Since I have sworn off exfoliating scrubs a la Lisa Eldridge, my skin has been looking a bit dull. Earlier today, I had a small window for a quick pick me up. The boys had just gone down for their nap. I had 30 minutes to mask, shower, and get ready. To be honest, this Alba Botanica Hawaiian face mask has been sitting in my medicine cabinet for a minute. I was skeptical about it when Health Designs sent it to me a few months ago. The first time I read the directions, "Apply for 5 minutes", I shrugged it off....and I am so sad I waited this long....

A couple weeks ago, healthdesigns.com sent me a package with a bunch of awesome goodies, including, one of my all time favorites -- Queen Helene's Mint Julep Clay Masque. I am no stranger to the Mint Julep mask. It's one of my favorite drugstore masks! (Actually, the Mint Julep Masque was the inspiration behind Masque Sundays. It's been my go-to mask for years!)I love to use it straight out of the shower when my face has been cleansed, and my pores are open. When I'm done, my pores feel less clogged, and skin is cool, brightened and smooth! The best part about the mask is that the 8oz. tube is less than $5!! The tube lasts me at least 10 treatments. It's available at many online retailers, including healthdesigns.com , which has it for only $3.51! Get $5 off with my promocode "mshealthyface" So, that means it's free, and you can get other goodies, too!!!! TIP Here's a great tip to make cleaning up after a snap! To make remov

It is hard with our busy schedules, but if you mark a certain time once a week, or every two weeks, or even once a month, your soul will thank you! Last night I gave myself 20 minutes ;) I put on my silly Psy Ceramide Sheet Mask, marked my timer, and hung out with hubby, and watched "Swamp Pawn" >_< He's very much into shows relating to the swamp....#duckdynasty #swamppeople...you know... lolz The mask was pretty impressive. It had a light, perfume-y scent. Definitely not overpowering, at all. It was felt fresh, and cool on my just washed skin. Actually, my skin was feeling a bit drier than usual, and so I was looking forward to the ceramide's hydrating effects. What is Ceramide ? First, our outer most layer = epidermis, and the top layer of the epidermis = stratum corneum (SC). The SC is super thin, but is super important as it is the main barrier of the skin. It keeps chemicals tha
