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!

Week 4 - Jan 21 - 27 - Letter D - Clean Week

 

Monday Morning Detox

IMG_3842.JPGD is for Detox

 

Spoiler
The PETER THOMAS ROTH - FIRMx™ Peeling Gel and Jo Malone Vitamin E Lip Conditioner have made multiple appearances on this thread this year and last year. The Creme Shop Badtz-Maru Detox Rocks! Sheet Mask is a new one to me, a gift from the fabulous @Shosh85 - thank you!! Notable ingredients are charcoal (deep cleanse) and black mud (pore minimizer). Like the other TCS Hello Kitty sheet mask, this cotton one feels maybe slightly thicker than your standard sheet mask. It has a light charcoal ombre hue to it and contains cute illustrations of Bad Badtz-Maru, thunder bolts, a guitar and music notes in black, white and yellow. The material over the upper lip is very thin; this normally would pose an issue, but it seemed really thin on this mask, so I just cut the part of the mask that was too long at the chin and placed that on my upper lip area - problem solved. I needed to make some adjustments to the inner and outer corners of the eyes as well, a little more than what I typically do, but again, not a big deal. 

Directions say to leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes, but I kept it on for about half an hour and when I removed the mask, there was still quite a bit of essence sitting on top of my face waiting to be absorbed. I patted in the remaining essence into my skin and applied the extra in the packet to my arms and legs. The essence absorbed quickly and smoothly - no tackiness and my skin felt clean, soft and so smooth. Interestingly, my skin also felt nicely moisturized. It's winter and my skin is dehydrated-dry so I know better than to forego my moisturizer, but just based on how my skin felt, I might have been persuaded to do so - so soft and smooth and moisturized. A very pleasant surprise and one that earns this mask a "A".

Monday Evening Masking

IMG_4128.JPGD is for DHC Rich Eye Zone Care Pack and Drunk Elephant Babyfacial, which also fits this week "clean" theme

 

Spoiler
I can't believe I only started using DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial™ late last year! It's one of those products that lives up to the hype. It's an "A+" all the way. Leaders Aquaringer Treatment Mask is one of my all time favorite masks; it's just so good for hydrating the skin; always an "A" mask. 

The DHC Rich Eye Zone Care Pack contain 6 pairs of eye masks. While most eye masks are designed to treat the under eye area, these masks cover the entire eye, which may present a little problem for me, since I generally do not like to have masks cover my eyelids. Yeah, I was feeling a little nervous... The essence to these masks is a cream rather than a liquid-y serum, which helps alleviate some of my anxieties over having essence run into my eyes. What also makes me feel a little better is that these masks are covered with just enough cream to cover the masks - no oversaturated mask, no extra dripping everywhere. 

The eye masks adhere very well and are meant to be left on for 10 minutes and, to my surprise, I was okay with keeping them on while doing various things around the house. I will say though that while the shape of these eye masks were fine for me, I can see someone with larger eyes than mine finding the shape to be a tad uncomfortable. These eye masks contain multi-peptides, olive fruit oil and hyaluronic acid, which sound great for hydrating and moisturizing the eye area.  I'm going to hold off on giving these eye masks a grade until I see how the results hold up tomorrow morning and after I use them at least once more, but so far, so good. Smiley Happy

 

those eye masks sound great @itsfi

those eye masks sound great @itsfi

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi oooh those Sanrio themed masks seem like a hit around here. I def need to pick some up. I will definitely look out for your review on the eye mask when you've had more time to try them. I love eye masks but yes, a little anxiety of putting them around the entire eye. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@GalPalVal17, these eye masks seem to be okay - they’re not saturated with cream so it’s not dripping down my eye which I’m happy about. I’ll let you know how it goes after I use them again. 😃

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

omg what a cute sheet mask @itsfi ! they always do packaging well!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Kim888, I’m very pleasantly surprised by the Hello Kitty collaboration. The masks are cute and they perform well! 😃 The packaging is adorable too!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I'm coming to realize that most of the Cream Shop masks seem to be good ones.  I'm looking forward to your review on the eye masks!  They look kind of cool with that shape! @itsfi

