Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oooohh, thanks for the shopping intel @missjeanie! That's good information. I told myself I could hit 'pause' on my 'sheet mask no buy' once before the end of the year, but I'm wondering whether I should just hold off and wait for after the New Year, as I don't need more sheet masks. As that really hasn't stopped me in the past, we shall see ... 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I used my tretinoin last night I got my butt going quickly this morning so that I'd have time for a mask to try and stave off any flakeyness.  The quest for my version of perfect skin continues!


First mask of my morning was the Tony Moly Pureness 100 collagen mask.  I find I'm more successful with my masking if I pull out a small collection to choose from for the week at the beginning of the week.  I have no idea why I pulled this one (I usually try to pull within the theme).  Was Pureness 100 a band name in my mind?  Anyhow, for some reason I was hoping that this would have a grape scent.  It doesn't.  I'm 73% sure that I was only hoping or it because there's purple on the mask.  The fabric on this one looked a bit 'dirty' since the cotton wasn't bleached, but that makes no difference to me.  It actually fit nicely around my face, where some masks around the temple can cover a bit of my hair (I'll just fold them if they do), this one was good to go.  It did pop up at the chin a touch, but nothing that was bothersome.  My skin did feel nice after this mask, but I didn't see it being life changing.  I had no flakes this morning when I woke up, so this was harder to see a difference than some others I've been doing of late.  I'm happy to use up more of these, I think I have two more?  I can't ever buy a mask as a one... always gotta get at least two just in case I love it. I can't say I'd rush to buy more of these, I'd rather try something new.  But I also can't say that this was a fail.  It was just a good mask.  Make up did look lovely after this, but I always use different bases these days so who knows if it was the mask or not.
Evening mask was the Hectic 10pm mask.  I know I thought Hectic could be a cool band name.  Frankly, so could "10:00pm".  In a fun twist, I actually did this mask at 10pm.  There is a scent to the first step, but I can't place it.  It's fresh, and maybe a touch fruity, but I can't tell what kind of fruit.  Scent wasn't strong and went away as soon as I had it on my face.  The microfibre material here is nice, but just not as nice as the Too Cool For School that I used the other day.  The chin did pop up after about 10 minutes, instructions that I found online said to wear step 1 for 5-10 minutes so I took that as my cue to remove the mask.  This mask comes with a step 2, two glacier water pads that you're meant to wipe your face with.  Does this step remove step 1? Neutralize it?  Instructions I found online were vague at best, probably should have looked a bit harder than the first screen of google results.  I did feel a bit of a reaction when using them, I don't want to say a burn, but there was a warmth.  There is a bit of tackiness left on my skin as I use some eye patches now (trying to use up a jar that is meh).  The tackiness however isn't enough that it wouldn't go away with moisturizer, which I plan to slather on tonight.


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh my goodness @missjeanie I guess we think alike, you are just a few steps ahead of me ☺️ Hectic would make a great band name! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  I did look at the 7am one... I just knew I couldn't do it at 7am and still make my morning on time lol

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It was more like 7pm for me, @missjeanie 😂

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Love that you used the 10:00 p.m. mask at ... 10:00 p.m. @missjeanie! Something just so poetic about that! I'm digging 10:00 p.m. and Hectic for band names.


"I can't ever buy a mask as a one... always gotta get at least two just in case I love it." That's a really good and sound approach, missjeanie. Well, more sound than picking up a box of masks at the outset. Wait 😮, who would do that?! Hahaha! 🤣 I've lucked out with the various boxes of 10 masks I've picked up, but I will aim to be better at managing my mask library this coming year. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh @itsfi  I assure you there are a lot of 10 packs I pick up too.  I'd actually be super happy if 5 was a more popular pack number.  Lets just say it's been a mask learning experience the last few years.  I feel like 2 is way more appropriate than 10... but dang if I happen upon a 10... sooooo basically I can't ever just buy one. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahaha @missjeanie! I find that when I buy just one mask, it ends up that I pick up a lot of different masks. For next year, I’m giving myself limits on how many masks I can have “in stock” at any one time. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  haha! I love that you were hoping for a grape scent because of the purple! Grapes were the first thing that came to mind when I saw the package too 😉

The Hectic mask sounds nice!... and I totally agree, it would make a cool band name!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I had to check myself for a second when I realized I was disappointed in the lack of scent @Shosh85 .... I mean... can I really be disappointed when it was apparently just my mind that thought there should be grapes in there?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie oh wow a two step hectic mask,, sounds interesting, I wouldn't mind a warming sensation right about now 😆

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Preach @lmaster !

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

W for Winter Masking:


The Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask is a winter must-have for my skin. There are a couple of masks that while I’m wearing them, just feel like they are locking in hydration. This is one of them, and one I hope to always have for wintertime. 

The PAT McGRATH LABS Lip Fetish Balm Tin (🤗 @SportyGirly125 ) is quickly becoming a must-have. Wearing it yet again tonight. It is similar to the Laneige with a bit more slip💓💓💓

Finally, I could hardly wait to try out one of the new masks from my incredible Secret Santa, @tjffc. The Crème Shop Gudetama Fusion Essence Mask has both vitamin C (which my skin loves) and AHA’s, which...still kind of intimidate me! Which is why I was careful to pack it in between a superior hydrating wash-off and an ultra-rich moisturizer (Bloom Effects Royal Tulip Nectar). 

It is printed and of course, in the most perfect way.

It began to tingle slightly after a few minutes; nothing crazy but enough to make me think. Ah, AHA! I debated removing it but instead left it on for about 20 minutes. The scent was typical sheet mask, fit was typical CS (no eye flaps, whew!). After removing I did find a slight tinge of red to my cheeks, but knew there was nothing to be concerned about as chemical exfoliants like AHA’s can do that.

I slathered on on a thick layer of moisturizer and followed it up when I woke around 2 with Origins Mini Drink Up™ Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask with Avocado & Swiss Glacier Water 1 oz/ 3... . My skin was well-hydrated and brighter than usual this morning, a win for the skin!


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Hard to go wrong with Gudetama @eshoe.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

For a smile, @itsfi, nope! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Awe, I love the "cheek-on-cheek" illustration! Gudetama's bare bum always cracks me up! 😂 So happy to hear it turned out nice for you!

Love the Farmacy and Origins masks! Definitely both winners for me as well! 😃

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Gudetama always makes me crack a smile, @Shosh85 😉 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Good way to use those sequins @eshoe 😉😍

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes, finally@sonnydee! I’ve had them in a little box just waiting for their moment to shine 😂

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

This mask sounds too perfect!! @eshoe 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It was definitely fun, @lmaster! The chin flapped around quite a bit, but I’ve had worse:)
