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’–

Aww, thank you @ather! ๐Ÿค— Iโ€™m glad I tried - the mask and the natto sushi. Itโ€™s alright that this roll wasnโ€™t my favorite; I had some yummy sashimi too. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‹ 

 

ETA 4/6/21: @ather, I'm not sure where your post that I'm responding to here went. โ˜น๏ธ It was here for me to respond to yesterday. I've reported it on the feedback thread and hopefully your post will pop back up soon. ๐Ÿคž

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

@itsfi  Interesting. I was having issues posting yesterday but I thought it was my internet. Thanks for reporting it. 

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

Very odd, right @ather?! Hope youโ€™re not experiencing any more issues with posting!

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

You are my people @itsfi !!!  Ordering take out to purely to match a mask!  I love it.  I'd never heard of Natto before last week.  Not sure I'd seek it out either, but if I happened upon a menu I'd likely try it just to say I did.  Sounds like an excellent mask ingredient though!  I'll be curious to see which you prefer, this or the Mediheal

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

@missjeanie, yes!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿค— Iโ€™ve no idea which informs the other - do my food choices or cravings inform what mask I use? Or is my mask du jour influencing what Iโ€™m eating? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ So far, itโ€™s not been a bad thing! 

Takeout was a better way to go - Iโ€™m sure I would have messed it up if I tried making natto myself. ๐Ÿ˜† 

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

An accidental mask-while-you-task yesterday morning, thanks to a double-duty cleanser:)

My skin needed a gentle cleansing, but I wanted to do a quick hydrating mask. I remembered @WinglessOne sharing that the The INKEY List Oat Cleansing Balm 5 oz/ 150 mL can be used as a mask, yay! I used to use the Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm 1.7 oz/ 50 mL in the same way, and love cleansing balms in general to give my skin a little extra love when time is limited. I wore the ILIA Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil which is not too sticky/icky, but lasts longer than other thin lip oils Iโ€™ve tried. This shade is a little drab on me, but I will have no problem finishing it since it wears so well. Finally, a little under eye masking with the Elisha Coy Snail Hydrogel Eye Patches. These little gels stick pretty well despite their snaily-slippery-goodness!

It was fun to discover a few ways to fill in the gap, and to get in a little extra care, even when I didnโ€™t have more time to devote to masking. Thank you @l8totheparty for a much-needed and appreciated theme!

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

@eshoe Ohhhhh I have that Inky list balm waiting in the wings.  How do you find it as a cleanser?  Or is it better as a mask?

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

@eshoe sounds like a nice and soothing sesh

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

The Inkey List Cleansing Balm makes for a nice first cleanser @eshoe. ๐Ÿ˜€ Good for all skin types but especially dry or sensitive skin. 

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

It is very gentle, @itsfi. I canโ€™t help but think of oats and chicken pox together, though. Childhood memories like that make a lasting impression; oats = comfort โ˜บ๏ธ

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

@eshoe  Sounds like a nice masking session! Glad to hear you're enjoying the cleansing balm - that's something I was planning on picking up soon ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

The first few times I tried to snag it, it was OOS @Shosh85. I definitely use it more as a quick hydrating mask than as a cleanser, now that I know ๐Ÿ˜Š Mine has a slight โ€˜oilโ€™ scent; not too strong, but enough that I donโ€™t reach for it daily. @WinglessOne didnโ€™t notice a scent so it could just be me๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ I would be curious to hear about your thoughts if you try it!

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

I love the idea of the cleansing balm as a mask @eshoe .  I have one just waiting to be cracked into when I finish my current oil.  I want to say I used to use the Sunday Riley cleanser as a mask at one point too?  How do you find this one compares to other cleansing balms for you?

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

@eshoe  Glad you got to have a little extra mask time! I need to order this cleanser! 

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

I used this Stewardess Mask Pack Business Class Mask by FG Beauty for last week's theme (mask while you task). It's advertised as being for flight attendants, so I figured this kind of fit the theme from last week.
It fit nicely and was fresh and hydrating. It had a standard mask smell. The serum was kind of a gel and cream mixture, so it adhered pretty nicely. Overall, it was a great filler mask - not amazing results, but a nice, refreshing morning mask.

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

I would love to see a fight attendant sporting a mask @PrettyPaint 

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

@lmaster  Haha I would love that! 

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

@PrettyPaint  Never heard of this one before. Glad it turned out decent for you! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Thanks so much @Shosh85 

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

@PrettyPaint @Interesting! I havenโ€™t heard of that brand before! Too bad it was a bit meh! 

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

@Kim888  Yeah, decent enough but not worth a repurchase probably ๐Ÿ™‚
