Mask Monday: Loverecipe AcaiBerry Mask

Today’s mask is the Loverecipe AcaiBerry Mask.


This mask is “infused with acai berry extract for keeping skin radiant and firm.”

The mask went on nicely and fit my face well. There were no annoying flaps over the eyes or anything, so I was happy. There was a good amount of serum, but not too much, which was definitely nice. I hate when the serum is dripping off the mask and getting everywhere. The mask smelled faintly of flowers, and felt cooling while on. I didn’t notice any significant immediate effects from the mask, but my skin did feel a bit tighter, so that’s good, I guess?



Mask Monday: Biobelle #staygorgeous Face Mask

This week we have the Biobelle #staygorgeous Face Mask.

DH of course is a trooper, so he took one for the team this week. We’ve liked Biobelle masks in the past, so I was looking forward to seeing how this one performed. The #staygorgeous mask promises to “hydrate and nourish your skin” using almond oil and vitamin E.

DH reports that the mask smelled really nice and felt pretty good on the face. He thought it was refreshing on the skin, and actually did what it claimed — hydrated and nourished the skin. So far, we’re 2 for 2 with the Biobelle masks!

What is your favorite mask? Do you prefer sheet masks or spread on masks?




Mask Monday: L’Oréal Exfoliate & Refine Red Clay Mask

Up this week for Mask Monday we have the L’ORÉAL Exfoliate & Refine Red Clay Mask.

This mask promises that it “addresses rough and clogged skin to reveal a polished, pore-minimized and smooth complexion.” It’s supposed to make skin appear “refined and smooth” with “visibly minimized” pores. With claims like that, what’s not to love!?

I actually liked this mask pretty well. It had a fairly strong medicinally floral scent, which I kind’ve enjoyed. It definitely tingled quite a bit, which I also liked. Afterward, my skin did look smoother, and my pores appeared a little smaller. So I guess it actually worked! Yay! I love it when things actually do what they’re supposed to!



Mask Monday: Tony Moly Hyaluronic Acid Mask Sheet – Hydrating

Today’s mask is from TonyMoly — the Hyaluronic Acid Mask Sheet – Hydrating.


This mask promises to “provide moisture and nutrition to damaged skin, soothe stressed skin, and give a rich glow to skin.”

DH loves him a nice mask, so he agreed to try it out. 🙂

Apparently it smells nice, even though DH wondered what the little black specks in the mask were (we think they’re cotton fibers). Other than that though, this mask was wholly unmemorable.  As in, DH doesn’t even remember wearing it.  Whoops. Note to self – ask for impressions immediately after using a mask! 

What skin care products do you use? 



Declutter Challenge Update

Have you been eyeing some dusty items and thinking,”Why do I still have this?” Me too!

This week’s box had a little help from DH. Yay! It’s always encouraging when your family joins you in clearing out. Yup.

This week’s box…


What’s in the box?

  • skillet
  • 3 mixing bowls(nesting)
  • cheese grater with attachments
  • spatula
  • canned soda preserver(Weird, I know. I only tried it once…)
  • wine bottle opener
  • plastic food container with lid

21 items. Add that to our running total of 306 and that brings us to 327. Okay. Slow and steady is my pace. Slow and steady wins the race. I’m just going to keep saying that to myself. Eh. 🙂

How are you doing? Are you tackling a project that has been on the back burner for awhile? Great! Feeling overwhelmed by the amount of items you have in your humble abode? Just scroll back…slow and steady. It didn’t happen overnight, and it won’t get cleaned up overnight.:)
