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.

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.

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!

 

Mask of the Week Challenge!

Using my staple Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding treatment tonight with Burts lip mask and Elf eye masks. The lip mask is a keeper. Picture of the my moisturized lips. This is perfect for winter months. Still not a fan of the eye masks. My under eye skin does look more hydrated, but I'm still not wowed.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@IndyQT317 I think i'm the only person around who hasn't tried the Boscia Pore Pudding. Everyone raves about it! The BB lip mask sounds like something I'd like to try. Great Masking!

I haven't seen that lip mask before but it sounds great @IndyQT317! I love that boscia mask. And I've been curious about the elf eye masks but I'll definitely pass on them now.

that boscia pudding is one of my faves! @IndyQT317 I've noticed with the eye masks I have that are collagen hydrogel are not very moisturizing, but I'm going to use them up, and not repurchase

Agreed @Imaster. Any recommendations? I have the Sephora Pomegranate one in my stash. Hoping that one will be a better eye mask replacement.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@IndyQT317 I think eye masks are harder to tolerate alone. After you use a gel or clay mask, try the gel eye masks by first placing them on your face and then the sheet mask afterwards. I used to mask them separately and it took forever. This way is much more efficient, just a thought!

I'll keep that tip in mind. I did that tip before one other time by accident honestly. I still didn't have much luck with hydration. I just think I haven't found the best eye mask product for my skincare needs. Most anti aging products I cannot use for ingredient sensitivities. So my brand picks a pretty limited.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@IndyQT317, I see that the Burt’s Bees lip mask is available at the Target near me. It will be mine by the weekend! 🤣😃

@itsfi Let me know how you like it!

Most definitely @IndyQT317! Smiley Happy

for each your undereyes, lips,

and face @IndyQT317, great masking! Too bad to hear the undereye patches weren’t that great but I’ll be keeping my eyes open for the Burt’s Bees lip mask ☺️ It looks delightful!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I love that Boscia mask!  One of my favorite non-sheet masks. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

It was on of those days today.  Instead of drinking a bottle of wine I relaxed and masked using wine Smiley Happy .  I think I've seen this posted about on this thread before.  It's definitely not a hydrogel mask but it was relaxing.  After masking I followed up with Josie Maran Milk and Drunk Elephant eye cream for extra hydration and sealed it in with Argan Oil.

JOSIE MARAN - Pure Argan Milk™ Intensive Hydrating Treatment DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango™ Multivitamin Eye Cream JOSIE MARAN - 100 percent Pure Argan Oil

IMG_7347.jpgI picked up a few of these on sale at Bath & Body Works. I left it on for 20 minutes. It fit nicely and didn't feel tacky at all! When I removed it, I massaged a bit of the excess in. My skin felt calm and looked a bit brighter. It wasn't a mask that stood out but it was definitely relaxing and I enjoyed the experience.

I'm curious about other sheet masks and wondering if anyone has any experience with Facetory or other subscriptions/sites.  Any input is welcomed.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@mishanyc I have been subbing to Facetory for awhile now and they have been consistently good. Some thoughts:

 

- The 7-Luxe is the way to go with this one. I tried the 4, and the quality of masks was less in my opinion. 

 

- The subs geared toward your skin type are ok, however they repeat the same masks 3 months in a row. If I like a mask, I will buy more; I don’t want to ‘try’ the same masks for 3 consecutive months. I can usually tell pretty quickly if I like a mask or not.

 

- I cancelled this month, as one of the masks they are including I absolutely cannot stand (the 23 years cocoon), another was included in June’s sub and I didn’t really care for it, and a third is from their new in-house brand. I totally support them launching their own line; I think overall their curation is excellent! However, if I am paying for a ‘Luxe’ box, I feel the masks should be on that level. 2-3 Step masks, bio cellulose, foil, or otherwise unique and truly luxe masks.

 

All that being said, I can’t wait to see what they have in store for next month! I definitely plan to resub, I think their customer service is outstanding and they are very responsive to any issues you may have (24 hours response is the standard, but sometimes it’s quicker!). I trust them as a company, I just hope they bring the ‘Lux’ back into their Lux-7!

 

Sorry for the exhaustive post. I just have thoughts on masking 😂

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@mishanyc I second many of @eshoe thoughts. I also subscribe to the facetory 7 masks a month and I feel like the quality is definitely better than the 4 masks a month. c

 

I also agree that I do the general subscription, not the skin specific one. I like to get different ones every month. 

 

I have been very happy with them - their customer service is great and they are very consistent. 

 

I feel like for me 7 masks a month is the perfect amount. I try to sheet mask 1-2 times a week so this works out well for me. I subscribed originally because I wanted to curb my spending on sheet masks since a lot of them can be expensive, especially from sephora. So I don't find my collection gets too out of control because I don't tend to buy a lot of sheet masks outside of the subscription unless there's something new I want to try or it's something I really love like the Too Cool for School ones. 

 

Including one mask from their in house brand a month doesn't really bother me, I didn't even notice they had until @eshoe pointed it out to me haha but I would be unhappy if it started becoming more geared toward their brand. 

 

 

@mishanyc wine, that's a new one for me! thanks for sharing!

@mishanyc wine, that's a new one for me! thanks for sharing!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

 

That Mask looks sooo great @mishanyc.  I actually get both the Facetory sub box and the Mask Maven Box.  I have to say that these are, hands down, two of my favorite sub boxes that I get every month.  I absolutely love the variety that I get with them and I also use a sheet mask a day so it is really important for me to have a “healthy” stash of them!  I do also supplement the ration I get in these boxes with some $1 or less sheet masks from Amazon (ie, packs of Dermal masks) to get me through the month without it being too outrageously expensive of a habit 😣!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@KrishAtl Thanks for the information.  It sounds great!  Glad to hear it's working for you Smiley Happy  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

It sounds like you had a lovely masking session @mishanyc! You used so many great products! 😃 There are a few people here who subscribe to masking boxes, including Facetory. Tagging @eshoe @KrishAtl @Kim888 - I think they subscribe to Facetory. I do as well but I’m thinking about canceling my subscription. Not because there’s anything wrong with the sub boxes but I have a pretty healthy variety of sheet masks now.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi Thank you!  I appreciate the tagging.

Mask of the Week Challenge!

yesterday afternoon I needed some hydration, so I used Sephora the golden mask. ok guys I would of repurchased this one just for the scent alone lol but overall I loved it, it fit perfect! I left it on for about 25 min. directions say to leave it on for 15 but I needed some extra hydration today, which it delivered! I already repurchased this mask! then at night I did the Fab peel that was included in the 10 day challenge sample. it said to leave on for 1-5 min as tolerated...omg did it burn! I left it on for the 5 min then used a warm makeup eraser to remove. I am already noticing my skin is much more smoother and softer than it's been in awhile, oh and I did wake up with a subtle glow
