Mask of the Week Challenge!

Hello Lovelies! As we make our resolutions and check them twice, I thought we could start a skincare version of the Weekly Challenge. Many of us wanted to use more masks, shop our stash and focus on our Skin so hopefully this thread will be an inspiration to do just that. Join us with pictures and comments down below.

 

Masking Spreadsheet Info

 

Spoiler

Hello every, @eshoe and I are very happy to present the BIC Masking Challenge Spreadsheet. The idea is to have an easily searchable database of masks and reviews as a reference point when we are considering our next purchase. Data integrity was important to us so instead of everyone inputing data directly into the spreadsheet where theoretically information could be deleted or edited we have the questionnaire. It should take no longer then 1-2 minutes with the option for a more detailed review (which you can copy from your post on this thread).

 

Remember the idea is not to replace this thread. I personally love reading, commenting and interacting with all you amazing women here and that shouldn’t change. This would just be on top of that. Hopefully the more people that partake in this, the larger database of information we’ll have for reference. It will be extra effort in the beginning but then we would only need to input any new mask we’ve tried.

Since we aren’t allowed to post links, please PM or myself for it. You will also find this information on the original post so you don’t need a database to search for this post!


 Incase you need some help to filter/search results, try this :-

 

Search Specific Word or Phrase —> Edit -> Find and Replace -> Search Word

Filter/Organize by Columns --> Data -> Create a Filter -> Select Options
 

There are 2 ways to edit a response: 

1) Once you have completed a survey, click on the "Edit Your Response" link on that page. Once this page is closed, the only way to make a change is to:

2) PM @Aaliaa or @eshoe to make the change directly in the response spreadsheet

 

Thanks @eshoe for putting this together!

 

 

 Rules

 

Spoiler

Each week there will be a new Masking Challenge posted. It will range from type of mask, brand specific week or fun challenges along the way.

Choose mask, take picture (with mask on or before), place mask on face, relax and dream of the next Sephora purchase you want to make, remove mask for healthier skin.

Have Fun!!

P.S. If you have any suggestions or challenge recommendations feel free to message me and I'll add them to the list.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I am really excited for it, @bakeamuffin. With the FFS sale it was like paying for the La La and getting everything else for free👍🏼

Mask of the Week Challenge!

just received this today as a "sample" in boxycharm. interesting I'll say, definitely not one I'd purchase again,, ever ummm ok, so it's a tube of charcoal mask, then it comes with two black lace masks to press over it. ikr... so it said to avoid hairline, eyebrows, eyes and place where needed. I put it on the Tzone then put the lace mask on, it fit good, but it's just weird to me lol.i left it on for 13 min and it hurt so bad when taking the lace mask off, it was almost unbearable. I feel like it took layers of skin off.( it hurt that bad) just a no for me!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

😱😱 oh no! I’m so sorry about your masking experience. It is definitely a NO. It sounds so painful. 😣 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

that sounds....interesting haha @lmaster - those peel off masks always hurt so much but that just sounds extra complicated 

omg @Kim888 it was ridiculous lol

omg @Kim888 it was ridiculous lol

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@lmaster Yikes! I associate "compression" with compression stockings...which if you havent had the pleasure of wearing squeeze your legs really tight. I had lymphedema in my legs after chemo and had to wear them. I cant imagine that feeling on my face...you're a brave soul 😄

Was the purpose of the lace to pull off the charcoal?

that's my guess bc there's no way around that, @GG84 it w...

that's my guess bc there's no way around that, @GG84 it wasn't uncomfortable on with the compression lace lol but pulling it off was just torture

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This does not sounds pleasant @lmaster, I’m sorry it was painful to remove 😞 This definitely sounds like one to avoid! I hope your skin isn’t too irritated or sore after that one! 

you know @bakeamuffin at first it looked really interesti...

you know @bakeamuffin at first it looked really interesting and different, but I'd personally not ever use the lace mask thingy lol I think that made it much worse then if I just applied the peel off mask by itself

Re: you know @bakeamuffin at first it looked really interesti...

So much for “Compression lace support” 😖 it doesn’t sound pleasant!! 

Peel off masks scare me so much @lmaster, you were brave to try this! 

Re: you know @bakeamuffin at first it looked really interesti...

I know, it's just a crazy situation @bakeamuffin never again! Lol

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Didn’t you try the boscia mask too, @lmaster? I still cringe when I think of my one (and only) pink peel off mask from them 😰

yes I did and literally threw it in the garbage @eshoe it...

yes I did and literally threw it in the garbage @eshoe it made my eyes burn and I would never even get it close to my eyes, I was so disappointed

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

UGH! @lmaster Thanks for the honest feedback! I'm scared to try this....one of the reviews I watched said to make sure you are careful around hair and peach fuzz. I"m nervous about it. 

I would imo go without the lace mask, and just apply the...

I would imo go without the lace mask, and just apply the actually peel off mask, if you dare to try it. my skin really wasn't irritated, it just hurt so bad lol @Lazybeautybeast

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I had tried the OLEHENRIKSEN - Cold Plunge Pore Maskawhile back and wasn't overly impressed but I was "shopping my stash" and found a sample of it so I decided to try it again and I actually like it now better than I did initially.  Still not going to be an HG mask for me but it was a fun change!

@CookieGirl1, I really enjoyed this mask. They have the combo pack with the mask and a facial scrub that's $39 and mask by itself was $36! I ordered it today

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

The smurf mask 😄 This one sounds like it would be nice to have on hand for a hot day, that cooling effect sounds refreshing @CookieGirl1!

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@bakeamuffin I love that you remembered it was my "smurf mask" Smiley Happy

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I couldn’t forget @CookieGirl1, it was so adorable and fun! 😄

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@CookieGirl1 it sounds so nice, the whole cooling effect, especially in the summer! Have you tried the Farmacy Honey Potion in the winter? So good!😊
