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

@Shosh85   17 Stitches!!   Wow!   I've not quite done anything that spectacular.  I think the tie is between - broken tip of finger during midnight bowl at the uni or shard of glass in foot from dancing in the street.  Had to get a tetanus shot from that one.


Thanks for the thumbs up on my masking efforts!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@MCSSavvy so sorry you are having issues!! Your combination of products sound excellent

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I hope your head feels better soon @MCSSavvy migraines are the worst. ๐Ÿ˜ฐ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh no, @MCSSavvy , I hope you're feeling much better now. I'm also a chronic migraine sufferer and can imagine the pain of that on top of a concussion. ๐Ÿ˜ž I hope you got some very good pain relievers (if your normal migraine med couldn't touch this oneโ€”assuming you take meds for them). โค๏ธ 


Your masking sessions sounds very nice. I kinda treat F-Balm as a lightweight moisturizer instead of a mask so, as soon as temperatures drop below freezing, my current bottle will go back into storage til spring. I'm glad you're maybe seeing good results from it, though! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne  -  Thanks!  I've improved slightly but not by much.  I'm not sure what I'll do tomorrow when I go back to work since I look at a computer screen all day and spend a good portion of it on the phone.  The medication I'm on right now makes me sleepy / sleep so not quite conductive to work.  It keeps the pain at bay - particularly if I lie down in a dark room.  It's hard to get comfortable with the neck/back pain/spasms but I'm hoping it shall pass soon.  

I've tried F-Balm alone and while I like that it is lightweight I generally don't feel the right hydration balance if I use it after washing my face.  So I typically use it with a serum, serum and oil or with a moisturizer.  I think it will be interesting to see this winter how I use it.  You just reminded me of my YTTP  Superfood mask.  ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Wishing you healing vibes @MCSSavvy . Sounds like you used some good masks.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Loretta55  -- Thank you. Much appreciated.  It's one of the worst migraine attacks I've had and I have chronic migraines. I've spent most the time in bed, in a dark room without tv, Netflix or music and little screen time.  I think the knot on my head is starting to go down a bit.   

Healing vibes are appreciated.  And it was a nice mask.  I think it will become a regular in the rotation.  ๐Ÿ™‚  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Strawberries, cake and ice cream!


Besides the Perricone MD Cocoa Moisture mask, Skinfoodโ€™s Black Sugar Strawberry is one that is almost entirely too tempting, and just might be good enough to eat. Thank you @itsfi for this weekโ€™s theme which has been very, very enjoyable ๐Ÿ˜Š

The Kocostar Waffle Mask Ice Cream ๐Ÿฆ is the third one from this line that Iโ€™ve tried. I had high hopes for the scent, as the strawberry and honey versions were deliciously scented. This was ok. I didnโ€™t catch anything ice cream-like, though someone with a better nose than I might ( @sonnydee have you tried this one yet?). The fit, feeling and generous amount of thick, clear serum were a treat for my skin, though. This line has impressed me much more so than any other Kocostar masks, and will most definitely go on the repurchase list. 

Finally, a bit of Glossierโ€™s Birthday Balm dotcom, my favorite scent of those Iโ€™ve tried. It is more like a salve in my mind than a gloss, and has a true vanilla cake scent (does not taste as good as it smells, sadly๐Ÿ˜†). I am curious about the new fig scent, but because Iโ€™m not wild about the texture, itโ€™s easy for me to pass. Overall, a fun masking for a Friday night!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe You inspired me to grab a set of the waffle masks and they just came in this weekend- can't wait to try them out!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ooooh I canโ€™t wait to hear about them, @quspork! I hope youโ€™ll like them๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I'm really interested in the waffle masks!!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I have a hunch you would like them @lmaster they feel different than any other mask! And of course, the yummy scents for the most partโ˜บ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm have not tried any of the other waffle masks yet @eshoe maybe when the weather turns your choices!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I will be interested to hear which one is your favorite, @sonnydee!:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe @That packaging is so fun!!! Sorry the scent was disappointing on that one but glad to hear they are good overall! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

As much as their slices are fun, @Kim888, I think the waffles take the cake! I think you would enjoy them, too:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Love that Strawberry wash-off! It is sooo good! @itsfi got me hooked too!

Glad to hear the Waffle Masks are turning out great! I bought the pack too, but have yet to try them. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, I have to say that that Skinfood strawberry wash off mask is one of the best skincare discoveries I've ever made. ๐Ÿ˜ I think I am going to make it a staple in my skincare stash. If I have too many exfoliating wash off masks, I'll put it in my masks-that-smells-like-strawberry-jam part of the collection. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm happy that there have been others who have found their way to it as well. โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ“ It really is such a nice addition to a skincare collection. @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I think a good portion of loves discovered here have been due to your enabling ๐Ÿ˜„

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

We're all one big enabling family. @eshoe @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe @itsfi  Agreed! ๐Ÿ˜Š
