6ADE6F2B-300D-4DE5-8A89-DEBA0CC45743.gif

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

Spoiler
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 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Oh thank you, @itsfi! I think I will subscribe to the site, then. I still have not had a true mask haul, yet a long list of wishes:) I appreciate the info!

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

@eshoe, it's just so much easier putting together the wish list than it is to pick and choose which masks to purchase off of it. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

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

Spoken like someone who knows, @itsfi ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hahaha! I probably find myself in that situation more times than I care to admit. ๐Ÿ˜† 

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

@itsfi  Oooh, both the ampoule and mask sound amazing! I've never heard of this one, but it definitely sounds like one I need to get my hands on! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ

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

@Shosh85, this multi-step mask pack exceeded my expectations! โ™ฅ๏ธ I think itโ€™s one that would like! Nourished and glowy skin! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ It and the 3-step pack will be in the top 5 of my list for the next mask haul. ๐Ÿ› 

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

@itsfi  Oh my goodness, that serum sounds lovely. I love the ingredients on this one (I'm definitely writing this one down for a future haul). 

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

My skin could be very happy with this serum in the rotation @PrettyPaint! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Making note of it for the fall/winter routine. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

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

This sounds like a really lovely 2 step mask, @itsfi. It's hard to argue with being bright, glowy, and radiant at the end of a masking session!

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

Exactly @quspork! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ The results were spectacular! โ™ฅ๏ธ It sounds like the moisturizer included in the 3-step pack may be too heavy for warm weather seasons, but this 2-step worked beautifully for me this time of year. 

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

D is for Detoskin 

Spoiler
This celery cleanse mask from Detoskin is a very thin well saturated mask. The fit was average - it was a bit too narrow for my face but otherwise fine. It does not have any strong scent. 

I left it on for 15 minutes and it was still fairly wet. After my skin felt hydrated but there was no brightening. 

My skin did feel feel tacky for about half an hour after. Iโ€™m not having good luck with that lately and I was starting to wonder if I needed a dehumidifier but I used a creame shop one and that wasnโ€™t an issue so it must be the mask. 

overall, I would use this again but itโ€™s nothing spectacular

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

@Kim888, I'm not particularly a fan of celery as a veggie, but this mask sounded promising initially - thin, narrow, well saturated, light scent. It's too bad it didn't end up being a standout and that it stayed tacky for so long; at least you got some hydration out of it.

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

@Kim888 I felt the same way about this one, and their Kale mask as well. A very โ€˜fillerโ€™ filler-mask.

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

@Kim888  Sorry to hear it was nothing special- sounds like a decent filler mask ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Too bad about the tack, @Kim888. At least there was some decent hydration out of it!

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

@Kim888 well, that's too bad, it sounded so promising too

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

@Kim888  That sounds nice that there was plenty of essence, but too bad about the tackiness. I tend to have issues with that as well...though I don't mind too much as long as I don't have to apply makeup right afterwards. 

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

@FullCoverageBB, if you're interesting in trying the strawberry face mask, this deal might make it worthwhile to pick up some masks from the clean line.

D for Dewytree 

Dewytree 100 Mask - CicaDewytree 100 Mask - Cica

Spoiler
The serum for this sheet mask is made of cica, and just cica. ๐Ÿ˜ @Shosh85, I thought I'd be able to share with you what my take on cica's scent after using this mask, but my nose didn't pick up any scent from this 100% centella asiatica extract serum. Hmmm... ๐Ÿค”
 
This mask is drenched with serum and it is runny and drippy coming straight out of the packet; it's also light mocha / tan in color, which having saturated the sheet material, tints it a similar shade. The sheet mask material is said to be made up of a blend of cotton, eucalyptus fiber and algae/seaweed. It's soft, thin-leaning and lightweight. Size-wise, it's overly large for my face shape, which is standard for sheet masks, and, as with most sheet masks, a few incisions are needed to the corners of the openings for the eyes and mouth, to help the fabric lie flat against my skin. The mask bunches up ever so slightly along the sides of my face which is not common but is easily remedied. I love cica for how it calms and soothes my skin, reduces discoloration from acne / PIH or dark spots, and hydrates. This mask did not disappoint and accomplished all those things in the half hour I kept it on my face. So far, I've used the cica and quince mask from this Dewytree 100 line and of the two, I prefer this cica version.  

ETA: Shosh, @WinglessOne picked up a scent when she first reviewed this mask about a year ago:  https://community.sephora.com/t5/Skincare-Aware/Mask-of-the-Week-Challenge/m-p/5547108/highlight/tru...

 

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

@itsfi  I remember @WinglessOne reviewing this one and her description of the scent! It makes me really want to try and grow a Cica plant! This mask certainly sounds great! It's hard to go wrong with 100% Cica! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

@Shosh85, how great would that be if you were to grow a cica plant?!!! I am barely keeping my aloe plant alive; the orchids are so much easier for me to care for. ๐Ÿ˜‚  I've enjoyed the masks I've used so far from this Dewytree 100 line. I can't seem to pick up a scent from any of them though. โ˜น๏ธ But I'll keep trying! ๐Ÿ˜‰
