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.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™m with you on reusing masks @heartsmyface! I tried the Charlotte Tilbury sheet mask that says it can be reused up to 3 times and it was hard enough getting myself to use it a second time for the sake of trying it out. ๐Ÿ˜ซ I would go nuts 6 times!!! It is interesting though that the eye patch would presumably heat up all 6 times. I donโ€™t know about that. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ 


I like the EH 0.2mm line. ๐Ÿ’• Theyโ€™re ones I consider simple (in a good way), reliable sheet masks and there are a few from the collection that my skin responds well to. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi   Did the CT one perform as nicely the second time round?  The eye patches are still sitting on my night table so thereโ€™s still a chance to reuse them... Iโ€™m a little curious.  Maybe Iโ€™ll try them out on my arm to see if they reheat.  My elbows would likely appreciate done love.  
The ET Collagen masks are my favorite from the line!   I agree theyโ€™re slightly better than filler masks but at filler mask prices.  Theyโ€™re a pretty solid brand overall.  I am trying to recall if I ever used a dud product by them and nothing is coming to mind.  I didnโ€™t like their micellar water but then I donโ€™t like micellar waters in general.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ah yes, the EH Collagen mask from this line is a good one. I can see why itโ€™s your favorite @heartsmyface. I agree about the brand in general too. I keep going back to one of their sunscreens. ๐Ÿ˜


The CT mask was fine the second time but not as great as the first - better adherence the first time, etc. Iโ€™m glad I gave it a try but I prefer the traditional wet sheet masks. The CT is a โ€œdryโ€ mask so I was very surprised that it imparted the moisture it did. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Mmmmm the Tea Tree is pretty borderline, @heartsmyface ๐Ÿ˜† The collagen one is the best!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

From Monday? Sometime earlier...


โ€ƒFrom MOTM


Fit? Ok, lil extra in the temple area. Usual extra in the chin area


Smell?subdued tea tree 


Consistency?clear, had extra in pouch


Ease of use?no issues. I think I even did the dishes with this lil guy on. 


Would I  purchase/try again? Yes. I enjoyed this mask. Bravo! For the person who put it in there. 

And Tonights.

Do I really need to tell the theme? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿฏ

Loves all around. Even though HLavenderโ€ƒ has alcohol, I'll overlook it for all the juicy  goodness it brings me!

It was one of the first I've tried & now, I have a stash no more full price for me!

Really enjoying the Laneige to me it smells like the children's chewable grape Tylenol tabs. I used to take them myself. I was soooo bad about swallowing pills. Still have to trick myself but getting better. Adulting. Ha!




Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee, I keep meaning to give TCS honey lavender mask a go; good reminder, thank you!!! "No more full price for me." So hear you on that! โค๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It was a-me ShortErica! Hahaha. I jotted down that you like tea tree and my nose just can't handle it so I thought someone might enjoy it more in the Masks on the Move box. Glad you enjoyed it @sonnydee!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ugghhh I guess I'm used to the smell. My mom uses it for everything. But it is good for calming blemishes. Thank you for thinking of me & including it. ๐Ÿค— @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

As you saw, my mom brain gets me a lot of the time but when I take notes, they come in handy @sonnydee ๐Ÿ˜€

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Notes & lists! On your phone & on paper. @ShortErica I still forget why I walk into a room though๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜œ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Adulting can be so hard sometimes, huh?! ๐Ÿ˜‚ The chewable/gummy vitamins are my favorite! (I get the ones made for adults, of course ๐Ÿ˜†)
Glad to hear both of these were winners for you! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, chewables are life savers. I did get the Flintstones vitamins during my first trimester with both boys. {The girls didnt really give me any sickness} Any other swallowable prenatal vitamin would gag know..defeat the whole purpose of vitamins @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee you are too funny!! I'm loving the laneige too! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @lmaster most of the time i write my mask reviews while I'm laying in bed, waiting for the this works! Sleep spray to soothe me off to sleep. So if anything ever doesnt make sense. Just ignore it & move on๐Ÿ˜œ you say funny. I say rambling on..

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

O is for The Orchid Skin

Orchid (2).jpeg

Details: The Orchid Skin Hyaluronic Acid Mask is a soft, ultra thin "nude-cell" sheet mask saturated in a clear, lightweight watery essence that smells pleasantly of a blend of a light, slightly sweet lotion and a fresh, subtle fruity-floral scent that reminds me of pomelo.
What I Liked:
  • Adherence is superb - it literally feels like you are not wearing anything - love it! ๐Ÿ˜
  • Fit wasnโ€™t so bad; too large all around the perimeter of my face except the forehead area. The holes for the eyes and mouth were extra large too which were fine by me as I didnโ€™t have to make any adjustments except for the perimeter.
  • Results were outstanding - just the teensiest bit of tack to the touch after 30 minutes of wear and my skin looked and felt hydrated, plump and dewy. โค๏ธ
Area(s) for Improvement: If Iโ€™m being very picky, there could be more material for the area above the lip - itโ€™s a very thin strip that barely covers half of the length of the philtrum. Also, thereโ€™s added fragrance but as that is the last ingredient listed, itโ€™s not a significant issue for me personally.
Would I Repurchase?: In a heartbeat. ๐Ÿ’–


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I love how simple yet elegant your photo is!! @itsfi sounds like a beautiful mask

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @lmaster๐Ÿค— I find the packaging on this one to be very pretty; I was definitely drawn in by the aesthetics. ๐Ÿ˜ One of the stems from my orchid plant broke so I was trying to keep it going, and decided to use the broken stem in the photo.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Wow, @itsfi, what a treat this mask must have been! Curious if you picked up the Collagen. Their eye patches look interesting, too.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, I have their eye masks and plan to give them a go this week, which I guess means I need to use them tonight or tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜† I have a few other masks from the brand; I think the collagen mask is one of them. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  -- Is Orchid the brand?  Does the mask have fragrance of any kind?  I would anticipate since it is based on a flower most likely but I like the review and orchids are good plants.  Try as I might I never could get mine to re-bloom the next season.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@MCSSavvy, sorry for the delay in responding; I haven't been online regularly over the last few days and just saw your post. The brand is The Orchid Skin. I just looked at the back of the packet and added fragrance is the last ingredient listed. It wasn't an issue for me with this mask but I do have occasionally have sensitivity to fragrance and I know others do as well. 


I love orchids. ๐Ÿ’– I've had the most success with orchids re-blooming with those that I place near a window that has access to a good source of light, somewhere where the plant gets some but not too much direct sunlight, if that makes sense. And if I'm consistent with feeding it, too - 2-3 ice cubes depending on how large the orchid plant is, once per week. I've had a couple that I've had to say 'good bye' to, but have had one that's been doing really well for a few seasons now. *fingers crossed it keeps its track record.
