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.

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!
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!

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.

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.

As a face mask, hair mask lover, I have an at-home spa day AT LEAST once a week and this months beauty box came right on time.

This box includes:

Lumene LAHDE Aerating Gel Mask
Innovative airy water-gel formula instantly replenishes skin’s moisture to promote a healthy, glowing complexion. It does an amazing job at hydrating your face and getting it back to how it should be. It feels nice and cool to the touch. After use, my skin looks a little more plump and truly feels hydrated (quenched like the name of this box).

TRESemme Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask Sachet
Keratin and Marula oil form a powerful 5-in-1 system that fights frizz, detangles knots, enhances shine, adds softness and tames flyaways for gorgeously smooth locks. I loved this mask smells amazing, and left my hair feeling soft and frizz free. I repurchased this mask immediately. I highly recommend to everyone who has dry, curly and color treated hair. 

Acure Brilliantly Brightening Biocellulose Gel Mask
Unique biocellulose fiber evenly distributes the antioxidant powers of vitamin C, kale and cucumber for refreshed and soothed skin. It was nice to see a mask free of parabens, sulfate, phthalate, mineral oil, petrolatum, silicone, & cruelty-free. This gel mask also is 100% vegan which was very nice to see.
Miss Spa Energize Facial Sheet Mask
Sodium hyaluronate’s restorative abilities help boost skin’s moisture levels and protect against environmental stressors. I’ve used several Miss Spa face masks before and I’ve loved them I look forward to trying this energize sheet mask.

Masque Bar Rose Gold Peel Off Mask
Enriched with natural fruit extracts that aid in purifying and soothing to brighten and soften skin. I loved using this face mask not only do you get a nice rose gold look on your face but upon peeling it off it leaves your face feeling smooth. 

 

My overall thoughts on this facial mask beauty box is that I loved it. This box has a great selection of new face masks which I will be purchasing.  I highly recommend this beauty box not only is it affordable but you also get full-size face masks and a hair mask to try.

As always I wish you all the best! If you do happen to try some products let me know which ones you enjoyed the most 🙂

Target’s Fall Beauty Box (September beauty box)

This month Target came out with two beauty boxes the Fall beauty box and a face mask beauty box. Today I will be reviewing the Fall Beauty box for the month of September.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Primer Base

My thoughts/ reviews

Weleda Wild Rose Body Wash- Wonderful scent. Great for a pampering shower or just to freshen up. A little goes a long way if you make it foamy with the loofas. Love how fresh you feel afterward.

Olay Facial Cleansing Infusion, Crushed Ginger and Citrus- Wonderfully refreshing and leaves face feeling clean. I’ve used this product daily. I will purchase again.

Garnier Rose Mist Spray- I really like how refreshing it is in when you first spray it. It has a sweet scent and it feels light and airy. It’s also a huge plus that it’s vegan.

NIVEA Smooth Daily Moisture Body Lotion- It does feel a little bit thick consistency however once it fully absorbs to the skin it feels nice and soft to touch.

Schmidt’s Naturals Charcoal Magnesium Deodorant- I love their deodorants I’ve tried the vanilla one and look forward to using the charcoal magnesium one as well.

OGX Coconut Miracle Oil Dry Shampoo- Smells wonderful and also doesn’t leave your hair looking like you put something on it. Easy to manage after use as well.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Primer Base- This product is amazing and a must have! I already have naturally long lashes, and once I apply my L’Oreal Primer my lashes instantly get that extra volume they need. You can wear it anywhere and it will last through the day and into the night with no smudges. The only thing I would change, but will also live with is how hard it can be to completely remove.

I loved this box had great new products of which I will be purchasing.  I highly recommend this beauty box not only is it affordable but you do get great products and decent sizes to try out.

As always I wish you all the best! If you do happen to try some products let me know which ones you enjoyed the most 🙂

Sephora Collection Rouge Cream in the red

 

Sephora Collection Rouge Cream in the red cream lipstick – I am not much of a lipstick person, but this lipstick really did go on nice and smooth does have that creamy texture to it. Love the classic red shade as well.

IMG_5349 

Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss in SPL- I like the color and have used Urban Decay eye products but never lip products. SPL shade is a candy pink sheer sparkle color with a minty flavor. This lip gloss has a nice shine to it but does not have that stickiness feel. The shimmer and sparkle are nice too.

 

IMG_5346
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo & Conditioner

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Mask- This is a new product from Philosophy which I found to be interesting. “It’s described as a multi-action face mask that banishes blackheads while it smooths.” It comes out as a white clay mask which applies on thick which is great you don’t have to use too much product. It lathers into a nice exfoliant which is great.

Peter Thomas Roth Skin to die for no-filter mattifying Primer & Complexion Perfector- This is a weightless primer that blurs out imperfections while also reducing the appearance of pores, and fine lines. It is sheer which is great it will not affect your makeup but enhance and last longer.

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial – Is described to be an at home professional – grade facial that sweeps away dead skin cells without irritation.  It does not contain any Parabens, Phthalates, and Sulfates. Is a supporter of IEF (international Elephant Foundation) cruelty-free. Vegan and gluten-free 🙂 Many reviews claim it works very well leaving skin glowing and feeling smooth I will do an update after I try this product. This product is on the pricier end ($80.00 for 1.69oz) so I was impressed to see a nice sample size to try out without the commitment of purchasing.
