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

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!

@SpaceLlama me too! I would try it for sure if it were available to us, the overnight mask seems amazing!  

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@SpaceLlama, that Glow Recipe Watermelon Mask lasts forever, doesn’t it? Curious, do you ever leave it on overnight? It’s such a thin mask, but pretty powerful.

Re: RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Sorry for the late response, @eshoe! I do wear it overnight 😄 My face sticks to my pillow a bit and there's product residue on my face in the morning, but the results are worth it. Mine seems to be getting used up quite fast compared to when I used the Laneige sleeping mask. This one does have a thicker consistency, so I guess I tend to pick up more product. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@SpaceLlama I was curious about the Lush masks! Too bad this one wasn’t what you hoped for!

The Philosophy mask sounds like something I’d like! Another one to add to my list! 👌

I’ve heard nothing but positive reviews on that Watermelon Sleeping mask– I really need to try it out one of these days! I’m glad it could come to your rescue!! 👍 🍉

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I'm still curious about the Lush jelly face masks, @Shosh85. I still haven't tried those. They don't have clay, so they might suit me much better! If ever you try this one or another one of their's, please let me know how you found it! 😄

 

The watermelon mask is quite lovely. It's thicker than the Laneige sleeping mask and it's a bit tackier. I do prefer the Laneige one just a smidge more since it really sinks into my skin and doesn't have any residue in the morning, but both work really well! 

@SpaceLlama, I'm glad the Watermelon sleeping mask rescue...

@SpaceLlama, I'm glad the Watermelon sleeping mask rescued your skin!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This is a great selection of masks @SpaceLlama!  Sorry to hear about the Lush mask being so drying; good thing you had the Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask to hydrate your skin.  The Philosophy masks look really good. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Feeling like part of the gang, I came across this Creme Shop masks at Winners a few days ago. I'm not sure if I've just tried the wrong ones but this didn't wow me. I got a little serum into my eye and it really burned to the point I had to remove the mask and wash my eyes out. I I then reapplied the mask and it was fine so not sure what happened there 🤷🏽‍♀️! As a charcoal mask I was worried it might be drying but it hydrated my skin while the charcoal helped with pores. I didn't notice any change in pore size, but I used it at night so didn't mind either way. I'm going to keep a look out for the 2-in-1 masks and yogurt ones to try next.

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Aaliaa, I saw that mask on my first attempt to locate a Crème Shop mask at TJ Maxx. I passed because my skin is so dry, that I want my masks to be pretty much all about hydration. Sorry it didn’t work out for you!

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Eeks @Aaliaa. Sorry to hear about your eyes! I am seriously getting over this charcoal trend. It just doesn’t do it for me either...time to move on to the next trend please!!!....

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Aaliaa Sorry this didn't work out well for you! I bet that did burn when it got in your eye!😟 That sucks that it didn't help with pore size! That's why I use charcoal masks for!! Maybe you'll have better luck with another type of Creme mask!😉

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

That is such a bummer @Aaliaa! I’m sorry it didn’t work out well for you, such a disappointment. I hope you come acorss the fusion masks soon, since thoes ones sound so nice! I’m still holding out hope for you 🤞🏻😊

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Aaliaa Man, you’ve had some bad luck with these! I purposely haven’t bought this one yet, only because the all-charcoal products tend to overly dry me out! 

The fusion masks are a great place to start! These are definitely my favorite out of all the Creme Shop masks! Hope you can try a good one soon! 🤗

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I know right @Shosh85! I mean EVERYONE loves them so I just feel like I'm doing something wrong.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I agree with @itsfi– like any other mask or skincare item, you got find the right one for your skin. There has been a couple I’ve run into as well that I will probably not try again! I hope you’re able to find a good one soon! 🙏😉 @Aaliaa

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Aaliaa, for the most part, The Creme Shop masks have been fab, but there are some that just have not worked out well for me - the resveratrol one and the pink lemonade one in particular come to mind.  Just have to find the right ones for your skin. Smiley Happy

The Creme Shop Dead Sea Mud Mask with French Pink Clay + Rosehip Oil
 First of all, I wish I would’ve remembered this mask yesterday when I was trying out The Creme Shop Rose Water Sheet Mask! That would’ve been a great combo! 👌
This mask was light pink in color, had a very nice creamy consistency with a pleasant smell of roses. 🌹😊
After I brushed it on and started waiting, I could feel this mask hardening. Like most clay masks it dried so much, if I moved my face the mask would flake everywhere –so definitely not my favorite, but it did smell like roses the entire time, haha! After about 10 minutes it completely dried down to a pale pink color and my face looked like the texture of elephant skin, haha! 🐘😂 I rinsed it off using a wash cloth because it doesn’t come off too easy just splashing water on it- (it’s hard to get rid of all the pink tint without a wash cloth.) The first thing I noticed after washing it off was how much brighter my face was! It was SOOO smooth and soft, I couldn’t stop touching it, haha! Like most clay masks though, it left my skin feeling pretty dry and I felt the need to moisturize right away. So, I don’t like the drying stage of the mask and I don’t like how dry it left my face feeling, but man, my face was sure soft, smooth and bright! 🙌
After the mud mask I decided to follow up with the BioBelle #Beauty Secret Face Mask for some much needed hydration. This  mask is pretty thin cotton and was heavy, but not dripping, with serum. It smelled refreshing, like a light, sweet fruity scent. Surprisingly this mask fit almost perfectly– just the eye holes were a little smaller than I prefer. It was very comfortable and soothing to wear. I had it on for about 30 minutes. I removed it and my face felt so refreshed! After the remaining serum was absorbed, my face felt soft, smooth and hydrated! The hydration even seemed to last throughout the day 👌🤗

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85, the elephant skin syndrome is part of the reason I fell in love with Josie Maran’s Argan Mud Masks-they don’t harden and terrify me when I look in the mirror 😂

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ohhh!! These look great @Shosh85! I don’t think I’ve ever seen these masks before???

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This is great info to have about these masks @Shosh85!  I'll have to try The Creme Shop pink clay mask and the Rose Water mask combo you mentioned - that sounds amazing.  Sorry that the clay mask was so drying, but glad to hear the results are great! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thank you so much, @itsfi!! I really think that pair of masks would be great together! 🙌
