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!

@eshoe Such great masking sessions! It's too bad the Oozoo mask has alcohol, but it sounds like it was great nonetheless!

I've tried the Oozoo Bear Water Bang mask and definitely loved it! I have one more Oozoo Bear Mask to try and I also have the Oozoo Rose Fresh Capsule high up on my list of masks to buy!! 👍

It's so funny that you described the Lapcos mask as having a "hippie" scent! Haha! – when I put on the Hello, Calm mask, my husband told me I smelled like a hippie! 😂 (no offense to the lovely hippies out there! This was not meant as an insult in any way – I love you guys!)😉😊

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Lol @Shosh85 I think I’ve fallen down a rabbit trail of those scents...the Hello Calm started it all! Then it was the Velvet perfume. This mask just fit right in😊 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Love your masking choices @eshoe and the combination of gentle exfoliation, sheet mask and lip mask. The stringy-ness of the Oozoo mask doesn't sound very appealing and I completely understand you being a little weirded out by it; I would be as well. I have this mask in my bin but I don't think it's moving on up in the queue anytime soon. In fact, I may just move it on back. LOL! Smiley Wink I am, however, going to try to use the rose mask later this week.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you, @itsfiSmiley Happy I was so happy to take the Neogen out of hibernation, it is so, so nice! Yeah I just don’t get why alcohol needs to be so prominent in cosmetics. Extending shelf life? Cost? Anyhow, I could go on because it’s just so annoying😖 If you haven’t tried the Rose mask yet, I think you are in for a treat (at least I hope so!). 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yeah @eshoe, I’m with you; alcohol in skincare is not a good thing in my mind, and my already dehydrated skin is definitely not a fan. I think one of the reasons is that it acts as a preservative and I suspect it may make certain products lighter. I’m sure there are other ingredients out there that could do the same but they probably cost more. 

yep @eshoe I remember when I used that oozoo mask, it dri...

yep @eshoe I remember when I used that oozoo mask, it dried my face a bit and made me produce more oil which in turn led to break outs. glad you had some you found that you love!

Re: yep @eshoe I remember when I used that oozoo mask, it dri...

What a let-down, @lmaster! Which has been your favorite Oozoo mask so far?

Re: yep @eshoe I remember when I used that oozoo mask, it dri...

@eshoe i have not tried the Aurora yet, but I loved the oozoo bear hydrate oneUnidentified iUnidentified 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe how does the Tatcha lip mask compare to the Laneige lip mask?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

 @GalPalVal17-if there were any lip mask that best compares to the Kissu, it would be the Laneige lip masks. There are a few very minor differences: the Kissu is slightly glossier,  also it is completely unscented whereas the Laneige ones are all scented. Also, the price. The Kissu is $30 for 9g, or $3.33/gram, and the Laneige is $20 for 20g, or $1/gram. If you get one of the holiday sets, you get the little silicone spatula as well, which is a great deal I think! 

 

Personally, I prefer scents in my beauty products, and was a little disappointed that the Kissu with peach extracts didn’t have a peach scent. I do love the formula and extra shine, but use it only occasionally as a special treat whereas I use the Laneige almost nightly (that or the Bite). @elise222

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks for the feedback @eshoe. I would definitely try the Kissu if I got it in a set. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ooh what a great masking day! How do you like the Tatcha kissu mask?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I love the Kissu, @elise222-especially the adorable little golden spatula that comes with it! It has a similar quite similar to Laneige’s lip masks, it stays put and doesn’t budge throughout the night. I end up wearing it during the day as well!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

My forgotten mask would be HERBIVORE - Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask 

Spoiler
This one was buried way underneath the pile! I remember I liked it, but with all the new masks coming out, it deddefinit got lost is the mix. I applied this with a mask spatula brush, left it on for 20 min. Wiped it off with a damp makeup eraser. And instantly my face was brighter and more soft and clear. The dullness from the day was gone! I'll have to keep this one in my rotationIMG_20181106_193915932.jpg

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

yay glad this worked out for you @lmaster ! I always thought this one was nice but not as good as the DE Baby Face

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yeah @Kim888 it's definitely a runner up to the de!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster Yay for kicking the dullness away! I love the sound of bright and soft skin! So happy to hear you liked it! 👍

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85 so thankful for this challenge to really get me to search through and find some great masks!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I remembered I had this one, too @lmaster, so I've been using a few times a week for the last couple weeks. I use an AHA serum regularly, so I didn't think it would do much, but I agree with you. My skin definitely feels softer after I use it, and has usually looked brighter as well. I don't really like the smell, but I am pleasantly surprised with the results.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@snoflakefaerie same here, I can't stand the smell lol and I completely forgot to put that in my review, but it's results are worth it, I'll suffer in silence 😂

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I remember that mask, @lmaster! This is like a trip down memory lane lol. I think last year’s skin wonderland or some other set had it? I still have an Herbivore Coco Rose Scrub and Lip Balm from one or more of those sets. A brand that has products that last and last! The scent kind of bothered me on that one but I finished it. Can’t bring myself to use up the Luna oil DS though.
