Welcome to the 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge! 
We love hearing about every masking experience, on or off-theme, and suggestions are always welcome.

Theme: It is National Opposite Day on January 25th, so join in the fun and explore some skincare opposites. Need some inspiration? Sweet/Spicy, "A"/"Z," detox/hydrating masks worn simultaneously on differing parts of the face, masks with ingredients from places in both western/eastern hemisphere, etc.

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, fit, adherence, mask type (hydrating, brightening, exfoliating, detox, sleeping, etc.) as well as your overall experience.

Most importantly: Would you repurchase it? 


Second most important: Have fun and merry masking!

Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

Re: I like the milk jug packaging on that mask @itsfi but it...

Hahaha @sonnydeeπŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ The milk carton packaging was what drew me in. I’d like to say that it was the ingredients list that sealed the deal but I really picked it up because I wanted to see if it smelled like strawberry milk. 😝 I’ll stick with them because both steps are good. 

I’m so excited your Lanolips trio set will be here soon! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on them.

Masking Hacks 

Excellent: Invisibobble & my Oaui Γ— Summer Fridays headband; masking schedule 

Okay: Cosmedix roller (for sheet type masks) 

Meh: SC mask holder

B & Y 

Better Use Your Sheets Masks Before Expiration 

I was up late working quite a few nights this week and on a few of them I decided to do a sheet mask in bed rather than a rinse off one. 

I tried two: TCFS Pumpkin 24k Gold Mask and I Dew Care Jump Start

Fit: Clearly not ideal, lol, especially on the bottom. Was super annoying to separate the mask from the support sheets. Left on for 20-40 minutes (I can't remember, I was falling asleep, lol). Was mostly dried down.
Serum: So much! I spread all over my arms, neck and hands. A little bit of tack after.
Effect: Definitely helped my post week off of skincare and hormonal skin. My skin was definitely a bit brighter, smoother and most definitely softer after. 

B : nice effects, but a bit higher price, mess to get out and use and terrible fit.

Fit: Meh, standard too big doesn't fit well. A bit stiff. Left on 30-40 minutes. 

Serum: A lot in the package, kinda milky watery gel consistency. No scent. Very little tack. 
Effects: No real effects on pores or wrinkles but minor brightening effects.
C : No truly negative side effects, but no truly good outcomes. Solid average C. Lol.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

β€˜No bad effects’ is sometimes all you can ask for, @haleyvvvv πŸ˜‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Lol, truly, @eshoe!! 🀣

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Too bad Jumpstart was underwhelming, @haleyvvvv.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you, @quspork!! I had a trio, so now just one more to use.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv  Glad the TCFS mask turned out nice for you! I wasn't super impressed with it, especially considering the price - but i have become a lot more picky about the masks I'll repurchase. πŸ˜‰

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you, @Shosh85!! Yes, it is very expensive for the results. If I saw a box on sale though, would probably grab tho. In general I am very picky about rebuying masks though, lol.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv  Sorry they didn’t wow you!! I’ve been meaning to try the TCFS pumpkin mask!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather In all fairness, the TCFS was a good one!! It just was pricey and didn't fit the bottom half of my face. A "B" is a great rating for me, definitely would consider repurchasing. For me an "A" is something that makes me want to use it in place of my fave wash off mask.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

That's good to know your scale @haleyvvvv since we all grade differently. I think sometimes we are so excited with A masks that we forget B is still a good one too just not a wow. πŸ™‚

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Exactly, @ShortErica!! πŸ₯°

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@haleyvvvv @sonnydee I liked quite a few of the I dew care as well,,I can't remember if I've tried this one πŸ€”

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster @sonnydee In all fairness, these may be a little past their expiration...so like maybe they work better at peak effectiveness. Or just different skin needs? I have some of their peel off masks to try, which I'm excited to get in to.

I like your plan of attack @haleyvvvv ( planning ahead for the week of wash offs) kudos to you for it! I guess, I'm in the minority.😜I've really liked I dew care sheet masks, they were my gateway drug. πŸ˜‚

I need a plan, @sonnydee!! Otherwise, I just end up with decision fatigue because there are too many masks.

 

I'm glad the masks work for you!! πŸ‘πŸ‘ and that they led you into the wonderful world of masking!!

RE: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Another lightweight sleeping mask for my beauty sleep tonight. This time it’s TonyMoly I’m Rose. It’s very light and leave a very thin smooth coating over my skin. I would call it a good decent budget mask. I actually have used it during the day when I’m sitting hours at the computer near an AC vent and it helps a touch on top of lightweight lotions in addition to my serums.

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

@Weetart Sounds like the perfect touch of moisture πŸ‘Œ 🌹

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

Is this mask scented @Weetart ?

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

Lightly, it fades pretty quickly. But just enough if you are just about to pass out.
