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’–

@eshoe Thank you! So far, just mostly have to figure out where my chest pain is coming from. 

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

@Samtian I wonder if it affected your electrolytes. My potassium was low for quite awhile and it gave me awful chest pains. Itโ€™s probably not the same thing, just something I thought about.

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

@eshoe My blood work came back ok. Thank you though!

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

@Samtian Love it! It may have been just okay, but at least you look super cute! The scent is probably my favorite part about this one ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿฏ

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

@Shosh85 Thank you! I wish I could have smelt it full strength. I have the phantom smells now, and all I smell 24/7 is smoke so I am happy with the .2 seconds of honey smell haha.

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

Is that 5 nights?? @Samtian you look adorbs!!

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

@lmaster Yep! And thank you!

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

Freddy Fazbear?! Blast from the past @Samtian! I didn't play it, but had friends who did. The design on this one is cute and I like that it smells like honey, but I agree with you - not good, not bad!

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

@itsfi Yep!! My brother and I did until he got married and moved out, boo, haha. 

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

@Samtian   These masks were a cute bundle of sugar coated disappointment. Theyโ€™re slightly better if you cut the ears and half an inch off each side ๐Ÿ˜‰  Why were they so big?  

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

@heartsmyface I was looking up info on the mask and no one except like influencers had a 5 star review haha everyone was let down. 

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

@Samtian   Wow.  5 stars is very generous!  I would give it 3 stars max for scent and cuteness and thatโ€™s only if i remembered to cut the ears off before getting the serum in my hair. 

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

@heartsmyface yeah 2-3 was the norm.

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

@Samtian  Ahhh itโ€™s so cute!!! I love the bear ears on it!!

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

@ather I think so too!

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

H is for Holika Holika and Hallyu....... and one of them smells Good Enough to Eat

Holika Holika Watermelon vs Hallyu Watermelon

 

Material:

Holika Holika: Thin, sort of meshy, cotton that had a light pink hue

 

Hallyu: What they refer to as a "jelly" mask - basically a thin hydrogel. It's a two piece and was transparent but with a pearly sheen. SUPER fragile. It seriously ripped all over the place just trying to place/adjust.

 

Serum:

Holika Holika: Clear, watery. A little extra in pouch.

 

Hallyu: Clear, watery. No extra.

 

Scent:

Holika Holika: Artificial watermelon - like a jolly rancher ๐Ÿ˜‹

 

Hallyu: Meh. A light, sort of plastic-y scent. I maay have got some very brief and very faint whiffs of watermelon - but it was really very faint and could mostly just smell that plastic-y scent

 

Fit:

Holika Holika: Tiny bit too wide and too long at the chin/jawline

 

Hallyu: Too short at the forehead and not wide enough by the ears

 

Wear Time:

Holika Holika: Half hour

 

Hallyu: 25 minutes

 

Tack:

Both had light tack, that stuck around for about 10 minutes

 

Results:

Holika Holika: Soft and smooth, lightly hydrated skin

 

Hallyu: Soft and smooth, lightly hydrated and plumped skin

 

Who wins?

I would have to say Holika Holika wins this round. It was just an overall more enjoyable experience.

 

Repurchase?

I wouldn't repurchase the Hallyu one but I might repurchase the Holika Holika one, just wouldn't go out of my way to do so.

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

I did like this one @Shosh85 they all can't be the best though

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

@Shosh85 did you ever try the Glow Recipe hydro gel? The scent on that was Jolly Rancher goodness, too! I will keep the Holika Holika in mind for a good scented mask. Hmmm, I guess there is the Aโ€™Pieu, as well. That one is yummy!

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

@eshoe  Yup, it definitely smelled very similar to the GR mask! The scent was probably the best part about this one! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‰

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

@Shosh85  ouhhh a mask off!!  
Oh I hate it when masks rip!  I know they work just as well with a tear or two but it drives me insane! 

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

@heartsmyface   The material felt nice, but it was pretty annoying that I couldn't even adjust it a smidge without it ripping on me. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
