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.

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?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica Not just you at all!  I found I was loosing some of the fun of masking at one point last year, I'm hoping I'm back on the right track again.  This year has been different for sure.  Lots going on, but at the same time not as much?  If that makes sense?  Laid off from my full time job at the college (Covid) but still doing hours at the brewery doing their finances so I'm keeping busy.  Trying to get lots done around the house, and keep busy with projects that I always wanted to do, but never had the time for.  Lots of mask sewing going on, with matching scrunchies obviously (for my nieces... and maybe me too).  

Hows the new house?  Do we love it?  How are the boys liking it?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie I'm sorry about the full time position but glad the brewery job is keeping you busy. My MIL made a bunch of masks. The ones for the boys are so petite and cute. That's adorable about the matching scrunchies! The new house is nice since I feel things are straightened out. We were very lucky and I'm grateful for how our timing worked. Boys love that they have bunk beds though they have to sleep on the bottom. I'm hoping when all this is done and they are older we can use them so they can have sleepovers with friends.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Awwwww @ShortErica my nieces have a bunk bed here and I remember trying to get one out of the top bunk to go to the washroom in the middle of the night... stick with the bottom bunk! lol  I'm glad you're all enjoying the new home!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica too many masks nowadays make it into that category. Masking for functionality rather than the experience has been increasingly common here. 

How is your stash? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe 155 sheet masks which feels good but I still want to get it lower so I can also focus on wash offs.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Great progress, @ShortErica! Iโ€™m down to 91, havenโ€™t been this low in awhile and Iโ€™m so proud of it:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe @ShortErica  Holy cow guys! You both are doing so great! I'm too afraid to count mine! ๐Ÿ˜‚ The last time (not sure how long ago) I counted I was at 678! ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ My mask buying has definitely slowed down a bunch, but I still have SO much. At least I have you two as my inspiration! ๐Ÿ˜‰

678 @Shosh85?!? Thatโ€™s....kind of a dream๐Ÿ˜‚ @ShortErica 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe @Shosh85 I would be okay with bringing my number up once I feel confident with how many I use and adding in far expiration date masks in. I do love that it is 6 7 8.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  Haha! That was the only reason I could remember it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe Haha! Well, I have given out a bunch, used a lot as well and purchased a little since then, so I am pretty curious where I'm at. I should definitely do another re-count! It's those darn 10 packs that kill me!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah I think thatโ€™s what happened to the Spirulina mask I thought I had, @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜‚ The 10-packs are tough, agreed! I visited TJ Maxx a couple of weeks ago and they had meager findings, I ended up not picking up any masks. Going to try again in another week or so, hoping for some treasures!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That's amazing @eshoe! You should be very proud. Hoping to get to double digits sometime too.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

My goal is to be at/around 30 by December 31st, @ShortErica. I realize that may take some double masking days, and I likely wonโ€™t get there, but if Iโ€™m even close, I will be happy! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Good luck @eshoe!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

You too, @ShortErica!
