Multi-Masking

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know how much I love my face masks. I’m constantly trying out new ones to try and find the best for my skin type. Now, when I say constantly, I mean constantly. I do a face mask almost every day of the week (especially during the colder winter months). Here are the current masks I’m rotating back and forth with!

This mask is great at what it does, sucking all the bad stuff out of your face. However, I’m finding that it’s doing maybe too good of a job. I broke out like crazy from this mask but I kept using it. I figured that it was just detoxing my skin and after a month or so it would start to clear up. No such luck. I think I’m going to start using this as my nighttime spot treatment instead of using it as an all over face mask. Any tips out there I should be taking into account with this mask? I hear nothing but good things but my goodness my skin is NOT liking it!

Any of GlamGlow’s products have always been my ultimate go-to. I have tried three or four of their masks in the past and I never have any problems with them. I cannot rave about these enough. I always follow the Origins Charcoal mask, the next day, with this mask to really moisturize my face. It smells so amazing and works like a dream! I love it. My skin is so soft and smooth the next day.

This is a newer mask for me but I have worked it into my mix of masks throughout the week. This mask supposedly moisturizes and tightens the face. I see both of those claims after using it. I love this mask as well. I could do without the potent smell but, beggars can’t be choosers!

Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips

This isn’t exactly a mask but I thought I’d bring it up anyways because I use this once a week for about a year now. I can’t imagine not using it now! These charcoal pore strips work like magic! Buh-bye nasty blackheads!

I hope you enjoyed this post and maybe found a new mask you’d like to try. As I said, I’m always looking for new masks to try out so comment below some of your favorites!

Makeup & Skincare Haul Reviews

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

I’ve had these products for a little over a month now and I feel like I’ve used them all enough to give a good review on my thoughts/experiences. I’m overall very pleased with all my purchases which I was expecting. I tried to research the products to the best of my ability since most all of these products were for my big day. So, without further ado, let’s get into the products.

Origins Active Charcoal Mask

This mask has been great and I feel like it’s actually doing its job. My face feels so much better after using it. I definitely don’t use it more than once a week; so, I’ve worked it into my weekend pamper routine and I’m thoroughly enjoying it!

RCMA Powder

I don’t know why it took me so long to try this! This powder is amazing. I’ve been using it to bake my under eye area and lightly dusting it all over my face to set my foundation. It looks so natural and keeps my concealer from creasing under my eyes. Amazing product and I highly recommend it!

Hourglass Stick Foundation

I used this foundation the week prior to my wedding and on the big day itself. It was an amazing full coverage foundation that wore well throughout the day. It photographed beautifully all day and night. However, I did return it to Sephora afterwards because I prefer a more natural foundation for my day to day life. I don’t attend many extravagant events that would prompt me to keep it around. If a beautiful full coverage is what you’re looking for, I highly recommend this product.

Sephora Collection Pro Press Full Coverage Complexion Brush

This brush is amazing and paired so well with the Hourglass Stick Foundation, which was my intent when purchasing it. With taking back the Hourglass foundation, I also returned this. I prefer my Born This Way foundation application with my trusty Beauty Blender. I was sad to see this brush go; but, again, I had no need for it to just sit around in my makeup collection

Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray

I’ll definitely be repurchasing this product again and again after I use it up. I’ve been using it every day after I’m done with my makeup. It blends the powder so well into the foundation that no matter how much makeup you pack on, you won’t look cakey. Love this stuff!

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Frill Seeker

This color is to die for and my ultimate go-to when I’m painting my nails. The formula was great as well! I used this polish for my toes on the big day and the color is still on! I’m very impressed! I’m eager to see how well it lasts on my fingernails once I need to repaint them. I’ll keep you updated!

Vegas Nay Lashes in Easy Elegance

As I said in my previous post, these lashes are the perfect amount of wispy and fluffy. They looked amazing. I had many people ask me if they were real or eyelash extensions. I didn’t use the eyelash glue that came with the lashes; instead, I used my trusty Ardell clear glue. I look forward to trying more Vegas Nay lashes in the future!

I had a lot of winners in this haul (thank goodness). It’s always a great feeling to add more essential products to the arsenal. I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about these products and I hope you try some out. Let me know in the comments below if you have any recommendations for me to try out next!
