My FAV DRUGSTORE Face Masks ♡

FullSizeRender-2

Hi my loves! I am sooo excited to finally be getting around to doing this blog post for you guys! I have been trying out so many different drugstore face masks to bring you the BEST of the BEST in my book.

I have picked my top 4 face masks that work for a wide range of things.

We all deserve a little pampering every now and again and I know it can get a little pricey. I am here to show you a way to pamper yourself while ballin’ on a budget….that way you have no excuse as to why you haven’t taken the time to give your face a little love. TREAT YO SELF (cheaply).

Anywayyssssss, without further ado, let’s just jump right into it shall we? <3

1. YES To Tomatoes Acne Fighting Paper Mask – ($2.52) 

FullSizeRener

This is for all my oily/problematic skin girls out there! The struggle is real am I right? And finding a good drugstore face mask that is able to get the job done can be a challenge. This one has by far been one of my favorites. It has SAVED my skin, especially my post-travel skin. The great thing about this is that you can literally just lay the sheet on your face (granted you look like a real-life, creepy snapchat filter) but HEY whatever gets the job done am I right?! After about 10 minutes you just take if off, rub the excess amount into your skin, and let the magic happen!

2. L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask – ($9.77) 

FullizeRender

If you want your skin to feel tightened and toned, then this is the mask for you! Granted I don’t have wrinkles (yet) but you are never too young for anti-aging masks right?! This mask doesn’t claim to be anti-aging…but it does pretty much the same thing as an anti-aging mask would do. It leaves your skin feeling amazing and so soft afterwards. I like to use it after I do a more harsh face mask, to leave my skin feeling soft and lifted. LOVE!

3. YES To Grapefruit Brightening Peel – ($10.83) 

FullSizeReer

I hit the JACKPOT finding this. I have tried samples of peels before from Sephora but have never persuaded myself into buying them because they are just so dang expensive. SO, when I saw this at Walmart I HAD to get it. I was shocked at how much better my pores looked after this. I honestly feel like it worked better than any of the samples I had tried from Sephora, and it’s a quarter of the price!

4. Organic Botanik Australia Chia Seed Face Mask – ($5.99)

FullSizeRender-1

So this gem I found at Marshalls and to be honest, I only bought it because I thought the name was so cute….Organik Botanik?! SOLD…to the lady who is a sucker for cute names and packaging. OMG but guys this face mask is amazing. I have never tried a face mask before that has chia seeds in it! TALK ABOUT SOFT SKIN. If you see this at your local Marshalls be sure to pick it up! If not, Amazon can be your friend. It may just be my favorite out of all of them all. Save the best for the last...see what I did there.

And there ya have it! My FAV GO-TO DRUGSTORE face masks.

Happy pampering my lovies! xo

Tips And Tricks To Become More Confident

As I sit in my room, I often ponder random thoughts. I’m not gonna lie to you, most of them completely irrelevant and totally weird. But, besides those weird thoughts, I find myself constantly thinking about why do we as a society like to bring others down? Then I continue to check my Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. and constantly see someone unhappy with the way they look. Or just the way the feel. Wanting to be someone better, or look like another girl. It has suddenly become clear to me that one of the greatest obstacles we face as women is the trap of comparing ourselves with other women. But you know what? YOU were made that way for a reason. You are the one to bring a smile to someone’s face because you have something special and unique that no one else has to offer!

Don’t get me wrong, of course I have my not so “confident” days and I too find myself getting jealous of someone else’s appearance, or maybe their success in life. WHY CAN’T MY LIFE BE LIKE THAT?! Sure, we’ve all felt that way.

Here are 5 simple ways that YOU can become more confident:

1. Stop comparing!

Stop comparing yourself to others around you. Rather, embrace who you are. Embrace your red hair and freckles that you were born with. Or your beautiful brown eyes. Your naturally curly hair. Your naturally straight hair. Whatever it may be, EMBRACE it.

2. Focus on your passion!

Someone doesn’t agree or like what you want to do with your life?! WELL good thing that it’s your life and NOT theirs! Follow your heart and passion and I promise you, you will find so much happiness!

3. Love yourself!

I cannot stress this one enough!! Rather than bashing yourself and your flaws, learn to embrace them. No one is perfect! Once you learn to love yourself and all your flaws, no one can bring you down about them.

4. Be positive!

Life is far too short to sit around and feel sorry for yourself. Look at every bad situation as a learning experience. Pick yourself up, and move along. Don’t dwell in the past, it is meant to be in the PAST…don’t let it ruin your future girl!

5. Encourage and build up others

See someone looking down or sad? Compliment them! Boost their confidence. You could turn their bad day right around just by some kind words! When you start building others up and encouraging them, you will find that you are happier too!

So there you have it, those are my tips and tricks to you to feel and become more confident. It takes time to build up confidence and a feeling of greatness, but trust me. YOU CAN DO IT. You are beautiful just the way you are.

Remember that.

