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

@itsfi I've liked the few Face Shop masks I've tried so far and this sounds like one I should add to my list. Glad you enjoyed it! C๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Iโ€™ve been happy with most of The Face Shop masks Iโ€™ve tried @Shosh85. I havenโ€™t seen this particular line on the market (though to be fair, Iโ€™ve been on a sheet mask no buy and not really going out to shop) - Iโ€™m not sure if that means these are not yet in wide release or if they are scarce because they are being discontinued. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ 

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

@itsfi very interesting mask from the body shop, I would definitely try this one out if I had a sample

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

@lmaster, I picked this one up in a sampler set at Ulta. The set also included their rose mask, honey mask and an Himalayan charcoal mask. The concept of the sampler set with foils of their mask is great but I donโ€™t think TBS sells a mask sampler set anymore, which is a shame. ๐Ÿ™ 

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

Hmmm @itsfi, I thought the same thing as @Kim888; wish it was something other than Clay. Seems to be an over abundance of that type of mask, but maybe it is the most highly sought ๐Ÿค” It sounded pretty unique up until that point! 

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

@eshoe, TBS mask is a clearing mask so including clay or mud makes sense in that regard. It would have been interesting though if it wasnโ€™t clay based, though for a clearing mask the alternative might mean that it would be a chemical exfoliant based mask of some sort. My skin leans dry now so I limit my use of clay or mud based masks. I imagine those with oiler skin feel the same way about super hydrating or ultra moisturizing sheet masks as we may about clay based masks. 

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

@itsfi the wash off mask sounds interesting - Iโ€™m always attracted to skincare that claims to deal with pollution. Disappointed to hear it was more like a clay mask 

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

Same here @Kim888! A lot of the anti-polluaging masks I've seen on the market are clay based. There are a small few that I've come across that are non-clay based masks. I need to look into the ingredients for those in more detail to see if there's anything in there my skin might not take kindly to. The Body Shop matcha mask was a good one; it did decongest but I'm not in need of more clay or mud masks at the moment. 

 

As for skincare aimed at pollution, have there been any brands/lines or specific products that have caught your attention? I was focused on working through my stash and finding a routine that worked for my maskne last year but now I can get back to a few items / brands I wanted to look into pre-covid. There seems to be a fair amount of serums that target pollution and my skin does love serums, so that should be fun to look into again.

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

@itsfi I've totally lusted after the Dr. strum and Dr. roebucks because they both have anti-pollution serums I find interesting but they are so price-y. 

 

The coola 360 sundrops say they help with blue light and pollution. I actually really liked the product, but found it went bad too quickly and I don't love the dropper as a dispensing tool. 

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

Completely with you on both Dr. Sturm and Dr. Roebuck's @Kim888! They are definitely pricey! Aurelia and Allies of Skin also have some skincare items that look interesting.

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

Going with the numbers theme again and using this Ariul 7 Days Mask ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Ariul 7 Days Aloe Sheet Mask

This is a thin cotton sheet mask that was saturated with a white milky serum. The scent was like a combination of fresh & clean and aloe, but fresh & clean is what was more apparent to me. The fit on this one reminds me of the fit on a typical Creme Shop mask - it was too wide, the space between the eyes was a little too wide and was too long at the chin/jawline. The adherence was good and it was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. After removing the mask there was some very light tackiness, that only lasted about 5 minutes. My face felt refreshed, soft and nicely moisturized. The little bit of redness I had was gone and my skin tone looked more even.

I enjoyed this one! The only negative thing I can say about it is the fit - which is never a deal breaker for me. I'd definitely repurchase!

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

@Shosh85  So glad you had good results. The packaging on this one looks familiar to me - I wonder if I have one somewhere that I got from facetory. If so, I'll be sure to have some scissors handy because I'm sure I would need to trim it.

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

@Shosh85 I agree, fit is usually not a deal breaker for me either, sounds great

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

Thanks, @lmaster!  Yeah, it's nice when it has a good fit, but having to make some adjustments is no big deal ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

@Shosh85 that is fantastic that this helped with alleviating some of the redness! Plus a milky serum, what a great bonus. I expected to find centella or ceramides in the ingredients, it must be the aloe that helped soothe๐Ÿค” 

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

@eshoe  Yup, most likely the aloe! It definitely felt super soothing and the milky serum made it even better! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Love this line, @Shosh85! I'm glad to hear this one was a winner for you!

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

@quspork  It really is a good solid line of masks! The milky serum on this one was such a nice surprise! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Ooouh, an aloe sheet mask you would repurchase @Shosh85? Noted! Those results sound great! โค๏ธ The fit on this one sounds like the fit of pretty much all sheet masks on me. I agree, fit isn't a deal breaker, especially since it can be made better with a few adjustments.

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

@itsfi  This one was so nice! I'm definitely a sucker for milky serum! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Donโ€™t blame you one bit @Shosh85! Love the sheet masks with the milky serums. โ™ฅ๏ธ
