TruSelf Organics Detoxifying Mask Review

Here's something of a different pace.
And it's for your face!

I'm a little bit obsessive with having clear skin when it comes to my face. I use a mask at least once a week, exfoliate a few times a week, wash it morning and night, and I drink lots of water. If I'm gonna wear as much makeup as I do, I need to put in the work to make sure my skin is in good condition!

Masks are such an essential to feel fresh and to get deep in your skin where you can't easily wash away. Today I tried the TruSelf Organics Detoxifying Mask and I'm so satisfied!

Follow them on Instagram, truselforganics, and treat yourself on their website!




It comes in a powder form, which is unique to any mask I've used before. Just add water and mix it up. The directions say you only need a small amount, but I'm unsure how small is small, haha. Either way, I think this allows for options of consistency and additions such as honey or oils.

I made mine a little thick. I didn't add anything to it but maybe I will next time!



The mask claims to tone and reduce pores, discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. That's a lot of promise! But I won't expect any miracles in the first go or even in the next few. Skin results take time and patience. However, even though I've only used it once I enjoyed my experience in that one try. I'll have to keep using it for awhile longer to see if it will be my go to or not.

The mask I would have used if not for this would have been Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask. The mint on that is quite strong, sometimes to where it may even hurt. TruSelf Organics Detoxifying Mask does NOT sting and I love that comfort. There's no strong smell either and you can control the consistency.


Since I made mine a little thick it took a bit for it to dry up. Some people are too impatient to do masks but it's a great to take some time to yourself. Just as the card says that was in the package, #loveyourself!

Maybe pass time strengthening your Pokemon team, or maybe I shouldn't be so lazy and do something about my chipped nails, or maybe some other time xD


And after it was all dry and washed off, here are the results!

The only edit on this picture is the lighting and the color. This is my skin directly after removing the mask. I didn't have a before picture cause I didn't think to but I can tell you that the pores on my nose shrunk and it looks much cleaner! It wasn't awful before but it was enough to bother me. I'm SUPER happy with the results for my pores and the lack of blackheads there. Huzzah!

As for the other things the mask claims, well, we'll have to see. I don't really have wrinkles but I'm sure this'll help prevent them as I age. My complexion is just a wee bit uneven. Let's see if that changes over time with this mask. I definitely felt the toning and my skin feels fresh and clean :]

I'm pretty happy with this mask. It's all natural, it's not tested on animals, it doesn't sting my skin, or have an odd smell. All in all it's a great mask!

It's supposed to last longer too since it's in powder form. I thought it was odd at first and maybe even a little bit of a hassle, but I like having the control of the consistency and amount. It won't ever dry up and it'll always be fresh every use!

Now I'm curious about their other products. More specifically their Raw Body Butter. The description is amazing so I want to know if it truly is!

Anyways, this was a great introduction to TruSelf Organics for me. If you buy one for yourself, I hope you have as good of an experience as I have!

Geolica Euro Lady Light Brown Circle Lens Review!

I've been having such a hard time keeping up with this blog lately! I feel so bad ; 3;
Thank you to everyone who's still checking up here and commenting T ^T
I'm hoping to have the motivation to get back into blogging a little more seriously next year. This year has been strange for me but definitely progressive in so many ways. Thank you to everyone who's been there for me and has encouraged me!

Anyways, this is the second to last review of the Euro Lady series from GeoColouredLenses!
This one is for the the Geolica Euro Lady Light Brown!
Read my Lime GreenPearl Gray, and Aqua Blue reviews :]
The last one left is Cobalt Blue.

~ This review is based on my own opinion and experiences. ~

Please take a look at my Circle Lens Care page if you are interested in circle lenses!


Color + Pattern
These are the kind of brown lenses that tend to lean more towards yellow but not unnaturally. Typically, I don't like yellow brown lenses with my skin but I feel like it worked really well with my current hair color. The pattern, just like the rest of the series, is semi-natural. From far away it looks pretty natural but up close you can see the pixelation.

Enlargement
The label says they're 14.2mm but that's hard to believe with the size difference. I wear 14.5mm clear contact lenses which look the same size as these. Though they definitely do appear more natural sized versus other lenses that are labeled 14.5mm for that dolly look.

Comfort
I would expect monthly lenses to be soft, moisturized, and comfortable, and these meet up each expectation. I would recommend just from comfort alone!

Over All
Just as the rest of the series, I seem to always be sad to part ways every month. These aren't my favorite in the series but they're still beautiful. I feel like they would be a favorite for daily brown lens lovers!


Sorry for the lazy pictures Dx''' Wish I coulda done them in the daylight but that's exactly why I do the different lighting/angle pictures just in case I don't get the chance to get nice and bright pictures.

Pastel Velvet Witch

Hello, everyone!

Recently got a few new additions to my wardrobe and I'm happy to have them!
They're the velvet twin sets from Tooth And Eye on Etsy!

The Sky Witch + The Strawberry Witch


These are incredibly perfect for people that don't want to part ways with the summery/spring pastels as cold weather creeps in. I've worn these a few times out already during warm weather and cool weather and I'm just pleased ♡


Between the two I'm in love with the Sky Witch. It's such a lovely color and it makes me feel heavenly ♡ I had to take this picture with my angel wings. The texture is my favorite part though cause it can make a simple outfit pop.



This isn't my style anymore but I put it together anyways cause I thought it was cute for pictures. Typically, I've been wearing the skirt with white tops and the top with white bottoms. Ahhh, I love wearing light colors. I think they look beautiful on brown skin ♡



Tbh, I gravitate towards pink like crazy still even though I can't incorporate these pieces as easily for my current preferences and style. When I saw this set I just couldn't help myself. I'd probably work the Amethyst Witch better now looking at it. That's okay though, I'm sure once Spring rolls around I may want my pink hair back and this is gonna be amazing with it.
