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, fit, adherence, mask type (hydrating, brightening, exfoliating, detox, sleeping, etc.) as well as your overall experience.

Most importantly: Would you repurchase it? 


Second most important: Have fun and merry masking!

Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Samtian, I have 2 more from the line to try and am looking forward to them. It's great for seeing how the skin responds to that one ingredient! πŸ˜€ If I find one I like more than the others, I might see about picking up a week's worth and seeing how my skin responds if I did some daily masking with just the mask. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi., it's only made of one ingredient?!! That's cool.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@nuinui933, very cool, right? It's great to see a mask that's literally just about the touted ingredient. πŸ‘ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi, such a cool mask!! 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@FullCoverageBB, I like that it's 100% one ingredient! β™₯️ The two I've used so far have been good and I'm looking forward to trying out the other two varieties from the line.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Here's a D mask for the week:

 

Moksha's Dear Berry - It contains strawberry, blueberry, and tomato extract. The scent wasn't particularly strong, but there was a tiny bit of a berry scent. The serum was creamy and there was a lot of it. The fit was particularly odd for me. It was too large overall, but the cutouts/holes were particularly exaggerated in size. In terms of results, I did find it quite hydrating and didn't feel the need to apply moisturizer afterwards. All in all, D for decent!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

I like your use of D for Decent, @PrettyPaint πŸ‘πŸΌ A very positive outlook you have! The serum does sound especially nice.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint  This one sounds nice! I love masks with creamy serum! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Sounds really nice!! @PrettyPaint sorry the fit was off

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Thanks so much @lmaster 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

Ohh that’s a great combo of ingredients @PrettyPaint - glad to hear it worked well even with the weird fit!

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@Kim888 Thanks so much - yes, my skin was definitely happy with the ingredients. πŸ™‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint, a light berry scent sounds nice.

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@nuinui933  It was barely detectable, but I'm pretty sure that's what I was smelling! πŸ™‚ 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint, oooh, sheet masks with a creamy serum always grab my attention. Especially if you didn’t feel the need to follow up with a moisturizer. This one has an unique combination of fruits and veggies that I don’t recall seeing before and it’s one I wouldn’t think of on my own. Is this mask one you would want to use again?

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@itsfi  I liked the serum for sure, but I think the fit was strange enough that I probably wouldn't repurchase. I think I'm to the point where I'm getting pretty picky about repurchase decisions. 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint, it’s not a bad place to be. There are plenty of good masks to be used or that you’re happy to use again. But it’s especially nice when there are great masks that you’re excited to used again. β™₯️ I’ve found that being more selective helps to keep the mask supply in a more manageable state. πŸ˜† 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@PrettyPaint, seems like a super cool mask! I also have a hard time with face masks fitting me properly. My face is so tiny! πŸ˜‚

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

@FullCoverageBB  I can totally relate! I never felt like my face was particularly small, but now I'm beginning to wonder given a lot of the masks I've tried! The vast majority are much too large.

C for champagne wishes and caviar dreams 
C - champagne wishes & caviar dreams.jpg
Last week, I went with a theme inspired by a throwback television show, a forerunner to the reality shows on TV these days. I *think* a few folks here might remember Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. If not, it was a show about you guessed it, lifestyles of the rich and famous. I would catch the ending waiting for my after school cartoon program to come on when Robin Leach, a host of the show, would end with his catchphrase, sending viewers off with "champagne wishes and caviar dreams". Now, of these two, I'm more for the champagne than the caviar. If it's on sushi, I often will scrape it off and "share" it with whomever I'm having a meal, though here, I scraped it off for a quick photo opp and then shared the caviar. πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚
 
Champagne Sheet Mask:
Spoiler
The cotton cupra material of the Coscodi Sparkling Wine Mask Sheet (Red) leans slightly thin, feels soft against the skin, adheres well, gently hugging the contours of your facial features and wears comfortably. This mask is large overall, especially at the chin and along the jawline, where it hangs an extra 2" on me. The sugary, grape gummies scented watery essence saturates the mask, dries down smoothly after 30 minutes (though longer wear is entirely possible), without tack or stickiness, leaving  skin looking and feeling hydrated, refreshed and brightened.
Caviar Sheet Mask:
Spoiler
If you asked me before this masking sesh, I would have said hands down the Coscodi mask would be my favorite of the two; reason being, I'm not a huge fan of the mouthless masks for which the brand is renowned and caviar isn't what I would consider a 'go to' or 'must have' as a skincare ingredient, or otherwise, really.  My 45 minutes with the 23 Years Old Black Cavidiol Mask is a classic example of why not to judge a book by its cover, or a mask by its ingredients or unique features. I really like the cocoon feel of the thick, tension fabric on this mask - it's like a lightly weighted blanket for the face, lulling you into a calmer and more relaxed place. There are black specks scattered throughout the mask, the caviar bits, that transfer onto the skin and require a little extra effort to remove afterwards. 
 
This 23 Years Old mask has lots of extra material for the neck and as expected, was mouthless. Interestingly, I felt a zing whenever I pressed or ran my fingers along the material covering my mouth - I wouldn't say it stung or tingle; just zingy. The clear, watery-yet-gel-like essence feels cooling and soothing and there's so much of it that I could have kept the mask on for a lot longer than I did. Results were excellent - hydrated, more bouncy, plump skin; brighter complexion; and dark spots were temporarily lightened. This mask took me completely by surprise, in the best way. I had no expectation of liking it as much as I did, let alone being in a position where I would consider keeping this mask on hand in my mask library. I know! My mask library will have a mouthless mask - I never would have imagined that would be the case.
 

Re: πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge πŸ˜ŒπŸ’–

It is endearing that you had both of these masks on hand, @itsfi, for a pretty memorable tie-in! Makes me want to find an episode (or two) to watch again. And speaking of memorable, it is certainly hard to forget one’s first 23years masking experience, at least for meπŸ˜„
