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. 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 multimask almost everyday, so just thought I'd share my normal Wednesday routine.

 

I start with an intense exfoliation or peel. Right now I'm using Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask 5 oz/ 148 mL right now. 

Spoiler
Whenever I sniff this in the jar, I'm like, "Yay, pumpkin pie." But when its on the face its a little too sickeningly sweet. It easily applies, especially with a brush.
I like that it isn't as intense as other sort of peel masks, I can leave on closer to the 7 min max recommended wear time. It only stings a little bit when I put it on (and usually only around the nostrils) and this goes away quickly.
It definitely helps smooth my skin, but isn't my favorite of these types of masks. Would use again if I got in a set though.

I follow up with a hydrating mask. I'm close to empty on the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask 5 oz/ 150 mL 

Spoiler
I am SO glad to be close to empty on this. It is not a good mask, IMO. First of all, it stings too (especially around the nostrils). It is almost greasy. It does hydrate a bit, but not as much as I'd like. One more use and it is done!

After the rest of my skincare routine, I end the night with a sleeping mask and lip mask. Right now I'm using the Origins Mini Drink Upโ„ข Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask with Avocado & Swiss Glacier Water 1 oz/ 3... and the old formula bite beauty lip mask.

Spoiler
This is one of my favourite sleeping masks. It smells so lovely and tropical. I like how it is creamy but liteweight, so on my normal to dry skin, it sinks in a little but isn't too greasy. Its great for the warmer months but isn't quite enough for the winter.

We all know the old school agave lip mask is amazing. I haven't had a chance to get the reformulation.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv I love that ptr detox mask ๐Ÿ’—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I can see why its a lot of people's fave, @lmaster!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv  Looks like a nice routine! ๐Ÿ‘ The Origins and PTR Pumpkin masks are a couple of my favorites! The Origins wasn't quite enough for me during the colder months either, which is why I use the Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask with Vitamin C 2 oz/ 59 mL more in the winter.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you, @Shosh85!! I'm more of a Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask 2.25 oz/ 64 g gal myself in the winter. I tried a DS of the YTTP and wanted it to do more for my skin, unfortunately. I do have another DS, so I'll give it one more try in the next months.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv  The pumpkin PTR is too sweet smelling for me too.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Right?! I wish just a bit less scent, and it would ideal smelling. @emaisgr8 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oooh, the PTR pumpkin mask is a fave of mine ๐Ÿฅฐ and I so agree @haleyvvvv, that Origins mask is a sensory delight! โ™ฅ๏ธ

 

Youโ€™re a trooper for working your way through that PTR cucumber mask. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ I know itโ€™s well liked by some. I could never get it to work for me as a face mask, and have usually passed it along or found ways to repurpose it. Kudos to you for being close to finish it up. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ ๐ŸŽ‰ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Lol, one more week and its done. I just can't not use products, it feels wasteful. Especially when it isnt causing any negative side effects. I wish I had thought to repurpose it.  @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

One more weejk @haleyvvvv? Yay!! For face masks that donโ€™t irritate my skin but just donโ€™t do anything for me as a face mask, I may set them aside for use during a different time of the year since my skin has different needs during the cooler and warmer months. If that doesnโ€™t work or Iโ€™m just not up for holding onto the product for that long, I will try to repurpose them a few ways - 

 

* exfoliating wash off masks - either on my elbows or soles of feet. Or, sometimes, I may set them aside until winter time. There are a few times when itโ€™s cold out that I will have some dryness along my hairline and Iโ€™ll use it there to slough away any dry patches.

 

* non-exfoliating wash off masks - Iโ€™ll slather some on the soles of my feet and pop on some socks for a foot mask of sorts. Same goes for the hands. If I can find my gloves for it, a sock works too but it limits what I can do.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Great ideas, thank you, @itsfi!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

You're using some masks that I love @haleyvvvv !  The PTR Pumpkin is one I really enjoy, I must have tough skin though, I tend to leave mine on for at least 15 minutes before enjoying the scrub action.  I do have the PTR Cucmber, but found it to be just meh, nothing bad, but nothing great either.  And the Origins Avocado and Swiss glacier water one reminds me of powdered iced tea every time I put it on.  It's my favourite product from Origins! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I love the Origins mask, it is definitely one of my favorite of theirs, glad to see others enjoy it. I want to try the Origins Drink Upโ„ข 10 Minute Hydrating Mask with Apricot & Swiss Glacier Water 2.5 oz/ 75 mL after my exfoliator but I have SO many masks. @missjeanie 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I hear you on so many masks @haleyvvvv ! Iโ€™ve had that one on my list to try out sometime as well!

@missjeanie I MADE my hubs sniff. he was hesitant until I told him I would bathe in it. he agreed that it smelled wonderful. I used the extra in the pouch on my chest, shoulders & legs๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™
