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.

 

 

 

Additional Info:

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 β€”> 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

 

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.

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!!

P.S. If you have any suggestions or challenge recommendations feel free to message me and I'll add them to the list.

Merry Masking!

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

The photoshopped mask sounds nice, especially for the morning to help prep your skin for the day. πŸ˜„ 

You and @Shosh85 are making it hard to resist the Thirstymud mask! I can’t wait to get my hands on it to try πŸ˜„ thanks for your reviews ❀️ You have such awesome masking choices @itsfi πŸ˜Š

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you @bakeamuffin❀️  I didn't learn about sheet masks until late in my skincare journey and it's been a lot of fun mixing and matching different masks for the various combinations.

 

If you end up getting the ThirstyMud, do let us know what you think of it. @Shosh85

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Tonight my skin was craving some hydration so I reached for the Chia Seed Mask 😊 611541B1-AE2E-4045-8B92-7CCE53BFEEE2.jpeg

 

Spoiler
I was so excited to finally try a Creme Shop Mask (thank you @itsfi!!!) and a Hydrating Mask is so fitting for me πŸ˜„ This Mask was SOAKED in serum, but the thin cotton material held it very well because it wasn’t dripping all over the place when I opened it, yay! I applied it to my face starting from the forehead working my way down, and while it was a little wide for my face, I found it fit fairly well for a sheet mask. There was hardly any serum left in the package but I did dip my hand in and put that little bit of excess in my dΓ©colletΓ©. I was happy with how it stayed in place for the duration of my masking, and pleased that it lasted about 25 minutes before it started to dry out. When I removed it my skin felt very hydrated, a little bit tacky, but not at all tight. The tacky feeling diminished once I applied my moisturizer, which soaked into my skin beautifuly. My face feels nice and balanced now, and looks refreshed and healthy. It also still feels so soft from Babyfacial yesterday ☺️ I would say this one is a definite win! πŸ˜„πŸ’¦ Dry skin rejoice πŸ™ŒπŸ» 
My lips needed a little love too, so I used some of the Banana lip balm! 🍌 it’s the best banana scent ever and feels really great on my lips! I’ll be reaching for this often πŸ˜„β€οΈ

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@bakeamuffin Oooh, yay! Chia Seed Creme Shop for the win! I’m happy you liked it! It seems like everyone is liking this one! I think this will be the next one I use! 

I’ll be adding that Banana lip balm to my next order! – (and a couple others, of courseπŸ˜‰) It sounds yummy πŸ˜‹ 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yay @bakeamuffin, so very happy these two worked out for you!  The Chia Seed mask really is quite hydrating, isn't it?!  πŸ™‚  "Dry skin rejoice" - LOVE that! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi it totally is!! My skin is still feeling quite hydrated today and no dry areas!! πŸ˜„ I’m really happy with this one, thanks again for sending it my way ❀️

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Good news @bakeamuffinπŸ™‚ The first time I used the Chia Seed mask, I was taken aback (in the best way) by how hydrating it was.  ❀️  I was hoping your skin would respond well to it - yay! πŸ™‚

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@bakeamuffin the banana lip balm looks so fun πŸ˜„ Having a go-to lui balm in every room of the house is a necessity!!!

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

@eshoe that is so true, I find I apply more lip balm when it’s readily available. It really helps that this one smells so good, I find myself reaching for it very often 😊🍌

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I am way super behind on posting pics from this week!

This was my first time trying this Creme Shop mask and i really enjoyed it! Fit wise, it was VERY large and the under-nose-strip was very small. This seems to be the case with most of the non-fusion Creme Shop masks i have used. Not a big deal and not a deal breaker, just something to be aware of. This one also had lots of essence left in the package so i smoothed it on my hands and elbows. My skin was very happy the next morning - i would definitely use this one again πŸ™‚

 

 

Wednesday:

Also a new Creme Shop mask for me! Same fit as the mask referenced earlier but much less serum left in the package. This one smelled a little herb-y (i guess as one would expect) but it wasn't overwhelming or too much. Nice and moisturizing! Would use again πŸ™‚

 

 

Today:

Started today off by shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale while masking with the Cold Brew sheet mask - a great way to start the morning πŸ™‚ I do wish it smelled stronger of coffee but it's a great mask. Out of the 3, i think i would repurchase this one first.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@scott1201, great masking so far each day this week!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@scott1201, now that is a fabulous way to spend the morning - shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale while masking away with the Cold Brew face mask.  ❀️ ❀️ ❀️  Gonna keep on the lookout for any posts on the haul thread about your finds from the Nordies sale.  πŸ™‚

 

Happy to hear these masks worked out well for you!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

These are some good ones, @scott1201! I have the Chia one but have yet to use it! - by the sound of yours and @itsfi’s reviews, this is a great one for moisturizing! Can’t wait to try it! 

The Cold Brew mask is one of my favorites too, but nothing beats that Caffe Mocha one! πŸ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Great masking this week @scott1201! The Cold Brew face mask sounds delightful! Hope you scored some goodies from the sale! πŸ˜„

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

After receiving Babyfacial from @itsfi as a gift, I couldn’t wait to try it - literally! I did my skincare routine a little early so I could get on with masking πŸ˜„ Thank you again Fi ❀️4F264B7B-6FFA-45B4-8549-F1A671D64972.jpeg

  I didn’t line up a sheet mask with this because I wanted to see its full potential, and so that if I had any negative side effects I would be able to pinpoint which product caused it. I read through the instructions carefully and applied Babyfacial to my clean, dry skin. Initially I could feel a strong tingling, especially around my nose where my pores are more prominent, but it quickly dissipated. I set my timer for 20 minutes, and went about my evening. When I rinsed the mask, I was immediately happy with the results; my skin was smooth, soft, and glowy. I applied the Marula oil as suggested and it really sank into my skin leaving it feeling so hydrated and fresh. I didn’t need to apply Lala before bed because my face was still well moisturized and felt comfortable. This morning my skin is clear, smooth, glowing, and just feels *good*. My skin seems to respond very well to the AHA/BHA combo, similar to the extra strength Alpha Beta peels I love. This is a huge win for me, I’m so happy to have Babyfacial join my skincare lineup β˜ΊοΈπŸ’•

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@bakeamuffin So glad you got to try DE TLC,  thanks to @itsfi!! I love the way it makes my skin feel and glad you had the same results!! Enjoy your glowing skin!!😊
