How’s your new year going? Mine is going pretty well. I’m trying to stick to resolutions, but as I have brownies baking in the oven now, I guess it’s not working! LOL!
This week I’m loving products that are perfect for a fresh start. They include a cleansing face mask, hydrating skin care, a luxe perfumen and a hair towel to reduce frizz:
Beauty 360 Rose & Pearl Brightening Multi-Use Face Mask Pods, 2CT ($5.99 USD) — For a quick all-over glow, the re-sealable, multi-use Rose & Pearl Brightening Multi-Use Face Mask Pods are infused with Pearl Extract, known to help tone and rejuvenate the complexion, and Rose Water, rich in antioxidants and known for its moisturizing properties.
What I think: Although I like sheet masks, I think my favorites are cream, clay or gel masks. There’s something satisfying about dipping fingers into goo and spreading it on the face! This mask smells like fresh roses and feels cool on the face. I left it on for about 10 minutes (can be left on for 5-10). It dried on my face and I removed it with a soft towel and warm water. My face felt firmer and very clean. It was a little dry, so I used moisturizer on it afterwards. I think this is a great mask to clean firm the skin!

Atelier Bloem 1614 Eau de Parfum ($195 for 100ml) –This slightly floral fragrance blends the dewy freshness of sweet clover and citrus with an understated woodsy musk, giving the perfume a subtly sun-warmed scent.
Black Pepper, Bergamot, and Neroli from Tunisia
Sambac Jasmine, Sweet Clover, Rose Water, and Orange Blossom
Teakwood, Sandalwood, and Musk
What I think: This sweet and spicy scent is really wearable. It’s the perfect winter floral, but will be nice in the Spring too. It’s pretty spendy, but it’s such a unique scent!

AQUIS Waffle Luxe Hair Towel ($35 USD) — Waffle Luxe sounds like she might ‘go on a bit’. Indeed, with increased surface area from the layered fabric, Waffle Luxe loves thicker hair requiring more water wicking. Great for African and Asian hair. New generation Aquitex improves absorbency and comfort. Wraps and tucks easily leaving hands free while hair dries. Dries fast with less friction, to minimize frizz and damage.
What I think: This towel is soft and really absorbent. I love using hair towels and keep them separate so my husband doesn’t use them as hand towels! This one is my current favorite, my hair dries faster and is soft and shiny once it dries.
