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.

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

Another Peach mask and a Papa Recipe mask I was gifted from the lovely @eshoe ๐Ÿ˜Š





The Creme Shop Peach Infused Face Mask



Medium thickness cotton



Jelly serum but not much of it in the pouch or on the mask



Sort of a combo of peach and floral, but peach is what stood out the most. It was light and not too noticeable while the mask on



Classic Creme Shop fit - too long at the forehead and chin, too wide at the temples and the space between the eyes was a little too wide.

The adherence wasn't great, which isn't surprising considering how dry it started.


Wear Time:

This thing would not stay on, and I had to constantly pat it down. I managed to keep it on for 15 minutes



Very light, lasted about 10 minutes



Soft and lightly hydrated skin with a nice glow. The results were pretty decent considering the short wear time and adherence issues



Since this one was close to expiring, I think I would repurchase, but mostly because I want to see if a fresher mask makes a difference.





 Papa Recipe Real Centella Gauze Mask Pack



Medium thickness gauze






Sort of fresh & clean and leafy



Just a little long at the chin


Wear Time:
Half hour


Very light, stuck around for about 5 minutes



Refreshed, a smidge brighter, soft and comfortably hydrated skin with a nice glow



Yes, definitely! I love how comfy the gauze is and I am always a sucker for milky serum ๐Ÿ˜ƒI'm not sure there's been anything from this brand I haven't liked!



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

I'm curious about the jelly mask!! @Shosh85 I really need to try the papa recipe mask too!! @eshoe maybe I'm hoarding it ๐Ÿ˜†

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

@lmaster  The Peach mask wasn't bad, I just think it could've been a lot better if it wasn't so dry.

I loved the Papa Recipe mask - it's definitely going on the top of my repurchase list! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

I just used this one again tonight, @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ™‚ So happy it worked alright for your skin. The more you use a mask, the more you think about how it could be tweaked...a thinner gauze might be a nice lift to the Papa, but otherwise, yay for a nice skin treat!

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

@eshoe  This is such a nice one! Thanks so much again for sending it over - I didn't even know this one existed, so I was super happy to be able to try it out! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Another Papa Recipe winner! So hard to go wrong with those, @Shosh85. It's too bad about the adherence issues with the Creme Shop one. Maybe a "newer" one would be better, though I feel like I've had similar issues with ones from that line before. 

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

@quspork  Papa Recipe really is such a solid brand - I haven't been let down yet! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

 The Creme Shop on the other hand is not such a solid brand, lol, so I wouldn't be surprised if that's just how this mask is supposed to be ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

Gauze and milky serum @Shosh85?!! Not much more you needed to say about the Papa Recipe mask. ๐Ÿ˜‚ This is definitely on the list. Papa Recipe really has some solid sheet masks, donโ€™t they?

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

@itsfi  There's not much I didn't like about this one! I haven't been let down by this brand yet! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Targeted skin concern: needs firming ๐Ÿ˜†


  • This is a thinner material sheet with lots of extra clear serum
  • Scent was cherry but seems a touch less potent than I remembered
  • Fit was good, could of been a touch wider at the cheek area
  • Wear time is 20 minutes
  • My skin absorbed about half the serum, then I massaged the remaining into my skin
  • Didn't notice any firming, I did see brighter skin a touch more hydrated, not too moisturizing, and no lasting tackiness
  • I do have a couple "spots" aka pimples that definitely felt like they were drying out after using it
  • I would absolutely repurchase these, especially to use to target blemishes, which was not my initial intention ๐Ÿ™ŒIMG_20210414_082555331.jpg


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

Oh @lmaster good to know this is for blemishes. 


I donโ€™t mean to jump on your post, but this reminded me that my daughter asked me if she could try this one that I had from @Shosh85 (thank you๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–!). I told her only if she wrote a review, which she did.

โ€It smelled so good and delicious!! I wanted to eat it!


It was so cold and mildly tingly.

When I was wearing it, I pressed a dry towel to my face and it made the mask work wonders 10x more!!


The texture and consistency:


(10 is the highest and 0 is the lowest)


Mask slipperiness: 3.5

Serum slipperiness: 10

Tingling: 4

The mask is very porous, as it is like micro Swiss cheese with tiny holes everywhere.


When I took the mask off I basically used it as a towelette to rub in the serum and get it well-soaked in!


When I took it off it made my face itch a bit and my cheeks got a little red but overall - great mask! โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ


P.S. My skin is now truly hydrated!! It feels so smooth!


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

Awwww @eshoe love her review!! ๐Ÿ™Œ

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

@lmaster  I haven't gotten around to trying any of mine yet, but I've sure been hearing some great reviews! Glad you enjoyed this one! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ’

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

@Shosh85 yes, this one is a top favorite, blueberry might beat this one a smidge, both I love ๐Ÿ˜ I know you will too

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

Ohhh this sounds great @lmaster ! I love cherry scent !!

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

It's really good too @Kim888 

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

@lmaster  Oooo Iโ€™ve never seen the cherry ones before. Glad you liked it!

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

The scent is yummy!! @ather  ๐Ÿคค

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

An accidental mask-while-you-task yesterday morning, thanks to a double-duty cleanser:)


My skin needed a gentle cleansing, but I wanted to do a quick hydrating mask. I remembered @WinglessOne sharing that the The INKEY List Oat Cleansing Balm 5 oz/ 150 mL can be used as a mask, yay! I used to use the Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm 1.7 oz/ 50 mL in the same way, and love cleansing balms in general to give my skin a little extra love when time is limited. I wore the ILIA Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil which is not too sticky/icky, but lasts longer than other thin lip oils Iโ€™ve tried. This shade is a little drab on me, but I will have no problem finishing it since it wears so well. Finally, a little under eye masking with the Elisha Coy Snail Hydrogel Eye Patches. These little gels stick pretty well despite their snaily-slippery-goodness!

It was fun to discover a few ways to fill in the gap, and to get in a little extra care, even when I didnโ€™t have more time to devote to masking. Thank you @l8totheparty for a much-needed and appreciated theme!

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

@eshoe Ohhhhh I have that Inky list balm waiting in the wings.  How do you find it as a cleanser?  Or is it better as a mask?

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

@eshoe sounds like a nice and soothing sesh
