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 when I love to use them @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster   Sounds like we all pretty much share the same thoughts and opinions about this one! Definitely a great low-key, soothing mask! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh yeah, it would be like a lighter version of an aloe soothing mask in the summer @lmaster - good idea!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

SNP Animal Rabbit Face mask. Says balancing and brightening. Well, it is hydrating and my skin looks brighter when itโ€™s well hydrated. Horrible fit for me, lots of snip snip. Still have a couple of these left. I like them. Has a nice scent to it, delicate and not overwhelming.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  SNP makes some nice masks! It's too bad the fit was off, but it sounds like it gave you some great results! Bonus points for being super cute! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿฐ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yay for delicate scents @Weetart!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That design is so cute @Weetart 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster Hah! Yes it is and also a bit terrifying! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I went into Q & J / Overnight Mask week with some jelly masks pulled from @missjeanie ๐Ÿ˜

 

First up SNP Firming

Whoa this had lots of jelly serum on the mask. It smelled sweet leaning floral to me. The mesh-like tencel material was comfy and the fit was good. I wore it 25 minutes which seemed to be the correct time. I let the jelly absorb and applied some extra jelly from the pack to my neck. There was a very slight stick that went away quickly. Firming claims always make me double take but my face did look a bit firmed (around the checks seemed more defined). And although this wasn't intended for hydration, I forgot to apply moisturizer and don't think my skin missed it. There was tons of extra jelly that I saved and still have to use. I wish fragrance wasn't in the middle but the SNP was better than Kina for me, and I should compare to Yadah while it's fresh. We'll see what this week brings.

Next was SNP Hydrating

Same fit as the other but this one didn't feel like there was as much jelly distributed on the mask. So after I applied, I added jelly from the pack on my face. I wore it a little over 25 (lost track of time) but my skin felt similar. The remaining jelly absorbed nicely, only a light stick under chin which faded quickly. This one had more of a rose floral smell. My face was hydrated and I enjoyed it. Again, tons of extra jelly in this packet too despite me needing to use some on the mask. I saved it in a different jar and will be using both at some point. I'm not wasting it!

Both masks were a thumbs up from me. I'd say A-. I wish fragrance wasn't in the middle of the ingredients. These are the type where I would use again but at my current stash level, won't run out to buy. Thanks again missjeanie! What's everyone's favorite jelly mask? (Did I ask this last week? Mom brain is killing me)

 

I also planned to do a couple overnight masks but that didn't work out. My husband noticed dried blood on my check on day. I have a small mole next to my ear and it was cut somehow. The next couple days I kept finding dry blood but wasn't sure how it was being irritated so I went to the dermatologist and they removed it. So I limited putting products on, especially sleeping and moving it around of my pillow. Eh, I'll get to some overnight masks another time. ๐Ÿคท

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica those look like they fit perfectly! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, just little puckers by the chin but so so good @lmaster! Couldn't ask for much better than that. ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Happy you enjoyed these! It's been awhile, but I remember liking those too!

 

I have mom brain too, so if you did ask it, I don't remember ๐Ÿ˜‚ I have two jelly masks that are a tie for first place:  Ultru I'm Sorry For My Skin pH5.5 Brightening Jelly Mask and the Jin Jung Sung Snail Honey Jelly Sheet Mask I just posted reviewed on.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I remember reading your review about the I'm Sorry For My Skin @Shosh85 and unfortunately found a tampered box at my Marshalls store. That would have broken the mask no buy before the Yadah had all the masks been there. And I'll have to read the other one and take notes cause I don't want to forget.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Last nights forgotten mask, one that I pass on. I'm not familiar with it๐Ÿค” but im glad i finally broke down & used it! So good. 

 

Fit?not bad at all. Little wide underneath the nose but it's thin enough just to push up out of the way

 

Smell?you really smell the lavender. Which is ๐Ÿ˜ for me

 

Consistency?the mask itself is thin looks almost gauze like (has the tiny squares in it), saturated nicely with serum

 

Ease of use?no issues. Left it for about 25 min. Took off the mask, after a few minutes my face did feel sticky but waited a few more minutes & everything soaked in without tack.๐Ÿค—

 

Would I  purchase/try again? Yes!!!! I think I have 1 more of the vitamin F. I think @llmaster sent me one so for that im grateful! My skin looks & feels balanced & soft. Finished off the night with Laneige mint chocolate. Which i figured out what it smells like to me. Mint chocolate chip ice cream, since I really started digging into it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  So awesome that you finally used it and loved it!!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee I was eyeing this mask recently and you've convinced me, the gauze texture sounds intriguing!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

So happy you had a great experience!! Mint chocolate chip ice cream mmmmmmmmmm ๐Ÿ˜‹ @sonnydee 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  I had to look up the ingredients for this one, because I thought it might be a deer velvet mask - but it looks like it's just what your skin is supposed to feel like when your done ๐Ÿ˜‚ Glad to hear this one turned out nice for you! Love the gauzy-type masks! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

P is for Pink and K is for Karuna 

Spoiler
I was excited to try out the VS pink mask - it definitely gave me all the nostalgic vibes. I totally remember when the Victoria secret beauty section seemed luxurious haha. The mask itself was fairly average, the fit wasnโ€™t too bad and scent was innocuous. I didnโ€™t find it as hydrating as some others Iโ€™ve tried but it wasnโ€™t overly tacky or anything. Iโ€™d give it like a B-. 

The Karuna foot mask was interesting ! In terms of the booties themselves, I felt that the fit was better than the Sephora brand ones, but they werenโ€™t as sturdy. My toe sort of ended up poking a hole in one of them when I was massaging the lotion around. The lotion itself was very nice and hydrating, on par with the Sephora brand ones I would say. OverallI I would definitely use this again!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The foot masks sound nice @Kim888. I think I took something from this brand from Masks On the Move though I don't think it was a foot mask.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888 when you mentioned that your toe poked a hole through the foot mask, it reminded me of the dissolving Karuna eye gels. I can't imagine the foot masks are anywhere near the same category, but it was funny imagining  ๐Ÿ˜„ 

 

I used to LOVE the VS glosses!!! Beauty Rush, those lasted forever on the lips.
