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

Idk @lmaster ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ I expected there to be a little bag inside like REN uses, but it is more like DE (no internal bag). At least I am able to use it, because itโ€™s a good one!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That's sad!! @eshoe I'm so sorry this happened ๐Ÿ˜” but you have a more positive attitude than I may have had ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Well @lmaster I think weโ€™ve all been making a bit more lemonade than usual this year๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Ooh, this sheet mask sound wonderful! Love that kind of material/texture! I think the other mask you're thinking of is this one ๐Ÿ‘‡

.... you gifted me this one and you told me it reminded you of the Missha mask I gifted you ๐Ÿ˜‰ I haven't had the chance to try it yet, but I can't wait!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

YES thatโ€™s it, @Shosh85@PrettyPaint gifted me one and I loved it....itโ€™s like a little masking train๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Haha! I love it! All aboard! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Okay!  I decided to do a pedicure last night and that never happened but I told myself Iโ€™d do one this morning instead.  I got the foot bath down from my closet and ended up cleaning and reorganizing my palettes๐Ÿ˜…  Itโ€™s now 3pm and hot water is in the foot bath.  I stuck my feet in and of course it spilled out all over so I had to clean that up and add some cooler water cause ouch!   Settled in and soaking my feet. 
Step 1 - salt soak.  The soak smells like straight up cinnamon and is tinted orange.  I suppose thatโ€™s one of the pumpkin spices so not mad just not what I expected.  It still smells great!  There are no instructions for how long to soak my feet so I am going with 20 minutes cause Iโ€™m enjoying the vibration and massage and I didnโ€™t pull this foot bath out and clean my closet for nothing! 
Step 2- sugar scrub- this smells like pure cinnamon as well.  Whereโ€™s the nutmeg and clove?  A quick look at the ingredients says they didnโ€™t bother with anything but pumpkin extract and cinnamal. Is cinnamal another word for  cinnamon? Oh itโ€™s what gives cinnamon itโ€™s scent. And itโ€™s toxic for fish if it gets into the water supply.  Hmmmm.  The scrub feels great and smells great even though it doesnโ€™t smell like pumpkin spice.  
Step 3- mud mask-again just smells like cinnamon.  Is this why this product was in a subscription box?  The mask is suuuuuper creamy.  Itโ€™s to be kept on for 3-5 minutes.  Iโ€™m going with 5 cause Iโ€™ve gotta make this process and the cleanup afterward worth it.  The mask doesnโ€™t dry down and is easy to rinse off.  
Step 4- massage butter- cinnamon scented massage butter.  Itโ€™s thinner than what I consider massage butter but itโ€™s still thick moisturizing and smells good.  Thereโ€™s more massage butter than you could possibly need for your whole body in a packet so I will smell like cinnamon for a while:D 
All in all a good experience.  My feet are happy for the love and smell like cinnamon:). Iโ€™d recommend this but donโ€™t expect pumpkin spice.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That foot bath looks super relaxing, I'm sorry getting it out though was a bit of a hassle, @heartsmyface!! Glad the mask set seemed to work out, although too bad it didn't smell like pumpkin!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface  Well, it's a bit of a bummer there was no Pumpkin scent, but cinnamon still sounds great and the foot bath just looks SO relaxing! Glad you could pamper yourself a little! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'll take cinnamon spice!! @heartsmyface looks so relaxing!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

This sounds like a cinnamon-foot heaven, @heartsmyface!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface oooh sounds fun! Is that the one that came in FFF this season?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888   It is!  :D.   

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sounds like a treat @heartsmyface. In high school I had a paraffin wax bath that I'd use for my hands and feet. Now I want some type of pampering device again!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Ouhhhhh, that sounds divine and also somewhat messy.  How do you clean a parrifin bath?  ๐Ÿง. 

exit- Iโ€™m watching how to videos on wax baths!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface As long as the wax was mostly clean, we left it in and it would harden. Then when we would use it again, just reheat. It was the kind that you plugged in and it melted and kept it warm. Once the wax looked gross we would dig out the solid pieces and add new wax. I forget if that was what was instructed or we felt more confident disposing it that way than dumping out warm wax.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica   Okay that doesnโ€™t seem so bad  knowing beeswax is antibacterial.  And cooled off seems a less messy way of doing things.   

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface  Omg I need to invest in one of those foot baths!!! And the scent of that soak sounds so yummy!! Perfect treat!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ather   Itโ€™s not something I would have ever thought was a good idea to buy.  It was a gift from my hubs around six years ago.  I remember lowkey not thinking Iโ€™d ever use it but it turned out I loved it.  Too bad I went and stashed it on the top shelf of my closet when we moved.  I forgot about it.  Iโ€™m going to store it somewhere a little more accessible ๐Ÿ˜„

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oooouh, look at you @heartsmyface! I love a good foot soak. ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  It felt great! My feet are feeling particularily soft right now.  I must do this more often.
