Product Review + This Week In Pics

Happy Friday lovers!  I wanted to tell you about this amazing new face mask that I found at Sephora.  Its called When Essence Mask - TravelMate.  I first found it last month when I was picking up last minute items for Italy.  Sephora had it strategically placed in that aisle; the one before you get to the register to pay with all those cute mini sampler items (that call out your name) and you somehow know what I'm talking about!  The packaging was pink and pretty and said "travel" on it.  I was sold.  My skin tends to get really dry on long distance flights so I always like to use a face mask of some sort either pre-flight or after for extra hydration.  

I gave it a go when we arrived in Italy.  Its super easy to use; simply open up the pouch, peel apart the different paper layers, and place onto your cleansed skin.  My initial thoughts were:

  • "Wow, I look totally creepy!".....the mask is designed with cut outs for your eyes, nose, and mouth so you kind of look like that psycho guy wearing the skin mask in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  I actually terrified my friend Jenn while I was creeping around our villa in Italy while wearing the mask....long story.
  • The mask feels like heaven!  Its cooling, hydrating, and feels simply delicious on your skin!  
  • It is extremely similar to the pricey SK-II brand (for fractions of the price).

You're supposed to leave the mask on for 20-30 minutes, but I left mine on for close to an hour.  Once you remove it, you just massage any remaining product into your skin.  I also massaged it into my neck & chest area, and also onto the backs of my hands.  Afterwards my skin felt refreshed, uber hydrated, and was literally glowing.  No weird reactions of any sort.

The mask is made from coconut juice

I went back to Sephora, and purchased the full package which contains 4 face masks for $28.  Adam & I both used the mask after our flights to Africa last week.  It was a skin saver after that 18+  hour flight!  Same results; glowing, hydrated skin.  I couldn't be happier with the product, and I had to share this with you girls!

Now onto my piccys.  I don't have a whole lot to show you as we just arrived back on Monday night.  I've been playing catch up all week and I'll have some great recipes that I'll be posting soon!

He was so happy to have us home!
