Double mask Sunday ✨
Was feeling a deep clean today so here I am. I've already reviewed both of these products so there's not much more to add. I'm also doing a hair treatment today so I'm feeling soooo relaxed 🙌🏻 I'll be going into the new week feeling renewed and refreshed.
Tonight's Mask 😀
☆23 Years Old Sitra Dermaseal Mask☆
☆Claims to moisturize, calm and balance skin with sea buckthorn oil, licorice extract, and hydrolyzed egg membrane.
☆The sheet has a weird texture but it is sturdy. It is soaked in an egg yolk colored essence that has an extremely odd smell.
☆Left this one for about 15 minutes as it started to dry and stuck to my skin a bit.
☆Due to the slimy essence, skin felt a bit greasy. However, My skin feels hydrated, soft & supple. My breakout and red spots are calmed. This mask was different, like other masks by this brand.
Woke up with a little friend on my chin cause of shark week approaching.. Then my boyfriend told me I’m putting too much “shit” on my face.. *slathers another layer* cause I can ... 😎
Treat: #zelensskincare mixed with @paulaschoice

Day 18 of the #skinemmies2017 : Oil. If you had told me a year & a half ago that I’d be using oils on my face, nevertheless picking a favorite, there’s zero chance I’d of believed it. I spent the better part of my life looking for the words “oil-free” in all of my skincare & cosmetic purchases. It’s been only in the last couple of years that I’ve introduced oils, and through much trial & error, I have found what works for me. That being said, I never apply to my bare face, only apply after a toner/essence followed by a hydrating serum, and even then only mixed in with a moisturizer or serum. Otherwise I experience congestion & texture, and I’ll pass on both of those thank you very much. Now onto my faves (finally I know), My two picks for this category are:
🏆#RMS Beauty Oil. Jojoba, Rosehip Seed, & Tamanu Oils combined with herbal extracts of St Johns Wort, Marigold, Horsetail, & Turmeric (to name a few) results in a beautifully hydrating, antioxidant rich formula! While I love mixing this in with my moisturizers, my favorite way to use it is 1-2 drops mixed in with my foundation! Oh and the scent. I’m addicted. It has this nutty vanilla thing going on that I adore.
🏆#Alkimi Cinco Facial Oil. I’ve only had the pleasure of using this for about a month now, but you guys. Have you taken a look at the ingredient list?? Red Raspberry Seed Oil, Cranberry Seed Oil, Watermelon Seed Oil, Black Cumin Seed Oil, Blueberry Seed Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Tamanu Oil and Vitamin E. So much amazingness in one bottle. I find less is definitely more with this, 1-2 drops is perfect for thorough absorption with no residue. Thankfully this arrived just as the temps started to drop, this has proven to be such a nourishing, hydrating & firming oil combo. 💕
Skin Republic spot and blemish mask.
I broke out SEVERELY from the glam glow GRAVITYMUD FIRMING TREATMENT mask. (the one in the purple container that turns platinum when dry.) I've never had such a bad reaction to a mask ever so I used this spot mask to try and help reduce the severity because it has tea tree oil, witch hazel and salicylic acid in it. obviously this mask won't cure my breakout, but I was hoping for it to help it a bit, and it actually did. It calmed the rash-esque breakout so it was no longer itchy, and it seemed to reduce the inflammation a bit. it really did seem to help calm it a little and the breakout is bad. seriously the worst I've had in my life. This skin republic brand claims to be cruelty free as well so that's a bonus👍🏼!
Because the boys like washing my face like I do. They actually like playing with the squishy, empty capsules.
My nighttime routine, REDEFINE regimen with kaolin mask that draws out impurities from your pores without robbing your skin of essential moisture. 💙
A SotD post to finish off my razor testing!
These are my favourite three from a larger group: #EdwinJagger DE89BL, #ParkerRazor 99R, and a #maggardrazors V3A head.
The Edwin Jagger really is a great razor in every respect. A solid shave with solid equipment.
The Maggard is a bargain of a razor, and I think it's a good buy if you're looking to add some variety to your equipment. The V3a head doesn't bend the blade as much as the EJ, so it's a bit more aggressive. Not as aggressive as a Gillette adjustable on 9, but definitely one of the closer shaves among 3-piece razors. The downside: if you're not paying attention, it's possible to skew the alignment of the blade.
Parker has made a great spin-off of the classic Gillette twist-to-open design, and I think this is my new favourite. Blade geometry is pretty flat, and it's a good compromise between aggression and protection. The TTO mechanism is good; it feels strong and doesn't squeak like some of the cheap TTO copies that are so popular. There are some rough spots on the inside of this head; not sure if that's common among Parker's models, but the outside looks great and it works well. I love the handle on the 99R, good weight and spiral grip that actually helps you grip.

