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

Yeah there are many nights I just donโ€™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! ๐Ÿ’ก

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I will check, @ShortErica, but I donโ€™t think so. I would like to see it on the schedule, though-would be helpful!

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.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This really is a pretty mask, @Shosh85. Prettiest isnโ€™t always best, but at least it wasnโ€™t the worst๐Ÿ˜‰!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  It wasn't anywhere near the worst, Im just not a big fan of foil material in general. I'm not sure I've tried a foil mask that didn't have some kind of adherence issue - gotta have that second skin feel ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes-you got the mail on the head @Shosh85! These definitely are not second skin๐Ÿ˜† I have one from Bliss I just ordered and Iโ€™m curious how it will compare. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ Itโ€™s two part, at least that helps somewhat!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85, the Whole Foods masks are good and reasonably priced. I agree that biocellulose and cupra masks are preferred over foils. I wonder if they will bring out new masks or even seasonal ones at some point.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Yeah, i just love the adherence and comfortability of biocellulose - it's probably my most favorite mask material.

Last night, I went to "rest my eyes" for a short period of time and ended up falling asleep for a couple of hours. Ha! This happens all the time; I really should know better. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyhow, I thought it would be a good idea to do hand mask and foot mask while my eyes were resting - I mean, the Aveeno Repairing Cica Hand Mask and the Aveeno Repairing Cica Foot Mask call for 10 minutes, which I planned to wear for up to 30, because wouldn't that make for an optimal amount of time to rest one's eyes?! While my brain thought 30 minutes might be good, my body felt that a couple of hours would be better. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ When I woke up, I felt pretty refreshed and more to the point for this thread, my hands and feet felt so soft and nourished.  The soles of my feet looked softer and felt especially moisturized and smooth. Wow! These drugstore treats are a treasure and, at $2.99 per mask, they're a bargain, too (well, as far as masks of these kind go)! Both of these Aveeno masks are definite repurchases for me. Hands (and feet) down, winners!!  Psst..@ather, if you can find these in your neck of the woods, the foot mask is amazing!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi I did the same thing this morning.  My boss who had my keys texted to say he'd be a half hour late to work... I laid down just to rest my eyes after getting ready... I was later than him lol.  Glad to hear you got some rest and multi tasked with soft hands and feet!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@missjeanie, resting oneโ€™s eyes sure takes longer than I plan. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Or maybe weโ€™re not so good at knowing how much rest we need. Iโ€™m glad you were able to sleep in a little. ๐Ÿ’ค ๐Ÿ› Iโ€™m always reminded how much I love foot masks after I use one. Need to get back to a routine with โ€˜em.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi You inspired a foot mask for me tonight.  I figured if I fell asleep in a moisturizing one it would be okay!
