1. This Bubble Mask
I love face masks and when I first heard about bubble masks I knew I wanted to try one! I saw that e.l.f. came out with a hydrating bubble mask it was the perfect time to try it! A bubble mask works pretty similarly to a regular face mask, the only difference is that the formula bubbles up on your face as it’s activated.
For the e.l.f. mask, you just apply a thin layer to damp skin, let it bubble up and sit for a few minutes, rub in, and then rinse off! I’ve used this one now a couple of times and really love it! You can actually feel the bubbles fizzing on your face!
Have you tried this particular mask or another bubble mask? I’d love to hear you thoughts!
2. This (hopefully) faster-drying hair primer
I saw recently that L’Oreal had come out with a primer spray designed to help cut down blow drying time. I LOATHE drying my hair! It feels like it takes an eternity and usually I don’t have the patience to dry it all the way meaning my ends are damp and irritate me so I then twist it back and it dries weird!
I’ll try it out and write a full review next week to see if it actually helped dry my hair faster!
3. This oil cleanser
I have a dilemma I need your help with. Back in October I received a deluxe sample of the Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil in my Ipsy bag. I had never tried a cleansing oil before and didn’t really know what to expect. Turns out, I should have expected to LOVE IT. Unlike a normal skin cleanser that you apply to a wet face and then rinse, you apply this oil to a dry face, massage it into your skin and then rinse it off. My skin has been problem free since I started using it and I love seeing my makeup completely melt away with zero residue when I use it.
Here’s my issue, a full size bottle runs close to $50. Which is about 10X more than I generally pay for a face cleanser. Considering I’m still using the .5oz bottle I received last fall I know it will definitely last a long time (and I use it about six days a week – I use a gentle exfoliator the other day). Should I go ahead and buy it? Or see if there’s another cleansing oil I might like just as well that is cheaper? Any thoughts??
