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 ripe mashed avocado
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- *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!
Welcome back to another Mask Monday!
This Monday’s masks are all about purifying and clarifying I also wanted to do a couple of DIY masks that I have been seeing around lately.
Face mask used: avocado and oatmeal purifying clay face mask. I love the smell of it nice and sweet. Love the mint green color I used it on my face, and going down my neck and chest area. After drying I washed it off and felt my skin tighter, smoother, softer and cleaner. Highly recommend this face mask which you could purchase at a local CVS.
For my hair mask I used a DIY hair mask:
Apple cider vinegar, lemon, avocado, and an egg white. After mixing all four items I let it sit on my hair for 40 minutes. Washing it off with cold water left my hair feeling clean and soft at the same time.
For my lips I used another DIY mask:
One little packet of brown sugar, 10 drops of lemon 1 teaspoon of honey. I exfoliated my lips. And used coconut oil afterward as a balm
For my eyes, I used two cucumber slices just to help depuff them.
This concludes this week’s Mask Monday. I hope you all have a wonderful week. May you find a day this week to relax, practice self-care. It’s important to our well being.
As always thank you for stopping by. Wishing you all the best.
Until next time!
Hello, all welcome back to another blog 🙂 Mask Monday.
This past weekend has been a great humid weekend Jlots of humidity, heat, and rain. My hair has been frizzy, I did have a burnt scalp which has been really rough lately. My face has been doing really well as far as no breakouts, but it has been on the dry side. This week my goal was to add moisture into my face.
For my hair, I decided to try a new product YES to Tea tree scalp relief- Soothing hair clay mask. I love this product. This is the only thing I tried that instantly fix my dryness and itchiness of my head due to being sunburnt. It also smoothed my hair and helped out with having my hair frizzy. Love the smell and a pretty green color.
For my face I decided to try JiinJU beauty 5 step travel kit- I came across this at a local CVS pharmacy. I found this kit to be perfect to try. Steps start with a cleansing oil (1), foaming face wash(2), a toner (3) and then you do the actual face mask for step four which was an avocado sheet mask (super moisture just as described in the mask.) after applying the sheet mask a hydrating cream is my fifth and final step. This Korean beauty product was by far a great experience a mini skincare routine which truly left my skin feeling fresh and moisturized.
For my lips, I used elf- lip exfoliating lip balm in the mint flavor. It definitely removed all the dead skin I had in my lips but also hydrated them as well.
My eyes were on the puffier side this Monday so to try and help treat it I decided to go with cucumber slices and place them in my eye area for 20 minutes. I did show improvement.
This sums up this week’s mask Monday. I hope you all enjoyed it and perhaps found something worth trying. As always, I thank you for stopping by today.
Have a great day until next time
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.
