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.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  Oooh, love a watermelon duel! ๐Ÿ‰ I had no idea I'd given you so many watermelon masks, but it makes sense because I love watermelon and these are some of my favorites! 

It is super annoying how some masks have their star ingredient(s) so far down in the list - it does seem that all of BioBelle's new masks are like that.
Glad they all turned out great!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I was like, hey it's @Shosh85, and Shosh and Shosh again - thank you again! Yes, bioBelle seemed like it was effective despite having those ingredients at the bottom but yeah, a bit disappointing. The other thing I loved was that each of these masks had good size philtrum areas - nothing skimpy!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This weekโ€™s 3-step mask from Missha, thanks to the recent motm ๐Ÿ“ฆ

My skin has been so disagreeable this week. Iโ€™ve had a few blemishes along my jawbone and dots havenโ€™t been helping, so I was hoping some exfoliating would help. This was the second (or third?) time Iโ€™ve tried the Youth To The People Yerba Mate Resurfacing + Exfoliating Energy Facial with Enzymes + Niacinamide 2...., and I still donโ€™t have any strong feelings about it one way or another. Lots of tiny granules, so I was extra careful when rinsing off.

This Missha 3-Step Nutrition Mask starts with Essence, which Iโ€™ve come to appreciate more as Iโ€™ve made it part of my skincare routine. It seemed superfluous at first, but thatโ€™s how I felt about serum a few years ago, too๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ I think as a first step, itโ€™s a great choice. This essence felt more like a rich serum, with a clean laundry-type scent. Step two, the mask, was a thicker, soft and stretchy fabric that felt lovely but fell away from my face to the point that I removed it after about 15 minutes of struggling. My skin felt quite soft and hydrated. Since step three was the hydrating cream, I went through my final steps and then applied it last. It was pleasant enough, no irritation so that was a plus. Itโ€™s not a mask I would repurchase, but I loved having the opportunity to try it, so a very big thank you and hug to the person who included it in the box, it was greatly appreciated!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe that's what I love about motm, getting to try new ones out ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Me too, @lmaster. Itโ€™s all about the adventure, doesnโ€™t matter if they are good or badโ˜บ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Too bad you donโ€™t have thoughts on the YTTP Iโ€™ve been debating it for a bit. I might have to see if I have a sample. I totally agree with you about serums. A few years ago I didnโ€™t use them but now I canโ€™t get enough!!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@atherI guess as much as I love physical exfoliatants, I realize they are not a good match for my normal/dry skin. I love them, but tend to overuse them as a result. The granules in this one are small, but noticeably rough. If your skin can handle it, this might be a brilliant fit for you. Itโ€™s fun to use and I love the brand overall; the Youth To The People Superfood Air-Whip Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid 2 oz/ 60 mL is my all-time favorite daytime moisturizer.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  In the summer I might be able to get away with a physical exfoliate but in the winter I think I am to dry!! I will definitely check that moisturizer out!! Thank you!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I love that MOtM allows us to try something we might not want to purchase ourselves. This sounds nice @eshoe. Hope your face calms down. I've been having some blemish issues too. Ugh!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes @ShortErica Iโ€™ve had fun trying new masks. They havenโ€™t always panned out, but isnโ€™t that how it works, at least in part? Itโ€™s the most fun trying them, if they arenโ€™t a god fit, then I just know what I donโ€™t like/need ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  All three steps on this one sound pretty decent! I'm happy MOTM gave you a chance to try it out! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

They were good, @Shosh85! Iโ€™ve been using the Missha Time Revolution and along with the CosRx, they have helped me see what a difference an essence can make in plumping the skin. 3 step masks used to seem like a lot of work, but I kinda donโ€™t mind them anymore๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Glad you're enjoying the CosRX! I'm lovin' the stringy-sliminess of the snail products! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Me too, @Shosh85. Itโ€™s kind of a game, if I can apply it to both cheeks without a thread leaving its mark across my face๐Ÿ˜ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

My favorite multi-step mask: Ole's Power Bright 

 

IMG_20200827_143608.jpg

This is one I usually save for special occasions but I figure making it to the end of August in the year 2020 is reason enough to celebrate these days! I know a lot of us have used and love this 3-step system so I won't spend too much time on it, but it's still hands down one my favorite masks for bright, baby soft skin. Perfect before a night out or a special event. It's a shame OH seems to have stopped selling it here and through their site, but luckily you can still find the set at Marshall's and TJMaxx fairly often - and thanks to that I have plenty in the stash! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Absolutely, @quspork this is a major love!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It's such a good mask, @lmaster!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork  Tooo bad they stopped selling it ๐Ÿค”

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It's a sad thing indeed, @ather. It really is one of my favorites of all time, so it's such a shame to see it discontinued. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I just posted that I don't have any 3 step masks and I do have this one but haven't tried it yet. I picked mine up at Marshalls or TJ Maxx too. Glad to hear more love for this one @quspork! Do you get multiple uses out of it? I feel like that was something I remember reading.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I think several people here do divide up the cups for a couple of uses, but honestly I just slather everything on for a single use per pack, @ShortErica. I hope you enjoy it when you try it!
