My name is Alex and I'm a health and beauty blogger on Wordpress, Instagram and Twitter. I'm currently working as a graduate student but also a lover of all things beauty including makeup, skin care, health and hair.
I've been a fan of k-beauty for 6 years now and have always enjoyed trying out new products. One of my favourite brands is the maker of this mask, Skinfood, whose products are made with natural ingredients that promote skin care. Every product is designated to a certain skin problem which makes choosing the why you need very simple. This mask contains albumin, found in egg whites, which works to extract and eliminate pore clogging impurities. Another great function of albumen/egg whites is skin tightening. I often also use this mask on my neck to keep a double chin from developing. This mask also contains kaolin clay which has always been an ingredient I've looked for in a mask as it acts as an additional agent to help draw impurities from the pores. I use the mask about once a week to once every two weeks. I really enjoy the scent and consistency which honestly feels like spreading whipped Egg White on my face. As it is a tightening mask, it's important to keep the product away from the eye and mouth area to prevent the development of wrinkles. Another thing that I enjoy about the Skinfood brand is that every product which comes in a jar/screw top container has a hygienic second lid which keeps the contents fresh, considering they contain natural and perishable ingredients. After washing off the mask with lukewarm water, my face doesn't feel dried out or super tight but extremely soft and nourished. I highly recommend it to anyone getting into the mask game as well as those looking for quality skin care on a budget. I purchase most of my k-beauty products off of eBay where shipping is most often free and products themselves are always reasonably priced.
I still can't believe how amazing the supermud by glamglow is. It really penetrates deep into the pores to get all of that gunk out and I love the feel of my skin afterward! While this mask is on the pricy side it is one that I know to work for many different people and skin types and really does what it says. I use it usually when I have a few breakouts but sometimes I just do it to see how much it extracts from my nose and cheek area. Kinda gross but good riddance to all that dirt and bacteria!
This stuff is the bomb! I've reviewed it before but honestly I can't praise this product enough! Every morning I wake up with the softest and plush skin. It was a lifesaver during the dry winter months and I'm even continuing to use it into the summer because of how good it is.
Review for: Drunk Elephant Hit It Off(TM) Duo more...
found this little combo by Drunk Elephant Skincare in the checkout line at Sephora and absolutely had to add it to my purchase. It includes the Beste Jelly Cleanser and the Lala Retro Whipped Creme Moisturizer. One of the first things I liked about the products was the cleanser’s packaging. The lid twists and opens up a little hole for the product to come out which I really enjoy for hygienic reasons. The cleanser itself is very gentle and foams up nicely with a small amount of product which I am always a fan of. The moisturizer is a little thicker than I’m used to but is 100% necessary for the dryness brought on by winter. It actually reminds me a lot of the Skyn Iceland Arctic Hydrating Balm which is an absolutely amazing moisturizer. It keeps the skin nicely hydrated under makeup as well which is key as I get dry patches randomly in the winter. I also love this combo because it’s amazing to take with you when out of town and the packaging makes for really spacious packing. Let me know what your thoughts are or if you have any questions!
Review for: Kat Von D Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick OG Lolita 0.12 oz/ 3.4 g more...
I just received my complimentary Kat Von D Beauty Studded Kiss VoxBox from Influenster ! Ive been a fan of Kat Von D products for such a long time so this VoxBox is so exciting for me! The shade I received was “OG Lolita” which is a warm pinky nude/dusty rose shade. The formula is super creamy and really pigmented, but not too glossy. I’m really excited to use this product!
Okay... I've only been using this face oil for 4 days and I'm already in love. It says to use at night but I've opted to also use it over my moisturizer to give my skin the extra hydration it needs during the winter months. Now, I've never been one to use oils. My skin is supes oily on a regular basis, often requiring me to wear 2 layers of setting spray; one under and one over my makeup. But this stuff.....*tearing up*... absorbs so quickly into the skin and doesn't leave me with any extra unnecessary and infuriating grease throughout the day. Furthermore, this oil is packed with vitamin C and "repairing fatty acids" derived from maracuja. I didn't even know that so there's a little fun fact. I highly x10 recommend this face oil for anyone with oily skin like me, that has been hearing all the rave about oils for the face and has been scared to try them out of fear looking as shiny as the Chrysler building
