BLOGMAS DAY 3 | DIY Honey n’ Oaks Nourishing Sheet Mask

Hello Passionista, 

One of my favorite things to do to my face is using a sheet mask. I mostly use hydrating and detoxifying sheet masks at least once a week. Sheet masks are a convenient  way to treat your skin to something refreshing. All you have to do is open the package, lay the mask over your face and wait at least 15 minutes before removing it. The clean up progress is so easy, all you have to do is throw away the packaging and sheet mask when done. These masks are generally inexpensive and favorite brands to use are Miss Spa, Yes To, and Sephora Brand. 

Although sheet mask are not expensive I found a way to make them myself.  I am a DIY Belle at heart and when I realized  there were simple ways to make my own sheet masks, I couldn’t help myself. 

In this blog, I will be sharing with you step by step how to make your own sheet mask using natural face cotton compressed facial mask, purchased from Amazon

1 tablespoon of Honey

1/2 cup of Plain Oaks

Oaks contains natural anti-inflammatory properties to help treat and prevent rashes and irratated skin.  Together the 2 natural ingredients will nourish and hydrate your normal to dry skin for beautiful health skin.

Detoxifying Mask

Hello Beauty!

Last night I did another facial from my Peel Off Mask Gone Wrong blog a few weeks ago

img_7564This mask was much better than the last one I tried. Instead of a peel off, this mask is a paper mask by Yes to. I have tried a paper mask before and I think they are a great innovation to cut down the mess that can come with mixing and applying a mask. Paper mask are also convenient when it comes to traveling. I wash my daily every night with a daily facial wash and rinse it with cold water and a rag every morning, but I like to do a mask once or twice a week.

img_7636The Yes To Tomatoes detoxifying Charcoal Paper Mask is great for cleaning your pores. It is made with 96% natural ingredients with no parabens or silicones. I am really interested in this charcoal trend of beauty products. Charcoal is a natural detoxifier and impurity remover to deep clean skin.

I decided to use this mask the other day because I fell asleep with my make-up on. I normally wash my face once I get home from work, but it was just one of those days. I woke up the next morning with make-up all over my face. I didn’t do a mask right then, or I would have been late for work. So once I got home I looked through my collection of paper mask and choose this one. The charcoal helps to detox the skin and clean pores from all the product on your face.

I placed the paper on my face and started dinner. After about 20 minutes, I removed the paper mask and trashed it. My face was a little wet from the liquid on the mask so instead of washing it off, I let it air dry on my face and finished my dinner. Before bed, I used my NYX water facial mist to hydrate my face and rest well.

 

 

 

I purchased this at Wal-Mart for $2.50. They have a endcap display of 2 for $5 facial mask. I will be repurchasing this paper mask to use again.

Until Next Time,

Peel Off Mask Gone Wrong!!!

Hello Beauties !!!!

I was in Walmart doing some shopping and I came across this Facial end-cap display. 2 for $5.00 facial mask. So I picked up a few that I’m going to try and review for y’allimg_7558img_7559

This review is for the Charcoal Modeling Peel Off Mask by Masqueology. I have never tried a peel off mask before, so this is a first. This mask is supposed to help detoxify the skin while minimizing the pores. The charcoal powder is meant to takes out dirt and debris that can clog pores and make skin look dull and dry leaving the complexion clarified, refreshed, and hydrated.

img_7566img_7567According to the directions on the back of the pack, you just open the pack and add water. Then stir it using the spatula that’s included…. Okay! I did that… It didn’t quite work out easy for me. The product was very lumpy. The package has creases at the bottom so the product gets trapped there, making it hard to stir.  So I decided to empty the package in a bowl to stir it better. I was able to get it a little smoother but it was still a little lumpy. The directions state to add water but not how much. Maybe I mixed it wrong.

