Rose Gold iPhone 7¬†– Unfortunately I dropped my phone right after the holidays and, while I thought the thing was indestructible, it ended up not working after it took it’s last hit. That meant I needed an upgrade. Shucks ūüôā . This is literally the best phone I’ve ever had! I love the size, color, and quality.¬†It’s perfect for me.

Clear Mandala Phone Case¬†– So of course I had to get something pretty to keep this one safe. I opted for a clear, mandala-patterned back case so that the pink could shine through. I paired it with a clear screen protector and now I’m all set!

Moleskine 2017 Weekly Planner РThis baby has been keeping me organized already. I love the layout of this planner because it includes daily, weekly, and monthly layouts. I set a lot of different types of goals this year and think the process of tracking everything in this planner will help me stick to them.

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss¬†– I’m not sure why, but this lippie in the shade “Birthday Babe” has been on repeat for me in January because I’m more comfortable with a color on my lips, but this has been an easy transition into neutrals for me. It’s a great winter shade and a comfortable wear.

Real Techniques Blush Brush¬†– You need this brush!!! The size, hands down, is my favorite part. I didn’t realize the pain I was putting myself through with smaller blush brushes until I got this baby and having been seriously loving it.

Clean and Clear Shower Mask¬†– I got this in a recent Walmart Beauty Box¬†as a sample and liked it so much that I purchased the full sized version. This works nicely for me in the shower after I do a deep face exfoliation. It’s a nice way to get moisture back into the skin and fully cleanse the surface of your face.

Freeman Masks Review

I love these masks!!! First of all, they are¬†very affordable at around $5 apiece. Second, they are¬†sold in sample sizes, which is perfect for a girl’s night in, traveling, or to just try a few out if you’re curious. Lastly (and most importantly), they do what they say they will. I’m making it a point to try every mask-type¬†product in the Freeman line, but haven’t gotten quite that far yet.

 

Here are the ones I have tried so far…

Avocado & Oatmeal Clay Mask РPerfect for firming skin and reducing oil. This works well for controlling acne breakouts.

Mint & Lemon Clay Mask РFirms skin, reduces oil, and the mint/lemon combo will leave your skin feeling super refreshed. My favorite so far!

Charcoal & Black Sugar Polish Mask¬†– Did not work out for me. Very gooey formula that never did dry on my face, which I wasn’t expecting considering it is advertised as both a charcoal product and a mask.

Honeydew & Chamomile¬†Sleeping Mask – Not your traditional “mask”, this is more of¬†a deep moisturizer. It works¬†great for extra dry parts of your face.

Sparkling Pear Pore Cleansing Mask РA lighter whipped clay mask. Does not firm up as tight. Would be a  good option for summer or if you have less oily skin.

 

Be on the lookout for another Freeman mask review… I am so obsessed with them¬†and have lots more waiting ¬†to be tried out. Using them nightly has done wonders for my skin. Check out a few if you get the chance,¬†XOXO.
