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.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi Those sounds like fun masks! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Gotta make masking fun, right @Samtian?!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi Haha. Those butt masks are a real pick me up kind of product.  You canโ€™t help but smile while doing one.  I love sticker type masks as well. You can get things done in them. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@heartsmyface, these make for a good laugh! ๐Ÿ˜† I do like that they stay on. Got my laundry done, did some prep work for cooking, etc. All while masking my bum! Must-tasking at its best. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

At least the bubble mask was not a complete fail @itsfi love the "too shy" reference ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Lol. Modesty when it comes to those butt masks @lmaster! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ Itโ€™s nice to have a couple of bubble masks I like if I were to want to use one. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

My โ€œAโ€ for the week, and how I started off 2021 - Aโ€™Pieu Bananas!


The first mask of the year was the very cooling OLEHENRIKSEN Cold Plunge Pore Mask 3 oz/ 90 mL. I almost always forget to check my pores after using a mask like this, and this time was no exception. Which is fine because I use it for how good it feels on my skin! This is such a good summertime mask, and one I plan to restock at some point.

The innisfree My Lip Balm is a good choice for a matte balm with longer-than usual longevity. I like the added tint, too, itโ€™s very cheery! 

The Aโ€™Pieu Banana Sheet Mask was a gift from the wonderful @Shosh85, and one Iโ€™ve been saving for a special day. Friday seemed perfect ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ I was greeted by a true Runt Banana scent, yum, yum, yum ๐ŸŒ The banana and strawberry were my favorites, so this was a treat. The fit was pretty good, and I was able to wear it for about 20 minutes before it began to dry a bit. I didnโ€™t notice any residual tackiness, and my skin felt sufficiently hydrated. Thank you Shosh85, for sending this my way, it was a fun start to the New Year:)

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe ohhhh yes!! The cold plunge is fabulous!!! And love a great banana mask ๐Ÿ™Œ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Yes on both, @lmaster! Going to make a banana date shake this afternoon ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe Love the cold plunge mask. And the Apieu mask sounds like a delight!! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

The cold plunge is so refreshing, @haleyvvvv! And as far as banana-scented masks go, this one is one of the sweetest and strongest, tooโ˜บ๏ธ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Those are all good beauty products you used @eshoe. Something so good about a banana runt scented sheet mask from A'Pieu!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Yes, I think as far as fruit scents go, @itsfi, Aโ€™Pieu packs a punch! Their icing bar masks, the melon one-is so, so good, too. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe  I'm so happy you enjoyed the Banana mask! The scent really is sooo good isn't it?! Definitely one of my favorites! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐ŸŒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Awww this one was so fun, @Shosh85 - such a great start to the year! And I am already plotting my candy fill in February, time to try Runts again. Although, I suspect I still wonโ€™t like the lime unless I eat them with the orange ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you for sharing this one, it was great!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe   I canโ€™t help but feel that the very fact you forget to check your pores means youโ€™re doing alright in the pore department;) 

And banana runt scent sounds sooooo good!   I wouldnโ€™t mind if it didnโ€™t work at all and just had  the sensory trip.  

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Maybe that is my problem, @heartsmyface. I  am guilty of using detox masks because thatโ€™s just what one does, right? Once a week, because my skin โ€˜needsโ€™ it. I guess psychologically, masks make me feel like I am doing something right once a day๐Ÿ˜„

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

B is for bamboo and black




MJ Care Aqua Bamboo Black Mask

This is a thin, black cotton sheet mask that was saturated with a slimy and slightly sudsy serum. There wasn't much of a scent - if I stuck my nose right in the package I could smell a very faint, sweet, maybe fruity kind of scent - but it really was very faint. The fit was kind of wonky - probably the worst fitting black mask I've ever encountered. ๐Ÿ˜‚ It was too wide, too long at the jaw where the pre-cut slits were way too long, the strip between the nose and mouth was too skinny and the eye holes were too large. ๐Ÿฅด๐Ÿ˜ฌIt sounds like a lot, but the mask was thin and stretchy enough I could just fold and smoosh things around easily. Despite the fit, it adhered well and was comfortable to wear the half hour I had it on. There was some slight tackiness after removing the mask, that lasted about 15 minutes. My face felt refreshed, soft and moisturized and looked a little brighter.

I really enjoyed this one! I'd definitely use again and would repurchase, just wouldn't go out of my way to do so.


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  That packaging is so pretty. Too bad about the fit, but I'm glad it had some nice effects to make up for it. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@PrettyPaint  The packaging really is nice - sort of calming ๐Ÿ˜Œ

 I honestly don't care too much about fit, since there's always a way to fix/tweak it - and it's definitely easier to look past a bad fit when the results turn out so good. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Well @Shosh85 looks like a charcoal mask that doesn't fit well.. ๐Ÿ˜” wait.. Did it have charcoal? Lol
