Must try mud mask

Standard

Sunday nights have turned into beauty treatment night at my house! Tonight I tried something new. A couple months ago, I placed my first order from La Vita Lush. I ordered a body butter and eye shadow, but received a few other products complimentary, including this mud mask! 

This stuff looks and smells good enough to eat. The coffee smell made me sad that I couldn’t buy my new Keurig this weekend 😔 I ended up having to buy a new vacuum instead, because mine decided to die! Anyway, this stuff smells heavenly. I applied it and then got into the shower, then rinsed afterwards. I love that it has actual coffee grinds (or something that was exfoliating) and I scrubbed my face as I rinsed. My skin felt amazeballs afterwards. I actually want to scrub my whole body in this stuff now! 

The creator of this line, LeKesha Benson is also from my hometown. So, not only are southern girls cute as a button and sweet as pie, we’re also super talented! You guys should definitely check her products out! From what I understand, they’re also all natural. 

Have you guys tried any good beauty products lately? Do tell!!!

L’OrĂ©al voluminous lash paradise review 

Standard

Hey y’all! I’m still at it, trying to find the holy grail of mascaras. A few weeks ago, I purchased a new one by L’OrĂ©al, voluminous lash paradise. In waterproof of course! The verdict: I love it! If I take the time to precisely apply it, and after 3 coats, my lashes do look pretty darn fab. 

I believe I paid about $8 for it. The packaging is almost identical to Too Faced Better Than Sex, and from what I remember when I tried that one, it’s also very similar, so if you’re looking for dupes, this may be one! 

Of course, I’ll still be on the mascara prowl, but this one is pretty darn good. I like it more than just a little, so it’ll stay on the list 😊

Have you guys tried any good mascaras lately? 

Update: Whitening teeth with activated charcoal

Standard

Hey y’all! I’m not even going to apologize for being a slack blogger again…what can I say, LIFE happens! Anywho, I wanted to share an update of sorts. Months ago I wrote about whitening teeth with activated charcoal. I’m excited to share that I’ve mastered not making a huge mess! The secret? Dip wet toothbrush in charcoal and then squeeze a dab of toothpaste on the brush. That’s it! 

And also, just be mindful of how you brush, and no more messes! The mess is actually what kept me from using it more often! 
As a reminder, here’s what I use and it was purchased on Amazon. 

While my teeth aren’t super duper white, I’m happy with the results. 

I brush with the charcoal a couple times a week. I also notice how more clean my teeth feel after brushing with the charcoal. I’ve never asked my dentist if this is safe or not, so don’t come for me. I’d suggest asking a dental professional about this if you’re concerned. 

Have you guys tried this yet? And, any other whitening tips that you’ve come across?
