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

Oooh it would be fun to try this one,

@PrettyPaint, but definitely not if it had a quinoa scent๐Ÿ˜‚ Itโ€™s not terrible, just kind of...dusty? Anyhow, happy to hear you had a pleasant masking with it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Your description made me laugh. I actually was having trouble conceptualizing how quinoa smells, but I totally get what you mean ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint, it's always fun to read about a new to me skincare ingredient. Your results sound nice and, yes, good it didn't smell like quinoa. Not that quinoa has a bad scent to it, but it would probably make me hungry while masking. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Yeah, it did make me want quinoa just based on the fact that I haven't had it for so long.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint I have a few from this line and I do enjoy them. I may or may not still have this one around... forgot if I used it or gave it away. Glad to hear it was a successful mask!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks so much @Weetart. I haven't seen them around too much, so I wonder if they are being phased out...

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Sounds like a nice one! Glad to hear you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint @Sounds interesting! A super nice fitting mask is always hard to find! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888  I totally agree. I quite frequently have trouble with mask fit, so it's always such a treat to try one that's low maintenance. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

A "K" and Forgotten Wonder to end the week (almost):


Forgotten Wonders most definitely includes the Summer Fridays R + R Mask 2.25 oz/ 64 g. I keep this in my little fridge so it is forgotten wayyyyyy more than used. I derma planed just before, and despite the exfoliating granules in this one, was not concerned knowing just how hydrating this one is. Like a fruity vaseline mask.

The detoskin Kale Cleanse Mask is a decent mask that gives some skin love without being overbearing in any way. The scent - slightly clean/fresh. I have a celery mask from the same brand and hope to compare them, but so far, found it to be a sound filler mask. My skin looked pleasantly plumped after using and also this morning (used the alpyn beauty Hydrating Sleeping Mask with Melatonin & Wild Dandelion 2.0 oz/ 59 mL before heading to bed). Waiting on the Alpyn Huckleberry Mask to arrive hopefully this week. As much as I initially opposed the strongly scented alpyn beauty Melt Moisturizer with Bakuchiol and Squalane 1.7 oz/ 50 mL and sleeping mask, they make my skin so smoothed that I am on pins and needles waiting for it to arrive!

The Bite Beauty Lip Mask in Champagne is a Forgotten Wonder while I am diligently working to finish the Original tube (almost there). I can't wait to open Smashed, finally! It would be fantastic to have my Laneige jars transferred to a tube for easier application, I may have to look into that soon. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe oh the SF mask is so hydrating and smells awesome

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  So happy to hear you're loving the results from the Alpyn products!

Funny you mention the Laneige jars - I've been looking on Amazon for empty lip gloss tubes to transfer the jars to.....


 The only issue is the Laneige possibly being too thick for the syringes, so using a scoop may be necessary. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh YES @Shosh85 this kit looks like a project I would want to take on๐Ÿคฉ @sonnydee04 @sonnydee (not sure which one I should be tagging!) Thanks for sharing, I think a spatula might do the trick.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  I am more than half way done with my FS berry Laneige and am considering buying the lemon one - if I do that I'll definitely be buying a set like this! Would like to go through and read the reviews on them first, and it may be a tedious task to take on, but I think it'd be worth it! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think it would be a fun time @Shosh85 @sonnydee. I should look into it, I would like to depot the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Gummy Bear asap! Hope to see your finished project when/if you decide to do it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

And I'm not sure either @eshoe I'm might to have to close the account- teeni's- that sonnydee is on. Long story short: I'm banned from online ordering for multiple people at 1 address. {My teenage daughter who lives with me & that I buy for. }they are looking into it.....๐Ÿ˜กbut they are both me. This is the only social media I do & I didn't realize I was tucked under her account until I started ranking up. ๐Ÿคท

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ugh that sounds so frustrating @sonnydee ๐Ÿ˜ฃ I hope it gets sorted out soon. Good to know, also. sorry you are having to deal with this!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yea, you are going to want to do this project when you have a lot of frustration to work out @Shosh85 i see a lot of squeezing & "bumping" the tube on the counter to make it go down. Good idea though! I just disposable lip sticks each time instead of putting my finger in the pot. Wasteful i know, but the amount of things i do recycle, drives hubs crazy, so I figure I can get away with stick or 2/week. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Yeah, I'm not sure how much fun it'd be, but I totally think it'd be worth it. If they were in convenient little tubes, I'd definitely use it a lot more often! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, I pulled my Summer Fridays R+R mask from my bin earlier this month and put it in the shower for convenience. My face feels so happily hydrated after using it! ๐Ÿ’— That, the medicine cabinet, and for me at least, my mini fridge, are great places to keep products to be used - I'm less likely to forget a product if they live in one of those places. Do you store a lot of products in your mini fridge?


Summer Fridays R + R Mask 2.25 oz/ 64 g 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Our set ups sound similar, @itsfi! Iโ€™ve been working to get through a good portion of my stash because there are sooooo many minis and they are starting to feel more like clutter than joy. My mini fridge is mostly larger tubes/jars (eye gels), and is packed full. Not sure how you feel about it, but I think a slightly larger version would be ideal๐Ÿ˜‰