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie, The Creme Shop has a lot of good sheet masks. It’s nice too that they can be found in different stores too - TJ Maxx, Riley Rose, and you can order the eye mask online at Walgreens and pick them up in the store. The DHC eye masks may be my surprise hit of the week! 😊

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi, Batz is so cute!  The PETER THOMAS ROTH - FIRMx™ Peeling Gel, is something I must try.  Philosophy had a peeling gel I loved, but it was discontinued. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@byme4u, do give the PTR peeling gel a try. You can sometimes find deluxe samples in one of the Sephora Favorites mask or skincare sets. It’s the best I’ve tried. 😃

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

That's really interesting about the cs mask... how moisturized your skin felt. I can't wait to try mine!!! Might have to look into that leaders mask as well. Smiley Very Happy  I'm with you and masks covering my eyelids... not something I like. But it does sound like they have good ingredients. Curious to find out how you'll grade it! @itsfi

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I was really surprised as well @veronika23. I kept wondering if I had already applied my moisturizer but nope.

I find that Leaders mask to be very hydrating 💦  but if you dislike really saturated sheet mask, you should pass on it because the sheet mask is full of essence. I’m really intrigued by the DHC eye masks, more so than I thought I would be. I’ve been putting them off since I saw the design - which I probably should have paid more attention to before I actually bought them. LOL! 😂 But they are pretty good.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi Besides the fit on these, the Sanrio masks seem pretty good so far! I wouldn't have guessed this would be moisturizing at all! I pulled this one out for possible masks to try this week as well! 👌

If been hearing about that PTR Peeling Gel a lot on here! It is now on my list (my very long list, haha) of things to try! 😉

Thise eye masks look interesting! I haven't seen them in that shape before! I'd be interested in hearing your final thoughts on them!👍

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Shosh85, it takes a little work to get the right fit on these Hello Kitty masks but it's not too bad. I wouldn't reach for them on a busy morning; they're definitely better for those days when I'm not in a rush to get through my routine and out the door.  Will definitely keep you posted on the DHC eye masks; I think I might try to use it again a couple more times this week.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi I've only tried a couple of masks from the Sanrio line so far, but I do remember the fit not being the best! Usually though, if it gives good enough results, I can look past the fit! When you're in a rush, arts-and-crafts-masking just isn't ideal! Haha! 😂

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Tonights mask on the menu for "D" and/or "clean" week is my most favorite hand cream brand in the world Delectable. And for my clean mask-Ren 1 minute facial. My lemon is on its last leg but I got plenty more flavors including another lemon waiting. Now onto the Ren...🤔😐 I dont know how I feel about it. My skin is behaving for the most part but it was late so I wanted something new but quick. So Ren, it is. It smells like OJ 🍊 that went bad. It comes out liquid but turns into gel-like when you add water. I didnt get any kind of tingle/burn (it tells you to spot test) but my skin isn't sensitive. I left it on while I was shampooing my hair. It takes more than a min. I got long hair 😉. When I rinsed it off, it felt like it was leaving a residue that's slimy-im not a big fan of residue. So I rinsed again. This time my skin did feel smooth. By the time I got out of the shower (which was quick 15 min tops) & dried my face off with a towel. I didnt feel the smoothness. I didn't feel stripped, if anything I felt dry. And I got oily skin!😲 I was a bit shocked tbh. I went in with almost 3 pumps of my AP creme fluid, it corrected it thank goodness 😘. This was my first Ren product. I only had that 1 lil foil, I think this would be something I would have to use at least a ds to see if it does anything. I didnt see the glow/luminous effect, but happy to have it out of my stash 😉20190121_220158.jpgClean/"D" week

it did sound interesting @lmaster Ren has a promo right now😚 I saw it on the promo thread

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@sonnydee i got super excited when you said it smelled like oj and then i realized you said it like expired juice. Disappointing that it dried you out too

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yeah, @Kim888 it smelled like the OJ that gets lost in the back of the fridge. It didnt make me gag or anything but I am a mom of 4...so not alot of stuff makes me gag anymore!🤣 the drying out was a bit of a shock.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@sonnydee Ipsy introduced me to this hand cream as well.  I went through a tube of the mint pretty quick and I agree, it was moisturizing, left a fantastic scent and wasn't too greasy.  Thanks for reminding me that I like it!
