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: Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This one sounds nice, @Shosh85! Even post-try-me date;)I found one recently that expired earlier this year and it worked just fine, too. Good reminder to go through and double check for any lingering 2020โ€™sโ˜บ๏ธ

Re: RE: Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  I have all my masks organized by year (and alphabetized within each year) and I had already gone through all my 2020 masks, but this one had slipped under neath the drawer I was keeping them in. I'll definitely need to purchase a fresher one soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: RE: Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thatโ€™s a great idea for organizing them, @Shosh85. I might need to go through mine again, to weed out any lingering 2020 masks. Thanks for sharing your organization technique:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 Ooooh.  I like the name of this mask.  ๐Ÿ˜€

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@tjffc  The name got my attention too and so did the refreshing-looking packaging! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85  Sounds like a great mask!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather  It was wonderful! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 I LOVED that mask!   Two months expired is probably alright in most cases.  I get a little hesitant around the four month mark.  

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@heartsmyface Glad to hear you loved it too! I always hate to waste a mask if I don't have too - and I figured it was a good sign that it smelled great when I opened it ๐Ÿ‘

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 the light grape scent and niacinamide is a winner all around!! Expired and all ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

It really was a nice one, @lmaster! I was somewhat worried I'd smell something rancid, so I was pleased it was a yummy grape scent ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

D is for Dermalogica Dermalogica Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask

It fizzes/bubbles which fits the theme!

Oh this mask is weird. It starts with these little bubbles (left) when it makes contact with the skin and tingles a bit. Then it starts to really bubble up (top right) and tickles. Then this dissipates and it all falls flat almost (bottom right). It says to leave on 3-5 minutes. I think this was closer to 5 minutes wear time this time.
I tried this because of the theme this week, but also because my skin/pores have been feeling really congested (maskne, bad adherence to nighttime routine, etc). My partner and i each tired it a few times before, but I don't think we left it on long enough, I didnโ€™t want it to cause any irritation. Leaving it on for longer definitely was better, and I had no irritation.
This has a sulfur scent (its up there on the ingredient list), but isn't too overpowering.
My skin definitely looked better after, and this morning, but I followed up with the Pharmacy salicylic acid toner and inky list retinol. I think it definitely helped clear my pores a bit, but maybe with more uses would really get in to the more congested ones.
B for now. Will keep testing.

Last week's

Feet mask, from the Sephora Collection for Calming SEPHORA COLLECTION Foot Mask Lavender

Or at least, calming for me. Last week, I had to trek out to the FedEx by the airport to pick up a work package. I thought it would be relatively easy to get to with transit, but alas, they're always so far away from the actual airport. So I ended up walking around fields for a while and my feet were killing me.

That night I put on the lovely SC feet mask overnight to calm and soothe my red angry feet. I usually wear them after wondering around convention centres for work conferences so only wear them for 30 min to an hour. Last week, though, I wore them overnight. Luckily no cut off for circulation and no falling off. There was still serum left to be rubbed into my feet the next morning. My feet felt SO nice and relaxed. I generally do not recommend to leave it on overnight. I have smaller feet and I didnt tape it too tight, so it was roomy but this might not work for everyone.
I'm a little sad these are being discontinued (they're already gone from the Canada site, it looks like), but I'll try the new clean ones when is available.

I've been using the whish foot mask once a week overnight to exfoliate and it is lovely especially when going to get a pedicure is impossible. But just thought I'd highlight for feet mask week.

That mask would be a good one for those just getting into...

That mask would be a good one for those just getting into bubble masks. there's some out there that bubbles get a bit out of control & I end up having to get them out of my eyes ๐Ÿ˜’ @haleyvvvv hopefully the new feet masks are just as good

Re: That mask would be a good one for those just getting into...

Oh no, @sonnydee!! Getting in the eyes sounds unfortunate. Will be looking to avoid those.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv  Love the pictures ๐Ÿ˜ƒ - bubble masks are definitely entertaining! Glad it could help make your skin look a little better! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you, @Shosh85!! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv well that is a gorgeous photo! Sorry it was the cause of so much pain, though - ugh! Happy you had the foot mask, and used it when you needed it. Hope your feet are recovering nicely today ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Beautiful, but dangerous, since I was walking in a bike path on the road. I'm definitely a city gal. My feet felt much better after the mask, thank you, @eshoe!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Yeah I can totally relate, @haleyvvvv! You certainly made lemonade out of lemons there, by sharing this pic:)

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv thanks for the step by step with pictures! Very interesting mask.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you, @ShortErica!! It is an interesting mask, lol.
