So, last week I broke my "no buy until Black Friday" and had a moment of pure weakness. I just could not resist the temptation that is Naruko. If you have been with me since the beginning aka my Youtube days, you will know that I have purchased, used and have loved Naruko skincare products in the past. I have slowly found my way back to Naruko thanks to some very gracious friends sending me decants/samples. So, one thing led to another (as it usually does) and boom, there I was browsing the Naruko website and adding items to my cart.
Here is the picture I posted on Instagram of my haul however, I did not post the free products that I received for spending over a certain amount. Naruko was very generous with the extras! Most companies will give you sample packets and some may even add in a sheet mask. Granted I spend way over $100USD but I received three sheet masks and two full size products.
Today I got the Mask Maven subscription for the month of September. I bought a year subscription almost one year ago and I think this, or possible next month is my last collection. I would love your ideas on good sheet mask subscription services. I am no novice when it comes to sheet masks but I love getting a surprise every month (no not that monthly surprise) and since I love masking, I gravitate more toward a monthly mask service.
The "theme" this month is Modern Masking....the latest in masking technology! I am actually excited to use a few of these masks from brands like Nohj and Ladykin!
Here is what came in this month's collection....
With the autumn season finally among us, I decided to take some time the past few days going through my makeup items. One of my go-to makeup items during the warmer months are powders, preferably loose powder. In the summer or warmer months, I tend to set my foundations or cushions with a light dusting of powder, focusing on my t-zone to control shine. In the summer, my skin type tends to be combination, especially in my t-zone so having a lightweight powder is ideal. At the beginning of summer, QDepot reached out and offered to send me an item for review purposes. Since I knew I would need a powder for the warmer days here in Portland, I picked out the Its Skin Dear My Muse Velvet Powder with SPF 15 #1 to test out. As many of you know if you read my blog or follow me on Instagram, I tend to gravitate toward powders that offer sunscreen protection. Although I never rely on the sun protection of powders on their own, they do help to offer further protection against the sun's damaging rays. I also love using SPF powders for a midday sunscreen touch up.
