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.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

lol! Your husband's reminder cracks me up @Shosh85! How well timed of him! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ Maybe the $18 you saved on the mask could go towards a lip balm?! Hahahaha! ๐Ÿ˜…

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi thanks for reviewing this! I guess we can say it's not vegan ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Yeah @lmaster, the carmine and the honey extract in this mask means itโ€™s not vegan friendly.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I'm fine with honey, but carmine is very interesting. @itsfi I'm not vegan by any means, however, not a huge fan of that one ๐Ÿคท

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Thanks for posting @itsfi !! I was super curious about this. It sounds great and I like that it goes around the ears but isnโ€™t too tight. $18 a mask is totally a hard pill to swallow though 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I hear ya @Kim888! I almost passed on it but my curiosity got the better of me. It's a nice mask that's for sure. No irritants, no stickiness, wears comfortably, and it lives up to most of its claims, but I think the $18 sticker keeps it from being something I'd recommend but for a pampering session or a before a special event, and even then, I think you're better off picking it up during a sale unless you're really interested in giving it a try. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

C is for Cicative Calcium




A'pieu Cicative Calcium Sheet Mask



Thin and sort of gauzy cotton




Floral. Not too strong, but would've preferred it to be lighter.


Great fit - just a little too long at the chin.

Wear Time:

Half hour




Soft, slightly bouncy, moisturized and hydrated skin with a nice glow


I loved the results and would definitely use again, but due to the scent I'm not so sure I'd repurchase



C is for Consonant and Charcoal. Picked this one out of Masks on the Move ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ




Consonant Skincare Hydrextreme Charcoal Sheet Mask

This is a medium thickness black charcoal sheet mask that was saturated with serum, but there wasn't any extra. It had a light citrusy scent, that may have been leaning slightly toward a kitchen cleaner kind of smell, but it wasn't offensive or off-putting at all. The fit was pretty good - just a smidge too long at the chin/jawline and a teensy bit too wide. The adherence was good and was comfortable to wear the 25 minutes I had it on. There was some light tack but it only stuck around about 10 minutes. My skin felt soft, hydrated and lightly moisturized and my face looked a little brighter and had a nice glow.


Most charcoal masks leave my skin feeling dry, but this one surprised me. Not only was my skin moisturized and hydrated, but the hydration seemed to last for quite sometime. This was my first product from the brand and after this I'll definitely have to explore more!




Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I'm glad to see your review of the A'pieu mask, @Shosh85. I love most of their masks, but haven't tried that line yet. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@quspork  I've really enjoyed all the A'pieu masks I've tried! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ  This is probably my least favorite mask by the brand, but that's mostly due to the scent. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I'm sorry the scent was too strong for you! Been there!! @Shosh85 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster  Well, I've definitely smelled worse, it just doesn't make me want to repurchase ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Darn those scents @Shosh85! ๐Ÿ˜  I do like a pleasant scent but would gladly take unscented or just a light, non-offensive fresh and clean scent if it means a sheet mask is more suitable for everyone. Sorry the scent on the Aโ€™Pieu was a miss for you. ๐Ÿ˜ž I wish Consonant was more readily available in the US. I really like the hydrating serum from the brand and stocked up before Costco stopped carrying it. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  I would love if Consonant was more available here, because this mask was wonderful! Glad you could grab the serum - definitely an awesome find! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

From last week, B is for Bombee which might also work for a band name@PrettyPaint!


Sheet Mask:

Material, Essence, Adherence,  Fit:
The very light purple-hued, slightly viscous, sweetened honey scented essence subtly drips off the soft, thin Hanji material of the Papa Recipe Bombee Pore Ampoule Honey Mask Pack. Hanji is Korean traditional handmade paper, made from the inner bark of mulberry trees and is pH neutral. This material is wonderful. Though the mask is saturated in the essence, it doesn't feel heavy, not when removed from the packet and not when worn. On the contrary, it feels soft, adheres beautifully, and wears comfortable against the skin. Fit is very good for my face size and shape - like most sheet masks, it is too wide at the temples and I do need to make adjustments to the outer corner of the mouth hole and the inner corner of the eyes. The length at the forehead and chin/jawline are very nice. 
Claims, Performance & Results:
20-30 minutes of wear time is recommended, and while I went with my standard 30, I'm fairly certain I could have easily tacked on an additional 15-20 minutes without concern for the mask drying out. This particular varietal in the Papa Recipe Bombee Honey line claims to exfoliate and moisturize the skin and I'd say it does a pretty good job of meeting those claims. There's also mention of sebum control but I can't speak to that particular claim as the oiliest parts of my face were in better shape than usual the day I used this Papa Recipe mask (of course, that would be the case when I have a mask aimed at helping with oil production!) My skin felt (and looked) smooth, refreshed, nourished, soft and bouncy, and my complexion had a healthy, fresh-faced glow to it. It's been about an hour since my skin has fully absorbed the essence and my skin doesn't feel dry in the least bit; rather, it feels both hydrated and lightly moisturized. Another keeper from the Papa Recipe Bombee Honey range. ๐Ÿ’œ

Lip Balm

Frudia Blueberry Hydrating Honey Lip Balm ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฏ isn't just all about the packaging, cute though it may be. The balm itself feels moisturizing on the lips, is emollient without being greasy or heavy, and it smells wonderful ~ I pick up sweet blueberry and honey. ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฏ The balm claims to have some exfoliating properties as well but I haven't really noticed (or paid attention to) those claims; will look into that more. I saw that Frudia also makes a blueberry honey sleeping mask, so needless to say that's on my list now as well. ๐Ÿ˜‚


Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi Ooh that lip mask!!!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Samtian, the packaging on the lip balm is really fun! Love that the balm itself is a nice and moisturizing, too! ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฏ Thereโ€™s a pomegranate honey version too. Iโ€™m *trying* not to pick up too many lip balms so I may pass on the other version for the time being. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi Haha I know how that is! I have a lot I need to go through first.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

lol @Samtian! From now until Easter, I'm planning on working my way through my collection of candles as well as my partially used hand cream, scrubs, body butters/lotion and shower gels. I've already pulled out new, unopen, unexpired items that I will donate or gift. I was able to get my skincare products to a manageable amount (well, we're not counting deluxe samples or travel / mini sizes - lol!), so we're moving on to bath and body products. ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I hope you post them in the pan it group!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Iโ€™ll try to remember @Samtian to do that. Itโ€™s sometimes a feat to remember to keep them for the empties thread. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Maybe Iโ€™ll rethink my set up of them to make it easier. ๐Ÿค” 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi The Frudia lip balm sounds yummy! The company definitely has the best esthetics for their products! ๐Ÿ˜ I saw that Frudia sleeping mask a while ago and have been so tempted to buy it ever since! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
