. 

And quit making me blush. 😊

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I’ve never even heard of this mask! Thanks for sharing, @mermadelove - looks like a great one to try out 😊

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@scott1201  I really love it!

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!


Always good to hear about HG masks. Thanks for sharing!  I have this mask somewhere in my mask bin; will have to go look for it. Thinking it will make an excellent spot treatment while multi-masking. Does it smell like sulphur?
