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: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Does kelp have another name, or what is its scientific name? I had seen algae like way at the bottom haha but my eyes keep glazing over trying to look at it all. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Haha! I find myself glazing over the ingredient lists all the time. Google has been very helpful for me, lol ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes! But not all kinds @Shosh85 @Samtian As far as I have been able to pinpoint, it is usually kelp that causes my skin much unhappiness. I know that if the mask material is made of kelp or is an actual piece of kelp, it is a big "NO" unless of course, I'm going for that red-splotches-scattered-all-over-my-face look, which isn't a good look on me. ๐Ÿ˜† I think I've used some sheet masks with kelp in it before and it's been okay, but I tend to avoid it as an ingredient. I've actually learned more about seaweed than I ever thought I would, as a result of my reaction to kelp.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Nope, red and splotchy is not a good look for me either ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Didn't @eshoe say she had a bad reaction to the ingredient "chondrus crispus," (aka Irish Moss)?" ๐Ÿค”

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 it is possible, I have had an adverse reaction to blue spirulina.From my understanding itโ€™s possible to have one variety of kelp cause issues, while others may not๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I would use it again. Here's the ingredients, hopefully they aren't too small to read.


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @Samtian!  ๐Ÿค— I can read the ingredients. Will do a more careful read soon. Thanks again!! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  I've heard good things about this one! Glad to hear it turned out decent for you! The picture on the packaging always makes me think of popsicles for some reason ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Did someone say popsicles? @Shosh85 @Samtian ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahaha! Shoulda known that would get your attention @itsfi!  ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 haha I can see why.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Glad you can see it too ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge


โ€ƒI've used another 1 of these masks -it had different botanicals...but that one had Undesirable effects on my eyes. It may them sting so Ive been hesitant to use again but...did anyway. ๐Ÿ˜‘


Fit?not bad, usual extra in the chin. (I'm going to think of a cute name for that...make it more entertaining๐Ÿค”) i did end up ripping the above lip part in half, it was falling down into my mouth. 


Smell?faint tea tree. 


Consistency?thin, clear serum. Saturated enough that it did run into the corner of my eye from the mask ๐Ÿ˜ฌ but luckily no sting


Ease of use?no issues after I ripped away the lip part


Would I  purchase/try again? This was expired, but still smelled ok so I used it anyway. TT is good for blemishes which i currently have on my jaw line- & it seemed to help calm every thing. & soaked in without tack. I wonder if it was fresher would of it had stung like the other one? ๐Ÿค” but either way this one was a good calming mask. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š if I got it in my ipsy again. I would use it, sooner than later๐Ÿค— 

Mamonde lip sleeping mask in plum blossom. Smells good, good hydration but woke up with a lil itty bitty dream killer right by my lip. ๐Ÿ˜ณ so will use again to see if it caused or this sample will be finished off during the day. 


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™ve wanted to try that Mamonde @sonnydee  but didnโ€™t want to spend the $ unless it had a plummy scent. A dream killer, though? Did it cause peeling?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

No, no peeling just that lil pesky whitehead that is nonsense really. Ya know the kind that pops immediately & its done & over with. Usually happens when something was just a lil too much-oily, thicker serum- for my skin. Hence the name, dream killers ๐Ÿ˜‘ I used it again last night with no issues @eshoe it does have a scent to it. I looked it up: 

Plum blossoms are very fragrant with a scent described as spicy, sweet and flowery. The blossoms are entirely edible. 

I agree with this description, it's fruity but also tart think pomegranate. They have a pomegranate one that I'm pretty tempted to get even though I don't need anymore lip masks. ๐Ÿ˜ŠThey are not as thick as og bite but thicker than laneige

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yikes Iโ€™ve never heard that term but itโ€™s funny and I know exactly what you are talking about @sonnydee! It does sound like one I should try, when I finally use up my Bite and Laneige stash. The never-ending masks.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It's one I made up @eshoe that or dk. I want to think of a name for the extra part of the mask that is forever on the chin area. .....๐Ÿค” gotta think on it.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes Iโ€™d love to hear what you come up with @sonnydee ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Its weird but this character from monsters inc, comes to mind....๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ @eshoe so Roz?



Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ummmm, yes, @sonnydee ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Is that like a sample lip mask? @sonnydee
