A relaxing spa day with FarmHouse Fresh Will Dew mask and MegRhythm Eye Mask

I had to work really hard to write today’s post for you. Imagine how difficult it is to wear a soothing steam eye mask and relish in quiet for 10+ minutes and then apply a probiotic milk balancing mask with a gentle fragrance and calming feel. I know you feel for me. Of course you do. Luckily for you though these two products are easily available for you to indulge in yourself.

MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask and FarmHouse Fresh Organics WILL Dew Mask

Each month I try to write about the Mask/s of the Month and I’ve been saving the MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask and FarmHouse Fresh Organics WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask to share with you. Perfect timing since Makeup Wars has chosen to highlight favorite at home spa treatments. These two masks have made my October days, many of them stressful, much more relaxing and deserve this honor.

MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask

I’m a mask lover and include them as often as I can without overdoing them. The MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask has proven to be one of the most relaxing eye masks I’ve used. It’s totally different too than the many others I have. There is no mess with this easy mask so it’s easy to use at any time of day or night though I’ve only used it when I don’t have eye makeup on.

MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask

The box contains 7 masks that don’t activate until you tear it open to use. Don’t open it until you are ready to use it since as soon as you remove it from the packet it will begin warming up.

MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask

My advice is to apply it near your bed or couch because once it’s on your eyes are covered and you can lay back and enjoy 10 minutes or more of calming relaxation. They are easy to open and it doesn’t slip down since it has ear straps. As you lay back you’ll feel the temperature rising but never to an uncomfortable temperature.

MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask

When I’m using one I notice the heat and a slight damp effect. When I take it off I realize that it’s been steaming my eye area and it’s damp but not slimy. It’s just the steam.

MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask

After I’m done masking my eyes look and feel relaxed. There’s no magic but there is a feeling that my eyes are less hollowed out and smoother. It’s the perfect way to relax and do yourself some good. It’s available in 3 varieties on Amazon: Unscented (my choice), Lavender, and Citrus for only $10.99 for the pack of 7 (bringing the cost down to $1.57 each). MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask is a treat you’ll all love.

FarmHouse Fresh WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask

There’s no masking the fact that I love FarmHouse Fresh products and my newest acquisition is the FarmHouse Fresh Organics WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask. Talk about a soothing mask and this FHF product will be the first on your mind.

FarmHouse Fresh WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask

This wonderful organic mask is free of synthetic herbicides, pesticides, and GMOs. It’s also paraben- and sulfate-free like all FarmHouse Fresh products. What makes this unusual is that this nourishing mask uses probiotic coconut milk. It combines prebiotics along with the probiotics and certified organic rice extract. Plus there’s sweet almond oil which is “full of essential fatty acids, particularly linoleic acid, that can help maintain the skin barrier and decrease transepidermal water loss, reducing dryness and the look of wrinkles.”

FarmHouse Fresh WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask

That’s just about everything that my skin is looking for. As someone who’s fussy (obnoxiously so) about fragrance I can tell you that this is delightful – coconut with a touch of almond! Really?? How could it not.

FarmHouse Fresh WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask

It’s a very light feeling mask that is moist while on your skin and leaves it with a wonderful glow. It can be left on for as long as you like since it doesn’t dry down or crack. Since it’s so nourishing it can be used as often as you like. There are 14-18 applications in the jar ($40) and after 6 uses I can say I’ll easily get 18 out of it. It’s available on Amazon and Farmhouse Fresh’s website. While I have many masks and love my FHF ones to pieces I WILL buy this one again because I love to look like I have younger skin. Will you Dew this one?

I’m exuberant over Exuviance Eye Complex and Intensive Eye Masques

Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex and Intensive Eye Treatment Masque

As an avid fan of eye cream I was probably a little overexcited to receive Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex. Then the excitement doubled when I found out that they also sent their Intensive Eye Treatment Masque. Two favorites for me to relish!

Exuviance and NeoStrata are sister companies and two lines I tried years ago and have wanted to become reacquainted with again. I envy my blogger friends when I see their reviews from these lines since my past experiences have been wonderful.

Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex

Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex is a beautiful light to the touch eye cream that I’m enjoying to the max. It feels soothing on, blends in nicely so that I don’t feel stickiness under my eyes, and is loaded with good for my skin ingredients.

