Mask Monday: TONYMOLY Master Lab Hyaluronic Acid Mask Sheet

It’s Mask Monday, so we’re here to try out another mask for you so you don’t have to! Or, you know, you can try them too. Fun for all!

DH offered to try another mask today, so who am I to turn that down?

Today’s mask is the TONYMOLY Master Lab Hyaluronic Acid Mask Sheet.

This mask promises to make skin healthy by “providing hydration and nourishment.” It uses a new “nude seal fabric… to closely adhere to skin and effectively deliver active ingredients to make it healthy.” We’ll see about that!

DH reported that this mask fit his face nicely (as promised!) and smelled nice. He thought it was one of the better masks that he’s tried. His skin felt hydrated and refreshed afterwards.

So there you have it!

Have you tried this mask before? What did you think?

Goodbye Clutter!

Okay, not all the clutter is gone- but I’m working on it! Oh how good it feels to donate to the thrift stores.

Although… it could be said that it’s not an entirely selfless act on my part. I definitely relish that moment when I get to walk away from those bags/boxes packed with things that used to take up precious real estate in my home. It’s an almost giddy feeling.

The more I declutter, the more I feel like I was a hoarder. I didn’t have pathways through our house, but there were issues that were popping up.

Have you ever heard,” A place for everything and everything in its place?” Well, more and more frequently I would find myself trying to clear off the kitchen table or picking up in the living room, and I would realize that I had no idea where to put something. Things were coming into our home at a steady pace, but there wasn’t any available space for them. And nothing was leaving…

Thankfully, that set off some warning bells. And now I am accountable through this declutter challenge. It’s making a difference.

Okay, enough of that.

Mask Monday: Alba Botanica Fast Fix Sheet Mask Grapefruit Even Tone

It’s Mask Monday again, and today we have — surprise, surprise — a mask to try!!

This week’s mask is the Alba Botanica Fast Fix Sheet Mask Grapefruit Even Tone.

This mask promises to “vanish visible pores, soothe redness and lighten shadows, giving skin a soft, even glow.”

This mask felt quite tingly when on — not too much, but the Amazon reviews indicated there could be issues… It smelled nice and felt like it was actually doing something on my face, which is always nice. When I removed the mask, my pores did appear smaller. However, as soon as DH saw me, he said that my face was red and I looked like I was having a reaction to the mask… So that’s fun.

I’m not usually looking for redness and reactions when I try masks, so I may steer clear of this in the future.

Have you ever tried this mask? What did you think?

Declutter Thursday…on a Friday

Spring is a busy time of year. So much to do inside and even more waiting for you outside. I kind of cleaned my fridge out yesterday, but only half way. My toddler was taking a nap while I attempted the job, but woke up and wanted some attention. And the weather was nice. So that was the end of that!

I am quite happy with this week’s box because my DH contributed to it as well. That’s encouraging!
