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.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  The fraken mask sounds like  fun experiment! Glad it turned out decent!

I really enjoyed those eye patches too! I agree though, they'd be perfect if they were the sticker type! Happy to hear they worked for you! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I'm thinking I'll use the tabs when I'm working though what I bought in 10 packs. That way I'm merging all the same serum. Though I'm sure more frankenmasks will be in my future too ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Love those panda eye masks @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™ve been curious about that Kina one, @ShortErica - thank you for sharing your thoughts on it! The Panda eye masks are very pleasant, I agree ๐Ÿ˜Š


Happy to hear that the Leaders worked for you. When is still my favorite biocell, but this line is lovely, too.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

You're welcome @eshoe. From this Kina mask I'd considering taking another to try out of MOtM but wouldn't buy a 10-pack if I saw it at TJ Maxx if that makes sense.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes it does, @ShortErica. 10-packs are such a gamble unless you have others willing to play a masking guessing game๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

J is for Jelly




Holika Holika Milky Lemon Jelly Sheet Mask

This is a thin, meshy cotton sheet mask that was saturated with a clear jelly serum and had a creepy character design on it. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿฅด It smelled like a typical sheet mask, with maybe a hint of lemon in there. I didn't really smell anything while the mask was on. The fit was a little off - too long at the chin, and the mouth part didn't line up right, so the strip between the nose and lip kept getting into my mouth - so I just chopped it off. The adherence was ok, except for the chin that didn't seem to want to stay put. I kept the mask on for about 25 minutes, when the chin just completely stopped sticking. There was some light tackiness after removing that absorbed in less than 10 minutes. My face looked a smidge brighter/less dull and my skin felt nicely moisturized and had a nice glow.

I really enjoyed the results from this one and love the jelly serum. I would use this one again but probably wouldn't repurchase because it wasn't the most comfortable mask to wear and just  wasn't anything super amazing.

My face: (is this picture showing up?I've been having trouble posting)



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Give me a lemon scent @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Haha! Right? I was really hoping for a nice lemon scent, but at least it didn't smell like a lemon cleaner! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The package is intriguing @Shosh85. Too bad it wasn't comfy. Otherwise it sounds enjoyable.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Im sure I bought these because of the packaging ๐Ÿ˜‰ For some reason I never expect a character mask to be comfortable ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป It was a fun one though!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Lemon jelly sounds like it would be such a great combo; if only it wore more comfortably @Shosh85! ๐Ÿ˜” 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Love jelly masks - especially during warmer weather! I mainly bought this because it said "jelly" and because of the cute character on the packaging - too bad the mask itself wasn't as cute, but at least it was good for a laugh! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

From last week, P is for pomegranate



Mask Details: Urban Dollkiss Baviphat Juicy Mask Sheet is a thicker leaning cotton mask coated in a milky creamy lotion type essence with a scent that, interestingly, made me think of a raspberry (not pomegranate) kouign amann (see spoilers), or a raspberry cream danish. I know, that is a very specific thing to smell. Folks, I have no idea how I come up with these things; I'm just telling you what came to my mind when I caught the scent. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 
Fit & Adherence: Fit was large all over, and I mean, all over, so I think this mask could accommodate a lot of face sizes and shapes. Adherence was good for the 20 minutes I had it on, but near the end, it felt like it would start drying out in certain areas soon. There's some extra essence in the packet that can be used to remoisten the mask. 
Performance & Results: I was a little disappointed that it seemed like it might start drying near the 20-minute mark; I can typically get in a good 30-40 minutes from most masks, at a minimum. Even so, when I removed the mask, I could feel that my skin felt nicely and happily moisturized and brightened with a fresh-faced glow. I didn't experience any firming that the mask claims, but to be fair, I'm not entirely convinced that I'd see or experience that from a sheet mask in a single use. 
Overall Thoughts: This could be a nice mask for the cooler months, for most if not all skin types, though I'd caution those with very oily skin to be mindful of wear time and the time of year the mask is being used; the essence might be too heavy for some. 
Will I Repurchase?: Maybe. Creamy milky essences are great for my skin in the cooler months and this is one that I would consider picking up again, after working through the rest of my stash. 

