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!

Last night’s masking:Cocovit, Omorovicza, Banobagi, & more OmoroviczaCocovit, Omorovicza, Banobagi, & more Omorovicza

 

Spoiler
Last night after a single oil cleanse, I applied the OMOROVICZA - Thermal Cleansing Balmand left it on for about 10 minutes. It’s technically not a mask but I love the scent and it’s such a soothing balm that I like to use it as such; this is an A+ for me. After rinsing, I tried the (B)anobagi Vita Cocktail Foil Mask. It’s a brightening mask, and yes, I looked pretty reflective wearing it! It’s a 2-part foil mask that fits great and has an essence that *almost* edges on a jelly but not quite. I left it on a good 1/2 hour, could have left it on longer but the Skyn Eyegels I had on underneath it were bothering me🙄 I would give the Banobagi a A-/B+.

The Cocovit is a Orange Basil Lip Balm that I would only recommend using for elbows/heels before putting on socks. It’s runny and lumpy at the same time. C-, only because it’s natural and that gives it a boost😆

I removed and patted on a bit of essence (the AMOREPACIFIC - Vintage Single Extract Essence
), my La La, and then the OMOROVICZA - Midnight Radiance Maskwhich was the first time I’ve tried this. It has a clean, somewhat medicinal scent and absorbed fairly quickly for a gel. It wasn’t tacky at all by the time I fell asleep, which was wonderful. My skin was very soft this morning, so I decided to make it a no-makeup day. I will try this out for a few nights, it’s very nice, good for summer I imagine. Due to the price alone, I wouldn’t consider it a serious contender in my everyday routine, though I’m sure that is necessary for consistent/visible results. I love my YTTP Dream Cream but if I had no budget, I would likely sneak this in to my nightly routine🤔 Will add a grade after I’ve tried it for a week. @Guessgal

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oh nice! I have a sample of the midnight radiance mask too! I love the blue color of course. Smiley Very Happy Where did you pick up the mini @eshoe?  Isn't the Thermal Cleansing Balm just the best! I'm stocked up for the year!  Decided to buy a 4th kit at LookFantastic now that it is on sale... same price I paid back in Oct when it was a pre-sale at Bath & Unwind

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I’ve been interested in Lookfantastic’s box, @veronika23, I like that it comes with a mini magazine (or is it FS? I’ve never tried it but might give it a whirl sometime this year). The mini is from from sister in law. I stocked her and her Mom up on sheet masks for awhile😉 This is well worth it, though I had some peeling with it this morning (kind of like I did with the Glow Recipe Watermelon, but not as intense; not sure if that is normal?).

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@eshoe  lookfantastic beauty sub box? Magazine or mask?  Sorry a little lost here. Smiley Very Happy

 

Oh that's nice of her and nice of you to stock them up! Smiley Happy  Oh... peeling... hope your skin is ok.  I didn't know you could have peeling with the GR...

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

You know the Lookfantastic sub might be US only @veronika23. This is from MSA:B1D2A05D-6E86-4E85-9EA0-02F9C7C6BF07.jpeg

 

I think the GR just left a film on my face, and that’s what peeled off, as it didn’t irritate my skin in the slightest. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @eshoe! I knew they had a sub box but never saw one with a magazine... well the only one I really paid attention to is the special new year one... though I didn't get it. I find the idea of the sub boxes fun but it would be a waste for me... I cancelled my ipsy after one or two boxes. Smiley Very Happy

 

Oh ok. Good to know! Thank you. Smiley Happy

@eshoe I'm supposed to be getting a sample of the omorovi...

@eshoe I'm supposed to be getting a sample of the omorovicza mask, can't wait to try it

Re: @eshoe I'm supposed to be getting a sample of the omorovi...

Ooh I hope you get it soon @lmaster, very curious to hear your thoughts😉

Re: @eshoe I'm supposed to be getting a sample of the omorovi...

👍😊 @eshoe

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oooooh!!!! That AP essence @eshoe! 😍 It was the first product I used up during the Deluxe December challenge - it’s just soooo nice! ♥️ I want to go through my other essences so it’s on my list for the November sale.

 

I was intrigued by the Cocovit until I read your review of it. “Runny and lumpy” are not appealing qualities in a lip balm. Sounds like a big pass. The Omorovicza mask sounds interesting; will be interested in how you ultimately grade it. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi I will have to go back and look at your notes on it. It’s a nice essence, I’ve never used it before so I picked up a sample while shopping for my elf😊

Mask of the Week Challenge!

not the challenge, but had to use this rose essence mask from mamonde. this is the second one I've tried, and I love it! I'm a rose lover, so this smelled like a dream to me! fit great, absorbed nicely as well. left it on for 20 minutes, directions say to leave it on for 10-20 minutes. my skin felt amazing and hydrated. I will use these masks indefinitely. A+

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yay for another great mask! Never tried/heard of this brand before @lmaster

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I didn't either @veronika23 until I started seeing others using them on here 😉

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Hahaha this is a great enabling thread! Smiley Very Happy @lmaster

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Isn't that the truth! @veronika23

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yup! Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy @lmaster

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Just bought em @veronika23 lol 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This one sounds fantastic @lmaster - results, scent, ... 💗💗This line from Mamonde seems to be agreeing with your skin - that's awesome!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

These are great masks!! @itsfi 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Have you tried any skincare products from the brand, other than sheet masks @lmaster
