A Shot Of Hydration… Mask

Processed With Darkroom

This week’s face mask may not be pretty, but it sure does give a “shot” of hydration.

With this cold winter weather (and feeling a little under the weather), my skin has been really dry so it seemed like the perfect time to try Dr. Jart+’s Shake & Shot Rubber Hydro Mask. I had been eyeing this mask for a while and love that it’s a little different. Two pouches come in this cup, and you pour both pouch contents into it and shake until you have a mask! How fun?!

This mask feels refreshingly cool when applied to the skin, and with a combination of Vitamin B5 and an “expert moist complex” it sure does deliver on the hydration. You should totally check it out.

And word to the wise… be careful when opening the pouches to pour the contents into the cup for mixing so you don’t end up with a big mess on your bathroom counter… LOL.

Refreshingly Tone…r

Processed With Darkroom

Toner… It’s the often forgotten step in a skincare routine that can make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin. It removes the remaining dirt your cleanser missed, levels out your skin’s pH balance, can help hydrate your skin and even allow the products you use afterwards to absorb better.

As far as toners go, I have been using California Pure Naturals Clarifying Toner for the past month. It has their signature Blackberry Antioxidant Complex that brightens and energizes the skin along with Black Tea, Rose Geranium and Cucumber to soothe the skin, minimize pores and even out your skin tone.

When using this Clarifying Toner, my skin has a refreshing tingling feeling and it leaves my face feeling extra cleansed.

Oh So Serum…

Processed With Darkroom

I don’t know about you, but I love face serums. They can be the key to a great skincare routine with the ability to do amazing things for your skin. That said, I was super excited to try California Pure Naturals Renewal Facial Serum. It has the same Blackberry Antioxidant Complex as their Cleanser, plus Argan Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. And it’s a natural skincare product.

I have been using this serum for the past few weeks, and so far I am happy with the results. It has a nice, smooth texture, is easy to apply, absorbs well into the skin, helps keep my skin hydrated (I’ve seriously gone without a moisturizer a couple nights, and my skin was still moisturized!) and all the right ingredients to fight the signs of aging.

*Please note I was gifted this serum to review.

A Revitalizing Cleanser

Happy Skincare Sunday! And it was a sunny and relatively warm day here in Michigan.

I have been using this California Pure Naturals Revitalizing Cleansing Gel for the past couple weeks, and it is so refreshing and gentle on the skin. Using a Blackberry Antioxidant Complex made of fruits grown in California, it brightens and energizes the skin with a youthful glow. This cleanser also has orange peel and calendula flower extracts which boosts collagen production.

This Cleanser is all natural, free of parabens, sulfates and gluten and vegan. And it’s only $9.99 on Amazon! Linked here: https://amzn.to/2C4mn0j

An Anti-Aging “Prescriptment”

Processed With Darkroom

So… It’s the first Face Mask Friday of 2019! I’m excited to see what fun face masks I find this year, and I started with this Dr. Jart+ All That Contours Prescriptment (yes, that’s how they spell it) Face Mask. Infused with some great ingredients (see below), this mask helps with anti-aging and skin elasticity. I don’t know about you but I’m all about anything that helps my skin look younger!

Ingredients:

  • Caffeine – Caffeine firms the skin and helps with contours.
  • Isomerized Safflower Acid – This ingredient focuses on improving skin elasticity.
  • Aloe Leaf Juice – Aloe is an amazing hydrator that also soothes the skin.

This was an interesting face mask as it came in two pieces that were more of a stretchy gel material. The bottom half even goes around your ears to hold it in place (which also makes it really tight). It was super easy to apply, and the best part? My skin appeared to look younger right after I used it. I love it when a mask shows immediate results, so this face mask is a winner in my book. Great way to kick off the New Year!

Candy Cane Dreams… and Masks

Processed With Darkroom

Can you believe that it is the last Face Mask Friday of 2018?! This year flew by. And since it is technically still the holidays, I decided to try Ulta Beauty’s Sweet Candy Cane Mud Mask. With cooling peppermint oil and shea butter, this mask is supposed to be incredibly moisturizing.

I love the pink color of this face mask. It brightens up a gloomy day. And though I was skeptical of what the results would be, I can say that my skin felt moisturized and smoother after using this. The only downside? Since it is a Candy Cane face mask with peppermint oil, I expected it to have that refreshing peppermint smell (confession – I love peppermint!!!), but it was lacking that scent. That said, I would say this mask is still worth checking out.
