Sunday Beauty Zen 12.13.2015

Today is my mom’s birthday, whom I adore.   She is an amazing woman and I hope that I can have her positive outlook on life when life hands me adversities.    Happy Birthday Mom!

Today’s Zen is in honor of my mom, because she is a fabulous cook and made the most amazing food for our family, and her desserts were no exception.  My love of plum pie is her fault ~ haha ~ and sweets made with brown sugar and rice pudding with raisins and cinnamon ~ yum!

These are so funny!! @beautyandthecat on IG gave me a heads up that these are pretty much a 5 minute mask, not full of essence and she was right! These come in a tub like baby wipes and the 100% Japanese cotton mask is not the smoothest mask ever, nor is it a good fit – these are made for long narrow faces ~ of which I do not have! The chin area could be tucked UNDER my chin and the nose was so long, whereas the sides of my face were not covered. Nothing like the illustration on the pack of the tub, where the mask is nice and round. One of the most ill fitting masks….YET I LOVED THESE. Why? Let me tell you why. First off, the scent ~ it is a lemon-grapefruit scent, just so pleasant and refreshing. My face was noticeably brighter after wearing these and even though they didn’t cover my face completely, they did get the important areas ~ forehead, most of my cheeks, nose, chin (and then some).

Also, I have been sick with the flu since last friday and was bedridden for most of this time (up until yesterday). I used my Benton Honest TT Facial Mist to keep my face hydrated and oil free, and then these I would slap on when I needed a quick refreshing facial. They felt so good on my face and this handy tub was next to my box of Kleenex! Very convenient, didn’t have to worry about opening a package, just flip back the top of the tub and grab a handy-facial-wipe..err mask! 5 minutes and it is off! I can see this being very popular when traveling too – just pack the tub – it has 20 masks – and you are all set – if you camp, take the plane, train, long car rides ~ really handy. I just wish the fit was better, but it really helped me keep up with my skin care while I was sick! These are double infused with vitamin C & E too.  Where to Buy:  Amazon eBay
