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

Thank you @lmaster๐Ÿ˜ I'm coming to terms with the fact that the vast majority of my themes for masking involve food. Hahahaha! ๐Ÿคฃ I can't figure out whether I draw inspiration for a masking sesh based on the food item, or if the mask I choose makes me hungry for a particular food. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ At this point though, regardless of which came first, I see it as I get to mask and I get to eat. Win-win! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  - You are far braver than I.  I looked at the package and thought nope -- love eggs just can't imagine an egg based mask on my face.  Immediate thought - the boiled egg smell.  Sorry you had the bad sensation on your face.  Must say the first little package was quite thou.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@MCSSavvy, I would consider myself a scaredy-cat when it comes to a lot of things, but for whatever reason, I'm fairly adventurous when it comes to sheet masks and skincare (well, for skincare, if it passes the patch test). ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ Fortunately, the tingling sensation was only temporary; it was just odd that when and where I felt it. Oh, interesting you bring up the boiled egg scent. I know I mentioned that one of the masks reminded me of a chemical scent; your comment triggered my thinking of the sulfur smell typically associated with hard boiled eggs but that wasn't the chemical scent I picked up. Interesting. Hmmm... I may need to pick up another of these masks sooner rather than later to figure out what that scent was.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ  The thought of trying a mask again just to see if it has a boiled egg smell cracks me up. Pun intended!! @itsfi   ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Sorry about the tingling, @itsfi, hopefully is wasnโ€™t too uncomfortable. It sounds like a pretty nice mask despite that, though - especially the yolk part! The mini egg reminds me of Dillydelight.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, the tingling was temporary and didn't cause any irritation or negative reaction so it's just a minor and fleeting inconvenience. It's nice that this pack came with 2 separate masks, all for $5. Not too bad.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Mmm an omelette sounds amazing. I love that little egg guy. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Aw yes! Gudetama!!! ๐Ÿ’› That little egg makes me smile; and he's a good reminder to take it easy. ๐Ÿคฃ What kind of omelette would you like @Samtian? I'll whip one up and send it your way! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Strawberries, cake and ice cream!

Besides the Perricone MD Cocoa Moisture mask, Skinfoodโ€™s Black Sugar Strawberry is one that is almost entirely too tempting, and just might be good enough to eat. Thank you @itsfi for this weekโ€™s theme which has been very, very enjoyable ๐Ÿ˜Š

The Kocostar Waffle Mask Ice Cream ๐Ÿฆ is the third one from this line that Iโ€™ve tried. I had high hopes for the scent, as the strawberry and honey versions were deliciously scented. This one...it was ok. I didnโ€™t catch anything ice cream-like, though someone with a better nose than I might ( @sonnydee have you tried this one yet?). The fit, feeling and generous amount of thick, clear serum were a treat for my skin, though. This line has impressed me much more so than any other Kocostar masks, and will most definitely go on the repurchase list. 

Finally, a bit of Glossierโ€™s Birthday Balm dotcom, my favorite scent of those Iโ€™ve tried. It is more like a salve in my mind than a gloss, and has a true vanilla cake scent (does not taste as good as it smells, sadly๐Ÿ˜†). I am curious about the new fig scent, but because Iโ€™m not wild about the texture, itโ€™s easy for me to pass. Overall, a fun masking for a Friday night!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe You inspired me to grab a set of the waffle masks and they just came in this weekend- can't wait to try them out!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ooooh I canโ€™t wait to hear about them, @quspork! I hope youโ€™ll like them๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I'm really interested in the waffle masks!!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I have a hunch you would like them @lmaster they feel different than any other mask! And of course, the yummy scents for the most partโ˜บ๏ธ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I'm have not tried any of the other waffle masks yet @eshoe maybe when the weather turns colder...love your choices!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I will be interested to hear which one is your favorite, @sonnydee!:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe @That packaging is so fun!!! Sorry the scent was disappointing on that one but glad to hear they are good overall! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

As much as their slices are fun, @Kim888, I think the waffles take the cake! I think you would enjoy them, too:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Love that Strawberry wash-off! It is sooo good! @itsfi got me hooked too!


Glad to hear the Waffle Masks are turning out great! I bought the pack too, but have yet to try them. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, I have to say that that Skinfood strawberry wash off mask is one of the best skincare discoveries I've ever made. ๐Ÿ˜ I think I am going to make it a staple in my skincare stash. If I have too many exfoliating wash off masks, I'll put it in my masks-that-smells-like-strawberry-jam part of the collection. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm happy that there have been others who have found their way to it as well. โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ“ It really is such a nice addition to a skincare collection. @eshoe 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I think a good portion of loves discovered here have been due to your enabling ๐Ÿ˜„

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

We're all one big enabling family. @eshoe @Shosh85 ๐Ÿ˜
