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

Well I saw your photo and thought, "Oooooh - this is going to be good!" And then your caption, and my heart sank. First, this is the first I've heard of a two-part cotton mask, I believe. That seems like it might not work too well, and....sounds like nope, it didn't (also, those letters) ๐Ÿ˜•

 

I just started using the Essence, and thanks to your review, I will not bother with the mask. What a disappointment. Also, I just ordered some color-coding dots to better organizing my rotation, and thought of you ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe The 2-part mask would've worked much better had the bottom part not had that dang attached neck piece. Once I cut that off, I had a 3-part mask and began questioning my life choices after the 4th time that 3rd (neck) part tried to escape. 

 

I hope the Time Revolution essence works out for you! And I'd love to see your color coded rotation solution! That sounds like a great way to organize! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I would *think* that a mask with an added neck part would benefit from the extra โ€˜attachmentโ€™ of the top part, @WinglessOne. It just seems like gravity would work at pulling the bottom half down on its own, if that makes any sense. The natural contour of the face would also help prevent slippage, you know? 

I think designating a color for the type of mask/product I use will help me see at a glance where I need to amend or modify my routine. @haleyvvvv has a daily schedule that besides you, also inspired me to set up a more consistent routine. Right now itโ€™s very loosely Sun/Mon = detox mask, and thatโ€™s it. I feel like I could be doing more or at least a better job with pinpointing what my skin needs by now, and hope ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผthis will help!

 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This is very kind, @eshoe!! It's all about what your skin needs, and mine likes a routine; and also to not think too hard about which mask for which day/need. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It's a shame this one was underwhelming, @WinglessOne

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork Eh, at least it saves me $7-10 USD on another single of this mask. ๐Ÿ‘ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Absolutely, @WinglessOne - always better to spend that money on something better performing!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne That's disappointing - I feel like I have had weirdly high expectations when I've seen this mask floating around as well. It's hard with a sheet mask - you want instant results - not something you have to use for weeks to see 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Kim888 Right? If I wanted a serious longterm results commitment with a mask serum, I'd skip the mask part and just buy the bottled serum. ๐Ÿ˜„ 

hahahha๐Ÿ˜‚ I thought the same thing about this week's lett...

hahahha๐Ÿ˜‚ I thought the same thing about this week's letters F and U and also my mask last night. this is a good week to use your one-offs bin๐Ÿ˜‰@WinglessOne

Re: hahahha๐Ÿ˜‚ I thought the same thing about this week's lett...

@sonnydee Hopefully I'll find a Fabulous Underrated mask in my one-offs for this week's theme, instead of another F U mask. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: hahahha๐Ÿ˜‚ I thought the same thing about this week's lett...

Hopefully ๐Ÿคž@WinglessOne

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  It's too bad this one was unimpressive! I have a couple "Time Revolution" masks to try sometime, but now I kinda feel a little less excited about getting to them. Glad you only had the one! I still have packs of 10 that I wish I had never bought! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 Aw, maybe you'll have better luck with your Time Revolution masks than I did with this one! I remember seeing a Time Revolution Night Somethingorother variety somewhere, but I don't have that one. Anyway, here's hoping Time Revolution works better for you than it did for me! 

 

Unusable 5- or 10-packs are the danger (for me) of buying at TJM/Marshalls. I've given away so many masks from boxes I bought in-store. When I find someone who likes a mask that didn't work for me, that person usually gets any of that mask I have left. ๐Ÿ˜„ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  Yup, I have the Night Repair Probio Ampoule Mask and the Artemisia Jelly Mask. The Night Repair one is what I'm most excited to try - I thought "probio" sounded good (even though I have no idea what the skincare benefits are, haha!.... I guess it's time to Google ๐Ÿ˜‰) Plus the packaging looked pretty, and that always lures me in ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne Great review of mask.  I totally understand what you mean regarding high expectations of products or food only to be let down after trying it.  Well at least you were able to identify a few benefits of the mask.  Your product reviews are fabulous! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Aw, thanks @tjffc ! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh. Itโ€™s too bad this one didnโ€™t meet your expectations @WinglessOne. ๐Ÿ˜ž 79-80 points isnโ€™t terrible but itโ€™s certainly a disappointment when your expecting something more in the mid-80 to 90s range. Good for you then that you only had one of these, and not a box of 10!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi I really did think this mask would be at least an 88, even with those 2 yucky ingredients. Oh well! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This pops up in just about every Ulta gwp bag so I wanted to try it & fit the theme for the week

 

Fit? Its a mud mask, its gray, dries & gets tight but you only notice if you really open your mouth wide (like a yawn) but i also left this on longer. I left it on for 6 min instead of 2

 

 

Smell?faint, like a herbal mud. Not bad & I had to really try to be able to sniff the scent

 

Consistency? Creamy clay but only spreads ok. It asks for a generous layer & i used the entire sample..not sure if a brush or applicator will make it easier 

 

Ease of use?ok after I got it all on. The generous layer is probably to help with the removal & i guess i wasn't generous enough๐Ÿคท. I used a cloth & still had to almost scrub to get this mask off. The good thing is it doesnt strip your skin..

 

Would I  purchase/try again?....my skin doesnt feel detoxified or fresh, if anything it felt like it left a bit of a residue. Not deeply clean like it promises. But it pops up on the reg so I can always try again leaving it on for 2 min...๐Ÿ˜’ ( smiley face is rolling its eyes. I don't like masking for such a short amount of time) i think you can get the same effect by just washing your face๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ
