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

They are really nice, @ather! Mine have little โ€˜handlesโ€™ which I guess helps the water inside remain cold. Makes them easy to handle, too. I love mine, canโ€™t thank @sprocketta enough for thinking of me:)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  That cucumber mask is really adorable. Love the packaging. That's too bad about the innisfree. I think I may actually have that laying around somewhere. I wonder what ingredient caused the blemishes?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, is your skin sensitive to silicones? That Innisfree masks seems to have quite a few silicones in it and I wonder if it's too much for your skin alone or in combination with the other mask or skincare products in your routine. @PrettyPaint 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi thatโ€™s an interesting observation ๐Ÿค” I use an SPF loaded with silicones (Dermstore Daily Mineral Sunscreen), but only on my forehead. Since the white bumps covered mostly cover my cheek area, that would make sense!


eta: also, a sleeping mask like this is likely to be on my skin longer than my spf, which might be the cause for the breakout - the silicones stopped up my pores for too long.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint Iโ€™m not sure yet, my skin isnโ€™t sensitive but I noticed all day today itโ€™s been redder than normal with a noticeable dark patch on one cheek. Hoping it goes away by morning, at least:)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Oh yikes. I'm just now catching up on posts, but I hope your skin is fully recovered now.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Much better, @PrettyPaint - spent the day in the pines and I think it was just what my skin needed:)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Totally thought that was gonna be a pickle mask @eshoe ! lol, glad it wasn't!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Hey I could go for a pickle mask, @missjeanie! If I end up with a mask maker, Iโ€™m going to try it just for the fun of it. In the meantime, I guess I could use pickle slices instead of cucumbers for soothing my lids?




Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I totally expect a pickle juice mask to the first one you test out!  lol I'm sure there's a study somewhere advocating for it... pretty much just vinegar and cucumbers no?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Add some pickling spices and youโ€™re set, @missjeanie! Somehow I donโ€™t think the scent would be soothing though;)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Oh, the rollers sound so refreshing! I bet it's even better in the summertime!


So sorry to hear your skin didn't like the Innisfree mask! That's never a fun a surprise! ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes the rollers can seem extra chilly right now, I am so excited to try them in the summer months @Shosh85! And another positive about the innisfree at least it was just a one/two use pod๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Challenge Theme: Masks that would make a good band name

Band Name: The Gastropods ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ (Ohhhh yeeeaaah!!! Had to get this one in!)

The Gastropods.jpg


The light floral scented gel in this Look At Me Best Friend (Snail + Green Tea) Face Mask imparts a lovely cooling sensation as thin Tencel material holding the serum rests softly and comfortably against my face and after some adjustments to the chin/jawline and corners of the eyes and mouth, the fit feels nice as well. Half an hour of wear results in some excess serum that absorbs fairly quickly as you press and pat it into the skin. It doesn't take too long for the slight tacky-to-the-touch feel that remains to fade away, leaving skin soft, smooth, slightly bouncy and nicely hydrated. Skin looks and feels revitalized as claimed. While I wouldn't say my skin felt taut, it did look and feel less puffy so I can see that the firming claims may have some support with more regular use, but not with one single use, and that's to be expected. This is a good snail mask and one I would use again, but not necessarily one I would seek out, though that has more to do with the fact that I have a nice supply of snail sheet masks that I like a lot.

I think this'll be my last entry for band names as far as masks go. This made for a lot of fun for the first half of the week @PrettyPaint! Thank you so much for suggesting it! ๐Ÿ’–


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Bahaahaaaa ๐Ÿคฃ @itsfi we are the gastropods!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, we are @lmaster! Yes, we are! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™m actually surprised we havenโ€™t heard of this band yet, @itsfi - love your take on the snail-inspired band name! What a fun theme @PrettyPaint suggested ๐Ÿฅฐ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Well @eshoe, if I were to hazard a guess, it's likely because The Gastropods move at a snail's pace. ๐Ÿคฃ I'm sure the band will be topping the charts any day now...

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Iโ€™ll be waiting!


...any day now, any day now๐Ÿ˜„

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  "The Gastropods" is an excellent band name! Haha! I love it! ๐ŸŒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm kinda partial to it myself, as well @Shosh85๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ I suspect the band will have a bigger following in some countries over the other. ๐Ÿคฃ First tour stop, the Jeju Islands!
