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

I used kale in a vegetable soup and enjoyed it @missjeanie but don't think I've had it any other way. I need to use the rest of the bag. How have you had it? I doubt I would like it raw. Anyway, glad the kale mask was a winner!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica I've had it in salads and as 'chips'.  Neither impressed me.  I'm going to chalk it up to just not being my thing.  We can't like it all right?  That said, I'd try another mask or skincare with the ingredient. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie laughing because I LOVE kale, however in mask form, it never fails to disappoint ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Well @eshoe  I've tried to love it, I really have, but I just can't get there.  I love salads, I grow lettuces all summer, but I just can't do it with kale.  I did do my unscientific experiment and have determined that my skincare makeup combo just works well for me.  I'm back to hating on kale since it wasn't my skincare dream ingredient lol

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Haha. I absolutely love kale. Especially the curly kind - I'll eat a whole salad of it. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint do you have a secret recipe?  I swear I want to like it, I know it's good for me... but dang it I just can't get there... chips, salads, smoothies I'm maybe just not a kale gal?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  It must just be a tastebud thing. That being said, I find fresh kale from the farmerโ€™s market to be so much better than what is found in the grocery store. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Hmmm..... I'll be interested to hear if you get the same results from repeating the skin care/foundation combo! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  I tried the same thing today without using a mask of any kind this morning (ya girl hit snooze one too many times).  It turns out I can keep hating on kale.... the volition strawberry serum, mushroom serum, milk moisturizer and sheseido sunscreen with the Nars sheer glow, Dior concealer and MUFE powder were apparently the right combo I've been looking for.  Dang it really is wearing well today too.  I'm going to see how long I can keep it on for tonight and return the kale chips from my online grocery cart back to the virtual shelves. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Oooh, that does sound like a nice combination - though, I was really hoping the Kale was a contributing factor! Haha!๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Salmon egg extract for gross week ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŸ




Foreverskin Salmon Pore Care Mask

This is a medium thickness black cotton sheet mask that was drenched with a super sudsy serum. It had a pleasant scent that smelled mostly sweet/fruity to me, but there may have been just a hint of floral. It had a great fit, just a tad too long at the chin. It adhered well and the soft stretchy cotton was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. I pressed in leftover serum that was just very slightly tacky but it all absorbed in less than 10 minutes. My face looked a smidge brighter, and my skin felt hydrated and soft and smooth.

I might not be the best person to put the pore claims to test, since that's not really a problem area for me, but I did love the results I got! This is the second Salmon mask from the line that I've tried so far, and they were both great, though I do think I liked the whitening version a bit more.

The long ingredient list:



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hmm..sounds great @Shosh85 but it's good to know you liked the whitening version more.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@ShortErica  There are still two others from the line I need to try, but I'm pretty positive I'll be repurchasing the whitening one ๐Ÿ˜ƒ



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I'm legit intrigued.  I've never heard of a salmon mask before.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@CookieGirl1  I was intrigued by it too! It seems like the weirdest and most unique ingredients give the best results! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I'm not sure why since it's salmon egg, but I picture pieces of smoked salmon laid out on your face lol.  I used a mask with salmon roe in it as well yesterday and I would't mind trying out more so I was glad to hear that you like this one! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Haha! Right?! That's exactly how I pictured it too! ..... I'm pretty adventurous, but I don't think I'd go that far! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Glad to hear you had a good experience with the ingredient as well! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™m even more interested in this unique ingredient now that I know it is @Shosh85-approved! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿค” I may also look at certain sushi items differently now. ๐Ÿฑ ๐Ÿ˜† I am pretty sure I picked up a mask with this ingredient earlier in the year because I was a little curious; may have to sneak that one in the queue for this year now. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  When I first got into the masking game, I would've never thought of putting that ingredient on my face..... but here we are ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'd definitely love to try more from the line and just more with that ingredient in general, because so far I'm loving it!

Also, speaking of sushi, this is what their eye patches look like๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahahaha @Shosh85! Those eye patches are hilarious! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I must have them. ๐Ÿ˜ Iโ€™m going to start a new list - masks worth breaking your โ€œmask no buyโ€ - and these are going on that list! Theyโ€™re just too funny, and kinda cute. Iโ€™m also going to give myself an one-time (but just one) pass from now through the end of the year to break my sheet mask no-buy. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I'll definitely be buying more of those eye patches! Not only are they cute, but they work great too!

.... and yay! for more sheet mask buying! I love looking at people's sheet mask hauls and I'll definitely be curious to see what you pick up! Not that I need any more, but I feel a mask haul coming too - now that I'm buying more singles and less packs, it won't add up as quickly ๐Ÿ˜‰
