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

@eshoe  No, I haven't, but that sounds amazing!! I don't have a Trader Joe's anywhere near me. I think I've only been to one once when there happened to be one within walking distance of a hotel I was staying at. 

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

Really, @PrettyPaint? I guess that makes it very special, then. Sometimes itโ€™s best not to have places like that close to us:) I miss having one near, but save plenty of money thanks to that!

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

Sorry to hear it was a bit of a mess @PrettyPaint looks very interesting

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

@lmaster  Yeah, definitely a bit of a drain clogger. 

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

The ingredients list on this one looks good @PrettyPaint ๐Ÿ˜€ and I'm intrigued by a basil scented mask. 

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

@itsfi  Good thing I like basil ! ๐Ÿ™‚

Going with the number theme and using my favorite mask from the Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air line. ๐ŸŒ

Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Snail Mask

This is a thin-medium cotton sheet mask that was fully saturated with white, milky serum - which surprised me a little because I've ever used a snail mask with that kind of serum. It had a light, clean & fresh scent that was barely noticeable while the mask was on. The fit was a little wonky - a tiny bit too long at the chin/jawline, slightly too wide at the temples, and the eye holes were way too big. Despite having to smoosh and tweak things a little, it adhered very well and was comfortable to wear. I had it on for about a half hour. There wasn't any tackiness after removing and my face felt moisturized and plump, and my skin felt soft & smooth and had a nice dewy glow.


I really enjoy this one and will probably always try to have them on hand!

@Shosh85  Oooo I love a good snail mask!! Too bad it fit wonky tho. 

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

@ather  Yep, me too! Snail is probably one of my most favorite ingredients in skincare and this mask does not disappoint! It's always nice when a mask fits well, but a bad fit is never a deal breaker for me, since there's always something you can do to fix/tweak it. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85 stellar results here!!

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

@lmaster  Definitely stellar! Love that snail slime! ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

You donโ€™t even know how big of a grin I had when I saw this snail mask photo @Shosh85. ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ Well, then again, I think maybe you would know! ๐Ÿ˜† Yes about the wonky fit. But itโ€™s such a good mask - soft, thin mask with gastropod goo-rific results! ๐Ÿคฃ Love it! โ™ฅ๏ธ

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

@itsfi  Haha! "Gastropodic goo-rific" is a perfect description!  ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŒ

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

What do you think our chances are of getting it into the dictionary @Shosh85? ๐Ÿ˜† I mean, weโ€™d have to use it in everyday talk a lot ...

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

@itsfi  Well, "twerk" made it into the dictionary, so why not? ๐Ÿ˜œ 

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

Hahaha! Excellent point @Shosh85! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ 

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

The Starskin Orglamic Pink Cactus Mask is a two step mask.  You start with applying 3-4 drops of prickly pear seed oil.  It had no scent.  The mask itself is super saturated in thin milky serum that smells fresh  and tart.  The fit is nice and it conforms well.  I felt a bit of tingling on my lips and around my mouth from this.  Nothing uncomfortable but Iโ€™m not sure thatโ€™s supposed to happen.  My skin felt a little sticky after using this.  I applied some more oil afterward like the package suggested and that seemed to help with the stickiness.  My skin has a nice glow to it and feels very hydrated.  Iโ€™d buy this again

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

Ooouh, milky serum? Iโ€™m intrigued @heartsmyface. Putting it on my list. For someone working on working through what masks I have, I probably shouldnโ€™t me making a list. ๐Ÿคฃ Have you used other Starskin masks? Iโ€™ve seen them in the store but donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve ever tried one...yet.

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

@itsfi   Ha, i know!  The list kinda helps though cause then I feel a little like I am shopping but without pressing purchase.  

I actually have a couple other starskin masks I bought in HK.  theyโ€™re not cool and multi step like this one though.  I canโ€™t recall if Iโ€™ve tried them but am sure I have...  there was a time I could recall

every mask Iโ€™d tried.  

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

@heartsmyface super cute packaging!

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

Ooooh this is a nice mask, @heartsmyface - love the extra little oil pack. I liked it too, I think I snagged one from the motm box a while back. They have a celery cleansing balm that is extra gentle, too;)
