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.

@missjeanie yep!! That was totally me ๐Ÿ˜‚

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

@lmaster the orchid flower one has th cutest packaging!!! no tackiness and moisturizing- totally sounds like a winner!

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

@Kim888 the orchid flower is hands down an incredible sheet!! It's a 5โญ in my opinion

Last nightโ€™s mask for this weekโ€™s Outrageous Mask Claims:

For โ€œO,โ€ the last bit of the OLEHENRIKSEN Cold Plunge Pore Mask 3 oz/ 90 mL convinced me to add it to my repurchase list. The cool mint-like scent and sensation are so enjoyable. I am also a sucker for the bright, jewel-toned shade๐ŸงŠ The Pat McGrath Lust Luxe Lip Balm (๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ @SportyGirly125 love this!) is extra smoothing and lasts while masking. It is scentless and easy to apply. The little tin feels a bit nostalgic, which I think is a sweet touch.

Finally, the Purclair Cocktail Cinderella Aqua Mask for Most Outrageous Claims (great theme, @ShortErica!). It moistens, calms, and promotes healthy and clear skin. It reminds me of those commercials...โ€but wait, thereโ€™s more!โ€

โ€œLike Cinderella, the queen of luck, brings good luck to your skin.โ€

Good luck for my skin?
Ok, you got me! Now I am curious. Time will tell, but in the meantime, letโ€™s see what the mask itself is like.

The scent was a mix of sunscreen and something fruity. I noted pineapple and orange extracts, and after sticking my nose inside again, I could distinguish the pineapple. It was more sunscreen, though-not my cup of tea but it was manageable. The fit was surprisingly good-I really enjoyed it! It was also comfy; not quite charcoal mask level, but unexpectedly soft. The serum was slightly thicker than water, with enough in the packet to reapply to my cheeks. It wore quite well for 20 minutes, and began to dry in a few places. I was very pleased with this one, which I originally had planned to use for @PrettyPaintโ€™s โ€˜Masks that could be a band nameโ€™ challenge. 

As far as that claim, so far today, my skin has been...neutral on luck. I will give it a few days and report back;)

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

@eshoe  The Cinderella mask sounds nice! I hope your skin received some good luck from it ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ€

I really like that OH mask! It feels so refreshing! I especially love to use it in conjunction with the OH Sauna Scrub ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Okay this sounds like a great sheet mask @eshoe !  A bit on the thicker side with the serum, a sunscreen scent (I'm one of the weirdo's who loooooove a good Hawaiian Tropic moment) with a touch of pineapple AND Good Luck!!!  I hope it brought you fortune!

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

Please bring my skin good luck,,, or just bring me good luck in general ๐Ÿ˜‚ @eshoe 

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

@eshoe lucky skin is totally an outrageous claim haha! Sounds like it was good overall! and fun packaging as well!

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

@eshoe @Glad you are loving the PMG lip balm. 

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

Not really on theme.  I blindly grabbed a mask today.  I like that this one is red and foily.  It warmed up on my face and felt nice although it wasnโ€™t the best fit and was drippy.  Lots of extra lightly floral scented serum in the package.  I didnโ€™t notice anything special.  Minimum hydration.  meh, good for photos not for results.

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

Super cute photo op, but total bummer about the drippyness and meh efficacy @heartsmyface .

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

@heartsmyface total bummer!! Foil masks sure are beautiful though

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

@heartsmyface  Oh I love it! I've had this one for a while now but haven't had the heart to use it yet because it's my son's favorite ๐Ÿ˜‚ It's too bad the results were unimpressive, but it definitely gives you a fabulous selfie! ๐Ÿ˜

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

@heartsmyface foil masks in general are pretty but donโ€™t perform as well as they look., why๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

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

Thanks for sharing @heartsmyface  - I think I have this floating around as well. Too bad it wasnโ€™t anything special !

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

You look awesome @heartsmyface!  This mask totally fits with the theme. O is for off theme! ๐Ÿ˜† I may have a few of those myself this week! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

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

@itsfi   Haha, that works.  I suppose I can do consistent Overnight masks this week:). But Iโ€™m down for the opportunity to do off theme:). 

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

You look like a superhero! Bummer it's not super hydrating though ๐Ÿ˜•

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

@Mcakes   At least I still got to enjoy some me time:)

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

N is for Natto

Last week's plans for Takeout Tuesday ended up happening over the weekend, and I decided that Sushi Saturday: The Takeout Edition sounded worthwhile. This was the first time I've had natto maki. It was fine; I'm glad I tried it and, really, the only reason I did was because I was intrigued by the star ingredient in this mask and the mask hearts used earlier this week. I'd eat it again, but not sure it's something I would crave or order myself.Last week's plans for Takeout Tuesday ended up happening over the weekend, and I decided that Sushi Saturday: The Takeout Edition sounded worthwhile.

I'd eat it again, but not sure it's something I would crave or order myself.
 
tl;dr: The softly floral scented milky serum pairs beautifully with the super soft, ultra thin Tencel material to create a luxuriously comfortable feel over the face. Skin feels soft, moisturized and bouncy after an half hour of wear, even as there's a slight tacky-to-the-touch feel that lingers for some time after the mask is removed and the serum has been completely absorbed.
 
Spoiler
Skin Type / Condition: Dehydrated, dry. Sensitive, dark spots from acne and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
 
Mask: My Beauty Diary Natto Fermented Moisturizing Sheet Mask
 
Claim(s): Intense hydration and hydrating resilience, per the reverse side of the packet.
 
Material: Super soft, ultra thin Tencel
 
Adherence: Wonderful, like you're not wearing a mask at all. Love the second-skin feel of this mask.
 
Fit: Almost perfect. Only adjustments I made were to take off about 1 - 1-1/2 inches from the chin and to make the slightest of incisions to the lower inner corner of the opening for the eyes to help the material covering the nose bridge to lay flat against the skin. 
 
Essence: A beautiful, viscous milky emulsion having a soft, pleasant, slightly floral scent. There's extra, too, in the packet. โ™ฅ๏ธ
 
Performance & Results: Taiwanese sheet masks tend to fit the size, shape and features of my face really well and this MBD Natto mask was no exception. The material and the milky essence just melt into my skin, which felt soothed and nourished immediately after I applied the mask. An half hour with the mask yielded soft, moisturized, bouncy skin that had a tacky-to-the-touch feel lasting at least an half hour after I removed the mask. 
 
Best Suited For: those with normal, normal-to-dry or dry skin would like this year-round. Those with oily or combination skin (leaning oily) could be happy with this in the cooler months, especially winter.
 
Will I Repurchase?: Yes, but I may first try the Mediheal natto mask that @heartsmyface used earlier this week to see which performs better for me.
