Tuesday Tip: Instantly Radiant Skin

Ever just wake up in the morning and for whatever reason your skin looks dull or flat? Like you drank too much, but you didn’t? (Or maybe you did, I don’t know what you’ve been up to!) I’ve found the short-term cure: L’Oreal’s Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Mask. I love this product because it takes only five minutes and results are immediate. You apply, leave it for 5 minutes (while you sip your coffee), then gently rub it into your skin briefly to exfoliate, before rinsing off. I like to rinse the mask off with a damp towel rather than my fingers for better exfoliation. Voila! Instantly perkier morning skin. I’m not sure about any “renewing cells”, but my skin is rosier and brighter looking, which is all I can really ask for. You can pick it up at any drugstore including Amazon and Target.

Tip: Make sure you get the “mask” and not the “cream”, they are different, but look the same.

The Best Beauty Gadgets You Need Now (That Actually Work!)

Ladies – there’s a lot of beauty gadget nonsense and hype out there. With all the new products coming out all the time, how do you know what’s worth the $$ and what’s not? Behold, my favorite tried and true gadgets you won’t regret (at all price points!)
Eyelash Curler
If I could have only ONE beauty product for the rest of my life, an eyelash curler would be it. It is literally the best invention of all time (better than electricity and indoor plumbing? Maybe.). Using an eyelash curler takes 10 seconds and makes your eyes look bigger, brighter, more lovely, more awake. And don’t cheap out on a $5 drugstore version, invest the $20 in one that works better and will last for years: Shu Uemera or Kevyn Aucon. Just buy one. Don’t break my heart.

Best Face Masks For Any Skin Type

My favorite Sunday ritual! FACE MASKS. I try to also do one on Wednesday but for some reason it’s more fun on Sundays, when I’m drinking and watching Jon Snow. I’ve rounded up four that get results, no matter what your skin needs. (Half my skin is oily half is dry, so I need it all.) I don’t stick to one but instead, like to rotate a couple, so I check all the boxes over time. If you use the Boscia mask, you peel it off like a creepy villain. The other masks you wash off with water.
