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.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster it was exactly what my skin needed!

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˜‚

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”
