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

...and I donโ€™t have it, @Shosh85! I will have fun from the sidelines though ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Yay!..... I think Spirulina is algae? Which I think some would consider gross? I dunno, 'cause there's really not much that grosses me out anymore ๐Ÿ˜‚

The theme also includes "odd or unusual ingredients," so it would fit there too ๐Ÿ˜‰ @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

lol... it's so funny what some of us find gross and others find totally normal.  I think 5 years ago I would have been totally grossed out having snail slime on my face, now I'm all for it @Shosh85 !  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Haha! I know what you mean! I've always been a bit of a tomboy, but I think having two boys just made me even less sensitive to "gross" things. ๐ŸŒ

Fun fact: when I was 13 was dared to lick a banana slug.... and I did. That is not something I would ever do again ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฎ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ummmmm yuck @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜‚ I donโ€™t even know what a banana slug is, but Iโ€™m pretty sure Iโ€™d never brave a dare to lick one! @missjeanie @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe   Yeah, I did some stupid stuff when I was teenager. I only did it because it was a dare, and I was always super competitive. I still gag when I think about it ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah @Shosh85 I'm not going to comment what from nature I ate on a dare as a kid but glad to know I wasn't the only one who just had to do something and now looks back and thinks why?!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Well, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one! Haha! The slug unfortunately wasn't the worst/grossest thing I did.๐Ÿ˜ฌ I think I've learned from my mistakes though๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Ok now thatโ€™s gross lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie I know. I definitely regret it ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Fun! I have the Spirulina one! I've always wanted to try the Donkey one, but I've only ever been able to find 10 packs and I'm trying to stick to my "no 10-packs for masks I haven't tried yet" rule. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on it. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yay @Shosh85! Let me know if there is a particular day you want to do it

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  How 'bout Tuesday?

ETA: if there's a better day for @missjeanie, I'm flexible ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I'm in for a mask meetup again!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I thought I was smelling more of like maybe floral/fruity ish with a clean scent ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster Yeah, I did sort of struggle with how to describe this one - I definitely smelled something sweet! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I do have another one, so I'll have to another sniff test soon ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh, that's a better description of the scent @Shosh85. I smelled it again and got more sweet vibes. Now I'm curious about mangosteens too!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica I definitely like that the scent seems to very light with all these!
I'm pretty sure I've never actually tasted or smelled a Mangosteen, so I'm curious! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Buddied up for a couple more Superfood Salad for Skin masks

 

Next was Carrot sent to me from @faeriegirl - thank you!

Like Shosh's review from a little bit ago, was happy it did not have a carrot smell. To me it seemed typical sheet mask scent, maybe a touch of floral. It had the good same fit as the others I've used. I wore 30 minutes then on neck. I feel eh about pore purifying claims but seemed hydrating and still would say A- though Green Tea would be my preference.

And another from @Shosh85 - I appreciate being able to test a few of the options, Mangosteen

Being 100% honest, I don't know I can properly rate this mask. I was in a mood due to work and didn't pay very good attention. It rated well in the fit game just like the others in the line. I didn't notice a scent while wearing but package smelled floral-like. I wore it over 30 minutes but don't know exact time because I lost track. Despite that I also used on neck since it still seemed moist. After the serum absorbed, I didn't feel tack. I didn't really analyze face so I can't say anything about the results. And then I forgot to apply skincare after. I guess that says something good about the mask because my skin wasn't demanding additional products. So I can't rate it but my gut is that it's in line with the others but of the 3 this week, Green Tea would be my winner.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

LOL!!  @ShortErica I so feel this!  I often forget to look and see how my skin is after a mask.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Glad it is not just me @missjeanie ๐Ÿ˜‚ How is everything going for you?
