Each week features a different theme, as well as a letter of the alphabet for coming up with new masking ideas. 


Please include the brand and name of the mask you are trying out, as well as a photo if possible. Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase. Don't forget to include a grade (thanks to @ShortErica for the idea) to help others along the way.


Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I did @Shosh85. There was a set of Disney Villians sheet masks that I had. I’ve seen some Mickey Mouse ones too a while back. I think at Target at one point but I didn’t discover them in time and missed out on picking those up. @WinglessOne 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  I love honey masks and this one sounds wonderful! I'm not so big strong fragrances, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't mind a strong honey scent! 🍯 Glad to hear this brand is turning out great so far!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ohhhhh this honey mask sounds unbelievable!!! @WinglessOne 

2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

A for Apto Healing Turmeric Mask. And this also checks the pet peeves challenge. Why you ask?.... 1. the color, it reminds me of baby 💩sorry.... so for that alone it makes me not want to try it😬 2. wash off masks that dont come off THAT easy. this definitely needs a cloth toremove ,which i used. But also is strange because it doesnt dry down allthe way🤷 3. Strong smells, it definitely is a smell you can either live with or not. it stays the whole time you have it on- 20 min 4. * didn't affect me that I saw* but reviews have said this can STAIN your skin😳 I think I have 1 more use out of this ds. After removing my skin did feel softer but i think I would like this better if it exfoliated.🤔 I might have to try this again & exfoliate before.....by itself its ok but I like stuff better. 💛💛💛

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee, this is the first I’ve heard of this brand. Just went to look them up after your review. They have some interesting masks, but sounds like this particular one that is just okay. The possibility of it staining your face makes me a bit nervous about it - I can totally see me keeping it on longer than I should, forgetting to take it off and then staining my face. 😳 I’ll be interested though to know how it performs after exfoliating.

yes, that would be a BIG con to walk around with jaundice...

yes, that would be a BIG con to walk around with jaundice looking skin! @itsfi if it stained, I didn't see it but it might be more visible on more fairer skin🤔 the green ( balancing) I did see, near my hairline, it didn't " stain" but I did have to go over it more than once with my cloth. maybe that's what they are talking about....

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  Too bad this one was unimpressive! I'm not so sure I like the sound of it potentially staining skin 😬

Can't love them all @Shosh85 but im ok with that- making...

Can't love them all @Shosh85 but im ok with that- making room for my go tos.🤗

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydeeI tried the Nourishing a Mask from this brand and it turned my skin red and itchy (guessing the culprit is the spirulina?) This one seems like worth a try. The color sounds similar to the KORA Organics Turmeric BHA Brightening Treatment Mask 3.38 oz/ 100 mL

yikes! 😬 @eshoe I do have some others from this line- 🤔...

yikes! 😬 @eshoe I do have some others from this line- 🤔 pomegranate & balancing. Gotta love ipsy

Re: yikes! 😬 @eshoe I do have some others from this line- 🤔...

I hope you share how it goes with the other ones, @sonnydee. I was pretty excited, it looked like it would be a good one!

Re: yikes! 😬 @eshoe I do have some others from this line- 🤔...

Of course @eshoe 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee very interesting,,, I'd be willing to give it a try though 😆

thats the spirit!💛👏 @lmaster i got it in my ipsy bag on...

thats the spirit!💛👏 @lmaster i got it in my ipsy bag one month but I have gotten others as well, maybe it'll come around again

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  Aw, I know some (okay, many) folk don't like the scent of turmeric, but I do. I'm glad you still got some good results from this mask! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Well this mask definitely does turmeric justice! @WinglessOne I'm in the can stand it group. Not something I would want my deodorant or perfume to smell, like but i can deal with. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

An Apricot and Papaya masking from last week. Fruity!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oooh, apricot and papaya @eshoe. Makes me think of summer. Nice progress on the Origins mask. 👍🏼 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Slow but steady, @itsfi ☺️ Happy Fourth to you!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Love that you dueled the SF and Yttp @eshoe very good to know!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thanks, @lmaster! I feel like there are so many that need to be paired up, especially as I am trying to whittle down the contents of my drawers.
