SheaMoisture Sensitive Skin Mud Mask | First Impression

Today I am sharing my first impressions of SheaMoisture’s Peace Rose Sensitive Skin Mud Mask.

Initially, I wasn’t that impressed because I didn’t feel that there was a huge difference in my skin. However, after my moisturizer disappeared, my skin was still very soft and didn’t feel as dry as it normally would.

Thanks for watching!

You can purchase the mask here for $3.99: http://bit.ly/2n8shEZ

derma e Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask

I received this mask several months ago in one of my subscription boxes. I’ve had it for so long that I don’t even remember which box it came in. LOL! Anyway, now that I have been focused on relaunching my YouTube channel, I have been able to try out some products that have just been sitting in my bathroom.

I feel like there has been a lot of hype around charcoal masks lately, so I was very interested in trying the Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask by derma e. So, let’s talk about it!

First, let’s see what they say about this product on their website:

Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask deeply detoxifies skin of harmful micropollutants in two ways: (1) Natural clays infused with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladerwrack and Activated Charcoal lift out dirt, oil and bacteria to decongest pores as the mask dries; (2) Apricot Seed Powder exfoliates away dead skin cells and captured debris upon removal. Kaolin and Bentonite Clays absorb excess oils and impurities, relieving skin congestion. Kimarine® Wakame is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals). Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water-binding properties, supporting healthy skin hydration and nourishment. Activated Charcoal, known for absorbing 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities, purges pores of deeply rooted toxins, then Apricot Seed Powder gently exfoliates away micropollutants. Ideal for oily, active or urban skin types, even safe for reactive skin (minimal ingredients and allergy-tested), used this formula once or twice a week for skin that looks dramatically fresher, healthier and purely glowing.

So after reading this, I was excited to see if this product would live up to the hype! The mask goes on gray and dries white. While applying it, I noticed that there was a tingling feeling and my face started to get tighter the longer the mask stayed on. That let me know it was working. You can also feel the exfoliating beads as you are massaging it in.

After letting the mask stay on for about 5 minutes, I rinsed it off. I do not feel like my skin was glowing anymore than it normally does, but I did notice that my skin felt quite a bit softer than normal.

I am not sure if I will purchase this in the full size or not since I already have an exfoliator that I use often.

View my YouTube video below to see my reaction to the mask while applying it!

Facial Radiance Illuminating Moisturizer by First Aid Beauty Review

So y’all know that I have been searching high and low for an all over face illuminator. See my reviews here and  here . I’ve been wanting my skin to GLOWWWWWW! My goal has been to find a product with a golden glow versus a pearl or champagne glow. Whether or not it also has a moisturizing effect is an added bonus. Have I found a winner???

I went into Sephora and asked one of the team members for any recommendations. If you are a woman of color, you know that it’s hard to ask a white person for recommendations because a lot of times they do not take into consideration the difference in skin tones. Therefore, they will recommend products that will complement their complexions, which is completely understandable. I knew that before I asked the girl to help me, but I still asked anyway. She led me to every single product with a pearl tint. LOL! I just laughed to myself and she actually ended up directing me to a black lady who she felt would provide better assistance. I was so grateful because she hooked me up!

She introduced me to this amazing illuminator by First Aid Beauty called Facial Radiance Illuminating Moisturizer (retail price: $34)! I swatched it on the back of my hand and my face should have turned into the heart eye emoji because that’s literally how I felt. I was immediately in love! All I could see was the perfect golden glow on my hand and I couldn’t WAIT to apply it to my face!

Scroll down to read the rest of the review…

 

The next time I did a full face, I tried it out! If you look at the pictures below, you see that there is a brush applicator attached to the tube to make for easy application. I actually do not use the brush to apply it to my face. I place a couple of dots on my forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin and then rub it in with my hands and then blend it with a wet Beauty Blender. Pictures really don’t catch the glow, but, the glow is THERE! It is stunning! My skin was radiant and (even though my skin is generally blemish free) it smoothed out the appearance of my skin.

It’s a lightweight moisturizer, which really isn’t enough for my dry skin. That’s not a big deal to me. I just apply Aquaphor before applying this. After I applied this, I continued with my makeup routine by applying bb cream all over my face and the rest of my makeup.

I think I can end my search for an illuminator because I do believe I’ve found a winner! I definitely rate this product a 5 on a 1 to 5 scale!

Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator Review + Swatch

I was excited to come across this product on sale in Target a couple of weeks ago.  I have been wanting to try an illuminator that looks good on my complexion, isn’t too shimmery, and doesn’t break my skin out. So, for the price, I thought this would be good to try out.

First things first, I purchased this product in the color Bronze Light. Second, a little goes a longggg way. Two to three drops are enough to cover the tops of your cheekbone and around your eye. I am not sure if it is because of my medium to deep skin tone, but I do not feel like there is a lot of shimmer in this product. I barely notice it on my skin. I feel like I am literally just applying it and putting product on my face for no reason. I’m pretty disappointed, but maybe one day I will find a good illuminator. I may end up trying the illuminators and highlighters from Becca…I’ve heard nothing but great reviews from their products. I just have a hard time spending that kind of money for a product I will not wear very often. 

Showing the difference between the product fresh out of the tube (thick line) and it rubbed in (bottom). As you can see, there is really no shimmer in this product. 😦

 This product is no longer available on Target’s website, but it can be purchased here from Amazon.

What face illuminator would you recommend? Let me know in the comments.

What’s in My Birchbox? | November 2015

I was subscribed to Ipsy and Glossybox and I was consistently unsatisfied with the products I received, so I thought I would switch over to Birchbox. This is my first box and I’m so excited I made the decision to subscribe! The products are great…especially the MAKE Face Gloss! It’s my favorite product from this box…you’ll find out why in my review below! Anyway, this box is worth $89.50, so for $10, it’s TOTALLY worth it! Scroll down to read my thoughts about all of the products I received! 🙂


 Temple Spa La La Lagoon Aromatic Bath & Shower Gel – Full Size, $18

My skin is really sensitive, so I do not use shower gels on my body. I am more of a Dove soap for sensitive skin kind of girl. It does have a semi strong smell to it. According to the packaging, it is aromatic, so I am assuming that is why it is a little strong.  But, if you do not like strong scents, then I wouldn’t recommend it. However, based on the reviews, some people enjoyed the smell and found it to be relaxing. It’s always a preference thing…so if you can find your way to a Birchbox store, I would recommend you taking a whiff before buying.

MAKE Face Gloss – Full Size, $25

OMG! OMG! Oh My God!!! This face gloss is AMAZING!!!! I have been a vaseline girl my entire life (read about my obsession here). But, since trying this out, I can’t say whether or not I will be using vaseline on my face anymore. This gloss keeps my face moisturized for the entire day and a little goes a LOOOONGGGG way. My skin is not shiny or oily looking, it just looks perfectly moisturized. It also leaves my skin feeling super soft. I love it! It is the perfect moisturizer for my dry skin. Based off of the reviews though, I am not sure if I would recommend this product for people with oily skin because it seems to make oily skin extra oily.

LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in Smoke Screen – Full Size, $10  

This eyeshadow is awesome! The pigment is super rich and the formula is long lasting. It stayed on for hours and hours without fading. I had to use an oil based makeup remover to get it off of my eyes. I tried wiping it off with a tissue just to see if there would be any transfer, and there wasn’t. I definitely recommend this eyeshadow. You’ll love it!

 Living proof.* Perfect hair Day (PhD) dry shampoo – Full Size, $22 

I have never used a dry shampoo. However, I have been considering trying one since I only wash my hair every two weeks. It would be nice to have a little refresher at the start of week 2. Enter Living Proof PhD. The smell is so fresh and it leaves my scalp and hair feeling very fresh and adds some moisture. I am not sure if I sprayed too much, because the next day, my hair felt heavier and kind of greasy…which it should have been removing. Lol! But, with that being said, I am not completely turned off to the idea of dry shampoo or this brand. I will try this one out again and not spray as much and I will probably try out another brand or two before committing to buy this in the full size bottle.

BioRepublic Skincare Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Sheet Mask – Set of 3 masks, $14.50   

I have never used a face mask before, but I loved this one. It smelled soooo good and it left my skin feeling moisturized and clean…although, a tad sticky once I removed the mask. Butttt….the next day I woke up with a few small bumps on my face, so I am not sure if it irritated my skin or not. I will be trying some of the other face masks offered by BioRepublic if I can find one for sensitive skin. Head over to my Instagram page to see a picture of me trying out this mask! You’ll get a kick out of it! Lol!
