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 So happy you enjoyed this one! I've tried this and the Oil Soak Glow mask and besides their scents, I liked them both! It's too bad they're discontinued! ๐Ÿ˜ข

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85, maybe theyโ€™re just repackaging or reformulating to be without fragrance? Thatโ€™s what Iโ€™ll tell myself. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Interesting but not surprising that these are heavily fragranced. It always makes me wonder what a mask would smell like if the brand didnโ€™t add fragrance to it - I mean, did someone think it smelled really bad so they had to mask it? Or is fragrance added because they were hoping to add some aromatherapy benefit? 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  The same thoughts go through my mind. What I don't get is why floral is such a popular scent? If these cream and oil masks had a strong fruity smell I wouldn't mind so much .... I'd love to try a watermelon cream soak mask ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv I'm not especially a fan of those tonymoly masks either

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yeah, the "I'm X" masks are not good at all, IMO, @lmaster. The Caviar one was okay, but was just average.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv  I feel you on the "I just haven't been updating... blah work and pandemic etc."  I'm impressed you've kept photos and track of grades with so many!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you, @missjeanie!! I did use 4 of them in the last week, so they were more fresh in my mind, lol. I keep taking pictures with the intent to post, but don't quite get that far.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv Your summary is lovely, sometimes thatโ€™s all thatโ€™s needed! Curious, where did you find the Huxley? I love their calming mask and moisturizer!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you, @eshoe!! I got it from PinknBlossam, but it is the only product through there. I would be interested in trying more of their products though!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@haleyvvvv  Nice job! Looks like a lot of great masks! Too bad the Tony Moly masks were unimpressive! They've always been more of a miss than a hit for me.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you, @Shosh85!! Yeah, I can't say I've been impressed by them. The Caviar one was fine, it was an okay everyday mask, hence the C (i.e. passing). The other one was trash, though.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Always so good to see you here, @haleyvvvv! Look at all your masking! I've wondered about Vitamasques as a brand; good to see that you enjoyed it. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you, @itsfi !! It is the only Vitamasque mask I've tried, I think I have one of the Ruby Sheet masks to try as well. But it was great!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Last night, C for Silver Coating and extra lip Conditioning:

The Suqqu is a repeat that I use a couple of days after noticeably stressed skin. I can leave it on and forget about it, which happens way more frequently than I would like. 

I have been testing out the Henne lip products for a couple of months now and I am in love๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿฅฐ. They offer a sample of their products online, and here I tried the Nordic Berries Lip Scrub and Lip Mask. The scrub is exfoliating but leaves a bit of residue to be washed off; which can be good if you are not able to rinse immediately-bonus, your lips remain magically hydrated! Both Nordic Berries and Rose Diamonds are equally lovely; I prefer the slight berry scent but the Rose in the Rose Diamonds is so subtle it is almost unnoticeable.

The Lip Mask is a blend of organic scents and oils and lasts waaaay longer than I anticipate, which is perfect. For a pot application, I want to apply as little as possible. This could easily replace my Laneige when (and if ever) I finish. I plan to explore more from the brand, but I am content if the lip products are my favorites. 


The Bio-Miracle Energy Mask with Silver Coating was actually quite an enjoyable, no frills mask. It is loaded with ingredients that should make my skin look years younger, which is fine and would try again. No noticeable scent, just a bit of irritation throughout. Maybe from the Willow Bark Extract?

The mask itself has a pretty silver pattern. I wondered if I was supposed to apply it to my skin with the pattern facing it, but ended up flipping it around pattern side out.

No blemishes today, skin is back to normal.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  Ooooh, the sheet mask is so pretty!  So happy to hear your skin is back to normal and this didn't cause any lasting irritation! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It is pretty, @Shosh85! My only issue with it as I wasnโ€™t sure which side to put in my skin! Since silver is in the title, I thought maybe something about the silver is supposed to be facing it, but in the process I discovered something new. I patted on extra serum, before flipping it around, which means all the extra good stuff went straight to my skin. Something I will remember for future masking;)

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe sounds like a wonderful brand of lip products!! Glad your skin is back on track

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

The Henne Lip mask is really lovely, @lmaster. You can buy samples of it (along with the lip scrubs) on their site, too!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe, Henne makes some lovely lip products. With the sheet mask, did you notice any of the sebum and blemish control it claims to provide?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi it certainly felt like it was working on my skin. It didnโ€™t feel drying, but it wasnโ€™t your typical hydrating serum, either. I would venture to say that it served it purpose and would be one I would pick up again (or better yet, have in hand) to use post breakout. I think the fact that it has centella asiatica helps; I was concerned it would be too drying but that wasnโ€™t the case.
