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

@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! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks so much @ather. I didn't realize that it was quite so pricey - I think I actually got it in a boxycharm box I'm realizing. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint that GREEN on your nails is so, so pretty! I've been curious about the OH, sounds like one to try for sure. I keep waiting for a DS, I likely missed it but hopefully there will be a holiday set. The fact that you use it weekly gives me hope that it would be gentle enough for dry and dehydrated skin:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Awww thanks @eshoe. I would never had tried the PHAT Glow had I not learned about it here (I think just because the name seemed silly). It seems gentle enough, but I am careful not to get it anywhere near my eyes.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint love your nails!! I bet your kids got a good laugh at the leaves ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks so much! @lmaster. Yeah, my kids were pretty confused at first, but they always enjoy the fun, colorful masks! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  The masks in this line that have the word "cocoon" in the title have "Silkworm Cocoon Extract" in the ingredients. The very first mask I ever tried was the "Cocoon Willow Silky Mask" and it had no mouth hole - I was super confused ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ถ

The Phat Glow Facial sounds great! I've been seeing a lot of positive reviews for that one! Glad to hear it works great for you! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


PS: I LOVE your nails! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Haha! Oh, my goodness - I remember you posting about the mask with no mouth hole. I truly don't think I could handle that. I don't know a whole lot about silkworm cocoon extract. I briefly tried looking up how it's harvested, and I guess it's maybe similar to to silk production? Not really sure. And thanks about the nails - I felt like doing a Halloween-type look.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint @How cute are those eye patches! Sorry to hear you were allergic to them 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888  They were super cute. I think I would likely be ok to try them again. I'm noticing that most anything has been a little irritating to my eye area lately, so I think it may just be seasonal allergies.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The Pacifica eye patches are super cute, @PrettyPaint. It's too bad they were causing some tingling, but at least the kids were amused haha!
