๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–


Welcome to the 2024 Masking Challenge! 


This year is going to be a little different - simplified. Easy. Every month will have a new theme, and that's it. Feel free to join in whenever and wherever. Most importantly - have fun!

Spring Fling - Baskets and bouquets, showers of much-anticipated rain...this month's focus is herbal and floral sensory delights ๐Ÿ’ฎ

JanuaryFresh Starts - Time for a re-set, or morning masking? However you see it, this month is all about new beginnings.
FebruaryWinter Love - Whether it's a mask you adore, or something extra-special to care for dry winter skin, this month is for some soothing TLC.
MarchMarch Madness - Competition is in the air! Find a $ dupe of a $$$ mask that is share-worthy? Or find a dupe that works even better than the original? Details, please!
AprilSpring Fling - Baskets and bouquets, showers of much-anticipated rain...this month's focus is herbal and floral sensory delights.
MayDew Drops - May Day lore says to wash your face in the dew you collect in the morning of the first day of May for radiant skin. This month is for absorbing all of that good-for-you H2O.
JuneSummer Sunshine - Ice cream, sunglasses, SPF, check! Once the sun is down (or before it's up), extra care is most necessary. How do you give your skin cooling repair?

Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–


Not floral or spring-y but still amazing!!


Seems like this one is discontinued??

Shocker.... Because it's the BEST bio cellulose mask I've ever used ๐Ÿ˜” 


This mask was actually drenched in serum, it looked like a hybrid between a cream and serum. 

So it wasn't as thick as a cream, but it was milky in color, with a thinner consistency.


Second skin fits this mask, it adhered to my face like a suction ๐Ÿคฃ there was no moving around at all. 


I loved it and wore it for 20 minutes


After removing, my skin absorbed the serum without feeling dry, it was lightly moisturized and my skin felt so good!!

March 2024

3.2024 Collage.png




Allergies and a couple instances of irritated skin meant a low-key masking month in March.

Innisfree clay mask is a tried-and-true mask for clearing / detoxifying. The clay mask is gentle and effective - working to decongest my skin of impurities and helping to reduce the size of those pesky pimples that surface every now and again. Innisfree has since repackaged their products, but the mask in the new packaging is generally the same as this previous version. 


K18 hair mask has quickly become a favorite for hair care. The combo of the peptide prep shampoo and leave on conditioner has especially been a hit. I was first introduced to these beauties in a gratis package but have since purchased full sizes of both products - for myself and as gifts. The mask is quick and easy - apply to hair after shampoo and give it 4 minutes to activate itself and DONE! Hair is soft and smooth๐Ÿ’– 


I wasnโ€™t aware that Lโ€™Occitane made sheet masks until I spied this Lโ€™Occitane Instant Illuminating Sheet Mask in my local store. The sheet is ever so slightly thicker than your traditional Korean sheet mask, but is saturated in a milky emulsion that feels cooling upon contact with skin. Thereโ€™s still plenty of this lightly floral scented serum that remains atop the skin after 30 minutes but the excess is easily absorbed, without stickiness or tack, and skin is nicely hydrated and moisturized. Those with oily, combination or normal skin might want to wring out the extra serum before applying the sheet to the face. Those with dry or very dry skin, on the other hand, will he pleased with how nourishing this mask is and the cooling feeling will add to the pleasant experience with this beauty. 


LalaRecipe Glow Face Moisture Mask has a few things going  for it - key ingredients look good and the sparkles embedded in the hydrogel are pretty. That said, there were also some hiccups with this sheet mask, at least for me. Adherence wasnโ€™t great - both the top and bottom halves kept sliding down my face and the openings for the eyes were far too narrow and unwieldy. I was having such a difficult time with it that I actually removed the mask and called it a day after about 5 minutes. Sigh.

innisfree Super Volcanic AHA Pore Clearing Clay Mask 3.38 oz / 100 ml 

K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask 1.7 oz/ 50 mL L 


Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Oh I didn't know L had sheet masks either!! @itsfi ok ok I'm interested ๐Ÿ˜„

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

It's such a good one @lmaster! And a pretty penny, too! $10.50, which, in the grand scheme of things, there are sheet masks that are more expensive, but when you've seen ones for $1.00 that perform remarkably well, I do pause at the price. BUT, the milky serum was what my skin wanted. I have a recollection that L'Occitane should be having a friends & family sale this month so maybe see if you can pick it up then?

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

That's a great idea!! @itsfi 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

L'Occitane's Friends & Family is going on now. 20% off with code: FRIEND - looks to be sitewide so the sheet mask, restock the overnight oil-in-serum, the almond cleansing oil, etc., etc. @lmaster 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

After seeing @itsfi having so much success with the JMSolution brand, I decided it was time to try some out too!





JMsolution Cure in Colla-Biome Two-Steps Eye Mask


This eye mask is divided into two sections, one with the serum and one with the eye masks. You are supposed to squeeze the serum so that it releases into the section with the masks, making sure to fully saturate the masks.


Material:  Cotton


Serum:  Very slightly slimy/gel-like consistency that was thin but not runny.


Scent: None that I could detect


Fit: They were a good size, comfortable to wear and stayed on pretty well


Wear Time: About a half hour


Tack: None



Smooth, hydrated and noticeably brighter



I still have a few more of these to use, but I'd definitely repurchase when I'm out (if they're not too hard to find - found these at Marshall's๐Ÿ˜ฌ)


Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85  Oooh, these look great. I'll have to look around for them.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@PrettyPaint  Yup, I'll be looking around for more too! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85, what a fun, interactive eye mask! I really like the JMSolution brand; it's one of the ones at the top of my list as far as overall brands go for sheet masks. ๐Ÿ’– And what a find at Marshall's! Will be interested to hear if you notice or feel any firming from repeated use.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  I've definitely been keeping my eyes out for more from the brand!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This is interesting, I've never seen an eye mask like this before @Shosh85 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster  Me either! I've seen full face masks like this, but not an eye mask ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–


This one is another love! 

Great fit, no crazy strong scent


Plenty of extra serum


Wear time was 15 minutes


My skin felt hydrated and balanced without a ton of moisturizing which is what I was hoping for.


In terms of feeling balanced my skin wasn't dripping with serum that wasn't absorbed, it was perfect 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster  Hydrated and balanced sounds great. I don't think I've heard of this brand before!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@PrettyPaint I'm very interested in seeking out more to try!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster, this is a nice brand for sheet masks; I'm partial to their cream based one in the cooler seasons.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Oh that's a good idea to use the cream ones in the winter or fall @itsfi 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster  I've heard such good things about this brand! I think @WinglessOne reviewed some before that sounded great as well! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2024 Masking Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85  Yep, Iโ€™m an Abib fan. Their Heartleaf Stone cleansing โ€œsoapโ€ is my nightly PM facial cleanser, and their Mild Acidic pH Heartleaf Fit Sheet Mask is still my skinโ€™s favorite sheet mask by anyone. I like some of their other masks and products, too. Iโ€™m glad you liked this one, @lmaster !
