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!

oh, @eshoe that should be a challenge for next year to ma...

oh, @eshoe that should be a challenge for next year to mask with a partner- daughter, son, hubs, or significant other & note what they say/reaction 😂if my teeni's observation skills are any hint- jellyfish butt anyone? it's bound to be a good time for all!

Re: oh, @eshoe that should be a challenge for next year to ma...

YES agreed @sonnydee! The abbreviated bunch can be so helpful😊 I was just looking at suggestions for the next year tonight, I will find a place for this. If you have a name for it let me know!

Re: oh, @eshoe that should be a challenge for next year to ma...

Maybe "Newbie" week. Partner mask with a newbie or someone that masks infrequently. Or a new to you mask. @eshoe 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

Re: oh, @eshoe that should be a challenge for next year to ma...

This has sooooo much potential @sonnydee @I love 💕 it.

2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

V is for Vegan This was a gift from the incredible @itsfi 🤗thank you! Fit?good, almost perfect with only the usual extra in the chin area Smell? tea tree oil really takes a lead in this mask even though its in the middle of ingredients Consistency? watery,thin but no drippey mess. Ease of use?no trouble but that what this mask promises Would I  purchase/try again? I left this on for about 20 min. At that time, the mask was all but dried out but after removing i still had some serum left to soak in. After about 30 min all was soaked in & no tack. This is a solid mask..i would happily use it again after my current stash dwindles. 💙💙💙💙💙

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

TJ Maxx/Marshalls sure will make dwindling hard @sonnydee 😂

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  This was such a great one! Glad to hear you think so too! So far I've been pretty pleased with Whole Foods masks!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee love these masks too

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This is definitely a nice one, @sonnydee!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  Sounds like a great mask!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yay, so happy this is one you liked @sonnydee! 😍 “after my current stash dwindles” Hahaha! 😂🤣😂 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

The bio/cell ones are good, too @sonnydee

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Mediheal Vita Lightbeam Essential Mask Ex

This is a super thin cotton sheet mask that was saturated with plenty of serum and had a perfumy kind of scent - it's not the strongest scented mask I've used but it was obnoxious enough to give me a slight headache. The fit was ok – too long at the chin and just a little too wide at the temples. It adhered well and was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. There was a bit of tackiness after removing but absorbed in 10 minutes. My face looked brighter, felt hydrated, soft and smooth and had a nice glow.

I really loved the results from this mask but because of the scent I wouldn't repurchase.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Boo @Shosh85! I don't recall it having a strong scent but I swear these masks change on me. That's why I always love having a 2nd or 3rd look to see if my feelings match up. At least the results were good. Sorry about your headache. I'm sure the next mask you will use has to be better.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  It's funny you mention that, because for some reason I don't remember it being that strong the last time I used it - of course that was back when I wasn't saving my notes, so my memory could be off. 🤔 Great results though, so at least it wasn't all bad! 😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Uhhhhh @Shosh85 I can't stand a strong perfume scent on a sheet mask 😩 so sorry

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  I can tolerate a strong fruity scent, more than a strong floral or perfumy scent! Im happy the results were great though! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Same here!! @Shosh85 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh no! That's a shame about the scent, @Shosh85. I hope your headache didn't last too long. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thanks, @quspork, it was fine, just needed

a couple Advil. A strong/perfumy scent is always a bummer, but at least I got good results out of it! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85  Darn sorry the scent wasn’t great. I hate when they give me a headache!
