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

Thanks for confirming @sonnydee. I got big cracks with Kiehl's Since 1851 Rare Earth Deep Pore Minimizing Cleansing Clay Mask but not this one. I will have to try the GG one since it seems you and lots of others like it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Spot test first @ShortErica it does have a reputation for burning people 😬

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks for the warning @sonnydee 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica @sonnydee  I tried the GG as a full face mask once and it definitely made my face red. I still love it as a spot treatment though - it works great drying up blemishes!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

So sorry you didn't care for the innisfree, I don't personally think it's a dupe. @sonnydee I like both, but I feel they are pretty different

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

P.s. thanks again for sending me the GR! @lmaster 💚🥑

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I want mud masks to feel like they did something @lmaster I don't get that with the Innisfree🤷 but it's probably because gg spoils me. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It's too bad the Innisfree couldn't compete with the Glam Glow, @sonnydee. It's sounds like the Glow Recipe mask worked out really nicely though!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I was scared of the creaminess...usually can't use the ones that say pretty much a certain skin type- dry. But I have had some luck in the past. Tatcha silk cream only in the winter for me, but I love that stuff! @quspork 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee, sorry to hear the Innisfree one didn’t agree with your skin. 😞 I like the Innisfree one but I wouldn’t say it’s a dupe either for GG SuperMud. Which GR Avocado Melt is that one - the original version or the one with retinol in it?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I have to look at the foil again. But I think its the original? It doesn't say retinol on this sample.... @itsfi 🤔 (the pic)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  The GR sounds great! Happy to hear it could help soothe your redness! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It helped tremendously @Shosh85 my cheek was actually hot to the touch. I was afraid i was going to break out in hives or something but luckily GR to the rescue! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Awesome reviews! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @ather they are a bit longer than my usual but 🤷i felt it needed a better explanation.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Nice J, @sonnydee! The Glow Recipe sounds better than expected. Haven’t tried that or the eye mask due to the retinol, but I read somewhere it’s a very small amount...around 1%. Now you’ve got me interested in it😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I haven't tried the eye mask yet but will review when I do @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

👍🏼 @sonnydee 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe @sonnydee Yeah, I really liked the glow recipe retinol eye mask. The full face one was too creamy for my face. I was thinking about getting a full size for the winter. I have built up an insane tolerance for retinol, it's the only thing that has consistently kept me from breaking out over the years. I have been considering asking to see a dermatologist if they have a stronger version... because a prescription with my healthcare would certainly be cheaper than the products I purchase.

J is for Jin Jung Sung Snail Honey Jelly Mask

Jin Jung Sung Snail Honey Jelly Sheet Mask

This is a super thin tencel sheet mask that was saturated with plenty of slimy serum and had a sort of floral-herbal kind of scent that was pretty light once the mask was on. It had a great fit and was only just a tiny bit too wide at the temples. I kept it on for about a half hour. When I removed there was a little a serum leftover that absorbed quickly and left behind some tackiness that took about 10 minutes to go away. My face looked a little brighter and felt nicely hydrated and my skin had a soft, smooth and bouncy kind of feel.

I enjoyed this one and won't have a problem using up the box I have!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Does sound wonderful @Shosh85! Was this a TJ Maxx/Marshalls find or somewhere else?