  • Formulated with Gluconolactone and Lactobionic Acid (PHAs)
  • Provides antioxidant protection
  • Contains Vitamins A, C, and E
  • Hydrates with a soothing blend of botanicals

Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex

This soothing eye cream is good for wrinkles and fine lines. My undereye area feels well hydrated and I feel like the ingredients are good anti-aging ones.

Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex

I’m sad that I’m almost done with the jar since it’s been such a pleasure to use. It’s fragrance free as all eye creams should be and at $44 it’s well priced for such a quality product. Right now their website has 20% off and free shipping so it’s a perfect time to try this for yourself.

Exuviance Intensive Eye Treatment Masques

Regular readers of Beauty Info Zone know that I’m a mask afficionado and using these eye masks from Exuviance has been a treat. I’ve got one pack left for this weekend and I know that my appearance will be better because I’m going to use these again. The Intensive Eye Treatment Masques are wonderful for the delicate eye area.

There are 12 packets, each containing 1 undereye mask. They don’t feel mask like, they just feel like I’m adding lots of moisture and protection to my undereye area. They are a quick fix but they give me long lasting results.

Exuviance Intensive Eye Treatment Masques

It takes just 10 minutes (though I’ve left them on longer at times) and doesn’t leave a film behind. I massage the serum that’s left after onto my skin to continue minimizing the look of my fine lines.

Exuviance Intensive Eye Treatment Masque

Besides being a soothing treatment they are good for undereye puffiness. The anti-oxidants protect against free radicals for aging skin. I find that the results last for about 2 days.

  • Lactobionic Acid refreshes and soothes
  • Bionic treatment firms skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of crow’s feet
  • Vitamins A, C, and E provide antioxidant protection and restore skin

These masques and the eye cream are wonderful companions but if you can only get one I’d suggest the Hydrating Eye Complex since I’ve seen long term results with it. That doesn’t mean that Saturday night won’t be enhanced with an Intensive Eye Treatment Masque prior to apply my makeup. I’m ready to pull out all the stops for a night out. Have you had the pleasure of using Exuviance products?  —  Marcia

available at Ulta, Dermstore, Lovely Skin, and their own website.

3 more to make sure my eyes score: EndureLash, Borghese, and My Fair Lashes

Last week I shared 3 of the eye products that I’m using that knock it out of the ballpark and today I have 3 more that finish the job so I can win the game. Today’s picks are Endure Lash Organic Eyelash Cloths, Borghese Restorative Eye Sheet Mask and My Fair Lashes mascara. Two of the three are going to be new brands for you to learn about and that’s why I’m here!!

Endure Lash Organic Eyelash Cloths, Borghese Restorative Eye Sheet Masks, My Fair Lashes mascara

First I need to wear an eye mask which is one of my very favorite things to do. The Borghese Restorative Eye Sheet Masks are ones that are treats for my eyes. These are a brightening and hydrating treatment for the eyes. And they feel as good on as they sound.

Borghese Restorative Eye Sheet Mask

These can be used any time of the day or evening but I love them before I apply makeup because they make my undereye area look well rested. Directions for use are so simple: Cleanse skin and pat dry. Remove the clear protective film, place the hydrogel eye mask under the eye and discard the white protective sheet. Relax and leave mask on for 5-15 minutes. Remove each mask and gently massage excess product into the skin. Use 1-2 times per week.

Borghese Restorative Eye Sheet Mask

These hydrogel masks feel light as air, are completely comfortable, don’t slip down, and make me feel great. And the single packets are easy to pack up for a journey. The key ingredients show why these are a home run:

  • Acai Fruit Extract and Avocado Fruit Extract: help firm and soothe skin
  • Arnica Montana Fruit Extract: helps refine skin texture
  • Hyaluronic Acid: builds a moisture barrier and prevents moisture loss
  • Caffeine: boosts skin elasticity
  • Pomegranate Fruit Extract and Olive Fruit Oil: conditions and revives skin’s vibrancy

Now I’m going to apply mascara and I have a new one that I’ve been using: My Fair Lashes mascara from Velvet 59. This is totally unique in so many ways that we can appreciate.

Most important is that this is a vegan mascara. It took Velvet 59’s Paris Manning two years to perfect this mascara. All Velvet 59 products are cruelty free too.

My Fair Lashes mascara

My Fair Lashes is smudge proof, flake proof and quick-drying. It’s a deep black that is great for length and definition. The wand is very unique. It has a flat edge and a flat ball tip. (That’s an oxymoron if I ever heard one.)

