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.

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

Used the blank pellet that I dropped in the pouch to soak up all the goodness left.

Y for Y was this discontinued!? ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

I did this mask recently so I won't review it again, but I bought the wash off mask from ulta after verifying that this was discontinued. Its on sale at Ulta $19 instead of $38.๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค




Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  The packaging on this one is so cute. I don't think I realized it was discontinued. I remember trying it when it was first offered on ulta and I'm pretty sure I had positive feelings about it! Hopefully the wash off is good.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

That's such a bummer!!! @sonnydee 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  So sorry this one was discontinued. Hopefully the wash off one is just as good! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It'll definitely make a appearance on the thread @ather @itsfi ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@sonnydee  Happy to hear it's a love for you, but so sad to hear it's been discontinued! Why do companies do this to us? ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I just hope they went from a sheet mask to a wash off to improve the experience even more @Shosh85 but i think ulta is going to stop carrying Dearpacker all together๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ž

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Love your Y theme here @sonnydee! So sorry the sheet mask has been discontinued. Will be interested in your take on how the wash off version performs and compares to the sheet mask. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I hate when a favorite product gets discontinued, @sonnydee. I hope the wash-off version works just as well for you.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I hope I like it even more ๐Ÿ˜ @quspork I have a feeling they changed this mask from a hydrogel to a wash off so all the goodness soaks in more. With the sheet mask, the mask itself feels like it dries out really fast & the serum was really thin & it didn't feel like it clung to the mask well. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I can't wait to hear your review of the wash-off, @sonnydee!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thatโ€™s a great point @sonnydee ! I hope you love the new mask! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Okay... A few catch up posts!



Cosmetea Lavender tea balancing control.  I can truly say that in the course of under a week I don't even remember doing this mask.  This means that while it was not crazy amazing, it wasn't awful either.  

The SC eye mask was a lovely biocellulose material.  I don't remember having any really big opinions on this one either, other than 4$ for one set of eye masks seems like a lot compared to the jars of eye masks.  Granted, the material on this one makes it way better than some of the gels that fall down to my jowls.  I have more of these, and if you needed a couple bucks to hit a free shipping or promo you were excited about, sure, grab a set... but are they life changing? no. 

The PTR Irish Mud is one of the things I had in project pan and one I still have a shot at finishing.  This is a lovely mud mask.  My skin is so dry and dehydrated right now but it can still take this mud mask!  I find the jar size on the PTR masks to be ridiculously large, but if I came across one at a killer deal or one of the smaller sized jars without all the other ones that accompany in a kit, I'd grab it.  

The Feel Mindful mask is from Ipsy I'm pretty sure.  --  Side tangent -- Ipsy... why do I do this?  I end up paying 20$ a month for a make up bag I don't need and 4 samples I'm not really that interested in.  I usually end up with one item that I'm into trying.  I could just spend 25$ at Sephora and get a product I actually want with a GWP?  But I want surprises in the mail... These are the things I think about but still don't do anything about because the pink bag surprise every month in the mail is the fun part.  -- tangent out-- this mask is nothing special.  I can say that I don't think it does a dang thing.  I've been doing the PTR Irish Mud in my "pores zones" and this one on the rest of my face.  Meh.  It hasn't soothed anything, but it hasn't irritated either.  Maybe the adaptogen mushrooms are gonna make me look like I'm 40 once I'm 60 and I just don't know it yet?






Dr. Jart Shake & Shot, I don't remember which variety this one is.  Lets just call it the Orange and Teal varietal.  The lid on this is just ridiculous.  It certainly deserves the creepy baby nickname.  The other thing... the lid does nothing but hinder me getting all the product out of the cup.  Mask gets stuck up in the crevices and I'm not going to town to get it all outta there.  I am glad to have tried this mask.  It didn't feel as involved as other modelling masks, I think because the cup was already there?  Or I'm just extra lazy and don't like walking the 20 feet to get a bowl from the kitchen? Either way, the two steps combined quickly and easily, and they smeared all over my face, neck and decollate quite easily.  This is easily enough for two masks in my opinion, but I wasn't going to waste it so, it worked out as a face/body mask for me.  Directions don't say to wash off, however.... I got it in my hair.  Most of the mask came off in large chunks with no issue.  I did have issue getting it out of my hairline.  Note to self... be more careful next time you use one of these (I think I have two more in my collection, which will look smaller without the cups in it, gotta get these used up lol).  I ended up doing the mask in the morning and had my shower in the afternoon (yep, working from home).  The good news was that I didn't need to add a bunch of moisturizing products after using the mask.  I actually want to say that I didn't even moisturize afterwards.  Is this mask a winner?  Well it's not a looser.  

The Ok but first Coffee mask is one that I've had a hot minute and figured I should enjoy with an iced coffee ice cream float.  I didn't have ice cream so it was an iced coffee with sugar free s'mores syrup.  I blame everyone here for my ice cream addiction issues.  Okay, the mask... well I don't know why, but I thought it was going to be a wash off.  It's actually a sheet mask, with a pretty average cotton material and a syrup/serum on the thicker side of liquids.  No coffee scent.  This bummed me out.  I'm no ingredient savant, but I did like that there was a much shorter list and most of what I saw looked good to me.  I'll say this mask for me was pretty average.  My skin looked nice afterwards, but it was the kind of nice that I get from most of my sheet masks.  Nothing crazy outstanding like I was hoping for.  I tried to find the company who makes this mask, I thought the coffee cup for the box was super cute and figured they might have other catchy packaging... no luck.  I got them from a random little shop outside of Detroit, that I'd be hard pressed to find again.  If I came across more from whomever this is, I'd try em, but I'm not going to loose sleep over not knowing the company... but for realz... shouldn't the company name be on there?


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie it took me some time to come to the same conclusion as you in reference to the subscriptions... They are nice when you are first getting into makeup,, but I literally have cancelled them all now. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Completely agree @lmaster .  With a collection my size it's just a waste. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Super disappointed the coffee one didnโ€™t have a coffee scent. And also bummed you didnโ€™t have any ice cream to put in your iced coffee. I recently learned homemade marshmallows taste super yummy in coffee!! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhhhh @ather fresh marshmallows in my coffee wouldn't be awful!  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  I feel the same as you about Ipsy - I finally cancelled when I realized I was just doing it for the bag ๐Ÿ˜† 


I saw that pack of coffee masks in Ross once, but didn't get it because it was missing a couple. I don't remember the brand name and I find it odd that it's not listed on the mask packs themselves ๐Ÿค” do you still happen to have the coffee cup container it came in? - I'm wondering if the name is on there? 

As far as mix-it-yourself masks go, I personally think the Shake & Shots are the easiest I've used. I agree there's a design flaw though - they should just use a regular rounded or flat lid. The crevices in the creepy baby face definitely make it hard to scrape everything out. ๐Ÿฅด๐Ÿ˜†(I think @itsfi and I had a conversation about the lid for this at one point too๐Ÿ˜‰)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 I checked the coffee cup for a name as well.  Same as the actual packet, nada.  Maybe the name is just "face masks"?  So odd.  

Since I've now used the shake shot, I've gotta say I'm going to be more likely to do the others after seeing how easy it was.  

And yes.  Dang ipsy.  I really should just give a 25$ credit card number out to people to make random beauty purchases for me so I still get a surprise.  Hmmmm... now we may be onto something!
