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!

2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Out of my one-off bin as @WinglessOne calls it. i think i picked this up during 1 of the MOTM... Fit? ...the eyes are hearts. That was cute. And thats where the pros ended...๐Ÿ™Š the mask was too slender, it only covered about half of my temple area. had extra on the forehead & sooooo much on the chin. Like.a.beard. I am too lazy to cut but almost did with this mask- I had high hopes for it. Its a black mask, on the thicker side Smell?not bad, but what I would think kale& charcoal would smell like Consistency? the mask was nicely saturated but started acting out almost immediately. i had to fight with it to get 15 min out of it. it wanted to lift off of my cheeks but it didn't feel dry. The part above the lips wanted to be on my lips. I usually could just push it up & out of the way but not with this mask ๐Ÿคท the serum is clear & pretty thin but i didn't have any drippey mess. My skin did soak in the serum with ease & not much tack..Really no difference in my blemishes Ease of use?a struggle Would I  purchase/try again?I wouldn't buy this mask. There are so many better alternatives at this price point & cheaper even. If I got it for free, maybe with a mask holder- which is also a struggle But not one i would seek out but avoid. ๐Ÿ’š for the hearts. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  I haven't tried any of these because of all the negative reviews I've heard. This one definitely sounds like more trouble than it's worth. Sorry to hear it was such a let down! ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee what a bummer!! Thank you... Next next ๐ŸŽถ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hmmmm @sonnydee๐Ÿค” this mask seems really high maintenance. ๐Ÿ˜† Sounds like a lot of work to make it (kinda) work. Agree that there are alternatives at comparable prices. Thanks for taking one for the team and for letting us know! On to the next mask! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I have a handful of the anti-pollution masks from this brand and they are pretty non descript, @sonnydee . 1000% agree with your end results and everything elseโ˜บ๏ธ

@eshoe @WinglessOne I was really surprised about how much...

@eshoe @WinglessOne I was really surprised about how much a pain this mask was. I wish there was more serum for me too add a blank mask too & try again but no such luck. oh well, ๐Ÿคท can't all be winners

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee Wow, this mask sounds like more trouble than it's worth. Gotta love those sheet masks that try to fly or slide off your face... Sorry it didn't work out for you! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

For the next few weeks I plan to do Holika Holika masks because I think they fall into the Blind Pick (which one of them will I use), Sheet Mask Focus and letter H. A big thanks to @Shosh85 and @missjeanie for helping me get so many varieties!!! If anyone wants to buddy up and compare with me I'd love to have motivation of which to use next. So far I've done lemon and acai berry.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  Yay! I was just wondering when you were gonna do a Holika Holika showdown! I've only tried 3, (lemon, strawberry & rose) and I think Lemon is my favorite so far! I'm pretty sure the Pearl is up next in the schedule for me.... I'll definitely have to compare notes when you've gone through them all! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

And darn! I still have the Mugwort one with your name on it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh yay! Looking forward to your thoughts too @Shosh85. And no worries, there will likely be a smaller but still quite a bit of variety Holika Holika part 2 showdown in the future. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Wow!! That looks so cool @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thanks @lmaster! It will be nice to see which ones stand out

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I can't wait to hear your thoughts @ShortErica . I always love your comparison posts.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thanks @emaisgr8! That's encouragement to take good notes. So far lemon > acai berry for me.

U is for Ultru

Ultru I'm Sorry For My Skin pH5.5 Brightening Jelly Mask

This is a thin cotton sheet mask that was LOADED with super thick and slimy jelly serum. There was enough extra serum left in the pouch for my neck, chest, arms and legs. It had a mild citrus scent - lemon and orange is what stood out the most to me - and it wasn't as noticeable when the mask was on. The fit was good- just a smidge too wide by the temples and little too long at the chin. It adhered well and was comfortable to wear the 45 minutes I had it on. When I removed it my face felt great and so refreshed. There was some light tackiness that literally lasted an hour and a half! I actually don't mind tack at all and wouldn't even notice it unless I touched my face, which something I try not to do in general- but I do touch it after I mask (with clean hands) for the sake of detailed notes. ๐Ÿ˜‚My skin looked slightly brighter, and had a nice glow and the moisture and hydration from it was long lasting!

I loved this one and would absolutely repurchase, especially if spotted at TJ Maxx again!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 @Oooh this looks interesting! I love ph oriented masks - this sounds great! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Kim888 It really was great! This is only the second pH mask I've used, but I've loved them both! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Havenโ€™t heard of a bad pH5.5 mask yet, @Shosh85! This sounds especially inviting, given the extra serum๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  I loved the thick jellly serum! The only other pH5 mask I tried was the Heimish one and loved that one, so, so far so good! Would definitely love to try out more pH5.5 masks!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

How would you compare it to the Brightening Yadah Jelly @Shosh85? Do you repurchase both at TJ Maxx or prefer one or the other?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  It would be easier to compare them if I did them closer together, but from what I remember and according to my notes, it looks like I like this Ultru one better -  it has thicker jelly serum, a wee bit better scent and was better at moisturizing and hydrating. So, I actually probably wouldn't repurchase the Yadah, now that I've discovered this one!