My Fair Lashes mascara

My Fair Lashes mascara

Directions say to wipe off the excess product and then on your top lashes apply in zig-zag motions. When you get to your bottom lashes use the tip of the wand with the flat side closest to your face. This way you are apply it to get the most out of your bottom lashes and the inner corners. “The My Fair Lashes wand has a flat side which can be tipped and tilted to reach even the smallest, hardest to reach lashes.”

My Fair Lashes mascara

The first few days I used the mascara I wasn’t so sure if this was a good one for my eyes but now that I’ve been using it for several weeks I’m happy with it. I get a little volume from two coats while it makes my lashes appear longer and well defined.  So far I haven’t had to use an eyelash comb either. It doesn’t smudge when I apply it on my bottom lashes (nor the top) which is rare for me. It’s the reason I barely use mascara there but My Fair Lashes changes that for me.

Days over and it’s time to wash up. That’s where ENDURE LASH ORGANIC EYELASH CLOTHS come into play. These cloths were originally made for eyelash extensions but I’ve never had extensions and I’m finding EndureLash to be wonderful for removal of mascara. All you need is warm water and the cloth!

EndureLash Organic Eyelash Cloths

There are 2 different cloths or you can buy the combo pack. The Eye Makeup Organic Drying Cloth in the combo pack is 8″x8″ and is made of 60% organic bamboo viscose, 30% organic cotton, and 10% spandex ponte. This is the one you want if you have extensions since it doesn’t budge them nor snag on them. You’ll get fewer lost lashes between fills.

EndureLash Organic Drying Cloth

I throw this in the laundry with my dark load so it saves me money on buying cotton pads and eye makeup remover.

EndureLash Organic Eye Makeup Removal Cloth

The smaller cloth is the Organic Eye Makeup Removal Cloth and this works like magic for me. I use warm water, apply it to my eyes without rubbing and voila my mascara is gone. Really truly gone. I know it’s on the cloth but I don’t see it and there’s nothing that remains on my face. I’ve used this with 3 mascaras just to prove it works as great as I thought. The Eddie Funkhouser mascara coats lashes so you’ll see that on your face but it washes off with warm water too.

EndureLash Organic Eye Makeup Removal Cloth in bag

It comes with a mesh bag for storage and laundry. Put it in the bag and run it through with your washload. Now this doesn’t remove my shadows unless I use a very natural look so I do have to use eye makeup remover or a micellar water to do that. But the Organic Drying Cloth does get off my other eye makeup better. I can tell you right now that this mesh bag and removal cloth are coming on my next vacation.

I’ve rounded the bases with these three products and the ones from last week and my eyes are the ones that are winning. I’ve found some products that work great for me and that I’m sure will work as wonderfully for you. —  Marcia

 

It’s mask time – me™ glow beauty boosting eye mask – you’ll want this

When it comes to facial masks I’m your girl. I love trying them out to see which are going to make the most difference in my life. Often the ones I write about are best for certain types of skin but my choice to share with you today is one that we can all use. I’m not sure if you’ve heard of the company called me. This is one of the most unique companies I’ve worked with. They create products that others haven’t thought of yet. me logo

me™ is all about innovative beauty. Their products are cutting-edge and use new technology. Not only that they don’t charge an arm and a leg for their innovations.

They sent the GLOW Beauty Boosting Eye Mask to test out and I’m pretty amazed by it.

me™ GLOW beauty boosting eye mask isn’t like the masks I normally review. There are no serums or moisturizers in this. The secret is in the 100% copper infused polyester material that comprises the outside of the mask.

The threads in the mask are infused with copper which is an essential mineral that is known to enhance skin appearance. My experience with this is that they are right in this statement. me™ states that you’ll see a difference in as little as 2 weeks.

I’ve been using this for over a month though I don’t use it nightly. I take it to bed with me but don’t put it on until I’m really ready to fall asleep. I have insomnia and some nights I don’t dare to wear this but other nights I can slip it on as that tired feeling comes over me or when I wake up for my 3:30 bathroom call.

It’s very comfortable with its satiny lightweight feel and the strap opens to adjust to everyone’s head. I keep it on loosely though not so loose that it slips around. If it interrupts my sleep, I just slip it off.

But it’s the outcome that made me want to write about this for today’s Makeup Wars. I have not used undereye concealer for the last 3 weeks. I find that I don’t really need it. Yes I have some circles under my eyes but they’ve always been there. They look lessened to the point of being comfortable without concealer. The combination of these great copper infused mask and the Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm I’m using has been dynamite.

Well worth giving it a chance!  —  Marcia
