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.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Challenge Theme: Masks that would make a good band name

Band Name: The Gastropods 🐌🐌🐌 (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! 💖


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Bahaahaaaa 🤣 @itsfi we are the gastropods!!! 🙌

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, we are @lmaster! Yes, we are! 😂🤣😂 🐌🐌🐌

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I’m actually surprised we haven’t heard of this band yet, @itsfi - love your take on the snail-inspired band name! What a fun theme @PrettyPaint suggested 🥰

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. 🤣 I'm sure the band will be topping the charts any day now...

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I’ll be waiting!


...any day now, any day now😄

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  "The Gastropods" is an excellent band name! Haha! I love it! 🐌

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm kinda partial to it myself, as well @Shosh85🐌🐌🐌 I suspect the band will have a bigger following in some countries over the other. 🤣 First tour stop, the Jeju Islands! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The Gastropods!!!  I love this one @itsfi !  I can be in this band?  I can't sing. And I can't play an instrument.  Maybe I could be a groupie?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I've always just assumed you were part of The Gastropods @missjeanie😍 I'm sure we can find you a musical instrument to play. A zipper can be a musical instrument, as can your hands. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  The Gastropods! I love it so much! Do you have a favorite snail sheet mask?


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

A favorite snail mask @PrettyPaint? I don't know if I have just one. 🐌 Ones I'm currently loving are:


Jin Jung Sung x CrediThink Snail Honey Jelly Mask@Shosh85 introduced me to this and I love it - snail + honey + jelly serum, yes please! I love that you can pick this up on amazon too!

JMsolution Active Pink Snail Brightening Mask Prime - this mask is a recent discovery and a new love; I picked it up a few at a local Asian beauty boutique pre-covid. It was more I went in a few times and somehow ended up picking up this mask each time. My mistake will come in handy. lol.

Etude House 0.2mm Therapy Air Mask - love how thin the material is and it's affordable

Leaders Snail Therapy Skin Clinic Mask 

TonyMoly has two lines with snail masks I like - one is the Master Lab line and the other is the Prestige Jeju line

Tosowoong, CosRxMissha and Naruko also have snail masks that I really like as well.

Yadah Collagen Mask (it's got snail in it)

Any of the snail sheet masks from the Elensilia Intracell brand have been good to my skin. 


Just typing this out makes me think I could do a month's worth of masking with a bunch of different snail masks if I wanted to. Hmmm.... 🤔


Do you have snail masks that you like?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Oh my goodness - this list is perfect. Thanks so much for listing all that out. I didn't mean to ask such a long question! 🙂  

I feel like I haven't tried as many snail masks as I would like, but they are so, so nice. I think the one I recall liking a lot is Missha's Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Hydro Gel Mask. I liked the yadah too. I'm seriously going to go through your list and try some of these, though. That CrediThink one sounds awesome - I think I'll add that to my next amazon order!!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Not a problem @PrettyPaint; happy to help. 🤗 It was a good opportunity for me to look at my masks and think about which snail ones I've been enjoying. 🐌 It also made me go through my skincare bin and I think I may be able to put together a routine centered on l'escargot! 🐌 I've never done a full routine with snail products (or having the majority of my routine be snail mucin based) but I think my skin would love it; thank you so much for inspiring that. 😍 


Oh, I forgot to add the It's Skin also makes a couple of snail mucin masks that I love; both are part of the brand's Prestige collection - one is a 2-step, with a sheet mask and undereye gel patches, and the other is a mask that contains snail mucin and ginseng. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The Gastropods is a great one! The Escar Go Go’s popped in my head after you saying that. Not nearly as good. @itsfi 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I like Escar Go Got too @Weetart !!  I picture a 60's throwback group in shiny pink dresses, big beehive hair and white go go boots.  Always wanted white go go boots....

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

"Always wanted white go go boots...."

Do it @missjeanie! 😆 It could be part of your fashion resolutions for 2021.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Bahahaha @itsfi I'm not too sure I could quite pull them off.... never know though... never know.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Weetart, The Escar Go Go's is an awesome name. 😍  Super fun! It's just as good if not better than The Gastropods. I actually like The Escar Go Go's more - it has more whimsy and pizzazz to it. 🐌

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Challenge Theme: Mask that would make a good band name

Band Name: The Beets (Get it? Beats ... Beets) 😂🤣😂



Farm Skin Brightening Superfood Salad for the Skin (Beet) is a soft, thin Tencel sheet mask saturated but not quite dripping in a sweet-leaning, subtly fruity scented essence having a traditional sheet mask consistency - slightly viscous liquid, aimed at brightening the complexion. As with most, if not all, Tencel sheet masks I've used, adherence is wonderful. As for fit, it was good, better than most sheet masks for my face size and shape but can be easily tailored to make it suitable for me - I just needed to take off some length along the chin and jawline and make some small incisions to the corners of the eyes. There's some essence remaining after an half hour of wear, but it absorbs quickly as I pat, pat, pat the extra into my skin to help with absorption. Once fully absorbed and the slightly-tacky-to-the-touch feeling dissipated, my skin felt soft, hydrated and a little brighter. The brightening is not an in-your-face blinding light but more of a clear, fresh-faced glow.

Thanks again for the fabulous theme @PrettyPaint! Got some veggies and masking in all at the same time! 😁  I have The Go-Go's We Got The Beat in my head now. 😆


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ok @itsfi did you ever watch the nickelodeon cartoon called Doug?? They literally had a band called the beets 😆
