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 - PART II

Happy to hear this one worked well for your skin, @sonnydee! I was surprised it isnโ€™t a black charcoal mask, too. Well I didnโ€™t read that about not moving your facial muscles, I have one more and I will remember to do it right ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I overlooked it until I went to check how long to leave it on @eshoe ๐Ÿคท I think it was the 1st time i have ever seen that.....it was a good mask though!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Glad to hear this one worked out well for you, @sonnydee!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Lived up to its name @quspork ๐Ÿ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  Sounds like a great mask!!! Iโ€™ll keep my eyes out for it!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Its currently oos - all the types, i think on facetory @ather unfortunately. It would be one i would investgate further. ๐Ÿ•ต

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  Darn. That must mean itโ€™s really good!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I know smh @ather 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Jellyfish butt @sonnydee!?!! A new way to look at biocellulose masks! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thats what the teen mini calls them. She refuses to use bio cellulose masks. ๐Ÿคท more for me @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I can see where sheโ€™s coming from @sonnydee. Whereโ€™s the fun in putting on a bio-cellulose mask when you can have a jellyfish butt instead?!! Hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Love the teen miniโ€™s creativity! ๐Ÿ’—

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  I thought it was going to be a black mask when I tried it too! Happy to hear you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

@Shosh85 @lmaster i liked it enough to hunt it down & buy...

@Shosh85 @lmaster i liked it enough to hunt it down & buy. After my current stash dwindles a bit๐Ÿ˜œ

Re: @Shosh85 @lmaster i liked it enough to hunt it down & buy...

@sonnydee I can't see your stash dwindling! You are just too good at finding all the mask deals!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee glad to see you like this one too ๐Ÿ™Œ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

So bad fit gets me every time and even worse than that is not knowing what to expect in terms of fit - in comes the Creme shop for Pet Peeves week. Also, as @eshoe shared, eye flaps - what is with those things?! Another pet peeve is fragrance, especially when it is midway up the list. At the bottom, I'll let it slide but when it's above "star" ingredients I'm giving it a major side-eye.

 

First up, Peaches N Cream sent to me by @Shosh85

This had a nice peach scent. It had a pretty thin material and eye flaps. I had a decent fit, good tucking by chin but the philtrum a bit thin and the mask was wide and in my hair on the sides. I wore it for 20 min, then on the neck. I do feel the Creme shop does sell itself short on wear time (10-15) and can be worn longer. There was very slight to no tack. My skin was brighter and even though I wished for plumping of forehead lines. It has sodium hyaluronate high in ingredients but I didn't see its impact. There was some extra serum in package for face which was nice for another morning. I'd say A-.

Next up was the Collagen face mask gifted by @missjeanie

This had a floral scent. It was a medium thin cotton material and there were eye flaps again. It had very thin philtrum and lots of spacing by the nose. It was wide all over. I wore the mask 25 minutes. I was left with medium tack. It did help with forehead lines which gives it a B+.

Decided to throw in a mask I've actually purchased

I was so surprised and enjoyed this the first time I used it. I got really good results but this time around I felt it was decent but not notable. It had a slight floral scent, yellow color, and thin material. Another mask that has eye flaps. The fit was big and annoying on my hair. I wore it 20 minutes and then on my neck. My chin still had some redness and forehead lines were present. It had a slight tack that was fading but I applied moisturizer. My skin felt felt hydrated. There was no extra serum. I'd say B+ vs. in the A's last time.

I tried the Sea Kelp mask earlier this year from @eshoe but had another from @lmaster

I wore it the right side up this time. It had a floral/fresh/clean scent and good fit. I appreciate it covering cheeks and forehead - those are my concern zones for lines. I did a 20 minute wear. I'm upset fragrance is high in the list and particularly not happy it is above sodium hyaluronate. The results were not as good as noted during my first time using it. There was not much change to my lines. B+. It's the kind of mask I would use but not purchase. I've got to revisit the Skyn Iceland ones and see if they are as good as memory.

Next up was another mask from @missjeanie

Very light floral/fresh/clean scent. This one had a bad fit. It was medium to thicker material and again - eye flaps! I can give credit for the thick philtrum but it was short on forehead. The chin was also an awkward length. 25 minute wear. It had slight to no tack. I didn't see much plumping, again fragrance was above sodium hyaluronate. My skin was hydrated/moisturized. B.

Unfortunately in my head this is my expectation for most Creme shop masks. It was the worst of the week (though not bad just not good) yet this is my impression of the brand which is not really fair. I just don't think I've had many wow moments with the brand. There's been some good ones (I'm thinking of you cica-mend) but in general the brand seems meh to me.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Nice lineup, @ShortErica ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ My โ€œCโ€ folder is overflowing with TCS masks, I really need to get to work on them! 

Fragrance used to be a non-issue, but over time Iโ€™ve come to realize why it can be so bothersome (besides the fact that it might be too cloying/strong/overbearing/an irritant. Major annoyance right there.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yes, as we've gone through the weeks it's been interesting seeing what brand name letters I have a lot, or which ones have been cleared from my stash @eshoe.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oooh is be curious to know which ones you have the most of, too @ShortErica ๐Ÿค”

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

My Marshall/TJ Maxx box purchases are what got my numbers up @eshoe - Yadah, Holika Holika, Look at me. There are some letters that I've used up or only have one or two masks left. I'm doing the Yadah jelly masks this week and now I'm curious about my current thoughts on the other style. Only one face - such problems! ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I definitely miss my TJ Maxx excursions, @ShortErica ๐Ÿ˜‰
