P!nk Beauty Rose and Hemp Face Mask Review.

On Wednesdays we wear pink! P!nk Beauty that is! 😀

I decided to have a mini pamper and try out the Rose & Hemp face mask which was part of my PR package from P!nk Beauty. Of course Willow wondered what the heck was going on when I walked into the room looking like this. 😂

What I love about clay masks is when you feel the mask hardening. I dunno, maybe I’m weird that way but I find it quite satisfying haha; It makes me feel like it’s doing its magic. I left it on for about 15 minutes then rinsed it off with warm water. Before I took it off I glanced at myself in the mirror and saw it had drawn out the oil and dirt from my pores around my nose (showed up as little black dots on the clay mask) which I thought was really cool! The mask was really easy to rinse off and my face felt so smooth and soft afterwards.

Featuring my little Willow who insisted on holding the pot for me lol.

This mask is perfect for those with sensitive combination skin like myself. It helps fight against the signs of aging, relieves inflammation and skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, and also helps relieve acne too. The rose clay draws out all the dirt and oil (which is what it was doing on my nose). As well as being an anti-inflammatory, hemp seed oil moisturises the skin and creates a protective barrier that locks in the moisture. This is just some of the benefits from the ingredients in this face mask (drop by P!nk Beauty’s Instagram page to learn more). The ingredients are all natural too and is cruelty-free and lovingly hand made by @christalsmakeup.

I absolutely adore this brand and would definitely recommend. The fact that the products are all natural just speaks to my Boho natural skincare loving heart. The brand is a US brand but does ship internationally (I’m from the UK). When I get a chance I’ll be stopping by and buying more products!

A bit of primer and mascara go a long way.

I am in no way an expert at the art of applying makeup and most of the time I don’t bother wearing it. However, I do feel a little more human-looking once I’ve put on some primer, mascara and lip balm. I don’t always do it but when I can’t be bothered to put on the full war paint yet still want to make some kind of effort, those are my go-to items. I just feel that the primer smooths out the flaws a little? the mascara brings out the eyes and the lip balm makes your lips smooth and soft.

Today I used my Rimmel Stay Matte Primer, Avon Supershock mascara in black and another mascara, also in black, which has a ball style brush to help separate and “lengthen” the lashes. It also helps get the lashes in the outer corner of the eye. I love that mascara but can’t for the life of me remember what brand it is as all the writing had come off but it’s red with a black top. The lip balm I used is by Cecily. It’s Banoffee Pie flavoured!

What a fab and wonderful book this was! This is primarily a recipe book to make your own Earth-friendly natural skin/beauty products but it is also filled with information on how to care for your skin, and how using natural products is not only kinder to your skin but also the environment, and also info about the beauty industry and the “natural” products commercially sold in shops and how they aren’t so natural after all! There is also a small section near the front of the book with a few food recipes to steer you in the right direction to eating healthy. And eating healthy means healthy skin too!

You don’t have to read this from the beginning, you can just dip in and out of it whenever you want. It’s filled with tonnes of really easy to follow recipes to make your own yummy and kind-to-your-skin beauty products from lip balms to face creams to shampoo, and from just a handful of ingredients too! I’m itching to make some scrummy smelling lip balm and all I’d need is 2 or 3 ingredients! What is really helpful is that the author notes the shelf life of each recipe so you know how long it’s going to last you once it’s made. The first thing I wanted to do after reading this, actually it was during if I’m totally honest, is go out and buy all the ingredients and utensils to make my own beauty products. I can’t wait to try them out. The best thing about making your own products is that you know exactly what you’re putting in there and that there’s no nasty chemicals or added preservatives, colours etc. Instead it is all natural which is especially great if you have sensitive skin. This book really is amazing and definitely worth a read.
