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

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

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ummmm, yes, @sonnydee ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Is that like a sample lip mask? @sonnydee 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, it is 1 that's featured in the ulta mask must haves masking set. I hauled it fairly recently - this month, ๐Ÿค” looking for my pic....there it is! It has some new to me, some different...tula is in there. @lmaster

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee that's a cool set!!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee so glad this one didn't sting your eyes!  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Me too! ๐Ÿค— but it very well could be the scent & oils were diluted at this point. Still smelled ok, so I gave it a go! ๐Ÿ˜‰ @missjeanie I have 1 more that came in the set from ipsy. I have a bin that I started this month, placing the ones that need to be gone now & I'm trying to empty that before the new year. So I may not be able to go with the theme each week ๐Ÿคท but I'm killing my stash. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee the 'needs to go now' bin sounds like a good idea.  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Shouldve started it sooner @missjeanie

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Lol... @sonnydee  youโ€™re telling me! I feel like even attempting to get a ยดuse now, these are going to expire soonโ€™ may be a grand undertaking over here that Iโ€™m just not mentally prepared for lol! Youโ€™re a step ahead!  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh don't kid yourself @missjeanie the ones that are in my use now are already expired ๐Ÿ˜‚ they are upright, the ones that I want to use-fit the week theme, look interesting, etc. they are in there too but on their side. I'll take a pic when I can...๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee This just made my day!  I'm not afraid of an expired mask either lol

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

S is for Sephora + Spirulina Squared ๐Ÿ˜‰ 
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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 
 
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. โค๏ธ Huge thank you to @lmaster for recommending I try this spirulina sheet mask. ๐Ÿค—

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

โ€œyet again Iโ€™d forgotten I already had one.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ Ohhh @missjeanie, Iโ€™m laughing because I know completely what you mean. Itโ€™s gotten better recently for me - Iโ€™m sure the low / no mask helps ๐Ÿ˜, but there was a stretch where Iโ€™d discover multiples of certain sheet masks in my stash. So many times, too many times really, when I didnโ€™t realize I had purchased the same one(s) again and again ... and it was not because I had purchased a box of them. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜† 

 

Oooh, if you do use the masks, Iโ€™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. ๐Ÿ˜† 

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 ๐Ÿคฃ so hopefully it's a wash. ๐Ÿคž 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 ๐Ÿ™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 wouldnโ€™t have moved to pick it up and use it as soon as I did if it was not for your feedback on it. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
