BEAUTY REVIEW: Beauty 360 Oatmeal & Avocado Face Mask

Stress is wreaking all sorts of havoc on my skin. I’ve been fortunate enough in my 36 years on planet earth to not suffer from any sort of acne, pimples or breakouts and I’ll be got damned if I start now. I’ve been in the market for some sort of mask that will help detoxify and jumpstart operation fresh face and after doing some online research I’m really tempted to try that new mask called Glam Glow but as quickly as I talk myself into trying it I think about the amount of groceries I can get with the cost of Glam Glow (I’ve seen it retail from $50-$70) and well let’s just say I ain’t about that life. I’ve even found a couple of diy facials that interest me but they call for ingredients I’m not really interested in searching high and low for.

While shopping in CVS today this sample mask caught my eye. I was intrigued mostly because I don’t have to invest in a whole tub of it only to try it and not like it and also because it features ingredients I was researching in the diy recipes. Oatmeal to help heal blemishes and damaged skin and avocado to deep clean and moisturize my skin and the clay of course that gets deep down in the pores and also gives your face a mini lift.

The package didn’t say how long to keep the mask on but I planned to leave it on for 30 minutes while I finished up on housework. The packaging was easy to open and not messy at all and the mask was super easy to apply. When I applied there was a couple of minutes of tingling that at first made me nervous but then it stopped so I took it as being a sign that it was working. Of course I took advantage of the mask and walked around the house attempting to scare babygirl, epic fail, she didn’t blink. Mr. Grumps on the other hand got the living bejesus scared out of him. The timing didn’t go down as planned and I ended up falling asleep for a couple hours.

Fast forward to the unveiling, the mask washed off with crazy ease which I appreciate, I’ve tried masks that you basically have to rub your skin damn near raw to get off so that’s a plus. My skin looked a little brighter and it didn’t sting which is a big deal for me because my skin is super sensitive. MOST importantly since I got my nose pierced a couple of months back I have to be very gentle and careful not to disrupt the piercing when I wash my face, so I haven’t been able to scrub the way I like to which has caused a serious black head issue on my nose. I tried the garnier blackhead face wash with charcoal and the nivea blackhead face wash and let’s just say both have since been added to my pile of “shit that doesn’t work” but this mask singlehandedly and wholeheartedly tackled my blackhead issue and it is no more, like gone, like blackhead who, gone. No scrubbing necessary. I realized now that I should have taken before and after pictures. I will update a little later.

So if you were to ask me if I’d try Beauty 360 Oatmeal & Avocado Face Mask again, I’d say hell yeah. If you asked me if I would refer or suggest it to a friend, I’d say I think I already have.

Until next time lovies.

Don’t worry….I got this!

Ka’oir Cosmetics

New lippy alert!

Video vixen Keyshia Kaoir has a new cosmetics line out called Ka’oir.  It’s full of fun colored lipsticks and glitter, eyeshadows and nail polishes.  When I say fun colored I mean yellow, blue, green and purple lipsticks along with more conservative colors like red, pink and nude.  Celebrities like Teyana Taylor, Snooki and Trina have their own signature colors which is pretty cool.

Back on Easter Sunday I ordered Truly Outrageous which is a neon pink and Capricorn that is more of a peachy color:

I was just too excited for my new lippies to arrive because the colors are just too much fun and perfect for spring/summer.  Well FINALLY they arrived this past Monday.  Yes you read right, I ordered them Easter sunday which was March 31st and they did not arrive until April 22nd.  When ordering there are 2 shipping options Option #1. 1 day delivery for an extra $27.  Option #2. 5-7 day delivery for an extra $3.99.  So if the 5-7 day delivery actually took 22 days (16 business days to be fair) I definitely would not recommend the 1 day delivery because that may take 2 weeks.  I was really frustrated during the whole shipment process because let’s be honest nothing takes that long to arrive nowadays, I’ve ordered phone cases from Hong Kong on amazon.com and didn’t have to wait this long.  The only saving graces are that I absolutely love the colors, they’re just the pop needed and unlike alot of matte lipsticks that I own that make my lips feel really dry this lipstick is very  moisturizing and makes my lips feel pretty amazing.

If it weren’t for the whole shipping debacle I would have giving Ka’oir cosmetics 5 stars for the fun colors and the moisturizing feel of the lipsticks.  But due to the unreasonable price ($27) for one day delivery that I’m pretty sure won’t actually be one day and the length of time 5-7 day delivery took I have to give them 3 and a quarter star.  Hopefully the line will be sold in stores soon and then us instant gratification girls will be satisfied. 

Here I am with both colors (please excuse the bathroom selfies but babygirl wouldn’t let me put my face on at home so I had to do it at work).
