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

@eshoe  Well don't be too amazed, haha! I just save all my notes/reviews and my phone stores them alphabetically, so they're super easy to find and count ๐Ÿ˜‰

And thanks for the heads up on the Chamomile mask! - I'll be sure to log in first ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Youโ€™re welcome @Shosh85! Iโ€™m going to go back in and pick it up, Iโ€™ve really enjoyed those masks!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Both these masks sound great!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Masks that take little effort to love are good, @ather ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Some more BIC-inspired goodness:

 

The Purlisse Watermelon Energizing Sheet Mask

IMG_20200923_123746.jpg

This was a swap from the Masks on the Move box and I believe @lmaster has mentioned liking this one (my memory can be terrible tho, so apologies if I'm thinking of the wrong masker!!). This was such a lovely "end to summer" mask. It was a more opaque mask with clear serum that fit well and adherence wasn't an issue. And it had a very light, fresh watermelon scent. It left my skin looking well-hydrated and I didn't notice too much in the way of tack after removal. I would happily use this one again!

 

And then, the Merbliss Wedding Dress Aloe Honey Mask

IMG_20200923_123736.jpg

I had added a pack of these to an order from roseroseshop after reading @itsfi 's review a while back and I'm so glad I did! (And then later found another pack at Marshall's that had to be grabbed up...) This mask features two of my favorite skincare ingredients- honey and aloe, such a great combo. It's a microfiber sheet that just cocoons my skin without moving around or becoming unstuck. There's a delicious light honey scent that isn't overwhelming, but adds a nice little something to the masking experience. And after removal? I'm left with hydrated, soothed, less red skin that is soft and bouncy. In summary? YES. Thank you to @eshoe for first introducing me to Merbliss as a brand a while back with, I think it was, the Nurse Healing Mask, and also thank you to @itsfi for recommending this version! I will happily be using what's in the current stash and plan to repurchase when necessary. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I do love that purlisse mask @quspork I was very close to using it yesterday ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork I love watermelon products. They're so soothing and hydrating. Plus they smell so good.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Watermelon can be a really nice addition, @rosegoldlovely! I've also loved the SC after-sun watermelon masks. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Hooray, 2 for 2! I like that watermelon mask a lot, too. And I just received a box of that Merbliss mask, so I'll probably use one this weekend. It'll be my honey product for the week. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I hope the Merbliss works out nicely for you, @WinglessOne!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  So glad both are working great!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Both were really nice masks, @ather-- it's great to have a few winners in the rotation!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ahhh I was unaware the Wedding Dress is available in different versions, @quspork! Now I will have to search this one out๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, there a couple different ones, and the honey/aloe is such a nice one, @eshoe!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That aloe & honey! They make eye gels in the same formula too @quspork thanks @@itsfi

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That's good to know about the eye gels, @sonnydee!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  I loved the Merbliss Nurse Healing mask, so I'm happy to hear the Aloe & Honey is getting such great reviews! Aloe and Honey definitely seem like a great combo! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Glad you enjoyed the Purlisse mask! I think it might be my most favorite watermelon mask! ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, it's hard to go wrong with a good aloe and honey combo, @Shosh85!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Tonight's mask fits all themes- inspired by BIC & both of the letters M & N

Mahalo the bean mask, inspired by @eshoe & also heard about this brand from one of the few youtubers that I watched (they are since, fewer still๐Ÿ˜•) but it is New to me. 

 

Fit?its a wash off mask. You apply it to your face while damp

 

Smell?you really smell the coffee, it is muted but it's there

 

Consistency?mud with grounded coffee in it. It's dark (think coffee) but you can add/take away depending on how opaque you want the mask to be. I want to make my sample stretch but I used about 2 dimes sized worth. It dries down but remains very comfortable on. Doesn't tighten up. 

 

Ease of use?no issues, washes off fairly easy with warm water. No cloth needed. I left this on for 30 min. 

 

Would I  purchase/try again? Yes, & im trying not to buy the fs until I finish the sample but this mask performed excellent- exfoliated but hydrated at the same time. Dare i say a miracle worker, I had some texture on my cheek & it's gone! ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค

Thank goodness they offer minis now, because this mask is expensive! ๐Ÿค‘thank you @@eshoe for letting us know about the minis

Oh, also used my mint chocolate mini laneige

 

It's not letting me add pics. ๐Ÿ˜•will try again tomorrow. 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Happy to hear you got such great results from this one! I really enjoyed this one as well! Have you tried anything else from the brand?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I got a petal mask mini too but saving that when my face "needs" it. Tomorrow is a beach day so it might get taken out then @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ–
