Top Five Favorite Facemasks

….That actually work!!!  Coming from the Queen of facemasks, you are about to find out some of my absolute favorites.

Everyone wants to have perfect skin. . . . obviously.  Sometimes people break out, have dry skin and don’t want wrinkles. ITS NEVER TOO SOON TO PREVENT WRINKLES!!!!!!  Oh you’re only 19 (almost 20) years old, you don’t need to worry about wrinkles, you have great skin.. blah blah blah. WELL, I never want to look old sooo, here are the products that I personally love. Hopefully in 20 years you’ll see that they work. These products range from many problem areas like wrinkles, breakouts and dryness.

Lets start with my fifth top favorite, click on any of the pictures to go directly to the product!

5. Mario Badescu Flower and Tonic Mask

This is available on the brands website, Nordstrom and Amazon. This mask makes you feel AMAZING. It just completely rejuvenated my skin and I absolutely love it! It is very moisturizing and smells fabulous! I use this every once in a while when I need a change from my top 3 masks. This is also my favorite skin care brand

4. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

This is a spot treatment mask and I use this EVERY time I even feel a breakout. It is well worth the money and a little bit goes a long way!  Plus it works.

3. Hot and Gold Firming Facemask

This is sold by Perfectly Posh. It is great for keeping the skin moisturized and wrinkles away. It makes me feel like a goddess because it is bright and shimmery gold. I feel so pretty after using this mask and so far so good no wrinkles or dry skin! I use this 2- 3 times per week and it is awesome!


2. Rubber Modeling Masks

These take the dullness right out of your face! These are the kinds of masks that are used in spas and those fancy Facebook videos you see.  It  completely gave me an uplift to my energy and skin. I loved it. My skin was glowing. Takes away all dryness and gunk on your skin. I cannot rave over this enough. BTW it is far cheaper to get a larger quantity of this per mask. The linked quantity will yield about 50 masks as opposed to 14 in the smaller size. There are multiple different types of this mask that you can find under the related to of this mask.  The pearl mask is my personal favorite and BAM IT MADE MY 2ND FAVORITE.

1. Neutrogena Light Therapy Mask

This mask is to die for. I instantly felt changes in my skin after the first use. It feels a little weird to wear but it tightens the skin like no other. I always use a moisturizer after it though. It completely gets rid of breakouts in a day. The downside is that the activator is only good for 30 uses….. IF you don’t know how to hack it. I will link a video for you to use if you like to save money after buying the mask. It is very simple to hack and you save about $30 a month and have PERFECT SKIN. Only 10 minutes a day keeps the acne and breakouts away.  CLICK HERE FOR THE HACK VIDEO   Plus this is on sale right now for $20 , instead of $40.  ( As of 12/31/17)


I hope this helps you and your skin care facemasks needs.  Remember these masks are high quality so they are a bit more pricey. You want quality not quantity. A bunch of masks that don’t work are a waste of money compared to a few that do.

Next Hair Color??

Sorry I haven’t blogged for a little over a week, between school and moving, I haven’t had much time to spare!


But anyway, my most recent dilemma is… WHAT HAIR COLOR DO I WANT NEXT?? Ive been trying to decide all week and my appointment is next Wednesday.. AHHH

I’m going to drop some pictures and I need YOU to help me decide what I want to try.. your opinion will help!! I know I want an ombre of some sort but I’m not too sure about the colors, remember that I’m super pale so that is a factor when picking hair color ( but anything is better than black right?)



Look at my Pinterest for more of an idea of what I might want and please give me any opinion you have!!



Thanks for your help!!


Hair Transformation, Black to Brown

I have been box dying my hair black for years.. at the time it was simple and cheap. . . what a mistake that was.






This color took over a month and four appointments to achieve from black
lots of lightening treatments results in lots of processed hair.. gotta start taking better care of it!!
Thank god one of my best friends(@_cut.color.chelsea_) is a hair stylist and was willing to fix my hair for me! She also gave me a few pro tips…
  • Never box dye your hair
  • Don’t use ANY drug store hair products…. they ruin your hair with sulfates and other chemicals! Just spend the extra money for a better product& healthy hair
  • Get your dead ends cut every few weeks
  • Brand name drugstore hair products are more expensive than if you were to buy them in the salon
  • DONT FORGET TO USE HEAT PROTECTANT no matter what tool you use! Including your blow dryer!
I threw away ALL of my drugstore hair products.. and I mean everything… I completely restocked my supply with proper healthy hair brands from the salon
Keep your friends close and your stylist friends closer!
