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

That sheet masks sounds fabulous @sonnydee; love the black and white design on the packaging too! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I kept putting it off due to the long wear time but I'm glad I finally had the time & desire to try it. I dont know if its worth $11 - found on Amazon for 1 mask ๐Ÿ˜ณbut I'll use the ones  got. They'll probably pop up on ipsy again if I really like them  @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Q is for Quret

Quret Brazil Nut.jpeg

Heavily saturated (but not dripping) in a clear, thin, and unscented essence, the soft, thin, Tencel material of the Quret Brazil Nut Mask Sheet clings gently and snugly to the skin, melding into the contours of my face. The spacing and shape of the eyes, nose and mouth need no additional adjustments. The width of the mask is just a hair too wide at the temples, hardly enough to require use of my mini scissors, which with this particular mask, is used to snip off about half an inch at the chin and jawline. The strip removed is more than enough for the sliver of my forehead not covered by the top portion of the sheet mask.

Half an hour passes very quickly as the mask wears so comfortably. With how saturated the mask still feels after my 30-minute masking sesh, it seems like an additional half hour could be had without the sheet mask going dry, which is something I'll try another day because, despite some tackiness after removing the mask and pressing in the remaining essence, the final results - hydrated, nourished skin - were very nice and perfect for my dehydrated, exhausted skin that feels like it is beginning to lean ever-so-slightly dry in certain parts of my face.    

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Unscented?? Interesting! @itsfi sounds like a comfy mask ๐Ÿ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yum and also yay for the mask, @itsfi. It sounds like this was a good one. I love a well-saturated mask!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Right @quspork! Sometimes the food / snack is better than the mask. ๐Ÿ˜† I love a mask that is saturated in sheet masks, especially when the mask does a good job of holding in the essence and itโ€™s not dripping everywhere. ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Sounds like a lovely mask! And paired well! Iโ€™ve heard that Brazil nuts are really good for you!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes @ather, there are some great skincare and healthcare benefits to Brazil nuts. โ™ฅ๏ธ I learned a lot about it after doing some research on Brazil nuts - I often like to delve into a little research of the ingredients in my skincare / masks. โ˜บ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Happy to see this one here, @itsfi! It was my Q pick for the week, but havenโ€™t posted it yet. Itโ€™s the only Brazil nut mask Iโ€™ve seen. Curious if you have one from this line you prefer over the others๐Ÿค” 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah @eshoe, I havenโ€™t come across a mask with Brazil nuts in it until this Quret one. Iโ€™ve tried a couple others from this line and this Brazil Nut has worked out the best so far. Hopefully it works out for you; it seems to do a nice job of nourishing the skin.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I love Brazil nuts and I'm pretty sure I've never run across a mask with it! I have this brand on my list to try out sometime - looks like there's a good variety and they're pretty inexpensive as well! Did you buy all the masks from this line?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, same with me - this is the first mask Iโ€™ve seen where Brazil nuts are a key ingredient, which of course, drew me in even more. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have all of the masks from this line but havenโ€™t tried them all of them yet. Of the ones Iโ€™ve used so far, this one is my favorite - itโ€™s well suited to our skin types. I may have 2 of certain masks; I need to be better about not picking up duplicates before trying out a mask. Not having so many masks will probably help with that. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sounds lovely @itsfi . Any product that has to do with Brazil nuts and berries always attracts me, I think because they are so often awesome. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I don't usually have Brazil nuts so I was happy that the bag of mixed nuts I had at the house included them in the mix @Weetart. Paired with the Brazil nut sheet mask, it was a treat for my tummy and my face.

I uh "tried" this last night. I couldn't get the stuff out of the ear for over 10 minutes. I gave up. Tried to cut it to do it myself and that didn't work either.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah it takes some work to pop that sucker @Samtian 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster Too much work! masking is supposed to be relaxing lol. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I hear ya @Samtian! I hear ya!

@lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Awe, I'm sorry this one gave you a hard time! I usually roll it up real tight (like I'm rolling up a sleeping bag) and then press down. This has always worked for me! Hopefully you have better luck next time! ๐Ÿคž

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Thanks, lol I'm just super weak.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  When the folded ear's too difficult to pop even when pressing the palm of my hand over it, I press a hard object over itโ€”usually a glass jar containing a mask or moisturizer, sometimes an old compactโ€”and that does the trick. I hope you have better success next time!
