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

@missjeanie  Glad to hear this Whole Foods mask was a bit better than the last one! Which other one do you have?

 

I really enjoyed that foot mask! - but I think I enjoy any kind of masks that warms up ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85  Much better this round! The other is a hydrating coconut bio cellulose, much more of what my skin needs (dang these dry spells). Iโ€™m curious to see how it goes since my skin can get clogged with coconut oils. It may not even be oil in the mask... Iโ€™ll have to check. Iโ€™m looking forward to trying it next now that I know I like the biocellulose more!

More S and H from this week:

 

S for G9 Skin Strawberry Milk Bomb Mask

I wanted to like this. It's got the slightly thicker woven cotton sheet that I love because it's so soft against the skin. There was plenty of serum soaking the sheet. But. That scent! Oof. I don't know that I can even place it. Maybe there was a hint of chemical strawberry but overall it was just overpowering and unpleasant. I ended up only having the sheet on for about 5 minutes because of that, so no real results to speak of. I'll stick with Apieu for fruity milk masks in the future. 

 

And for H the Biobelle #HappyHour mask  

 

IMG_20200821_144131.jpg

This is one of the older versions of Biobelle which I think a lot of us have expressed a preference for over the newer versions. The sheet is comfortable with plenty of serum, a good fit, and has great adherence. I had this one on for quite a while since it was so well saturated. Removal left just a bit of tack and had my skin feeling hydrated and plump. I think this is my last one of the Happy Hour version and only one of a couple of the older versions left in my stash, so that makes me sad. The newer ones are ok, but not nearly as nice as these were. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork sorry to hear about the scent! I wish I could of tried an older version ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork I almost tried that g9 but went with another now, I'm kinda scared๐Ÿ˜• but I will miss happy hour mask!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Maybe the G9 scent will be less noticeable for you, @sonnydee - I hope you like it more than I did!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork Love the name!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Love the gif @quspork !

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Sometimes a gif just really sums it all up, @missjeanie๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork  I tried the G9 mask too and wasn't a fan of it either - I agree, the scent was pretty horrible!

I have the same opinion as you about the BioBELLE masks - the old/original ones were much better! I'm super sad they're being discontinued!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Glad it's not just me with the G9, @Shosh85!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hahaha, love the gif @quspork! Sorry the strawberry milk mask was a miss. It seems like it's trying to be a dupe or knockoff of the A'Pieu mask. Love the older version of those Biobelle masks.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

The good thing about masks that are just total misses is that I know what I can cross off my future purchase list at least, @itsfi.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

An excellent outlook on it @quspork! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ For the rest of us, itโ€™s one less mask to be tempted by. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Whole Foods - one of my most favorite grocery store brands ๐Ÿ™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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 I really don't think I've ever seen this one,,, kinda sad it doesn't smell like roses 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  I may have smelled rose in the mix, but was really more of a general floral scent.
