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’–

Milky serums in sheet masks are life to dry skin in the winter @Shosh85๐Ÿ’– This one was nicely hydrating and that works too for this dehydrated-combo-leaning-dry gal. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The peachy scent didn't hurt either. ๐Ÿ‘

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

Definitely adding this one to my need to try, @itsfi. With the peach ceramides and how your skin looked/felt, it sounds lovely!

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

@eshoe, it's a nice one. I think your skin would like it better in the warmer months; it won't be moisturizing or hydrating enough on its own this time of the year.

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

@itsfi  Wow. This sounds amazing!!! Glad it worked well for you. Especially during these dry months!!

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

@ather, I has happy with this one - it has hydrating and moisturizing ingredients in it so it addresses both my dehydrated and dry skin. Oh yes, the first three months of the year are usually the pits for me when it comes to my skin being dry, sometimes December as well - it's easy for my skin to get really dry if I'm not super diligent with my skincare routine and water intake. 

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

@itsfi these results sound like a dream!! 

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

@lmaster, it was a nice mask pack; my skin really liked it. Iโ€™d love to see something similar but with a milky or cream essence. I know there are other peach ceramide sheet masks and ones in packs like this; Iโ€™m up for trying them! โ˜บ๏ธ

E is for Eve Lom

  • โ€ƒa generous gift from the sweet as pie @eshoe 
  • Out of all the "luxury" masks I've tried, this one is my favorite
  • I'd say it's a medium, flexible sheet drenched in a milky white, thickish serum
  • Extra in the sleeve
  • Scent was not noticeable to me, I would go with light powder fresh scent
  • Wear time was 25 minutes
  • Results, my skin loved this milky serum, it soaked in nicely. Fabulously moisturized, nicely hydrated and my skin had a nice glow.
  • I did notice once all the serum absorbed, the tackiness did last about 10 minutes. 
  • This would make an excellent morning prep mask

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

@lmaster  This one sounds wonderful, especially the milky serum! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Perfect for you!! @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜Š

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

@lmaster, the scent on Eve Lom products can be too much for me; this one sounds like it has a much lighter scent. 

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

@itsfi this one was very light, I bet you would like it 

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

Yay, so happy this one treated your skin well, @lmaster! I remember this brightening my skin as wellโ˜บ๏ธ Love your bullet point method, easy to read and succinct. I might need to copy that, as a matter of fact;)

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

@eshoe no offense to the luxury brands, but I've not had great luck with the few I've tried, but this one was great!! Thanks so much ๐Ÿค—

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

I think when you try one, you have higher expectations, @lmaster. And even then...when is a $50 sheet mask (like the Venofye @Shosh85 shared) going to be sustainable๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Just found this on their site, that wasnโ€™t even the most $$$ one! I think this works out to around $71/mask.

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

@eshoe  Yeah, I remember looking in their site for the first time and being shocked ๐Ÿ˜ณ 

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

I am curious about their sales volume, @Shosh85 @lmaster ๐Ÿค” I donโ€™t even know what could go into a mask to make it worth that much for me to pay for it!

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

Holy cow @eshoe 

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

@lmaster @Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Those kinds of masks always feel so luxurious!

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

This mask had it all for me @Kim888 I didn't purchase this one, but I did find a set of 4 for $55 through nordstrom, so about $14 a mask with taxes, not too bad for a luxury brand

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

I meant to use these green tea masks over the last couple of weeks but other masks kept sneaking in ahead. ๐Ÿ˜‰ So I decided to finally give these some love and start off this week with them, with E as the letter of the week and rinse off masks and peels - great theme @keana1! Gotta give some love to the wash off masks! โค๏ธ The Face Shop sheet mask is one that can be used for daily masking making it an โ€œEโ€mask - "365" = every day. The Body Shop mask fits both this week's themes, as it's a wash off scrub, or put another way, an E is for exfoliating.

Sheet Mask:
Spoiler
The thin cotton mask of The Face Shop Herb Day 365 Master Blending Face Mask - Aloe & Green Tea is soaked and dripping in a clear, watery, aloe-lotion scented essence. This mask is similar in fit and adherence to most sheet masks in that, for me, the holes for the mouth and eyes are too narrow and require some adjustments for a more tailored fit and the mask is overly large length-wise at the chin and width-wise at the temples. These are not deal breakers for me and can be easily overlooked given the results I get with this mask - after half an hour of wear, my skin looks and feels moisturized and nourished, with a healthy, fresh-faced glow to my complexion. This is one I'd consider repurchasing; well, I will consider it after I've gone through just a little more of my mask stash. ๐Ÿ˜‰
 
Wash Off Mask:
Spoiler

The Body Shop Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask is a grassy, herbaceous scented, creamy, whipped, mousse-like, pale green clay mask that turns more clear as the mask dries down. I applied the mask with a brush but the creaminess of the mask is such that it should be easy to spread and apply with fingertips as well. There's a cool, tingling sensation immediately upon application, which I suspect is due to the menthol in the mask. 

There are some bits in the mask that become more noticeable when as I massage the mask into my skin in circular motions while rinsing off the mask. In that sense, the mask is a like a 2-in-1 - a clay mask and scrub. The bits are not harsh but I do use a gentle touch because it seems like it could be easy to over-scrub with this mask. I made sure to use an even gentler touch on the areas of my face that are more sensitive and to avoid any areas where I might have an open wound or be suffering from an active breakout (i.e., my right jawline). 
 
Once the mask is all rinsed off, my skin feels softer and smoother and my complexion looked brighter too. This is a nice mask-and-scrub in one, but it's probably not one I would repurchase, though I would consider trying it out again in the warmer months. It seems more suited for someone with oily skin as well as those with who do not have sensitive skin.
