Target Beauty Box (Jet-Set-Go)

Hello to all 🙂 welcome back to another blog post. Today I will be doing another review this time on Target Beauty’s June 2019 box.  I was very excited seeing how nice the box was decorated this month for their Pride month. So without any further ramble let’s get into this box. This month’s theme is called Jet-Set-Go.  Cost as always is: $7.00 free shipping

This box includes:                                            

TRESemmé Between Washes Volumizing Dry Shampoo                                                            

Pixi T-Zone Peel Off Mask                            CND Vinylux Mini Duo Pack    

Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots Ampoules Hair Treatment                                        

Herbal Essences Bio-Renew Revitalize Cucumber & Green Tea Dry Shampoo

 

*My immediate thoughts were confused why would they put TWO different types of dry shampoo. I have to be completely honest it not only threw me off but disappointed me in a way. When I look back at June 2018 Beauty box, I am even more disappointed because I was introduced to the brand Love, Planet and beauty shampoo and conditioner so I was kind of hoping for a better variety this Summer box. *

 

My thoughts:

TRESemmé Between Washes Volumizing Dry Shampoo- I don’t have much an opinion on this product since I do not use dry shampoo therefore, I will be giving it to a friend who does. (Luckily for her she doesn’t even purchase dry shampoo anymore 🙂 since Target beauty always places them in boxes, I give them to her.)

Pixi T-Zone Peel Off Mask- This mask was very interesting to try since the moment I read T-Zone, with it being known for being one of the oiliest parts of the face I was intrigued to try. * Please note I do not face an oily face; it did feel nice to have on and I noticed a slight difference so to those who may have oily skin this could possibly work for you. *

CND Vinylux Mini Duo Pack- Although the color is nice, I would have expected pop of color for summer. I have yet to fully try it on I did do a swatch it wears nice and CND is a really nice quality brand nail polish you find in nail salons.

Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots Ampoules Hair Treatment-If you follow my Mask Monday blog post series, you’d know I recently tried two of Pantene Pro-V intense hair masks this one being one of them. I LOVE IT and was excited to have an extra! After dying my hair this past week, my hair will be needing more moisture and intense care.  

Herbal Essences Bio-Renew Revitalize Cucumber & Green Tea Dry Shampoo-Since I don’t use dry shampoo my friend will have both, it did smell great though!

So overall this month’s beauty box only had 1 item in which was new to me (Pixi T-Zone Peel Off Mask) and a monthly favorite (Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots Ampoules Hair Treatment) there were two dry shampoos which I wasn’t interested in and a nail polish set that didn’t remind me of summer. I wasn’t as pleased with this box I hope next month is better. I did see online many people were unhappy as well.

 

As always, I thank you all for stopping by. Until next time.

Have a great day!

Mask Monday,​ June 17th,2019

Hello to all:) and welcome back to another Mask MondayI hope you all had a wonderful weekend enjoying the weather. This past week I finally managed to do my dye my hair just in time for upcoming birthdays and summer.

This week for my face I wanted to continue with hydration but also wanted to lightly remove impurities as well. I have been using makeup here and there and it’s been hot and humid sweat also happens and I want to prevent clogged pores. So, for this week I tried two different masks :).

For my hair this week I am still battling taming frizz since there has been a lot of humidity still (lots of rain in New York this past week). And now that my hair is color treated again some dryness has happened. I have decided to continue moisturizing mask but also dealing with color treated hair.

For my lips, I wanted to try a new hydrating and moisturizing lip mask.

Masks I used this Monday:                                                                                                        

 Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Ultimate Moisture Protein Complex Intensely hydrating mask.

Pixi T-Zone Peel Off Mask

WATERMELON Energizing Marshmallow Peel off

Oh K! Cherry Gel Lip mask

My final thoughts:

Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Ultimate Moisture Protein Complex Intensely Hydrating Masque- I love this mask it’s always been a favorite of mine and goes well when I dye my hair and need that extra moisture and hydration. As we all know using a hair developer for dying hair is a damaging process regardless if there is no ammonia, therefore, it’s important to hydrate your hair after dying it or color treating it.

 

Pixi T-Zone Peel Off Mask: This Mask is a great product to remove excess oil and dirt from your skin. It is pain-free and easy to use. The results leave your skin refreshed and glowing! I love using this I began trying it without expecting much since I thought I didn’t have a trouble area in my T-zone, yet I was wrong it removed everything. Lovely color too and smells pleasant.

WATERMELON Energizing Marshmallow Peel Off Mask- I love this product. It goes on my skin very smooth and light. It also smells good! This peel off mask came out smoothly and I didn’t break out smells great as well.

Oh K! Cherry Gel Lip mask: This lip mask was fun to try. It was very hydrating and smelled nice. I did pop it in the fridge a few minutes before using.

 

As always, I thank you for stopping by. Until next time!

 Have a great week.

Open letter to my father on Father’s Day

IMG_1655

Hello to all and welcome back to another blog post. Today is officially Father’s Day here in the United States and I have decided to dedicate today’s blog post to my father just as I did with my own mother on Mother’s Day this year.

