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’–

No, @itsfi, I did not. I am on a no-buy for the first half of the year. I thought I would challenge myself after failing miserably last year. But itโ€™s something I may pick up,lunar some point, after noting othersโ€™ thoughts here!

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

@eshoe, youโ€™re almost one-third of the way there. You can do it.

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

Thank you, @itsfi. So far, so good. My list is going strong for July/August, though!

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

@itsfi  Hmmmm, I bet we can get them through White Rabbit Express if theyโ€™re available in Japan. we just need to find a store that carries them. 

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

@heartsmyface, I'll send you screen shots of what the other mask liners look like and any brand info I can find. I remember one being available in Singapore; will check for ones from Japanese brands. 4 more sleeps until my February no buy is over and these Skin Inc. liners are one of the first things on my list to pick up. It'll be with notes/reward points so I'll feel even better about it. ๐Ÿ˜ 

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

@itsfi  Is this them?  I wasnโ€™t expecting them to be synthetic. I have half a mind to go buy some silk satin and figure out how to line my prรฉ existing  masks with it.

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

Yes @heartsmyface! Those are the ones. I didn't realize they were made of synthetic material either. Grrr. Good catch. 

 

That's so funny you brought up buying your own silk fabric and using it to line your masks. I was toying with the idea of picking up some fabric as well and making my own version of this liner.

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

@itsfi   Itโ€™s definitely looking like thereโ€™s a void in the market for silk liners.  Everything Iโ€™m

 seeing is โ€˜silkyโ€™ and synthetic or silk but with seams against the face.   I want the satin on the INSIDE of my mask and with none of the seams against my face.  Iโ€™m thinking French seams will hide nicely.  Am I asking a lot?  It appears so.  Iโ€™m going to make some patterns tonight and play with an old silk pillowcase and see what works.  Oh yes!!! Silk on the bias is definitely the answer!  Itโ€™s got the perfect amount of stretch!  
D says we can take a trip to fabricland tomorrow and,lol, I donโ€™t have to cut up the linens.  Iโ€™m all wanting to start NOW!   ๐Ÿ˜…

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

@heartsmyface, is this something that might work for you? It looks like a Canadian based company.

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

@itsfi  Hey theyโ€™re local!  Iโ€™ve got my heart set on arts and crafts now so too late.  I got a little kick out of their washing instructions though!  Do not microwave.  That cannot be good for the elastic or the microwave.  

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

The arts and crafts will be fun @heartsmyface! ๐Ÿคฉ Keep us posted! 

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

 

@itsfi   wow, youโ€™ve done so well this month!!  not to be a little devil on your shoulder or anything but a device to protect your skin from friction and from getting raw hardly counts as a beauty purchase unless you plan to buy a few other items in the same transaction.  ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

I imagine going through your empties at the end of the month is going to be VERY satisfying knowing you didnโ€™t bring anything in all month!  ๐Ÿ˜„ 

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

@heartsmyface, completely agree! ๐Ÿ˜„ I would pull the trigger on the mask liners but as you said, there are a *few* things that I have in my cart that are not as functional as the mask liner. Heehee! 

 

I'm so happy to have pushed these out the door and happier still that there are some unused items I am able to donate. I've also been setting aside a handful of other new and unused products, with the idea that if I don't reach for them by the end of summer, I'll donate those as well. It'll be very satisfying to know that the only things I've purchased this month is food. lol.

โ€œIโ€ for I snubbed it, I loved it, and now Itโ€™s discontinued๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

The DearPacker Snow Lotus Honey Sheet Mask has been sitting in my drawer for awhile now. Not sure why; I loved the other one I tried last year). Inside I found a blush pink, gel-soaked mask with a single hard plastic mesh protective layer. It has a very subtle, sweet honey scent, and was chock-full of goopy serum. It fit well, no snipping necessary. I left it on around 30 minutes. My face felt and looked pleasantly plump, with only a little bit of remaining tackiness. I immediately went went to search my deleted emails to see where I purchased this, so I could add it to my buy again list...and itโ€™s been discontinued. A reminder to use the masks I have, and donโ€™t snub a possible love before itโ€™s too late! 

Thank you @ShortErica for this much-needed theme!

 

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

Ohhhhh noooo @eshoe yep I noticed all the dearpacker are gone from Ulta ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

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

Such a bummer @lmaster. Their hydrogels were good, too. I wonder if those are still available. I remember they were one of the few that pretty much stayed in place instead of sliding off my face๐Ÿ˜‚

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

@eshoe if I recall correctly, Ulta completely did away with the brand

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

Go figure, @lmaster๐Ÿ˜•

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

@eshoe  Oh dang it! That mask sounds wonderful, of course they had to discontinue it!  ๐Ÿ˜ซ

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

@Shosh85 I can almost guarantee that had it been been terrible, I would have had three backups๐Ÿ˜‚

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

@eshoe   Ahhhh, of course itโ€™s discontinued!  Sigh!    I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve seen this one but will have to double check my stash for it.  If I have one itโ€™s yours.
