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’–

@faeriegirl  What a perfect honey grouping. I have all of these and love them. That's so funny that you mentioned the biobelle almost expiring, because I just realized I have several of these that are about to expire as well. I had them in my 2021 box and hadn't looked through it until recently. 

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

We were masking twins with the Farmacy:) @faeriegirl 

 

That Briogeo mask is really good, and the fact that they brought it back for the holidays give me hope it may become a permanent fixture ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ

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

@faeriegirl I have a travel size of the Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask that I've only used once and there's at least a few uses left in it; I'd nearly forgotten about it so now that I've seen your post I'll have to "shop my stash" and dig mine out ๐Ÿฏ.

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

@faeriegirl  Oooh, one of my most favorite themes/ingredient! I love everything you used here...... absolutely agree they should bring the Briogeo Bear back permanently! ๐Ÿฏ

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

Yes to honey themed masking @faeriegirl! ๐Ÿ˜ Love all your choices here and I 100% agree with making the Briogeo honey hair mask permanent. I was happy to see they brought it back during the holidays but making it part of their collection year round would be even better! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿฏ

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

The mask I will be using this week will be the Aloe Vera from Sephora. These ones are the most hydrating ones.

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

Great choice, @Sabah55! Have you tried any of the eye masks? The caffeine one is especially niceโ˜บ๏ธ

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

Yea I use the caffeine one from Inkey. I use the eye one.

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

@Sabah55  Always a good idea to have Aloe masks on-hand! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

@Sabah55 love aloe! 

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

@Sabah55, aloe is so refreshing and a wonderful hydrator! ๐Ÿ˜

E for eggplant ๐Ÿ†

Wash Off Mask:

Spoiler
Papa Recipe Eggplant Clearing Mud Cream Mask is an unscented, purple hued kaolin clay mask containing walnut shell powder for a gentle physical exfoliation and several soothing and hydrating ingredients to keep skin from drying out. Itโ€™s one Iโ€™ve used before, last fall. I liked it then and I like it now. ๐Ÿ’œ

What I Like:So many things to like about this mask:
  • Unscented
  • Gentle exfoliation
  • Doesnโ€™t harden or dry down
  • Cleanses without stripping skin of natural oils; no irritation, no tightness
  • Baby soft, smooth, clear, brightened skin
  • Easy to apply and wash off
  • Fun purple color
 
Area(s) for Improvement:

None, as far as I'm concerned.
Overall Thoughts:I purchased a set of 10 of these capsules and have quite a few more left. These capsules sure come in handy for travel but that's won't likely be in the cards for me for quite some time (and that's fine). After I've gone through these capsules, I'll likely pick up a full-size tube of this one. I like the gentle but effective exfoliation it provides and can see it being put to good use as an aid for clearing out my nose and the oilier, clogged areas around my nose.
 

Sheet Mask:

Spoiler
The cotton fiber material of the XOY Eggplant Mask is soft and thin to make it feel beautifully comfortable against the skin but is also sturdy enough to hold in the clear, slightly viscous and unscented essence it is saturated in without any of it dripping.
 
What I Like:
  • soft, thin-ish sheet wears comfortably against the skin
  • results were great - my skin looked and felt refreshed and hydrated
  • ingredients list is pretty good
Area(s) for Improvement:Not readily accessible
Overall ThoughtsThis is a good mask, but I'm not so enamored with it to consider it a "must have" mask. It's certainly a sheet mask I would happily use again and one I would repurchase as well, but it's not one I'd necessarily rush out to repurchase.

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

I'm intrigued by the Papa Recipe eggplant wash off mask, @itsfi!! It sounds amazing. I've been using some of the Papa Recipe eggplant skincare and it's been hit and miss, so I'm not sure how similar it would be.

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

@haleyvvvv, the PR eggplant mask is super gentle. I can see it being too gentle for some folks. Which of the products in the eggplant line did you enjoy most? Iโ€™ve tried their honey propolis ampoule and thought it was good. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

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

@itsfi I really likes the cleanser, lol, but the cream, emulsion and clearing skin were a bit too drying (and I didn't even layer them, I used them one at a time) and they didn't really clear my skin. I used the non cream items on my partner for spot treating and they were okay. I have Tea Tree products, to try for clearing, but I am also a weary to try. The honey products look lovely though. 

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

@haleyvvvv, so sorry to hear they were so drying. Ugh! ๐Ÿ˜– Thatโ€™s always a challenge with clearing products. Lately, my main go toโ€™s for clearing products have been the Peach & Lily Reboot Resurfacing Mask and the Origins Clear Improvementโ„ข Charcoal Honey Mask to Purify and Nourish 2.5 oz/ 75 mL. I use the Origins one on areas where I tend to be more dry; the honey helps. The Peach & Lily is good for decongesting clogged pores; it can be drying so I tend to concentrate it on the oilier parts of my face.

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

It is!! That's why I really like the Farmacy BHA toner for maintenance pore decongesting and the Sunday Riley UFO oil for spot treatment, both work well on my dry skin.

I'll have to try out the Honey and Charcoal mask, @itsfi !! I like the regular charcoal mask and my partner uses it, but I like the Boscia one better. Maybe I'll pick him up the Honey Charcoal one and try it that way, lol.

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

@haleyvvvv, I rotate Sunday Riley Saturn mask for spot treatment. Hadnโ€™t thought to use the oil that way; making a note to give it a try. That entire range has been good for breakouts.

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

@itsfi  Hmm, I'm pretty sure I haven't used an eggplant mask before ๐Ÿค”  I have seen that Papa Recipe one and wondered about it, so it's good to know it's one you enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ†

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

@Shosh85, itโ€™s a super gentle exfoliator. Sometimes I like something stronger but my skin has been very sensitive and finicky this winter so this one works nicely. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Gotta baby the skin. ๐Ÿ˜† Iโ€™ve been impressed with Papa Recipe - the sheet masks are wonderful and what Iโ€™ve tried of the other skincare products have been good. 

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

@itsfi great choice for E week, happy to see it was a good sheet for you
