My Top Five Face Masks

“Skincare is not superficial because it is healthcare. When you have beautiful skin, it is a sign that you have a healthy body and mind.”

– Dr. Murad

I will forever and always shout from the mountaintops my love for skincare! It’s seriously very healthy for you to treat your skin well. You may think it takes way too much time or that “it’s only for those crazy beauty YouTubers.” SO not true though! Everyone should establish a skincare routine to keep their skin looking fabulous.

One of my favorite skincare products is face masks. Because who doesn’t love unwinding at the end of a long day with a face mask? I decided to collab with two of my favorite bloggers for our top five favorite face masks! You can find links to their blog posts at the bottom of this post.

Sephora Pineapple Sheet Mask

So quick confession: I don’t love pineapple. I do love the scent but not a fan of the flavor. I know I must be crazy or something! But I gotta say this face mask has been a go to of mine since it came out. If you want to minimize your pores and smooth out fine lines, this face mask is definitely for you. Plus the pineapple scent is divine. It’s especially perfect for summer!

Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask

I will never NOT talk about this face mask because it is that amazing! I discovered this baby last year and have been addicted ever since. I’m loving it for summer because it cools off your face, which is all you really need on a hot day. This is another great mask if you want smaller pores because the cooling effect shrinks those pores right up!

Sephora Green Tea Sheet Mask

Another amazing sheet mask from Sephora! I love this one for blemishes and acne. I don’t get a ton of acne but when I do, I need it gone ASAP. This face mask will take care of those pesky pimples in a flash and help hide any other blemishes you may have. Plus the green tea extract is super relaxing after a long day and will make you feel so refreshed.

Summer Fridays R+R Face Mask

For the longest time, I’ve been DYING to try Summer Fridays and I’m so glad this is my first face mask from them. Ladies with dry skin will adore this exfoliating mask because it really buffs your skin and makes it softer than you could ever imagine. It’s also rose scented (umm HELL YES) and it does a great job of brightening your skin. Sign me TF up!

Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask

Wanna feel like a goddess? This face mask will definitely give you those vibes! It’s a gorgeous lavender-colored mask that makes your skin look and feel absolutely radiant. If you have dull or uneven skin, say goodbye to that when you wear this mask. You will be glowing SO damn much after wearing this even just one time!

Don’t forget to go check out my girlfriends’ blog posts and subscribe. Seriously…you will love these two ladies!

Summer Skincare: Get Ready for the Heat

“Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle.”

– Erno Lazlo

You guys summer is almost here and I could not be more excited! The weather is finally (fairly) warm and I’m ready to put all my sweaters and winter coats away for a long time.

Now that the weather is heating up, it’s SO important to make sure your skin is ready to handle the heat. No matter what skin type you are, make sure you find the right products that will have glowing all summer long. Here are some of my favorite summer skincare products that I’ll be using this year!

Lancome Rose Sugar Scrub

Time to exfoliate that skin! This face scrub from Lancome is my favorite ever because it smells like a bouquet of roses AND it’s not too harsh on my skin. If you have sensitive skin, you’ll love this scrub. Plus my skin always feels squeaky clean after I use this…it really does the job well!

Mario Badescu Facial Spray w/ Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender

By far one of the best toners out there! I use this one year round but I especially love the lavender scent for summer. It’s so refreshing, does a great job of brightening my skin and if you have any redness, this toner will be your new BFF. I also love the rose toner but I usually go for this one. Definitely a must have summer skincare product!

Bath & Body Works Pretty as a Peach Body Lotion

I love BBW! I’ve been addicted to all their products since the vintage scents were a thing (anyone remember Art Stuff? I was obsessed as a kid). This peach lotion is one of my favorite scents for summer. It’s a very fruity scent that I’ve been wearing nonstop. And of course, it keeps my skin extra hydrated in the heat!

St Tropez Self Tan Express Bronzing Face Mask

Ok I’ve been looking for ways to tan my face for YEARS. My face always ends up being ghostly while the rest of my body gets hella tan (literally my life every damn summer). This mask is a great addition to your summer skincare routine because it helps tan your face to however dark you want (leave on for 5 minutes for a light tan, 15 minutes for a darker tan). So amazing!