But I put it on my face anyways just to see how this would turn out. EPIC FAIL!!! There was this odd looking white residue. Although, it came off when I washed it off. The peel off process was like candle wax. It wasn’t a peel effect at all. My face didn’t feel any better after wiping the mask off.I will never try this product again. In fact, I need to find a really good peel mask. If you’ve ever tried this product and got different results, please comment and share your experience? If you know of a good peel mask, please share in the comments?

I know it was only $2.50 but the only good thing about this product is the spatula that was included. If you’re ever in Wal-Mart don’t get this product, not worth it.

March Empties

 

Hello Gorgeous,

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to start my weekend. So I thought I’d leave you with some product reviews.

  1. Mint Julips Lip Scrub by Lush

The label says the flavor is mint chocolate, but I only taste the mint. I’ve been using this product for a while. I usually use it on Sunday nights before bed, too make sure my lips stay soft and kissable all week. I definitely recommend this product if you experience dry chapped lips often, and I would re-purchase this product.

  1. Charity Pot by Lush

This was my first time trying this product from lush. This was one on those products I was planning on purchasing but was talked into buying by a salesperson in the store. And I must say its and convenient beauty product. It comes in this little LUSH cup, that I keep on the bathroom sink for in the mornings and during the day. I absolutely recommend this product and I plan on getting another one during my next trip to LUSH.

  1. Oatifix Fresh Face Mask by Lush

Now, this is my favorite LUSH product. It’s a facial that blended with bananas, vanilla and ground almonds with oats. This facial is good for cooling and nourishing irritated skin. And it feels sooooo good on the skin, even washing it off feels amazing. And its only $8. It lasts a minute too. So I definitely recommend this product.

  1. Mary Kay Full-Coverage Foundation (color Bronze 504)

TBH, this was my first foundation ever. I started wearing this foundation back in High School when I was dancing and doing pageants. It matches my skin perfectly- mean like all year around too. Like my skin gets lighter in the winter and browner in the summer and its hard to use the same foundation all year round. But somehow this foundation balances with my skin tone all year round. And the smallest tube takes you a long way. I have this product in a tube but I don’t think they make them in tubes anymore. But I will be getting online to order me some more Full Coverage Foundation soon. I think this is the only Mary Kay product I would recommend to other, but I use it and love it sooo much.

  1. Black Tie Candle from Bath and Body Works

Now, this is my absolute favorite candle scent. It is a seasonal candle so I try to rank up on them so I have some to burn throughout the entire year. But this year, seems like this candle was sold out at every Bath and Body Works I went to. Before the winter season was out I ended up was two of the small trail size candles. Like I burn candles everyday so, of course I burned these two out in no time. So yall know I’m ready for Winter again so I can order my favorite candle.

  1. Cantu for Kids Curling Cream

Although this product is for kids hair, I really like using it on my over night curls. Its suppose to like define and tame fuzziness. So I apply it to my hair when I re- twirl it at night for frizz-less curls in the morning. If you are natural and looking for a really good curling cream for your hair, I would suggest you try this product. It might not work for everyone but it has def. been a savor for my hair.

  1. Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-in conditioner

Okay, when I purchased this product, I just knew it was going to help grow my hair and restore my damaged curl pattern. UH- NO! It didn’t. All it did was strip my hair even more. Like I was so disappointed in the product. I WILL NOT purchase it again. Don’t get me wrong, I love Shea Moisture product, but I will not be using this particular one any longer.

  1. Rimmel London Concealer (color light/med 335)

So, I used this product for highlighting my under eye area. And it gets the job done. It’s a really cheap concealer as well. I have not re-purchased it yet because I’m trying out some other brands of light concealers, but I would definitely recommend this one as a good drug store make up product. And I will eventually go back to this product.

  1. Cover Girl Lipstick, dulce de leche 225

Not for me at all! I only bought this product because it was marked down at a drug store. I thought it was a cute color. I didn’t really think about how it would look on me. And when I got home and put it on, I was like OH! No! take that off and never put it on again!

 

Well that’s it for this month’s empties, feel free to share with me some products you have tried lately that you would recommend to a girlie girl like me. Be sure to stop back by on Wednesday for a new post …
