Mask of the Week Misc. Info & Previous Year's Links:


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

I feel like I keep seeing some mid and low level grades - you're due for an awesome one @haleyvvvv!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Haha, @ShortErica, I'm just so picky with sheet masks, and I pulled out a bunch the past few weeks (gotta get through that stash...also, they easy to wear when tired). I'm sure the next one will be a winner.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

So true about getting through your stash @haleyvvvv!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

 that's so disappointing!! @haleyvvvv  for the price tag,,I would expect better

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Same, @lmaster, but at least I got them in a sub box and didn't buy them outright. If I did, I probably would've scored even lower.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv  Sorry these were both subpar. Clarins has a patent for harungana madagascariensis extract as an anti-aging skincare ingredient. I haven't read through it, but now I'm curious about any testing they did. I have a different 111 Skin mask and you just reminded me I haven't used it yet. (Note to self!) 


Also, assuming your PhD graduation didn't happen because of covid: congratulations! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The B+ for the 111skin is actually pretty good, @WinglessOne, I just took price into account and its not worth the sticker price.


Yes, it was canceled for covid reasons, thank you!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge



Thought a gold foil mask was pretty on theme for GLAM.




Pooooooor. Surprisingly short forehead. Waaay to long in the chin. Didn't adhere well and kept shifting as I laid down. Blah. Was a bit itchy.


Not really present. Watery and thin, not a ton on the mask or in packet.


Hydrating. Which is mild at best. I put on my Kate Somerville Retinol Kate Somerville +Retinol Vita C Power Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL before, and my skin felt extra smooth after, so I feel like the foil but worked well to really seal in that serum.


Nothing standout. A lot of perfume mid way through which was definitely obvious, unfortunately.

Sorry for the terrible photo, taking a picture of this packaging was hard.

Wear Time:

15 minutes, I left on closer to 20-25. It was drying a bit toward the edges, but I wrung some serum onto my neck and arms.

Overall Grade:

C-/D. It wasn't a good mask at all.



Bonus mask: Oh, isn't that cute, it's a polar bear (Ours!! ๐Ÿป๐Ÿงธ๐Ÿป๐Ÿงธ, en franรงais)


Thats it. Its a cute mask that doesn't irritate. I've used a few varieties of these Masque Bar masks, and aside from wanting to try a few for cuteness, I think these are great for like a slumber party for the like my nerves *neices* or something (f-ing autocorrect).

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv  I wasn't a big fan of the Sephora mask either, but I haven't really liked any of the masks from this line. Glad the cute bear could make up for it! I agree, these masks are definitely perfect for parties or party favors! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, @Shosh85, both of these were a bit disappointing, but thats okay, they didn't outright cause any negative side effects. I tried the silver SC mask too and it also wasn't good.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Seems like no gold stars for the Golden mask. Sorry it was so bad @haleyvvvv. You make a cute bear and I'm sure your nieces would be too!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you, @ShortErica!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv Awe cuteness!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you, @Samtian!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, those SC foils just aren't great, unfortunately, @haleyvvvv. My experience with them was very similar to yours. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Seems like a pretty common reaction, unfortunately, @quspork. I hope they'll think about a reformulation going forward. I also tried the silver one and it wasn't good.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv I have to agree with you on the SC foil masks, they are pretty, but pretty mediocre unfortunately,, super cute animal mask!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, it was disappointing, @lmaster. I think id tried the silver one too and it was similarly bad. Maybe they'll reformat a "clean" version that works better. Thank you!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Agree @haleyvvvv, the Masque Bar Animalz masks have a fun quotient to them based on their design. You make an adorable polar bear! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you, @itsfi!! Yes, they are just too darned cute., its honestly a bit of a shame that they don't work better.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

L is for Lift Up Pack.   These V Lifting masks are soooo good!  A downfall is they take an hour or two of wear.  This one by Todayโ€™s Cosme is a sticker type mask that wraps around the ears.  My face is slightly too wide for this or itโ€™s meant to be tight.  Iโ€™m unsure which, but it tugs and folds my ears downward which is mildly uncomfortable so every once in a while Iโ€™ll pull it back to give my ears some relief.  The effects are amazing!  My jawline is becoming more lax and this mask really defines it for about three hours or so while delivering wonderful hydration.  (Iโ€™m pretty sure any compression mask will deliver the same results but Iโ€™ve ordered a few brands to compare for science:)
