Affordable Great Masks

Monday, March 16, 2015


Hello Beauties!
I am excited to bring to you my second post on this blog all about affordable masks from the drugstore. I am a huge believer that masks are a VERY important step in every ladies skin care regime. Masks are there to address specific skin concerns whether that be acne, hydration, dull and uneven skin tone. Pretty much, any concern you have there is probably a mask out there to address it.  By now I'm sure all you dotted bow readers got an idea of what type of skin concerns I face with, if not, than let me quickly give you an idea: Acne, skin discoloration, dull and lack luster skin. Some of the masks I have used and seen great and immediate results are Origins Dink Up mask,   Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay(You can purchase it from Whole foods or Amazon),  and  Origins Charcoal Mask .  The drugstore is a great place to look for effective and affordable masks and one popular brand in particular is Freeman. Freeman is  a well known drugstore brand for great masks. The price for the masks vary from $3.00 to $5.00 depending on where you buy it from. 

The two masks that I picked up from Ulta recently are Avocado and Oatmeal Clay mask and the Pineapple facial enzyme mask. I use the two masks together. I first apply the clay mask and it is your traditional green mask. The avocado and oatmeal helps with congested skin, blackheads, and breakouts while still keeping the skin hydrated and balanced. I keep the clay mask for at most 30 min or until it is fully dried. I wash off the mask with warm water and than I apply the enzymes mask. I keep the mask for about 30 min as well. It is a gel consistency and smells like pineapples (YUM). The enzyme mask helps with scaring, skin discoloration and any dry skin. It is a a different form of exfoliating rather than the traditional manual bead scrubbing which is harsh for the skin at times.  So far, I am really happy with these two masks and they costed both less than $10 which is a total bargain. I highly recommend picking these two masks from Ulta because you can use the Ulta $3.50 off $10 coupon!!!

InstaNatural:Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum Review

Sunday, March 15, 2015

Hello Beauties, I've got another skin care review today!! 

I told you in my previous post that I am on a skin care kick and I do not see it stopping anytime soon. Since my skin is recovering from sever acne 5 months ago, my skin is currently at a stage of recovery. My skin concerns now are scaring and your every then and there small breakouts during that time of the month. Therefore, I have been focusing my attention on products that have ingredients that address those concerns. I had the great opportunity to try out three of insta natural skin products: Pore tightening vitamin C facial toner,Age Defying skin clearing serum, and Vitamin C moisturizer. Right out of the bat I am going to say that I love these three products. Todays post will cover the star of the three..... Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum.