Daddy,

I hope you know just how much I love you. Growing up you’ve always made me feel secure and confident in having you as a confidant. Being free to express myself never falling into that machoism what comes along with the Latino culture. Thank you for always being my listening ears in all aspects of the word. No matter what the situation you always heard me out and never judged me. As an adult now that’s everything for a child and to be able to have that till this day it’s priceless to me.
I thank you for being supportive. I know just how fortunate I am being able to say I grew up in a loving and caring home with both parents in a world where marriages at a high rate end in divorce. Thank you for being hands-on and making sure we knew our roots and spoke Spanish. I am sorry for the hard times I may have given you. Thank you for loving my little guy as if he were your own son.

Most importantly thank you for setting the standard high when it comes to having a man in my life. Knowing what I will, and I won’t tolerate from my fiancé due to having an amazing father like you.

I love you,  Happy Father’s Day!

Hello to all 🙂 and welcome back to another Mask Monday. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend enjoying the lovely summer-like weather. Out here in New York City, we’ve officially been in warmer weather and I must say I am loving it.

This week for my face I wanted to add more moisture into my face. Now that the weather is getting warmer, being out in the sun its important for me and helps prevent aging. My face mask of choice had to be on the hydrating side.

For my hair this week I am still battling taming frizz since there has been a lot of humidity. I have read that the best way to tame frizz is by hydrating.

For my lips, I am excited to try Laneige’s Lip Sleeping mask. It’s gotten a lot of great reviews on Sephora which intrigued me.

Masks I used this Monday:

Neutrogena Hydro Boost hydrating face mask                                                               Pantene One step nourishing mask                                                                                       Lineige Lip Sleeping Mask

My final thoughts:

Neutrogena Hydro Boost hydrating face maskI decided to go with this face mask since it claims to be hydrating and a 100% hydrogel mask. And it truly does hydrate my skin. I LOVED that it had two separate sections an upper section and lower section making it easy to apply to my face. I truly recommend this to anyone looking to hydrate their face more.

Pantene One step nourishing mask- This mask truly does hydrate my hair I love the fact that it was easy to use. Worked amazing on my frizzy curls and even helped my damaged areas. After letting it air dry my hair wasn’t as frizzy either. 

Laniege Lip Sleeping Mask- Absolutely in love with this lip product. It has become my go-to since trying it for the first time over the weekend. The scent is soft and gentle, and it is super moisturizing without being super sticky.

 As always, I thank you all for stopping by. Until next time.

 Have a great week!

Mask Monday

 

Hello to all 🙂 welcome back to another blog post. Today I am back with another exciting Mask Monday with actual tips to all the moms out there with little to no time for themselves. You are welcome in advance! To those who aren’t mom’s no worries, you can try these tips too if you find yourself with little time and in desperate need of skin care love and attention.

 So, for this, Mask Monday face mask I have a little back story. I remembered not too long ago during my bottle washing and disinfecting morning routine I played a YouTube video of a mommy blogger who had mentioned doing face masks in the shower which helped her save time but keep up with her skincare routine since she hasn’t been. I realized I have not been the best when it comes to keeping up with my skincare routine until recently, which why I even started Mask Monday on my blog to keep me going. I also thought what a genius idea similar to using hair masks yet on your face while you shower so you’re not using extra time and could do it without having to worry about rushing for the baby.

For my hair, I am still working on hydrating my curls and taming frizz it’s been raining a lot and I have noticed so much frizz.

For my lips, I am still working on exfoliating as well let’s be honest summer is right around the corner having dry and chapped lips isn’t cute. I found a recipe for a lip scrub and topped it with a lip mask afterward.

 Masks I used this Monday are:

Que Bella Professional In shower Gel Face Mask

Lip scrub (brown sugar, coconut oil, and essential oil (optional) Miss Spa Deep Patch Hydration Facial Treatments

Pantene Intense Rescue Shots Ampoule

My final thoughts:

Que Bella Professional In shower Gel Face Mask-I absolutely love this gel mask it works amazing left my face feeling soft and smooth I recommend this product to everyone. This packet was good enough for three uses. *Tip use this right before getting into the shower with a clean face and what I normally do is brush my teeth for two minutes before getting into the shower. This would be a mask  I remove towards the end of my shower use it on neck and chest*

Lip scrub (brown sugar, coconut oil and essential oil lemon (optional)- I enjoyed this recipe and left my lips feeling soft and smooth I made sure I wasn’t as rough, and it did remove all the dead skin. *Tip use a small toothbrush to exfoliate better lightly not rough will promote blood flow as well. *

Miss Spa Deep Patch Hydration Facial Treatments- I REALLY liked this lip mask it did have no flavor, but it wasn’t bad as previous masks. *Tip I placed it in the fridge to keep it cool and took it out before using gave it a cooling effect after exfoliating. *                                          

Pantene Intense Rescue Shots Ampoule- This mask truly lived up to its name “intense” it truly worked on my hair. I used it and felt it working as I was using it on my damaged frizzy hair. *Tip leave the mask on your hair as long as you can and rinse with cold water. Before getting out of the shower splash your hair with cold water to seal your hair cuticles.
