Even though I haven’t blogged in months, I’m going to jump right back in like I never left. That’s how I roll and hopefully my fellow bloggers can understand that a girl just needs a break every now and then. Trust me, I’ve still been buying product, testing product and even developing new routines.
One in particular that has been my religion is face masking. Now, I’ve always been a fan of face masks and I would do one when I decided to give myself facials, but for the past few months I’ve developed a routine that takes way more time, but is so satisfying! I’ve made a promise to myself to do masks twice a week. I now do a mask every Wednesday and Sunday. Like clockwork.
The Wednesday mask is one that I’ve used forever to control oil. I don’t test any new masks that day. That day is reserved for the mask that works and has worked for years. Sometimes I follow with a sheet mask to bring back some hydration.
The Sunday routine consists of 3 masks back to back. I do one to clarify, one treatment mask and one to moisturize. This is the day that I sample new masks so this routine never stays consistent when it comes to product. I leave each on for about 15 minutes and relax. It’s amazing. Although it seems like a lot of product the final result is amazing and makes me anxious to do it again next week. I’m going to make a list below of all the products I use on each day. Some vary because I’m always getting new product to test in my beauty boxes! Do you have any routines you stick to? What are they?
Before masking I wash my face twice. Once with my everyday cleanser (I’ve been loving this one lately) and again with Noxema. I then exfoliate with the current scrub I’m using. If you are new to exfoliating and don’t have sensitive skin, I recommend this one. It’s great! I pat my face dry with a clean towel and start the process.
