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: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

๐Ÿ˜‚ @itsfi. i just blame stuff like that on lack of sleep, stress, distracted. But you did have me singing the alphabet & still do everytime I need to put something in order 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee, sadly, Iโ€™d say itโ€™s lack of sleep and stress; and Iโ€™m probably distracted by those two things as well. ๐Ÿคช It was so funny. It actually made me laugh and it was really good  to laugh. In fact, I keep chuckling every time I think about it @lmaster! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Forget about fuzzy math; this is fuzzy alphabet at its best. ๐Ÿคฃ


When I help my niece wash her hands after a meal, we usually sing the โ€œHappy Birthdayโ€ song (or โ€œLet It Goโ€ when the mood strikes herโ€ ๐Ÿ˜†). The day after alphabet-gate happened, I had us sing the alphabet, which brought on โ€œwhy are we singing the alphabet song, auntie?โ€ Hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Alphabet gate @itsfi @Loretta55 oh my gosh 



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, I mean, P after Q??? Thatโ€™s just scandalous! @Loretta55 @sonnydee ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ



Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Loretta55 @itsfi we have to have fun on Bic!! And trust me,,, with you two sweets,,, it's guaranteed ๐Ÿ˜†โ™ฅ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Awwww thank you very much @lmaster @itsfi.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Iโ€™m never going to live it down @itsfi @lmaster . Donโ€™t worry I have a good sense of humor.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Loretta55, it was you and me. We are in this together!!! @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi that was so funny! Good times!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh nice, I have these in my stash, @itsfi - looking forward to using them now!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hope they work out for you @eshoe.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Definitely sounds like a relaxing masking session! Glad these worked out so great! Would you say these are more effective than the Sephora ones?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85, I thought these Aveeno ones were better, which surprised me. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Iโ€™ll plan to use the Sephora Collection ones again very soon for a better comparison. I know I have a set of the older ones from Sephora and I have at least a foot mask from the new clean line, which Iโ€™ve yet to try. Stay tuned! 

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

O is for oil (avocado), Origins and overnight

Ingredient focus: avocado oilIngredient focus: avocado oil

I thought I might get in some O for off-theme masking time a la @heartsmyface with this masking trio, but this avocado oil focus gets an O all on its own.


Hair Mask:

I was introduced to the Garnier Fructis 1 Minute Hair Mask + Avocado extra by the outstanding @Shosh85! You're another O for this masking sesh, Shosh! ๐Ÿ˜† One previous use of this mask coupled with shosh's seal of approval ๐Ÿ‘ was enough to enable me to delve into the other hair masks in this line. All have been good. This particular version is best suited for dry or damaged hair, this rich cream has a nice scent that smells nothing like avocado; I would say fresh and subtly floral, maybe. It works beautifully to smooth, detangle and nourish hair. It really is a TLC in a jar for your hair, leaving it soft, silky and moisturized. Another great rec from shosh - thank you! You've never steered me wrong! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿฅ‘

My Skin Type / Condition: Dehydrated and dry, very much so on both fronts. 


Wash Off / Overnight Mask:

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask is another oldie but goodie. I think @eshoe may have posted about her use of it recently as well. It's  one of those masks that I've been using since before I even started taking part in the masking thread  on BIC. I was going to say that it feels like years ago, but it is in fact YEARS ago. Hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜‚ This is intended as an overnight mask - it  really does a wonderful job of putting back some intense moisture to the skin, especially for those with dry or dehydrated skin who would be the target market for this beauty.

It's a clear, gel-cream that smells refreshing and fruity. A little goes a long way but my usual MO for this mask is, or has been, to slather on and massage a fair amount onto my skin before a flight. โœˆ๏ธ Airplanes are horrible environments for my skin and this Origins mask is one of the ones I like to keep with me and use as part of my pre-flight prep (or even as a moisturizer on very cold, chilly and windy days). My skin always looks happy after I use this mask - softer, smoother (no dry patches!), more hydrated, and plump skin. โ™ฅ๏ธ I questioned whether I should break out this DS, my last DS of it but as I don't have any plans for work travel this year and since my skin is very dry and dehydrated at the moment, I went for it. I can always look for another DS or pick up a full size of this or the apricot version of it if I need to. 

Sheet Mask:

MaskFrudia Skin Relief Repair Irritable Skin (Avocado Relief Mask)

Claim(s): Repairing

Material: Soft, slightly thin leaning mask made up of nature-derived, botanical fibers, which, to me, could mean any number of things. This one, being a natural sheet mask, has a light tan/beige hue to it, instead of the bleached white color that you see in many sheet masks.

Adherence: Good

Fit: Not bad - a smidge too wide at the temples, about an inch too long at the chin/jawline. I only needed to make slight adjustments to the lower inner corners of the opening for the eyes.

Essence: Thin, watery but not runny, milky essence with a fresh, slightly fruity floral scent that dissipates quickly.

Performance & Results: Oh wow, my skin loved this mask. My skin is really on the dehydrated side at the moment so it slurped up the goodness of this mask during the 20 minutes I left it on. After removing the mask, the more normal or oily parts of my face looked dewy as there was some essence remaining in those area. The dry spots felt nourished and happy, with many of the areas where I had dry patches starting to form looking and feeling moisturized, healthier. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿฅ‘

Best Suited For: Dry, dehydrated or compromised skin (and who are not allergic to avocado oil). This would be a good choice for a lot of the maskers on here, especially in the winter and this transitional period from winter to spring.

Will I Repurchase?: Absolutely. 

All three of these masks are avocaDOs. ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿฅ‘


I know, @Samtian. These aren't going to be on your list, are they? 

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

@itsfi the Garnier hair masks are so good, and the price is friendly, tooโ˜บ๏ธ  I have been using the Origins Mini Drink Upโ„ข Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask with Avocado & Swiss Glacier Water 1 oz/ 3... more now that I have finished the Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask with Vitamin C 2 oz/ 59 mL, and find them to be quite similar! Scent, consistency, absorption...although I think the Origins lacks the AHAs๐Ÿค”

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

@eshoe, Iโ€™ve used the YTTP before though not very often because it contains AHA and I donโ€™t want to over-exfoliate. Thatโ€™s interesting that you pick up a similar scent between the two masks. I find the YTTP to be sweet and fruity, more berry-ish, and the Origins to be fruity and floral, but I donโ€™t pick up any berry scent in the Origins mask.

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

@itsfi I need to try that frudia sheet mask!!!

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

Yes @lmaster! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ You were one of the lovely maskers who I thought would really enjoy this one! So nourishing! 

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

@itsfi These masks were my introduction to Frudia and I'm certainly not mad at them!  I was just eyeing a Frudia lip balm this morning!

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

A Frudia lip balm, you say @missjeanie? Which one caught your fancy?

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

The honey pomegranate pot one first caught my eye @itsfi  but then I think I prefer the tube for the mango! IMG_9484.PNGIMG_9485.PNG
