Mask Mondays: Face, Lip, Hair Masks

 

Hello to all 🙂 welcome back to another blog post. I hope you all had an amazing weekend. We finally got some warm weather this weekend and took complete advantage of it.

For today’s Mask Monday I knew I wanted to try a face mask that had some sort of an exfoliant in its ingredient since I did use make up once this past weekend and since it’s always good to remove dead skin in order to promote healthy and fresh looking skin.

For my hair, I was in serious need of deep conditioning it and trying to find a way to tame my frizzy curls and help the new postpartum hair growth coming back. ( Yes, after you have your baby you do lose hair 🙂 you’re welcome in case no one ever told you.) 

For the lips, I also wanted to do an exfoliating  type of balm this week

Since I was going to use a scrub mask I decided to do a sleeping mask

Masks I used this week are: 

Charcoal and black sugar dual-action scrub facial mask (purchased at CVS)

Sauce beauty: Deep moisture mask guacamole whip avocado, argan oil, and monoi oil (purchased at Sally’s beauty)

Revlon Exfoliating balm- Sugar Mint (purchased at Target)

Watermelon Glow: Sleeping Mask (purchased at Sephora)

My thoughts on the products after trying them:

Charcoal and black sugar: love this face mask it did feel warm to the touch as I scrubbed my face. After use, my face did feel soft and smooth.

Sauce beauty deep moisture mask: It truly was a hair mask I noticed a change in just one try and although it says to use 2-3 times a week you will notice a significant change after using it once. My curls felt soft and I did notice a drastic change with the frizz.

Revlon Kiss: I have been loving it this balm leaves my lips feeling smooth and hydrating they do have sugar which exfoliates yet melts with the balm. There’s no need to wipe off and the balm lasts for a few hours.

Watermelon Glow: It’s a pretty cool texture too bouncy gel- cream. Applies smoothly and absorbs quickly to the skin. Left my skin feeling very soft.

 

That’s all for this week’s Mask Monday. Thank you for stopping by. 🙂

 

As always I wish you all a great week!

Mask Monday

Hello to all 🙂 welcome back to another blog. Today I decided to start a new fun and cool series in my blog (social media accounts) called Mask Monday. As a first time mom I haven’t been the best when it comes to self-love/ self-care which I was good at prior to having my baby. In order to hold myself accountable I decided to document and post it on my blog as a diary way to look back and see what types of brands I’ve tried and which one works for what type of skin problem or area, which hair mask works best on my curls and which ones didn’t.

 

Now on to the fun part this week’s Mask Monday.

Eyes: For the eyes, I decided to go and try Clean & Clear’s new night relaxing jelly eye sheet mask with seaweed extract- Soothes and replenishes skin.

Face: Masque Bar Grey Clay peel off mask- Cleanse. Soothe. Purify. This peel-off clay mask helps to deep cleanse, moisturize and soothe skin.

Sally’s box: Friendly Berry Berry Lip Patch- Hydrates lips

My final thoughts:

For the eye mask, I placed it into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before using it. It felt amazing on the skin and I did enjoy it. My eyes did feel hydrated and less puffy. I fell in love and will be repurchasing for nights in which baby sleeps and I get to indulge in a movie and some pampering.

For the face mask, I did feel my skin was a lot smoother. I enjoy using the peel off method and this clay mask did not dry out my skin like some clay masks do. I do recommend this face mask by Masque bar and will be repurchasing.

Lip patch had a horrible taste to it I accidentally licked my lips and it was just bad. My lips did feel smooth. I will not be repurchasing this particular lip patch because of its taste.

That was all the masks I used this Monday thank you for stopping by. If you have any masks whether it’s a face mask, hair mask or lip mask please let me know I am always looking for recommendations.

 

As always, I thank you for coming and wish you all a great one.

An open letter to my mama on Mother’s Day

IMG_8346

Hi 🙂 welcome back to another blog. Today I wanted to take my very first Mother’s Day and celebrate and honor my own Mama. The lovely amazing woman who brought me into this world.

 

Mama,

I hope you know just how much I love you and appreciate you. It wasn’t until I held my little guy for the first time did, I realize “wow that overwhelming love and urge to protect him from everything must be the same thing my mom has felt and successfully has done all my life.”  Becoming a mother has been one of the most beautiful things I could have experienced but also one of the hardest jobs of all, yet you make it look so easy. You have placed yourself last so many times to ensure all of us were well taken care of that you lost yourself as a woman. Yet when it was time to back to find her you did just that for the better of our family. You finished your degree became the best nurse and on your way you were. Growing up I always remembered just how blessed and happy we were to have you for a mother you made us feel loved and everything we could have wanted was given -now I won’t say we were spoiled rotten children yet in a sense we were given so much and the love was always there. What we didn’t see was just how difficult and expensive it was at times and the hardships you went through in order to make things happen for us. Being the eldest I knew you worked two jobs and how it was long hours. I never knew if you were in pain, tired or unhappy because you never mentioned it, you never complained. Now as a mother I see just how hard you and dad worked together to make sure we were good. I now see just how hard it was for you too at times, the loneliness of motherhood and how although unintentional your children will make you cry sometimes. I am sorry for all the times I made you cry as a teen and even as an adult. I now see that in the end, all you have ever wanted is the same exact thing I want for my son. To be happy and avoid hurt, pain, and troubles not to learn life the hard way but through other people’s experiences and lessons learned.

Thank you for being our families rock for being the most amazing mom a girl could ask for. Thank you for being the best Grandma to my little boy and for loving him as if he were another child of your own. I love you to the moon and back!

 

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there, the ones who do it all for their children and families. May you enjoy your day and remember just how important you are in their lives. To those mommies to have lost their babies Happy Mother’s day to you, may you remember you too are a mommy to your angel in heaven.

Have a great day & as always thank you for stopping by.

Walmart Beauty Box Winter

 

IMG_7884

Hello and welcome back to another post. Today I am going to be reviewing Walmart’s Beauty box for the Winter Season. Walmart has recently come out with a beauty box one for each season. This fun beauty box is actually FREE, and all of the products are sold in Walmart. You do only pay $5.00 in shipping. Similar to Target’s beauty box the goal is to introduce new products that are either new or a brand you’ve never heard of.

Contents in the Winter Box are:

  • Makeup bag
  • Soo’AE Unicorn Glow Hologram Mask
  • Pantene Intense Rescue Shots
  • Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer
  • Olay Daily Facials Daily Hydrating Clean Dry Cloth
  • Biore Charcoal Cleansing Micellar Water

 

These are all great brands, all of them except for one Soo’AE are brands in which I have used in the past making it great to try their new lines. I HIGHLY recommend this Walmart box to anyone who is looking to treat themselves but also to test out products without the commitment of having to purchase a full-size product. It’s also a great way to know which products work best for you.

 

As always, I thank you for taking the time and stopping by.

Have a great day and until next time.
