SKIN CARE ROUTINE WITH MINDFUL MINERALS

Mindful Minerals

Taking care of my skin has always been a top priority. Growing up I rarely wore makeup and even now, during the week, I focus more on keeping my skin clean vs. putting makeup to cover blemishes. My mother has more recently been stressing about the importance of skincare since she works for Ideal Image and you only have one chance to keep your skin healthy. So, when Mindful Minerals gave me all of these free products during The Makeup Show, I knew it was a great opportunity to update my skincare routine.

*These items were gifted by Mindful Minerals, but as usual all opinions are my own. I have hormonal acne and want to help others find their cure.

Mindful Minerals is not some trendy product, but a ecologically responsible company bringing you products that benefit you from the inside out. They have been making soaps for over 60 years with minerals found from the Jordan dead sea. These products help benefit people dealing with psoriasis, eczema, arthritis, acne, and even rosacea. They are all organic and free of preservatives, or additives. Mindful Minerals is also a USA manufactured company, right in my own Florida backyard.

My favorite Mindful Minerals product that has been really essential in clearing up my hormonal acne is the Dead Sea Mud Bar. I wash my face morning and evening with this cleansing bar and follow up with the Cranberry Toner, which smells so good.

If I feel that I need a bit more coverage in the morning, then I use the BB Cream in Medium Light which has SPF 30 in it. If I am just going bare faced, or going to bed, then I use the “Get Carded” Anti Aging Peptide Serum. This is a three in one product that will replace your moisturizer, eye cream, and anti-aging serum.

Twice a week, I exfoliate and use a mask. This Get Even Exfoliating Cleanser is gentle, yet gets off all the dead skin and cleans out those pores. The Dead Sea Mud Mask is amazing!!! This mask can be used on any part of your body to help revitalize your skin. This Mindful Minerals mask detoxifies the skin removing oils and impurities, stimulates circulation, and tightens pores. It also takes less than 15 minutes!!

They even have a Natural Self Tanner, which I think does a great job without looking streaky. Plus, I love this Travel Essentials Kit, so that I can pack lightly and still take all natural basics with me on my trips!! Mindful Minerals has a very well rounded selection of products and they are so affordable.

I have been using these products for over 30 days now, that way I could give a proper review. I really feel that my acne has majorly cleared up. Now, because it’s hormonal, I do still get break outs. However, they are much more rare since I have been using these products and they go away much faster now. I fully stand behind these products and will recommend them to anyone.

If you are looking for an all natural skin care product, then I would definitely go check them out. I would love to hear if you have ever used a product made with dead sea minerals before, or if you have a favorite product for dealing with hormonal acne.

VII CODE OXYGEN EYE MASKS – GETTING RID OF DARK CIRCLES

VII CODE OXYGEN EYE MASKS

Hey there fashionistas!! Do you ever feel like you are suffering from lack of sleep?? *raises hands* Between taking care of two children, working full time, spending time with my partner, and investing time into my blog, I just feel like there are not enough hours in the day. Due to this, there are many nights that I stay up past midnight working and still have to get up between 5:30 and 6 a.m. This is a major lack of sleep, when our body really needs 7 to 8 hours.

You may suffer from a lack sleep for many different reasons, but the effects to our faces are almost always the same.  There are dark circles, under eye bags, puffiness, or even a combination of these. Some people may not get any symptoms and that is lucky, but whatever the case may be; I am sure you would love a solution. I don’t want dark circles to show up in my pictures, and I’m sure you don’t either.

VII CODE OXYGEN EYE MASKS

I never used to be a mask girl, but lately they have become a large part of my beauty regimen. I use sheet masks, clay masks, charcoal mask, and my newest mask, under eye masks. My favorite gel material eye masks for helping relieve puffiness and dark circles are the VII Code Oxygen Eye Masks. Their O2M, oxygen eye mask for dark circles, is made to eliminate both dark circles and puffiness and make your under eyes more plump and smooth.

One box of VII Code Oxygen Eye Masks comes with 6 eye masks and for best results they recommend you do 3 boxes for a total of 18 treatments. What I like best about these masks is that they actually stay put on your eyes and you are supposed to wear them for 8 hours overnight. Then, I wake up feeling refreshed and with zero puffiness. I have very thin skin under my eyes, so I still need to use a bit of corrector and concealer, but not as much as I was using before because I don’t have that sunken in look anymore, or the puffiness like I woke up with an allergic reaction.

VII CODE OXYGEN EYE MASKS

All in all, I would say this is a good eye mask and if you suffer from dark circles it will really help you wake up with more refreshed under eyes. The price tag is a bit high on this product though, which is the only downside in my opinion. I would start out with a box of 6 first and see how you like it and go from there. You can purchase VII Code Oxygen Eye Masks from Amazon and use Prime to get 2 day free shipping!!

*Disclosure: This product was sent to me free to review, but all opinions are my own.

MAKEUP HAUL | THE ORLANDO MAKEUP SHOW

Hey there gorgeous fashionistas, I have another beauty Tuesday post for all of you!! Have you ever been to the Orlando Makeup Show? I feel so blessed that I attended this year. It was a great opportunity to hang out with my makeup loving blogger babes, meet new lovely ladies, and mingle with some really cool people within the fashion and beauty industry. I was lucky enough to be included as press for this event, and when you are press, you are gifted a goody bag to take home. So, I thought I should probably share my Orlando Makeup Show haul with you, before I start using all of these fabulous products.

THANK YOU ORLANDO MAKEUP SHOW:

*Disclosure: I was press for this event, which granted me free access to the event all weekend and free products. All opinions on this event and the products are my own though. 

I also, went a little bit over board purchasing some new items for myself, but everything I bought was at least 40% off, so The Orlando Makeup Show was a great place to buy your makeup for an awesome price. Also, they have Makeup Shows in 4 other cities, so check and see if there is one near you!

WHAT I PURCHASED:

Can you have too many beauty products? I think my beauty junkie girlfriends Lucielle Salomon & Kay Del Valle would say no. Check out their makeup hauls too, if you are also beauty product obsessed like us! Has anything here caught your eye?

P.S. I think my favorite products I received were from Mindful Minerals, which a blog post is coming soon about them. I wanted to make sure I had been using the products for enough time to give an honest review. I have had a lot of hormonal acne, which has driven me crazy because I never had acne growing up. I have bought all kinds of expensive products, but I didn’t feel like I was seeing any results. This product really has helped me, so I plan on sharing my skincare routine with all of you, best of all it’s all natural and organic.
