How to Get Glowing Skin On a Budget

E.L.F Cosmetic’s Hydrating Bubble Mask Review

Hey lovelies!

Last week was my paycheck to splurge so I was in need of a decent, yet affordable mask.  I was walking around Target checking out the Elf Cosmetics Section, and I had found their Hydrating Bubble Mask and decided to give it a try.

I like to do a bubble mask every other night to keep my skin in tip top shape, I also NEVER allow myself to go to sleep with make up on.

Let’s get glowing!

Packaging:

Let me start by saying I am absolutely in love with this packaging!  It comes in a 1.69 oz/ 50 g plastic container.  The container is rather sturdy and comes with a pump release.  I love the color of the packaging as well it is a bluish-green color and it reminds of something you would see at a spa club, or getaway.

Product:

I am obsessed with this mask!  You can use it daily or a few times a week, which ever you would like!  How it works it you press down on the pump twice and apply a thin layer of product.  Wait 5 to 10 minutes for mask to completely dry, while it dries it creates a bubbly, fizzy sensation that you can feel and hear, I think it’s pretty nifty!    I can feel the stress literally fizz away!

Once the product has dried, rinse off all product with warm water, and pat your face dry with a towel.  Finish off by using your daily moisturizer.

Honestly I am blown away by how baby soft, and glowing my skin is after using this mask it is definitely something I will be purchasing a lot of!

Cost: 

I found the hydrating bubble mask by ELF Cosmetics at Target for $14.00.  I usually cringe at stuff like this but a bottle can last 1 to two months for me, and in reality, its cutting me off of eating out so I can’t complain!  I feel the 14 dollar price tag is a very reasonable price!

Preparing For Harsh Conditions

Train Your Skin For Winter(Combination Skin)!

Summer has moved away, and Fall has just found a new home elsewhere, which means Winter is moving in!  Prepare for total domination of Winter skin!

If you are anything like me, I have the worst of both worlds when it comes to my skin.  I am not only sensitive, and many store items cause me to burn,flake, or itch, but I also have the burden of acne prone skin(yikes!).  Luckily this article is for us, the difficult skin type, to finally  find vacation for our skin all winter long!

1. Cleanse 

The first crucial step, of any skin care routine, is to clean your skin of dirt and oils that may be trapped in your pores!  I personally suggest cleansing your skin the first thing when you wake up( your skin absorbs toxins while you sleep, eww!), as well as before bedtime.

IMPORTANT TIP: Be careful that your cleanser is not foamy, as foam cleanses tend to strip the skin of excess oils!  Instead, use a hydrating, creamy, cleanser as it tends to be more gentle on skin.

Suggestion: Best Face Forever by Perfectly Posh

This cleanser is cruelty free, and for it’s price, it lasts you at least 6 months! You only use a pea size amount. While, I typically say avoid exfoliating scrubs, this one is made from Shea Butter micro beads, which also means this cleanser can help hydrate skin, and provide a creamy cleanser base!

2. Moisturize

Step two, is to moisturize, as to helps to keep the skin hydrated, and retain it’s elasticity. .Skincare experts suggest using a richer, heavier, option instead of a lighter weight one that would be appropriate for Summer

IMPORTANT TIP:  When choosing your skin barrier, it is best to select something that contains hyaluronic acid or glycerin. 

My Suggested Moisturizer:

I love this moisturizer because it is Aloe Vera based, which means it tends to be less irritating for skin.  I tend to use a moisturizer about 3- 5 times a week, I cannot over use it every single day because my skin tends to be sensitive.

3. Night Treatment

My secret to gorgeous, glowy, skin in the morning its a hydrating face mask that also detoxifies!  I use a detox mask, about 2 to 3 times per week as it helps purge deep down where fingers and brushes cannot always reach!

My Weapon of Choice:

Meet Whole Lava Love, this is an exfoliant, but it is so gentle I use this as a mask, I leave it on for about 10 minutes and then wash it off, revealing, gorgeous soft skin! I suggest only using this 2 to 3 times I week, I like to use it on Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday nights.

I got a whole lava love for you!

Keep that skin clean, well hydrated, and don’t forget to detox all winter long, and you will be well trained for harsh weather!

Bright Blessings!
