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: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  This made me laugh, because there really are so many people that are disgusted by the word moist. 

 

That yadah snail mask is definitely a nice one.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Right @PrettyPaint lol! Gotta make the categories work somehow. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes I'm thinking second half of 2021 will be some not thinking masking with those Yadah and seeing if using them consistently impacts my skin @missjeanie. TCS has not been my favorite but that cica one was nice for me. Good luck with your 2 a days!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sometimes it's really nice not to have to think about which mask to use @ShortErica I'd be curious to see how you end up liking them after a run of use!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie I have a pack of the Yadah I've  been trying to use up too - they are definitely great for low-maintenance masking sessions you don't have to give much thought to. ๐Ÿ‘


I bet you looked super cute in the Tiger mask! Love the print/illustration on that one!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

For unusual week: Mugwort & G for Ganghwa

I think I choose this from MOTM because it was unusual

 

Fit?Ok, usual extra in the chin. the eyes holes were huge but I just patted some serum in the areas that wasn't completely covered

 

Smell?pleasant, like a clean herb. Would i want to eat/cook with it? No. But I would be ok if my body wash smelled like it. 

 

Consistency?silky, smooth clear serum. Soaked in nice without tack. 

 

Ease of use?no issues

 

Would I  purchase/try again?after researching what exactly this is...a plant...I would happily use this again. My skin feels nice & moisturized. 

Those with allergies to plants, or preggos ๐Ÿคฐ beware. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee idk what it is,,, but I'm drawn to the word mugwort ๐Ÿคฃ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Yessss @lmaster@sonnydee When I think about it, I find that skincare ingredients that have odd names have a certain pull with me. I mean, it's mugwort, after all! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Not all of them, of course, but nowadays, there's something about ingredients that are unique or have interesting names. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Happy to hear you found a mask suited to your skin from the box, @sonnydee! Many thanks to @lmaster ๐Ÿค—

โ€ƒ@eshoe @l@lmaster @lmaster  already planning my trades for the new box

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhhhh exciting!!! ๐Ÿ˜ @sonnydee @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I've been looking at their mugwort essence so thanks for this review @sonnydee!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Mugwort is a great ingredient! Happy to hear this one turned out nice! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Good warning for the pregnancy maskers @sonnydee .  I like the sound of the silky serum. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I see it as a question every now & then on BIC. Luckily during my 4 pregnancies my skin was the last thing on my mind {it didn't really freak out & I had plenty of other stuff to think about with all 4 high risk pregnancies} but thought i would mention it because there was an abundance of warnings ๐Ÿ˜ฑwhen I looked this up. Evidently it gets the uterus going either with miscarriage or puts you in labor if you want. @missjeanie 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Buddied up with @ShortErica and did this Spirulina mask for this week's theme. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
Thanks to MOtM for this one! (I wonder if this is the one you thought you had, @eshoe ๐Ÿ˜‚)

Biorace Intense Hydrating Spirulina Mask

This is a thin-medium cotton sheet mask that was saturated with a nice jelly serum. The scent is hard for me to describe - maybe clean + floral? I wouldn't say it was enjoyable, but it was tolerable enough. The fit was great and was just a little too long at the chin/jawline. It adhered well and was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. There wasn't any tack after removing. My face felt refreshed, lightly hydrated and soft and smooth.

 

I thought this was a nice one, and I'd use again, but probably wouldn't purchase. The scent wasn't my favorite and I wouldn't say I experienced "intense hydration," like it claims, but it was overall pretty decent.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 itโ€™s very possible! Iโ€™ve since picked up another, so at least I get to experience the โ€˜meh-nessโ€™ too ๐Ÿ˜‰ @ShortErica @missjeanie 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I'd at least give it a meh+. I peaked at @Shosh85's review (tried not too because I wanted to be unbiased but couldn't resist) and that lowered my expectations so then it wasn't as meh as I went in thinking. No tack and a good wear get a thumbs up. Let us know your thoughts when you use it ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™m using it right now @ShortErica @Shosh85 and my first impression on scent was Old Spice ๐Ÿง

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm wearing it now @Shosh85. I side eyed that "intense hydration" claim too. Yeah I got floral but then wasn't sure on the scent. I am appreciating the fit but yeah, nothing to knock my socks off.
