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

Yes, it seemed a little iffy to me, @itsfi! It was a recipe from an American Girl magazine and it was...interesting. The taste was there, and it helped pass the afternoon. Iโ€™ve had to limit baked goods to at least every other day, though ๐Ÿ˜„ 

Which direction are you referring to with masks? Also, if you have tried their Kale one, I would love to know if itโ€™s worth a buy.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve tried the Eminence kale mask @eshoe. Or, not that I remember - itโ€™s entirely possible that the aesthetician used it on me and I donโ€™t recall it; I very often fall asleep during my facials. I know she likes to layer various masks, usually 2, sometimes 3, depending on my skinโ€™s needs, during the facial.

Oh, by direction of masks, I just meant using more Eminence masks more frequently in my masking routine as far as non-sheet masks go. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Layering masks, that sounds like a thirst-quencher for the skin @itsfi! I tried a brief search but of course now the results are about the right filters to use for PPEโ€™s. Not quite what I am looking for๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhh @eshoe, this "new normal" is also affecting our online search results. Try the following searches: 

  • "Eminence" and "You Need to Know About Double Masking"; or 
  • "Refinery29" and "Double-Masking Is The New Double-Cleansing"

This should weed out results for PPE filters. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh, that foil mask looks amazing, @itsfi!! Can't wait to see the rest of your Rainbow week masks!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @haleyvvvv! ๐Ÿค— This is one of the prettiest foil masks Iโ€™ve used. The red is just so bright and beautiful.


I am trying to stay within my โ€œpre-2020 purchased masksโ€ and already open masks to do the rainbow week theme, so itโ€™s been interesting, but fun, to see what combinations I can come up with. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Um, how have pink and sparkle not already been added the official ROYGBIV list?! Your niece is 100% correct about those additions, @itsfi!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Right, @quspork?!! ๐Ÿค— Pink and sparkle deserve to have their place in the rainbow. I let my niece know you agree with her thoughts on the rainbow. Her marker set doesnโ€™t have a โ€œsparkleโ€ color so Iโ€™ve had to improvise when drawing rainbows with her. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Haha! I agree with your niece- pink and sparkle definitely should be a new addition! I like how she thinks! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚ SO adorable!

I have that Yadah mask too and don't have the heart to use it yet because my 4 year old loves it so much! Haha! Apparently the packaging is just so pretty to him! (he also loves all the Peripera smoothie masks for the same reason ๐Ÿ˜‚) Glad to see the mask itself is just as pretty as the packaging.... and even better that the results turned out great!

That Cherry mask sounds delicious! So happy to hear you're loving it! ๐Ÿ’ I just ordered a few samples and this is one of them - can't wait to try it out! I can definitely see a full-size purchase of something from this brand in the near future! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

Oooh, excited to see what Eminence goodies you picked up @Shosh85! Iโ€™ve really been enjoying their products. โ™ฅ๏ธ 

Love that your 4 year old appreciate the packaging so much on this one and the Peripera smoothie masks. The colors are pretty so itโ€™s hard to argue with that. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

That is such a beautiful foil mask @itsfi 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster, the red is just really so stunning! Every time I use this foil mask, I find myself thinking I need a pair of shoes and a dress in this shade of red. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I, of course, need neither, but it doesn't stop me from thinking I do whenever I take out this mask. ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Super quick and abbreviated masking recap:)

This was from G week, love the Volition Beauty Detoxifying Silt Gelee Mask. The Shu Uemera is a near dupe for the fresh Rose Face Mask 3.3 oz/ 100 mL. the only difference I noted was the addition of AD to the Shu, which....why?  Still, lovely, and thankful to have a hydrating gel mask back in my rotation.

Sakura Rose Petal Mask. Texture, scent, consistency matches the fresh almost perfectly. A bit of a surprise but I will take it!

The Crรฉme Shop Gudetama mask was the right fit for the evening; simple
and no fuss, no crazy scent, easy fit. A little tack, but my skin was happy and my routine has been lax so it was a well-perfect fit;)

Last night I tried the Leaders Juicy Mojito.

I have only tried one Mojito, and it was not the best tasting. This mask, however, stole my ๐Ÿ’—. The scent is a true lime with a fresh bite, which I am guessing is the peppermint. Sandwiched between two protective layers, it sat well on my skin and was easily maneuvered where it didnโ€™t. I might enjoy this even more than the Piรฑa Colada version, as the scent was so fresh and unique. I emptied the extra maybe .3-.5 oz remaining serum across my forehead and cheeks. Love, love, love. Hope to find more of these before they enter the sheet mask graveyard ๐Ÿ‘ป

 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Nice to know what to look forward to with the Shu mask @eshoe. Iโ€™ve been good about not opening more masks until getting through all or most of the partially used ones. Ahhh, another wonderful Leaders mask! A mojito sounds refreshing right now. Well, maybe a mojito sorbet to be exact. Thereโ€™s a store in the city that would have lines out the door during the warmer months when they carried that flavor. I imagine the same rings true even now, though with people spaced out in line to keep socially distanced.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That store you mention sounds soooo welcome right now, @itsfi, so soothing! I think you have been having some unbearable highs, must be a tough summer. Wishing you some cooler weather โ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿ’งโ˜ƒ๏ธ

 

I think this mask could be called a Margarita-scent as well. There are a few Leaders biocell masks left in my drawer, and I treasure them. Iโ€™m also very happy that I took the plunge on the Sakura, I needed something like that in my routine, it kind of feels like a safety-net mask. Maybe because the fresh was one of the first masks I fell in love with๐ŸŒน 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This looks like a great masking lineup, @eshoe! The mojito mask sounds really nice!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I wish I had a backup or two of the Mojito, @quspork. It was a really enjoyable mask all-around!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  Yum! That Mojito mask has been on my list forever! I loved the Pina Colada one too, so I'm not surprised this one turned out great! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 I was a little uncertain whether or not I would like it, but it was so refreshing! The Piรฑa Colada is sweeter, I still have one left that I am holding onto for a special day:)
