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, fit, adherence, mask type (hydrating, brightening, exfoliating, detox, sleeping, etc.) as well as your overall experience.

Most importantly: Would you repurchase it? 


Second most important: Have fun and merry masking!

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’–

@missjeanie @Sunnysmom, I almost didn’t include the percentages they claimed because I had no idea how they came up with them. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Or how they could arrive at them. I’m not great with numbers but I furrowed my brows when I read it. Hmmm… maybe that’s what they want - creasing / wrinkling my forehead at the numbers and then β€œneeding” the mask to help with the wrinkles. πŸ˜‚ 

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

Probably exactly what they want @itsfi ! πŸ˜† They clearly want us to know how very precise they are too with those numbers! 

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

@itsfi  Oh nice! Thanks for looking this up! It totally sounds like something I'd love to try - it sounds wonderful! Now I wonder if it's reusable forever, or if there's a certain amount of times they suggest you can use it for πŸ€” Either way, I'm sure I'll buy 'em!

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

Oooouuh @Shosh85! 😍 Do you think you’ll pick it up? πŸ› If you do, you know masking mavens here await your thoughts and feedback on it. πŸ˜ƒ 

 

I feel like if enough folks here give it a try and have similar thoughts we could say something like β€œ9 out of 10 dentists maskers extraordinaire agree…” πŸ˜† 

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

@itsfi Hahaha! The percentages they gave sure do seem a little odd! πŸ˜‚

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

@itsfi  Thanks for the research!!! Ok so 40$ isn’t so bad. I may need to try it out once I see some reviews!! Sounds promising!! 

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

@ather, if you end up getting it, please let us know your thoughts after you've put it to the test! 

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

@itsfi  I will!! πŸ˜‹

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

@itsfi  Yes I saw it. I wonder if it’s a one time use mask or multiple time. 🧐

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

@ather, it's a reusable, silicone mask.

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

@itsfi  Ooh, this one looks super neat! I can't tell, is this mask reusable? If so, $40 isn't so bad... for a one-time use/disposable one though, that is a pretty hefty price! It definitely looks like it'd be a fun one to try!

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

@Shosh85, it seems like it would be reusable. $40 for a single-use mask, while not entirely unheard of in these parts, sure would be steeeeeep!😬 

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

@itsfi  Thank you for the tag - I'm interested in this for sure. It seems like it could be very helpful for migraines. 

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

@PrettyPaint, good point about possibly helping with migraines! 😊 Will be interesting to hear more about it as well as any trends that come along. 

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

This is just intriguing, @itsfi- I really didn't see acupressure coming in sheet mask form, but I guess it makes sense! It'll be interesting to see if other brands also jump into the fray and what new options may pop up over the next couple of years. 

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

Definitely interesting, right @quspork?!! I'm not sure the Mediheal mask has it down entirely and time will tell with the CT one, but there does seem to be some movement in that direction. It does make some sense. I think about times when I've gone to get a facial and those head and face massages are quite lovely, I must say; especially that head and neck massage that comes with it. πŸ˜ I also think of how jade rollers have been incorporated by some into their sheet masking time and myofascial massage in skincare routines. If anything it's made me think again about skincare as self-care.

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

Oh @itsfi thank you! I remember seeing a mask with cryotherapy tech and I was thinking to myself…how can it stay cold? I obviously need to educate myself on this so I can be in the loop!

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

@eshoe, there has been a huge uptick in the number of masks on the market in recent years, both of the wash off and the sheet mask variety, which for skincare mask lovers like the folks here, has its pros and cons. Innovations come not just in ingredients but sheet mask material and all sorts of things like the Mediheal acupoint masks as well as this new CT one that is expected to launch later this month. It seems like we all need to educate ourselves to stay in the loop (though there are some things when it comes to masks that I could see myself being completely happy with just staying in the same lane forever! πŸ˜‰) We'll just keep learning together. 

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

Okay... curiosity peaked @itsfi !  I wonder how this works with different face shapes and sizes?  I'm gonna sit here and repeat that 'I don't need any more masks' a few times.  June/July I have fallen off the wagon big time.  Need to use more up!

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

Hahaha @missjeanie! Oh yes, the things we need to remind ourselves of ... constantly!!!! πŸ˜‚ It reminds me of the days, back when I was a kid (hahaha! I'm now saying things like that! Ohhhh goodness gracious!) when punishment might be writing something on the chalkboard:

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 

 

Let's just say we hit "pause" in June and July. It happens. We just press "play" again. You got this, missjeanie! I know you do! 

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

Oh man… @itsfi  you’re not the only one who had to β€˜lines’ after call Somedays lol!
