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

@itsfi  Hahaha! For the longest time all you could get was chocolate and vanilla.
I like to get fancy sometimes and swirl the chocolate with the banana  ๐Ÿซ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ˜‹ @missjeanie 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 @itsfi I think I'd try any of those.  There's a chocolate mint ice cream I can get from my store around the holidays that I enjoy, so I think the peppermint could be okay.  But I'm not an egg nog fan at the best of times.  And really... isn't all ice cream kinda egg nog flavoured?  Ice cream is cream and yolks at it's core.  

Also... not everything needs to become pumpkin spiced.  I say as I'm looking at voluspa pumpkin candles.... I'm such a hypocrite. lol

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  The whole pumpkin spice thing really does get blown up over the holidays - like they have everything in that flavor. I'm not a fan of the taste of pumpkin, but I typically LOVE the scent and smelling it usually makes me wish I liked the taste ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜† @itsfi 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 @missjeanie I love the smell of pumpkin spice! Iโ€™ve only had two pumpkin spice items this year but have gone through several pumpkin scented candles and am happy with that. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

You're not a hypocrite @missjeanie@Shosh85 I totally agree, not everything needs to be pumpkin spiced. Voluspa, on the other hand, needs to have pumpkin spice in its candle collection. Completely different in my mind, missjeanie! ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes @Shosh85. I forgot about egg nog ice cream. I'm not a fan.  Also not a fan of pistachio ice cream either. Yeah mushroom. Not good. Not good at all. ๐Ÿ˜’ It's a blessing that you didn't know that flavor existed. Trust me. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahaha @missjeanie! I'll try to do two-a-days this month. We'll see how well I stick to it; on the one hand, my skin can usually handle two masks per day, including 2 hydrating sheet masks, in the cooler months. I'm hoping that having that goal will help to keep me on a good routine so that I keep up with my skin care with all the year end things that can make it easy for things like skincare to get neglected, at least for me. 

 

That's an excellent approach to two-a-day masking, @missjeanie! It's practical and flexible, allowing for adjustments based on what your skin needs. The missjeanie's system is a good one! ๐Ÿ’— Year-end can be a challenge for me at times to stick to a good skincare routine, including masking, but hopefully this works out. If it does, my skin will be happy and I'll have worked through a good number of masks which will make me happy. Win-win!

 

I didn't make the connection to an oatmeal cup with the Farmskin mask until it was mentioned here. Lol. I have a couple of those oatmeal cups in the house and at my desk at work for times when I'm hungry and need food but it's clear now that I don't reach for it often. ๐Ÿ˜† The mix it mask did pretty well; it will be interesting to see how the other "flavors" perform. I'll keep you posted. Ha! Yes, the Dr. Jart creepy baby face mask! You're very welcome for the shove. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Glad I could help. lol.

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The mix-it mask looks so fun, @itsfi! The packaging reminds me of the Trader Joeโ€™s Oatmeal breakfasts:) 

 

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, the packaging for the mix it! mask was pretty well thought out, though the spatula is a bit large for applying the mask all over. Probably between the size of TJ oatmeal cups and TJ yogurt cups. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

for Clarify

forgot to snap a pic last night so screen shot will have to do๐Ÿ˜Š

 

Fit? Good amount of roz but it so saturated & thin you can squish it to fit better 

 

Smell?peppermint. So much i even checked, yup its there -in the middle. But I don't mind it especially around this time of year

 

Consistency?serum was clear, thinnish almost gel like. I didn't have a drippey mess

 

Ease of use? No "normal" issues. I found out you can drink with this on๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜›

 

Would I  purchase/try again? I liked this mask. It

had a nice cooling effect. It left a lil tack but some moisturizer fixed that. I think I would appreciate it more in the summer/ early fall months but it is a solid mask. ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  This is a nice line of masks! Glad to hear this one worked out great for you! Have you tried any of the others? 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Without looking at my notes, I think I've tried firm, a popsicle & a ice cream & liked them all. But I think I may have been disappointed with a scent maybe -the icecream? ๐Ÿค” @Shosh85 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Yeah, I was disappointed about the scent on the Ice Cream ones too - the packaging really gets you excited for something good! ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I like this line of masks @sonnydee I've been in need of clarifying lately ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Bahahah @sonnydee "found out you can drink with this on"... but did you need a straw? I'm also now wishing I had picked up some peppermint syrup for my coffees.  Hmmm, how fast is prime shipping this week?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Sorry @missjeanie was missing a 'not' in that. ๐Ÿ˜ฃNow that you mention it....maybe I need to pick up more straws so I can drink no matter what.๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee I support a straw purchase!  I never used to use straws, but bought a couple metal ones this year and now I use them constantly.  Super bonus that I can drink while masking... hot or cold beverages.  Beer through a straw is weird I warn you though. lol

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Peach & Lily is having a sample sale tomorrow online, I believe @sonnydee. I wish my CVS sold these online, they are only available in-store here ๐Ÿ™„

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Will have to check out the sale @eshoe I liked the moisturizer that I've tried enough to stash away a ds..๐Ÿค” I think it was the matcha pudding one. I have other minis, but have to go with the slow & steady action when trying out new skin products ๐Ÿ˜’insert eye roll๐Ÿ˜’

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I hear ya, @sonnydee! boo for sensitive/finicky skin.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I remember liking this one too @sonnydee! ๐Ÿ˜ It's probably better suited for my skin in the late spring thru early fall months. There are a few of these sheet masks that I continue to repurchase; I do wish Target still sold them; perhaps Ulta will now since it carries certain skincare products from Peach Slices.
