Feel Beauty Harmony Rose Petal Face Mask

It feels like it’s been a while since I reviewed a face mask! I looked through my samples and found one that looked interesting: the Feel Beauty Harmony Rose Petal Face Mask. This product retails online for $55.

This is a really nice gel face mask. It is rose-scented, and the scent seems super natural and not at all artificial. The gel has a great cooling sensation on the skin and works to gently moisturize the skin. This is a great, vegan, moisturizing mask that reminded me a lot of the Fresh Rose Face Mask. Overall, this is a fun mask for a spa day. It smells great and adds a boost of moisture. However, I don’t think I’ll be purchasing the full-size when this sample is up. There are so many cheaper rose mask options that seem to work just as well.

What is your favorite face mask scent? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Thanks for reading!

Sephora Algae Face Mask 

I do think that the perfect way to wind down after a stressful day is a bubble mask and a face mask. There’s something calming about both of these things. I recently have tried a lot of sheet masks, and one I was excited to try was the Sephora Algae Face Mask.

The goal of this face mask is to purify and detoxify the skin with algae. It can be purchased from Sephora for $6, which is an average price for a one-time-use sheet mask.

I think that if your goal is to just relax and unwind, this is a nice face mask option. It’s inexpensive enough to not make you feel guilty, but the act of putting on the sheet mask and unwinding can still make you feel pampered. However, if your goal is to actually purify and detoxify your skin, this isn’t your best bet. I’ve yet to use a Sephora brand sheet mask that did a whole lot for my skin besides possibly making it feel a teeny bit more moisturized.

So, essentially, I think this product is a fun addition for an at-home spa day, but it’s certainly not going to become a staple in anyone’s skincare routine. If you’re looking for actual skincare results, I would suggest the brands SK-II or Dr. Jart + instead.

Fizz & Bubble Truffles 

Last week, I blogged about the Fizz & Bubble Bath Milkshake, which is a great economical choice, but this week, I wanted to share another more luxurious option from the company: Fizz & Bubble Truffles.

The nine pack of truffles is only $20, which is still pretty good for a fun bath product. Plus, just look how cute they are! This is the perfect sample pack as well because it has nine of Fizz & Bubbles scents. If you like one (or more) of them, Fizz & Bubble has whole ranges devoted to most of the scents which includes shower gels, bath cupcakes, and large bath fizzies.

You’ll want to put just one in each bath. They are certainly large enough for a bath, although they are smaller in comparison to other bath bomb products on the market (but this is, after all, a sample pack). The scents are great. They are strong enough to make the bath smell nice without feeling overpowering.

As with most bath products, however, I did not find that they had any moisturization value, despite marketing claims. You’ll definitely still need to follow up your bath with a nice lotion. Still, I think these are a really fun product, and they would make a lovely gift as well because of the packaging!

Health Hack: Spa Water

My boyfriend Josh is always getting on my case about drinking water. As much as I resist admitting that he is right, it is true that hydration is really important for both health and beauty. I know that when I drink a lot of water, I can tell that I’m getting many benefits, such as: fewer headaches, more radiant skin, less hunger, less fatigue. The problem is …

I HATE THE TASTE OF WATER! It’s just so boring.

For a while, I tried to trick myself into drinking water by putting lots of crystal light (and other similar products from other brands) into my water. I have a really sensitive stomach and the artificial sugar just didn’t sit well with me. I noticed that I would feel slightly queasy for an hour or so every time I drank a glass. This is not only irritating but also a bit worrying. So, in order to get the fruity flavor without the artificial sugar, I decided to make my own spa water! Spas often have really refreshing pitchers of water mixed with chunks of some sort of fruit or veggies. I wondered if it would be worth the effort to do this myself (I know it’s not actually difficult to cut up fruit and toss it in water, so you may be wondering about my use of the word “effort” right about now. Let me assure you, I can be very lazy when it comes to  my health, hence why I’ve used the free gym at my apartment complex a grand total of one time).

I’ve been really enjoying this experiment! I feel a lot better sipping the spa water throughout my day at work instead of multiple cups of coffee. I especially appreciate having clearer skin and fewer headaches. My two favorite blends to put in the water bottle are lime with raspberries and grapefruit with cucumber. For a thriftier option, you could also use frozen fruit and then the water will stay chilled longer as well. The only downside? I have to pee more often which is sometimes inconvenient.
