Mask Monday

Hello all, welcome back to another Mask Mondays. Today’s mask I wanted to try a DIY face mask that targets pores. Although I do not have large pores, I do notice some of them, especially around my nose and chin area.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • A splash/ squeeze of lemon juice (you can also use lime juice)

Egg whites and lemon have astringent properties that will tighten the skin and make enlarged pores shrink. The honey is an important ingredient in this recipe because it will boost your skin with moisture which is highly needed in these cold/ fall days.  My thoughts after trying this face mask were that I loved it 🙂 it truly does work my pores were pretty much non-existent and I did feel my skin a little tighter and brighter. Highly recommend this recipe.

 

For my hair, I decided to give my hair some extra tender loving care and go with a DIY hair mask which is great for my fellow curly hair ladies & gents.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of honey

Combine all the ingredients and blend them. It’s important to apply this mask in small sections to clean, damp hair. Cover your hair with a shower cap to seal the heat for 30-60 minutes then shampoo and condition your hair as usual.  I absolutely love this hair mask it made my hair feel a lot more hydrated my curls were frizz-free and I did not feel any greasy residue afterward. I highly recommend you all giving it a try and use every few weeks.

For my lips, I have been using a lip balm from Dr. Bronner’s organic peppermint. This leaves my lips feeling soft and hydrated.

This concludes my Mask Monday; I wish you all a great week. 🙂 As always, I thank you for stopping by.

Until next time! Have a great day

Mask Monday

Hello, all 🙂 welcome back to another Mask Monday. It’s officially Fall 🙂 chilly, sweater weather one of my favorite seasons. I will miss summer being able to enjoy the outdoors and exploring with my son yet I am excited about all the new memories we will create.

This week’s Mask Monday I have decided to give yet another DIY all-natural hair mask a try. This one if for Brittle hair. I don’t know if its postpartum hair or if it’s just damaged by the sun hair that I have. The mask is a simple one just like the previous ones I have tried with two ingredients Milk and Honey.

Milk and honey hair mask                                                                                                                  2 tablespoons of honey mixed with ½ cup of room temperature milk. Some helpful tips are to make sure your two ingredients are thoroughly mixed before putting it all over your hair. You are going to evenly pour it into your hair and allow it to sit for an hour. Once this mask is done you can wash and condition with the shampoo or conditioner of your choice.

For my face, I wanted to try another DIY natural face mask as well. I have been wanting to try masks that have ingredients in which were in my kitchen and am able to do myself. (I am starting to gravitate towards a healthier/ more natural route.)

Honey Citrus Mask

Combine three tablespoons of orange juice with a quarter cup of honey. Rub the mixture lightly over your face and then leave it on for 15 minutes. Once the 15 minutes up rinse your face with lukewarm water. Moisturize shortly after. This honey citrus mask is perfect for giving your skin a brighter, glowy skin.

I loved this natural face mask it smelled amazing and did give my skin a natural healthier glow.

This concludes this week’s Mask Monday. As always, I thank you for stopping by today. If you have a face mask or hair mask suggestion whether DIY or store brands please leave them below in the comment section.

Until next time have a great day!

Mask Monday

Welcome back to another Mask Monday 🙂 it’s officially starting to feel like Fall over here. Although I am missing summer, I am glad for Fall weather. However, what I wasn’t expecting is to see how much damage my hair has suffered in the summer months even with weekly hair masks.

 

For my hair, I decided to do a DIY hair mask for damaged hair: Olive oil and avocado hair mask. Olive oil is full of omega-3 fatty acids and it’s going to play an important role in my hair growth, shine and strengthening my hair. Avocado provides proteins and healthy fats which will promote overall healthy moisture to my damaged dry hair as well.

 

 

Ingredients are as follow:

  1. 1 ripe mashed avocado
  2. 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  3. *bonus add 2 tablespoons of honey for extra hydration*

 

After mixing all of these ingredients I placed it on my head with a shower cap for 45 minutes followed by washing with cool water.

For my face, I decided to try Soo AE purifying black charcoal mask (hydration + moisture sheet mask.)  Love the ingredients in this face mask it was different to try out and did leave my skin feeling moisturized and soft.

For my lips, I decided to try another DIY recipe: 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of raw sugar. It’s said to help reduce lip lines. I loved how supple and smooth my lips looked after trying. Not to mention how tasty.

For my eyes, I decided to do another DIY recipe: cucumber mint eye mask. The key is to place cucumber into a blender with mint and strain out the liquid place it on cotton pads and place them in your eye for 15-20 minutes. I loved this eye mask my eyes felt cool from the cucumber and mint.

This concludes this week’s Mask Monday.  I thank you for stopping by today and wish you all a great week.

 

Until next time!

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 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.
