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

J for Jeju Island volcanic clusters & overnight mask Glow Recipe Avocado Melt sleeping mask. A gift from the lovely @llmaster thanks lady!๐Ÿ˜˜ 

Both wash off masks

First Innisfree, the reviews say that this is a dupe for GG Supermud...๐Ÿค”...which I love. Maybe because they are both grey, mud & absorb oil/ help with blemishes. They dry down different. This is also smoother, creamer, doesn't have the tell all spots where your pores are. Innisfree you leave on for 10 min. I left it on longer probably about 20 or so. It doesnt get tight feeling really but at that point it did start cracking. The smell was ok..not mud but ashy but pleasant enough for me not to really take note of. GG & this I use a makeup eraser to remove. But while i have no issues with GG ever,. I did notice some redness almost itchiness from Innisfree on my cheeks- it may have been just from scrubbing but i don't get that from GG & anyone that has used GG know those leaves can get stuck! ๐Ÿคท my skin feels refreshed & deeply cleaned with GG but not really with this one. Sadly, I had high hopes for this, being from amore pacific but meh...๐Ÿ˜ i think I have at least 1 more use maybe half of a use out of the foil so may have to go head to head with GG for a mask duel this coming week. But i don't agree with the reviews that this is a dupe. Not for my face at least. ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค

Couldn't of picked a better mask to cool the redness from Innisfree than GR Avocado Melt. This is a thicker but creamy mask. I left it on overnight. This is not geared toward oily skin so I used sparingly but I liked it alot. Enough to see if i have a mini. It had maybe the faintest of scent of avocado but more green plant like maybe aloe...... I woke up to soft skin that had the balanced hydration that i was looking for but my skin lacked with DE F-balm. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š




Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee is this the innisfree Super Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Clay Mask 3.38 oz/ 100 mL? I got a deluxe sample in an order and am on use 2 with it. I wear it a while, more than 20 minutes and haven't had cracking so that's why I'm curious if it is the same. But everyone is different so who knows. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ Sorry it didn't work for you. The ingredients I'm curious about are corn starch, walnut shell powder, and methnoxypropanial (hopefully I'm spelling it right). Glad the avocado mask worked better!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes,that's it. it's not cracking into pieces that will fall off your face but around my mouth, I see cracks after it dries down & its been on there a while... I had it tonight & only left it on for about 15 min. too maybe I'm making my layer super thin๐Ÿคท @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks for confirming @sonnydee. I got big cracks with Kiehl's Since 1851 Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing 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 ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

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 ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿฅ‘

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 Innisfree๐Ÿคท 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 didnโ€™t agree with your skin. ๐Ÿ˜ž I like the Innisfree one but I wouldnโ€™t say itโ€™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 ๐Ÿค” (the pic)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  The GR sounds great! Happy to hear it could help soothe your redness! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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 ๐Ÿคทi felt it needed a better explanation.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Nice J, @sonnydee! The Glow Recipe sounds better than expected. Havenโ€™t tried that or the eye mask due to the retinol, but I read somewhere itโ€™s a very small amount...around 1%. Now youโ€™ve got me interested in it๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

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