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.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ack!! You didn’t miss it @Shosh85; I completely forgot to include that info. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Sorry about that. The material feels like cotton to me and there is a scent that is very familiar to me. It has a slightly sweet, maybe floral, scent to it. The scent has bugged me for a while; I keep smelling the inside of the pouch to see if it will jog my memory, but still, nothing. 😂 You are one of the people I thought of when I was using this one because it is something I think those of us with dry or dehydrated skin could like. 👍🏼 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Thanks! I love how this one sounds! I'll definitely have to purchase this one soon. It's nice that Innisfree products are always pretty affordable! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, there’s a purple version and a green one too. I think I used the purple one last year, or maybe the year before that. I’m going to try really hard to get through a handful of more masks in my stash before restocking. 🤞🏼 I should probably start to sift through my restock list 📝 so I don’t go too crazy when I let myself loose! 😂 

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, I’m very curious to see how the cream serum on this one performs when I use a mask that’s not so close to the expiration date. 🤔 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

P is for pimple. And K for Killa

😲used 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.😍 so it works but expensive

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I’ve wondered about these @sonnydee. 🧐 It’s always nice to find something you’d use on the stubborn ones that always seem to make an appearance at the most inconvenient times!!! 😖 

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 🤗

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 🤷😜

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 🤔 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! 😃

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 it’s hard to beat the peace out ones 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Taking a page from @Weetart's brilliant tie-in earlier this year for an O mask, I went with an O for oeufs (French for eggs). 🥚🥚
Eggs!!! (or for the letter of the week, ouefs!)Eggs!!! (or for the letter of the week, ouefs!)
Dear Packer Egg Ceramide Mask comes with two separate sheet masks, both fashioned after your traditional egg. One mask, the white mask, focuses on the egg white and the other, the yellow mask, shines a spotlight on the egg yolk. I used these masks earlier this week but having put up this post, I'm thinking an omelette might be on tonight's dinner menu. 🥚😉

 Egg White MaskEgg Yolk Mask
Material & Essence:Medium thick cotton mask saturated in slightly viscous essenceSoft, slightly thick-ish, stretchier yellow-hued cotton fiber heavily coated in a creamy, milky essence
Fit & Adherence:This mask seemed more narrow at the sides, which is actually better for me. About half an inch too long at the chin and slightly short at the forehead (though to be fair, I have a lot more forehead than the norm - lol). Holes for the eyes and mouth were very narrow and both required adjustments. Adherence was good.Similar to the egg white mask as far as width was concerned. Only slightly long at the chin and the holes for the eyes and mouth were slightly wider than the egg white mask, but I still made adjustments to the inner corners of the eyes for a better fit. Adherence was good.
Scent:Smelled slightly of a floral lotion. Fades away by the time the mask is smoothed over the contours of the face. Very faint scent, with perhaps a chemical scent. Not off-putting but not necessarily pleasant. Wears off almost immediately upon removal from packet.
Claim(s):Smooths rough, flaky skinNourishing, moisturizing and provides elasticity to the skin 
Performance & Results:Interestingly, about half way through my wear time, I felt light tingling on my right cheekbone for maybe a minute or two. I was paying extra attention after that and was prepared to remove the mask if the tingling continued but it (thankfully) stopped tingling. There was some essence remaining after I removed the mask but my skin absorbed it pretty quickly. My skin felt soft, smooth, hydrated and bouncy / plump. I felt a slight tingling in my lower leftside of my chin at around minute 3, but it didn't linger longer than a minute. Results-wise, oooouuuhh! This one will be nice for those with dehydrated or dry skin, or those looking for a nourishing mask on a cold night. My skin felt very moisturized after removing and I thought I might be able to forego moisturizer. That wasn't the plan but I ended up falling asleep shortly after removing the mask and without applying mymoisture (eek!). To my great surprise, when I looked in the mirror this morning, my skin looked and felt moisturized, without any dry patches and without any feeling of dryness or tightness.
