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

@Weetart I just used one of the Neogen Milk Cream masks this week as well.  I had some flakiness and found that it was so nice to help with that.  I didn't notice the scent, but baby powder isn't one that I'm particularly adverse to. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

From last week, F for firming in the Manyo Bifida Ampoule Wrap mask

This is a seaweed gel mask that promotes skin barrier health and turned out quite nice. It's a 2 piece mask so lends itself to a nice fit. There was a ton of clear serum left in the package as well. It is quite scented but nothing offensive. It had an earthy scent with a hint of mint. I'm assuming that's all in the rosemary water, Irish moss water, and eucalyptus leaf oil coming through. While on, it felt very cooling, almost tingly- quite invigorating. It did seem to dry out quicker than I would have liked, less than 15 minutes in. After removal there wasn't too much tack left and while I didn't notice a visual difference in my skin, my skin did feel nice. I'd probably use this one again in the morning for a nice wake-up-the-skin mask. 

 

Then for Flash masks, the Patchology Flashmasque Illuminate

Well, I finally found a Patchology mask that I would not repurchase. I usually love their masks, but this one just wasn't kind to my face. It's a cotton sheet with a super cute lace design on it. But that's really where the positives end. The scent, ugh, the scent. It smelled like acetone. It was quite off-putting. The fit was 100% terrible- far too long and narrow. If you're insanely skinny with a Tyra Banks 5-head though, you may have better luck in that arena. While my skin did feel a little softer and smoother after removal, there was no brightness as one would expect with an "illuminating" mask and I did have bit of redness. That went away after a couple hours, but still, not ideal. They can't all be winners!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhhh the scent acetone 😣 yikes sorry about that one!! @quspork 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork, I’m intrigued by the Man:yo mask; I’ve heard good things about their skincare in general. The Patchology mask though is a pass for me, but I loved reading your review. 😍 I think Tyra Banks’ forehead has me beat on being extra, and it cannot be said that I’m insanely skinny so this one doesn’t seem like it would be a good fit. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I've heard good things about the ampoule that the Manyo mask is based on, @itsfi, but I haven't tried too much from their brand yet. A lot of it looks nice though! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  Haha! Your "Tyra Banks 5-head" comment cracked me up! 😂 The scent alone would keep me from trying this one!😬 Sorry to hear it was unimpressive! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I used to watch a lot of America's Next Top Model, @Shosh85 - that phrase is etched in my memory 😂

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Love the two piece masks @quspork , but you're right, they can't all be loves, at least now you know that that Patchology mask is a pass. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

So true, @missjeanie - at least it frees up future purchasing for better masks!

F is for Frost! Nabbed this sucker from the motm. Like I saw and and grabbed it as if I was fighting over who would get it first. I have a soft spot for anything Sanrio and so many of cremes Hello Kitty masks are enjoyable. This was very relaxing, I used the eye flaps, my eyes are like WAY strained from staring at the computer all day. And come on, look how adorable Hello Kitty is being Santa. 😍 it did sting on two spots that had sensitive skin. So I wiped the serum off and put little cotton pad buffers on those little spots. Smelled refreshing and worked awesome after I made my little cotton blockers. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart, very nice call on the cotton blockers! 👍🏼 There were a lot of good masks in The Creme Shop x Hello Kitty collaboration and this one was one I really enjoyed! Happy to hear it’s one you liked as well. 😃

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Super cute mask @Weetart !

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  Awww I love Sanrio too. Super cute.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

So cute, @Weetart! Glad you were able to find a workaround for the sensitive areas. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart these are so cute!! I wonder if they will have more holiday masks this year 🤔

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  Love the packaging on these! Glad to hear the cotton blockers helped make it a more enjoyable experience! 😃

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

So cute, @Weetart!

F is for Fresh, Firming, and Fruity. Surprise, surprise an SNP mask that is awesome? Love the sloppy jelly serum. The scent is... I don’t know, its nice but i can’t pick out the strawberry, coconut, watermelon, or persimmon. But maybe that is how they sorta smell all together. It’s a light scent. Super plumping. Says 10-20 minutes. I left it on closer to 30 and smoothed the rest over all the tattoos. Pretty sure this came from motm. Thanks whoever put it in the bag! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart  Ooh, this one sounds great! Makes me even more excited to try mine! 😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

The scent sounds phenomenal!! @Weetart 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

light and fruity scent... sounds wonderful @Weetart , the jelly masks are always a bit of a treat!
