Mask of the Week Misc. Info & Previous Year's Links:


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’–

@missjeanie Actually, your reviews are the reason I picked some up! @itsfi 

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

@Shosh85 I want to say that I've seen the brand have a few other items I was eyeing at one point as well.... I believe when I first saw them they were doing cotton products, menstrual products and face masks, but I see now they've expanded quite a bit.  I have a few heating patches that stick onto your abdomen but haven't tried them yet.  And... now looking at their site they have a bunch of stuffs I wouldn't mind testing! Need to get back into the US to visit a Target!

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

Ahhhh, the circle of enabling!!! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ @Shosh85 @missjeanie 

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

@missjeanie, Rael sheet masks are available online at Urban Outfitters Canada. 

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

Oh nice @itsfi , I always tend to forget about their beauty selection and it's actually a sizeable one.  I checked last night and I maybe have several of them in my collection already.  total face palm.  need to get through more of this stash clearly. 

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

@missjeanie, youโ€™re doing an incredible job on working through your stash!! ๐Ÿ’– I hear ya on forgetting that UO stocks sheet masks. Thereโ€™s so many more resources for sheet mask these days. Great for us; well, sorta. ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ

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

@itsfi Thanks... it's been a bit of getting back into the groove, but I know that working through some of my 'boring' masks will help me bring the collection back into a manageable size that I can have fun with.  I found myself perusing the UO website and then had to draw a line with myself and close down the laptop for a hot minute lol

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

Nicely done @missjeanie! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Itโ€™ll feel good when your mask collection is at your target level.

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

@itsfi Those are some great looking masks!

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

Thank you @Samtian! They performed really well too! My skin felt so hydrated and happy after using each of them!

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

@itsfi oh my goodness!! You used some great sounding masks,, I'm very interested in a couple of these as well

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

Sheet masks have been a great way for me to get some more hydration @lmaster! It was a good week for my skin. ๐Ÿ˜†

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

This looks like a nice set of masks, @itsfi. I'm definitely curious to try the Rael and Celloine.

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

@quspork, both of these masks are good. Different from each other but nice for hydration. The Celloine mask is the harder of the two to source. Hoping we see more of those on the market at some point.

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

This collage is gorgeous, @itsfi!! A mask called tears that provided hydration is immediately on my to buy list for my dry skin. 


...Or maybe not? I can only find at a New Zealand store. I will explore further where to buy. Where did you purchase?

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

Thank you @haleyvvvv! Youโ€™re the inspiration for collages. ๐Ÿค— I now include working on a collage (and notes on a mask) as an option for unwinding after a long day or for when I canโ€™t fall back asleep immediately. 

Yeah, it looks like sourcing is going to be an obstacle for the Tears mask. ๐Ÿ˜ข Iโ€™m pretty sure I picked up the mask at one of the local shops that carry sheet masks, but I canโ€™t remember which one specifically. It was before covid so I canโ€™t imagine they still stock it. ๐Ÿ˜” When things settle down with my schedule, Iโ€™ll make my rounds to the stores again and see if I can hunt some down, or find more info from them about the mask. 

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

@itsfi  Sounds like a great group of masks!
I haven't even got a chance to try out the Rael  mask yet ๐Ÿ˜‚, so it's good to hear you enjoyed it! I liked the BioBelle mask too - I agree this one's a bit better than other "new" ones. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I haven't heard of that Tears mask, but it definitely sounds like one I'd like to try! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

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

My skin was really happy with this group of masks @Shosh85! ๐Ÿ˜ Iโ€™ll be interested in your take on the Rael.  Iโ€™d use any of these again but the Tears and Dr Ceuracle masks were my faves from this bunch. Gotta keep this face happily hydrated!! ๐Ÿ’ฆ 

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

@itsfi the Celloine Tears sounds heavenly, especially the comfy gauze. I love the Merbliss, though it is a bit fragranced. Love that this is unscented!


eta: it appears this might be a bit tricky to find, surprise, surprise ๐Ÿ˜‚

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

@eshoe, well, at least itโ€™s not discontinued, right?!! ๐Ÿ˜† Probably better that itโ€™s a challenge to find; makes it easier to keep up with my masking schedule and continue with my sheet mask no buy this month. 

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

From Peel Week, for @keana1 โ˜บ๏ธ 


During Peel Week my skin was not having it, but I wanted to make sure I met keana1โ€™s challenge before too much time had passed (thank you for sharing this theme!) Itโ€™s been harder and harder to get some quality wash-off masking in, so this 5-minute peel is perfect. The alpyn beauty Wild Huckleberry 8-Acid Polishing Peel Mask is full of all sorts of textures; small, large and in-between granules. It has an unusual scent, almost like a soft charcoal. It also has a seriously long ingredient list that reminds me of fruit basket upset. I tried to include it here, but I could not post due to exceeding my 20,001 character limit. 

eta: I was able to get a screenshot:


I only use this once a month at the most; the name (8 acids?) and amount of extracts make me very cautious. Thankfully, Iโ€™ve yet to experience any adverse effects, and it leaves my skin feeling extra soft. 

The Aโ€™Pieu Sweet Icing Pineapple Mask has a deliciously sweet pineapple scent. I did question myself when I picked this up to use...a pineapple mask after an acid mask? What was I thinking? But it is gentle and the watery serum just gave my skin a little love before packing on the heavy-duty moisturizers and oils. The fit is ok, I have to make a couple of snips under the eyes to create my own lovely flap to fold down. This is such a pleasant mask to use, that it doesnโ€™t bother me at all. 

The little eye gels are...cute? I donโ€™t find them to be very functional but I thought they were fun. Good for burning cheeks (that I was prepared for, but did not need). In all, I was happy with the outcome and would 10/10 repeat everything.
