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

Oh @WinglessOne, hugs to you๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’• At least it sounds like youโ€™ve got things under control now, though it must not feel back to normal just yet. Thank you for sharing, itโ€™s good to be reminded that our skin can be finicky and we need a backup plan for when things backfire:(

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @eshoe ! I'm trying not to rush recovery, especially since the weather's changing (we're finally in fall mode here). But yep, it's good to have a bad reaction kit for unintended mishaps. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

I didn't mention cold compresses but I've also done lots of those this month. At night, I've been soaking 2 bamboo rounds with cold water, sometimes rubbing a bit of my COSRX cica serum on them, and tossing 'em in the fridge (inside a plastic bag) to use the next morning. It's the little things that make my skin happy lately. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne I had to screenshot your remedy as inevitably it will happen to me sometime soon. Love the idea about soaking the bamboo pads, it sounds very soothing and now I have to go hunt down those, too๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne Oh my!  Poor thing!  It is amazing how the skin reacts to products it doesn't like.  I'm sure you are back to pampering it. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @tjffc! The funny thing (well, funny now; I wasn't laughing earlier this month) is my previous weeks of babying was done to recover from a bad reaction to a different product. Good grief... I'll be glad when I can see my dermatologist in person again, though I'm bracing for lots of lecturing. ๐Ÿ˜„ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne Yes!  The dermatologist is my favorite MD.  They are worth their weight in gold and in my case a miracle worker!  I'm sure you will just get a tiny scolding.๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne holy ouch!! Chemical burn,,, do you think it's going to scar?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  I'm not sure if I'll have a scar under my left eye, but my right undereye is healing nicelyโ€”slowly, but nicelyโ€”so hopefully the left will follow suit. If not, well, I'll just have to up my concealer game under that eye. ๐Ÿ˜„ ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@WinglessOne Oh No! I hate when that happens. it looks like you have a good routine! I got a bit too rough with one of those under the skin acne spots on my chin and I've also been finding the CBD Herbivore oil to be super helpful in calming things down! Totally one of the best gwp I've selected from Sephora and I'll for sure buy the full size when it runs out

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @Kim888 ! Herbivoreโ€™s CBD oil is (IMO) the best thing the brandโ€™s ever made. Iโ€™m glad itโ€™s helping you, too!

Catch up again - N & M / Sephora Collection week

 

I continued the Mediheal train with some awesome goodies from @keana1 - thank you!

Both were similar (and good!) experiences. They have clear slightly sudsy serum. The scent level is light out of the bag and really can't be smelled during wear. The lemon lime smelled mostly lemon with some other citrus vibes too. The acai berry (hmm..have I ever smelled acai berry?) had an even lighter scent and was maybe mixed berry to my nose. The fit was great though there were a few spots with folding/puckering. I wore the lemon lime 30 and the acai berry 25. The 25 minute wear was better because the 30 min left the nose area too dry. The acai berry left a slight tack that faded within 5 minutes and I applied moisturizer after both. My skin looked bright and even. Another win for Mediheal and A-.

I planned to use both my Sephora Collection masks (I think these are the only two I have in my stash currently) - the nose strip and the almond foot masks - both from the kind and generous @faeriegirl. I'm a sucker for Biore so I had to compare.

The strip fit nicely but did have a fragrance - I think it was the witch hazel. It dried down and unfortunately I had mixed results with removal. Some of it was left on my nose and in areas that needed some TLC so that was a bummer. But other areas that removed cleanly pulled a lot of gunk and even a couple thicker ones which was super satisfying for my gross self. I'd try this again if it came into my life but will likely stick to a Biore strip on occasion. B+

My intention was to treat my feet during that weekend and well, the entire family got sick. My feet are actually quite soft though I haven't been doing anything to them so I'll save those booties for another time.

 

The sickness did give a great opportunity to bust out some steam eye patches. I went with this version which I'm pretty sure are also from @faeriegirl (otherwise I snagged them out of MOtM)

I couldn't sleep in them but wore them for probably 30 minutes before bed. The heat was very soothing and did help with relaxing me while I tried to breathe. So happy to have a few other kinds from some generous BICers to try when I need this again!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  These masks sound so great! It's too bad they aren't easier to find! The packaging alone would make me want to buy them!

I love the steam eye masks, especially when I'm not feeling well - they are so comforting! They would make a great gift/stocking stuffer!

So sorry to hear everyone's sick! I hope you all start feeling better soon!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @Shosh85! I saw there were some on masksheets but when I click them it says "out of stock." Maybe one day I'll run across them. Here's hoping!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Those Mediheal masks look great, @ShortErica! The berry scent, especially so๐Ÿฅฐ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes! I'd love to run across this line in TJ Maxx or Marshalls @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica I hope your family is feeling better!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

We are! Thanks @lmaster ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I don't think I've seen that line from Mediheal before but it's looks really nice. I'm glad they both worked out nicely for you, @ShortErica!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Me either until @keana1 sent them my way @quspork. I wonder if it is a US vs Canada thing

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica omg that juice packaging is so cute! I laughed at the acai berry - you're totally right, it's one of those things that seems to be in lots of skincare and smoothies but I've never actually seen. Both of the masks sounded really interesting !

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Agreed @Kim888! Acai berry in drinks sure but although my house always gets raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries, there's never any acai berries ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ
