This is where I talk about some of the beauty products I've been loving lately...  it's mostly masks this month. I really like my masks and probably own more facial treatments than eyeshadow LOL

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial
I've always approached peels with caution since my skin tends to be sensitive. This at home peel is formulated with 25 percent AHAs (glycolic, tartaric, lactic, and citric acids) and 2 percent BHAs (salicylic acid) as well as matcha, apple, and niacinamide to brighten and improve skin texture and tone. I became interested in trying this after a positive experience Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Glycolic Night Serum. This is more of a weekly treatment. I use it Sundays and I'm always amazed with how radiant, clear and clarified my face looks for the next few days. Other than a slight tingle with the initial use, I haven't experienced any irritation or dryness. I actually look forward to using this treatment every week.

Beautycounter Purifying Charcoal Mask
This mask is a total savior when my skin feels congested because it's super effective at deep cleaning and drawing out impurities.  It contains nutrient-rich kaolin clay and activated charcoal which work equally well on my dry skin as well as my husband's oily skin. This particular version was part of the Beautycounter x Target collab and I bought 3 of them at the time. When I run out, I will probably make the switch to the Beautycounter No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask.

French Girl Organics Rose Lip Polish
I'd heard a lot about this brand before purchasing this lip scrub at the Anthropologie which recently opened up in my neighborhood. This product is made of organic ingredients including a mix of shea butter, olive oil, rare botanical waxes and sugar. I only have to use the tiniest bit and it works gently and always leaves my lips feeling super soft and moisturized. And it has a really lovely and invigorating rose and peppermint scent.

Herbivore Brighten Pineapple Enzyme + Gemstone Instant Glow Mask
I pretty much fell in love with this mask the first time I used it. It is a clean beauty product that brightens skin using pineapple enzyme, micronized Brazilian tourmaline gemstone, rice powder, and rose water. I love it because it smells amazing, works and my skin always looks glowy and feels fantastic afterwards. I'm already on my second jar and I see more in my future.

CelleClé Omega-Zyme C Cream Enzyme Masque*
Vitamin C has been a vital ingredient in my skincare regimen lately and I credit it for the diminished appearance of my freckles and dark spots. This is a nourishing cream enzyme mask with papaya, pineapple and cranberry that work to infuse skin with nourishing omegas and protective antioxidants, while gently lifting pollution from the skin's surface. This mask is favorite of mine in the morning because of how it leaves my skin feeling facial fresh. I also like to double down on my Vitamin C treatments in the AM.

Hello Rowena, we always present interesting products, this time my attention went to the charcoal mask, my skin is oily and I think it could use very well, and clay has properties to control the oiliness of the skin.

I would not say I have more facial treatments than eyeshadows, but I still manage to have an extensive collection. And I see a few on your list that I would want to add to my collection as well.

Hello Rowena! The masks all inspire me a lot, especially the charcoal one, in this time of the year my skin would need, I got some impurities and blemish. The lip polish sounds very cool, I'm truly obsessed with lips stuff! xo

Emmylou said...

These products all sound awesome, Rowena:) Am so jealous...unfortunately, because of my acne-prone skin, I'm so scared to try new skincare products most of the time:( I really do need to add a Vitamin C product to my regimen though. Have too many acne scars, and that would really help big time.


Your recent love are so interesting
