Glamglow Youthmud Mask Review

Not too long ago, I started exploring masks, boy I was missing all the fun. i I have tried a few and have yet to try out more. Masks are not only good for your skin but they can be fun and super funny at times, especially if you have one on and your hubby comes home from work and sees you. That funny face he puts is hilarious. Not to mention they can be so relaxing and smoothing especially on days were you feel a bit stressed or you just want to have a day to yourself.

In the past few months, I have been using Glamglow Youthmud Mask. Actually this is my second one, since the bottle is so small I had to purchase another one for $19 at Sephora. The full size one would probably last me longer but I can’t afford to waste $69 so the small one will do for now.

What it’s supposed to do: What it is: This mud mask can be used by women or men and it is supposed to leave your skin noticeably radiant and glowing. It is supposed to work with the body's natural moisturizing collagen to provide gentle resurfacing exfoliation and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer. While providing tighter skin texture and tighter pores, it provides a more youthful appearance and absorbs impurities without removing natural oils. This mask is also parabens, sulfates and phthalates free which it a plus. (Source Sephora & Glamglow Websites)

How I use it: I use this mask twice a week and I start by washing my face until its super clean. Then I pat dry my face with a clean towel and then I apply the mask evenly or at least try to apply evenly and then wait 10 minutes or until it’s all dried up. Then I rinse with warm water to make it easier to come off and then pat dry my face.

My thoughts: Well you all know I have oily combination skin and I always aim to try products that are good for my skin type so this was a good choice. The mask itself has a muddy color, duh mud mask and some green tea leaf pieces inside witch can make applying the mask a bit messy but I am ok with it. It does have a smell to it that it’s a bit hard to describe but it doesn’t bother me at all. if you are big on smells I suggest you smell it at the store just in case. When applying the mask you feel a tingling sensation which to me that means its working its magic. After its dry, I can see the oils and dirt that comes out of the pores which I find a bit fascinating lol… and after rinsing it off, I love how fresh and soft my face feels and how clear my skin complexion looks. This mask has also help keep blackheads on my nose away and when I get acne during that time of the month it minimizes all irritation and acne size which to me that amazing.

Have you used any of the Glamglow Masks if so which ones and what where your thoughts?

Breast Cancer Awareness Inspired Nail Collaboration

Hello my darlings, today’s Mani-Monday collaboration with Tasha and Donah is inspired by Breast Cancer Awareness. Creating awareness and spreading the word is a huge deal for me, since I have two survivors in my life my aunt Denny and my friend Miriam. It’s always good to show support, hope and courage even though it seems tough at times. Early detection is the key to beating this horrible disease by checking your breasts once a month and reporting to your doctor any abnormalities you find.

As mentioned today Mani-Monday is our way of spreading awareness, here are the nail polishes I used Essie in Fiesta, Zoya in Arabella, Orly Top 2 Bottom clear polish and Breast Cancer Ribbon Nail Jewels. I didn't do anything too fancy just sweet and simple just to show my support and hopefully finding a cure someday.

Illustration Breast Cancer Awareness

I am sure you all know that October is Breast Cancer awareness month, so I wanted to illustrate something that would reflect that. I have known people that passed away because of breast Cancer and I also know women that have survived it. This disease, just like any other type of cancer is a hard thing to deal with but with love, strength, courage, and hope I think we can beat it. We need to believe that there is a cure out there and we should all stick together to spread awareness and early detection but checking your breast at least once a month can make a huge difference. Spread the word and let’s show some support to our women warriors who are battling this disease.
