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!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@RebeccaBT this cleanser (which I use as a mask) never fails to give my face an extra brightening when it looks dull. Love the rich, earthy scent and it’s such a gentle exfoliant, perfect for winter skin!

love those leaders! @eshoe I need some r&r right now!! lol

Re: love those leaders! @eshoe I need some r&r right now!! lol

You are not even joking right now, @lmaster

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Not the challenge of the week but wanted to do a lil midweek masking to brighten up my skin a bit. The rose hips mask was great and I loved the way it smelled. It had a cinnamon scent but not too strong. It applied and washed off easily. The sheet mask also smelled lovely. Can’t quite describe it but was definitely pleasant. Didn’t leave my face sticky after patting in the remaining serum which is great  381FF38C-80AE-43F9-BAE8-8E3213872146.jpeg

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@GalPalVal17, Ooh, a cinnamon scented mask? The Mario Badescu sounds great. I love the name of the sheet mask! Great masking combo!

@GalPalVal17 those both look and sound amazing 😍

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oooh I have that Mario mask, @GalPalVal17! I have only used it once and didn’t notice a cinnamon scent, now I need to go back and use it again soon. Do you apply it over your entire face, or just on certain areas? I am going to try it as more of a spot treatment next timeSmiley Happy

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe I do have a sensitive nose and sometimes scents are just stronger for me than others. I did apply this over my whole face. I should consider trying more masks as spot treatments. I'm sure my whole face doesnt always need the same care. I have multimasked before and that is fun.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

“you don’t need that!” 

“look at the variety...” 👀

Thanks @Mcakes, looks like there are quite a few good masks in that set!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Last night’s masking: I decided to do some major exfoliating so I started with BOSCIA - Exfoliating Peel Geland then followed up by using TO AHA 30%+BHA 2% Peeling solution ( it’s not available in Canada so I had ordered it from CultBeauty.uk ) and left it on for 15 minutes then rinsed it off. I followed by using Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion ( it’s more of a toner than a lotion ) . Afterwards I used the Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Face Mask. This mask has a clay-like consistency ( it contains Kaolin ) and contains a wide range of soothing ingredients ( it does however contain many essential oils that some might find irritating ) You are supposed to leave it on for 10 minutes and then wipe away the excess but my skin just drank it all up so I didn’t have any excess to wipe off. I used the Hylamide HA Blur ( it’s like a primer, contains silicones and hyaluronic acid ) over my face in order to seal in the moisture that the Origins mask provided . If you have oily skin and/or acne you might want to reconsider this step but my skin is very dry and I need all the moisture I can get! I might suggest, if you want to use a primer for occlusion purposes, that you find a cheaper option than the primers used for foundation application during daytime. I used the Origins Sensory Therapy Peace of Mind on my temples to relax and help me fall asleep because I’ve been having a hard time falling asleep. This is also a great product to use to alleviate headaches without using medication.82C0B65E-B068-4A71-AA9A-A0DB27095171.jpeg

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

The Origins Mega-Mushroom line sounds so good for dry skin in the cold weather @keana1! 🍄😊

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

It’s great for winter 🥶 @itsfi ! I really like this Mega-Mushroom line ! It’s very soothing for dry winter skin! 😉 

those all look wonderful @keana1 sorry you are having tro...

those all look wonderful @keana1 sorry you are having troubles falling sleep! 😣

Re: those all look wonderful @keana1 sorry you are having tro...

Thanks @lmaster ! My sleep problems are starting to get better lately! 😉

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Your routine last night sounds so relaxing, @keana1! Reminds me to use my Aveda oils tucked in my medicine cabinet for some extra soothingSmiley Happy How often do you do this multi-layer exfoliating?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yesterday was my first time @eshoe ! My skin didn’t feel irritated at all which is surprising! Maybe because I used different Origins Mega-Mushroom products to counteract the potential irritation?

Yesterday was a loooong day, but I knew that going in and reached for these two beauties in the morning to prep my skin and lips. The Oozoo Face In-Shot Mask (Nutrient) has been a well regarded mask and was gifted to me by @eshoe's very thoughtful and kind daughter (thank you, sweet girl! The beauty box you specially curated for me is a hit and this one is among them!). The syringe is inserted into the nozzle, you press the piston, the serum inside the syringe (which looks clear) is injected into the mask inside and you open the packet and apply the sheet mask containing a light, thin, milky serum onto your face for 10-20 minutes. I probably had the mask on for closer to 30 minutes and patted in the remaining serum into my skin.  My skin is slightly tacky to the touch after doing so, but that disappears easily as I continue with my morning skincare routine, which included the SEPHORA COLLECTION - Lip Balm & Scrub - Honey for soft lips (this is my second or third tube - love). I know that there are a few posters here, including eshoe, who are fans of The Oozoo sheet mask, and it's easy to see why. My skin felt moisturized throughout the day; I didn't have any issues with dryness or flaking. This will definitely be a mask I purchase for myself. Smiley Happy    

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I have yet to try this OOZOO mask @itsfi ! @eshoe also gifted me the same mask ( thank you @eshoe ! ) I’m so glad that that you’ve gotten great results, I can’t wait for winter to end ( it hasn’t started officially yet 🙄 ) to use it or any other sheet masks because they feel sooo cold 🥶 when I use them !
