Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @quspork. It’s definitely not an ingredient I have seen in masks before! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint @Oh I think I have this one too and I’ve been thinking it looks weird haha - glad to hear it works well and had no strong scent !

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Kim888  I was a little hesitant at first too, but it’s really pretty normal once you apply it. πŸ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hmmmmm this is a new one, @PrettyPaint and I have to agree, thank goodness it wasn’t authentically scented! Going to have to seek this one out, the brand is generally a good fit and even better results πŸ‘πŸΌ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  It was a much nicer experience than is probably depicted on the packaging. There is also a kombucha one in this line! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I think both of them are going on my to-do list, @PrettyPaint. 2021 isn’t too far away, and I would like to go into it a little prepared. Always need a few unusual masks on hand:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Yeah, I can't say the packaging is too attractive, but it definitely sounds like it turned out great! .... and I'm happy it didn't smell like fermented cabbage πŸ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Yup - I like to eat it, but I don't think I'd want it all over my face (especially in the morning)!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint, this mask sounds amazing!!! πŸ˜ I love kimchi! πŸ’– Interestingly, I'm having kimchi for an afternoon snack right now!!! Nom, nom, nom πŸ˜‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Oh yum! That looks really good - and super good for you too!

S is for Sephora + Spirulina Squared πŸ˜‰ 
I was going to make a spirulina bowl to include in my pic, but it's just too cold for that, so it'll just be these Sephora Collection spirulina masks.I was going to make a spirulina bowl to include in my pic, but it's just too cold for that, so it'll just be these Sephora Collection spirulina masks.

I'm not certain but I thought I heard / read that the Sephora Collection Mask Stick - Spirulina (Purifying) has been or will be discontinued, which is unfortunate, on the one hand, because they came in handy for travel. Since travel isn't in my line of sight for the near future, not that big of a deal, but I'll be interested to see whether a similar version of these mask sticks will be part of the Sephora clean line in the future. Of the masks sticks in this collection, this is one of the ones I'm partial to. The scrubby granules scattered throughout this cornflower blue tinted mask never seem to transfer onto my skin, but their exfoliating effects are nonetheless gently felt as the stick glides across the face, imparting a very pleasant cooling sensation along the way. 5 minutes is all that is called for but I often lose track of time, which if I leave it on for too much longer than 10 minutes can cause the parts of my face that lean more dry to feel slightly tight. As a result, I typically just apply this mask to the oilier parts of my face and after rinsing off, follow up with a hydrating sheet mask, like the Sephora Collection Clean Face Mask - Spirulina, which claims to be good for hydration and anti-pollution. I'm not convinced that one use will tell how well of an anti-polluaging mask this is, but it feels good, smells pleasant (of what I cannot seem to pinpoint) and hydrates my skin beautifully. Fit-wise, adjustments are needed to the corners of the eyes and mouth and to the length at the chin and jawline. Surprisingly, this mask covered my entire forehead with a little extra material to spare! This is a rarity; and my forehead welcomes it. πŸ˜‰ 
 
The recommended 5-minute wear time on this sheet mask makes it a nice one for a quick masking sesh, but it seems like a hefty price tag for a just 5 minutes. There's plenty of essence in this mask to last a good 20 minutes on my dehydrated-combo-but-leaning-dry skin, and you could probably have it on longer without fear of it drying out. I left it on for about 20 minutes and was rewarded a fresh-faced glow that comes from hydrated, bouncy, happy skin. This Spirulina varietal, along with the lychee and green tea versions make up my favorite 3 sheet masks from this new clean line. I'll eventually try the other sheet masks from this range that I haven't yet gotten around to, but in the meantime, I'd be happy to repurchase those three mask over and over again. ❀️ Huge thank you to @lmaster for recommending I try this spirulina sheet mask. πŸ€—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhhh... I didn't at first glance think I had any quickie masks but I have both of these ones.  I might need to do a copy cat masking @itsfi !  I actually think I bought the SC stick mask twice at your suggestion (yet again I'd forgotten I already had one).  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

β€œyet again I’d forgotten I already had one.” πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Ohhh @missjeanie, I’m laughing because I know completely what you mean. It’s gotten better recently for me - I’m sure the low / no mask helps 😝, but there was a stretch where I’d discover multiples of certain sheet masks in my stash. So many times, too many times really, when I didn’t realize I had purchased the same one(s) again and again ... and it was not because I had purchased a box of them. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜† 

 

Oooh, if you do use the masks, I’d love to hear your thoughts on them. No pressure though; I know there are a lot of masks to get through. So many masks, so little time; and just one face. πŸ˜† 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I just did it earlier yesterday!  I had a MAC eyeliner in my cart ready to go... I already own it.  I've come close on several occasions the last couple of years lol... I'm trying to wait until sales to make purchases and force myself to look through my collection before ordering for a bit.  Hopefully it'll keep too many doubles down.   I think this mask set will be done tomorrow!  I'll tag you for sure. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie, completely understand! For most of this year, I've tried to limit my purchases to ones that I could do with gift cards, rewards points, etc. even if it was on my list of things I planned for. That's worked mainly for a few stores. I've managed to spend less on certain products as a result of some low / no buys during the year, but then again, I've probably spent more on things in certain other categories 🀣 so hopefully it's a wash. πŸ€ž Shopping my stash, project pan, etc. have helped with whittling down what I have. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi so so happy to see it's a favorite!! I personally love both of these Spirulina masks πŸ™Œ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

These spirulina masks are great @lmaster! Thank you again for sharing your like of the spirulina version of the sheet mask. I wouldn’t have moved to pick it up and use it as soon as I did if it was not for your feedback on it. πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

It'll be interesting to see if the stick masks get a new "clean" version in the upcoming months, @itsfi. Glad to hear the spirulina sheet mask performed well! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Agree @quspork! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ I’m very interested to see what if anything else will be introduced as part of the Sephora β€œclean” line, skincare and makeup wise. Not sure if there are plans to bring back these mask sticks. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I’ve heard / read mixed reviews on them; which isn’t necessarily uncommon for any product, but these didn’t seem to have as much traction as I thought they might. 

@TeamBIC, any word (that you can share) on whether these mask sticks will be reformulated and made part of the new β€œclean” line? 
@Shosh85 @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi the stick mask sounds similar to the exfoliating balms by Sephora as well. It sounds like a very pretty mask; the Crayola Cornflower crayon is such a soothing hue,  and it was the first thing I thought of when you mentioned the shade:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Good ol’ Crayola crayons @eshoe. πŸ– The primer for most of us when it comes to all the different color variations out there.
