Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @lmaster๐Ÿ˜ I feel like that Kiehl's avocado ๐Ÿฅ‘ mask had such potential, but the formula just makes it an avocaDON'T. โ˜น๏ธ Such a bummer.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Mmmmmm...avocado. That looks like a delicious one. Whenever I purchase some, there's about a 1/3 chance that it will be a decent one, sadly. That garnier mask is a great one. I tried it out thanks to this board. ๐Ÿ™‚ I never thought to use it as a leave in conditioner. My hair may be a bit too thin, but I think I'll give it a try. Gives me an excuse to repurchase! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint, grrr, thatโ€™s such a let down when an avocado order is so hit or miss. ๐Ÿฅ‘ The individual strands of my hair are very thin; I just have a lot of hair (though I feel like I have much less than I did before ๐Ÿ˜Œ). Iโ€™ve learned over the years (and the hard way, of course) that itโ€™s best for me to care for the thinness, regardless how much of it I have.  When I use the mask as a leave-in, I take a very small amount and  work it through from the middle to the ends and then as the very last step, Iโ€™ll use whatever is left of the product thatโ€™s on my hands and run it quickly and lightly through the top, just to give it some conditioning but making sure to do what I can to keep it from being too heavy and making it flat.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  That sounds pretty similar to my hair. Hairdressers usually say my hair is fine/thin but there's a lot of it. Thanks for the tips - I'll definitely give that a try. My ends are dry and straggly, so they could use some conditioning for sure. I wish I was a person with good hair skills, but I am most certainly not. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint, "good hair skills" is not something I can take claim too; to say I have "skills" would be a stretch. ๐Ÿ˜ I pat myself on the back for the "extra effort" if I do anything to my hair in addition to using shampoo and conditioner. Hahaha! I feel so fancy on days when I use a hair mask. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  What a great theme! ....All of a sudden I have craving for avocados. Haha! That toast looks delicious! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿฅ‘ 

Happy to hear you're enjoying the Garnier mask line! That papaya one is definitely a favorite, and so is this line, especially for the price. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I love avocados @Shosh85๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿฅ‘ My skin was happy with ending the week with a bunch of avocaDO masks. ๐Ÿคฃ Oh yes, 100% agree, I think the papaya mask is the best one of the Garnier Fructis line and you just can't beat the price! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Love the AvocaDO theme here.  @itsfi mmmmmmmm

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @missjeanie! ๐Ÿค— Weโ€™ll blame my craving for avocado toast ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿž on Friday for enabling the avocaDO ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿฅ‘ masking sessions this weekend! ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I was watching a 5-minute crafts beauty hacks video this morning and I saw this ๐Ÿ˜ณ




DIY fruit and veggie mask maker?!?! I know what is going on my Christmas wish list ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe That is interesting. The mask looks like cat food. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian technically, you are correct.



Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe The kittens eat pate style food so that is immediately what I thought of haha. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Omg. Soooo cool!!! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It looks fun @ather, and I finally found a simple mask mold without the machine (which...whatever is that for, idk) for around $12. Looking forward to playing around with it, sounds like an experiment for the little ones, too๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Wow, now that's interesting, @eshoe. It looks more effort than I'm willing to put in lol, but I'd be so curious to hear reviews on how it actually works out from anyone who does decide to pick one up. I can only imagine how easy it would be to create a mask that could irritating to skin though. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I think there is potential there, @quspork, but  I am wondering just how much of a chemist you need to be to make something worthwhile. I does it stick together, and could I just use it to make jello masks? (Actually it appears there are lots of recipes for gelatin peel-off masks, so who knows๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ).


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Whaaaaaa? I have not see it. @eshoe So intrigued. Does it have reusable or plain sheets that the fruit goes onto in the tray? 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I havenโ€™t looked into it further, @Weetart but I will update if itโ€™s anything worth delving into. Iโ€™m not completely sold on it yet!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  That is so cool. I never have seen such a thing. I'm definitely curious what the fit would be like from the mold. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

In the back of my mind, I am thinking disaster @PrettyPaint- but it might be lots of fun, too!
