Face Mask Friday

Face Mask Friday

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all doing well. As Christmas inches closer (Take a minute to lose it because I am) I’ve been really going to work making sure my skin looks somewhat decent. If your family is anything like mine (mainly my dear mother ft. in this blog) then you’ll be in roughly a good 1000 photos.

So, I decided to pick out a face mask from my arsenal, just a little something to “relax”. Today’s choice was by a company called The Original Korean Face Mask, The Pearl Sculpting Mask. This promised to brighten and give my skin an instant renewal! I bought it at Boscovs on a whim for a whopping $2.00.

Well… FAIL!

It comes in a powder form inside a plastic cup with a little spatula. You put water up to the line, mix then apply wait the standard 15 to 20 minutes and rinse…… (I’m sitting here typing this, laughing) My guess is that I mixed it for too long? Because it started to harden in the container! I run to the mirror and begin to slap it on my face. Honestly everyone in my house thinks I’ve lost it, this just adds to the proof.

Ah… now I had a chunky unspreadable goop on my face. The mask finally dries and after rinsing it off there was not much of a difference. My skin felt soft and it was good fun but I’m not going to repurchase another one.

If you do purchase this face mask just be aware that you need to apply it fast and there is a strong perfume smell.

Question of the day? Is it appropriate to re-gift something?

My Ultimate Face Mask!

My Ultimate Face Mask!

Hello everyone… I hope all is well of course. You all are probably wondering where in the world I’ve been! Well, I have decided to go back to college. This whole summer has been dedicated to getting ready for that, and just having fun. I don’t like the fact that my blog took a back seat for awhile, but unfortunately it has.

Enough with the updates, I have an exciting experience to share with everyone! A little back story, at the beginning of middle school I started getting migraines. (They are a family trait I wish I never got) One day my mom took me to The Body Shop and we bought a cooling face mask just to try…. It worked wonders! Fast forward twelve years (Yes twelve!), my beloved mask has started to lose its magic. A lot of the blue gel inside has dissipated. IMG_3601

Well, one night I was browsing The Body Shop website and what did I find?!? The same mask in PINK! (My favorite color btw) I could have cried, twelve years later and I find a new one? Crazy! But wait its only $4.80? With FREE SHIPPING? This must be a joke… NOPE!

This mask is a life saver, it helps with a number of things:
-Puffy eyes
-Migraines/Headaches
-Hot days to cool off

It stays pretty cool on its own but you can place it in the freezer for a bit to get cold. It has a strap with velcro. I’m just in love with this mask honestly, there are so many good things I could say about it. I mean you have to love something to buy it twice.

Face Injection Sheet Mask?

Face Injection Sheet Mask?

Hello everyone, I hope all is well. A couple blogs back I posted a Forever21 Haul. In this haul I showed a crazy looking sheet mask that included a syringe (yes, a syringe.) I was itching to try it and after a terrible makeup wipes mishap, I decided it was time! (Btw, DO NOT buy makeup wipes just because they are on sale!)

The Oozoo Mask is suppose to help hydrate your skin. It retails for around the five dollar mark. The sheet mask itself is made from a 100% cotton. IMG_3378

The mask was fairly easy to assemble….. yeah I know, but yes we are still talking about a SHEET MASK! IMG_3379

You take out the syringe press the top button down, and push all the product into the mask package. Shake it up! Then, you take the mask out and apply it to the face for 15-20 minutes. (Or 30-45 minutes…) IMG_3376

Final Thoughts: I was so impressed with this mask! I will buy more, many more! My skin felt cool and so much better after the makeup wipes. The mask is very hydrating, and it helps your face stay hydrated! Plus, it was super fun to do!

Perfectly Posh Haul and Review!

Perfectly Posh Haul and Review!

Hello everyone! I hope all is well as usual. Today, is a super exciting haul/review from a company called Perfectly Posh.

A little while ago I got in contact with one of their consultants and we decided to do a collaboration! Abby was sweet enough to send me a package with products and samples to try out. I’ve tried out each product a few times to get an accurate opinion.

Before I go into detail for each one I want to talk about the company itself. All of the containers are made from recycled material, they use naturally based products as well as being cruelty free and every thing is made in the USA.

