To Post:

Each week features a different theme, as well as a letter of the alphabet for coming up with new masking ideas. 


Please include the brand and name of the mask you are trying out, as well as a photo if possible. Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase. Don't forget to include a grade (thanks to @ShortErica for the idea) to help others along the way.


Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks so much @Shosh85. It was a nice treat.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thats one classy looking mask @PrettyPaint !

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Haha! I know. I felt like I should be going out somewhere afterwards. In reality I just stayed home in yoga pants.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint What a gorgeous mask!   I'm glad to hear it was hydrating. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@tjffc  Thanks so much! I always get excited when a mask has a print. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Now, that is an artistic mask @PrettyPaint! Gorgeous!! ๐Ÿ˜ Sorry it gave your skin the itchies. Hopefully no other adverse effects from it. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I was glad I was able to find it in my nearby stash for the week! ๐Ÿ™‚  My skin is doing fine currently, so no negative reactions. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

B for Black

This came from a MOTM box & I love Erno so I was really looking forward to it & have been looking for it at the TJ/M I visit

 

Fit? Its a 2 part,slippery mask that sandwiched between layers. If you are a frequent masker, its no trouble-you are pretty used it it by now. Some of the reviews however must not be frequent maskers. They knocked off stars for this ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜’

 

Smell? It was just last night. And I don't remember. ๐Ÿ˜‚ it was pleasant enough

 

Consistency? The mask itself is black. The serum is on the thicker side, almost gel like. It as net like texture on one side, i guess to hold the serum better

 

Ease of use?no issues. I think i left this on about 40 min..i couldve went longer. I did have some pilling on my neck but the everything soaked in eventually with very little tack

 

Would I  purchase/try again? I did have some tingling, not unpleasant but noticeable. {From past experiences I take note & pay attention in case it gets worse. It didn't & actually went away. My pores did look smaller after removing. I think will continue to look for it as a set in a box at a TJ or M.  @@ a deal, in other words would make me pick this mask up. I don't think I would pay full price for 1 mask. You can get the same immediate results with a much cheaper mask. Can't say whether or not long term results. I did like it though. Thank you to whoever put it in. ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee sounds like a pretty nice one! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  I've tried a few of these and I feel the same as you about them - they're nice masks, but not nice enough to pay retail prices. Glad it worked out well for you! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 i don't think i have tried a expensive mask that i would pay full price for yet.๐Ÿค”

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Yup, me too. I used a $50 sheet mask (I only paid 50 cents each ๐Ÿ˜‰) and I didn't think it was any better than some of the $2 masks I've tried. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm with you on the Erno Laszlo products @sonnydee, I generally quite like them, but the retail prices on the masks are too rich for my blood.  I have however loved finding them from time to time at TJ's.  I haven't tried the black one, but I'm assuming its the same mask material as the Pink/Blue/White.  I could see where someone who doesn't mask often would have trouble, but I thought they fit great. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Me too. I love the 2 layer ones! @missjeanie I have found the erno masks that are wash off i think but have yet to find a box of sheet masks. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ hopefully one day soon! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Sounds decent - glad it shrunk pores somewhat. And I'm glad I'm not the only one that can't remember what a mask smelled like. ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint ๐Ÿ˜‚ I smelled it later & it was strong but typical sheet mask smell. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

This sounds like a good one @sonnydee. I like that your pores looked smaller. Iโ€™m on board with that. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yup. @itsfi but more if it was $5-6 not $16-18.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, that makes sense! ๐Ÿ˜ I think EL pops up at TJM/Marshalls with some regularity, so there's a good chance you might find them at a discounted price @sonnydee

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I initially had a hard time coming up with artistic masks for this week. Nothing came to mind, but after digging into some of the mask I picked up at the beginning of the year, I was able to find a few, including this beauty! โค๏ธ

The Creme Shop Caffeine Masquerade Eye Mask is one of my favorites! ๐Ÿ’– A true oldie-but-goodie and very pretty too! It's what I would consider an eye mask on steroids. It covers about 3/4 of my face, which for me, works out very well as my chin/jawline are the areas that are more likely to be prone to clogged pores and is, therefore, an area where I sometimes make special accommodations for when it comes to sheet masking (i.e., cutting away any excess material from that area, wringing out some of the essence in that portion of the mask before applying, or in some instances, turning a sheet mask into two pieces (top half and bottom half) and only leaving on the bottom half for half or one-third of the time I would the other portion, etc.).
 
This eye mask is saturated in a clear watery essence that smells deliciously of chocolate! ๐Ÿซ Results are wonderful - skin feels soft and smooth and looks refreshed and brightened. I've repurchased this mask time and time again and will continue to do so. ๐Ÿ˜
