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


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 @eshoe 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



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!

I love this packaging, I am such a sucker for recycled paper looks. Have a fun weekend @scott1201!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yes! I feel like good packaging can move the needle on an average mask for me. I’m like, hmm this mask was fine but it had GREAT packaging so I like it 😂 @Aaliaa

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

When I look at the variety of packaging for sheet masks, what I am really thinking is 'wow, they have some seriously smart marketing teams,' @scott1201. That's a job that would be fun!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@scott1201 I’ve been wanting to try this one– I’ve heard good reviews about it!! So happy it did so well for you!! 

Have a safe but fun, plane ride and trip!! ✈️

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I switched things up a little yesterday (Thursday) with the Saborino Mixed Berries Moisturizing Morning Mask.  While it was Day 4 of the morning mask, I thought I’d give it a try in the evening instead.  There are plenty of times when I’m either too tired or too lazy in the evenings to go through an entire masking routine, so I figured why not?! Let’s see how this ‘morning mask’ holds up through the night.  I double cleansed, then used the morning mask and before calling it a night, applied a sleeping mask.  Woke up this morning with soft, supple, clear skin. 


Since I had planned on using the morning mask for my evening routine last night, Thursday’s morning masking involved the Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask applied to just my T-zone followed by The Crème Shop Rose Water Infused Sheet Mask, which was a gift from the fabulous @bakeamuffin(thank you!).   


There’s a scent to this sheet mask and while it did not smell like rose water to me, I’m not sure what I would liken it to.  The mask itself is made of cotton and in terms of weight or thickness, it’s your average sheet mask.  Directions say to leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes; I probably left it on for 30 and I’d say that was about the right amount of time for my dehydrated, combo skin. When I removed the mask, there was just a little bit of essence on my face to be patted in.  Once absorbed, my skin looked and felt hydrated and it seemed like it had a slight, dewy glow to it as well.  Smiley Happy

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yes for glowing skin, I second that, @itsfi! I have this one in my stash and haven't tried it. Was really hoping for an overpowering rose scent but I will re-set my expectations lol Smiley Happy

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yay for glowing skin 🙌🏻 I hope your skin continues to feel and look great throughout the day @itsfi😄💕  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

All thanks to you @bakeamuffin!  <3 <3 Thanks so much for this mask!  It's a nice one!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Awe you’re so welcome @itsfi☺️❤️💕  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks for your reviews @itsfi

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

My pleasure, @Aaliaa!  I love hearing about and reading other people's thoughts on the masks they are using. Looking forward to seeing how the chart you and @eshoe are working on turns out - thank you both again for putting it all together!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Great review, @itsfi!!  The berry mask is really sounding great– it’s good to hear your skin woke up happy!

I really enjoyed the Rose mask – so happy you liked it too! I don’t recall much about the scent– I think I remember it being pretty light, though. 

Another win for The Creme Shop! 🌹🙌

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you @Shosh85! Agree, scent was on the light side, just can’t figure out what it smelled like. I’m always happy when I find a mask that works well. 😊

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

We are excited to begin testing ourMasking Challenge Survey! Our goal is to ultimately to have a searchable spreadsheet to view each other’s critiques. This will be a separate link, but we need to test it out first to see how it imports data, so that when it is live, it is accurate and reliable. There are 3 short sections, with an option for a detailed review at the end. We welcome your feedback, please post to this thread and tag both @Aaliaa and I so we can make improvements before finalizing the form.


 Please PM either of us for the link. Thank you!
