Dreamy items on my list

Mejuri Travel Case and Twin Necklace – I have almost this exact same necklace, but from LOFT; I’ve been wearing it so often recently that it’s definitely time to invest in a higher quality version. This little case also looks perfect for safely traveling with your jewelry in a cute, organized way.

Frank Body Birthday Cake Scrub, Illuminator, and Lip Tint in Send Nudes – I basically want to try everything from this brand. These three products are topping my wishlist since I would definitely use all of them! I love anything Birthday Cake scented and I’m almost out of my Sol de Janeiro Bod Buff too. I think I only own one or two highlighters that I never use, but this one looks like a subtle shine that would be perfect for everyday, and I’m obsessed with tinted lip balms and this one can be used on cheeks as well!

Pur-lisse BB Cream – I’ve been looking for a tinted moisturizer or BB Cream with physical SPF and I’ve read great reviews on this one. Love Purlisse’s face masks and I’ve been wanting to try some more of their K-beauty inspired line.

Bite Beauty French Pressed Gloss in Salted Caramel – I’m super into glossy lips right now and this color looks stunning! I adore Bite Beauty too.

First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Bendy Avocado Concealer – I’m loving the FAB Priming Moisturizer (reviewed here!) and would love to try their newest launch as well. IT’s supposed to by hydrating and stretch instead of crease, which sounds perfect!

Patchology Restoring Night Eye Gels – While I am slathering serums and masks all over my face and neck, I sometimes neglect my eye area. These seem like a super easy way to restore my delicate under-eye area overnight.

Ilia Summer Essential Face Palette – An all cream palette with usable colors! This screams summer and I would love to try more from Ilia, a clean beauty brand available at Credo.

Farmacy Honeymoon Glow – I still haven’t tried anything from Farmacy… I know! What am I waiting for? I just have so much skincare to get through, but this AHA/BHA serum may be my next purchase. It also has honey and hyaluronic acid, which my skin loves.

I think I’m going to start doing a wishlist monthly! It’s a great way to narrow down possible purchases and see what I’m loving that month. The theme here is clearly soft pinks, nudes, and golds. Plus a pop of blue, which is my favorite color.

Mini Mask Reviews

Rounding up four face masks

I love testing new face masks! I recently received a couple with my last Sephora order and had two from past Birchboxes, so I wanted to share my thoughts.

Tara Harper Resurfacing Mask ($58)

I really enjoyed the texture of this mask. It was a gel-like base that was easy to spread on the face. You are supposed to leave it on for 20 minutes and then remove with warm water. This little jar lasted about 3 uses and I loved it. It definitely made my skin softer and more radiant. I also love that the Tara Harper line uses safe ingredients, is effective, and feels luxurious.

Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask ($30)

I am obsessed with this clay mask! It’s great at drawing out impurities and it actually makes my pores look smaller. It feels like a mud mask but isn’t overly wet. It’s definitely thicker – almost like a cream. It does dry down so you know when to remove it, but it hasn’t dried my skin out. I only put in on my cheeks, chin, and forehead. Reed and I have both used this a couple times and there are a few uses left, so this is a generous sample. I would definitely buy the full size!

Farmacy Honey Potion Hydrating Mask ($46)

This mask is bright yellow and goes from a thick jello-like texture to a creamy foam once rubbed in. You’re supposed to feel warming while massaging for 2-3 and I don’t really enjoy that. I have some flakiness around my nose and this didn’t fix that either. I wanted to love this because I’ve heard such great things about Farmacy, but I won’t be using the rest of this.

Balance Me Radiance Face Mask ($26)

I tried a few things from Balance Me thanks to Birchbox and I’ve liked everything I’ve tried! This mask only requires 5 minutes and it’s a physical exfoliator and brightening mask in one. It has an interesting, natural scent that’s grown on me and I like how it dries down quickly. It’s also pretty affordable.

All in all, it was fun to try out these different face masks and 3/4 is a pretty good success rate to me! Have you tried any of these masks?
