This is gonna sound lame and very much like an excuse. BUT YES I AM COMMITTED TO MY WORK SO I DON'T HAVE TIME TO BLOG ANYMORE, LET ALONE DO ANYTHING MAKEUP AND BEAUTY RELATED ): And it is a shame.
So the best I can do is to write about anything whenever I have time and have a chance to try something. It sucks but here it is.. I don't think I can find a better way to do it. Because now I work 12 - 14 hours a day, 6 days a week and 7 if we get ready intense. It is tiring and very draining. So I take the time to sleep and rest whenever I get the chance.
Enough about the negative stuffs, I got something to show you! In my last post I wrote about my experience using LUSH's spot treatment and how it works really well. During that time I also took a sample of their fresh face mask called Cosmetic Warrior. This mask consists of many goodness that helps to tackle acne.
A little backstory - Ever since I started filming these few months and not getting enough water and rest, my forehead has been breaking out here and there. So I talked to the salesperson about it and she recommended me this fresh face mask as it is supposed to sooth and also clears the skin.
Some of the main ingredients in the mask are garlic, tea tree oil, egg white and grape skin. Each ingredient contributes to soothing, moisturising and even antiseptic properties! I decided to try it because I'm quite interested in the antiseptic effect (I believe comes from the garlic). I read up that this mask also works well with the spot treatment. Many people feedback that the smell of the mask is really strong, which I do agree. The garlic smell is quite strong but I didn't mind because I LOVE GARLIC. I only find the smell of tea tree oil mixed with egg white smell a little repulsive but nothing that I can't handle. *Yasssss*
The texture of the mask is a little like clay, you can see bits of the grape skin and that's about it. Every other ingredient is well mixed into the mask. After 10 minutes the mask dries which is time for me to rinse it off!
And let me tell you!!!! My skin feels so soft and calm. Just when I'm washing it off I can already feel the difference on my face ^_^ Also I can see my skin looking brighter too and refreshed. Afterwards I applied my spot treatment on the affected areas, which is mostly on my forehead. I finished it off with my go to Kiehl's ultra facial cream! Which is amazing and my holy grail now. I really think part of my good skin goes to its help in moisturising my skin and keeping it in good condition!
So there you go! I had a relaxing night in a long time and I haven't felt such good skin in awhile too. Does feel really good to pamper yourself once in awhile when you're out busy filming and torturing your skin in harsh conditions under the sun, in the sweaty heat and all haha
