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

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˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yep @Shosh85 I'm too much of a procrastinator for this mask ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, you always make masks look good! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ The results on this one sound wonderful! ๐Ÿ˜ I have a box (hmmm, probably more than one ๐Ÿ˜”) of these and have just been waiting for the day when I am, as you so aptly put it โ€œin the mood for the extra work thatโ€™s involved.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜ Iโ€™ll try to muster up my mood to get this one in before the end of the year. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I have some of these and quite enjoy them, but like you said... I need to be in the mood to put in the effort. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  I still have a couple more to get though as well, but it is so hard for me to get motivated for it! It's definitely more fun when you're doing it with someone ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

This sounds like it turned out nicely and was worth the extra effort, @Shosh85 but I'm like you, most of the time just give me a sheet I can slap on and call it a day. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Yup, most days I'm not patient enough for it, but I do love how my skin feels after! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 That looks awesome! But way too much work for me. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Yep, I totally know what you mean. It's not too often I'm in the mood for the extra work ๐Ÿ˜„

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I don't think I I posted this one yet for F week, though I used it early on in the week and am just going by memory. This brand was new to me, but it's the Beauugreen Firming Collagen Mask. I thought the fit was quite good, and I found it to be moisturizing. My skin also felt nice and smooth and possibly even a bit firmer to the touch. But...per the letter F, the fragrance was on the strong side for this one. If you are sensitive at all to fragrances, this one probably wouldn't be for you. There was a bit of a perfume-type scent that was somewhat noticeable the entire wear time.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint, the results from this mask sound good, but Iโ€™m not sure I could handle a perfume scent for the entire wear time, though. ๐Ÿค” 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi It didn't make me feel sick or anything, but I could do without ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Sounds like a nice one, @PrettyPaint!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  I always enjoy a mask that makes my skin feel smoother! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint love the packaging

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It is pretty cool! @lmaster 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  it's too bad about the fragrance, but at least you got some nice results out of it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  Yeah, it definitely wasn't unbearable, but it seemed to smell a bit too much like perfume.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Want to Unclutter some before the new year. And this lil ds (forgot to take a pic but it'll be in my empties)๐Ÿคฆ has been hanging around. Drunk Elephant Mini T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacialโ„ข AHA + BHA Mask 0.5 oz/ 15 mL  I've tried it before & I woke up the next morning to even more texture. Will update tomorrow if any negative results pop up but I plan on using Herbivore Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil - For Oily & Acne-Prone Skin 1.7 oz/ 50 mL #lapis tonight to hopefully counteract anything. Still won't buy, I'm perfectly happy withHerbivore Prism AHA + BHA Exfoliating Glow Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL & plan on trying out the mask. Will say if you have any "open" blemishes ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐ŸŒ‹ you will know. It burns! I thought i was far enough in the healing stage but guess not. It didn't last to long & I was able to keep the mask on for 20 min, used a cloth to wipe it off. I have others I feel do a better job at exfoliating, still pretty meh....๐Ÿ–ค for ease of spread. Dont care for the smell or taste, ๐Ÿคข if you accidentally get it your mouth or lip.
