5 New Things I am Trying This Month
Glow Recipe, Origins, Elf, Dr. Jart, And The Balm!
1. ELF BEAUTIFULLY PRECISE MULTI BLENDER MASSAGER $12
This Beautifully Precise Multi Blender Brush by Elf Cosmetics is one of 5 brushes I currently have from The Beautifully Precise Collection. I just washed them this week and can’t wait to try them but I am doing it in phases so I can review each one!! This is the first one on my list!
“The Beautifully Precise Multi Blender Massager No. 102 is a unique, multi-directional curved massager brush that seamlessly sweeps over the facial contours to sculpt, shape, and blend in foundation, powder, or bronzer flawlessly. The custom designed triangular handle provides ultimate control while luxuriously soft, cruelty-free white fiber hairs show exact placement of makeup on the brush for optimal amount of product use for precise and even application.”
2. DR. JART+ Shake & Shot™ Rubber Masks (Firming) $12
I honestly meant to buy the Soothing one at Sephora and when I asked for it the already overburdened Sephora employee (they had a free sheet mask promotion so it was busier than usual) handed me this, which I failed to read. So now I have a firming mask to try which should be fun! Let’s see how I like this rubber mask!!!
“This Rubber Brightening Mask brightens dull skin with vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and sea buckthorn fruit extract, which is rich in vitamins. The result is a more even out skin tone, diminished darkness and a revitalized appaearance. The fun application process lets you shake it up and give skin a brightening boost.
Dr.Jart uses the same “rubber mask” technique found in high-end Korean spas to achieve equivalent high-performance results—without the fuss of mixing a traditional modeling pack. The innovative cream-to-sheet formula penetrates skin more deeply than a sheet mask to deliver high-potency active ingredients. Each freshly-made mask penetrates skin surface to deliver the benefits your skin needs most quickly and effectively.”
3. ORIGINS Dr. Andrew Weil For Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion $32
Thanks to Sephora’s general deluxe sample with a $25 online purchase, I was lucky enough to score 2 bottles of this. It’s supposed to help with a red nose and should be soothing on my reactive AF skin. I already tried a little bit of it but I haven’t introduced into my skin Carrie regime regularly yet but I plan to use it every other day for the month of August and see what happens.
“This light, refreshing treatment lotion, made with reishi mushroom—and now with fermented chaga and coprinus mushrooms—hydrates and soothes for calm, healthy-looking skin. The formula is alcohol-free and pH-balanced.”
4. GLOW RECIPE Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask $8 Glow Recipe Jelly Sheet Mask $8
This is the two apiece jelly mask that keeps popping up everywhere (including my Instagram) and it’s getting good reviews like crazy and although I’ve had mine for about two weeks now I am planning on actually using it tonight. Glow recipe is a great brand and has a few products that are on my must-have list of things I can’t live without. Maybe this will become a new staple? But I only have 2 and I am on a “no buy” for the month of August!! So I must be stingy about using the other one.
“A jelly sheet mask that’s the perfect quick fix to dry, tired skin. “
5. TheBalm Voyage® Vol.2 $38.50
I was lucky enough to pick this up for 50% off at Kohls this past weekend. I LOVE the balm and can’t wait to try this. The small smudges you can see in these photos are ones that I did by accident myself. I bought it in perfect condition. So that 50% sale was really one that was too good to be true. I really do like this brand and am concerned because I keep seeing it less and less. Anyone know what’s up?
