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.

 

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.
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!

@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! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Awwww, @bakeamuffin, that is really kind of you to say.  Thank you!!  <3 <3 <3  One of my favorite things about this post are the people here, like you!  And thank you to @Aaliaa for putting the thread together and keeping it going with the challenges. 

 

It's been fantastic hearing from everyone about their masking experiences - good, bad and funny, and learning what has worked (and has not worked) for people with similar skin types, mask preferences, etc. - I think my list of masks to try has grown significantly since being on here.  lol!  You and everyone here make this thread such a fun place to be.  Smiley Happy  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

You ladies are going to give me an ego with all this thanks 😂!! I'm glad we are all enjoying the thread so much.

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi I also love the Sephora Honey lip balm , it’s such a nice and gentle lip exfoliant, you can’t go wrong on this one ! We don’t have the DE Sukari babyfacial available in Canada since it’s not approved by Health Canada ( bummer ) but I found a way to order the TO dupe version of it by ordering it from CultBeauty in the UK ! They don’t have any DE products on that site... however, sad 😢. But the TO version is quite good and so inexpensive. The only way to get the DE would be to drive to Burlington,VT but I have to renew my passport... It was nice before 9/11 because we didn’t need a passport to enter the US by car but now things are very different and with good cause ! Canadians & Americans don’t want any f*****g terrorists entering both our countries!

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

The honey lip balm is wonderful, isn't it @keana1?!  Sephora also makes a hand scrub in the honey flavor (I happened upon it when I was standing in line for the registers...and yes, it made it's way into my shopping bag - ha!).  I just saw that there's now a kiwi lip scrub... online at least!

That's such a bummer that the DE Babyfacial is not available in Canada - I think I first heard about that from @GG84 a while back.  Smiley Sad  If my memory is correct, I think you posted about the TO dupe of the babyfacial.  TO products have a great price point.  

 

Oh yes!  Your post reminds me that I, too, need to renew my passport - that's been on my list of things to do for a while now, but it always gets pushed further down the list. 

 

 

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

@itsfi I didn’t know that Sephora had a hand scrub? Thanks for letting me know about it! I keep pushing away the obvious! I have to get that passport issue done once and for all ! I’ll renew it for 10years instead of 5 years now that the 10y option is available .

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

Yes, go for the 10 year renewal @keana1!  If you're like me though, you may need to plan (and possibly) book a vacation in order to make sure the passport renewal happens. lol!  

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

@itsfi That’s the main reason why I’m not too motivated to renew it! I don’t have any pending vacation so I’m stalling 🐢

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

@keana1  It looks like only the hand balms are showing up online and those are showing as being OOS - hmmm.... when I went into the store, they had the coconut hand balm and the honey hand scrub, both of which I picked up. They also had the almond hand balm. Should be available in both US and Canada once they are in stock.

RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Catching up on last night and tonight-Monday I used the fresh Lotus and Meg 2 step soothing and brightening mask. Not wild about the fresh Lotis, though I love, love, love their Rose mask. I used the boscia cleansing brush with it, which I have been mainly using for my gel cleansers. I absolutely love this brush! The Meg mask was different. The first step is the AHA swab. I felt like there wasn’t enough liquid on the swab, and tipped the packet slightly to see if there was a bit more. It all poured out on to my other hand 😭 ouch!!! My face is used to this stuff but my hands certainly aren’t! The jelly mask was plump FULL of very thick serum. I ended up removing the mask early as the thickness of the serum was a little uncomfortable for me. I wouldn’t repurchase, but it was fun to try something new! Tonight I added what I had to match this week’s theme-the Crème Shop’s Blueberry Banana Fusion Short mask. Very enjoyable and I like the scent-I would much rather smell this than heady florals or band-aids😆. I used the Origins Original Skin Rose Clay mask, removing with the boscia Konjac sponge (awesome for removing clay masks gently). Then on to the Ole Henriksen blue/black berry enzyme mask. This is one of my favorites and I finished it tonight. I have a backup, I haven’t even checked to se if it is still available since the new packaging. It has a soft lavender/herbal scent that is soooo relaxing. I used the Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine to soothe my lips while masking. This is another one of my loves. Such a different consistency than any lip product I have tried. I threw the little Sephora eye makeup remover in here as I used it for the first time tonight, and really love it. It feels like the same fabric as the Makeup Eraser. I was skeptical, but it removed everything-mascara and all-with just water! Love that I don’t need makeup remover with it, and it was so gentle on my eyes, another big plus. Hoping to try out some GlamGlow tomorrow, I have only used 1 of their products before and it was years ago!

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe Thanks for the reviews and great job with masking! I’m glad you liked the Creme Shop mask! I thought it smelled delicious! 🍌

I was actually thinking of trying out that Fresh mask too! I really like the Rose one too! 🌹

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.
