Checking In: Korres as well as roam appeal Masks, a pressed Powder by bareMinerals as well as an Upcoming Haircut!
Vendredi soir dernier!
Question for ya: do you understand what constitutes a truly great time at night for me these days (please, for the like of cats, keep your mind out of the gutter, LOL!).
Answer: A double mask session, informally understood around these parts as “a double mask sesh.”
The double mask sesh
Um…before you go believing that I layered an N95 under my Caraa mask before hitting the club, enable me to clarify. When I state double masking, in this case….I’m referring to utilizing two type of skin care deal with masks — the kind you slather onto your skin! – l’un après l’autre.
MEC. only during post-pandemic times can you state something like that out loud, LOL!
I did this last Friday, as well as it was the TLC I didn’t recognize I desperately needed.

Why do two deal with masks (again, not in recommendation to the pandemic)? I like to believe of it as treating my skin to a double dose of whatever it wants or needs at any type of provided moment, as well as last Friday I desired exfoliation as well as moisture!
I started with Korres Triple Dose Resurfacing Mask, an exfoliating mask packed with AHAs, BHAs as well as pomegranate enzymes, which has a somewhat grainy structure for those who like a bit bit of physical exfoliation action.

Leave it on for three to five minutes (on my combo skin it felt satisfyingly tingly), as well as then rinse off.
I like extremely gentle physical exfoliation, so I carefully push the grains around with my fingers when I increase the product away with water.
As for the scent? DIVIN. like a best marriage of fruit punch as well as roses.
After dabbing my skin with a soft towel, I used a thick layer of prolonged stay Hydrating Mask by roam appeal for an additional mega dose of moisture.

Unfortunately, this specific moisturizing mask is no longer offered from the line, as well as it seems they’ve replaced it with Staycation Hydrating Mask. Really, though, any type of respectable hydrating mask will do.
Any time you can treat yourself to an exfoliating mask complied with by a hydrating mask is a guaranteed great time, particularly on a Friday night. And, of course, it’s absolutely even much better if you’re hanging out with someone… My Friday night date was Rosie, as well as I did all of this double concealing while we hung out on the couch, LOL!
Pressed powder power
This one’s for my people available who like a pressed powder! I’ve been utilizing this pressed translucent powder by bareMinerals on my oilier-than-normal forehead (summer skin, am I right?), as well as it truly keeps the radiate under wraps. It likewise doesn’t look heavy or powdery.
Added bonus? I can’t feel it sitting on my skin. Granted, I don’t mind a bit dewiness on my face, however I draw the line at a hella greasy forehead, which is what occurs when it’s hot outside like it has been lately.
(The powder likewise is available in a lot of other colors if translucent isn’t your thing.)
One last thing before I jump into this two-part cardio workout with additional vigor…
Get prepared to sweat
And sweat some more
I just booked a hair visit for next month, my very first one considering that last February! I’ve still got time before the visit to choose exactly how short I’m going to go, however I’m believing I may do something that just grazes my shoulders…on the possibility that whatever shuts down once again this autumn or wintertime ( Je t’en prie, non!!!).
Anybody else anxious about the new variants? All I can believe of is exactly how dire whatever felt last January, when I was at my loneliest. Can’t believe about it now…
I’m going back to the exact same gal who did my hair last time, Ariana Benoit, because, among other reasons, I truly like exactly how her cut from February has grown out.
Which leads me to an old idea a stylist buddy passed onto me years back — when booking a hair appointment, get hold of the very first one of the day, if you can. That method your stylist friend is fresh out the entrance as well as prepared to go!
Bien. going to go get my sweat on. Talk soon, yeah?
