Can I just say how much I adore Dita Von Teese? She’s glamorous, unique, and not afraid to be pale and talk about sunscreen! Below I’ve added some of Dita’s skincare secrets below!
When I went to Miami in June, I was lucky enough to visit my first Lush store! There were so many wonderful products and all cruelty-free! Lush is an amazing company that believes in fresh, ethical ingredients and using the best natural ingredients possible. They are also widely known for their stance against animal-testing. They do not buy ingredients from companies that test on animals either. All their products are tested on humans, many of their products are vegan and most are vegetarian. There are a ton of other reasons this company is pretty awesome, but I’m going to keep it short so we can get on to the product. So here we go!
Unless you are sensitive or allergic to peppermint, any skin type can use this fantastic mask. Technically, Lush has this billed under “Cleansers”, but it’s really more of a mask/pack. I have a love for all things peppermint — this mask smells like mint chocolate chip ice cream, which reminds me of my childhood. I love to just open the little black jar and smell it! It’s heavenly and comforting!
It contains some lovely ingredients like evening primrose oil — which is anti-inflammatory and contains natural fatty acids which are essential for skin health. Peppermint oil is anti-septic so it will help reduce breakouts. African Marigold oil has a host of benefits: anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant to combat acne inflammations and breakouts.
My skin is noticeably softer and smoother after using Mask of Magnaminty, with reduced redness. I use this one or two times a week when my skin needs a little pick me up and when I don’t want to use one of my harsher face masks. This is a great mask to use when you just want to soak in the bathtub and relax because the peppermint fragrance is sooooo calming. And for $12.50, it’s a steal!
I’m happy to announce that I will start my new job on Monday! It’s not as an esthetician, unfortunately (no one is hiring here for an esthetician right now), but I will be going back to work for a bank. I’ve worked in banking since I was 19 years old and always enjoyed it.
I wasn’t expecting to go back to work so soon after moving, but this opportunity is too good to pass up and I definitely need to start working again since I took the last year off from work.
The great thing about going back to work and bringing in a full time income again means I’ll have extra money to buy skincare products which means more for me to review for all of you! It also means more money to save and fund my retirement accounts!
I’m totally excited and can’t wait to start my new job!
