Facial Cleansing Wipes Reviews: Battle of the Brands

Ever wonder what the best facial cleansing wipes are? Do you find yourself searching online for reviews of different products and wish you could just find a friend who had tried a whole bunch of products that could compare them all of you? Well, you are in luck because I am going to be THAT friend for you! I am SO excited to announce a new series I am bringing you… Battle of the Brands! I will be coming once a month with a category and will be testing several brands of that product. Some of them you can look forward to seeing in the future include drugstore foundation, mascara, long wear lipstick, and concealer. To kick things off, I tested facial cleansing wipes!

So, how does it work? I came up with my own little scoring system to grade each of the facial cleansing wipes on more than me just saying, “This one was good” or “This one was no good”. I tested [Read more…]

Getting Gorgeous Skin While I Sleep

I have a crazy schedule. Between being a mom, a wife, a blogger, and having various church responsibilities, I find myself getting very little sleep which leaves my skin looking very tired after a while. I recently just tried Montagne Juenesse Renew You Sleep Spa masks and I have seen a HUGE difference!

Renew You Pure Oils Sleep Spa

I didn’t have the highest expectations before trying these because I just didn’t think that adding that many nutrients to my skin would be that simple!

Before I tried the sleep mask, I looked tired and my skin was very dry.

After one night of using the sleep mask, my after photo isn’t just fantastically different, it is now an ahhhhhfter photo!

After using Renew You Mask

Mind freaking blown! It is amazing what just one night using these sleep masks can do, even without any makeup! I think it is so important to have healthy skin that can shine through the makeup when you do wear it.

The sleep mask is really easy to use. You just put the fabric mask that is soaked in nutrients on your face and let it sit for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes is up, take the fabric mask off and rub the extra product into your skin and let it sit on your face all night long as you sleep. The natural ingredients work overnight to give you gorgeous skin! It works like nothing else I have ever tried. You can find the Montagne Jeunesse Renew You Sleep Spa Masks at Ulta. The box comes with 4 masks and retails for only $14.99! Best deal ever, right? With the added hydration, toning abilities, and the ability to remove impurities you have no reason why you shouldn’t try it! There is nothing better than having healthy, beautiful skin to show off.

What kinds of skin troubles do you have that could be solved by using the Montagne Jeunesse Renew You Sleep Spa Masks?

My skin routine has changed several times in my life and I am sure it will continue to evolve as I develop my knowledge of all things beauty and skincare, but I can honestly say that I love how my skin has been looking lately. Because of that, I want to share my skin routine with you. Maybe all of these products will be perfect for you and maybe none of them will be, but here is the beauty of my skin care routine. It is affordable! If I can find an inexpensive product that works well, I am not going to keep looking for a fancier product that would do the same thing. I am a cheapo! So with that being said, yes there are probably better products out there than the ones that I use. BUT for the price I am paying for my current skin routine, I am happy with the results!

Homemade All Natural Face Mask

I have weird skin. In professional terms, it is referred to as “combination skin”, but let’s be real honest and say that it is just weird. One minute I have sad dry skin. The next minute I have oily acne prone skin. The third minute (which is actually more like 10 seconds) I have nice baby smooth skin. That third minute (10 seconds) usually comes after I have treated my skin with something special, like a face mask. I always love the way my skin feels after I put a face mask on. My problem is remembering to use them! I try to come up with a mental schedule of when I need to use a face mask so that my face doesn’t have to suffer for so long in between treatments. My favorite face masks to use are homemade ones because I know exactly what I am putting on my skin. I like to know why I am putting each ingredient on there too so that if I have a certain problem with my skin, I can know what ingredient I need more or less of. I am going to share with you one of my favorite homemade face masks today!

Homemade All Natural Face Mask Recipe on www.girllovesglam.com

In this face mask, I use oatmeal, honey, coconut oil, and lemon juice. If you really wanted to, you could put this face mask on your face and then eat it all. I don’t recommend it though… we might think you are weird. Here is why I use each of these ingredients.

Oatmeal- Oatmeal adds moisture to your skin and gives it a healthy glow.

Honey- Honey is also a great way to add moisture to your skin and brings out the gorgeous glow in your skin.

Coconut oil- Coconut oil is a natural conditioner. It helps get the moisture really deep into your skin.

Lemon juice- Lemon juice will help get rid of impurities and close your pores to help make your skin look nice and smooth.

Now to make your own face mask.

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup oatmeal
  • ½ Tbsp honey
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • lemon juice from one lemon
Instructions
  1. Put ingredients in bowl and mix together with a hand mixer.

This recipe makes enough for about 3-5 facials. Put it on your face after you wash your face and let it sit for a few minutes. Keep it away from your eyes. The lemon juice can really hurt if it gets in your eyes! Wash it off of your face and your skin will feel fantastic!
