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 - PART II

Iโ€™m never going to live it down @itsfi @lmaster . Donโ€™t worry I have a good sense of humor.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Loretta55, it was you and me. We are in this together!!! @lmaster 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi that was so funny! Good times!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Oh nice, I have these in my stash, @itsfi - looking forward to using them now!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hope they work out for you @eshoe.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi Definitely sounds like a relaxing masking session! Glad these worked out so great! Would you say these are more effective than the Sephora ones?

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85, I thought these Aveeno ones were better, which surprised me. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Iโ€™ll plan to use the Sephora Collection ones again very soon for a better comparison. I know I have a set of the older ones from Sephora and I have at least a foot mask from the new clean line, which Iโ€™ve yet to try. Stay tuned! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Late post for the last couple of masks from last week's G & T group, with blueberries in the spotlight. 

T is for Tencel (Farmskin mask)  
G is for garden-variety (Secret Nature mask)  
Sheet Mask Focus: Tencel mask (or Farmskin refers to it as "HI-tencel")
BlueberriesBlueberries
Secret Nature Firming Blueberry Mask Sheet
Spoiler
This is your garden variety white, cotton sheet mask. These are daily gwps at couple of the local Asian beauty boutiques near me - buy 5 sheet masks of any brand, get any 5 of these Secret Nature masks free. I've passed on these gwps on quite a few occasions, largely to keep my sheet mask supply from really being over the top. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think there are 5 different varieties - aloe, coconut, lemon, rose and this one, blueberry. The coconut is probably my favorite one of this line in terms of results; the rose and blueberry ones for their scent. I can see most of these working nicely for daily masking as they are do what most sheet masks do - lightly hydrate and refresh skin. This blueberry varietal claims to yield some firming, but I don't think that's typically something that would be noticeable with one use. This blueberry mask has a lovely fruity scent and left my skin hydrated and with that fresh-faced brightness to it. The Secret Nature masks are sound mask - no frills and they do what you expect from a sheet mask. 
Farmskin Super Food Blueberry Strengthening Sheet Mask
Spoiler
Farmskin sheet masks have never let me down. It's really a question of which one I love more, as my skin has been happy with all the ones I've tried so far.  This Farmskin Super Food Blueberry Strengthening Sheet Mask checks off a lot of boxes for me. The soft, thin, lightweight, second-skin Tencel material, with its second skin feeling wraps lovingly around the contours of my face, adhering comfortably as it seals in the subtle, but natural, deliciously blueberry-scented, thin, watery essence, and leaving my skin feeling soft, bouncy and nicely moisturized after an half hour of wear. Like with other masks from the brand, this is a love and a definite repurchase. 
TonyMoly Blueberry Lip Balm
Spoiler
How cute is the packaging for this lip balm? TonyMoly has a few different varietals and if I don't have them all, I have most of them. ๐Ÿ˜ The balm itself feels hard in the container but applies easier and softer after it makes contact with the lips - it's easier for me to scoop out a little of the balm with a mini-spatula. The blueberry balm has a pink with a soft purple tint to it and leaves a slight sheen to the lips when applied. It's not a balm I would reach for in my evening routine or when I'm looking to infuse my lips with a load of hydration overnight, but it makes a nice balm in the mornings or for layering. Oh, and it smells pretty nice. The scent is very subtle and reminds me of a not too sweet candy.
 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Lol... @itsfi I was reading though and thought... what lip mask??? I didn't see that... Scroll back up... ohhh.  I just saw it as a blueberry lol. I like the farmskin 'salad' masks too... they're consistently good for me. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hahaha @missjeanie! They do a nice job of making it look like the real deal. Just a bit larger and plastic. ๐Ÿ˜† Farmskin salad masks are amazing!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi ๐Ÿ˜… I was looking at your pic,, thinking,,,"that blueberry cannot be real" then I set at the end, it was the lip balm!! How adorable is that!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, can you imagine a real blueberry that size?!! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ The line also includes a green apple, cherry, cherry tomato, and peach lip balm. ๐Ÿ˜ The peach ๐Ÿ‘ smells really good!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi I thought there were rare blueberries ๐Ÿ˜…

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi The blueberry scent sounds lovely to me!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It was @tjffc! It wasnโ€™t overwhelming or artificial. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Loving the blueberry theme!! Such a rockstar ingredient! That lip balm is sooo cute!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you @ather! It made me think of the yummy scented blueberry pie candle you so kindly gifted me. TonyMoly really does some great things with packaging when it comes to its lip balms. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Its hard to go wrong with a blueberry theme and both these masks sound great! That Farmskin mask is definitely on top of my favorites list! So far there hasn't been a mask from this line I haven't liked!

That lip balm really is too cute! Tony Moly sure makes the most adorable packaging!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Love the Farmskin masks @Shosh85. โ™ฅ๏ธ I have a handful I still need to try but so far, like you, Iโ€™ve been pleased with all the ones I have tried. If my memory is correct, I think the TonyMoly blueberry lip balm was one of the first things I ever saw from the brand, years ago, maybe even a decade ago, before I even knew about KBeauty, or was as interested in it or skincare as I am now.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Love this theme, @itsfi. Both masks sound like they performed well!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thanks @quspork. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I love blueberries so any opportunity to include them, I will!