Trying out some sample skin care products from @lancomeofficial Renergie Multi-Lift range:
❤ Renergie Nuit Multi-Lift, its a lifting firming and anti-wrinkle night cream
❤ Renergie Multi-Lift Reviva-Plasma, a revitalizing intense concentrate, firming and anti-wrinkle ❤ Renergie Multi-Lift, a redefining beauty lotion
My first Impressions 😊
- it has a mild fragrance, smells like a perfume (love the smell)
- the lotion is not sticky and absorbs easily by the skin, its like a liquid gel and smells nice too..
- the cream is not so heavy on the face, after wearing it all night the next morning my skins feel firmer I guess😊

In this picture is an illustration of our telomeres, DNA endings, which are biological indicators of aging. However, shortened telomeres are associated not only with aging but with increased risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, senility and premature death.
Jeunesse has already developed formulas on a completely natural base that have already proven to help rebuild telomeres.

Some beauty products I’m enjoying this Saturday:
@leadersusa Daily Wonders Pore Gone For Good- when you need something to help with breakouts, but you know your skin needs serious hydration as well. 😓
@lushcosmetics Cup O’Coffee- the best body scrub for a morning shower. ☕️
@humnutrition Raw Beauty- I’ve been feeling so sluggish lately. Give me all the delicious nutritious goodness! 😋(you can use my referral code for 20% off: 13EAEC)🍒
💫Papaya Anti-Acne Fast Fix Sheet Mask by Alba Botanica💫
Unique Ingredients/Material : ♦️Natural sustainably sourced fiber mask.
♦️Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract : Papaya is native to Mexico and Central America. It’s delicious to eat but also fabulous for your skin! It is rich in Vitamin C and also high in B vitamins, vitamin A, amino acids and enzymes like papain, a natural AHA (alpha hydroxy acid)!
♦️Melissa Officinalis (Lemon Balm) Leaf Extract : Lemon Balm is a member of the mint family! It is potent in antioxidants such as caffeic and ferulic acid which protect skin. It has been used to treat acne as it is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
♦️Salicylic acid 0.5% : this is a BHA (beta hydroxy acid) that helps treat acne by killing bacteria, exfoliating the skin and reducing the pores. It helps to prevent future clogging of pores but in order to be used as a proper treatment, it has to be used on a regular basis.
My Review :
♦️⅖ stars due to lack of any impressive effect on acne. Does leave skin hydrated and plump but mild reduction in blemishes.
♦️Packaging : cute and attractive. Good instructions and funny! Easy to tear open.
♦️Product : one size mask, fit all sides of face right to hairline and ears. Great fit. Very well saturated thin fiber mask in a gel-fluid consistency. Very mild sweet scent – pleasant. Little more fluid in packaging. Enough for neck area only. Cooling on skin. No irritation. Very mild tingling only around nose area but packaging states that some tingling is a good thing. Good adherence not slippery.
Left on for 20 minutes.
♦️After removal : honestly didn’t see much difference to my skin in terms of acne reduction. Felt hydrated and plump. Looked brighter. Continued to tingle a little bit. Blemishes looked the same. No redness.
♦️Following day : blemishes about 40% reduced, skin less oily. No other noticeable change.
However, I do like that aloe Vera leaf juice was first ingredient even before water!

Happy Saturday night lovelies! I went to a Blue Note Jazz Festival evening and had a great time. Luckily there wasn’t much singing along as my vocal chords are still on the mend from TWO WEEKS ago 🤒😕. •
Not getting political in this post, but there have been lots of posts about elephants lately so I thought let’s get that @drunkelephantskincare T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial on 🐘😇
🛀 1st Cleanse @emmahardieskincare’s Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm - removed with wet flannel - taking off the first layer of makeup and city living 🚿 Second Cleanse @omorovicza’s Cleansing Foam - rinsed with warm water. I’m trying to finish this cleanser because it’s okay but doesn’t do much for me 🤷🏼♀️ 3️⃣ Mask @drunkelephantskincare Babyfacial - 20 mins on for magic to happen ✨ 💦 Mist/Essence @omorovicza’s Queen of Hungary Mist - you definitely need to put hydration back into your skin post mask, use this (or something similar), as your starting point ➡️ @emmahardieskincare’s Brilliance Facial Oil - patted and massaged on •
Falling asleep 💤 with music in my ears and my almost threenager’s foot very close to my FACE! But it’s too cute to move, so if her foot is even possibly softer in the morning she can thank my superior face hydration 🤩
Bonne nuit 😴
Did you know that Jasmine is known as Jati in Sanskrit and is used in Ayurveda for numerous centuries in the treatment of several diseases ? .
Jasmine symbolizes many things in different parts of the world. It is a sign of divine hope in India and the sweetness of women in China. The jasmine essential oil has been traditionally used as an aphrodisiac in many parts of the world. It is admired as the ‘perfume of pure love’ and thus the expression “no perfume without Jasmine.”
These beautiful Jasmine Lotion Bars are now available on the site. To shop, click on link in profile.
My skin needs some TLC in the harsh winter months and nothing does a better job than this overnight mask. I use it as a day moisturizer under my makeup and also slather it all over my face right before bed. It keeps my skin hydrated and plump all day! Not to mention, it smells like apricots and peaches 🍑
