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

@itsfi  I think this is a nice line of masks, but I'd consider them more filler-type. If the scent was just a little better on them they'd be pretty perfect. I definitely loved the brightening effect from this one! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, the longer I mask, or the more masks I try, the category of filler masks expands. I think Iโ€™m getting pickier  more highly selective. ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi @heartsmyface  EXACTLY! These were some of the first masks I tried and I definitely feel like I liked them a lot more then. Now that I've tried close to 1,000 masks, its getting harder and harder to find ones that really impress me ๐Ÿ˜‚ YES! We sure are masking connoisseurs! Love that!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi @Shosh85   ^^THIS!!!  I was way easier to please in the beginning.  I notice I am also easier to please after taking a break from masking.   Weโ€™re just masking connoisseurs.  โ˜บ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

YES!!!! @heartsmyface @Shosh85 And now I have proof!!! Thank you, hearts!!! 

Masking connoisseurs. LOVE it! ๐Ÿ’–

Didnโ€™t think I would post this, so no fancy photo. Itโ€™s a three-peat for โ€œRโ€

Fell in love with the Beltune Real Eucalyptus Oil Mask the first time I tried it, I was sick and the Vicks scent was reassuring. The second time, seemed like everything was off. Last night, I used my last one as apparently it expires sometime this month. The scent wasnโ€™t as significant. The fit, perfect. Kept it on for at least 30 minutes before it started to dry. No remaining tack. I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve tried another mask from this brand and now I want to. Itโ€™s probably too late๐Ÿ˜„

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, sounds perfect for when you are sick @eshoe. I remembered to use my steam eye masks but forgot about the Kina I what to breathe better one that is eucalyptus - that would have been a good opportunity. I'll try to remember in case I'd see the brand to let you know.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™ve tried the Kina one, @ShortErica! I do think the fit on the Beltune is better for my face shape, but I would use the Kina again. The scent is just so soothing.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Why is it too late?? @eshoe did they stop making masks?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster it went OOS shortly after I repurchased a couple. Wish I would have bought more, but Iโ€™m sure another one will come along for me to ๐Ÿ’• 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It's always so nice to have a perfect fitting mask. I think I have one of these masks from a long ago Facetory subscription box so good to know about the scent and the expiration date @eshoe๐Ÿ˜ฌ I thought I used all of my sub masks up already but it looks like I'll have to get to using this one sooner rather than later. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thatโ€™s where I first discovered this one, @itsfi. I looked for it again just now and it seems to still be OOS. The set looked like it would have been wonderful to try!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  This definitely sounds like great mask to use if you have a cold! Why do you think it might be too late to find others from the line? I'd be interested in hearing how the others compare to this one. Glad you enjoyed it!

 Look at all those masks! I'm impressed you got it all in one picture!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 after I last purchased this, I went back to buy more and they were OOS. I just need to dig in a bit to find others from the brand/this line, which I havenโ€™t yet done. I think it would be worth the time, though!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

A eucalyptus mask does sound like it be good to have around for that inevitable cold, @eshoe - glad to hear it worked out nicely for you!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™ve been saving it in case I got a cold, @quspork. But with being away from people so much, itโ€™s hard to catch anything! Iโ€™ve been on the lookout for a similar mask since this one has been discontinued.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think I could actually get behind a vick's vapo sheet mask of some sort, @eshoe. I'm not sure how the ingredients would work out skin wise, but it seems like that would be so nice when you're laying on the couch with a stuffy nose and headache... ๐Ÿค”

โ€ƒugh I just wrote out my reviews and it just reloaded when i added the photos.  

nomakura hello kitty infrared eye patches- sticker type patches that claim to increase circulation and decrease puffiness by draining the sinuses.  There was a four minute delay before I felt a warming sensation.  I didnโ€™t notice any real depuffing but my under eyes feel moist and look plump.  Oh the instructions say to apply toner before sticking them on cause the stickers are strong.  I didnโ€™t do that and they still came off easily.  I wonโ€™t reuse them โ€˜up to six timesโ€™ like they say you can.  Iโ€™m too much of a germaphobe.

Etude house demask rose mask- sheer cotton mask dripping in thin heavily scented rose serum.   It confirmed well and was very cooling.  My skin feels happy and plumped up and a little tacky.

purederm shiny and soft foot peeling mask- smells heavily of alcohol.  The booties fit my feet well.  There isnโ€™t a whole lot of acidic serum like the babyfoot ones have but my feet still feel well coated.  It will take 7-10 days to see the final results so tbc.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface the eye patches sound really nice!! I don't believe I've ever used some that had a warming sensation

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@heartsmyface  I've been wanting to try out the Purederm foot peels - would love an update when the actions starts!

Glad you liked the Etude House mask! There are some pretty decent masks in this line. I think my most favorite so far is the snail one!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  weโ€™re two days in and my feet are dry and crinkly in the arches.  No peeling yet but theyโ€™ve got that sheen of chemical burned skin.  This is when it gets difficult to resist the urge to moisturize.   The wait continues. 

oh I love the snail one as well!
