A Panacea For Breakouts


A few weeks ago, Panacea sent me this Daily Facial Cleanser to try. I have been using it ever since… and I kinda love it!

This creamy cleanser does a great job of cleansing your face without drying it out thanks to a perfect combination of the below ingredients:

  • Moisture Shield Complex – made up of Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Methylpropanediol, this complex leaves the skin radiant and moisturized.
  • Laminaria Japonica – this Japanese seaweed removes toxins, leaving behind glowing skin.
  • Vitamin E – this antioxidant prevents UV damage and protects the skin from free radicals.
  • Green Tea Extract – this antioxidant has anti-aging and skin soothing benefits.
  • Fig Extract – this ingredient is known to increase skin hydration and can decrease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne.

Ever since I started using this Panacea cleanser, I have noticed that it helps my skin keep that healthy glow while reducing the number of breakouts. Plus, a little bit of this stuff goes a long way. You’ll be happy to know that it is also Paraben-Free, Cruelty-Free and Sulfate-Free. You should totally check it out.

Add A Little Panda… Mask

Happy Face Mask Friday! So ever since I was a little girl at the San Diego Zoo, I have loved pandas. My sorority’s mascot was a panda. Even my oldest daughter’s nursery was panda themed (and that was before you could find panda room decor… thank goodness Etsy was an option!), so when I saw this SNP Panda Brightening Sheet Mask, I knew I had to try it. Plus, with all this cold and gloomy winter weather, my skin has been looking a little dull.

This Panda mask is super fun and easy to use. After cleansing your face, apply this mask, leave it on for 10-20 minutes, massage the remaining serum into your face afterwards and your done.

But what did I think of this super cute mask? While my skin didn’t necessarily appear brighter, it was very soothing and refreshing and I would use it again.

A Mudd Of A Mask

It’s time for another Face Mask Friday! Over the holidays I picked up the PUR Cosmetics/Grinch movie face mask collab set so I could try PUR’s four best-selling face masks.

This week I tried the Dirty Girl Detoxifying Mudd Mask with Clay. Overall, I was pleased with the results. This mask definitely gave my face a deep clean and my skin felt smoother afterwards.

The downsides of this mask were that it was hard to remove and that my skin was really red for about an hour after using this mask, so it is probably not great for those with sensitive skin.

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!

Sugar Cookies… and Gloss

Processed With Darkroom

I love MAC Cosmetics lip glosses. And I love a good sale. So imagine how much I love this sale alert?! MAC’s Oh Sweetie Lip Glosses are part of Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale!

I am a huge fan of this lip line and wear this pink lip gloss all the time. The color is called Sugar Cookies (and it smells and tastes like a sugar cookie too… ummm, yum!!!), and it’s the perfect combination of a shimmery unique hue that still works for an everyday look. You should totally check it out at the link below. Enjoy!