Another great thing to do when you are feeling down is to look at inspirational/motivational quotes on Pinterest to brighten up your mood!

Here are a few of my favs:

Pinklittlebows – Beauty Insider: 9 Overnight Beauty Products To Save Your Skin

While your mind is switched off, your body is busy renewing itself. So why not do yourself a favor and follow these 9 easy steps to renew and refresh your skin overnight to keep you waking up “flawless”. <3

1. Extra Thick Night Cream

You probably already know that moisturizing is the most important part of your skincare routine, and if you didn’t while now you do! It is best to go with a night cream that’s heavier than your daytime moisturizer. Lather that stuff up on your face, no need to be generous with it. Trust me, your skin will thank you later!

My fav is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream – http://www.sephora.com/ultra-repair-cream-P248407?skuId=1217744

2. Overnight Eye Treatment

If you have trouble sleeping at night or have really heavy dark circles under your eyes, you probably experience lack of moisturize under your eyes. It is essential to use an eye cream every night.

Splurge: Bobbi Brown Eye Cream – http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?keyword=bobbi%20brown%20hydrating%20eye%20cream&skuId=1287960&productId=P270544&_requestid=91087

Affordable: http://www.sephora.com/detox-eye-roller-P248406?skuId=1217736

3. Overnight Hair Treatment

If you have time to slather your face up with moisture, make some time for your hair too! Any overnight hair treatment can help with chemically processed locks and bring back some life into your hair. No need to spend a fortune on a high end treatment, just get some handy dandy Coconut Oil and you’re good to go!

4. Intense Hand and Foot Cream

I still struggle with this step! I am the worst when it comes to moisturizing my feet and hands, but I am getting better! I like to use the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream that I use for my face. Another great moisturizer to use are the ones from The Body Shop. They have all sorts of different scents to choose from and they work amazing.

5. A Humidifier

Turn your room into a moisture heaven while you sleep. This will help open up your sinuses and clear your head too if you are feeling a little under the weather!

6. An Overnight Facial Mask

Though it may seem a bit much, it’s a great way to rescue totally dry, irritated skin. My skin is very oily and I still like to use one every once and a while. You will wake up with glowing skin the next morning!

GlamGlow ‘Thirstymud’ http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?keyword=glam%20glow%20thirsty%20mud&skuId=1582725&productId=P384782&_requestid=93059

(It is very soo out of my budget, but that’s the beauty of FREE samples…which is the only way I use it ha!)

7. Nighttime Lip Balm

Any lip balm will do! Just make sure you apply every night to reduce the risk of chapped lips.

BITE BEAUTY Agave Lip Mask – http://www.sephora.com/agave-lip-mask-P384629?skuId=1575042

8. Overnight Serum

Any overnight serum will help prevent aging, wrinkles, and tighten up your skin. People think I am crazy for using a serum since I am only 17, but hey it’s is never too early to start prevent aging right?!

LUSH Full of Grace – http://www.lushusa.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-Lush-Site/en_US/Search-Show?q=face%20serum

9. Overnight Body Oil

Because lotion just doesn’t cut it sometimes lol!

Thank you all so much for reading <3

Pinklittlebows – Beauty Insider: How Often Should You Be Washing Your Hair?

Hey guys! I wanted to do a quick post on how often you should really be washing your hair! Now I am no professional and I honestly hate dealing with my hair, these are just some tips and tricks that I have heard from my hairdressers and it has really improved the condition of my hair.

I suffer from very oily hair which I feel as though almost most of us do. I used to have the bad habit of washing my hair everyday, which I found out is VERY damaging to your hair. Washing your hair everyday can actually strip the natural oils from your hair causing your hair to overproduce oils since it feels so dry….

So how often should you wash your hair then??

I know it may seem gross but…..every 2-3 days you should wash it. Of course you can shower within those 2-3 days, just make sure to put your hair up when you do! This has been a hard transition for me to get used to, because for years I have been washing my hair everyday. It is definitely a process that I am slowly but surely getting used to. I now see a huge difference in my hair, not only is my hair less greasy, but it is much more soft and healthier now.

An alternative to not washing your hair is of course using a dry shampoo! I usually use a dry shampoo after about the second day of not washing my hair. Dry shampoos are very easy to use and can be found pretty much anywhere!

To use: Section off your hair into four sections like you would if you were straightening or curling your hair. Spray the dry shampoo throughout each section on the part of your hair that is greasy (most likely the roots of your hair). Now, don’t make the mistake I used to make and automatically start rubbing the dry shampoo into your hair, the whole purpose of a dry shampoo is to soak up all the excess oil in your hair….which is why you should wait about 10-15 minutes before rubbing it all together. While waiting for the dry shampoo to soak in, I usually take that time to do my makeup or something. Once you’ve waited about 10-15 minutes, just brush through your hair and WALA….clean hair without having to physically wash it (:

Thank you all so much for reading <3

Hopefully this was some help to you. Let me know in the comments below if you there is something in particular you want me to blog about, I would love to hear some ideas from you guys (:
