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

 

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!

Shew, guys. It's been a crazy couple of days! I haven't masked as much - mostly due to the fact that there was a GIANT BUG in my shower (ugh, Texas) the other morning so i'm steering clear of my main bathroom right now... 

 

I did manage to do a little non-challenge-matching masking the other night though. An oldie & repurchase but a goodie - Korres 2 Step Wild Rose Peel. My skin had been going through some hormonal acne and this really helped calm my skin while also treating the breakouts.

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yuck to the giant bug, @scott1201😱 but that mask is a repurchase on my skincare list, too. It’s fun to see someone else who enjoys it as much as I do. My skin is so, so soft afterwards 🙂

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@scott1201 Don’t let that big bug push you around– kill the nasty thing, haha!

Great masking! Love the combo– glad it’s effective!! 👍

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh that sounds nice @scott1201! Anything that helps with acne 🙌🏻 

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@scott1201 Hope the critter is gone! Yuck 🤢. I really hope that your breakouts go away soon! 🤞🏼I’m rooting for you! ❣️

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@scott1201  

Giant bug?  Ewwww...

Korres peel?  Oooooh... 🙂

 

This peel set looks nice!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I used the Starskin Hollywood Hand Model Nourishing Double-Layer Hand Mask Gloves last night. 

IMG_4684.JPG

It fit my hands pretty well; these are smaller in size than the Sephora hand masks.  These hand mask gloves have a "L" and "R" on the sticker tab to denote which hand each glove is meant to fit.  The sticker tab is not very long at all, which might be an issue for someone with smaller hands than mine.  It smells like lotion, but not any fragrance in particular.  I left it on for about half an hour and massaged the remaining lotion into my hands.  The lotion absorbed quickly and easily and my hands felt soft and moisturized last night after using the mask and also this morning.

 

I received the mask as part of a gwp, but I looked it up online and it's $10 for the hand mask.  It's a nice hand mask, really a good fit for my hands, and while I wouldn't say 'no' if I received it as a gift or as part of a gwp, $10 is a little pricey for a hand mask and I probably would not purchase it for myself.  The Sephora hand masks are half the price.  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I like the packaging on this @itsfi. You always have such interesting masks!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @Aaliaa! 🙂  I've seen this brand in the stores or online but have never tried anything from them.  The mask is nice, if on the pricey side.  One of these days, I may try one of their face masks.  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi This sounds great! I agree $10 is a little pricey. I’ve found the Sephora ones to be pretty decent, especially for the price! 👍

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Totally agree @Shosh85!  It was a nice treat to receive as a gift with purchase and I'm happy that I was able to try it out.  There are many hand masks out there that are just as effective but at a better price point, like the Sephora masks! 

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi I’m glad that you enjoyed your hand mask and I agree that 10$ is a bit expensive since Sephora has some great ones available!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Sounds like you’re ready to be a Hollywood hand model after using

this moisturizing hand mask @itsfi 😉 haha 

It’s nice to have received as a gwp, but I’m glad you didn’t pay $10 for it, that sounds like a lot for a hand

mask. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

hahahahaha! 😂😂  If the mask turned my hands into ones that were "hand model" worthy, I *might* pay $10 for the mask! LOL! @bakeamuffin

 I took this evening to relax and indulge a little in some reading and quiet time, and reached for Babyfacial again (followed by Marula oil and Lala). I really just love how radiant, smooth, and healthy this combo makes my skin. It feels like Babyfacial takes away everything on the surface so that Marula and Lala can penetrate deep into my skin for long lasting moisture. 
I also did anhair treatment using Olaplex no3, I like to leave itmin for a while so it sat in my hair for
anout an hour before I rinsed it out. This is a HG for me, I’m nearly through this bottle and will be repurchasing soon. My hair was basically not getting longer until I added this guy to my haircare routine 😊

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This picture makes me so happy =). A good book, a great mask and some good old Hollywood gossip on the side. @bakeamuffin

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@bakeamuffin Sounds like you had a relaxing masking session! I have to try the Olaplex, it sounds great!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This pic is like, whoa lifestyle goals 😉 @bakeamuffin

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@scott1201 all that is missing is wine and chocolate 😉🍫🍷

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@bakeamuffin I can seriously feel the coziness through the picture – I love it! 

What a fantastic skincare line up! That DE trio sounds amazing! I need to jump on the bandwagon and try out more DE products! 🙌

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I’ve had a really positive experience with DE, I’ve introduced one product at a time and my skin has seriously never been better. I was just looking back at old pictures and the difference is really obvious. I know the products don’t work for everyone, but my dry sensitive skin really likes them 🙂 It May be worth looking into some of the products - the Jelly cleanser is great 😉
