The 2 Most Fun Korean Beauty Inspired Masks

So i took on the task of looking like a cloud just for you all! And I’m not gonna lie, it was super fun.  The Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask and the Elf Hydrating Bubble Masks were on my list.  Each with a different purpose but both I was sure would be fun to try out and use.

The Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask is designed to deep clean your pores and be a very fun experience.  The photos of women looking literally like clouds was too much to deny!  It comes with a cute tiny spatula and just spoon a nice layer all over your face (careful under your nose cause it does expand and it does tickle)

Yup! Thats the insanity that ensued! And ill be honest, it did a great job of cleansing my skin, it did feel a bit “squeaky clean” which is a bit harsh to me but it did a great job deep cleaning my skin and pores.  If you are on the oilier side and not at all dry this might help balance out your skin, but for any level of dry this is too harsh and drying.  My other issue with this mask is how difficult to remove it is, the shower and a washcloth are my recommendation!

Now the owner of E.L.F. has flat out said how much she loves Korean skin care, the quality of the ingredients and unique ideas.  Theres no denying the influence with their cleansing products that they have been rolling out.  They even have a magnetic mask at a great price point.  Now this is a hydrating mask not a cleansing mask but BUBBLES! So its worth a shot for comparison.

Now the packaging is very different, its not a pot you scoop from but instead you press down and the product squeezes out the top which I find more sanitary not dipping into a larger container, I know this seems silly but think about all the germs on our hands and phones and surfaces around our homes and the effect that growing in a mask may have on especially acne.  We change our pillow once  week for germs, oil and skin cells, we need to think the same way about our products.

This starts out clear unlike the expected mud look and texture and has white bubbles.  It does not get nearly as insane as the other BUT i must say I felt like my skin was very clean in the end and not nearly as harsh as the other mask.  My skin was smooth, plump and fresh.  I might not have been a fluffy cloud but I must say I did prefer this mask’s end result far more.


Happy Masking
Love and Light

3 Sheet Masks that Changed my Skin

I am sitting here in bed writing this of course with an amazing sheet mask on… which one you ask? Its almost always one of these 4.  Each one has its own amazing benefits.

My number one favorite (and the one I am currently wearing is the Tosowoong Pure Propolis Mask.  Its for sure my go to when I just need a nice pick me up.  It soothes anytime I can see or feel a breakout happening it even helps with that.  Propolis is my favorite ingredient for soothing angry skin hands down.  They claim an entire bottle of essence is in every mask.  Im not sure I believe that claim but I will say it has the most amazing effects:

  • Very hydrating
  • Firming
  • Calming/Soothing (Great for acne and inflammation)
  • Serious brightening power

SKINFOOD is one of my favorite brands to this day.  Their philosophy is that their products are food for your skin and should be as natural as possible.  They make some of my favorite products (ill cover them another day) that are cult level and I tend to agree with them.  The fantastic effects in my opinion are:

  • Brightening effects
  • Firming
  • Super moisturizing

Leaders make a fantastic line of sheet masks easily available all over including Ulta (WHAT?!?!) They have a mask for any and every occasion.  They do exactly as they recommend and this one is no exception. It really combats some of the biggest struggles of aging:

  • Evens skin tone
  • Brightens tired skin
  • Firming

Sheet masks are like a mini vacation, it forces you to stop and calm down for a while and kist take some “you time” while being so refreshing and kind to your skin… Did I mention all of these make my wrinkles vanish? YUP!  I am all about the anti aging!

Love and Light


P.S. What are your favorite products to have a little “you time?”  I wanna hear all about them!

2 Products to Look 10 Years Younger

So aging is never an easy process, 31 not 30 for some odd reason hit me incredibly hard.  And my face started to show the over a decade at theme parks.

Having been in an industry for so long that requires extreme youth I tried everything to stretch my shelf life for as long as possible and I found two amazing anti aging products that took all that time off my face.  I had managed to extend my shelf life for over a decade, I could do it for longer!

The First amazing product I found literally did this before and after to my face.

Two weeks with this amazing product I discovered with my new love of Korean Beauty was the power of bee venom.

The claim was its supposed to help with

  • aging
  • sagging
  • even severe acne

It does this by causing a histamine reaction in your skin causing it to create collagen and plump up your skin.  Does it work? You tell me!  Thats with two weeks of using this product.

I can honestly say I can really see the difference between the two!

What is this miracle cream? I honestly found it at Marshall’s and Amazon!

So this is the miracle cream!  I’m aware it says mask but you can also layer it on and use it as a moisturizer.  Its not the most moisturizing of creams but its designed as a mask that can be used as a cream so I wasn’t expecting much hydration.  Its certainly an ummm…. intense sensation, ok lets be real it burns like hell but the results are worth it.

After a few days of use it becomes much less intense or you just get used to it.  To this day I am still not sure which.

Amazing Product Number 2

I was introduced to with Influenster (I was given this product to try for free but holy crap is it awesome!), the proof is in the pudding on this one.

I took their 14 day challenge and these were my results


Literally got rid of all of my wrinkles, every single last one!  My skin is clearly much firmer and this is 14 days later… HOLY MOLY!

  It has 2 active ingredients that do all the heavy lifting here

  • Pro-Xylane
  • Hyaluronic Acid

The Hyaluronic Acid in this cream in my opinion is the power house in this product!  It plumps and refines skin in a way unprecedented and is really one of the hot miracle products in beauty circles and now you can get it in the grocery or drug store.

For under $20 you can get this great cream and its even Prime!  You can start reversing your aging in two days… did I mention I LOVE prime?  Yup everything and no store needed!

I hope my two favorite anti aging creams bring you some extra self care, love and an extra boost of confidence for some pep in your step.

Love and light,


P.S. What are your beauty struggles?  A sagging face is always my struggle!

The Ultimate Pug Experience

I will neither confirm nor deny my extreme love for anything pug… lets be real I’m sitting here in my pug onesie, drinking wine from my pug mug while puggling (pug cuddling) with my baby Yoda, he’s actually snoring like crazy.  So when Holika Holika launched their Baby Pet Magic Mask Sheet set, including a pug anti wrinkle mask I was sold. Who cares if its a gimmick? I CAN MATCH MY BABY!!!  So Yoda and I sat down and gave this mask a try.


So mine for some reason was missing the wrinkles on the mask but the eyebrows in my opinion totally make the mask.

Its a very nice mask with:

  • nice and sturdy fabric with
  • tons of essence/serum on it.  (yes thats my pug onesie more photos to come)
  • and a super cute design

I left the mask on for 30ish minutes and that may or may not be wine in my “best dog mom” mug.


Yoda my less than willing picture taking buddy, wasn’t 100% sure what to make of the mask, granted he was more interested in sleeping than taking photos.

But i have to say my skin felt plump, smooth and soft after this mask.  Despite its potential to be SUPER gimmicky its actually the level of quality I have come to expect from Holika Holika.


So 4.5/5, I had to deduct a half point for my missing wrinkles on the mask which would have made this mask for me!  Yes, this is Yoda’s first appearance! Don’t be too shocked if you see his cute little squish face more, I mean after all I am a proud pug mom, heck he even made it into my about me!

Love and Light
