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

@Danielle103  Awww, that's too bad about the smell. I would have hoped it had a nice coconut scent. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Danielle103 I wasn't too fond of the scent either

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

A couple catch up posts from this week.... guys... Iโ€™m falling off my two a days.  I need to really start upping my masking game in December lol.

The Neogen was a much needed mask this week. I woke up with flaky skin (Iโ€™m on a tretinoin journey and my impatience shows up in flakes). I put the mask on and right away my face felt soothed. The milky serum wasnโ€™t oily but it did feel silky on my hand while applying. I didnโ€™t note the scent which to me means that it wasnโ€™t amazing, nor was it offensive. I had the mask on for about 30 minutes when I just had to take it off to eat. Food first right? Well I took the mask off carefully and did some snacking I folded the mask and used it as a sort of wipe around my chin area (the worst of the flakes were here). I usually toss masks right away but it felt so nice to keep massaging this on my skin and there was still plenty of serum left on the mask. Afterwards my skin did feel super tacky. This is probably the most tack Iโ€™ve ever noticed on a mask, but I topped off with a moisturizer and it was gone. Iโ€™m super happy to have more of these because I know myself... Iโ€™m going to go hard again with prescription and need them. 

The Victoria secret coco calm mask was an amazing fit. I frankly didnโ€™t have super high hopes for a mask from a lingerie company, but the fit was so perfect. The serum on the mask was okay, no coconut scent like Iโ€™d hoped, which I know... I should appreciate no fragrance, but I enjoy tropical beach scents. I was a bit nervous since coconut oil had made me break out in the past but Iโ€™m starting to think I might be okay with a wee bit of coconut extract. Not a theory I want to delve heavily into, there are enough other great ingredients for moisture that I donโ€™t need to worry about this one not being for me.  Would I re purchase? No, it wasnโ€™t a knock out, and Iโ€™ll avoid coconut if I notice it, so itโ€™s not for me, but I certainly wasnโ€™t mad at the mask and will try more from the brand if I find myself in a store and theyโ€™re there.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

That Neogen milk cream mask checks off so many boxes @missjeanie! ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I feel like Iโ€™m going to enjoy them all winter @itsfi ! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  I liked that Neogen mask too! Milky masks sure are great soothers! Glad you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Sorry the VS mask was unimpressive - I'm pretty sure I've felt that way about all the VS masks I've tried. I'm happy this one turned out decent for you. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The milky really was perfect for what I needed @Shosh85 .  I feel like my general consensus on VS masks are that they're okay and all... but nothing amazing, the fit did standout as excellent... but otherwise...meh. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  I've tried that neogen before, and I think I remember really liking it too. A nice winter mask!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Exactly @PrettyPaint , its great for winter.  I could see it being too much for a lot of people in the warmer months. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie ohhhhh the milk mask sounds fabulous!!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster it was exactly what my skin needed!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

V is for Venofye. Mask twinning with the beautiful @lmaster ๐Ÿ˜Š

Venofye Royal Honey Sheet Mask

This is a thin cotton sheet mask that was drenched with serum and had a lovely scent of sweet honey & almond. The mask fit great - just a bit too long at the chin. The adherence was good and it was comfortable to wear. I kept it on for about a half hour. When I removed it I rinsed my face with water as directed. (I didn't realize it was a a rinse off the first time I tried it.)  My face looked a smidge brighter, my skin felt comfortably hydrated and was super soft & smooth. 


I really enjoyed this one and I'm sad this was my last one. ๐Ÿ˜ข I'd definitely repurchase these if I found them at Ross again, but I'm 100% positive I wouldn't repurchase them at their retail price of $50 per mask ๐Ÿ˜ณ It was a great mask, but not that great!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, I remember when you shared about finding this mask! What a find, too! ๐Ÿ˜ The โ€œsweet almond and honeyโ€ scent you describe sounds decadent and adds to the luxe-ness of this mask. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Definitely a nice find! Went back several times to find more, but no luck. ๐Ÿ˜ข I loved the combo of almond oil and honey ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I would say it is a luxe mask @Shosh85 but I'm thinking more like 7-10$ range that's pricey to me ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster  Yeah, it's nice, just not $50 nice! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Almond and honey? Yum! I was about to do a search for them, but I definitely couldn't do $50 for a mask...haha. So cool that you were able to find them at ross.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  Yup, definitely a yummy scent and nice results, but would never pay $50 for it! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Whoa @Shosh85 !  Sounds like a lovely mask... but 50$ a mask is waaaayyyy more than I'd be willing to shell out too.  At that price it would need to buy me dinner first or make me look like I was 20 again lol

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Bahaha! Right!? For 50 bucks I'd definitely expect it to do A LOT more! I've bought $2 masks that had pretty much the same results. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Still a great mask though and I'd snap it up in a heartbeat if I saw it that cheap again!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

E is for Erno Laszlo (forgot to take a picture, so I borrowed one from the internet ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Erno Laszlo Firm & Lift Firmarine Lift Face Mask

This mask comes with two packets - one with liquid and the other with powder. It had a sort of minty scent that I think smelled very similar to the mouthwash I use. I dumped both packets into a bowl and stirred until thoroughly mixed. It turned into a very messy and goopy consistency, which made it challenging to spread evenly on my face, and was constantly trying to droop off. It took less than 10 minutes for it to set up and had a nice, light cooling sensation while it was on that felt pretty refreshing. I was able to remove it in one piece and there were only a few little bits from the edges of the mask that were left behind, but was easy to clean up just rubbing my finger on it a bit. My face looked brighter, felt so soft and smooth and had some bounciness to it. My skin did feel just a tiny bit on the dry side, but for me it's to be expected with these kind of masks.

This has great results and is a fun one to do if you're in the mood for the extra work that's involved. ๐Ÿ˜‰I'd definitely use again but probably not repurchase, especially for full price, just because slapping a sheet mask on is much easier ๐Ÿ˜‚
