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

That's awesome to hear the scent was better than expected @itsfi πŸ™Œ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Right @lmaster?!! I love lemon πŸ‹ but lemon scented things always make me wonder whether it will smell like fresh lemons or a cleaning product. 😬 The freshness of the lemon helps with tea tree oil scent, I think.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That's great to know! @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

So glad I waited to hear your top pick of the Inna Organic masks, @itsfi! Ever since you mentioned them, I’ve been eyeing them. The mattifying aspect makes me think that it *might* make a good day mask or even pre-event one. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It worked out well for me as a morning mask yesterday @eshoe. All the masks I’ve tried so far from this line have been good. Hopefully the last one I have performs well, too.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I’m loving the Inna packaging!! And I have to say I haven’t tried the PTR mask yet so maybe a new mask for me to check out when my others are gone!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Me too @ather, the packaging on this line is pretty. 😍 The PTR is my favorite gommage peel. Every once in a while a DS becomes available in the Rewards Bazaar and that’s a good way to try it out.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Thanks for the tip. I’ll keep an eye out!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The Inna mask sounds great, @itsfi! I can't definitely see lemon and tea tree working out well together. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It was a wonderful pairing @quspork! β™₯️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  The sheet mask sounds great! I've never heard of lemon-scented tea tree, but I'm glad to hear it was pleasant! πŸ‹πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It was a first for me @Shosh85. The lemon did an excellent job of toning down the scent of the tea tree oil. πŸ‘πŸΌ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

My Desire Paradise Pack and my broken Pacifica πŸ˜‰

The Pacifica Crystal Lava Bubbling Charcoal Mask is one of my favorite newer masks. @lmaster mentioned there is a pineapple🍍 one, too - yum! I tried a thicker layer this time and had a very thick layer of bubbles, enough to make me look sillyπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ Wash off is easy, skin felt clean and soft. 

The Purenskin My Desire Paradise Pack is a slightly textured sheet mask, akin to the Missha Ice Sorbet. I’ve only tried one other mask (wish I could remember which one) like this, so it was fun to discover another one. 

The scent; barely there but it reminded me of something tropical. Jasmine or Gardenia, but not offensively strong at all. Plumeria is listed as an ingredient, so that might be what I caught. The fit was another bonus, just an all around good fit. There was a a generous amount of extra serum (which was a little thicker than water) to pat on my checks and forehead.

Left this on around 30 minutes, removed and found a little bit of tack that remained until I finished with my skincare. I would definitely use this mask again!

Ingredients:

Water, Glycerin, Triethanolamine, Xanthan Gum, Butylene Glycol, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, Punica Granatum Fruit Extract, Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract, Morus Alba Fruit Extract.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, Purenskin has some good masks; nice to hear this one worked out well for you.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That’s very good to know @itsfi. I will have to try out more, then. If you have one you like in particular, I would love to hear!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Both masks sound great!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

They are both easy winners, @ather! The Pacifica is a decent price and fun to use. Bubbly, great subtle watermelon scent, easy wash off and happy, clean skinπŸ‘πŸΌ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The Purenskin mask sounds really lovely, @eshoe!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It was, @quspork - and different, too. Love an unusually scented and textured mask, especially when you’ve been on the same wash-off rotationπŸ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh no @eshoe how did it get broken??

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

No idea @lmaster, the pump worked for me to get one pump out (for the scent test when I first got it), and that was it. Stopped working right away. I figured out how to open it though and now use a spatula. Which is kind of like using a dipstick to test the level of oil;)
