Beauty 411: The Best Sheet Masks
Okay, real talk. I never get to a spa. And that is not a complaint. I'm of the mindset that if I cannot relax at all - why spend the money? Heck, I can barely get through a no-chip manicure without tapping my toes and telling my manicurist to skip the hand massage complete with warm towel aromatherapy. Yeah, I'm that girl.
The solution you ask? Quick, inexpensive spa therapy at home. All you need is $15. I swear. I've gone through the heavy lifting of trying out many many sheet masks so today - I'm sharing only the ones I truly adore and use on the regular. And by the regular, I am referring to once a week in which my girls and I sit with anticipation as we smell, unwrap and test the mask on my face awaiting the dewy results. Cheap entertainment, I tell ya.
Promise I wouldn't waste your time and P/S - there are amazing deals on Amazon where you can 15 masks at a time. Such a deal. Happy shopping! xo
The thing about skin is that it changes all the time. It changes with age. It changes with the seasons. It changes with stress. And while yes, I receive quite a bit of product to review, I hope you know by now that I only write about people, places, things that I truly love.
I will wholeheartedly admit that I am lover of all beauty products. It really doesn’t matter what kind or from where. I will shop at a drugstore as much as I will shop online or at a high end department store. The fact is, I LOVE beauty.
I’ll tell ya something. Nothing is more telling of your age than your eyesight. And fatigue. As someone who stares at a variety of screens day in and day out for a living…I can feel the effect on my eyes every.single.day. Turning 40 might have something to do with it as well.
You guys now I love a good beauty bargain and unbeknownst to me, Macy’s has recently launch a new subscription box service called the Beauty Box! For just $15 a month, recipients receive a chic pouch, 5 deluxe samples + 1 bonus sample and $5 off their next beauty purchase. This is truly the perfect solution to testing the waters on a brand you’re not too sure about which happens all the time to me!
I don't fall for beauty trends all that often. Perhaps it's my age but I know what I like. Fashion trends...yes, guilty as charged. Typically you will find me in a neutral lip or a bold lip. No in between but always matte. Lipgloss? Not so much, I kind of exhausted that in my late 20's but a strong lip...always!
What's new pussy cat? So MUCH! May is by far the busiest month for me personally and professionally. You could say I am savoring the quiet of April 30th because I know all hell is about to break loose. With that said, you know I am nothing if I am not a multitasking momma on the go which is why I want to introduce to you the newest lifesaver to my beauty collection. Meet Beauty by POPSUGAR!
A lack of lipstick is a lackluster day for this girl. Every once in awhile I will sport a nude but very very rarely. I can tell you when I do, it's always Urban Decay. It's quite literally my #1 favorite cosmetic brand in the drawer and has remained so for several years. And this hinges on one thing alone - lasting power.
When I look at a 60-minute increment, a 30-minute increment, hand to God, I often think how many things can I accomplish in that time frame? It sounds a little insane but as a busy, working mom - efficiency is everything. But efficiency does not mean you have to sacrifice fun. Making the ordinary tasks in life a fun activity is my role as a mother. Enter bath time!
There's been a wonderful re-emergence in the beauty world and it's the return of rose. Rose scents, rose ingredients, rose saturation. It's a thing of beauty, quite literally, that I will never tire of. You see, the intoxicating scent of a rose is truly my favorite scent of all. Never too strong or a skin irritant, it's hard for me to walk away from rose products at just about any store front.
I never used any sort of toner until my mid-30's. Quite frankly, it seemed like a lot of work to add an extra step into my skincare routine. How's that for laziness? Don't answer.
