Here in the US, well, the sleeping mask craze hasn’t quite caught on. Sleeping masks can be used as the last step in your skincare regimen and worn ALL night without being washed off. In the morning, you simply wash your face and apparently reap the rewards. I have many, many Korean and Japanese sleeping masks and many are a little bit gimmicky although some are fabulous. Many promise brightening benefits as well as ones that whiten skin or treat skin to a host of hydrating benefits! And some offer “bouncy” skin! So imagine my surprise when The Body Shop decided to launch a sleeping mask promoting “bouncy” skin!
Yeah, I’m not a kid but my sister gives me an Easter Basket every year and vice versa. I even make ones for my friends! I include candy but more important I include beauty and makeup dodads that I think they’ll enjoy like lip balms and cutesy Easter themed beauty and accessorizes.
Here are some cute makeup and beauty ideas for your Easter Baskets!
Last weekend I went to drool over Otherwise in concert you know, because Adrian Patrick, dude…..! Obsessed much?
Anyway, I packed up what I needed for the weekend and of course, I had my trusty Sephora Eye Makeup Remover. Typically it’s the first thing I pack because I have visions of myself in black eyeliner and having no way to remove it while at a hotel that only has small bars of soap that could possibly get stuck in your nooks and crannies when washing with them.
So yeah, I pack eye makeup remover first.
I packed up my bag and was quite pleased and happy with myself. I was not happy early into the next morning upon getting back to my room and realizing I forgot to pack facial cotton. It was late when I got back to my room and I was tired so I had to sit there with a piece of harsh toilet paper dosed with makeup remover to get my eye makeup off. Seriously, toilet paper and eye makeup remover are NOT a match made in heaven. It just doesn’t work.
I’m a not a huge, huge lover of setting sprays. I love facial mists with a passion but actually setting my makeup with a mist kinda freaks me out. It makes me feel like I spent a ton of time on my makeup and I’m proceeding to mist myself with water right after. It’s a weird concept to me! But none the less they are very, very popular and makeup lovers adore them so I’m always willing to give them a try and see if they work for me.
Up until now I’m not a huge fan but maybe, just maybe Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous Makeup Setting Spray could change my mind.
Dr. Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm ($35) is saving my dry skin life lately as the weather decides if it wants to stay cold or perhaps warm up a bit. I’m kinda in a transitioning stage and my skin is coming out of hibernation. One thing that’s really, really been working out well for me is Cerave Hydrating Cleanser. I stopped using cleansing oil and my other cleansers and I use this only and my skin is a lot less dry!
On top of that I use Dr. Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm on drier, patchier areas and yay for being hydrated and smooth!
