Bliss Fabulous Skin-Reviving Rubberizing Mask

Every once in awhile I like to do a mask but when I heard about Bliss’ Fabulous Skin-Reviving Rubberizing Mask, I HAD to try it (rubberizing is what really caught my attention- not gonna lie).  Designed to temporarily envelop the skin’s surface, this rubber mask absorbs into the skin, peeling back to reveal purged pores and renewed skin.  The mask is also packed with skin brightening ingredients like vitamin C and Bilberry, which help refresh the skin.

Once I realized that I had to actually mix the mask myself, I was a little hesitant since I’m definitely lazy, ha, but it was surprisingly super easy and honestly kind of fun to make! The only thing that was more fun was the rubber peeling itself.  Hint: make sure to apply more than you think you need, which makes the peeling experience even better.

The pack contains six masks (one per week = six weeks worth of rubber fun) for the very reasonable price of $38.

Sponsored Post: Spa Breaks

So I’ve been in the midst of planning my best friend’s crazy New York City night out bachelorette party…and then she told me she wants to go to a spa, by the beach.  Great, good to know!  I immediately switched over to my new mission of finding the coolest, trendiest spa that the Jersey shore has to offer, which seems like it might get pretty difficult.  I never realized how hard it is to find a good spa outside your area until this moment…then I came across Spa Breaks.  Granted, it’s for the United Kingdom and doesn’t include U.S. cities but I’m totally melting over their robust selection of spas and even more so, their easy way to navigate around and search.

Let’s face it, spa days are the best days but if you can’t find the right spa for you, it’s pretty pointless.  I’m loving the spa weekend options so much that I might even suggest a quick trip across the pond to my friend as an alternate to the Jersey shore…and what an amazing alternate that would be, ha.

Reader Question: How do I get rid of embarassing blackheads?

Question: I need your beauty help! So embarassing, I have so many blackheads- more than I’ve ever had!  Nobody can see them, obvi, unless they are close up and personal but I feel gross.  What do I do?  Do I need a facial???  I’ve never had one!- “S”

Hi “S”!

I feel your pain.  I get tiny little blackheads on my nose that only I can see but it drives me nuts!  The best (and easiest) thing to do is to yes, get a facial.  The facialist will use a special tool to clear out the blackhead bacteria and while it is a little uncomfortable (especially around the nose area), it’s totally worth it.  Once you’re “cleaned out” you should use a blackhead specific product that also helps to minimize pore size.  Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner Blackhead and Oil Remover is, in one word, a-mazing.  It’s formulated with alpha and beta hydroxy acids that help loosen blackheads while absorbing excess oils from your pores, preventing new blackheads from forming.

As far as facials, you don’t need to go anywhere fancy just for a good extraction.  I’d suggest checking out SpaFinder.com and finding a semi-decent spa that has good reviews.

Good luck, girl- let me know how it goes. =)
