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

@ather, I hear ya. ๐Ÿค— I'll let you know if I'm finding a combination of products or ingredients that are working. At the moment, I'm thinking a 'safe' approach will be for me to use facial oils in my evening routine and I'm thinking through a couple of routines for the morning that'll give my skin enough hydration and moisture and keep maskne reactions to a minimum. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Sounds good!! If I discover anything I will let you know as well!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi the innisfree sounds interesting, and based on your initial experience, very forgiving on your part that you are willing to give it another go. I hope a fresher version gives your better adherence and overall experience ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, my first go with this one wasnโ€™t bad at all. Itโ€™s entirely possible that the mask might have performed better had I used it closer to when I purchased it, and not so close to the expiration date. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ  So another go seems like itโ€™s in order. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I really like the sound of this one! I could've totally missed it, but what is the scent like and what is the material? Sorry for the questions, but I'm super interested in this one ๐Ÿ™‚

Interesting about the white cast - not sure I've come across serum like that! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ack!! You didnโ€™t miss it @Shosh85; I completely forgot to include that info. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ 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. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 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. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ 

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! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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.
