Beauty Secret: The MOST AMAZING Masks EVER

These two beauty masks by Boscia are a must-do in my beauty routine to keep my skin looking revitalized, rejuvenated, young and smooth. Why two masks?

As we transition from one season to another, we expose our skin to different elements that weren’t present before. Hence why I have two masks and use the one best suited to help my skin fight off the harshness it’s exposed.

The Luminizing Black Mask is an amazing way to get a great start to the week. For me, my week doesn’t start until I use this mask on Monday morning right after my shower. While the mask is drying off (takes about 20-min), I”m brushing my teeth and having breakfast. Right after that, I peel it off and what I see is beautiful glowing skin that’s clean and bright. Its also the day I wear the least amount of makeup because I don’t need thanks to

this mask.

This mask is amazing for all skin types (and perfect if you have sensitive skin like myself). With ingredients like witch hazel, vitamin c, calcium montmorillonite clay, eucalyptus, pink bark extract and jojoba, this mask is amazing and packed with essential ingredients that help minimize your pores, firm’s your face, removes excess oil and reduces inflammation.

I highly suggest you using it a few minutes after your shower to help trap all the moisture that your skin just absorbed.

 

 

How to use it:

-Apply an even layer to clean dry skin (avoid eye area, eyebrows, hairline and lips)

-Leave it on for 20-min (or until completely dry)

-Gently peel of the make from the outer edges slowly

-Rinse off of any residue with cold water

-Follow up with a moisturizer

The Bright White Mask is great if your skin is dry. With all the traveling I do and shuffling from Toronto, Seattle, Vancouver, Las Vegas and New York, my skin gets dry being exposed to humidity and air condition for an extended period of time. In fact, it gets super dry in my T-zone area and with winter coming I can expect it to get worse….Fight it off with a great Bright White Mask.

This mask is amazing at hydrating your skin, reducing dark spots (I have a few near the edge of my chin), minimize fine lines and brighten the complexion. The Vitamin C helps brighten your skin complexion, delivers hydration to your skin an boosts collagen production to help reduce sagging.

How to use it? Same way as you would use the Luminizing Black Mask.

Right now, I’ve already packed in a small container of the White Mask to use while I’m in NYC because I know I’ll need it while being exposed constantly to humidity, AC and pollution. And yes, before I head out for my trip to NYC, I’m starting my Monday the awesome way…with my Boscia Luminizing Black Mask.

Traveling in Comfort

With my recent move to Toronto, I travel quite frequently. How frequent you ask?

Well in less than 30 days I’ve gone to Vancouver, Seattle and Vegas…and next week I’ll be in NYC. With my basically living out of a suitcase (with the odd pit stop in Toronto), traveling in comfort becomes very important to me. This doesn’t mean you cannot be stylish.

Hearty Breakfast before I catch my flight…

¬†…and give in to my sweet tooth with this AMAZING strawberry croissant

When I’m flying a great distance (+3 hours), my wardrobe is loose and baggy. I want to wear something that I can easily fall asleep in and is breathable.

My shoes…they are all about easy slip on and off. The lineups for the TSA booth are already long, so let’s face it, I certainly would hate to be the person that causes bottleneck because of my shoes. >_<

PLUS don’t forget to bring some in flight entertainment with you to help the time fly by smoothly. Not all flights provide free entertainment onboard, some you will have whip out your credit card. If you plan on staying away for your flight and want to spend any $$ on the flight, install some of your favorite TV Shows/Movies on your device to help the flight go fast.

Black and Sparkles

Last night in Vegas and I’m starting to pack my suitcase and noticed I haven’t worn this sparkly number for a very long time. We went hotel hoping and finally got a chance to try out the dessert place in the Wynn. I highly recommend you trying out the macaroons and gelato’s at Sugar and Ice found in the Wynn and sit outside enjoying the view and mini waterfalls you get exclusive access to.

Trip To Grand Canyon

Have you ever been to the Grand Canyon? Before today, the answer was never.

It’s been on my bucket list of places to visit and today I can officially say I did it! I Saw the Grand Canyon beyond what can be seen in the airplane.

Do I want to go there again? Yes!

Recommendation:

If you are pressed for time, highly recommend you going there by helicopter. Warning, it’s PRICEY!

If you are not pressed for time, rent a car and head out there with a large memory stick.
