GlamGlow Youth Mud Review

I've been seeing youth mud all over the internet and caved... i needed to try it!

Stopped by my local Sephora and picked up the Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment. When I went home I immediately washed my face and read the directions for the mask. It says that the mask is going to tingle and let me tell you... IT FUCKING BURNED. for like.... 3 minutes. but shoot, I had to leave this on for 10 minutes so that's about 30% of the time I had it on!


Fast forward to washing it off... I was so impressed! my pores were significantly tinier and I think it even shrank some of my hormonal pimples. Fair warning, this treatment felt real intense. Bare with it because the end result is fantastic! just be sure to wear enough moisturizer because this can definitely be drying. The mask says to use 1-2 times weekly and I'm actually already excited to use it again just to see what my pores look like.

Think Warm Thoughts.

It's another snow storm in Boston but with 1 foot instead of 3-4 feet like last week so I've been trying to reintroduce summer skin beauty and skin care back into my life on these snow days so I can pretend like I'm not here.

Last week I used the new CiatE Ice Cream collection, I must say the pigmentation and drying time for their nail polish has improved over the past 2 years! It's still going to need more than one coat but the color pay off is very beautiful and took about a full week to even start chipping away.

I purchased the mini collection at Sephora, here is the link

Also, I followed up with my beloved Sally Hansen Insta-Dry top coat to ensure a glossy long lasting mani.

Sea Salt Hair Spray Battle

 As some of you may know I am a straight up weekend warrior so I work weekends at Lush Cosmetics! Last year (or maybe a year and half?) they came out with Sea Spray Hair Spray which is their version of a cruelty free, fresh, and cruelty free hair spray! It's suppose to gie you beachy waves if you scrunch it OR it can tame your baby hairs like it does mine :)! I do feel like this does a good just of leaving hair workable but this does not have a super strong hold unless you use a lot... Here is the link to the US site, you can sometimes get a better price form the UK site but it really depends on when you want your product by.,en_US,pd.html#start=2

SURF SPRAY- Bumble and Bumble
If you're looking for something with a great hold, I suggest bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. BEWARE, this may dry your hair out, not sure what ingredient it was wrecking havoc on my strands but it was kinda gross
after I used it for the full day. Be sure to use a deep conditioner after you've use this spray to keep your hair in tip top condition! I think this going to be great for oily hair btw.... i don't have oily hair but it would def be interesting to see how people that do have oilier scalps and hair feel about this product. I purchased mine from sephora, here is the link:

Hope where every you are, you're enjoying the sun or pretending like summer is around the corner just like me! :)
