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

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!

 

February: Winter โ„๏ธ Love ๐Ÿ’— - Whether it's a mask you adore, or something extra-special to care for dry winter skin, this month is for some soothing TLC.

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 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi awesome!! Sounds like your skin is happy ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@lmaster, it still has its moments but overall, but it's gotten better. Skincare, masking, it's a journey, and a work in progress.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Not forgotten but definitely a wonder! Clarins Cryo-Flash Instant Lift Effect & Glow Boosting Face Mask 2.5 oz / 75 g tones, tightens and tackles time in ten minutes, all with a lovely cooling sensation that lasts long after the pale mint gel cream is tissued off, leaving skin feeling more hydrated, supple and slightly more taut. ๐Ÿ’—

This jar will last me a while but it is one that I would repurchase once I make my way through it. And now, off to pull out and set on my counter a couple of masks for @missjeanie marvelous forgotten wonders theme! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi oh I agree, this one is a winner!! It was in my November favorites too ๐Ÿ˜„ 

 I also wanted to let you know I tried another one of the SEPHORA COLLECTION Hot Cocoa Face Mask 1 mask / pack and guess what, this one had a playdough scent to it,,, guess what else I found out, there was a tiny pin poke hole in it. I'm not sure if the hole lead to the scent smelling off, I'd be curious if yours happened to have a hole in it that went undetected, or somehow was exposed to the air before we actually opened it, either way super disappointed 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Yaaaay! We're mask twinsies @lmaster! How often are you using the Clarins cryo mask?

 

Oh noooooo!!! You picked up the playdoh smell?!! Grrrr!! I was holding out hope that I just got a dud! Ugh. Okay, I'll pull my other one out and try it. Wait, what?!! There was a pin poke hole in the mask?! Do you remember where you saw it? Lemme know when you get a chance and I'll take a look. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I'm using it about 2-3 x a week, my skin feels softer and softer the more I use it ๐Ÿ™Œ 

I'm going to do my photos for my empties tomorrow and I'll pull it out, I actually think my other one has a hole in it as well. 

I'll lyk and take a pic of the hole so you can see it

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I have not looked at my last mask yet to see if it has a hole in it, but if it does, something is suspicious ๐Ÿค”

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

omg @lmaster, if only this platform had sound to accompany my reply. There would have been a huuuuge intake of breath and a big gasp when I saw your pic. WHAT?!!!! Oh, definitely suss (as I think the kids are saying these days ๐Ÿ˜‚ or maybe they used to say it. If I know about it, it's probably something they used to say. I'm not current). I'm even more intrigued now. 

 

This could be a mystery caper for the masking thread, Inspector Lmaster!!! ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi that word is fluent in my household ๐Ÿ˜‚ with two boys 8&9!! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This sounds like a good one, @itsfi. Soft and supple are always nice results to have! Clarins is such an underrated brand IMO. They deserve more love!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Sheโ€™s a beauty @quspork! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ’ฏ agree - Iโ€™ve been a fan of Clarins masks for some time but it seems like theyโ€™ve really upped their game (and potentially their marketing) of their skincare line simultaneously with their reformulations and repackaging. What Clarins products do you like or love?

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi Love their Orange Extract face polish for a gentle physical exfoliant. And their body tonic is a nice oil to have on hand this time of year. Are there any other masks of their that you like?

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@quspork, their SOS comfort mask (itโ€™s in a yellow tube) is a good one. The other two masks in the SOS series are good too but I like the comfort one best out of those three. I have another of their mask en route. Am excited to give it a try. This Clarins rabbit hole ๐Ÿ•ณ๏ธ is gonna be expensive! ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi This sounds absolutely lovely, the cooling sensation would be fantastic for a pick-me-up in the morning time. Thanks for sharing! โค๏ธ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

That's true @QueenMarceline; I've been rushed to get out the door most mornings so I hadn't thought about using the Clarins in the morning but you're right, that cooling feeling would be a lovely. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I love that picture of the product. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Thank you so much @Samtian! I'm pleased with it. It was a bit of a happy accident and the frame turned out better than I could have imagined. Sometimes that's the way it goes.

A little "me" time 

sc foot mask.jpg

 

 

Spoiler
The holiday edition of the Sephora Collection foot mask is something I purchase every year, usually in multiples - so I have a few for myself and several to include in care packages, as stocking stuffers, or for house guests during the holidays. This year was no exception. I first used this mask about a month ago (the photos are from that masking session but the performance and results this go around are pretty much the same. 
 
There's a lot to love about these foot masks - easy to use, quick (recommended wear time is 20 minutes, but there's enough serum in the packet for a longer wear, if desired or needed), and they perform beautifully. Usually, the hardest decision to be made is whether to just sit back, unwind and relax with them on, with a book or TV show; or, whether to put on a pair of socks so I can walk around the house and possibly do some chores. With Thanksgiving dinner complete, dishes done and most folks either watching the football game or doing some online shopping, I decided to go the relaxation route, with a pair of beauties secured to my ankles, a glass of wine on the side table, and my laptop open to the BIC forums. 
 
The cream inside these booties was evenly dispersed (yay!) and my skin drank up the moisturizing goodness in the 20 minutes I had on the foot mask. The only "cons" with these masks are minor - the pattern is always a fun one but this year's design isn't my favorite and it would be nice if they had a special scent for the holiday versions of these masks. It's all good though, as it is truly the results that count, and they were wonderful here! Whenever I see these results, I'm reminded that I need to be consistent with my use of these foot masks. So far, I've used them monthly. Fingers crossed that holds true and I reach for another one of these masks next month.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Holiday Coconut Foot Mask is currently out of stock online (hopefully to be restocked) but there should be some still available at your local store.

Wow!! @itsfi that's incredible for your feet!!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

It did an amazing job @lmaster!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ 2023 Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi These are probably my favorite type of foot mask SC produces. I hope they never get rid of this one, the discontinued Lavender was a great close second.
