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: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Wow this is an impressive month of masking, @missjeanie! Are the ones you have for April, a continuation of these same lines or some of the other lines from TCS? 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Other lines for this month @quspork .  I want to say some of the fusions, some of the animals.  I think all of the holiday and "x infused" ones are done now. I think. lol

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Awesome, I look forward to seeing how those end up working out for you this month, @missjeanie

My mask while you task was this mud mask and grad school work on my computer. This is a 2-piece mask that you leave until dry (or 20-40 minutes). I left it for about 40 minutes, and the mask was about dry. I like this mask because it Sticks well to the face while I was working, and there were no drips to worry about. This mask seems a bit drying (it is, after all, a mud mask), but moisturizer alleviated this. It smelled of a mud mask. If you are looking at packaging, this mask is not the friendliest as it sits between 2 plastic pieces inside of the packaging. I do have a few more so I will use them up, but my skin is getting dryer as I get older so I'm not sure if I would buy more. A+ for its staying power.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@l8totheparty I enjoyed this one as well!!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@l8totheparty  Mud sheet masks are pretty fun! I tried the Rosehip one and it left me feeling really dry, but I loved how soft and smooth my skin was ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Glad this turned out nice for you ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This line of clay sheet masks is good, @l8totheparty! Way to multi/task:) Hope you are getting nearer and nearer to your grad date, so exciting!!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This line is such a nice way to mud mask without the fuss of a wash-off mask. I definitely hear you on the watching out for dryness though, @l8totheparty!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

preach on the skin getting drier as we age @l8totheparty !  I remember liking this mask just as something different to try out, was fun to see a mud mask in a sheet mask.  But like you I don't know that it would be a re-purchase.  Awesome that you got to move around and not worry about drips though!!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@missjeanie @l8totheparty, oh goodness, if skin gets drier as we age, I'm going to have to start hoarding face oils. I'm not sure the supply of oils can meet the demands of my face! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

lol @itsfi  maybe it's not everyone?  I swear when I hit 35 it was like a switch went off. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@missjeanie, I feel like my skin is going through an identity crisis and is trying to find itself. Lately it's been super dry and really sensitive! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

the sensitive part is always the worst @itsfi !

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

N is for Narikiri

Hmmm.... I can't seem to find where I saved my notes on this one, so I'll just have to rely on my short-hand notes and wing it. Sorry about that. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Will do better next time!

Although the mask design on the Narikiri Hello Kitty Mask Pack Lavender is adorable, this is one I'd categorize as a good filler mask, or a fun mask to gift. Though I need put an asterisk on that, as my skin is extremely dehydrated and dry at this time. I love that this cotton mask has a milky essence - probably better described as a slightly runny, watered down milky emulsion essence. There's the faintest  lavender scent to it; I only pick it up when I stick my nose into the packet. The mask itself is slightly large overall for my face size, shape and features; not a deal breaker, especially as that is typical of most sheet mask. Results-wise, my skin feels slightly hydrated and moisturized after using the mask.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Hmmmm, this almost sounds like the Hello Kitty version of the Moschino x Sephora Bear mask, @itsfi ๐Ÿป cute, fun, and generously sized๐Ÿ˜†

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe, this was oversized, but the Moschino bear would best it in a duel of sizes! The latter smells better too; at least to me it does. ๐Ÿฏ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I'm surprised there wasn't more of a lavender scent on this one given the name but that's probably for the better as lavender can easily be overwhelming. the design is super cute though, @itsfi!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I was surprised as well @quspork! I've tried other masks within this collection and they've had a noticeable scent, so I was bracing myself for a lot of lavender coming my way. lol. Maybe I got a bad batch or it's an older one? 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  I'm not too big on lavender, but I'd totally use this one just for the bow and whiskers ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜บ Glad it could give some decent results!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85, the ones in this pack had barely any scent. I was happy about that, especially since my skin is extra sensitive right now. I wish sheet masks had an icon on the back or the front that indicated the strength of the fragrance or scent. Something like one of those thermometers for fundraising or goals that said whether it was light or medium or strong would be nice. I know it would depend on whose nose is doing the sniffer test and would be subjective, but there are times I feel like it would help. Like if I knew something smelled strongly of X, I would pass. Oh well, wishful thinking. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi The thermometer feature would definitely come in handy for me! I really just wish I could sniff things through the phone - I really want to place an order with Bath & Body Works, but am afraid to order anything without knowing how it smells first ๐Ÿ˜…
