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.

Merry Masking!

 

Mask of the Week Challenge!

I really wanted to try one of my new leaders sheet masks but this Dr. Jart mask has been in my collection so long that I had to check the expiration date...so I decided to be good and use it first. It is pretty nice. I love that it is in two pieces because I always have a hard time getting full sheets to lay flat on my face.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Lazybeautybeast

I agree - I have an easier time with sheet masks that are 2-pieces.

 

Excellent point about expiration dates; thank you!  I need to go through my stash of sheet masks and see if there are any that are close to expiring and use those up first. 

Mask of the Week Challenge!

I'm doing it. I'M GOING TO SHEET MASK. They freak me out..but let's give 'er a go!

RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

YAyyyy!!! I haven’t used this one, but Dr. Jart has some great sheet masks! Let us know how you like it @GG84

RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Well not technically a sheet mask but sort of a sheet pore strip. And multi-masking as well, so getting in on last week’s fun. But sharing anyway. Step 1: Dr. Jart Pore Master Patch Part 1 + Caudalie Instant Detox Mask to deeply cleanse. Step 2: Dr. Jart Pore Master Patch Step 2 + Fresh Rose Face Mask for hydrating and toning! I love this two step combo for deep cleansing and detoxifying and then soothing and repairing any irritation before I go to bed. First mask and pore strip dry really stiff but step 2 feels super luxe and so hydrating. Also I think my pore strip part 2 might have been on upside down? 🤷🏻‍♀️

Re: RE: Mask of the Week Challenge!

@AngeliqueR

Your 2-step combo sounds amazing! Deep cleansing, detoxifying, soothing, hydrating AND toning? That checks off all the boxes! 🙂 I'm definitely going to try your mask combo. Thank you for sharing.

Mask of the Week Challenge!

Multi-masking! This one was hard for me; I don't think I've ever multi-masked before. I don't know that I'd buy full sizes of any of these. I did the Wrinkle Smoother around my eyes and down my neck, the Thirstymud on my cheeks and forehead, the clarifying mask on my nose and chin, and lip mask on my lips (obviously. lol).

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Ooh, I love the Thirstymud but my skin is pretty dry.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

So I tried the FAB jelly mask yesterday... I put it on and then sat at my computer to work for a while and forgot about it! I had it on for about 90 minutes instead of 10 like it said. Whoops! It dried down in a way that seemed sort of like a serum, but when I went to rinse it off it rehydrated and turned into the full jelly layer again which was cool 👩‍🔬

 

I was kind of meh about trying it but my skin seemed to be pretty happy with it, and the aromatherapy part of smelling like a raw juicing bar was fun (why I tried it in the AM). I'd buy this... it's going on the post-stash replenishment list.PhotoGrid_1517412191438.png

 

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I finally figured out what bothered me about it, though... it sounds silly but I really hate the hot pink next to the orange tint of the mask! I wish they had put it in a cobalt-colored tub or something. The mask looks weirdly dingy in the package.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

IMG_1249.JPGI can't say I really have any weird face masks so this jelly mask was about as weird as I could get.  I bought this when it first came out and it's been hanging out in my fridge way too long. (Not because it isn't good but more because it keeps getting shoved behind food.)

 

It's less jello-like vs. their shower jellies.  Almost like an insanely thick pudding. I like the scent and how it feels on my skin (as well as the longer shelf life vs. their fresh masks), but the jelly part is just a gimmick for me.  I find it messier to have to warm it between my hands before applying to my face and seem to end up with chunks in the sink and on the counter.  These days I've been worked to the bone and don't even have the time to do a long mask ritual (it's sad when skincare feels like work) so this extra step feels like too much to me these days.

 

That said, this week should be a little lighter as I switch schedules for my side hustle job so hopefully it'll be a perfect week to multi-mask.  (And I have a pesky pimple on my cheek so sadly multitasking also makes sense right now. 😞 )

 

I do my Lush jelly masks in the bath! They don't really d...

I do my Lush jelly masks in the bath! They don't really dry so it doesn't seem to affect them. I have Bunnymoon, Just to Clarify, and another one for redness that I forget the name of right now and I like to multimask them all at the same time. It makes it easy to clean up afterwards because I rinse the tub out when I'm all done anyways 🙂 hopefully that helps!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Last nights masks. Started with the Ren glycolactic radiance and finished with the calming.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I just got my REN Glycolic mask a few days ago, can't wait to try it with so many ladies raving about it!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

These are the lip masks/treatments I used this week.
IMG_6086[1].JPG

I use the bite lip mask almost every night and I like the Kaplan MD and Glamglow since they exfoliate without being to harsh.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

I love Kaplan MD products!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Yesterday was a good day for masking. I started in the morning with the Glam Glow Youthmud and my skin LOVED it. I haven't used it for years and my pores and blackheads felt cleaned and smoothed out. I'm going to keep an eye out for samples for this one! I followed this with the Glam Glow FlashMud Brightening mask. At first I thought it didn't do much, but later I noticed my skin was definitely glowing. Then in the evening I used a Danielle Sheet mask that I picked up from Winners. A good go to mask for me.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Sounds like a great day of masking @Aaliaa!  I do love the YouthMud mask; will have to bring that back into the rotation.  I have a DS of the FlashMud Brightening Mask but have not opened it up yet.  Good to know that it brightens - will have to try that one out soon. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Week 2: Brand Week - GlamGlow and REN

Glam Glow.jpgREN.jpg

 

I used three GlamGlow masks Wednesday night – SuperMud Clearing Treatment along my jawline and neck, to get rid of these little breakouts/bumps that showed up unexpectedly and YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Treatment on my T-zone to suck up the excess oil.  Once I washed those off, I slathered GlamGlow ThirstyMud Hydrating Mask all over my face and neck and used it like an overnight mask – woke up to soft, clear skin and looked refreshed. 

 

 

Tonight, to close out Week 2, I went with the REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask and followed that up with the Skinceuticals Hydrating Mask, which I'm also using as an overnight mask.  After the REN mask, my face looked clear, felt smooth and refreshed. The Skinceuticals mask will keep my skin hydrated through the night.

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Great mask choices @myinsidevoice! I ordered the Ren mask last week and really excited to try it!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge!

Mask of choice today from a TopBox I got recently. Its 'airplane soap' scented so not sure if I would recommend it.IMG_1032.jpg
