Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’— Post as frequently or infrequently as you would like, with or without following the challenge. We love hearing about every masking experience, and suggestions are always welcome. 


This Weekโ€™s Theme: โ€œFavorite Mask in Your Regular Routineโ€ - the lovely @itsfi would like to know - which mask do you buy in bulk, to always have on hand?

Mask of the Week Misc. Info & Previous Year's Links:


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

@quspork Thank you, thankfully it did!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Man, it seems like you have the worst luck with masks! Do you have sensitive skin? ๐Ÿค” Glad this one was at least ok for you. I feel like all the Hello Kitty masks are just ok. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป 
Have you tried any sheet masks you like?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Haha I have been having not the best of luck lately. Oh I've had masks I love. My skin isn't usually so sensitive until the last few months. Tea smelling things always smell good so that made me sad.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Tonightโ€™s masking with Volcanic and Vita:


The innisfree Volcanic Cluster Pack has been on my to-do list for a while now. It is a chalky grey, shiny clay that applies smoothly and seamlessly. No scent that was obvious or worthy of noting.

After leaving it on for nearly 45 minutes, it still had not dried, nor was it tight. After rinsing, my skin felt smooth and refreshed, highly unusual for a clay mask. I can see why this one is a favorite, it will be a repeat for me for one!

The Orjena Moisture Essential Vita Mask showcases โ€˜Cellulose Maskโ€™ at the bottom, which I hadnโ€™t noticed when purchasing. I was pretty elated and opened to inspect it closer. It did not appear to be a biocell mask, although the material conformed similarly well to my skin. It also felt close to one, although definitely not on par with the strict adherence of one. As with the innisfree, I did not detect a scent. It fit well on my face, and I left it on a good 30 minutes before removing. No remaining tack, plumped skin - this was a lovely mask and one I would repurchase in a heartbeat! I have a couple of others from the brand which I am now very excited to try.



Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Is this the same mask as innisfree Super Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Clay Mask ? @eshoe 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes. @lmaster, just the baby version ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The Innisfree mask is a nice one @eshoe. Good to hear it worked well for you. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I am (very) late to the game with that one, @itsfi, but happy to have tried it. I believe I have seen it in a pump, so I hope to try that after finishing my Pacifica Charcoal mask.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I felt the need to keep repeating to myself... "I don't need more masks right now" while reading your review lol.  What a great set to put together though!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It must be the new thing in masks, @missjeanie. I am using another one tonight that acts like a hybrid. Feels great but the fit is so awful๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The Innisfree volcanic mask sounds so nice, @eshoe. I love seeing clay masks that don't overly dry the skin. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Me too, @quspork. They are few and far between. I tend to forget I am wearing a wash-off unless it becomes uncomfortable. I prefer to wear a mask that way so itโ€™s an added bonus:)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Happy to hear you enjoyed both of these! I have wanted to try that Innisfree mask for awhile now, because of all the positive reviews - it definitely sounds great!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Itโ€™s one of the better truly clay masks Iโ€™ve used, @Shosh85. Zero drying down was exceptional for me. I think there are a couple (at least two?) versions of this mask, need to research but I would like to try the other one as well.


I did intend to check my pores for any actual โ€˜actionโ€™  i.e. clearing but was sidetracked with the sheet mask texture. I have another use in the pack I received and will make a mental note to report on that as well.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

And tonights 

G for Glamglow ๐Ÿ˜ & to hopefully remove some Gross Goo from my nose

Glamglow is a love & a HG. I love it, it works for me. 

The other set...๐Ÿ˜‘ I had high hopes for it,would use again if I got it for free..maybe. But in its defense, my blackheads on my nose are small & stubborn. It came with a mask & a chin piece. You remove before it dries, I think I had it on my nose for about 20 min & it was still pretty wet. It doesn't stick,it just lays there. And the chin part does move. It's not uncomfortable but I didnt see anything I needed to swab away with the stick. So no for repurchase. It doesnt irritate your skin though so ๐Ÿ–ค



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sorry it was a dud!! @sonnydee 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee, too bad the nose strip didnโ€™t work out. I find that the Biore ones are the best for my nose, in general and the original is still tops. Gotta love the GlamGlow SuperMud! A tried and true favorite! โ™ฅ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee   Well it's too bad the blackhead strips didn't work out so well, but at least you can always count on SuperMud! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yup, I multi masked at the same time that night. @Shosh85 Supermud was on my jaw line - & the strips were in my nose & chin. The kids looked at me weird that night๐Ÿค—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Your getting gross goo off your nose cracked me up, @sonnydee. At least you didnโ€™t have a bad reaction from these!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

True @eshoe really no reaction except for a shiny nose today.
