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!

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.

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.

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 Baby facial

 

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.

Living Proof. Perfect Hair Day Shampoo & Conditioner

 

This month’s bonus:

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo & Conditioner–  These are good for all types if hair makes your hair look healthier and in time improves your hair’s overall health. It does not contain any Parabens, Phthalates, and Sulfates. I enjoyed this bonus it’s nice to add to your bag when traveling.

My overall thoughts- Being my first box I was impressed. I got two lip products two facial products, a primer, and shampoo and conditioner samples. Also, I should add 50 Beauty insider points and an in-store learning class. I look forward to next month’s PLAY! box.

Have anyone of you tried PLAY! By Sephora box? What are your thoughts did you like the products or not? Have you tried any of the products?

 

As always, I wish you all the best!