What's a kouign amman?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Well @itsfi raspberry danish sounds amazing

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Doesn't it @lmaster? I've been thinking about one since using the sheet mask, but so far, I have been good. The operative words being "so far". ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That's a pretty package @itsfi ๐Ÿ˜Š i think I got 1 mask from this brand & was really impressed by how much I liked it...might have to look into more...*cough* when my stash dwindles...hahaha lovely pic as usual!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahaha @sonnydee! Completely with you on that *cough* ๐Ÿ˜ Iโ€™m somewhat close to using up masks that were purchased pre-2020 so that is encouraging. But it seems I made more sheet mask purchases in the early part of the year, before the stay at home, than I initially thought I did. ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ› Whoops. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  This brand seems to make some nice masks! The first mask I've tried from this brand was from you and I loved it!
I love your scent descriptions! It definitely sounds like a yummy smelling mask! I'm actually not a big fan of pomegranate, well at least by itself - so a raspberry scent actually sounds better to me! Happy to hear it turned out pretty decent! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, when I opened the packet I thought it was a raspberry flavored mask because of the scent and I thought I completely missed on the theme of the week as a result. ๐Ÿคช Then I noticed the flavor was actually pomegranate. ๐Ÿ˜† Iโ€™ve liked the masks Iโ€™ve used from this brand so far; will have to look into it more ... well, maybe after I get through a handful more masks. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Catch up part 1: M & N / BIC made you do it! week


I finished the week before with a Mediheal meant for Glow and then continued on the Mediheal train. I'll repeat that the Mediheal A: PE mask sent to me in unicorn mail by the lovely @eshoe was the mask that won me over and then the sheet mask addiction started. Haha!


I took this Mediheal from a Masks of the Moves box


My face
I know it has been shared before but I'll share it again cause I still chuckle
This had an interesting smell, maybe a bit of package like scent. The fit was similar to other (I.P.I Ampoule Line Friends) - short on forehead but good overall. I did a 30 minute wear then placed it on my neck. It was dripping out of the package and there is a nice amount of extra serum to use (we'll get to that later). I had no tack and my skin looked nice and even. It lived up to its moisturizing claim (though I still put on moisturizer after) but not sure about the pore claims. I think I would need to use over time to give that a fair chance. A-

And to kinda duel with that one I did a different N.M.F. that I got off Amazon in a multi-version kit. Of course it isn't available anymore but these masks had a stellar price on them


My face
It was wider than the other Mediheal NMF, you should be able to tell easily with the picture. I was surprised by the quite different ingredient lists. It also touched my hairline which was slightly annoying but the philtrum was a better size though. It didn't have a prominent scent. In the package, I could sniff a combo of light floral + earthy. Wore 30 minutes I think (I don't have notes but that's what I tend to do if I can). I'm not sure that it firmed but my lines seemed a bit improved and for that I'll also give it an A-.

The first time I used it I graded it an A though I liked the Vita Lightbeam one better. I noted a floral scent then that apparently I couldn't smell as much this time. Hmm.. Always interested how retrying masks are so I figured I'd share.

Had I reviewed sooner, I think I'd have more to say but I wanted to just share the two ingredient lists in case anyone had opinions on why they were different when they are both Natural Moisturizing Factor masks. Even the "goals" on the masks seemed not in line.

Line Friends versionLine Friends versionOther oneOther one

Back to even more Mediheal masks! So another from the multi-version pack was W.H.P. White Hydrating. I don't know what is in it, I should look at ingredients but the black material face masks tend to get along so well with my skin


My face
I'll repeat this too, I'm not sure if it is because of the color but even the same shape masks seem to fit a bit better when it is in a black material. I appreciate it whatever the reason. I wore the mask 30 minutes. It did have kind of a slight brown paper bag type of scent. Something about these masks always masks my skin look quite nice and I appreciated the evenness and whatever else it was giving my skin. I didn't have tack with this either. A-

I gave this one an A- last time but man, my notes are cracking me up "no scent out of package but when sniffed the package got an odd farm with a hint of floral scent" "No tack, helped with redness and fine lines, some sort of sensation when out of tub." I'm wondering if I felt cooling or heat but it did give good results both times so that's a win.

Also from the Mediheal pack was a Collagen mask which is the one from the pack I hadn't tried until now


My face
bare shoulders is not a good look for mebare shoulders is not a good look for me
This had a solid fit. There was a clean type of scent like laundry. Again, I think I did a 30 minute wear. It doesn't plump as much as wanted but skin looked even, and maybe firmed a bit. The not confident results make me sway between A- and B+. I did appreciate with the Mediheal imprint on all of these that I *know* which way to place the mask. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Off to dinner then I've got to catch up some more and read what I've missed!
