Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@lmaster  Definitely! I should really start making a list! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

This line has so much serum packed in to that pouch @Shosh85! You are certainly a very patient masker to wait that long for the tack to wear off ☺️

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@eshoe  Love it when masks are loaded with serum! Tack has never bothered me, in fact I kinda like it - it makes a good primer for makeup and helps other skincare products 'stick' better! Thanks again! 😘

Awww you are so welcome, @Shosh85 πŸ€—

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Hey maskers! Here are some Memorial Day sales on masks that y'all may be interested in. πŸ˜

This πŸ‘‡ had me cracking up, but so perfect! Yes, try one sheet mask before picking up a box! Have they been listening to our conversations?! β¬‡οΈ Trying not to tag folks who are working through their stash or are on a mask no-buy.  @Shosh85 @lmaster @PrettyPaint @Kim888 @emaisgr8 @quspork @emaisgr8 @SAlyFitz @Samtian If I'm missing someone or if folks who are on a no-buy would like to be tagged in the future, let me know.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi

Are there any sheet masks you would thinks are worth picking up at one of these sales? There's just so many to choose from; I don't know where to begin.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@missy94612, masksheets has a pretty good selection and its set up is a little easier to navigate than yesstyle. I tend to really like the following brands for sheet masks: Mediheal, Leaders, Papa Recipe, Etude House. The new Innisfree ones are nice too.

 

For ingredients, I go for honey / royal jelly / propolis, aloe, snail, hyaluronic acid (may be listed as sodium hyaluronate), green tea, catctus for hydration. Ceramides, olive oil, honey, milk, or milky creamy serums for nourishment. Centella asiatica (cica), chamomile, aloe and calendula, allantoin for soothing. Pearl, niacinamide, licorice root for brightening.

 

A lot of it is trial and error to see what your skin likes and doesn't like, either as a single ingredient or in combination with things. I've found it also helps to identify a few of the maskers here who have a similar skin type to yours to see what masks they rate highly. 

 

I generally like to pick out my sheet masks but there can be so many to choose from, as you said. Signing up for a subscription box can be helpful to get a variety of masks to try until you get to a place where you have a better idea of what works for your skin or what types of material or ingredients you like. I did Facetory for a time and many others here have as well, including @eshoe. If I were to do it again, I would just say to pick a sub box that allows you pick a subscription period, as opposed to being locked in for a year - most have 3 and 6 month plans. You'll get a good amount and variety with just one box. And if I pass on a lesson learned, it's keep an eye on how many sheet masks you have - they can pile up pretty quickly. lol.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  

Thank you! You're always so helpful and knowledgeable. I followed your recommendation and checked out the masksheets store. You were right - there's a good selection. I picked up a few of the ones on the list you and @Shosh85 made for me. I don't use sheet masks as often as the two of you, so I only picked up a handful, enough for a few nights of masking with the husband.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Yay @missy94612! I hope you and your husband like the masks. Picking up a few is a really great way to go about it. Sheet masks can pile up pretty quickly! πŸ˜‚ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi ooh nice! Thank you!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Samtian, you’re very welcome. I love that there’s usually a sheet mask sale somewhere! 😍 Though that’s probably also the reason my sheet mask collection grew so quickly in the past. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ We’ll focus on β€œin the past” with that last statement. πŸ˜‰ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi hahah good idea!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Oh I'm sure I will!! @itsfi I have not had much time to look at all the options, I'll probably start checking them out on Friday πŸ˜‰

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@lmaster, you’ve had a very full May!  Lots of good events and treasured family memories! 😍 I’ve no doubt you will find some great masks to haul! πŸ› 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

πŸ™ˆThanks for the tag, @itsfi! Are you picking anything up from the sales? 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@quspork, I picked up a box of the Mediheal Proatin - for me, it's probably a 1-2 times per month mask in the summer and a once every 7-10 days mask the rest of the year. It's a good deal and I had some points / rewards that I was able to apply to make it an even better deal for the pack. Ha! I also restocked some skincare (e.g., sunblock, moisturizer, etc.) and picked up single sheets of a couple of other Mediheal sheet masks - I forgot which line I liked so I'll figure it out this time. πŸ˜† 

 

I have a cart at the other sites too but am waiting to pull the trigger on those. I have a feeling there may be more sales announcements from other sites that may come out later this week and there are also some other beauty and non-beauty related things I'm waiting to see if they go on sale this weekend. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Thanks for the tag!! @itsfi πŸ™Œ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@lmaster, you’re welcome. Will you be picking up any masks during the Memorial Day sales?

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Sigh @itsfi. At least the next time sales are listed, I will be list in handπŸ‘πŸΌ Come on, July 4th!!! 

Thank you for sharing these, the β€˜try one before you buy 10’ speaks to me, too.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@eshoe, lol! I think β€œtry one before you buy 10” will be my goal for mask hauls from now on. Though I may pick up 2, just to have a back up. πŸ˜‰ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  Haha. I got that email too and can totally relate. πŸ˜…   

 

You've been so good with using up your masks, though, that it sounds like you can treat yourself to some sales!
