Weekly Beauty Obsession


Hi everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous week. I am coming back with one of my favorite posts with a weekly beauty obsession 🙂 (even though today’s product is technically a skin care item). Over the past year I have considered skin care as part of my beauty routine. If you neglect to take good care of your skin then your makeup isn’t going to look as flawless as you want it to (no matter how “full coverage” of a foundation you get).
I have made sheet masks a part of my routine 2-3 times a week. I avoided trying them for the longest time because I thought everyone was just hyping up a product. I thought they weren’t going to work as good as I wanted. However, I was completely wrong! They are amazing, if your skin is dry, acne prone, oily or everything there is a sheet mask that will work for your face.
After trying many different brands my ultimate favorite is currently the Leader’s Insolution brand found in Ulta. These sheet masks come soaking in serum (literally the mask is drenched in serum lol). To me this is extremely important because you don’t want the sheet mask to dry out in five minutes. To ensure your face is soaking up all of the nutrients in the mask I like to leave it on as long as I can (usually 15-30 minutes). My favorite is the AC Clear treatment mask & the Hydrating mask, this time though I tried out the Tea Tree one and it’s great for when your face is breaking out.
What is your favorite sheet mask or facial to use?

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer Review

Hi everybody, I hope your week is off to a good start. I’ve been having some fun lately trying out new products, so I thought I would review the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer . I originally picked this product up because I was running out of my Smashbox BB Water and this kind of looked like a dupe for that.

On the packaging it listed what the product actually would do, which is what got my attention. It has SPF 20, a retinol treatment, sheer tint and is oil-free not to mention the price point was $12.99, compared to Smashbox BB Water for $42. My initial impression was that I really liked this product, and that it was comparable to Smashbox. However after wearing it for a couple of weeks I didn’t like it as much as I initially did. The color of the product is interesting it looks more cool tone in the bottle, but when you put it on and blend it out you can’t really tell because of the sheer tint formula. I also thought this product would be perfect to wear going outside or to the gym, basically anywhere you will sweat a lot, and that didn’t work out too well. While it looks good when you put it on, after you start to sweat if you rub the product off on your hands, towel or anything it will easily wipe away and transfer. (Which I found out at the gym when I looked down at my shirt lol)

Overall, I like this product I don’t think it is horrible but I think the Smashbox BB Water is a little better. I might repurchase this product but I would rather spend some extra money on a product like Smashbox and wear it more. I am not completely disappointed with this product because I will keep using this. It just didn’t live up to the expectation I had in my head.

I hope you enjoyed this review, I will be back later this week with another summer makeup look. Have a great day 🙂
