Mask Monday

 

Hello all 🙂 welcome back to another Mask Monday.

For my hair, I am using a deep repair masque by Macadamia. My hair is in desperate need of a deep conditioner and some repair. I recently went to the hair salon and the hairstylist mentioned my hair is on the more dryer side. She did do a minimum trim and recommended I look for more deep repair types of hair masks. And instead of doing them once a week to do it twice a week.

Macadamia masque smells amazing and has benefits which include providing deep nourishment and ultra-conditioning hair restoration, does not weigh your hair down. I left my masque for 10 minutes before rinsing it out with lukewarm water as mentioned in the packet.

For my face, I went with a blueberry and yogurt face mask- soothing cream facial mask which moisturizes and hydrates skin. This mask smells just like blueberries and has antioxidants which help your face in looking youthful and healthy.  I loved how easy it was put on my face.

I did get some recipes of healthier natural alternatives for hair and face masks in which I will be using starting next week (I have to pick some ingredients up). So, look out for my DIY natural face mask Mondays and how much I like them vs the ones I have purchased.

This concludes my face mask Monday, as always, I thank you all for stopping by.

 

Until next time,

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!

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 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.

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.
