Review: Shray Ms. Amazing Face Mask from Feb. Boxycharm

Review: Shray Ms. Amazing Face Mask from Feb. Boxycharm

So I’m in love with the packaging on this product.. It’s seriously adorable.   

  
Putting this mask on is a bit strange, but I have to be honest I usually am not a fan of paper masks. I’m more of a brush-on kind of girl. With that being said this mask in an exception. Usually I don’t feel like I’m getting enough coverage from face masks, but this one felt (and kind of looked,) like a second skin once I had it on, and I’m really a fan. 

  
Excuse my face, I have a sick baby so I haven’t worn makeup in like a week, but look at this mask.! It seriously clings to your skin and feels like a regular mud mask which is so strange to me. It’s not like anything else I’ve ever tried.

When you take this mask off you aren’t supposed to rinse your face, I don’t know if that’s how all paper masks are, I haven’t used one in years, like I said I’m not really a fan of paper. I didn’t exfoliate my face this morning or last night because I wanted to see how the mask does on its own. After removing the paper and rubbing the leftover product into my skin I was left with fresh, moisturized, and dewy skin. It was very gentle on my sensitive skin with no burning at all, just a cool feeling while it was on. I feel like I could use this mask before makeup by itself with no problem on the days I don’t want to exfoliate and moisturize, and want a one step solution to my always-dry skin. 

Overall I think this is a really unique brand from packaging to product and I look forward to trying other things from them.!

Boxycharm; January + February

So I’ve been getting ipsy for about a year now and I kind of feel like I’ve grown out of it a bit. Don’t get me wrong I love ipsy, but it was time to try new things.

Boxycharm.

For 21$ a month you get 4-5 FULL SIZE items. Yes, full size items.! What better way to try new products and find what you love.

  
This is the January box, I just got around to opening it. The theme of this box was “Eyes on 2016.”

  
This is the February box which has the the theme “Rush to Relax”

I’m so impressed with this subscription box, the packaging is simple and adorable, much more chic than ipsy in my opinion. Some of the brands are familiar to me and others are new ones that I’m excited to try. 

I can’t wait to test these products and review the ones I love for you guys. Hopefully once I’ve got my life together a little better and am not so busy, (haha,) I’ll start making monthly unboxing posts with reviews. 

I’m super excited about this.! If you have never done a subscription box or have been struggling to decide which one to use I would 100% reccomend this one and I’m only on month two.! I can’t wait to see what the rest of this year has in store.

Review: Perfectly Posh Kale Face Mask

I currently have this mask on my face, but I haven’t been blogging the past few days so I’m dying to start this post.

I want to start this review off by saying I do not sell Posh nor do I plan to anytime in the future. My hope is to try a lot of these products and let you know what’s worth it and what I wouldn’t necessarily reccomend. My sister in law is hosting a posh party online starting tomorrow that you can find here.! I was very reluctant to try Posh products as I often feel things like this are a little oversold by consultants, but I have to say I’ve been very impressed with this brand and I’ve now made two big purchases from their website. I want to give completely unbiased opinions on the products I try.

First of all this mask smells  amazing. It’s made with kale (obviously) and other greens. It’s probably one of my favorite smelling masks so far. It goes on very cool and refreshing, spreads easily, and a little goes a long way.

It dries really well with no flaking, and as you guys know I have horribly sensitive skin, but this mask didn’t irritate it at all.

  

So I just went and rinsed this mask off and I have to say I really like it. It rinses off really REALLY easily even though I applied a pretty thick layer of it which is something I try to find in masks. I hate spending 20 minutes trying to wash my face off. I always use these super cheap face sponges from cvs. They’re my favorite and budget friendly.

All in all I think this mask would be great for anyone with sensitive skin, not to mention it worked great on my dry skin and left me feeling fresh AND moisturized which I wasn’t expecting. So far I have loved the posh masks I’ve tried, and for less than half the price of masks you can find at Sephora I really think they’re worth the $18. Find it here.

 

Review: Perfectly Posh Drop Dead Gorgeous Mask

I’m not normally one to try things with that are sold by individuals, simply because I feel like the person selling them is usually biased. However my soon to be sister in law is now selling Perfectly Posh and was raving to me about the things she had tried so far and I thought it would be fun to try a few products and give you guys an unbiased opinion on them. The first thing I tried was their Drop Dead Gorgeous Mask.

  

When I first open this mask the first thing I notice is the smell, it’s very earthy. Obviously because it’s a mud mask but you can immediately smell the mud, (not in a bad way.!) and a slight lemony smell.. It’s really nice and fresh. The consistency of this mask is really soft and smooth, I’m really a fan.

  
It applies so easily.! I loved how well it spread on my face. If you have really really sensitive skin I wouldn’t reccomend this mask because it does burn a bit in the beginning. I have pretty sensitive skin, but I’m weird I don’t mind products that burn a bit, I actually prefer strong products because I get that DEEP clean feeling that I love. I left it on for about 7 minutes because I was watching my hubby edit my YouTube video.. If you haven’t checked that out yet you should.! You can find my new YouTube channel here. Anyways back on track, when I went to wash it off I was surprised at how easily it came off. Didn’t have to work too hard, or scrub it off, just used a warm washcloth, so that aspect is very gentle on the skin. As I was patting my face dry I could already tell my skin felt great. I went to bed without a moisturizer last night which with my super dry skin that’s something I never do, but I wanted to really see how this mask would do. I did the mask around ten last night and it’s almost noon now and my skin still feels pretty great sans moisturizer. 

You can find this mask here for $18

Is it worth almost 20$.? I’m not sure yet. It depends on how much use I can get out of it, but I’m EXTREMELY impressed with my initial impression of it and look forward to using it again soon and seeing if I continue to like it. I also can’t wait to try more masks (and other products) from this brand, so I can tell you guys without bias what’s good from this brand.! If you’ve tried anything from Perfectly Posh (and aren’t a salesperson for them) what have you tried.? What do you like.? Comment and let me know.!
