Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi I'm actually going to try to get a sample from Sephora πŸ™‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@QueenMarceline, yaaay! πŸ˜ƒ That’ll definitely give your an idea if a full size should make its way into you shopping cart for the sale! You’ll have to let us know how you like it. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi I definitely will πŸ™‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Oh, I've got a sample of that Belif sleeping mask that I need to work in, @itsfi. I'm glad to see that it worked out nicely for you!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@quspork, I was surprised by the belif sleeping mask. I do think it’s better when the weather is warmer, which will hopefully not be too much longer before that happens. Will be interested to hear your thoughts on it. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi I read this before I went to bed, so then I had that song stuck in my head. You are so good at connecting things to themes. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Samtian, it's definitely one of those tunes that you can keep replaying over and over once you hear it. It happened a few times for me: when the theme came to mind, when I took the photo, put up the post, etc., etc. Thank you! Coming up with tie-ins to the theme has been fun and gives me a chance to have a bit of a creative outlet, along with taking pics. That latter one may be something I look into more when things settle down. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi Taking pics is the best thing in the world! Editing them not so much πŸ˜„

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Maybe I’ll just take the pics, @Samtian? πŸ€ͺ Nah, I have to learn about it all, right?!. You know, I don’t think I ever asked, how did you  become interested in photography? Your photos are beautiful! 😍

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi If you aren't interested in mostly being a purist wildlife photographer yeah you'll need to learn editing lol. Growing up I would go to my grandma's every summer and usually Thanksgiving and Christmas, anyways she always had a bunch of Nat Geo magazines. I'd sit behind her chair and just look at the pics for a long time. I just really really love looking at pictures lol. And thank you so so much!! 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Hahaha! Okay @Samtian, editing will be part of the education. πŸ˜† That’s such a sweet story (and memory); it’s easy to love looking at photos - it can be so calming. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi Thank you! I'm always here if you have any questions or anything. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Samtian, thank you! I’m sure I will have plenty of questions. First I need to find some time to get started and learn the basics. My photographing efforts thus far have been limited to taking random pics of things I find interesting when I’m out and about, like flowers or a pic of a building, of my niece playing soccer, or my masking and hauling escapades. πŸ˜† 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi hahaha that's how it starts!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Oh @itsfi! These all sound so nice, particularly the LuLuLun. Please let me know if it comes in a mask pask!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint, it would be great if those LuLuLun masks came in a pack, but that may be more wishful thinking. I read that these can be used up to 2-3 times per week so it doesn't sound like they're intended to be used every day but I have to say that this time of year, the creamy, oil based serum in this mask could be really nourishing as an every day mask for my skin.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  I love that your mask line-up is in coordination with the Jackson 5 song! That is one of those songs that just gets stuck your head πŸ˜‰

 

All three of the sheet masks sound wonderful! I definitely know how it feels to fall in love something that's expensive! Lately, everything I love is either super expensive or discontinued πŸ˜…

I love that the brightening from Cocochi mask lasted so long. That's pretty rare for a sheet mask!

That Origins mask is one of my favorites! It smells and feels so good! Have you tried the Apricot one? That's a nice one too πŸ™‚ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Shosh85, it's such a catchy tune which made using these masks even more fun. 

 

I was really surprised by how long the results from the Cocochi mask lasted - not complaining at all, just surprised. Oh, tell me about it. It's interesting how the masks we go for or the trends in our mask purchasing change over time, isn't it? I have found over the last couple of years that more and more of the masks I pick up have been discontinued with much more frequency than in the past. I'm not sure why that is the case, but there have been quite a few really good or great masks that I've used that are no longer in production - and it's not even that I purchased them that long ago. 

 

Yes, I have tried the apricot version of the Origins mask - it smells so good. That version and this one could be part of a samples-turned-purchase theme for me. There are a small few Origins masks I would repurchase and those two are included in that group. Has the apricot version been discontinued?

 

 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Well crap @itsfi! It does look like it might be discontinued! 😩 All the sites I see it on say it's "unavailable" ☹️

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Grrrrr πŸ˜– @Shosh85, I see it available through eBay and Mercari, as well as Harrods which would make it a mighty expensive mask after factoring in shipping fees. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

One more mask for the Hydrating Heroes theme..... also, E for Electrolyte πŸ˜‰

 

Thanks to @itsfi for introducing me to the Vitamasques brand!
