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

Ooooh, this one sounds nice @Shosh85! I love jelly serums. ๐Ÿ’– Did you experience any tingling with the AHA? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I didn't notice any tingling, though it is a mask I need to be careful when and how often I use it. ๐Ÿ˜‰
Have you used any from this line? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I hear ya about being careful when to use this one @Shosh85. I think I tried the pink one a while back; it looks very familiar.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Ya know, now that you mention it, I'm pretty sure the pink one I tried was

from you! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This one I liked too @Shosh85 hopefully you can find the other two, I'd be interested in knowing about those as well

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Glad to hear you liked it too! So you've tried the pink and green one?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I know I've tried two of them,,, now I don't remember which two,,I do know it was either pink, green or purple ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Haha! Well, at least you know you haven't tried the orange! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

What does the q tip look like, @Shosh85? Was there enough of step 1? I'm just so weirdly intrigued by the applicator. Glad it worked well!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv  There was enough to spread all over, just had to dip it back in a couple times. ๐Ÿ˜‰
I totally should've taken a picture of the Q-tip! I found a picture online that sort of gives you an idea of the size ๐Ÿ‘‡

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I dunno why I thought the serum was like preloaded into the Qtip for spreading around the face, but that's what I was envisioning, lol, @Shosh85. Thank you for the info!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Didnโ€™t realize there were yet two others form this line to try, @Shosh85! But not at all surprised you didโ˜บ๏ธ Happy this one worked out and didnโ€™t cause any irritation, itโ€™s always a bit of a gamble with the multi-step masks/ones that have acids.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Yup there's four total in this line and also two other masks from the brand I would like to try.


I have tried the pink and green ๐Ÿ‘‡

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oooh the AM PM ones speak to me, @Shosh85! Of course, that could be the packaging. Itโ€™s very sharp!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

S is for samples (which was a fabulous theme @heartsmyface did a while back), and spendy, but is it splurge worthy?

H is for House of Dior

About the drugstore / grocery store theme . . . if yours carries Dior masks, that's a mighty fancy drugstore / grocery store๐Ÿ˜‰

General Thoughts: I like foil samples - they're a great way to try out a product to see how my skin responds.  I can get about 2, maybe 3 uses from these foils. One suggestion I have about these foils in particular would be for Dior to include the instructions on the reverse side of the packet. Or, at least for the Glow Better Fresh Jelly Mask as the name of the 1-Minute Mask and sleeping mask gives you some indicator of how long you should keep those masks on. If I hadn't looked up the directions online for the jelly mask though, I'd never have guessed that you're supposed to leave it on for just 3 minutes. Now, on to the masks! ๐Ÿ˜

 Dior Hydra Life Glow Better Fresh Jelly MaskDior Capture Totale DreamSkin 1-Minute MaskDior hydra Life Jelly Sleeping Mask
What is It?A coral tinted, clean,citrus scented, gel peel-scrub treatment that gently exfoliates the skin in 3 minutes with its fruit-acid AHAs and very finely milled yet slightly gritty particles of apricot kernals.A slightly perfume-scented, AHA and BHA based, thin, but rich, gel-cream with a pearlescent pink hue that transforms into a white cream as you massage the product into your skin. A thin, super lightweight, fresh-scented, pale blue gel that almost feels like it turns into a watery consistency upon contact with the skin. It claims to smooth lines and skin texture, hydrate, plump and soften the skin, leaving it fresh faced and radiant.
Hits:The granules are very tiny and extremely gentle - but for some minimal tingling from the AHAs (and having read up on the product a little), I might not have known that this mask contained AHA's.  My skin looked . . . re-energized, smoothed, clear and brightened, and felt lightly hydrated.I was not expecting to like this one at all, but I couldn't stop touching (or wanting to touch) my face after using this mask - my skin felt so smooth and moisturized after, yes, 1 minute! Completely unexpeted. My complexion also looked more smooth, refreshed and luminous immediately after washing off the mask. This had my favorite scent of the trio of masks. Easy to apply; absorbs quickly and without tack or stickyness. My skin looked softened and hydrated the next morning. 
Misses:Though mild, this product is fragranced (both from added fragrance and naturally from the fruit extracts in it) so those sensitive to fragrance might not care for this mask, or any of the Dior masks. While this 2-in-1 exfoliator is gentle on the skin and delivers some excellent results, it's $69 for 1.7 oz.If I thought $69 for the peel scrub was rich, this 1-minute mask retails for $75, though you do get approximately 2.5 oz with this mask. The scent on this one is the strongest of the three masks; it wasn't my favorite scent but it dissipated fairly quickly following application. It wasn't an unpleasant scent, just not my favorite.The price, but it's probably to be expected from the brand. 
Best Suited For: (other than those with sensitivities to any of the ingredients)All skin types. The apricot seed kernals are super small; I expected to feel some coarseness from the scrub as a result but none. If I didn't see the little specks in the mask, I wouldn't have known this product was also a scrub / manual exfoliant.All skin types, but those with very oily skin might not need (or like) how moisturizing this leaves the skin. Those with dry skin, on the other hand, will appreciate how moisturized the skin feels, even several hours after washing off the mask.All skin types when used as a sleeping mask. As with all sleeping masks, I tried using it as a daytime moisturizer, which was okay if that's all I had on. I experienced some slight pilling when used as a daytime moisturizer. 
Would I Purchase?Here's where I'm torn. Although I'm not adverse to spending some money on beauty, and especially skincare, products, I'm also not looking to pick up a product because it's expensive. This is a very nice mask. If I didn't have unopened products to get through, I would probably purchase a full size - during the fall sale and with what I have left on my gift card (if I haven't used that all up by then, that is).I will very likely pick up this mask, though I'm not planning on doing so before the sale near the end of the year. It's $75! Going to start budgeting for it now.Probably not. I have an abundant supply of sleeping masks and the results from this one are very likely something I can get from one of the many I have in my stash.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Lol ... not my drugstore in town, but the Shoppers Drug Mart chain in Canada has Dior in their larger stores @itsfi !! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Really @missjeanie??!! Ooooh, so fancy. ๐Ÿคฃ I'm trying to think what is the most luxe brand I've seen in my local TJ Maxx / Marshalls. It's been so long since I've been in either of those stores that I'm having a hard time remembering. No Dior, but I did spy Artis brush sets last year, I think.

 

I've only been to Canada once and a trip to Shoppers Drug Mart and Winners were both on my list. I made it to SDM (a small one) but not Winners - I tell myself that I can't see everything all at once. Gotta save things for another trip. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  The larger SDM have a section of the store thatโ€™s dedicated to mid range and some higher end brands. Their website sells the higher end as well. My local has some benefit, Lancรดme, Lise Watier, Clinique, Clairins, tarte, and bourjois, with a few of the more popular Gurlain and Dior products, usually mascara etc. I get excited when I travel to a city with a bigger Shoppers! 
as far as winners, Iโ€™ve seen a random YSL lippie and a mason pearson brush, thatโ€™s probably as high end as Iโ€™ve noticed (sadly not a shade for me lol), and TJs has to be the Erno Laszlo masks and cleansing oils. 
now Iโ€™m curious to know what everyoneโ€™s best/favourite highest end finds have been??? Anyone???

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh, I forgot, yes, I've seen Mason Pearson brushes at Marshalls, near the holidays @missjeanie! Great question! Maybe cross-post to the TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Winners thread, too, for more responses?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Great reviews! @itsfi these masks look really cool thanks for sharing this info

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

These were nice @lmaster! I liked the results, which is not what my wallet likes to hear. ๐Ÿ˜‰
