Bliss Pore Patrol Mask

Not a week goes by in my life without at least one mask night. My latest love is the Bliss Pore Patrol Deep Detox Clay Soufflé Mask. This deliciously silky clay mask is aerated with a combination of four types of clays (French Green Montmorillonite, Bentonite, Kaolin and Sea Clay) to deeply cleanse and minimize the look of pores to leave your skin super soft and never dry or tight.

I also LOVEEEE that Bliss is 100% cruelty-free AND blissfully-free from parabens, phthalates, sulfates, SLS and SLES. Available at Blissworld.com and Target and Ulta Beauty.


Stepping up my asian skincare game

shiseido benefiance honeyandvelvet

Everything is pretty great so far. I've been using the Shiseido Benefiance eye cream religiously and I officially can't live without this hydrating face mist from AmorePacific. The only thing I'm not super into is this weird dry/rough sensation that the Shiseido cleanser makes me feel after I wash my face despite the "extra creamy" formula. Maybe I should try a different line. Oh, and something I've been using a lot lately are sleeping masks - this one from Amore Pacific makes smells like heaven and my skin look and feel so nourished and hydrated when I wake up in the morning! 

Anyways, just thought I'd share a quick update on what my skincare routine has been looking like lately since it's been a while since I've written a beauty post. I hope you have a great week, ladies. Remember to drink lots of water, never sleep with your makeup on and alwayssss moisturize your skin!! :) 

I used to pride myself in how low maintenance I was, but as I started reaching my mid-20s, not only did I begin to realize how amazing the daily ritual of cleansing/moisturizing/masking made me feel.... It also made my skin look SO good. I used to feel super insecure about going out "bare-faced" with no make-up, but you know what? There is NOTHING that makes me feel more confident than having clear, healthy and glowing skin. Strangely, I also used to think that girls who were super into makeup/skincare were just way too into themselves, but quite frankly,  there's really nothing wrong or selfish about wanting pamper your skin and to take care of yourself. It's true what they say... When you look good, you feel really good.

As I turn another year older in 2018, I thought it's time to step up my skincare game - and I'm talking about Asian skincare specifically. I don't know why, but girls in Asia have have really good skin. Also, I know I should have started much sooner, but I've just hopped on the bandwagon of wearing sunscreen obsessively lately and with nothing lower than SPF 50. For you girls who go as high as SPF 120 - please tell me where you shop and how can I get on that level?? 

My two of favorite Asian beauty brands at the moment are Shiseido and Amore Pacific. I was very kindly gifted a few products from Amore Pacific, and then I went all crazy and splurged on all these Shiseido goodies while I was in Rome (yes, I know... out of all places), but life is tough when you live out of a suitcase and I had limited luggage allowance flying out of NYC so it was easier just stocking up in Italy.

Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colors

 

Bobbi Brown just released a new lipstick range and I am smitten.  

I am absolutely in love with these seriously high-impact colors that create a gorgeously matte, hydrating and just-kissed stain effect, all in one.  The blotted down finished lasts a full day for up to 8 hours and the fade proof formula is also rich in Vitamins E and C for a comfortable glide and soft, hydrated lips. 

With 20 shades to choose from, it's so hard to play favorites.  But if I really have to choose my top three favorite shades, I'd been wearing Angel, Babe and Grenadine on repeat. What's your favorite?
