May Favorites!!!!

Hello, its that time where I tell you all my favorites of the month. I've tried some new products that were some hits, not all of my new products made it to this list but some did. So lets get started.

1. Freeman Facial Polishing Mask Charcoal and Black Sugar. This is a drugstore mask that is a detoxifying mask that also exfoliates the skin. This is a thick paste like mask that has a lot of sugar in it. This has charcoal in it which is the ingredient that helps clear out the pores. There are some ingredients that are a little questionable. However this mask is a great drugstore find. I will do a review on this later on.

2. Eva NYC therapy treatment hair mask. This is a new hair treatment mask that ive been using. this is a thinner mask then the cholesterol, which I think is better. The cholesterol I feel helped but I think because it was a thick formula it couldn't penetrate into the hair as much. I will do a review on this product later on.

3. Too Faced the Chocolate solei Bronzer. Ive been really into contouring lately and Ive been using this a lot lately. It blends well and it is a great color.

4. Nars Blush in the shade Deepthroat. aside from the name this blush is beautiful for this time. This is a great blush for the spring time/ summer time. Its a peachy pink blush with some shimmer in it. It looks great on my skin tone and it blends well.

5. Naked 3 Palette. Ive been using this palette so much lately. It has rose gold shades and it looks great on almost all skin tones. The shadows blend well and they are very pigmented. The brush is perfect for the eyeshadows as well.

6. Sephora Rouge Shine lipstick. Ive been using this a lot. It is so moisturizing and it has great pigment. I highly recommend this product.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark circles Concealer REVIEW!!

This is a concealer that has been talked about by almost every beauty guru. This is a concealer that comes in a twist cap tube. It has a sponge tip applicator that you apply directly on the skin. They have 6 different shades.

 I purchased this product in the lightest shade. I like to use my concealer as a highlight. I apply this in a triangle under my eyes, cupid bow, sides of my nostrils, bridge of my nose and my inner forehead. The lightest shade wasn't too light it was just a shade darker than my foundation, which is a couple shades darker than my natural skintone. The spongetip applicator is very soft and it apply product without taking makeup off or leaving too much behind. It doesn't blend it out so I use my beauty blender to blend into my skin. Its hard to see how much product you have dispersed when looking at it. if you pushed too much out you wouldn't know. The coverage of this is almost full. I wouldn't consider it full because it didn't fully cover my pimple. However this has perfect coverage with undereyes, it conceals the undereyes and doesn't settle into creases. This product would be better if you got to see how much product came out. And if it concealed more.

But I overall like this product and will continue to repurchase. This product is $8. You can find it at target, walmart, Ulta, Cvs, or any other drug store.

GlamGlow Super Mud clearing treatment REVIEW!!

There are three different GlamGlow products as far as face masks. There is a black, blue and white. The one I am reviewing is the white one. I have been trying to get rid of my blackheads and to help lessen the appearance of my large pores. I used this mask as a spot treatment, only on my nose, inner cheek area, and the chin. When I applied this it felt very cooling. It wasn't really tingly. When this dries it looked as if it drew out the oil in my pores. You can see a difference where the mask dried and where my pores were.

As far as the ingredients go. There is peppermint oil in this product which gives it the cooling sensation. Peppermint oil is a common skin irritant. This tightens pores temporarily however this damages skin cells by irritating them. This causes more wrinkles, sagging and loss of collagen production. This product does however contain salicylic, lactic, and glycolic acid. Which helps with collagen production, temporarily pore reduction, and it helps with anti aging. However in this product not enough is present to do much. Another point to consider is the packaging. This is jar packaging so the beneficial ingredients will turn unstable after opening and closing it. Another issue I would like to address is there is a lot of fragrance. This is also irritating to the skin and it causes the skin to decrease in the amount of collagen, more wrinkles, and sagging. As well as oily skin can get more oily with irritation to the skin.

Overall I would not recommend this product. There really are no plus to using this product. It is irritating to the skin and it could cause aging. The price of this product is ridiculous for the quality and eh amount you get. It is $69 and you can get it from sephora.
