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

@WinglessOne those old "dirty" masks 🤣

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ShortErica  🤣I will forever be annoyed by the whole "clean" beauty trend. 

RE: Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne, this is the version I had in my recent gratis, and I think I described it as having a laundry detergent-type scent. It really threw me off guard! I bought the Lychee version to try, hoping for better luck with that one. I’ve never tried to cut a mask prior to placing it on my face; most times I’m lucky just to get it unfolded before dripping most of the serum all over the sink. I might try it just out of curiosity sometime 🤷🏻‍♀️

Re: RE: Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  That laundry detergent fragrace seems to be in a lot of Sephora's sheet and stick masks. Sephora really loves that scent for some reason! 

 

I also bought the lychee mask, and a few other: spirulina, pomegranate, pineapple (which I might regret; we'll see how my face handles it), and coconut. Interestingly, the coconut mask contains more watermelon extract than this watermelon mask. 😄 Anyway, can't wait to hear your thoughts on the lychee mask! Let's hope it doesn't smell like laundry. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne  Have you tailored a mask while it was on your face? If so I’m impressed!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather  Yep, I tailor most masks while they're on my face. 🙂 I use a pair of blunt nosed brow/beard trimming scissors that have curved-out tips, so I can't accidentally stab myself while cutting. 

 

I'm still considering buying a second larger pair of scissors for jobs like chin trimming, but these do the job just fine.I'm still considering buying a second larger pair of scissors for jobs like chin trimming, but these do the job just fine.

I do cut some masks before putting them on my face, though. I use a lot of different LuLuLun masks, so I pretty much know how their sheet fits me. I can tailor those as soon as I pull 'em from their pouches/box. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@WinglessOne I didn't care for this one much, I agree the scent was mehhh, and I felt it stayed pretty tacky

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster  I wasn't too annoyed with the tackiness; I've used masks with far more tack than this one. Moisturizer helped tone it down some. But that scent... could've done without that. This mask should've smelled like watermelon, dang it! 

 

Also, I don't know why Sephora markets this as a watermelon mask. They should call it a rice/sake mask instead, since there's more of that in the formula than watermelon extract—and rice ferment is good stuff. Hmpf. 

2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Doesn't really fit the theme but it is green & named after another planet🤷💚 Fit? its a clay mask Smell? strong, but just don't eat or go near food & you'll be ok. I opened the fridge without thinking & spent the next 5 min trying to find out what went bad😣 then remembered what mask i had on....🤦 Consistency?easily spreadable, a mousse- like clay. It does dry down but doesn't feel tight. Ease of use?ok, I was able to remove this mostly with my hands & it could be done but using a cloth was much easier, which I used for about half my face Would I  purchase/try again?maybe for purchase. I did feel this cleared my pores better than the Eradikate did on my trouble areas & I left that on overnight. My skin feels smoother but not stripped. I've used this before & do have more samples of this to use before I make up my mind whether or not to buy. I'm finding moving all my opened masks to one drawer has really helped to actually USE them. Right now, 💚💚💚💚. one star deducted for the scent, but if this works. I can deal with the smell!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  Meh, too bad about the scent! I agree though, if the results are good enough I could put up with it 😬

just gotta grin & bear it @Shosh85😝

RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee the scent is something I’ve heard mentioned more than once here. BUT also that it works incredibly well, soooooo.....

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  I’ve never tried this one. Now I’m curious to try it!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee, I love the results from this mask. Agree with you about the scent but it’s not a dealbreaker for me. To me, it’s fine if a mask doesn’t fall within a theme, but yours here does fit! W is for woman founded and woman owned (I don’t think the brand has been sold)! 

Love that you are going through your open / partially used masks. It definitely helps to have them in one place! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@sonnydee  Each time I try a Saturn sample, I can't handle the sulfur scent longer than 20 minutes. I'm glad you're able to deal with it and actually get overnight use from it! 

oh @WinglessOne sorry for the confusion- I forgot to put...

oh @WinglessOne sorry for the confusion- I forgot to put a wear time. I left Saturn on for about 30 min. & Kate Somerville Eradikate as a spot treatment, on overnight. KS had a much more pleasant scent but not sure about the effectiveness yet🤔

Re: oh @WinglessOne sorry for the confusion- I forgot to put...

@sonnydee Ah, I see. Yeah, EradiKate smells much better than Saturn. 🙂 I always wonder how anyone can handle that strong sulfur scent overnight. Anyway, you're still doing better than me at 30 minutes with Saturn. 🤣I'll have to wait til I have a spot that might respond to sulfur and my nose is too congested to smell much, before I try going longer than 20 minutes with Saturn again. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

D is for Dewy.... loving how my skin is feeling using this mask, and the print is pretty cute too.

RE: Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Anastasiya13, this one has received a lot of ❤️ around here, happy you were able to try it!

Re: RE: Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Thank you, I am happy I have two more to use, and relax with.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II
