Mask of the Week Misc. Info & Previous Year's Links:


To Post:

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.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

D is for Dermalogica Dermalogica Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask

It fizzes/bubbles which fits the theme!



Oh this mask is weird. It starts with these little bubbles (left) when it makes contact with the skin and tingles a bit. Then it starts to really bubble up (top right) and tickles. Then this dissipates and it all falls flat almost (bottom right). It says to leave on 3-5 minutes. I think this was closer to 5 minutes wear time this time.
I tried this because of the theme this week, but also because my skin/pores have been feeling really congested (maskne, bad adherence to nighttime routine, etc). My partner and i each tired it a few times before, but I don't think we left it on long enough, I didnโ€™t want it to cause any irritation. Leaving it on for longer definitely was better, and I had no irritation.
This has a sulfur scent (its up there on the ingredient list), but isn't too overpowering.
My skin definitely looked better after, and this morning, but I followed up with the Pharmacy salicylic acid toner and inky list retinol. I think it definitely helped clear my pores a bit, but maybe with more uses would really get in to the more congested ones.
B for now. Will keep testing.

Last week's

Feet mask, from the Sephora Collection for Calming SEPHORA COLLECTION Foot Mask Lavender 


Or at least, calming for me. Last week, I had to trek out to the FedEx by the airport to pick up a work package. I thought it would be relatively easy to get to with transit, but alas, they're always so far away from the actual airport. So I ended up walking around fields for a while and my feet were killing me.

That night I put on the lovely SC feet mask overnight to calm and soothe my red angry feet. I usually wear them after wondering around convention centres for work conferences so only wear them for 30 min to an hour. Last week, though, I wore them overnight. Luckily no cut off for circulation and no falling off. There was still serum left to be rubbed into my feet the next morning. My feet felt SO nice and relaxed. I generally do not recommend to leave it on overnight. I have smaller feet and I didnt tape it too tight, so it was roomy but this might not work for everyone.
I'm a little sad these are being discontinued (they're already gone from the Canada site, it looks like), but I'll try the new clean ones when is available.

I've been using the whish foot mask once a week overnight to exfoliate and it is lovely especially when going to get a pedicure is impossible. But just thought I'd highlight for feet mask week.

That mask would be a good one for those just getting into...

That mask would be a good one for those just getting into bubble masks. there's some out there that bubbles get a bit out of control & I end up having to get them out of my eyes ๐Ÿ˜’ @haleyvvvv hopefully the new feet masks are just as good

Re: That mask would be a good one for those just getting into...

Oh no, @sonnydee!! Getting in the eyes sounds unfortunate. Will be looking to avoid those.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv  Love the pictures ๐Ÿ˜ƒ - bubble masks are definitely entertaining! Glad it could help make your skin look a little better! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you, @Shosh85!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv well that is a gorgeous photo! Sorry it was the cause of so much pain, though - ugh! Happy you had the foot mask, and used it when you needed it. Hope your feet are recovering nicely today ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Beautiful, but dangerous, since I was walking in a bike path on the road. I'm definitely a city gal. My feet felt much better after the mask, thank you, @eshoe!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yeah I can totally relate, @haleyvvvv! You certainly made lemonade out of lemons there, by sharing this pic:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv thanks for the step by step with pictures! Very interesting mask.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you, @ShortErica!! It is an interesting mask, lol.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv I love the whish mask too

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster Definitely a good find from FFF, although I wish it had less of an intense scent. Still really like the ease and results.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv I'm curious to read more of your thoughts once you try the Dermalogica Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask more!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I'm going to try to use it more regularly to see if that helps. It says to be used 2-3x a week, but i was hoping it could be more ad hoc, @greeneyedgirl107.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I'd describe this more as creepy than weird, but weird works too ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚




Holika Holika Milky Strawberry Jelly Sheet Mask

This is a thin, meshy cotton sheet mask that was saturated with a clear jelly serum and had a creepy character design on it. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿฅด There wasn't a discernible scent just a typical sheet mask kind of smell. The fit was a little wonky - too long at the forehead and chin, the eye holes were just a bit too small and the mouth part didn't line up right so the strip between the nose and lip kept getting into my mouth - so I just chopped it off. The adherence was ok, except for the chin that didn't seem to want to stay put. I kept the mask on for about a half hour. There was some light tackiness after removing that absorbed in less than 10 minutes. My face looked a little brighter/less dull and my skin felt moisturized and had a nice glow.

I really enjoyed the results from this one and love the jelly serum. I'd use this one again but probably wouldn't repurchase because it just wasn't the most comfortable mask to wear and the results were good, but nothing super amazing.



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Iโ€™ve wondered about this mask @Shosh85! Strawberry jelly sounds wonderful, of course, and I was curious about the design on the mask; now I know. It is a bit creepy, though the cocoon mask you used is hard to top - that was your first mask on the first mask thread, right?!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Well that is probably one of the more unusual mask images I've seen, @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜„ I don't know how you manage to find these. Even eye flaps. just wow! Lol thank you for sharing the photo (both of them, they are pretty entertaining!!).

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Yup, "entertaining" is one word I'd use to describe this one! Haha! It was pretty good overall ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 no strawberry scent!! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  Haha! Right? A non-scented mask is fine, but a strawberry scent definitely would've been great ๐Ÿ“

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This is Wonderful @Shosh85 - thanks for sharing a picture of the sheet mask. A little better fit, a little more comfy and this one sounds like it would be a winner. Overall though sounds nice.
