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!

I haven't tried the gold mask yet, although I've been eyeing it for awhile! I do have the PTR Camu Camu Power C mask and tbh, I've been pretty disappointed. I used it at night consistently for over a month and noticed no changes in my skin. Every body reacts differently so you still might want to give a sample a try; my sister also shared Costco sells it at half the price 🙂

I've been pleased with Tatcha Violet-C radiance mask and even used it while I sleep!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thanks @Aaliaa @myinsidevoice @Nikki @spacelama and others 

will check out those places.

 

I am looking for masks for some help with hyper pigmentation/ melasma and unevenskin tone. Hydration of course is good anytime 😊

I realized today that I have - couple of egg masks too cool for school from kits I bought. Also have delux size Laneig mask plus couple of charcoal masks (Boscia & Origin) from sub boxes.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@naturalooks15,

CVS has some good K-beauty sheet masks at economical prices - the Peach Slices line has some good ones.  Urban Outfitters occasionally has sales on sheet masks.  If you are online at Ulta or in the store, I'd recommend Leaders or TonyMoly - Ulta usually has a sale on sheet masks.  Hautelook.com is having a sale on Leaders sheet masks at the moment.  masksheets.com has some great prices for sheet masks as well.  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I like Beauteque for sheet masks! They have a great assortment and often do promos with free gifts or discounts. Right now there are doing 30% off.  @naturalooks15

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@naturalooks15 I usually get most of my sheet masks from The Face Shop 🙂 They have great deals on them all the time!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Starting to get into the face shop! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@SpaceLlama agreed! i buy the face shop on amazon, such a good deal and i love the masks!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Hey @naturalooks15! I've never actually tried the 'Camu Camu Power CX30 Vit C Brighetung sleeping mask' but given the packaging, I'd be surprised if the benefits of Vitamin C actually make it to the skin. I have a mini 24K Gold mask, but I haven't tried it yet. 

If you have a specific issue you would like masks to help, I'm sure we could give you some recommendations. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@naturalooks15 I really enjoy the 24k masks in the winter for hydration, but it depends on what you're looking for and I haven't tried the camu. At ulta I usually go for tony moly in the "drugstore" side, I've never bought anything I can't read. I'm sure there's lots of other good things there but I am a little snobby about my masks!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Last night I brought out the CosRx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask. The weather has been so cold and dry here this week, so this was a nice treat. It's not too thick and went on well. No discernible scent, a little tacky but not sticky. I felt like it sealed in all of my previous skincare steps nicely. This morning, my skin feels pretty smooth and there may be a slight decrease in some redness. I'm planning to use this over the next several weeks, so we'll see if there are any good lasting effects. Tonight I'll probably pull out one of my Fresh Rose Mask foils- love that mask! 

 

ETA- promise to put some pics in the future- just got a new phone and have to get all the kinks worked out haha! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Tonight I used PTR Blue Algae Mask. It used to do good, but I'm not noticing anything anymore. Does anyone know how long these PTR masks are usually good for? Mine has been burning my face lately.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thats weird, as @heartsmyface mentioned, did you use a peel or strong acid before using the mask? Since it is a hydrating mask I would be careful if it tingles when you use it just on its own.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I’ve never tried blue algae, but the pumpkin enzyme is one of my all time favorites - the jar typically lasts around a year for me. Sometimes, if I use a mask and it burns that means that my skin is super dry or flakey. Possibly this is what happened for you?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Hmmm, have you done any face peels or exfoliating recently?  That may explain any burning in an unexpired product.  Also, if you’ve been using it for a while, maybe you’re already receiving the full benefits of the mask thus not seeing any further improvement.  It could still be doing its job. Just some thoughts.  @Samtian. I’ve had the cucumber mask for a while now (over a year) and it still works.  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Great idea for a thread!   I like sheet masking daily already so this is right up my alley!  This  was my New Years post drinking sheet mask.  I may or may not have still been drunk.  It’s the Face in Face Foil Mask in Gold.  Super moisturizing and fun to wear.  It’s a two piece mask which I really enjoy cause they tend to fit better.  I’ll definitely be buying more of these!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@heartsmyface Omg, you have all the fun masks!  You look like a superhero!  I love it!! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Thats so interesting @heartsmyface, I've never actually tried a foil mask before but its definitely on my list. Where did you get this mask from?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Aaliaa  I got this one in Hong Kong but I did manage to find four packs of the platinum version on Amazon:) 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

This mask looks like it’s so fun to wear! You look adorable @heartsmyface!! 💙💙

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

“I may or may not have still been drunk” hahaha!

RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

After the Holidays it was my hair that needed hydrating!!!! But to be honest- tonight I did a charcoal mask, a Karuna sheet mask, a Karuna hand mask, and a Sephora hair, lip, & eye mask from the Holy Sheet Mask collection! That’s SIX MASKS in one night!
