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.

There are 2 ways to edit a response:

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.

Mask of the Week Challenge!

Finally found a weird mask for this week's challenge. The Dr. BrandtMegnetight magnet mask. I saw @fieldsofclover mentioned it which remindedme I had a DS from a Sephora Favorite set. I have tried this mask before and, honestly, I do not recommend it. It is fun to try once but after that it is just a lot of work, IMO. I'm not a fan of masks that youcan't wash or blot off. Anyway, my skin is going a light crazy this week so I also used the Fresh Lotus Rescue Mask and a foil a Sephora Collection Mud Mask.

RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I have the Lotus mask to try and I’m really excited I received the deluxe sample from Sephora. I really like all of the fresh masks, my faves are the black tea and the rose.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Oooh @Lazybeautybeast you like the Fresh lotus mask? I'm thinking about putting the promo in my next order.

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Hi @fieldsofclover, def get the promo.  I really liked this mask, even tho I find the rest of the lotus line kind of meh.  

I had some dry patches on my face - the mask hydrated and softened,  and the seaweed pieces helped scrub and smooth the flaky patches off. Pleasantly surprised by it!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@fieldsofclover I like the Ren calming mask more but the promo is fantastic way to try it! I got it in BIC Gratis in November and I feel like I never gave it a fair shot. I've only used it twice. I'm forcing myself to use it a few more times and pay closer attention to the results. However, my mom loves it. I say get the promo. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Lazybeautybeast @fieldsofclover Can you wash it off? I'm guessing the benefits are more limited but how does it work without the magnet?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@AaliaaIf I wasn't going to use the magnet I would only take this off with one of those PTR mask taskers. It was kind of messy (I used my silicone mask brush and it was ok, but hard to even clean off of that) and I would actually worry about getting iron filings in my eyes if I tried to splash it off with water.

 

It would probably take half a box of tissues to get off that way and you would be super annoyed. Better to get a bigger magnet, or as a last resort scrape it off mask-tasker-style and use the magnet to get the leftover bits.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks! I'm just going to step away and NOT add this to my list since I got 2 masks yesterday, I don't think I have the patience for this. 

@Aaliaa The How to Use page says do not use water. I gues...

@Aaliaa The How to Use page says do not use water. I guess you could probably just wipe it off with a tissue though.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This mask is not too weird, but it’s my first time trying it so I thought I’d post. It’s a Dead Sea Wash-off Mask from Ipsy. It’s comfortable to wear, as it doesn’t dry down so doesn’t pull on my skin. CE9B9971-54EC-41B0-A622-A2217649F15D.jpegmask by Global Beauty Care

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Guessgal wait, a clay/mud mask that doesn't dry down? What do you think of it now that you've had it off for a while?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@fieldsofclover  I just saw this! Yes, I’ve previously had it on for an hour but it doesn’t harden... it kinda has a “barely there” feeling. My skin feels smoother and squeaky clean after using it, but I don’t find there are visually noticeable differences unfortunately.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

My mask is so weird I don't even know how to explain it right! This came in the Sephora Favorites mask set from last fall... I still have it because it looks like a lot of work 😂 I don't think the full size sold well because I saw it at Costco a couple weeks ago for 30% under retail.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

UPDATE: I don't know what kind of dark magic is in that mask, but the two milia on my forehead are almost invisible now and another little bump I've had on my cheek for years (smaller after DDG peels) is really flattened! Not a pore refining mask or anything like that but it did some heavy lifting. 

 

I didn't even finish the rest of my routine afterward, just went to bed and passed out, so I only had the mask serum on my face overnight. Needed to wash my face in the morning of course but it wasn't weird or oily on me. My skin just looks... better now somehow. Wild.

 

ymmv for sure... I went in with super low expectations for gimmicky bs but I will be buying a full size of this. I'll probably wait until it's on sale but I can see myself paying retail if I kept using it. I will definitely be using my own magnet from now on though!

 

Also: a lot of reviewers used waxed paper or other things to cover the magnet instead of a tissue... I used parchment paper (the baking kind) and it worked out really well.

RE: Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I always wanted to try this one just because it looked neat haha - but I was deciding between two of those mask favorites sets and I ended up going with this other one. But definitely looks like it was a lot of work

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This one, oh boy.  Messy but fun.  I kinda felt like the magnetic part was just sealing the product against the skin for the duration of the mask so it wouldn’t just evaporate.  I rememeber  my skin feeling greasy after getting the magnet off and it not really absorbing.  It just felt soft because of the film.  

I still enjoyed the process regardless of how gimmicky.  @fieldsofclover

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Well, it did take ages to remove... @Aaliaa your mom is right! I swear it took like 45 minutes. Phew.

 

But I think this mask is good for my marriage? lol 

I had my husband come take a look while I was putting it on (I'm super anemic right now so I was joking about deciding to just smear iron filings all over my face)... then about half an hour later he helped me take the whole thing off because we were both so entertained by it 👨‍🔬👩‍🔬🔬💆

 

I don't think I would have the patience to do this more than every couple weeks, but as long as I don't wake up breaking out tomorrow I would buy a full-size to keep around for occasional entertainment. Hopefully it does something amazing overnight too... the reviews are pretty good.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I wonder if you could just buy a stronger, bigger magnet. the ELF magnet is actually much better (according to YT videos!) @fieldsofclover

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Aaliaa  I'll definitely get a bigger magnet next time. I think my parents have the perfect candidate on their fridge, actually 🤔

Omg. I totally agree @fieldsofclover! This mask is so muc...

Omg. I totally agree @fieldsofclover! This mask is so much work. I've tried it several times, it is just not worth it in my opinion. It funny you mention your husband. My BF was the same way. 😆 He asked what it was, then watch me take it off, then wanted to help me take off, then wanted to use it himself. 😂 The only positive feedback I have about it is that it is fun to bond over well you spend time taking it off.

Re: Omg. I totally agree @fieldsofclover! This mask is so muc...

@Lazybeautybeast Yes there's something weirdly compelling about it for some people? While he was doing the magnet-ing part DH was like "I don't know how the mask is but this is actually kind of therapeutic... for me." 🕉️🤷
