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, fit, adherence, mask type (hydrating, brightening, exfoliating, detox, sleeping, etc.) as well as your overall experience.

Most importantly: Would you repurchase it? 


Second most important: Have fun and merry masking!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi @quspork Im pretty sure you can look up the batch code/lot number on checkcosmetic(dot)com. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I did have that thought about the age of the mask, @itsfi since these have been discontinued now. I'll be interested to see your thoughts whenever you reach for the SC foil in your collection. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork, I’m far enough into the remainder of my stash that I can move those masks up the queue - it’s a sign (yet another one) that I  have too many sheet masks if there’s a queue... πŸ˜‚ Will let you know how it turns out. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh bummer @quspork. At least through all the pain, you got good results.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

So true, @ShortErica. It's nice that there was at least some redeeming factor for it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork  As I recall, I've felt similarly about the foil ones. I think it was the rose gold one I tried and I had a lot of fit issues.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork I have the same feelings about these particular masks

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Sorry about the scent, @quspork. Makes me want to compile a list of best unscented masks! I could do without added fragrance, too.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It's a shame that a bad scent can completely change how you feel about a mask, @eshoe. Although by the same token, there are some masks that I seek out because of the scent. I do think it'd be interesting to include an unscented mask week next year to see what some people's favorites are. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Ok @quspork, definitely adding it to the schedule! I think I should even wiggle it in this year, for fun @ShortErica @Shosh85 @missjeanie πŸ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I really love this idea... I find I have a love hate relationship with fragrance.  I know I should want fragrance free... but if it'll be a fragrance I enjoy... I want it lol.  @eshoe  Hopefully seeing a bunch of fragrance free masks will help with finding awesome ones I can add to my list!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yeah there are many nights I just don’t want a scent, @missjeanie. Some nights I am looking for it, but it would be helpful to have a list of unscented skin treats!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Do we have an no fragrance/unscented theme week for 2021 @eshoe? That would be a nice way to see what masks don't have fragrance.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica great idea!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica Oooh that's a great idea for a theme! πŸ’‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I will check, @ShortErica, but I don’t think so. I would like to see it on the schedule, though-would be helpful!

Whole Foods - one of my most favorite grocery store brands πŸ™Œ

Whole Foods Purifying Rose Air Wrapping Mask

This is two piece foil mask, which has a silver colored foil on the outside and cotton on the inside touching your skin. It fit great - just a tiny bit too wide at the temples and a smidge too short at the forehead. It was saturated with plenty of serum and had a light floral scent. As with most foil masks I've tried, the adherence wasn't the greatest, but it was still pretty comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. There was a little tackiness after removing, but it absorbed in about 10 minutes. My face looked brighter and less dull and my skin felt soft and smooth and comfortably hydrated.

This was a nice mask and one I'd use again, but probably wouldn't repurchase - it didn't have the greatest scent and foil masks in general just aren't my favorite because of the adherence issues. I think I'll stick to repurchasing the biocellulose and cotton cupra masks. πŸ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 Great feedback on this brand.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@tjffc  I think I've tried every mask from the brand, and really they were all pretty great - their biocellulose masks are my favorite. I'm just not a big fan of foil masks.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85  I wonder if that's a new-ish one. I don't think I've seen it before. Foil masks aren't my favorite, either.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@PrettyPaint  I think foil masks are fun, but in general, they just don't seem to adhere well. This was a decent mask, it's just my least favorite material.