First product is the Big Fat Yummy Hand Creme in Boho Soul- (4 out of 5) $9.00
Smell- Spiced fruits, amber and Oud wood.
The hand creme is amazing it makes your hands super soft and it smells so good. Very spicy, but not overwhelming. It doesn’t leave the hand greasy or sticky which is a plus considering it is so hydrating. IMG_3136

Next product is the Lemon Wedge Caffinated Lip Balm- (5/5) $5.00
Smell- Lemon (Obviously)
Okay, let me tell you about this lip balm! I swear by it now. It has the tingly feeling, and my lips are so smooth. I don’t have the need to keep reapplying it like most lip balms. It smells so nice, and the packaging looks like a vintage cleaner. And to top it off it’s only five dollars! IMG_3137

Next product she sent me was the Crackle Spackle Detoxifying Face Mask- (5/5) $19.00
Smell- Mint and Charcoal
It smells so good! The mask itself tingles and feels so cooling. I usally can’t use new products with out breaking out the first time but this soothed my skin and my black heads were noticeabley smaller and cleaned out! I love this mask and will definitely be repurchasing it!IMG_3135

Last product is a tool! Its a face mask silicone brush. I give it a 5/5 because its shaped so perfect! It applies the mask evenly without patches.

Each product has amazing packaging… super fun and colorful.

I wanna give a huge shout out to Abby Smith for gifting me these products! I’m going to link all her information below if you want to try any of these out or anything else she sells.

Skin Care Obsessed

Skin Care Obsessed

Hey everyone, I hope you guys are doing well! So, like the title says I’ve been skin care obsessed… well face mask obsessed. A little back story (which I have explained before) I’ve suffered from serious acne for a long time and my skin has FINALLY (at 23) started to give me a break!

Today, Im going to share my favorite DIY face mask and a little review on the E.L.F. Pore refining brush and mask tool!  mask1maks3

I’m a detox freak! Anything with clay I’m hooked so, when I saw one of my favorite youtubers use the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay I freaked out! I knew I had to try it. So, I used one tbs of the clay powder and 2 tbs of distilled water. And the skin game was changed forever! It helps with raw break outs as well as helping keep away new skin impurities.

P.S. Please make sure you have distilled water! I use filtered warm water. Trust me you do not need more junk on your skin. mask2

Now, onto the new E.L.F. brush- I’m a use your hands for everything type of girl. Thats not always good because your hands have a lot of bacteria on them. The top of the brush is a tool to apply a mask. It’s taking a little bit to get used to applying small amounts slowly with the tool and not my fingers. I do enjoy the fact that it’s more cleanly for my face. Also, the bottom is a pore refining brush and I love it! It really does get into my pores and cleans out all the gunk. And hey for $5 bucks I think it’s totally worth it! maks5

Spa Days With My Mama

Spa Days With My Mama

Hey everyone, I hope you’re all doing well! Today is a super exciting blog post because I will be joined by my mother Jen.

A little back story; my mom is definitely the one who started my beauty craze. I remember laying in her lap as she applied a very “bold” smokey eye, with EYELINER, after I would beg her! She used an Almay trio palette for green eyes. I was probably around 12 years old (2006-ish). The first time I walked out and my dad saw me he practically died! I remember him telling my mom that I was not allowed to leave the house… then my mother said “Roland she would never leave the house with that much makeup”. Little did they know that I would leave the house years later with a pound of it on my face! spa2

Recently I purchased a jar of the Dr. Brandt Magnetight Age Defying Magnetic Mask. I decided that I would use it on my mom, she deserves a little TLC every once in awhile. I would say her skin has an oily t-zone and is very dry around the edges. I’M NOT SAYING HER SKIN IS AGING…. So anyways, I asked her a few questions while she was wearing the mask and after! spa1

First question: How do you like the application? “Its super easy, anyone could do it.” -Mama

How does the mask feel on your skin? “It feels like there is nothing on my face. It’s smooth!”-Mama

How does it smell? “It smells like the tea we brew… not like the Wawa tea but the good kind. Like green tea.”-Mama

How does it feel to remove the mask with a magnet? “Really cool! It feels like light tickles.”-Mama

How does your skin feel afterwards? “Like fake skin.. You know what I mean?”- Mama “Yeah mom I know what you mean.” -Me

How does your skin look afterwards? “The pores are cleaned out! Look at my nose Vic.” -Mama (Presses nose in my face) “Yeah looks good.”-Me

She gives it a 9/10. Mom was so impressed by the mask, she’s still most likely admiring herself.

The mask itself is $24.00 for a travel size. It has about three applications.

Question of the day?- Does anyone have any good mask recommendations? For Mom or me? Let me know!
