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!!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@quspork Thanks! It’s really a great mask especially in summer since it’s so refreshing and cooling ❄️! You should definitely try it!

GlamGlow YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Treatment. 
This is a brownish creamy and grainy mud that has little chunks of tea leaves mixed in. It had a pleasant scent-– sort of like tea tree leaf with a note of floral. It only took a few seconds after applying for my face to start tingling. At first the tingling was so strong my eyes started to water and I felt a slight burning sensation. Right as I was about to abort, the burning feeling went away but was still tingly. It only took about 10 minutes for this mask to dry. The directions say you’re supposed to removed with water in circular motions to exfoliate– I felt like the grit in this mask was just a tad too harsh, so I was careful not to put on too much pressure. When I rinsed it off, my face was red, tight, dry and still a little tingly.  It also made my face extremely smooth, soft and even shrank my pores! 
So I was left with a slightly reddish and irritated face but very soft, smooth and clean– this definitely gives a very good deep clean! Of course after I’m done using it, I read on the tube that it’s “not for use on sensitive skin” – ooops, haha!😬 My face survived so maybe my skin isn’t as sensitive as I thought! 😂🤔 I read a review that someone uses this as a spot treatment to help dry out and shrink pimples– so I may just keep using for that, because it’s just a little too intense and drying as a mask for me! 
After the GlamGlow mask my face needed some help calming down. So I pulled out 
The Creme Shop B12 Complex Face Mask. The package says that the B12 vitamin is known to reduce redness, inflammation, dryness and dullness of skin- which sounded like exactly what I needed. The size of this mask was a little off– eyeholes too small, bridge of the nose too wide and just too long in general. This had a nice clean, fresh scent and plenty of serum. It felt cooling and soothing while it was on and after about 20 minutes I removed it and my face felt extremely refreshed and hydrated. The redness I had from the GlamGlow mask was gone. The serum absorbed pretty quickly and my face was soft, smooth and bright! 🙌

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

You are ON BRAND this week! Smiley Very Happy Love this combo - i'll probably use something similar later tonight! @Shosh85

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks, @scott1201!! I really do like (and own) a lot of products from both these brands!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Great masking duo @Shosh85!  I'm going to try this combo!!  I've had good results using either the GlamGlow that comes in the black packaging or the one that comes in the white packaging on my nose and as a spot treatment - both are really good. 

 

I'm so happy that the B12 mask worked out well, even if the fit was off.  I agree with @yankeefaithful, it sounds like a good sheet mask to have on hand.  I'm definitely more excited about using the B12 mask after reading your review!  Thank you @Shosh85!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you, @itsfi!! I can see how this GlamGlow mask would be a great spot treatment! I will definitely continue to use it for that! 👍

I really enjoyed the B12 mask! The fit was literally the only thing I didn’t love! 👌

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85  Glad to know about the Glamglow!! It was good that you had a mask to soothe your skin! Very interested in the Vit B12 mask, because Vit Bs have great anti-inflammatory properties!! This sounds like it would be nice to have on hand!! Thanks for great reviews!😊

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks, @yankeefaithful! This mask was great! I will definitely be ordering more of these! 🤗👍

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 the glamglow sounds like a power horse of a mask! Definitely a killer spot treatment! It’s nice that you had the b12 complex face mask on hand to use afterwards 😄 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you, @bakeamuffin!! I think this definitely would make a great spot treatment! 👌

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

The Drunk Elephant Sukari Babyfacial and the Sephora Collection Honey Lip Balm have been raved about in several posts on this thread, and for good reason – they’re amazing!  <3 <3 <3   Started off with both of these beauties earlier tonight and then moved onto The Crème Shop Eye Mask Sea Kelp.

I’m a fan of these eye masks from The Crème Shop; they cover a lot more area than just the eyes; I feel like it covers about 3/4 of my face.  I’ve been a little nervous about trying the Sea Kelp mask though.  In general, I find things related to water (i.e., the sea, ocean, etc) calming, but when it comes to things that may involve texture like seaweed or sea kelp, I’m a little skittish, so I’ve held off on trying this particular flavor of the eye mask.  My nerves were for naught. 

Like the other eye masks in this collection, The Crème Shop Eye Mask Sea Kelp is wonderful!  There’s a scent to this mask but it’s not readily discernible to me.  It does smell clean, but there’s something else there that I cannot pinpoint – it’s clean-plus. Smiley Wink   Fit-wise, it’s great, a bit wide, but it covers my face from my forehead to my nose.  I left it on for a little longer than the stated time and when I removed the eye mask, I noticed my complexion looked awake, more clear and bright, and my eyes and cheeks, where I am most prone to dryness, felt nicely moisturized.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi Thanks for the review on the eye mask! I’ve been hesitant to try this one because I was worried it might have a weird smell– glad to hear it’s a pleasant one! I’ll have to add this to my next order now! 🤗😉

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

All The Creme Shop eye masks are great @Shosh85!  Wish they would make a sampler packet of them, with one of each!  Smiley Happy

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi I’ve thought about that too! We should write in a request– they do have an Instagram page, haha! 😂😉

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

DE Babyfacial & Sephora Lip balm is a power duo!  I'm glad you liked the Sea Kelp mask, too, @itsfi.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Agree @curlychiquita!  I think the DE Babyfacial and Sephora honey lip scrub combo would pair well with a lot of other masks, sheet masks and wash off ones. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Glad to hear the Sea Kelp mask ended up working well for you! Your review is so compelling that I think I must look for this mask online 🕵🏻‍♀️ @itsfi

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Guessgal  all The Creme Shop eye masks have been great!  If you are able to get your hands on them, would love to know what you think about them.  Based on some of the posts here, it seems like Winners in Canada might carry some Creme Shop products, but not sure if their stock includes the eye masks. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi. This looks like great masking!! Of course, you know I love the DE Babyfacial and this eye mask sounds like something I would love!! Thanks for sharing!😍

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ohhhh DE Babyfacial!!  What is not to love about it @yankeefaithful, other than the price?!!  ha!  I've learned about a lot of different exfoliating products from this thread and they've really done wonders for the texture of my skin, and that's been very helpful for masking!  Smiley Wink  

 

These eye masks are wonderful; I think you would like them a lot!  Some have a distinct scent to them; others just smell fresh/clean.  It's a bit of a misnomer that they are called eye masks though - because they most definitely cover more than just the eye area!  But that's not a complaint at all, especially given how well they perform!  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

These all sound so nice @itsfi! I’m glad the the kelp eye mask ended up working out in your favour! It sounds really nice 😄 

You’re my masking inspiration 💕 I love the variety of masks that you use, it’s so great reading through your reviews, especially since we have similar skin types 😊 Thanks for sharing!
