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

@ather  It's hard not to love a fruity-rainbow-hearted mask!  ๐Ÿ˜‹๐ŸŒˆ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I so want to do this one but since it has a later expiration date I'm trying to focus on other masks that are rainbow. Glad to hear it gets a good review from you @Shosh85. Maybe 2021 Rainbow week ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  I feel ya. There are so many later-date masks that I'm excited to try, but am trying really hard to save! I wouldn't normally have used this one, but it just fit the theme so well, I couldn't help myself ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŒˆ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 it was the perfect pick! I'm thinking it could have been a mask meetup. Hindsight is 20/20 and all

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Absolutely perfect for the theme!! @Shosh85 the packaging just makes me happy

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  It makes me happy too! It's definitely the kind of packaging that catches your attention! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

The rainbow mask! It sounds like it worked out nicely for you, @Shosh85. I love the packaging on this one- it just looks so cheerful. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@quspork  It's definitely a cheerful mask! It's hard to frown at hearts and rainbow colors! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This one sounds great @Shosh85! I like that the scent leans more towards blueberry, too! ๐Ÿ˜ I'm looking forward to using this mask this week - if you and @sonnydee like it, it should mean it'll be a good one for my skin year-round. The hearts on the mask are so cute! ๐Ÿ’–

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  It's such a fun mask! I think if I could change anything, it'd be the thickness of the material. There's not too many Creme Shop masks that make it on my repurchase list, but this is one of them! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This mask is so pretty, @Shosh85! Love the font on the ingredients list, too, ha;)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe Right? The rainbow goodness is the reason I'd buy more! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŒˆ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I don't think I have any 3 steps masks in my stash (though at the size it still is, there could be something I overlooked) so I prepped for the week with some I and R masks. And that's when I realized by bioBelle  #InstantDetox and A'pieu Icing Mask were both watermelon and went ahead and brought a few more in for a duel. So here's what we have:

 

bioBelle  #InstantDetox (I actually have two of these - one from @lmaster and one from @Shosh85, I'll not spoil how excited ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am to have another)

A'pieu Icing Sweet Bar Sheet Mask (Watermelon) - another treat from @Shosh85 

20200825_125219.jpg20200825_125226.jpg

 

lookAtMe Watermelon Face Mask (of course I missed that I had this from @missjeanie and went into the box I bought but now I have the same mask back together as a family ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Masqueology Watermelon Moisturizing Mask - @Shosh85 again! Thanks for making this battle possible

All masks were enjoyable and I'd do them again. I thought a table would be best to compare so hopefully it pastes well

 

 A'pieu Icing Sweet Bar Sheet Mask (Watermelon)bioBelle #Instant DetoxlookAtMe Watermelon Face Mask - Deeply HydratingMasqueology Watermelon Moisturizing Mask
Smell(1) Pleasant watermelon scent(2) Pleasant watermelon scent that was light during wear, only when comparing against A'pieu did I detect slight clean (like laundry) vibes(4) Did not smell like watermelon to me, instead I thought of hard candy. My husband asked if I used anything that smelled like cherry jello.(3) Kinda watermelon but also leaned more candy/artificial smell
Material & DesignThin material, package did not indicate type but searching says tencelFace looked like a watermelon! Eucalyptus tree pulp material which was comfyVery comfy tencel materialRed tinted and thin material, package did not indicate type and I'd guess tencel
Fit(4) Decent fit but had excess length in cheek area so I tried to let the natural fold in the mask fold other so the philtrum and eye areas aligned(2) Great fit(2) Great fit(1) Best fit
Wear TimeInstructions: 15-20
Worn: 25? but was quite dry
Instructions: 15-20
Worn: 30
Instructions: 15-20
Worn: 40
Instructions: 20
Worn: 30
Tackiness(1) No tack(1) No tack but maybe residue on skin(4) Slight tack, more tacky on neck(3) Slight tack
Extra SerumEnough for face for a different day but less than bioBelleEnough for face for a different dayVery little, maybe enough for neckVery little, maybe enough for neck
ResultsSkin felt hydrated but wouldn't pass on moisturizer after using itHave some blemishes I'm trying to heal and this did help with redness, skin looked more evenSkin looked nice and felt hydrated, added moisturizer too soon didn't help with tackiness but it did fade after timeI felt this one helped with skin evenness too but like most sheet masks, even if they are intended to moisturize, I still apply moisturizer
Other notesDripping out of the packageDripping out of the package. Didn't like that the highlighted ingredients (watermelon and centella asiatica) are below fragrance
Grade(3) B+
Despite the best watermelon scent for me, the not as good fit takes off some points
(1) A-
My pet peeve is about the star ingredients but this one is the overall winner for me
(4) B+
Not watermelon smell and tackiness bring this one down but it is still a good mask
(2) A-
Although the scent was artificial, the great material, fit, and skin evenness this mask brings make it beat out A'pieu

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Such a great comparison, @ShortErica!! Glad they were all overall good!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thanks @haleyvvvv!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Great comparison @ShortErica  and a perfect time of year for a watermelon extravaganza!  I love your sheet!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thanks @missjeanie! It was such a happy accident to fall into the watermelon masks so I went with it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Lovely comparison, @ShortErica! I always forget the Biobelle has a pretty print, the Peach one is fun, too๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I have a few bioBelle from unicorn mail and they are on my list to try soon @eshoe. One of them has a rainbow cake picture that I'm using this week ๐Ÿ˜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh perfect, @ShortErica ๐ŸŒˆ!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Love this watermelon comparison, @ShortErica! I don't think I've seen the Masqueology one but it sounds like it turned out well!
