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

@Shosh85, thereโ€™s a purple version and a green one too. I think I used the purple one last year, or maybe the year before that. Iโ€™m going to try really hard to get through a handful of more masks in my stash before restocking. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ I should probably start to sift through my restock list ๐Ÿ“ so I donโ€™t go too crazy when I let myself loose! ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi very interesting about the serum,,, please keep us posted if you get the chance to buy another

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster, Iโ€™m very curious to see how the cream serum on this one performs when I use a mask thatโ€™s not so close to the expiration date. ๐Ÿค” 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

P is for pimple. And K for Killa

๐Ÿ˜ฒused this last night & overnight after getting a sample in a Ulta gwp. It didn't have the clean swab & I did see some favorable results later- I think it speed up the healing time of that blemish, so i ordered a small pack with a recent order- to try again. You first clean the area with what looks like an alcohol pad- & it does include alcohol & after 15 sec or so place the patch on. (tucked inside the plastic). This time the pimple was on my cheek & being there really helped the comfort of these. I didn't feel it, its almost invisible. Peeling it off this morning wasnt to bad & my pimple does feel & look less angry. I also feel like it shrank. I bought a 4 pack $16, i think I would use these for the more stubborn ones. But with peace out patches you get more bang for your buck at 19 dots for $20.




Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Interesting @sonnydee, was your pimple without a head? I don't get those deep ones often but when I do, I'm looking for something to ease the pain and lessen the time since the hydrocolloid patches tend to do well on only the ones already popping out.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes @ShortErica they want you to use these on newly formed so mine was at the sore bump stage but no head. I woke to it being so small & now its completely gone.๐Ÿ˜ so it works but expensive

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™ve wondered about these @sonnydee. ๐Ÿง Itโ€™s always nice to find something youโ€™d use on the stubborn ones that always seem to make an appearance at the most inconvenient times!!! ๐Ÿ˜– 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

You only get 4 in the small pack & so one night you could end up using them all! @itsfi so yeah, save these for the more stubborn ones. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Thanks for the great review! Good to know peace out is a better bang for my buck!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Definitely @ather ๐Ÿค—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Oh, I remember being confused about the swab thing. I think I also got a free sample from ulta and was trying to figure out what the swab thing meant.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think they must've overlooked adding a swab to the sample @PrettyPaint mine didn't have 1 either & it left me scratching my head too ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿ˜œ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee pretty sure this is the most intricate packing I've seen for a pimple patch. Seems no matter what I try, the heavy hitter still remains Kate Somerville EradiKate 1 oz/ 30 mL

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm happy to hear that you found something that works @eshoe it's always a good feeling. That one was a different one too ๐Ÿค” but sadly, did not a thing for me.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  These sound nice! Glad to hear it helped! I definitely agree though, it's hard to beat the Peace Out ones! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That's a pretty cool looking pimple dot @sonnydee 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sounds interesting @sonnydee @but agreed itโ€™s hard to beat the peace out ones 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I keep meaning to post these....

I can't totally remember why I chose this one for this week's theme. I think perhaps because it was going to expire this month maybe?  The 23 years Cocoon Gold Silky Mask. It was pretty comfortable to wear and refreshing. I'm not really sure why it's called cocoon (I sure hope it's not an ingredient, but I couldn't read the ingredients on the back). From what I recall, it smelled a bit minty.



Here's a P mask: Pacifica Leave Pretty Anti-Puff Eye Patches. I think they actually did visibly depuff my eyes, but I actually couldn't wear them the whole time because my eyes started to feel slightly tingly/itchy. My eyes have been really sensitive lately, though. They were cute and my kids were amused (and kept asking why I had leaves on my face). 



Lastly, I have used this at least two times this week: Ole Henriksen Phat Glow Facial. I learned about it here, and I really like it. It leaves my skin feeling nice and smooth and has helped clear up some blemishes. 



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint, I know this is the mask thread but your nails!!!! So fun! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ–ค Those Pacifica under eye gels are cute; itโ€™s too bad that they caused some tingling. The OH cleared up some blemishes???!!! Very interesting .... Iโ€™m adding this one to my list of things to research. ๐Ÿ“ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  If you research it, let me know your opinion on the ingredients. It seems pretty gentle. I've been getting some blemishes on my chin (I assume it may be from wearing masks - for covid, not skincare). 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Iโ€™m glad the Ole is working for you. I definitely need to add to my try list!
