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

I liked this one @Shosh85 but there's some better jelly ones out there

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  I need to add this to my try list!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ather  Definitely a great one to try if you like jelly! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Jelly sheet masks are always the bomb @Shosh85 ! I wish I could say the same for jelly sleeping masks... as I have expressed repeatedly over reviews. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  I agree, I definitely love the jelly! Not sure if I've tried a jelly sleeping mask before - if you could remind me, what is it that you don't like about them?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ha ha I am laughing at your comments on the scent, @Shosh85! Sometimes I second guess myself when others describe a scent completely different from what I experienced.   Just an excuse to try it again, lol โ˜บ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Haha! Yeah, sometimes the scent can be tricky! I definitely feel like this one deserves another sniff test ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ahhhhh, a jelly essence sheet mask @Shosh85. A dream for those of us with dry or dehydrated skin! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Yup, absolutely! This one definitely felt great on my dry skin - the thick jelly is wonderful! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 now that you mention it, I got some pilling too but mostly on my neck. Weird about the scent difference but I feel like I'm smelling floral everything lately ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  I feel like I need to try this again, just to see if I smell something different. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I definitely loved the jelly serum! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Agreed @Shosh85! Jelly is awesome.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  That sounds quite nice. I don't think I've seen much Kina stuff around before.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  I've seen the sheet masks at TJ Maxx/Marshall's every once in a while, but just never pulled the plug. It turned out nice and I was happy to be able to try it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It's a shame about the pilling. I wonder if it'd would react better with some different products in your routine, @Shosh85.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Yep, that's definitely possible! I wouldn't mind trying it one more time, especially to test out the pilling and to sniff test again ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I keep meaning to post these....

I can't totally remember why I chose this one for this week's theme. I think perhaps because it was going to expire this month maybe?  The 23 years Cocoon Gold Silky Mask. It was pretty comfortable to wear and refreshing. I'm not really sure why it's called cocoon (I sure hope it's not an ingredient, but I couldn't read the ingredients on the back). From what I recall, it smelled a bit minty.



Here's a P mask: Pacifica Leave Pretty Anti-Puff Eye Patches. I think they actually did visibly depuff my eyes, but I actually couldn't wear them the whole time because my eyes started to feel slightly tingly/itchy. My eyes have been really sensitive lately, though. They were cute and my kids were amused (and kept asking why I had leaves on my face). 



Lastly, I have used this at least two times this week: Ole Henriksen Phat Glow Facial. I learned about it here, and I really like it. It leaves my skin feeling nice and smooth and has helped clear up some blemishes. 



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint, I know this is the mask thread but your nails!!!! So fun! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ–ค Those Pacifica under eye gels are cute; itโ€™s too bad that they caused some tingling. The OH cleared up some blemishes???!!! Very interesting .... Iโ€™m adding this one to my list of things to research. ๐Ÿ“ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  If you research it, let me know your opinion on the ingredients. It seems pretty gentle. I've been getting some blemishes on my chin (I assume it may be from wearing masks - for covid, not skincare). 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Iโ€™m glad the Ole is working for you. I definitely need to add to my try list! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks so much @ather. I didn't realize that it was quite so pricey - I think I actually got it in a boxycharm box I'm realizing.
