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

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.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe no, I haven't tried it and I really haven't tried much from Farmacy at all but it's a brand that I have really wanted to explore a little bit more because everyone seems to rave about their products!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

The Honey Potion is one of my favorite masks, @CookieGirl1, but it doesn’t get much use in the summer as it’s already so hot! Can’t wait to start putting it on regular rotation again.

 

I’ve tried a few of their products, the Honey Savior is a good overnight mask for REALLY dry skin. I found some of their face masks (coconut gel sheet masks) at TJ Maxx the other day, might be N opportunity to find some of their products for less just to see what you think😉

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I wonder if I have this in my stash...I think I grabbed it when it was a 100 pt reward a few months back. Sorry it was so-so, @CookieGirl1. They can't all be winners.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Lazybeautybeast it's not bad by any means but it's one of those masks that feels good for the few minutes you have it on but then once you wash it off it's pretty much "done" and I don't really notice that it's done anything useful for my skin at all.

that sounds really intriguing!! @CookieGirl1

that sounds really intriguing!! @CookieGirl1

Re: that sounds really intriguing!! @CookieGirl1

@lmaster You can actually even get the two in a set--OLEHENRIKSEN - Sauna Glow™ - Warming-Cooling Scrub & Mask Set

Re: that sounds really intriguing!! @CookieGirl1

Thanks for the info! @CookieGirl1 I'm trying to heart your reply,,,uughh but it's being difficult!

I do love a few of the olehenriksen products, like the Wa...

I do love a few of the olehenriksen products, like the Walnut scrub 😍 @CookieGirl1 this one sounds nice!

awwwww @eshoe what a bummer! I am in love with the scent...

awwwww @eshoe what a bummer! I am in love with the scent of the Walnut scrub! so sorry your skin can't handle it

Re: awwwww @eshoe what a bummer! I am in love with the scent...

I went through 2 jars of it and broke into the tube, @lmaster before realizing my skin had changed and needs very gentle (and rare🙄) exfoliation. I used to use it 2-3 times a week, no problem! 

Re: awwwww @eshoe what a bummer! I am in love with the scent...

Yeah I'm realizing I don't need any more than once a week of that, I usually use the Walnut scrub once every two weeks @eshoe

Re: I do love a few of the olehenriksen products, like the Wa...

I have an almost full tube of the Walnut Scrub and my skin cannot handle it, @lmaster😭 there are not enough crying emojis to describe my discontent with the whole matter!

Re: I do love a few of the olehenriksen products, like the Wa...

@lmaster I also really enoy Ole Henriksen products in general.  One of my favorites is the OLEHENRIKSEN - Pore-Balance™ Facial Sauna Scrub--it feels so nice and it honestly does warm up!

Re: I do love a few of the olehenriksen products, like the Wa...

I also enjoy the OH Sauna Facial Scrub @CookieGirl1, I only use it once a week since I don’t want to over exfoliate! I love it so much, I even have a backup, call me insecure 😟....LOL 

Re: I do love a few of the olehenriksen products, like the Wa...

@keana1 nope, not insecure.  I have a backup, too :-). It seems like inevitably I fall in love with a product and then it gets discontinued so I'm better off if I have at I have at least one in reserve if it's something that I really like.

Re: I do love a few of the olehenriksen products, like the Wa...

@keana1 Edit: I take it back. That even SOUNDS insecure, LOL.

Re: I do love a few of the olehenriksen products, like the Wa...

@CookieGirl1 LOL 😆!

RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Soooo very excited to finally try out this gem from my September Beauteque beauty box. Got it last week, but it had to sit and wait cause it was kinda complicated!! Lol!! It was sooo fun! It comes all packaged up in its own mixing bowl. You open it all up and squeeze out packet 1 into bowl. It was a jelly-like glittery substance. Then add packet 2 which was a very finely milled powder. Stir it all together until smooth and apply. It’s a Peel-off Mask. And I gotta tell ya, it felt like I was making glitter-slime with my daughter and it looked like one of her glitter-slime recipes when it was done and it felt like glitter slime on my fingers!!! You are supposed to leave the mask on for 30 minutes and then peel it off. I hate Peel Off masks....cause they hurt! This one was the best peel off mask ever!!! It didn’t hurt at all! It was so pretty on and it smelled so nice! Like a floral shampoo, with a light scent, not heavy. In fact if this was a shampoo, it would be one of the best smelling shampoos in the world!!! So anyway, it never dried down to the point of “attaching” to my face the way a peel-off mask generally does. It became like a jelly mask when it “dried down”, so the removal was extremely gentle with no tugging or pulling. My skin is glowing now! I love it!!

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I’m usually hesistant about peel off masks but this one sounds like a good one @KrishAtl. Glad to hear you had good results from it.

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

How innovative and fun @KrishAtl! I’m glad you got the chamce to try this one, it sounds like it went very well! 😊 it’s really nice that it didn’t dry down and attach to your skin! 

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Lol. It definitely look complicated @KrishAtl. It sounds like it as worth it though!
