Mask of the Week Misc. Info & Previous Year's Links:


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: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  I'm happy you enjoyed this one! I agree it's a nice one, but probably not a favorite from the line. I can't remember, have you tried them all?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, I'm finding that I prefer the fruit ones (and the honey one) more than the veggie based ones from this line of masks. I've tried all except for the kale, olive and green tea. I have those three, but I have not gotten around to using them yet. The expiration dates are not until 2022 and one is 2023 so I didn't prioritize them this year, but plan to get to them in the next couple of months.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahaha!!   @itsfi I actually do enjoy broccoli!  Adding it to my grocery cart right now.  I won't lie and say that it's better than ice cream.... Glad to see this was another successful salad kit mask.  Odd that the mask shape was a bit off, I would have assumed that the entire line used the same blanks. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie, if you said you thought broccoli is better than ice cream, I'd probably send you a message asap to ask if you were feeling okay. I'd also wonder if the only ice cream you've been having is the bubble gum flavored one. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Broccoli is my favorite veggie so even if @missjeanie doesn't want any, I'll take her share, @itsfi  ๐Ÿ˜‚ (Plus yours looks so nice and fresh!)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yaaay @quspork! I love broccoli as well!! ๐Ÿฅฆ Favorite veggie is high praise. ๐Ÿ’š Iโ€™m gonna have to give some thought to what would be my favorite veggie. Hmmm... it would probably be the spud ๐Ÿฅ” but I canโ€™t have them very often. Well, itโ€™s probably more accurate to say I shouldnโ€™t have potatoes very often, at least not the way I like to eat them. Itโ€™s just not a good idea to have French fries, mashed potatoes, poutine, etc. all the time. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, mushrooms , asparagus, sweet potatoes, etc. Iโ€™m on board with pretty much anytime. ๐Ÿฅฌ๐Ÿฅฆ๐Ÿ  ๐Ÿ„ ๐Ÿ… ๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿ†๐Ÿฅ—

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Haha, yes, potatoes are awesome, just not always the healthiest addition to the meal (but so worth the extra calories for a good tot) @itsfi 




Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Love that @quspork๐Ÿ˜

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I approve of broccoli lol. I can also send you potato products any time you like lol.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahaha @Samtian! I always want to tag you when I do a food based mask with a photo of the food, but figure that might be annoying for you. So I just really consider doing it when it's an avocaDO mask. ๐Ÿคฃ 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Food and photos are two of my favorite things!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Final masking for last week, a Wonder and a Dud:


Ice globes are the tools I didnโ€™t know I needed until @sprocketta surprised me with these. I keep them in the fridge rather than the freezer (which I am almost certain I would forget to remove after 10 minutes), and use them primarily under my eyes and on my closed lids. They are so incredibly soothing, and give my skin relief from lack of sleep. The most amusing thing is that the ingredients include Water, HA, peppermint, panthenol, and citric acid. Now, I am trying to wrap my head around how these are necessary/beneficial given that glass is non-porous ๐Ÿค” Whatever the reason, I love them and am very grateful to sprocketta for thinking of me! 

The BlingPop Cucumber Face Mask Hydrating and Brightening is the second Iโ€™ve tried from this brand. The lemon ๐Ÿ‹ was higher rated but carried a scent leaning toward cleaner and did not adhere well. This was much different. A light cucumber mint scent greeted me, with an easy fit and a generous amount of watery serum. I left it on around 25 minutes and removed to find pleasantly plumped skin. Iโ€™m glad I have a backup, this was a good mask that I will happily repeat!

Finally, the fail of the evening for me was the Innisfree Green Tea Capsule Recipe Pack. It is an overnight mask, with the typical fresh/clean scent and water-cream texture. I didnโ€™t mind it, but wasnโ€™t wowโ€™ed by it until I woke up with little white blemishes covering my face๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ At least the Volcano mask was a hit ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks for sharing about the ice globes!! @eshoe sorry the innisfree was a mishap ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

You win some, you lose some, right @lmaster? There are minor battles;) Tje globes are wonderful and will last, most importantly๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe I'm glad you like them so much! It definitely took some searching and thought to come up with any skincare item you don't already have. I think it's hilarious that they're "infused" with anything.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

They are so fun to use, @sprocketta! I love that they are glass, so they wonโ€™t pick up on any vegetable scents while in the fridge;) Love them, they are going to be GREAT in the summertime ๐Ÿ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Oooo I was wondering about those ice globes! Now I might need to get some!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

They are really nice, @ather! Mine have little โ€˜handlesโ€™ which I guess helps the water inside remain cold. Makes them easy to handle, too. I love mine, canโ€™t thank @sprocketta enough for thinking of me:)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  That cucumber mask is really adorable. Love the packaging. That's too bad about the innisfree. I think I may actually have that laying around somewhere. I wonder what ingredient caused the blemishes?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, is your skin sensitive to silicones? That Innisfree masks seems to have quite a few silicones in it and I wonder if it's too much for your skin alone or in combination with the other mask or skincare products in your routine. @PrettyPaint 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi thatโ€™s an interesting observation ๐Ÿค” I use an SPF loaded with silicones (Dermstore Daily Mineral Sunscreen), but only on my forehead. Since the white bumps covered mostly cover my cheek area, that would make sense!


eta: also, a sleeping mask like this is likely to be on my skin longer than my spf, which might be the cause for the breakout - the silicones stopped up my pores for too long.
