Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks💗 Post as frequently or infrequently as you would like, with or without following the challenge. We love hearing about every masking experience, and suggestions are always welcome. 

 

This Week’s Theme: “Favorite Mask in Your Regular Routine” - the lovely @itsfi would like to know - which mask do you buy in bulk, to always have on hand? 

Letter of the Week:  S

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

Sorry about the huge granules. That must be so scary worrying about damaging your skin. Has it been okay since you used the mask or have you noticed anything wrong @eshoe?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

My skin has been ok, @ShortErica - but I’m looking into the long term - a month from now, are my cheeks going to be cracking? I’ve realized there is a wide open market for solid hydrating masks. Detox/purifying/exfoliating ones are plentiful, and maybe that’s just where the market is🤷🏻‍♀️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe The only one I can think of is the Origins Mini Drink Up™ Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask with Avocado & Swiss Glacier Water 1 oz/ 3... because @faeriegirl sent it to me in unicorn mail! I need to try it. I tend to always focus on sheet masks but loved incorporating a weekly wash off pore mask on Mondays so I don't know why I always hesitate. Have you tried it?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I use that one @ShortErica @and love it. Very similar to the Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask with Vitamin C 2 oz/ 59 mL actually! In scent and consistency, the only difference in my experience is the hue and form of application (Origins tube vs YTTP jar).

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  I love that melon mask- it is so refreshing! The other "flavors" from the line are just as good! 😋

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I have a couple more to try out, @Shosh85 , and I am expecting good things👍🏼😊

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That's too bad about the harsh granules in the Dutch Dirt mask, @eshoe but at least the melon mask could help make up for the earlier disappointment!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

100% agreed, @quspork ! Always a bright to things, I think that is the key☺️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe Does Dutch Dirt contain pumice? That stuff can feel very abrasive. But you got to follow up with a lovely melon mask, hooray! 🍈

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I should pay closer attention to ingredients, shouldn’t I @WinglessOne 🤦🏻‍♀️😂? Let’s see here...oh look-you called it! And AD is second in the list. I think I remember you mentioning the bentonite before, as a positive. This might be a great future elbow scrub. The reviews are all amazing, but I have some sense of relief knowing it was my own curiosity that drove me to it. My skin did appear somewhat brightened, but I think, at what cost?

Mediheal Vita Lightbeam Essential Mask Ex

This is a super thin cotton sheet mask that was saturated with plenty of serum and had a perfumy kind of scent - it's not the strongest scented mask I've used but it was obnoxious enough to give me a slight headache. The fit was ok – too long at the chin and just a little too wide at the temples. It adhered well and was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. There was a bit of tackiness after removing but absorbed in 10 minutes. My face looked brighter, felt hydrated, soft and smooth and had a nice glow.

I really loved the results from this mask but because of the scent I wouldn't repurchase.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Boo @Shosh85! I don't recall it having a strong scent but I swear these masks change on me. That's why I always love having a 2nd or 3rd look to see if my feelings match up. At least the results were good. Sorry about your headache. I'm sure the next mask you will use has to be better.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  It's funny you mention that, because for some reason I don't remember it being that strong the last time I used it - of course that was back when I wasn't saving my notes, so my memory could be off. 🤔 Great results though, so at least it wasn't all bad! 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Uhhhhh @Shosh85 I can't stand a strong perfume scent on a sheet mask 😩 so sorry

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  I can tolerate a strong fruity scent, more than a strong floral or perfumy scent! Im happy the results were great though! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Same here!! @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh no! That's a shame about the scent, @Shosh85. I hope your headache didn't last too long.
