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.

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe I like the idea of using the Konjac sponge gently to remove a clay mask.  Thanks for sharing.

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe I also love their rose mask, I’m sorry that the Fresh lotus mask did not work out well.

The Blueberry/Banana fusion mask really caught my eye, it sounds so nice!! 

Ive been interested in the Rose Clay Mask, do you find it particularly drying?

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

@bakeamuffin, I do find it somewhat drying. Looking at it now, it is a “Retexturizing mask,” so likely not the best for sensitive skin. I was drawn to the rose clay aspect of it, but it doesn’t do Muh for my skin so it may be time to toss this one!

RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe I can’t try the Fresh Lotus mask , the last time I used the Fresh Lotus eye cream I had an allergic reaction to it, I wish I could try it but I might get disfigured by it ! I really hope that your hand isn’t badly burned!

RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@keana1, wow I am so sorry you had such a bad reaction to the lotus! Thankfully I have never had an allergy to a product I have tried, only a few unpleasant experiences 🙄

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Wow, look at all those fun masks @eshoe!  I've been intrigued by the boscia cleansing brush so it's nice to hear about it and good to know that it has your approval.  Isn't The Creme Shop blueberry and banana mask great?!  @Shosh85 said it best when she said it smells like a smoothie!!  Smiley Happy

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

@itsfi, I had been eyeing that brush a while, glad I bought it. It is so gentle, and creates a nice lather on my skin😊

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

Ooooh, thanks @eshoe!  That boscia brush does sound nice - I saw a few in the store the other day and just kept looking at it and wondering whether it worked.  Now I know (and I'll have to go back and pick one up).  Smiley Wink

Last night I tried a Sephora Hair Mask for the first time. My has been a little dry and it’s been a while since I used a hair mask, so it was perfect timing. I reached for the Sephora coconut hair Sleeping mask. 🥥

 

Spoiler
Prior to using the mask, I washed my hair and allowed it to completely air dry. I was hoping that after rinsing the mask my hair would be in perfect condition for styling. The bottom portion is the hair mask and the top portion is the cap to put on after applying the mask. I found there was quite a lot of product and it did a pretty good job at coating my long, thick hair. There were some areas that seemed a little dry, and some that were well saturated, so I brushed it through to evenly distribute, and bundled up my hair into the cap. I was expecting the cap to be plastic, so I was really happy to discover it was actually something like a cotton material that was pleasant to wear through the night. It also had fun little pictures on it like a coconut and a blow drier 😄
In the morning I waited until after breakfast to rinse out the mask, I didn’t wash my hair at this point because I was curious if it would leave my hair greasy or not. To my satisfaction, my hair was left soft, shiny, smooth, bouncy and it was easy to style. It smells so yummy, like delicious tropical coconut and I’m overall really happy with the results of this hair mask. I’ll definitely be grabbing it to use again, and I’ll be trying out the other Sephora hair masks too 😊

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@bakeamuffin, I'm glad you liked it!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@bakeamuffin Thank you for the review! I recently bought the Holy Sheet set & I've never tried a hair mask before, so I was hesitant. I also have long, thick hair, so I'm glad to hear there's enough product Smiley Happy

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks for the review on this one, @bakeamuffin! I've been so curious about the hair mask, but haven't had a chance to try it. I may have to pick it up soon, though! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

SO glad someone finally posted about this mask, @bakeamuffin 🤗 I’ve been sitting on one for a while, honestly a little unsure how to use (before cleaning my hair? After? Does it need washed out?) so thanks for your review!

 

Also, I’m sure this is all on the instructions but, you know, laziness 😂

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@scott1201 the instructions were not very thorough, at all - but it really is a great hair mask! 😄 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@bakeamuffin I’ve been tempted to try these! So happy to hear it worked great!!  I will definitely be picking up a couple of these soon!! 🙌

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 totally worth it! 😄 I’m really interested I’m trying rose next, I hope it makes my hair as soft as the coconut has 😄

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This hair mask sounds wonderful @bakeamuffinSmiley Happy  Thanks for sharing your experience with it.  I have a few of these, and will be sure to pull them out to give them a try!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on these too @itsfi! 😄 So lucky that you have some on hand 😊

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I've been terrible with masking in the last few weeks, but here are the masks that I've been using since the last weekend:20180710_190630-1.jpg

 The Face Shop sheet masks felt hydrating and the essence absorbed quickly. My only gripe with these are the shape. They're so ill fitting. 

The Lush Mask was the Mask of Magnaminty. I really can't say I was a fan. I asked the sales associate for a mask to help with pores and she gave me this one. This mask does claim to help with that and also redness, moisture and exfoliation. I really can't say I felt any of that. It dried out my skin so much. Luckily I use the Glow Recipe sleeping mask every night so that helped. 

The Philosophy mask is more fun for me. I like that it doesn't really dry down and that it foams quite a bit. I don't see much difference with my pores, but I do think it feels more radiant and soft afterwards 😄

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Nice masking @SpaceLlama! The glow recipe sleeping mask sounds so nice! 😍 Sorry that the lush mask ended up not being great for you 😞 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

It is, @bakeamuffin! I really wish we had Glow Recipe in Canada 😞.
